If your skin is oily, use an oil-free foaming cleanser to wash your face. Rinse with plenty of warm water. You may want to use a toner or astringent after you’ve washed your face, but be careful because it might irritate your skin. They can remove extra oil, making your face less shiny, and help keep skin clean. Source: WebMD

Using a great mask for oily skin nightly will help you strike a balance between drying products and oily skin. Choose a product specifically marketed for oily skin and use your fingertips or a fan brush to apply, Connolly says. Leave on for about three to five minutes, and then rinse with warm water.

Even if your oil always seems to be in overdrive, you still can’t go without hydration. “Don’t leave your skin naked,” says Joanna Vargas, a celebrity aesthetician in New York, NY. “Your moisturizer protects the skin against pollution and dirt.” Skipping it is like asking for trouble. And even if you’re oily, it’s probably not enough to hydrate your whole face. “It’s pretty rare to produce that much oil on the entire face, not just T-zone,” notes Elizabeth Tanzi, M.D., dermatologist and director of Capital Laser & Skin Care in Washington, D.C.

Use Sunscreen
The sun is extremely drying and damaging to the skin. For people with oily skin, the drying effects may seem nice at first as it can help dry out the shine. But like we discussed above, this will only lead to more problems in the long-term, with the added risk of skin-cancer to also consider. Keep your skin safe and pimple free by applying a lightweight, non-greasy sunscreen or a powder sunscreen. Mineral powder sunscreens have come a long way since their original versions. These non-greasy powder formulas are made up of titanium dioxide, zinc oxide and iron oxide particles that won’t clog pores yet still block infrared rays and offer broad spectrum protection.
