I'm thinking of trying the beta carotene,  what dose should I start with? Thank you. X

I recently got so fed up with my oily skin, and started looking for supplements that would help. I found that B5, and Vitamin A have been shown to help with slowing down oil production. So I've been taking those supplements, and trying to drink more water to flush out my system.Also found a really gentle cleanser that doesn't irritate my skin at all and actually makes it feel hydrated. So far I feel like the oil production has decreased dramatically to about 65%-70% percent less oil. 

Yes, B5 and A will reduce oily skin. But usually the dosage of either needed to do this is dangerously high and comes with a risk of hair loss, kidney and liver damage, and adrenal system fatigue. Be careful.
Change the vitamin A to beta carotene and increase ur zinc intake if possible from natural sources.

I suffer from very oily skin, my face gets oily 30mins after washing!

The only thing that has worked for me is Accutane. I can't be on it for the rest of my life. Hence I'm on this topic, I wish everyone luck in finding a solution for oily skin. X

In Topic: I'm Trying Different Things...

Just a little update...

I can see that my new routine is helping, I'm getting less new spots/pimples. I have made a slight change in routine as I'm getting a slightht tingling/burning sensation on my face but I still use the aspirin and witch hazel toner twice a day but I now only use the epiduo every other night to see if it will help. I have only missed one night, so I can't feel a difference yet.

I still have very oily skin, I'm blotting and using powder to control it as best I can. I'm very self conscious about it but I know here is not a lot I can do, apart from going back on Roaccutane, but I'll be able to get another referral next year but I don't really want to go back on it again. We'll see, I'm goin to keep looking for something that will help reduce the oil.

I hope everyone else is having better luck than me. Xx

I too suffer with extremely oily skin, currently in my 5th month of Roaccutane and am wrried about what will happen when I get off it.


The one thing I know is that I cannot change my DNA, therefore I will have oily skin for the rest of my life, popping pills will only give a short term solution. My oil production is like jellyfish, when they feel threatened they produce more jellyfish. I have tried a ridiculous amount of products, natural and home remedies all to no avail. :(


I have found paper to be the best blotter, sucks up all the oil and keeps it at bay for a good while. Tissue and blotting paper is a waste of time for me.


The thing to remember is that we are all different and will not have exactly the same reaction to things as everyone else. So we have to keep trying different things and hopefully will stumble across something that will help.

I'll share my dry nose tip. I get a cotton swab roll it in vaseline then swirl it around the inside of my nostrils. Gets right up there and no more dry crusty nose. :)
