Oily Skin Regimen

How many time should I wash my face? It gets oily every 2 hours. I wash it 3 times a day, but during night my skin produces TOO much oil and I get clogged pores ( even tho I dont wear makeup).

I've read that overwashing is not good for oily skin, cuz it makes ur skin to produce even more oil. So I guess 2-3 a day is enough. I wash my face 3 times a day:morning, as I get home after college and before sleeping. But it's still oily during the day.eusa_think.gif

Nope. How much oil (sebum) your skin makes has nothing to do with how much you wash it.

i wash my face 2 times a day. i use to wash my face 3 times a day since i also have oily skin but stopped. what products do u use on your face? what you can also maybe try is a mask every week to help absorb some of the oil.

Aztec Secret Indian Healing clay mixed with ACV once a week or two weeks, but I use peppermint soap now and it has helped a lot as well as Peppermint shampoo. I sometimes switch it out with a tea tree oil soap.

I've used tea tree oil soap before that works very well do that three times a day but lately I can't find that soap. My face is still oily I'm using a cheaper soap which is just a normal wash soap and its not helping me much.

I think you should try Defensesoap for this problem. *Moderator edit - No soliciting, read the board rules. You can share your information on the boards, so everyone benefits*

If you have a oily skin you need to wash it at lest twice a day. With oily skin or dry skin it is ok if we wash our face just one time, but for oily skin it can cause many skin prblems, e.g. Acne.
