This is where a person complains of excess oils of the skin. They have fewer wrinkles and look younger for longer, but I guess it depends on your perspective, and if the oils are causing too much trouble. If you are noticing clothing staining, it might be a problem.
Causes of oily skin are unknown and there may be a genetic component. The good old American junk food fast food diet may also be a contributor.
Modern medication creams are a temporary fix for oily skin and the ultimate cause is not addressed.
From the natural perspective oily skin comes from a dietary imbalance, especially fast foods, tobacco, excess alcohol (more than 2 drinks a week), soda pop, and fast foods.
Topical treatments with natural cleansers help oily skin temporarily and beat chemical based popular treatments. Constipation may be a factor as toxins may be recycled.
