Other than the typical oily skin of the face, what can cause shiny skin on other parts of the body?? Recently, I have noticed that my arms, legs, and chest have become unusually shiny. I really noticed it more when I took a group photo with friends and the flash from my camera made my skin look as reflective like a fish. Ive never had this problem before. Also, I feel I should add, cause I don't know if it could be related but a recent trip to the docs revealed that I have protein present in my urine. Any help would be appreciated!! :)
