Oily Skin Types

Oily skin produces an excess amount of sebum that causes the skin to appear shiny or greasy, especially throughout the t-zone (forehead, nose, and chin). Characteristics of oily skin include enlarged, clogged pores and frequent acne breakouts.

Control oil production

Oily skin produces excess sebum, which can lead to clogged pores and acne breakouts. There are a number of ways to control oil production, including using oil-free cosmetics, washing your face twice a day, and using a toner to remove excess oil.


Exfoliating once or twice a week can help to remove dead skin cells and unclog pores. Use a gentle exfoliator that is designed for oily skin.


Contrary to popular belief, most of the time oily skin is caused by lack of hydration. If the skin is dehydrated, it will cause an excess of oil production. The key is using lightweight, non-comedogenic skincare products.

Face wash routine

Wash your face twice a day with a cleanser that’s not harsh on the skin. Using harsh soaps and detergents can strip away the natural oils from your skin, leaving it dry and irritated. Instead, use a gentle cleanser that is designed for oily skin.
