What is the best facial wash out there to use in the morning to prevent oily skin throughout the day?

I want a facial cleanser to use in the morning that I can buy at Target that will prevent my forehead from getting oily throughout the day? What is the best one?

For oily skin I recomend very strongly a mild cleanser, nothing for oily skin.
Target has a wide varity, make sure that they are tested by dermatologist, I prefer Almay and Physicians Formula products.
Use a small pice of TP during the day to blot your skin. Just press to your T zone to mop up any excess oils. They also sell papers with powder on them that do the same thing.  (+ info)

How do you get facial Hair to grow when your transgender?

If your a transgender person FtM without taking hormones how do you get facial hair to grow. Shaving does not work ive tried it so many times.

There are three kinds of hair on the human body; vellous hair, which is the 'default' fine, soft and usually transparent hair that appears all over the body, and two types of terminal hair; asexual terminal hair, which is longer, coarser and usually pigmented, and appears on the scalp, and (after puberty) in the underarms, pubic area, legs and (sometimes) arms on everyone, and androgenic terminal hair which is longer, tougher and darker than either of the above, and occurs when hair follicles are acted upon by testosterone; this is what appears on the face, chest, abdomen and arms of men.

The ONLY way to cause vellous hair to become terminal hair is by exposing the follicles to testosterone; if you don't have testes, an androgen-producing tumour, or PCOS, you won't develop it in any significant amount.
And, contrary to popular myth, shaving has NO effect on the growth pattern of any kind of hair; it WON'T grow back thicker if you shave it off.

Once a follicle becomes terminal, it doesn't change back; which means, once you start growing facial hair, it won't go away; it's permament. The only way to remove terminal hair, once it develops, is by destroying the follicle, by electrolysis or Laser treatment.

If you are a transsexual man, and want to develop permanent facial and/or body hair, ask your gender specialist or endocrinologist to prescribe testosterone for you; nothing else will do it. Don't waste your money on 'herbal' preparations; they don't work.

If you're 'transgender', and only want facial hair temporarily, buy a false beard.  (+ info)

I am currently using my mom's facial cleanser, it's by Elizabeth Arden, it's like a cream and ceramide thing. I am afraid that she will notice that I am using hers too, what's the best alternative for this?

Any other facial cleanser with ceramide? It's really good for the skin! I notice that every time I wash my face with it, my skin feels supple and spot on fresh!

How can I make facial hair grow faster and thicker?

Is there a way I can grow facial hair faster and thicker? I'm trying to grow a beard, but it's difficult for me.

Hair isn't alive and it doesn't grow. Hair is an accumulation of a protein called keratin inside the follicle. As it builds up on the bottom it is pushed out the top, creating "hair growth". This is a biological process so nothing that you do to your hair, like trimming it or using some "special" shampoo can help. Eat a healthy, protein rich diet and take a regular multivitamin daily. The thickness of hair is determined by genetics: the thickness of the hair shaft and the number of follicles in the skin, you can't change that.  (+ info)
