1.    To clear excess oil as well as dirt and bacteria on your skin, wash your face and other oily areas twice a day with mild cleanser that contains salicylic or glycolic acid.

2.    Apply facial mask (which made from clay or mud) twice a week. Remember to follow the instructions and rinse your face with a towel gently. These masks are very effective in temporarily by absorbing sebum from pores and leave you a clean and healthy face in hours.

3.    If these above treatments don’t work, then try an over-the-counter treatment. For example, using topical acne treatment containing alcohol like astringent or toner to dry the skin surface and temporarily absorb oil on skin. Apply to your skin twice after cleansing in the morning and before bed. You should also try a shine-control primer before applying makeup to create an oil-absorbent layer between skin and makeup. This will help bring you a smooth-looking face.

·         You may need two separate cleansers to control sebum, depending on the season. It’s better to use extra-gentle cleanser in autumn and winter, during which time skin tends to be drier; deep-cleaning cleanser in hot condition to be against the combination between sweat and oil.

·         Do not wash your face too many times, no matter how mild your cleansers are, as this may cause skin irritations, essential oil stripping and drying. Stick to the routine to clean your face twice a day unless instructed by dermatologist.
