Too much of a good thing isn’t always a good thing. Take oil, for example. Your skin naturally produces it and needs it to stay supple and strong. But excess oil and pores become clogged, dead skin builds up and your complexion turns shiny. Of course, if you have oily skin you already know this and are ready to shop below for the oil-balancing skincare of your pore-free dreams.

Oily skin still needs oils

  • Skin glands produce sebum, a natural oil essential to skin’s health and texture, but overactive glands lead to more oily skin.

  • Not all oils are bad for oily skin. Those high in linoleic acid are lighter in texture and can help balance skin’s oil production.

  • Likewise, not all oils are oily-skin friendly. Ones high in oleic acid are typically richer and can be pore-clogging.
