What are the top must do's in my skin care regimen? (36 years old with sun spots)
Currently I wash my face AM and PM. I use eye cream and day cream w/spf & night cream. I also use my clarisonic every other day. I feel like im missing something because my face looks so blah. Anything else that is a must to include in my daily facial regimen?

3 Weeks in China - What skin products are a must?
Hi all,   I'm going to China for three week in October and I know that the smog and air is going to do a number on my skin. Does anyone have any skin products that you know can combat smog? In my neck of the woods in Canada, we don't get too much smog so I've never needed smog-specific skin care.   Thanks in advance!

Acne and Blemish Treatments
Hello,   I have combo skin. Usually I suffer hormonal acne in the T-zone. I want to know people's opinions on these products:   Glamglow Supermud Clearing Treatment Kate Somerville EradiKate Acne Treatment Kate Somerville EradiKate Mask Foam-Activated Acne Treatment   Which one has worked the best?   I heard that the Glamglow masks dry out fast even when the container is half full. But I had a sample of the Glamglow Youthmud Tinglexfoliate Treatment and I noticed that my skin felt smoother and somehow different. Can't describe it.    The only product that I have used is PTR's complexion pads. Recently switched from gentle to max so I will see how that works.   Also read some reviews on here that the two Kate Somerville products work well together....   Thank you ladies!!!

Sunscreen
Hello ladies and gentlemen,   I have a question: I am looking at sunscreen for the face. I am 24 and I currently have Boscia  B.B. Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 27 PA++ and I rarely use it since I consider it more of a make-up item and I don't wear make up. I was wondering what is a good sunscreen, preferably not tinted but if there is one that has the same texture as the Boscia one and looks very natural and maybe adapts to the skin tone (since my skin tone ranges during the seasons). I would greatly appreciate your advice!

I want something that covers my acne as well as post-acne marks, has SPF, won't come off from sweat because I do a lot of dance performances, lasts all day and does not give a flakey look.

Closest peel to acne peels at dermatologist offices?
I'm looking for a peel that would be closest to my dermatologist office's chemical peel for acne & acne scarring. I had this done at their office two weeks ago to experience Zero peeling (I was told I should indeed peel if I'd left it on long enough for my skin's needs). I can't have it done again for a month for insurance reasons - any input on a strong product to mimic this in-house service? I've only tried the Ole Lemon Strip Flash Peel and thought it was decent.. I have combo, medium-toned skin with near-constant clogged pores (& blackheads) around my t zone (& nose), especially with the warmer weather. I have acne scarring with some pitting and discoloration/ dark spots as well. I use my Clarisonic Mia 3 once a day (& love it!) with REN's Rosa Centifola Cleansing Balm, KS toner & Murad Essntial C Day Moisturizer, which has SPF 30. At night I use a homemade serum, alternated with my Retin A. Thanks guys!!   **The peel at my dermas was some % glycolic acid and 15% TCA

Skin Regimen Advice
 Alright, I know I have been asking lots of questions lately but I need some help: -what is an exfoliator used for, how often to use it and the best one out there -what is a toner, how often to use it and the best one out there -morning and night oils -morning and night cleansers   I currently have Caudalie Polyphenol C15 Overnight Detox Oil and it works great, I also have Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum, Caudalie Mask (I believe it's the purifying one), First Aid Beauty Moisturizer which I am happy with, Tatcha Oil Cleanser and PTR Gentle Complexion Pads.   My skin is combination type and my main concern is pores (on my cheeks are kind of big but they have gotten smaller), blackheads on the nose and all over the face, whiteheads, clogged pores and pesky under the skin acne.   I want to aim for products that aren't too harsh or that dry out my skin. I am open to other cleansers since mine is about to run out. I kind of want to stick to an oil cleanser but I am open to buying another cleanser for my night routine. Or just for someone to give me advice on what to use and when.   Also, I have dark circles under my eyes and veins (which I know no cosmetic treatment will cure). So I am looking for a good eye cream.   I have a Clarisonic but I think that either: 1) I continue using it with a good cleanser and not oil based since I don't feel like they work together or 2) stop using the Clarisonic and substitute it with an exfoliator or anything else.   Also any good emergency acne treatments for the before mentioned problem areas.   Thank you ladies and thank you for being patient with me.

Recommendations for a morning cleanser
I'm looking for recommendations for a good morning cleanser, that I can keep and use in the shower.  In the last few months, I've tried both Purity Made Simple and Origins Cheeks and Balance.  I really like the Origins cleanser and may purchase again, but I want to see if anyone has recommendations for something else.  I use what I consider to be stronger cleansers at night (glamglow youthcleanse or supercleanse, and 2-3 nights a week I use the Fresh soy exfoliant), but I really don't think these would hold up well being kept in the shower and are a bit too abrasive for my morning routine.  My skin is combination, and not too much sensitivity.  Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated!

Never Had a Face Cleaning Regime!
That's right. I'm 25 yrs old and all I've ever used on my face is Dove Bar soap. No moisturizer, eye creams, exfoliaters, etc. I'm pretty confused on what products to use and what order to use these products.   Do i use: cleanser, face mask, toner, moisturizer? How often do I use a facial scrub? I have large pores on my nose, how do i fix that? I do have my eye on a few things that I want to try out from the website.   Some more specifics about my skin 1. I have a oily t zone and eye lids. Rest of my face is normal. 2. Some acne scars on my fore head. Just a few small spots. 3. Faint crows feet 4. I'm having a minor breakout right now on my fore head and a little bit on my temples. It's a little bit red, but skin toned bumps? (I'm African American)   Thank you!

New Product Suggestions
Hello ladies, Hope you all are enjoying the warm weather! I am interested in buying new products or add products to my regiment. So my goal is to get healthy, radiant, even toned skin and not have to use make-up (yet). I am 24 and I am currently using these products: before going to sleep, I wash my face using Tatcha Pure Step Camellia Cleansing Oil (every so often I use my Clarisonic but I was also thinking of getting a new one soon since mine is a little beat up), then I use Peter Thomas Roth Gentle Complexion Correction Pads, then I put Caudalie's Polyphenol C15 Overnight Detox Oil. In the morning I use facial wipes (like by Simple), then I apply the Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum and at last I put First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream Intense Hydration. All of these products have helped me battle dryness during the winter season and I will definitely be buying them again. But I feel like there is something else that can help me with my concerns: acne (rare as it is), the scarring and just the overall health and radiance of my skin. I can definitely say that my skin has improved but usually around my period, I break out and the area I usually break out is around the chin area. What I am looking for is products that will not dry my face out, help even out my tone, get rid of acne, blemishes and scarring, anti-aging (? not sure if it's too early but I have been using products that I am pretty sure fight aging), softness and hydration. I am interested in oils, toners, cleansers (having one for the night and morning since I find it hard to use the Tatcha on the Clarisonic). Anything you ladies recommend, I am eager to look up and try if it will work for me. Thank you!

Skin treatment
Hi! I am looking for a serum or treatment to reduce the look of pores, redness and to over all just perfect my skin so I can wear less make up. I am 22 so anti aging isn't a huge concern. My skin isn't too sensitive but I do get mild break outs here and there so I don't want anything too heavy. I've seen good reviews on the Lancôme visionnaire texture perfector (it claims to do all the things I've asked for) but I've heard it has a lot of alcohol in it.

Skincare Advice Needed/Updating Routine.
Hello all,   I have acne prone very sensitive skin. I use quite a few oil free products I am quite satisfied right now with the clearness of skin, I would like advice on adding a few anti-aging steps and a couple of other things.   The skincare products I currently use are:   1. Purity-don't love this-looking for a new cleanser 2. Kate Somerville Toner-love this use 2x daily 3. Kate Somerville Oil Free Moisturizer love this use 2x times daily 4. Tarte Eye Cream-will not be repurchasing-2x a day 5. Tarte Neck Cream-OK 6. Glam Glow Super Mud Cleanser and PTR Blemish Buffing Beads-use 1x or 2x a week. 7.Peter Thomas Roth Max Completion Pads-use 1x or 2x a week 8. Variety of Glam Glow Masks-rotate one about 1x week as needed 9. Dr. Brandts- Crease Release-meh jury is still out on this one. 10. Glam Glow Bright Mud actually love these but I use very sparsely because of the expense.   If I were to buy one or two more of the Glam Glow Cleansers (LOVE this line) and use the Glam Glow Cleansers exclusively, would that be too harsh for my skin? Also, looking at Kate Somerville's Gentle Wash as the Detox cleanser is too harsh for my skin.   I want to try and add a serum to my routine but so many have caused me to breakout. I am also allergic to retinol. i have forehead fine lines and the parenthesis staring around my mouth. I am noticing a bit of firmness change around my check area. Will a serum enhance the Dr. Brandt's Crease Release at all?    I am dying to try the Korres Black Pine serum and line. Do I need to try to try the entire line to see results or will the serum help on it's own. Yes, Sephora does offer a Black Pine kit but the serum isn't included which is a bummer for me. lol Any feedback? Serums that I have tried and had an adverse reaction to are: Kate Somerville's Oil Free Quench PTR Oil Free Unwrinkle Serum Tarte Maracuja Oil Ole's Truth Serum Josie M. Argan Oil   Heard so many mixed results with the Clarasonic with my skintype. Some say it works wonders and their skin has never been clearer and cleaner and others have told me, don't buy this as it just makes your skin worse. When I called the Rouge Line to get some advice, they said just use it once or twice a week but then how is that suppose to help the clarity of your skin if it only deep cleans once or twice a week?     Lastly, need advice on Essences. Heard so much about the SK II. Would I use an Essense in place of my toner? Wouldn't it make me more oily?   I know this is a very long post but would love some advice! Thank you!
