I have oily skin but I also have dry skin around my mouth because of Retin-A, so my doc suggested using a cleanser just once a day. When you wash your face with a cleanser, you strip it of the natural oils and in my case the skin tightens and dries up (but still gets oily throughout the day). It is better, in my case, to wash my face only at night. That way my skin is not so tight. And it is working just fine. The goal of washing the face is not to strip it of necessary oils, it is to remove dirt that is encountered throughout the day. Unfortunately, every time you wash your face you are stripping it of the oils as well.
