OILY SKIN: All you need to know

About


Oily skin occurs when the sebaceous glands in the skin produce excess sebum.
Approximately 85% of people between the ages of 12 and 24 years experience at least minor oily skin.


- Sometimes it can take a month or two until you see any major improvements
- If youre still dealing with excess oil after this time, you may want to see your dermatologist
- The ultimate test of effectiveness is a personal experience.
- It is essential to test any product or method on a small patch of skin
Oily skin is because of the overproduction of sebum from sebaceous glands. Sebum isn't all bad as it helps protect and moisturize your skin, and keeps your hair shiny and healthy.
