I just answered this to someone else that has oily skin and I think it could help you too! :)

I use neutrogena oil free acne wash (it’s like a clear orange-y color) and then I put neutrogena on the spot acne treatment where ever I need it. I have oily skin too and this really helps me a lot. You should also apply a face moistruzier bc even though you have oily skin, you can still get dried out. Try eucerin everyday protection; It kind of sits on top of your face and makes it white so I only use it at night but it makes your skin really soft. Do the two neutrogena products in the morning and the eucerin at night and you should see a big difference in your skin :)

*You skin might get really dry at first but keep doing this bc your skin will get use to it after a few days to maybe a week and a half. It reallys works, trust me!

Also, try an oatmeal mask once a week or every two weeks; It gets rid of dead skin cells and it is really good for oily skin. Mix some warm water with some oatmeal (I do about 1/2 water 1/2 oatmeal) and apply it to your face. Let it sit for about 20 mins and then rinse it off. Your skin will feel really good after. I really hope this helps :)

Susan asks…

What is the best acne cleanser for mildly oily skin?

My skin is in between severly oily and normal, but I have a problem with small whiteheads appearing if I sweat alot or if I do not scrub my face well. I am wondering what the best acne treatment is for this condition.

admin answers:

St. Ives apricot scrub is good and it’s not expensive. So is clearasil. They have different grades of cleansers so that you can choose which is right for you.
If you want to go a little more expensive, then neutrogena carries some really good cleansers.
Older cleansers are noxema, and it’s still around and it still is a good one. Dove soap is also good. Keeps your skin in balance.
Hope this helps

How to get rid of oily skin?

I have acne and very oily skin, I was just wondering if anyone knew any way to get rid of it temporarily or permanently, I know it’s hormones and all, but I would just love a way to get rid of it! Boy’s don’t really go for the oily skin acne girls..
I have AcneFree and moistures and stuff, but nothing seems to work! I also drink a lot of water!

I used to breakout in acne due to oily skin and have eczema myself. Genetic, Stress and Bacteria can affect hormones and can theoretically promote acne. Here are some home remedies that can help but do not mix them together. You want to make sure you exfoliate your face every other day. Before putting any application on face for acne rinse with cool water then pad dry.

1) Tea Tree Oil- An essential oil is diluted and applied topically to acne lesions.
2) Lemon oil or juice – Applied lemon juice or apple cider vinegar to face or you can drink it through using it in water a few drops a day. You can leave overnight don’t expose yourself to sunlight. Will help with both acne, and scars as well.
3) Mandarin oil
4) Cedar wood – good for eczema, psoriasis
5) Lavender
6) Apple cider vinegar
7) Bamboo extract or Sarna lotion – good for rosacea, psoriasis, eczema 8) Bio Oil or BB cream for dark spots or scars
9) Mederma good for stretch marks and scars
10) Nadinola fades dark spots for a more even skin tone
11) Toothpaste is very effective for acne leave on face for about 20 to 30 minutes then wash. Leave on to long will leave a scar.
12) Zinc really works on acne
13) 2% Erythromycin
14) Benzoin Peroxide
15) Hydrogen Peroxide 3% – It can help to dry out acne by killing bacteria on the skin. Soak a cotton ball in hydrogen peroxide and apply it either to the acne breakouts on your face. You also may opt to apply hydrogen peroxide to your entire face to help prevent future breakouts. Allow the hydrogen peroxide to do its job — wait until the bubbling stops in approximately a minute or two. Rinse your face with water. Apply an oil-free moisturizer to prevent skin from drying out.
16) Vitamin B3- also known as niacin. It promotes healthy skin, can be utilized as an acne treatment.
17) Retinoid- increase collagen production and plump fine lines, making it a good choice if you’re dealing with acne and wrinkles.
18) Sulfur- dries up pimples and keeps sebum production in check, helping to prevent future blemishes. Sulfur has a distinct smell think rotten eggs.
19) Coconut oil good for acne and scars.
21) Turmeric powder is also good for acne.
22) Neutrogena products
23) Brown Listerine also sucks the life of your acne wash after about 15 minutes.
24) Witch Hazel & Rubbing Alcohol both are good for acne
25) Aloe Vera either from the plant itself or gel apply on the infected area.
26) Neem oil-good for acne, psoriasis, eczema, skin ulcers (taken either orally in capsule or externally in oil)

This is something I use every day and I got rid of my cystic acne and my eczema. I really recommend this. Neem oil: It is powerful antiviral and antibacterial properties, beneficial to those who suffer from various skin conditions like acne, psoriasis, eczema, skin ulcers, helps one treat hair related problems like dandruff and itchy scalp. Dental care products like toothpaste, mouth washes and rinses all use the neem oil’s antiseptic properties to keep teeth health and gums free of infection. Other benefits also include its use in household items like mosquito repellents, disinfectants and personal hygiene products. If you like you can purchase at or in health food stores. It is the same price as some of the acne medications, either prescribe or over-the-counter.
