  1. Going by what you've just posted it seems incredibly obvious that it's the BP. Maybe you've formulated your post wrong, but what else could it be? Your skin goes red when you use BP is what you're telling us.. so surely you've answered your own question?
  2. It does dry out the skin actually. I have no proof per say. I'm talking based on experience, I moisturize afterwards. Drying out the skin is not the same as making it less oily. In fact, drying out your skin can be dangerous. But it has no effect on sebum production. This type of advice helps nobody, to be honest.
  3. Clay masks make someone's skin less oily? Any proof for that?
  4. I don't think there is any proof whatsoever that this works. Don't really see the point in posting these types of comments, to be honest. I know you're trying to help out, but suggesting methods that don't have any realistic chance of working is quite pointless and, in some cases, dangerous because the methods could actually cause damage.
  5. Apparently MoM is very bad for the skin. It's pH levels are way too high. It works great, though, but apparently it's really bad for the skin.
  6. Having just read most of this topic, I really, really wish people would pay more attention when typing out the amount of iu's or mg's they are taking. So many people type an 0 too much or too little or get the maths wrong. I'm glad people are willing to share their information but it's annoying when one time they say it's 10,000mg you need to take, the other time it's 1000mg.
  7. I'm not sure if Milk of Magnesia is good for the skin, I read something about the pH levels being way too high for skin. Anyway make sure you look in to it, might be damaging your skin.
  8. Good luck! Please keep us up to date on any progress, I'm sure a lot of people on here would really appreciate it.
  9. The internet is filled with testimonies of people who have tried Retin-A creams and every type of cleanser and moisturiser you can think of and still they have "plugs" or blackheads. I don't really see the point in stating it like it's a fact, when there's very little evidence (that I know of) that suggest it's a fact.
  10. Hello mate, Have a look around in the rest of the oily skin forum, there's a couple of good threads on "proven" solutions for oily skin (I made one and a fella called fredthebelgian made a couple too). The one currently being tested by a couple of us is an "overdose" of vitamin A. Anyway I can guarantee you it's not because you smoke da herb
  11. Could you tell me how much you took? And how was your oily skin before and after taking it? Cheers mate
  12. Hey man, I only just saw you posted in this thread! Good luck with accutane, keep us updated if you can! It is fairly minute compared to cystic acne. But Accutane seems to be the only thing on the planet that can get rid of the problem. That in itself is a bit strange, if you ask me, but there you go. Using a cream would be pointless for me, seeing as it wouldn't stop oil production and it would make my skin even more sensitive to the skin. And sadly, pore strips are pretty much useless as
  13. Maybe applying Borage Oil or Vitamin E (buy capsules and pinch them open) on your skin will help? Good luck mate
  14. Looks like telangiectasias/dilated blood vessels. Have you used IPL or pulsed dye lasers at all? No I haven't. I maybe should've added that I only get these 2 spots once every couple of months, mostly when I get dry eyes or extra dry skin
  15. Whenever I get a seb. derm. flare up, Nizoral cream really works well. Thing is, I've had those red spots maybe 10 times in a year. Only once were they as bad as in the picture. I can eat tomatoes, hot food, hot drinks, etc without flushing/blushing. I have no idea what those spots are but it doesn't sound like rosacea when I look at the signs and symptoms of rosacea. I don't trust specialists anymore, either, the ones I've gone to were fucking useless. Pardon my French.
