Hello beauties, Years ago, during my teen years, I worked as a lifeguard at a swimming pool. Ever since that experience, unfortunately, I've had an issue with fungus on my toenails (one foot only, oddly enough). If I knew how contagious this was, I would have walked around with flipflops instead of barefoot. My podiatrist prescribed an oral antibiotic, but after treatment, the fungus reappeared. Do any of you know of anything topical that I can apply to help get rid of the fungus once and for all? I'm a very healthy and clean individual, so I'm frustrated to be dealing with such a nasty thing and would be ever so grateful for any advice/recommendations. Thanks so much in advance!
Hey ladies, I've been using the Klairs C serum for the last three months, pretty religiously and it's been amazing. However, this morning I noticed a little yellow spot inside the pipette that disposes the serum. It's too large to enter or exit the pipette so I'm fairly certain that it's a fungal growth. I tried getting a picture but it's too small and the pipette glass is too reflective for a helpful image. However, like I said, I've only had the serum and been using it for 3 months. The serum has a shelf life of 12 months from opening the bottle. Has this happened to anyone else? I purchased the serum from sokoglam in late November. Also, what do you guys think? Is it contaminated?
I'm 30, and had my first baby in October. I woke up one morning and tried to remove leftover mascara under one eye only to discover it was a "dark circle"! It's small, but looks so much like smudged make up that it's borderline trashy! What product will help help to keep it from growing? The baby sleeps through the night now, so lack of sleep won't be contributing to it anymore.
Hi! Looks like my favorite neck cream is out of stock I was using Ole Henricksen and loved it. I tried it because I started getting a texture on my neck that I didn't like...this smoothed it out considerably and made my skin so soft. I have oily skin so something that absorbs quickly and isn't too heavy would be great. The reviews just confuse me. I don't want to spend a small fortune either. Thanks in advance for your help!
I have two issues that have been bothering me lately... one is my dark hereditary under eye circles, and the other is large pores that appear like they are filled with blackheads all the time. I have decided I want to try the Giorgio Armani Master Corrector.. should I use the pink (shade 1) or orange (2) for my circles which can be blueish but mostly are just brownish? Secondly, you can probably see in the picture that I have enlarged pores all the way up towards my under eyes and on the part of my nose that is showing. I don't believe theres any way to shrink pores... but is there something I should add to my skincare routine? I'm 24 years old with dry skin, and currently use Cerave Face Wash, Clinique Clarifying Lotion 2, a liquid BHA 2% exfoliator at night, paula's choice benzoyl peroxide treatment as needed for acne, and moisturize with Clinique Dramatically Different Lotion + at night, and use Clinique Moisture Surge Intense in the morning.
My boyfriend gets red, irritated skin in the winter. He says it is dry but there is no noticeable dryness. He uses cetaphil cream and aquaphor but the skin is still red on most days. I had him do a charcoal mask with me and it seemed to help but the redness returned the next day. Any suggestions on products he can use daily to reduce the redness and irritation during the winter months?

Hello, I am a competitive swimmer with normal but extremely sensitive skin. I spend close to 20 hours in a chlorinated pool a week and my face gets dry to the point it is constantly flaking off. It also becomes red and blotchy as well (similar to an allergic reaction rash). Can anyone recommend any products to reduce redness? Right now I am just using a ton of Vasaline. Thanks!
I've heard such great things about the Too Cool For School egg cream hydration mask. I want to love it but I woke up this morning with a terrible rash all over my face. It's tiny little red bumps everywhere. It's not itchy but it is sensitive and tight feeling. I don't know what I should do now to correct the problem. Help please. So the products I used last night: - Egg Cream hydrating face mask. This was my first time using this mask. After I used the mask, I let the remaining product sink into my skin. -Drunk Elephant b-hydra intensive hydration gel. I put this on about an hour after finishing the face mask. I've been using this for months without any issues. I don't know if it was just the mask or if it's a combination of the mask followed by my moisturizer. I just need some hello getting my skin back to normal. I have no idea what I should be doing to calm this thing down.
I've been using dr Dennis gross peel pads and they helped my skin so much !! I decided to get the ferculic acid + retinol serum and moisturizer ( since it says follow up with a moisturizer from their brand ). I didn't notice a difference in the first three days ( I wasn't expecting any so soon anyway, I know it takes time ) anyway I put the glam glow mask on ( the white one ) and the next day I woke up with small tiny bumps all over my face! with foundation they are really noticeable and under light it's super noticeable! Idk what to do how how to get rid of them!! Should I stop using the serum and moisturizer? I'm guessing mixing the ferculic acid + retinol with what ever is in glam glow wasn't a good idea !! What should I do ? I don't want to go to a dermatologist because they made my first worse last time !
I started noticing that I'm getting spider veins on my thighs, some are bad enough that I can actually feel the indentations. I'm 20 years old and in the normal weight range (on the low side, if anything). I know my grandmother has them pretty bad, but she's also pretty heavy so I don't know how hereditary it is, but my 14 year old sister is starting to get them too. Does anyone have any recommendations on treatments, prevention methods, or just general advice? I am probably going to go to a doctor soon, but wanted to see if anyone had any experience with this. TIA!!
My husband has a skin disorder, something like scorisis and it is on his legs and feet. His skin is very sensitive and when he take showers the scars are moistened and they become open like scratching a scab and itches terribly. Right now he has to keep his skin dry and cant get to anxious or stressed. Any ideas or suggestions ?
After I wash my face, I notice that my skin gets dry. I notice when I try to apply my make up it looks really flakey and it doesn't go on very smooth. Is there a good primer that you recommend to put on before I apply my make up so it goes on more smooth?
Hi! I have very fair skin so any time a pimple goes away (which thankfully isn't often anymore) it leaves a red spot behind. I've tried a number of products but they either break me out or just don't work for me. Any suggestions?
I am 67, and now have acne, and ingrown hairs in the acne . My doctor put me on oral meds, and lotion for my face, and this did not help. So I went to Webmd.com and they suggested , products for day and night with Salicylic acid, and Glycolic acid. I have fair skin, freckles, and some very dry flaky skin in area's. I am looking at Drunk Elephant's products. They have great reviews. Does anyone have any other idea's? Thanks for any help
Hi All, I was wondering if you could give me some recommendations of face products for incredibly sensitive skin that is dry. (Also a lot of redness) I currently use the philosophy purity cleanser and it is starting to sting my skin (this started to happen very recently - before this it was perfect, no stinging and no redness) I use the Kiehls sensitive skin moisturizer and it has also started really stinging my skin and making it incredible red. I've used in the past and they all were not sensitive enough; First aid beauty moisturizer Jose Maran argon oil and milk both bother my skin ALL the glam glow products really irritate (which is so sad because I love the tightening one) There is a black face mask (cant remember the name - i want to say origins but probably not) also no good. - i am forgetting a ton of stuff Anything with any type of acid/chemical burns and makes my face turn red. I've come to the point where I've almost stopped using alot because it really bothers my skin BUT I NEED some moisturizer skin gets really dry in the winter. ANY suggestions would be sooo helpful!! I've come across this Kopari line - any good? THank you Steph
Hi!! So, I have freckles all over my face, except for right underneath my eyes. Instead, I have dark circles and the "darkest" area is right at the corner of my eye. I currently use face primer, bb cream and concealer, but I still have the dark area. Do you have any recommendations?
I have used tea trea oil before but I think I might of applied it wrong. Its may be that I just applied to much to my skin but for some reason my skin continuously burned for 10 minuets. I have heard many great things about Using this product but i'm not sure. Can anyone tell me if they have any similar stories or if tea trea oil worked for them?
I have researched tanning moisturizers for sensitive skin and have seen great reviews on Vita Liberata tanning night mask. Is it at all possible to obtain a sample of this product so I can test results and reaction to it? the price is excellent as long as I am able to try it first. thank you in advance - carol
For years now, I have been having what seems to be an allergic reaction to most skincare products and makeup. What happens when I apply my serum and cream or makeup is my eyes water real bad and I have a lot of tears throughout the day. My eyes are never swollen or red though. I noticed that certain products make my eyes water worse than others. For example, eyeshadow primer (Stay Don't Stray, Benefit) or liquid eyeliner (NYC) or especially when I wear foundation... That makes my eyes water the most. (The skincare products I'm using now are the Estee Lauder Advanced Night repair serum and Tidal Brightening Enzyme Water Cream by Sunday Riley). I've tried hypoallergenic products in the past but most of them make my eyes water anyway. I was wondering if anyone has any advice as to how I could exactly find out why my eyes water so much from so many products? Or if there is some kind of test I could ask a doctor for to find out what my allergies are? I was also wondering if simple eyedrops would help, perhaps Visene for allergies? Also has anyone else experienced such allergies, if so I'm really hoping to hear your advice. Thanks! Spoiler (Highlight to read)
I had been using a sample of SK-II Essence but think that it is too expensive. Is anyone else using it and how can I achieve results from it? Thinking of buying $99 kit for now. Second, I am 39 and can say I have minimum lines/wrinkles but have noticed that the area under my eyes had tuned REALLY dry. Currently using Algenist balm morning and night plus Supergoop eye cream/37 SPF and after a few hours with make up it starts looking dry again. Looking for a good product to help this area and achieve a better look when using make or without it.
