Dry not the target: Your face should have a certain amount of oil. Drying it out only causes the sebacious glands to start secreting more oil. Proper professional cleansers should help. Visit an esthetician to get proper guidance. Avoid cleansers with any alcohol in them, including astringents. ...Read more
