I am 23 years old and I have had acne in my T zone since I was teenager. I have combination skin, mostly oily on the T zone, and I've used Spectro Gel since high school but it doesn't seem to be working very well these days. I'm looking for good skin care products to use and how often to use them.
You need to take care of your skin in many ways other than just using skin products.
Limit time in the sun. Try to stay out of the sun between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.
Use sunscreen. Look for a sunscreen with an SPF (sun protection factor) number of 15 or higher.
Wear protective clothing. A hat with a wide brim can shade your neck, ears, eyes, and head.
Avoid tanning. Don’t use sunlamps or tanning beds. Tanning pills are not approved by the FDA and might not be safe.
As far as products go, there are 2 that are approved by the FDA, Renova (tretinoin emollient cream) and Carbon dioxide (CO2) and Erbium.
I want to get my lips injected with whatever they use, I think it's collagen? Because my lips are so freakin thin,,, but I don't know about how much I should save or how often I need to get them injected.
Before an injection I suggest using cosmetics. If you'll be happy with the results then you can have an injection. And you don't need to pay too much for this little experiment, if you have 19,95 US you can try this: http://www.cushylips.com/?aid=414473
My skin is terrible and i want to know how to get my skin perfect.
Most acne medications are geared to teens' oily skin, a bad choice for drier adult skin. Effective treatment often requires a trial-and-error approach that takes time. Here are my recommendations:
1. Cleansers: Cetaphil and Aquanil are the most gentle. Avoid too-strong gels and products containing beads or granules, which are abrasive and can irritate and worsen sensitive skin.
2. Creams and lotions: Use an over-the-counter retinol product to clean pores and help reduce fine wrinkles. Prevent discoloration and fade acne scars with products that contain salicylic and glycolic acids. And to spot-treat a breakout, use a product with benzoyl peroxide, which helps kill bacteria.
3. Prescription medications: The topical antibiotic clindamycin helps fight bacteria in the skin; so does tetracycline, another antibiotic, taken orally. Oral contraceptives and spironolactone, a blood pressure drug, can help balance hormones.
4. High-tech solutions: Laser and intense pulsed light treatments mainly target scars, but blue light therapy treatments kill acne-causing bacteria. These treatments are costly, though, so explore your other options first.

World-renowned plastic surgeon Dr. David M. Amron, M.D. of “Dr. 90210″ and Spalding Drive Cosmetic Surgery and Dermatology in Beverly Hills, performs collagen lip enhancement procedure.
Collagen is part of the natural support structure of your skin. Wrinkles form when this natural collagen thins. This loss is mostly a factor of aging, but sun exposure, health, heredity and lifestyle also play roles. Without enough collagen, wrinkles and lines start to form wherever the skin moves. Collagen Replacement Therapy replenishes the skins collagen layer, smoothing lines and wrinkles, and adding definition to lip borders from the inside out. And results are immediate.
Collagen Replacement Therapy has been proven safe and effective for more than 15-years. Collagen implants are natural products derived from highly purified bovine collagen that is injected just under the surface of the skin. Like your own collagen, your body eventually absorbs this collagen so ongoing treatments are necessary to maintain results. If you discontinue treatments, the new collagen is simply reabsorbed and your face gradually returns to its natural contours.
While healing time varies, many people return to work the same day. People absorb collagen at varying rates, but treatments generally last 2 to 5 months. Two skin tests (two weeks apart) must be administered 4 weeks prior to treatment to screen for a preexisting allergy to collagen. Collagen is primarily used in the lips, smile lines and down turned lip lines.

Do body and face lotions with these things really make a difference in your skin, or is topical application not enough? Is the collagen absorbed through your skin?
Yes and no. Yes, it will absorb, but the product that you are using it needs to be a highly concentrated form. And its expensive. So if you buy something is cheap…most likely it will be the 40th ingredient in it and not concentrated.
The best thing for collagen, vitamin C serum. That stimulates your own collagen in the skin.
Like things to eat, things to use on my face, things to not use on my face, stuff like that. My skin seems to be going down the crapper at an alarming rate so i really need some advice at how to get healthy beautiful skin that i want.
What makeup should i use, i'm using covergirl trueblend and bronzer right now is it bad for skin?
GET ENOUGH SLEEP!!! That's the best thing to do but since we're pretty busy & our schedules probably prevent us from getting the sleep we need/want then you can try other alternatives Long run (though not necessarily the easiest and with the fastest noticeable results) – It's best that you drink plenty of water coz it cleans your body from the inside. Also, exercise is a must! When you exercise it allows your blood to circulate faster which is healthier and it eliminates your body toxins faster. Eat fruits and veggies if you can. Try to avoid salty foods. Shortrun (the quick and easy way) – use the right skin products. I suggest you use olay white radiance facial wash & moisturizer regularly. It helps aid in oiliness and helps lighten your skin. Also, bring oil control film all the time! It does wonders. For make up, you may want to try smashbox photo finish foundation primer then apply covergirl trublend minerals pressed mineral foundation.. if you want a lighter make up but still have some cover then go for shiseido the skincare tinted moisturizer protection spf20. Sunscreen is a must by the way.. I use nivea face sunblock. For blush on i say go for clinique or revlon floral affair sheer powder blush. I hope this helps

I am 31. My face looks aged, my skin lost its radiance. so I started taking collagen supplements (DHC collagen) since two days. Can the soft and radiant skin can be obtained using this?
Who Knows? Who Knows?
I know what treatment quite dramatically did that for me and many others on Answers who have used it. It's the best proven safe and natural way.
I had so many severe skin conditions that would not respond to medicines and that lead me to experiment with natural, safe remedies. These not only healed the conditions but gave me an unbelievably flawless, healthy, young looking, vibrant skin so that I am often thought to be countless years younger.To maintain healthiness of skin and keep it young looking there is no better or safer way then thoroughly massaging with essential oils. They naturally benefit skin in countless ways. They feed skin essential beneficial nutrients. Thoroughly massage into skin and you will see marked results even in one day. Massaging quite vigorously is even better for skin tightening and giving you a vibrant, glowing and blemish fee skin. Don't be afraid of doing it vigorously. If done right it is only beneficial as many users on Answers will testify(see my B.A.'s) There is no pulling or stretching of skin as you have to tighten face muscles in order to tighten or flex skin in the part being massaged and in doing so it actually exercises and conditions many of underlying face (and some neck) muscles – thus combating aging and weakening of muscles that eventually leads to sagging and wrinkling and lines. Vigorous massage is best done by using a forward and back motion using finger tips and front and sides of fingers. Circular motion is less effective. In just a few days skin will visibly tighten, look and feel smoother and have a healthy glow . I promise you that it can to totally revitalize and rejuvenate skin and face. Try it – you will be happy that you did!

Fox News On Reseveratrol
Everybody is talking about anti-aging products and the new Resveratrol breakthrough.
The muscadine grape is the only grape with the extra chromosome. How Resveratrol and red wine activate genes for a longer and healthier life.
Dr. Joseph Maroon – The Longevity Factor
You want to purchase the book?
-On Page 193 Dr Maroon writes this on Vivix: There is growing evidence that a
combination of resveratrol and other potent polyphenols might provide
improved health benefits due to the synergistic properties of different
polyphenols from different plant sources. Shaklee Corporation, a direct
selling nutrition company has recently released a product called Vivix,
which is described as a cellular anti-aging tonic. It contains a
multi-source polyphenol blend. In conversations with the company, they state
that the blend includes 100 mg of 98 percent pure resveratrol from Polygonum
cuspidatum long with a proprietary extract derived from the fresh pomace of
muscadine grapes (Vitis rotundifolia) The company recommends 5ml per day of
Vivix, which they state is equivalent to the amount of resveratrol found in
100 glasses of red pinot noir red wine. The muscadine polyphenols in this
blended product along with the added resveratrol, European elderberry
extract, and purple carrot extract will increase the total overall
polyphenol content of this product. A month’s supply will cost a member
In Shaklee’s accompanying literature for Vivix, they state that the
Vivix ingredients were shown in a laboratory study to be 10 times more
powerful in slowing a key mechanism of aging than resveratrol alone.”
Also, on Page 70, the author expands on the value of the muscadine grapes
and the advantages over European grapes. “Muscadine grapes are native to
North America, and may be the only fruit that originated in the United
States and nowhere else. They grow almost exclusively in the southeastern
They thrive under adverse conditions, perhaps due to their thicker and
tougher skins compared to European grapes…. muscadines have an extra
(twenty instead of the nineteen other grapes have). These additional genes
allow muscadine grapes to produce a unique phytochemical, ellagic acid.
The ellagive acid polyphenol compounds that are in muscadine grapes are
vitually absent in other grapes. Ellagic acid is used by the muscadine grape
skin to make tannin called ellagotannins, whichis used as an antimicrobial
by the plant. Ellagic acid also has powerful antioxidant and anticancer
properties…. the polyphenols in muscadine grape skins have been shown to
have positive effects in heart disease, high cholesterol, diabetes,
metabolic syndrome, and other inflammatory conditions. One of the more
interesting effects of muscadine products appears to be their inhibition of
AGE protein formation.”
Continuing, the author states:” Recently, a large nutrition, direct selling
company, Shaklee Corporation, working with scientists from the University of
Georgia, has created a product containing an extract made from muscadine
pomace which is the remaining fruit solids after the water content is
Specificaly, they are working with muscadine grape growers in order to
secure grapes with large amounts of protective polyphenols including ellagic
acid and resveratrol. By selecting muscadine grapes and by using a whole
grape extraction process, they have reported that their extract has a
significantly higher concentration of healthy polyphenols than found in the

In June I am going on vacation to the Caribean. I need to have perfect skin so that I will look okay if I don't wear makeup to the beach. My skin is pretty good, but it's dry and I get a few breakouts. I also have dark circles under my eyes. I want to have beautiful, glowing skin.
Wash your face everyday, exfoliate once a week (or use a purifying mask every week) and drink lots of water.
