Kiran Lohia, Medical Director of Lumiere Dermatology, tells us important points to remember while taking care of oily skin:
Ø  Look for moisturisers, which are non-comedogenic - the ones that do not cause pimples and clog pores.
 
Ø  Try to use gels or lotions instead of creams. The latter ones will make skin look greasier and might cause break outs.
 
Ø  Look for face washes with salicylic acid. It is an important ingredient  which reduces  excess oil and helps get rid of blackheads.
 
Ø  When one turns 28, one finds that your skin needs a bit more moisturisation than it did before. So, try and include actives such as vitamin C, retinol, retinyl palmitate, lactic acid or glycolic acid in skin care regime for the best anti-ageing results.
 
Ø  Never give sun screen a miss.
 
Ø  Drink lots of water. Stay hydrated. It will help relieve toxins from the body.
