How can you tell if you have Oily Skin? Some typical signs include a shiny T-zone (from your forehead down to your nose and chin) hours after cleansing, frequent breakouts, enlarged pores and consistent presence of blackheads.
The key to manage oily skin is to prevent dehydration of the skin, make sure to cleanse your pores and to avoid using products that can further irritate your skin. While it is not possible to reduce the size of the pores, it is possible to minimize the pores visually by exfoliating dead skin cells and impurities that can potentially cause clogged pores.
Don't forget the sunscreen, which is the most important step to protect your skin during the day time. This is even more crucial if you are on tretinoin, a commonly prescribed remedy to help with blemish issues related to oily skin.
