    Oily skin

    My skin gets really oily over night, especially my forehead ("t-zone) and I think that's where the majority of my problems start.

    How can I reduce the oil build up, especially while I'm sleeping?

    Biore (or however u spell that brand) has oil wipes you can try. I think they help. They arent blotting sheets, but little clothes that have pepperment oil and some other stuff that supposedly helps block oil build up... theyre about 7.00 for one package

    Re: Oily skin

    Hi I just bought this book from barnes and noble called The Skin Type Solution by Dr Leslie Baumann after reading a post about it and I too have oily skin very oily and she recommendes products for your skin type. so I'll name a few cleaners you can use at night before you go to bed that you can buy at target, walgreens ect. Avenno clear complexion foaming cleaner,neutrogena oil-free acne wash, clean & clear continuous control acne wash and olay daily facials lathering cloths for combination/oily skin. Give these a shot and see how they work for you I also read on this board that milk of magnesia is good for oily skin. Also remember to never use any creams there not good for oily skin gels are alot better and lighter. write back to update us on which product worked best for you. right now I'm using the neutrogena oil-free acne wash and well I still have very oily skin I guess it just takes time I just got started using it.

    I put milk of magnesia on my face under my makeup sometimes and it really helps keep my skin from getting oily. You could try it at night time and see if it helps. It's really cheap too and you only need a little bit.

    Apple cider vinegar toner helps reduce oiliness. You can mix it with witchhazel.
