What characterises oily skin?

Oily skin is linked to an excess of sebum production that gives the skin a shiny appearance, in particular on the forehead, the sides of the nostrils and the chin. The pores of the skin are often dilated and blemishes may appear, particularly on teenagers, young adults or people with hormonal imbalances. The good news is that oily skin is thicker, well-hydrated and protected against external aggressors, drying and stress. It is less prone to wrinking and the signs of aging.
