Q. My face is dehydrated & uneven with a rough texture, please help
My skin is extremely dehydrated and dull lately. I use a clarisonic every night but no matter how much I exfoliate it never seems to look anything but rough. Large pores on my cheeks, lines on my forehead & an uneven looking texture all over. My skin is extremely sensitive and is frequently irritated on top if all this. My moisturizer does nothing for the dryness & my makeup looks awful sitting on the roughness. I use cetaphil face wash, cerave moisturizer spf 30 & MyChelle hyaluronic acid serum at night   I'm only 28, please help!

Q. Skincare Order?
I have dry skin and I was wondering what order y'all do your skincare in at night or in the morning and maybe what products you use to help with the dryness. Also, how long should I wait to put on makeup after my skincare routine?

Q. Skincare Subscription Boxes
Does anyone know of any skincare-only subscription boxes? I just cancelled my Birchbox subscription, since the points system was really the only reason I was sticking around, so I'm looking for a replacement. I'm pretty picky with makeup, but still new to the world of skincare, so it'd be nice to find a subscription box with only skincare items (not mask-only boxes, though).   I have looked into some of the Korean skincare boxes, Miss Tutii and MishiBox in particular, but I'm a little wary of the quality of some of the cheaper Korean brands that are often in those boxes and I am very uncomfortable at the prospect of getting skin-whitening products. I also have gotten the impression that a lot of Korean skincare products are for oily skin, and since I have very dry skin, I would have to have a box that is customized for dry skin.   I would love to hear from subscribers about their experiences with different boxes!

Q. SOS Skincare Products!
Hi Everyone, For quite some time now I've been trying to find the right products for me! Background about myself: 20 year old with normal/dry sensitive skin, redness,texture, finally seeing some wrinkles, and suffer from breakouts around my period. I need help finding all new products besides cleanser and toner!  I would love to start using serums, eye creams, or anything else.   Another question is when should I begin looking into anti-aging products since i'm only 20?   Thanks!

Q. Dry Skin
I have mildly dry skin, although relatively clear. That being said, I don't use foundation, I use BB Cream instead, but I use powder bronzer and blush. My skin continues to be dry although I moisturize as much as possible. Do you think switching over fully to liquid face makeup will help me appear to look more hydrated, or would it not make much of a difference?

Q. clarisonic dryness
I was so excited when I purchased my clarisonice Mia. I started using it on Friday.  I was using it twice a day with Philosphy Purity, followed by Clinique Toner and Clinique Dramatic Lotion Gel (I can't remeber the whole name.)  By today, Tuesday (4 days after i began use) my face is SO DRY and flaky all of my chin and cheeks. I have combination skin and usually have a oily t-zone and dry cheeks.  The flaking on my chin and cheeks is unbareable.  It looks HORRIBLE!!!  Has anyone else experienced this?  I read somewhere that I should cut back to only using it once a day instead of twice.  But do you think i should get a stronger moisturizer?  I have been using the cleanser, toner and gel for years and have never had this issue before. I'm afraid I might have to return the MIA!!!

Q. Hydration for Eczema Prone Skin
I've lived with severe eczema for my whole life. I can't keep my skin moist and hydrated unless I use Vaseline which causes my skin to look very glossy and greasy. I have used First Aid Beauty hydration cream and other creams/lotion that do not have the glossy look, but my skin still feels dry and tight after applying. Which then causes my skin to wrinkle and peel. All I'm looking for is a way to keep my skin hydrated without using a lotion that looks greasy.    If there is also a way to decrease the sights of eczema scars that would be appreciated.

Q. Dry, flaking skin with redness equals a sad me.
I have really strange skin. One day it could be perfectly fine just the regular oils like always. Then the next day, I have dry flaky skin with some redness. Pretty much it comes and it goes, but it happens especially now since it's winter time. I need something I can use during the times I get the dry, flaky, red skin. This only happens on my face, and certain parts too. It happens on the sides of my mouth, right beside my nose, and my forehead. I've tried everything and nothing works, other products either damage my skin or don't do anything. I also have fair/sensitive skin so it's hard finding certain things that work. What's a product that works that isn't way too expensive? Around $20-$50? Please help me, I don't know what to do anymore, and this really lowers my self-esteem.   EDIT: I bought something that is totally the best deal ever and has become my ultimate favorite mosturizer and works extremely well for this dry flaky skin problem. I saw here on the online sephora website, this First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream and I saw it had really great reviews, it is the best mosturizer I've used lately. I bought this on December 9th, today is December 12th and I've yet to see any flakiness or any irritation and my skin feels really hydrated. I only bought the 2 oz. tube since I only had $20 on me at the time, which is perfectly fine because I don't pile on a bunch of mosturizer on my face just a couple of drops and I'm great. Plus it doesn't make my skin oily or shiny, but it doesn't dry it out or burn my skin either. Best $12 I've ever spent.

Q. Foundation will crack and show flakes
I have dry skin that flakes, and wearing foundation only makes that more obvious. It'll emphasize every dry spot and 'crack' on my cheeks around my nose (imagine really really dry ground and how it cracks when there isn't water, the foundation will do that, but on a very tiny scale) and it's noticeable if someone is standing near me. I've tried everything from exfoliating, moisturizing, to primer, to using/combining different types of foundation, and nothing seems to work. The foundation refuses to blend in with my skin and apply smoothly and evenly to my skin. I like wearing foundation to reduce redness, but I'm so self conscious with it on, I'd rather go bare faced than even use a little to avoid the scaly cheeks that come with foundation. Any suggestions??? (I usually wash my face day and night, exfoliate 2X a week, and always moisturize day night and in between. To apply makeup I exfoliate if I'm really flaky, moisturize, wait, moisturize again, apply primer, wait, apply foundation, apply setting powder)

Q. How to get flawless foundation when you have dry skin?
So, I have a real problem with dry skin right now. It seems like nothing can quench it! I wash my face morning and night with a moisturizing face wash, and moisturize with a fairly thick lotion both at night and before applying my make up. I use Too Faced Hangover Rx primer (which I consider pretty moisturizing) to boot!  I'm currently using Make Up Forever's HD foundation with a stippling brush. I even tried adding my moisturizer to my initial layer of foundation this morning, but nothing can get rid of those nasty dry patches!  Help! Anyone else have this problem? If so, how did you fix it??   --Hannah

Q. Good Winter Moisturizer/Cleanser
Hey all,  I'm pretty new here and I need help with finding a good winter moisturizer.  My skin varies from season to season; I find it's a bit more oily in the summer and a lot drier in the winter.  My skin is starting to feel very tight and it's starting to become more flaky.  The current cleaners I have dry me out; I have purchased Philosophy's Purity and that broke me out. My skin really isn't sensitive but I honestly don't know what would irritate it. I would also like a good moisturizer for the day time because the moisturizers I do have are extremely heavy and are more suitable for night time.  Any suggestions?    Thank you!

Q. Best body lotion for very dry skin?
Hi can anyone tell me what is the absolute best body lotion for very dry skin? Something that really works and holds moisture for quite awhile without having a bad smell or feeling sticky. I have tried so many lotions, I recently tried Aveeno's dry skin body lotion and its good but it smells like rubber to me and I do not like that plus it can be a little sticky. I have heard Cetaphil and Eucerin make some good ones as well but I wanted some advice on the feel and smell of some good options. I want to try to get one that isnt super expensive since I go through lotion like crazy as I reapply constantly through the day so I prefer a brand from the drugstore or in a big bottle.

Q. Moisturizing bb/cc cream for very pale, dry skin
Hey, I'm looking for a suitable bb or cc cream for my ultra pale, very dry skin. The winter only makes my skin even drier of course, and therefore more noticeable. while I'm trying to find a product or line of products that work for my skin, I'd lime something that isn't too matte (I've tried the dr. Jart+ line and it feels too tight and shows all my dry spots), and isn't too dark ( smashbox, tarte, and many others are way too dark or yellow). Any help would be appreciated! Not looking for a foundation, just light coverage. And for reference, I'm the lightest shade in Urban Decays Naked foundation, and have pink undertones. Thanks!
