  • Try a no-shine face wash. They have tons at Walgreens, CVS, etc. that are specifically for oily skin. Also those Clear and Clear Oil blotting papers work GREAT! I have combination skin and use them throughout the day when my face feels oily...and it takes the oil RIGHT OFF and won't ruin your makeup!

  • Go to the dermetologists? Or for a touch up through out the day, Arbonne ( sells a compact that is like powder you just dab it on and takes the shine away, also mary Kay ( sells some sort of sheets to dab on your face which also helps. Good luck.

  • stay away from greasy food, don't wash your face more than once a day, but if your taking shower, don't do it after that!!! Eat a square of chocolate, have a glass of wine. That worked for me. Good luck. And laying off the facial make up helped too.
