Oily skin makes a very good breeding ground for bacterial, viral and fungal infections. Therefore diseases like acne, allergies and infection are commonly found in people with this skin type. You need to avoid oil massage as your skin is naturally oily and there is no reason for you to supplement your scalp with external oil. In fact you should make sure that your hair is short and shampooed daily to wash any stagnating oil from the head. Face washes are too mild for oily skin; you may need an anti-bacterial soap for a thorough wash. Avoid fairness creams as they could clog pores. If your face needs moisturizing, opt for gel based moisturizers which also make your skin feel cool. Continue to use talcum powders liberally. Healing foods like nutritional yeast, wheat germ & black beans are good for oily skin.
