I suffer from very oily skin, my face gets oily 30mins after washing!

The only thing that has worked for me is Accutane. I can't be on it for the rest of my life. Hence I'm on this topic, I wish everyone luck in finding a solution for oily skin. X

How about a probiotic in a high dose (10 bill to 30 bill)? It's been proven to reduce sebum content and inflammation. I've been using one for awhile and can attest to this. My skin used to be very oily and I'd get cysts and since I've been taking one daily I'm experiencing dry skin and haven't had a cyst since.

 

 

What brand of probiotics are you taking and what dosage?

 

I was using "Now probiotic 25 billion" I would only buy a kind that requires refrigeration if you are going to purchase some.

Saw palmetto-Took a while, but it helped. I also added fenugreek and stinging nettle. Not a huge difference. Girls-my northern ladyparts got bigger so that was nice. Not by much, just fuller. No complaints about that side effect. :)

 

Peppermint tea- I don't know if it was drinking a ton of this or cutting out pop, but it helped. I'm back to drinking pop, but only one every other day. I just couldn't hold out any longer. I like bubbles with my dinner. But I'm glad I went a couple months pop free. 

 

Lemon oil- worked like magic for me because it dried my skin out but not in a terrible way. But turns out I'm allergic to several plant and fruit based products. I can eat it, I just can't put it on my face. 

 

The most recent thing I did was simplify what I do to my face. I forced myself to eliminate all unnecessary steps. It was extremely hard but I'm past the adjustment phase. I just asked myself what was imperative to do and i came to the conclusion that I need to 1) clean it and 2) medicate it. No more toners, or masks, or moisturizers. And now I no longer blot. I'm still oily by the end of the day, but it's not nearly as bad as it was. Since I know oily skin comes from within, I believe the reason why this is working for me is because I'm not scraping off every last skin cell anymore. So my face "appears" less oily. I'll still work on finding the internal fix, but for now, I consider this a victory.

In my experience, only vitamin A from fish oil will work. Be careful with this, and get regular blood tests :).

Seborrhea is oily skin and vice-versa.

Hi, I've been reading these forums for a while, but first time poster.

I got my first blocked pores when I was 10 years old, and it got a lot worse during high school (oily skin, blocked pores, acne on my face and other parts of my body).
When I was 19 I researched what I could do, went to the doctor and asked to be put on Diane 35 (cyproterone acetate), and he also put me on low dose doxycycline tablets, and later topical erythromycin when I'd been on the doxycycline for too long.
By the time I was 22-23, I was able to stop using the erythromycin as my skin was staying clear with just the Diane 35.

Unfortunately recently (now 25) I had to be taken off Diane 35 because I was getting migraines with aura. My skin's oil production has shot through the roof again and I feel like I'm back to where I started years ago. I'm using the erythromycin gel again but it does nothing for the oil production/blocked pores and thus part of my acne.

I would love to find something natural that can help me (even mildly) long term without negative side effects. I've been looking up antiandrogens and found a study and other websites about peppermint/spearmint having antiandrogenic effects. Licorice is another one I've seen mentioned. Has anyone had any positive experiences with either of these or other things that I could try that are relatively cost effective? The reason I'm interested in antiandrogens is because the Diane 35 worked well. I'm looking into spironolactone but I'm not sure how difficult it is to get here.
Thanks very much. Female BTW :)

Here's the link that summarises the studies on peppermint/spearmint hormone interactions.

Abstinence from orgasm is a proven way to cure oily skin.

Get out of this topic. Now. Don't bring this new-age nonsense here.

 

Here's what abstinence from orgasm has been proven to do: nothing.

^ Abstinence from orgasm makes you stressed out! and we all know what that does for our skin. Where do people get this idea? It always makes me smirk, but honestly, it's sad to think that girls out there might be finding another reason to feel bad about getting off because of this. 

 

It's not true. So go, release some tension, and forget this myth!

do retinols and stuff not work for oily skin? i couldn't tolerate tretinoin cream as my skin is too sensitive and i never stopped breaking out. but i remember it took my skin to desert dry levels. even being off the cream two months my skin was still super dry. back then i was wishing i had my oily skin back because dry flaky skin felt so much worse.


Became 100% clear with The Regimen starting June 2014. Stayed clear until Oct 2014, I'm now experiencing harsh, dry winter weather and I've had to cut back down on BP. Currently recovering from an irritation/dryness breakout.

 

  • Current (winter) Regimen
  • Morning:
  • Dan's Cleanser
  • Lac Hydrin 5 Lotion (small amount in dry areas)
  • Dan's Moisturizer
  •  
  • Night:
  • Dan's Cleanser 
  • Dan's BP (1/3 a finger length)
  • Lac Hydrin 5 Lotion
  • CeraVe Moisturizing Cream
  • 80% clear

No external treatments will effectively treat oily skin. It must be treated from the inside.

Of course, you can try and it will work to an extent, but all topical treatments are only a band-aid really.
