topical dht inhibitor
Since PDT was only minorly effective against the oil slick known as my face, I'm checking out some of the weird little products that are supposed to reduce oil topically.

Here are the active ingredients I'm going to investigate topically first:

zinc pca
saw palmetto
nobiletin

Names of products I'm going to try:

La Roche-Posay Effaclar K Acne Treatment Fluid (Zinc pca)
Garden Botanika Moisture Lotion, Clarifying, (zinc pca)
Solvere Acne Clearing Toner (zinc pca)
Clearogen lotion (Saw palmetto)
Sana Fela tangerine anti-shine cream (nobiletin)

I'll try them methodically and post updates on effectiveness.

If none of these work, maybe I'll try some of the sketchy looking products like topical spiro and other hair-loss products that contain chemical dht inhibitors.
