How You Will Know That Your Skin Is Oily?

Different skin types need to be treated differently. That’s why before using oily skin homemade moisturizer, the first step is to know whether your skin is in fact a oily type. The most common symptoms of oily skin are:

(i) Shiny, oily complexion, especially on the T-zone (forehead, bridge of the nose, and chin)

(ii) Large skin pores

(iii) Blackheads, acne breakouts, or blemishes

(iv) Press a napkin over your forehead. If prominent oil marks appear on it, you probably have oily skin.

Does Oily Skin Need Moisturizer?

Are you wondering: “I have oily skin, so why would I need a face moisturizer?” Beauty experts claim that even if you have oily skin, you still need moisturizer daily. But the moisturizer should not leave your skin feeling greasy and looking shiny.

Moisturizers work to improve your skin’s hydration (think water-content of the skin, not oil-content). Moisturizing products aren’t just for, well, hydrating only.  They also form a protective barrier on the skin’s surface and give the skin a soft, smooth feel.

You should use a moisturizer which can exterminate acne-causing bacteria, removes excess oil from your skin surface and maintains the right moisture balance.
