That's interesting. I have extremely oily skin. I hear that if you don't moisturize, the skin will produce more oil. I also hear that if you moisturize, it makes it oily, too. So I don't even know what myth to believe in. But my skin, moisturized or not, it's oily. Some people say that overwashing your face causes oily skin, too. I wash my face twice a day. If I reduce it, say, wash it once a day in the morning, then I get really oily at the end of the day, I skip washing and let the oil sit on my face for 8 hours when I'm sleeping until I wash it next morning? I dunno, I feel uncomfortable and my face is too oily if I don't wash it at night...the cavemen regimen would be out of the question for me.
I'm also currently taking Omega 3 supplement, I wonder if that helps minimize oil production.
