How do you cure oily skin?

Asked by Chey97 (59points) May 28th, 2014

I have moderate acne and I use a mask every night and morning. After I rinse the mask off, my skin feels so soft, but not even five minutes later it’s so oily its discusting.

Welcome to Fluther.
Have you ever gone to a dermatologist? I think you should see one to help you determine your skin’s needs and the doctor will give you medications to help clear your acne.

OK. Thank you.

When I was younger I always used a toner with salicylic acid. I liked the one by Mary Kay but any one will do. Now that I’m older I use one with glycolic acid.
I like to say that I am now rewarded for the torture I went through with acne in my youth by having no wrinkles in my fifties.

@Chey97 I use a buf-puf and nuetregenea soap and I’m 52. Good thing, it keeps your skin really young.

Thank you. And i will talk to my mom about a dermatoligist. She’s been wasn’t me to go to one for about 3 years now.

May be it’s the mask that’s giving out the oil. Depends on the things present in it.
I have moderate oily skin. I had the same problem like you for a while in my teens, can’t tell the exact reason but I believe it’s changing hormones. Consult a dermatologist !

I suggest you stop using face masks.
You could look at Melaleuca they may have something to help you.

Try organic products, they dont contain chemicals that often irritate oily skin. Good luck
