The thing about oily skin though, is there’s no definite reason on your face for that extra oil.
If you have oily skin, it means you have overactive sebaceous glands in your skin that contain more oil than you need.
It’s triggered by climate change, hormones, biology, diet, stress, or just the use of the wrong skin care product a lot of times.
Not to neglect the times that the skin is dehydrated, and to compensate for oil loss, it starts to overproduce excess oil.
It makes enlarged pores prone to blackheads, breakouts, and acne. Well, just because you’ve got oily skin, that doesn’t mean that you can’t do anything.
