  • I have oily skin. Should I get a face gel?

    I would not. For those with oily skin the only really effective treatment is a course of isotretinoin which will temporarily make the dryness part worse but will permanently fix the oilyness. Gels and other products for oily skin are just marketing fluff that make a lot of money for companies that make them and doctors that sell them. READ MORE
