  3. Oily Skin
Oily skin is characterized by a shiny or glossy appearance and large pores.  Oily skin tends to be thicker in structure and may be rough in texture.  This imbalanced skin type is caused from an overproduction of oil by the sebaceous glands.  Blackheads are usually common in this skin type, and clogged pores and acne can also occur.  Oily skin can become dehydrated as a result of clogged pores.  This happens when sebum can't reach the surface of the skin to lubricate it.  Oily, dehydrated skin should not be confused with dry skin.  Although oily skin can be frustrating to keep balanced, it does have a major benefit.  That is, oily skin takes much longer to show signs of the aging process.  Since oily skin is thicker, it usually has great elasticity and the constant lubrication of the oils keeps fine lines and wrinkles at bay.
