My skin is oily.

How should I take care of her to give her the best?

Get to know and learn how to take care of your oily skin

Oily skin is skin that is characterized by an overproduction of sebum. Sebum is the skin’s natural oil. This substance helps the skin to protect itself against external aggressions by covering it with a small oily film. However, its excess can cause an imbalance in the skin barrier.

But can oily skin be dehydrated?

Of course, oily skin also needs moisturizing and this is one of the main mistakes made with this skin type. Excessive cleansing, the use of overly aggressive products or a lack of moisturizing can turn your skin into dehydrated oily skin.

How can I identify if I have dehydrated oily skin?

  • Dull appearance: the lack of water can be visible on your skin showing it dull and not very luminous.
  • Lack of elasticity: since the dermis does not retain enough water to keep it healthy and cared for.
  • Enlarged pores and “dehydration stretch marks”: fine lines that appear when facial muscles are tightened. Some areas of the face may become scaly.
  • Increased sensitivity and tendency to irritation and redness.

What causes oily skin?

Hormonal causes

Hormonal changes can stimulate the increased appearance of sebum. During puberty, pregnancy or menopause there is usually an increase in sebum, so the skin tends to be oilier.

Stress and anxiety

There is a close relationship between stress, anxiety and overproduction of sebum, as during these periods the mechanisms that control sebum are not in balance and, in addition, cortisol is secreted, a hormone that causes inflammation in the skin and excess sebum.


Environmental pollution such as dust, dirt or dust mites clog pores causing excess sebum to accumulate. In addition, excess blue light (due to overexposure to screens) also causes skin damage and is related to excess sebum.

Hereditary factors

Oily skin may be determined by genetics.


Oily skin is closely related to diet. Some bad habits such as excess sugars, carbohydrates, salt or dairy products can lead to increased sebaceous secretion.

Incorrect beauty routine

Insufficient cleansing causes impurities to accumulate and pores to become clogged; similarly, over-cleansing can cause an imbalance in the skin barrier. It is also necessary to avoid overly aggressive cleansers, as they can cause a rebound effect because by drying out the skin, our body will produce more oil to compensate for the loss, causing a rebound effect.
