It is funny yet confusing. My skin is oily type and acne prone, and it getting worse after using Clean&Clear and Garnier PureActive. How can it be? They are supposed to be a medication for my skin, healing my acne. But why they make it worse?

They might be too drying for your skin, which leads to your skin producing more oil. You also may have a hormone imbalance. I would ask your doctor, if you have access to one :)

I also have oily skin and have found through experience that products targeting oily skin as catiebeatty said tend to be overdrying. The solution I found is to use a moisturizing cleanser and after using countless cleansers and my HG product is the one from pH Advantage glycolic gel cleanser from phskincare.com/skin-care-products/glycolic-gel-cleanser/ it also exfoliates, but the trick is also to only wash your face once a day. I used to think that since my skin was oily I had to strip it from all its by washing it all the time Big Mistake and have found that once a day at night is sufficient.
