25 yr old male with oily skin and moderate acne issues. I have rather large pores on my face and body. Attached are some images of what I'm dealing with currently. The breakouts happen a few times every month. I cannot put my finger on the cause. They typically occur around the jawline and neck, as well as the back. My back is by far the most oily spot on my body, in addition to my chest.
Direct correlation to fitness and gym patterns?
Drink more water?
Result of body wash?
The images will give you an idea.
Hoping to hear some feedback from forum members as this has been incredibly difficult to manage and deal with emotionally.
Hey, so idk if this will work for you and there may be some things better for you (what i can do with my skin is limited due to how exceedingly sensitive my skin is) but these things may help, worth a try...
it's an anti0bacterial soap used for surgery sometimes to clean the skin and also used to fight staff infection...my skin is super sensitive so i tried it to wash my SUPER oily, moderate acne face and it helps. I get it at my local CVS or walgreens, never seen it in walmart. CVS has a cvs-brand alternative thats a little cheaper and i think walgreens may as well. works the same, or at least the cvs one does, haven't tried the walgreens one. around ten bucks i believe.
2) plantation mint tea.
A. Maz. Ing. Well as long as you drink it every day. My oily face is really really really bad...after about two or three hours after i do my morning routine (which for me includes makeup--without makeup, my face get super slick within about an hour) my face is so insanely shiny with oil it feels disgusting and looks terrible. I've tried washes and moisturizers galore and none of it helps except plantation mint tea--it's a charm. I have no clue why, I was at my wits end and desperate and read about it so i tried it and within a week i noticed it helping and two weeks even better.
I'll post a pic, its at walmart and prolly other places too, bigelow brand. I drink either two cups a day or sometimes if i dont have time i'll just put three or four tea bags in a cup (i love strong tea) and drink it before bed. i doubt it matters when you drink it (i havent noticed any dif as far as that) but i've noticed the more i drink a day the more it helps oiliness. luckily i love tea, but i usually only drink four tea bags worth a day, whether that be a few cups or one strong cup it doesnt matter. only problem i have is sometimes i just get busy and forget, and within a week or two of stopping the oil is back. easy, cheap solution to oil, it works wonders for me. Definitely worth a try.
