  3. Hello dear, You can start by using an oil control face wash(MAC Green Gel Cleanser)to wash your face morning and Night, it helps to reduce the oil secretion on your face then you can also you an oil control lotion (MAC Oil control lotion or Nos 7 Shine control primer )for your face as facial cream to control oil and minimize your touch up and if you must use powder and foundation get oil free or oil blotting product(IMAN Cosmetics) you can get the MAC product at ikeja shopping Mall(Shoprite). I hope i have helped a bit.

    Since you said you wear make up, try putting milk of magnesia on your face before applying make up. I'm being serious, it really works in controlling oil. I have oily skin too and I saw this trick on one of these youtube makeup videos. I know it's a laxative and all, but it's all natural so you don't have to worry too much about being allergic to anything. As for the pimples and blackheads, exfoliate more often, like every 2 days. I do this too and now my skin is completely smooth. You can also try products that have tea tree in it, for example, The Body Shop (not sure if they have this in Nigeria) has a Tea Tree Blackhead Exfoliating Wash which my mum used and it's all cleared up now. Changing your diet a little might help. If you eat a lot of oily/fried foods, you might want to reduce this and replace it with lots of water, fruits and vegetables. Hope this helps!

    1. You are very correct! But poster, pls don't overdo the milk of magnesia stuff oooo! It will dry out your face and wrinkle it up at this your young age. It's a once in a while thing. Like this anon said, watch what you eat...reduce your oil intake. Also, don't use oil-based products on your skin....switch to water-based instead. Do your facials religiously. Change your pillowcase frequently. When doing your facials, use a clay/mud mask. Also use a good face primer and mattifier for your makeup.

    2. @ Anon, which product do you use in exfoliating?

      Delete
  10. Yeah, I think she should try milk of magnesia.

    Chinazor Ekeh(pls pardon my spelling), an MUA who is a WC reader once suggested it to a fellow reader who had issue with her oily skin.

    Also reduce fatty/oily food intake like fried pastries, groundnut/peanuts, milk. All the best!

    For blackheads and pimples, I use crushed Vit C tablets dissolved in water to treat it and apply my moisturising cream afterwards because the vit c solution dries the skin. But in your case, you might skip it since you've got enough oil to soften your skin.

    Look for a soap that dries the skin after washing eg black soap(dudu osun) since you've got excess oil on your face.

      Crusader doesn't bleach. Just make sure u get the original. It works wonders. It cleared my 3months old serious disfiguring pimples, in less than a week. Try it.

    3. I have to agree with this ..I battled pimples for over a year .They can from now where and I just got tired.I actually was in a gold jewellery shop when a woman (God bless women)approached me and asked me to go get crusader thst her face was worse than mine.I was sceptical at first due to the mercury content but when I did ,I could not believe the results .what hundreds of thousands could not do ,a mere 700 naira soap did in less than a month

    Try and use neutrogena oil eliminating facial wash and toner. Then exfoliate twice a week. Use astrigent on your face before u apply makeup.avoid oily foods

  15. All these face wash and toners everybody is recommending, ȋ̝̊̅ wonder the one she Wȋ̊ℓℓ use. Ȋ̝̊̅ prefer to use easy to find thns cos ȋ̝̊̅ have same issue with you. Before ȋ̝̊̅ sleep ȋ̝̊̅ wash face with warm water and den apply toothpaste to any pimple present. Wen ȋ̝̊̅ wake up in d morning ȋ̝̊̅ use a wash cloth in warm water and little detol to clean face, den ȋ̝̊̅ apply honey on face and leave for an hour. After washing honey off, ȋ̝̊̅ use oatmeal with little water in paste form on entire face, leaving it for 15 mins, den wet hands wt warm water and massage face wt d oatmeal(acts as a scrub) for some mins and wash off. U̶̲̥̅̊ Wȋ̊ℓℓ be amazed at d outcome

    1. Jite, instead of applying honey and leaving it for an hour, then later applying the oatmeal mix and leaving for another 15 mins, you can actually mix the honey and oatmeal together, making it a mask/scrub and apply it on your face. You leave the mixture on your face for a while (as a mask), then scrub it all over before eventually washing it off.

      Well, unless you prefer doing it the way you said sha. : )

  16. For the pimple use ground cinammon, check big supermarkets, spices section, where you have curry and thyme you will see cinammon its a spice too like curry n thyme. Get 3 tablespoon of honey mix with one teaspon of the ground cinammon. Rub at night and go to bed. You would be amazed at the smoothness of ur face in d morning. The pimples would be gone. Continue for 2weeks. Will try the Milk of Magnesia for my oily face, just hearing it for the first time. Thanks peeps.

    My face is very oily and the milk of magnesia didn't work. I will advice the poster to get a facial routine and stick to it. I do money twice a week. Boil very hot water, pour into a bowl, Place your head above the steam and cover with a heavy duvet or blanket. Try and get all the steam time your face and come up for air only When y absolutely have to.
    Secondly, after the steaming, thoroughly apply any apricot scrub on your face, I use Eden. St ivy's is also good. Expiate gently with it and rinse away with the remaining warm water.
    Thirdly, apply a mask in your face. Any mud/clay mask should do. I use Queen Helene mint julep masque. It's cheap and works wonders. Check any large cosmetic shop for it.
    Then finally, after washing away the mask, use a cotton ball and your normal facial cleanser to clean your face.
    Try and stick to this regimen at least twice weekly. You need to see my face. I know it's hard but good things don't come easy.
    Also try and get that hand glove that is a bit spongy. You can use that on days When you don't really have time to exfoliate .

    I used to have the worst oily forehead! Always my forehead was shiney and I was so embarrassed! I now use the Citrus Clear Acne Wash daily and it is great at keeping an even skin tone and keeping those fine lines and wrinkles at bay. The product is all natural with no harmful chemicals so my daughter who struggles with acne uses it also and it has kept her acne under control for the last five years. No more oily forehead!!

    I stay in ibadan; Nigeria. These things are hard to find. I have a very oily face esp my nose. Even when I wear make up, in less than an hour my foundation(mary kay 600) starts getting oily. What do I do?

  20. Now serums even out the tone of your skin and, also, firm your skin. There is one beauty serum from a chain in Europe is about the price of a bucket of chicken and is very popular.
    collagen cream for face

  21. Try reducing your oil, fat and carbs intake, I noticed that the foods we consume play a lalar part to how our skin looks and reacts.
