Oily skin is a problem for so many people and the object of a great deal of frustration. Now, the suite of Pevonia Botanica Oily Skin products addresses the condition with a set of effective ingredients and a regimen of treatment. Dermatologists know that the source of oily skin is the over-production of sebum, the natural oils produced by microscopic glands at the base of hair follicles. This sebum is natural and beneficial – as long as it isn’t over-produced. When there is too much sebum, several things happen: The sebum can clog the pores, the pH of the layer of protective oils changes, allowing bacteria to grow (including the kind that inflames the oil-producing glands, causing acne) and the skin cells, which should lay flat like tiny overlapping shields, begin to get out of order and become prone to flaking.
Pevonia Botanica Oily Skin products cleanse the sebum, restore pores, provide anti-bacterial protection and allow the skin cells to return their natural, mattified order. The dreaded T-zone of forehead, nose and chin, need not look and feel oily, shiny and greasy.
Additional Pevonia Botanica Oily Skin Information
Counteracting the problem of oily skin has to be done carefully to avoid damaging skin cells. The sebum should not be removed roughly, with harsh and damaging chemicals, which can make the condition worse than at the beginning of treatment. Pevonia Botanica Oily Skin products regulate sebum levels, rather than radically stripping it from the skin. They reduce the sebum with natural ingredients, hydrating the skin so it doesn’t go to the other extreme and become dry.
Pevonia Botanica Oily Skin re-establishes the proper pH balance, provides anti-bacterial protection and helps heal and restore cell health. A gentle Pevonia Botanica cleanser for oily skin should be used to remove dead skin cells and dirt deposited by the environment. Morning and evening applications of Pevonia Mattifying Oily Skin Cream control the amount of sebum on the surface and in pores. Steam-distilled pine needle extract and natural botanical oils provide an antiseptic control while preventing over-drying of the skin.
Alcohol-free Pevonia Oily Skin Lotion, applied morning and evening, gently removes excess sebum with witch hazel bark extract, while geranium oil provides antibacterial protection. Lactic acid, a component of milk, and aloe leaf gel moisturize and smooth the skin, while stimulating collagen production. Before sleep, an application of Pevonia Mattifying Oily Skin Mask uses two clays traditionally used in skin care, bentonite and kaolin, to absorb excess oils. Hops extract provides an anti-inflammatory effect, to help heal damage from bacterial infection. The mask, rinsed off after ten minutes cleans, revitalizes and hydrates the skin, promoting a radiant tone.
