Just curious if taking MSM internally has made your skin on your face drier at all?

I've been taking MSM internally for about 2 months now. Can't say I've noticed my skin getting drier.
I do get dry, flaky skin on my nose and chin but that is largely due to dehydration.

I'm not taking it at the moment but have taken it before and noticed no changes in terms of oilyness/dryness.

Interesting that you ask, because I had never thought of it before, but my skin was really oily before and now it's not so much. But I definitely love how it has helped my skin, nothing has helped me with controling breakouts as much as this stuff...and just made my overall texture better too, I think...(oh and hair and nails grow faster too...: ) )

I must admit I am really intrigued by MSM. In my case if my skin was not as oily it would be wonderful.

I have tried milk thistle (to help with cystic acne liver detoxy) it seemed to help. I also have tried zinc (healing with pimples); not sure on that one.

I also tried Evening Primose oil and again not sure...

That reminds me - I think you're supposed to up your intake of water when you take MSM. Could this be related perhaps?
