8 Tips For Managing Oily Skin

Wash your face twice a day with a mild, sulfate-free cleanser to remove excess oil and dirt without over-drying your skin.

Gentle Cleanser

Skipping moisturizer can lead to your skin producing even more oil to compensate for the lack of hydration.


A gentle, alcohol-free toner can help balance your skin's pH and minimize excess oil production. Look for toners with ingredients like witch hazel, salicylic acid, or niacinamide.

Use A Toner

When choosing skincare products, makeup, and sunscreen, opt for oil-free, non-comedogenic (won't clog pores) options to prevent further oil buildup.

Non-Comedogenic Products

Exfoliating 1-2 times a week can help remove dead skin cells that can contribute to clogged pores and breakouts. Use a gentle exfoliant with salicylic acid or alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs).

Exfoliate Regularly

Applying a clay mask once a week can help absorb excess oil and minimize the appearance of pores. Look for masks containing ingredients like kaolin or bentonite clay.

Clay Mask

Carry oil-absorbing blotting papers with you to blot away excess oil throughout the day without disrupting your makeup.

Blotting Papers

Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 30 every day, even on cloudy days. Look for oil-free or mattifying sunscreens to prevent greasiness.
