What is oily skin?

The skin is full of pores known as hair follicles, attached to these hair follicles are sebaceous glands which produce an oily substance called sebum. Sebum is made to lubricate the hair and skin and stop it from drying out.

The excess sebum can cause enlarged pores, dull or shiny thick skin, blackheads, whiteheads and pimples.

What causes oily skin?

The severity of oily skin depends on the following factors:

  1. Androgens – androgens are males hormones present in both males and females, unbalanced levels cause the maturation of the skins sebaceous glands. As these glands mature, oil production increases.
  2. Hereditary factors could also determine how your skin reacts to the environment and to hormones.

Client Feedback


Agi was extremely thorough, pleasant and informative. She explained everything throughout and made me feel extremely relaxed and comfortable during a treatment that can be a little awkward! Great member of staff!!! Thank you!! face


I was really impressed from start to finish. Smooth You was easy to find, and the shop front was very bright and welcoming. Sophie came to collect me from the front introducing herself listened and basically tenderied to my needs. I really enjoyed my treatment particularly the head massage which I was a little wary of and the facial was fantastic. Would definitely recommend. client
