Do you experience an oily or shiny noise most of the time? Oily-skin types tend to have oilier T-zones than other skin types. This is due to overactive sebaceous glands with large pores to overproduce oil.
There are also other contributors to your excessively oily nose, such as:
- Growth Hormones
- Ovulation for premenopausal women
While it’s normal to accumulate oiliness during the day, waking up with a shiny nose can be annoying. However, you should know that pores can neither grow nor shrink. The good news is that you can control your oiliness in a variety of ways.
Let’s take a look at your options
How to Control Oiliness
1. Don’t be Harsh on Your Skin
Avoid cleansers with high pH levels and ingredients that can dry out your skin. Wash your face at most two times a day to avoid stripping away your natural oils. Sometimes your skin produces more oil because it’s dehydrated. Follow a simple skincare routine.
2. Drink Water & Eat a Balanced Diet
Make sure to stay hydrated all day long. Also, reduce your sugar intake and avoid processed foods, alcohol, and dairy.
3. Avoid Heavy Makeup
Go for oil-free and use foundations that give a matte finish. You can also use no-sebum setting powders.
4. Consult with a Dermatologist
If you still experience no change, it’s best to consult a dermatologist for the right prescription.
