    Just imagine, if you had to choose between the two extremes which would it be.

    Very oily or very dry skin?

    I have moderately oily skin and I can't help thinking it would be alot less stress having dry skin. Maybe its just a case of 'the grass is always greener', I suppose. :dontknow:

    Oily - usually means less wrinkles as a person ages.

    Yea I can feel the oil on my face whilst im at work. I can't wipe as I have no tissue on me and also my hands are dirty. So I just have to work through it.

    URGH so gross!

    I can't because managers don't like it! Im not even allowed to go to toilet - but I go anyway as im not bursting my bladder for anyone. Also when I have done so before customers give me a funny look as if to say ''dont touch my food . . . ''!

    Oily!
    Dry skin is a pain in the arse! Trying to put make up on turns you into a piece of patchwork where the dry bits are and it just feels horrible.
    Plus dry skin tends to mean wrinkles..
    Oily skin is generally spottier but i'd rather be spotty and be able to cover it up than have horrible dry skin that turns me patchy on a night out.

    I suppose it is easier to moisturise dry skin regularly than wipe and clean excessively oily skin...

    I have psoriasis, so I have very dry skin as a result. I'd rather have dry skin than oily though. I hate looking 'shiny' lol.
