sebum, oil, oily skin, androgens and 4 more...
Below is a list of ingredients, along with relevant studies or anecdotes, that are indicated to help reduce sebum production, either directly or indirectly. I posted this on the Oily Skin forum, but I want it here too so that it has a greater chance of helping anyone else who is also searching for an oily skin cure. My next blog post talks about a new exp...

New Experiment For Oily Skin

sebum, oil, oily skin, greasy and 3 more...
I tend not to post about new products or regimens until after  I've gotten results from them, but I'm hoping that posting this will help me stick to my newest regimen.
I'm about to start using 6 new products on the right side of my nose for 2 months to see if they reduce the amount of sebum that my skin produces. I did a similar experiment with pep...

Although my blog is devoted chiefly to oily skin and acne, I also deal with seborrheic dermatitis and I like to provide periodic updates regarding my progress on that front as well, in case my experience can help someone else suffering from seb derm. One month ago I started washing the seb derm areas of my face with a sulfur soap called Coral KAVI. I...

Diet Experiment Over

Posted by Jofo, 15 May 2013 · 836 views

Today is the end of my diet experiment. It has been 37 days since I started and I'm sad to say that I haven't noticed any change in my oil output. To recap, I eliminated all grains, all dairy, almost all processed food, artificial sugar, and peanut butter. I was also shooting for low fat and moderate carbs. My diet literally consisted of almost the s...

General Update

Posted by Jofo, 04 May 2013 · 772 views

A quick update on the various experiments I have been trying. It's been almost a month since I started my elimination diet as described in my previous blog post. I haven't noticed any lasting improvement in oil production, but I will probably continue the diet for at least another two weeks beyond the one-month mark. One point of interest is that 5 d...

Diet Experiment For Oily Skin

Posted by Jofo, 16 April 2013 · 2,817 views

Last week I started a new diet to try and combat my oily skin from the inside out. It's a Paleo-ish diet in which I abstain from dairy, grains (wheat, oats, etc.), processed sugar, and basically any processed food. I have also cut peanut butter out of my diet, which used to be one of my main sources of calories (I'm using sunflower seed butter instead and...

Scalp Dandruff Gone With Coal Tar Shampoo

Posted by Jofo, 23 March 2013 · 1,346 views

I try to make individual blog posts for each experiment and successful remedy that I try, so I wanted to make a brief post about this. I have been dealing with scalp dandruff on and off for a long time. I don't know whether or not it's related to my seborrheic dermatitis, but I suspect it might be. Recently, for the past several months, my dandruff has be...

Bentonite Clay Clearing Up Breakout

Posted by Jofo, 23 March 2013 · 10,173 views

Just to follow up on my post from yesterday, my terrible seb derm acne breakout is starting to clear up. It was looking really bad yesterday. I don't think I've ever  had an acne breakout quite like that before. I was getting so desperate for a remedy that I considered buying a traditional acne product from the store, which would have been the first time...

Acne Breakouts From Seb Derm Treatments

Posted by Jofo, 22 March 2013 · 756 views

I started using raw honey masks and moisturizing with coconut oil a few days ago, and my skin is in really bad shape right now. My jawline is just covered in acne. And this is right after a previous breakout healed up completely. I started to notice irritation two days ago as my facial hair was growing out. Unfortunately, by the time I shaved last night,...

Seborrheic Dermatitis

Posted by Jofo, 18 March 2013 · 1,317 views

Seborrheic Dermatitis  I don't think I've ever talked about it before on this site, but in addition to extremely oily skin I also suffer from seborrheic dermatitis. When I grow facial hair, I get terrible flaking, and sometimes red rashes and pustules. I also get some flakes in my eyebrows, and I have dandruff on my scalp (not sure yet if that's related)....
