    What is Oily Skin?

    Many types of skin can be challenging, but most people recognize oily skin as one of the most difficult skin types to maintain and manage. Young people are especially prone to the ravages of excessive oil, but this problem can persist as you age, creating a frustrating situation. Luckily, with proper care and management, you can reduce the issues associated with your oily skin type.


    Of all the skin types, oily skin is one of the easiest to recognize. People with this skin type are prone to breakouts, even when they are well past the teenage years. With this type of skin, you commonly can expect to see pimples along the T-zone, which includes your forehead, nose and chin. The texture of your skin is probably coarse and thicker than other people experience. It is also common to notice a greasy sheen to your skin and to have enlarged pores. Unlike many other people, however, the normal signs of aging might pass you by; the excessive lubrication in your skin means that it probably is less likely to wrinkle.

    People can get oily skin for several reasons. Genetics, Age, Environment, and Lifestyle all play a role. Younger people tend to have oilier skin, and lifestyle factors such and stress or hormonal changes play a huge role!

    WHAT To Do about OILY SKIN?

    The most basic tenet to control oily skin is to wash regularly, this can reduce the amount of oil on the skin. The cleanser you use is important, because your body will want to overcompensate and produce more oil in response! Do not use cleansers that are oil or alcohol based, as those can irritate your skin.

    It is important to moisturize, even for those with oily skin. However, do not choose thick creams or moisturizers. Especially if you are washing your skin regularly, you will want to replace the moisture lost from the skin.
