Why is my forehead so oily and shiny?

My nose used to be like that, but not anymore.

it's part of your T-zone, and the oiliness is probably hormonal, and wil probably go away when you get older. I got oiliness on my nose, especially to sides, but i haven't found anything that keeps it oil free yet instead of wiping it with my fingers every few hours.. lol

When I used to use hair gel, my forehead was really oily, then I stopped using it and it reduced probably...eh...50%? I dunno'. 'Cause my hair used to touch my forehead too, and I think the gel just touches your skin and makes it all nasty.

My forehead used to be broken out just like everywhere else, and it didn't really get oily unless I went a VERY long time without washing it. When I first start doing things many weeks ago, I used the Neutrogenia Oil-Free Acne Wash along with my BP, my forehead was never shiny, minimal oil but still had the same amount of acne. Once I switched the neutrogenia to the St. Ives Medicated Scrub, I noticed afterwards my forehead is shiny and gets oily before the next wash. HOWEVER, the acne is fading relatively quickly and the tone is evening out too. The rest of my face is minimally oily still, nor shiny, it's just my forehead, which seems to be clearing the fastest. Odd right?
You'd think more oil and shine would break you out more... but not for me, I'm always rubbing that oil off in the hours before my next wash, but its getting clearer and clearer.
I also had some skin colored bumps when I started that scrub, but those went away too. Seems my forehead may just be fine soon, but I still hate having that "just buffed and polished" look on it... Any advice?

My makeup now stays on great all day, with a continuous matte look. I used it every other day for about a week and now 1-2 times a week for maintenance.
You may also want to try the blotting sheets from Clean and Clear. Those work great also.
