When you have oily skin, you may wonder if you can actually use a facial serum. The answer? Absolutely.

Face serums are not only exclusive to those with dry skin. In fact, facial serums can actually rebalance oily and acne-prone skin (if you get ones with the right ingredients in them). Some even find that swapping out their heavier face products with a hydrating serum is the way to go; honestly, you can keep oily skin at bay.

With most skin care products, it’s important to find the right formula and ingredients for your particular skin needs. Since many serums are packed with higher concentrations of key ingredients, you can find one that hydrates and reduces naturally occurring sebum (a fancy word for the oil on your face).

There are a lot of face serums out on the market that are extremely costly. However, there are two in particular that are less than $20 and get the job done just as well!
