The skin is the largest organ in the integumentary system of human beings. It is an outer covering and the ectodermal tissue covers the muscles, bones and internal organs and protects them. It also guards the body against pathogens, regulates the body temperature and is an insulator. There are different types of skin – dry, normal and oily. Due to over secretion of sebum by the sebaceous glands the skin becomes oily. The surface of the skin becomes shinny and acne, pimples may develop. Further oily skin is prone to clogged pores, black heads and accumulation of dead cells which is not very appealing. Oily skin can be treated with home remedies. There are certain activated home remedies also which provide quick relief from this condition.
Genetics play a role as a cause of oily skin. If it runs in the family it is likely to be inherited. Over cleansing and over exfoliation using unsuitable skin care products may contribute to oily skin. Changes in seasons may lead to excess production of sebum forming oily skin. Birth control pills or medications affecting hormones may increase the production of sebum. Use of inappropriate skin care products which can strip the skin of oil will trigger even more oil to be produced causing oily skin. Pregnancy and menopause may trigger hormonal changes which can lead to oily skin. Due to stress also the glands can increase the oil production. Tanning can also trigger the glands to produce more sebum leading to oily skin.
