How do I reduce the amount of sebum that is secreted from the sebaceous glands? I find that the sebum oil smells on my face and a bit on my scalp

In brief: Wash frequently

The secretion from the glands will diminish with age.
At this stage you need to wash the affected parts with soap and water frequently, including your scalp.
