  1. Anybody found anything that actually works for oily skin?!

    Thank you purplxed, that's really good to know and I found other people saying the same thing when I looked it up as well. Will have a search for the products you mention but not sure if I'll be able to find them in the UK. Hopefully amazon might have them! Thanks for the suggestions

    Thank you!
  3. Anybody found anything that actually works for oily skin?!

    Thanks Mitsu! Would I be able to get that in a drugstore too or do you find it more in those natural remedies kind of shops? What form does it come in and how do you take it? Sorry for the questions, I've just never heard of it before....
  4. Will Benzoyl Peroxide work for me?

    Your skin doesn't become immune to benzoyl peroxide no matter how long or how much you use of it so I'd say it's definitely worth a shot. The 10% will probably be very drying and the irritation itself might be causing more acne. The 2% will be much gentler so you may even see improvements and it's definitely less harsh for your skin in any case!

    Ah great, thank you! Is it not meant for skin then? Will have a look next time I'm out.
  6. Acne For 9 years

    I know the feeling..... 24 and been dealing with it 10 years as well. That said it's been a lot better the past year *fingers crossed* because of a combination of Epiduo and cutting out all dairy from my diet. If I eat dairy by mistake I always break out again, sometimes with cysts. It's not pretty! Maybe test to see if there are any food types that might be triggering your continued breakouts.
  7. Should I take my dermatologists advice...?

    I tried the regimen ages ago and my skin was just red raw the whole time even after several months. I don't think bp is supposed to be applied more than once a day personally so I would go with what your dermatologist says. I've had much better results applying Epiduo (containing bp) once a day than I ever did on the regimen applying twice a day because it irritated my skin so much.
  8. Anybody found anything that actually works for oily skin?!

    Thank you for replying snarkygirl. No I haven't tried milk of magnesia. Where would I go about getting some? I've been on birth control before and it didn't seem to make any difference unfortunately. But I'll try your other suggestions, thank you
  9. Please please please please please help. I am going out of my mind here. For the fourth time in as many weeks doing my volunteering with children a child has asked my why I look so sweaty and I know it's the oily shine they're noticing but I feel like I've tried everything to help it and nothing works. Has anyone had real success with any product for reducing oil and shine?! Things I've tried: Epiduo and other topical retinoids Blotting papers Garnier long lasting shine control moisturiser Facial antiperspirant Loads of different "mattifying" make up products Dianette oral contraceptive Please does anybody else have any other suggestions for stuff that has actually worked for them?
