I had some pretty bad acne the past 3-4 months which prior to that I usually had pretty clear skin. It was just on my jawline and now that it's gone i'm left with scarring. Are there any products like face masks, or whatever that actually will help clear the scarring or am I pretty much screwed unless I get some kind of laser treatment or something?
Hi! I am in my upper 30's and just moved down South where there is stronger and longer hours of sun. I have very fair skin and have recently begun focusing on my crows feet. I have been looking for an antiaging, anti wrinkle moisturizer that has sun protection. I just purchased Shisiedo but saw it has to be reapplied every 2 hours. Is there anything that is light enough for everyday, fights aging, and will protect my face all day? (Barring of course swimming or sweating). Any advice would be welcome!
I have very oily skin in my t zone (my nose and forehead) but every where else is normal. I start shining from oil after about two hours. I want to stay matte all day. I am acne prone (not terribly so but I'm sure the excess oil doesn't help). I do have sensitive skin so anything that's very strong will burn. Any suggestions?
Hello! I am in desperate need of a new moisturizer. I used to use the bare minerals moisturizer, but since they have changed their formula, my skin has felt more oily than usual (especially my forehead). I have found that gel-based moisturizers don't work for my skin at all and I have recently been using the moisturizing bomb from belif, but am not facing the same issue. Are there any moisturizers you guys would recommend trying? My skin is pretty normal in general. As it gets colder it get feel a little dry around my cheeks and it usually only feels oily if I've been lazy and haven't washed my face in a couple of days.
I'm 18 and have dealt with acne since I was 11 and I've tried proactive and neutrogena and both have broken me out worse. I'm currently using clean&clear but I have not notice a difference in my skin. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance! XOXO, Z
I'm looking for a lightweight serum to layer on underneath my tinted moisturizer, something that will add just a touch more hydration and make the tinted moisturizer go on smoothly. Preferably oil free, so the moisturizer doesn't slide off. Any suggestions?
So, my mom is allergic to all fragrances. She's looking for a natural eyeliner/pencil that she can use to highlight her lower lash line. I've looked at Clinique but I cant find anything nude. She has a warm complexion and is pretty fair. She also seems to be opposed to shimmery products... any advice??? Thanks!
Can someone recommend me skincare brands that suits Dry Skin I'd really appreciate it also if any of you can recommend me a good face wash/toner/ serum/ eye cream/moisturizer for dry skin/ really dry especially in the Fall and Winter times and my makeup would not stay long and become flaky dry..
Hi! I'm looking for a daily cleanser. I don't wear makeup so not looking for something that focuses on removing makeup. I have a scrub I use 3 times a week to exfoliate, but am lacking a daily face wash. 21 and have combination skin. I get the occasional big spot but mainly small bumps under my skin - which I think is congestion. But it means the texture of my skin isn't smooth all over. I recently bough Sunday Riley ceramic slip but haven't noticed an improvement in my skin
I have this bumpy red itchy rash on my right cheek that has fluctuated in severity, but remained, since June. I last posted about it here in June, when it was certainly not as bad. I of course have an appointment with a dermatologist, but I have had to wait months. I am so uncomfortable that I figured I would ask for suggestions from you all. I am 24 years old, have never had issues with my skin, and have always been comfortable going without makeup (until now). Here are the things I have ruled out: clogged pores, acne, allergies. The rash does not respond to cortisone cream or allergy medications, like Benadryl. It doesn't even stop the itching. I have taken my skincare down to the essentials and my standby products, Cerave Hydrating Cleanser and Clinique DD Lotion. So I do not attribute it to product usage. I have also been unable to wear SPF. It seems I am allergic to all of them. I was using Elta MD UV Clear SPF 46, but was attributing irritation to it, so I discontinued use for 8 weeks, but the rash persisted. Just to confirm that I am allergic to the product, I wore it again yesterday, and today I am very itchy and the rash looks more red and irritated. HOWEVER, I do NOT think this product is the culprit, as the irritation persisted when I stopped using it for two months. what gives!!!!
hi my name is lily and my skin is a mess. I have super dry skin but am also incredibly acne prone. I don't have cystic acne but more of black heads and the occasional big bump. I really need some thing that is going to help my dryness and my acne. I currently use Clinique liquid mild face soap followed by neutrogena alcohol free toner, then Estée Lauder advanced nightwear repair serum and the lowest strength tretonoin on the market. This combo is ok but I still feel like there is something better out there that could help me! my morning routine is the same cleanser followed by the Clinique even better sunscreen/moisturizer. I would really appreciate any and all rreccomendations!!!!
I'm thinking of adding a serum at night before I apply my Sunday Riley Luna Oil. I'm about to be 37 so anything that is anti-aging or could help even out the redness I have on my cheeks is something I would be interested in. My skin is combination/oily in my t-zone. In the mornings I have started alternating between the SR Good Genes and the DE Firma-C. Followed up my Murad's Mattifying Moisturizer and a sample I have of Algenist's Complete Eye Renewal Balm. Thanks in advance!
I have very oily skin and have struggled a lot with my acne. My makeup will never stay on and will usually be gone within 2-3 hours. I'm looking for a foundation that will give me a full coverage for my acne and will also be very long-lasting even through heat and humidity.
Hey so I've been really into trying to incorporate different products into my routine, but Its really confusing to understand which order you're supposed to use them in. At the moment, I only use a cleanser and exfoliator but would like to add brightening products into my night time routine. I see a lot of things for toners, emulsifiers, and moisturizers; Is there a general order for these things to be put on? I usually wash and exfoliate my face at night, but I'm not even sure if some of these things are more for the day... Basically, what are these other things exactly, and after your face is clean and free of extra make up and cell debris, what order should you be using them in?
Hi there! Looking for some recommendations for my Mum. She is in her late sixties and is looking for a great skincare routine. Especially seeking recommendations for: -moisturizing -with SPF -minimizing/slowing future wrinkles I have recommended Josie Maran daily argan moisturize (which I use and love!) but keen to see if there are any other suggestions out there. She currently uses Ole Henriksen vitamin C moisturizer. Thx in advance
A few years ago, I had an abscessed tooth which was bad enough, but after that was taken care of, there was what looks like a little pouch under my eye and on top of my cheekbone. It's about an inch long and looks a little like an undereye bag, but it's in the wrong place. Nothing I do makes it go away, which is my first choice. And even makeup doesn't cover it well, which I would settle for. Any suggestions?
Hi all! what's the best way to combat everyday oil? I've heard all the basic things, like loose powders and such, but is there a product (like a moisturizer or something?) that's going to help set my makeup at keep my face nice and matte all day? I don't think I can overstate how much oil my face is producing on the regular it's smearing my foundation thanks! edit: I use aczone in the morning and the eucerin daily moisturizer and at night I use aczone, tazorac, and then either the clarins serum or aveeno night cream
