I’m in the same boat as you. What I recommend is this. Go through your usual facial care routine. After you put on your moisturiziner spread a thin layer or milk of magnesia on your face. I swear I’m not crazy. Milk of magnesia can ‘hold back’ the oil on your face. There will be some white streaks on your face, but just dab them off with your wash cloth. For added insurance get M.A.C.s matte gel as your make up primer.

If you’re wary about the m.o.m don’t be. I did a ton of research on it (youtube and google). I tried it Sunday before church and was SHOCKED. I also want to add that I also put moisturizer on top of the m.o.m. So I moisturized, m.o.m.’d, and moisturized.

Also, liquid foundation is a no no for oily skin. Try finding a mineral based one.

Hope this helps!

I have the same type of oily skin…

Mary Kay makes an oil control moisturizing lotion and an oil mattifier cream that I SWEAR by. the key to controlling oil is to moisturize because your skin tries to hydrate itself by producing oil, if you wash your face too much to try and rid the oil then your skin will over compensate and produce even more oil. My daily routine consists of cleansing with a mild cleanser, toning (products containing witch hazel close pores), and moisturizing with the mary kay lotion, using the mattifier on my nose, chin, and forehead. I totally recommend trying this, i have used several types of moisturizers and love it. Good luck!

BARE MINERALS!!!!!!  It’s in caps because I have SUPER oily skin, especially on my nose and it’s great!  It doesn’t run off or mess up because of the oils.  Also, it’s natural so you can layer it.  I use what’s called bisque on my nose some days when I really want to control the oil and it keeps it down very well.  I would also get a cleanser that is easy on your skin like Cetaphil.  I also use plain aloe vera with no alcohol as a moisturizer so I don’t get extra oils in the lotion.

Urban Decay makes a number of oil-control products and make-my-makeup-last-longer type products.  Maybe give their stuff a try?
