That's right. I'm 25 yrs old and all I've ever used on my face is Dove Bar soap. No moisturizer, eye creams, exfoliaters, etc. I'm pretty confused on what products to use and what order to use these products. Do i use: cleanser, face mask, toner, moisturizer? How often do I use a facial scrub? I have large pores on my nose, how do i fix that? I do have my eye on a few things that I want to try out from the website. Some more specifics about my skin 1. I have a oily t zone and eye lids. Rest of my face is normal. 2. Some acne scars on my fore head. Just a few small spots. 3. Faint crows feet 4. I'm having a minor breakout right now on my fore head and a little bit on my temples. It's a little bit red, but skin toned bumps? (I'm African American) Thank you!
I need help finding a new face cleansing product. I have been using Bliss Clog Dissolving Cleansing Milk for at least five years and I love it but it doesn't seem to be available at Sephora anymore. Any suggestions? I am in my early forties and my main concerns are acne, oily ski and anti aging. My skin is still prone to breakouts especially if I use the wrong products.
Urban Decay is coming out with a Smokey Palette slated to hit the market July 8th. Unlike the other palettes this one will have a range of colors to create every smokey eye you want. Here's the link to the story so are you going to buy or no? https://www.yahoo.com/beauty/cue-the-frenzy-theres -a-new-naked-palette-120529402888.html Sorry I didn't see that this was posted in acne. Is that the default catergory??

Hi- I'm curious if you have any advice (products or otherwise) about what to do. I think I may have a scar around my eyebrow from waxing. I only recently started to "really" notice it, but as I look back at pictures (as far back as 2 years ago), I can see it starting to form. It looks like scar tissue to me...faded but noticeable. Any thoughts on how to heel it or at least fade it? I go to a place that uses the soft purple wax and don't ever remember a particular a "burn". I wonder if this is just something that developed over time? It's to the point that it's all I see every time I look in the mirror. It doesn't hurt- it's just more an embarrassment issue. Foundation doesn't really cover it up. Thanks for your advice.
hello beauties .. i have a serious problem with concealers because i have a dry skin! every time i use a concealer under my eyes and i set it with a powder it gets patchy and dry! and i never used a setting powder because i'm afraid that it will make my foundation look dry and cakey ! please help me find the right things for me cause i'm really tired of trying new things and wasting money.
I already have the Filmstar bronze & glow palette but looking into some of her other products. Does anyone have any experiences they would like to share esp with her Light Wonder Foundation, her blush and the Airbrush Flawless Finish Powder? I'm interested in getting these three things but still on the fence about taking the plunge! Please let me know, many BTers opinions have helped me out on products before Thanks in advance!
Hi guys! I've been trying to look for new foundation. I've been using my Tarte Amazonian clay for about 2 years and I wanted to switch it up a bit and try a new foundation. I want like a full and matte coverage. Also, I have very sensitive skin, so it's important for me to know what I am using on my face. I have - very oily skin type - acne help please! Thanks!

Hi guys!

( obviously i am makeup free in these photos to show the scarring/spots etc. )and they look worse with makeup on etc. any advice would be really helpful! thank you
Hellooo! Every summer when I go to put sunscreen on my face on pool or beach days my face breaks out within the hour. Not just little bumps on my face but large break outs that take weeks to go away. I have tried every sunscreen from target and Walgreens and they all have the done the same thing to my face. I have finally decided to splurge on a higher end sunscreen with the hope that my face wont break out for the whole summer. I have oily/combo sensitive acne prone skin if that helps. What are you recommendations for sunscreens? -Fabiola
i've seen this type of question asked more generally, but i wanted to ask it specific to skincare. not only is it interesting to see what has really worked for people, but it'll maybe highlight some products others are interested in trying ! so: what are specific products that would cause you to hyperventilate were you to run out ? mine currently are: cleansers CLINIQUE take the day off cleansing balm (makeup removal) NUDE SKINCARE perfect cleanse omega cleansing jelly (skin cleanser) toners (acids & hydrating) FIRST AID BEAUTY facial radiance pads (AHA) CAUDALIE beauty elixir (moisture) MURAD essential-c toner (moisture) oils and serums CLARINS blue orchid facial oil TATA HARPER nutrient replenishing complex (oil) VICHY aqualia thermal serum (serum for dehydration) moisturizers AVEDA botanical kinetics hydrating face lotion masks (i like to have an arsenal for different purposes) REN glycol lactic radiance renewal mask (resurfacing) OLE HENRIKSEN lemon strip flash peel (resurfacing: hardcore) PETER THOMAS ROTH cucumber mask (hydrating / soothing; great for summer) FIRST AID BEAUTY ultra repair instant oatmeal mask (hydrates /soothes; fantastic for winter) FIRST AID BEAUTY skin rescue purifying mask w/ red clay (deep cleaning) additionally, a couple products that may reach HG status soon, but need more time in my rotation: TATA HARPER replenishing nutrient complex (oil) added ! TATCHA cleansing oil can't believe i'm saying this but: it broke me out ???? or it was unlucky timing, but i'm too scared to keep using it. NUDE SKINCARE miracle mask (exfoliating / brightening)** i love this mask. i don't think it'll be HG though as i generally prefer the REN. they're pretty interchangeable though. i consider it a very close 1st runner up ! CLINIQUE clarifying lotion--the MILD formula (no alcohol / with BHA) to be fair...i think this is a LOT to be considered truly HG. but you guys know i have a lot of steps in my daily routine, and these are tried-and-true loves of mine ! edited 4/1/15
Looking for advice on what order to use my new skincare products. I recently ordered the Ren Resuracing AHA concentrate and the Clinique Acne Solutions all over clearing treatment. After cleansing, which product would I put on first? I feel like putting the Clinique on first makes the most sense but I'm not sure. Does it even matter? Help!
I have been loving this product...especially the blush. I dint have one quite like it in my collection and I have gone Hunter/gatherer on sephora...looking for a blush. Can somebody please help me before I buy 4757493873 blushes looking for one.
I have tried getting more sleep, makeup , creams and I still cant get rid of the puffiness/dark circles especially in pictures. I need a really really good cream. Any suggestions? Price is not an issue, just need one that truly works.
I had previously used a gentle cleanser like Purity Made Simple from Philosophy and On a Clear Day to deal with my skin. I wanted more help with my cystic acne, oily skin and being 41, wanted to address anti-aging. Anything used for the acne dries me out or makes my face almost sore, and anything used for anti-aging adds to my oily skin issues. I decided to try the Resist Advance Kit for Breakouts and Wrinkles from Paula's Choice and have a love/hate relationship with it. The appearance and texture of my skin has improved greatly. The cystic acne is much better. But the one thing I cannot handle is the extra oily skin that has come on. By afternoon my make up is gone. Even though oily skin is an issue for me, I do not have such an issue with it that my make up melts away, especially this bad. I have more issues with clogged pores and blackheads now too, but the cystic acne is smaller, less red and inflamed, heals quicker and the flaky, scaly skin surrounding them is no more. I have tried skipping the daytime moisturizer. Tried limiting the 2% BHA Daily Pore Refining Treatment to once a day rather than twice thinking I was over exfoliating causing extra oil production. Nothing has helped. Is there a skin care regime that someone can point me to?
