Congested & Oily Skin Treatment

Congested and oily skin is a very common concern, often associated with frequent acne, breakouts, or blemished skin. It is the result of the overproduction of sebum from sebaceous glands, and can cause the facial complexion to appear shiny.

What Causes Oily & Congested Skin?

Sebum is produced in the sebaceous glands, located under the skin surface. Pores secrete sweat and sebum from the sebaceous and sweat glands, providing the skin with a natural barrier against the environment. Excess oil production commonly occurs as a result of using incorrect use of skincare products, puberty, or PCOS. Excess oil causes the pores to enlarge to allow the sebum to flow. Subsequently, these pores can become clogged with oil, dirt and dead skin cells.

Congested & Oily Skin Treatment

Enlarged, congested pores tend to be most noticeable in those with oily and/or congestion prone skin. Causes of large pores can also be due to genetic predisposition.

Very dry skin can also cause pores to flatten and appear bigger. Enlarged pores are also a natural part of the aging process. As collagen levels deplete and skin becomes less firm and plump, the pores begin to enlarge.

How to Prevent Oily Skin

Excessively oily skin can be prevented by implementing the correct products for your skin type, avoiding comedogenic or occlusive products, and regular treatment. Congested skin can be minimised by cleaning the face regularly, including thoroughly removing all makeup and SPF each night. Salicylic acid and niacinamide are two of the most common skincare products used to address oily skin concerns.
