Oily Skin Treatment

What Causes Oily Skin?

Oily skin is exactly that. An oily face is the result of an abundance of oil on your skin, especially in your “T-zone,” which is the area across your forehead and down the bridge of your nose, including your chin. Simply put, your sebaceous glands (the glands that produce the oil your skin needs) are hyperactive, giving your skin too much of what normally is a good thing. Because of all that extra oil, your skin can feel greasy, look shiny, and be more susceptible to breakouts or acne.

The triggers of oily skin and an oily face vary, from genetics and diet to hormones and cosmetics. The result is overactive, oil-producing glands.

Oily Face Wellness Tip

Be gentle when you wash your face.  Harsh scrubbing can stimulate more oil production.

Identifying Oily Skin

Oily skin can appear shiny and heavily textured. When you have it, you’ll notice the excessive amount of shine and the feeling of oil on your face by midday.

In addition to this, a greasy feeling, enlarged pores, breakouts, and other blemishes often accompany oily skin. Treatment for oily skin is available, like Sebasorb.

Symptoms of Oily Skin

Oily skin happens when your body produces more natural oil than needed. Symptoms of oily skin appear mainly along the “T-zone” area of your face and include:

  • Your skin appears shiny
  • Your skin feels greasy, often by midday
  • Your skin looking more textured than usual

The extra oil that your body produces cannot only feel and appear uncomfortable but can also lead to breakouts or acne.

Product Tip

Oily skin still needs to be moisturized, so don’t skip that step. Make sure you use a moisturizer that’s natural and not oil-based.

How to get Rid Of Oliy Skin


Wash your face up to twice daily with a gentle face cleanser to ensure that the excess oil you’re producing does not clog your pores and cause damage to your skin.


Use non-comedogenic makeup, like Liquimat, to maintain healthy skin. Be sure to wash it off every day to let your skin breathe.


Overwashing your skin can dry you out.  Use an oil-free moisturizer so you can hydrate your skin without adding extra oils.
