Do I Have Oily Skin, Or Is It The Weather?

Do I Have Oily Skin, Or Is It The Weather?

When the weather turns hot and humid in the summer, our skin undergoes various changes. We tend to produce more sweat since that’s how the body keeps itself cool.

On the other hand, your skin can also become dry and dull, so your sebaceous glands go into overdrive to keep your skin well-hydrated.

As a result, oil and sweat production skyrocket during the summer months.

Aside from forcing you to adjust your skincare regimen, the seasonal shifts might make it more difficult to tell the difference between sweating and oiliness.

So, if you are wondering: “Do I have oily skin or is it just the weather?” then keep reading.

In this article, we’ll go through the primary differences between the two.

Why Your Oily Face Is Ruining Your Confidence

Why Your Oily Face Is Ruining Your Confidence

You’ve got the perfect outfit. Your hair is on its best day between haircuts, styled perfectly, and looking great from every angle. Your swag is smooth. Your posture is right – head up, chest out, shoulders back.

You’ve been watching every Aaron Marino alpha.m YouTube video, and are putting his tips to practice to look confident as can be for your hot evening date.

You do everything right. Yet, there’s one thing your face does that reveals your true nervousness. It kills your look of confidence. And it’s unfortunate because you can’t stop it from occurring.

A racing heartbeat, pumping blood vessels, tightened muscles, and dripping sweat is all well and good when needing to escape a hungry grizzly bear. But, when it comes to perceived fears, i.e., a first date, a job interview, a sales pitch, etc. your body reacts the same way.

You can have the proper swag, smell good, use the perfect vocal tonality, and so on, but an oily, shiny face will make you look nervous and unconfident. It’s a clear tell that any human can notice.

Even if you’re sincerely confident, excessively oily skin will ruin it. It’s just not a good look.
