oily skin with acne

Does anyone have any home remedies or anything that will make my skin less oily?  Ever since pregnancy my skin has gone crazy, I tried better make-up (improved a bit) but my skin is still oily without it. It wasnt this bad til I hit this last trimester =;( ugh I'm 29weeks Saturday.

I've had the same issue. Acne attacked my face like crazy and the oil is gross. 3 days ago I started taking a cotton ball and putting Apple cider vinegar on it and rubbing it all over my face before bed. After it dries a splash water on my face once. I also put it on before I get in the shower. It smells like a s s but my acne has decreased by half and its smoother and less oily.

its not a home remedy, but I had this same problem and tried so so much everything either made my skin too oily or too dry but I  bought clean and clear advantage acne control, took the oily skin away, cleared my acne and made my skin super soft all the time! I cant stop touching it (: it was only 5 bucks at target

Hey I saw you ask about oily skin home remedies
2 teaspoons of dry oats(oatmeal), grind it up and pour some witch hazel on it to make a paste, rub it gently on your face and rinse off with warm water. It works really good. You can do it once or twice every other day or every 2 days seeing how witch hazel closes and tightens pore(tighter pores= less oil).
Hope this works out for you
