Oily Skin Treatment

The human body naturally produces oils to keep the skin healthy, but too much of the oils can be counter productive when it comes to the appearance of the skin. Blemishes and acne scars are often a result of excessive oils produced by the human body.

“The good news is that there exist a number of ways to treat oily skin,” says Dr. Shumaila, the lead dermatologist at Dermalase. “Treatment for oily skin may start from over-the-counter cleansers and include dermatologist prescribed gels to a range of cosmetic treatment options.”

According to Dr. Shumaila, androgen level shoot up during puberty in both male and female, ultimately prompting the skin’s oil glands to hit maturity.
