5 cleansers for oily skin that will change your life

If you’re battling oily skin, using the appropriate cleanser is a key step in your skincare routine. A good cleanser will erase dirt, grime, and keep breakouts at bay. Keep in mind, it’s important not to choose a cleanser that is cream-based or oil-based and avoid using a harsh or stringent face wash because it will dry out skin which encourages oil production. After cleansing, skin should feel clean and refreshed not tight. After scouring the market, these oily skin friendly cleansers will help you get your glow on minus the shine.
