Hey y'all! I've been looking around this message board for the past half hour or so and I figured I would ask my own question, sorry if it's already been answered! I'm 22 years old and up until about a year ago I had perfect skin, I had the occasional break out but that was mostly around my period. Now? My entire chin and both cheeks are full of blemishes, scars, white heads, it's ridiculous! I don't know what to do, I don't know if it's hormonal or just a circumstance of stress and poor diet. I have combination skin (I think) sometimes it looks dry, other times it's like it's oozing oil (sorry!) and it's sensitive. I've tried Proactiv and it didn't work, I bought a Clarisonic brush but it didn't really help much. I don't know what works and what doesn't. If you've been through this and you've found a miracle product (I know everything is not going to work for everybody) would you please share your tips and tricks? I've heard of washing your face with something like coconut oil but I'm on the fence about that, I feel like it would just break me out more. Thank you!
I am looking to get rid of or just help my scarring. I've researched a few products like Murads post acne lightening gel, PTR gentle complexion correction pads, and Korres Wild Rose + Vitamin C Advanced Brightening Sleeping Facial but I would appreciate other opinions. It can be any type of product that has helped with your own spots. My daily routine consists of: -washing face 2x daily with Cetaphil face wash -for a scrub I use st. Ives oatmeal scrub -murad hydrating toner -tarte maracuja oil -PTR Therapeutic Sulfur Masque Acne Treatment Masque
I have recently had to change my birth control that no longer offers me acne control. I have oily combination and sensitive skin, ALL the don't want's with skin. I was hoping for a foundation/concealer that mattifys but has good coverage. I'm also looking for one the brightens my face. Seems every time I look in the mirror after applying makeup my face is dull. I'm of with a tip to open my eyes up even to make my face look brighter. The second issue I'm looking to resolve is a skin care product that helps prevent acne and balances out my skin complexion and colour. I need a toner and a cleaners. Would prefer ones already prepared in wipes or pads. A good spot treatment would be good too , however I am allergic to salicylic acid.
So recently, in the past 4 months or so I have noticed that every once in a while (maybe once a week) after washing my face at night I get this very red warm flush across my face that starts at the top of my cheeks and goes down to my chin. It looks almost like I have a sunburn, and feels uncomfortable and warm. Last night was probably the worst I have ever got it. So I have decided I need to try a new cleanser, currently I am using neutrogena naturals purifying cleanser. So my question is I have acne prone skin, it's combination, and I usually am always breaking out around my chin and jawline, is there any good sensitive skin cleanser/products for sensitive/acne prone skin ? I prefer a paraben free product under $30... But I am open to all suggestions drugstore or high end. Thank you for your time.
So, I had this "mole" that I thought was a real mole. Until, it started to grow on my face. I went to the Dr. and dermatologist and they claimed it was a cyst. I had already popped it by then.. I know, very bad of me. I thought it was a normal black head. They told me to leave it alone and it would go away. Thinking that it was already gone and scarring, I started to use Kate Somerville's Dscar. Seemed like a good thing to do at the time then it started to sting at the touch. I only used the Dscar on it about 3 times. I stopped applying anything on it, it's about a week since any product has touched it and it's more painful to the touch. So, it originally looked like a mole, I popped it, it turned into a little hole in my face, now the hole looks like it's closing and It looks as if it's forming as a pimple. I never felt anything like it before and it seems to be getting bigger. What should I do? Has anyone had experience with this? I'm planning on seeing my dermatologist in 2 weeks but I thought I would give BT a shot.
I tend to be prone to break outs, whether a new product is involved or not...but I was wondering if you all will immediately stop using the product at the sign of a break out and go back to the old one, or do you ride it out and see if it passes?
I am just looking for a recommendation for a nice, semi affordable mask. I have combination skin -oily t zone but dry chin and normal cheeks. I would like to try something targeting for purifying, acne, and just overall nice skin. Have any suggestions?
Hello there! I had acne for almost 8 years and now I do not get that many acne but I have deep dark acne and small acne holes. What should I do to lighten those scars? Something I can do at home other than visiting a skin doctor as I do go for regular peels. Please help!
I know that Sephora doesn't sell Illamasqua anymore, Nordstrom never has, and now I see that it is no longer on Bloomingdales website. Does anyone know where Illamasqua can be found in the States? I am definitely not paying international shipping from the UK.
I have been noticing that my skin is starting to break out and it makes me very self-conscious cause I feel like that's the first thing people notice when they look at me. I would like some opinions on a good skin clearing kit, masks and acne friendly makeup. Please help me get better looking skin!!
Its such a blessing to see that positive symbol on your test when you've been trying to conceive. For weeks you glow - mostly due to "morning" (All-day) sickness. Now with the lovely changes my skins seems to have jumped back to the land of a teenager. SPOTS everywhere. On my chest and face and gosh does it make you feel un attractive. I had terrible acne in high school and happily in my early twenties this calmed down. I tried using clean and clear which seemed to aggravate the situation to a while new level. I don't enjoy caking on makeup but lately it helps me just get out the door - - Any suggestions on getting my skin back to some normality?
I love her makeup she by far has some of the best products available and doesnt get the recognition she deserves I'am a huge mally beauty fan lipstick , concealer , eyeshadow and all highly recommend her products to everyone here you can thank me later.
Every time I pluck the odd hair on my chin or on my eyebrows I get a pimple . It's so upsetting, I've tried applying alcohol to my skin afterwards but my skin is so sensitive I have to wash it off before it starts to burn. Does anyone have any solutions to this problem?
So I have a really big event coming up in about a month and I really want to get rid of my acne scars since I hate the look of make-up caked onto my face (I have super oily skin so it is always noticeable) My routine right now is fairly simple. I wipe off make up with tea tree oil wipes I wash with Jack Black's deep dive moisturize with Origin's Night-a-mins and use glamglow supermud clearing treatment twice a week What products do you reccomend me adding/switching?
I started using my clarisonic a month ago with the sensitive brush head, once a night. I developed small pimples on my forehead and cheeks about two weeks into it. Now, I have weird bumps just about all over my face that are slightly itchy. They seem to be under the skin everywhere. It's very upsetting being that some people are getting improved texture from the clarisonic and mine is horrible. I switched to the delicate brush two days ago but it feels just as rough and I haven't noticed a difference? Do you think these bumps are from irritation? Has this happened to any of you? Do any of you use the delicate brush and has it made a difference? PLEASE HELP
i HAVE A SAMPLE OF JOSIE MORAN ARGAN OIL AND WAS WONDERING IF I CAN MIX A LITTLE OF THAT WITH MY MOISTURIZER . i JUST DON'T WANT TO PUT OIL STRAIGHT ON MY SKIN I THINK IT MIGHT BE TO GREASY FOR MY SKIN.
I only use Proactive + in the mornings when I know I will be inside.(When I'm outside I use just SPF) I only use the Pore targeting Treatment and the Complexion perfecting Hydrator. I don't use the cleanser because it is too harsh for my skin. I have oily skin and the Proactive does not help with that, but it helps with my acne, so I still use it, I just make sure to carry blotting papers with me. I wanted to put the Ole Henriksen Truth Serum Collagen Booster with it to help with the sun damage I have. Will that be ok for my Acne Prone, sun damaged, oily skin? Or will they counteract each other and be ineffective, or would it be to harsh on my skin?
UGH--so busy today and didn't get a chance to check out the sale section today There was a huge markdown on the Tarte cheek stain set and the MUFE set but it looks like its out of stock already! Still--lots of other goodies at great prices there! Lots off OCC and the some Smashbox LE items
I have been struggling to find a good face wash for my face and I was wanting some advice as to what all you beautiful ladies out there do to keep your skin clear and acne free. Right now I am using Kate Somerville detox daily cleanser and I have been starting to break out badly on my forehead and chin. I also use clean and clear advantage spot and it has not been working very well on my stubborn pimples and break outs. I have been feeling very overwhelmed with all the products out there and I know it is going to take some time for me to find what works, but if any one has any advice as to what they do that would be great! I have oily skin and I tend to break out on my forehead and chin. And when I get pimples or breakouts, they are the huge, red, painful ones that hurt!
Peter Thomas Roth Camu Camu Power C x 30™ Vitamin C Brightening Sleeping Mask Yes or no while on Accutane? I have acne scars left over from my Acne. I am still in my first month of Accutane. Or do you have any other product reccomendations for acne scars? I have asked my dermatologist if I need to avoid certain products and all she said was to avoid topical treatments. I have had to change my skin care because my skin was getting irritated from my Fresh Soy cleanser as well as the Korres rose+vitamin C sleeping facial. I am now using the Boscia cool cleaning oil and the Korres greek yogurt moisturizers. If you guys have any other suggestions please let me know thank you!
Since I have super sensitive acne-prone skin and break out to kinda every product, I'm really concerned ingredients before any purchases. I heard stearic acid clogs pores and Shea butter also cause acne. But most of product including moisturizers and foundation contains stearic acid. As I mentioned above, I have very sensitive breakouts-prone skin and very dehydrated oily combo skin ( I think). I want to know what ingredients cause break outs and what specific ingredient I should avoid. If you have knowledge of any of these, please help me!!
