Pigmentation For Oily Skin

Dark skin, pale skin, light skin, oily skin, dry skin, combination skin!! You might probably be wondering when hearing about all of these skin types!

Most of us have heard about "pigmentation."

The word "pigmentation" is derived from the Latin word "pinge", which means "to colour or paint." Our skin colour depends on a pigment called "melanin." The higher the production of melanin, the darker the skin colour, and the lower the melanin production, the lighter the skin colour. 

Most of us encounter these three types of skin: oily skin, dry skin, and combination skin, so, as per skin type, pigmentation affects skin differently. In this article, we will discuss "Pigmentation for Oily Skin". 

What exactly does "oily skin" mean?

Oily skin is the result of oil glands (sebaceous glands) in the skin that produce an excess amount of oil. This skin type requires a bit more attention than other skin types. It's just that it is a bit sensitive too. Acne, pimples, dullness, darkness, stickiness, greasy conditions, make oily skin pigmentation

"Pigmentation for oily skin." How can it be treated? What are the things to be avoided?

Several factors cause skin pigmentation, but the most common factors are exposure to sunlight and inflammation, pollution, sunburns, etc. Pigmentation for oily skin may be treated by following some natural remedies, or if there is a hyperpigmentation problem, we may consult a doctor and go for medications as well. Even though natural remedies are easily affordable and have no side effects, the drawback is that they take time.

Things To Avoid To Get An Oil-Free Look And An Even Tone:

Oily skin is a matter of excess oil production in the skin. As I said, this skin type is quite similar to sensitive skin, as this skin is easily affected by acne, pimples, dullness, darkness, etc. Hence, even a little mistake can be harmful. So, remember the following things if you want to get rid of oily skin.

  1. Dry to avoid taking too much spicy, oily, fried or frozen food. It stimulates oil production, which ultimately leads to excess oil production.
  2. Avoid using soaps and facewashes that have a creamy and sticky consistency or have harsh chemical content.
  3. Avoid using rough cloths to dry your skin; it also stimulates oil production.

Things To Follow To Get An Oily Free Look:

  1. Keep washing your face regularly with a face wash that contains salicylic acid. It contains beta hydroxy acid, which helps in reducing excess oil production and also keeps your skin from getting dry, making it best suited for oily skin.
  2. Use those skincare products that contain retinoids along with the other ingredients. Retinoids possess Vitamin A, which helps in brightening the skin and also helps in reducing the shine and greasiness of oily skin.
  3. Use a toner that contains witch hazel ingredients. It has skin-soothing and lightening properties. It also helps in unclogging the pores.
  4. Pat the face dry with a smooth towel or napkin.
  5. Use facial masks.
  6. Apply a moisturiser that contains aloe vera extract.
  7. Glycolic acid is called a powerhouse for oily skin. As it solves all the oily skin issues such as acne, pimples and breakouts, It reduces excess oil production and also brightens the skin.

Ingredients Needed To Depigment Oily Skin-

There are several factors needed for depigmentation. Some of the most important are as follows:

  1. Mandelic Acid- 

It is made from almonds, which help brighten the skin and pigmentation issues.

  1. Vitamin C-

It is also called Ascorbic acid, which is the most essential factor in treating pigmented skin issues. It helps in neutralising the bad effects of UV rays on the skin and protects our skin from getting pigmented.

  1. Liquorice Root Extract-

It contains an ingredient called Glabridin, which reduces the production of melanin and depigments the skin.

Suganda skincare's 5% Niacinamide serum. This serum contains niacinamide ingredients, which reduce blemishes and also heal acne. Most importantly, it is best suited for oily skin. It also contains some ginger extracts, which fade the pigmentation and improve skin elasticity. Suganda Skincare's Advanced Pigmentation Serum contains the Alpha-arbutin factor, which fades pigmentation and improves skin texture as well. Use anti-pigmentation night cream, which consists of aloe vera extract, to help reduce the pigmentation on the face. It also fades the patches of pigmentation.

You can also use an antioxidant serum, which consists of Vitamin C, an essential nutrient for every skin type. Vitamin C maintains hydration in the skin and keeps our skin glowy, softening it.

Bonus Suggestion

If you want to avoid the pigmentation of oily skin, cover your face with a scarf or stole when you are going outside, and don't forget to apply sunscreen when your skin is exposed to sunlight. One more tip is to keep cleaning your face with water or mild face wash at least 2-3 times a day so that bacteria won't affect your skin.
