I have very oily skin, i can wash my face with oil clearing washes and within a couple of hours i look like I’ve ran a marathon! Nothing seems to stop the excess oil.

  • Use tea tree oil and face wash

  • You should own your oily skin! It ages so much better and eventually your skin will start to lose its moisture and it won’t be the same.
    I know it may seem like a curse but it really isn’t.
    Perhaps maybe go and get some facials and they can provide done product advice on how to harness it?

  • You may even be able to get samples to try on your skin.

  • If it makes you feel at all better oily skin ages better but best advice is get specify products for your skin.

  • I got advice from my GP for a wash for my skin type and then extra advice from my local chemist. They can give you advice and support and see your skin type. Might be worth a try?

  • Do you moisturise?? it may sound counter productive but sometimes your skin needs moisture so it produces more to compensate so perhaps a good moisturiser. i also read somewhere that you should wash your face 2, i do this and it has done wonders for my oily skin !
