hi there. i have a combination skin type. i have a very oily T-zone, but well i cant really say T-zone because it is only from my nose to my chin. and then i have a sensitive skin and i only have to use mild cleansers because i get pimples right away :( my problem right now are pimple scars although i go to the dermatologists for medications for the acne, still the marks are still there. if i have it removed, besides that it is very very expensive, the scars wont disappear right away. it would probably take a lot of sessions. it is very frustrating :(

hi there... i tried to search on it but i found Mederma. thank you for telling me that about this. i have read that it is known to have good results on helping to lighten the scars, even stretch marks. i will see if it is available here because i really haven't heard of this before. yeah i searched on it and it is from about $12 - $16, well not bad if it is that effective it is funny because when i found out that the main ingredient is onion, i felt like i want to just put some onion all over my face right now thank you so much and you have a great day.. can't wait to finally find and try it

What a nice question to know about your friend's skin ha ha ha. My skin is very oily and after 10 to 15 no one can see the makeup on my face because all are end with oil. I used fair & Lovely. I have no time to take care of my skin and hair because I have more work like cooking, washing the cloth, fill the water, discussion on mylot etc.

surekharathi oh my dear if you were a guy and wanted to take time for yourself you would just do it so girl, you take some time for you, you are somebody too just like the guys, so take a little time to take care of your skin and hair. you do deserve it. I have had problems with makeup just dissolving so had to search for things that will work. take that time out for you.

I have combination skin, which means I do occasionally have issues with it, but if I use good products, its fine most of the time. So it could be much worse!

I was blessed with beautiful skin no pimples no oils well toned until 25 .Some people think guys are not sensitive about their skin but that's not all true.Now I have it all oils, pimples, razor bumps you name it I've got it.It totally destroyed my self confidence.

My skin is not oily or dry. My skin is normal skin. So it's good for me. And that's why i don't face any ache or pimple problem.But one problem is all products don't suite my face. Otherwise it completely fine. Have a good time!

My skin is very sensitive to alot of things. If I lay in the bed after eating on top of some crumbs my skins gets very irritable. Its sometimes dry and oily its very confusing. Sensitive is how I would describe my skin.

hi kwylima I have dry skin on my cheeks but middle of forehead and down my nose its oily so have to treat my skin two different ways. I tried soaps but they did not help and went back to nozema as it cleans without taking the oil from my cheeks and takes the oil from my nose area. Then I use a soothing Suave body lotion to make my facial skin all over just moist but not oily.so Noxzema and Suave sweet pea face and body lotion.it moisturizes as it also smells good. lol lol.I have very pale too white skin as I have anemia. My skin is also very sensitive to things so I will break out with allergy if I am not careful.

Hi. kwylima. My skin is oily around the T-zone area. And my skin is supple and soft. It is also normal too. I hardly get any acne as often. I only get a few when my menstrual cycle comes on.

Did you know that sometimes washing too much and using "de-greasing" products can actually cause your skin to be oily, and even oilier? Ever since I started washing you face with only water, things have been clear :D
