Why is washing oily skin so important? Because it’s where everything starts, excess sebum is the first problem when it comes to oily & acne-prone skin. There’s no use trying to have healthy skin without blemishes or applying products that treat pimples, blackheads or too much sebum if the skin hasn’t been properly cleaned. It won’t work! Oily skin secretes too much sebum, which blocks pores. The result is shiny skin and dilated pores, with blackheads. These comedones can turn into spots if bacteria grow. Only rigorous daily hygiene will break the vicious cycle.

Morning and night, the skin gets dirty naturally with sweat, continuously secreted sebum, dead skin, bacteria, make-up, sunscreen, dust and pollution particles that stick on top… Cleansing twice a day is the only way to remove all of these impurities that accumulate1. Otherwise, the skin suffocates, pores get blocked2 and pimples develop. Even in the morning, a simple rinse with floral water isn’t enough to eliminate impurities that are deposited overnight.

Cleansing needs to remove all residue that has accumulated on the skin without stripping it. The idea is to keep the hydrolipidic film3 that protects the skin and maintain physiological pH levels. Why? Because a pH that is too basic is the perfect host for bacteria and acne! If pimples are a problem, cleaning morning and night is even more important.

 

  • Never use any alcohol, antiseptics or soap that can destroy skin microflora and dry the skin out while unnecessarily raising its pH.
  • Specific cleanser for oily skin and acne such as Sebium Foaming Gel deep cleans oily skin without drying. It perfectly cleanses the skin, respects the hydrolipidic film that protects the epidermis, preserves the physiological pH and mattifies for about four hours.
  • Alternatively, specific micellar water for acne such as Sebium H2O has the advantage of being both effective and rapid to use. A quick wipe with a cotton pad is generally enough, and there is no need to rinse. All impurities are removed from the skin, whatever their origin. Micellar solutions formulated for acne-prone skin also respect the hydrolipidic film that naturally protects skin and its pH.

The skin is an ecosystem whose balance can be upset by either internal or environmental factors. For combination or oily skin, sebum’s equilibrium needs to be restored. The skin itself inspired BIODERMA to develop Sébium Foaming Gel, a purifying gentle cleanser that removes impurities & controls shine.

Sébium Foaming Gel lastingly takes care of combination and oily skin to create more balanced skin that is never overtreated, and whose microflora are respected.

Objective: Healthy Skin

Adapted to women and men, adults and teens, Sébium Foaming Gel has both a cleansing and purifying action. It helps prevent blemishes and helps the skin to lastingly regulate its sebum secretion. The skin becomes more resistant within its ecosystem.
