Oily Skin

Oily Skin

The human body, both male and female, naturally produce oils to keep the skin smooth and healthy, but production of excess oil can be counterproductive. Large quantities of sebum that fills the follicular reservoir results in oily skin and leakage of these oil onto the body surface. Acne and its followed scars, and blemishes are the results of excessive production of oil by the human body.

Causes for oily skin

According to Dr. Syed, when androgen level in the human body shoots up during puberty in both the male and female, ultimately they prompt the skin’s oil glands to hit maturity. During this time, the human body starts producing more oils, which repress the skin and make it appear oily. This condition can be treated and cured, but may sometimes continue into adulthood if not treated before. People who have oily skin are more likely to suffer from acne followed by the acne scars.
