Oily skin is a common problem. Many men complain that each time they expose their skin to moisture (shower, pool, hot tub, etc.) they have to towel off for a long period of time to remove all of the wetness from the face. The forehead and nose regions are problem areas that are prone to oil and have a tendency to become extremely shiny unless dried completely. Hours later, however, these areas will become oily again. To better this situation, it's important not to rub the face incessantly—this creates more oil. Stimulating the skin too much can rouse the oil glands and worsen the problem. The key is to invest in skin care for men that is created specifically for oily skin; a three step skin care regime should be followed rituously! Use a moisturizing gel to hydrate skin with water instead of oil.
