Typically, opposites attract. But when it comes to your skin, the best way to fight oil is actually with more oil! We know, it sounds crazy, but this longtime Asian beauty practice works wonders for getting soft, clean skin without that annoying dry and tight feeling.

Oil cleansers are a super easy and gentle way to melt off dirt, makeup, and oil that builds up on your skin. Nourishing options like olive oil, grapeseed oil and almond oil will leave your skin feeling supple and refreshed.

If you have oily skin, you’re probably assuming cleansing oils won’t work for you — or are bad for your skin. Actually, the opposite is true! Super drying products with ingredients like detergents and sulfates strip the natural oils on your skin, which then encourages your body to overproduce oil.
