hello lovely ladies! I'm in desperate need of assistance with my winter skin! I have year round dry skin and usually use Clinique dramatically different moisturizing lotion. But the last two winters, I've still developed dry flaky skin. I've tried Josie Maran argan oil and Body Shop vitamin E night mask for dryness. Both got rid of flakes but I had breakout in small pimples. I've also used Boscia exfoliating powder which I like as gentle exfoliate but can only seem to use it 1-2 times a week. I had been using a Lush cleanser Let the good times roll which I loved until the weather changed. I'm wondering if a gentler daily cleanser may be the solution? There are so many options between cleansing oils, milks and lotions that I'm feeling overwhelmed! I've been looking at FAB and origins but any guidance would be so appreciated.
Seeking something quite thick, rich and emollient that will make me very dewy and prep the skin. I find most creams just don't get the job done or are far too thin in texture. Also would like something natural and without nasty chemicals I can't pronounce. Unfortunately it's very hard to get my hands on the Magic Cream here in Canada and would rather purchase something sold at Sephora.
I'm really interested in starting to use a daily skin care regimen. I'm starting to worry about my skin and I want to kick aging in the butt as early as possible. I don't really have sensitive skin, but I do have dry skin. I find my skin is very dry and flakey and because of so I have blemishes most of the time. I wouldn't consider it acne, but there aren't many times when I don't have at least one blemish. My price range is in the lower range as I'm a student. Any advice on what products I should start using that will work for my type of skin is appreciated!
My dermatologist said that I had eczema skin which I never thought I had. I was wondering if anyone out there with eczema knows of any primers that will not irritate it/ ingredients I should avoid. Thank you for your help!
I recently started used the KVD Shade+Light with my KVD lock it Pressed Powder foundation. Ive stopped for a few days cause of this nasty cold i have (Dont really have energy or anything to put makeup on when im this sick). Since stopping ive noticed that my cheeks have become very dry/flaky. Its noticeable. Im not sure if its also this winter weather up here in canada or the makeup since this hasnt happened before with our cold winters. its a first. Has anyone else have this happen? Thoughts on it? Suggestions?
I'm currently in an exercise regime that has me doing 5 minutes of plank every day. I am developing dry skin on and near my elbows from this. What convenient product should I use to make this dryness go away?
I have medium dark skin and want a natural not too expensive makeup look to wear for school and everyday. I'm looking for lightweight base (foundation, bb cream, tinted moisturizer) that will give me a flawless dewy look and looks/feels like I'm not wearing makeup. I normally wear neutral brown eye shadows and am looking for new shades that match my skin tone and suit me well. Also a nude/natural pink lipstick/stain. A natural mascara that makes my eyes look big, gives length and isn't too voluminous or clumpy. A nice highlighter to make my cheekbones stand out but also looks natural. Also I'm in need of a new primer since my old one ran out and i want to try something new
I am looking for a new cleanser and moisturizer for my daily routine. I have very sensitive skin and would prefer the products to be oil-free and fragrance free. My skin is combo oily and dry at the same time. Its more so dry lately so hydrating products would be awesome! Any suggestions?
Hello all! I have pretty dry skin on my face, I always have. During the summer its way less noticeable and much more manageable. However I recently moved and the climate is much colder. I'm talking -30 Celsius some days Anyways, Due to the cold weather my skin has dried out to the point where I feel uncomfortable wearing any foundation as it always looks cakey (this is even after I exfoliate , moisturizer and prime my face). I moisturize my face at least twice a day, morning and night, however I'm not seeing much improvement. I need some suggestions on moisturizing products you guys have had luck with, or tips you can suggest for getting my foundation to lay smoothly. Thanks in advance for your help!
I know ew, it sounds disgusting, but I tend to have dry skin and sometimes when applying foundation my forehead tends to have dead skin which peels and it's annoying. I wish they had forehead scrubs like they do for the lips. BUT ANYWAYS can anyone recommend a good moisturizer for my dry skin /=
So I am trying to find an eye cream for the area below my eyebrow. I get really dry there. I dont like putting eye shadow and then it looks dry. What kind of cream do you all recommend for that area of my eye? Preferably for an over night deal.
I'm looking for a body lotion mainly to use after getting out of the showers in the morning/before bed at night. Normally I wear lighter fragrances, right now I use Daisy by Marc Jacobs. I'm hoping to find a lotion not too overpowering, but I would still like it to have fragrance. However, the Daisy by Marc Jacobs lotion is far too expensive for my taste in just a body lotion. I'd be willing to spend upwards of $25 or so if it comes in a bigger bottle. I would appreciate any suggestions for a good, long lasting and moisturizing body lotion. I don't have super dry skin, so a "thirst quencher" isn't completely necessary, but just a good, moisturizing everyday lotion. I'm open to all brands, I'm not allergic to any ingredients. I would prefer a more natural ingredient lotion but I'm open to anything. On this same note: I have extremely dry feet, any suggestions in that department, but more of a "thirst quencher" would be greatly appreciated!
Hi all! Happy New Year! The cold of the New Year is bringing some seriously dry skin on my face. I tried using FAB's Ultra Repair Cream and I loved it, but I hated the eucalyptus type smell so much so that I stopped using it. I. HATE. EUCALYPTUS. So, BT'ers, is there a formula extremely similar without the awful scent? Thanks!
Can we talk about foundation application for people with dry skin? I was just watching a video on foundation application, and it was pretty much saying what every other tutorial I've ever read or seen said: apply moisturizer, then primer, then foundation, then concealer, then powder. But in my personal experience, I haven't needed all those items. The purpose of a primer is to provide a smooth surface for foundation application and to control oil. But a good moisturizer will give you a smooth surface, and I really don't want anything to reduce my skin's oil-developing abilities -- it needs all the help it can get! Similarly, powder is meant to keep your face from getting too oily. Sure, it mattifies the foundation, maybe can help keep it from transferring ... but truth be told, I usually don't bother with powder because I can count on my skin to not get oily. On the other hand, one thing I DO need that is rarely mentioned in foundation tutorials is luminizer. This is not one of those steps I'm adding in if I get fancy. This is like a golden rule: if you wear foundation or bb cream, you're mixing luminizer in. That's because my dry skin can get pretty dull looking, and luminizer makes a huge difference on me. Since it's winter right now, I figure a fair amount of us might have dry skin right now, so I just wanted to hear if anyone else had a foundation applying routine that's different from the standard moisturizer-primer-foundation-concealer-powder.
I really want to reduce the redness in my skin on my face. I live in Canada so it can be difficult for me to control the dryness in my skin. I was kind of hoping for a serum as I don't have one, though I mostly just want whatever is going to work the best. Anyone know of a really good anti-redness product?
Flaky sensitive skn year round. I am 41 years old and I just started using Ole Henriksen truth serum, which I love. I have definitely seen a difference. Now I need a great night moisturizer. I don't want to break the bank but I need something that will work. Any suggestions?
So I naturally have a bit of dryness which requires moisturizer and moisturizing primers and foundations, but I'm starting to notice that the skin between my eyebrows (The top of my T-zone) is getting majorly dry when I put on makeup. I've been trying some new cleansers like the Peter Thomas Roth foaming cleanser and facial wipes (the foaming cleanser did wonders after I had major dryness for some odd reason and my skin was really peeling and stuff) and I've just purchased a few Lush facial masks that are specified for acne prone and dry skin. I'm really interested in getting some recommendations for skin care that is specific for dryness. The most I'm willing to spend is about $45 maximum so any recommendations for products would be greatly appreciated! I'm so excited to see what everyone recommends. I don't currently have any pictures of my dry skin because I just got my wisdom teeth out yesterday and I haven't done anything to my face for a few days, but the majority of the dryness is in my T-zone and on my chin and oddly my eyebrows get really dry too. Thanks again!! xoxo
I just recently purchased the Naked foundation and Nars primer, as well as the Smashbox Photo Finish Color Correcting Adjust Primer. Before purchasing these products, I never really had a problem with dry skin. Now, I have a major problem with dry skin and flakes on my chin and eyebrow area. I moisturize a lot with Olay and also Simple, but nothing seems to be clearing the dry skin. Do any of these things have reputations for causing dry skin? Anything I should change or try? HELP
hii everyone now that know that i have more probabilities to get signs of aging cuz of my dry skin D: im really concerned about products that contains spf and moisturising stuff would u recomend me something?
Recommendations for a super moisturizing body wash and a after shower body oil (that doesnt leave me feeling greasy)? Showers zap my skin of moisture. I have tried several drug store brands and havent found the perfect products yet. I am willing to try some mid-range/non-drugstore brands. Any suggestions?
I am in my early 30's and have never had a skincare routine. I do not wear makeup, and have dry skin and a bit of redness going on. I would like to get something that is like an all in one. Something for dry skin, redness, evens tone and anti aging. Is there a product for all of this in one bottle?
Okay, this sounds a little ridiculous to type but my feet are so unbearably itchy. I have tried everything I can think of. Body butter and hydrocortisone cream and soaking them and scrubbing them and leaving them alone... nothing seems to work. Any suggestions/experiences, or am I destined to live in this constant state of itchiness?
I have very dry skin flaky and crack I tried a moisturizer from Clinique intense repair but it doesn't help at all it's still so so dry. And I am using argan oil quite better but not that much helpful Can you recommend me a some product that can help .
