How to deal with oily skin?

I'm only oily on my nose and my chin, but I really wanna get it under control. what can I do? I always set my makeup with powder so i don't get oily but I don't always feel like wearing powder :(

Oily skin if stripped of natural oils will produce MORE oil! You need pH balanced facial cleansers to keep in check. Check out Aveda or any other reputable brands. Use daily & nightly. You also want to get pH bal make up, & lastly try not to touch your face. Hands clog pores & the cycle repeats... oil is secreted to try to protect pores from dirt & will just worsen the problem. Good luck & give your skin a week to get used to any new regimen!

Don't put a lot of makeup on, and wash your face a lot to get the oil off.

okay, I usually don't wear makeup because it damages my skin, and I prefer natural beauty better. I usually wear lotion, like nivea or olay....

Yea I just wear it cuz of the SPF and my cheeks are really red so I cancel out the redness

Okay then.. as long as you don't use it too often its okay to wear makeup. My friend always wears makeup and her face is so oily and has a lot of acne on it now.

I have the same issue. A good skin cleanser would work for you, like Noxzema. Or Neutrogena's Oil Control foaming Cleanser.
Also, use an oil-free mosturizer. I recommend you look for a foundation that's oil-free.

You can't get rid of oil permanently but it surely helps. Those oil absorbing sheets by clean & clear do wonders through out the day, especially in the summer.
