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

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

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

Bumping this up a bit again. My skin is much less oily lately, but sebaceous filaments are still a major problem for me. I also have a hard time not picking at them...

Are you sure your "sebaceous filaments" are not keratosis pilares?

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