A shiny film of oil covers the face. The sebaceous glands are running at full speed and an overproduction of skin fat / sebum clogs the pores. Oily skin is a nutrientoden for bacteria that can inflame the sebaceous glands and cause pimples and blackheads, also known as comedones. Your skin shows few lines and wrinkles. The uppermost layer of skin often has poor blood circulation and can therefore appear pale and has a rather large-pored appearance. If it is also particularly moist, you have oily, moist skin. On the other hand, if your skin tends to be dry and has flakes of fat that come off easily, it is called greasy-dry skin. It is a bit more delicate and tends to stretch after washing.
In order to keep the pores free and prevent bacteria from multiplying, consistent cleansing is essential for oily skin. Washing your face thoroughly in the morning and evening with a gentle cleanser is the basis. Then use a toner with slightly disinfecting properties. To remove dead skin cells, exfoliate once or twice a week. The so-called double cleansing is also suitable for oily skin types. First remove make-up and dirt with a cleansing oil and then use a foam or a cleansing gel to remove dirt from the skin down to the pores. Afterwards, the skin looks forward to a water-based serum and light moisturizing creams or facial oils. Some products are explicitly labeled "non-comedogenic", which means that these products do not contain any substances that clog the pores.
