Have you noticed your skin becoming oilier than usual over the summer? That’s because heat increases sebum production.
Sebum is the oil secreted by the glands in the skin. It is a process which accelerates in warm weather.
However, excessive sebum production can cause a host of skin problems which spoil the skin’s appearance:
- Acne – an oil-related problem
- Rosacea – redness and flushing of the skin
- Pigmentation – discoloration
- Ageing – lines, wrinkles, deteriorating complexion and general sagginess of the skin
