Oily skin has a shiny appearance with clearly visible, enlarged pores. It can be prone to spots.
Oily skin is caused by excessive sebum production, which in combination with bacteria, can lead to acne. Comedogenic cosmetics as well as hormonal imbalances and changes can exacerbate the condition.
On the other hand, incorrect use of drying products/medication can result in ‘over stripping’ of the sebum and lead to dehydration.
Dehydration can also be caused by an unhealthy diet low in essential fatty acids, insufficient water intake, long hot baths or showers, central heating and air conditioning, extreme weather conditions and harsh use of face cloths.
Quite often sebum production slows down in later life. It is vital to ensure that our skin care regimen is adjusted accordingly to avoid over drying of the skin.
Oily skin usually does not show signs of premature ageing.
