Oily Skin
Oily skin is a condition that usually develops during puberty, because the production of oil from the sebaceous glands beneath the skin surface is linked to hormonal changes. Other common times for the onset of oily skin are menopause, and not surprisingly, pregnancy. During these times of hormonal change, the sebaceous glands can become much more active. Although oily skin can be a nuisance, causing acne outbreaks and blackheads, there is a silver lining with oily skin: aging and the wrinkles that come from aging are mostly due to the lack of oil production. So if you have oily skin, you may just find that your skin ages more slowly!

Oily skin can have several different causes, some environmental, some physiological. Genetic factors are definitely important, as well as diet and your hormonal state. Climate also plays a role. If you live in a hot, humid area, you are more likely to experience oily skin than if you live in a desert climate. And cosmetics are a major factor as well. Many of the most expensive face and eye creams are rife with oil-based ingredients, which ironically can contribute to oily, blemished skin.

The combination of Dead Sea minerals can provide a solution for oily skin that is quite remarkable. If you have oily skin, teen skin, or adult acne, try using Awakening FACE& NECK Dead Sea mineral cream, which is light, non-greasy, non-clogging, and leaves your face feeling like silk.
