The accumulation of excess oil on the outer skin will cause the formation of whiteheads, blackheads, blind pimples and numerous other skin issues.
But, if you are one of those who have oily skin you should know that as your skin age you will have fewer wrinkles compared to those with normal, or dry skin.
The excess oil is the reason why the sebaceous glands of the skin produce more sebum. If you have oily skin you are more likely to have shiny skin and large skin pores.
There are many factors which can cause the oily skin, such as:
- Hormonal changes
- Certain medications like birth control pills
- Dietary choices
You can prevent breakouts and acne by avoiding some foods like refined and processed foods.
Usually, the acne problems can lower the self-confidence of people, so they decide to solve their problem by using commercial products for beauty and skin care which in most cases will not provide the desired results, and what is worse they can cause side effects.
