Doctor insights on:
Is There Something I Can Put On My Face To Make It Less Oily
Yes: There are lotions/creams designed for use on the face available at pharmacies that are less likely to cause acne (the term is "noncomedogenic"). It is best to wet the skin with warm water before applying the cream so the moisture can be "trapped" by the cream. However, if the "dryness" doesn't improve, gets worse, or develops redness/pain, then see your physician to be sure it isn't another issue. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Do potato chips and milk make the face oily? My skin has gotten oily and the only thing that I could think caused it was my diet. Or is it stress?
No: One usually cannot blame oily skin on foods or drinks unless the oil goes away when a particular food is stopped, and returns when the food is resumed. Potato chips are unnecessary and can be stopped, if one wants to see if that helps. Milk is important for calcium, vitamin D, protein... meaning milk shouldn't be stopped unless one has a good substitute. "Stress" can lead to a variety of symptoms. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

The skin on my knees is so dark these days, it's really annoying me and I am ashamed of it. Is there any way to make them look lighter?
Sun block is key: Skin lighteners such as kojic acid, hydroquinone, and plant extracts should only be used if proper sun protection is used. Over the counter products are safe and generally contain 2% kojic acid which limit their effectiveness. They work by blocking the production of melanin which is the natural pigment in the skin cells. Always check with a dermatologist to make sure there are no contraindications. ...Read more
Genetic: Always use a gentle cleanser since harsh soaps can trigger the skin to increase oil production, if a basic facial cleanser doesn’t cut oiliness, try a product that includes an acid such as benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid, glycolic acid, or beta-hydroxy acid, make sure to wash with warm water, not hot, because temperature extremes can irritate skin.Let me know if this doesn't work :]. ...Read more

Make-up fix for oily: I recommend Colorescience skin mattifying or skin balancing primers. Both are great for oily or combination skin, minimize the look of pores and fill in lines and wrinkles. Make up sits well over the primer and you end up with a matte finish that lasts. Check their website for a place near you, so you can try it out. ...Read more
