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!
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!
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.
Hi. I am a teen and have occasional blemishes. i have tried the murad clarifying cleanser, but i get this colorless bumps on my forehead and dont know what to do. I feel like i tried everything, and not sure what skin regimen to invest in anymore. Please someone tell me what these colorless bumps are and how to get rid of them.
I am allergic to most sunscreens. The ones I am not allergic to are the ones that reflect light but they usually leave a white cast on the skin. Can anyone recommend a sunscreen for extremely sensitive skin that I can use before applying makeup that wont interfere with the color?
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!
I just recently started getting awful forehead acne. Ive been told it could be from wearing my hair on my face. Stopped that, and it still contenues! Any products that could help clear this up? Thanks!
I have dry skin and at night I like to use a moisturizer that is REALLY moisturizing. I have seen replies for questions like mine but those products are not moisturizing enough for me. I would be using this lotion for nighttime along with some acne medication I am using. Thank you for your suggestions!!
Any oily girls like me have experience with this sunscreen? I need a non-comedogenic high SPF sunscreen that won't clog my already-overactive pores. I was looking at this or Sheshido's products. I've tried Boscia and it broke me out. I would like something that goes on smoothly under makeup. Thanks!
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!
As a beauty addict, I have more than my fair share of makeup products..but I've been slacking on my skincare. a lot. At one point, I was just using wipes and cetaphil lotion ( I know, disgusting.) Anyway I've been getting back into my routine though. This is my current routine: -Shiseido Gentle Cleanser -Algenist Hydrating Toner -Clinique Moisturizing Lotion+ But I have questions! What do you use? Serums? Exfoliators? Luna? Any tips or experience is greatly appreciated and I'd love to hear all about y'all skincare routine! (P.S. I am prone to redness on my cheeks and my skin is generally normal/dry but the tip of my nose is white head galore and I have those whiteheads that stick out almost on the sides of my nose) Please let me know what you use to get rid of these suckers!
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?
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
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 am looking for a new night time moisturizer. I have noticed that my skin has become duller, and my skin texture has become more uneven. So I am looking for something to help brighten and help with skin texture. Hoping for some insight on night time treatments, maybe even some kind of serum.... just not sure what to look for.
I just started using the Clarisonic Mia and am interested in seeing what everyone does with theirs. 1. Which Clarisionc do you have? 2. How often do you use it? 3. What products work best for you? Cleanser? Exfoliator? 4. What is your skin type? I hope something like this hasn't already been posted recently.
I have so many small bumps all over my face. I don't know if it's keratosis pilaris or milia or clogged pores I just really want to get rid of them. I've always suffered from acne, and I've come along way, it's just these **bleep** small bumps!
It's getting pretty hot where I live, and I think it's important for me to get a better sunscreen-right now I use a tinted moisturizer with spf 15, but I don't know if that's enough. Are there any drugstore brands of sunscreen that won't have that horrible smell that never goes away? Also, when should I apply it in my makeup routine? (I use a moisturizer, primer, and tinted moisturizer, then a setting powder) Thanks!! ps. I have dry skin-I don't know if that makes any difference with sunscreen. Thank you!
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. My skin has stopped being dry, but it's still oily. It's not as oily as it used to be but I really want to find a way or product(s) that would help my face not be so oily or shiny during the day. Also, I don't wear makeup.
I've been maintaining my complexion with ProActiv which has done wonders for my skin. Recently though, I will get flare ups and my face will still break out with stubborn acne that I can't get rid of for days or weeks using ProActiv and other spot treatments. I was wondering which Kate Somerville product would be best for acne prone/oily skin: The Detox daily cleanser or the Eradikate mark foam-activated treatment?
I've been using BareMinerals BarePro powder foundation for a few weeks now. Unfortunately, it's itchy and makes my skin feel tight. I'm not sure if it's the combination of the products I'm using or the BarePro itself that's irritating my skin but I really love this foundation and want to make it work. 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? Is it the foundation I'm using or the primer?
What should I use for adult acne? I am in my upper 20's and have tried everything, Pro Active, No Zit Sherlock, Derma Doctor and even over the counter brands at target. It's all below my nose, so I'm told it's hormonal. My skins dries easily, but I am just looking for something to clear up my acne!!! Help!
I have really oily skin and I am trying to find products to help balance it and also a foundation that is best for oily skin. I use Make Up Forever Mat Velvet + Mattifying foundation but I do not feel it is really doing much for me. Any Recommendations?
I'm 21 years old and have had oily skin - no doubt in the world that my face is an oil slick. Within the last year I have noticed my skin starting to have dry areas as well as oil patches. I have no idea if this is how my skin has developed or I'm using products that are just making me dry. I have only had a handful on instances in which a product managed to make me dry. Any suggestions on what skin care/ makeup i can use? I'm almost hesitant to completely change into combo products because I'm worried that this is just a weird time for me
I really want to buy a Clarisonic Mia but I'm afraid that it might stimulate the hair on my face to grow thicker. I really don't want my peach fuzz to become more noticeable. I read this online: Topical hair growth is caused by sustained surface irritation to an area. These methods can stimulate the blood supply to an area, bringing more nourishment to the area. This can stimulate hair growth. Has this happened to anyone using the Clarisonic?
My VIB wishlist is as follows: Tata Harper Resurfacing Mask Dennis Gross Universal Daily Peel Dr. Jart Snow Time Clarins Sunscreen Clinique Take the day off Clinique Moisture that matters Origins GinZing Moisturizer Sunday riley #squad goals Drunk elephant lets b clear set Im also looking at Tata Harper Purifying cleanser.
