    Please recommend skin care products.  Night creams, musterizers,  wrinkle creams, etc


    What’s your skin type? Do you have any (other) concerns you want your routine to address?




    Is combination skin, dry and oily.

    I have some scars and starting to notice some wrinkles



    In another thread, user HoneyJ linked to a post on the many benefits of coconut oil. One of them is wrinkle reduction.


    I have combination skin myself — oily t-zone and normal everywhere else, though. Moisturizer is a little tricky for oily + dry — you want something to help control the oil but you also want it to be hydrating enough for your dry patches. For daytime I’m currently trying one out from Boots’ Botanical line — Complexion Refining Day Moisture Lotion with SPF 12; for night I’m test-driving the Complexion Refining Light Night Cream. In the past I’ve used Alba’s Sea Moss Moisturizer during the day; it’s got SPF 15. It didn’t exacerbate the oily bits of my skin at all.

    For the scarring, something like Mederma, perhaps? It’s supposed to lessen the appearance of scars.


    Look into IS Clinical products they are fantastic – Active Serum and Super Serum would work really well with your skin.  Here’s a link to their site.



    I cannot recommend unless you tell me what skin type you have..like..oily..dry..sensitive?


    Oily, in the cheeksand nose mostly.



    Simple Clear Skin Oil Balancing Moisturiser is best for oily skin. Try it I hope you will get best result


    Wash your face twice a day with warm water and a mild soap made for people with acne. Gently massage your face with circular motions. Don’t scrub.
    Protect your skin from the sun.Use sunscreen.
    Wear protective clothing.
    Don’t smoke.

    Hope, making your life more comfortable.

    may you want to watch my video on youtube where I talk about tips, products and don’ts for acne-prone and oily skin.

    – I hope it helps :)




    Every night you should apply honey to your face then it looks smooth and oil controls too. If you want a product for oily skin then best to go with M.A.C. oil control lotion. Use regularly then you will feel the change in your face.

    All the best..

    Go for organic skin care products, they do not cause any side effects.


    Hey Celia,

    For your skin type, I would recommend you to use Artistry essentials balancing skincare system for Combo to Oily Skin –


     Essentials balancing system equalizes and controls oil to reveal beautifully balanced and hydrated skin without the shine. The three-step system – cleanser, toner, and lotion – includes Tri-balance with natural ingredients like Indian fig and acerola cherry for all-day gorgeous skin. Safe for use on sensitive skin. 

    Also, you should deff try the Pore cleansing mask -http://www.amway.com/SoniaSheikh/Shop/Product/Product.aspx/ARTISTRY-essentials-Pore-Cleansing-Masque?itemno=106400 This product unclogs pores and helps control oil. Oil-free mineral clay masque draws out excess oil to help control oil and shine.

    My sister uses this for her skin and she is amazed with the results. The masque should only be used 1-2 times a week. 

    You can email me for further questions.

    Hope this helps you!

    Wrong. Someone can have an allergic reaction to all-natural/organic skincare just like they can to skincare with synthetic ingredients.


    Hey, Really great post.
