Most likely placebo like the reports of other people here. Also, don't encourage people to potentially starve themselves or embarass themselves socially by suggesting they should "go vegan". Acne and oily skin are already hard enough to manage by themselves.

 

So to summarize, all the statements that are quoted here are just plain lies. If you want to help people with oily skin, you should at least suggest solutions that have some science behind them, like I did in this thread: http://www.acne.org/...-for-oily-skin/ Anything else is just useless and can potentially harm the well-being of oily skin sufferers.

 

Bottom line: oily skin is determined by the sensitivity your sebaceous glands to male hormones.

Eating a vegan diet also helps my oily skin a ton. It is most definitely NOT a placebo affect. I used to have horribly oily skin. Within minutes of washing my face I could see oil coming out of my pores. Now I can last a lot longer (8-12 hours) before I feel like absolutely need to wash my face because of the oil.

 

It's only your imagination. Diet and sebum production are absolutely not related. If you're so sure, just post a study that proves the link.

 

>Just avoid Fatty Meats and eat more Fiber Foods. Wash your face twice a day to remove excess oil so it does not clog your pores.

 

Eating fatty foods or fiber will not influence your oil production. Removing excess (whateved tha means) oil is useles too because your skin will continue to produce oil at a constant rate and will become oily again, for some people (like me before taking high doses of vitamin A) in a matter of hours.

 

 

For me, washing my face in less than ten seconds. It seems that the more I wash my skin the oilier it gets...

Really? How would you explain THAT?? Does your car get dirtier, the more you wash it? Does your house or apartment get dirtier, the more you wash it? I personally did an experiment with Sebutape Skin Indicators which I used as the way to measure sebum on my skin; as expected, I got the results that any reasonable person would expect: the more I washed my skin, the drier it got. I think you're just fooling yourself when you think that your skin supposedly got OILY when you washed it more often.

Ok i guess you dont know much about sebacuos glands. Skin is not steel. The more you wash and rub it, the more you stimulate the sebacuos glands and eventually your skin becomes oilier.
There is a cream in clinique, pore refining serum it is called. No color or perfume. It really absorbs oil for at least 8 hours. I am not that oily but i use it on special occasions before my make up, and i keep my make up fresh all night!

 

Bryan (may he rest in peace) is right. Washing your skin doesn't make it produce more oil, your skin is not conscious, it doesn't know what you're doing on the outside and is just producing sebum at a constant rate, this rate is determined by your sensitivity to male hormones like DHT. So you skin oil production is basically determined by your genetics.

 

The cream you're talking about has most likely milk of magnesia as active ingredient, and yes, it works well to make your skin look like it's not oily. But it's just a trick really, your skin is still producing as much oil as usual.

 

I guess now that Bryan is dead, I'll have to be the annoying guy who has to teach unpleasant truths about skin to ignorant people.

 

 

Arguing with so called "Know it alls" on the internet is not worth anyone's time and energy at all. This is my success story, and it is the truth. There are also many factors other than hormones that contributes to oil production like diet, exercise, stress level and age. The reason why Brian (RIP) doesn't have oily skin is due to his age. As you grow older your sebum production obviously declines as your hormone levels decline with age. Foods that stimulate testosterone like extremely high protein diet will increase sebum. There are many factors that affect hormones which will also affect the levels of sebum production. Please refrain from arguing because it is useless and pointless and will NEVER win anything especially on the internet.

 

The point of this site is to take the success stories of others and take it to consideration whether you apply it to your life or not. Good bye and have a nice day yall.

Oratane 2.5mg

I will ask my dermatologist, though I was wondering in advance, can it be purchased? What is the lowest dosage you can take orally?

Thanks.

BP keeps my face from getting too oily. I do drink milk thistle supplements, but I'm not sure if it helped me with the oilness. I also control my oilness with powder makeup. Works wonders.

 

Benzoil Peroxide has no influence on oily skin. Milk thistle could help a little because it elevates your estrogen levels. I would not recommend that to men.

Benyzol peroxide helps my skin stay dry

Hey,

No, lemon juice is taken orally. I mean as a drink. The link i posted was for lemon powder tablets which for me is helping - to what i think so far. I feel a little less oily. But i plan on giving it a go for a month and see whether it changes or reduces the production of oil completely.

You really never know.
Honestly, think about it in say cures or chemicals or medications being accepted or rejected by the body for patients being healed by medicines, basic ones or very complex or how do you say it, sophisticated drugs, everyone is ultimately made up differently. Genetically and also physically. But for my reasoning to try all types of healthy alternatives or solutions to cure or help with oily skin, we all have a different body type.

There are so many herbs to treat all sort of diseases or problems. Whether for skin, nervous system, aches or pains, you have to have a positive approach and forward thinking ideas to try to come up with a solution to a problem. If you do nothing, nothing will arise from it.

You think I like showering everyday? Plus another two times on top of this because my skin plays up and I literally feel like jumping out of my skin. No i don't and i think it's just crazy.

If you arent providing useful info or solutions to oily skin. Or even discussing your situation with everyone to help yourself get your feelings out or discussing something positive then why are you being like this?

-----
Also,

I use a showergel currently to wash my body. Though somethting I heard and people swear by it even and im going to try it. Get some aspro clear, mix it with milk to make a paste, and apply it to the skin. It will clear rashes and eczema. I will be trying it soon enough for oily skin. At the moment I am trialling the lemon powder and also the lemon capsules when they arrive.


Otherwise, good luck to all!

I created these topics:

 

http://www.acne.org/...-for-oily-skin/

 

http://www.acne.org/...r-my-oily-skin/

 

And they aren't about feelings, like when you say, you "feel less oily", they are about scientifically proven solutions for oily skin.

I am on 1000 IU daily. Before instantly after washing my face, my skin starts oiling up. But now its much better no more oil. 

 

Vitamin d3 plus I stopped drinking milk. I found out that dairy and meat, makes my skin oily so I stopped. and now its much much better.

I think i agree with you.
When i am home i tend to drink coffee with lots of milk. When i am out of the house or doing something away from home, my skin is less oily. Im surprised as i was thinking this just yesterday.

I also tried vitamin d3. My skin was much oiler at start but i never continued with it for more than a week and a half, i may try it again and see how it works out.

Im on lemon capsules at the moment and my skin has become oily throughout the day from when i since showered. I took two capsules last night when and two today.
I want to go give it a good month or two before i stop or till i see results.

But yes i believe milk is also the cause of oily skin for myself.

A clay mask will absorb excess oil. I use Aztec secret Indian healing clay from sprouts market. Mixed with water or raw organic Apple cidar vinegar. After gently washing it off with warm water (not too hot) use a cloth soaked in hot water, ring it out a bit and place over face. Repeat a few times. This opens the pores to be cleared. Then tone face. I use Humphreys brand citrus witch hazel oil controlling toner from sprouts. Use a small amount on a cotton ball. The final step important not to skip is moisturizing. This indeed is important even for oily skin. (to balance your skin DO NOT overwash or scrub hard as it will irritate and dry out causing your skin to produce more oil to overcompensate for the dryness. I have oily skin and consulted with a skin specialist also have had facials such help too) anyways, make sure you do not use cream. Use lotion or moisturizer that is non-pore clogging a.k.a. "non-comedogenic" I use LA ROCHE-POSAY EFFACLAR MAT daily moisrurizer. It is anti shine and anti enlarged pores. From Ulta. If u use foundation choose a mattifying powder. I use mareminerals mat formula loose powder and finishing powder in compact. Ive tried ALOT of products and these are best for me. Keep the receipts if they don't work, return it. Hope any of this was helpful to anyone.

A clay mask is useless against oily skin, anything external is useless against oily skin. You can do whatever you want to remove that sebum off your skin, it will come back in a matter of hours because your skin is producing sebum at a constant rate under the influence of male hormones.

 

All topicals are useless to treat oily skin, it can only be fought with internal treatments.

fred does speak the truth , having tried a million products for my oily nose I give up!,  I would try a ultra low dose of accutane but being in the UK the doctor is never going to give it to me  ;) I just blot it very couple of hours with a very thin piece of tissue very effective lol
