I am a 15 yr old guy from Chandigarh. I have been recently experiencing bad oily skin. I don’t know why but it may be due to monsoon I guess. I don’t use any powders or creams as I don’t like to use them. But now as soon as I reach my school from house my face is becoming dark and oily. Can you suggest me a good men face wash for oily skin type which is available in India?. Also let me know whether I can use any cream to control oiliness.
