If i'm matched 1y06 what color should i buy in hourglass immaculate? It doesn't have an exact match and i don't want to buy the wrong one. i've tried "shell" before and it looked way too yellow. Should I use a primer with this one? Any recs? I have an extremely oily nose/chin but normal skin elsewhere.
Before you start a course of chemotherapy your doctor explains all the common side effects to you, there are the standard ones we've all heard of before including hair loss, nausea and increased risk of infection and then there are the less known ones such as sore nails and taste changes. But changes to skin are not really talked about in much detail. I was warned that my skin would be more sensitive to sunlight and could become dry but I was so preoccupied by my impending baldness that at first I didn't really think about my skin - that soon changed. So how did chemotherapy affect my skin? I found that it made it very sensitive and dry, but a plus point was that I never really got blemishes which was a welcome change for me. The steroids I took turned my face a lovely shade of puce for a few days too (I used make up to help with this and will reveal more in a later post). I quickly found that I had to adapt my skincare routine to suit my now very different skin type. At first I did a lot of Googling, blog reading and general online browsing, then when I had the energy I went to department stores and asked for samples to try. I highly recommend this. It is important you try a product before you buy it and do a patch test because skin reactions can be common during chemotherapy and the last thing you want is an even redder face.

I love the LXMI Crème du Nil Pore-Refining Moisture Veil but I travel a lot and every time this creme leaks out of the container. Does anyone have a suggestion I can try to avoid the leaks? I cannot imagine not using it but it is getting expensive to lose so much product all the time. I wish they would redesign the packaging as it seems this may be an issue. My original order leaked out and had to be replaced with the one I am using now. BTW....this stuff is so good...particularly after a long flight or a late night. I just love what it does for my skin.
I have an issue with closed comedones. It does not look good when I apply makeup and I have been using several things to try to get rid of them. I use the Belif Problem Solutions Cleansing Foam and the Moisture Bomb cream. I also use Paula's Choice Resist BHA and their Skin Recovery Antioxidant serum that has Retinol in it and COSRX AHA. I don't know if there is any product that isn't harsh since my skin is sensitive that you can recommend to get rid of these closed comedones.
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.
Hello! I have very oily skin and enlarged pores. I currently am using the Clinique 3-Step and I have been using it for about 3-4 months. I previously used Dermologica and some other random products. Right now I use the 3 step-in the morning and then at night I use the Clinique City Block Charcoal Clenser in the evening (instead of the 3 Step Clenser) and use my Clarsonic. I also use the Clinque Moisture Surge after using the gel moisterizer and I like the way it does feel. I have stopped using it a few days to see if the moisture surge was causing the extra oil. I am looking for products or regimines, things I can change to make my skin less oily and at least reduce the breakouts. I can start doing something mid-day to cut down the oil, but the breakouts need to stop! haha. Thank you for anyone's help!
I am 27 years old, going on 28 in 2 months. I want to continue with anti-aging and wrinkle-prevention skincare. However, I have oily skin and still get blemishes on my cheekbones and have an oily forehead. Is there a moisturizer that can have the anti-aging and wrinkle-prevention effects without causing excess oil on my skin? Thank you!
Hi! I have very fair skin so any time a pimple goes away (which thankfully isn't often anymore) it leaves a red spot behind. I've tried a number of products but they either break me out or just don't work for me. Any suggestions?
I'm approaching 72. Have been using Origins A perfect world moisturizer but am wondering if I should switch to Origins starting over age erasing moisturizer? Or do you have a recommendation for another product for dry, aging skin?
I have combination skin. I still break out in acne around my chin, especially around my period. I also am very very fair, so will have discoloration from acne for months after. So I have oily patches, but then will get dry patches too. I am a HUGE Sunday Riley fan (Good Genes, Luna). I was wondering if anyone with a similar skin type recommended UFO or Tidal Cream as part of their routine (or both!) Thank you!
I am traveling to Antigua in the new year to meet my boyfriend's family. The weather will be very hot and humid compared to what I am used to. I have oily skin and have had trouble with acne since I was twelve years old. My makeup will always come off after a couple hours. I am looking for recommendations for a primer, foundation, and setting powder that will last in hot and humid temperature even with very oily skin.
