I have really tough skin. I'm 38 with aging mostly oily skin with some small dry patches, some acne and wrinkles/fine lines. I've tried lots of treatments with little to no results (Drunk Elephant TLC Framboos Glycolic Night Serum, Sunday Riley Good Genes, Dr. Gross Alpha Beta Daily Peel, Clinique Acne + Line Correcting Serum, Ole Henriksen's Invigorating Night Gel, retinol serums, etc.). I've used these treatments for at least 3+ months each and mostly nothing. I've used a lot of different moisturizers too. Right now my night routine is: Cleanse - usually Boscia's Thermal Black Cleanser or MakeUp-BreakUp Cool Cleansing Oil if I'm wearing makeup Tone - Pixi Glow Tonic Serums - PTR's AHA/BHA Acne Clearing Gel (just started this) with Sunday Riley's Good Genes on top Moisturizer - Shiseido Ibuki Refining Moisturizer Enriched with a drop of Lipidol Overnight Face Oil Eye Cream - whatever sample I have, right now Lancôme Genifique Yeux Youth Activating Eye Cream My day routine is: Cleanse - Boscia's Thermal Black Cleanser Tone - Thayers Witch Hazel Rose Petal Toner Serums - Oz Naturals Vitamin C Facial Serum, PTR's AHA/BHA Acne Clearing Gel (new) and Hylamide SubQ Anti-Aging Advanced Serum Moisturizer - Murad's Anti-Aging Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 30 PA+++ or Paula's Choice Resist Super-Light Daily Wrinkle Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 30 I wait until each treatment is dry before putting the next one on. My skin is being maintained but I'm looking for something with some real results. I'm not asking for a miracle but it would be nice to find something that actually improves my skin. Any suggestions?
I have so so many clogged pores on my face and I have no idea what to do. Does anyone know how I can get rid of them? I just started a new skincare routine today: 1) Simple Micellar Water 2) Clean & Clear Pore Cleansing Face Wash 3) Neutrogena Alcohol Free Toner 4) Hydrating Serum 5) Moisturizer ---- any thoughts on that?
I have started using Sunday Riley Good Genes in the mornings, but I would also like to try Murad's Sensitive Skin Soothing Serum, Redness Therapy for the redness on my cheeks. I'm wondering if I can use the Good Genes then follow up with the Murad Serum as my moisturizer? My skin is pretty normal I do get oily in my t-zone throughout the day.
Hi, my elder sister has a plan to undergo facelift surgery in Dr. Omar Fouda Neel's clinic in Montreal. The problem is that none of our friends or relatives have undergone one before so we are quite unknown about how the procedure would be like, how long would be the recovery time etc. I wish if I could get her some more useful information regarding facelift surgery. Is there any other procedure that should be considered along with facelift to get a better result? Do you guys have any alternative option to suggest?
Hello all! I've been gone for awhile but I of course severely went through BT withdrawal! So before I post my general question to the group, I need to reference these two recent incidents I experienced.: 1. The Sephora SA doing my makeover suggested I start using night cream for my eyes. Hello!!! I'm only 36 years old, I have never really taken care of my face except for a ever so needed makeup wipe at the end of the day. Her advice was like brick to my face. 2. After getting a recent facial my t-zone was a dry crumply mess. (btw, never happened before) It not only hurt but my face was bright red. So with that being said, I have adopted using the products below per suggestions for others. And it got me to thinking. I would love to know your routines! Please post your morning and/or evening routines with pics if possible. I will heart everyone's first post to this thread so we can hopefully get the discussion going. Can' wait to hear what all of you have to share! My bedtime skincare routine:
Hi I am 33 years old and am looking for a great ant-aging serum that is safe to use throughout pregnancy and breast feeding. I have started to see fine lines, dark spots, and enlarged pores so I need help. Any advice/feedback is greatly appreciated!

Does anyone have any advice on what the best product to help reduce skin redness for sensitive/dry skin that is prone to breakouts? Not to cover but something to help correct the problem. Thus far I have used moisturizers from Fresh, Ren, Nuture Me by Ole Henriksen and every product from Mario Badescu with no luck. I've even used DYI solutions such as Manuka Honey. Everything burns my skin. FYI, I've also cut out dairy and wheat.
Hi girls, so I recently found out i've got acne ( sad face!! ) and i'm 18 19 this year and how found I am limited to what makeup products i can use on my skin. I normally only use Clarins products as they're plant based and my skin lovesss their products! I'm wondering what contour kit, cream and powder would be best for my skin due to being prone to acne...please help answer my question all advice and best products is appreciated! <3 I won't use Anastasia's contour kits due to having heard it can be known to break you out into spots
I've got mild acne and some DEEP acne scars. when the new acne fades it leaves light pink scars for a few weeks but fade with time. I basically want something that will help diminish the deeper scars over time (I know it will take FOREVER and I've looked into laser treatments, but for the next year or so I'm trying exfoliators), will help fade the newer scars faster and will do SOMETHING for the deeper scars, as they're probably impossible to get rid of without some sort of laser or filler treatment. Thoughts?
I am in my 20s and have oily skin. Even though I put a pore control bb cream I still get shiny and oily during the day. Blotting paper barely helps. I use Cetaphil Gentle cleanser and their moisturizing cream along with a Japanese brand toner and it still gets oily. Are there any brands to make my skin smoothe, and matte?
HI there! I'm a G80 in foundation but I'm having trouble finding the correct color for the item Tarte Amazonian clay. I don't know if the color Deep Sand or Deep Honey is the correct color for my skin tone.
I know this question has been asked a lot, but I would love some recent responses as a lot of them on here are old, possibly new(er) products. What self tanners for face for pale-ish skin do you recommend? Not ghostly pale but definitely fair skinned. I have a tendency to break out a lot so no oils. Would prefer spray or wipes maybe?? Anybody have suggestions? Thank you!!!
I am currently using a drugstore Retinol, Neutrogena Anti-Wrinkle Cream for night. I know drugstore retinol is pretty diluted and the percentage is pretty low. I was wondering if anyone knew any Retinol products that I could use to gradually climb to higher percentages when the time comes for me to get a stronger dosage. I am 22 so I have no lines or wrinkles YET! Only trying to PREVENT them. Any thoughts and comments are needed, Thank you!
I'm debating on trying the Clinique Turnaround Radiance Peel set for my cystic acne red hyperpigmentation. I have fair skin that is slightly sensitive, and responds pretty well to salicylic acid. Any advice with this peel/other peels for this issue would be appreciated. Thanks!
