Oily skin can be a pain to take care of. Excessive secretion of oil on the top layer of skin generally results into breakouts, blackheads, whiteheads or other skin irritations. But it isn’t that bad as well as it develops lesser wrinkles than dry and normal skin. Oily skin can be due to a lot of factors. Some of which include genetics, the food we eat or the amount of stress you subject your body to. It can also be caused during puberty or pregnancy as one undergoes a lot of hormonal changes.
