When your oil producing sebaceous glands are overactive, producing more oil than needed, the result is often oily skin. Oiliness causes your skin to appear shiny, thick, dull, and even greasy, and you may find that your skin is prone to coarse, enlarged pores, pimples, blackheads, and other embarrassing blemishes.

Oiliness can be caused by a number of factors, including:

  • Genetics
  • Diet
  • Hormone Levels
  • Pregnancy
  • Birth Control Pills
  • Cosmetics
  • Humidity and Hot Weather

Oily skin is most commonly seen in teenagers as a result of the hormonal shifts of adolescence, but can occur at any age. The flow of sebum, or oil, that increases during adolescence tends to decrease as we get older, which is why skin often becomes dryer with age. During pregnancy or menopause however, hormonal shifts can also affect the oil balance and increase the activity of sebaceous glands. For many, skin tends to be oily only in certain areas, and dry or normal in others. This is referred to as combination skin.
