Balance Oily Skin
Oily skin happens when the sebaceous glands in the skin make too much sebum. Sebum is the waxy, oily substance that protects and hydrates the skin.
Symptoms of oily skin include:
- shiny or greasy appearance
- very large or obvious pores especially around the nose and cheeks
- frequent pimples
- clogged pores and blackheads
People with oily skin may have trouble finding makeup to suit their skin, as the makeup can mix with the sebum, giving it a different consistency.
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.
