Oily skin types are genetic (you are born with that skin type).  It is characterized as having large pores and excess oil. This skin type is more susceptible to experiencing breakouts (pimples, blackheads, whiteheads). Although someone may always have an oily skin type, as they age they will produce less oil.


There are a myriad of causes which perpetuate breakouts this includes medication, supplements, stress, environmental factors (heat, cold, pollution, allergens), hormone fluctuations (menopause or pregnancy), diet (high sugar and salt), makeup, dryness/dehydration, poor skin care routine, and use of irritating products or treatments.
