Oily skin looks worse if you don’t keep it clean. Cleanse your skin in the morning and at night with a pHbalanced foaming cleanser. “Make sure the cleanser is gentle, as products with high levels of glycolic acid and benzoyl peroxide can be very drying and lead to peeling and irritation,” explains Dr Philippa McCaffery from Clearskincare.
Try to regularly use an alcohol- free toner as well as a light, oil-free moisturiser.
Exfoliate with a granular scrub once or twice a week to unclog pores and stop spots.
Sunscreen can leave skin feeling greasy, so look for an oil-free sunscreen and apply daily.
If the oil build-up is extreme, consult your doctor. “Excessively oily skin is best treated with tretinoin (prescription vitamin A cream), which helps to regulate the overactive sebaceous glands that produce the sebum,” says Dr McCaffery.
