It is important to cleanse your face twice or thrice daily to rid it of all the accumulated dirt and oil build-up which leads to clogged pores, acne etc. Gel-based or foaming cleansers is the best of the tips for oily skin. Look for cleansers/face washes that are oil-free. Medicated soaps are also useful for cleansing oily skin.
