Often the causes of excessive activity of the sebaceous glands are diseases: metabolic disorders, vegetative-vascular dystonia, kidney diseases, hormonal problems, beriberi. In this case, the increased secretion of the sebaceous glands, which is only a symptom of a serious illness, will normalize when you improve your health. Often, oily skin is a consequence of malnutrition. Try to exclude pickled, sharp, salty, smoked and fried dishes from your diet, replacing them with vegetables, fruits, boiled meat and fish.
Oily skin needs to be cleaned regularly to open pores and prevent the development of inflammatory processes in them. To do this, you can use scrub based on fruit acids and gels for washing, designed specifically for skin with high secretion of sebaceous glands. Also help to reduce the greasiness of the skin lotions, tonics and masks. Hold the face over the pot with boiled potatoes for about 10 minutes to allow your pores to expand and then apply a cleansing mask. This way you will achieve greater effect from this cosmetic.
To narrow the pores and reduce the production of fat, you can use a decoction of field horsetail. Take one tablespoon of dried and chopped horsetail, pour a glass of water and simmer for 20 minutes. The resulting broth cool and strain. Wet cotton wool in the broth and put it on the dilated pores for 15-20 minutes twice a day. After washing, it is recommended to rinse your face with calendula infusion, which is prepared based on one teaspoon of dried plant for a glass of boiling water. Calendula has antiseptic properties and prevents the onset of inflammatory processes.
To normalize the metabolism and reduce the secretion of the sebaceous glands, it is recommended to take vitaminized brewer`s yeast, which can be purchased at the pharmacy. You can also use such a folk remedy as a decoction from the root of burdock. Two tablespoons of chopped root pour two cups of boiling water and boil over low heat for 20 minutes. Insist the broth during the night, and in the morning strain it and divide the four parts that you need to drink per day in between meals.
