What you need to know about oily skin

Women with oily skin battle double trouble when it comes to appearances - excess oil on the skin can not only create a shiny look, it can also increase the amount of breakouts you get. From treatments and products to old wives' tales, there are several things you should know about your oily skin.

The best way to control oil throughout the day is to use mineral makeup products, according to Dr. Amy Wechsler, the resident dermatologist at Marie Claire Magazine. A weightless product like the Colorescience Pressed Mineral Foundation provides full coverage without clogging pores, which, with all the oil, can cause breakouts. Oily-skinned ladies should make sure all of their makeup is non-comedogenic, that is, won't clog pores.

When you're home, you can take some steps to control oil, too. Try a product like the Bliss No Zit Sherlock Breakout Busting Rubberizing Mask, which absorbs oil and impurities, clearing out the pores to prevent excess oil and pimples.

Is there an upside to oily skin? According to Wechsler, maybe. Some people say women with oily skin won't wrinkle until they are much older. Although this lore has not been scientifically proven, it is true that drier skin reflects less light, making it look less luminous. Plus, the more hydrated your skin, the more supple the surface, making it harder for lines and wrinkles to sink in.
