Exfoliation: Try a skin care product with a natural exfoliant. That will help remove any dirt or oil that may be causing breakous. You can also try benzoyl peroxide before bed.

A female asked:

My face is so oily is there a reason for this or is it just my skin type and how can I help it?

Genetic: Always use a gentle cleanser since harsh soaps can trigger the skin to increase oil production, if a basic facial cleanser doesn’t cut oiliness, try a product that includes an acid such as benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid, glycolic acid, or beta-hydroxy acid, make sure to wash with warm water, not hot, because temperature extremes can irritate skin.Let me know if this doesn't work :].

Neat and clean with: a pleasant disposition is the way to go. That will bring more light to our world than a lighter face. Please don't measure your self-worth by skin color. One day your opinion may reverse and you may want to darken your face. I respect the fact that you are a young and health male and want to look attractive but who you are and what you do is the real attraction. Peace and good health.
