4 basic things to know if you have oily skin

dermatologist - oily skin

Oily skin is known for producing endless sebum. It’s also prone to easily attracting dirt and dust to the face. It’s characterized by a continuous shine and large pores that tend to be frustrating! It’s that skin type that secretes oil endlessly especially around the t-zone.

For oily skin, it’s great to have a routine to help control oil production without stripping the skin of its moisture – contrary to thinking leaving this skin type unmoisturized, it should be but with light moisturizers. 

There are basic routines for dealing with this skin type that produces great results.

Never skip washing/cleansing your face in the morning and at night. Wash your face twice a day with cleansers that contain salicylic acid (you don’t want to overwash the skin at the same time!) and other ingredients that help oily skin so that it penetrates into the pores to remove dead skin, dirts etc that clog the pores 


Exfoliating the skin is important because it clears the pores. Make sure to use a scrub that has small particles because harsh particles strip the skin of its natural oils.

You may think that it’s not important because you have oily skin but you need to otherwise more oil will be produced because your skin will be dried out. Use sebum or gels to moisturize and not creamy moisturizers.


Make sure you use products that are oil-free or mattifying to help with shine.
