Make sure that your skin is really the oily type. Sometimes your skin may seem oily, but that can be caused because the skin is dry, and the cells produce more oils. If you dry your skin out, you might even get more and more breakouts. Look for a product that doesn't have a lot of chemicals, to make sure that you won't damage your skin. This product has smooth texture and won't cause a lot of dryness. Be careful from products that have salicylic acid, because they might not be the solution to your problem.
