If you’re looking for an effective, refreshing facial cleanser that is gentle on your skin, try CeraVe Foamin Facial Cleanser. 

Why is my skin oily?

Oily skin is caused by an excess of oil called sebum which is produced by your sebaceous glands. It can cause acne breakouts and an oily complexion. It’s a common misconception that drying out the skin is beneficial for treating excess oil, however, this can make it worse. The skin needs oil to prevent it from drying out, so when you strip the skin of this oil it will produce more than normal to make up for it. 

Skin Care Tips for Oily Skin

There are a range of steps you can take during your daily routine to help keep oily skin under control. Like all skin types, keeping hydrated is very beneficial for healthy skin. Use a gentle cleanser that removes excess oil, dirt and impurities without stripping the skin. Some toners and serums contain effective ingredients, which can help to control oil in the skin. Use a light moisturiser that is non-comedogenic (doesn’t block your pores). Always ensure that you remove makeup and cleanse your face before you go to bed.
