I`m a 50 year old male with Italian roots and an olive complexion. I have had the oiliest, greasiest skin since I went into puberty. It bothered me for many years and I thought it was some kind of curse. Only an hour after I washed my face thoroughly, my face looked like an oil slick. I used to have to go into the men`s bathroom stall and blot my forehead, nose and cheeks to absorb the oil until the new oil absorbing sheets came out a few years ago by Clean & Clear. I DO look way younger than my 50 years. People don`t believe me when I tell them my age, most say I look like I`m in my mid thirties, and also have tanned my whole life....I love the beach. Now I think my oily skin IS a blessing, so yeah, I believe oily skin looks younger than dry skin. I don`t believe that whole sebum thing. My skin is so moisturized that I cannot put lotion or moisturizer on it.

Yep it does, but only a little bit. Definetly not worth the major pain on the ass right now LOL.

People never cease to amaze me. Some with their brilliance, others with their ignorance. eusa_think.gif
