  4. 4. Deep and Meaningful Pty Ltd P.O.Box 427 Ascot Vale Victoria, 3032 Australia ABN 33 080 145 795Oily SkinPeople who have oily skin tend to be abusive towards it in an attempt to dry up the oiliness. By doing so they candehydrate their skin, at times severely, possibly leading to further problems associated with this skin type (i.e.acne) and further sebum production as the skin stripped of oil will increase production in an attempt to rectifywhat it considers a problem (the lack of oil).A positive to oily skin, is that it tends to age slower than other skin types as the oil production protects the skinfrom moisture loss.Characteristics of an Oily skin:  Greasy feel to the skin  Even after cleansing, the skin may look and feel oily by mid-morning.  Pores are enlarged and quite noticeable.  Texture is coarse  Is generally a thicker skin with a sallow (yellowish) appearance  May look dull  Has a tendency to develop blemishes. (papules, pustules, blackheads, whiteheads)Conditions an Oily skin may experience:  Acne/blemishes  Dehydration  Scarring and/or Pigmentation from acne  Flakiness (if dehydration is severe)Page 4 of 11 Copyright © D&M 2009

In Beauty Therapy when we talk about a dry skinwe are referring to a skin that lacks adequate production of sebum (Alipidic).It is also important to understand that a skin that was perhaps oily in the past, with age, can become a dry skin assebum production slows down with age. With this in mind you must not just take the size of the pores intoconsideration (as pores do not shrink in size as sebum production slows) but consider all other characteristics.Characteristics of a Dry skin:  Lacking in adequate sebum production, though a slight shine may appear by late afternoon to evening on some areas of the skin.  Pores are barely visible, unless the skin was previously oily.Page 6 of 11 Copyright © D&M 2009
