Ok

Make sure you're not touching your face and clean your phone- that's where it sits on your face. Put coconut oil on your chin before bedtime.

Toner

Try using a toner after you cleanse and before you moisturize - it has made a big difference in my face.

Yup

I found a huge difference cleaning my phone and trying not to touch my face. Also, ensure you are moisturizing after exfoliating and definitely moisturize before bed- that's when the skin dries out and absorbs the most

Something to try...

I was in the Aesthetics program and I had to learn different skin types. Now I am a pure oily skin tpe and I was given a specific kit to use on my face, but you seem to be a mixed skin type since your chin is dry. I would suggest that you actually go in to a local spa and have a consultation about your face. As an Esthetician can tell you better what you should be using on your skin.

Jojoba oil!

Seriously. Moisturize with Jojoba oil. It's very similar to the skins natural sebum, so its very moisturizing and regulates oil production. You'll be amazed! My face was a constant oil slick before trying this stuff.

i can help

actually im an esthetician licensed n all . forst of all you need to make sure your using the right products on your skin , a dirty cell phone wouldnt give u oily skin it would make u break out but have no effect on the sebum you produce so as its a good idea to clean whatever touvches your face it is not the culprit . sometimes oily skin is just genetic , you need to start treating your face like a babys bottom in that i mean with extreme tender care , no scrubbing no mitts no exfoliators and that includes on your chin . you need to get a cleanser for sensitive skin not oily not dry but sensitive . preferable from dr hauschka or dermalogica as they have the best products but are very expensive . the reason for choosing sensitive is because i believe your skin is going through some changes probably from hormones or stress and we dont want to be messing around with 2 different types of cleansers , sensitive is perfect for all skin types as well . you will wash your face once a day unless you exercise or do something that would really dirty it up like biking or football . when you wash use your hands and rub gently with 2 fingers dont forget your neck then rinse . after use a gentle toner preferably spray on . then moisturize. do not touch your face or pick or scrub . do this for a month you should see results in a week or two . this is as much help as i can give you without seeing you in person i hope it helps .

thank you

Thank you for your help ladies. The toner seemed to make it worse so I going to try the sensitive skin wash now. I wash my face with a loreal cleanser in the the morning and then aveno moisturizer. I do wear makeup during the day I work in a jewellery store. I wash my face again after work and use an exfoliater and then aveno again and a night cream under my eyes.
