What Causes Oily Skin?

  • Hormonal Changes
  • Hormonal imbalances during puberty or pregnancy can result in oily skin.

  • Climate
  • Where you live and the time of the year can contribute to oily skin. If you live in a humid or hot environment, it is likely to result in oily skin.

  • Genetics
  • Look around you. Do your immediate family members have oily skin? If the answer is yes, you most likely have it too!

  • Large Pores
  • Large Pores tend to produce more sebum.

  • Exfoliating Too Much/Using Harsh Soaps
  • Sometimes, what you think is contributing to glowing skin may actually be the cause of diminishing skin health. Exfoliating too much or too hard can stimulate sebum production. Using harsh chemicals, not suitable for your skin type can also contribute to oily skin.

    Tips For Oily Skin:

    A. Moisturise Regularly

    Moisturising regularly will keep your skin hydrated and prevent it from overproducing sebum.

    B. Stay Hydrated

    Drink enough water to keep your skin moist. This will prevent your skin from producing excess oil.

    C. Wash Your Face Twice A Day

    Wash your face two times a day to remove dirt and bacteria that may clog your pores. Don’t over-wash. Over-washing can remove necessary oils from your skin. This can result in sensitive skin and make it more oil-prone.
