The problem? Sebum.
When treating oily skin and impurities, cleansing your face is key.
A common mistake people often make is to wash their face with aggressive cleansers to try and get rid of oily skin.
But nothing could be more wrong. Frequent and aggressive cleansing leads to overproduction and faster secretion of sebum, making the problem even worse (the rebound effect).
Instead, it’s a much better idea to wash your skin every day with a specific cleanser that can free up blocked pores without causing irritation.
Even better if, after the cleanser, you also use a toner with astringent and purifying properties.
Vitamins and probiotics for impurities
Some of the things we usually associate with food can also be extremely valuable for our skin, even when applied to the outside. Vitamins and probiotics are just some of these precious gifts we can give ourselves.
In fact, certain probiotics used as cosmetic ingredients can have a rebalancing effect on our skin.
For example, our very own Dermo-Bioma is a probiotic extract (Lactobacillus Platarum) which restores the balance of the skin’s microflora and fights against the onset of blemishes.
At the same time, vitamin B3 (also known as Niacinamide) reduces sebum production and limits redness of the skin.
Naturally purifying ingredients
One ingredient whose natural properties can be used to treat impurities is burdock.
In fact, both burdock roots and leaves are rich in sebum-normalising and purifying substances.
Another useful cosmetic for treating oily skin is Kaolin clay: a powder that purifies the skin by absorbing excess sebum.
Now that we know cosmetics for treating blemishes all contain different active ingredients with different roles, it’s obvious that the best way to use them is by combining them. So there you have it: your complete beauty routine for treating oily skin!
