Common Questions and Answers about Oily skin acne


Avatar f tn Mine was totally fine until I started my third trimester....now it's extremely oily and I have patches of flaky skin that are raw red itchy and very oily....does anyone have some clue as to what causes this and what will make it go away!!??
Avatar n tn My favorite ranges for oily skin are Effaclar by La Roche-Posay and Sparkling Clean by Estee Lauder. However, over the counter products may not result in total skin clearance. It is always best to see your doctor for a course of oral antibiotics and/or a topical retinoid.
6706619 tn?1391316843 its not a home remedy, but I had this same problem and tried so so much everything either made my skin too oily or too dry but I bought clean and clear advantage acne control, took the oily skin away, cleared my acne and made my skin super soft all the time!
Avatar m tn t use a soap that is too strong as it will cause your skin to overreact. Try to find a light moisturizer made for people with oily skin. I have read not to eat flour and milk but I do love my carbs. The final option that I found was to take and acne drug but I don't think this is the option for you if the oil issue has not caused acne problems.
Avatar f tn i have extremely oily skin and i think its because i use my acne medications such as differin and duac but even though i wash my face 3 times a daii it is still oily and its worse during parties because i cant wash my face then..? wat should i doo..any herbal remedies as well?
Avatar f tn Ive never had greasy hair nor oily skin or acne when I was a teenager or pregnant except with my first girl. I dont know what to use. My face is sensitive already so I use minimal product. I also usually have beautiful natural skin so I dont use makeup except a little bronze. If anyone has any home remedies or any similar issues, please respond back. My mom said it will go away at some point in my pregnancy. I pray. I feel so ugly and gross with oily skin and greasy hair. Thanks ladies.
Avatar n tn I was on Accutane at the age of 18 and within a year or two the oil and acne returned. I'm 40 now and have more oily skin than ever, with long term effects from the Accutane. I have given up on all things that claim to reduce oil- none of it works for me. I strongly believe it's due to hormones and am seeking out a natural hormone doctor that does bioidentical therapy. I am currently treating my acne with oil which may seem ridiculous, but it seems to be working.
Avatar m tn m 31 female have fair to medium skin tone, very oily skin( after lunch hours, can slide on my face a few meters it gets that oily), still suffering with adult face/body acne. Have tried numerous temporary acne remedies, presciptions, visits to derm:antibiotics, creams, gels, OTC acne creams/gels, Dairy free diet, lots of fresh fruits,veggies, Had major improvement with benzoyl peroxide but again it was a temp fix. I didn't want to be on B.
Avatar f tn I'm 18 years old, allergic to Parabens (which are in a variety of acne cleansers), have extremely sensitive skin, and can't take any hormonal treatments due to a blood clotting disorder. I've tried ProActive, Murad (which made my acne unbelievably much worse), Neutrogena Acne Solutions, and AcneFree, along with dozens of over-the-counter-cleansers. The only thing that seems to have an effect is Clean & Clear's Persagel, but that makes my skin very dry, flaky, and tight.
Avatar f tn Thank you loi, yes i want to lighten my oily skin but i also have big pores, closed comedoes, small acne and also wrinkle. Its so complicated. So i dont know how to treat them all together. What will happen if i combine the lightening cream with freederm? Should i use the birth control pills too? And about my closed comedoes, it remain as comedoes for years and feels rough! Is it comedoes or not?
5931867 tn?1397526593 I bought a new foundation and I hope it covers most of my acne but anyways has anyone experience breaking out so much early in pregnancy. I have oily skin but I never broke out so much like maybe a pimple here and there but now I have a lot of tiny bumps(mostly on forehead), dark spots all around but mostly in cheek area. If anybody had bad acne during pregnancy what facial cleaner you used that cleared up your skin.

Avatar f tn I noticed my normal/dry skin starting to become very oily. Now I have clusters of zits? Im 28 weeks now and 28 years old....anything anyone can recommend for skin care?

Avatar f tn I have acne on my for head which I've never had acne before and my skin is dry and I drink a lot of fluids everyday. Is this normal?
Avatar f tn Hi. Accutane results in a long term remission from acne, after one course, in 80% of patients. 20% (including myself) require a second or third course. Interestingly, the greasiness often returns without the acne after Accutane, so don't panic yet. I use a good cleanser for oily skin: Estee Lauder's Sparkling clean cleanser. I also use a topical retinoid called Differin (adapalene 0.1%). This product did not work for me before Accutane, but is now effective. Eloise.
Avatar m tn Hello. This might sound strange, but after testing myself for some time I can say, that ejaculation makes my skin oily and causes acne. After 4 days the skin gets back to normal (I've been testing this for several months and the results are always the same). I've read that the two things are not related, but my skin says opposite. I am 29 years old and have acne problem on my back, shoulders and neck, fortunately not so much on the face.
Avatar f tn Congrats on your pregnancy! What type of skin do you have? Is it oily? Sensitive? Dry? Acne treatment all depends on the type of skin you have. If you are oily, a good skin routine to keep your pH balanced and the oils controlled would work best. Sensitive skin types need to back off of the meds and treatments, as this can lead to even more breakouts. I'm a victim of this. I was oily at your age, but still quite sensitive.
Avatar n tn They gave me super super oily skin. I started using retinoids when I was 14 years old and my skin was normal except for acne, and now I"m 19 and I stopped using them. My skin was oily all through my time using the retinoids but now that I'm off them my skin is still freakin oily. I've been off the retinoids for almost three months now. It doesn't make any sense to me at all. Their is not a dern thing the dermatologist can do about super oily skin.
Avatar m tn Just because you have oily skin does NOT mean u do not need to moisturize... we with oily skin just need a different kind of moisturizer its very important. You will see a difference in the first week. Its been 2 months and my skin is not the same its freaking amazing.. and to think i went from cystic acne to this? ya pretty crazy.
Avatar f tn I never had acne in high school but it started when I was 23. I have oily skin and it leaves ugly marks on my face. I have it no place else on my body. I have been using all sorts of things for my face, not at the same time, but after I realise that the former one I was taking is not working. The best I have used so far were Retin-A and Dr Wexler's acne treatment which I found on bathandbodyworks.com.
Avatar m tn t seem to work lately i have been using unscented dove soap for sensitive skin it has halped get rid of most of my acne but left all over my face are dark spots from the acne. I dont get acne when using the soap wash my face 3 times a day but if i was to forget to wash it one of those time my face will become too oily and i will get more acne but right now i think the soap kind of has it under control and i want to know how can i get rid of my dark spots?
