Red, irritated skin
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?

You will dry out the skin if you use soap and charcoal masks. Use a low pH gel cleanser like the Fresh Soy Cleanser. As far as moisturizers try Dr. Jart's Ceramidin l... see post
Reducing Chlorine Burns and Redness
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!

Products and eyeshadow for eczema around the eye
Hello! I have a friend who has eczema around her eyes and she can't wear any eye shadows because of it. I don't know all the brands of eyeshadow she has tried, but the only brand from Sephora (high[er]-end) is one of the Urban Decay Naked palettes. Most of the time it immediately burns and causes redness/rash. With the Urban Decay palette it took about five hours. Do any of you have recommendations for good eye creams to try and also some eyeshadow products that wouldn't cause such a reaction?? Thanks in advance for any suggestions you may have!

Please help :(
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 !

Rash from Egg Cream hydration mask. Help!
   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.

Spider Vein Treatment/Prevention/Experiences?
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!!

Face products for very sensitive and dry skin
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

Dermatitis, Skin Reactions to Products, Skin Allergies - Post concerns, problems, potential solutions here
I thought I'd start a thread for people to post issues they're having with their skin that relate to dermatitis, reactions to certain products, skin allergies, and similar issues. I think having a central thread may help for sharing ideas and learning from each other.   I have super sensitive skin myself but have been on BT long enough to see that practically everyone has had a skin reaction to some product or another and sometimes sharing with others really helps narrow down the cause and solution. This thread isn't meant to be a place to post about the more common skin issues such as minor acne, wrinkles, etc. that we all experience, but rather a place to post about the more unusual ones relating to specific products/ingredients or longer term ones that are not related to age or hormones such as eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, dermatitis, and just the puzzling things that our skin does from time to time.   I'm not an skincare expert by any means and unless someone asserts that he or she is one, this thread is more of a place to share ideas and experiences rather than a place to seek definitive answers or treatment.    Other helpful threads: Bite Beauty allergic reactions: http://community.sephora.com/t5/Lips/Bite-Beauty-A llergic-Reactions/td-p/2413760

Allergy reaction to most Skincare and Makeup
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)

SK-II daily use opinions and looking for a great under eye moisturizer that doesn't make your concealer look cakey?????Please advise. Thanks
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.

Anyone Try The 24k Donna Bella Products That Were On Hautelook?
I bought three different 24k Donna Bella products from Hautelook recently because I thought it was a much less expensive way to try the brand.       I tried one of the products the other night - the 24k Deep Facial Peeling.  It left an awful gum residue on my face that actually balled up and got stuck on every facial hair on my lower jaw/chin area.  I had to use alcohol to remove it.  I am wondering if Hautelook sold expired or bad product?  It is also a non-returnable final-sale item, and Hautelook is refusing to take it back.      Has anyone else tried this product?  If so, does it really do this, or did I get a bad product? I am now afraid to try the other products I bought because I have to wonder about their freshness/authenticity. Thanks!

I have a scrub I use 3 times a week to exfoliate, but am lacking a daily face wash. 21 and have combination skin.
