I'm looking for advice on preventing wrinkles, while not causing more acne. I have oily/combination skin and get acne frequently (3-5 pimples per week), but am starting to develop slight wrinkles on my forehead (I know, there are worse things happening in the world!). I would like to begin treating/preventing wrinkles before they advance, but assume most aging products are for women with dry, mature skin. Can anyone recommend products/regimens for wrinkle prevention on acne-prone skin? Thank you in advance
As a woman in her late 30's, I have been using Clinique's Repairwear Laser Focus for lines on my forehead for the last few years. I think it's been helping - at least my lines haven't gotten worse. Now that Clinique has introduced the new Smart Custom Repair Serum, I wonder if I should make the switch. I plan to stop by the Clinique counter at Macy's this week, but wanted to see if anyone had some advice before I make the switch.
PLEASE RECOMMEND A SKIN CARE REGIME FOR A 61 YEAR OLD FEMALE. MY FACE LACKS BRIGHTNESS AND EVENESS. MY EYES HAVE EXTREMLY DARK CIRCLES UNDERNEATH. MY ENTIRE FACE LOOKS SICKLY PALE AND EXTREMELY WHITE. EVEN WHEN WEARING MAKE UP I STILL LOOK THIS WAY. I HAVE HAD PICTURES TAKEN AND I LOOK LIKE SOMEONE FROM BANGLADESH. I WANT TO INVEST IN MAKE UP ALSO, BUT RIGHT NOW, I NEED TO FOCUS ON SKINCARE. THANKYOU
I AM 61 AND NEED HELP FOR FACE AND EYES. MY FACE LACKS RADIANCE AND MY EYES LOOK SUNKEN IN WITH NO RADIANCE, JUST DEEP DARK CIRCLES UNDERNEATH. NATURALLY AT MY AGE I AM CONCERNED WITH LINES AND WRINKLES. I HAVE VERY THIN LIPS WITH A LOT OF LINES AND WRINKLES ABOVE THE UPPER LIP. ANYTIME I HAVE A PICTURE TAKEN, WITH COMPLETE MAKE UP ON, MY FACE AND EYES LOOK EXTREMELY WHITE AND PALE. I AM DESPERATE TO FIND SKIN CARE AGING PRODUCTS IN ADDITION TO MAKE UP THAT WILL HELP. THANK YOU.
I have oily, sensitive, Acne prone skin. I have been using a DMAE 30% Glycolic Acid cream from another website, since I was 19. I'm 25 now and I still use it. My skin has gotten used to it I think so I would like to add the Dr Dennis Gross Ferulic Acid + Retinol Brightening solution to my night time routine. I want to put the Retinol Brightening solution on first, then the Glycolic Acid DMAE cream. My only concern is that, it will counteract each other, or potentially harm my skin. Is it ok to use Glycolic Acid with Retinol and Ferulic Acid? I only plan to use the two for my night routine. I want to get rid of the sun damage to my skin, the blackheads, some acne scars, and I want good anti-aging benefits. I spent a lot of my life in the sun without SPF and it is catching up to me. I want to make sure I stay looking young in the future.
A little bit about my skin: I am 24 and have combination/dry skin I am currently using Philosophy Time in a Bottle as my serum and am really liking it, however I am running out of it and looking to switch it up for a bit. I just don't want my skin to get too used to Time in a Bottle since I am still young and will probably really "need" it in the future lol. I do want a serum with anti-aging benefits and hydration is always a plus. Thanks for taking the time to read this! Looking forward to reading all the suggestions
I am suffering from wrinkles and rough skin problems. My friends suggested me to use equinox skin care cream by sheridan labs. I have read some scams and some complaints but there are some positive reviews also. Now I am confused, is there anyone who suggests me about it?? Scam or not?
i have a great night moisturizer from peter ? and am looking for something during the day (in morning before makeup), the studies on this look incredible , all high 90s on improvement - i have had luck with his peters facial wash and also night cream, so i thought this might be good to try, but its a hefty investment and i wanna be sure i understand what it is, what it does, and if it will help me first 2 questions 1) does this have any harsh chemicals i need to be worried about? would it leave any redness or effects? 2) do i need to put on another moisturizer after or does this product "regenerate" and also moisturize?? i am 34, main goal is to prevent wrinkles, nothing so bad yet. also my face on cheeks can be a bit blotchy with redness but its mild-moderate and doesnt bother me too much
I am 24 years old and beginning to think a lot more about preventing the signs of aging on my face. I essentially have two questions: What moisturizers do you recommend and in what order should I apply it with my other products? I am interested in an anti-aging serum that is thin enough to use under makeup but won't make me oily. I use a regular moisturizer and cc cream. If I use a moisturizing serum, is it necessary to use another moisturizer or will this replace it? I do usually use an anti aging lotion at night (that's too thick and oily looking for day) and a moisture mask a few days a week. During the day, I use a thin sunscreen (that I'm thinking of ditching because of the texture), a tiny bit of moisturizer, a primer, cc cream, and then a tad of powder if I am going out on a date or something. Does this sound like the right order?
Dear BT'ers, When I found this forum I was feeling SO low about the sun-caused pigmentation splattering across my face, especially since I had tried every premium and drug store brands best product for fading such ugly marks. Thanks to your excellent suggestions, I no longer need even medium coverage foundation, so I'm mainly using a BB Glow cream. The sun spots and patches are now barely visible. Eight weeks ago I would never have imagined this possible. I truly cannot thank you all enough!
I am 21 years old, and I have fine wrinkles under my eyes. I really want to buy an eye cream that will prevent more wrinkles from forming, and diminish the ones I already have. I have been using the Korres Quercetin & Oak Anti-ageing Anti-wrinkle Eye Cream for two years, but I don't really see a difference. I really wanted to try the Origins plantscription, but it burned when I applied it on my eyes. Do you know any good eye creams that you can recommend to me?
I need suggestion good suggestion for face oil that can be used for massage. An oil that helps get rid of wrinkle or is anti-aging with whitening benefits?? Just any oil is fine and I know how to massage so don't trouble yourself with that Thank you!
I am 30yrs old, normal skin, neurtal on make up (usually mascara and lip gloss only). I am currently using skincare products from Fresh: their lotus moisturizer, black tea toner, soy face cleanser,and peony brightening treatment. I have been using this line for awhile now and although my skin is healthy, i have started to notice it is not as bright/lumunous and I am starting to see some age spots (even though I do not go in the sun). I was thinking of trying the Ole Henriksen line, maybe 3 Little Wonders? and was wondering what products other VIBs would recommend to get the glow back in my skin. Thanks!
I have been told its time to start using a night time cream. I am 24 and have slightly oily skin and have never had much acne. As of now I just wash my face and remove my make up before bed. Any suggestions? Thanks!
I have combination skin (oliy but cannot tolerate mattifying products because skin will be covered in dry patches). i have a wrinkle in the middle of my forehead that has gotten worse over time. I need something to help this and to prevent further expression lines. Any suggestions?
Just turned 25 wondering when I should start using anti aging creams lol I do have wrinkles on my forehead I tend to scrunch my forehead a lot when I talk anyhow I'm thinking about ordering OLE HENRIKSEN 3 Little Wonders Mini. But I hear using anti aging products too early isn't good either what are your thoughts???
So I'm 24, almost 25. Pale, prone to redness and acne (controlled with antibiotics though) and lots of pigmentation/acne scars. Also have what seems to be a permanent forehead wrinkle from sleeping on my stomach with my face scrunched up. I'm in the process of finishing up samples of various serums and an old prescription of Retin-A. But here shortly I will need to order something new. I used a bottle of Clinique's Even Better serum but it didn't really fade anything. My concerns are fading dark marks, and addressing the beginning of wrinkles/fine lines. So I'm not sure whether I should go for a retinol serum, or a hydroquinone serum to fade the acne scars. Is there a serum that will address both? I would love some recommendations, please try to keep them to $90 or less though.
Hi, I'm 26 years old and have normal/combination skin with occasional breakouts. Although I'm not at the point of having wrinkles or fine lines, I've always read that you should start using anti-wrinkle and/or anti-aging products in your 20s before any of those issues come up. So I'm thinking of starting to use something, but I honestly have no idea what I'm doing and I need some help. I don't know what kind of ingredients to look for, stay away from, etc. I'm really not looking to get an entire new skincare routine. I already have one that my dermatologist has recommended and has been working for me for years. I'm more interested in a single product that I can use along with my normal cleanser and moisturizer to help stave off any signs of aging. What are your thoughts? Any product recommendations? I'd love to hear them!
Hi everyone: Here's why I desperately need advice, in bulleted form for those of you that like to "scan" I've always been a <gasp!> Cetaphil (with Clarisonic) followed by Oil of Olay and sunscreen kind of girl with my skin Good genes have allowed it, but 40 is looming in a matter of days and I'm out of denial about the crow's feet. I have no idea what I'm looking for--would love your advice and recommendations! Want to purchase at Sunday's Rouge event My skin: I'm very fair/"Irish" skinned, but not particularly sensitive. Still, good sunscreen in the morning is important Combination: T-Zone super oily/borderline greasy by noon despite products to mattify, and the rest is normal but dry in winter I do get occasional breakouts but it's not the main concern I do have dark circles, but full coverage concealer keeps them in check so a perk to address, but not top of the list Looking for products to address fine lines and "preserve" my skin. Improved texture a plus. Need products for my neck too--surprisingly it is aging faster than my face Need a SIMPLE regimen---everything needed but nothing more to start. I'm used to a simple 2 step wash and slather so this is a big step! Budget isn't a major issue other than the first purchase all at once. (Rouge member = embarrassing spending on make up) Let me know if I've missed any required details, and I'm so looking forward to your shared knowledge and loved products! Thanks, Karen
