Oily skin Tips|Four product designs to prevent skin problems: large pores/comedones/acne


As the temperature gradually rises, many people suffer from “glossy faces”! Excess oil on the face will not only look greasy but also arouse a series of skin problems. This article explains why faces always feel oily, what skin problems will cause and how we can treat oily skin properly.

Oily skin mainly comes from “sebaceous gland secretion” & “epidermal keratinocyte metabolism.”

Sebaceous gland secretion: The sebaceous glands, each attached to a hair follicle, produce sebum. The sebum flows into the hair follicle and then is wicked onto the skin by hair. Affected by various factors, such as weather, diet, stress, and so on, the secretion of sebum increases, so our facial skin feels oily.

Epidermal keratinocyte metabolism: Epidermal keratinocytes also produce lipids during metabolisms, such as sphingolipids, free cholesterol, and free fatty acids. Generally, it can help moisturize the skin and defend the body. However, its excessive production will cause extra oil on the face skin.

Excessive oil leads to enlarged pores/comedones/acne and other skin conditions

Once excessive oil on the face isn’t washed off in time, it will store in the pores and cause “enlarged pores”. As the old cutin accumulates, the pores are clogged finally, and then “someone” appears. Propionibacterium acnes begin to build up in the old cutin since lipids are their favorites. Due to a large amount of bacterial reproduction, the comedones is inflamed and “acne” comes into existence.

Daily skincare advice for oily skin

Step1: Anti-acne Toner – tighten the pores

In the daily skincare routine, we can apply anti-acne toner on the oily parts of the face, for example, the T-zone. Its astringents can take off excess oil and tighten the pores through their reaction with the protein in the front of the sebaceous gland. We recommended using products with low-irritant ingredients such as skullcap, witch hazel, seaweed extract, etc.

Step2: Peeling Essence – removing the old cutin

And then, apply the peeling essence to accelerate the peeling of old cutin and unclog the pores, which can improve acne-prone skin. Acidic ingredients are commonly used, such as mandelic acid, fruit acid, salicylic acid, and so on. Adding a safe and sufficient amount can effectively improve the metabolism rate of the stratum corneum.

Step3: Acne Pen – strengthen the protection

We can use the acne spot pen if acne appears on the face. After pressing the acne gently, a protective film will form on it quickly, strengthening the epidermis’s protection. In addition, the appliance of licorice essence, vitamin B3 and so on can block melanin and prevent the formation of acne blemishes.

Step4: Acne Concealer – cover the spot

If you are worried that the spots will affect your makeup, use acne concealer. It can cover the area and repair the skin at the same time. Products with smooth and delicate textures tend to avoid creasing and look natural. In addition, long-lasting effects make flawless makeup last longer, especially in hot weather.
