Hi Mike, thank you for the question.
There are a number of reasons for an oily skin and the cause should be found before an adequate topical regime can be prescribed. My advice is to consult a dermatologist or an aesthetic medical practitioner who can examine the skin first. Generally speaking an oily skin can be caused by:
Washing the face aggressively with scrubs, brushes, granular exfoliants, etc
Acne prone skin
Using excessively topical oily products
I would consider using a gentle face wash twice daily and the NeoStrata Oil Control Gel and if necessary Clear Skin Solution to minimize pores and reduce the oily sheen on the skin. Furthermore you should consider the NeoStrata Glycolic acid peels.
Matis should be fine to use on your skin as long as it is oil free.
