Skin which looks oily and shiny isn’t a look which any individual actively wants to achieve, although oiliness can make an appearance and take on a life of its own unless efforts are made to avoid it.
One skin care mistake which a lot of people still make- which can make skin look very oily very quickly- is using a moisturiser which is far too heavy and which just sits on the skin.
Even in this day and age, with so many superb skin care products around and with so much great skin care advice so readily available, some do still hold the belief that the only way in which their skin will receive the hydration it needs is via the use of a really thick oil-based moisturiser.
These moisturisers certainly aren’t suitable for all skin types though, and in some circumstances they can do more harm than good.
Proper hydration doesn’t just come from oil-based moisturisers, as there are lots of fantastic oil- free moisturisers out there which can hydrate just as well- Dermalogica Active Moist is a great example of this.
By choosing and using a good moisturiser, avoiding the oily look can actually be very easy.
