Hi, been to the dermatologist my whole life. I've had extremely oily skin ever since I was 11. It has given me many problems with really bad acne. I'm a guy. and used to wear makeup to cover up all the acne scars. now i don't wear makeup. my skin is still oily but under control. I use clean and clear oil absorbing cream to keep the oil in control everytime i take a shower and make sure i get really deep with my fingers to get all the oil out. For my body i use the regular softsoap body wash (blue one) with one of those shower scrubbies. When the scrubbies don't feel like they're working that well grab a new one. I don't take a shower every day so that i don't build a tolerance to the clean and clear oil absorbing cleanser. i rinse my face off every 4 hours to get the excess oil out and let it air dry. once the water has dried i take my hands with every clean spot to get the layer of oil off that is left behind after it dries. at night i use clean and clear essentials deep cleaning astringent. (pink one with salilyic acid) I do that with a cotton ball to get all the dirt and oil off my face. Then when done i rinse my face off and let it air dry. This is so the clean and clear doesnt clog your pores when it dries. This also clears up acne scarring after a period of time. Once in awhile i'll get the blackheads or whiteheads out by popping them. I've also started eating fruit and maple oatmeals from mcdonalds and notice that i can wash my face farther times apart. And rinse your face off after every meal if it is oil based or greasy. If you stick to this method every day for people with extremely oily skin you can finally feel comfortable with yourself again.
