Hi moolypooly,
This is some basic info about oily skin that might be of some help:

"Oily skin basics
Oily skin produces excessive amounts of sebum, a lipid-rich protective substance. A good thing about oily skin is that it is usually well-moisturized due to its own protective oil. The downside is that it may look shiny or dirty and tends to develop large pores and be prone to acne.

Oily skin routines usually include the following recommendations:

Wash your skin twice a day with a cleanser containing salicylic acid, a beta-hydroxy acid that reduces sebum production.
If you skin is extremely oily (e.g. oily even after basic cleansing), you can follow with alcohol-based toner with salicylic acid. Most people should avoid alcohol-based cleansers and toners due to the drying effect of alcohol. However, for extreme cases of oily skin, it may just do the trick.
Generally, people with oily skin shouldn't moisturize. If you feel you have to, apply nonocclusive, noncomedogenic, oil-free moisturizer after cleansing.
Use oil-free, noncomedogenic sunscreen whenever sun exposure is expected.
If the above steps are insufficient and you are still producing too much oil, try treatments that reduce sebum production. They include topical vitamin A creams (retinol, retinal or retinyl palmitate), sulfur creams, azeleic acid and retinoids (tretinoin, tazarotene, adapalene). Retinoids and high-strength sulfur creams require a prescription. If your oil problem is so bad that you are considering prescription treatments, you should probably see a dermatologist anyway.
Some people with oily skin may benefit from a clay/mud mask once a week."


From:Skin Care Basics

Don' make the mistake of doing anything drastic just before prom - start slowly well in advance so you know how it's going to react with your skin. And, it goes without saying: No tanning beds!!
I hope yu have a great time!!!

Hiya I have those horriable spots that break out just on the jaw line, blackheads on my forehead, nose and the sinus areas, and chin, my skin is shiny so I presume that means oily, but the rest of me is dry. I have extremely sensitive skin, recently I started going for facials and she totally threw out my cleaning routine which was using teenage acne face washes and creams. My face was extremely red in places. I have now bought the products that were recommended and I'm still getting breakouts, my skin quality seems to have improved but the spots are still there and when I see the disgusting blackheads I tend to squeeze them. Any advice would be greatly received. As Im new I havent specified what products I use but happy to do so as I'm not sure if they are working or not.

Hi Gavelgirl,

What does the biore nourishe do? Can you please explain how it used and how many times you need to apply? I am very interested in this product coz I have oily and acne-prone skin too. Thanks.

moolypooly: I completely understand your problem. My skin is the same and nothing works!

It's a gel that you can use as a serum and a moisturiser. It repairs the skin at night. You can use it under makeup as well apparently.
