Your oil glands are largely under the control of your hormones. Benzoyl peroxide doesn't slow down the oil glands. I'm going to move this to the oily skin forum.

The size of your pores control the oil production. It's very common to have "oily" skin in the T-zone area (forehead, nose, cheek area)... Nothing can shrink your pores, that's how you were born but BP can keep the oiliness under control.

Uh...the size of your sebaceous glands generally controls oil production, not the size of your pores. The pores are just a conduit to the surface.

Your skin type [oily, dry, normal, combination] is more or less determined by your genetic make up.

Other factors may include your eating habits [e.g. if you've got oily skin you might eat too much oily / fried food], cleansing habits [you wash too much/too little....only wash every morning and evening], vitamin deficiency [refer to eating habits..which might mean that you aren't having much nutrition] and use of comedogenic [pore-clogging] makeup.
