I have a very oily skin and I really hate it. I notice that even after I wash my face, it will become oily again after, like, 2 minutes.What should I do because when I put my make-up on after a few minutes it will blend with the oil in my face and it doesn't look good. Help!

You should use skin care products for oily skin, to make it better. I recommend Neutrogena's line for oily skin, it is great and not super expensive either, so it's really nice and well worth what you have to pay for it.

Hi I have oily skin. But now the problem is almost nil all this because of the face wash i use. Its called oil control face wash from clean and clear.The problem is reduced with in 2 weeks. And the acne also reduced.

Hi, I am a sharer in your troubles since I am 'blessed' with super oily skin too. I have had a hard time struggling with different brands which never seemed to reduce the oil secretion. I have finally stopped at a product range (Fab India) which has a face wash and a toner, both with tea tree oil. After using these twice daily I have experienced a lot of change in my skin. My oil secretion as reduced. Since this brand may not be available in your country, I would recommend choosing a face cleanser and a toner containing tea tree oil as it helps in regulating sebum and controlling excessive oil. Also, keep some facial wipes handy to dab on the oily areas and remove the shine. Really the shine is too irritating. I have had bad times with makeup. For that I have gone over to Oriflame's matte foundation and it seems to work for me alright and keeps the oil in check.
