Glowing skin: possible causes

The skin that shines is often caused by hyperseborrhea, that is, an overproduction of sebum. It can be accompanied by skin imperfections such as enlarged pores, blackheads and acne pimples.

Having shine on the face is synonymous with oily skin. Sebum is a fatty liquid composed of water and lipids that helps form the skin barrier. Its role is to protect the skin from external aggressions such as pollution, UV rays…

The problem of excess sebum occurs when the sebaceous glands work too much. The causes of excess sebum secretions are often:

  • A hormonal imbalance (seborrheic skin is common at puberty or during certain hormonal conditions such as PCOS (PolyKystic Ovarian Syndrome) that can cause adult acne);
  • Poor nutrition (too fatty, too sweet)
  • An unsuitable lifestyle (not enough sport to oxygenate cells for example and promote cell regeneration of skin tissues);
  • Genetic factors (you have oily skin)
  • Inappropriate cosmetics (comedogenic, too thick, which clogs the pores…);
  • An inadequate skincare routine (incomplete facial cleansing, makeup residues, or sleeping without removing makeup…).

Glowing skin is not inevitable. The goal is to regulate sebum production. To achieve this, you need to know the cause of your hyperseborrhea. A dermatologist can help you, as well as a doctor or gynecologist.

The routine to avoid having shiny skin

Facial treatments can help regulate sebum secretion and thus calm the activity of the sebaceous glands. If your oily skin is caused by hormonal disruption, for example, cosmetic care alone will be insufficient. You need to treat the cause of oily skin.

Here is a facial care routine that you can adopt to reduce the areas of shine on your face and mattify the complexion. This routine is for oily skin, combination skin, and acne-prone skin.

1. Makeup Removal

Always take the time to remove makeup, especially before sleeping. Sleep is the right time for the epidermis to regenerate and recharge.

If you have glowing skin, you can use the Purifying Micellar Solution suitable for oily skin with imperfections. It consists of blueberry floral water with soothing, anti-inflammatory, toning and demanding properties. You also find Scutellaire baicalensis root extract which is a powerful antioxidant that helps eliminate free radicals.

2. Cleaning

Complete the makeup removal with a face wash for oily skin. The Purifying Gel removes residues from makeup and helps you have clean and purified skin. It also helps to remove dead skin and excess sebum that can clog skin pores and cause shine.

It consists of glycolic acid, a mild exfoliant, tea tree essential oil (tea tree), purifying, antibacterial and antifungal, and burdock root extract, depurative.


3. Anti-brillance care

Before applying your anti-brillance treatments, you can spray hydrolate on your face or a toner. Then apply the Regulating Gel that moisturizes the skin in depth while helping to regulate sebum production. It also helps to mattify the complexion.

This gel consists of:

  • Sebbomine, an effective mattifying agent to treat shine;
  • Salicylic acid, scrubbing, soothing and purifying;
  • Zinc, seboregulator;
  • Lavender essential oil real, healing, toning and analgesic.

4. Hydration

ALWAYS finish your beauty routine with a moisturiser. You can apply a moisturizing serum or moisturizer, depending on your preferences. The hydration of the dermis is essential to maintain the hydrolipidic film and keep a supple and healthy skin.

5. Makeup

In the morning, after your facial routine, if you wear makeup, we advise you to apply a mattifying foundation to unify the skin and reduce shine. This is what offers the Mattifying Radiance Base that smoothes, unifies and corrects the complexion.

This base blurs dilated pores, reduces acne pimples and scars, smoothes fine lines and wrinkles and gives the complexion a matte powdery appearance that absorbs sebum. It therefore reduces shine for a skin that shines less or more at all. It also increases makeup hold so you don’t have to powder yourself every hour.
