Hi! I am looking for a new foundation and think I have decided on YSL's Touche Eclat. I apparently have pretty sensitive skin as I have tried Armani Luminous Glow, Laura Mercier's foundation and tinted moisturizer, and Smashbox Camera Ready BB Water and they all gave me either full on break outs or tiny bumps all over my forehead. Chanel's Vitalumiere Aqua was actually ok, but it didn't provide much cover. Has anyone else with sensitive skin used YSL's foundation? Thanks!
Hi! Ok I apologize for the possible rambling ahead. I need an entire new skin care and makeup routine. For the past 3 months or so my face has gone to hell! It started with those tiny bumps on my forehead and chin area, then my pores got larger, and now I have full on breakouts on my cheeks. I don’t know if it’s hormonal or what- I have had 2 babies in the past 3 years, stopped breastfeeding completely about 7 months ago, and currently have the Mirena IUD.. Getting the IUD out isn’t really an option I’m wanting to explore yet (I am horrible at taking the pill). I was prescribed Ziana by my dermatologist- it worked for about 6 months and then I feel like it stopped working. So right now I am using Cetaphil Oil Control Foam Wash and their Daily Facial Moisturizer. Since starting the was my face has gotten really irritated, red and dry and my breakouts haven’t changed at all. I use the Glam Glow Supermud twice a week, and that will help with the little bumps, but they always come back.. which makes me think it could be my makeup. I use Armani’s Luminous Silk Foundation and that’s about it. I’ve been doing some research and think I know what I want to get, but I am also afraid that I will be too harsh on my skin. My face has become quite oily the past couple months whereas before it was normal/combination. This is what I’m thinking of, I can’t decide on which moisturizer would be good so any suggestions are appreciated: Skin Care- First Air Beauty Cleanser Sunday Riley Good Genes Sunday Riley Luna Sleeping Night Oil Glam Glow Supermud Gross Alpha Beta Universal Daily Peel Makeup- YSL Touche Eclat foundation Sorry for my long post, I am clueless when it comes to anything beauty related. I really appreciate any and all help/suggestions. Thank you!
I'm a 19 year old college student and I have dry skin and my face gets red and little bumps under my skin, a couple red pimples sometimes massive but usually a medium size and acne scares and large pores. I am currently using first aid beauty facial cleanser with my mia Clarisonic and I moisturize with Cerave face lotion but my skin has been getting worse ever since I got back to school. Any recommendations for these issues?
I have been using the first aid beauty cleanser for 2 years and it worked great! Now I am noticing small bumps on my face, when I pick ( I know I shouldn't) they are black head type bumps. What should I try? My skin in very sensitive and more on the dry side, with an oily nose. I don't know what to do.
Hey everyone, I'm looking for a skincare product that would help with combination of issues. I typically use the clique 3 step products but every once in a while I'll have a flair up of bumps on my chin. Anyone have products that work to help with intense flair ups?
Any suggestions for someone with dehydrated, allergic skin who also gets breakouts, blackheads, and the occasional sub surface bump. I react in the form of eczema to many ingredients and don't do well with natural products. Fragrance really bothers my skin as well.
Does anyone else have a problem with cystic acne? I don't get little bumps any more but a few large, painful spots that take FOREVER to go away. I'm 21, and never had a huge problem with acne, but this is just awful. I know that stress has a lot to do with it, but I'm sure my skincare routine could use some work. Does this bother anyone else? Can anyone make a recommendation?
Can anyone help me with these frustrating little blemishes under my eyes that will NOT go away?!? I feel like I do everything right but these guys will not budge. They aren't like my usual pimples. They are much smaller, hard and raised. The spot treatments that work for me do not work on these guys. I do exfoliate once or twice a week, I charcoal mask once a week. I cleanse daily, I do not wear makeup on a typical day. What could I be doing wrong? What should I try??? I'm so sick of these things! heres a photo except sorry about it being sideways and I'm shiny because I just put on my night creams
I have noticed that I suddenly broke out very bad on my chest, neck, and shoulders. I am still trying to figure out why...and I think it might be because of the seasons changing, and the weather. I dab tea tree oil on the blemishes morning, and night. I have tried benzoyl peroxide, and sulfer as well. Nothing seems to really be helping. Any suggestions? Thank You.
Hi, I do not understand few things. I have tried few products from Sephora and a lot from Korean brands. When they are non-Korean brands they are hurting my face a lot. For example, Kate Somerville, Ole Henriksen's products, they hurt me a lot. However, when I use korean brands such as all Faceshop products, it's skin, Laneige, etc, they are a lot smoother, so I wonder why does it do this to me! And if I should be restricted to only buy from Korean brands. thanks!
Hi everyone! I've been thinking of purchasing a toner, but I have no idea what to try. I was going to buy a Clinique toner, but a sales associate at sephora told me it would be too harsh on my skin. I have acne prone and sensitive skin, so I am always conscious about what I put on my face. I do use a prescription from my dermatologist, not sure if that matters or not! I would also like to avoid something that dries out my skin, I've finally gotten my dryness under control. I'd appreciate the help! Thanks!
Hello. I'm in my mid 30's and want to switch to a natural line. I break out daily all over and its worse during my period. I would like to stay within the same line. Which line would work best for me: Tata Harper, Drunk Elephant, or Sunday Riley?
Hey there! I am so lucky to love my job but I work outside. I work in merchandise and live in Florida. After about five minutes outside you are already sweating up a storm! My shifts are about 8 hours long outside with two thirty minute breaks. Does anyone have any recommendations of what I should use to help my skin? I always wear my hair up and my problem area is my jaw and cheeks. Thanks!
I have combination skin that tends to lean more towards the oily side, and I feel like my pores are just very congested. Especially on my nose. I have a lot of blackheads and I want to get rid of them so badly. Can anyone recommend a product that has worked for them? Thanks!
I suffer from the most inevitable; Acne. I have a few pimples on my forehead, nose and chin, but most the acne on my face is scaring. My nose, however, is infested with embedded black heads. I wash my face 3-4 times a day with Acne Dote Face Wash, I use homemade soap to cool my face (after using the acne wash, my face feels like it's burning and redness appears), I then apply coconut oil. I have been doing this for months now and I've hardly noticed any changes. The only change I've seen is the bumpiness has gone down slightly, but that's about it. I'm going to be starting high school in a few days, and I truly wish not to be picked on because of it. I've been picked on a lot during activities I participated in. Do you have any suggestions how to remove the blackheads / lighten or remove acne scaring / clear up the pimples on my forehead, chin and nose? Thanks. Spoiler (Highlight to read)
Hi, I have been STRUGGLING with this issue.... for so many years already I find that no skin care products help, as it comes from within the body. So I am not asking for skin care help.. but rather, SUPPLEMENTS that help adjust the hormone back to a normal level. I know all that blurb about eating right sleeping right and exercising and decreasing stress blah blah... but I need to know what SUPPLEMENT can help fight that male hormone which causes this ugly situation!! Also I know that female hormone supplement helps but it can cause weight gain so I don't want that..... plz give some suggestion???? thanks!!!!!!!!
I have always had great looks, but right now they need some help. Girls, if you have ever had blackheads and or pimples, you know what I am talking about. We freak out if we even see one, but multiple! What do I do? School's starting and I want to look cuter than ever. Do any of you girls know what I could do to quickly stop these pimples and blackheads. Thanks. Let me know of any advice you have.
I have a couple red spots and a few brown spots on my cheeks from acne. What products can I buy to reduce this? I started using Shiseido enriched mositurizer / night mask and mud clay as well. I prefer shiseido if possible. Thank you
I have a mild acne that I would like to reduce or if it is possible make it disappear, I have normal to dry skin and I used to prevent acne with natural products like Aloe Vera but, since my acne is a little bit more noticeable than it was before I think the best is to try a different product. PS: I'm allergic to Benzoyl Peroxide, Petrolatum and Mineral Oil.
I've posted several threads but can someone please help? I'm open for anything & everything! It may look like there is active acne. There is not. It's mainly just red post "acne" marks and minor scarring. What ingredients/products/skincare routines are recommended? I know I need a good mix of things to keep it clear, but also to soothe and repair. I just don't know what order or what ingredients are more importantant/ HELP!
