What is the best moisturizer/skin care routine for sensitive, combination skin? My face randomly breaks out in hives and gets red, dry patches and previous products I have used have made this worse. Other parts of my face like my nose get extremely oily though so I'm not sure what products to use. Please help!!
I got a sample of the Tata's Resurfacing Mask in my play box this month. Used it and had an allergic reaction of hives all over my face (that are still here hours later and progressively got worse.) I do not have sensitive skin. I have never had an allergic reaction to anything in my life. My skin is fairly well balanced. Has anyone else had this problem?
Recently I've been having an issue where my eyes will suddenly start burning and watering ferociously. (Seriously. I look like I'm bawling.) Over the last couple of weeks I think I've made the connection between the burning/watering and using facial sunscreen. It started at my daughter's track meet after I applied my gold standard Neutrogena sunscreen. I initially assumed I had applied it too close to my eyes because I used this product often over previous summers. But then it happened again a few days later when I used Coola's Setting Spray. Then again when I tried Murad Invisiblur. If I go without sunscreen it doesn't happen. But, what doesn't make sense is that the irritation doesn't just happen shortly after application either. I can be at Target 8 hours later and the burning and watering will start as I'm walking through the parking lot. (Thank heaven it was in the parking lot. Anyone who saw me probably just thought I spent too much lol!) Thoughts? Suggestion? I'm very fair and can't go without sunscreen over the summer!
Hey everyone! So I'm in desperate need for some holy grail product recommendations of ALL kinds! Face washes, serums, moisturizers, masks, toners, ANYTHING YOU GOT! Plot twist: They need to be for oily/combination skin! Thanks!
I would consider myself to have oily skin, but at the same time it feels SO dry and tight - with or without makeup! I think my skin is trying to compensate the lack of moisture with producing more oil? (Even though I drink plenty fluids throughout the day...). So, I thought maybe investing in an overnight mask in place of my night cream. I don't know if using an overnight mask every night will clog my pores, but I am out of ideas!!! Any advice/product recommendations are greatly appreciated! Thanks
Hello, I'm 26 years old, I have a kinda mix skin, a little more oily in the T zone... I recently heard that at this age, the skin little by little stops producing collagen, so I wanted to prevent eye's wrinkles..and also face's...but my skin its very delicate too, some creams or lotions kind of burn me or produce me acne...so I really don't know what can I use...(I'm also sometimes following my derma doctor treatment for some pimples and that, he forbid me to consume vitamin B or complex B ) I hope you can help me to the wrinkle and oilyskin issue.
So I need major help with my pores. I have tried skincare products, makeup products, and even different skin treatments (micro derm/ laser) and nothing will combat my pores. They are either clogged, expanded, and just look like holes. I really need help.
Hi, I am 20 years old and I don't wear makeup. However, I am starting to take care of my skin! I noticed that my pores - around my nose and my chin - have been really big and visible. I use pore strips every week but it doesn't seem to minimize my pores. Any cheap & afforable product or ways to help minimize pores? Thanks!
I use Origins charcoal mask, and I love it. I can see that it's working because the stuff is sticking out of my pores after I wash it off. My question is - how do I remove all those whiteheads that are trying to get out after using this awesome mask? I don't want to just put product on top of it...any suggestions? Thanks!
Hello all! I'm on the hunt for a cooling face spray that I can use with/without makeup (so it doesn't necessarily have to be a makeup setting one, I already have one that I like for that purpose). I have moderate to severe rosacea so I am looking for something I can spritz on during the day when I'm getting a flare-up, after exercising, or just any point during the day I'm getting a little red that will give me a cooling sensation and that will actually help the problem a bit. I have used the Evian spray bottles, but I am wondering if there is something a little more 'medicated' if that's the word, that will help fix the problem besides just water. I also will be flying at least once a week for this next year, so I'm also looking for something I can spritz on during my flights to stay hydrated! Thank you!
I Any recommendations for puffy red/black under eye circles? I have tried numerous products, i'm almost at the point of getting some injections to rid myself of this....even when I wear makeup they still bleed through! Once I over slept and couldn't do my makeup and someone thought I got punched in the face (seriously) im desperate...
I'm looking for a sunscreen that won't break me out and doesn't leave me with a ghastly white pallor. I typically wear a tinted moisturizer or bb/cc cream...I keep switching, looking for the perfect one... and while they usually do have sunscreen built in, I need a proper sunscreen to layer underneath when I know I won't be inside most of the day. I have combination skin, can get a little oily in the t zone, and I find that a lot of sunscreens (and moisturizers for that matter) make me break out, either rapidly in little whiteheads or after a few days with big nasty deep pimples. I've been using the Shiseido Urban Environment 42 spf and it's ok but I'm nearing the end of the bottle and ready to try something else. I know, this is the million dollar question, I'm looking for the thing everyone wants. What's your best sunscreen recommendation?
I turned 39 at the end of January. I've always had very large pores. I feel like they're even more noticeable these days. I've also feel like my facial skin is rough, on my cheeks, chin & nose. Not exactly dry, or flaky. More like sandpaper rough. It feels a little like my big pores are constantly pushing out blackheads. I want to just scrape my nail along the roughest spots. I know better than to do that. I use a Clarisonic Smart Profile, currently with the Deep Pore brush head, every day. I was using Arbonne's Re9 facial line, which worked great up until about 6 months ago. For Christmas, I got both Drunk Elephant value sets to try them out & see if that line would fix any problems. No change, at all. Except for a couple of spots being rougher, if I use the Night Serum every day. I use a few different masks. All of the GlamGlow ones, mostly. I try to do at least one a week, if not two. I need some advice on what else I could possibly try. I'm hoping to not have to spend a ton of money, but know good skin care costs a fair amount. Thanks in advance.
I do like my skin care routine I have now and it limits my breakouts. Just wondering if anyone has gone above and gotten any treatments done or any thoughts on them. I know this is a very open ended question, but just seeing what others do. I am oily/combination.
So as the seasons change my skin always throws a wobbly, to make it worse now I have flu! My lips are dry and cracked despite using a thick layer of FAB lip therapy 4 or 5 times a day, my nose is raw from wiping and my skin is so dry. I feel bad enough cause I can't hear, breath etc... but the feeling of crud all over my fave is the worst. Any ideas for recovery products? Skin softening masks etc?
Hello beauties, Years ago, during my teen years, I worked as a lifeguard at a swimming pool. Ever since that experience, unfortunately, I've had an issue with fungus on my toenails (one foot only, oddly enough). If I knew how contagious this was, I would have walked around with flipflops instead of barefoot. My podiatrist prescribed an oral antibiotic, but after treatment, the fungus reappeared. Do any of you know of anything topical that I can apply to help get rid of the fungus once and for all? I'm a very healthy and clean individual, so I'm frustrated to be dealing with such a nasty thing and would be ever so grateful for any advice/recommendations. Thanks so much in advance!
Hey ladies, I've been using the Klairs C serum for the last three months, pretty religiously and it's been amazing. However, this morning I noticed a little yellow spot inside the pipette that disposes the serum. It's too large to enter or exit the pipette so I'm fairly certain that it's a fungal growth. I tried getting a picture but it's too small and the pipette glass is too reflective for a helpful image. However, like I said, I've only had the serum and been using it for 3 months. The serum has a shelf life of 12 months from opening the bottle. Has this happened to anyone else? I purchased the serum from sokoglam in late November. Also, what do you guys think? Is it contaminated?
I'm 30, and had my first baby in October. I woke up one morning and tried to remove leftover mascara under one eye only to discover it was a "dark circle"! It's small, but looks so much like smudged make up that it's borderline trashy! What product will help help to keep it from growing? The baby sleeps through the night now, so lack of sleep won't be contributing to it anymore.
Hi! Looks like my favorite neck cream is out of stock I was using Ole Henricksen and loved it. I tried it because I started getting a texture on my neck that I didn't like...this smoothed it out considerably and made my skin so soft. I have oily skin so something that absorbs quickly and isn't too heavy would be great. The reviews just confuse me. I don't want to spend a small fortune either. Thanks in advance for your help!
I have two issues that have been bothering me lately... one is my dark hereditary under eye circles, and the other is large pores that appear like they are filled with blackheads all the time. I have decided I want to try the Giorgio Armani Master Corrector.. should I use the pink (shade 1) or orange (2) for my circles which can be blueish but mostly are just brownish? Secondly, you can probably see in the picture that I have enlarged pores all the way up towards my under eyes and on the part of my nose that is showing. I don't believe theres any way to shrink pores... but is there something I should add to my skincare routine? I'm 24 years old with dry skin, and currently use Cerave Face Wash, Clinique Clarifying Lotion 2, a liquid BHA 2% exfoliator at night, paula's choice benzoyl peroxide treatment as needed for acne, and moisturize with Clinique Dramatically Different Lotion + at night, and use Clinique Moisture Surge Intense in the morning.
