So this is what worked for me in a few months for controlling my oily skin, I'll keep it simple:
30 mg L-Optizinc, 500 mg of vitamin B5, 500 mg L-Carnitine and 25000 IU of vitamin A. Each one of them twice a day, morning and before bed.
It took about 3 months to work full force, don't expect an overnight change or even changes in weeks. Also, try to do regular blood-checks for the vitamin A. I know it's dangerous, but I think it's worth it when you have an horribly oily skin like me. Everyday life is way better now that I have an oil production like other normal people. No more shiny greasy looking face, no more blotting like a weirdo in front of everybody.
Good luck to everyone .
Nice, wish this could be accomplished without the Vitamin A though. Why the L-Optizinc? Never heard of that one....
I would be a little worried that Vitamin A would irritate my eyes. I currently deal with dry eyes from having had LASIK surgery last Nov.
Also, isn't Vitamin A considered an anti-testosterone or something? Have you noticed any sexual side effects while mass dosing on Vitamin A?
