Can skin change from dry to oily skin?

So you stocked up on hydrating products last winter because you felt you skin was dry and tight but now the sun is out and with the heat you've noticed your skin is suddenly becoming oily! What gives? First of all, it is completely normal for your skin to change with the seasons. You can be extremely oily in the summer and dry as a bone in the winter. Or you can be oily year round for years and then all of the sudden you wake up and your skin is normal. Or vice versa. The simple fact is that with time and age our skin changes.  
With summer right around the corner it is going to be hard to tell if you're sweating or if you're oily. You can tell what sets these two apart by paying close attention to the look and feel. Sweat is more of a water based dripping look. When you are oily you will notice a shine and more of a greasy feel. 
Oily skin can be caused by a number of different things, You can naturally be oily as a result of genetics,your hormones could be changing as you grow older, or you could be lacking the moisture needed for healthy skin. Sometimes when our body lacks moisture it can over produce oils as a cry for help. This rule also applies to hair, skin and nails.When your body lacks dehydrated you will be able to tell by paying close attention to one of the three. It may seem counter-intuitive to add a cream, serums or oil to your skin when you are dealing with oil; but it is very important that you are hydrating your skin, even if your skin is oily. There are a few different options Urban Skin Rx offers that are great moisturizers for oily skin.  The HydraNutrient Radiance Restore Oil is a dry oil, that absorbs quickly into the skin and doesn't leave a greasy feel.  It also offers amazing ingredients like Rosehip Oil and Retinyl Palmitate.  The HydraBalance Moisturizer is a fan favorite; powered with Hyaluronic Acid, it's a water based moisturizer that hydrates without clogging pores or causing breakouts.  It leaves your skin soft and feeling amazing without any oiliness.  For extremely oily skin you could use the HydraFirm Serum as your night time moisturizer.  Extremely hydrating but absorbs completely into the skin and will not clog pores or cause breakout. 
Your skin changing can be frustrating, but remember, it's completely normal.  No matter what your skin is going through, Urban Skin Rx has got your back!
