How can I fix it? My face feels dry after I've washed it, but after a few hours I have a proper oil slick on my forehead. I've always had dry skin, this has started over the past few months. I don't use anything on my face apart from whatever moisturiser is to hand probably once or twice a week and babywipes to remove eye make up.
I also have oily skin, and absolutely the thing that has helped me the most is having a proper daily skincare routine. In the morning cleanse (I use shu uemura's Ultimate Cleansing oil), tone, facial oil (I know this sounds crazy but it's not!), serum and moisturiser. At night repeat all again minus the facial oil. Give it a go - you'll need to do it for a few weeks, but it should help
I've got oily skin too and I've just invested in some oil and cloths to try OCM. I'm hoping for some nice results. I've gone with sweet almond as my carrier oil. For the oils, a set of travel bottles for decanting and cloths it's come in at under £10. I can cope with that.
It sounds like your skin could actually be dehydrated - realising mine was after reading one of Sali Hughes's Guardian columns was a revelation. I treat my skin quite gently with products for sensitive skin, and use a facial oil at night. I think a faff is probably going to help if you can be bothered!
