Overactive sebaceous glands are the culprit of oily skin. This condition isn’t just for teens: oiliness can be triggered by genetics and hormone fluctuations, making even adults susceptible to excess oiliness and shine.

When it comes to oily skin, it’s all about genetics! But, when it comes to controlling excess oiliness and trying to maintain a matte finish, it all comes down to your daily skincare regimen and whether you have the right products for your skin.

Why is exfoliation important?

If you suffer from oily skin, your body’s natural process of exfoliation can be slowed, leaving your skin acting as a glue that holds dead skin cells to the surface.

Exfoliation is helpful to those with oily skin as it helps rid dulling skin cells and prevents clogged pores which lead to breakouts. It works to smooth, improve skin tone and enhance the skin’s receptiveness of oil-controlling ingredients.
