SOS: My skin area around my lips are super dry!!
I have never experienced this before but my skin is in big trouble! I have dry skin and that's nothing new and I have never had much problems with that as long as I follow my skincare routine. But in these four months, my skin has been feeling extra dry. At first, I thought it was probably because I moved to a colder and drier place and my skin needs to adjust. My skin feels better now; however, the skin area around my lips are still extremely dry and flaky and I do not know why. I tried every product that I think might help but nothing has changed. Please if you have any idea what is going on, or anything that you think might make my skin feel better, please let me know. Thank you very much!!

What can i do about my dry skin?
hi!! <3 guys i really, really want to wear foundation. I never get to wear it because my skin is dry. I've tried exfoliators, lotions, anything you can suggest ive tried. and nothing. When i put my foundation on it doesnt look blended into my skin. you can see flakyness and you can still see my imperfections. I go on youtube and see all these beautiful gurus and how pretty and natural their foundations look and i want to look the same. I think i would be the happiest person alive if someone can help me out. Thanksssss

Blackhead Clearing Cleanser/Mask
Hi, guys! So, I'm in need of a mask or cleanser that will help clear out blackheads or minimize them. I have them pretty bad on my nose and I get a few on my cheeks near my nose. My skin is normal, not oily, not dry. It's also not very sensitive.  I've only got one mask that actually pulls the blackheads out, and it's Glamglow. The only problem is if I use two times in a row, the mask doesn't work the third time and I have to try something else. After using other masks, it works again two times and then I have to switch again. One other mask that helps a little is the Peter Thomas Roth Sulfur Cooling Masque. It helps but not that much. Other than that nothing else really has any effect on them, though. I've tried Exfolikate, but it dried out my skin and left the sides of my nose raw and my skin isn't even sensitive. It also had no effect on my blackheads. I've tried the Boscia Luminzing Black Mask and the Purifying Pore Strips and neither of those do anything but pull off dead skin.  Sorry that's so long Thank you so much in advance!

Clinique Moisture Surge Overnight Mask: questions!
I want to get a hydrating mask and I have my eyes on the Clunique moisture surge hydrating mask. It has good reviews, comes in a tube and fairly wallet friendy (plus, I want the little clinique CC cream that will come with the current gwp). Have anyone of you guys tried it? What did you think of it? And another question is, how often do you use it? In some reviews, it's beening used as a night cream, did that work for you or do you put this on after your normal routine?      Thanks!

Self Tanners for a First-Timer
So since I left high school (and had to spend summers working inside instead of outside swimming), I haven't been tan. At first I was okay, I do like my pale skin. But I'm really starting to miss that glowing, tan skin I used to have during the summer. Problem is, I don't have the time, patience, or location to go tan outside, and I don't want to go to a salon and lay in a tube. So I've decided to try out self tanner.   Problem is, I'm not really sure where to start. I know a lot of people recommend St Tropez, and I am interested in that. I'm just a little nervous about dropping around $40 for something I haven't ever done before. I've also read good things about Tarte's Brazilliance, and I like that I can use that on the face.   So, does anyone have any recommendations for a good self tanner to try? Are there any good tanners that have travel size versions that will actually cover my entire body? Are there any general tips I should know before I apply self tanner for the first time? Thanks everyone!

Clinique Acne Solutions Line
I have oily skin along with some acne. I've been using the Clinique 3 Step Introductory Kit For Oilier Skins for a couple of months now. It hasn't cleared up my skin but has seem to control my oil just a tad. I'm considering trying Clinique's Acne Solutions line, probably the Clear Skin System Starter Kit. My main problem is chin acne along with uneven skin tone and a few stray pimples. Does anyone know if the Acne Solutions Line will help or if there is a different brand I should try.

L'Occitane Ultra Soft Cream (Zesty Lime)
I am a HUGE fan of citrus and fruity scents. I don't care for the addition of florals or musks to anchor them in my lotion. I recently received the zesty lime Ultra Soft Cream and I'm in LOVE! Sniffing it in the container doesn't do it justice. The scent is much more obvious after application. Anyone else tried this one? I hope they keep it around for a long time.

How can I even out my discolored skin? + Concealer, please stay PUT after I apply blush
Hello, ladies (and possible gents)!   So, I'm wondering how can I even out my skin tone. I have blotchy, discolored skin - lighter in some areas than others, and even after putting foundation and powder on, you can still tell that the color is a bit uneven.   It also makes my blush appear reeeally blotchy and uneven and that bothers me to no end. Is there some sort of trick for this??   Also, for those of you who have breakouts and/or acne scarring on your cheeks, how do you conceal the area without rubbing the concealer off when putting on blush and highlighter, etc.? This doesn't happen when I conceal other parts of my face, but I think it may be due to the fact that my scars are so dark.

Biology, skincare or retinol experts, please help!
Ok, so I may or may not be panicking a little but I was putting on PTR retinol PM serum today and discovered red dots on the dropper. I tried wiping it with a kleenex (sprayed with alcohol to sanitize) and the red dots are INSIDE the dropper and I only use it right after I wash my hand, so I don't think it's from my skin contact? I could be wrong, it could be harmless, but it's pretty noticeable and I'm creeped out. Any ladies using PTR retinol PM? or have any idea what it is? does it have anything to do with retinol??? I just noticed it after I put the serum on. Not happy T.T

Are Makeup Remover Wipes Enough?
As part of my skin care resolution this year I've been making every effort to clean my face at night before bed.  I thought I was doing good by using face cleansing wipes which I follow with skincare products.  I use my Clarisonic in the morning while I shower and then of course SPF moisturizer and makeup.  I was reading an article in a magazine lately that mentioned makeup wipes as the "lazy girl's" method that should only reserved for those nights when you are too tired to do anything else.  Should I be doing a better job at night cleansing my face? What works for y'all?

calamine lotion for acne and redness
Just wanted to let everyone know that I have been using calamine lotion on my face after I cleanse and tone nightly for about 4 months now. My skin's redness has greatly decreased and it acts like a spot treatment as well. My face is softer, smaller pores, smoother. I got the idea because I had tried Kate Somerville's Eradikate and thought it was too pricey and calamine lotion looks the same lol.   Check it out It's about $9 for a bottle that will last you months. I bought mine in December and still have it. I use about a tsp daily so it will last forever.

skin flaking grey
So I wear aloe vera gel on my face after I cleanse and tone.The last two times I applied my bb cream on top of it, it started to flake. There were grey eraser shaving like flakes on my face. I wasn't sure if it was because my bb cream was quite old, so I tried a new one, but same thing.   It's weird because it goes on smooth and then as I rub it in my face and blend it ends up flaking grey.   Does that mean the face moisturizer isn't good or should I exfoliate more?

glycolic acid alternative
My sister swears by glycolic acid aka AHA (from my understanding they are the same). She recommends that ingredient based on the fact it is anti-aging but most importantly that it chemically exfoliates. She is against gritty exfoliants. BUT I live in FLORIDA and am an outdoors kind of girl. I feel I cannot use glycolic acid because even with sunblock I still get burn and get red! I've had to return products for this reason.  What ingredient(s) should I look to as alternatives?
