Most women with dark skin have combination to oily skin on their faces. Why is this, and how can you prevent it ?
The figures speak for themselves: several studies show that more than 65% of women with pigmented skin have combination to oily skin on their face. Dark and olive skin tends to produce more sebum because in temperate climates such as in Europe, skin must fight against dehydration. As a result, skin produces more sebum. This excess sebum production on the skin's surface creates shine on the face. Dark and olive skin have trouble adjusting to stress, pollution, hard water and especially to a lack of sunlight, extreme humidity and too much wind. Excessive sebum production is a way for skin to protect itself from outside aggression. Excess sebum may also be accompanied by acne and leave dark spots due to hyperpigmentation.
Eating fatty foods can also be a major cause of excessive sebum production. Reduce fatty foods from your diet, eat more fruits and vegetables and drink a lot of water to keep your dark or olive skin beautiful and well hydrated !Add to favourites
