So, you've got an oily skin. Congratulations!

No we're not being sarcastic here--having an oily skin can really be a boon in the long term, as the excess sebum your skin produces can keep lines and wrinkles at bay. That said, having this type of skin also means that you're plagued with a perpetual sheen on your face that goes from natural glow to grime magnet in a matter of minutes.

What's worse--using a moisturiser makes your skin even more shiny and oily; which then compels you to skip this very essential product altogether.

Well, if you're guilty of the aforementioned crime, here's some news for you: moisturisers are essential to keep skin of all types hydrated and supple.  If you feel that moisturiser is making your oil glands go crazy and causing acne, then the problem is the product of your choice. And you need to make a switch, and opt for lightweight potions made specifically for your skin type.

Here, 4 moisturisers for oily skin type that promise to tame those sebaceous glands while delivering that much needed hydration.
