Oily or Blemish-prone

Though oily skin and blemish-prone skin is most common in teenagers, it can be found throughout life. Ah, the joys of the afternoon glow. If you have ever experienced excessive oil on your face, you know it can be very frustrating. In the morning everything looks under control. Then, about 3 o'clock comes around. Your cheeks are shinier than a diamond from Tiffany's. Even as we age, a dry face can shift to oily skin. The amount of oil that our skin produces is based largely on hormones and environmental factors. Women who live in humid climates, who produce too much oil naturally. Using the wrong products can lead to over-production of oil. Many times you can get rid of the afternoon glow with powder or try to blot away with oil-absorbing pads. While these are good short-term solutions, there are more long-term solutions that can help to alleviate oily skin permanently. 

Women with oily skin usually have larger pores than a woman with normal or dry skin. They also usually 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; Technically, oily skin is caused by an overproduction of oil or sebum, in the skin. This substance is designed to moisturize skin naturally, but if the cells of the skin cannot hold the moisture, or if the skin simply produces more than is 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 another measure that women take to curb the look of oily skin. An oily skin type may have another underlying cause, which is dry skin. If the body senses that skin is dry, it will produce more natural oil to moisturize it. But if this oil is leeched away by caustic acne medications or washes, the skin is not properly moisturized and must produce more oil. This becomes a cycle until the skin has learned that it must produce more oil than it will ever need, just to keep the skin hydrated.
