Our skin is made up of different types of cells, lipids, and appendages. One of these appendages is the sebaceous glands. Sebaceous glands release oil to provide for surface lipids to maintain and lubricate our skin. When these glands release excess oil, our skin may become shiny and greasy which is what we call oily skin. Oily skin may give you glossy skin but it may make you prone to multiple skin concerns leading to an uncomfortable lifestyle.
