Hi there~<br>
I've always had pretty much problem free skin, but lately my face is on the oily side and I CANNOT STAND IT! What works best for this? Any tips or recommendations? TIA! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/loveeyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Loveeyes">:

I have oily skin and when I was a teenager, a dermatologist recommended that I use a light, oil-free moisturizer. It's counter-intuitive, but the explanation was that when your skin gets a little dry, your body tends to over compensate and produce too much oil. I've used fragrance-free Oil of Olay (probably not the most natural thing) on my face every day since<br>
I was about 14. It really helps me and I've found that if I don't use it, my skin gets really oily.
