@KatieBT , @candacebt , Please check into mcakes account, she is getting a message that she is banned and doesn't think she did anything to deserve it (she reached out to me because she can't post on BT). Thanks so much and have a great beautiful day!
I've had cystic acne for a couple years and fortunately was acquainted with isotretinoin via my derm. Luckily I've been acne free (barring the occasional micro-zit every now and then) but even 2 years later, I still have lingering acne marks on my cheeks. (I'm reluctant to call them acne scars since they do not indent my skin - they just leave behind dark pigmentation...anyway!) What are some products/procedures/medications has anyone tried to fade/get rid of pesky marks? btw right when I my time with iso, my derm said the marks would fade in a year but it's been way over that and no new acne has showed up in those areas....
For as long as I can remember, I've had these tiny bumps that gather around the inner corner of my eye and along my dark circles. I really, really hate them! They kind of look like chicken skin, but they don't really feel bumpy or anything. I've seen pictures of milia, and that is definitely not what I have. These little bumps don't ever go away and they never move. Some people say that they've started to notice this chicken skin under their eyes as they aged, but I'm a Sophomore and I've had this problem my whole life! I've done a little research, and so far all of the fixes have been really complicated and confusing. Please give me a solution! I like to take good care of my skin, but I'd much rather just buy a lotion or something than see a dermatologist. Thanks for all your help!
I'm in my early 30's and have decided to stop using my drugstore moisturizer and switch to an anti-aging skincare line (eye cream and daily moisturizer and/or serum). I want one that is FREE OF PARABENS AND PHTHALATES. My skin is normal and i have no brown spots or major wrinkles but i want to start using something before I start getting wrinkles. I have been researching Perricone MD and FRESH but have read many reviews that perricone MD causes alot of rashes and that Fresh dries out skin (probably because Glycerin is one of the first ingredients) Any thoughts? I have also been looking at DRUNK ELEPHANT Shaba Complex™ Eye Serum, Dr Dennis Gross Skincare Triple Correction Eye Serum, OLE HENRIKSEN Truth Serum® Vitamin C Anti-Aging Collagen Booster and CAUDALIE Premier Cru The Eye Cream . Thoughts? Any suggestions on other brands? They don;t all have to be from the same brand...could be one brand of eye cream and another brand for the serum, etc. Oh and im currently breast feeding so cant use anything with retinol right now but am open to suggestions to use once im done. Please help with any advice!

I have two piercings on my nose and I have recently been getting very dry around that area. I put foundation on that are because my skin is red there. I take my nose rings out at clean that area daily. I just peeled dead skin off that area tonight. Is there anything I can do to help it or any product that will help?

Hey Skincare lovers! I finally have my acne settled down, but I have a multitude of red marks left behind, my fear is that using brightening products will affect my freckles. I am someone who loves her freckles and tries to accentuate them. Is this true or just some crazy myth? Are there any effective products to help lighten these red spots? Any advice helps Thank you!!
Often people ask for recommendations on a skincare routine or for specific products/combinations. This might be a place to share your everyday skincare, both AM and PM. A skincare "what are you wearing" as it were. Hope this is useful. *Age - 40 Skin type - oily/combination Current skin condition - quite dehydrated (winter/indoor heating)* 01/17/16 - AM skincare in the order I used 1. Nude Jelly cleanser (love) 2. Pixi Glow tonic (5% glycolic toner - love) 3. Omorovicza Queen of Hungary Spritz (sample) 4. Radical Skincare Youth Infusion serum - hydrating and anti-ageing (new to me. Testing) 5. Bobbi Brown Hydrating Eye Cream (like) 6. Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine cream (really like as an AM moisturizer) I will try to post PM skincare tonight so the post can be comprehensive. General comments - Okay skin. Apparently the age between 38-42 is a transformational time in hormones (dehydrated skin/spots), so I am more aware of how my skin performs/reacts . My skincare definitely has more "actives" now than before.
I have oily skin not crazy oily but it can get pretty oily at times. I have adult acne, not sever or anything but i do have mild to medium breakouts I don't want to just hide the pimples or bumps I want to know how to get rid of them so any advice would be very helpful and appreciated. Also is there a spray or something I should be putting on my face before I apply makeup to avoid breakouts? Than ks!
thoughts on farmacy? i have combination skin that's sometimes oily and sometimes dry and was wondering if this is a good brand to use. I need skin care products that aren't too harsh on my skin and can really make it feel and look good. would be nice if it wasn't acne prone too.
Hey Beauties, Right now I have combo skin (normal sometimes oily t-zone and dry skin on the cheeks) and some redness. I'm looking for a cleanser (currently using Neutrogena but I had too switch to ultra gentle, and I think it's drying out my skin!) A new toner, a face mist (currently using the one from tarte but I'm not sure If it's enough for my skin), a moisturizer (i'm using renewed hope in a jar, Which I love in the summer but I don't think it's enough for the winter) and an eyecreme (i use clinique pep start but it's not enough for my under eye and it doesn't really do anything for the shadows under my eyes). So please tell me your favorites........ Doesn't have to be all high-end stuff, if you can recommend some things from the drugstore that would be great too. I love to mix it up! Thank you
So recently I have notice that I have some fine lines appearing on my forehead lately. Usually my skin is normal/combination. It can get really dry during the winter but oily in the summer. These fine lines are really bugging me out lately and I just don't know if I should be using an anti-aging product or something else... like a exfoliator. I was curious to know if anybody else was having a similar situation and what product there were using to treat there problem area. Any recommendations would help. Thanks.
Can you please advise me on how to prevent my mascara & eyeliner from smudging. I always use an under eye moisturizer and I'm thinking that maybe that is contributing to the smudging. Living in Louisiana with all this humidity doesn't help either. I have tried numerous brands and nothing seems to be foolproof. I have also tried dusting powder under my eyes to set the products but the powder gets in the fine lines under my eyes. Help please.
I was thinking we should have an "official" NUDE Skincare thread, in case something comes out of this new NUDE story that is happening lately. ( And even if not. ) So we can follow it all here. There are some threads, but those are more just questions and inquiries about NUDE stuff. It would be easier to have all things NUDE at one place, so we can all share news, updates, those possible new products, and anything NUDE here. This is an announcement on Beautycounter about NUDE Skincare: "It is with great excitement that we announce Counter Brands, LLC, parent company of Beautycounter, has acquired the worldwide assets of NUDE Skin Care, Inc. and NUDE Brands, Ltd. founded by Ali Hewson, the wife of musician and social activist, Bono. As a result of this deal, and their genuine interest in our products and mission, Bono will join the company as an investor and Ms. Hewson will join the Board of Directors of Counter Brands, LLC. Similar to our partnership with Target, this validation from such respected public figures will lead to increased brand awareness and client base. We are thrilled to have them join our team. The synergy between our two companies – from mission to ingredient selection process – makes NUDE a logical and compelling addition to our growing brand portfolio. We believe that incredible things are possible for our business and our unwavering advocacy work in D.C. For the foreseeable future, the Beautycounter and NUDE lines will exist as they do today." They also said: "“We will continue to sell through their existing channels of distribution,” Renfrew said of Nude. “The idea is to grow the channels of distribution as well as the product line as a whole,” she said." Also: "NUDE products are currently available in the US on Sephora.com, across Europe in Space.NK stores and online, in Australia in Mecca stores and Mecca.com." Response from Sephora's CS ( 6/30/2016 ): "The Nude Skin care line has been highly anticipated with our clients, and we can certainly appreciate your interest! At this time, some of the NUDE products are limited edition and will be on our site as supplies last, while other products are on our site to stay! We suggest staying tuned to Sephora's promotional emails, as new product launches are frequently announced via email. Additionally, keep checking back on our website under the Quick Link "Just Arrived"." If you have any news, please feel free to share them here. If you have questions, post them here, and hopefully someone will have answers. Or we can all "investigate" together and try to find out what's cooking.
Hi all! I am 28 and an RN. I recently changed departments and now work in the operating room, (No windows, dry/cold air). As a result, my skin has started having more breakouts and uneven color. I have been blessed with relatively good skin (combination I think), and with the exception of a few breakouts around my menstrual cycle I have had to do very little to keep clear skin. As a result, I know NOTHING about a skin care regimen. I know at this point I should start thinking about anti aging products but have no idea where to start. Any suggestions for an AM/PM routine that won't cost more than my mortgage would be appreciated!
I purchased the Bobbi Brown Face Base yesterday after hearing RAVE reviews. Today, I tried it and put my foundation directly on top after letting it set on my face with no additional primer. By lunch, the foundation had broken up quite severely and redness was most definitely on display! Should I try it as a 2-in-1 with a different foundation or add another primer on top?
I just want to say THANK YOU SO MUCH to Sephora and Sol de Janeiro for sending me the original Brazilian Bum Bum Cream and the new Acai Body Power Cream au gratis! I have never tried the Bum Bum Cream but have heard amazing things, and am so excited to have the chance to try the new version as the same time. They both smell quite nice! The Bum Bum Cream is slightly tropical but in no way overpowering, and the Acai Body has a fresh, almost pine, sweet forest scent. Both are in no way greasy. I think these will make a nice addition to my body care collection!
I have been using obagi gel cleanser for 3 years and it's a good cleanser however I still have breakouts, blackheads and oily skin. I also use retin a so I do not like cleansers with active ingredients. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
