When we talk about skin types, one of the categories is certainly the most problematic one. It requires a lot of effort and delicate approach in the everyday face care. Can you guess which one? It’s the oily skin, prone to enlarged pores, acne and blackheads.
Oily skin is not just a problem for teenagers. It affects adults as well! An increasing number of mature women and men are still looking for the right solution and care for acne, excessive sebum, enlarged pores and blackheads.
In order to understand the importance of proper care of such a demanding skin, and to choose the right cosmetic products that will effectively eliminate the problems, you need to understand the mechanism of this skin type.
Oily skin is largely conditioned by genetic factors and the balance of the sex hormones in the human body. The imbalances and fluctuations of these hormones, in puberty as well as in the period of menopause, can lead to excess sebum production. This oily secretion is produced by the sebaceous glands, positioned in the middle, binding layer of the dermis.
One of the main culprits for the excessive secretion of sebum are the elevated levels of circulating dihydrotestosterone, which is a steroid androgen or a male sex hormone. The bihydrotestosterone (DHT), as well as other androgenic derivatives, are also found in the female body in small quantities, and are secreted by the ovaries and the adrenal glands. And, if the hormonal balance is disturbed, and the androgen levels become disproportionately higher in relation to the levels of estrogen and progesterone (the female sex hormones), the disturbance will also reflect on the skin, primarily by intensified tone and increased appearance of acne. In addition to the increased amount of sebum, acne also form due to the accumulation of dead cells in the surface layers of the skin, as well as the presence of bacteria, which cause inflammatory reactions.
Enlarged pores are not a medical problem, but can often be unattractive. Pores are actually the areas where the channels of the oily glands reach the skin’s surface. When there’s an excessive work of the sebaceous glands, the pores enlarge and often get clogged with dirt and oil, forming acne, blackheads and whiteheads. Fortunately, many proven strategies can help you reduce these skin problems.
As the face is one of the most visible parts of the human body, the oily glow of the skin, enlarged pores, acne and blackheads can be a very serious disadvantage. They can disturb the self-confidence in many young people, hampering their normal functioning in the everyday social situations.
People with such dermatological problems can often become introvert, avoid socializing and hanging out with other people. Regardless of how big your skin problems might seem, avoid the use of aggressive agents, which may further damage your skin, such as toning your face with alcohol. Also, avoid the excessive use of makeup to cover your disadvantages. All this will only exacerbate and weaken the already disturbed balance of the hydrolipid barrier on your skin. This will further make your skin more sensitive and reactive, and subject to bacterial penetration. In the end, this will make a vicious cycle of inefficiency in treatment and difficult-to-treat skin inflammations.

In this article, we show you how you can use an egg and toilet paper to treat your problems with acne, blackheads, skin scarring, excess oil and dirt.
