Gentle foaming cleansers and cream face washes compliment those with acne-prone and oily skin. Look for formulas that contain salicylic acid and charcoal to help draw out excess oil and blocked pores.
While it can be tempting to over-exfoliate acne-prone and oily skin, this can increase oiliness. Using a gentle but effective exfoliator with salicylic acid can help to get rid of dry skin, unblock pores and prevent breakouts.
Even if your skin feels oily, don’t be tempted to skip moisturiser. Instead look for formulas that are non-comedogenic and oil-free. Ingredients such as hyaluronic acid and glycerin will help keep your skin hydrated without feeling greasy.
If you’re struggling with breakouts, apply a targeted treatment containing sulphur, salicylic or glycolic acid directly to any blemishes. This will help reduce redness, calm inflammation and smooth the skin.
