OILY SKIN: Causes and Treatments

Have you ever looked at your cellphone screen after a phone call and noticed there was oil from your face on the screen? Does your face always look shiny when looking at pictures of yourself? Everyone has natural oils within their skin, but some secret more oil than others.

Oily skin is caused by excess skin oil produced within the pores, and the amount of oil fluctuates with hormone fluctuation. For example, an adolescent going through puberty is experiencing a high hormone fluctuation and thus will be more likely to excrete more oil from their pores. It all comes down to one’s genetic makeup and how his or her body reacts to life events.

Here are some tips and tricks to treating oily skin:

    • Cleanse: Use a gentle face cleanser twice a day
    • Moisturize: Moisturize your skin every day
    • Oil-free products: Use oil-free face products especially when it comes to makeup
