Skin care &choosing creams for your skin type and age

this can be difficult for alot of people as there are so many different products on the market nowadays .
Here are some simple steps to follow on buying the right creams for your skin type .
What skin type am I?
this is pretty simple ,If you suffer with spots you have oily skin ,if it is only on certain parts of the face then you have combination skin (a mixture of oily and dry)even oily skinned people get flaky skin this can be confused as dry skin , flakes on the skin are dehydration so your skin could be oily dehydrated in this case .drink plenty of water and apply mattifying moisturiser after you cleanse and tone your face to prevent further dehydration,( mattifying moisturisers contain no oil ).use gel cleansing washes and alcohol based toners with no oils.
If your skin is tight after you wash your face and you have tiny fine lines and closed tight pores ,rarely suffer from spot s, then your skin is dry , treat this by cleansing with face CREAM not lotion or gel ,use an oil based toner ie rose oil and water . moisturise with moisturising cream not lotion these creams are alot thicker giving your skin extra moisture .
If your skin goes red or pink and is sensitive to alot of products then you have sensitive skin ,
using natural products from your health shop is best for this
and normal skin is recognised by few of us, lol but for those who are lucky to have it, they will have perfect skin ,no spots ,no blemishes.
when you are in your teens lotions are light and enough for the skin but as you get older you should start looking for thicker creams instead of lotions. These should be used from the age of 25 upwards to prevent premature ageing ,neck cream is also advised (use this on the chest also )
Best products and home made treatments for each type of skin
normal skin 
Joboba oil mixture
six table spoons joboba oil , one tbls vit E oil, 2 tbls beeswax, 8 drops of rose essential oil , 2 tbls rose water ,one tbls aloe vera (purchase all of these in a health shop as you only need a small amount for each mixture they will last you months if not years )
first mix all oils together except essential oil , add besswax also (put bowl over another bowl of boiling water ) and mix until wax is metled .
remove and allow to cool ,add rosewater aloe vera and mix well , then finally add essential rose oil mix thoroughly and pour into a glass jar with airtight lid .
dry skin
most oils are great moisturisers, purchase pure coconut oil or olive oil (mix together if prefered ) from your health shop and apply all over the face after cleansing ,leave for ten mins then wipe off excess with a damp cotton pad . when having a bath take advantage of the steam and apply your moisturiser all over your face leave till you get out and wipe off excess again , this will push the oils deeper into the skin as the steam opens your pores .
oily skin
homemade moisturisers really arent great for oily skin but ask for a mattifying one when buying one from your store ,and always tell them you have oily skin when choosing any creams ,lotions or make up .using a honey mask at night or in the morning helps keep away bacteria prone to cause spots on oily skin , simply heat up a little honey so its easier to spread and apply all over a clean  face ,leave for ten minutes and rince with warm water.
for all skin types
use glycerine and honey
mix three table spoons of glycerine to one spoon of honey when making mixture , apply daily and leave on all day if you dont wear make up or if you do apply at night and leave on the skin till morning.dont put this mixture in the fridge as honey goes hard ,airtight jar or tub is fine .

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own weblog and was curious what all is needed to get setup? I'm assuming having a blog like yours would
cost a pretty penny? I'm not very web smart so I'm not 100% certain. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated. Cheers

The other day, while I was at work, my sister stole my iPad
and tested to see if it can survive a 30 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation.
My iPad is now destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is completely off topic but I had to share
it with someone!
