My Skin Is Oily, But Why Is It Dry?

Our skin is a living organ. Over time, due to psychological and chemical factors ( climate changes, hot, cold, sun rays, environmental pollution, improper nutrition and consuming hormonal foods ), such negativities have not been taken into account for a long time against the changing reactions of the skin !

People who have skin problems have had questions such as what can I use on my skin, what can I apply? When we landed at Deteya, in recent years, a concept called skin psychology has been gained. Today, dynamic skin care programs have developed to protect the natural structure of our skin, if there are problems, to eliminate them.

In the past, the classic skin structures that we know as a general concept were defined as normal skin, combination skin, oily skin, dry skin.

In the current, changing time, we humans have been negatively affected by environmental pollution and chemicals. In particular, our skin was undoubtedly the most affected. The structure of our skin has been disrupted and different skin forms have been derived. In this direction, care cosmetics for skin types and forms have come into play.

Causes of current skin problems

In the ranking: there is a genetic factor, an internal factor, external factors.

As for the reason for the change of skin structures, our skin is experiencing problems from internal factors, as well as genetic factors.

Internal factors for example: hormonal problems, stress, malnutrition, medication use.

External factors for example: Climate change, heat, cold, environmental pollution, air conditioners in indoor environments. We can glaze over as the reasons for the change and deterioration of skin structures.

Current skin types and forms

Oily- dry- sensitive : Three skin types in one ( Seborrhea Sicca ) oily, sensitive skin.

Oily- slightly moist : Two skin types in one ( Seborrhea Oleosa ) very oily skin.

Normal skin : It is a well-groomed skin type with oil, moisture balanced.

The question we hear the most in current studies? Why is my skin oily, dry! and the questions continue, what cosmetic product can I use and apply treatments suitable for my skin?

The skin structure seen today is a deterioration of skin functions. The reason for the transformation from an oily skin structure to an extremely dry skin structure is prolonged sun baths, solarium, improper cosmetic use or acne treatments applied too deeply. It causes the skin to dry out, harden and become sensitive. Oily, dry and sensitive, three skin types in one, it takes the most difficult skin form.

Detailed skin analysis is very important for applying successful cosmetic care and intensive care for oily, dry and sensitive skin structure. The biolegic cosmetic products or cosmetic intensive care methods used may be good for one part of the skin structure while irritating to the other part. Therefore, the skin needs unique products and methods to be applied for oil, moisture and sensitivity.

Treatments that balance skin functions

In home care: Vitamin A, Ceramide, Mecadamia serum containing active ingredients, vitamin A, which is skin-friendly, has the ability to balance the oil, moisture and dryness of the skin.

Cleaning: Cleansing foam containing the active ingredients Alantoin, Penthenol, Glycerin provides deep cleansing by protecting the skin with moisture.

Aloevera is soothed by refreshing the skin with a Tonic containing Hyaluronicacit.

In professional intensive care

Biolegic warming and cooling mask: It has the ability to refresh and renew the skin by balancing skin functions

Enzyme peeling: Algae and Papaya extracts, special intensive care for comedones and spots by softening the hard layer on the skin.

Alge mask: Care for dry and sensitive skin that balances dryness and sensitivity of the skin with red, coffee-colored algae obtained from deep ocean.

Micro dermabrasion: The newest method for skin problems, a method that renews spots, scars, skin hardness, peels the skin minimally.

With a wish for days full of healthy beauty
