Oil Control

What is Oil Control?

When oil levels on your complexion become too high, you must take steps to control the amount of sebum that lingers on your complexion. In addition to creating an unsightly shine, having too much sebum on your skin can lead to other skin care problems.

Treatments

There are oil control methods such as blotting products, proper skin care regimen, and medical treatments that will help with oil control. There are also several key ingredients which will help with excess levels of sebum in the skin. Always check with your dermatologist.

All about Oil Control

If you struggle with oily skin, you may wonder why your skin needs oil at all, wishing you could eliminate it completely to end your skin care woes forever. Sebum, the natural oil produced by the sebaceous glands in your skin, is absolutely vital to the health of your complexion. Your skin is constantly being stretched and pulled by the muscles beneath it and must remain supple to bend and conform. The sebum in your skin helps to keep the tissue lubricated and prevents the cellular damage that can lead to dry skin.

The Importance of Oil Control

When oil levels on your complexion become too high, you must take steps to control the amount of sebum that lingers on your complexion. In addition to creating an unsightly shine, having too much sebum on your skin can lead to other skin care problems. Deposits of oil typically stagnate in your pores, where they can mix with dead skin cells, dirt, sweat and makeup residue to form blackheads and cause the infections that lead to acne breakouts. Excess oil can also stretch out the tiny tubes that form the pores, making their openings visible on your complexion. This is known as enlarged pores.
