Use alcohol-free, oil-free, and non-comedogenic products
Before purchasing or using any skin products, be sure to check the labels. Watch out for products that are alcohol-based, as these tend to dry out the skin. For people with oily skin, products that can make the skin dry can trigger the glands to produce even more oil.
Meanwhile, comedogenic products can clog the pores and lead to acne breakouts. Oil-based products like essential oils can also make the skin look greasier.
Even if you have oily skin, it is still important to keep your skin hydrated with moisturizer. You may use a moisturizer specifically for oily skin.
Remember that when your skin dries, the glands respond by producing oil. Regularly hydrating your skin helps in regulate the production of oil.
