Understanding the expressions of your skin is the first step towards sensible skincare. Overall, there are 4 skin types- dry, oily, normal and combination. No matter how you calibrate your skin assessment compass, your skin will still require some pampering, irrespective of the skin type. In this blog, we will dig deeper into the oily skin type, its characteristics, manifestations, and evaluate the best soaps for managing oily skin.

Oily skin can be a frustrating problem for many people, often leading to clogged pores, breakouts, whiteheads and extra shiny appearance. Choosing the right soap is an important step to managing oily skin, as using the wrong type of soap could further aggravate the condition.


In people with oily skin, Sebum, a natural oil that moisturizes the skin, is produced in excess by the overactive sebaceous glands. The extra oil may clog skin pores and cause acne and other problems in combination with debris, pollutants, and bacteria.

Hormonal changes, genetics, and certain medications cause oily skin. So does improper diet and certain skincare medications.

As facial skin is delicate it deserves to be treated with a lot of love and care.

A balanced skincare routine typically includes the following:

  • Cleansing: Use a gentle cleanser to remove dirt, makeup, and other impurities from the skin.
  • Toning: Use a toner to restore the skin’s natural pH balance and prepare the skin for further treatment.
  • Moisturizing: Use a moisturizer to hydrate and nourish the skin regularly.
  • Sun Protection: Apply a sunscreen with at least SPF 30 to protect the skin from sun damage.


Since cleansing is a crucial component of balanced skin care, it is important to choose a soap that clears off impurities from the body while still maintaining pH and oil balance of the skin.


Charcoal soap would be one of the best solutions for people with oily skin because Charcoal is an amorphous carbon in the form of highly porous microcrystalline graphite.
