How to know that the skin care product is suitable for your skin?


I'm 15 years old Asian teenager.
I want to know that how to know that skin care product like cleanser, scrub or else is suitable for skin.
Can someone tell me if that skin care product is not suitable for the skin, what will happen.
Does St.Ives Apricot Scrub suitable for teenagers?
----------

omg! i have that exact same problem... i don't really know how you can tell if something is suitable for ur skin but i know St.Ives Apricot Scrub does NOT work for me. I had been using it off and on for about 10 months and i realized my pimples just wouldn't clear away, especially after i used it. so... i stopped using it for a week and all my pimples went down to tiny size and u can hardly see them anymore. y don't u try stopping it for a week and if it gets better, its not for you.  (+ info)

How does skin protect you from infection? How will it effect you if you had no skin?


I am the same person who asked How does skin protect against infection but I don't like Elle's answer for How does skin protect against infection. Also, don't put hard words, make them simple.
BY the way i am only in fifth grade so whoever insults me will be reported and i don't understand some words!
don't you guys think that Stone Rose is insulting to have on Yahoo Answers

Skin is the bodies first line of defense. The different layers of skin literally block bacteria like a forcefield. Bacteria lives on our skin because it cant get in. When the skin is broken, or germs find a way in through the mouth, nose etc, we get sick. If we had no skin, we would get so sick so fast, the we would not live. That is why 3rd degree burn patients need to be put in a sterile room sometimes.

The top layer (dead epidermis) sheds off the skin every moment, taking all the bacteria with it. This keeps them from staying on too long.

Without skin you could not process waste and your organs/ blood would go everywhere, killing you. If that didn't do it first, millions of bacteria would finish you off in about an hour.  (+ info)

How can I make my skin beautiful and flawless like in those face wash commercials?


So I have extremely white skin! Like it is SO white that it is close to impossible to find a foundation that is light enough to match my skin tone! My skin is also really sensitive! Like on a scale of sensitive 1 being not sensitive at all and 10 being REALLY sensitive. My skin would be around 7 and a half... Is there any tips, tricks, or treatments I can look into to so I can get that amazing beautiful flawless skin? Thanks in advance! Blessings :)

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 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)

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 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.

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)
