People with oily skin are more prone to acne due to excess sebum production. Sebum is an oily secretion produced by the sebaceous glands in our skin. This makes it essential to cleanse your skin, at least twice a day to remove dirt and impurities that accumulate on our face. However, do not over-cleanse your face as it may strip away the natural oils.
