    1. Do not use facial scrubs on oily skin. It stimulates more oil production. Instead use products containing AHA (Alpha Hydroxy Acids: glycolic acid, citric acid, lactic acid) or BHA (Beta Hydroxy Acids: salicylic acid) or enzymes from pineapple, milk, pumpkin etc. which will help to dissolve the 'glue' holding dead skin cells stuck to the skin.

    2. Cleanse the skin morning and night with a gentle pH balanced (slightly acidic) foaming cleanser. Your skin has a protective acid 'mantle' which we want to maintain as bacteria don't tend to multiply in an acid environment. Most 'soaps' are highly alkaline and strip the natural acid mantle from the skin leaving it vulnerable to bacteria.

    3. Follow the cleanser with a toner free of alcohol or acetone. Again, these are so drying that they send a message to the oil gland that it needs to increase production of oil. Simply place a few drops on a clean, natural cotton pad and wipe it gently over the entire face and throat.

    4. Use a moisturizer that is light and oil-free. Oil and moisture are two different things and oily skin does need moisture. Moisture is water-based and even oily skin can be dehydrated from lack of water. Be sure to drink lots of water too.

    5. Use the AHA, BHA, or enzyme masque twice a week only (too much will again be too stimulating) to improve circulation, and oxygen exchange of the skin and brighten a dull look by removing dead skin cells. This can also help control blemishes.

    6. Use a clay masque once a week to help tighten pores thus refining them.Keeping the skin clean without over-treating it will certainly help in the refining process by keeping the pores clear of dead cells, stale makeup, dirt etc.

    7. Be very consistent with your skin care regime and never retire for the night without doing your program. The skin is very active during sleep doing it's repairing job and producing new cells at a faster rate than when we are awake. Help it do this by having a clean, breathing skin at night.

    8. Use natural products. Artificial perfumes, coloring agents, synthetic chemicals and mineral oil are to be avoided at all costs if you want to get control of oily skin.

    9. Apply an oil-free, mineral powder makeup base for the daytime. Use powder blush rather than cream blush and powder eyeshadows rather than cream eyeshadows. A dusting of a translucent powder can be applied two or three times during the day after blotting the face with a tissue to remove any excess oil.

    10. Change your face cloth every day. Oils become rancid quickly. Wash makeup brushes and applicators at least weekly. Keep your hands off your face, clean the telephone with an alcohol wipe daily.
