Whilst most people absolutely hate oily skin, others try and find the positives in it. Believe it or not, there are actually a couple of benefits from having oily skin, even if they do not quite outweigh the negatives. Think of having a built in moisturizer in your pores! Women with oily skin often hope for an oily skin delay aging process – a slower transition to the thinner more wrinkled skin that we associate with old age. They may not be hoping entirely in vain: though it’s true that women typically experience a drying effect on the skin when they reach menopause, having oily skin to begin with can make that process seem less intense.

So how else can oily skin be a blessing then?
