15 Tips For Oily Skin

An oily skin, as the name implies, is one in which the sebaceous or oil-producing glands are over active. As surface grease tends to attract dirt, an oily skin acquires a dirty surface film, that needs to be removed daily.

For this, we can adopt a proper cleansing procedure. The ideal cleansing routine is one that includes washing and cleansing. First the skin should be washed with a medicated soap or face wash using lukewarm water. This helps remove surface oil and dirt. Then we have to cleanse the skin, cleansing helps dislodge hardened oil from the pores.
