Farewell, Oily skin!
There are two sides in every coin. The same goes for oily skin. It has its good and its bad side, its pros and cons. In its pros, the extra sebum of the oily skin, works like a natural lubricant. Think of an engine. It needs lubricant to stay healthy and last longer without getting old. In its cons we find sebum once again. Τhe elevated oil secretion makes this skin type prone to enlarged pores that become clogged with oil and the buildup of dead skin cells in the epidermis (the outermost layer of our skin). As a result skin looks dull and in some circumstances you experience blemishes which are the after-effects of breakouts. How can we keep the pros and banish the cons once and for all? With the right use of the best products made for oily skin and some clever tricks which you have to include in your beauty routine.
