With a wide array of skincare products today, one might think it’s easy to find something effective to improve the quality of the skin. However, if your skin is prone to various problems such as acne and blemishes or oiliness, then you have probably realized how difficult it is to deal with these problems.

Unfortunately, I’ve never had picture-perfect skin even thought I always wanted that. Although oily skin, acne and blemishes might not seem like huge problems to other people, they’re quite frustrating to us who have to deal with them constantly. You don’t know what products to use because they just make your skin shinier. Also, with shine, there also come acne breakouts and it’s needless to mention how skin looks utterly lifeless.

I have spent almost my entire life fighting with oily skin i.e. trying to find suitable solution. I have had oily skin since my teenage years. However, puberty and teenage years are usually characterized by greasy skin and acne. You don’t really expect to fight with it your entire life, at least, that’s what adults usually tell you when you start complaining. FULL POST
