Away with T zone redness redness... ... N A T U R A L L Y !
Sebo (sebum) – the oily secretions from the sebaceous glands. Rei – continuous flow. When the skin is oily during adolescence it can develop, with age, into sensitive combination skin. Sebum coated dead cells adhere to each other, locking in moisture as they accumulate on typical areas such as the scalp and facial T-zone. This creates an optimal "shelter" for microbial flora (especially Malassezia or Pityrosporum ovale) often resulting in redness, itchy flaking and general discomfort. What causes seborrheic dermatitis is still not fully understood, however it is clear that there is a genetic factor involved. Additional factors that play a role in its occurrence include environmental (seasonal) transition, personal stress and inappropriate skin care, all of which can further aggravate the condition.
Is there a rescue?! Even though no total cure is known until today, a certain preventive care regimen may be recommended to control this condition.
What to avoid? • Avoid using occlusive formulations including rich night creams, silicone based makeup, water resistant facial sunscreens. • Avoid over-heating or exposing your face to hot water in the shower. • Avoid surface abrasion with grainy scrubs or peels. • Avoid over-drying of your skin (using detergent based cleansers or drying clay masks).
How to care? • Keep your skin clean using a gentle facial cleanser with a very mild degreasing effect. • Keep your skin smooth and free from dead cells by using an extra gentle de-scaling peel. • Keep your skin's moisture level well balanced, and use effective soothing gels to hydrate and control skin redness. • Controlled exposure to UV light has a favorable effect on this skin condition. Sufficient UV protection should be achieved with mild and non oily sunscreens.
