For the most part there was nothing that could be done. I did basic with a group of my friends a few years back and we were at the mercy of the schedule. When we found time we would wash real fast or even when going to the restroom you can use the toilet paper as a quick blotting paper. But other than that I was mildly broken out by the end of basic. Once it's done though you can get right back on your regimen and it's okay. Plus most of the people don't care about what you look like, they just want basic to be done as fast as possible. Your mind will be thinking at 100 mph so acne isn't even on your mind. Things might have changed since then, but I doubt it. (Talking about 6 years ago) Good Luck!

I figured there wasn't much to be done about it. I just hate the thought of having a miserably shiny/sticky face all day long for 8-9 weeks.

Have any of you oily skin folks ever gone through basic training? I'm considering joining the national guard, but am worried about not being able to "deal with" my oily/acne-prone skin while in basic. I have to blot constantly which would be difficult in that kind of environment, so I'm a bit worried.
Trust me when I say... when your in basic training, the LAST thing you will be worried about is how oily your skin is. Even if you do care, nobody else will. Besides, everyone will be so sweaty from running miles on end, everyone will have that oily appearance. If basic training is that important to you, you CAN'T let your oily skin get in the way with that. Best of luck to you bro.
