Dealing with an oily or shiny face can be a challenge.  Too much oil on the skin looks bad, and it causes a myriad of skin problems to occur.  Most people with oily skin have it worse in the t-zone area, the nose, chin, and forehead.  It tends to look shiny and greasy all the time.  This is an embarrassing problem and is hard to get rid of at times.  This extra oil can lead to pimples, blackheads and eventually acne.  It also causes the pores to be enlarged.  Enlarged pores are a problem that many people complain of, but do not know how to remedy. 

Many face washes and facial ingredients designed for oily face are very drying.  They strip away all of the oil.  This can leave the skin dry and irritated, or it may prompt the sebaceous gland to produce even more oil.  Zinc pca is a natural ingredient that can make a big difference in oily shiny skin.  It does take away excess oil, but it does not remove all of the oil.  It is a gently cleanser that cleans down into the pores.  Zinc also has the unique ability to help regulate the sebaceous gland, keeping it from overproduction of oil in the future.

Every woman knows that a shiny nose can destroy your look.  A shiny nose can be a problem for men as well.  Oil usually accumulates in the t-zone for most people.  It is most common during adolescence, but people of any age can have a problem with oily skin.  Extra oil can be caused by several things like hormonal changes, heredity and stress.  Hormonal changes often occur during the teenage years making this group highly susceptible.  Women may get oily nose and skin during pregnancy or menopause.  Too much oil on the nose not only looks unattractive, it also leads to problems.  People with oily skin are more prone to pimples, blackheads and acne breakouts.  Extra oil on the nose also leads to enlarged pores.  To reduce shine the skin needs to be cleaned thoroughly and with the proper products.  Many products made for oily skin are too harsh and tend to make the skin too dry.  This can lead to irritation and flaky skin.  The skin needs a certain amount of oil to look good.  A gentle natural product is usually best to combat shiny skin.  Avoid washing more than two times per day.  Twice per day should be enough to remove excess oil and dirt for most people.  Blotting sheets can be helpful for use when you are on the go.
