Hi, I'm more frustrates by my facial skin. In recent years, I can not find "MIRACLE" cream which helps my skin was dehydrated through the day. In fact, I always feel (specially to temperature change, inside and outside) of sebum on my skin and a feeling of discomfort, tightness especially the knowledge level forehead and cheeks. I know my skin need water and hydration. So I try Caudalie products (serum ,day cream) serum is a very good, my skin drank immediately the product, but the cream is nothing changed . After i try the gel-cream Fresh but I would have put in three times a day. So I go with Josie Argan Serum .. for now I do not see any difference but that is less than a month . For the cream i was advised to try Ole Henriksen Vitamin Plus, but my skin beginning more to tug and dry me Help please
My mom has some dark brown patches on her forehead and one on her cheek. I'm not sure if they are age or sun spots. Her skin looks good for her age. Very few wrinkles, no acne etc My mom only wears a bit of powder and lipstick. Washes her face with soap and water (not into makeup, skin care). She would like a product to help diminish these spots. Any rec's? Thanks!
Hello, I've been reading on the ewg skin deep report 2014 that vitamin A exposed to sunlight damages skin cells, however I've noticed some cosmetic brands including sunscreens still contain retinyl palmitate. I'm curious to know if anyone has come across any recent skincare research. I like to stay updated, though I don't always browse the research sites.
Hello: I can't decide which moisturizer is better: Lancome Bienfait or Bobbi Brown Hydrating face cream. I have oily skin mainly in the t-zone area with breakouts pretty often. I'm 25 years old and I've used Lancome for several years but I've heard many wonderful things about the Bobbi Brown one so I wasn't sure which one was better. If any of you ladies have used these I'd appreciate your opinions!
Hi everyone! I purchased a Clarisonic about 2 years ago. It has the normal brush head. I initially used it once a day for 3 months then backed off to 3 or 4 times a week for 4 months. I never noticed any improvement or change in my skin. If anything, I thought my acne was slightly worse and my skin felt rougher. Basically, it has sat unused in my bathroom for a year. Now that there are lots of new brush heads available, I am wondering if I should try another brush head and give the Clarisonic a second chance I have oily-combination skin. My chin/forehead is oily and I typically have 1-2 whiteheads especially around that time of the month. My temples and nose are dry. I am 30, and have the beginning of some tiny brown sun spots that are fading nicely with OH truth serum. I also have some unevenness to my skin tone. Any advice on what brush head to try? Or do you suggest I give up on it? I would like to know others' experience with it as well! TIA!
I'm moving from California to Japan~ Hot and humid!! I have clear skin with no breakouts normally (maybe once a blue moon) so i'm looking for advice to keep my skin clear there as well!! Let me know what I should take with me.
I bought the Ole Lemon Strip Flash Peel to help with textured skin and to even out skin tone. I guess I'm not as happy with it as I thought I would be. Any recommendations on what I could try? I had a deluxe sample of the Algenist Genius bi-phase peel and really liked it, but it's so expensive. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated!
For a few weeks or so, I've noticed that I have an area on my nose that is red, dry, and slightly bumpy. Thinking it was just dry skin, I started using ExfoliKate to remove the dead, dry skin, which worked and made the area smoother. However, the redness remained. After trying the moisturizer route (a drop or two of Josie Maran's Argan Oil) and not seeing much difference, I took a more medicinal method and used a Hydrocortisone cream, which helped with the redness. After using it for a few days, the redness went away. I continued to exfoliate the area once a week for a couple weeks, only to have it come back again. I have not changed my make up routine or implemented any new products prior to this starting. It appeared seemingly out of the blue. Does anyone have any ideas or suggestions as to what this is, would could be causing it, or what to do to get it to go away for good? Thanks so much.
I'm only 16 and have noticed in the past year or so that I have very visible purple and blue veins under my eyes and very very dark purple/blue tones under my eyes due to that area of my skin being very thin and delicate as well as the fact that I'm a bit pale. I'm so insecure about myself as it makes me look so awful and tired and the veins are quite unsightly. Because of this I feel like no one will ever love me and I'm terrified of going without makeup because I look like a freak. In fact, I never used to notice visible veins under me eyes (maybe I just wasn't looking) and I think maybe the skin has got thinner because I used a lot of concealer in that area? I don't know- all I want to do is get rid of my horrible under eye circles and visible veins but I don't know how. I know you could probably use cosmetic surgery but I really don't want to and my dad got really angry and upset at the possibility. Please help! Is there anyway I could permanently get rid of them for good? I would be so much happier if I did't have to hide my natural skin away under tons of makeup.
Hello girls, I would like to have your advice. I want to buy a night cream but I have honestly no idea of which one I should choose. I want something that hydrate my skin. Thanks for sharing your thoughts. Cheers J
I am starting this post for my mom because she is not into makeup and wouldn't even know how to start a post.. So, I am doing it for her! My mom is struggling with lines on her neck, in other words, tree trunks, as they're called. She just bought a neck cream for almost $90 and has been using it for a long time and no change what so ever. She sent it back in hopes of finding something else. But she is doubtful her lines will go away because they are hereditary. I have them to but not as bad. My mom does not have any wrinkles either. I am wondering if there is some neck cream that could help my mom's condition.. I'm not sure if anything will help because it seems to be hereditary, but I would like some advice or information about it because I feel bad for my mom! So please help if you can, she will really appreciate it! XOXOXO
I just started using my MIA with the gel cleanser that was provided in the kit and out of the blue I've got a breakout. 6 pimples around my chin and alongside my nose. I very rarely get even one pimple (am 52 with t-zone oily skin), so this is highly unusual. What could have caused this?!? Is the gel cleanser too rich for my skin? I should mention too, I have seborrhea dermatitis around my nose and a little on my lower cheek, so avoided using the gel cleanser those areas because I have special medication for that. Any advice?
Hi guys!! so this is the first time this has happened to me, but I have had an allergic reaction to La Mer Liquid SPF 30 which makes me really sad After one day of applying it on my face and being out in the hot Portland sun (95 degrees ) my face *mainly cheeks and chin* is now dry like sandpaper and itchy. Although the itching has subsided a bit after Day 2, I was told by my mom to lather on Aquaphor for the dryness. This leads me to question if I'm allergic to a specific ingredient in it or just chemical SPF's in general?! If any of you have experienced this and have any insights please let me know! I haven't used foundation in the past 3 days since it's happened.
Hi! I'm looking for advice about an inexpensive bronzer maybe. I normally wear glasses and have gotten a little burnt from the sun this summer. I have recently started wearing contacts, and it's obvious on my skin that I'm burnt due to the whiteness around my eyes and on my nose. My skin tones are different. Would bronzer help me? Thanks!
I have a good amount of acne/sun damage scars. Any suggestions on a good product to have them disappear over time? My cousin is currently getting laser done to get them removed, and that is an absolute last resort for me...(basically I REALLY don't want that to happen) What products do you recommend/how long does it usually take for you to see results?
Sorry, this is kind of gross, just as a warning. Yesterday I had a particularly bad migraine in the evening, which eventually caused me to vomit (again, sorry). This caused a ton of broken capillaries all over my face. Is there anything that I can do or any products that I can use to speed recovery? My face looks absolutely awful. =(
I'm pregnant (very early) and I adore Sunday Riley products and I was wondering which products from their line (or other lines with similar products) are safe to use during pregnancy? My skin is combination, some fine lines, and occasional breakouts. Currently I use Juno oil (for the amazing glow), the Ceramic cleanser, and the Start Over eye cream. Thank you!
I need to get a good exfoliator I've tried several over the years and have not found one I love yet. I'm thinking about trying this one out, but would like to hear from a few people that have tried it first. Or hint hint Sephora see it in the sample section as it is not in my local stores yet.
Hi everyone, this past year I've noticed more and more of these tiny bumps appearing around my eyes. I have pretty dry skin, so I am used to texture on my face, but these bumps are different and they appear only under my eyes, eyelids, and on the sides of my nose as well. They might be milia, but I am unsure because they are not white. I don't know how to get rid of them-please help! I've tried exfoliating around my nose, which didn't really help, and I didn't think I should exfoliate under the eye. Sorry about the pictures, it was hard to capture them on camera, but they are pretty bad in real life. Please help! Thanks in advance!
Hi everyone! I have been searching forever for a product that will reduce my pore size I have around my nose and on my cheeks. I also have red, blotchy skin which could be sun damage but it is just red and never seems to go away. My skin type is combination and usually is sensitive as well.... I'm Oily on my t zone and dry around my eyes, chin, hairline. I use proactive + as my skin regime and it has gotten rid of my pesky acne I had to always deal with but I am still left with large pores and redness! Any products to recommend to add to my skin regime? Help!!!!! I just want more even, brighter, healthier looking skin!
Happy Monday! I've amped up my skin care lately and have been recently looking to add to it. Sephora has a bunch of great skin care sets and its so hard to chose one, does anyone have any recommendations? Overall I'm just looking to improve my skin, brighten, smooth texture, get rid of some redness (I think it just comes from being very fair) and diminish pores. I don't care if its a mask, peel or serum I'm open to try anything! Some things I'm considering are the Dr. Gross alpha and beta peel, the Korres rose peel, the Lancôme visionnaire set or the drunk elephant glycolic serum. My routine for now is, at night wash with purity face wash, tone with Mario badescu special cucumber lotion, mix Josie maran argan oil with my Cerave pm facial lotion and then spot treat. In the morning I clean my face with micellar water and use my day moisturizer with SPF and then use an extra face SPF. I do masks once or twice a week. My skin is combo id say, slightly oily in my tzone with some slight dryness on my cheeks that comes and goes. Thanks in advance for the help
I am very concerned about marks on my legs and arms that I have created by picking at in-grown hairs. Most of the spots are the size of a pinky nail. The marks are slightly raised because of a very thin layer of scar tissue. The coloration of the marks vary from dark tan, they are sometimes lighter than my skin and sometimes pinkish-purple depending on the age of the scar. In total all of these spots or no more than a year old. Please, please, please advise me to products if any that will help resolve this issue. I would with all of my heart appreciate any input. This is my last resort before going to a dermatologist. Thank you so much for your time,
For the past few months, I've noticed that when I step out of the shower, my checks feel really "tight" and when I pat around on my forehead and nose, it feels dry. So I use moisturizer to add back some hydration (but the tight feeling never goes away no matter how much moisturizer i add to my cheeks) and apply makeup and not even two hours later I'm shiny everywhere and my foundation looks cakey! I don't know if this means that my skin's dehydrated or combo or oily or what. I'd love if I could get some feedback, I want to fix this problem once and for all! Product recommendations (drugstore or high-end) would be greatly appreciated too; thank you so much!!
Hi, I have hypmelanosis on my forearms (white spots against olive complexion) and need to know what is the best concealer for forearms. I'm so embarrassed by these. Sick of hiding them and or explaining what they are. Thanks!
