    I know this is slightly off-topic, but I'm wondering is there any link between what you eat and having oily skin?

    I need to wash my face 2/3 times a day because it sometimes tends to get quite oily. I don't take any medication or use any creams for it. I'm just wondering though, does what I eat effect how oily my skin may get? Any link between junk food or oily food.. and oily skin?

    I think it's more hormonal. ^ Though, I can't see how cutting back on greasy food could hurt. :dunno:

    Two proven things I know help. Hydrate, & use a non-oily lotion w/ no fragrance. Because oily skin will secrete more when you overdry it. You don't want to irritate it with fragrances and garbage ingredients.

    Assuming you're a guy, I don't know if you'd go for this, but they now make these little packs of oil absorbing sheets that'd fit in your pocket.
    If you're worried about appearance. Clean, & clear makes some, they come in a blue packet. (not super girlie) :)

    yup, ever since i've started cutting again my skin is a lot clearer

    caloric surplus = higher hormone levels (including testosterone) = oilier skin

    Thanks dude I can give that a try :bigthumb:

    Sorry to sound stupid but what does caloric surplus mean? I'm taking an educated guess at a surplus of calories?

    My bad.. I was under the assumption that no females posted in this section, sorry! (and no i'm not sexist at all :p )

    Does it matter where the calories come from? i.e fats, carbs protein or can u can caloric surplus from anything?

    Caloric surplus just means you consume more calories than you use in a day. The excess calories will be stored as muscle/fat.
