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.

Korean Skincare... Actually Worth It?
I know Korean skincare/makeup is touted a lot on here. And a fair amount of it is REALLY affordable, and of course, tends to be really cute. My question is... what is the actual quality of the products/ingredients like? What would they compare to?   I don't want to buy a bunch of Innissfree face masks or a Tony Moly lipbalm, for example, if they're no better than the cheap ones I can get at a drugstore.   Aside from the "cute" and "unique" factor, I don't really "get" why Korean brands are recommended (not talking about the higher end stuff here). Insight appreciated!

Random Dry Patches on my Face?
The title is pretty self explanatory. I noticed a little less than a week ago that just beside my nose and there is one big dry patch. It's not noticeable, although it is uncomfortable to touch. I also have some dry, flaky skin around the corners of my nose that don't go away no matter how hard I scrub! Any solutions to either of these problems?

Has anyone used Belif eye cream yet?
I love Belif Moisture bomb, so I was wondering if I would love the eye cream as well, and there are no reviews yet for it. I currently use Ahava firming eye cream around my eyes or Algenist, and I like both of them more than anything else I have tried, but I am still curious about Belif.  I hardly ever get to an actual Sephora store (far away), or I would get a sample.  Please share any feedback if you have tried it as far as scent, sensitivity, texture, and effectiveness.  Thank you so much, in advance.

Sebaceous Filaments Problems
So I have been doing "research" and found out that those blackheads I thought i had been dealing with is actually sebaceous filaments.    I know they can't be permanently removed but does anyone know how to lessen appearance?

Small bumps on face
I have these tiny little bumps on either side of my nose just under my eye area and I cannot figure out how to get rid of them. I do cleanse twice a day and exfoliate twice a week. I've used the Kate Sommerville exfoliate and the Peter Thomas Roth peeling gel (they leave my skin feeling extremely soft but the bumps never go away). I know it's not milia 'cause I've had that over my left eye and it looked/felt completely different. These tiny bumps are actually not very noticeable until I wear liquid foundation (and I need to wear foundation because I have a lot of discoloration in other areas of my face).

What's in your arsenal to battle severely dry hands?
So where I live, the snow has been insane, and the weather is so cold that I start to tear up, and then my tears start to freeze. I digress.   I am experiencing my driest and cracked hands ever. For those who have similar issues, or are experiencing the frigid cold, what are your go-to products, and how often do you apply them?   At my disposal, I've currently got: Embryolisse Lait-Creme Concentre Laura Mercier Hand Lotions, in Fresh Fig and Creme de Pistache L'Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream   I apply these whenever my hands feel dry, but I am literally applying another round of lotion every 5-10 minutes, and my hands have remained unmoisturized and chapped. Help! How do you guys tackle chapped hands in the winter?

GlamGlow Supercleanse Reaction
Hi! So, I've been trying a sample of the GlamGlow Supercleanse Daily Clearing Cleanser since I'm in the market for a new cleanser. I have combination/oily/sensitive skin and my chin gets easily congested (I know it's hormonal based and I am taking birth control for it, but it still gets congested). I can get cystic pimples pretty easily there. After using it for 3-4 days at night only, I've been getting a pretty bad reaction to it. My whole face burns, and bumps are appearing on my face with some white heads too. The area around my lips also became super dry. Anyone else have this kind of reaction to it? I've also been trying Thirstycleanse and that hasn't given me any reaction at all, it's quite nice actually.

Need Guidance on Cleanser and Moisturizer
I am 23 with acne-prone, sensitive, easily irritated, combination skin.   My main skin concerns would be my acne, redness and overall skin dullness/roughness. I feel like I have tried every product imaginable, but nothing seems to work. Currently, I am struggling with little red bumps, mainly around my mouth and chin, that don't appear to be acne, but I believe they are from irritation caused by using the wrong products.   For now, I am looking for a better cleanser and moisturizer. I have done my research and would like opinons on the Shiseido ibuki purifying cleanser v. Shiseido ibuki gentle cleanser and any advice on a good moisturizer that will give me a healthy glow, will not irritate my skin and will get rid of these pesky red bumps as well as keep my acne at bay.   Also, does anyone have an opinion on using alcohol-free, fragrance-free witch hazel? I've heard mixed reviews on using witch hazel on your face, but have also seen where it apparently does wonders for your skin.

Acne
I need a top-notch dermatologist.  The two I've seen here have repeatedly ignored my requests for a skin care regimen.  I have had acne since I was a teenager, been on Accutane twice I think between the ages of 18-26.  It worked temporarily then my acne came back and I haven't been able to get rid of it since.  I have acne on my face, behind my ears, scalp, and throat/neck.  Some are the painful kind.  I don't get whiteheads, just mainly nodular.  My skin is t-zone oily and normal in other areas.  I have an oily scalp and oily eyelids.  I have seborrheic dermatitis on my scalp and hairline.  The dermatitis used to affect my forehead and cheeks but thankfully not any more.  Right now it's just my scalp but is under control with a prescription shampoo.  Back to the acne, no topical medications have worked for me.  I'm almost 39 years old and haven't had clear or healthy skin since before puberty.  PLEASE PLEASE help.

I am only 30 and i have not shown any first signs of aging (wrinkles, sagging, bigger pores etc). The cream actually helps to control facial oil production. It moisturizes but not overly. But is it ok to keep using it when i do not have any signs of aging yet? Thank you.

ACNE!!!!!
Hello. I am in 6th grade and I think that I have acne. My mom and sister says that I don't have it I just have a few pimples, but every single time I look in the mirrror, bare faced, my self-esteem lowers. My sister also has acne and she is 17, and my mom had it when she was around my age. They say it's just genetics, and that I'm growing and that all the oil on my skin is what is causing all of these pimples. I try to believe but I can't help but notice all of the other 6th grade girls that are "growing" too, have perfect skin with not 1 flaw. So, I use makeup. Some may think its weird, for a 6th grader to nbe using makeup, but it's help me with my self-esteem. I have tried what seems like every acne-free product in the universe. I have tried Murad, GoodforyouGirls, FAB, Shiseido,Clinique, ELF, and many more. I tried to ask my mom to buy me some things that I read about online, that have good ratings, but she says that once I'm done "growing" I'll be fine. Its quite agrivating. If any of you would help me, give me options that HAVE WORKED, because it seems like there is no cure,   P.S, please give things that are in a 6thgraders, price range.   Thank you!

Accutane
In about 14 days I'll be starting Accutane. My skin is fairly oily now with moderate, stubborn acne on my face, back, and chest. I'm currently using CeraVe products in my skincare (oily face wash, AM and PM moisturizers, occasionally the hydrating face wash). I've researched skincare that I can use to prevent extreme drying but I'm wondering what works best. PS: I'm only a teenager without a job, so the lower the price, the better!
