Question Oily Skin

I am currently using Isotrex (before going to bed) which seems to be stopping breakouts and I use OC8 in the mornings after washing, I am finding after about 4/5 hours my skin is very oily again, should I wash my face as soon as it becomes oily? or wait until I go to bed? One other question is a Benzoyl peroxide wash any good for controlling oily skin?

try aloe vera gel. i have been using it for a week now and have seen a significant reduction in oil. it also moisturizes skin. made mine alot softer. and even gets rids of blotches. great stuff! i use the 99.7% gel by rite aid. maybe it will be better straight from the plant. who knows. use just a little bit. takes about 2 minutes to settle on the skin. hope this helps.
p.s. doesnt work straight away. give it a few days.
