To manage oily skin, wash it with warm water and a gentle cleanser in the morning and at night. For particularly oily skin, use cleansers with an acid, such as benzoyl peroxide or salicyclic acid. Avoid using buffs and washcloths, as they can stimulate oil production.
Another way to manage oily skin is to cleanse it with medicated pads or blot oily areas with oil blotting papers. Moisturize the skin with oil-free moisturizer and use oil-free sunscreen. Oily skin can also be managed with homemade remedies, such as cleansing the skin with baking soda and water or applying cornstarch to oily areas.
