To believe or not to believe

Aggressive cleansing doesn’t benefit any skin type, including oily skin. This is because when the protective shield of the epidermis is disrupted, the skin becomes more vulnerable to environmental damage and inflammation and precious moisture escapes. I have found that when a person with oily skin uses an appropriate cleanser, there is no harm in cleansing three times a day.

And no one, regardless of skin type, should use a cleanser that leaves a greasy film on the skin. It may give the barrier function a little boost, but it also attracts impurities and clogs the pores, so the disadvantages outweigh the benefits.
