Why is My Skin Oily? Here's Why

Posted on January 28 2020

Do you have problems with Oily Skin (skin shine) or makeup collapse?

After eating oily, greasy foods such as burgers and fried chicken, have you ever noticed that your skin was sticky, lacked sleep, made your skin tingling, or made acne-like pimples?

You may be focusing on cosmetics such as lotions and serums as measures against oily skin. Of course, it's important to use the right cosmetics for your skin.

However, oily skin may have a great influence on your rhythm and diet.

Do you know about vitamins B2 and B6?

Vitamin B2 and B6 are attracting attention as whitening nutrients.

Vitamin B2 is a nutrient required to turn dietary fat into an energy source in the body. The food including vitamin B2 can be such as milk, bread, almonds, asparagus, etc. Vitamin B6 is also responsible for digesting lipids, but it is also a very well-functioning nutrient when synthesizing our body and other proteins that make up our body. The food including vitamin B6 can be pork, fish, vegetables, eggs, soybeans, etc. You also can learn about soybean from our past article.

Therefore, skin vitamins like vitamins B2 and B6 can prevent oily skin and dry skin and keep the skin clean.


Avoid high-fat foods that cause vitamin deficiency

・ Eat foods rich in vitamins B2 and B6

These two points can improve your oily skin.

Other ways you can improve for your Oily Skin

When making up, remove excess sebum and then apply a foundation to prevent sebum from floating.

It is important to shorten the length of time you are doing makeup. People who come home late for work etc. are likely to spend more time doing makeup. Makeup stains can be oxidized, and pores can easily clog.

Finally, you should make sure to remove makeup stains.

Not only sebum secreted from the body but also oils in makeup products can have a negative effect on the skin. Please make sure to cleanse and remove makeup before you go to bed.

Recommended foundations

This time, I would like to introduce two new items!

"Estée Lauder's Double Wear"

It is a foundation that can be recommended even in the season when sebum is increased, especially in summer.

Estée Lauder's Double Wear is hardly oily because it focuses on the resistance to collapse. Therefore, it fits the skin and gives a smooth feeling, making it harder to feel oily Skin.

Second, “MAQuillAGE Dramatic Powdery UV"

Although it is a powder foundation, it has a high degree of adhesion and is a foundation that does not easily deteriorate. The reason is, it is a foundation made from MAQuillAGE's own fluffy mousse.

In addition, the newly developed fine powder emphasizes both "transparency" and "cover of pores" at the same time, making the skin look beautiful from any angle.
