  • St. Ives face wash works or use Neutrogena face pads. They work well and absorb oil quickly

  • Witch hazel should be in the drugstore near the alcohol and hydrogen peroxide.........facial cleanser area

  • Don't go crazy.  Your oily skin is the best wrinkle defense there is and you will appreciate it when you're older.  People are amazed when I tell them my age because thanks to my oily skin, I look 10 years younger.

  • witch hazel on cotton balls is AWESOME. also, get little face-papers / rice papers from the body shop or bath n body works, they absorb oil when you press thenm on your face. OR you can do the same with folded tissues during the day/. use powder but not foundation of course. USE SALICYLIC ACID facial stuff , it stps acne sooo good slaicylic acid in like blackhead scrub or othe rproducts just look in drugstore. retinA is also good for a moisturizer when it is included in a lotion. dont worry use powder during the day

  • Witch hazel is a good astringent. Just make sure to follow with a good quality moisturizer that is petroleum free.
    Acne products are a vicious cycle. They dry out your skin to the point that your body overproduces oil which leads to clogged pores & more acne. So even though you have oily skin, you need to moisturize after cleansing to break the cycle.
