If you have oily skin, it’s something you have to live with. And with oily skin, comes a host of troubles like acne, blackheads, and enlarged pores. Thank goodness, for Korean beauty though. There are endless options for products that can make living with oily skin much easier.
Most of us tend to make the mistake of using a harsh cleanser in a bid to remove excess oil, not realizing the fact that using harsh cleansers or over cleansing can actually make your skin to produce excess sebum, and make your skin oilier. The best way to manage oily skin is to use a pH balancing cleanser that effectively cleanses your skin while ensuring hydration without stripping the skin dry.
Here, we list out our favourite cleansers for oily skin that will ensure effective cleansing.
