Postby shirllin » Mon, 05 Sep 2005 3:12 pm

okay....make sure you have a good cleanser, toner...etc
since you are prone to pimples don't touch your face
wash your face twice a day, other than that, when it get oily, splash water on your face or use blotting paper.
for pimples you can get acne creams...there are many in the market
it alot of fruits and vegetables to maintain good skin
you can try doing DIY facials, but be careful when you experiment

Dear Terrie,

Thnks a million for your suggestions....yes I have a good cleanser and acne cream....which keeps most of the pimples at bay....yes I do wash twice daily....yes I don't touch my face....yes I eat a lot of fruits and vegetable because I like them instead of meat.....not thinking of DIY facials....my face is quite ok except that it is still oily....any other suggestions to regulate my oily skin?

God Bless,
Shirllin

juice is good (make your own with a juice machine)
a colon cleanse can help the skin by ridding the body of toxins
do not drink coffee, alcohol, soda pop, other junk food drinks...or atleast cut down on it :)
use stress relief like going for walks in the park
get sleep
exercise light to moderate amounts
do not smoke it has bad effects on the skin and entire body

basic beauty

Postby kk_lass » Tue, 20 Sep 2005 3:55 am

It is stated that beauty starts from thorough cleansing..
I guess you need to have good removal, cleanser and toning moisturiser. It is the basic.. do not forgot toning moisturiser.. Doesn't meant oily skin has no need of moisturiser.. That is why find a good one which is suitable for oily skin as well..

Do you wear makeup?? Maybe cut down on makeup if you have acne.. as it is better to let the skin to breathe.. Acne skin or oily skin can also be resulted from the makeup u use.. or whether you have cleanse it well ..etc Plus acne can also be resulted from ur diet and lifestyle.. U will know it is the later one if you still have acnes after being diligent in ur cleansing.

Just take note: It is natural to have oil in ur face.. just occasionally use blotter or tissue.. (dun use too often, as our skin still need oil) as long as the oil does not cause blockage in ur pores or cause blackhead in ur nose.. then these oil are necessarily to protect ur face..

My inputs.. Hope this helps! :D

Oily skin?

Postby Trinitiz » Tue, 20 Sep 2005 3:10 pm

Hi!

KPO a bit in this thread.

I used to suffer from oily skin too with very bad acne. Spend thousands on various treatments eg, beauty salons like A*****, B******, H****, AHA treatments, IPL sessions but all with no avail. :(

Recently , I have started taken to Diane 35 and it's absolutely fab! It really helps in clearing my zits and face and reducing oiliness drastically! I'm absolutely delighted with the results!

For those who are more reluctant to resort to medication, La Mer's Oil Absorbing lotion is a fantastic product in curbing oil production. Light in texture, it curbs oil production and skin feels matt and soft for whole day. Downside is the very expensive price..But this is one product that is really value for money! :wink:

Dear Shirlin check out the website ..

www.cosmeticscop.com...

I think that you might get some useful information from there.

Please do not blot your face .. cause it wil only generate more oil.
We'll get along fine as soon as you realize I'm Good.
