An oily skin type is characterized as skin that is consistently oily or greasy throughout the day. Within an hour after cleansing, the skin may have a shiny appearance. Oily skin types naturally produce more sebum responsible for the sheen. Individuals with oily skin type are prone to acne breakouts, dull appearing thick skin, with medium to large sized pores.
Those with oily skin types should cleanse their skin twice a day, moisturize lightly and exfoliate on a weekly basis to control oil production and prevent blockage of pores.
