There’s only one thing we can say about having oily skin: It sucks. Not only does it make you stand out for the wrong reasons, it also makes you more prone to icky-sounding breakouts (read: blackheads, whiteheads, spots, acne, and pores the size of a volcano crater).  

If you’ve never had to deal with this terrible situation, then congratulations. You may skip this page and jump onto other interesting stuff, like this awesome piece about Gilas Pilipinas’s recent conquest of Kuwait.

But if waking up with an oily face is something that sounds familiar to you, then slide down and join FHM in concurring with the following truths:

2)   YOU WASH YOUR FACE AT 7 A.M. AND LOOK GREASY BY 8 A.M.

7)   MOST, IF NOT ALL OF YOUR SKIN CARE PRODUCTS HAVE A LABEL “FOR OILY SKIN”

Because you are hoping that one day, you’ll find the cure.


8)   SHAVING BECOMES SO MUCH HARDER BECAUSE OF ALL THAT OIL

Applying shaving cream feels like applying another layer of oil on your face. It’s like a war zone when you shave.


9)   YOU’VE READ SO MANY ARTICLES BUT NOTHING SEEMS TO WORK FOR YOU

But you still you won’t give up.


10)   YOU’VE TRIED WEIRD HOME REMEDIES TO STOP OILINESS
