Oily skin is most commonly found in young people, and sometimes in more mature people as well. Oily skin is determined by genetics and this condition is not age related. It is usually classified as over activity of your sebaceous glands in your skin that produces the sebum (natural oil) of your skin. Some may have an oily T panel and some may have a full oily face.
Oily skin is not always necessarily a problem, but when the individual feels embarrassed by the shiny appearance of their face or if the skin starts developing more comedons and pimples, it can be seen as a problem.
Some factors that can have an effect on your oily skin is stress, genetics, menstrual cycle, environment that you work of live in, climate and diet. Oily skin is very easy to treat but we need to find the cause and then treat the problem.
