What you should know about greasy skin
Cause and effect: how spots occur
These symptoms are signs of greasy skin
- Shiny skin: sebum is visible as a greasy film on the skin.
- Enlarged skin pores: if too much sebum is produced by the skin, the walls of the pores expand permanently.
- Sallow complexion: greasy skin does not have good circulation, so the complexion often looks sallow.
- Spots in the T-zone: the skin on the forehead, nose and chin is particularly affected by impurities.

Methods of combating spots
Tips for blemish-free skin: how to stay one step ahead of spots!
- Avoiding irritating factors: Avoid heat, abrasions and aggressive cleansing, as greasy skin reacts very sensitively to these.
- Bind excess grease: matt powders and oil-free make-up absorb excess sebum on the face. If you notice that your face is very shiny, you can also grab a paper tissue and gently dab off the sebum.
- Skin scrubs and masks for spots: You can remove dead skin cells and dirt from your skin 2-3 times a week using a mild scrub and then tone and moisturise with a mask.
- Visiting a beauty salon: Have your skin cleansed regularly by your professional beauty therapist. This will have a lasting improvement on the appearance of your skin.
- Changing your nutrition and habits: Having an unhealthy lifestyle, such as smoking or suffering from stress, can have a negative impact on the appearance of your skin. Ensure that you eat healthily and drink plenty of fluids.

Natural home remedies
A quick and simple cleansing steam bath can also combat spots and blackheads. Put a few drops of camomile essence in hot water, place a towel over your head and hold your face over the steam for approximately 5 minutes. The hot steam will open the pores. Afterwards, the skin will be able to absorb a cleansing mask really well.
