How to Deal With Oily Skin

Oily face is the last thing you will want in your life. It becomes greasy five minutes after you wash it. Many men have oily skin but it doesn’t mean you have to deal with it every day.

Oily skin isn’t the result of yesterday’s greasy burger. It can occur and persist for a number of reasons. Oil glands in your body produce a compound called sebum. When you produce too much sebum, it can clog your pores and create problems like acne. The term “blemish” sounds too dainty to describe those upheavals that can cause redness, swelling, and significant localized discomfort. If you leave acne alone, it may linger for weeks or months.

How To Prevent Oily Skin


People often tend to mistake oily skin for moisturization. Skin needs more than just oil to look healthy. Using a moisturizer will help you balance overly drying treatments you may be using. So, try to moisturize your skin even if it is oily.


Clogged pores are a major complication for your skin. Using a face scrub 1 to 2 times a week exfoliates your skin. It will remove the dead cells and other build-ups that may have accumulated on your face. You can use an oatmeal scrub to maintain cleaner pores. Don’t over scrub your face as your face may become dry due to it. Men with oily skin need to be gentle with their skin.

Cleanse your face with a face wash made especially for oily skin at least 2 times a day, once in the morning and once before you go to bed. You can clean your face midday if you find excessive oil at that time.

Do not over-wash your face as it may cause your face to dry out causing more production of oil in your face. If you dry out your face excessively then your body starts producing more oil to balance it to its natural state.

Make sure you don’t use soap on your face. The ingredients in these products dry out your face, causing irritation.


The struggle can be real for over-oily complexions. That’s where using the right skincare products for your complexions’ over-active oil glands come in. Along with your usual routine, a face mask that’s tailored specifically to your skin type can help minimize grease and heal breakouts.
