Why is my skin oily?

Ever wondered why you over produce oil on your skin? We have the answer for you.





Oily skin is the result of the overproduction of sebum from sebaceous glands. These glands are located under the skin's surface. Sebum is an oily substance made of fats. Sebum isn't all bad since it helps protect and moisturize your skin and keep your hair shiny and healthy.

Although oily skin can become overbearing, it can actually be a blessing in disguise. If you have struggled with trying to control the oil on your face, we suggest you give your skin a break from time to time.

Benefits of having oily skin:

  1. Better elasticity and extra vitamin E production are just a few benefits of having oily skin.

  2. Wrinkles appear later

  3. Make-up sits better on oily skin

  4. Your skin adjusts to seasonal changes easily

  5. Natural protection against environmental factors
