Combating oily skin with Phyt's

Understanding your skin type can be difficult and knowing how to treat it can be even harder. Phyt’s have a skincare range dedicated and designed for every skin type, with products that you can implement into your daily routine. Let’s talk about oily skin…

Oily skin is the result of the overproduction of sebum from sebaceous glands. These glands are located under the skin’s surface. Is your T-zone oily, or do you feel like it becomes shiny throughout the day? Are you prone to blackheads, pimples or acne? If your answers were yes, then you more than likely have oily skin.

Oily skin can be caused by many things, from simple things that can’t be helped such as genetic heritage, to more lifestyle choices such as your diet. Hormones are also another factor of oily skin as hormonal changes have an impact on sebaceous glands. An increased number of androgenic hormones (testosterone, progesterone) boost sebum production. The major sex hormone in men is testosterone, which is why men tend to have oilier skin than women.

Oily skin does have its consequences. Due to the build up of oil on the skin, the pores may become clogged, and it could lead to an increased amount of acne breakouts. It is very important stick to a cleansing routine when suffering with oily skin. Cleansing the skin twice a day with a product like the Phyt’s Foaming Gel Cleanser, will remove all dirt, grime and excess sebum from the surface of the skin. After cleansing the skin, it is important to restore moisture into the skin by using a hydrating moisturiser. To complement the cleansing of the skin, an exfoliator and face mask like the Phyt’s Exfoliating Purifying Mask can be used once a week. Doing this will hep draw any impurities and extra dirt that an everyday cleanser may not reach.
