Oily - Dehydrated
Oily/Dehydrated Skin Guide (33 KB)Oily skin or Seborrhoea is the name given to excessively oily skin but the scientific name of the bacteria that cause acne vulgaris is proprionibacterium acnes. Seborrhoea is due to the overactive sebaceous gland and results in overproduction of sebum, it can be identified by its shiny, thick and firm appearance. An oily appearance can look neglected with enlarged pores and blemishes. It is important to use a product to treat oily skin that is antiseptic and controls bacteria. It is a mistake to use harsh skin care products that contain alcohol or strong astringents on oily skin as this will stimulate the production of more sebum, making the condition worse. The skin care routine Juniper recommends consists of certified organic geranium and lavender for its antibacterial properties and its regulation of sebum production. The Purifying range also contains Australian Wattle seed for its pore refining and anti-inflammatory properties. Skin with advanced or severe acne should be treated very gently and never exfoliated until the condition is under control.
