Excessively oily skin can occur as a stand-alone condition or occur with blackheads and acne. This condition is known as seborrhoea and usually starts around puberty, a time when hormones called androgens increase in levels. Oily skin usually affects the forehead, nose, cheeks and temples, areas of high concentrations of oil glands.
A simple skin care program can mop up excess oil on the skin, and protect the upper layers. Specialists often use anti-hormone tablets or a very low dose of Vitamin A to decrease oil production. Oily skin treatments have a 99% success rate.
