ok, i got a question. I used to be a gold skin color but over the years i have gotten darker and now I am a brown skin tone due to staying outside a lot. How can i get my natural skin tone back without bleaching my skin?? Is there a type of food that I should eat?? props for anybody who replies this question.

im guessin u were yellow or red bone...well ppl of yellow or red skin tone get darker as they age..not much u can do about it excpet stay out of the sun and use an spf cream everyday

ok and ur lip...um..if your smokin..stop..try and use carmax lip balm

bayareaking...after washing your face thoroughly, try and wash your face over with ice cold water...the cold will makes your pores close up for a short amount of time. also try biore pore minimizer..im about to start usin it soon to see if it gives any results, it's real humid here in texas so to keep cool pores open up...if u do it b4 me just let me kno how that goes

your pores are just enlarged...sorry to let ya know..but sumtimes stuff like that can be permanent. I'd say the best thing u can do is try a pore minimizer and a cold face wash..if the pores seem to be filled with oils a benzoyl cleaner might do the job...or boire deep cleansing pore strips work wonders to clean out pores

1. dont touch your face because of the oils and germs on your hands
2. dont stress too much because this causes many people to break out
3. moisturizers are good, the best is eucerin


best advice i could give

What's the best way to keep my face clean? I got some scars from acne, and sometimes grains come out, but I never touch them and I wash my face everyday I wake up. I smoke a lot but I don't think it's because of that..
Is there any way to get a darker color? I'm not that much white, but I'd like to get a darker skin...

ive been having redness in my face for a while now, its nothing crazy but its something that bothers me. i tried going to the doctor and all he tells me is moisturize and moisture because i have extremely dry sensitive skin, but it doesnt seem to work so i tried using proactive cause they said it doesnt dry out ur skin like most skin treatments do it keeps it moisturized. ive been using it for about 2 weeks now and my skin seems about the same, should i keep trying or do u think its a waste. is there anything i could try that wont break me out or make it redder? thanks to whoever can help me out.

use clippers (andis) not razors and a razor bump solution...ask your local beauty store or barbershop what is best.

what does your shaving regimen/routine look like?

I used to have problems with shaving bumps, all throughout hs and a little bit of college. I've found out that most of the time it's just the way you shave that is the problem as opposed to needing a razor bump solution. Here are real good tips that I've learned in the past:

- Best to shave after a hot shower as your pores are open then and your hair is drenched making them weak and easier to cut
- Splash some hot water on your face before shaving, the wetter the better
- Don't shave when your face is dry
- Razors give you the closest shave. Gillette Mach series are good, but If you use the disposable kind, DON'T use one more than once. Let it run under hot water as you're shaving everytime you tap the sink to get the hair off
- Shave with the grain not against (for most guys that means down)
- After you're done shaving, rinse with COOL water and let your skin absorb it instead of wiping it off with a towel. This lets your skin get the maximum amount of moisture
- Afterwards just put on whatever lotion you use and apply it to your face

Follow those tips and you probably won't even need any razor bump/burn solutions. This is the only razor bump cream I've ever used and it's 3 bucks at WalMart

Yall gotta get up on pure organic african shea butter and some black soap.

That thread got lots of info. Sh1t is good for skin, hair and the shea butter doesn't clog pores.
is a good place to read up on it.

keep a simple skin regimen, using alot of products on your face can make your skin worse then actually making it better....

All i do is wash my face morning when i wake up and before i go to sleep with the dove beauty bar and i use the neutrogena benzoyl peroxide face mask to sleep in, thats my only medicated face treatment, and drink tons of water atleast 6-8 glasses of water a day and try taking a multi vitamin without iodine everyday, its good for your ovr all health...i personally take cod liver oil supplements 2 or 4 a day with meals....it reduces on oil reduction in the skin if u have oily skin, which i do, but i really don't have bad breakouts, i usually have tiny bumps on my forehead that are flesh colored and this is what works for me...

And your dark spots will fade in time naturally, don't use them skin bleachers that sh*t is not good for your skin...Use as little products as possible, they less you use on your skin, the faster your skill will heal itself....

wash every morning and every night..if u want wash when u come home. Yes smoking can cause bad skin....STOP SMOKING IT k!llS U...and it does a number on your skin...not s3xy. If u want darker skin try a lotion with subtle self-tanners. It won't give u that ake orangy look either.

pocketts. proactiv is not for every1...keep using it..i mean you did pay for it. Over time proactiv becomes ineffective and just a big a.ss waste of money.

yes every1..try to stay stress free..and try not to get angry
