Figured out my problem....now what to do?

Recommended Posts

I'm starting to come to the conclusion that I break out on my forehead because it's such an oily area. That perhaps is the sole reason. And I really have no idea where to start in terms of getting rid of this excess oil. Please point in the right direction.

I have no clue what topicals you are using right now, but Benzoyl peroxide will dry out the skin and take away the excess oil.

Most nights I put on Evoclin, and whenever I'm at home during the day I put on Aloe Vera for my red marks. I really doubt either plays a role in the extra oil.

You could use oil blotting sheets. Thats about the only thing that I know of that isn't a cream or anything, that will take away all the excess oil.

I use them all the time, but quite frankly, I'm tired of having to blot my face in public several times. It's annoying and embarrassing.

You can try eating healthier, like cutting trans,sat fat,etc. Try zinc, b-5 supplements. All of the things i listed failed for me, so i am just using oc 8.

as far as the bp "taking away the oil" as that guy put it, i highly doubt that.

I wouldn't use blotting sheets. they take away the oil but clog pores. i broke out terribly when I used those
