Oily Skin Breakouts And Plant Based Face Oils
If you have oily skin you'll often find that you're prone to breakouts such as spots, pimples, blackheads and other oily skin conditions. The more often oily skin is cleaned dry the worse it seems to get which can become increasingly frustrating. A little know-how and some help from plant based face oils could help combat these frustrations and help you take the right steps to prevent further breakouts.
Dead Skin and Sebum
In balanced healthy skin, sebum (the oily substance produced by sebaceous glands) is produced by the skin to create a skin barrier which protects and prevents moisture loss. Oily skin types tend to overproduce sebum which disrupts its normal function. The excess in sebum forms plugs over the pores and mixes with dead skin cells to form clumps that block pores. These clumps create the perfect conditions for bacteria to grow which is responsible for oily skin breakouts.
The most logical way to tackle the problem of oily skin breakouts is to prevent clumps forming by cleansing the skin. However, effective cleansing needed to remove oily skin build up causes moisture loss due to the disrupted skin barrier.
Having oily skin is due to an imbalance in the skin which causes the sebaceous glands to try and compensate for moisture loss by overproducing sebum. The more moisture lost through cleansing, the more sebum the skin produces and thus creates an endless cycle of breakouts.
Plant Based Face Oils
Plant oils are extremely valuable as they contain essential fatty acids and anti-inflammatory compounds to help regulate sebum production. Oily skin types are often deficient in linoleic acid (found in some plant oils) that repairs the skin barrier and helps balance out the skin. Therefore, Crush N Mix are proud to have created a face oil with the perfect blend of plant oils that is ideal for oily skin.
