When My Skin Is The Oiliest

10 posts in this topic

When I'm at work, my face doesn't feel oily. In fact, it looks the best at work. It could be that I'm keeping myself busy. However, my skin becomes oily the more I'm at home (watching tv, computer, etc). Whether it be at night or if I home for the day.

You?

I think our skin feels most oily when we are conscious of it. So yeah, when we are at home bored.

If I go out socialising with friends, I never even think about my face or feel a drop of oil on it. When I'm at college on the other hand sat in a warm room all day, it feels like an oil slick. So I definitely agree with what you are saying.

When I'm at home my skin feels really oily, itchy and I just want to go upstairs and wash it!

My skin is least oily in the morning and most oily at night. It might have something to do with my eating a lot and raising my hormones during the day.


How I Stay Clear:

  • Accutane 5mg/day
  • Probiotics 25 billion organisms/day

For me, if it's dry and cool out that's when I get the most oil. Sweat seems to counter-act the oil for me, so on hot days I am actually the least oily

My skin is oiliest at night usually, especially after work and it is extremely oily when I'm tired. If I have had a good nights sleep and feel pretty refreshed, then my skin tends to look better. I break out more when I sleep terribly, too.

I noticed I get the most oil production when I am in school, especially when I have to wake up early.

It's kinda strange... like I definitely feel I look better if I can wake up in the afternoon VS wake up early in the morning, even if I do the exact same routine.

Also being under the sun or bright light makes my skin oily :X

My skin feels the oiliest when Ive been in humid weather especially if its hot, or in a really stuffy humid room. No saunas for me...

I also have a vascular disorder which affect the blood vessels, going back and forth from the cold to hot or air conditioning to heat is painful for me.

Since Ive been taking yaz, my skin is a lot less oily than it used to be.

Yes, it seems that birth control is one of the few things other than Accutane that can minimize oily skin. Major bummer that men can't use it at all lol.
