It is possible to have oily skin and not be acne-prone. Due to overactive oil glands in the skin, oily skin tends to have a shiny complexion and the appearance of larger or more visible pores. Blackheads and whiteheads may appear but not necessarily full-blown acne including papules and pustules. Products listed here lean towards purifying the skin, helping to control oil production and have antibacterial properties. If you are unsure if you should be using strictly oily skin products or a combination of oily skin and acne products we suggest booking a consultation so we can assist you in finding the right regime for you.
