Acne, Redness, Blackheads & Breakouts. Are these some of the skin problems you struggle with? If yes, chances are that you have oily skin. The reason for oily skin is the sebaceous glands in our skin that sometimes produce excess sebum (an essential substance to naturally moisturise our skin). However, too much sebum can lead to oily skin and clogged pores, in turn leading to various oily skin woes.
In this article we will be taking you through a simple, everyday routine for oily skin. Read on to find out!
1 Cleanse your skin
Start and end your end by washing your face with a mild, soap-free & water-based cleanser that will help deep cleanse your face and remove any excess oil. However, make sure to not use anything too harsh on your skin as it may take away the necessary oils from your skin. A gentle face wash will provide the right cleansing without drying it out.

2 Exfoliate, Exfoliate, Exfoliate!
Oily skin is immensely prone to blackheads & breakouts due to clogged pores and excessive sebum production. Exfoliate your skin at least 2-3 times a week with a natural face scrub with mild granules that will help remove dead skin, tan & blackheads.

3 Keep on Masking
A clay-based Face Mask will work wonderfully for a skin prone to oiliness. Excess oil on the face clubbed with sweat can lead to clogged pores, breakouts and acne. A clay based Face Mask enriched with Ayurvedic Herbs will help heal your skin, reduce pigmentation and acne, pimples & dark spots.

4 Gel it on
A gel based moisturiser is ideal for oily skin. They are lightweight & aqua based and will help reduce acne, pimples and redness. A non-oily & nourishing gel will help tighten the pores and purify the skin.
