What causes your face to be oily?

Oily skin is known medically as seborrhea and is caused by excess skin oil produced within the pores. During puberty and other life events, fluctuating hormones can result in increased androgen levels - androgens are considered one of the top oily skin causes. As these glands mature, oil production increases.

How do you stop oily skin?

Wash your face twice a day with a gentle face cleanser.
  1. Choose a gentle face soap that cleans your face without drying out your skin.
  2. Use warm water when washing your face.
  3. Dry your face thoroughly with a soft towel after washing.
  4. Stay away from harsh soaps or facial cleansers designed to dry out skin.
