  1. Hey guys, sorry for the delay, but here’s what I’ve been working on lately. I think you’re gonna find it interesting - I think before we can get into any remedy for oily skin, we have to figure out what the actual problem is. Oily skin is commonly defined as this - “Oily skin is characterized by an increased amount of lipids on the skin surface due to overactive sebaceous glands”. This makes it sound as if the issue is the sebaceous glands being overact
  2. Any updates to share with us OilyOneCanobe on how your skin's doing these days? Sorry to hear that OilyOneCanobe! I’ve been following a pretty fascinating rabbit hole for the last few months. Still plenty to discover, but getting to some very interesting conclusions. It started when I asked a relatively simple question - Is oily skin even a skin issue? Sure, your sebaceous glands are going crazy, everyone knows that. It’s even re
  3. Any updates to share with us OilyOneCanobe on how your skin's doing these days?
  4. Hi paigems, There's some good material earlier on in this thread that may help you, just read through from page 1. There's a strong chance your body lost it's ability to process fats. Slowly, over time, your stomach acid has decreased and your bile has thinned, and now anything you eat that involves bile is met with resistance (or a stress response) from your body. There are some good suggestions given earlier that would help this out. To steer this conversation back to what it was, I alway
  5. Love this OilyOneCanobe! CoA is definitely on my list to explore...
  6. It's probably because you're hung over and your vision is impaired I really don't have an answer for it. I can guess... maybe your alcohol consumption is causing a drop in blood sugar, which effects your body's sebum output. Are you hypoglycemic by chance? Just a guess, but I'll think on it and see if anything else comes to mind.
  7. Hi Exning, If you're looking for a DIY option (cheapest!), I'd purchase something like this - https://www.amazon.com/Natures-Answer-Alcohol-Free-Green-1-Fluid/dp/B004GWASAU/ref=sr_1_5_a_it?ie=UTF8&qid=1501860188&sr=8-5&keywords=green%2Btea%2Bextract%2Bliquid&th=1 It's STRONG! So you'll have to dilute it with a carrier oil. If you have oily skin, make sure you stick to the oils high in linoleic acid, like grapeseed, hemp, rosehip seed, or even pumpkin seed. Mix 5 to 25 drops
  8. ImTheTinMan, I recommend reading this entire thread. Start at the beginning, and by page 4 you should be getting a lot of great ideas about how to get a handle on your oil situation....
  9. Hi WarrantedAide, Everyone will respond differently to protein, so you have to find the one that work best for you. If you have low cholesterol, you may benefit from eggs (especially) yolks. It doesn't take much either, so a couple bites of shredded chicken, low sugar protein bars, organ meat jerky, nut butters (not peanut), etc. will all do. This article talks a little about what to do for low cholesterol - http://www.beyondmthfr.com/protocols/cholesterol/ The thing is, when your body i
  10. Oilyonecanobe, Your hero's journey and willingness to bare all, good and bad, to the world is inspiration to us all. You may feel like you haven’t accomplished much, but you experience something that many people are still desperate to achieve - ANY results at all. Just because you haven't reached the top of the mountain, it doesn't mean you wont get there. For me, the holy grail or (top of the mountain) when I first set out to “solve” oily skin was understanding something I refer to as “
  11. Another update! Hopefully anyone that's followed along with all the suggestions so far, this next update just adds to it. While trying to figure out why someone was experiencing extreme oily skin despite a good diet (fish, veggies, no sugar, no processed anything, etc.), the issue seemed to be an inability to utilize the good fats in their diet. Even after adding supplements (like beets, ginger and ACV), there was no improvement. Something didn't seem right, so after investigating, the is
  12. Ok, reporting back on some interesting hormone findings... First, the connection between diet (carbs) and exercise is important - http://supernaturalacnetreatment.com/insulin-important-acne-hormone/ Second, resetting your body's response to stress - Saw palmetto controls the conversion of testosterone to dht inside your body, which will lessen the amount of oil on your face because of there being less dht, but it may not be the best plan of action for helping oily skin. Green tea extrac
  13. I believe daikon and beets do slightly different things, but both seem like they can be of benefit. Daikon helps to stimulate bile production and eliminate fats, while beets thin bile, so their duties are slightly different. Both beneficial, but thinning bile seems to be important for oily skin. However, you should try it out and report back what you find out. I would not consider kirkland brand high quality, just because it's more of a mass produced product with unspecified content. It's alw
  14. Hi Sunny88, I don't have a recommendation in mind for grapeseed oil. You can probably find a high quality one on Amazon for not a lot of money. Try to get organic if you can. At this stage of the game, the green tea extract is far more important than the carrier oil you place it in. You are correct in the process for making it as well. You should only use it on the oily areas of your skin, as it can dry out other areas. Just remember, if you don't try and fix the fatty acid absorption is
  15. Feeling heat with HCL means you're probably not deficient in stomach acid, which probably means your most likely breaking down fats appropriately. It's still odd you react to omega 3 in fish oil, but that could also be the brand of supplement you were taking, as many brands of fish oil contain rancid oil. If your diet contains good fats and limits bad ones, then the issues probably are hormonal in some way. Since your oily skin is regardless of weather or probably what you eat, my guess is th
