What are the characteristics of oily skin?

A man was in his front yard mowing grass when his beautiful, blond, female neighbor came out of the house and went straight to the mailbox.

She opened it, looked inside, slammed it shut, and stormed back into her house.

A little later she came out of her house again, went to the mailbox, again opened it, and slammed it shut again. Angrily, back into the house she went.

As the man was getting ready to edge the lawn, here she came again. She marched to the mailbox, opened it and then slammed it closed harder than ever.

Puzzled by her actions, the man asked her, “Is something wrong?

To which she replied, “There certainly is! My stupid computer keeps telling me I’ve got mail!”


Large pores are a characteristic of oily skin.

Jokes are funny – bad skin is not!

You are searching the internet for solutions to your oily skin, right? To get to the answers, you must first know the problems. What are the characteristics of oily skin?

Oily skin is characterized by a visible shine (usually by mid-day), large visible pores (especially around the nose), and frequent acne. None of these things are pleasant to deal with.

As you search for products for oily skin, you have probably come across many that will just dry out your face. Using alcohols to dry the oil is just a temporary fix – and it doesn’t last long. Without the right oil control skin products, your skin will likely end up dry and flaky while still breaking out. The products do not treat the underlying problem, nor do they help to shrink those large pores. If you have oily skin and you want to get it under control, there are many products available for you which care simple to use and will make your skin care routine quick and easy. Check out this list of skin care products by Skin Rx made just for you:

Glycolic Facial Lotion – Oily skin does need to be moisturized – believe it or not! This lightweight moisturizer is oil free and works double-duty to fight blackheads and large pores.

Glycolic Oily Kit – With a cleanser, eye cream, and lotion, this oily skin care kit works in combination to cleanse and properly moisturize your skin, minimize blackheads & pores, and fight fine lines!

Acne 3 Step Control System – Three products (cleanser, purifying tonic, acne and oil control gel) work together to clear up acne caused by oily skin and to control the excess oil and sebum on your face.

Why do I have oily skin?

Oily skin is a common problem which leads to other skin challenges including blemishes, large pores, blackheads, and of course, the dreaded greasy shine. Oily skin can affect people of all ages, but in general, oily skin is worse in teenage years and tends to dry out as we age.

For those who suffer with oily skin and the embarrassing side effects, you may wonder why your skin is this way. Oily skin is caused by several different factors including:

  • Hormone levels (during pregnancy, menopause, teenage years, birth control pills)
  • Certain cosmetics
  • Genes (sorry, oily skin can be hereditary!)
  • Diet
  • Humidity in the air

Some things you can control, like your diet, but other factors, like your genes, you can not control. What you can do to control oily skin, however, is use the right products. Below are some of the recommended products by the estheticians at Skin Rx Clinic:

Glycolic Oily Kit: Contains a cleanser, an eye cream, and a lotion which work together to shrink pores, clear away blackheads, and cleanse away excess oil.

Acne 3-Step Control System: With a patented 3 Step system made of an Acne Cleansing Gel, an Acne Purifying Tonic, and an Acne and Oil Control Gel, you are just three steps away from clear, clean skin.

Home Remedies For Oily Skin?

Banana Mask - A home remedy for oily skin?

It seems that a natural approach to skin care appeals to lots of people, as we have found that there are many, many different recipes for home remedies for oily skin posted all over the internet. Some are crazier than others, but we thought it would be fun and interesting to post some of these “remedies” here for our readers:

Lemon – Apparently, you can take the juice of a lemon and just rub it all over your face with a cotton ball. Then just rinse with warm water and pat your face dry.

Banana – Some say you can mash up a banana until it is a paste with no lumps, rub it on your face like a mask, leave it on for 15 minutes and then rinse.

Yogurt – Take some yogurt and massage it all over your face then wipe away with a towel. Remove any remaining yogurt with distilled water. (Pick your favorite flavor, the recipe didn’t call for a specific type of yogurt!)

The problem with home remedies is that they are rarely effective and while they are all natural, the benefits of using them does not really compare to products which have been formulated specifically for oily skin by experts in the skin care industry. If you really want a remedy for your oily skin, check out the following products recommended by Skin Rx:

Glycolic Oily Skin Kit – A combination of a cleanser, eye cream, and lotion, the Glycolic Oily Skin Kit works to remove excess oil, clear blackheads, revitalize the skin, and shrink pores.

Acne 3-Step Control System – Since acne is a big problem for many who deal with oily skin, Skin Rx offers this wonderful 3-Step system which fights acne, reduces excess oil, and clears up acne with anti-bacterial ingredients.

Limu Facial Cleanser – For those of you who are looking for a natural remedy for your oily skin, try a facial cleanser like the Limu Facial Cleanser by Skin Rx. This product contains all natural ingredients derived from seaweed and aloe which cleans the skin and stabilizes moisture content without the use of oils or harsh ingredients.
