I have bad acne - should I refrain from using oil blotting sheets?

Will removing oil in this way just make my skin produce more oil?

  • That would be extremely unlikely. You're just blotting off the excess oil that's visible, you're not hurting the skin's mantle or even removing all the oil from the skin's surface.

  • no, blotting doesn't do that, washing your face too often with harsh detergents does. Try a dermatologist if you can.
