I think oilskin is the best type skin in all skin types. You don't bother about it. Just wash your face for many times that means 7 or 8 times a day. The fore most thing is drink lots of water as you can it will be more helpful.

Okie. I think it was best to use some face tissue paper to clean the oil. By using these, you don't need to go to toilet to wash your face. But it will your make-up too. Apply the foundation cream more to get rid of this. And better to consult a beautician or skin specialist, it oily skin annoying you. Thank you.

i also have oily skin. i neer used to but since i started working in a factory it has become a problem. during the day i use blotting paper which soaks up the oil. on a night i use a balancing moituriser which is oil free. when i choose my foundation i go for a matte finish instead of a natural finish. this will help combat shine. hope this helps. happy mylotting

there's a lot of innacuracies here. the size of the pores doesn't influence how much oil is produced, and washing repeatedly will overstimulates the oil glands, and makes them produce more oil to replace that you're washing away. use a gentle cleanser, containing something astringent, like tea tree oil or witch hazel water, and then moisturise, using a patting motion, rather than a rubbing motion. to avoid stimulating the glands. other oils to look out for in cleansers are lavender and juniper, as both balance oil production

I also have the same problem. And I'm a guy. It is easy for the ladies to hide oiliness with powder, but how about us guys who suffer the same problem? How will we handle it like a man?

It comes from how large your pores are. You may have larger pores.. Try using an oil cream based substance that attacks excessive oily skin. As far as the name brand is concerned, you will have to decide what brand suits you to meet your needs..
