But what i have come to understand (Spoke with a dermatologist and he says diff people have diff skin)
If u have money u will be best knowing the type of skin u have and what u need to apply.
While i was in Uni, my face was constantly shinning, enough to fry fish, i had boils with pimples on top of them, the black spot was like someone used a black crayon on my skin.
I used everything i could afford, its so bad that when u speaking to someone, u know the person is staring at your face..
Cant believe what happened, but everything vanished with age.

Pour hot water in a bowl and put your face over it till it becomes warm. cover your head with a towel to prevent the vapour from escaping too quickly. Dry your face after you are done. Cut fresh cucumber and apply the juice on your face. Leave for 10-15 mins, then wash off. There is your oil-free face. You can repeat after a week.

Nice one OP but did I hear some say " apply shea butter?" That's a no go area. The idea here is to minimize oil on d face and not add to d prob.
Also note dat too much washing of the strips the face of ots natural nutrients thereby not solving the prob.
in addition to using oil-free products,look out for facial washs, soaps, cleansers or lotions that contain salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide they help a great great deal.

Gen2jaynee: please give me tips on how u help it..m suffering from acne n spots
Well, I use a separate sponge for my face and body. I scrub my face morning and night. I use tea tree products, at the moment I am only using the tea tree foam and sponge.
I have a sensitive skin so I don't use many products really. I start using fashion fair oil minimizing toner. Don't know whether it's working, only got it off my mum two days ago.
If you can go without makeup please do, because it clogs up the skin.
Use lime, leave it overnight on your face.
Oh, aloe vera(pure on-the liquid from the stem itself)
Toothpaste, I don't know if it actually works or if it only gives me a placebo effect but use it on the spots, it dries it out.
Don't pick on the spots, the might because big and leave really dark spots marks plus yóu will spread it.
Facial masks-those that open pores. I like the heat one.
P.s, don't let people touch your face.

|Re: Skin Care Tips For An Oily Face by O'steve(m): 7:53pm On Jul 26, 2012|
[quote author=kandiikane]Gawd! I have an oily and sensitive face and when I mean oily, you can use the oil as body cream. Majority of the time when going out I don't rub cream on my face. It always gets soo shiny, around my t-zone. I am prone to spots-well, I use to suffer from spots during my high school days but I thank God for years of taking care of it, I have not one single spot.
I don't use any type of products for my face because I don't want to break out and I don't let people touch my face because I don't know what germs they are carrying.
I wash my face quite regularly but I am a sucker for chocolate. [/quote How did u cure it the spots?
|Re: Skin Care Tips For An Oily Face by kandiikane: 8:05pm On Jul 26, 2012|
It was not a joke. I take my facial care very seriously. It took me 3years for my face to become completely spotless.

As with every other thing in life, there are rules governing them all. Same thing is applicable to the face. You must observe the rules of the face if you must have a clean smooth face. Here are some of the fundamental basic rules of the face.
1) Never use sponge on your face no matter what......rub soap on you face and allow it to stick there for like 5minutes before washing with your palm.
2) Never squeeze the acne in your face in the name of squeezing out puss...you are worsening it cos of germ transfer.
3) Never rub oil cream on your face...your face need to breath through the pores. The oil will clog it and it will 'shoot-out' more pimples/acne/blackheads.
4) Never wear make-ups before going to bed. As in the case of rule number 3, you must resist the urge.
5) Never use heavy chemicals, hot soaps, or any cream in whatever form on your face. You will end up damaging you face. Treat your face the same way you would treat the eye....face is sensitive too.
6) Never use hot water on your face no matter how you have believed that its no longer hot. Remember that the skin in our hands/palms are not the same with that on our face......both have their distinctive texture and feel. Pls, before you jump on my neck for this assertion, drop a spoonful of hot water on your face and do same on you hand then tell yourself the result. A hot water in the face in the name of warm water may destroy your facial skin pigment which will take years to heal.
7) As a rule, drink a glass of water first thing in the morning and plenty of it every other time in the day. This helps to wash away free radicals from inward...usually done via perspiration.
Eat more of fruit than fatty food and friable.Fruit has some natural chemicals that is released into the body when eaten that goes to wage war against bacteria and its proteges living in the body.
9) Wash your face twice if you have the opportunity. Those with too much oil face should increase their facial washing from 2 to perhaps 4. Warning> Never over-wash your face....dont go rubbing and washing your face with almost half of the soap in just one day at a time. You'll be damaging your skin if you do that cos our face need a lil oil to keep it moisture though.
10) Grab enough sleep. Don't deprive yourself good sleep. Sleep is a biological natural healing phenomenon embedded into each and everyone by God which is regulated by body clock. So get some good sleep whenever you can and watch not only your skin glow, but your face as well.
Final notice> Please make a diligent and careful search for cream and soap that is compatible with your skin type because what works for Mr Seun Osewa's skin may not work in Hod1000 skin. Our skin differs....even among identical twins. So, it doesn't matter whether such soap and cream costs 5k each or 40, what matters is choosing the right one for your skin. I for one uses a soap of 60 naira and I found that its good for my skin unlike when I was using a soap of 350. One more thing, I don't use cream on my face, but I can use cream on any other part of my body.
BOTTOMLINE/> Experiment, play around with your skin until you learn what things it does like and stick to it.
"Insanity is when we do the same thing over and over expecting to have different result."
My greetings to all fellow NLers.

^^They said never use the same sponge you use for your body.
I think the sponge played a major part in helping my spots disappear.

Another tip: never ever ever! Go to sleep with makeup on. It may be hard to make that extra effort for some but in case u can't shower, try at least to wash the face...get rid of accumulated dirt, oils and germs that clung to d skin during d day. Afterwards, use a mild cleanser. This is a MUST. Soap n water only take care of surface dirt. A cleanser deep cleanses. D difference is always clear. For those with sensitive skin afriad of more breakouts, try Clean and Clear deep cleasning Astrigent (with salicylic acid) which costs less than N1k in naija or Palmers skin success. Also, tho it may sound overflogged but do drink at least 7 glasses of water a day. Really helps.

YEBOKO: Pls nlanders wht about KELIOD any solution,thanks in advance
There isn't any other solution for keloids apart from surgery and even that, it's very likely that it will return as the scar heals- if you are prone to it.

Lemon worked for me.
Ehimax: Plz i want to knw how i can get rid of black spots on my face, anyone with idea should please share it, its making me lost my confidence.
|Re: Skin Care Tips For An Oily Face by shilling(f): 12:20am On Jul 27, 2012|
There are no rules when it comes to skin care. What works for one person would not work for the next. I try to use products that are as natural as possible and follow some basic universal "rules"
Cleanse with Clinique face wash. Moisturize with olive oil or clean and clear (with salicylic acid) or a mixture of both. Olive oil might sound strange but it literally dissolves into the skin.
The last thing you want to do on oily skin is overwash your face as this tells your skin to produce more oil.
Kandiikane mentioned this. I use brown sugar, baking soda or st ives Apricot scrub. Exfoliating gets rid of dead skin cells and speeds up regeneration.
I use lemon or apple cider vinegar
4. Facial steaming
I do this once or twice a week. Just like exfoliating, it unclogs pores. I wear makeup whenever I go out and clogged pores equals breakouts.
Yes black people need sunblock too. This is esp useful if you have dark spots cos the sun will darken them.
6. Water, vitamins, no makeup to bed.
I think for anyone who wears makeup, cleansing, exfoliating, toning and moisturizing are essential. That's my basic regimen above and I no longer have breakouts. My skin is oily but not sensitive so I can exfoliate more regularly and use harsher products like lemon and apple cider vinegar.
