Does your skin have a porous, humid, and bright appearance? It is caused by excessive production by sebaceous glands, and usually determined by genetic and/or hormonal causes. It is frequent in adolescents and young people under 30 years old, and usually related with the occurrence of acne. Our instinct is to strip your skin of oil during cleansing, but that will continue the cycle of oil over-production. Help your skin begin to balance it's oil production by gently deep cleansing to remove dead skin cells trapped by sebum (face oil) while avoiding the "squeaky clean" feeling.
