How do you get beautiful skin?
Beautiful skin is essential for making the most of your looks/ Without it, all that carefully applied makeup will either go patchy and blotchy, slide into lines and wrinkles, or disappear off your face in a shiny, oily mess. The simple truth is that most of us don't have beautiful skin. In fact, we don't even have so-called "normal" skin, with its plump, shiny texture, radiant glow, and minimal breakouts. Instead we have dry bits, oily bits, or irritated bits and that means our skin doesn't always look as good as it should. But the good news is that you don't have to put up with this. By knowing what kind of skin you have and how to treat it, you can solve your particular problems. Balance the levels of water and oil in your skin and you will create the state of harmony that is beautiful, perfect, "normal" skin.
What type of skin do you have?
To create perfect skin you have to treat each individual cell within it perfectly. You need to know if the cells need more water, less oil - or just to be left alone to calm down and stop being hot and bothered. The only way you're going to know how to do this is to know your skin type.
Now you may think you already know this, but many of us are wrong. In the first place, skin type changes with age, so oily skin in your teens doesn't mean oily skin in your 20's, 30's, or 40's. Skin types can alos change with the seasons, as temps affect the levels of oil and water in your skin; they can change with your diet and even according to the time of the month. So to truly knoe your skin type, you should reassess it regularly. Doing so is easy - just answer the following questions and see which letter you choose most often.

i hav only 2 months...Plz help me?
To get smooth skin in two months:
Be healthy! Exercising regularly gives you a beautiful healthy glow, and can actually improve the condition of your skin! Drink lots of water (8 cups a day) to help your skin to be healthy, and try to eat healthy, too. For example, don't eat loads of fatty, greasy foods like fries and burgers.
Go to a chemist, supermarket, or beauty shop, and buy make-up removing wipes, cleansing lotion, toner, moisturizer, and facial scrub. Make sure you get them for your skin type, eg. sensitive skin, dry skin. As long as it is a reputable store, their own brand should be cheaper, but the same quality as expensive brands.
Wash your face with WARM water every morning. Then, clean your face with the cleanser. Rub it in circles all over your face for about 30 seconds and rinse off. Pat your face dry with a towel and apply toner with cotton wool. Apply moisturizer after the toner( while skin is still damp with toner). Next, apply your make up.
Take off your make up with the wipes every night before you go to sleep. Wash your face with cold water again, use toner, and moisturizer.
Make an emergency zit kit including a zit cream that has salicylic acid and/or benzoyl peroxide, a cream that reduces redness, a concealer stick, and translucent powder (the powder should absorb excess oils on your face). Of course, this is completely optional, but very useful.
Wait a few weeks; you should notice that your skin becomes smoother and clearer!
Remember if all else fails, go see a dermatologist. Ask about Acutane as well (it works like a miracle! But there are side effects, though. They depend on the person and their body).
Dealing with pimples:
STOP popping the spots, also known as pimples and zits. This may make the pimple look worse due to inflammation and irritation. Popping a zit can spread infection under the skin and produce even more pimples than before. If you do pop a spot then immediately clean it with soap and water or rubbing alcohol in order to prevent infection. If a pimple erupts in a particularly bothersome place, learn how to target a single pimple. And if you're determined to pop, learn how to pop a pimple safely and properly. If you do pop a pimple, the best thing to do is put a mixture of honey and ground cinnamon on the spot. Put a band-aid on it also. You may also want to stay away from stress.
Remove any make-up you have on. Wearing make-up can clog pores, making them dirty and causing pimples.
Use a mild soap for sensitive skin but it doesn't matter exactly what type of soap you use. It can be designed for acne-prone skin or not, but you will want to treat your skin gently. Harsh antibacterial soap may actually make your acne worse by irritating skin.
Remove dead skin cells regularly by exfoliating. Use a gentle scrub with natural defoliants like ground walnut shells, or use an over-the-counter chemical defoliant like salicylic acid or glycolic acid. Adding ground walnut shell to a thick moisturizer like cocoa butter can be effective too. Take caution, because over-exfoliating can actually increase the likelihood of acne by irritating the skin. Pat dry, rather than rubbing, since rubbing can cause irritation to the fresh skin you've just revealed.
Use a good toner. Spray onto face or wipe on with a cotton ball and wipe off with a clean, dry cotton ball. This gets rid of excess cleanser and tightens pores. Good, inexpensive choices include plain witch hazel for normal to dry skin, lemon juice, or 3% hydrogen peroxide for oily skin. 70% ethyl rubbing alcohol can also be used for severe oiliness, but it can really dry out your skin and irritate it more. Some toners are medicated, and this stage is the best for using a medicated product if you're only going to use one medication.
Bacteria in pores is one cause of spots. Reduce the amount of bacteria by using toners containing anti-bacterial agents like alcohol, peroxide and benzalkonium chloride, and by using creams that contain benzoyl peroxide (ask your doctor about benzaclin, with moisturizer if you have dry skin, as it works better than just plain benzoyl because benzoyl takes up to 8 weeks before improvement is seen) which kill bacteria as well as cause the skin to regenerate faster.
Maintain a routine. Most acne treatments take time to work. It usually takes between two and eight weeks before you see any significant improvement, so you are going to have to be patient. Once you've gotten your acne cleared up, it's important to continue with the treatment that's working so it does not return.
If all else fails, contact a doctor. Mild antibiotics that are available only by prescription can help reduce acne. Keep in mind though, that the widespread overuse (taking antibiotics when you really don't need them or for something they don't treat) and misuse (not taking medication for the specified amount of time) of antibiotics has led to the development of multiple antibiotic resistant bacteria.
