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. I suggest looking for zinc or titanium oxide in the ingredients for the best results. If you avoid the sun and wear sunscreen every single day, your skin should gradually even out.

Pangea Organics: Try moroccan argan with willow and rosemary cream. They are plant based (not weird chemicals), organic, vegan, gluten-free. The high antioxidant content found in these products supports collagen retention, helps stimulate micro-circulation, gently purifies, brightens skin tone and helps prevent discoloration and moisture loss. http://www.pangeaorganics.com/buffalo.

Is "neutrogena naturals" facial moisturizer good to use for oily skin?

Won't harm: It has basic ingredients for skin health. It won't harm the skin. Will it improve the oily skin, maybe? Good oily skin treatment requires vit c, vitamin e, vitamin a and salicylic acid, .

Oily skin: How much transfats and other oils are in your diet? Good oils include coconut oil and olive oil. Please avoid junk food and fast food. Lots of fruits and vegetables are healthy and detoxing. Avoid any skin product w/alcohol in it. Peace and good health.

GOOD MOISTURIZER: TRY ONE AND TRY THEM ALL! EVERYONE IS DIFFERENT. WE ARE ALL UNIQUE. GO TO A FEW COSMETIC COUNTERS AT THE DEPARTMENT STORES AND ASK THEM FOR SAMPLES OF A FEW. TRY ALL. AFTER A FEW DAYS, YOU, YOURSELF, WILL KNOW WHICH IS THE BEST FOR YOU. BEST LUCK.

Is it true that oil-free moisturizer causes the skin to produce more oil for someone with combination and oily skin (or anyone for that matter)?

Is it true that oil-free moisturizer causes the skin to produce more oil for someone with combination and oily skin (or anyone for that matter)?

Not likely: The moisturizer mostly stays on the skin surface and its major function is to slow down the evaporation of water from your skin. Usually the body oil serves this function but the oil is washed off by bathing. If you have an oily skin, you should avoid using oil on the skin but oil-free moisturizer would not cause you to produce more oil.

What is a good face cleanser, toner, moisturizer, and exfoliation that works well for my oily skin?

Foaming cleanser: For oily skin foaming cleansers or cleansing pads with alpha and or beta hydroxy acids work best (cetaphil has a great foam cleanser for oily skin and neutrogena has great acid cleansing pads), only use toners when your face is extremely oily as we need some oils to prevent the skin from looking more wrinkled and aged, exfoliate only once a week

Skin Clear Wash: I recommend the skin clear wash from cosmo grade professional skincare. Specifically formulated for acne-prone skin, this foaming cleanser utilizes salicylic acid and tea tree to thoroughly wash away oils and dirt, unclog pores, treat existing blemishes and prevent future breakouts - improving the appearance of problematic skin.

Can u suggest a good moisturizer foe eczema patients? ? my skin is oily

Diagnosis????: People with eczema have dry skin, not oily. Petrolatum (vaseline, Aquaphor) is greasy, so you may not like it. If you really have eczema you do not have oily skin. If you have oily skin, see a dermatologist for a more precise diagnosis. Meanwhile, look for a cream with CERAMIDES. Eucerin, Aveeno, (oatmeal) CeraVe, generics.
