Unfortunately this is not really a myth but a common belief for people with oily skin. Your skin might be oily but it still needs hydration. “When a person with oily skin uses a cleanser that removes all of the natural oils, the skin will overcompensate by producing more oil,” says Melissa Mitchel Willis, a makeup artist and image consultant in New Orleans. So remember to slather on the moisturiser after a good wash, in fact, be brave and try out some facial oil as well!
