Oily skin is a struggle: You probably never leave the house without blotting papers in your bag. Makeup products with matte formula are also your top choices to help minimize the greasy look. It takes a lot of effort to get rid of that unwanted sheen across your face (TBH, it's tiring), and the worse part: you're more prone to acne, blackheads, and large pores.
The best way to tackle this problem is through your skin care routine: Just as you choose certain makeup products that are supposed to work better on your oily skin, you should also pick your skin care products accordingly... especially your toner.
