What facial cleanser is good for my skin type?


I have what you call "combination skin". Some parts of my face are dry, flaky, and oily. I also have blackheads and sensitive skin. I've tried St. Ive's, Noxzema, Clean & Clear, and Dove, but they made my skin irritated. Can you please tell me a facial cleanser that is good for my skin type? Or maybe a homemade scrub or peel mask?
----------

i like my burts bees cleanser because its natural and doesnt have those really long-named ingredients because those will cause you damage in the long run. all their products are at target resonably priced. hope i help!  (+ info)

Does anyone know any facial products that actually work for sensitive skin?


I have sensitive facial skin and have tried quite a few products on the market that my skin just doesn't agree with. I always come up with small rash type bumps, my face is never clear.
Can anyone with sensitive skin recommend a facial cleanser and moisture-riser that actually works for this type of skin?

Probably reacting allergically to lotions or the chlorine/fluoride that is being re-absorbed through the skin after the hot water washes out all the skin oils.

IF I may let me explain why if I were you I would make the choice to look for "toxic-triggers" and to reduce them in order to make the skin-organ stronger.

In the past I also have had many problems with asthma and with skin rashes and itchings. I have learned that all the things that trigger these problems are very very toxic to everyone's health and I have learned to ‘run’ from them.

I also 'eventually' learned that my nutrition was below what it needed to be, so that I could easily have an allergic reaction to something that was toxic, AND my skin and/or lymph and/or kidney and/or liver organs were not strong enough to deal with it quickly, so the rash/itchings were a continual 'warning.'

I have since learned that better nutrition will make the skin and 'purifying' organs stronger in order that they can more easily deal with toxins that we all might have a hard time identifying and running from. (Google browse: “Pellagra-Wikipedia”)

I know this from my own experiences with myself and others since these were also my triggers and when we are all under stress we usually consume-apply things that are more toxic to us, whether alcohol, cigarettes, pharmaceuticals, or eating too many calories or high- glycemic calories from carb-sugar-starches.

Toxins include chlorine and fluoride in the drinking and shower water, or pesticides preservatives nitrates chemicals synthetics or enrichments in foods, or pharmaceuticals you have consumed or applied on your skin, or molds or smoke or aerosols.

I hope you learn your triggers and make the choices to become stronger.

IF you are interested, I feel I have become an expert on rashes and pruritus itchings after many years of off and on flare ups. So to do my part to make a difference in the world I now take a little time each week to help others understand why better nutrition is so important, and I have posted much of my own story via the link at: <> http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20091016160457AAkysKW

What kind of acne/facial scrub and facial moisturizer is best during pregnancy?


Like many women, i have been breaking out really bad since I got pregnant, and the cold weather and wind doesn't help very much either. What facial scrub and moisturizer do you use that is safe to use during pregnancy? I've heard that Aveeno is really good, I would just like to get some advice before I spend the money on something, since that stuff is expensive. Thanks a bunch!
----------

I was just reading something online at parents.com about how certain facial cleansers and moisturizers are harmful during pregnancy cause they soak into skin and get in blood streams, you need to ask your doc, he may even be able to prescribe you something. With my first my doc told me to wash with a non soap cleanser. Even if its not for your face.  (+ info)

What facial products do you use during pregnancy?


I am just wondering what brand of facial products people use during pregnancy. I have big pores and red spots and would like to find something safe to use, that is not expensive.
----------

I like Avon. It's gentle enough for pregnancy, and cost effective. You could nose around their website for a good deal... www.avon.com

I like their face exfoliating/cleansing pads and the moisturizer. Nicer than drugstore products, not the cost of department stores.

Hope that helps!  (+ info)

Is it good to use two different facial washes?


I've been washing my face with two different facial washes at night, Lancome Milky Cream Cleanser to wash off my makeup, and Cetaphil daily facial wash afterwards. Is it good to use two different facial washes or would I get better results (clear skin) by sticking to just one brand? If so, which brand should I stick to?
----------

It is ok to us two different facial washes as long as they are just facial washes and not an anti wrinkle brand as well. Certain products that are for reducing age signs use different things and you dont want to mix those. Its also extremely important that you use a moisturizer. I would recommend a lotion verses a cream if you have oily skin. I assume you do since you wash your face so much. Hope this helps.

What inexpensive facial hair removal products work best?


Something that permanently or nearly permently removes facial hair. I feel like I am growing a frigging goatee if I don't shave for a day!
----------

to be honest with you, the only cheap way to really solve your problem is either by waxing or bleaching if you need to do it cheaply.

Otherwise try the laser hair removal, I know it's expensive, but the hair should never grow back afterwards and then no more spending money on products that will only work for a limited amount of time :)  (+ info)

How much facial hair is normal for a woman?


Considering how popular professional waxing, do-it-yourself hair remover and laser treatment is, how much facial hair is normal or are we all hair-phobic. There is obviously a big demand for this. I have heard that European women are quite hairy in comparison. Is there anyone who works in a beauty salon that can shed some light on this and how often are women having treatments?
----------

it's clearly going to be different for every woman, Excess hair can be a sign of ovarian polycystic syndrome which would be worth having investigated by your gp if you feel you may have too much, they'll have to take a blood test first to check your testosterone levels
(my gf has it)

hope this helps  (+ info)

How can I get my facial hair to grow back?


One time last year I used Magic Shave instead of a razor, and it burned so badly that my facial hair doesn't grow back evenly; in some places not at all. As a result, my sideburns look like parts of them are missing. Is there any type of cream or anything else I can use to get my facial hair to grow back evenly?
----------

Really, just shave everyday and the hair will grow in thicker and darker.  (+ info)

How can I make my facial hair grow faster?


I'm 16 and my facial hair only grows on the underside of my chin and it doesn't get very long. I want to grow facial hair similar to Synyster Gates from the band Avenged Sevenfold by the time school starts. Is the anything I can do to make it grow faster other than just giving it time?
----------

There's not much you can do to make it grow faster. Shaving may help, but if you shave too soon you can shave too much skin off, and it may actually damage the follicles. Just let it grow in naturally, that's the best way to go without hurting yourself, preventing yourself from growing hair permanently, or something else. If you really want to make it grow in, hormones may work... that's the only thing i can think of (rogaine will NOT work on the face, you'll probably poison yourself, so don't try) but hormones have to be prescribed, and there is a chance you'll grow boobs in the process. I wish I could help you man, but you're going to just have to let nature take it's course. I have hair on my chin, all around my neck, shoulders, back, chest, sides... I wish i had your problem... lol appreicate that you don't have mine.Good luck though man, hope everything works for you  (+ info)
