Why does our skin produce sebum? Benefits and harms
Yes, I have oily skin! My skin has always tended to look shiny and with a lot of acne or blackheads, but until now I had never stopped to think about what could be the reason. (And I had never taken care of my skin the way I should have either...).
However, that's over now! I've decided to take care of my skin and I'm trying out some of BOXSR's products. But before I start taking care of my face, do I really know what sebum is and what it does for my skin? Oily skin and what is the function of sebum in our dermis?
Is the sebum in our skin that bad?
The sebum is the grease that produced by the sebaceous glands glands of our skin. This oil serves to cover, protect, lubricate and soften the epidermis, i.e. the outer layer of our skin.i.e. the outer layer of our skin.
However, as hard as it may be for you to believe, our skin does not produce the sebum for its own sake, but through it we protect ourselves from external aggressions such as pollutionpollution sun or the coldamong many others.
In addition, the layer of sebum that accumulates on our skin also has another great function: to moisturize our skin y provide it with the antioxidants necessary to combat the free radicals y keep our face our face.
Therefore, we can affirm that sebum in itself is not bad for our skin, quite the contrary! However, an excess of it yes can lead to harmful harmful consequences for our face, such as acne or oily skin. (I already knew that something was wrong with my skin...)
I guess everything in life is about finding a balance, don't you think? Now that I know what the oily skinis, why it appears and what functions our skin's sebum has, I no longer have any excuses to start taking care of my face with the BOXSR Box Good Face. Box Good Face by BOXSR.
