Don't Confuse Oil with Moisture

You might be tempted to skip a moisturizer because your skin is already oily, but oil isn't hydration. In fact, dehydration can prompt your skin's glands to produce more oil. The solution? Applying a non-comedogenic oil-free moisturizer that seals your skin's essential moisture without clogging your pores--just be sparing where your face tends to be oiliest.

Resist the Urge to Over-Wash Your Face

Your inclination may be to strip your skin's oils with drying cleansers or vigorous scrubbing, but this only triggers more oil production as a defense mechanism. Instead, look for a gentle cleanser or makeup remover that contains salicylic or glycolic acid which can cut through oiliness to lift dirt and build-up.

Keep Your Face Towels & Makeup Brushes Clean

Anything you use on your face daily collects dirt and bacteria which can clog your pores and lead to irritation and breakouts. Wash makeup brushes and pads with a gentle cleanser like micellar cleansing water or an antibacterial solution, and change your face towels regularly.

Cleansers and Makeup Removers

Choose mattifying solutions that purify your pores without stripping your skin of the moisture it needs. Charcoal-infused face washes, and cleansers or wipes that don't require rinsing or harsh rubbing are ideal for effectively and gently lifting excess oil.
