Hi everyone! I will be starting Accutane treatment this fall for acne in my T-zone, and I will need a new daily makeup routine to deal with dry, flaky skin. I'm very, very self conscious without makeup, so going fresh-faced probably won't be an option. I have very sensitive, very pale skin, and I'm worried that my usual makeup will look weird and fake if my skin is flaking. It would be amazing if y'all could help me choose some products for daily use! Thanks! This is what makeup I wear on a daily basis: -primer -foundation -concealer -powder -blush -highlighter -bronzer -nude eyeshadow -eyeliner (pencil) -mascara -lip gloss So if y'all could help me find moisturizing products that won't look conspicuous with dry skin, that would be amazing! Oh, and one last thing: my Sephora+Pantone Color ID is 1R02! Thanks so much!
Hello darlings! I having been using the Amorepacific tinted moisturizer as a correcting cream and as my SPF. I really love it because the color matches so well with my skin tone but I have to change it because it is causing more breakouts for me and the scent is too strong. I really need something good for covering up my acne scars and acne. My skin is oily but sensitive. An organic item would be best. Thanks! xx
Can anyone recommend good makeup and skincare products that work well for someone taking accutane? I will be starting treatment in a month and I'd like to be prepared. I know it causes MAJOR skin and lip dryness and flaking of skin. If anyone has taken accutane and found good products I would be grateful for their recommendations. Thank you! L
I use ProActiv, I usually don't do it on a daily basis ( 2 times per day, all 3 steps in the morning & again before bed) i usally do it at night. Well is there any other way of getting my face clear, without having to use ProActiv? Maybe any suggestions for common household materials?
I keep getting these hard pimple like bumps on my neck and right under my chin also along my lower jawline, they are huge, painful, they never come to a head and take weeks to go away....What is this??? Im 22 and this has been happening for about a year now i need help its so annoying!!
I have several whiteheads that will not go away no matter how many times I pop them and dry them out. I also have dark spots where previous pimples were. I use my clarisonic with the acne head every other day. I would like some spot treatment suggestions as well as a recommendation for all new skin care... cleanser, toner, moisturizer..etc. My skin is very sensitive and oily. I don't think I need a full acne skin care line because my skin isn't really Bad. I just have some spots that need cleared up and need to stay cleared up. Thanks!
I need help finding a new skin regime. I have combination skin and still get regular breakouts, however I am also aware that I should probably start some sort of anti-aging treatment. There is so much out there and I have no idea where to start. Does anyone have any suggestions? I am looking at a cleanser, moisturizer, eye cream and some sort of treatment. Thanks in advance!
I just started using Clinique's acne solution kit and I saw results in just one day. Why I haven't discovery their greatness sooner? Talking about money just wasted on other products that failed me. The only thing I am wondering is Do I need to buy the Clearing Gel for blemishes? All the products in the kits says it clears blemishes. I have acne blemishes on my back and I also wonder if I could just used it on my back after using the Body bar? Would love to have clear skin, especially on my back, before the summer. Thanks
EVERYTHING I've tried, even Bareminerals, has caused acne on my face. It just keeps getting worse. EVERY TIME I put makeup on (liquid foundation, powder, blush, etc.), I have new breakouts. And yes, I do remove everything at night and cleanse my face. Any help/tips?
Help! I used the Glamglow Supermud a few times in one week, hoping it would completely improve my skin. Quite the opposite- my forehead is completely broken out with acne that I have never gotten before. Has anyone else had this problem? HOW DO I SOLVE IT?!
I have a bit of T-zone acne due to peri-menopausal hormones. I have also noticed significant new wrinkles around my mouth and fine lines around my eyes. Every time I try to use something for the wrinkles it seems to cause a break-out. My acne treatments seem to work fine, but what can use for wrinkles that won't cause break-outs?
I have so many small bumps all over my face. I don't know if it's keratosis pilaris or milia or clogged pores I just really want to get rid of them. I've always suffered from acne, and I've come along way, it's just these **bleep** small bumps!
I usually only get a monthly hormonal break out on my chin. I bought the Mia a month ago and my skin has been purging ever since. I have been breaking out for 4 weeks straight. How long does this purge usually last? Is that what Im experiancing, or do I need to switch to a sensitive brush head, or stop using the Mia all together? I havent changed anything else in my routine, I'm using the same cleanser, the same moisturizer, same serum, same foundation, same everything. Please help.
I have severe combination skin: very dry in most areas, normal almost everywhere else, but with acne. It's also very sensitive. Is there any moisturizer (non-SPF as it irritates my skin) that will properly moisturize without clogging my pores or giving me more acne?
Has anyone had this problem? I started doing Insanity so I'm basically sweating 40+ mins almost every day. My skin type is combination leaning more on the dry side. I've never had a problem with acne before but I've noticed that I've been getting pimples or little bumps on my forehead. I know its caused by the sweat because if I dont work out for a couple days, then the acne does clear up a bit. I do try to wash my face immediately after working out and I'm considering switching to an acne cleanser but am afraid that it might be too harsh for my skin. Any tips or suggestions?
I have suffered from acne (particularly cystic acne) since I was a teenager, and I feel like I have finally resolved most of those issues, however, now I suffer from horrible skin texture. Rarely do I have acne surface my skin as white heads or blackheads, but instead my skin texture is full of extremely small bumps (like tiny pimples dwelling under the skin, mostly on my cheeks and chin), acne scarring, and hyper pigmentation. I know there are products for the scarring, but what do I do about the overall texture of my skin and these pesky little bumps?! In the light the skin on my cheeks and chin looks anything but smooth. It looks rough and bumpy like fine sandpaper because of all the small bumps. I am nearly convinced that these bumps just turn into more little scars, since I rarely get acne anymore but continue to have red scarring all over my face. Please help!!
Lately I've been hearing nothing but great reviews on the Clarisonic brushes and I have been thinking about purchasing one but the $149+ price has got me thinking twice about it. I would like to hear some of your opinions on the brushes and how well they do or don't work. I have veryyyy oily skin, rosacea and my nose is blackhead central. I also have large pores around my nose. I have tried a lot of products to get rid of my blackheads but none seem to work. I don't really have any acne its just blackheads that i get most of the time around and on my nose. So I am just wondering about how well the brushes work for getting rid blackheads and if the brushes help with making pores look smaller? Thanks!
I was wondering as to what you guys think are the best products for blackheads. I have a lot on my cheeks and nose and I want to get rid of them. So what do you think are products that are worth the money?
I'm african american, I have an oily t-zone and sensitive skin. I'm looking for a moisturizer that has SPF15 to 20, and is a oil control mattifier. I tend to look oily in the summer and would like to maintain that. I'm also looking for a good foundation for women of color, that has hues of yellow. I have golden hues in my skin, but most foundations for black women have red in the base, which tends to dull my complexion. Lastly, I'd like a recommendation for a good bronzer.
I get hormonal, cystic acne along my jawline. I don't want to take birth control forever, and I am looking for skincare products that will reduce/eliminate the cysts. Any ideas if the Murad line works for this? Thanks!
I have been struggling with acne scars for the past few years now. It seems like any time acne emerges on my face it ALWAYS leaves a mark once it goes away even though I dont pop it or anything I just let it run its course and go away and it is VERY frustrating as you could imagine. I have tried a few "dark spot" serums which have helped fade some scars slightly but not much of a difference. Also, they arent really dark spots they are a reddish/pink it makes it look like there is a pimple there still but there isnt. Its just a flat reddish/pink spot where the acne used to be. It makes it look like it is active acne when in fact it is not it is just the old place where it was before. These scars or "spots" are the only reason that I wear foundation and I wish I knew of a product that could get rid of them so I wouldnt have to continue wearing foundation a lot. Any suggestions? Also, The previous serum i used was the Dr. Brandt dark spot serum which again faded very slightly but not much. Looking for better results in a new producut!!
This might be kind of long. I was using Differin from derm and it stopped working so I started using a Salyclic acid cleanser from Biore and it's kept my skin mostly clear for the last 6 weeks. I also use a Clarisonic. Now I have three cystic pimples on my cheeks (I NEVER used to breakout on my cheeks), two on my chin and I came home today and found I have a new one on my forehead. I also have t ton on tiny under the skin bumps on my chin. What is going on?? My skin wasn't even this barowen I went to the derm the first time! Is there anything you would recommend? Mask, treatment, anything. My skin is also pretty oily. Thanks!
