Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

My face is oily, and I have some pimples on my face. I travel regularly from time to time. Kindly suggest a suitable face wash that I can use.


Welcome to icliniq.com.

We will pay close attention to your worries and address all your questions with utmost care.

The best face wash to use for oily and acne-prone skin is Salicylic acid and Glycolic acid (Ahaglow) advanced gel face wash. Use it twice daily. Apply a sufficient quantity on a damp face and massage in gentle circular motions for one minute and wash it off. Ensure that you avoid oily and fried foods, sweets, red meat, milk, and dairy products. Make sure to include more fruits, vegetables, and fiber, and drink at least three liters of water per day to maintain fresh and oil-free skin.

I hope this helps. Take care.

Thank you.
