First Aid Beauty vs Philosophy
Lately my face has been feeling more on the greasy side. I have combination, oily t-zone skin with active breakouts and discoloration. I am interested in trying First Aid Beauty or Philosophy but unsure which line would be better for me. I would like a new full regimen please (cleanser to sun protection, including mask, etc)

Shaky Hands
I have MS (Multiple Sclerosis) & although no one would know by looking at me, my hands tend to shake.  When trying to do something precise, like handwriting, my hands shake even more. I need to replace my make-up brushes & would love any recommendations. Are there any brushes that anyone has felt are quality, easier to grasp & use? Thank-you for any help. 💋

60+ skin dryness and wrinkles
I am 60+ and my skin has become extremely dry especially around my eyes and mouth area. I now have wrinkles that I did not have 6 months ago. I'm trying many products, but so far nothing has worked that I am able to notice. I know that I'm looking for a miracle in a jar, but with all these products, there should be something that works.

Do we have American beauty rituals?
A recent thread on global (country specific but not US) got me thinking…do we have American beauty rituals?  Are our rituals more specific to family traditions passed down?  Is it perhaps the communal nature of our beauty rituals that's different (perhaps not…think of group baths or saunas elsewhere).   Thoughts anyone?  Thanks!
