What is Greasy Overactive Skin?
On the downside it is shiny, coarse with enlarged pores, prone to blackheads and very hard to look after. On the upside, your skin ages at a slower rate than your dry skinned sisters!!
Oil producing sebaceous glands are in over-drive and produce more oil than the skin can effectively cope with. It does not always cover the whole face but can settle in an area known as the T zone - this is the forehead and the centre of the face. During periods of hormonal upheaval such as the Menopause the imbalance of oil secretion can be more pronounced.
