I believe I have one of the worst shiny faces so obviously I want to rid it.

So I use a blotting sheet and I'm shine free, exactly around 25 minutes I'm EXTREMELY shiny again, so you can see why I need help.

I use an anti-shine cleanser twice a day, I use blotting sheets 3 times a day and I've now started to exfoliate 3-4 times a week. Is there anything else I can do for my skin other than wait?

Thanks.

unfortunately Stocko, some of us are just blessed with overly oily skin.

The only thing that will really change that is probably Accutane. It shuts down the sebaceous glands.

I use powder and blotting sheets/napkins etc.

Try not to overwash though, that won't really help.

Okay Brandy I was thinking of Accutane, do I have to go to the doctors for that? I mean I've only had shiny face since I've been on the regimen so.....just wonderin if its linked.

Dan's clear skin regimen gel helps. Also, I use Neutrogena Rapid Clear Oil-Control Foaming Cleanser. I have oily skin and it keeps the shine at bay for about 4 hours.

Although sounding odd, I would recommend a Moisturiser. I suffered from terrible shiny skin and tried a moisturiser that was advised to me and it has really worked. I think it works because when you try to dry your face up the sebum glands in your pores (or whateva they're called) over produce oil to counter-act the dryness so when you hydrate the skin there is no need for them to work as hard..hence less shine. Try it anyway. Lee.

I have also combatted oily skin. I do not use Clean and Clear oil blotting sheets because they contain oil!

I have ventured far and wide for a good cleanser/toner/moisturizer and after many frustrating buys, I believe I have found the one:

There is no scientific evidence at all that sebaceous glands "work harder" in response to dry conditions or anything else. That's not their function. All they do is happily produce oil continuously all day long, based on certain hormonal influences which include (but aren't necessarily limited to) androgens and estrogens.
