Let's start with the fundamental step of the beauty routine for oily skin: cleansing. Avoid oily or biphasic cleansers in favour of cleansing gels or delicate make-up remover wipes.
Pick a gentle cleanser - it’s tempting to think that oily skin needs to be ‘scrubbed’ of its oil, but it is important to keep the pH balance to keep oily skin calm. Pick a face wash that deeply cleanses, refreshes the skin, removes all excess sebum and bacteria. The right face wash for oily skin should leave the skin squeaky clean and hydrated.

At night you might choose to double cleanse
, perhaps using an oil-based cleanser, such as a cleansing oil or micellar water, followed by a water-based cleanser. Or remove make-up with gentle facial wipes before using your chosen cleaner. To get the most from oily skin, it is vital you wash off make-up, sebum, and any other impurities you might find on your skin at the end of the day, to avoid further breakouts.
