What Oil Does to Your Face | How men break out with acne

Annelise Hillmann • Aug 09, 2022

Skin Oil, or “Sebum” (a much grosser, technical term) is totally natural way for your skin to coat, moisturize, and protect itself. At a scientific level, it’s made up of fatty acids, sugars, waxes, and chemicals that work in tandem to form a barrier that’s primary function is to stop moisture loss in skin and hair.

Unfortunately, in doing so it often traps a mixture of dead skin cells, sweat, and everything else that is in the dust around you, some of which can sneak into pores and cause issues.

It should surprise no one who went through teenage-hood that the sebaceous glands that create body oil become more active in that age range, with the most concentrated areas like the face, scalp, upper neck, and chest surging stronger than other places.

And that, of course, results in acne, oily skin, and more. 

The good news? Advances in dermatological health have spurred new ways of tackling Oily Skin and can help keep your sebum (yep, this far in it’s still a gross word) to a minimum. 

Even better news? One of the best cures has been around for (literally ages) — activated charcoal. Pressed into a thin sheet, a single "Paper" can absorb oil from most of your face and leave you feeling completely oil free.

It takes just seconds, but in as short as a few days you'll notice your acne clearing up. Daily use means your pores stay cleaner, longer, and acne has a harder time forming.
