Skincare recommendations for blackheads?
  My skin isn't oily. But I have a huge blackhead problem. If I'm not in the mirror trying to extract them all for like an hour every 2 days it looks like somebody sprinkled pepper on my nose and ew. I'm open to anything- face washes, masks, anything that will help. I was using Neutrogena's blackhead eliminating daily scrub but it was a bit drying. Most Neutrogena stuff seems to be for me. I currently don't have any sort of skin routine but it seems to me I should probably start.

At home treatments for PIH?
Hi so I'm finally marrying my best friend and father of my kids and I want to look beautiful but it feels like it's taking forever to see big results. I used to have adult acne but have finally gotten in under control over the past year. I have been getting microdermabrasions for the past three months at my dermatologists office and switched it up today to a luminizing chemical peel. The peel is still on (stays on for 6 hours)  but of course I am not seeing too much change my pores seem to be less noticeable but that's it. What other at home peels or treatment serums works well on PIH?

Help finding moisturizer... oily/dry patches
Hi! So I am in urgent need of a new moisturizer!  Some info: I used to say that I just have very oily skin but I now have dry patches under my lips (and a little around) (I have been using Aveeno Clear Complexion and Aveeno Daily moisturizer but they may have been causing redness so I stopped them after a month or two.) I used a Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief sample and now around my lips and under my eyebrow bone are flaky. All of these stung or burned in some way when I was putting them on.   I wash my face twice a day with Aveeno Clear Complexion Face Wash and use Acanya in the morning and Atralin at night for my acne.    I don't know what to do, nothing I use seems to be okay for me.  Does anyone suggest anything?? A different face wash? The dermatologist said Aveeno was a good brand but I'm not sure if it's the best for me.    (I also usually wear Sephora 8 hr Wear Perfect Cover Concealor and their Baked Face Compact Powder)   Thank you so, so much!

How to make my skin smoother?
Hi guys I'm only 18 years old, and only break out occasionally. My main issue with my skin is that it has a weird texture. It's almost like really teeny tiny goosebumps in certain areas of my face. I've tried tons of primers, but it still shows through with my foundations on top. Is there maybe some sort of face wash to help smooth out my skin? I'm open to any ideas, thanks!

First Aid Beauty Cleanser ph level
So I'm testing out cleansers and I read on FAB's website that their cleanser has a ph of 6.5, only slightly more acidic that your face. While your body may have a ph of 7, the skin mantle has an acidity level of what, 4.5-5.5? Lower than 6.5, anyway.   I'm really dithering about whether or not to even try this product. I mean, if they got the basic ph of the face wrong, what else is next? I have acne-prone skin and I have found that the best way to avoid breakouts is to really keep my skin acidic.   Does anyone else pay attention to the ph levels of products?

SPECIAL GUEST anon232 / SPECIAL GUEST SPECIAL GUEST / replied

Acne Scar Treatment + Current Acne
I'm looking for a serum/cream that will help with acne scars that also works for someone with current acne.  I have been using Clinique Dark Spot Corrector and while I do see a difference, I frequently get pimples still so the results are not as impressive.  I do use an acne treatment and use that before the dark spot corrector.  A Clinique sales associate said to do that.   More about my skin: late 20s, gets hormonal acne; oily/combination skin that tends towards dry in the winter.     I would appreciate any suggestions!

The skin around my eyes turns brown when i wear sunscreen or makeup- HELP
I have pretty sensitive skin in general, so I have an idea of what products work for me. However I cannot figure out this issue and I need some advice/product recommendations. The skin around my eyes turns dull and brown-ish whenever I wear sunscreen or concealer (which is almost every day). I have a good night-time moisturizing regimen that repairs this, so usually when i wake up in the morning my whole face looks even, but when i put on sunscreen i look in the mirror 5 minutes later and my eye skin has turned darker and it looks terrible.This started as a teenager when i didn't wear sunscreen, but my skin would react in the same way to undereye concealer. When I go a few days without makeup/sunscreen this goes away and my skin looks fine. My suspicion is that it's reacting to some chemical, because this also happens when i use eye cream (I now use pure argan oil on my eyes) so I guess I'm looking for "natural" sunscreens but I don't really know exactly what ingredient to avoid, etc. If anyone has this problem or something similar please give me some advice! Also product recommendations! Thanks

Foot care,,, tried everything still looking!!
Let me start off by saying that my feet are sooooooooo much work! I have tried my micro pedi amd it's not doing as good as had hoped! This month I bought the Soap and Glory heel genius and so far it's not doing much. I have rough heels and have to file them twice a week to keep them soft! Is there any other products that you have tried that really works? I'm so frustrated and sick of spending all this time and money for products that don't work, lol.

large pores and acne problems... help?
I am searching for some help with my skincare routine.  I have large pores and acne prone skin, and would like some recommendations to help solve these problems.  I'm just going to go ahead and list as much detail to help:  I'm 32, and large pores run in my family.  My daily skincare routine: AM- wipe with washcloth (warm water only).  This is something I started a couple of months ago and it has helped with breakouts a good bit.  PM- Sephora makeup remover on eyes, Simple foaming face wash in the shower.  I use Simple gel moisturizer as I think I need it, but not every day.  If I need to spot treat I either use Neutrogena spot treatment or Mint Julep mask dabbed on acne spots.  My acne is hormonal and sometimes cystic, but never severe. My skin is also sensitive and does not care for a salicylic acid treatment at all.   Makeup- I use POREfessional primer (recent purchase that is NOT working).  This primer has not helped with my pores and seems today (day 3) that it is beginning to irritate my skin (slight pink color and tingly).  I use Bare Minerals matte powder foundation, concealer, and translucent powder.   Any suggestions from skincare to makeup would be greatly appreciated.  I am ready to be excited about my makeup and not frustrated!

Stila Stay all Day 10 in1 Illuminating BB
Back in March I had asked some questions about Rosacea.       Since then I have started seeing a Holistic Dr. who is kinda putting me back together again. My skin looks 90% better (maybe more, but I am critical of myself), BUT I still have some slight redness here & there.  Of course my skin is dryer now since it is cold weather (& indoor heat).   So anyway, I just NOW have gotten to my mini tube of the Stila 10 in 1 HD Illuminating BB Cream & I love it (so far). I have used it about 5 times (maybe more) and my skin looks good..... especially in pic's ( ).  Wish I hadn't gave the other mini away to my cousin now! hehe   I was wondering if you guys could chime in on what you think a/b this BB for my very needy skin? That way I know whether or not to buy the full size (I don't see anymore mini's), OR if there is something w/ the same concept (filter, idk what u call it) that would be Better/ Healthier for my skin? *Btw, I am still using the FAB Red Clay Cleanser, Algenist Dry Oil Serum & the REN Global Day Cream moisturizer (a/b out). Should I get the Jurlique for when I run out of the REN (loved the sample of the Night Recovery), or do you guy's have better suggestions?   Thanks Everyone in Advance!

Sincerely different skin types on one face...
So my face, as much as I love it, is really starting to bother me because it's so immensely different and I have no clue how I'd want to go about fixing it. My forehead is oily, my cheeks are normal, the top of my nose is oily, but the sides are so dry they're flaking. As well, I'm breaking out in areas that are both oily and not oily... what can I do to try and balance it all out and get rid of the break outs?

It seems to take me A very long time to rub it in until all of the beads are gone and turned their darker green. Some parts of my face dry as I am applying the mask to other areas. I then go back to put on a thicker coat over the already dry first layer. When I wash it off I don't see much of a difference in my face. Can anyone give me some insight please?

Allergy to Eye Creams
Hi all,   I am hoping some people here may be able to offer some advice or insight into a little problem I have.   About 10 years ago I started having allergic reactions to any creams near my eyes. They were pretty bad events that left me with my eyelids swollen shut and peeling skin both on my eyelid and the skin under my eye. Eventually I figured out a routine that worked and the problem resolved itself with very gentle skincare and no creams near my eyes. Makeup itself has never seemed to trigger the problem.   In the past couple of years it seemed as though I had 'grown out' of the problem and I have been able to use a wider variety of products with no problem but I have shied away from eye creams. I am now in my early 30s and am interested in introducing eye creams into my regimen. Last night I tried a sample of Benefit's It's Potent and within a couple minutes I could feel the burning. I washed it off but the damage was done and find myself with swollen eyes today.   My questions are these: Is this a problem that other people experience? Are there other very gentle eye creams people can recommend (I have samples of Algenist and Clarins at home but am now a little wary)? Do I even need an eye cream?   I realize this is a little long so thank you in advance for taking the time read this!

Intense, hot redness
The redness I get burns off makeup if it gets too hot. It tends to develop on the lower part of my cheek and I've always had it. Clinique had a stick a few years ago (I think it's a powder now) that used to cover it until it would burn off (by that I mean, that portion of my face would get so heated the makeup would disappear) but, being yellow, (on a VERY white person) it never blended well. I only ever get acne, maybe one dot at a time, twice a year or so but my skin can be dry and flaky. Has anyone know of anything that would work and not burn off?
