Wash your face two or three times a day with a mild cleanser that does not include perfumes or additives. Keep your skin very clean, but do not scrub too hard.

Use an oil-free moisturizer and cosmetics.

Use a clay-based face mask two or three times a week.

Choose products containing alpha-hydroxy acids, which remove dead cells and give skin a smoother appearance.

Mash up a small amount of papaya for your own fruit acid mask. Smear it on your skin, leave it on for 5 to 10 minutes, then rinse.

Steam your skin several times a week. Add chamomile, lavender oil or dried herbs such as rosemary, parsley or thyme to the water.

Keep your skin hydrated by drinking at least eight glasses of water a day.

Reduce fats and oils in your diet. Increase your intake of fresh vegetables, fruits and whole grains.

Watch your sun exposure. Although the sun may seem to dry your skin, too much heat actually stimulates the production of more oil.

Supplement your diet with B-complex vitamins, vitamin A, vitamin C, zinc and vitamin E. You can also take a high-potency multivitamin.
