Dermatologists Say These Are the Best Face Washes for Oily Skin
For those of us with oily skin, blotting paper is just as important as the hand sanitizer, tissues, and lip balm we carry in our bags. (Shout-out to Too Cool For School’s Dinoplatz Mulberry Blotting Paper, $8, which has been a Byrdie staple pretty much forever.) Seriously though, when your skin produces too much oil—or sebum, if you prefer the more technical term—it can be seemingly impossible to mattify your complexion, keep makeup in place, and control acne flare-ups.
According to dermatologist Jeremy Fenton, MD, of Schweiger Dermatology Group, you have to be cautious of a cleanser that is too harsh or drying. “It can rob the skin of its natural oils,” he says. “This, in turn, can sometimes cause your skin to produce more oil to compensate if your skin gets too dry. In those situations, I recommend a [gentler] cleanser with soothing ingredients.” We love this paraben-free, sulfate-free, green tea–infused gel formula.
