    For over the counter, I use Neutrogena PureGlow Combination/Oily Skin. After I use this my face feels great! It is one of those daily Cleansing Cushions!! Look at the website I listed below! Also BeautiControl has an Acne skin care that I love... Hope this helps!! :)

    This is a really hard question to answer because what may work for one or hundreds of people may NOT work for you. The key is to find what works for YOUR body. I would not suggest trying a lot of different things at once to start because then if you do see results you will not know if it was just one product or a combination. First off I would suggest you drink at least 8 glasses of water daily and eat healthy. Also exercise. With a healthy body you can get rid of toxins better. Water also goes a long way in making your skin look better. Also allow at least 3 weeks of using a product before you determine how it works for you. Some acne/pimple can start weeks before it actually shows up on your face. Like I said just because one thing has worked for some many does not mean it will work for you. First i would try something cheaper and then if it does not work you can move on to more expensive things.

    I have very oily skin as well and I haven't found a cure yet, but I do know how to help control it. I wash my face 2x a day with Brevoxyl 4 wash. Throughout the day when I begin to get shiny I use Clean and Clear Oil Absorbing Sheets to wipe my face. Keep your hair washed, and DO NOT touch your face. Hope this helps

    If your skin is oily, you can apply tomatoes to your face. It counters oily skin by absorbing surplus oil and also helps get rid of pimples and acne. Apply undiluted tomato paste to your face and leave on for 15 minutes. Wash off with warm, not hot, water.

    Good luck babe xx

    mary kay cosmetics is the best! find a consultant; millions of women sell it. my mom and my sister both are consultants. first i wash my face with Mary Kay Creamy cleanser Formula 2, then i put purifying freshener formula 2 on a cotton swab and just apply it on your face, then i use balancing moisturizer formula 2 (its just like a lotion). i use all 3 in that order every morning and night and i have no acne.

    P.S. i have oily skin just like you and mary kay is the best for any type of skin including oily. hope you try it!

    everyone has beautiful skin, there are many steps about acne

    1st step is everyday always wash your face day/night

    2nd step is waterver makes you sweat wen u get home wash your face rite away

    3rd step is after you wash your face you put that cream that you bought and buy another cream its called "ZAP ZYT" and after you wash your face you pop your pimple and then you put the cream on the pimple you poped and the next day its better, but it takes time to heal so keep on putting the cream till the pimple is gone.
