Causes

Oily skin is typically characterised by enlarged pores, and a shiny appearance. This is due to excess sebum, which plugs the hair follicles with oil and dead skin cells and causes whiteheads, blackheads or pimples. Acne is usually found on the face, forehead, chest, upper back and shoulders and affects people of all ages. Depending on its severity, acne can cause scarring on the skin. The earlier you start treatment, the lower your risk of such problems.
