Having oily skin is good and bad at the same time because one people with oily skin will not get wrinkles like people with dry to normal skin but this skin type gets greasy and attracts dirt and pollution easily which ends up clogging the pores. This ends up making the skin break out which is hard to control in the hot and humid weather. Oily skin people also think they don’t need to apply moisturizer which is completely wrong. Their sebum gland produces more oil because the skin needs moisture so if you apply a good moisturizer it will stop greasing up the skin but it is hard to find a good moisturizer that won’t irritate the skin and won’t oil up the skin even more.
