Oily skin solutions for men

Common Questions and Answers about Oily skin solutions for men


Avatar f tn Using Cetaphil helps with the tightness, but in turn, makes my skin very oily. Living in Phoenix under the scorching sun makes me sweat a lot, which, in combination with the oily skin, seems to be making my acne worse. And it's really bad already. So, my choices seem to be dry & tight or oily, but either way I go, my acne doesn't improve. Any suggestions?
Avatar m tn Hello, I'm a 33 year old man, who has suffered from oily skin on my face since my teen years. I've tried many different cleansers. None of which seem to help. The more harsh cleansers obviously irritate my skin causing more redness and oil production. And the gentle cleansers such as cetaphil don't seem to improve anything. I was prescribed Atralin gel a few months ago. But this does not seem to improve my oil production.
Avatar m tn She has tried many medication but has not had any luck with it. She also has some acne scarring and has oily skin. She has tried using the following full course medication: Salcura Antiac Activ Liquid Spray differin Skinoren Salicylic acid Any help would be appreciated, thank you in advance.
Avatar f tn Hey, I have replied to a few other posts because I want to share what helped me with my mild acne. Maybe you really need professional treatment for your acne, but if you want to try something mild in the mean time, I would recommend Clinique's 'anti-blemish solutions', especially since your skin seems to be extremely sensitive. Clinique is know for being created for people with allergies. I'm 25 years old and I used to suffer from the same problem as you ever since puberty.
Avatar n tn Well I've had this reddish skin around my nose for couple of years, maybe less, but I can't treat it off. Since I have occasionally acne on my nose I've thought that it's just acne red spots that would go away eventually as the skin produces new layers, but it's not going anywhere.
Avatar n tn About 3 weeks after I started using it my skin changed. Now I rarely have any spots and my skin is neither oily nor dry, I only occasionally get a few spots when I have my period. So despite sounding like a commercial for Clinique: try it!
Avatar m tn i an a man. my skin is very sensitive skin. very dry and red t zone and very oily forhead and dry cheeks. what do you recommend?
Avatar f tn Hi. If your skin is oily use a good cleanser for oily skin such as Sparkling Clean by Estee Lauder. Over the counter acne remedies such as Clinique's Blemish Solutions (contains salicylic acid) may help. If not see your doctor for a course of oral antibiotics such as Oxytetracycline 250mg twice daily to kill acne-causing bacteria on the skin.
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.
7164766 tn?1391496656 Since I became pregnant there is a spot on the top of my head that is like waxy but dry kinda like if you sleep with mousse or hairspray it's on my scalp so it's hard even when I get out of the shower I can't do any thing to it it looks oily? Anyone else have this problem or any solutions I could do? At first I used bar soap and it cleared it up now it doesn't change anything help!
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 n tn rather then an oily face which is a breeding ground for dirt. powder dries up the face and pores. it really works for me!
Avatar m tn The dermatologist said my skin is too oily. I;m on my fourth day using the products. Has anyone ever used these products and could they cure my acne for good?
Avatar m tn I don't know which topic to put this under because I have no idea what it is. I want to stress how important this is to resolve, as it's been affecting my life for a few years now. I am very self conscious and i have actually held back from going off to college just because of this. It affects my life tremendously. When I was about 16 years old I started to notice that my nose was getting oily. I always dabbed it off. It started to spread to my cheeks as time went on.
Avatar f tn I have tan but oily skin. When ever I try a new brand its always gives me more of a pink tone when I really need a golden tan color. Anyone know of a good liquid & powder foundation for oily tan skin that won't make me break out it having oily skin? Also one that will last but I'm young so I don't need a strong cover up because I have no wrinkles.
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 m tn Its very frustrating because my diet is reasonably healthy, I drink plenty of water and clean my face with a regular face wash twice a day along with other topical treatments, yet I always seem to get breakouts and have no idea what causes it. My skin can be clear for as long as a week ( barely any spots) and in a matter of days breaks out in the areas outlined above. And they always seem to pop up after one another, I never get one pimple by itself, they're always in groups.
Avatar f tn What can i use for oily skin & some.breakouts..
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 f tn I am a 45 year old female. I have had good, clear skin all my life. Over the past 5 years I have developed skin problems. What I have is actually deep, hard clogged pores, not actually pimples. My skin is not oily. The problem seems to becoming from the inside. It's only on my face. Every one of them leaves a small scar on my face. My pores keep getting larger.
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 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 Sunblock is made in formulations for the face (with no or less oil), so again depending on whether your skin tends towards oily or dry, you have options.
Avatar n tn Thank you for your advise! I decided to have the mole removed. I have a new question that I feel confident you can answer. I have extremely oily skin. I have tried Retina A, and a sulfur wash. Neither one helped with the oil, they only made my pores appear smaller. My dermatologist suggested I take Isotretinoin. She said it will shrink my oil glands in my skin. I looked online and haven't seen any result to use this for treatment of oily skin.
