What is a really good skin cleanser and a moisturizer for combination/sensitive skin?

I really need a new face cleanser and moisturizer to help give me a clear, fresh faced, toned skin look. I have combination/sensitive skin, and also I need something that isn't too expensive. If i could go out and buy Elizabeth Arden I would but i cant!
What are some cheaper face products that will really help my skin? I don't have bad acne or really dry skin, but it just looks kind of uneven, dull, blotchy, and my pores are big.

These are cheap and good quality cleansers that I've tried:
I used St. Ives Apricot Scrub and it made my skin a lot smoother looking and even. They make one for sensitive skin too. If you want to use this scrub, also get a normal cleanser(not a scrub) to go with it. You shouldn't use a scrub more than twice a week, because too much exfoliation isn't good for your skin. So, you can look at St. Ives' products...
You could also try Clean and Clear Morning Burst(yeah, I know it says morning but use it whenever, it's a good product), it makes your skin feel really refreshed and smooth. Clean and Clear also makes some great moisturizers too.

So, these are my favorite cheaper products. They work well and smell good too. lol. :)
I hope I helped!  (+ info)

How do you tell the difference between fair skin and olive skin in those with lighter complexions?

I've been told I have olive skin. I've also been told I have fair skin. I can't use any products typically for olive skin as they are usually too dark, yet pastel shades and ivory foundations don't work either.

Could I have fair skin w/olive undertones? I never know how to describe my skin. I generally look "beige" with some red in my skin and tan well in the sun, but I do need to use sunscreen as I tend to burn at first.
Thanks for your answers!

I have red and yellow undertones in my skin, just to make things more uncertain! I have dark brown eyes and medium brown hair. I can't wear any of the warm fall colors such as orange or yellow or green. I can wear dark brown and black and white, as well as the "jewel" colors (red, purple, etc).

My veins are between blue and green but definately green when compared to a very pale person.

"fair" usually has pink undretones while "olive" has yellow undertones. You can have a mix. Some cosmetics counter in deprtment stores sell foundations that they make to match your exact skin tone.  (+ info)

How does skin necrosis from a spider bite takes place? Will it happen from the inside of the skin out?

About 4 or five days ago I noticed a large red pimple on my right thigh that frlt hot to the touch and it has been growing since. Have a little fever that always starts late in the afternoon through midnight. 2 days ago I went to the hosp but they didn't think much of it and prescribed a wide-spectrum antibiotic and Ibuprofen. Today, early evening, I has REALLY grown, very hot to the touch, still feverish, headache, rash on both legs and area closest to the center dot of inflammation is starting to turn very dark red specially under the skin. So, is this how skin necrosis starts, from the inside out? Answer appreciated.

Necrosis is a depression rather than a bulge, it's an ulceration of underlying tissue, bites from a brown recluse are a common cause of necrosis. if it doesn't sink in and turn black i don't believe it can be called necrosis.Everthing else you mention is characteristic of a reluse bit except the pimple.  (+ info)

What's the difference between skin bleaching products and skin brightening products?

I have a friend who wants products that lightens dark skin, but is unsure of purchasing bleach for the skin or skin brightening lotions. Her skin is of medium dark tone with minimal acne. What should I tell her? Any advice?

bleach is noly a temporary solution. skin lightning lotion is a long term solution. But be careful, only use Natural Fairness Lotion or use a glow pack with Sandal Wood Extract regularly.  (+ info)

How do you get perfect and creamier skin from head to toe?

I am a black teen girl (my skin is not chocolate dark, it is brown) and I want to know how to get your skin flawless and lighter/creamier/purer! I get white heads on my face often, I have dark circles under eyes, I have really small bumps the color of my skin on my face, My skin can either be dry or greasy/oily and I have large pores! Can you help me achieve perfect skin to die for? Should I wear sunscreen even though I am not white(not to be racist)? If so what type of sunscreen! Is there a daily regime I should do! Please help! I've always wanted great skin!

EVERYONE needs sunscreen! UV rays are harmful to any skin type.
Check out a pore-reducing cleanser or face mask make for your skin type. Once I find a brand I like, I get multiple types so I can use which ever I need for that day.
Drink a lot of water (64-80 oz/day) and you'll see results within a few weeks (or less).
If you're young, your skin is going to change anyway. Stay away from future scarring by not picking at anything.
Pay attention to what you put near your face: are your pillow cases clean? Do you lean on your palm? Do you talk with your chin on the phone?
For the circles, make sure you get your sleep. Stick to a schedule and get at least 7 hours a night. If you're a teen, you need more.
If you don't see a difference after all that - and you must stick to it - then ask a dermatologist. I think you're gonna look great!  (+ info)

How to make face skin smoother and clear skin without pimples and dead skins?

Anyone please help me. Recently my face is becoming dull and pimples are coming. How to prevent it? I want my skin smooth and clear skin and fairer. Pls help me soon.

I've had incredible results massaging with natural oils. It quickly and permanently got rid of my long lasting blackheads, pimples, scars and all my many severe skin conditions and I now have a totally blemish free, healthy, even complexioned, tight and firm glowing skin.

The secret is to massage over and over quite vigorously and they will reduce day by day. Do with a forward and back motion using finger tips and front and sides of fingers and sometimes palms depending where you massage. So as not to pull/stretch skin, first tighten by partially opening mouth and pulling lips firmly back against teeth. Circular massage is not effective. Try to do 20 to 30 minutes a day(can be in two or more sessions) for best and quickest results. You will see clearing of skin and reduction of pores in as little as 2 to 3 days.(See happy users comment below).Focus on scars and they will diminish day by day. See clear diminshing in a`week or two (depends on how vigorous/how long you do it)

Olive, almond and grape seed and lavender have been used by specialists to treat and cure acne. They do not clog or cause breakouts and they actually reduce skin's oil production.
You will not need to use any other product or treatment ever again - not even moisturizers. Oils are perfect and safe, natural moisturizers. Mukunda.

What are some good skin calming moisturizers or serums for sensitive skin?

I use Dr. Weil serum and I love it, but it's so expensive. My skin loves Dr. Weil and I can tell a big difference right away; however I need to find something I can afford long term. Any suggestions for skin calming moisturizers for sensitive skin? Thanks :-)
Thanks Pelican, does it matter what kind of olive oil meaning Virgin or Light etc?

Believe it or not, olive oil is the best skin moisturizer. And it is not at all greasy. Try it on a small spot and see what you think.  (+ info)

How do I stop biting my lips and peeling the skin of my fingers?

I am always biting my lips and I also pick the skin off when they're dry until they're bleeding and then I stop.

I bite the inside of my lips, too until they bleed and then I stop.

I also peel the skin off my fingers (when I see dry skin) and even though I want to stop so badly, I get in this trance where I can't stop peeling them until they bleed, too! My fingers are becoming so ugly that my husband has started to notice and is very concerned about this. Apart from peeling them, I also bite the sides of my fingers' skin!

So I bite my lips.
Peel my dried lips.
Bite the skin inside my mouth.
Bite the skin off the side of my fingers.
I peel the skin off my fingers 'til they bleed.

How do I stop this? Slapping it won't work, and chewing gum only goes so far. I can do this for 2 hours and can't stop. It's like I can't snap out of it.

How do I stop biting my lips and peeling the skin of my fingers?

i used to bit my lip and make it bleed but wat i do is put lip gloss on and wen i think I'm going to do it i put more on or if i start doing it i don't get cross wid myself just put lip gloss on. With ur hands you could try having a manicure making ur hands and nails look nice and that might make you stop because taking the skin off will make them look bad again also having a manicure will moisturizers ur hands hope you can stop  (+ info)

What seaon irritates the skin most by drying out the skin? I heard that winter irritates the skin most why?

also, does spring, summer, and fall irritates the skin by drying it out? i have acne skin so i really dont wanna irriate my skin and worsen my acne...So does winter irritates the skin? does summer irriate skin? spring, fall? And also, does a heater dry up the skin? it's really cold, i wanna use a heater, but i think it might irriate my skin and worsen my acne.

'Winter skin' is usually more dry because people turn their heaters on, but don't use humidifiers.
This affects some people [ usually those of us who already have dry skin ], but not the majority.
The weather itself is not the problem - it is the lack of humidity in the air.
Spring, summer, fall should not affect skin much, unless heat is on!  (+ info)

How do I treat acne scarred skin discoloration and uneven skin tone?

I am of asian and latino descent, I have combination skin and huge pores. My skin gets congested and sensitive very easily. What can I do to correct my acne and clogged pores? How about uneven skin tone and skin discoloration from acne scars?

I would suggest you use products from zenmed for all your problems. I have being using them and have found their effectiveness amazing and results in a short period. You have a vast choice of products from them for treating acne and other issues associated with it. I would recommend you use the derma cleanse acne gel which is a natural spot treatment formula that clears facial acne fast and also unclogs pores and removes bacteria and dirt from the skin.

For the acne scars you could try using zenmed's scars and hyperpigmentation treatment kit. With this product I have experienced that even the most stubborn and dark scar marks fade away.

All zenmed products are completely herbal, non-comedogenic and as such could be used on any type of skin without the fear of experiencing any type of skin reaction.  (+ info)
