& Causes

Oily skin

Your skin’s production of oil can be affected by many factors, with many of these being caused by hormones. A few common experiences can trigger hormonal changes that lead to an increase in sebum production such as: puberty, pregnancy, menstruation and stress.

Oily skin is prone to blackheads and other blemishes. It occurs more often in men than in women, and it predominantly affects adolescents and younger persons.
