    Severe oily skin~
    tlk1980 posted:
    HELP!! I am dealing with the oiliest skin I have ever had! I have seen a Drematologist who prescribed Retnin-A to apply to my face at night but I wake up in the morning and my face is so shiny and oily again! I hate to wear make-up because it wears off my noon. I wash my face once, sometimes twice a day with St. Ives Apricot Scrub, I have tried Neutrogena's foundation for oily skin- no luck. I use about 3-4 oil blotting papers a day! Please help!!

    Try obagi kits . It is very effective for oily skin. Blame it on improper nutrition or lack of self-care; health is declining on the double. This leads to weakness and reflection of old age.

    I can understand your skin problem. I can suggest for Obagi product. A natural based skin care product is now very essential for you. Believe it for best result.
