Do you feel you have Oily Skin? When the sebaceous glands in the skin make too much sebum, then oily skin develops which can be felt clearly on the skin. Sebum is an oily, wax-like substance that hydrates the skin, but also helps to protect it. Too much of this sebum can then cause the pores to block. Those blocked pores can then lead to large open pores, blackheads, pimples, acne. Oily skin will show in complexion as shiny, greasy or thick in texture, if it is oily.
At Skin Revision, we are used to treating oily skin and working with our clients to manage it over the long term. The correct in-clinic treatment and correct skincare products, that work only for your skin, will allow you to be free of oily skin, blackheads, acne, etc in the years ahead.

Do you feel you have Sensitive Skin?

There may be a misconception when it comes to sensitive skin. It is not necessarily due to you having a reaction to a household product etc. Your skin is likely to be sensitive and reactionary if:

  • The skin suffers reactions such as small or large bumps
  • Becomes very dry and worn. In doing so the skin fails to protect its nerve endings very well.
  • Your skin frequently or infrequently, reddens, blushes, or flushes.

Causes of Sensitivity in the Skin

  • Eczema or Rosacea.
  • Exposure to natural elements such as the cold winds, warm winds or sunshine and heat.

If you are unsure whether you have sensitive skin or not, then speak to us at the Beaconsfield skin clinic. We can determine whether you have sensitive skin or in fact whether your skin is oily, dry or compromised.

Do you feel you suffer from Dry Skin?

Dry skin is characterised by a lack of moisture and natural oils in the epidermis and can cause scaling, itching and fine lines. Dryness is usually related to a skin barrier issue that allows excess moisture to escape. This issue is referred to as increased transepidermal water loss (TEWL).

What are the causes of Dry Skin?

  • Colder temperatures and the lowering of humidity levels can dehydrate the skin
  • Hormone levels will change over time and as one ages.  This leads to a decrease in oily sebum production.
  • Genetics means that some people produce less sebum, which means less oil in the skin.
  • Hot showers create hot steam which aggravates the skin causing it to dry out.
  • Washing your face too often will dry out the skin by ripping it off its natural moisture levels.
  • Wrong soap usage means that the chemicals within the soap will react with the skin and dry it out.
  • Lack of protection from the sun’s UV rays
Can I use makeup to cover my oily skin?

Not really because some makeup products are oil-based which could make things worse for you. Oily makeup will clog the pores which will lead to blackheads, spots, and larger open pores. You may wish to try makeup that is water-based if you feel you really do need to wear makeup.

Is Aloe Vera good for Oily skin?

Aloe Vera is good for some people suffering from Oily skin. It can leave the skin moist and protected. An article in 2004 from “Trusted Source” found that Aloe Veera was actually a good moisturiser to use for oily skin. However, it would be best to still get advice from the Skin Revision Clinic, as the product may contain denatured alcohol, which may dry out and irritate the skin.

What is Oily skin?

We have sebaceous glands all over our body. These glands produce an oily substance called serum that helps moisturize and protect your skin. Some people produce too much serum. The effect of this is a shiny, greasy appearance to the skin. 

Why can Oily skin be a problem?

The problem with oily skin is that it can block pores and even cause blackheads, spots or acne breakouts.
