Skin Toners are tempting for us all women, however women with oily skin should avoid Toners, Toners tend to dry the skin out which cause the oil glands in your skin to over work and produce even more oil which can make your problem worse, our skin is meant to stay hydrated and moist, once it dries up, it starts producing more oils to moisturize itself, so instead of using alcohol based Toners opt to use natural substitutes like Aloe vera gel with lemon juice or witch hazel.
2- Don’t Use Greasy Moisturizers.
Drying up the skin should be avoided as well as adding extra unneeded grease, using Moisturizers that contain Petroleum oils or even vegetables oils is not suitable for those with oily skin, instead opt to use oil-free moisturizer which instead of clogging up the pores with grease that eventually lead to breakouts, locks the moist and water into the skin to keep it Hydrated.
