    What you put into your body comes out. You could be eating greasy food. If you are eating foods that contain a lot oil or grease then it may be that your system is not able to get rid of the excess oil or grease. Perhaps you eat chips or a lot of butter/margarine. If this is the case then you are taking in too much oily substance and you need to reduce this in our diet. By doing this you can also reduce weight. Also water is very good for eliminating unwanted excess of substances in your system, so drink some more water to flush out your system. Your could also try some lemon juice in your tea which may help to break down the oily content of your food. Use a tea bag if you want and instead of milk, add a fresh lemon slice and a sweetener that has little or no calories as a drink. this is really refreshing and is better for you and will help cleanse your liver too!

    You should splash warm water on your face so you open your pores.. after that use cold water to close them. That should help reduce the oil. I don't know of any homemade masks.. but I use clearasil daily face wash & that works GREAT! Leaves my face feeling super clean.

    Tea tree oil works wonders! You can purchase it at any store to be honest now a days. It smells great and refreshes and moisturize your face as well as helps with your oil/acne problem. It's also all natural so you can keep PETA off your back!
