Oily skin – frequent breakouts and enlarged pores
Oily skin is the result of sebaceous glands working a bit too hard and producing too much sebum. While sebum is necessary for protection and hydration of your skin, too much of it can clog your pores and cause acne. Along that unsightly shine people with oily skin have frequent breakouts and enlarged pores.
Oily skin can occur as a result of genetics, hormone imbalance or unhealthy lifestyle. While you can’t fight genetics, there are steps you can take to make sure you’re not encouraging your glands: avoid sugar, fried and processed food, touching your face and stress.
Wash your face once a day
Wash your face daily, but not more than once a day, since over washing can remove too much of the protective oils and stimulate your sebaceous glands to produce even more sebum. The same goes for overusing harsh alcohol-based toners and other anti-oily skin care products, which work too well and send your glands into overdrive.
Always fresh, never oily skin
Skin care of oily skin can be a nightmare. You want to feed it with a rich face cream, but it clogs up your pores. Then you try a light gel or lotion instead, but now parts of your face feel like sandpaper and others are still shining like a Christmas ornament.
