oily skin, oily hair. People want to expose you, poke fun of you, etc.
Okay, really serious question here, but like I was born with and have really oily hair and face. I can wash it and it will stay oil-free for a little while. But honestly, it used to take me three hours to get ready, and that was because it took so long to strip my skin of all the oil while I was in the bathtub, and shower, plus shaving, and makeup, but mostly, it takes, or it did take a long time to strip the oils from my skin. It was literally layers upon layers and it would take a while and actually be exhausting to get ready.

Here is my question. I look really good with my hair and makeup done. My body looks nice. I can dress nice if I want to. Etc. BUT I have had people purposely try to expose me. Because I look like shit whenever my hair and face gets greasy looking, like it's really bad looking, etc. It's like caked on grease. Are they just trying to make fun of me? Poke fun of me, etc. What is the point in exposing someone's flaw?

Now, to a certain degree, I thought, well, maybe they don't want me to be able to put on a front, and pretend like I'm beautiful, and this and that, and really to a big degree, I think that's it... They think they're exposing me as a fraud. She's not really beautiful. She's got acne and oily skin and oily hair. Etc.

Maybe they want to expose me because they think I'm competition.

1.) Now, I've had my mom arrange a "surprise" birthday party and she lived with me and knew how long it takes to strip my skin of all this oiliness, now maybe she wanted to embarrass, or shame, me and wanted, me to take 2 (3 hours showers a day)! I thought about that! Maybe she and other people know my capability of what I can look like when I fix up, and want me to look like that, all the time, and are trying, to expose, embarrass, and shame me.

They just don't realize or understand from my perspective. They have no idea how long it takes to get this grease off my face. It's exhausting, and it has lessened over the years, as I have gotten older, and when I was in junior high, at it's worst, thank God, I had basketball, and I was able to take a shower during lunch, and no one missed me, or was the wiser, and thank God, because my oiliness brought me so much shame. No, I didn't want people to know and understand! I just wanted to hide it, and maybe that has been the wrong thing to do, because people seem to think I can do more about it, than I actually can, to prevent it. It's like they think it's laziness, but it's actually a real problem. I'm just too ashamed and embarrassed to talk about it, and want to ignore it, like it's not there. It's a really big problem. But, like I said, has lessened over the years, so thank God!

2.) There was this one girl who saw me after I got out of the shower and she laughed and laughed and took pictures of me, because my acne was bad, and with my hair wet... she thought I looked like night and day compared to when I was fixed up... She just laughed and laughed. Now, why did she do that? Was it because of jealousy or insecurities? She was feeling relived that I wasn't pretty, because she was jealous of me, and felt insecure, before finding out my flaw?

3.) My cousin, even tells all my boyfriends, that I don't look like that.

4.) I even had a boyfriend who was taking pictures of me without makeup on to show me that I didn't look like that. In other words, I don't look the way I do in pictures without my oily skin being washed of oils, etc.

5.) Another cousin (the first one's sister) didn't want me to be allowed to wear makeup to a water park. She went on and on about how you shouldn't wear makeup to the waterpark, but it was just about exposing me, and not wanting me to be able to put on a mask. Makeup is a mask, but why shouldn't I be able to wear makeup and cover my acne?

6.) In school, my mom would drive me sometimes, and she would keep telling me to hurry up, and that I wasn't going to have time, and that I needed to get ready to jump out. The truth was that she wanted me to stop putting on my makeup, my mask, because I don't look like that without it, and she wanted to expose me. We had the same amount of time to drive to school every morning, 15 minutes, but she would start to rush me after about 7 minutes in the car, or whatever, I mean, I know how long it takes to get there, and I knew the location, and how far we had to go.

7.) Oh, biggest kicker of all, my mom dragged me out of the house, to expose me in the sunlight to my boyfriend, because I had waited way too long to wash my face, and it got really really oily, and she said, a hurricane was coming, and kept rushing me to get out of the house, ands wanted to expose me, and as soon as she did that, 2 minutes later, after exposing me, she was done, and she said, it was okay, to go back in the house, she just wanted to expose me to the neighbors, and my boyfriend. I just do not look the same, fixed up, and when all the oil cakes up on my face. Without this problem, you have no idea what I'm talking about, the oil will get so bad, it will be on the eyelids and get into your eyes... really... so it's pretty bad. And like I said, with the amount of time, it takes to get the oil off your skin, once you're in the bathtub.

It started out oily in junior high. Then, it progressed to oily and acne in high school and throughout my early 20's I really didn't want to date. About 25-27 it started to clear up with acne, because I started not wearing makeup, except special occasions because it breaks out my skin... clogs my pores combined with the oiliness is not a good effect... and now, I'm 32. I still break out occasionally, but I can get it to clear up for periods. So, it's much better than before, just still oily, but not as much so.

Oily skin may be the result of MERCURY POISONING.
Mercury is excreted by the skin through the oil and sweat glands.

Mercury is 50 percent of silver fillings.
It is also found in most fish.

It is also found in anything that comes from the seas, including things like Calcium supplements.

Other toxic substances can also be excreted by the skin making it more oily than usual.

Re: oily skin, oily hair. People want to expose you, poke fun of you, etc.
Insecure and emotionally stunted people are the ONLY ones that highlight insecurities of others in front of others. Unfortunately, most people feel bad about themselves subconsciously and spend most of their energy looking for that in others and seek to expose and destroy them.... it's like a way to punish someone else for their own buried issues. It took me along time to recognize that this is how it really works. Healthy people respect others and focus on lifting them up... healthy people understand that positive, compassionate energy and respect is key to interacting with good people.

I am 36. I previously suffered oily skin/hair. Similar to how you described yourself, I looked great with makeup and taking extra care of my hair, but I felt hideous without makeup because the oil made me feel gross. MANY females face simular issues, but you would never know from the effortless-looking filtered pictures they saturate their pics on Facebook with. I work at a med spa and, TRUST ME, the 'hottest' clients tend to have to get the most treatments. Everyone has imperfections they work to manage. Never feel the need to explain or justify how you pull your game together. You get to keep that all to yourself :)

Why not forget about the need to attract the biggest best deal male of the species and do something useful? Be a scientist or an inventor. Ignore the built-in biological clock. No woman needs makeup unless they are in the media or are a pr0n star.

BTW... Hourglass is a brand sold at Sephora and they sell a primer to compat oily skin. It's AMAZING. I use that and Nars eyeprimer (oily eyelids here too) and those 2 products have changed my life. They ACTUALLY keep oil at bay. They are expensive but I allow myself to splurge on something that works.... just offering what helped me.

You are male. You see women in makeup and 90% of the time assume they aren't wearing any. Men only seem to notice heavy makeup. Women do benefit greatly from a few products geared towards their skin type. Most women don't wear it for men... they do it out of self care. It's like wearing deodorant. Women's grooming is very different than mens.

And, BTW, hugs to you. I appreciate your honesty.
This seems trivial to many, but I also suffered and it drained me. It REALLY can dominate your life. You are not alone hf

Because war paint is easier to wipe off of the skin than the sheets I'd suppose.

Females wash their face at nighttime and usually apply a moisturizer or treatment product. If ANY makeup, no matter how minimal, is left on the face over night it clogs pores and prevents cell turnover... which leads to dull looking skin.

Not all ladies have a lot of nonsense to wipe off... but maybe the women you see before bed like to wear what you consider a lot? Some women look worse with makeup and others seem to really benefit from it. Working in the skin care/med spa industry, I learned a lot

Do you think it's possible that your excessive washing is what's causing your oiliness? Accept it, girl! You're still beautiful no matter what. :)

Re: oily skin, oily hair. People want to expose you, poke fun of you, etc.
To people with only hair, it might be time to reconsider how you're washing your hair. I'm not an expert. Everybody's different and what works for me might not work for you. But it's worth researching just to see if it might be something that does work for you.

I've got hair (on my head pervs!) to my ass. The length always looked normal, not oily or dry. But the scalp was what was getting on my nerves. It'd look like I dipped my head in a damn potato chip bag even though I wash my hair every other day. I'd get these white flakes (not dandruff) and those would drive me crazy as well.

Anyway, point of the post is I found I can't use shampoo anymore. I use a tiny bit of body wash (less than a tsp) that has avocado oil + 2 tsps of sugar to make a scrub for the scalp. And then I use a baking soda/water mix after I've washed out the scrub. Wash it out and put conditioner on my length. Wash it out and then I get this empty container to soak the length in so I get out every last bit of conditioner.

My hair doesn't shed as much using this method. And no, my hair isn't sticky and it doesn't stink. There are people out there that use vinegar but my hair didn't really seem to like that. You just gotta play around and see what does work for you. I'm still washing my hair every other day but sometimes I can skip a day and it not as gross as it would if I was still using shampoo.

You probably have an overloaded liver combined with hormonal imbalance and estrogen dominance. Oily-greasy hair and skin is the result. Your androgens are no doubt unbalanced.

Suggestion: take liver cleansing herbs like DIM, milk thistle and dandelion. Another suggestion: Follow with androgen balancing herbs like maca, flax, etc. Drinking ACV tonic helps flush liver also. A nice side effect is that cleansing the liver clears up acne. Clean up the diet too. Fast food grease literally stresses the liver and will show up on your skin as oil and zits.

Drink lots of clean water with herbs to flush through system and remove toxins from body. Eat lots of veggies. Less fruit.
