It's common to link oily skin to acne. After all, excess oil is a known contributor to breakouts. But dry skin types can still experience acne for a number of reasons, whether it's due to environmental factors or a poor skin care routine that irritates the skin and clogs pores.

We suggest going easy on skin and using effective gentle products that provide a deep clean without harming your skin.
