Eliminating Sebaceous Filaments Through Diet

8 posts in this topic

reducing refines carbs made my skin less oily

I notice the same thing, but I still have sebaceous filaments.

Reducing omega-6s in the diet and raising omega-3s may help.

I think my omega 6 intake is pretty low... omega 3s break me out like crazy.

Yeah, I'm pretty certain. They look nothing like keratosis pilaris.
