Fellow makeup lovers with Rosacea, how do you treat and conceal it?
So it turns out I may be entering the early stages of Rosacea and I was wondering how others treated and concealed the redness. What skincare products do you think works best? Whether it's over the counter or prescribed.

Negatives from retinol/ retinoids?
I've just started using Sunday Riley's Luna oil, which has retinoids in it.  I use it maybe once a week, but only for a few weeks. I don't have sensitive skin but AHAs are an immediate and noticeable issue. I used the Luna oil last night and this morning my skin has a few red blotches, a bump and some other spots.  It could be totally unrelated to the Luna oil so I don't want anyone to assume the oil is a bad one!!!  And everyone's skin reacts differently to different ingredients (if this oil has any AHAs in it…then that would be the issue for me, probably not the retinoids). I've uses retinoids/retinol a few times in the past but rarely, so am not sure of the potential related problems my skin could have. Does anyone have input or insights as to what bad effects could retinoids have on skin?   Like I said, it might not be Luna causing the problems or it could be that my skin can't handle an ingredient.  But I thought I'd ask. My skin has a red spot, a few small bumps and this odd patchy area by my temple.   Thanks!

Skin Care Products for Skin Cancer
I was just diagnosed with Basal Cell Carcinoma (a skin cancer) on the bridge of my nose. I have to have it removed on May 12 and I would like to know the best products I can use to lessen the appearance of the scar, and to protect my skin from future sun damage. It is a very small spot and the doctor said he will make the cut go sideways so it will blend in with any natural wrinkles I have. I'm 56 and don't have many wrinkles yet but I really would like to minimize the scar as it heals. I would also like to find a foundation/moisturizer with an SPF of at least 30.  I prefer something completely natural.   Thank you for any suggestions and recommendations.

What should the steps be in a skin care routine?
I feel like there are so many different steps to put into a skin care routine...how do I figure out what the right ones are...and in which order? Should you wash, treat, serum, moisturizer?

Super Dry Skin Around One Eye
Hi! I don't know if anyone has ever experienced this, but somewhat recently around the corner of one of my eyes has become super flakey. It's the side of the eye where the tear duct is and goes a little into my eyelid. The skin around my other eye is completely fine and all moisturized and smooth, so it's just one eye. I moisturize my whole face equally and have even been putting more around the super dry skin in hopes of fixing it. It kind of works, but the only thing I found that works is putting Neosporin on it. I only put it on there since the skin would become so dry it would flake off and be pretty raw and red (I make sure not to touch my eye with it, and I do it right before I sleep). When i do put Neosporin on it, the skin actually becomes less dry and looks like it's healing. Any suggestions on what it could be and what I could do to fix it? Thanks!

Best treatment for keratosis pilaris on face?!
I have mild KP on my face, and while it has never really bothered me that much (since I can just cover it with a lot of makeup) I want to finally do something about it.  My skin is normal to dry, and not very sensitive.  I currently use my Clarisonic daily, which helps a little, but it's not quite enough.  Does anyone have any product recommendations that are safe to use on the face?!

Milia on eyelids
A few days ago, a makeup artist did a makeover for me and she used face primer (those silicone type) on my eyes. I was horrified but I didn't want to say anything in case she felt insulted since she's the one who studied makeup.. Now I'm really regretting because I have milia on my eyelids. How can I get rid of them (without extractions)?   On a side note: I gave my friend the Too Faced shadow insurance to use as an eye primer but she ignored it and went ahead to use her own face primer on my eyes. Makeup artists.. do you feel offended if your client gave you their own products to use? I previously told the makeup artist that my skin was extremely sensitive and prefer to use my own products..

Getting rid of puffy under eyes
For as long as I can remember I've had puffy under eyes. I don't really have issues with dark circles as much as general puffiness.   I know it doesn't help that I tend to pound water right before I go to sleep - something I've been doing since I was very little. So I'm willing to accept what that creates but would love any ideas or products that can quickly eliminate under eye puffiness and tighten that skin back up.

Eyelid Dryness
Hello,   So this morning when I went to apply my eye primer I noticed my lids and the inner corner of my eyes near my nose we're dry and slightly flaky. I opted to use my Algenist Eye Cream on my lids very small amount and put my primer over top. It seems to work, now I was wondering what can I do to fix this dryness issue as I know you really shouldn't use eye cream on the lids due to the skin being so thin ?. I only did this today but if you got a quick remedy that would be great.

Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation
I am 15 years old and I recently bought the foundation, am I too young to be wearing foundation ? Is the foundation non-comedogenic? My mom has told me that foundations can make the skin age faster, is that true ? I am worrying because the foundation is quite pricy and I'm hoping that there won't be any regrets. Also, Would it work if I were to mix it with moisturizer to turn it into a tinted moisturizer? As for additional information, My skin is quite oily (especially the T-Zone, oh boy) and have a few acne spots and pimples here and there. Thank you

Looking for an eye cream
I'm in my 20's, and decided to start using an eye cream to help my dark circles under my eyes and help revitalize elasticity and prevent wrinkles. I have fair skin, so the sun takes a toll on the most delicate parts of my skin, and I want to start using an eye cream now to help. I've been looking at eye creams like these that Sephora recommended via the filters. http://www.sephora.com/miracle-worker-retinoid-eye -repair-cream-P377330?skuId=1482546 http://www.sephora.com/hypoallergenic-firming-eye- cream-P294204?skuId=1366814 http://www.sephora.com/bio-performance-super-corre ctive-eye-cream-P378348?skuId=1507631 http://www.sephora.com/plantscription-tm-anti-agin g-power-eye-cream-P394702?skuId=1675206 http://www.sephora.com/lift-lighten-eye-cream-P783 25?skuId=945337   Any suggestions?

Relatively Inexpensive Eye Cream
I just started using a new face moisturizer with sunscreen in it so I can't use it around my eyes, like I was able to do with my previous moisturizer.  Now I am on a search for an eye cream to keep this area moisturized, however, my eyelids tend to be oily.  So I'm trying to find an eye cream that moisturizes, but isn't too oily on my eyelids.  Any suggestions?!  I was looking at the Clinique All About Eyes since it has such great reviews, but I want to ask around first.  I don't want to spend an arm and a leg either on it, at most $35.  Thanks!!

Thoughts on Paula's Choice?
Do you agree with her views on skincare products?  I'm on a hunt for my Summer night serum & moisturizer. I think I'm going to purchase the Perricone Blue Plasma even though it stinks so bad of fish & I hate fish. I've been researching products a lot and one of the sites I was on was Paula's Choice. She is not a fan of the serum... Actually the more I read through her "beautypedia" reviews, it seems like she's not a fan of a lot of products. I also got a feeling she was mainly trying to push her own products and Olay.  Examples:  - She's against treatment cleansers since it's just "washed down the drain". I have to disagree with this. When I use a treatment cleanser, although they can be drying, I do see improvement in my breakouts.  - Witch Hazel is bad. I find witch hazel to be an important ingredient when choosing a toner. She think it's just as bad as alcohol if not worse.    Products she gave a "poor" rating to:  - Anthony Logistic's Glycolic cleanser got a poor rating because it doesn't contain any glycolic acid.  - doctor dennis gross's A/B pads since we can just skip step 2 by simply splashing water on our face to deactivate step 1.  - Dior Capture Totale One Essential Serum because it's not a "miracle serum" since it's primarily just "water, slip agents, and alcohol" - ExfoliKate - Just about every Ole Henriksen product I love   - Origins Checks & Balances, Charcoal Mask & every other decent product from them - Most Murad products   I do agree with a few points she makes, like companies need to stop putting active ingredients in clear vials so the sun doesn't break down the properties of the treatment. Also jar packaging is a big no-no for her. I understand that some creams are too thick to be put in a pump, but what about those airless jars that Bosica & Dermadoctor are using? I hate sticking my fingers in jars & the air does break down the active ingredients over time...  Overall though, I don't think I'll be going to her site when I'm researching a new product I want to try.

Exfoliation. Or rather, lack thereof.
So I've finally realized that since I started to get really into makeup a little over a year ago (I'm 27. I'm a little late to the game, here), my skin is not, of course, perfect.   I've managed to deal with my combination skin type for years, and I'm pretty sure the thing I'm lacking is exfoliating. An oily T-zone can be pretty common, but the fact that my nose and chin still decide to peel like I'm an exotic snake shedding my skin is not. (I just made myself go "ew" out loud)   Is there a good exfoliating product that's better for someone that hasn't used them before? Or even preferably for someone with sensitive skin (I'm not necessarily sensitive, I just don't want my face to go raw).   Any recommendations would be fantastic, thanks <3

I used to use chemical sunscreens like from Neutrogena but they burned my eyes so I switched to physical sunscreens.I used the Shiseido for face/body SPF 50 in a blue bottle.

Can someone recommend a sunscreen that won't burn my eyes, isn't drying, doesn't feel greasy and doesn't have that sunscreen smell? It seems like a tall order but I'd appreciate any recommendations.

Products/treatments that genuinely minimize pores?
I've searched high and low for products that will "shrink" the pores on my cheeks after years of irritated skin/acne/benzoyl peroxide treatments/using the wrong products for my skin. Google usually takes me to YouTube reviews, which is full of information... But these days I can't tell which is genuine and which is sponsored.   So, I thought I would ask what has worked for YOU?   I know there is no magical "thing" to make them disappear, but I'd love you to share anything that helped minimize or even just tips to hide them when wearing makeup !   I'm actually looking in to skin resurfacing (I heard this helps?) but it seems so drastic.

Face shaving for women?
I've recently seen a few articles about shaving the peach fuzz off of your cheeks and upper lip and so on, to help you have a more even complexion and to allow your makeup to apply better.  I don't believe in the whole "it'll grow back darker and thicker" thing, and I know that Marilyn Monroe and Elizabeth Taylor did the shaving thing, and that dermaplaning has become popular.   Has anyone tried this or know anyone that has? I have fine peach fuzz over my cheeks, and sometimes it's annoying when I'm trying to go for the flawless makeup look, and I don't think I could handle waxing or threading my cheeks, but if razoring works, then I'm willing to give it a shot.    I also read online that it helps to remove a layer of dead skin, like exfoliating, and can give you a more even complexion.
