Hello. I am 23 years old. Can anyone advise me on whether it is better to use skin rejuvenating products at this age or at a later age so that the product will still have effects on the skin. Does it matter whether or not we start young?
I have been looking here for anti-aging help and all I find is 2 questions from older people. Gals in their 20's and 30's aren't really in need of anti-aging products. I would say 40 and above is the age where suggestions for anti-aging products. I would like to know if anyone with fine wrinkles and some sagging skin issues has any advise on the products they have tried. Not to be rude but could gals of age and these problems please reply. Thank you and I really don't mean to be disrepectful to the younger gals, just anti-aging seems like it should be for older people and all I see is 20-30's with concerns here. Thank you for any advise you could offer me! <3
Hi, I am looking for recommendations for a fragrance-free anti-aging moisturizer for my Mom. She is 71 and has never used a moisturizer because she had oily skin when she was younger and thought a moisturizer would make it worse! I am a loyal Elemis Marine Cream fan but I think the light fragrance would be too much for her. She has super sensitive skin so any moisturizer would have to be absolutely 100% without any scent or irritants. If I can get her to use one product, I will be thrilled. Any suggestions please?
I am 46 and need a serum to help fight the signs of aging-- but I have celiac disease, so anything with oats, barley, rye or wheat (and derivatives) is out. Plus I have sensitive combination skin. There is a serum I love, but it costs over 200$ an ounce (and Sephora does not carry the brand) and I suspect that I can find something cheaper that works as well.... Here are the ingredients of the pricey one that works: Water, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Cocamidopropyl Amine Oxide, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Hydroxypropyl Guar, Glycerin, PEG-7 Glyceryl Cocoate, Polysorbate 20, Potassium Sorbate, Sodium Hyaluronate, Superoxide Dismutase, Tocopheryl Acetate, Retinyl Palmitate, Carrot Root, Green Tea Extract, Grape Seed Extract, Comfrey Leaf Extract, Calendula Officinalis Flower Extract, Matricaria Extract, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Phytonadione, Riboflavin, Niacin, Folic Acid, Cyanocobalamin, Chamomile Flower Oil, Propylene Glycol, Butylene Glycol, Diazolidinyl Urea, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, Tetrasodium EDTA, Citric Acid Can you help me find something similar that will work and does not cost a fortune? Thanks!
Ok, I've sort of asked around but now that I know what I really need to ask...I'm asking....I just turned 30, my skin is dulling (lack of sleep with a newborn and law school!), aging (smile and laugh lines) and showing signs of sun damage (from my teenage years competing in rodeos every weekend with no sunblock). I've always used a moisturizer with SPF but no real skincare regimen. I've been eyeballing the Philosophy Care Package ...it has most of what I would like to incorporate in a regimen....but I'm not sure if there is something better to address my concerns. I'm not sure any of it would help with correcting my sun damaged cheeks and nose and I'm almost certain I'd need to purchase some sort of night cream with retinol in it. I'm on a $150 or less budget. Kits seem cost effective. Could any one suggest a regimen with specific products?? I have totally confused myself with what I need....AHA, BHA, glycol, retinol.....oy!
I went into the sephora store today and I was looking for a good brand for nightly facial regime (already have a cleanser, just a moisturizer or night cream and a serum or eye cream that work nicely together) hopefully something brightening but doesn't have to be, i have mostly normal skin, with a dime sized dry patch by my chin. Also im in my teens and am already developing slight lines and anti aging would be great ( or preventative) and also a moisturizer with spf that can go under my bare minerals without making the color different (primer does this to me) Any response helps! thanks!!
Im turning 25 soon, and ive always heard that 25+ is when you should start preventing wrinkles and everything else thats comes with it , im looking for preferably a serum as treatment. I do have very sensitive skin , gets red easily , and the odd break out once in a . :-) thanks in advance,
I'm 26 and looking for a good under eye cream. I've had dark circles since I was a teenager (thanks for the great genes, mom!) but have been able to relieve that slightly with vitamin e oil and the occassional argan oil. I'm just starting to notice some fine lines under my eyes starting from the inner corners and moving outward, probably minor to most people, but I don't like them and would like to do anything I can to reverse them and possibly prevent them. I'm looking into getting into anti-aging ahead of the curve. Can anyone suggest a good under eye cream for sensitive skin like mine, and perhaps a good overall anti-aging cream?
I'm 23 going on 24 and am so freaked out about wrinkles and looking old. I have never paid much attention to any anti-aging product or even on preserving my skin, because I have always been focused on my acne. I just started getting my acne under control, after years of struggling, so my skin took a beating with all those chemicals. My acne left me with a lot of scars and spots/ discoloration, and now I want to focus on keeping young. So let me ask you what is your anti-aging regimen? Mine consist of eye cream and make up with SPF. I know its a little, but I don't know what else to do--what would be another great anti-aging step?
I'm 21 years old and my dark circles have been pretty bad my whole life. Without makeup, I've got total panda eyes. Now that I'm getting a bit older, the veins on my eyelids are very apparent and under my eyes, my pores are really defined and I often notice little broken blood vessels here and there. Is there a product out there that might fix these issues in my skin?
I've been obsessed with searching for eye creams for a while now ever since i noticed i have fine lines under my eyes. (well one under each eye) I got the philosophy sample because i was really interested in it and been using it for two weeks now and honestly, i really havent been seeing any improvement. I've seen only VERY LITTLE improvement on one fine line and that is the one that isn't as worse as my left eye one. I still have more that will probably last me another two weeks though. Have you tried the philosophy one? Or do you have another holy grail one you'd recommend?
Help, please! I just turned 50 and am searching for a new skincare line for oily/combination skin (infrequent breakouts on chin only), everything from a cleanser to moisturizer, eye cream, etc. Any suggestions would help! Thank you!
It's April which means the Sun Safety Kit should be coming out soon. I'm assuming we'll be seeing a lot of BB creams & maybe some more after sun care, or something for hair. What items would you like to see in this year's kit & what are your top 5 items from previous kits? Wishful Thinking: 1. PTR Retinol Fusion AM SPF 30 2. Dior Addict Lip Glow SPF 10 3. Perricone No Foundation Foundation SPF 30 4. Dr. Dennis Gross A/B Glow pads 5. PTR Oily Problem Skin Instant Mineral Powder SPF 30 & I couldn't stop at just 5... 6. Murad Essential-C Sun Balm Broad Spectrum SPF 35 7. Alterna Bamboo Color Care UV+ Fade-Proof Fluide 8. Bumble & Bumble Color Minded UV Protective Styling Balm Previous Favorites: 1. Ole Henriksen Herbal Day Cream SPF 15 (from the pink plastic bag, 3 years ago?) 2. Jack Black Lemon Lip Balm (from the pink plastic bag, 3 years ago?) 3. DDF lip gloss (from the yellow net bag, 6 years ago?) I repurchased it every summer. 4. PTR Max Sheer All Day Moisture Defense Lotion SPF 30 (from the "little miss SPF" tote 2 years ago) 5. The yellow net bag from 6 years ago. Still use it during the summer. It keeps my essentials in my beach bag/purse.
I'm only 24 and I have somehow acquired more wrinkles on my body than my face. My morning chest wrinkles have become permanent & I've had lines across my stomach for years. I've never had any significant weight gain/loss, but these lines across my stomach are ridiculously deep. I don't want to get anything that's meant for sensitive face wrinkles, because this is very different. Any product suggestions/ ideas?
I've struggled with sleep my whole life...Yes I take prescribed medication for it. and on top of that an as needed medication in case the daily medication doesn't work. however I prefer the natural route like long hot showers & decaf teas...stuff like that. lately I've been hooked on Harney & Sons African Autumn Herbal Tea which is a red tea blend that is drool worthy. I am wondering what others do for natural sleep remedies or does anyone else have any favorite tea suggestions because this sleep struggle is so bad for the skin especially face I have a gaunt look about me tonight, though I also have a cold which doesn't help. I have dark circles under my eyes already the only product I've used so far is Benefit's boing but I still can see the dark circles through a coat of it under my eyes. does anyone have any suggestions for another dark circle concealer as well, that might do the job better. I have to at least appear awake for work on the weekdays.
Hi Sephora and all! I was wondering - what product(s) at Sephora have the best ratings and results for lightening age spots? I'm in my mid thirties and have age spots on my face that I've been trying to lighten now. I know that it's super important to wear sunscreen and limit time in the sun. But what else, in addition to that, can I do or what products should I try to lighten age spots? Thank you.
Does anyone know if this moisturizer helps improve/prevent fine lines/aging? A Sephora sales rep recommended I try this after I explained what I was looking for & that Josie Maran's Argan Oil totally dried out & irritated my skin. I found out however that it's for people in their 20's and I'm in my 30's. I was looking for a moisturizer with SPF that was really moisturizing but light, would not cause acne & would help with fine lines/aging. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Hello ladies, I am turning 25 soon and I want to try new skincare products, more has a anti-aging property in it. I have prone to acne, combo to oily, sensitive skin. Besides preventing wrinkels, my other main concerns are dark spots discolorations, enlargepores, and no greasy feeling on the skin or cause acne. After weeks of search I have sorted down SK-II and Perricone MD skincare line. But I can't decide which brand the products to buy and try. Can you ladies give me some advise if you have used them or know anything about them? Thanks so much!
I recently got a sample of the kate somerville retasphere. i havent built up to daily use yet, but i'm wondering can you also on the days in between using an exfoliation? i have the exfoliatkate but not sure if that will to much on my skin w/ the use of the retasphere night cream. also any suggestions on a day cream for combination skin as well as a good face wash. i've tried the boscia black line but wasnt to impressed with it. thanks!
I was interested in the Peter Thomas Roth Turbo Unwrinkle serum but didn't want to give half of my leg for the bottle if it does nothing at all. Has anyone tried it and what results if any did you receive. I got a sample from my local Sephora in Texarkana but there was hardly a drop in there for only one use as they aren't that generous with their samples. I love the Shreveport Sephora as they give you enough of a sample to actually try before you buy.
Hi everyone. I'm looking for advice on beginning a retinol regimen for my skin. I'm 28 years old, very fair complected, and I'm starting to see some noticeable lines under my eyes and around my mouth (laugh lines). I'm interested in using retinol, and I've tried the OTC ones before (mainly ROC), and they have torn my skin up. I even tried the sensitive one that is time released, and it irritates my skin terribly. I've tried taking it slow, I've made sure to use sunscreens, etc. The irritation seems to last for weeks after using it sparingly. Would it be better to get a higher quality retinol? What would you suggest? Or should I just avoid it altogether? Thanks for the advice! Jenna
I am 41 and recently the crepiness around my eyes has seemed to compound over night, especially around the inner corners. It looks really bad. I would love some suggestions for products that really work at targeting this problem. Thank you.
