Oily skin looks coarse because of enlarged pores and also has an overall dull appearance. Due to the overproduction of oil, the skin has a greasy and shiny look. This oily layer often causes the skin to become blocked and the pores clogged and oftentimes, people with oily skin also have blackheads, pimples and other blemishes.

There are a number of reasons for oily skin such as genetics, hormones, diet, cosmetics, and stress. Recognizing and understanding the cause for your oily skin will help you identity possible solutions. Wash your face not more than twice a day with a gentle cleanser and no matter how tempting it is, refrain from squeezing or popping your pimples as this can cause scarring. Lastly, always chose noncomedogenic cosmetics and skincare products because they won’t clog pores.

There are many products made especially for oily skin so invest in a good one. It is also advisable to consult your NOVU doctor to correct the skincare issues you have.
