Hey

Im new this forum, all the way from London
.

Bascially i been having this problem for a couple of months now, what it is i wash my face in the morning and cream my skin then later on i will feel that my skin is very tight in some areas this is within 10 mins of applying the cream. After when going to college, my skin will start to get that shine to it, its not so bad but sometimes its really bad. Is this oily skin, or am i not creaming my skin enough.

The products i use are

"Simple" gel face wash

and the cream its a all over cream that the doctor gave me, it is a thick cream.

I will wash once in the moring and thats it.

I was looking to get these products but not sure if i should

Okay it doesnt let me put a URL in here, but from the range LUSH theres a toner (Rose water) i want, and also a Enzyion moisturiser.

I mean if they anit good is there any other product within the Uk that is good.

Thanks alot

You could have oily skin with dehydrated patches. I would recommend you cleanse your skin twice daily then use an all natural skincare range. Lush has some nice products and I have used their cleansers and face creams but some of it makes me itch and it's not all natural. If you use a cleanser that is too drying it strips your skin of all the natural oils then your skin makes more oil to compensate and you have the dry/oily cycle.

Hi Nick,

Here are some tips on natural cosmetics based on my 25 year knowledge and self experimentation;

The recent flux of natural cosmetics options in health stores and over the Internet has led to an explosive marketing campaign pitting the traditional chemical based cosmetics against those that use more natural ingredients. What difference is there truly between mainstream brands and the new brand of organic and natural cosmetics?

Allergens
Many natural cosmetics brands claim that the major difference between their products and those of their main stream competitors is the presence of different allergens in the chemical based products. However, allergens are present in nearly all products. The difference is in how your body reacts to them.
The best way to be prepared for and combat the negative effects allergens can have on your body is by being tested by a doctor for any number of different possible allergies. There are 24 basic chemicals that all dermatology tests cover as well as a litany of further allergens and chemical compounds that might negatively affect your body.

The Basics of Natural Cosmetics
The main ingredients in all cosmetics that bind water to skin are known as humectants. These ingredients can be found in a wide range of cosmetic products, regardless of cost or source. Common sources include glycerin, mannitol, and sorbitol just as examples.
Each source offers a slightly different result though, meaning women should adjust which products they use in different times of the year. Natural cosmetics generally offer a more organic source for the various humectants needed for successful products.
The best way to ensure that the ingredients in a natural cosmetics product are actually natural is to look at the ingredient listing and check from the top down to see which ingredients are most prominent. If the natural ingredients are not listed at the top, they are not as prominent in the cosmetics.

Homemade Natural Cosmetics and the Difference Natural Makes

The best way to know that natural cosmetics and skin care regiments are actually natural is to create them yourself. There are hundreds of homemade recipes that allow you to do just this, from combining oatmeal and powdered milk to use as an exfoliate in the shower to using lemon juice to remove aging spots.
The main difference that appears for women or men who use natural cosmetics at a certain point is that they start to notice the glow and color returning to their otherwise dry and cracked skin. An artificial product will not only wear out normally healthy skin, it will create long lasting damage. Natural cosmetics, regardless of their effectiveness will return much of the natural sheen to your skin.
There is a substantial switch between artificial and natural cosmetics though that is very similar to the one in food. Your body will need two or three weeks to adjust to the change altering your skin along the way. To keep from experiencing this more than once, make the switch to natural cosmetics all at once instead of slowly over a period of time.

Sincerely,

you should switch between a hydratino product and one that targets oily skin.

maybe u can use the oily skin one in teh day n a hydration product for night.

i personally like vichy aqulia thermal essenec for hydration n i got oily skin.

after using it, it seems like ther'es less shine during daytime for me.
