Dry skin and nothing seems to be working
Hello all! I have very dry skin, and I am at a loss when it comes to fixing the situation. I use Clinique's 7 day scrub every few days, and CeraVe hydrating facial cleanser when I am not using the scrub. I go in with Peter Thomas Roth's water drench cloud serum and for moisturizer I use Neutrogena hydro boost or First aid beauty face cream. When I am not wearing foundation, you can't see the flakes as much obviously but my face doesn't feel smooth... But when I am wearing foundation the dry patches are SO bad mostly on my forehead but pretty much every where. I really don't know how to get this under control. I use IT cosmetics your skin but better cc+ cream.. and so far it has been the least drying.. But since it is so thick and almost oily feeling I would need to set it.. Which I can not go near powder or it makes the situation 10x worse.   Any suggestions for exfoliators, moisturizers, serums or even foundations?

Help me! KP (Keratosis Pilaris) on face
      I have pretty severe keratosis pilaris on my arms, legs, and cheeks. Although i do not struggle with rosacea or acne, my cheeks are constantly red and bumpy! I've been using Amlactin which has helped a lot, but I was wondering if anyone had any other suggestions for dry, sensitive, KP skin. (I.e, serums, moisturizers, cleansers, exfoliators). My current skincare routine is primarily drugstore and i'm trying to change that. (Coconut oil to remove makeup, purity facial cleanser, St.Ives grapefruit exfoliator, any natural spray toner I have on hand, Pond's Dry Skin Cream, and Amlactin)   Xx,   Stella

What products you have to suggest for me
Hello, all. I am Janet, friends call me Jo. I work for a firm in Toronto. I am an accountant by profession. The work is hectic and because of this, my face has become dull . I happened to follow a diet plan so as to control my weight and belly size and after this, I got a wonderful change in my overall size of my body. But my face got saggy and turned dull. My skin was dry, so I underwent a facelift treatment ( http://www.drkreidstein.com/our-procedures/face/fa cial-rejuvenation-surgery/facelift/  ) two months before at Michael Kreidstein centre and I could get a wonderful change in my saggy face. But after that, I didn't use much foundation or any kind make ups. Before I used Maybelline foundation and Makeup forever-HD product as my skin was dry. It's my sister's wedding next month, and I don't know what kind of products that I should be using. Any products you got to suggest for me? I need to hide scars too,so is there any products that would help me in this situation? Will the products that I used before help me in this situation? I want to look awesome in her marriage and I don't want anyone to see my scars. Any suggestions for me?

need foundation advice!! :)
i have normal to very dry skin, meaning that based on weather or other circumstances my skin can go from a very normal  state to almost flaky dry. i also have a very red tint to my cheeks and nose, not as bad as rosacea, but it definitely does come into play when i chose a foundation. my skin is also on the more pale side and with the redness it makes it very hard to find a foundation that will cover up my flaws and redness and leave me looking a nice shade without any orange tint to it. i know this is a lot and it is complicated but i could really use some help when it comes to choosing a nice brand that would benefit my skin.

Skin Laundry?
I know there is another thread but it wasn't focused on the cleansers. I'm specifically looking for any experience with them! There aren't too many reviews on the products themselves. I'm interested in the Gentle Foaming Cleanser but the deep cleansing gel and the cream wash both sound interesting.

Korres Rose Oil vs. Caudalie Detox Night Oil
I have used Caudalie Detox Night Oil before and I do not remember why I switched to Korres Rose Oil but I got it around summer and now it feels harder to distribute on the face. It definitely feels dryer than Caudalie.   I have had a solid routine with Tidal as my moisturizer, Josie Maran's argan oil and Korres Rose Oil. But my face gets dry in the winter and for some reason it is always the chin. I've gotten samples of some moisturizers: Ole Henriksen Truth Revealed , Origins High Potency Night-A-Mins and PTR Mega Rich Cream. Now I think I like Origins cream but I am not sure about Ole. I always put the oil afterwards.   Also any thoughts on the new PTR Water Drench Hyaluronic Cloud Cream? Or Algenist Splash Hydrating Setting Mist?

Alternative to BareMinerals Purifying Facial Cleanser now that it's discontinued? r
I have pretty dry skin, especially in winter, and it's the only cleanser I've been able to use for years. It is an absolutely lovely cleanser, but now that it's discontinued, I'm not sure what to purchase next. I really don't want to spend $30 on a cleanser, only to have it dry out my skin (or make it ridiculously oily). I don't like the melting cleaners, or the cream-based cleansers. I can't believe BM discontinued a perfect facial cleanser. Any suggestions?
