Deep-cleansing your face early in the morning or after a long day of work is one of the most refreshing feelings in the world. Unless you’ve chosen a face-wash formula that is incompatible with your skin type and is causing adverse effects. While finding the perfect face washes for oily skin can be tricky, the right face wash effectively washes out the oil, leaving a mattified base for the rest of your skin-care routine. It should also unclog pores and prevent acne or breakouts. Moreover, it shouldn’t dry out your skin too much, so that it ends up feeling like a barren land. Luckily, we’ve got you covered! Here are our top five choices for face-washes to combat oily skin

Infused with charcoal, this face-wash is the best way to combat oily skin and protect your skin from pollution.

One of the primary aggravators of several skin problems is pollution, which is what makes the usage of activated charcoal so important.

A milk-bath is one of the most luxurious experiences and is great for skin health and glow. But of course, it is impractical and expensive. So, the next great option is to use a milk-based face cleanser, like the one offered by NIVEA. It combines milk with an Indian beauty staple — besan or gram flour, to effectively remove excess oil from the skin. NIVEA is synonymous with good skincare in India, so if you want to try a trusted brand, this should be it.
