Did you know that 1 in 3 women identify as having oily skin?
Thanks to our friends at La Roche Posay , we just got the scoop on two great new beauty products about to become available and wanted to share them with you!
Shine and enlarged pores share a single physiological cause: hyperseborrhea. Sebum is a natural component of skin’s hydro-lipidic film. In moderate amounts, it fulfils a key protective role by forming part of the epidermal barrier function. In cases of hyperseborrhea, sebocytes secrete abnormally large quantities of sebum into the sebaceous gland canal. Engorged with this sebum, the sebaceous glands excrete this sebum onto skin’s surface, causing pores to enlarge due to
this sebum flow. On the surface, skin is shiny and oily, pores are enlarged and open, making them more visible.
La Roche-Posay offers a solution with Effaclar M – a new daily moisturizer that helps to control oily skin. Oily skin stems from a condition called Hyperseborhea –pores are enlarged, allowing for strong sebum flow. Effaclar M reduces pore size, in turn reducing, sebum flow, leaving skin with a clean shine-free, matte finish. Effaclar M and the entire Effaclar family are vital in providing clear skin for acne sufferers.
