Grappling With Greasiness? Presenting, The Best Soaps For Oily Skin

Are your sebaceous glands working in overdrive? If yes, you’ve got a problem at hand. Excessive oiliness, when combined with dirt, grime, and other impurities, paves the path for myriad concerns—blackheads, acne, and clogged pores, to mention a few. And to tackle these troubles head-on, you must consider investing in oil-control soaps that cleanse your skin, all while curbing the overproduction of sebum.

But bear in mind, harsh bathing bars will strip your skin of its natural oils, furthering sebum secretion to make up for this dearth. Thereby, you must turn to gentle, natural soaps with ingredients such as aloe vera, neem, tea tree, and charcoal, which will help balance your skin’s oils while ensuring the removal of impurities. Peruse our edit of the best ones to buy from Nykaa.com!
