How is oily skin?

Oily Skin

Oily skin is characterized by having an intense shine, producing excess sebum, having dilated and enlarged pores. And it still has a great tendency for acne breakout.

It is extremely common for those with this type of skin to suffer from the rebound effect, as the excessive production of sebum ends up being a nuisance and the person tries to get rid of it by using products or by excessive cleaning.

However, this excess production of sebum from the sebaceous glands aims to protect the skin, but due to an imbalance in the skin, this production is uncontrolled. However, this imbalance is intensified with excessive cleansing and lack of hydration of the skin.
