SKIN CARE..Breakout control
Hey guys! I had a question regarding to skin care products. So, recently I’ve been experiencing some serious breakouts. My face has always been in good condition, and I have been using several products to do that (Kiel’s, Korean skincare, Fresh), in addition to that I always thought that good genes are another reason for my ‘problemless’ skin (my mom and sister have the best skin ever!!). However, the breakouts that I now have consist on small acne look-like pimples and are in only one section of the face (the right one and forehead), the left part is perfectly fine. I believe that my T-zone has recently become more oily than usual and that’s the reason behind this breakout. So I’m looking for a good moisturizer (oil-free), cleanser, and mask. I’d like to note that I’m allergic to tea tree oil so what do you guys suggest? Thank youuuu!!

pH of products
Today I did some pH testing of products that interest me and here are the results:   Toners that are awesome at pH adjusting: Neutrogena Pore Refining Toner ph = 3   Bad: Belif Problem Solution Toner ph = 5 (upsetting!) Clarins Extra Comfort Toning Lotion ph = 5   AHA/BHA that have a good pH: Paula's Choice BHA 2% Liquid ph = 2.5 Derma e Overnight Peel with AHA ph = 3   Not so good: Peter Thomas Roth AHA/BHA Acne Clearing Gel ph = 5 Cosrx BHA Bleackhead Power Liquid ph = 5 (This one kinda upsets me, how comes it is five? I always thought its around 3 or 4)   Serums with low pH: Good Genes (super low pH)   Not so good Peter Thomas Roth Camu Camu Vitamin C Brightening Mask ph = 5 Andalou Naturals Turmeric + C Enlighten Serum ph =5

I have dry skin and some mild redness on my cheeks and chin and some mild acne along my jawline that Im pretty positive is hormonal acne.

Foundation look terrible...
g HI all!   i have redness on my forehead, nose, and chin. I would like to use a foundation to cover it, and I've tried for like 3 years. Every time I do a full face of foundation, all the hair on my face shoes up and looks gross and it cakes. Should I wax my face or shave it or something? And I need a reliable foundation that is less than $20. I really want to figure all this out, so ANY advice is really appreciated.

Q. Oily, acne prone skin since quitting birth control. Skin regimen suggestions?
Hello! I have always had very oily skin (I can soak up 2 oil sheets and usually go for a 3rd by mid-day). I was on birth control for 10 years and recently went off of the pill. During the time I was on the pill I always used the Clinique for combination skin regimen with cleanser, toner, and moisturizer twice a day because I had occasional acne.   Since going off of the pill my acne has increased to the point where makeup isn't doing the job. It's definitely worse when I'm on my period, but generally I don't have a day where I don't have any acne. Right now I have cystic acne.   I tried the Murad acne solutions for 3 months and didn't see a difference. I recently quit that and started using Aveda, so right now my morning and evening regimen is just the Aveda foaming cleanser and their acne pads, along with the Clinique Moisture Surge, but no difference. I also use Origins Super Spot Remover.   Could someone recommend some better products that may help to clear my acne for good and to keep my oily skin at bay?
