Avatar m tn Hello, In oily skin, the oil producing sebaceous glands are overactive and produce more oil than is needed. The oil oozes and gives the skin a greasy shine. It can be caused by heredity, diet, hormone levels, pregnancy, birth control pills and hot and humid weather. Oily skin needs special cleansing with plenty of hot water and soap to prevent the pores from being clogged. Avoid harsh products that strip your skin of oil and encourage flakiness.
Avatar f tn Has anyone else's skin been extremely oily since getting pregnant? I wash my face in the morning and night with ckean n clear for sensitive skin and also use cera ve lotion. Im constantly going through those oil absorbing sheets. I cant seem to get it under control!
Avatar m tn Hello, I'm a 33 year old man, who has suffered from oily skin on my face since my teen years. I've tried many different cleansers. None of which seem to help. The more harsh cleansers obviously irritate my skin causing more redness and oil production. And the gentle cleansers such as cetaphil don't seem to improve anything. I was prescribed Atralin gel a few months ago. But this does not seem to improve my oil production.
Avatar f tn All you need is to exfoliate (scrub in small circles gently all over your face) in the shower with warm water and a wash rag and always remember to moisturize your skin afterwards! I swear it helped me ALOT. I very occasionally get a pimple and if I do it heals very quickly with this method.

Avatar m tn Hello, For oily skin, wash your face 3-4 times a day with a mild cleanser like Cetaphil. Pat it dry. Then apply a good hypoallergenic non perfumed and light moisturizer over the area. Try to use powder based makeups rather than cream based makeups and wash your face with fresh water whenever you see excess oil buildup. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.

Avatar f tn For the last month I have had really oily skin on my face, neck, chest and back... regardless of whether I am pms-ing, on my period or in between periods. It is causing break outs like I had back in high school which was 10+ years ago! Does anyone have a suggestion of a product I can use or something I should be eating/drinking to help ths go away??
Avatar f tn Usually a product will start to work but my acne never fully clears and I suppose my skin becomes immune to it because I just go back to normal within about a month. My skin is always very oily, especially my forehead, even after I use products meant to prevent oil... What do I do? By the way, I have very oily hair (bangs always on forehead) recently as well, if that makes a dIfference.

Avatar f tn My dermatologist gave me a special cleanser to use 3 times a week, and he said I should otherwise use just water and try to do as little as possible with my skin. Problem is that I have probably the worst skin type ever, it's either really oily or super dry and flaky. When I wake up in the morning my face is covered in a thin layer of oil, so of course I need to wash it before putting on make-up. But after washing it it's all dry, so I need just a bit of lotion to moisturize.
926790 tn?1244063910 ) Ever since I could remember, I've had an issue with oily skin. More so in my face, then anywhere else. If I take a shower on Friday, my face will start to oil up the next day, or maybe if I'm lucky; Sunday. This issue leaves my face with a glossy look, and is disgusting to the touch, for lack of a better term. I've tried many facial exfoliates. Nothing. I still have the same results as if I never used a product to begin with. I've gotten past my acne stage.
Avatar n tn Hi, Oily skin may be inherited and affected by hormones, stress and wrong cosmetics. There is no specific treatment for oily skin but here are some home remedies that may help with your problem. Wash your face with warm water and plenty of drying soap. You don't have to buy the expensive type. Make sure you use plenty of the soap and scrub the skin. Clay masks or mud masks may also help temporarily. Masks can cleanse the skin of surface greasiness.
Avatar n tn If your body produces more androgens that it needs you will have oily skin. Bacteria on the skin feeds off this excess oil, clogging the pores and resulting in acne. One month is not a very long time to take antibiotics for acne. They may need to be taken for at least 8-12 weeks or longer. Differin is designed to be used every night, unless your skin is particularly sensitive. Cleansing alone will not heal acne, and switching between face washes will not be harmful. Eloise.
Avatar f tn I need help, does anyone know of any products I can use that will help me with a combination of dry and oily skin? I usually wash my face with a mild soap twice a day, then moisturize but that doesnt help at all. My skin is always dry and flaky, but very oily on my nose, chin and forehead, and also I get an occasional breakout. I've tried using face lotions that dont contain any oil but they doesn't seem to do the job...advice anyone??
Avatar n tn I changed my make up to channel…but since a week every time I wake up in the morning I feel that my skin is oily Please help
Avatar n tn This will help retain moisture in the skin. And also not spread dead skin cells across you which my plug a pore. 10. I clean my bed sheets, blankets, and pillow case once a week. In addition to that, I only wear clean clothes when it's bedtime, and I shower before bed, so I am clean before I go into my bed. 11. I have been drinking my 8 glasses of water a day. 12. I wear 3 shirts a day...
Avatar m tn Hello, For tackling excessive oily skin, frequently wash your face with fresh water and sometimes by mild cleansers like Cetaphil ; throughout the day. You can also use mild astringents which can be used to remove the root cause of excessive oil production on our face. They are effective and skin friendly. Avoid using alcohol-based astringents, which can cause enough dryness to your looks hence it will stimulate more growth of sebum.
Avatar n tn Hey Everyone, Well I have Acne on my Face (I am a Teen) but I am trying to find something that may help me fight it. I have tried Proactiv and other types of Acne Medication, but I think I may know what is not helping… A few hours into the day, around 11am, my forehead (where the majority of my Acne is) begins to be very oily… I think if I was to able to keep the oil from my forehead throughout the day, this would reduce my acne.
Avatar m tn I have been struggling with oily skin since I started middle school. Since I have gotten older my skin has gotten worse with the oil. even after i was my face i can see the oil surfacing from the pores on my nose. I really hate having to go places and people asking me why my nose is so shiny. Is there any face washes or makeup brands that help cover, eliminate or even benefit oily skin?? PLEASE HELP !!!
Avatar n tn I am a 46 year old female and I recently noticed that my hair had become extremely oily but not all over my head. After vigorous shampooing, even with a clarifying shampoo, my hair is still oily immediately after drying, What can cause my hair to be oily immediatly after shampooing? It just won't come clean.
