Suggestions on an anti-aging skincare
Hi all,    I am in my late 20s with dry, dehydrated skin and have been taking steps towards a good skincare regime and feel like I am halfway there. My problem areas are: dehydration, dark spots from acne scarring (i don't breakout on a regular basis though), and under-eye fine lines.   The only anti-aging item in my regime is the Dermadoctor Vit C serum that I use in the morning, and my sunscreen. I want to add in some more elements, such as a good anti-aging serum, facial oil and night cream. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!

Switching over to Biodroga MD
Hello guys im going to switch brand from Paulas Choice to Biodroga most because i dont like their PC spf Moisturizers  i use one for sensitive skin right now with spf 30 and with the retinol super antioxidant serum and it **bleep** up my skin. I used that serum with another daycream and never had any problem at all.    I like that serum but in the same time its a silicone serum that can cause break outs. Maybe i stick with it as a night serum maybe not.     Anyway anyone in here who tried Biodroga MD Skin Booster Uv-Protection Cream Spf 30 or 50? I want hydration on my skin and im planing to buy it with the BIODROGA MD SKIN BOOSTER Advanced Formula Vitamin C Concentrate 15 serum you think that will give me enough hydration because i want the spf factor or should i buy an extra   Biodroga MD Perfect Hydration 24-h Care or    Biodroga MD ANTI-AGE Collagen Boost Day Care and switch over to lets say the Biodroga MD Skin Booster intense Moisture serum .     Im asking because Paulas Choice spf 30 moisture **bleep**ed up my skin and i dont liker their moisturizers at all my skin dosen´t feel hydrated more dry and sticky like an irritating glue so yeah no now i switch over to Biodroga MD instead.   So whats your advice?

Mattifying, non-oily Moisturizer to wear with Urban Decay Naked foundation?
I've recently starting wearing the Naked foundation by Urban Decay, and I love how natural it looks and how lightweight it is! The only issue I'm having, is that my face is combo, oily in my T-Zone and dry and red on my cheeks. I've been using the Fresh Youth Lotus face cream as my moisturizer, but it doesn't seem to be doing anything to help the dryness. So I started using a serum (from Kiehl's) before the Fresh moisturizer, but that doesn't seem to make a difference either. I've also started using the Argon Milk oil from JM in addition to the other two items, and that seems to make the rest of my face dry (although it is helping the oilyness of my T-Zone). So my question to the rest of you beauties, is what in the world can I use on my face to control the oil, and not make me look dewy or oily, but not dry my skin out? My skincare routine is taking up an awful lot of time in the mornings so, now I'd like to reduce the amount of products if possible. I'd love to hear what combination of products you use that have worked for you! Thanks so much for your help!

Every foundation brush I've tried exfoliates my face
Hi BT! I was hoping someone could help me out in this issue and point me in the right direction. When it comes to applying my liquid foundation I only use a Beauty Blender because every other brush I have found will exfoliate my cheeks and cause it to look like I have small scales. I was looking to try out a powder foundation (any recommendations here would also be appreciated!) for quick looks on the weekends or just going to the grocery store and I wanted to make sure I had a proper brush that won't exfoliate my skin when I apply it. My skin is dry and sensitive.  Quick edit: I've tried the F80, ELF flat top brush, Real Techniques jumbo powder brush, Tarte the Buffer Airbrush foundation brush, and a ELF kabuki brush

how to get an autistic young man into skincare (and caring about his appearance)
How should I go about introducing skincare products to my younger brother? He's turning 23 in May. He doesn't use any type of skincare products AT ALL. He's autistic so he thinks that skincare is a girl thing and he has this weird compulsion to shave his face. He uses an electric shaver every single day but he legit has no facial hair so all he's doing is irritating the crap out of his skin. His skin is super dry, red in patches, obviously irritated. It looks bad. I want to try to slowly introduce products to him that will first of all help target these problems and then second of all slowly build a very basic skincare routine.   I was looking at the Jack Black line and was wondering if someone could give me some feedback on the items I'm interested in or if you think there are other items that would help his situation.   First, everyone needs a lip balm!! And he has crazy chapped lips too. This can be a small thing to get him interested but I think he might view this as "lip gloss" and girly. And I hear good things about them as well so I wouldn't mind keeping it if he didn't use it. For skincare I'm looking at the Post Shave Cooling Gel. I get that it's supposed to be for people that use razors but the description of the product is everything that he needs it to be. And of course he'll need a moisturizer, been checking out the Double Duty Face Moisturizer.   There are a lot of nice sets but I don't want to invest a ton of money on products he might not even use and I don't want to overwhelm him with all the stuff that comes in a set. I was thinking of just focusing on the bare essentials of what he needs and then if he likes it and uses it I would slowly buy him more.   **EDIT: Just want to say thank you to everyone who posted! I had a busy day (business test!) so I wasn't online today. I think I'm going to buy that pack of 3 lip balms so I can keep one. I want to see what the craze is all about.

BUMPY SKIN / UNEVEN TEXTURE
  I've made a post about this before and I was advised that the little skin-coloured bumps on my skin are actually clogged pores. It looks even WORSE when I wear foundation (wearing MUFE HD foundation in the pic). So I'm doing everything I'm supposed to do... (I think). I'm drinking lots of water everyday, I'm moisturizing, I'm exfoliating, I bought a clarisonic to cleanse-- but the bumps are still there. I think they might have gotten worse actually. Here are the products I use: Boscia Makeup-breakup Oil cleanser, Purity Made Simple cleanser with the Clarisonic, Peter Thomas Roth exfoliating peel gel (twice-a-week). I use Clinique moisture surge or dramatically different lotion for my very dry skin. Is there another product I should be buying? I need help

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!!!

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.

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!!!

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?
