Why Is My Skin So Oily?

Why Is My Skin So Oily?

If you suffer from oily skin, you may be wondering what the best moisturizer is for oily skin. When trying to fine turn your skincare regimen, it is important to understand what may be contributing to your oily skin. 

Excess face oil doesn’t just happen to those with genetically oily skin – anyone can experience an oily face in the form of breakthrough shine and excess oil throughout the day.

In order to understand how to develop the right skincare regimen, it's important to ask yourself the following questions:

  1. Is my oily skin genetic? 
  2. Am I under a lot of stress?
  3. Are you currently skincare products the right fit for your exact skin type?
  4. Are you taking medications that could be interfering with your skin?
  5. Are you using your products correctly (i.e. are you over treating/using)?
  6. Are there big changes in season where you live?
  7. Do you frequently tan?
  8. Are you female?

If your answer to any of the questions above was yes, your skin can experience breakthrough oil and excess shine. Stress, medications, hormones, incorrect product, and changes in seasons can deplete skin of needed moisture, causing it to produce a surge of oil to compensate for what’s lacking. Overuse of products and tanning can strip and injure skin, causing it to go into “protect” mode – and produce excess oil.
