One of the immediate responses most people have when dealing with oily skin is that they try to entirely eliminate the oil. They reach for cleansers designed to strip the oil away from their skin and leave it at that. This is actually a rather bad approach. You do want to try and deal with the excess oil on your skin, but you don’t want to dry your skin out or cause excess irritation to it with such products. This actually stimulates your skin’s natural defenses. Unfortunately for people who have made this mistake before, your skin’s natural defense against dry skin and irritation is to produce oil. You can and will make your skin even oilier than it was before if you opt to use powerful products for drying out your skin. You should find products formulated for oily skin, but don’t reach straight for the extra strength products.
