A lot of factors contribute to breakouts and oily skin, some being internal (hormones) and others being external (poor skincare) here is a little bit of information as to why your skin could be behaving this way;


Poor Skin Care

The best thing to avoid breakouts is to be properly cleansing and exfoliating your skin, keeping the skin clean will help prevent blocked pores and congestion. Little things like changing your makeup to mineral makeup and properly removing it at night time will improve the skin greatly.

A lot of the time when you are dealing with oily congested skin you use products that dry the skin out to get rid of oil when it actually does the opposite, it tricks your oil glands into thinking your skin is dry and produces MORE oil, drying the skin out will only just cause sensitivity and more redness, so it’s best to be on proper skin care to protect and heal the skin.


Genetics

Those who suffer with genetic oily/acneic skin produce excess of a hormone called dihydrotestosterone (DHT), this hormone triggers your oil glands to secrete more sebum therefore resulting in larger pores, greasy skin, and congestion, due to it being genetic its best to use proper skin care and advanced medical grade peels here at LaseMedics to maintain the skin and control it.


Hormonal

As we age our body goes through different hormonal changes, too much of one hormone can affect your oil glands and cause them to become overactive, hormonal oily acneic skin can be caused from underlying health problems, puberty, stress, polycystic ovaries, pregnancy, and contraceptive methods, generally hormonal breakouts shows up around the jawline, cheeks and chin.
