How I have reduced oil on my face...

I kan't remember when I started suffering from very oily skin, but it was very bad. I would wash my face and literally ten minutes later it was already oily. One hour later, it was super greasy like if I had enough oil to fry eggs. I tried various products in hope to reduce oil on my face, I tried different brands of makeup, really I tried everything. From drinking enough water to trying not to use make-up at all. I even washed my face TWO times a day, in between I only used the blotting sheets. But still, no hope for me. Until.... I started using Pretika Sonic Dermabrasion brush!! It's a great alternative to the Clarisonic brand, which costs $150. For the Pretika I paid $30!! at Marshalls, regular price is abouth $50. It has the same features, it has a 20 second timer to wash different parts of the face, it's cordless, it has two settings for deep cleaning, and soft wash. Basically it's the same, just different brands.

So this is what I do...
At night when I take a shower I use my Pretika brush, I use it on high setting. I use 20 sec. timer on forehead, then my nose area, chin, right cheek, left cheek, and throat area. It cleanses and exfoliates at the same time. It's also great to reduce scars left from blemishes. After I get out of the shower I use my Bio-Oil to help with the scars, uneven skin tone, and dehydrated skin. This is what I use as a moisturizer, I don't apply anything else. This contains essential ingredients such as... Vitamin A, Vitamin E, Calendula oil, Lavender oil, Rosemary oil, Chamomile oil, and PurCellin Oil. The consistency is not too oily as I thought it would be like most oils out there, it's just a little oily but not too much. This makes my skin soft and doesn't make me breakout at all.

So because I use the Pretika brush for deep cleaning, I wash my face only once a day, night time. This has greatly reduced how much oil I had on my face and with the breakouts. There is no need for so many products, and no need to wash the face so many times, if not it will become worse.



  1. I use bio oil too!
    But I havent seen results yet. Probably because Im not disciplined enough too apply it regularly XD

  2. Yeah, applying it regularly it will work, I've seen my tummy stretchmarks disappear gradually. You can always take pictures for before and after comparison :)
