Cleanse the skin with warm water and a mild cleanser that contains glycolic acid, salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide. Rub the cleanser into the skin with a washcloth for extra exfoliation. Rinse thoroughly, and pat the skin dry with a towel.
Saturate a cotton ball with an astringent toner, and wipe it over the oily areas. Do not apply toner to dry, irritated or broken skin, and keep it away from the eyes.
Wash your hands, and apply a small amount of oil-free moisturizer. Give the product time to absorb, then apply additional moisturizer to areas of skin that feel dry or tight.
Absorb oil throughout the day by pressing blotting papers over the shiny areas. Use one paper at a time. Set the paper over the oil, smooth it flat against the skin, hold it there for 20 seconds, then peel it away.
