  1. I came across that article a few weeks ago. Deep down, I knew it was BS, but since I had MSM just sitting here, I thought I'd give it a try. I crushed up a couple of MSM pills- mixed it with water and applied it to my face, at night. I applied this ghostly white mask for approx. 2 weeks. After 2 weeks, I stopped because it was making me more oily than before with the added bonus of very prominent blackheads, which I don't usually have. Personally, I wouldn't bother with the cream. It may help
  2. Illogical? I have both dry skin and an extreme amount of sebum production. I'm pretty the sure oil I produce does nothing to moisturize my skin, otherwise I wouldn't have dry and flakey skin under the oil. dry flaky skin under oil? ..try exfoliating more.
  3. Thanks for coming back to set the records straight. Don't feel bad, many of us have started something that works for a while and then stops. I'm glad you found something that works for you. I'm heading out tonight to buy some tto. It may not work for me, but wth it's worth a try. Quick question- to curb oily skin, do you apply the tea tree oil, straight, all over your face? do you dilute it or what? thanks
  4. The only thing that worked for me was Accutane. After, my skin returned to a full blown oil well again. It's been 20 years of disgusting oily skin since. (no acne, though!) I never use moisturiser. Never needed it. I wouldn't be able to stand the addition layer of gunk and quite frankly dont understand why anyone with super oily skin would feel the need to slather more grease on their skin..it's completely illogical. Let's see..my skin is sooo oily and gross! let's see..I'll apply more oil, silc
  5. Hi JRK1, I see no one has replied to you since your post on Jan 8. I certainly hope you have decided to wash your face since then. I also have severely oily skin. Let me start by saying, Ive come and gone from this board since 2006. I'm sorry to say, It's a complete waste of time. Let's just say half of the cures and remedies are crap made up by kids. Especially the mega doses of vitamins & herbal suppliments which could be dangerous. It's like me coming here after sleeping with a clay mask
  6. Ichance23, you come here, boldy start a topic on how you CURED your oily skin with "500mg evening primrose oil twice a day!" yet, in your lengthy signature you state that evening primrose didnt work. Then you disappear. Nice. Things I tried that didn't work: -Duac gel (tried it for 2 months) -drinking Evening primrose oil and applying topically(tried it for 1 month -antibiotics (worst mistake of my life and ruined my immune system)
  7. I'm interested! Good luck to you, Airborne Helly!
  8. Good to know! and here all along, I thought my scars looked better due to failing eyesight
  9. Thanks for your response, jacecali. I hope the subscision works out well for you. I look forward to your future updates.
  10. since you don't know how to say it in english, yet your english is perfectly understandable..without going around in circles with a non-answer, can you please explain/describe what they are doing to your face? ..laser? subscision? needling? peels? etc. WHAT??? otherwise, I call BS as usual. Sorry.
  11. did this doctor advertise that he/she offered free consultations? are you by any chance in the Chicago area?
  12. was the product you used years ago, called seban? if so, it's still out there. I havent tried it, just read up on it. For your nose, try a thin layer of Unflavored Milk Of Magnesia under your makeup. Key word is- thin layer. I use it as a primer everyday, and it keeps the oilies at bay for a lot longer than when I dont use it.
  13. I haven't been on this board in ages, as I have pretty much given up on treating my severe scarring. This is the first I've heard of this Argent treatment. I just watched a youtube video on the prcedure and I am intrigued. I hope Argent gives the improvement that you are looking for! I will be following your posts and look forward to your updates! Good luck to you!
  14. Have you tried Almay Clear Complexion Makeup with salicylic acid? I have extremely oily skin too and it lasts a good 6-8 hours on me.
  15. Have you tried a clay mask? a good one I can recommend is Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay. It's a natural Bentonite clay that is mixed with water or apple cider vinegar. I have large nose pores too and this clay really does a number on temporarily shrinking them. I leave it on overnight, 3 times a week..while its on, I can really feel it pulling the gunk out and tightening. In the morning, I wash it off and my nose pores are noticeably smaller. NOTICEABLY. I buy mine at The Vitamin Shoppe for
