Oily skin is a common issue these days for both men and women alike. So many people have excessive oily skin because of which they have acne, blemishes and pimples. Oily skin type is more prone to pimples, blackheads and breakouts due to the excess production of oil secreting glands. Also, washing face more often can strip the skin off its natural oil. Hence, the best way to take care of oily skin is to wash the face with lukewarm water only twice a day using a mild and alcohol free face wash. Also, always use face wash as per your skin type.

Here, I have compiled a list of some of the best facial cleansers for oily skin as well as sensitive skin available in the market.
