Oily skin is the most common among Brazilian women: in addition to having a greasy feeling throughout the day, it also has an irregular texture and very open pores, especially on the cheeks and nose. The biggest problem with this type of skin is acne – the famous blackheads and pimples – which form due to the accumulation of oil and impurities in the pores. If you suffer from these discomforts, your skin is probably oily!
Mixed skin: greasy feeling on forehead, chin and nose + blackheads and pimples
Do you even feel your skin greasy, but only in spots? You probably have mixed skin. This type of skin is characterized by excess oil in the so-called “T” zone – forehead, nose and chin, where most of the sebaceous glands are concentrated on the face – and dryness in other regions, such as cheeks and jaws. Large pores and acne are also common, especially in oily areas.
