Brief Answer:
Salicylic acid based face washes reduces oil secretions

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Welcome and thanks for posting your query to the forum.

For oily skin persons we recommend salicylic acid based face washes. These salicylic acid based face washes reduces the oil secretions by constricting the oil glands especially in humid or rainy season. For the same I recommend Saslic face wash ( cipla pharmaceutical ).

One should remember to not to use these face washes during winter season when season is already dry.

I hope this helps.

With regards,
