Oily skin is characterized sebaceous gland overactivity. While intended to provide natural barrier protection to the skin to prevent over-drying, in some these glands can be stimulated to overproduce sebum, or oil, causing the skin to appear greasy/shiny, have a rougher texture, and resulting in enlarged pores. Oily skin is often seen in individuals between the ages of 13 and 30, when skin activity is heightened by hormonal changes.
Traditionally oily skin is treated with astringents or other substances that dry the superficial layers of the skin, temporarily improving the appearance of the skin while stimulating the action of the sebaceous glands in the long-term, ultimately making the problem even worse. Our BioTech Beauty products work to reduce oil production in the long term through the normalization of sebaceous gland function– generating non-drying, long-lasting results.
