Dry & Oily skin

Recommended Posts

Hi I am 21 years old and have been dealing with acne since I was about 16. My face is naturally oily, but after I use skin products and shave my skin gets dry and flaky. Do you guys know of any solution to this problem? Also I think I may be developing scars on the area around my temple.....how do I know if these are permanent scars and how can I prevent/diminish the existing scars?

I usually take about 5-10 minute showers.....what moisturizer do you reccomend? I am in the military so I have to shave every day...but most of my acne is on my forehead

You could try the 'do nothing' regime. It is discussed in detail in the holistic forum. Look for a post made by someone named alex.
