The Best Face Washes for Oily Skin, According to Dermatologists
No one likes having a greasy face, but oftentimes, what we do to combat the oil leads to the production of even more oil.
To help you choose a face wash that will help control your oil without stripping your skin of it, we spoke to five dermatologists (and two makeup artists) for their recommendations.
…While squeaky-clean skin may be tempting, “It is important to remember that you still want to treat skin gently,” says Dr. Michelle Park of Washington Square Dermatology.
According to Park, having an excess of sebum can lead to clogged pores from dead skin cells sticking to the sebum, which results in acne. If you are prone to breakouts, she recommends looking for a face wash that can gently exfoliate the skin to get rid of impurities, dirt, and oil. “Products that contain low amounts of benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid will achieve this without being too harsh,” says Park. Dr. Tara Rao of Schweiger Dermatology Group agrees that those two ingredients can help reduce some of the oil buildup that occurs on the skin throughout the day.
