What causes oily skin? Heredity plays a major role in oily skin, but hormones also play an important role. Pregnant women, as well as those who take birth control pills, sometimes find that the hormonal changes in their bodies make their skin oilier.
Stress can also cause the sebaceous glands to secrete more oil. In addition, poorly made cosmetics are likely to aggravate the condition of a skin that was only slightly greasy.
