Oily skin happens for a lot of reasons. It can be due to your diet, skin care routine as well as the products you use.
Your skin can even break out from too much sun protection or by not using a sunblock for acne prone skin.
One of the most common causes of acne, however, is stress.
And if you’ve ever seen big zits appear on your skin just before a final interview or date, you know it’s true.
When you are under stress, a handful of chemical reactions happen inside your body. One of those reactions involve the hormone cortisol.
It’s a stress hormone that can directly make your skin produce more oil.
In addition to those chemical reactions, stress can also affect your sleep. And when you get less sleep, your body gets denied the chance to fully recover and repair itself.
Oxidative stress happens and you develop more problems on top of your oily skin. You’ll get acne, dull looking skin, fine lines and wrinkles.
Despite the tons of reasons why you can get oily skin, there are a number of ways you can keep things under control. Here’s an infographic to show you how to get rid of oily skin.
