Oily Skin

‘Oily Skin’ is used to describe a skin type with heightened sebum production. Oily skin is prone to comedones (blackheads and whiteheads) and acne.
With mild acne, a significant number of comedones appear on the face and frequently on the neck, shoulders, back and chest too.
In moderate and severe cases, papules (small bumps with no visible white or black head) and pustules (medium sized bumps with a noticeable white or yellow dot at the centre) appear and the skin becomes red and inflamed.

Oily skin type has

  • enlarged and clearly visible pores
  • a glossy shine skin
  • blackheads
  • pimples
  • blemishes
  • thick complexion which mean blood vessels may not be visible

The amount of sebum produced by the sebaceous glands in skin controls the efficacy of the skin’s barrier function and, as a result, the condition of skin. The overproduction of sebum can lead to oily, acne-prone skin, while low sebum production causes dry skin.

The symptoms of oily skin and their severity vary between people. Genetics may play a role in how oily the skin becomes.

Hormone changes or high-stress levels may also increase the production of oily sebum by the body.

Oily skin that is linked to genetics can be difficult to prevent. Even oily skin caused by changes in hormones is difficult to control.

The best prevention for oily skin is for an individual to find a consistent skincare routine that works, and to stick to it.

When oily skin arises, it can be tempting to hide it with makeup. However, certain products, particularly oil-based products, could make symptoms worse or clog the pores. Water-based makeup may be a better option for some, while others find wearing no makeup works best for their skin.

Many people also say their diet is what keeps their skin from acting up. It may help to stay hydrated, avoid greasy foods and trans fats, and to eat a well-rounded diet full of whole foods.
