  • i garantee that because you put your hair up all the time - it is from the sun (kinda of that tan but dirty tan look..) my sister has it because her hair is up all the time..

  • You can try using a face scrub to exfoliate it.

  • seabreeze is an astringent..... you can use it on your face to get rid of pimples too. just look for it in the drugstore on the acne care section. it's a liquid and you just put it on with a cotton ball.
    gee, what i did to lose the weight....... it was a lot of hard work. i don't really like exercise so i did more the diet approach. 1200 calories a day.... you have to read serving sizes and write down absolutely everything you eat (keep a running total and try to not pass 1200 every day). i also rode the exercise bike (ok, very slowly lol) for like 6 miles everyday. i also did crunches everynight. i lost about 125 lbs. that way.

  • Try to go and see if you are diabetic.The back of the neck gets dark,those are the signs of diabetes.I know that is what the doctor said to my daughter.
