The Grooming Doctor | Why Do I Get a Shiny Face?

Dr Tom Mammone, Executive Director of Research & Development, Clinique explains:

"Men's skin tends to be more oil-rich because the male hormone is responsible for turning on oil-producing sebaceous glands.

"These can then become overactive and produce more than is needed, giving the skin a shiny appearance. Keep your skin clean, and maintain a basic routine: cleansing, exfoliating, and moisturising twice a day is just as important for men as for women.

"Follow with products that help control the shine, such as Clinique Skin Supplies for Men Oil Control Hydrator, which instantly absorbs oil for a smoother, more matte look. Pores are kept cleaner, clearer, and less clogged through exfoliating out the dirt, oil, and dead skin cells that enlarge their size."
