Everyday I feel more and more uncomfortable in my skin. I have fair, sensitive, acne prone dry/combo skin, with acne scars on the sides of my cheeks. Seeing girls with flawless skin and makeup applications makes me feel more self-conscious about my skin and makeup that never seems to look right on me. Too drying and matte, too illuminating and oily, too powdery etc. No matter what foundations or techniques or primers I've used, nothing seems to change. I'd like to toss out everything that I've got and start fresh, including my skin care products and choice of foundation, starting with skin care first. Currently I'm using Garnier face wash for sensitive skin, L'oreal alcohol-free toner, and moisturizer also from Garnier with SPF 30. Once in a while I exfoliate, but I've flipped flopped between products since my skin is sensitive to abrasive beads that are usually in those products. Any suggestions would be amazing! Thank you!
For about the past 2 months my foundation looks gross aroundmy nose. The top of my nose is a little oily, while the sides of nose are dry. I use either the Nivea mens post shave balm that everyone talks about or the maybelline baby skin primer. I switch out between my Loreal infallible pro matte, Maybelline fit me matte and poreless or the revlon colorstay foundations. I have stopped wearing makeup because I don't know what to do. Im looking for something on the affordable side if possible, no more than $30. Thanks!!
so basically I have dry, rather sensitive skin, and I'm looking for some great skincare products. I'd like to start anti-aging now even though I'm only 18. So what cleansers, serums, masks, eye creams, moisturizers, and night creams should i look into? xoxo
Hi there. So I just recently made my first Lush purchase. I bought the Mask of Magnaminty and the Full of Grace serum. I was wondering which cleanser would be best to use for my skin. I have dry skin with redness and just finished treating my rosacea. Thanks so much for any and all responses. :-)
Hi! I am looking for a cleanser to use with my Clarisonic, and was wondering what you recommended. I have dry to normal and sensitive skin that is the slightest bit oily in the T-zone. Thanks in advance!
I am 22 years old and have always had dry, acne prone skin. I have been struggling because my skin has flakes (dry skinned girls you know what I mean) and it clings to any kind of makeup so I look extra flaky and cakey. The problem is my body tends to over compensate by kicking up oil production so by the end of the day I'm more combination. I'm assuming it's all the oil and the flakes combined that clog my pores and cause my acne issues (correct me if I'm wrong please). I just want to know if there are any types of products, specific products or routine that I can use to break the vicious cycle. Any help would be appreciated!!!
I don't know what this is, but I just have dry, flaky skin just at the creases of my nose that are particularly visible when I wear makeup (mineral or liquid) and I don't know how to get rid of it. I've tried good moisturizers, but it doesn't seem to work and it's very isolated to just the nose crease. I do have dry skin in general, but a good moisturizer usually takes care of any dryness EXCEPT here. It's not so much "patches" of skin, it looks maybe more like pores that have flaked off or something. It's hard to describe. Maybe I will take a picture. Does anybody know what the heck I'm talking about? lol If so, what skin regiment would you recommend?
Hello! So I have very dry skin year round. I have dry patches by my nose and sometimes on my cheeks and chin. I have been using many different skin care products to make my skin happy and hydrated but can't seem to find the right products. I have been researching about the skin care line called First Aid Beauty and was wondering if those products would be good for me to use. Just wanted some opinions. Thanks!
I used to use a combination of Philosophy Omega 3,6,9 Replenishing Oil and Decleor Ultra Cocooning cream. The new Philosophy Replenishing glee is inferior and the Omega oil by FRESH is no where near as hydrating. Unfortunately Decleor updated it's ultra cocooning cream and it's not the same. I'm searching for equivalent replacements without glycolic acid, retinol etc as I use these separate. Looking for a super duper hydrating night cream please help!
Hello! I have always had oily combo skin. As soon as I turned 30 my skin has been so dry and dehyrated! I have tried a few foundations and have returned them. Nothing sits well. I am looking for a hydrating foundation
Recently I have started to notice after i have applied my make up that my skin looks very dry. I use a face moisturizer, then a CC cream and than liquid foundation by smash box (15 hour) after all that i use translucent poweder in some areas of my face and then a perfecting powder by smash box another. What can I use or do differently so that my face isn't dry or look dry?
My skin is feeling dry right now I am using the Kate Somerville Goats Milk Moisturizer but still feels dry..I have very sensitive skin...any suggestions...I am using smash box primer over the goat milk and wondering if that could be causing the dryness....any suggestions? Do I need a different moisturizer? Thanks!
I'm super lazy (for lack of a better word) with my skin care. I haven't really had a problem with it growing up, but I am 26 and figure I better get on top of it. I am looking for something gentle enough for everyday. Good for dry and sensitive skin. Takes off makeup, and if I'm lucky gets rid of blackheads? Thanks in advance.
I Hi, I have super dry dull skin and my age is 26. I got to fly in next two weeks and its very long flight ( 19hrs+ 2hrs layout + 5hrs ). I am looking for super hydrating moisturizer/ mask that will help dry skin and keep moisturized. All my family members will be in airport to receive me so its very important to look fresh and bright. Please suggest me some hydrating moisturizer and mask to carry on flight. Not super expensive though. I have some in mind let me know which works better or anything that is not in the list; Origins Drink up Intensive Overnight mask Clinique Surge Extended Thirst Relief Clinique Moisture Surge Overnight mask Dior Hydra Life Jelly Sleeping mask Jurlique skin Balancing face oil ( A deeply moisturising treatment oil ) Origins High potency Night-A-Mins SKin refining oil Thanks.
I would say i have very normal skin. I usually only break out on my forehead during my period and it is very mild. I am looking for a full coverage foundation because I have very red cheeks that i am not a fan of. A lot of foundations i try samples of either turn flakey, crease under my eyes, or get very oily on my forehead. which foundation would work well with my skin and which should i at least try. I have tried Makeup Forever HD stick, Clinique chubby, and a sample packet of Marc Jacobs Re(marc)able full coverage.
Hello Everyone! I have normal to dry skin that is also sensitive. I have ezcema and sensitive skin and also the occasional hormonal breakout during that wonderful time of the month. I need help trying to find a moisturizer. please!
Hello all! I've been dealing with a dry flakey face since my late teens (about 5 years). It's centered on my T-zone and upper cheeks. I've tried all kinds of different moisturizers and natural oils, but nothing ever seems to be absorbed. It just seems to sit on my skin. I’ve made diet changes and have been making sure to stay hydrated, but my skin still stays persistently dry. I’m at my wits end, and nothing seems to be working. My skin is fairly sensitive- any suggestions for anything that might help me re-balance my skin’s natural oils? Thanks!
Hi, I'm used to having an oily T zone, with dry cheeks but I've been using pHisoderm from the drugstore for normal to combination skin and it broke me out into a rash really bad. I'm not used to having so many blemishes on my face. And my face is super dry now and tight. Does anyone know of a good face wash for night time and night time moisturizer that I can use to help me? I've thought about getting Origins Checks and Balances since I've used it before, the travel size and it worked pretty well back when I used it.
Hey BTgals, I just got reminded this morning how much my skin loves oils. I had been skipping on them for the past 2 weeks since I'd been suffering from pesky breakouts + been traveling, so didn't really have any with me. Last night, made a dash to the drugstore to get some oil (since there's no Sephora close by), and ended up getting a Loreal facial oil, and slathered that on my face last night! Oh my! My skin looks positively happy and glowing today With the VIB sale round the corner, wanted to hear what your fave face oils were. I haven't tried tons, but mine would be: - Tata Harper Replenishing Nutrient Complex - Caudalie Premier Cru (although I could do with a less heavy rose scent) Do share your faves!!
In search of THE BEST FACIAL MOISTURE CREAM. I am 43 years old and my dry skin is getting increasingly worse! I have tried lots of products and haven't found one that I feel really helps. Please, any suggestions would help. At this point I am not concerned about the price, It's a investment that I'm happy to make if it will actually help!
Hi everyone. I use to have extremely oily skin and over the past 6 months my skin has been super super dry. I have the Jose argan oil and moisturizers but my makeup just always ends up looking cakey around my nose area and under eyes. I use a wet sponge, i have tried lightweight concealers to thick ones. Is there any advice for makeup not looking cakey?
What foundation would you guys recommend for someone with super dry skin? Right now my face is just really dry, especially on my forehead for some reason! It's so flaky and I hate it! I need a foundation that isn't going to stick to the flakes and look like a cakey mess! I also want a foundation with pretty good coverage because I have redness. I recently bought the UD Naked Foundation and I don't even know how it would have worked because it was so watery/runny. I couldn't even get any use of the product because of how runny it was, even after shaking up the bottle. So please don't recommend a foundation that is gonna run down my hand when I pump it. Are all water based foundations going to be runny? I'm not sure if the UD is water based, but I heard water based is good for dry skin, but I'm just worried it will be runny and too watery. The UD one was so watery the Beautyblender just drank it up :-( I really wanted to try to KatVonD Lock It Foundation, but reading through the FAQs on it people said it's not for people with dry skin :-( I also don't want to spend more than $50 dollars on a foundation either. Sorry I know I sound super picky I am just in search of a holy grail foundation. So anyway overall I just need a foundation with full coverage or close to full coverage that is hydrating and wont stick to flaky skin. Thanks so much in advance to everyone who replies to this :-)
My eight year-old son with special needs has VERY dry hands, due in part I'm sure to all of the hand-washing in school. I doubt that any of the products on the market are toxic, but can anyone recommend a really good hand cream that's safe for kids, in case it should get into his mouth? I'm currently using Aquaphor Baby on his hands at bedtime (which is almost like using Vaseline) but it doesn't really seem to be doing much. As you can sort of see in the photo (this is the best image I can find of his hands at the moment), the skin isn't cracking, but it's rough and dry, especially on the backs of his fingers and on his palms. He's non-verbal so he doesn't complain, but I know it must be a bother. Thanks for any advice or suggestions!
