Excessive Oil or Shine

When the sebaceous glands in a person’s skin produce too much oil, it can result in a shiny or oily appearance. Many people believe incorrectly that oily skin is simply caused by poor diet and insufficient face-washing. However, there are several factors that affect the oil production in a person’s skin. These factors include:

  • Age
  • Pore size
  • Geographic location
  • Genetics
  • Improper skincare
  • Reducing Oily Skin at Home

Oily skin can be difficult to manage, but there are a few ways to reduce the amount of oil or shine that shows up on your skin. Try one or more of the following steps to decrease the oiliness of your skin at home.

  • Wash your face every day
  • Exfoliate your skin regularly
  • Don’t forget to moisturize (the right moisturizer does not cause oily skin)
  • Avoid touching your face throughout the day
  • Reduce your sugar intake (though this step is not proven, studies suggest that greasy, sugary foods contribute to oil production in the skin)
