I Have Very Oily Skin On My Face What Kind Of Face Wash Should I Use
Hi, I have got an oily skin and I can't get off the black heads from my nose. Is there anyway I can reduce the oilyness and the blackheads? Thanks
Blackheads: Don't scrub! It just injures the skin and increases the risk of infection. Your hormones are to blame for the only skin and I don't think you want to attempt changing that. A salicylic gel or base is probably the most helpful but apply sparingly at night, starting with a couple of times per week, increasing nightly. Use a very gentle cleanser specifically for the face (not for oily skin). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Spironolactone: See a dermatologist. Normal menst. Periods? Birth control? Pregnant? Meds, vitamins, supplements? Usually the antiandrogen spironolactone will work well. It is easy to take, usually no side effects, costs about 20 cents a day at 100mg a day. If this fails, Isotretinoin will clear you. It is not an easy treatment but will stop acne and oily skin. It is generally used for 5 months. ...Read more

I have oily skin how often should I exfoliate my face or wash it, normally exfoliate everyday i always get spots is this because of exfoliate too much?
Cleanse skin daily: First, use a daily cleanser. Since you are young and have oily skin, i would recommend something with either salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide (such as clearasil). After cleansing, exfoliation is often done with something with more grit that you can feel rubbing against your skin, similar to sand paper. Too much exfoliation can dry your skin so exfoliating every other day can prevent this. ...Read more
