What are all the known causes that result in oily skin?

Recommended Posts

For me dry skin causes excess oil production. The only way to fight oil is with oil in my experience. Its sounds counterintuitive at first but it works.

I read a study recently that found that with high levels of linoleic acid (found mostly in vegetable oils) in the body resulted in a higher conversion of testosterone to DHT--and higher DHT causes more sebum production, or so goes the theory.

Just one way diet and lifestyle has an affect on acne.

So does this mean the pure enu oil I am using to moisterize with (which has linoleic acid in it)

Will cause my sebum production to increase in a bad way?

I thought this oil was anti -inflammatory, and good for acneic DRY /SEVERELY dry skin like mine?

Or should I just stick with jojoba oil?

I've read the opposite including this study: http://www.hairlossinformation.com/hair-lo...hair-loss.shtml
