When your skin over-produces sebum, the pores get clogged, and the bacteria in the skin convert the triglycerides into free fatty acids and glycerol, which would irritate the skin. The free fatty acids will trigger your melanocytes and cause skin pigmentation. What you need in your skincare routine are products that will control sebum production, unclog your pores and control bacteria.
These products contain ingredients such as salicylic acid, niaciamide, azelaic acid, vitamin, and many more – all great for oily skin. You can choose from multiple brands include CeraVe, PAULA’S CHOICE, The Ordinary, Facetheory, and COSRX.
