Symptoms: Oily skin is generally characterized with a high production of sebum, which translates as a natural dewy-ness. There is often a possibility of some tendency toward spots, but this isn’t the case for all. Often oily skin will begin to look greasy shortly after washing, and usually after makeup application.
Care: Remember to treat skin gently. You may feel a need to scrub skin harshly, or use strong formulas, but it is better to use gentle products with natural ingredients formulated to bring balance to the skin.
