I am in my early 30s and am starting to notice that my eyelids are beginning to droop a bit. The skin isn't as tight as it used to be and my makeup doesn't come out as well as it used to (the shadow in the crease). I used the search bar, and the answers were from 2010-2012, nothing too recent (there may be new products?). I know there are no miracle products, but can anyone suggest an eye cream/serum that will help to prevent future eyelid sagging? Thanks!
My dermatologist, who is normally very conservative, recommended Dermapen sessions. I'm usually a skeptic when it comes to these sorts of things so I thought I'd see if any of you had tried it. Thank you!
I've been using the Peter Thomas Roth Laser-Free Resurfacer Serum. I like it but I'm always on the lookout for something better! I used the very last pump of it this morning so I'm looking to either re-purchase this weekend or buy something new and would love some suggestions. For moisturizer I use the corresponding Laser-Free Gel Moisturizer but I don't find you HAVE to pair them together. I'd like to keep it under $75 My skin is normal-to-dry(ish) Anything that targets fine lines would be great Considering First Aid Beauty's Dual Repair Power Serum. Anyone try that? Thanks! http://www.sephora.com/laser-free-resurfacer-P2780 21?skuId=1305937 http://www.sephora.com/dual-repair-power-serum-P37 7266?skuId=1487107
To those who wish a product to completely change their skin type...please read! As an esthetician there are things I have learned that some people are unaware of. A skin type is what you are born with, only if there is a complete hormonal change will it become something different. It has everything to do with oil production. It's labeled as dry, dry/combo, oily/combo, oily, and sensitive. Sensitive has only come up as a skin type very recently. The other issues with skin has to due with conditions. There are many different conditions and that is what, as an esthetician we try to treat in facials. Dehydration is very different from dry skin. Dry skin lacks oil which is a skin type, dehydrated skin lacks water balance. You can be the most oily skin type in the world but overtreat your skin and become dehydrated by not giving your skin an oil free, water based moisturizer or drink enough water. And another HUGE part of skin care is all about what goes on in the insides of our bodies. A breakout on a certain part of your face can tell me what's going on, on the inside. Please feel free to ask me anything. I will try my best to keep up.
I have a problem with dark, sagging under-eyes. It's most likely genetic as my mother and her mother both have the same problem. I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions for products I could try to help fix this problem. I'm looking for something reasonably priced, with firming and brightening properties.
HI all! I searched and couldn't find this particular thread, and I need some advice. SInce I got so many recommendations from several of you, as well as reading lots of positive reviews, I got some PTR Retinol Fusion PM. I have high hopes, but I am having problems getting it applied before it evaporates into thin air! It is very light and watery, and it just seems to vanish in my palms or on my fingertips before I can get it onto my face! I tried dripping one drop at a time per face area (forehead, each cheek, chin) and quickly smoothing it around with my other hand...it seems to work OK but feels awkward. Tonight I mixed 4 drops of it into my Clinique Repairwear serum and applied them together. it seemed to work OK... So, how do you who use this get it applied to your whole face in the 4 seconds it takes before it completely disappears?? I have never had a problem just getting something ONTO my skin before!
I've bee using philosophy pads with no irritation but recently read that there is not much actual retinol in it...I have the .5% skinceuticals samples to try and I am almost out of the pads so I thought it may be a good time to try a new kind of retinol...I have sensitive skin and use the fresh soy cleanser, the perricone vit c, cold plasma at night, and photo plasma during the day along with the face finishing moisturizer and am happy with those thus far...I also use a Peter Roth sulfur mask for breakouts I get around my mouth.or the dermadoctor ain't misbehavin'. I was looking at the philosophy help me, kate Somerville retasphere, and the Peter Roth retinol pm in particular but don't want to risk using anything too strong coming from the pads only with their low retinol content. I'm open to any brands just want any suggestions from those out there my age who need to start stepping up their routine
my mom is 48 years old but because of the amount of wrinkles on her face she looks too older than her age. she is looking for anti wrinkle cream which can guarantee remove the wrinkles. Any suggestion?
I used to have a few cute freckles on my face, now I have ugly patches of dark pigmentation all over it. I have lived in Dubai and India for the past ten years BUT I wear factor 100 (Bioderma) everyday, and NEVER sunbathe. I try to be outside as little as possible. I have tried Extreme C from Dermalogica, La Prairie White Caviar Sun Spot Correcter Serum, Cream, and Eye Cream, Estee Lauder Re Nutriv Illuminating serum for dark spots, Lancome Dream Tone, Dior (the entire Dior Snow collection) and every product for pigmentation from all the French brands, including Bioderma, Avena, Caudalie etc. I have in the process made the skin around the retched sun spots paler, so they stand out even more! I would be exceedingly grateful for any advice anyone can offer me
I've been looking for a skin care line to combat fine lines/wrinkles, some dark under eye circles and premenopausal skin (dullness). This skin care line was suggested by a Sephora rep after I saw no changes using the Resurgence kit by Murad. Would love to her any feedback
So, I bought the Oleg Henricksen Power Peel two pack trial set. My skin is pretty good for my age - 49 - combination, not very dry or oily. I'm working on preventing aging, combating dullness,, etc. So, my question is what do I do/use immediately after a peel -- regular serum/moisturizer routine? Nothing? And, how often should I use them? Any other tips, advice?
Hello, I am 40 years old and I have kept my skin treatment care intact. However I have concerns about firmness and tightness and lifting. I have used up all my clarin's skin serum products and I am looking at purchasing origins skin care products. Do you think I can still obtain the same results with a less expensive product? I want my skin glowing when I walk in to work or were ever I am in the community!
Hi, Im 31 and staring to notice a few changes to my skin. What beauty regime can you suggest for anti aging starting now? For dark under eye circles, wrinkles on forehead and around eyes, and skin blotchiness.
With summer sun already reaching the triple digits in some states I just wanted to take a moment to remind everyone the sunscreen basics on SPF and choosing a proper sunscreen to meet your needs! We use sunscreen to block ultraviolet light from damaging the skin. There are two categories of UV light -- UVA and UVB -- that we consider in terms of sunscreen. UVB causes sunburn, and UVA has more long-term damaging effects on the skin, like premature aging. SPF, or Sun Protection Factor. To determine a sunscreen's SPF, testers round up 20 sun-sensitive people and measure the amount of UV rays it takes them to burn without sunscreen. Then they redo the test with sunscreen. The "with sunscreen" number is divided by the "without sunscreen" number, and the result is rounded down to the nearest five. This is the SPF. SPF numbers start at 2 and have just recently reached 70. To figure out how long you can stay in the sun with a given SPF, use this equation: Minutes to burn without sunscreen x SPF number = maximum sun exposure time For example, if you burn after 10 minutes of sun exposure, an SPF of 15 will allow you to be in the sun for up to 150 minutes without burning. But before you grab your calculator and head for the beach, you should know that this equation is not always accurate. People usually use far less sunscreen than the amount used in testing. In the real world, the average person only uses half the amount of sunscreen used in the laboratory, which could result in a sunburn in half the time. Be liberal with application. We now know that most of us apply only about half the required amount of sunscreen. Also, despite waterproof or sweatproof labels, all sunscreens decrease in effectiveness when exposed to water or sweat. If you don't apply the correct amount and then reapply after exposure to water, a 12-hour bake in the sun could give you a very serious sunburn and last but not least this is the most important part that we must remember: To be effective, sunscreen needs to be fully absorbed into the skin, so apply it 15 to 30 minutes before you even step into the sun.
Hi guys! I have a few questions, so I figured I'd come ask the experts! To start, I'll tell you a little about myself. I'm 21, come from dominican and german background, have very fair skin that tans very very easily, with normal skin type. Now onto my question! Lol! I've heard/read that using retinol from a young age helps prevent some wrinkles and helps keep your skin looking amazing. My typical nighttime skin routine is: wash with Philosophy Purity face wash, tone with Mario Badescu Cucumber Cleansing Lotion (toner), press Josie Maran argan oil light into my skin, use Mario Badescu hyaluronic eye cream, then moisturize with Korres Wild Rose + Vitamin C Advanced Brightening Sleeping Facial. I was interested in trying out the PTR Retinol Fusion PM. Any thoughts/comments/reviews? Also, since the PTR Retinol is an oil I was wondering where I would fit it into my routine? Sorry for all the questions, but thanks in advanced for all your help!!!
I'm in my early 40's and have to work in the sun a bit. I have lots of samples and many full-sized products from different lines, but I'm curious if any readers could recommend a morning routine for a mask before the cleansing and moisturizing routine for morning. I love my Clarisonic and have noticed good results with just about any cleanser I use, but I just wanted to start taking advantage of masks in general. So any advice about the variety, frequency, etc is most welcome!
