I've had acne in the past and my skin is probably still sensitive but I wanted to know what products are good to use to look after the skin?

I like to not put anything on my face because it is sensitive but I could not exfoliate but use a moisturiser? So does anyone have any tips on what moisturiser to use?

Also I have dark knees because of plucking hairs and it looks really odd in comparison to the rest of my skin. What could I use to lighten in? Should I just keep on exfoliating?

I use Neutrogena oil free moisturiser (with spf 15) during the day. It's really hydrating and I haven't had any breakouts. If I'm splurging, I use Clinique even better skin tone correcting moisturiser, which is spf 20. The Clinique moisturiser has a lot thicker texture. I don't know if it really evens skin tone but it feels really moisturising and comfortable.

BUT, if your skin is really sensitive I'd be worried about putting things on it. your best bet might be checking out products on http://www.cosmeticsdatabase.com/ . This site is invaluable for information on how safe products are. Maybe look there for a moisturiser with few ingredients that look safe. That way you will hopefully have either no reactions, or at least be able to pin down whats causing the reaction.

I find "mechanical" exfoliation pretty useless. It's a pretty harsh way to clean. On the other hand, salicylic acid is really good at exfoliating. Just get a face wash with that in it and it should work the same. Maybe try a mask once a week or something?
I like to use witch hazel as a whole face toner.

The other thing I've started using lately is Decleor Essential Balm. It's pretty much a mix of essential oils, you use a tiny amount at night on a clean face and it moisturises and cleanses. I think my pores have less blackheads and my skin looks nicer. On the other hand, its ridiculously expensive. I got it cheap off of strawberrynet because they've changed the packaging. On the other hand I've only just started using it, and some people complain that they get breakouts from using it.

Hope some of this helps!

I'm currently trying out emu oil pre-mixed with one essential oil. To be honest so far I am happy. Its lighter than I thought it would be, and if you believe the hype its got nutrient thingamajigs thats suppose to nourish the skin.

I remember reading up on stuff present in products like moisturisers, anti-ageing creams, cleansers and so on that can irritata some skin. But I can't remember the source of that information and knowing the internet, it was likely to be a biased point of view.

Although, you can get for instance the same shaving gel, one aimed at sensitive skin and the other for normal skin. I suppose with a slight variation in the ingredients between the two. Anywho, emu oil - so far am happy, and I doubt it would irritate sensisitive skin either:)

^ with essential oils and stuff, I've heard a lot of people like to use jojoba oil on their skin.

I've heard good things about jojoba oil too, and am considering buying some. I'm worried I may break out, but I hear that it doesn't cause break outs so I may try it.

I also hear good things about emu oil (and some bad stuff, mixed reviews), but I could never use it because I like emus. frown

Fundamentally, a normal acne treatment is changing your diet, cleansing your inner organs and utilizing herbal cures to supply nutrients to organs. Prescription medicines, harsh substances and junk or processed foods with foods additives are all unnatural acne treatments.

While significant acne wants serious awareness, moderate to moderate acne is often treated efficiently by a pure acne treatment with normal herbs. These herbs will support even in diminishing acne. This Natural acne treatment will not be from an unique plant or rare species. This natural acne treatment is actually a component of frequent natural items and oils found in your house.

Spices maintain your skin color, digestive system and immune process healthful. Although they'll do such great, they must be used in moderation. Raw spices can be utilised in healing rid of acne as a organic acne treatment.

As you could have guessed, vegetables and fruit are also an element of a pure acne treatment. They may be the two brilliant on your pores and skin when applied directly. It's since from the minerals, necessary oils and antioxidants.

Greens like cucumber cleanse your skin tone from excessive oiliness. You are able to extract the juice of greens, and place them on the encounter five minutes just about every day. However, the pure acne treatment will not perform overnight. You may have to attend about a month just before you start to observe really serious benefits.

Here are some natural tips for keeping your skin healthy.Drink eight glasses of water each day. This helps to flush out toxins that could keep you from having a clear skin complexion and also prevents your skin from getting dehydrated. Water is a better option than soda and other beverages that could lead to acne.

Use aloe found in aloe plants to moisturize your skin. Most people know that aloe can be soothing when you have a sunburn. Aloe, though, can be a treatment used to moisturize your skin. Since there is only so much aloe in a plant, you may only want to use this on your face and/or hands.

Eat a diet full of fruits and vegetables. These foods are full of water which will keep your skin from drying out. Fruits and vegetables are also full of vitamins which can keep your skin healthy.

Place slices of cucumber over your eyes. This is another well-known home remedy that is used by people trying to get healthy-looking skin. Lie flat on your back, with your head lying flat as well. Place one slice over each eyelid and keep it there for about 10 minutes. Doing this every day can reduce puffiness around your eyes. It also feels very refreshing.

Use the skin of a peach on your face. Doing so is an easy way to cleanse your face and get a better complexion. Gently rub the inside of the skin all over your face for two to five minutes. Allow the moisture to remain on your face for at least an hour. You can also do this before bed and wash your face in the morning.

Regards,
