People with annoying oily and acne-prone skin know that the skin care products that you choose are critical to the prevention and treatment of breakouts in all their many forms, whether they are between your shoulder blades occur or along your T-zone. For this year's Healthy Beauty Awards we have asked a number of test subjects, many of whom were prone to fat and acne, to evaluate the best new creams cleansers, scrubs and even beauty creams for oily skin types (including a tiny red pencil by Dr. Dennis Gross and a remake of Origins' best selling night cream ).
As a guide to our selection process, a Panel of Dermatologists selected some useful ingredients for oily skin types, including peels such as alpha-hydroxy acids and salicylic acid, and recommended non-comedogenic (or non-pore-clogging) formulations to search. Each of our winning products contains a type of skin pacifier or an anti-acne ingredient like the ones mentioned above and has been given gold stars by our diligent testers. Here we present the best skincare products for oily skin types that can help you reduce breakouts to a minimum.
