If your skin is oily it is probably due to the oil buildup on the outer skin layer which often leads to blackheads, whiteheads, blind pimples and skin irritations.

However, the good news is that the oily skin develops fewer wrinkles than the normal or dry skin. The skin becomes oily when the sebaceous glands produce excess sebum. People that suffer from this issue usually have large pores and shiny skin.

There are several reasons that cause oily skin such as dietary choices, genetics, too much stress and hormone changes in puberty. Some women are also prone to oily skin especially during pregnancy, menstrual cycles, menopause or while taking oral contraceptives. According to the experts, avoiding some kinds of food, such as refined sugar which usually leads to skin problems, may solve this problem.

Most people with oily skin use all kinds of beauty and cosmetic products which may reduce the large pores and acne, but they are not suitable for all types of skin.
