1. Clean your skin using an oil-based lotion

This is not the first thing that comes to mind for oily skin… But look! Your skin needs to be well hydrated. If it isn't, it will compensate by making more oil. Remove your makeup with a cleansing oil before a more conventional cleansing method.

2. Don't wash your face in the evening

We often say that water can't do any harm. That washing your face twice a day can help remove traces of oil and blocked pores. Wrong! Your skin might overreact. Clean your face with water in the evening only. With a little soap or a gentle cleanser to remove makeup and excess sebum. In the morning, just spray a toner.

3. Avoid moisturizing masks and oily products

This is a tricky balance. On one hand, we have to retain the skin's natural hydration, but on the other, we mustn't use too many oily products. Opt for a non-oily moisturizer and foundation. They will not block pores and will make your skin look fresher. Blocked pores lead to whiteheads and blackheads formation. That is why blackheads/whiteheads are such a common occurence in oily skin.

4. Exfoliate every morning

If you have blotchy skin, exfoliating every morning can work miracles. If your skin is sensitive, do not exfoliate more than once a week, and use a product or gentle glove that are especially for the face. Avoid products that are too grainy, which can create microscopic cracks in the skin. Opt for an exfoliator with synthetic, perfectly round grains.

5. Tie your hair back when you go to bed and change your pillow case every two days

The products that we put on our hair are fantastic for hair but they can sometimes causes small zits on acne-prone skin. If you have long hair, put it in a ponytail before you go to bed so that your face doesn't lie on your hair. And change your pillowcases as often as possible.

6. Always use a clean towel to dry your face

Your family might think you are a diva, but it doesn't matter! Only use clean towels to dry your face. It doesn't matter whether you use cloth or paper towels. The main thing is that they are clean. The towel that you used for the rest of your body contains traces of oils, lotions, and soaps. This is not a problem if you reuse it for your body, but it can cause problems if you rub it on your face.
