There’s a dif­fer­ence between dewy, hy­drated skin and a shiny com­plex­ion. What to do when your oil glands are in over­drive?

Cosmopolitan (Philippines) - - Fun, Fearless Beauty -

if you have oily or com­bi­na­tion skin,

you know how dif­fi­cult it can be to find a sun­screen, mois­tur­izer, and foundation that will keep you grease-free. Add the fact that oily skin is more prone to im­per­fec­tions, blem­ishes and clogged pores, and your daily rou­tine gets quite com­pli­cated. Also, makeup won’t stay where you put it! Cosmopolitan

WHY so oily?

Oil is pro­duced when testos­terone stim­u­lates se­bum glands to make more (or less) oil as skin needs it. If you’re nat­u­rally oily, there’s lit­tle you can do about it. Another rea­son for shine is, iron­i­cally, de­hy­dra­tion. In an ef­fort to bal­ance and cor­rect it­self, skin pro­duces more se­bum, send­ing oil glands into over­drive. may 2016
