Oiliness imbalance in aged skin
Oiliness of the skin is not so clearly related to age as other characteristics, such as hydration. Most people experience reduced oiliness as they grow older, accompanied by the body's greater problems in holding water in the skin. This is because an oily film helps to form a barrier against water loss, so if it is depleted the skin becomes too dry, with all the consequences that entails.
Less often, as people age, their skin actually becomes excessively greasy and a thick lipid film on the surface of the skin prevents it from breathing. The complexion then loses its vibrancy and takes on an unnatural shininess. What is more, this oily film is not able to hydrate the skin. Consequently, the complexion is often greasy, yet dehydrated.
Maintaining a suitable level of lipid components on the surface and in the topmost layers of the skin by regulating their formation is an essential part of skin care.
