Foaming cleanser: For oily skin foaming cleansers or cleansing pads with alpha and or beta hydroxy acids work best (cetaphil has a great foam cleanser for oily skin and neutrogena has great acid cleansing pads), only use toners when your face is extremely oily as we need some oils to prevent the skin from looking more wrinkled and aged, exfoliate only once a week ...Read more
