Been on the Regimen for 8 weeks, nearly clear from active acne. Ive always had oily skin, but since the regimen, i think its gotten worse, maybe it just naturally happened? Im so done with my oily face, i need to do something, im desperate. What can i possibly do or take to finally lower my body's oil production and make my face not oily anymore, or at least reduce the oiliness?
Im taking these supplements every day: (also in signature)
- 1000 IU Trader Joe's Vitamin D3
- Target brand (up & up) Zinc 100mg
- 16,000 IU Vitamin A
- Trader Joe's Synergistic C Vitamin C Complex 500mg
- Trader Joe's Natural Papaya & Pineapple Enzymes -2 tablets- not really for skin, more for digestion
- One A Day VitaCraves Gummies + Immunity Support -2 gummies- more as a general multi-vitamin
- Schiff Digestive Advantage Probiotic Gummies -2 gummies- more for digestion
I want to add in Vitamin B-5 and possibly Fish oil for Omega-3, will those do anything to help oily skin not be so... oily? I heard B-5 is good to lower skin oiliness, not sure about Omega-3 though. What can i possibly do or take to finally lower my body's oil production and make my face not oily anymore, or at least reduce the oiliness?
Any help? Thanks
