Common Causes Of Oily Skin

Genetics is one of the major causes of sebum secretion, people who suffer from oily skin caused by genes have a harder time getting rid of it but there are ways to minimize the symptoms.

The accumulation of dirt on the surface of the skin is another cause of oily skin. It is very important to wash your skin at least twice a day if you suffer from oily skin to remove dirt and grit. Research shows that dirt increases the chances of clogged pores and excess oil on the skin.
