What is oily skin?

Oily skin has a naturally shiny appearance if not looked after, it can also tend to feel ‘greasy’ even an hour or so after you have cleansed your face or showered. In addition, oily skin is also more prone to decongestion and clogged pores which can lead to breakouts and acne.


What causes oily skin?

Oily skin results from the overproduction of sebum in sebaceous glands located under the skin’s surface. Sebum itself is made of fats, giving it an oily appearance, but it is crucial in protecting, moisturising and maintaining the health of your skin. In other words, sebum itself is good for the skin – it is only an excessive amount that leads to the typical signs and symptoms of oily skin. While you can’t prevent oily skin, there are a few factors that might contribute to its development, or exacerbate your oily skin symptoms: Climate and seasons – hot and humid climates, you are more likely to have trouble with oily skin in summer than in winter. Enlarged pores – can result from ageing, fluctuations in weight and as a consequence of regular breakouts. Skincare routine – using the wrong skincare products for oily skin, over exfoliation in your skincare routine or avoiding moisturising entirely are all risky for those with oily skin – as they either strip too much oil from the skin or dry your skin out.
