Re: Excessive oily skin

I would definitely recommend hitting up your local drug store first. They make special face washes and blotting sheets for oily skin, but be sure to try more than one brand. Just because one brand doesn't work for you doesn't mean that others won't.

But, assuming that you've already tried the typical over-the-counter solutions, you may want to see a dermatologist. They can prescribe medication that prevents oiliness. I used to be on prescription retinoids and they helped a lot.
