All skin types produce sebum or oil, from the sebaceous glands in the dermis. When the sebaceous glands are over-active, the high production of sebum causes it to rise through the follicular pores and onto the surface of the skin.
Dry skin may result from of a wide range of factors , environmental exposures, water quality, soaps and detergents, vitamin deficiencies and some medication. Paradoxically, dry skin can appear to worsen during the winter months.
