Characteristics Oily skin tends to have larger pores, and a shiny, thicker complexion. This skin type produces excess oil that can block pores and cause spots. Blackheads and pimples are a common problem with this skin type. If you still aren’t sure if you have oily skin, blot your face with a tissue and see if oil stays behind.
Recommended skincare Use products that are lightweight and easily absorbed into the skin to avoid looking greasy. Gel creams are great as they deliver hydration and regulate sebum. Cleansers and clay masks with gentle formulations are a good way to balance oily skin.
Tip! Try to find effective cleansers that do not contain alcohol and drying ingredients as this can cause dehydration and sensitivity in the long run. Oil based cleansers will remove oil without stripping the skin. Follow with balancing serums and moisturisers.
