I've had cystic acne for a couple years and fortunately was acquainted with isotretinoin via my derm. Luckily I've been acne free (barring the occasional micro-zit every now and then) but even 2 years later, I still have lingering acne marks on my cheeks. (I'm reluctant to call them acne scars since they do not indent my skin - they just leave behind dark pigmentation...anyway!) What are some products/procedures/medications has anyone tried to fade/get rid of pesky marks? btw right when I my time with iso, my derm said the marks would fade in a year but it's been way over that and no new acne has showed up in those areas....
Hey Skincare lovers! I finally have my acne settled down, but I have a multitude of red marks left behind, my fear is that using brightening products will affect my freckles. I am someone who loves her freckles and tries to accentuate them. Is this true or just some crazy myth? Are there any effective products to help lighten these red spots? Any advice helps Thank you!!
I have oily skin not crazy oily but it can get pretty oily at times. I have adult acne, not sever or anything but i do have mild to medium breakouts I don't want to just hide the pimples or bumps I want to know how to get rid of them so any advice would be very helpful and appreciated. Also is there a spray or something I should be putting on my face before I apply makeup to avoid breakouts? Than ks!
I purchased the Bobbi Brown Face Base yesterday after hearing RAVE reviews. Today, I tried it and put my foundation directly on top after letting it set on my face with no additional primer. By lunch, the foundation had broken up quite severely and redness was most definitely on display! Should I try it as a 2-in-1 with a different foundation or add another primer on top?
I just want to say THANK YOU SO MUCH to Sephora and Sol de Janeiro for sending me the original Brazilian Bum Bum Cream and the new Acai Body Power Cream au gratis! I have never tried the Bum Bum Cream but have heard amazing things, and am so excited to have the chance to try the new version as the same time. They both smell quite nice! The Bum Bum Cream is slightly tropical but in no way overpowering, and the Acai Body has a fresh, almost pine, sweet forest scent. Both are in no way greasy. I think these will make a nice addition to my body care collection!
I have been using obagi gel cleanser for 3 years and it's a good cleanser however I still have breakouts, blackheads and oily skin. I also use retin a so I do not like cleansers with active ingredients. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
Hello! I was hoping you guys could help me figure out if i'm purging or having a bad reaction to the Drunk Elephant C-Firma Day Serum. I started it on Tuesday, using it every second morning. I have since broken out in four new pimples and one that was barely there when I started has come to the surface. I know that Vitamin C can cause a purging like this and I was just hoping for some help determining if that's what's happening. I would really like to know before I use it for a month and totally wreck my face (it scars really easily unfortunately). Thanks in advance!
I am extremely disappointed in Sephora. After all the money spent online and in stores, the only times I've ever really gotten samples is when ordering online. I thought the only time I got samples is when I did order online. As someone said, you shouldn't have to ask for samples when shopping in stores. So the only way for me to get samples is to PAY $10 a month for the Play box! So disappointing!!
Hey everyone, I'm new here looking for some advice for my skin. I've always had acne, until 2 years ago. I had perfect skin, minimal breakouts. Somehow since mid August of 2016 I have started breakout like crazy, not severe, but somewhat concerning for me since I haven't had my face like this since I was a teenager. Anyways was wondering what do you recommend for my type of skin? I was using Murad Clarifying Cleanser, but now my skin gets really dry after and I get this tight feeling. I was using this product before my acne started happening. I changed it up and started using Purity from Philosophy, same thing, this cleanser left my face like squeaky rubber, Then I recently started trying Clarins Orange Exfoliating cleanser and it does help me out tremendously since my bumps decrease in size after using and keeps my skin clear, but it still leaves me somewhat dry. Regarding on the moisturizer I've been using Garnier Moisture Rescue Refresh. What can I do to return moisture in my face? Or is there a routine I could follow including the Murad and Clarins to see if that keeps things under control?
Anyone have any experiences with tretinoin cream? I've been using 0.05 for almost a month now every night and my skin keeps looking worse and worse everyday. So much more acne and I swear I have more lines on my face now than before I started using it. I heard it's so good for anti aging and acne but so far my results have been absolutely dreadful.
Spoiler (Highlight to read) When I was younger, I used to have really clear skin. Now that I guess I have reached the point where my hormones are changing, I don't now. I tend to get pimples in my T-zone and blackheads on my nose. Occasionally, I get a few deep pimples on my cheeks. These seem to be very deep and sensitive. Then within a few days they rupture and are really painful. I try not to squeeze them out of fear of what may happen. If any of you have any suggestions, I would really appreciate it. Also, my skin is a combination between oily and dry.Thank you! When I was younger, I used to have really clear skin.

Hi! I've been using Retin-A for 6 months now, and my face is always so red. Does anyone have suggestions for how to treat and reduce the redness? It's the only side effect that I am still experiencing with tretinoin.
I normally would post in the question thread but I don't want it to go unnoticed, lol! I also posted several months back about patchiness issues on my face with my foundation, and I feel like most of my problems are gone, but my chin is still SO CONGESTED! I need help! I tried to get a good photo, so I am sorry if you can't really see what my issue is. I am also wearing foundation in these photos. I get tons of micro zits, TONS, and my foundation also patches up in that area still. It has never been smooth and I don't know why. Is there something else I should maybe try? I currently use this stuff at nighttime: Omorovicza or Tatcha cleansers Peter Thomas Roth peel pads to exfoliate Jasmine garden toner by May Lindstrom Rejuvenating night cream by omorovicza (this has been a life saver, it fixed all my dry patches) This is what I normally use, but twice a week I will use a mask which takes the place of the peel pads. I have the resurfacing mask by tata harper which I use once a week, and then the Origins mask in the pink packaging (I forgot the name, sorry lol I think it may be a rejuvenating mask, but it also has some exfoliating bits in there). For daytime I just splash my face with water in the morning and follow with a spritz of the omorovicza hungarian water, then follow with the illuminating moisturizer. Let me be clear that I do not have dry bits on my face anymore, in fact, it feels great and I have no issues! It's only my chin which has all this congestion and tons of micro pimples. I can seriously pop like 10 or more at a time if I'm feelin it lol. Is there anything else I should or could do to help?
I placed an order a couple days ago and Still have no tracking number for it. The two products are ordered are already out of stock so I hope there wasn't a problem with my order. Usually my orders are shipped the next day so I would like to know what's taking so long please.
Hey guys, I was hoping I could get some suggestions for a good primer that would help smooth out my acne scars. My skin is pretty dry and my foundation doesn't run at all (I recommend Tarte foundation!) so what I'm really looking for is a good base so my foundation doesn't sink into my craters. Help?
