Is It Absolutely Necessary To Use A Moisturizer Everyday For Facial Skin
My face and neck is so darker than my body.. I am using skin lightening cream.. And sometimes cleanser, toner and moisturizer..No use. Please help.
Sunscreen: If the darker areas are on the face and neck, sun is the most likely cause. You need an excellent sunscreen with SPF of about 50.

Nothing is absolute!: No, it is not absolutely necessary, however, it is a very good thing to do. The skin needs to moisturized and hydrated to stay in it's most healthy form.

Which facial wash and moisturizer should I use I have sensitive and combination skin.dry and oily?
Hey I used a face moisturizer and I have eczama and now my skin feels dry.
What should I avoid in moisturizer or any thing to use on face or body?
I got a glycerin bottle that says.. Contains 99.7 % w/w glycerin... I wanted to know is this safe to use on face.. Skin.. As a moisturizer or not?????
My face skin reacts and gets red and itchy after every facial moisturizer I use. Can skin adjust to something that might initially irritate it? Should I give the moisturizers more time to see if my skin calms down to adjust? Is this possible?
Marine fish oil: Please avoid skin products that contain alcohol, which are drying. Ingesting good fat is the best way to go, i.e., good quality marine fish oil. Coconut oil is also good.
