Oily and greasy skin
I want to know why do I have so excessive oily and greasy skin? What should I do to control this oil from the face? I have a sensitive skin so don't do any beauty treatments except apply the creams that my dermatologist have given me but I have still not found the solution to my problem. There comes a layer of oil which is too embarrassing for me. Please help.
