What causes Oily Skin ?

A major cause of oily skin is hormones. The problem usually starts around puberty and for many people it can last a lifetime. Anything that causes the hormones to fluctuate, e.g. stress, illness can cause the skin to produce more oil. For lots of women hormone changes occur not only during puberty, but also at the start of every menstrual cycle. Some of the most common areas that produce more sebum (oil) are face, head, chest and back.

Our skin produces natural oil to protect itself from the environment and bacteria. The oil helps keep skin healthy and hydrated. Most people with oily skin tend to over wash their face using harsh products to get rid of the excess oil, this makes your skin produce more oil as it feels the skin does not have enough moisture to protect it.
