Q. Makeup for Accutane users?
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!

Q. New product/skin care routine for combo/oily/very sensitive acne skin?
I'm on acne medication right now (Differin in the evening, clindamycin phosphate topical lotion in the morning, and an oral antibiotic) and my acne has gotten a lot better! However, my skin has now transitioned from just oily to combo/oily/acne-prone and very very sensitive.    In the evening I use the acne line from Mario Badescu skin care and I love love love it. In the morning I use a drugstore cleanser called Biore because I think it helped with my VERY oily skin a little bit before I went on the meds.    But I've noticed that both cleansers (MB and Biore) have stung/burned a bit. My skin doesn't react to it the instant I put it on, but more like after I start rubbing it into my skin a bit (with a very gentle hand,too.)    So I'm looking for a cleanser (1 for both M/E is fine, but 2 seperate ones are okay too,) that helps keep my skin clear without any acne-fighting ingredients because my skin's already getting that from my acne meds. I want a gentle cleanser that keeps my skin clear, and also helps with a lot of the redness, uneven skin tone/dark spots/hyper pigmentation, very large pores and oily skin that I have right now.    On top of that cleanser, are there any serums or moisturizers or something else that I could also use? I've tried a small sample of Murad's Pore and Line Hydrator and I absolutely love it. I haven't seen a difference in my pore size (because I only have a sample,) but the moisturizer is extremely light weight (more than Clinique's Dramatically Different Gel, which I've been using for MONTHS and I also really love. But I think I like Murad's better.) I've also used FAB's Anti-Redness Serum and I loved the lightweight gel feel of it. I think I might go and purchase that and use it instead of Clinique's Redness Solutions (I find it to be too heavy for my oily skin and pores.)    Any recommendations? If so, please let me know the formulation/texture of the product and how it felt and looked on your skin. Thank you!!

Q. Are there good BB or CC creams?
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

Q. Skincare recommendations
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!

Q. Clinique - Clearing Gel
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

Q. Acne from working out
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?

Q. Very small bumps all over skin, skin texture issues?
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!!

Q. Clarisonic?
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'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.

Q. Best acne scar treatment?
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!!
