What is the best over-the-counter body wash for oily skin and body acne?

What I Recommend: Neutrogena body clear body wash twice daily. After wash, alternate neutrogena body clear body spray with a 10% Alpha hydroxy acid moisturizer (acne.Org has a good one). Good hygiene is also important, so make sure you shower and change clothes right away after a work-out. The degree of body acne can vary, if its irritated or severe you may need to see a doctor for a more thorough evaluation. ...Read more

I have acne for almost 3 years now in my face and I have a oily skin which sometimes becomes sticky. What would be the best cure to get rid of this?

I have acne for almost 3 years now in my face and I have a oily skin which sometimes becomes sticky. What would be the best cure to get rid of this?

Scientific Rx: Being a teen is tough enough without acne, and I'm sorry you went through 3 years. I start with topical Clindamycin with either benzoyl peroxide or (if there are blackheads) a retinoic acid derivative. If results are not good in a month, add a systemic antibiotic that's right for you; a dermatologist has a less-pleasant rx that can abolish the oil and eliminate the acne. You deserve to look good. ...Read more

Does taking hot showers increase acne and oily skin on face? Is this known to worsen the issue? Are lukewarm showers better?

Possible: Hot showers are known to dry the skin and irritation. Dry skin leads to increased oil production to attempt to moisturize the skin. This process repeats itself daily and can lead to worsened acne. Give cooler showers a try, but keep in mind that it will take about 8 weeks to see most changes to your skin. ...Read more

I am struggling with oily skin, acne and hyper pigmentation and I am in my early twenties. Which line is best to use obagi or la roche posay?

Scientific Rx: If benzoyl peroxide has failed, get with your physician. The oral contraceptive pill may solve your problem if it is right for you. Otherwise, adding a topical such as Clindamycin is likely to fix things. The pigmented areas will fade with time & it's probably best to do nothing; use a sunscreen when you're out for a while. Best wishes. ...Read more

My daughter, 20, has acne and blemish all over her body, specially on her back and face. She has oily skin too. What is the possible treatment for it?

Several: First, wash with soap and water. Benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid creams can help. Sometimes topical or oral antibiotics are used. Some people find moderate sun exposure to be helpful as long as they are not on a medicine that makes them overly sensitive to the sun. In severe cases, sometimes, Azelaic Acid or oral retinoids are used. Daily exercise with copious sweating followed by shower helps. ...Read more

I have mild acne oily skin & I want 2 know that how should I take care of my face at night time? Should I moisturize after washing or only wash face?

Skin care routine: You need a good skin care routine to diminish sebaceous gland activity and acne disease as well as exfoliate. Too much benzoyl peroxide is not good either and may dry out the skin.
Use a mild facial wash such as cetaphil followed by a non-comedogenic moisturizer such as eucerin daily facial with spf as well as a possible topical retinoid and periodic exfoliation. See md rx accutane/antibiotics. ...Read more

I'm 21yrs old hv too oily skin n acne pimples al ovr my face. It gets worst in summer, please suggst me any gud cream n face wash plz.....

Scientific Rx: All acne can be managed nowadays. If you're female, the oral contraceptive pill could clear you if you can use it. Benzoyl peroxide is a good start, if you are not good in two weeks your physician may add a retinoic acid derivative and/or topical Clindamycin or something similar. If on the face only, a systemic antibiotic will probably not be necessary but could be in reserve. Good luck. ...Read more
