  • I have oily skin too but I just embrace it because then I know I won’t get winkles as quick as someone with dry skin!
    If you’re self conscious about it just carry around those blotting pads and use them when needed.

  • Use products for oily skin and tone after cleansing.

  • Try a non greasy moisturiser and plenty of water. Its just the extra hormones your body is producing and hopefully it will settle down soon.

  • Buy a greasey skin cleanser, toner and moisturiser for start. Don’t cleanse lots, it increases the oil production

  • After you wash your face, but before you but a non oily moisturiser on, try wiping your face gently with some witch hazel. it’s like a toner, but helps control oily skin.

  • try and use light moisturising, cleanse but nothing to astringent as it will cleanse natural oils and just make skin oilier. I have found some of the Sukin products work really well for oily skin.

  • You can use anything Hun !! Proactiv is pretty good for oily skin. Good luck x

  • I have used the body shop before and it didn’t work.

  • head into The Body Shop :) if not maybe try some organic coconut oil! You can use that for everything :)

  • Try washing you face with ordinary soap

  • Although my skin is sensitive & now often dry, when I was pregnant and breastfeeding my skin was all over the shop. I ended up using Cetaphil body wash, it’s fragrance free which was great.

  • Drink more water, eat more vegetables and less processed food, and change your moisturiser to one suited to oily skin.

  • I used a body shop cleansing product. Its a seaweed one and it reduced the oil in my face a great deal.
