What can cause nontypical shiny skin???

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!! :)

An odematous skin can look shiny,your protein in urine needs further evaluation.
