I'm looking for a recommendation for my skincare. I have oily skin and used to struggle with bad acne. My acne is not as bad anymore, however, I still get the occasional breakouts on my cheeks. My main concern is my acne scars and dark spots that remain from the years of acne when I was a teenager. I'm looking for some recommendations for a skincare routine that would help brighten my skin and help the overall look / texture as well. Open to serums, oils, moisturizers, or anything that you have used in combination that you saw great results with! I've looked into a couple of products such as the sunday riley good genes + the luma sleeping oil, the ole henriksen truth serum, or the vinoperfect claudalie serum. Looking for suggestions! Thanks !!! :
I have really tough skin. I'm 38 with aging mostly oily skin with some small dry patches, some acne and wrinkles/fine lines. I've tried lots of treatments with little to no results (Drunk Elephant TLC Framboos Glycolic Night Serum, Sunday Riley Good Genes, Dr. Gross Alpha Beta Daily Peel, Clinique Acne + Line Correcting Serum, Ole Henriksen's Invigorating Night Gel, retinol serums, etc.). I've used these treatments for at least 3+ months each and mostly nothing. I've used a lot of different moisturizers too. Right now my night routine is: Cleanse - usually Boscia's Thermal Black Cleanser or MakeUp-BreakUp Cool Cleansing Oil if I'm wearing makeup Tone - Pixi Glow Tonic Serums - PTR's AHA/BHA Acne Clearing Gel (just started this) with Sunday Riley's Good Genes on top Moisturizer - Shiseido Ibuki Refining Moisturizer Enriched with a drop of Lipidol Overnight Face Oil Eye Cream - whatever sample I have, right now Lancôme Genifique Yeux Youth Activating Eye Cream My day routine is: Cleanse - Boscia's Thermal Black Cleanser Tone - Thayers Witch Hazel Rose Petal Toner Serums - Oz Naturals Vitamin C Facial Serum, PTR's AHA/BHA Acne Clearing Gel (new) and Hylamide SubQ Anti-Aging Advanced Serum Moisturizer - Murad's Anti-Aging Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 30 PA+++ or Paula's Choice Resist Super-Light Daily Wrinkle Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 30 I wait until each treatment is dry before putting the next one on. My skin is being maintained but I'm looking for something with some real results. I'm not asking for a miracle but it would be nice to find something that actually improves my skin. Any suggestions?
I have redness from blemishes and acne scarring on my cheeks and chin area. I'm looking for products to help to lessen the redness. I'm also looking an everyday, lightweight product to cover for summer months; such as a BB or CC cream. I'm a full-time student, so keeping it within a reasonable budget is a priority, but I will pay a decent amount for the right product! Thanks!
I am having trouble developing a skin care routine to go with my newly found active lifestyle. I've never had much of a routine besides buying whatever is on sale at the pharmacy (ugh I know) but now that I'm getting older and can finally afford things I was hoping to get some tips and tricks from much more knowledgeable people than me I typically exercise twice a day, 5-ish days a week. I run + lift in the morning and do hot yoga in the evenings. I'm a fan of sweating a lot (by a lot I mean occasionally getting prune fingers) but I am not as much of a fan of my post-workout face... in the mornings it is usually red and bumpy and it is difficult to put on make up for work (which I only do like 3 times a week) and after hot yoga it is even more red, dry and I'm self conscious of putting cream or anything on it cause my pores are super super open. Thank you for advice everyone. I really really appreciate it!
The time has come for me to upgrade my son's skin care routine to something that acknowledges the onset of puberty along with his sensitive skin and eczema. I was thinking about First Aid Beauty but was wondering if anyone had other ideas?
Does anyone know if there's going to be a new Sephora Favorites sun safety kit for this year? The one currently available is the one from last year and people were complaining that items were expired. I would love to snag a new one! Also I wasn't sure where to post this.
Hi, I recently moved and am suffering from heat rash on my face and shoulders. Can anyone recommend some solutions? Right now, I try to avoid direct sunlight especially during the hottest times of the day. Also, I wash my face and allow it to air dry. It's really giving me a hard time. Please help!
What is the best moisturizer/skin care routine for sensitive, combination skin? My face randomly breaks out in hives and gets red, dry patches and previous products I have used have made this worse. Other parts of my face like my nose get extremely oily though so I'm not sure what products to use. Please help!!
I got a sample of the Tata's Resurfacing Mask in my play box this month. Used it and had an allergic reaction of hives all over my face (that are still here hours later and progressively got worse.) I do not have sensitive skin. I have never had an allergic reaction to anything in my life. My skin is fairly well balanced. Has anyone else had this problem?
Recently I've been having an issue where my eyes will suddenly start burning and watering ferociously. (Seriously. I look like I'm bawling.) Over the last couple of weeks I think I've made the connection between the burning/watering and using facial sunscreen. It started at my daughter's track meet after I applied my gold standard Neutrogena sunscreen. I initially assumed I had applied it too close to my eyes because I used this product often over previous summers. But then it happened again a few days later when I used Coola's Setting Spray. Then again when I tried Murad Invisiblur. If I go without sunscreen it doesn't happen. But, what doesn't make sense is that the irritation doesn't just happen shortly after application either. I can be at Target 8 hours later and the burning and watering will start as I'm walking through the parking lot. (Thank heaven it was in the parking lot. Anyone who saw me probably just thought I spent too much lol!) Thoughts? Suggestion? I'm very fair and can't go without sunscreen over the summer!
Hey everyone! So I'm in desperate need for some holy grail product recommendations of ALL kinds! Face washes, serums, moisturizers, masks, toners, ANYTHING YOU GOT! Plot twist: They need to be for oily/combination skin! Thanks!
I would consider myself to have oily skin, but at the same time it feels SO dry and tight - with or without makeup! I think my skin is trying to compensate the lack of moisture with producing more oil? (Even though I drink plenty fluids throughout the day...). So, I thought maybe investing in an overnight mask in place of my night cream. I don't know if using an overnight mask every night will clog my pores, but I am out of ideas!!! Any advice/product recommendations are greatly appreciated! Thanks
Hello, I'm 26 years old, I have a kinda mix skin, a little more oily in the T zone... I recently heard that at this age, the skin little by little stops producing collagen, so I wanted to prevent eye's wrinkles..and also face's...but my skin its very delicate too, some creams or lotions kind of burn me or produce me acne...so I really don't know what can I use...(I'm also sometimes following my derma doctor treatment for some pimples and that, he forbid me to consume vitamin B or complex B ) I hope you can help me to the wrinkle and oilyskin issue.
So I need major help with my pores. I have tried skincare products, makeup products, and even different skin treatments (micro derm/ laser) and nothing will combat my pores. They are either clogged, expanded, and just look like holes. I really need help.
Hi, I am 20 years old and I don't wear makeup. However, I am starting to take care of my skin! I noticed that my pores - around my nose and my chin - have been really big and visible. I use pore strips every week but it doesn't seem to minimize my pores. Any cheap & afforable product or ways to help minimize pores? Thanks!
I use Origins charcoal mask, and I love it. I can see that it's working because the stuff is sticking out of my pores after I wash it off. My question is - how do I remove all those whiteheads that are trying to get out after using this awesome mask? I don't want to just put product on top of it...any suggestions? Thanks!
Hello all! I'm on the hunt for a cooling face spray that I can use with/without makeup (so it doesn't necessarily have to be a makeup setting one, I already have one that I like for that purpose). I have moderate to severe rosacea so I am looking for something I can spritz on during the day when I'm getting a flare-up, after exercising, or just any point during the day I'm getting a little red that will give me a cooling sensation and that will actually help the problem a bit. I have used the Evian spray bottles, but I am wondering if there is something a little more 'medicated' if that's the word, that will help fix the problem besides just water. I also will be flying at least once a week for this next year, so I'm also looking for something I can spritz on during my flights to stay hydrated! Thank you!
I Any recommendations for puffy red/black under eye circles? I have tried numerous products, i'm almost at the point of getting some injections to rid myself of this....even when I wear makeup they still bleed through! Once I over slept and couldn't do my makeup and someone thought I got punched in the face (seriously) im desperate...
I'm looking for a sunscreen that won't break me out and doesn't leave me with a ghastly white pallor. I typically wear a tinted moisturizer or bb/cc cream...I keep switching, looking for the perfect one... and while they usually do have sunscreen built in, I need a proper sunscreen to layer underneath when I know I won't be inside most of the day. I have combination skin, can get a little oily in the t zone, and I find that a lot of sunscreens (and moisturizers for that matter) make me break out, either rapidly in little whiteheads or after a few days with big nasty deep pimples. I've been using the Shiseido Urban Environment 42 spf and it's ok but I'm nearing the end of the bottle and ready to try something else. I know, this is the million dollar question, I'm looking for the thing everyone wants. What's your best sunscreen recommendation?
I turned 39 at the end of January. I've always had very large pores. I feel like they're even more noticeable these days. I've also feel like my facial skin is rough, on my cheeks, chin & nose. Not exactly dry, or flaky. More like sandpaper rough. It feels a little like my big pores are constantly pushing out blackheads. I want to just scrape my nail along the roughest spots. I know better than to do that. I use a Clarisonic Smart Profile, currently with the Deep Pore brush head, every day. I was using Arbonne's Re9 facial line, which worked great up until about 6 months ago. For Christmas, I got both Drunk Elephant value sets to try them out & see if that line would fix any problems. No change, at all. Except for a couple of spots being rougher, if I use the Night Serum every day. I use a few different masks. All of the GlamGlow ones, mostly. I try to do at least one a week, if not two. I need some advice on what else I could possibly try. I'm hoping to not have to spend a ton of money, but know good skin care costs a fair amount. Thanks in advance.
I do like my skin care routine I have now and it limits my breakouts. Just wondering if anyone has gone above and gotten any treatments done or any thoughts on them. I know this is a very open ended question, but just seeing what others do. I am oily/combination.
So as the seasons change my skin always throws a wobbly, to make it worse now I have flu! My lips are dry and cracked despite using a thick layer of FAB lip therapy 4 or 5 times a day, my nose is raw from wiping and my skin is so dry. I feel bad enough cause I can't hear, breath etc... but the feeling of crud all over my fave is the worst. Any ideas for recovery products? Skin softening masks etc?
