How to Care for Oily Skin
Oily skin is a skin type that is characterized by an overproduction of sebum - our skin’s natural oil. If you’re oily, it’s most likely to be hereditary as it’s a skin type which means you’re predisposed to it. However, hormones can also come into play. Many of us will experience oiliness during hormonal fluctuations in our menstrual cycle or in stressful times. Whilst the increased presence of oil can mean that breakouts are more likely, not everyone with oily skin experiences acne. Sebum is an incredible substance and our skin needs it to function properly so when you’re looking to target oiliness, make sure you’re managing levels, not completely stripping it away.
