Although a bit of natural oil is good for moisture preservation on your skin, it can easily become a bother when it is in excess. This is why people often feel like they are always fighting a losing battle when it comes to dealing with an oily face.
Oily skincomes about naturally when your sebaceous glands which lie under your dermis become larger and as a result produce excess oil.
Causes of oily skin
Just like many other things that are passed along in your family, same thing happens to oily skin. If both of your parents or one of them has oily skin, the chances that you inherited your shiny nose from him/her are very high. But no need to worry because research has shown that the oilier the skin, the younger we look, and the less wrinkles we get; but at times it can be too much.
According to a featured research on sciencedaily.com, in addition to stress affecting you physically and psychologically, it also plays a part when it comes to your dermatological issues. This is because when your stress levels raise, cortisol, which is the stress hormone in your body, also rises and in return increases the amount of oil produced leading to that greasy look on your skin.
Some forms of birth control can easily lead to oily skin. This happens when these BC cause dehydration and the sebaceous glands end up overproducing sebum to compensate for the loss.
Other causes for oily skin include over using derma care products, weather, fluctuating hormone levels and different types of medication.
Remedies for oily skin
A little bit of oil is good for the skin, but too much of a good thing can also be bad. That said, here are a few easy ways one can use to maneuver through this greasy situation.
