Sebum over production on scalp and nose

Commented on August 29, 2013
Created August 01, 2013 at 12:17 AM

What can be done internally for this. Right now im following pretty much a paleo/Ray peat type diet of mostly meat and fruit (melons). I had a low vitamin D level at my last check up, right now I have a pretty deep tan so it should be climbing up (was 29 at last check.)

The only dairy I eat is gouda cheese for vitamin k2, however I have gone without dairy for years and still had the sebum issue.

Instead of going cold turkey, try switching to a sulfate-free shampoo and washing your hair just a little less frequently. It did wonders for me.

I switched 2 oil cleansing for my face, I use 75% castor oil & 25% jojoba oil w/3 drops nice smelling essential oils. I got my info from this site: http://wellnessmama.com/7569/oil-cleansing-for-naturally-perfect-skin/ And a few other sites. Instead of olive oil I use jojoba as it is the oil that most closely matches our natural sebum. After cleaning I use a few drops of jojoba as moisturizer. it takes a few days but the oil production will drop. As for the hair there are a lot of "no poo" options for people with oily hair but they do take time to turn your scalp around.

Ouch. Sounds like me. I did have a very rough transition period. Mine took about a whole month of every five days hair washing for it to even out. My face is better, but I do get the occasional zit/blackheads. The oil pulling really helped. Instead of sesame oil, though, I used coconut.

I cut both out for a month. During that period i got so much oil on my scalp that i developed welts that itched... some kind of infectious process feeding of the oil. It was literally like my scalp was covered in oil, as in dipping it in a bucket of olive oil

Up your veggie intake. Also, look into oil pulling. Sleep around 10 o'clock at most. Do you wash your hair with shampoo everyday? Do you wash your body and face with soap everyday? Try to cut these frequencies down. This is what helped me.
