SYMPTOMS—Excessively oily skin
CAUSES—The sebaceous glands, which secrete oil onto the skin, produce more oil than they should. The excess oil clogs pores. Heredity is a major cause, but diet and hormones affect it. Oil gland secretions can be increased by stress, hormonal activity changes, hot weather, pregnancy, or taking certain types of birth control pills.
The forehead, nose, chin and upper back tend to have more sebaceous glands; hence can be the sites of the most problems. Oily skin is most common among teenagers.
