You may notice a change in your skin with the changes in weather. Summer brings oily skin while the skin seems to dry out in the winter months. Sun tanning is bad for oily skin. It may seem to dry it out temporarily but it actually triggers an injury response by the skin. This causes the glands to overproduce oil. Oily skin can also be genetic. When it runs in the family, chances are every member will have larger sebaceous glands.
