If you have oily skin, you probably think it’s a curse.

Most people with this skin type have tried hundreds of different skin-care products – from harsh toners to stripping cleansers – to help get rid of their “slick” problem. But there’s something you should know about oily skin. It’s not a curse at all…

Oily skin is a blessing.

And if you’re one of the lucky ones with oily skin, there’s a good chance you’ll age more slowly than any other type of skin out there…. if you take care of it the right way.

You see, oily skin is characterized by larger pores and a higher sebum (oil) production by the sebaceous (oil) glands. And pores often get clogged and are more prone to comedones (blemishes and blackheads).
