Heredity and hormones  play a big part in oily skin.  Aside from these, stress and  wrong cosmetics can also aggravate this condition. There is no specific treatment for oily skin but here are some home remedies that may help with your problem. Clay masks or mud masks may help temporarily. Masks can cleanse the skin of surface greasiness. It is also important to wash your face with warm water and plenty of drying soap. You don't have to buy the expensive type. Make sure you use plenty of the soap and scrub the skin. Astringents with alcohol or  acetone are also helpful because acetone is a great fat and grease solvent. And lastly, use cosmetics that are water-based.  They are made to soak up and cover oiliness but there is no specific ingredient to slow down or stop oil production. Some women find baby powder effective.

Take care and regards.
