Facial soaps that contain salicylic acid help with reducing oil production and tightening pores. Use an oil free moisturizer each night and day after facial cleansing. Cetaphil is a good face wash because it does not dry out the skin each time. Bar soaps are damaging to facial skin unless they contain a high moisturizer content. When you dry out your skin using a harsh facewash that can increase the oil on your skin. Look for facewash that foams or produces a lather. You also should not feel tight skin after 10 minutes when you wash your face. Otherwise, that suggests the soap is drying out your skin. Make Homemade Face Scrub is a VisiHow article that uses green tea which works as a natural toner. A toner can help with reducing oil production and the green tea one is all natural.

You will need a facewash. Without washing your face bacteria will increase causing acne and other issues. If you are not using a moisturizer after you wash your face then this could be the problem. Clean and Clear makes a great oil free face wash and moisturizer and it is available over the counter in drugstores and not super expensive like Proactive can tend to be. Use a toner, even one made at home with green tea or apple cider vinegar after you wash your face and before you apply moisturizer.

Natural treatments?

For diet foods high in glycemic carbs like white bread can produce oil so look for low glycemic foods as a substitute. A low carb diet may help reduce oil production if you eat more in a Vegan/Paleo manner. Swap your dairy products like milk for Almond Milk which can help reduce oil production. Eat more Omega 3 rich foods in the place of your standard meat diet. Walnuts and many fish are great sources of Omega 3.

As for oil production in the sun. You need to use a proper sunscreen because you are burning your face which will increase oil production as your skin tries to heal itself. The sunburn dries out your skin and your sebaceous glands go into hyper mode to repair and moisturize.

How to get rid of blackheads and oily skin?

Very oily skin, always get spots and have loads of blackheads on my chin, upper lip and some on my cheeks, also in between chest. Just wondering how to reduce this asap

Exfoliation is essential for fighting blackhead. You will also want to apply a facewash that minimizes pores as well as apply tea tree oil or use a body and facewash that contains it. Lime can be used as well if you can't use tea tree oil. Make an All Natural Cleanser Similar to Lush 'Dark Angels' Cleanser is a VisiHow article that shows you how to make one with charcoal which will tighten pores and reduce your blackheads. Avoid touching your face unless your hands have just been washed. This can cause bacteria to form on our face increasing blackheads. If you hold your cell phone close to your face when you talk this can transfer bacteria as well so clean your phone screen regularly with rubbing alcohol.

Can staying up too late be a cause of having an oily skin?

Because sometimes I sleep late. I have tried: I tried using face products and it works but I want a more natural way to prevent It.. I think it was caused by: The cause for my opinion is my daily playing of basketball and staying up to late

Was this helpful? Yes | No | I need help

Playing basketball is exercise which helps rather than harms. Increase your water intake because of your activity and try to get 8 hours of sleep a night. Poor diet and lack of sleep can cause increased oil production. Wiping your face as you play basketball can transfer and spread bacteria on your face so a face band may be worth wearing to keep the sweat from your hair pouring down your face.

I have an oily skin, which type of loofah or sponge should I use?

I have an oily skin which type of sponge should I use. I have tried: I have used several bar soaps like Dettol, Dudu osun, Pears, Mekako, Andcaroline. I think it was caused by: Exposure to sunlight, consuming too much of oil, rice

Was this helpful? Yes | No | I need help

Using a loofah or sponge can actually increase the oil production on your skin. Use the face scrub methods posted in VisiHow articles in the QnA section of this page instead of a loofah. You want to gently exfoliate your skin and not scrub vigorously. Use a facewash with tea tree oil or at least one that foams and not a bar soap.

My scalp is very oily, I don't know what to do?

I wash my hair every day. After one hour my scalp is so oily. I tried different shampoo but nothing is working. I am losing lots of hair. What can I do?

It is hard to believe but if you have oily scalp issues washing your hair everyday can make it worse. Skip washing your hair to every other day or every two days. In between use a dry shampoo or make one with cornstarch and either cinnamon of you have dark hair or paprika if you have shades of red or auburn. Dust at your roots using a makeup brush or blot using a tissue that you dip into in the powder. Brush your hair after applying and use sparingly. This will help with the oil. It will take a few weeks for your hair to stop producing oils when you stop washing everyday but your scalp will adjust and you will have less oil production.

How can I get rid of oily face, blackheads and pimples and prevent them from coming back?

My face is oily and I do have a blackhead and pimples. I already tried several products just to get rid of it but it seems that it is not working at all.

Get Rid of Blackheads is a VisiHow article with information you can use. Also, read the answers on this page as there are other ways mentioned to treat your blackheads. You may be using the wrong moisturizer and if you are not using a facial toner after you wash your face then start now because that will also help. A toner of green tea and lime should be considered to see if this helps. Only use a few drops of lime and test a patch on your face to make sure that it does not cause a reaction. If it does then just use the green tea.
