What Causes Oily Skin & How To Manage It?: Explained

Do you ever have the feeling that no matter what you do, your face is always shiny and greasy? Does it feel that no matter how many times you wash your face or apply skincare products, the oil continues reappearing? If this is the case, you are not alone. Oily skin is a widespread issue that affects people of all ages and skin types. In this blog, we'll look at the most common reasons of oily skin and what you can do to treat it.

What is Oily Skin?

Oily skin is a condition where the skin produces too much sebum. Sebum is a naturally occurring substance that helps to keep your skin moisturized and healthy. However, when you have oily skin, this excess sebum can cause your pores to become clogged with dirt and oil as well as lead to breakouts on your face.

The main cause of oily skin is genetics; if both parents had oily complexions then there's a good chance that their child will inherit the same traits. Other factors include hormones (like puberty), diet or medication use (such as birth control pills).

How to find out if You Have Oily Skin?

There are a few methods you can take to determine if you have oily skin:

  1. Wash your face gently with lukewarm water and a light cleanser. Use a clean cloth to pat your skin dry.

  2. Wait an hour: Do not apply any skincare or cosmetic products for an hour.

  3. Take a look at your skin: Examine your skin closely. You may have oily skin if your skin seems slick or greasy, especially in the T-zone (forehead, nose, and chin).

  4. Clean fingertips should be used to gently touch your skin. Another symptom that you have oily skin is if it feels oily or greasy to the touch.

Please note that oily skin can be influenced by a variety of variables, including genetics, hormone changes, and skincare products. If you're unsure about your skin type or have any concerns, it's always a good idea to seek personalised guidance from a skincare specialist or dermatologist. They can assist you in determining your skin type and recommending the most appropriate skincare programme for you.

How to Manage Oily Skin?

  1. Cleansing: Cleansing is one of the most important steps in managing oily skin. You should use a gentle cleanser that removes dirt and makeup without stripping the skin's natural oils.


  2. Exfoliation: Regular exfoliation can help remove dead cells from your face, which can clog pores and cause breakouts if left behind. It also helps to reduce pore size over time by keeping them clear of debris that could otherwise block them up.


  3. Moisturizing: While it may seem counterintuitive to add moisture to oily skin, moisturizers actually work better at keeping oil production under control than they do on dry or normal complexions (which tend to produce less sebum). Look for a lightweight lotion with hyaluronic acid in it--this ingredient will help attract water into your cells so they stay hydrated longer throughout the day!


  4. Diet changes: Eating foods high in omega 3 fatty acids like salmon will help keep inflammation down while reducing redness around blemishes caused by acne breakouts!


Benefits of Oily Skin?

Oily skin has its benefits. It's true that oily skin can look greasy and cause acne, but it also comes with some major perks:

  • Fewer wrinkles.
    Oily skin tends to be younger-looking than dry or combination skin because it doesn't wrinkle as easily.

  • Less dryness.
    Oily skin doesn't get as dry as other types of complexions do, so you're less likely to need heavy moisturizers or creams on a daily basis (which may actually make your face worse).

  • Easier makeup application--and removal.
    Oily complexions are easier to cover up with foundation than drier ones because there's less chance of it sliding off during the day thanks to all that natural oil production happening underneath your makeup layer(s). And when you want to take off those layers at night? No problem! Just use a good cleanser--it'll come right off without much effort at all!

Solutions for Oily Skin

Topical solutions: If you have oily skin, it's important to use a moisturizer that contains an oil-free formula. This will help keep your skin from getting too greasy and prevent breakouts.

Medications: There are many topical medications available for treating acne, including retinoids (like tretinoin), benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid creams or gels. You can also talk with your doctor about taking oral antibiotics if you have severe acne or cystic lesions on your face.

Home Remedies: If you prefer natural remedies over pharmaceuticals, try some of these tips:

Drink plenty of water every day (about eight glasses). This will help flush toxins out of the body through urination so they don't build up on the surface of your skin as much as they would otherwise do so if there weren't enough fluids being consumed daily by someone who had oily skin conditions like yours does now!

Eat more fruits and vegetables each day instead; these foods contain antioxidants which help fight free radicals produced by UV rays from sunlight exposure.

Tips to Keep Oily Skin in Check

  • Wash your face twice a day.

  • Use oil-free products. 

  • Don't touch your face, especially with dirty hands or makeup brushes! Not only does this cause breakouts, but it also spreads bacteria around the skin and makes oily skin worse.

  • Use blotting papers after applying makeup (or at any point throughout the day). These will soak up excess oils and keep you looking fresh even if you're sweating through an intense workout session or crying over a breakup--or both at once!

  • Try clay masks on occasion; they help draw out impurities from deep within pores and reduce inflammation caused by acne breakouts. They also make an excellent spot treatment when applied directly onto problem areas before bedtime!

Precautions to Take When Dealing with Oily Skin

  • Avoid over-washing. Over-washing can strip your skin of its natural oils, which can make it even more oily in the long run.
  • Avoid scrubbing. Scrubbing your face too hard will irritate it and cause redness, which we all know is not a good look for anyone!
  • Don't skip moisturizing! Moisturizing is important for everyone--even those with oily skin--because it keeps the skin hydrated and prevents breakouts caused by dryness. If you have very oily skin, though, try using a lightweight oil-free moisturizer that won't clog pores or cause breakouts on top of a regular daily moisturizer (and maybe even under makeup).
  • Avoid excessive sun exposure if possible; wear sunscreen every day if necessary! Exposure to UV rays increases oil production in our bodies so keep this in mind when planning any outdoor activities such as hiking or biking through sunny areas like deserts where there's no shade available (or just plan ahead by bringing along some SPF 30+).
