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.
