Q. Best product for acne scars?
Hi all!  I've been browsing the forum and found many suggestions for acne scar treatments.  So I was wondering what the best product is for acne scars?  I don't want a spot treatment or a peel, but an overall face serum/treatment.  But I don't want a face lightening product (I don't want to lighten my whole face/complexion).    Also, can I use these acne scar treatments in conjunction with another serum (such as an anti-aging serum)?  Thanks ahead of time for your advice/suggestions/answers!

Q. Anyone have experience/advice with vegan acne?
I've been cutting out meat for a while, and recently went full vegan and now my skin is freaking out. I've never really had that much acne to begin with, just usually around my period. But now my face is covered. Does anyone have experience with this? I'm trying to figure out if this something I need to ride out or change my whole skincare regimen...   any advice is greatly appreciated!

Q. SPF Suggestions for someone who is sun-sensitive, sometimes wears foundation and has normal and fair skin
Hi! I've been struggling to find a sunscreen for my face to use regularly in order to protect my already vulnerable skin. I have Lupus, so my face especially is sensitive and really needs consistent UV protection. I don't always wear foundation, but for when I do, I'd like something that works well under my other makeup. I'm very fair, (I use Y205 in the MUFE HD Foundation) so I don't care that much about a white cast. It'd be even more of a plus if someone could suggest a product I could touch up my UV protection with over my makeup that isn't the supergoop setting spray (tried it, didn't like it). My skin is normal, but will get oily around my T-zone occasionally.

Q. sunscreen for extremely sensitive skin

Q. Skincare help!
Hello, I was wondering if anyone had some skincare suggestions. I am fairly new to the world of skincare and I really want to work towards more radiant skin. I have sensitive and combination skin. I also have some acne problems, but those aren't my main priority at the moment. I was looking into some of Sephora Collection's cleansers and was wondering how those are. Also, how is the Urban Decay Hot Springs Hydrating Gel and would it work alone as a moisturizer? If you have any suggestions or tips, I would really appreciate the help! Thank you!

Q. Makeup for Accutane users?
Hi everyone! I will be starting Accutane treatment this fall for acne in my T-zone, and I will need a new daily makeup routine to deal with dry, flaky skin. I'm very, very self conscious without makeup, so going fresh-faced probably won't be an option. I have very sensitive, very pale skin, and I'm worried that my usual makeup will look weird and fake if my skin is flaking. It would be amazing if y'all could help me choose some products for daily use! Thanks! This is what makeup I wear on a daily basis: -primer -foundation -concealer -powder -blush -highlighter -bronzer -nude eyeshadow -eyeliner (pencil) -mascara -lip gloss So if y'all could help me find moisturizing products that won't look conspicuous with dry skin, that would be amazing! Oh, and one last thing: my Sephora+Pantone Color ID is 1R02! Thanks so much!

Q. Oily, acne prone skin since quitting birth control. Skin regimen suggestions?
Hello! I have always had very oily skin (I can soak up 2 oil sheets and usually go for a 3rd by mid-day). I was on birth control for 10 years and recently went off of the pill. During the time I was on the pill I always used the Clinique for combination skin regimen with cleanser, toner, and moisturizer twice a day because I had occasional acne.   Since going off of the pill my acne has increased to the point where makeup isn't doing the job. It's definitely worse when I'm on my period, but generally I don't have a day where I don't have any acne. Right now I have cystic acne.   I tried the Murad acne solutions for 3 months and didn't see a difference. I recently quit that and started using Aveda, so right now my morning and evening regimen is just the Aveda foaming cleanser and their acne pads, along with the Clinique Moisture Surge, but no difference. I also use Origins Super Spot Remover.   Could someone recommend some better products that may help to clear my acne for good and to keep my oily skin at bay?

Q. Looking for an eye cream to go with Dr. Dennis Gross's Ferulic+Retinol Triple Correction Eye Serum
I recieved Dr. Dennis Gross's new eye serum today and I love it. The only problem is its not quite moisturizing enough so i deffinately need a cream with it. i possted a question earlier but the suggestions i was getting were eye creams that i really had no interest in or had tried before. i called the nearest sephora and a woman told me to try shiseido benefiance (but i thought that was just for wrinkles) i've tried so many eye creams over the past year and a half that i really dont want to make another return. the main problems around my eyes are: Hydration/Dryness, Puffiness, Dark Circles(which are not always this dark and some creams do help...if only i could remeber which they were!!!)  and a few fine lines a little crows feet ( maybee some firmness). but keep in mind i will be wearing dr dennis gross,s skincare ferulic+retinol triple corection eye serum with the cream. i just want something thats going to make dr gross's eye serum even better( or atleast attemt to find it), and i'm absolutely not a skincare expert...but any ideas or suggestions are more than welcome. i will stop rambling now...thanks in advance kt

Q. Under Eye Bumps, NOT milia
For as long as I can remember, I've had these tiny bumps that gather around the inner corner of my eye and along my dark circles. I really, really hate them! They kind of look like chicken skin, but they don't really feel bumpy or anything. I've seen pictures of milia, and that is definitely not what I have. These little bumps don't ever go away and they never move. Some people say that they've started to notice this chicken skin under their eyes as they aged, but I'm a Sophomore and I've had this problem my whole life! I've done a little research, and so far all of the fixes have been really complicated and confusing. Please give me a solution! I like to take good care of my skin, but I'd much rather just buy a lotion or something than see a dermatologist. Thanks for all your help!

I used to have dry patches and oily skin, but I've switched to using Belif The True Cream Aqua Bomb, May Coop Raw Sauce, Son & Park Beauty Water, and I use St Ives Blemish Control Apricot Scrub as a cleanser.

Q. BarePro and Itching?

Here's my morning make up/skin care routine. - Cleanse with FAB's pure cleanser (morning and night) - Tone with Jurlique's rosewater spray (morning and night) - Moisturize with L'Octaine light moisturizer (morning and night) - Prime with BareMineral's original primer - Buff on BarePro - Buff on BareMineral's original Mineral Veil - Finish with Urban Decay's chill setting spray   What do y'all think?
