Oily Face

Does anyone else have a problem with this? I mean excessively oily around the nose and in the middle of my lower forehead....I haven't changed anything, not soap or moisturizer or makeup or shampoo or my diet or anything...but lately (for the last couple months) its horrible!!! I am talking tons of oil, I could blot with a tissue every hour or so and its very visible and its making my pores huge!! My glasses are sliding down my nose! lol The weather here isn't any different than its been every other year and I never noticed this before, so I don't think thats causing it, I'm sure it's prolly hormonal. Any ideas how I can combat this? Toner after I scrub doesn't seem to make a difference. I know its not earthshaking or anything remotely serious, but its bugging the heck outta me. Ideas?

Re: Oily Face

I have the same problem on my nose and forehead. My eyelids above my eye and below are oily too. My eye makeup and eyeliner disappear so quickly. I do not know what is causing this because I have had this for several years. I just hope that it is keeping my skin moisturized longer so I get fewer wrinkles!!

Re: Oily Face

Belle...what a good way to look at it!!! My eyes are oiler too and along with that I now get zits!!! Never had many as a teen, so this must be natures way of me getting my quota!!! Not a terrible amount of them, but gimme a break, I'm 48 years old!!! AAARRRGGGHHH!!! lol I also figure I'm saving money on that "reflective" lotion and makeup thats spoz to make you look fresher and younger...heck my oil reflects enough!!! lol
