Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

If you have excess sebum then you can develop acne or seborrheic dermatitis,which can cause itching.

The best way to remove excess of sebum is steaming your face which not only open your closed pores but also reduce the chance of acne and other skin disease.

You should do frequent face wash with water and use alcohol and acetone free face wash twice.

Apply non-greasy moisturizing lotion.

Eat healthy diet with lots of fruits and salad. Also avoid oily and spicy food.

Take plenty of water daily which hydrate your skin and do regular exercise.
