HOMOEOPATHY FOR OILY SKIN
Our bodies naturally produce oil called sebum to keep our skin smooth and soft, but when sebum production is excessive, it can lead to acne flare-ups and oiliness, which are some of the main causes of acne. during puberty and other life events, fluctuating hormones can result in increased androgen levels, which is thought to be one of the main causes of oily skin. androgens are male hormones present in both males and females.
The more androgens present, the more sebum is funneled through the pores, sitting on the skin’s surface and giving it an oily sheen; when this extra oil gets trapped in the pore and combines with bacteria on the skin’s surface and inside the pore to form pimples, blackheads, and other blemishes.
In most acne patients, the response to hormonal changes is influenced by genes and hormones. Life events like puberty or pregnancy can cause hormone fluctuations, and genetics and hereditary factors can affect how your skin responds to these fluctuations. Genetics also play a significant role in oily skin.
