The persistent creation of oil on somebody's face is likely to be an issue that she seeks to fix. Excessively greasy facial skin is sadly very easy for others to notice, especially on the forehead where the shine is particularly prominent. Washing properly by making full use of specially formulated, oil-reducing soaps and shower creams is certainly helpful, but not to the extent nutrition is. Although all vitamins and minerals demonstrate a certain amount of skin-related benefit, it is vitamin A that is directly responsible for calming excess oil.

Step 1

Take a natural vitamin A supplement. The most popular synthetic form, which is generally included in most multivitamin pills, is called retinol palmitate. Avoid this type, as it is inferior to naturally extracted, food-state vitamin A obtained from fish oils. Buy only a pure and isolated product, which clearly affirms its origins. With this form of vitamin A, the degree of skin oil secretion will start to calm. An excerpt from Calvin Colleges website states "Vitamin A works against the androgens that are responsible for causing oily skin."

Step 2

Use your dietary supplement each day. Never miss a dose, unless there truly is no way at all to prevent it. Buy a pill organizer unit if necessary to enable you to dispense your capsules easily on a daily basis.

Step 3

Eat liver regularly. Include it in your evening meal at least once a week. According to The U.S. Agency for International Development "Because vitamin A is stored in the liver, direct measurement of the liver vitamin A concentration is considered to be the best indicator of vitamin A status."

Step 4

Cleanse your skin with enriched facial wipes. Vitamin A is sometimes included as a key ingredient in products of this type. Obtain these from most major drugstores and larger supermarkets.

Step 5

Remain patient as your skin normalizes. Undoubtedly, the oil production on your face will gradually settle down over time---but it is a progressive change. This is because vitamin A also exhibits other skin improvements besides oil reduction. George Broughton II, M.D., Ph.D and Rod J. Rohrich, M.D. point out "Vitamin A deficiency retards repair. Conversely, ingestion of vitamin A stimulates collagen deposition and contributes to increased breaking strength of wounds, while topically applied vitamin A accelerates wound reepithelialisation."
