Learning about different skin types has become one of my top interests. Not just because it helps me to find a good skincare routine for myself, but it also serves as a way to help my friends work toward having the best skin, too. For my friends with oily skin, finding the right set of products to reduce the issue is imperative. However, even with changing their products, I've reminded them to pay attention to the unexpected signs you're making your oily skin worse because every product for oily skin won't work for every person with oily skin.
On time, I arrived at friend's house as she was finishing her makeup. Within one hour of us leaving, her face had become so oily and it looked as if her makeup was about to slide right off. Since she'd never really taken that as a sign of her oily skin getting worse, she continued to blame it on the foundation being cheap and didn't do the right research to fix her problem. It was only after she started using primer and changed over to an oil-free foundation that her makeup looked less shiny after application.
Though it may be easy to blame certain products for your skin not being up to the standards you'd like, sometimes all it takes is being a little more aware of what your skin needs before reaching for any old product. So, if you're one that deals with oily skin and aren't sure if it's taking a turn for the worse, these seven signs might be able to help you out.
