Most people are under the assumption that we need to treat oily skin by stripping away at the skin with harsh cleansers
Find what oily skin really needs...
Your skin needs a healthy balanced microbiome. Not more aggressive cleaning and less moisturiser. Formulated especially for oily skin, Dermalogica Active Clay Cleanser delivers a powerful prebiotic that nourishes the skin's beneficial bacteria to support a healthy microbiome and moisture barrier. All whilst delivering 30% more cleansing power - leaving skin refined, revitalised and deeply purified to give you your healthiest skin possible.
Let's start with what is the microbiome
Your microbiome is a group of trillions of bacteria that live on our skin. Just like how our gut bacteria plays an important role in our health, our skin bacteria works on the same principal.
The function of the Microbiome is to protect the skin from the harmful elements of everyday life. Just as excessive bacteria is harmful to the skin and can cause skin issues not enough of the good bacteria can be as harmful to the skin.
The solution to helping the skin find the right balance comes with the use of pre, pro and post biotics are essential to keep the skin healthy and functioning efficiently.
But what else?
Other factors that contribute to large looking pores are clogged pores, which is due to excess dirt and build-up of dead skin.
Age is another factor. As we get older our skin loses its firmness and elasticity causing it to sag, leaving our pores looking larger due to loss of structure.
Lastly, the sun. Damage from the sun causes free radicals in our skin to break down collagen and elastin. As a result, the skin may again sag and cause your pores to appear larger.
