Noxzima - Great for dry oily skin. Also helps with sun burns.
Try a product called Noxzima. It works really good. You apply to your face 2-3 times a day. It helps control oil and other face problems. It has a strong smell but a clean smell. It also leaves your face feeling clean. It can also be used when you have a sun burn.

There's a lot product that are available in the market like ponds oli control sheet that when you wipe your face it is like a powder that can wip the oil on your face. But for me maybe I would sugest to you that avoid eating to much fatty food like peanuts and chocolates.

I have this problem, too. Perhaps you can try to use the oil control film. It really works. Besides, try to use the lotion or cream which can provide much water for your face.

Firstly, I wouldn't recommend washing it too much - this will strip your skin of natural oils, so that it will begin to produce even more. What you want to do is buy a good shine control moisturiser - I recommend Biore Shine Control Moisturiser, it's available from most good pharmacies or cosmetic stores. Try http://www.boots.com, if they deliver to your country.

hmm..use an oil blotter paper to remove excess oil. Keep your face free from hair as your face could get oilier due to the grease on the hair. Always use oil-free products, drink lots of water, eat lots of healthy food and not forgetting plenty of fruits and vege! :)

I am like you before but now no more. I drink a lot of water. and have my facial treatment regularly. Oily face is more prone to pimples because the dirt sticks in the face because of oil. I wash my face with calamansi and milk. I think its better if you will see a dermatologist so they can give you the right remedy.

try cetaphil cleanser for oily skin. it really works. and dont wash your face too much. twice a day is enough. washing it often only makes it produce more oil. use oil blotters too to control shine and reduce oiliness

I use Biore Shine Control Cream Cleanser. I find it works quite well for controlling oil on my face. They have whole lin of Shine Control skin care products. Maybe those would help you too.
