Feel like you’re fighting a daily battle to deal with your oily skin? It’s worth knowing that though your oily skin may seem problematic, it’s a skin type that comes with many pros. For starters, sebum is packed with vitamin E, an antioxidant that protects skin from environmental stress. Also, because oily skin is thicker than other skin types, it has a higher natural protection factor, meaning it ages at a slower rate. To keep your oily skin in good condition, try these routine essentials.
