Skin is shiny, but not that oily

Recommended Posts

After using an AHA+BHA facewash, i notice my skin is getting shiner, it is a tiny bit oily but after i clean it, the shine is still there. It's not only on my t-zone but also on my cheeks. Is it possible that my facewash cause over-exfoliating?

Yes, it is possible to over-exfoliate and your description matches that! Over-exfoliation can remove too much of your surface skin cells, causing the skin to lose it's texture and reflect light more easily (hence, the shiny appearance). I would tone down the usage of that cleanser for awhile and see if this helps. Use a gentle cleanser for the most part and only use that one a few times.
