While oily skin is more prone to blemishes and breakouts, the good news is that this skin type tends to look younger longer, showing fewer lines and
wrinkles over time.
If you have oily skin it means that your sebaceous glands (tiny oil production glands beneath the surface of the skin) produce excess sebum (oil).
It gives your face a shiny, greasy appearance and contributes to the development of acne.
Signs Of Oily Skin
• Shiny, greasy appearance to the skin.
• Large pores on the face.
• Spots or acne.
Oily skin tends to be slick and shiny all over, especially on the cheeks, jaw line and the T-zone.
Pores tend to be enlarged and often visibly clogged.
Oily skin texture may also be rough, uneven and bumpy.
There are a number of reasons why people experience oily skin at times, most commonly in women links can be made to changes in hormonal levels e.g. during pregnancy, menopause or
when stopping a birth control pill.
Diet, genetic heritage, humidity, heat and, of course, the skin care range you use are other factors that can
result in oily skin.
