Q. I need some advice on a new skin care regimen!
Hey guys, so I'm 27 with fair, sensitive, acne prone skin especially hormonal acne. I   am thinking of changing up my skin care routine, BUT I have been using Origins plantscription am with SPF 25 and the night a mins cream at night (both creams are oil free too) for probably 2-3 years now. I just feel like maybe I need something new for my skin, I have been looking at Lancome and some other products, but I just dont know what to go with? obviously I would like a day cream that has SPF in it and im all about anti-aging products it is never too early to start for that. So I need some advice what are the best products to maybe try out that are reasonable or maybe just keep my routine the way it is?

Hello,  I just received some Ole Henriksen products I ordered online, the aloe vera deep cleanser, the grease relief facial water and the grease relief face tonic....is there a difference between the facial water and facial tonic?

Q. SK II Cellumination
SK II's Cellumination line has been discontinued and pulled from the US market. Sephora still carries the cream and lotion from that line which I believe is existing stock waiting to be sold.  But the cellumination Aura Essence is gone, even from department stores. The asian market has it's replacement of with the Genoptics line. Anyone have any ideas when and if Sephora will add Genoptics to their SK II offering?

Q. Dior Capture Totale - Le Serum - did it cause anyone else to break out?

Hi Everyone, For quite some time now I've been trying to find the right products for me! Background about myself: 20 year old with normal/dry sensitive skin, redness,texture, finally seeing some wrinkles, and suffer from breakouts around my period. I need help finding all new products besides cleanser and toner!  I would love to start using serums, eye creams, or anything else.   Another question is when should I begin looking into anti-aging products since i'm only 20?   Thanks!

Q. What is a good product in general for break outs?
I use to have great skin but maybe a year ago I developed a problem with cystic acne and I think it was BC related but I've been long off of that and my face does not break out as bad but I still do get breakouts more than I use to and I have some acne scars. I have combination skin and it is more normal than dry but I do get dry spots occasionally. I'm very on top of my face care so I don't know if my skin has gotten use to my cleanser I use now maybe? I was hoping to see if anyone would recommend a great cleanser or even a lotion? I can't honestly call my skin bad BUT when I break out I do break out. I've looked at the Kate Somerville Eradicate Acne spot treatment with the sulfur in the bottle but read it can dry out your skin but would that possibly be something good to try? Anything to get my skin nice again and I do use a pore minimizer and I do have a Glamglow mask. Both work but I'm hoping for something a little more.

Q. Skin Care.... HELP!!!
  Hello everyone! I keep having the hardest time trying to find a good skin care routine... and good skin care products. Im 19 and have never ever loved my skin.  I'd say I have norman to combo skin (more dry than oily) and I have times when I break out really bad then I don't (back and forth, back and forth), But I've always had at least 1 or more pimples on my face! Once one starts going away, another appears... It's frustrating! I also have terrible black heads on my nose and under my bottom lip area/chin.... and little pumps that aren't pimples but aren't black heads either? <- not really sure what they are exactly or what they're called?? But I always have those on my face also.   Im in need of products that will actually work for my skin!!!! Anyone have any thoughts on Dr.Brandt? Origins? Clinique? Clinical Advanced Skincare? OR any other brands that work for them??? Also, Products that work best?   ---Im a collage student at a makeup school (no, we don't learn anything about skincare..)  so I don't want to get something thats going to cost me 300 or more, I need something that is reasonable.  I know nothing about skincare and need tips!! Right now I am currently between products and trying a few things here and there for a few weeks at a time to see how my skin reacts to the products. I always wash my face before bed & in the morning.... with hot water & a cleanser, then wash it off and use cool water. Then I apply a serum & face cream. I also use a mask once every week.    TIPS PLEASE!!!  Thanks xo.

Q. Troubled Skin - Please Help!
So I just turned seventeen and up until a few months ago I had nearly perfect skin, besides the occasional breakout, but for the last few months my skin has gone literally crazy. I'm probably being a little dramatic but I'm not used to acne and I want to get rid of it! I get hormonal acne every time of the month (which I don't really mind it's usually one or two spots on my chin). But for the first time ever I've broken out on my forehead and cheeks! I have normal-combination skin. 90% of the time it's normal, oily in the summer, dry in the winter. It's not very sensitive though.   I can't go on the pill due to personal reasons and I feel like I've tried everything but nothings worked! I'm eating healthier, working out, and trying not to stress so much (I'm really bad at that). I'm going to Sephora this weekend with a friend and I really want to pick up something for my skin. Any suggestions?    p.s. my breakouts are mild, and usually form white heads overtime but they take ages to go away.

Q. Products that truly work to fade post-acne marks?
My skin is in a rough state after dealing with acne for the past 9 years of my life. I have been on a topical medication for 8 years (benzoyl peroxide 10%, clindamycin phosphate gel) that I apply every night. It keeps my acne under control however I still have acne and am never 100% pimple-free. Because I have had acne for so long and have unfortunately picked nearly every pimple I've had, I have red marks all over my face that make my skin appear 10x worse than it is. I'm considering laser at this point, but would love to hear of any tried and true products that people have used. I'm currently using a gentle exfoliating toner by Pixi, Ole's Truth Serum in the AM (although I've heard vitamin C only fades brown spots/hyperpigmentation and not post-acne marks), First Aid Beauty's Oil-Free Moisturizer, Ole's Aloe Cleanser at night with my Clarisonic, followed by Murad's post-acne lightening serum, then my acne medication and Josie Maran's Light Argan Oil. I have only been using the acne lightening serum for about a week so I am hoping that will start to work eventually.   What products have you tried that have successfully faded your post-acne marks?

Q. Hydration for Eczema Prone Skin
I've lived with severe eczema for my whole life. I can't keep my skin moist and hydrated unless I use Vaseline which causes my skin to look very glossy and greasy. I have used First Aid Beauty hydration cream and other creams/lotion that do not have the glossy look, but my skin still feels dry and tight after applying. Which then causes my skin to wrinkle and peel. All I'm looking for is a way to keep my skin hydrated without using a lotion that looks greasy.    If there is also a way to decrease the sights of eczema scars that would be appreciated.
