    Ugh... Sebum!

    Is there anything which is proven to slower down the sebum production. My scalp and face get so oily. Its unbelievable. I'm sure there is something out there which can help. Especially around my ears and my temples. I could just press down on those areas and feel the oil. It feels horrible. Can anyone give me advice on what I should do which may help?

    Thanks

    I've been doing research on mega-dosing vitamin B5, aka Pantothenic acid.

    Some people take 10 grams(!) a day... I'm going to try working up to 5 grams per day and see how that goes.

    Re: Ugh... Sebum!

    -Panthotenic acid (b5) 15 to 20 mg a day. You can buy it in bulk and put them in capsule by yourself because this is the worst tasting **** on Earth.
    - MSM 5-10 grams a day. Sulfur help a lot. Pretty cheap everywhere.
    - Omega 3 twice a day. Good quality one ( High in EPA DHA)
    - Good multivitamin with a complete B-complex vitamins in it.Not some ****ty Centrum. All the B's, Niacinamide, Chromium and Biotin.

    If nothing work just add Coenzyme A and a good Probiotic to the cocktail.

    Your complexion and hair will see a radical change.

    15 to 20 milligrams a day? That's not very much!
    1) No, damnit, finasteride for hairloss was NOT an "accidental discovery".
    2) No, you do NOT have to use minoxidil and Retin-A at the same time.
    3) No, washing your skin does NOT make it produce more sebum.

    Get dairy products out of your diet! Research the relationship between dairy consumption and sebum.

    When I got dairy and other fats and oils out of my diet, sebum production was completely haulted! Also wash your hair with ketoconazole shampoo, it is shown to reduced the sebaceous glands by nearly 20%!

    And if you want to take it a step further get meat and fats out of your diet and increase your dietary fiber consumption.
