Oily or Blemish-Prone Complexions

Though oily and blemish-prone skin is most common in teenagers, it can be found throughout life. If you have ever experienced excessive oil on your face, you know it can be very frustrating. In the morning, everything looks under control.

But by 3 o'clock, though, your cheeks are shinier than a diamond from Tiffany's. In fact, even as we age, a dry face can shift to oily skin. The amount of oil our skin produces is mainly based on hormones and environmental factors—women who live in humid climates naturally have too much oil.

Using the wrong products can lead to the over-production of oil. You can often get rid of the afternoon glow with powder, or try to blot it away with oil-absorbing pads. While these are good short-term solutions, more long-term solutions can help permanently alleviate oily skin.

Women with oily skin usually have larger pores than those with normal or dry skin. They also typically have a shiny complexion and are more prone to pimples, blackheads, and discoloration than women with other skin types.

Stress, adolescence, humidity, and heat can all contribute to oily skin. Oily skin is caused by an overproduction of oil or sebum. This substance is designed to moisturize skin naturally, but if the skin cells cannot hold the moisture or produce more than necessary, the skin takes on an oily, dull appearance.

Even if it does occur immediately, it may develop through the day, popping through makeup and other measures that women take to curb the look of oily skin. In addition, an oily skin type may have another underlying cause: dry skin. So if the body senses the skin is dry, it will produce more natural oil to moisturize it.

But if caustic acne medications or washes leach away this oil, the skin is not moisturized correctly and must produce more oil. This becomes a cycle until the skin has learned that it must produce more oil than it ever needs to keep it hydrated.

Hormones and the Skin

Oily skin is most common on the face, but it also manifests on the scalp and back, where acne may occur. When it appears on the scalp, women also face oily hair.

This skin type may occur at any age of life but is, of course, most common during adolescence and early adulthood; as the body is growing and changing and producing new and different hormones, which alter the body's natural chemistry, this may linger even after age twenty and continue for the rest of a woman's life, depending on her body and the climate in which she lives.

Oily skin is hard to address because it has an assortment of causes. For example, if the skin produces too much sebum or the cells cannot hold it, it is necessary to wash the face twice a day and replace the oil with clean, fresh hydrators.

In this case, the skin is too dry. Again, you can train your skin to recognize the appropriate amount of oil through cleansing and moisturizing.
