Ladies, if you’re one of the many women with oily skin like me and it’s got you wondering if there are any benefits of oily skin, this article is for you! Let’s face it, we always think the grass is greener on the other side, and those of with oily skin think dry skin is so much easier to deal with, but I’ve found 7 little known benefits to having oily skin that I think will surprise and delight you!
1. Brownie Points
One of the little known benefits of oily skin is that it tans easier than other types of skin. I know, we are always discouraged to tan and I’m definitely not recommending you go and douse yourself in cooking oil and bake in the sun! I’m merely mentioning this fact to those of you who have oily skin and already tan so that you know that you can enjoy a more even tan that those with other types of skin.
2. G.I. Jane
Another one of the major advantages of having oily skin is that is totally camouflages fine lines and wrinkles and shows the sign of aging at a much slower rate than any other skin type. Yeah, it sucks to have to have to buy an economy sized box of blotting papers but the fact that our skin conceals lines and wrinkles is an awesome trade-off!
3. Fresh Faced
This little factoid might not seem like a benefit of having oily skin, but it actually is! Having oily skin gives you a natural glow on your face without having to use beauty products to achieve the look! You might not think a shiny T-zone is cute, but believe me; people buy products to mimic the look you get naturally and having oily skin gives you a healthy glow!
4. Low Maintenance
Advantages of having oily skin also include being low maintenance in terms of skincare. I know, clogged pores and constantly reapplying makeup is not low maintenance in your eyes! However, compared to potential skin problems that other skin types suffer from, oily-skinned gals have it much easier so the experts say.
5. Skin so Soft
An additional benefit of having oily skin is that your skin will be softer and more moisturized over the years. Being a teen with oily skin can be the pits with frequent breakouts and other skin problems but as we age, oily skin has a suppler and soft look to it and the frequency of acne should decrease significantly.
6. Thick Skin
One of the best benefits of oily skin is that it’s very resilient against environmental elements. Oily- skinned ladies can enjoy having skin that can face all sorts of different environments and not be affected by it! Oily skin laughs in the face of wind and sun because our thicker and moister skin can take more of what the earth dishes out!
7. Cheap Upkeep
Lastly, one of the top benefits of oily skin is that our skincare routine is cheap! Yeah, our foundation can change color in the middle of the day but all in all, compared to some other skin types, we have it pretty inexpensive. Compared to skin care regimens of other types of skin, we probably use 1 or 2 other products which are relatively low-cost!
Do you agree with these benefits of oily skin? Although having oily skin can definitely be annoying and frustrating, but we’ve got to make the best of the hand that our skin was dealt with and work with our slick skin! What do you think the benefits of having oily skin are?
