My face has been oiley for years and I finally found a cure. I have tried everything and imean everything from blotting to mattifiers to lotions. nothing worked. Now for the cure, Fish oil pills twice a day. Thats it Fish oil pills no new soaps or washing or anything. Take a pill simple as that. I take some pills from walmart they are 1000 MG Enteric Coated Fish Oil. Coating helps with the taste. Brand is spring valley. It only took like 4days to see results my oil has been reduced 90 percent. I have been doin this for about three months and it still works. All though if you do stop taking the pills the oil still comes back. Hope his helps let me know if it works for you. Good luck.

So why fish oil? I have a bottle of cod liver oil in my fridge, and I tried taking it for a few weeks. I didn't think it did anything though. Do you know why fish oil helps reduce oil? I have oily skin as well.

I'm a vegetarian- would flaxseed work the same or does it have to be fish oil?

The one thing I know a lot about is finance not Fish oil all I know is it works. Not sure why or how, but frankly I don't care cause it works for me I usually take 1 in the morning and one at night but if I forget I iwll take them both at the same time. Not sure if flaxseed oil will also work.

My friend, I want you to think carefully about something very important: the high-powered drug Accutane profoundly reduces sebum production by as much as 90%, just like you're claiming for your fish oil pills. If fish oil really were as effective at that as you claim, don't you think that EVERYBODY would already know about it by now? wink.gif Your claim just isn't credible...

I just came across this article. Enjoy.

Article: How To Use Fish Oil To Help You Stop Acne - by Rudy Silva


If you want to control acne breakouts, you need to supplement your diet with fish oils which contain omega-3 and omega-6 oils. These fish oil also contains EPA and DHA fatty acids which are necessary for creating prostaglandins.

Normally, enzymes in your body break down omega-6 into DGLA, AA, EPA and DHA fatty acids.

Dihomo-gamma-linolenic acid (DGLA)

Arachidonic Acid (AA)

Eicosapentaenoic Acid (EPA)

Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA)

These four fatty acids eventually change into prostaglandins.

What are prostaglandins?

Prostaglandins are chemical hormones that come from omega-3 and omega-6 oils and that help,

regulate every function in your cells and organs.

Postaglandins also keep androgen hormones in control so that excess sebum is not produce in the hair follicle, which results in acne.

This is the reason why Essential Fatty Acids – Omega-3 and Omega-6 – are critical foods to eat.

However, eating plenty essential fatty acids may not insure that you produce enough EPA and DHA, which produce the essential prostaglandins.

It is critical for acne and more importantly for your health that you get enough EPA and DHA in your cells and organs so they can produce the required prostaglandins.

To increase the prostaglandins in your cell walls, it is necessary for you to take a fish supplement, which contains both the EPA and DHA.

Of course eating salmon, halibut, and mackerel twice a week will be a plus in providing your body with more EPA and DHA.

Here’s what I use daily. Spectrum Essentials puts out an excellent product called

Omega-3 Norwegian Fish Oil

Two capsules contains

EPA – 360mg

DHA – 240mg

Omega-3 – 892mg

Stearic, Lauric, Palmitic Acids - 508mg

Using the Omega-3 Norwegian Fish Oil is critical in getting relief from acne, so take two capsules per meal.

When your body creates prostaglandins, it creates a good prostaglandin and a bad prostaglandin. Here’s how to encourage the production of good prostaglandins.

·Maintain a ratio of two times more omega-6 than omega-3 in your diet.

·Eating too much omega-6 can lead to producing excess bad prostaglandins.

·Take a multi-vitamin and minerals with your meals to provide these nutrients for breaking down the

essential fatty acids into prostaglandins

·Reduce the amount of meat, saturated fat, dairy, and eggs you eat to reduce the production of AA, which blocks the activities of the good prostaglandins

·Eat cold water fish at least twice a week to provide EPA and DHA to your diet

Include at least 20% of your diet calories as good fats – omega oils and fish oil. This is essential for controlling the excess activity of your hormones and reducing the inflammation of your acne.

Hey, do you think Salmon Oil would work as well for oily skin? I know it helps calm inflammation in acne and contains a lot of zinc.

well i guess that would be possible if ALL humans were the same. but my friend, the truth is were not all the same. we may all have the same cock and pussy but were not that genetically the same. we respond DIFFERENTLY to e.g. drugs, supplements, etc.
