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!
I am in my upper 30s. I have alot of crows feet which extend down to my upper cheek when I smile. I am going to the nearest Sephora next weekend and would like to know what I should get to treat & conceal. I have dry skin, can someone give me some advice on the Laura Mercier Smooth Finish Flawless Fluide? Thanks.
Hi everyone, I would like to start using a tightening or lifting cream or serum on my face and neck. My question is, what is the order of application? Do I do my regular skincare routine first and apply the tightening product last? Or, should the tightening product be applied first, with the other products over it? Another option might be that the tightening product takes the place of the similar product I am using now (for example, a tightening cream would take the place of my usual moisturizing cream). Thank you for any advice!
I'm the type of person if I have a terrible experience with a type of product, I'll avoid anything similar even years, new generation formula's. Please explain today's lift/tighten/firm skincare products. Anyone remember "Sudden Change?" Yes, it's still sold! The original formulations no matter the brand damaged skin elasticity in the past. Made skin look aged/dehydrated/worse.
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?

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 am 28 and starting to see fine lines and wrinkles around my eyes, and my skin seems to have lost that "youthful glow" I had in my early 20s. I am very fair and avoid the sun as best as possible and always have an SPF of 30. Any suggestions on routine skin are andanti aging products? With so much out there I don't know where to start!
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 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
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!
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?
Hi i have normal to dry skin , some large pores on nose area, and do have some fines line as well the 11 lines and deep lines around mouth area, also have some neck lines. can someone suggest a good line for this age?
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.
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
I'm in the market for a toner and I'm interested in a brightening toner. I've looked at a few and the NARS toner looks promising. Has anyone used it and can comment on it? If you haven't used NARS, is there another brightening toner that you use and like? I know there are a few out there and I'm open to suggestions. Basically looking for something for combination skin, most of my concerns are anti-aging - dullness, firmness, not too many wrinkles but trying to keep them in check. I use Philosophy Miracle Worker skin care and love it but they don't have a toner. So just looking for that step after cleansing and before moisturizing to complete the routine! Thanks!
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!
