You can find a wide range of them at any drug store. 2. Wash your face twice a day. A fall skin care tip for oily skin that you can use all year round is to wash your face twice a day. Soap and the abrasion caused by rubbing your skin stimulate the sebaceous glands; these glands are the ones that secrete oil. So cleanse your face only in the morning and at night before bed. In between these times, blot away any excess shine with a soft cloth or tissue. 3. Avoid eating fatty, rich foods. As the temperatures lower, your body tends to crave comfort foods; ones that make you feel full and warm. Avoid falling into this trap. Stick to a healthy diet characterized by lean meats, fruits and vegetables. These kinds of foods help cleanse the body and maintain a normal PH balance in your skin while their counterparts do just the opposite. 4. Invest in make-up for oily skin.
