(1) Wash Your Face Properly

Use a gentle cleansing gel to clean your face with lukewarm water twice a day. Stay away from harsh facial cleansers and don’t use hot water to wash your face. Too frequent face cleansing will strip the natural oils and moisture of your skin. This will result to dry skin that tends to produce more oil. which will make your face oily and shiny. The most important thing is to keep your skin hydrated. Remember to apply an oil-free moisturizer immediately after face cleansing.

Foods like carrot, pumpkin, and broccoli are high in Vitamin A, which can lower oil secretion. Stay away from alcohol, fried, and spicy foods.
