I struggled for years with my oily skin before I found the right products for me. Your skin needs some oil so it doesn't get dry, but too much oil can lead to pimples and blackheads. Acne is caused by dead skin cells and bacteria that collect in your pores and cause an infection.
The best beauty products for oily skin will give your skin the moisture that it needs without adding excess oil. They should also gently remove excess oil to prevent acne without over drying.
When shopping for skin care products, look for products without added oil. Clays will draw out excess oil, so try a clay mask once a week. You should also exfoliate once or twice a week to remove dead skin cells, which can really help reduce acne. If you are prone to acne, use products with salicylic acid to prevent acne.
