This topic needs to be deleted. It's a complete load of *****, I'm sorry, I bet some idiot is already convinced that using the computer is the cause of their oily skin....

Nah everytime I study for an exam I'm in the computer for about 6-8 hours and I do notice my face getting really oily but it could be stress from studying or maby there is a correlation, either way my face is oilier than the gulf of Mexico.

So, is this stupid and a complete lie or is it possible? all this is doing to be honest would be making some users worry or anxious, like me.

Ever since I was 11 or so I used the computer A LOT some days, even in the dark, didn't get any pimples. Now that I'm 17, I still use the computer, but I get pimples.

Might be something to do with the eyes (obviously, if this thread is anything to go by), as in, some sort of mechanism the human body is used to, producing more oil when the eyes are exposed to sunlight (or bright lights), in order to protect the skin from harmful rays the sun emits. So, your body is actually being fooled by the artificial lights/glare from our computer/TV screens and other light sources etc.

Oil production is purely under hormonal control, not under light control or anything like "your skin overcompensates, creating more oil to make up for my balls"...
