- Normal skin shows neither oil nor flaking skin. It should feel supple and smooth. If you have it, consider yourself lucky :)
- Oily skin is characterized by the grease on the tissue. It is also common for a person with oily skin to have large pores and a shine.
- Dry skin may feel taut or show flakes of dead skin. It is associated with small pores. Moisturizing is important for this skin type.
- Combination skin is most common. It exhibits traits of all three of the above skin types. Usually, the skin is oily in the T-zone and normal to dry elsewhere.
- Sensitive skin. If you have sensitive skin, your face reacts easily to regular skin products. This means that when you use regular skin products, your face will get red, itchy, or a rash could form.
- Acne-Prone skin. Even if you're not a teenager, you may still get pimples/acne, especially if you have an oily skin type. If you have acne-prone skin, look around for a good acne products.
- Almost invisible pores
- Dull, rough complexion
- Red patches
- Less elasticity
- More visible lines
- Genetic factors
- Aging or hormonal changes
- Weather such as wind, sun, or cold
- No or few imperfections
- No severe sensitivity
- Barely visible pores
- A radiant complexion
- Overly dilated pores
- Shiny skin
- Ultraviolet (UV) radiation from tanning beds
- Indoor heating
- Long, hot baths and showers
- Ingredients in soaps, cosmetics, or cleansers
- Take shorter showers and baths, no more than once daily.
- Use mild, gentle soaps or cleansers. Avoid deodorant soaps.
- Don't scrub while bathing or drying.
- Apply a rich moisturizer right after bathing. Ointments and creams may work better than lotions for dry skin but are often messier. Reapply as needed throughout the day.
- Use a humidifier and don't let indoor temperatures get too hot.
- Wear gloves when using cleaning agents, solvents, or household detergents.
- Enlarged pores
- Dull or shiny, thick complexion
- Blackheads, pimples, or other blemishes
- Puberty or other hormonal imbalances
- Exposure to heat or too much humidity
- Wash your skin no more than twice a day and after you perspire heavily.
- Use a gentle cleanser and don't scrub.
- Don't pick, pop, or squeeze pimples. This prolongs healing time.
- Use products labeled as "noncomedogenic." They tend not to clog pores.
- Use a broad spectrum sunscreen that blocks both UVA and UVB rays. Avoid direct sunlight and wear a hat and sunglasses.
- Don't smoke.
- Stay hydrated.
- Wash your skin thoroughly every day and never wear makeup to bed.
- Moisturize your skin.
- Two common examples are dry skin with papular and pustular acne on the cheeks or a normal skin with inflamed papular and pustular acne in the chin and mouth area.
- Treatment: Tend to each area appropriately as described above. If the acne is severe, consult a dermatologist or esthetician.
- Baby-step solution: Big UV-protective sunglasses (to prevent squinting and filter sunlight) and a moisturizing nighttime eye cream with antioxidants and retinol will do a lot to prevent and treat early crow's-feet.
- Serious fix: If the rings under your eyes are pronounced to the point where you look tired all the time (thank genetics for that), a derm or plastic surgeon can inject a hyaluronic acid filler along the circles to create a smooth surface between your cheeks and eyes. "I love hyaluronic acid fillers like Restylane and Juvaderm because they contain small particles ideally sized for smoothing out superficial issues," says dermatologist Dr. Hilary L. Reich.
- Baby-step solution: Anyone who has come home from the beach sporting a splash of new freckles knows that sunscreen is most crucial to people prone to sunspots. "The sun exacerbates the pigmentation immediately," explains Brown. Layer on protection any chance you get — vitamin C serum under daily sunscreen and topped with mineral powder is a sweet trio. At night, help the fade with alpha hydroxy, beta hydroxy, or kojic acid.
- Serious fix: Ask your derm about mild acid peels to increase cell turnover and get rid of blotchy surface skin, or Intense Pulsed Light treatments, which target spots but are gentler than zappy lasers.
- Baby-step solution: At home, use vitamin A derivatives like over-the-counter retinol or prescription retinoids like Retin-A Micro to "prevent and minimize fine lines by increasing collagen," says Reich. Gross' grassroots solution is this: "Retraining ourselves to not make some very basic facial expressions — like scowling — can make all the difference. Whenever you feel tense, consciously take a moment to breathe deeply, which will force you to relax your facial muscles."
- Serious fix: The only way to stop expression lines from forming is to refrain from making the expression, which requires Botox. But derms are divided over using preventive Botox. "Is Botox too much for a 25-year-old? It depends," explains Fields. "If you have an anatomically aggressive wrinkle, Botox at 20 makes sense. But if your skin goes back to smooth after making an expression — get out of here."
- Baby-step solution: Clean out and tighten your pores so they can't hold as much. Peptide creams and serums strengthen and firm the skin, salicylic acid products dissolve the oil in your pores, and face scrubs with round beads smooth away surface dullness — just steer clear of scrubs that contain ground seeds or pits because jagged edges can microscopically tear skin, making the problem worse in the long run.
- Serious fix: Enzyme facials are great for jump-starting a pore-minimizing regimen. Hit up Bergdorf Goodman or Nordstrom for the Elemis Modern Skin Facial — designed for 20-something skin, it uses papaya enzymes to gently coax crud out of the pores. For a more drastic approach, Isolaz is a no-downtime laser procedure that literally vacuums out your pores and kills bacteria, which also makes it great for getting rid of pore-stretching acne — a condition that many women don't outgrow until their 40s.
- Cleansers: Every quality beauty regimen starts with a good cleanser. When shopping for cleansers, there are a few things to keep in mind. First, choose a cleanser that will remove dirt, makeup and oil without stripping natural moisture from the skin. Second, shop for cleansers that will work with your skin's natural chemistry. If you have dry skin, for example, choose creamy cleansers that infuse the skin with moisture. If your skin is acne-prone, buy an oil-free cleanser with blemish-fighting salicylic acid.
- Moisturizers: An excellent moisturizer is an important post-cleansing skin care product. Some moisturizers are thick and heavy and are perfect for individuals with naturally dry skin. Light and oil-free moisturizers are ideal for men and women with oily skin. Moisturizers can also contain SPF for sun protection, natural antioxidant extracts and anti-aging ingredients.
- Exfoliating products: Exfoliating your skin from time to time can give your complexion a smooth, youthful appearance. Exfoliating scrubs and cleansers remove dead skin cells from the skin to keep it from appearing dull and dry. Different types of exfoliating products are available, including cleansers with micro beads and scrubs with salt and crushed shells. Products with micro beads tend to be gentle and can be used on a regular basis, while heavier scrubs should be used less often.
- Specialized creams
- Decide how much money you want to spend. Depending on where you shop, prices for skin care products can vary greatly. As a general rule, product lines carried at salons and spas tend to cost more than those on the shelves of your local pharmacy. You can find quality lines in many places, so you have many options to suit your budget.
- 2Decide whether you prefer an organic or a synthetic skin care line. Depending on your lifestyle and skin care goals, one or the other may be better for you.
- 3Educate yourself about skin care products. Find out the benefits of the skin care lines you are interested in. Some companies specialize in anti-aging, while others cater to the teen and college market. Compare companies that target your skin type and skincare needs.
- 4Find out about short-term and long-term effects. Some skin care products may alleviate a specific problem quickly, but may not be best for long-term use. Be sure you know how a skincare line will affect your skin in 1 year or even 5 years.
- 5Look for products that work together. For example, some skin care lines that have an aggressive exfoliator, have heavier moisture and collagen activators in their serums to work with this exfoliator.
- 6Get advice. If you are not sure what a product does, ask the sales representative or an esthetician before you buy it. You need to be sure that you are not canceling out the benefits of one product by using it in conjunction with another
- .Buy the basics, then add on. Start with the right cleanser, exfoliator and moisturizer, then add serums, toners, night treatments and spot treatments.
Lifestyle, Diet, Age also can change you skin type, for example : you have normal skin but when winter or you start live in a cool area you will likely to feel dry skin... what's you eat what you will see the result of your face, if you eat to oily food this also can make your face oily, mostly teenage have oily skin because of changing hormone also likely to cause acne, but when you are older your hormone will become normal if you lucky you will likely to have normal skin again like when you were young(before teen-hood) so, always check your skin if it has change, if yes then you have to use other kind of product that fit your new skin type, if not it will become worse example : you have acne-prone skin but now you have normal skin, if you keep using acne-prone product it will make your face worse or cause you more acne, use up all of your product and then try your best to find a good product for normal skin,

So a lot of blog worthy things have happened since my last post but I've failed to blog about them lol.
Around two weeks from now I will be starting classes and attending freshman orientation at BC (CUNY Brooklyn College). I'll be commuting there this semester (:P).. which is a bit of a battle lost but like most things, and hopefully for all the things that follow, I'll strive to make the best of it and be open to a good turn of events.
The commute is on the longer side but I'll look to it with an adventurous spirit. My brother got me a great new timbuk2 school bag. If you haven't heard of them they are notable brand that specializes in bags for commuters and students. They are a little pricey compared to, say, something you probably used in high school, but they are supposed to be quality, utility, and very durable with a hint of the creative/artistic. Mine is pretty cool looking as it was customized. It's the classic, medium size, messenger bag, model.
Besides that, I also got a, Takeya brand, glass water bottle. Again, a little more than some people would spend on a water bottle but I thought it would be a good investment because it's BPA free, environmentally friendly, chic looking, and doesn't effect the taste of the water (as plastic and stainless steal bottles do) which I'm pretty picky about. Plus, I really did need something to take with me to school. One downside, though, is that it's a little bit heavy.
Alright, back to events.!
On the 10th I went to my registration appointment at BC. I got photo student ID card as well as my schedule for classes, and bill for the semester. The damage wasn't nearly as bad as I thought it would be.. actually tuition (after financial aid) cost about as much as I thought it would but I was still relieved to see the amount on paper.
It was a little over 1,000 dollars which is still nothing to scoff at but I think I've received Christmas presents that added up to more or the same as that.
I was a tad disappointed that there wasn't much socializing at the registration day. When waiting in the library for things to start, the other students didn't talk to each other. I thought about saying something but didn't and at the time I wasn't completely sure that they were all incoming freshman until later on.
At the end, I did manage to say 'Hi' and introduce myself to one girl when we were sent to another building to complete our registration. Her name was Carlina and she seemed really friendly and nice. I definitely regret not initiating contact with her sooner as well as not taking any contact information from her before I left.!
Sigh, time is going slow/fast motion right now. I'll be starting at BC in about two weeks but right now I just feel static, waiting. I'm going to pay my tuition after I call the financial aid office about the status of my FAFSA verification. I might actually qualify for a Pell grant (really hope so).
On the other hand I really hope nothing goes wrong and that they don't end up taking away any of my aid or something. I'm also going to inquire about the work study program. I don't plan on keeping my job at Pier 1 (much to my mother's dissatisfaction) but I'd like to work on campus, to earn money, but to also be more involved in the school and have more reasons to spend time there.
Really need to spring clean my room!

- On damp cotton wool. (most frequently used method)
- Spraying onto the face.
- By applying a tonic gauze facial mask - a piece of gauze is covered with toner and left on the face for a few minutes.
It shrinks pores.
- Normal Skin-Normal skin is smooth and firm to the touch with small or medium sized pores. It doesn't get too dry or too oily, and it only has the occasional blemish. People with normal skin should moisturize, cleanse, use a spot treatment, and maybe a night solution.
- Dry Skin-If your skin feels very tight and is noticeably flaky in areas, then you have dry skin. Dry skin can be caused by lack of hydration or malnutrition. Dry skin can look rough and bumpy, and rarely gets oily. Those with dry skin should find a deep moisturizer, use a spot treatment, and use a moisturizing night solution.
- Oily Skin-Oily skin is easy to identify. If your face is visibly shiny, and literally feels slightly wet to the touch then you have oily skin. Oily skin come with large pores that are more noticeable, and usually is more prone to blemishes. If you have oily skin, you should tone, exfoliate, use a spot treatment, and lightly moisturize once in a while.
- Combination Skin-Combination skin gets a taste of just about every skin type. If you have combination skin, you tend to get oily around your nose, chin, and forehead area, and dry around your cheeks. The rest of your skin is pretty normal. A lot of people have combination skin. If you are among them, exfoliate, cleanse, moisturize, and use a spot treatment.
- Sensitive Skin-If you burn very easily, have reactions to certain cosmetics, and have irritated skin after a dramatic change in weather, then you have sensitive skin. Sensitive skin is very hard to deal with because it isn't as durable as other skin types. You have to thoroughly test products before risking a purchase, and you find blemishes hard to treat. If you have sensitive skin, use a moisturizer, cleanser, and spot treatment all suitable for sensitive skin.

"General disagreement **
Valid during many months: On the negative side, this can be a time of furious conflict with others. Recent actions by you or by other people may have created energies that lead to anger, rage and general disagreement between you and others. If you have not been careful to enlist people to your side in any work that required your individual initiative and if you have alienated them thereby, you may find now that the forces of opposition have become too great to control.
The other side of this transit is quite different and much more positive. It can mean a time when some activity you started in the past is brought to a triumphal climax. However, you had to face a challenge that tested the validity of what you were doing. If you survived that challenge successfully, you will now enjoy the fruition of that effort. "
I've never gotten a horoscope quite like this before... I'm really hoping that the negative isn't the one that comes to pass but I feel like it will be.. that, however, might just be the mild anxiety talking.
Tread carefully I will..
