1. Exfoliate Exfoliate!
Oily skin has an excess of sebum production that makes it look greasy. It is highly possible that these pores trap dirt and dead cells and lead to breakout! To avoid this, you got to exfoliate almost every day! Why? Winters anyways bring in the flaky skin that needs to be removed.
Also, gentle exfoliation on a regular basis with a mild scrub gives flawless skin as the pores are cleaned every day!

Carry a creamy cleanser that helps in cleansing and doesn’t dry your skin either as the weather gets cold!
Wash your face twice a day with the cleanser to get best results! Your skin has to be managed in a way that it doesn’t get too oily or too dry either! If your skin gets greasy in patches, carry makeup wipes or baby wipes to blot a specific area dry!
3. Use a toner
Oily skin needs toning! You got to make your pores tightened in order to prevent too much oil production! Make sure you use a good toner for oily skin every night after the cleansing routine to get the best results!
Just take some of the toner in a cotton pad and apply on the face generously!
4. Go for Non-comedogenic Sunscreen
