If your skin is just oily but you don't get pimples, thank your lucky stars. I'm serious--oily skin stays young and wrinkle free for a very long time. I used to complain about my oily skin, but now I'm 34 and my skin looks significantly younger than most of my friends my age. My grandmother also had oily skin and she's in her late 80s now and still has soft skin with very few wrinkles--amazing. Don't use any harsh ingredients to wash your face, btw. because that will irritate your skin and cause it to produce more oil. I wash my face with the Soy foaming cleanser from Bath & Body Works, and use an uncented Eucerin moisturizer. You can just blot the oil with Clean & Clear blotting sheets (they are the best!) and powder it from time to time during the day to eliminate shine.

I agree with this post. I grew up with oily skin and for as long as I can remember I tried to eliminate it because it didn't look good on me, but like this post says when you get into your mid 30's you'll thank God for it. I'm 36 and I totally dig that my skin had all that oil in it. One of skins worst enemies is dryness, therefore if you're skin is oily the best advice I can give you is keep your hands away from it during the day, that's it. Besides anything you try to do will not eliminate it, the oil is in your genes. Chill out and try to enjoye it, you've got natures best skin.
