Having oily skin can feel like a pimply predicament, especially since all that excess sebum—along with dirt and dead skin cells—can clog your pores and trigger a nasty breakout. Chances are, you’ve tried squashing your spots (a big no-no!) or fallen trap to over-washing your face. The last thing you should do is try to strip your skin of moisture, especially when oily skin types are said to experience signs of aging at a slower pace. You’ve got natural hydration bursting from your skin—you just have to learn how to give it the right kind of love! It’s impossible to change up your skin type, so opt for a simple routine that’s tailored to unclog your pores, effectively control sebum production, and mattify your complexion.
