I just lost a lot of eyebrow hairs, now I have oily skin and I usually just splash water on my face when I wake up in the morning. The problem is I still have a lot of dirt and oil buildup on my eyebrows and earlier I was picking at it and I scraped a lot of dirt and oil along with eyebrow hairs from my eyebrows. Any idea why that is? And how should I wash my eyebrows in the morning?
Girls, Any of you ever have this problem with your eyebrows?

If you have really thick eyebrows, you should trim them. If you don't know how, go to a place that does eyebrows. They won't shape them like they do girls, just tell them you would like them trimmed. I have really oily skin and just splashing water isn't going to help. You sound like you have a serious oil problem. Invest in some good face wash. It's more on the pricey side ($20) it's called clear start, they have wash/cleansers specifically for oily skin. Wash twice a day. When you wake up and before you go to bed. Run and focus more on your T-Zone (forehead and nose) focus into your eyebrows really good and pat your face dry with a clean towel. Drink more water and eat less greasy/fried foods. Also moisturize! Find a good oil free moisturize/face lotion. I hear cetaphil is great, but it's also pricey ($15+) just look at reviews of products for your oily skin. I don't know if you'd want to but you could carry around oil blotting sheets. They're these little paper things that catch oil just rub the sheet on your face and you can actually see all the oil come off. They're not too expensive (5+) and if it's necessary, you can wash your face in the shower too (or I'd you just shower in the afternoon and not when you just wake up)1
Just splashing water on your face isn't quite enough to deal with oily skin. I would recommend investing in a cleanser. Do NOT use handsoap, or soap bars, or shower gels. The skin on your face is a lot more sensitive than the skin on the rest of your body.
Generally applying a cleanser and washing your face with warm water and using a wash cloth in circular motions is the best way to clean your skin. Especially oily skin! You also should not pick at it!!! That's only going to make it worse.
That said, it's also possible that you are having some sort of reaction, and I'd recommend seeing a dermatologist just in case. If everything checks out, get a cleanser!
Hope it clears up soon! Skin can be such q drag1
Nope, never had that problem. Do you work in dirt or something that would cause that much buildup?1
I use face wash every night and morning so no I don't have that problem1
