Common Questions and Answers about Oily skin remedies


Avatar f tn Okay, I posted for dry skin, and got asked for oily skin. 2 teaspoons of dry oats(oatmeal) grinded Splash of witch hazel to make a paste Once again, apply warm water first to face, then apply the paste as much as needed. You can leave it on for a few or rinse it right off with warm water. Do this once or twice every other day or every two days.

Avatar f tn Second baby was a boy. Had no greasy hair nor oily skin. My third was a boy and had no greasy hair nor oily skin. Im thinking im having a girl because her hormones and mine are raging. I feel so ugly. 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.
Avatar n tn As your skin is oily yet sensitive, over the counter remedies are likely to irritate your skin with limited benefit. Make an appointment with your doctor for oral antibiotics such as oxytetracycline or erythromycin and treat your oily skin from the inside. If you are female you can also reduce oiliness by taking an anti-androgen contraceptive pill like dianette (called Diane35 in the USA). While you wait to see your doctor try the cleanser and toner for oily skin by Estee Lauder.

Ever since pregnancy my skin has gone crazy, I tried better make-up (improved a bit) but my skin is still oily without it.

Avatar n tn iv used many products to try to get rid of my oily skin but nothing works. after washing my skin it gets very oily, mainly on my nose within the hour. i want to know what kind of face wash i could use to solve my problem. im not looking for somehting expensive or that i have ot order online. im tired of always having ot use those oil absorbing sheets.
Avatar n tn Hi, Oily skin may be inherited and affected by hormones, stress and wrong cosmetics. There is no specific treatment for oily skin but here are some home remedies that may help with your problem. Wash your face with warm water and plenty of drying soap. You don't have to buy the expensive type. Make sure you use plenty of the soap and scrub the skin. Clay masks or mud masks may also help temporarily. Masks can cleanse the skin of surface greasiness.
Avatar f tn 1 year after having my baby, my skin has gotten oily and I have really big pores (Some redness, Maybe because of inflammation?) In the morning when I wake up the oilliness on my face is at his worst. My hair is also oily, and I suffer from hairloss. I can't put on any makeup since it just comes of 1 or 2 hours after I apply it on my face. The worst part is the burning sensations in my face. Could you please tell me what's going on?
Avatar f tn I am a 25 year old normal healthy person. I have suddenly gotten oily hair on the crown of my head even right after showering, and no matter how much I was my hair it will not go away. It has lasted about 2 weeks now, and seems to be getting worse. I have never had extremely oily hair, and I know it is not because I am washing my hair incorrectly. Has any one else had this happen, and how long does it usually last. This discussion is related to <a href='http://www.medhelp.
108334 tn?1253647995 Sometimes, they aren't ingrown hairs that I can pop, but they're under the skin and feels like a hard little ball if you push in on them. I've had one on the inside of my thigh for the past several weeks and it won't go away. Is this a boil? It doesn't really hurt, but what do they do if they "lance" it? Will they get bigger if you don't get it removed?
Avatar n tn Lately, however, my skin has been VERY dry (seeing as it's winter in Minnesota). But at the same time, I have extremely oily skin, which I usually blot once every hour (but I don't need to as much lately). So I'm very confused as to why my skin is very oily yet very dry at the same time. I use cetaphil to wash, olay to moisturize, and sometimes even olive oil as a moisturizer (I heard it's a good natural product).
Avatar f tn I also have very oily and dry skin. My face produces a lot of oil in a day; by midday my face is very oily and shiny, and I’ll need to wipe off the excess oil. And I notice a lot of dry flakey bits (skin or sebum) that will rub off at my problem areas. I have provided some pictures, here: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1rG2hdGbWoBq1pwGL6t5XTxQgfAsLyzsd?
Avatar f tn Lemon, grapefruit, tangerine and orange, helps treat oily skin without the worry of harsh ingredients coming in contact with the skin.
Avatar f tn I dont remember the last time i had a pimple let alone multiple. Now my skin is so oily and i can see blackheads on my chin and forehead. I stopped using my nightly washes bc of the chemicals. I currently use clean n clear for sensitive skin and cera ve lotion. I need something stronger but safe! Im willing to mix random things up at home if anyone has any good suggestions! Thank u!
Avatar f tn After doing some research, I believe it is an over production and build up of sebum on the scalp. I have had acne problems, have rosacea, and my skin and hair is very oily. I found balancing shampoos on line that are supposed to prevent sebum build up. Aveda is one of them, but I haven't tried it. Sebum: substance with an oily consistency produced by the sebaceous glands. It lubricates hair, is an antifungal/antibacterial, and imparts waterproofing properties to the skin.
Avatar m tn I am a 50 year old female with extremely oily skin. I've had this problem since I was 12. I was wondering if anyone could tell me if they have taken ultra low doses of accutane to help control the oil production and if there were any side effects they experienced at this age.
Avatar f tn Because that is what causes the stretch marks when your skin stretches it breaks the skin cells and causes the skin to be damaged and well stretched. so there are some things that can help with stretch marks and to help prepare your skin for the change. Olive oil is a well known remedy that helps your skin transition as the baby grows and your skin stretches.
Avatar f tn I have no idea how to get rid of it, nothing is working for me. I've tried some of the remedies on here.... I have never had oily hair, so this is really FREAKING me out! I can't look like a greasy mop at work and in the schools. What do I do?
Avatar f tn I have heard that Skin So Soft lotion (not oil) from avon works. If you buy the lotion, and mix a small portion of it with water, and then spray it on your dogs fur, it is supposed to repel fleas, ticks and mosquitos. It's better than the oil because it doesn't make your pets coat oily. I haven't personally tried this, but I know a few people who swear by it. Not an all natural product, but safe according to the vet used by the people I know.
Avatar f tn I'm at 32 weeks SOC treatment. I've had lots of problems with dry skin, itching, etc. every since beginning treatment. I've been washing my hair much less often, but have been able to continue using hair color until the last couple of months. The last time colored my hair it's like it burned my scalp. Obviously, I won't be coloring my hair anymore until treatment is over, but does anyone have any good remedies for putting some moisture back into my scalp?
Avatar n tn If you see white stuff in the stool, take it seriously and get a clinical lab diagnosis on Candida / yeast overgrowth - Do not waste time with homeopathic solutions you see on the internet. Do not waste time with herbal remedies, probiotics, enzymes etc. such weak remedies will increase your discomfort anyway as candida is still taking you hostage. When these weak remedies upset them, candida will upset you. Even Kefir will discomfort you and you will never understand why.

Avatar f tn I have never had any problems with oily skin or oily hair ever. I wash my hair daily and condition. I have not changed my daily regimen in 2 years One thing I have tried was applied Shower to Shower powder to my hair before going to bed and washed out in the morning (not the sexiest looking thing at night but it helps). It drastically reduced the oil, but came back 2 days later. The only thing I worry about is clogging the glands that are producing the oil, so I don't do it daily...
Avatar n tn It can be caused by heredity, diet, hormone levels, pregnancy, birth control pills and hot and humid weather. Oily skin needs special cleansing with plenty of hot water and soap to prevent the pores from being clogged. Avoid harsh products that strip your skin of oil and encourage flakiness. They can cause a reaction known as reactive seborrhoea, where the oil glands work overtime to compensate for the loss of natural oils.
Avatar n tn my facial skin was very soft , fair and little oily till last month , but after that my skin became very dark and dry so can u please tell me the reason and home remedies to get rid of it? thank u.
Avatar f tn I'm going on a strict skin diet now! My skin condition is really so bad as I have oily and sensitive skin:( anyone knows whether is it possible to get flawless skin if I eliminate: white grains, white bread, chilli, fried food and dairy products? Oh! Is yogurt harmful too?
Avatar f tn I would think that with one of the main symptoms being dry skin that would not cause acne because that is from oily skin(I think). Good luck and take care.
Avatar n tn I am a 29 female and have never had this happen before. I have oily skin/hair naturally, but nothing like this spot. I decided after reading several posts to try the Tea Tree Shampoo and Listerine combo...I used Amercian Crew Tea Tree Shampoo and 3 caps of genric Listernine. I left both in my hair for several minutes before washing out, and it worked 100%. The spots is gone...thank you everyone!!!
Avatar n tn 1. I'm 30 & have very oily skin that gets red and breaks out, treated with nearly everything in the past including Accutane. Now I just use Clearasil cream at night and that keeps it mostly under control; and I drink lots of water, avoid eating much oil/salt, take B vitamins, use oil-free moisturizer and gentle soap, and remove makeup with lemon juice. I use MAC blot powder & oil free makeup & have tried many oil control cosmetics.
2040468 tn?1330993569 Before I started taking birth control, I was fit and had clear skin, though I’d always had problems with facial oil. Once I started the pill, I immediately started gaining weight, got bad acne, and started growing facial hair, especially on my chin (and this is dark, coarse hair, even though I’m naturally blonde). I changed pills, and then stopped taking birth control, but things didn’t go back to normal.
