Oily skin tricks

Common Questions and Answers about Oily skin tricks


Avatar f tn Now in the 3rd trimester I'm blowing up with acne and itchy skin all over and my usual skin clearing tricks aren't working. I'm hoping it's like all other prego stuff and it will subside in the weeks following birth.
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.
186606 tn?1263513790 Then about halfway thru treatment I found goatsmilk soap in various scents (for a while there I felt like I had leather for skin, it was sooo rough) and it took away the dry skin. I found a lady nearby that makes it but you might be able to find something like that at a natural food store or on the internet.
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!!!
1145811 tn?1293485957 Another trick for using less shampoo is to get in the shower and use no shampoo and just massage your scalp well. Dry scalp becomes less dry and oily scalp becomes less oily with this tip. I'm not the one who came up with that one. I forget where I saw that. It might have been an infomercial or something. Nevertheless, this tip definitely works. If you have dry scalp and hair, you can use coconut or olive oil for deep oil treatments and leave in conditioner.
Avatar m tn I posted this info before, but it was a reply to someone else's similar post... I am a 23 year old healthy male. I recently had a full physical and the results were that I am in above average health. I have no diseases, do not use drugs, but drink on occasion. Anyways, just started noticing these strange symptoms, within the past few weeks. Nothing "brought it on" so to speak that I can tell of.
Avatar n tn I have extremely sensetive skin myself and had to resort to baby lotion and shampoos to keep me from overdrying my skin. Many lotions make the skin oily rather than truly moisturize. Cetaphil is a good lotion, but I use Aveeno baby lotion. It seems to do the trick. What soaps do you use? Dial AB or Dove, ?? ?
Avatar f tn I used soap on my back I figure pimples are from oily skin so if I dried out the oil they would go away, I have always used soap on my face aswell has worked better than any pimple face wash I've ever used as a teenager I had really bad skin but my dad told me just use a bar of soap and I've never had a problem since :)
Avatar f tn I was going to pick some up, but I don't want my skin to be oily all the time. Does it absorb quickly? That's my main thing, I want to combat stretch marks but not be oily or greasy.
Avatar m tn I also applied some Peroxide on them and felt a little sizzle as I applied it. Im on day 20 and all thats left is a pinkish stain like what new skin looks like. I have not had contact with anyone who showed cold sores or given oral sex to anyone or even shared a glass not even someone who has a history of Herpes nor did I feel the Prodrone stage of a cold sore. No tingle or pulsating and even after i tried to pop them I got no oozing or weeping crusting or chaffing.

Avatar n tn It also helped minimize my pores. Don't use more than once in 3 days as it does contain chemicals that can irritate your skin if used too frequently. I also recommend Neutrogena Pore minimizer. It is a clear mask you put on after washing for a few minutes then wash off with lukewarm water. Last, but definitely not least, drink water. A good 6-8 glasses a day also made a marked difference in my skin. Good luck.
Avatar n tn However, I am having preg symptoms again right now. Real tired feeling, can't sleep, oily broke out skin. Took pg test and says neg. last time we BDed was on Jan 8th, day before I started spotting. Sorry this is so long but any thoughts would be very helpful? Thanks! Prayers with you all....
Avatar f tn I had a couple of weeks in January where I felt my forehead had severe sunburn, and my once oily face is no longer that oily. Something I do not seem to have at this time (whoo hoo-something I don’t have) is any skin issues/tightening etc. and no swollen hands or feet. This morning for the first time I believe I might have had a color change on my right hand fingers while driving to work. I got into a cold vehicle and even with the gloves on my hands started to hurt a little.
Avatar n tn I have been red all the time for the last few years and I am older, oily skin, no acne. My dermatologist just diagnosed Rosacea. I have Metrogel and hav seen quite an improvement in almost 2 weeks. She wants me on it for 2 months and then she'll check. Hope this helps.
280418 tn?1306329510 For the past 32 years, I tried everything from over the counter to prescriptions, nothing worked. I am fair skin, have oily skin. I believe I have found something that worked. For the past year I have been 95% acne free here is my story. I now use these over the counter products, Apple cider vinegar as a daily face wash, I dissolve about 5 aspirins as a paste and use it as a mask for ten minutes daily. I also stopped drinking milk, milk produces hormones that can cause acne.
Avatar n tn I've dealt with this all alone long enough and I was wondering if there was anyone else who has it? Are there any other tricks of the trade to deal with this awful disease!!?? thanks alot!!
544292 tn?1268886268 I had to use my hands and arms to get up out of bed. My body has been pushed as far as it will go. So after trying all my best tricks (aminos, coffee, food, vitamins, water) I finally stopped the struggle and called in sick for work. Tomorrow will be a busier day anyhow. I've called in alot this month and last obviously because the taper made me sick and then cold turkey made me sicker. My coworker asked me if I wanted her to stop by my house with pain killers. Um. YES! But no.
Avatar n tn I've had eczema in my ears for 15 yrs. It is very cyclical, starting w/intense uncontrollable itching, then clear fluid leaking from skin, followed by crusting over & flaking of skin in ears that is itchy in & of itself, leading to more scratching & picking at ears. The skin in my ears gets very damaged and ratty during outbreaks. I also have swelling of the ear canal after these itch/scratch episodes that are sometimes quite painful, & Motrin helps that.

Avatar n tn It acts as a water barrier and foams a little when in contact with water and so it cleans at the same time. I use two towels. One to get most of the oily substance off my skin ( don't rub, pat) and the second to pat myself dry. Then I immediatley use a good skin lotion , more fatty than water, get dressed asap as it helps if the skin is enclosed. I cut showering down to 2x a week. Eek!! The rest of the time I simply wash the nec. parts. It really helps a lot.
363243 tn?1331037450 Hello everyone, I hope all is well. I was just diagnosed with PCOS although I've had symptoms of it since I was 12 (hirsutism) and I am now 36. My hirsutism was diagnosed as idiopathic because the testing I had did not indicate an elevated testosterone level. I don't know if the testing is more sophisticated now but I had new testing done and it did indicate that my free weak testosterone was elevated.
Avatar n tn I notice that when running, sweat is sometimes highly irritant and causes my skin to really burn. I would say my skin has a tendency to dryness, with very mild eczema. I think this is behind the root cause of my eyelid problem (rather than any blocking of oil secretion ducts around the eyelids as with blepharitis. I read the following web page which had some useful information about dry skin, particularly the issue about a lack of specific nutrients.
Avatar f tn AF wants to play evil tricks on you because it's the one time you dont want her to....it's really stupid. I am sorry :( And thanks for the list. I agree with Jenny...makes me feel more like talking about ttc which is what we are all kind here for!
Avatar n tn I am getting some minor bleeding when I poop due to the tears in the anal area. The entire vaginal area is very itchy and if I scratch or rub the skin at all I often give myself one of these tears. It seems as if the skin is very thin. There are no other symptoms that I am aware of. I have had blood work and a biopsy done. Some of the things that I was tested for were; genital herpes, lichen sclerosus, lichen simplex chronicus, lichen planus, vulvar vestibulitis.
Avatar n tn After some time I start noticing smallest of smallest sounds around me, anything at all. Fabric moving on my skin makes me feel that something might be crawling. And in no time my heart starts racing, I start getting confused that what is happening with a feeling of suffocation. What solves the problem immediately for me is getting out of the bed and sitting in front of my computer and watch just about anything (preferably comedy).
Avatar n tn *I avoid soaps in my vaginal area. I use baby wipes for sensitive skin around my anus and labia before showering and just dont use soaps on that area. *I use same baby wipes after sex. *I've been wearing looser, cotton only panties (BORING!) and avoiding thongs at all costs. Love thongs but how unsanitary, really!? *When it's really awful I use hydrocortisone cream but try not to use it often, as it's petroleum base can provide a good place for yeast to grow.
Avatar n tn Wondering if my girl gave it to me an on and on and on. It's funny how your mind can play tricks on you because this has been going on with me for some time now but more so lately. I know one thing obsessing over it makes it worse.
Avatar n tn They are from Poland and have fewer chemicals and no colors so and they keep my skin moist and less wrinkled. I actually wore a bathing suit last week to help my grandson in his swimming class and my daughter said WOW Mom you look great. I am pumped. I love this protocol.
