Oily skin is greasy and shiny, especially on the T-zone – the nose, chin and forehead. This skin type is also prone to breakouts because of enlarged pores that can trap excess sebum, possibly leading to blackheads and breakouts.
One of the biggest beauty sins (which we’re all probably guilty of) is going to sleep at night with make-up on. In a previous DESTINY article we explained that failing to cleanse your face properly before going to bed can cause your skin to flare up. Pores blocked by a build-up of dirt, oil and make-up can result in blemishing, pimples, blackheads or acne.
Make sure you commit to a proper cleansing routine at night and keep a stash of cleansing facial wipes on your bedside table for those nights when you’re feeling tired or lazy.
