Oily Skin

Oily skin is typically characterized by enlarged pores and an oily shine. The skin structure is often coarse and discolored due to a tendency for scarring. Overactive sebaceous glands result in blemishes such as blackheads, pimples and pustules. Internal factors which can influence blemished skin include hormonal imbalance, genetic predispositions and stress. External factors such as body hygiene and nutrition also play an important role. The proper care of oily skin strives to reduce the sebaceous layer and refine the complexion.
