How does the Oily Skin Serum work to moisturise your skin?

Having an oily skin can be a real ordeal. If you don't use the right skin care products, this temperamental skin can overreact and without realizing it, you'll enter the vicious circle of sebum overproduction. Not very glamorous, is it? So how do you calm down this skin type without rekindling the appearance of this unsightly oily film? In this guide, we tell you all about oily skin and the benefits of serums for oily skin !

What is oily skin?

The oily skin is a skin type that naturally produces excess sebum. With this type of skin, shine appears very quickly during the day and becomes more intense especially in the T-zone (forehead, nose and chin). The result: the complexion is blurred and the skin is never really clear...

This overproduction of sebum can be due to internal and external factors. The internal factors correspond to hormonal disturbances acting on the sebaceous glands, which produce sebum. External factors, on the other hand, are more easily controllable and correspond to external aggressions such as high heat, UV rays, pollution or the use of a skin care product that is too irritating for the skin. Yes, when our skin feels attacked, it protects itself by producing an oily film.

As you can see, oily skin has several minor problems. The excess of sebum will not only hinder the harmonious renewal of the epidermis but, above all, it will tend to obstruct the pores, which are often dilated in oily skin. This type of skin is therefore sujettes to imperfections because the skin is as if suffocated. And as if that were not enough, the excess of sebum is also responsible for a bad holding of the make-up on the skin...

But we reassure you, oily skin also has its advantages. First of all, you should know that oily skin ages much better. As we said, the oily film protects the epidermis and therefore makes it less sensitive to irritations and external aggressions. It is also important to remember that this type of skin can be treated and even rather well with the right products.

How can an oily skin serum help regulate your skin?

In this guide we have decided to focus on serums for oily skin because these small bottles are the most capable of treating skin problems in depth. However, it should never be forgotten that the effectiveness of a product depends on the whole beauty routine that surrounds it and the lifestyle that we have on a daily basis.

What is a serum? But above all, what is a serum for oily skin? 

A serum is a formula that is highly concentrated in active ingredients and which has the particularity of penetrating the deepest layers of the epidermis. It is therefore the most suitable treatment for the most stubborn skin problems. Just a few drops of serum before moisturising cream is enough to wake up the most tired skin and give the dullest skin an immediate glow.


The oily skin serums or moisturizing serums for oily skin will play the role of regulator for the epidermis. First of all, they will give back to the skin what it fundamentally needs, a hydration boost. Indeed, very often and against all your expectations, an oily skin can be dehydrated. Dehydration can also be a cause of overproduction of sebum as the skin seeks to protect itself. A dehydrated oily skin hydrating serum will therefore provide a shot of hydration, ideal to start treating any problem.

Regulate and care

Secondly, it's not about filling your cells with water, but about regulating your sebum protection. The oily skin serum must therefore contain sebum-regulating ingredients to limit overproduction and allow your skin to breathe.

Finally, after moisturizing and regulating your skin, the serum for oily skin may also contain active ingredients to treat other minor concerns, such as blemishes or redness.
