Simple Fix for Oily Skin

Support Healthy Estrogen & Androgen Levels: https://bit.ly/2q2QO1m Take Dr. Berg's Advanced Evaluation Quiz: http://bit.ly/EvalQuiz Your report will then be sent via email analyzing 104 potential symptoms, giving you a much deeper insight into your body issues. It's free and very enlightening. Dr. Berg talks about a simple fix or correction for oily skin. You have a situation of overactive sabaceous glands pumping out sebum. This is because of too much androgen hormone. You can take zinc to lower androgen. But whats really behind this problem is either too much stress or too much insulin. The adrenals and ovaries make androgens. Fixing insulin resistance can really help your skin. There is a natural concentrated pytonutrient called DIM which can also support healthy androgen and estrogen levels. It's great for PCOS and supporting healthy skin.

Hi Dr. Can I buy your DIM from Amazon? ?
BVBY TULIP (6 months ago)
Hi Dr Eric! Do you think you could help me. I am at a good weight and eat very healthy. I went to the doctors a year ago and they checked my hormones. Every thing was balanced except my androgens were slightly high. I never missed my period and didn’t have cysts, they checked my adrenals glands and everything looked fine so they told Me i did not have pcos and I’m not insulin resistant. I started taking reishi mushroom and tea for my liver and it helped my skin a ton. I went back to the doctor and they told me my androgens were now normal. The problem is although my androgens are normal and I’m eating healthy I still break out (just not as bad) and still get excess hair growth. I would also like to mention that I have had weak digestion and it seems I’m not digesting properly. Please Help Me! I have had this issues for 7 years. I also did a Candida cleanse and began taking probiotics and it helped but I still have the issues.

Thank you for this video. About two weeks ago, I researched my excessive oily skin because I knew something wasn't right. I read about androgens and bought DIM. I didn't know about zinc or about the adrenals and I am actually very stressed, so it makes sense now!

I've been struggling with oily skin for years and I hate it. This is the reason why I have white heads that never go away on my nose and cheeks. I have done research on oily skin and have tried to find the cause, with no luck. so, this is very interesting. I've tried niacinamide, vitamin d3, vitamin A and L-lysin with no luck. I've also tried zinc, but the problem with that is that I don't take it everyday or often because it's 50mg tablets and it can lower copper levels. Plus I feel so bad after, like throwing up. Along those lines. I also tried hemp seed oil, which has a good balance of the omega 3s and 6s. Some days is worse than others, but I've had no luck so far in a consistently reduction of sebum production :/ I'll give this DIM a try. Hopefully it helps.

Drumroll418 (1 year ago)
Wait, wiat, wait... Testosterone is an androgen. Zinc is said to RAISE testosterone. Zinc deficiencies have been correlated to lower testosterone. Yet, you say zinc LOWERS androgens. Seems counter to the previous statement. Also, if zinc DOES lower androgens, I'll take a little oily skin over not having low testosterone then. I dunno, seems a worthy trade-off.

Every advice for a healthy "diet" ends up being: intermittent fasting, low-carb/high fat/high fiber diet. And it surprisingly works!
Susan Bame (1 year ago)
Dr. Berg, I've become obsessed by studying moringa over the past couple of weeks.  It's amazing and so full of nutrition and healing, in any form -- fresh leaves, pods, dried leaves, moringa oil, even the waste product of moringa processing is beneficial as a water purifier!  I'd love to see you do a video about it.  Listening to your conference call from today I hear you recommending cleansing the liver for help with lipomas.  My dog has a growing lipoma and I've wondered what to do to help him.  Moringa, I see, is good for liver cleansing; I'm going to try adding moringa to homemade (organic) food for him for a month and see how that goes.   Moringa...and while you're at it, ashitaba.  Good stuff!

I've got worst case of oily skin you can imagine :( It's my worst insecurity when it comes to appearance. Have been trying many different tricks to minimize this problem for last 10 years (turning 22 today). Unfortunately without success. It's been my first month on keto and IF. No big change so far. Will try zinc or dim and see what happens :P If this works, Dr. Berg will officially be my love and savior forever.

Hey doc... ive heard a lot about dim and the benefits. Whats a good dim supplement to get? Ive lost 40lbs so far doing keto/IF.. and have hit a point where its slowing down... but have also noticed what seems like estrogen dominance features like lower body fat.. will dim help with that?
CJCSDGirly (1 year ago)
Oily skin was passed down by my mother to me and I don't think of it as a bad thing at all; yes annoying sometimes, (because I need to wash my hair every other day) but, I'm very thankful and very blessed to have super oily skin because it keeps me/ you looking young/youthful. I look well over a decade younger due to my oily skin. You didn't mention the genes aspect of oily skin though. You're right though Doc because I only eat once or sometimes twice a day and eat very little if any sugar and my oily skin has definitely decreased lately. :)

How much zinc should I be taking?
Melanie Gibson (1 year ago)
One of the pros about reaching menopause is that my skin is less oily and it does not break out as much the way it did when I was younger and at the mercy of my hormones. I do still tend to break out a bit if I have too many carbohydrates or especially sugar, but nowhere near as bad as I used to. Now my skin seems to vary in its oiliness according to the season. My hair seems to be doing the same thing. I will look into the DIM supplements, though, because I am having other hormone issues that I could do without and prefer not to take any medication, which is why I refrain from mentioning this to anybody with a prescription pad.

Would taking DIM then affect a man who's trying to bulk up with some muscle? Since it surpresses androgen which supports muscle growth?

Use retinol on you’re skin, take care of the sun
Christina Marie (1 year ago)
Some of it is just genetic. Certain races, especially with deeper skin tones, can be very oily especially from the neck up, even if their bodies are dryer. It actually helps the skin look younger as we age, so it's not a bad thing, just annoying, especially if you wear makeup often. Just a splash of water and blot drying throughout the day can be good, and like he said, don't overwash as many people are tempted to do so.

Wouldn't DIM affect ones thyroid Dr.Berg because I remember you mentioning in one of your videos that crauciferous vegetables affect ones thyroid hormones? I am confused ...

Wow! This makes perfect sense to me. I’ve recently been eating in a surplus, so I have been eating more often in order to fit in all my calories. I have noticed that my face has been oilier & shining more, even with the winter weather setting in. This answers the question i asked myself only yesterday!!😃 THANK YOU. I think I’ll reduce my meal frequency & see if it goes back to normal.

im confused how can zinc reduce androgens if zinc is also supposed to be pro testerone/masculine hormones ?
Drumroll418 (1 year ago)
Without healthy levels of dihydrotestosterone, the sex drive (especially in males), will plummet. You need it. Maybe not too much, but I wouldn't go just willy-nilly assuming it bad by default and trying to reduce it at all costs. People assume that testosterone is what causes the sex drive, and it does in a way, but that's BECAUSE you need testosterone to convert into and have dihydrotestosterone at all.
The real MacGyver (1 year ago)
ok and now ? that would contradict our dear dr. or is testerone not an androgen
Alexandra Palma (1 year ago)
Zinc inhibits 5-alfa redutase, which is an enzyme that converts testosterone into dihydrotestosterone, so taking zinc will increase your testosterone. 😘🇧🇷

Fascinating! I have the oiliest skin (great for anti-aging; bad for aesthetics). I've recently been tested for Addison's (and every other disease imaginable) and apparently my adrenals are "fine", but I find I only feel best when I eat one meal a day (OMAD) or at least less frequently. My skin has become less oily and it becomes especially balanced (no oil) when I'm doing a juice cleanse. Thank you for this gem!
Devendra Singh it’s not for anyone. No matter who you are, lemon juice can cause hyperpigmentation and sun sensitivity, which can cause a chemical burn.
Devendra Singh (28 days ago)
+𓊈 𝐀𝐬𝐩𝐡𝐨𝐝𝐞𝐥 𓊉, lemon juice is obviously not for everyone. If it has your skin then don't use it.
Devendra Singh maybe not. Lemon has the capacity to burn the skin and make it sensitive to sunlight, and a lot of people with acne find that coconut oil is highly comedogenic.
Devendra Singh (3 months ago)
*) Use bounty tissue for wiping the skin. *) Wash skin with lemon water (lemon juice mixed with water) or wash with warm water and a cleanser. *) Cut down on fatty, oily/fried and sweet/sugar foods. *) Mix some baking soda with lemon juice and coconut oil for cleaning and exfoliating skin.
