Q. I've had Oily skin my whole life. Now I'm starting to have combo of oily and dry - HELP!!
I'm 21 years old and have had oily skin - no doubt in the world that my face is an oil slick. Within the last year I have noticed my skin starting to have dry areas as well as oil patches. I have no idea if this is how my skin has developed or I'm using products that are just making me dry. I have only had a handful on instances in which a product managed to make me dry.   Any suggestions on what skin care/ makeup i can use? I'm almost hesitant to completely change into combo products because I'm worried that this is just a weird time for me

Recommend a serum for daytime wear
I'm looking for a lightweight serum to layer on underneath my tinted moisturizer, something that will add just a touch more hydration and make the tinted moisturizer go on smoothly. Preferably oil free, so the moisturizer doesn't slide off. Any suggestions?

Good moisturizers?
Hi my name is Sarah and I'm 16 years old. I'm searching for a good moisturizer. I have normal skin I would say and don't have a lot of breakouts. I currently own the clinique dramatically different moisturizer lotion but it's almost empty and I want to try something new. I hope someone can help me? And I was also wondering if I could use the drunk elephant framboos glycolic night serum, or am I too young for that product?

Skin problems? also too dry/cakey and too oily makeup?
I'm having a lot of issues lately with my skin. I have combination skin where my forehead, sometides around my nose and sometides my chin get really oily and everywhere else is dry/normal. When I put BB/CC cream or any foundation or concealer on my skin is so dry at first and it looks terrible and CARE and then after about an hour or two its just so oily, there's no in between. I've tried so many products and I don't know what I"m doing wrong. I wash my face properly, exfoliate 1-2 tides a week, tone, put eye cream on, use the Clinique dramatically different lotion whats for combination/dry skin... I pride my face with prider oil, use a setting spray and apply everything in correct order with a beauty blender. My concealer and other products are expensive, not the cheap stuff and it still looks terrible. I'm so frustrated with this I feel like i just shouldn't wear makeup at all since it looks either way too dry/CARE or way too oily. is there anything i'm doing wrong or not doing at all?

Help with both face and eye moisturizers!! IT cosmetics vs Fresh vs Dr. Jart+
Hi there,   I am on the hunt for a new face moisturizer and eye cream. I have pretty normal skin. Sometimes I have clogged pores, but I wouldn't say I am necessarily acne prone. I've been using a face wash with a low dose of benzoyl peroxide, and it seems to be doing the trick. I want both the eye cream and face moisturizer to work for day and night. I also don't want the eye cream to cause milia or the face moisturizer to sit too heavy on the skin. I am only 21, but I still want products with anti aging benefits as preventative measure. Have you used any of these products/which would you recommend the most?    1. IT Cosmetics - Confidence in a cream  2. IT Cosmetics - Bye Bye Under Eye Eye Cream 3. Fresh - Lotus Youth Preserve face cream  4. Fresh  - Lotus Youth Preserve eye cream 5. Dr. Jart+ - Ceramidin Cream or Gel-Cream     Any advice would be greatly appreciated, as I plan on buying products this weekend!

Help! Combination Skin
Hello! I have combination skin - oily t-zone and dry cheeks - and I breakout pretty much all the time on my nose, above my lips and on my chin. I also have loads of tiny bumps under my skin in these areas which makes finding a good foundation hard. I find it hard to find skincare and makeup that works for me, and I don't want to keep spending money on products that aren't working for me.   Currently, I use Philosophy's Purity cleanser (which seems to be working well), Alpha-H's liquid gold, Mario Badescu's toner mist and a moisturiser from the Body Shop. Makeup wise, i'm missing a primer from my routine, but I use Nars Sheer Glow as a base, which sometimes breaks up around my oily areas, especially in the summer.    I'm looking for some suggestions for: - a face mask - a primer - anything else that you would recommend for my skin type.   Thanks! xo

Desperate search for a new moisturizer
Hello! I am in desperate need of a new moisturizer. I used to use the bare minerals moisturizer, but since they have changed their formula, my skin has felt more oily than usual (especially my forehead). I have found that gel-based moisturizers don't work for my skin at all and I have recently been using the moisturizing bomb from belif, but am not facing the same issue. Are there any moisturizers you guys would recommend trying? My skin is pretty normal in general. As it gets colder it get feel a little dry around my cheeks and it usually only feels oily if I've been lazy and haven't washed my face in a couple of days.

Q. I need a skincare regimen
Hi all,   So I know this is super bad - but I have never really looked after my skin at all. Like, ever.   Until now, I've only ever really washed my face whenever I shower, and if I am removing eye make-up (I don't wear make-up often). My skin isn't terrible, I've never had issues with acne, but it's not great either. I look tired a lot of the time, parts of it are very dry, and I'm at the point where I'd like to start taking care of it while I'm young and it's easier to do so.   Thing is, I don't even really know where to begin. All my mother ever taught me was to use a bar of soap to wash my face everyday. I did this in the past, and all it really did was dry out my skin, which was why I stopped. I've also tried various stuff from the aisles in Shoppers Drug Mart, but those products always seemed to cause problems for me. I also only ever used cleansers, and didn't know until recently that you were supposed to moisturize too(?). Anyways, if anyone can give me a really good idea about what products to try and what sort of regimen to use I'd super appreciate it!!   (Oh and I think I have combination skin - parts of my face are very dry, other parts kind of oily, so I guess that would be the type of skin products I'd be looking for)

I was using Caudalie Vinosource S.O.S Thirst Quenching Serum last year and my 16 yr old daughter fell in love with it because it's so lightweight on her face.  She hates the feeling of any moisturizers on her face or skin.  But unfortunately the Vinosource is out of her budget.  Do any of you know of a product that is similar in that it's lightweight and doesn't feel like your skin is coated with moisturizer?  thank you!   BTW I would say she has normal skin with a few occasional breakouts.

De, Algenist, or Sunday Riley
Hi. I'm in need of a new skincare routine. I've noticed my skin texture has changed. Maybe some enlarged pores, uneven texture, and dry patches on cheeks and chin. I'm usually combination skin. I do have hormonal breakouts and am in my 40's. I also want to prevent fine lines. I was wondering after reading reviews for all, which brand might be the best? Drunk Elephant, Alienist, or Sunday Riley? I was leaning more towards DE. Any feedback or any other suggestions would be great. I wash my face now with Cerave. I haven't found anything else to clean the makeup off my face. I was using Philosophy moisturizer, but after 2 jars realized it was not performing miracles. My derm has me using PCA strength serum at night, but I'm not really sure that's working either. Thanks!!!!

I need some advice on a new skin care regimen
I am 26, and am usually pretty awful about taking care of my skin. I never really had an acne issues as a teenager but recently have had really troubled skin. I get oily in my t-zones and am dry elsewhere. I suffer from milia, not around my eyes but most often on my cheeks. Also heavy black heads on my nose and chin, with some in my cheek area. I do own a clarisonic pro which I use when I remember. I live in Florida so I get decent sun exposure. My skin isn't overly sensitive but can be with really abrasive products. Hoping for some good suggestions for a full skin care regimen... i.e. cleanser, toner, serum, eye cream, weekly mask, etc. Anything to help and start preventative work as I get older!

Cleanser Needs an Update! HELP!
Here's the lowdown: I don't have TONS of breakouts at a time, but it seems as though they are consistent no matter the common culprits--hormone fluctuations, dietary inclusions/exclusions, etc. I have begun to notice it flares up when I am under intense stress, though. I need to find a cleanser that will help rebalance skin that's under a lot of stress often. Also, I sweat for a living basically, so I typically do not wear anything on my face during the day time other than a bit of concealer if needed, eyeliner, and mascara. Otherwise, moisturizers and serums/treatments tend to just get worn off quickly.   Here's what I use currently: Morning- First Aid Beauty Deep Cleanser with Red Clay / Evening- DermaDoctor Ain't Misbehavin' AHA/BHA Cleanser with my Clarisonic    I've tried a number of cleansers on the market, and most of them for the recommended 6-week or longer period to see a difference in use, but none have impressed me (other than DermaDoctor Ain't Misbehavin') enough to buy a second bottle.    Any recommendations on cleansers you've tried and noticed a significant difference in your problematic skin?    THANKS Y'ALL!!
