I have combination skin and was wondering if there is a combination skin facial moisturizer with SPF that is reasonably priced. If not, then do I put a facial moisturizer and sunscreen over it? Also, can you specificly name a combination skin lotion and cleanser that is effecient? Btw, do combination skin lotions turn your skin into a normal skin type and gets rid of those dot things on your face? Thanks!!! Sorry to take up your time
Honestly, a combination specific product does nothing for your skin in the long run. Only clinical options tend to do that.
Combination is normal skin, by the way, chica. Combination is the middle-ground between dry and oily skin. There's variations, some combination skin is essentially fine all around being taken care of properly, but some has dry or oily areas around places like the T-zone. So, what I'm trying to get across is that you can get away with using most products.
I will point out that you most likely want a gentle cleanser, something along the lines of Philosophy's Purity (the fancier) or Cetaphil's gentle cleanser (the cheaper).
The dots are blackheads. Blackheads unfortunately never fully go away. You can buy strips to deal with them, but those are only temporary and they'll come back within a few days. Blackheads are just essentially dirty pores. Jordan S. Jordan S.

Ok, I have a bunch of long hair on my arms. It's not dark though, it is light blonde, but it still makes me uncomfortable because it is so long. I don't want to shave it, and was wondering what kind of alternatives to shaving there might be? Thanks!
Hey girl. Shaving your arms can lead to serious stuble. Here are some ideas for non-shaving methods: http://www.girlslife.com/post/2011/02/09/how-do-i-get-rid-of-arm-hair.aspx

i have really sensitive skin, and most make-up products burn my skin. What are your reccomendations and sensitive skin make-up?
Hey girlie, try products by CoverGirl that say sensitive skin or Neutrogena products. They're usually pretty good for sensitive skin.

I have deep black heads all over my nose and they are just getting worse. Early in the day, my nose will feel greasy. It really bothers me. Is there a way to get rid of them?
Thank-you so much!!

Hey girls! My mom just got me an electric razor cause I just started shaving and all... and I love it! It's so much faster, you don't have to go into the shower to do it, but the only things is it doesn't shave quite as close. It still rox and if you don't have one already you should get one.
