    The cleanser is to remove makeup and face wash to actually clean your skin. If you're not using makeup, you can skip the cleanser unless you're using a heavy spf.

    Umm no I'm not using makeup .. But why is it advised to cleanse before applying exfoliating .. All I am doing is just wash my face and then exfoliate...

    It is advised to cleanse, then use face wash because face wash alone is not designed to remove makeup. Cleanser is typically an oil, balm, or cream that can more effectively break up makeup and can also help wash away the oil on your skin. Although a face wash can also be effective in getting excess oil off your skin, it cannot remove makeup well.

    What you are already doing is absolutely fine. Just make sure you aren't exfoliating more than once or twice a week.

    Cleanse, tone, moisturise is generally the set pattern

    Cleansers are basically a type of face wash, they're just better at removing oil and dirt

    I have oily skin too and I just use face wash and a moisturizer after. Make sure they are both oil-free.
