Post Us oily skin people ...

How embarrasing! I have to pad down my face with Clean and Clear sheets every couple hrs and when Im at work all day, theres nothing worse than having to excuse myself every so often.

How embarrasing to be carrying around oil sheets. Even worse is that a pk of 50 only lasts me 10 days. $15 a month on sheets is not cheep.

if you wear makeup, you shouldnt. even though some makeups are oil free, i still find my face oily. show natural beauty and go without makeup. doing this helped me lose all that shine.
acne, the greatest battle ever fought

OC8 works OK, but for me when the oil does start comming through with OC8 ,it makes your face obvious that your wearing something ,cause they'll be real shiny spots ,then real dull.dry looking spots making your face look unnatural.
I don't even bother with wipes when I'm out in public and my face gets oily, I just take my tshirt or sleeve and wipe my face wherever I'm at.I could careless how stupid I look,lol,Although if your wearing makeup I can see how this would be a problem.You could always wear pink or tan shirts though to match your makeup,lol.

lol gee thanks. Using ure shirt is prolly the worst, cuz of all the dirt on it.

I just try to put as little makeup on as possible. Therefore when you hit the later stages ......10-12hrs, your makeup wont shine through.

Today I work 9 hrs so it will be a good test for the makeup. Wierd cause some days my makeup will only last me 10hrs before I have to wash it off, and just the other night I was able to go 15hrs and my face wasnt even oily.......wierd (I think excerising that one day had something to do with it) LOL

I agree with the other poster about not wearing makeup. I've tried every kind of makeup out there--mineral, oil free foundation, oil free powder, and they all make me oily.

I realized this only after I stopped wearing make-up, and my skin wasn't oily anymore. I don't really understand it, since I wear oil free; I guess it must make it harder for the pores to breathe. I might as well wear makeup with oil, lol.

I've just decided that if I'm going to wear makeup, I'll just have to deal with it.

May you have enough happiness to make you sweet, enough trials to keep you strong, enough sorrow to keep you human, and enough hope to keep you happy.
