Hi Terry, “I love your newsletter and look forward to it each Friday. I appreciate all the education and news regarding health and nutrition. I have a question regarding my 17 year old daughter’s skin. It is very oily and all the different creams and toners we bought don’t seem to reduce the oiliness of her skin.” Elaine T., Dearborn, MI A. Dear Elaine, There are a number of things I would do to reduce excessive oiliness of the skin. I would reduce all grains containing gluten and dairy foods. Butter and eggs are okay. Also, avoid soft drinks and sugar in any quantity. There are two nutritional supplement recommendations as well. One is to improve fat metabolism, which is normally under the control of the liver and gallbladder. Therefore, I would recommend artichoke extract, a tablet of 320 mg and/or curcumin, 375 to 750 mg with each meal. The other recommendation is a good B-vitamin complex, 25 to 50 mg per capsule, 1 or 2 per day. I like 2 per day, since the B vitamins are water soluble, meaning they go through the body quickly, so spreading them out during the day is more effective.
