Commonly confused with acne, and the least common of all three skin types, an oily skin will have far more visible pores extending out from the t-zone to the chin, inner cheeks and take a larger space on the center of the forehead. In addition, oily skin will generally appear slick at the end of the day and first thing in the morning and if imbalanced, also throughout the course of the day regardless of what is applied. When an oily skin is imbalanced congestion, breakouts and acne begin to appear as the slick sebum produced in the pores contains a bacterium that thrives and, as the skin’s barrier is made up of a combination of this sebum, contributes to acne causing bacteria that infiltrates the skin’s impaired barrier.
An oily skin may have the visible signs of larger and more extended pores but does not display the slickness of the excess sebum which can be an indication of a regulated oil flow or even a post oily skin meaning, that as you have aged your true oily skin doesn’t produce the amount of sebum it used to due to hormonal changes and regulation.
