October 13, 2021 (IANSlife) Oily skin is one of the most common skincare pressure points that is searched on the web and talked about widely. While there maybe numerous causes for oily skin, ranging from diet, lifestyle habits, climatic conditions, medication, cosmetics used, it is important to understand what our skin goes through in order to find a suitable solution to treat the problem at hand.
We experience oily skin when sebaceous glands in the skin make too much sebum. Sebum is the waxy, oily substance that protects and hydrates the skin. Sebum is vital for keeping the skin healthy. However, too much sebum can lead to greasy skin, clogged pores, and acne.
Apart from lifestyle and dietary changes, adding the humble serum to your daily skincare routine could actually be the simplest and most effective cure for oily skin.
Dr. Aparna Santhanam, Dermatologist & Skin Expert to ITC Charmis, says, “Oily skin has been a pertinent ethno - a genetic problem for Indian women. To combat oiliness, one must restore the skin’s sebum balance without depleting moisture and to do that it is imperative to invest in a beauty solution that is both an efficacious and yet a right-weight formulation. I recommend opting for a face serum that comprises essential skincare ingredients such as Hyaluronic Acid, and Salicylic Acid that hydrate and exfoliate without making the skin greasy or super dry. An added benefit of Vitamin C will serve as a powerful antioxidant that will provide radiant skin. Regular use of serum with these ingredients will help in resolving the problem of oily skin and reduce acne spots as well.”
So, the next time you are struggling with oily skin, just turn to your efficient beauty aide – the Serum and witness your skin transform. It is recommended to use a face serum at least twice a day (after a shower and with your night time skin routine) to maximize its effect.
