Find out the causes, treatments and products -- then get your prone to oily skin back on track
Step 1: Cleanse correctlyKing recommends pre-cleansing with an oil-based cleanser. Sounds weird, but actually, oil attracts oil, so a cleanser like this will draw the oil from your skin and allow for better penetration of your treatments. One to try: Shu Uemura High Performance Balancing Cleansing Oil, $62.
Next, use a cleanser with salicylic acid morning and night. Look for one with tea tree in it as well to help fight inflammation. Try Dermalogica mediBac Clearing Skin Wash, $33.
