Oily skin is the bane of my existence—I mean, who has oilier skin than me? I have managed to keep it under control for years, and for some of you, I’m certain it needn’t be a battle. My secret? An oil-free skincare routine.
Oily skin is the bane of many a makeup lover’s existence. It can leave you with a greasy, dull complexion, making it hard to look your best. However, oily skin is also incredibly common, and there are many effective ways to control it. The trick is to find a skincare routine that works for you—whether you’re prone to shiny skin due to a skin condition or you just struggle with a naturally oily complexion.
What Causes Oily Skin?
Oily skin can strike anyone, no matter what age you are. Once oily, the problem is that you’re usually stuck with it for good. But just because your skin is oily doesn’t mean that you have to live with it.
Oily skin is a common condition, and just a few simple changes can treat your skin and reduce the appearance of excessive oil. Most skin types can produce excess oil, but people with oily skin tend to have more oil in their skin than other skin types. Some causes of oily skin include hormonal changes, genetics, and the weather.
