Foundation for dry skin that will look flawless all night
I'm going to a formal dance and I need a foundation that will last all night. I have very dry skin so whenever I wear foundation, within the hour my face will become really flaky. I'm looking for something high coverage. I just want something that will look airbrushed all night

Skin Too Dry for Makeup
Every time I put on BB cream it immediately makes my skin incredibly flaky. I've even tried putting on moisturizer first or mixing the BB with some of my moisturizer and ten minutes after applying I'm a flaky mess. My moisturizer works fine and I'm not dry after applying it, it's any kind of coverage that's drying me up.   Im using the Smashbox BB currently and have no idea what to do! The attached photos is after applying.

Skin care!
Hello! So I want to start off by talking about my struggle with skin care. I originally was using the intense hydrating toner, night, and day moisturizer from the body shop which was great and gave my skin a ton of moisture. However I felt like the product contained lots of ingredients that I didn't want on my skin and felt like it was leaving sort of a film! So multiple times I have gone into sephora looking for a new skin care routine and ending up buying the products that they recommend (are pushing for that week) only to find I have wasted money and my makeup looks cakey and gross because my skin is still dry! The last recommendation was the lotus moisturizer but I have noticed it is very drying and my makeup ended up looking worse with this product! I almost feel like there are tons of products in the market that don't do what they say and sifting through them costs a lot of money and time!!  Does anyonr know of any skin care lines that have been recommended by a dermatologist or that you can recommend helps with dry skin and has more natural ingredients? I have heard of Sanistas recently but am hesitant to try it since it's not very well known!    Thank you!!!

Dry skin, looking for a serum
So I have super dry skin. When I say dry I mean kind of scaly looking and yes I drink TONS of water and keep hydrated. As for my skin care routine I wash (Fresh soy cleanser in the morning and Philosophy purity made simple at night) and moisturize twice a day, sometimes exfoliate in the morning with dermalogica daily microfoliant if my skin is looking particularly rough, use origins drink up intensive overnight mask and exfoliate twice a week alternating between a chemical exfoliant and origins modern friction. Luckily it's finally starting to get a little better and I think it's thank to Embryolisse. I haven't been using it long and i'm really hoping it won't break me out, I have problems with cystic acne around the jaw, those pesky little bumps under the skin that never come to a head and just sit there. I use a topical acne treatment which i'm sure didn't help with my already dry skin. ANYWAY to get to the point of this whole thing, I'm looking for a serum to supplement my routine. I purchased the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II and have been using it for about a month but it doesn't seem to be having much of an effect, any suggestions? Sorry, I realize this dragged on with a whole lot of information that is most likely unnecessary. Thanks in advance for your help!!!

Sanitas skincare!!
Hello! I have been looking for a new skin care regimine and have been out of luck after buying expensive recommendations that do nothing at all. My skin is very dry but I don't like an extremely dewy look with my makeup! I have heard of the Sanitas skin care and although it is not well known I have heard great reviews, has anyone tried this line or have a recommendation for other products in an dry skin care routine?

Would a teenager using retinol age them faster?
So my mom uses some retinol cream as moisturizer and she recently got me some since my skin has been very dry. She's of course older than me and I thought that using these types of cream on youthful skin could have a bad reaction since it is not made for my age group. Here are the ingredients in the moisturizer:   Water, propylene, glycol, cocos nucifera oil, glyceryl sterate, mineral oil, stearic acid, cetyl esters, propylene glycol, diazolidinyl urea, methylparaben, propylparaben, triethanolamine, isopropyl myristate, retinyl palmitate, cetyl alcohol, dimethicone, fragrance, tocopheryl, acetate, disodium EDTA, yellow10   I don't really know anything about ingredients, except for mineral oil and alochol. Doesn't mineral oil age you faster? and doesn't alcohol dry out your skin more? So does anyone know if this cream would have a negative effect on younger skin?

Exfoliating and Mask Routine
Just a quick question...do you exfoliate and then use a mask in the same evening/day? Or is it best to mask the day after exfoliating? A few days apart? I just don't know when it is most beneficial to the skin. Thanks, Paige.

Dry skin around nose. help!!
I have had this horrible dry skin around my nose for about a year. I moisturize day and night and I put Vaseline on it before I go to bed. It never seems to go away. Does any body have any recommendations? I use the Kat Von D tattoo foundation and I love it, but it makes my dry skin look really bad. Is there a full coverage foundation that would work well with dry skin? Thanks!

Avid Philosophy user.. but, new climate means new problems!
I've been using Philosophy products religiously and my skins has cleared and the tone evened out (30 y/o .. starting to see fine lines, etc). However, I've recently moved back to Texas and I'm feeling extra dry. I've tried the Glam Glow to boost moisture, but still having issues. I know it's been asked a million times.. but any suggestions for an ultra hydrating mask?    Thanks!

Dry skin around eyes - makeup flaking...but still creasing?
I'm not sure what's been going on with the skin around me eyes. I've always thought that I've had oily lids because my eye shadow ALWAYS creases. My concealer creases too (I have an annoying fold under my eyes). Recently, my skin around my eyes seems so sensitive and dry. Any makeup that I apply on that area gets all ashy and flakey, even seconds after applying my makeup. I recently started using an eye shadow primer (the white NARS one) to prevent the creasing, but the dryness is horrible. I try moisturizing a LOT and using an eye cream (got it as a gift from Taylor Swift, it's the same eye cream she uses......long story), but the area still seems dry.  Is there a product you can recommend?

Best Foundation for Dry-ish skin
Okay, so I have been using (fair) Bare Minerals matte (sometimes original) powder foundation for probably five years! My routine conists of the prime time orginal primer, and the i apply my bare minerals foundation.  I add bronzer and blush and spray with urban decay setting spray.  I'm thinking they have changed their formula, but I always have trouble with their product in the winter. I struggle with flaky dry skin behind my eyebrows and just in between on my forehead.  I moisturize wih hope in a jar so I'm not sure what the problem is.  After a couple hours my foundation looks patchy/blothcy.  I have to add lotion and start all over basically! If anyone has any tips on if i should change foundations or ways to moisturize better that would be helpful! I'll take all the recommendations I can get!!

Help, I'm in a skincare rut
This past month as been insane. I took on a new client, so my work has almost doubled & we got a puppy!      He's almost 4 months old & just started teething. I've had no time for BT, all my free time is reading puppy books & and stalking the Doberman forums making sure I'm a good mama. While he's sleeping I'm trying to do as much work as possible.    So my skincare routine has changed drastically. No more, spending 15 minutes am/pm on my face, honestly I'm lucky if I remember to wash it & moisturize it. Terrible, I know!    I can't go to the Rouge event on Sunday, we're old school Ukrainian & follow the Julian Calendar for Holidays and will be celebrating Easter. So I NEED you guys to give me some ahhhhmazing skincare recs. Something to get me out of this rut to want to take care of myself again. It can be anything from a scrub, moisturizer, BB cream...    I do use prescription Retin-A 2x a week, my skin is on the dry side of normal, but doesn't like pure oils, and I can only use mineral SPF.  I'm in need of a new moisturizer (running low on FAB Ultra repair cream, was thinking of OH sheer transformation but have used it before, so it sounds boring), a scrub without plastic beads, and something tinted I can slap on real quick without setting with powder so I don't look like a total bum while out walking the dog.  I do use SPF every morning and am happy with my products.    TIA! You guys have no idea how much I've missed you all. I don't even have time to go on IG

I have dry skin and am looking for a sunscreen that is almost oily that can go on under foundation.  I was using the yellow line of rodan and fields correcting sunscreen which I loved but it was just too expensive.

Retin A
What skincare products would you recommend using to help combat the flaky skin caused by the Retin A Micro 0.08% Gel?   Also, my derm has me using Onexton (3.75% Benzyl Peroxide/clydamycin phosphate) every morning for acne which also causes dryness and irritation. Morning Routine: Neutrogena Ultra Gentle Foaming Face Wash Onexton Neutrogena Healthy Skin Moisturizer spf 50   Night Routine: Neutrogena Ultra Gentle Foaming Face Wash Retin A Micro 0.08% Gel (After 20 min Every Other Night until May) Cerave Pm Moisturizer (45 min after Retin A)   ...

Small bumps on face
I have these tiny little bumps on either side of my nose just under my eye area and I cannot figure out how to get rid of them. I do cleanse twice a day and exfoliate twice a week. I've used the Kate Sommerville exfoliate and the Peter Thomas Roth peeling gel (they leave my skin feeling extremely soft but the bumps never go away). I know it's not milia 'cause I've had that over my left eye and it looked/felt completely different.

What's in your arsenal to battle severely dry hands?
So where I live, the snow has been insane, and the weather is so cold that I start to tear up, and then my tears start to freeze. I digress.   I am experiencing my driest and cracked hands ever.

need a super hydrating moisturizer
I have combo skin with an oily T-zone and my cheeks are usually normal to slightly dry but now that I've changed up my face routine there's an area of my cheeks close to my chin on both sides that are extremely dry that the skin is flaking. My cheeks feel really tight after cleansing. Before changing up my routine my cheeks were normal and did not feel tight and weren't flaking.   I've been rotating my usual creams but I haven't found that any of them really made a huge difference. I've used Philosophy's Hope in a Jar , Glamglow's Thirstymud Mask , and a moisturizer by Ole Henriksen that I was given a sample of by an SA but the name of it isn't clear on the bag.   I'm looking for a very hydrating moisturizer (for night time) that will hopefully bring my cheeks back to normal soon.

Foundation Separates Between Eyebrows
This is constantly a problem for me, no matter what I do or what products I use. My skin is dry all over, so also dry between my brows, but I'm happy with how my skincare routine handles dryness. I moisturize, I exfoliate, I've tried facial mists, setting sprays, at least a dozen different foundations - even BB cream separates on me. I have used many different application methods, from my fingers to a damp beautyblender to any and all brushes. I'm obviously frustrated. Has anyone else had this problem and figured out how to deal with it? I cannot think of anything else to try!
