Refine Oily/Blemished Skin

 

Oily skins are characterized by a constant over activity of the sebaceous glands, to produce excess sebum. On the other hand, oily skins are more susceptible to comedones, blackheads, build up of dead skin cells on the surface of the skin and blemishes.

If the face is not cleansed and exfoliated, the keratinized cells build up and the excess sebum produced, accumulates within the pores and they become blocked. Bacteria (Propionibacterium acnes and Staphylococcus epidermidis) favor this condition and begin to grow within the pores, feeding on the sebum present, and releasing fatty acid waste.
