One of the most common skin problems people report is having an oily skin. It gets really difficult to pull off a perfect look if you have those blotches of oil shining bright on your skin. One of the main causes of oily skin is sebaceous (oil) glands in your skin which produce excessive oil. These glands have more to do with your hormones and genetic makeup than your habits. Sebaceous gland or Sebum is made of fats to keep skin moisturized and hydrated. There are several treatments for oily skin with BIODERMA.
Excessive sebum results in oily skin which also leads to acne. However, there are countless ways in which you can control the amount of oil your skin secretes and keep your skin looking fresh and glowing.
