Best Anti-aging Day Cream with SPF
Hi all I've been looking around for a good anti-aging daytime moisturizer with decent SPF. This is harder to find that I thought! I have pretty normal-ish skin, and am looking for a a non-greasy moisturizer to wear day time under makeup, or over serum (I'm 33, currently using SR Luna and Origins Nightamins at night). I'm looking for SPF 30 or above preferably. The only one I found so far was the Perfect World SPF 25 from Origins, and at first it worked well but after a few weeks it felt like my skin just got used to it and I wasn't seeing the benefits anymore. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks xo

How to get rid of wrinkles and line?
I'm 32 years old and live in Mississauga. I have seen few lines coming and wrinkles under my eyes. I thought of using anti wrinkle cream to get rid of it. I feel very much depressed when everyone asks me if I'm in my 50's, so one of my friends asked me to go for the non-surgical procedure from mclean clinic in my locality ( http://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures /non-surgical/lines-wrinkles/ ). I have just heard about injectable fillers and botox treatment but don't know much about it. I would like to know if I should consider non-surgical procedure or buy good products that help to get rid of it. Also, I would love to get advice on great products or remedies.

Skincare starter kit for 58 yr old mum! :)
Hi all you beautiful ppl,   My mum's gonna visit me next month and I wanted to surprise her with a few skincare bits. She's very low maintenance in terms of her skincare and doesn't do much, which is why I don't want to overwhelm her with a ton of product. I'll share what I have in mind and I do need suggestions on what you think are non-negotiables, esp for that age range.   Skin type: Dry, dehydrated mature skin. Undereye wrinkles, no other wrinkles on face, but some firming action would be great . Neck needs some firming for sure.   I've put my list in spoilers.

Skincare Routine Suggestions - early 30's
Looking for suggestions please. I'm 32 and have never been diligent about skincare. I've always bought whatever face wash was on sale at Walmart and have used Nivea Soft as my moisturizer for years as it's the best drug store option I've found to date and works well for me. I've recently been using Eucerin for very dry skin and it works fine also.    My my skin is a little oily in the T zone with dry patches when I don't exfoliate (St. Ives scrub) and otherwise normal. It is only mildly sensitive on the cheeks and under eye area with a little redness on the cheeks. I get the occasional breakout about one week a month 😑 but nothing major. (By "breakout" I mean a single pimple or maybe two that usually clears up in a few days with no spot treatment and I do get some blackheads around the nose and on the chin.)    Also, I have a tiny bit of uneven texture but I'm not sure what it is because I don't think they are pimples, just some small bumps. They aren't really noticeable unless you get real close and I'm not wearing makeup. I'd like to even out the texture and redness as well as some fine lines around the eyes and larger lines on my forehead from subconscious facial expressions. Lol I'd like to find an affordable oil or serum, face wash, exfoliant, and any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated!   Any ideas for that long, detailed list of wants? Thanks in advance!

In need of a skincare makeover...
Hey guys, I'm to the point where I am about to give up. My face is SUPER sensitive and gets irritated with the littlest things. Every single cleanser I have used has left my face feeling tight and stripped, but then my skin never wants to absorb the lotions that I try to put on. So I feel like my skin is combo, sensitive and dehydrated. This results in constant acne; never cystic acne, but just pimples all over. I'm a senior in HS and it is honestly embarrassing to go out in public. I was looking at the Belif Skincare line, but I'm hoping that someone can help me. Anything is welcome!

What is the best foundation?
I would say i have very normal skin. I usually only break out on my forehead during my period and it is very mild. I am looking for a full coverage foundation because I have very red cheeks that i am not a fan of. A lot of foundations i try samples of either turn flakey, crease under my eyes, or get very oily on my forehead. which foundation would work well with my skin and which should i at least try.   I have tried Makeup Forever HD stick, Clinique chubby, and a sample packet of Marc Jacobs Re(marc)able full coverage.

Flakey dry skin
Hello all!   I've been dealing with a dry flakey face since my late teens (about 5 years). It's centered on my T-zone and upper cheeks. I've tried all kinds of different moisturizers and natural oils, but nothing ever seems to be absorbed. It just seems to sit on my skin. I’ve made diet changes and have been making sure to stay hydrated, but my skin still stays persistently dry. I’m at my wits end, and nothing seems to be working. My skin is fairly sensitive- any suggestions for anything that might help me re-balance my skin’s natural oils? Thanks!

Dry, Sensitive, Blemished, Thirsty Skin
Hi, I'm used to having an oily T zone, with dry cheeks but I've been using pHisoderm from the drugstore for normal to combination skin and it broke me out into a rash really bad. I'm not used to having so many blemishes on my face. And my face is super dry now and tight. Does anyone know of a good face wash for night time and night time  moisturizer that I can use to help me?

Looking for gentle skin-care routine for oily/acne-prone/very-sensitive skin in 20s
My skin is the bane of my existence. I have tried low and top-shelf solutions, all natural, Proactive, Acutane, creative visualization, raw veganism (ewwww) and nothing works. my pimples are small, around my hair and jaw-line. I also have a scattering of little flesh-toned bumps all over my face. My Clairisonic used to take care of those, but it seems it's not effective anymore. My skin is also VERY oily. I drink tons of water, don't smoke, workout regularly, have a relatively healthy diet, etc., and I get plenty of sleep. I do however, have a lot of stress (work 50+ hrs a week, in grad school). I've also started getting little pimples on my neck which never happened before. Currently I'm using the Peter Thomas Roth Cucumber De-Tox cleanser, Proactiv toner and the Shisheido Ibuki moisturizer. It worked for the first few weeks, but now my skin is worse than ever and the moisturizer just feels sticky on my skin.    I need help! It's so expensive to keep trying new products only to have them fail and the Sephora staff always recommends products specially formulated for acne but those harsh ingredients just dry my skin and make it itchy and more prone to breakout.    Any suggestions for a gentle, effective regimen?   Thanks!!!
