For people with oily skin, avoiding the greasy and oil-dripping feeling is nothing short of entering a combat zone. All oil-free lotions, creams, serums have been tried, but nothing seems to provide permanent relief.
It is fairly common for people to be observant about your looks, and yeah, it may sound funny, but with time, you even get used to strange stares. I am sure, every time anyone stares at your oily face, you must be saying this to yourself, "Yeah buddy keep staring, I know my face is an oil refinery, need some oil to fry? Yep, you can borrow it for free! I shall be more than happy to help."
Your Face is a Canvas for Zits
You rub, you scrub, you wash, but still are unable to get rid of zits. They can pop up anytime and ruin your best laid plans for an upcoming event. You try different hairstyles to cover the zits on your forehead. So bangs always come to the rescue, but this, unfortunately, instigates more zit growth.
Difficulty in Applying Makeup
People with oily skin need to choose the right kind of makeup. With every slight change in the weather, the choice for the makeup changes. Light makeup is always preferred because heavy makeup will surely end up in a glossy face. So, at every party or special occasion, your compact and skin become best buddies. And if, by chance, you happen to leave your makeup on for the entire night, the next day, you are bound to see the oily version of yourself before the mirror.
Photogenic, What's That?
Every time people with oily skin face the camera or try to click a selfie, their skin looks shiny, especially the t-zones, as if a hundred spotlights are focused on it, and all you get is light without any distinct face. For this very reason when camera flashes, you choose to hide behind your friends.
Closet Stacked with Beauty Products
People with oily skin have their closet stuffed with oil-free products. Every product is meant for reducing the oil, and these cosmetics are essential to you. Even during travel, these products are your best companions. You may forget to pack your lunch, but no way you will forget to pack these products.

I know all you guys must have done this at some point, that is, reached office without your wallet, you won't worry much , but without your wipes, the whole day is spent cursing and pulling your hair.
