Problem/Combination Skin
Problem skin occurs in all the skin types mentioned above. Problem, irritated or
sensitive skin includes acne, pimples, spots, open pores, blackheads, excessive
redness, eczema, rashes, delicate and fine textured, and may have patches of
reddish veins or flaking skin.

Below is a general top ten for most skin types

1. Zap blemishes: Tea's tannic acid absorbs oils that lead to blemishes.
Saturate a tea bag in warm water and press on the affected area for about 5
minutes. Rinse, then dab on a some eye redness remover to get the red out.

2. Facial steam: Combine 1 cup fresh rose petals with 2 cups boiling water. Tent
a towel over your head and let steam penetrate face for 10 minutes. Stay several
inches away from the bowl.

3. Homemade exfoliator : Mix 1/8 cup of olive oil and 1 heaping tablespoon of
sea salt. Use on knees and elbows in the shower and rinse off. Pat dry with a
soft towel.

4. Homemade clay mask : Use 100% clay kitty litter (ground to a powder), mix
with water, apply to face, let dry, then rinse. Eye mask--Grate 1/4 of a apple
and a small raw potato and combine. Apply mixture to eyes for 15 minutes, cover
your eyes with a warm washcloth and relax with some soothing music.

5. Homemade toner : In a blender, blend 1 peeled kiwi and 1 and 1/2 teaspoons
lime juice. Add an equal amount of water and blend until smooth. Use a cotton
ball to apply to face. Refrigerate any leftover toner in an airtight container.

6. Seal your pores : Close your pores with a skin tightening all natural clay or
mud mask, or try this recipe: Mix 1 egg white with a few drops of lemon juice.
Using a brush, massage onto clean skin. Leave on for 5 minutes then rinse with
warm water.

7. Chapped lips : Exfoliate your lips by using an old toothbrush and a menthol
based lip balm. Apply lip balm first, then brush gently with the toothbrush.

8. Moisturize your room : To keep skin from drying use humidifiers and keep the
room temperature moderate. Also, get some green plants; they add moisture to
your room!

9. Protect your skin : Photo-aging is responsible for as much as 80% of skin
damage--wrinkling, sagging, and discoloration or age spots. Use a safe sunscreen
and apply it before exposing your skin to the elements.

10. Skin cream : Applying a skin cream 2-3 times per day helps to protect clean
skin from daily assault. The most beneficial skin cream contains such anti-aging
ingredients as DMAE, Ascorbyl-Palmitate, ALA, Green Tea Extract and Vitamin E.
