I had the same problems since a few months ago.

I haven't used anything for a year as well, haven't had any problems, and barely even rinsed my skin - but all of a sudden I went oily and dry at the same time, had a big breakout but the skin was more of a problem.

Guess it's the harsh australian climate, anyway on we go.

Your skin is dry, but it also produces oil to compensate for it, and guess what ? it doesn't help at all and you're left with bad skin condition.

What I do is first wash my face from some of the oil and clean it, and then apply a moisturizer to reduce the flakiness after the shower. (before the body produces oil again)

It might seem weird to apply a moisturizer on an oily skin such as mine, but if I don't it will turn red and have a lot of flakiness.

I use cetaphyl gentle cleanser, and also cetaphyl as a moisturizer.

You seem to have been around since 05' so you probably know the whole dingo, I don't use BP because I don't need it.
