I'm Dr. Rosalyn George from Wilmington Dermatology Center in Wilmington, North Carolina, and I'd like to give you some beauty tips on caring for oily skin. People with oily skin frequently have trouble finding makeups. Luckily now there a lot of products that people can use. Definitely look for oil free makeups, mattifying makeups, and also the mineral makeups tend to be better for oily skin. Also look for lightweight oil free moisturizers and sunscreens also that are oil free. Another really really nice product for people with oily skin is one called OC Eight Mattifying Gel and it's something that you can put on under your makeup each day and it provides eight hours of oil free control which is really really nice for people in a working environment that have a, you know, a day or an event to go to and then those oil cloths and they're, you can get those at the department stores, you can get them at the drugstore, Neutrogena, Biore, L'Oreal all make really nice oil blotting cloths that you can use if you need to touch up during the day. There are a multiple prescription products that you can use to try to decrease oil. Retinoids like Retin-A and over the counter products like Retinol can decrease the amount of oil that you produce. Microdermabrasion and glycolic acid peels are another way that you can do like a skin maintenance program to try to control oil. And then people with really oil skin especially females because females have a lot of hormonal control over their oil, there are actually oral medicines that can block that hormone receptor on your oil glands and decrease the amount of oil that you produce. That was some basic information, but before you start any skin care program or have any procedures, please consult with your dermatologist or skin care specialist.
