Oily skin is coarser and thicker than the other skin types. It is caused by excess production of oil (the technical term is sebum). Here the oil producing sebaceous glands are overactive or hyperactive and hence they produce more oil than is needed. The oil oozes and gives the skin a greasy shine.
The good news is that oily skin helps skin age more slowly with fewer wrinkles. The bad news is that people with oilier skin tend to suffer more with blackheads and acne. This skin type requires constant care and tends to get affected by weather changes.
