I have oily skin and I don't like it. Please tell me how to protect my skin from oil.

Spanish Girl, you gave some really great advice about fruits and vegetables, exercise and facial cleansing but I have to tell you that you made me giggle about steering clear of garlic and curries because those are fairly standard for Indian dishes ;-)
My skin is oily and I have lots of pimples. What can I do?
Also, my neice has oily skin and she uses witch hazel as a daily astringent to keep the oil down. If she ever feels a pimple comin on, she'll use the silver biotic.
I have a oily skin and I have acne scars on my face. Please help me out as am going to be engaged in a month or so. I also have a sensitive skin so i just want homemade recipes. Please answer me in detail about a whole day care for it and also how much required for applying for my skin type. Will be anxiously waiting.
I have a oily skin. I want to be beautiful and have normal skin. Can someone advise me on some tips for remedies that I can do at home?
My face has always been oily. When I was pregnant, it got so bad that it would literally drip oil off my chin! The best thing I found was to wipe my face with a cotton ball soaked in isopropyl alcohol. In my 20s, during the summer & when I was pregnant, I wiped it several times a day.
From my 30's on, I only did it a couple of times a day. My bedtime routine is to use a water dampened wash cloth with just a bit of alcohol on it, to wipe my face down-you'd be amazed at the dirt that comes off!
Oily skin is a pain, but it will keep you looking younger as you age & it does get better. I can tell you by experience, you don't want dry skin! I had 2 surgeries in 2 months & the anesthesia gave me dry skin & hair for a couple of months & it was torture-very uncomfortable!
I am just 15 years old, but my face is full of pimples and my skin is oily. Please suggest something to get rid of the pimples and oily skin.
When I was young there was this girl that had literally beautiful skin. Of course everyone with acne and pimples asked her what she used and she said the doctor told her to wash her face 3 times a day, for 3 minutes each time with soap, and rinse thoroughly for 3 minutes. My grandson has developed acne, not the worse case, but bad for a teenage person wanting to look their best. So I told him what the Dr. had told this young woman and he has tried it and it is clearing his face up. It has now been about two weeks and you can barely see any bumps at all.
Help please! My skin is oily with blackheads (my nose, cheeks, chin mostly have it). What is a budget friendly cleanser that works great for this? I'm hoping to pay for a cleanser that is $10 or less because I'm a very tight on money.
Noxema skin care cream. It will make the problem worse for a bit as it draws out all the old yucky stuff in your skin, but stick with it. It will work!
I have really oily skin and all related problems like opened pores and pimples. No matter how many times I wash my face I can't keep it from being oily. I don't put on makeup very much. I want to use some homemade remedies if possible. Can you suggest any?

This is a lot cheaper than regular acne pads, and not as harsh on the skin. Then at night, you can apply Cetaphil lotion (or comparable store brand) to face, or just to any areas that seem to be getting too dry, such as around eyes, lips, and neck. It won't cure it, but will help some, and all of these are fairly inexpensive, if you get the store brands. And please never squeeze pimples, this can lead to tunneling under the skin, and spread of a bad infection. My mother also used to put a few drops of witch hazel on a plain adult aspirin, wait for it to melt, then dab that on the pimples at bedtime. (04/26/2009)
Its just 1/2 c. ground oatmeal which I did in my blender, 1/4 c. water, and 1 tsp honey. Gentle, cheap and works. (05/15/2009)
I have very oily and acne prone skin, lately I have been more towards using natural products. I haven't found anything that's really worked. Please post recipes for toners, face washes, and/or masks that work or have worked for you.
I also get very bad acne on my back. How do you even get rid of that? Your help is very much appreciated. Thanks.

For a good toner, kffrmw88 has it down! Use cider vinegar with cotton balls. Good luck. This is just what worked for me. I still get zits at "that time of month", but nothing like I used to, and they don't last like they used to either.
My daughter says to use Crest regular toothpaste on pimples. Leave it on until it dries then wash it off. She swears it helps get rid of them. (09/22/2009)
You can also try other methods of detox, such as zeolite, foot treatments, etc. Check out earthclinic.com for more suggestions from all over the world. Don't just blame your skin. It may be trying to tell you something. Good luck! (09/22/2009)

I put a bottle of old aspirins in my blender with some vinegar and water and whizzed them. I poured the solution into an empty bottle. I shake it up, pour some into my hand or a washcloth and massage it onto my face. I allow it to dry, then rinse my face as usual. Aspirins are salicylic acid, just like most face cleaners contain.
Vinegar restores your skin's normal pH. And the graininess acts as an exfoliate. It seems to reach down into the pores, cut my oiliness dramatically, and really cleanse my skin. My pores aren't as large as they usually are, and I've not had as many breakouts. I follow with my Proactive regimen. I plan to continue using this since aspirin and vinegar are so cheap. Just have to be careful not to get any in your eyes. (09/23/2009)
I want to get rid of oily skin and pimples. My face looks dull. I want my face to look fair and pretty.

If you have high blood pressure, I would not use it internally as one of its benefits is that is raises blood pressure of people who have low blood pressure. (07/29/2010)
