  1. Unfounded? You already read evidence for it from bryan, I'm sure. It didn't reduce oil production. It acted via another mechanism. Why is that so hard to accept? I am trying it, actually. For almost a week now. I'm not honestly sure whether I've seen any results. My skin still appears to have quite a layer of greasy oil on it after a few hours. bryan is one of those people that can be best described as "misery loves company". Most of what he says is inaccurate and based of inconclusive studies
  2. ...Through one of the mechanisms I just used as an example? "It's possible the pH/acid mantle could play a role in your skin's rention of oil, the way in which light is reflected off your skin, etc." It's not unbelievable that your face was oily and then stopped being oily with the use of ACV. It just wasn't due to a change in oil production, it was another mechanism at work. Hahaha. Someone's testy! Then it might've had to do with the retention/absorption of the oil by your skin. Or some oth
  3. AVC had the most impact. You can use this alone in place of a cleanser. Start off with 5 parts water than 1 part ACV gradually increase to a 1:1 ratio. If thats the case why did I go 3 years without any results from going to dermatologists. Then within weeks of using ACV have the oil production almost stop completely. People like you are the reason others still suffer. The AVC didnt change the way light refracted off my skin, It nearly eliminated the oil production. As I stated in the beginnin
  4. It will help, but you are best using a toner to restore your pH. Within days of using ACV as a toner I noticed a difference, whereas using a cleanser it took months for me to notice a difference in oil production. Another note, I saw about 5-6 derms about what was going on with my skin, and none of them did anything that helped me with my skin. The oil production was insane and it only started after I was using harsh products and washing my skin 2-3 times per day. They all told me these things h
  5. I posted a topic in the oily skin section of the forums, but ill repost here since its relevant Firstly not everyones skin is oily for the same reason, It could be genetics, or it could be self induced. If its genetics, there isnt much you can do, im sorry, but the good news is for most people its self induced. If you use harsh products on your skin, then is most likely self induced and this is why. A pH level is a chemist's term meaning "Potential of Hydrogen" and is used to measure the degr
  6. http://www.makeupalley.com/product/showreview.asp/page=5/pagesize=20/ItemID=52238/ read the reviews here about ACV. There is almost 100% not just positive reviews, but 5 star reviews of how it helped them.
  7. you need to be extremely careful with appying anything acidic to your skin. It would be wise to invest in a pH tester. Keep the pH between 5.5-6, otherwise you risk damaging your skin.
  8. I believe you Murph. Some people don't have a clue, nor do they want one.

  10. And to bryan, you post count, and your activity on this forum shows that you clearly are still searching for answers, as in you have no clue what you are doing or talking about. And to others looking for answers, do you trust the person still searching or the person who has found a solution. The answer is clear. I solved my problem with oil, without taking accutaine, and I had said I would let the people here know how I did so if I ever did because I know what its like.
  11. Before you embarrass yourself further by talking about things you know nothing about, I strongly suggest again (like I did a few moments ago in another thread) that you put your own skin to a scientific test, and then post your results here for all of us to see. "Put up, or shut up", as the saying goes. Things I dont know about? Ive spend the last 3 years of my life dealing with this. My case was so extreme doctors had no clue, so I was left to myself to fix the problem. Every medication they
  12. Again I see this bryan person giving false information, I hope the moderators ban this guy. If your skin is tight feeling after you wash, yes moisterizer will help lower the oil production. Will you see a change overnight? no. Many people are expecting instant results, and im sorry to tell you, when combating oil production it takes quite a while to fix. Have patience.
  13. I rarely check these forums, but every time I do I see this bryan guy saying the same thing, washing doesnt affect oil production. *Moderator edit* Overwashing your skill will cause excess oil, period. I caused my skin to become oily by overwashing, and further prolonged the oilyness by overwashing. I realized this when I stoped washing my skin as much, guess what, the oil went down tremendously. Not trying to plug products but all I used was creave, no topicals, nothing. I did not blot my fac
  14. people need to be asking their dermatologist with these questions, I know people are trying to help but everyones situation is different and should be supervised by a professional.
  15. for the most part, only people with bad skin notice other people with bad skin.
