Oily Skin

Oily Skin

All skin requires some oil in order to stay moisturized. Sebaceous glands produce sebum that lubricates skin to prevent it from drying out. When these glands produce excess sebum, pores get clogged and the face appears shiny, indicating oily skin. At Phyto-C Skin Care by Phytoceuticals, Inc., we research, develop, and manufacture a range of safe, natural, and effective skin care products that are well suited for oily skin.

Understanding Oily Skin

Common symptoms of oily skin include:

  • Very large or obvious pores on the skin
  • A greasy or shiny appearance
  • Occasional or persistent pimples
  • Skin that looks rough and thick
  • Blackheads and clogged pores

Oily skin is often hereditary, which means there is nothing you can do on a fundamental level to change your skin type. That said, there are plenty of measures you can take to manage oily skin.

Heightened hormone levels may also be the cause of oily skin. Pregnancy or puberty can lead to oily skin, making individuals prone to developing pimples and blackheads. Other factors that may contribute to development of oily skin include eating a diet rich in sugar and refined carbs, over-washing one’s face using harsh products, medications like oral contraceptives, and environmental factors like hot weather and humidity.

The causes behind oily skin can be difficult to understand and managing oily skin can be even more challenging. Due to production of excess sebum, people with oily skin tend to experience skin conditions like acne that can be painful and cumbersome to treat. If you have oily skin, it is best to use gentle cleansers, toners, and exfoliators to avoid stripping skin of its natural oils.

Popular Products for Oily Skin

Individuals with oily skin should use non-comedogenic, oil-free products to avoid clogged pores. Salicylic acid is a powerful ingredient for treating existing breakouts and preventing new ones, keeping your face smooth and acne-free.

Common Oily Skin FAQs

Dairy products tend to clog pores and may make exacerbate oily skin, leading to acne.
