Your genes play a role in determining your skin type, and it’s especially true for people with oily skin. Because they have larger sebaceous glands, their skin produces excess sebum. Aside from having a shiny appearance, oily-skinned people often have enlarged pores and are more prone to acne and skin blemishes. While you can’t change your skin type, there are ways to manage your skin’s oil production and reduce your chances of getting a breakout. Here they are!
If you wear makeup, a facial wash isn’t enough to remove all traces of cosmetics from your skin. Place a few drops of Sebium H2O Micelle Solution on a cotton pad and gently swipe it all over your face to remove makeup, excess oil and other skin buildup.
Cleanse regularly but don’t overdo it! While it’s important to remove the oil and prevent your pores from getting clogged, washing your face too often can actually make your skin produce more sebum to keep it from drying out. Use a gentle, soap-free cleanser like Sebium Purifying Cleansing Gel to avoid stripping your face of necessary moisture.
Stay shine-free with a face primer. Apply Sebium Pore Refiner to keep your face matte and minimize the appearance of pores. A water-based formula with a light consistency is more comfortable to wear for oily skin, and can also be used as a primer for makeup.
Get the right treatment for your blemishes. Don’t try to remove whiteheads, blackheads and pimples on your own; ask a dermatologist to prescribe an appropriate skin care regimen for your needs. Switch to Sebium Global Intensive Purifying Care as a leave-on treatment that you can wear during the day. It will help regulate oil production, and contains salicylic acid to treat blemishes.
Bioderma Sebium H2O Micelle Solution, Sebium Purifying Cleansing Gel, and Sebium Pore Refiner are available in select Watsons stores while Sebium Global Intensive Purifying Care is available from leading dermatological clinics.
