Hi, my elder sister has a plan to undergo facelift surgery in Dr. Omar Fouda Neel's clinic in Montreal. The problem is that none of our friends or relatives have undergone one before so we are quite unknown about how the procedure would be like, how long would be the recovery time etc. I wish if I could get her some more useful information regarding facelift surgery. Is there any other procedure that should be considered along with facelift to get a better result? Do you guys have any alternative option to suggest?
SK II's Cellumination line has been discontinued and pulled from the US market. Sephora still carries the cream and lotion from that line which I believe is existing stock waiting to be sold. But the cellumination Aura Essence is gone, even from department stores. The asian market has it's replacement of with the Genoptics line. Anyone have any ideas when and if Sephora will add Genoptics to their SK II offering?
Hello all! I've been gone for awhile but I of course severely went through BT withdrawal! So before I post my general question to the group, I need to reference these two recent incidents I experienced.: 1. The Sephora SA doing my makeover suggested I start using night cream for my eyes. Hello!!! I'm only 36 years old, I have never really taken care of my face except for a ever so needed makeup wipe at the end of the day. Her advice was like brick to my face. 2. After getting a recent facial my t-zone was a dry crumply mess. (btw, never happened before) It not only hurt but my face was bright red. So with that being said, I have adopted using the products below per suggestions for others. And it got me to thinking. I would love to know your routines! Please post your morning and/or evening routines with pics if possible. I will heart everyone's first post to this thread so we can hopefully get the discussion going. Can' wait to hear what all of you have to share! My bedtime skincare routine:
Hi I am 33 years old and am looking for a great ant-aging serum that is safe to use throughout pregnancy and breast feeding. I have started to see fine lines, dark spots, and enlarged pores so I need help. Any advice/feedback is greatly appreciated!

Does anyone have any advice on what the best product to help reduce skin redness for sensitive/dry skin that is prone to breakouts? Not to cover but something to help correct the problem. Thus far I have used moisturizers from Fresh, Ren, Nuture Me by Ole Henriksen and every product from Mario Badescu with no luck. I've even used DYI solutions such as Manuka Honey. Everything burns my skin. FYI, I've also cut out dairy and wheat.
Hi girls, so I recently found out i've got acne ( sad face!! ) and i'm 18 19 this year and how found I am limited to what makeup products i can use on my skin. I normally only use Clarins products as they're plant based and my skin lovesss their products! I'm wondering what contour kit, cream and powder would be best for my skin due to being prone to acne...please help answer my question all advice and best products is appreciated! <3 I won't use Anastasia's contour kits due to having heard it can be known to break you out into spots
I've got mild acne and some DEEP acne scars. when the new acne fades it leaves light pink scars for a few weeks but fade with time. I basically want something that will help diminish the deeper scars over time (I know it will take FOREVER and I've looked into laser treatments, but for the next year or so I'm trying exfoliators), will help fade the newer scars faster and will do SOMETHING for the deeper scars, as they're probably impossible to get rid of without some sort of laser or filler treatment. Thoughts?
I am in my 20s and have oily skin. Even though I put a pore control bb cream I still get shiny and oily during the day. Blotting paper barely helps. I use Cetaphil Gentle cleanser and their moisturizing cream along with a Japanese brand toner and it still gets oily. Are there any brands to make my skin smoothe, and matte?
HI there! I'm a G80 in foundation but I'm having trouble finding the correct color for the item Tarte Amazonian clay. I don't know if the color Deep Sand or Deep Honey is the correct color for my skin tone.
I know this question has been asked a lot, but I would love some recent responses as a lot of them on here are old, possibly new(er) products. What self tanners for face for pale-ish skin do you recommend? Not ghostly pale but definitely fair skinned. I have a tendency to break out a lot so no oils. Would prefer spray or wipes maybe?? Anybody have suggestions? Thank you!!!
I am currently using a drugstore Retinol, Neutrogena Anti-Wrinkle Cream for night. I know drugstore retinol is pretty diluted and the percentage is pretty low. I was wondering if anyone knew any Retinol products that I could use to gradually climb to higher percentages when the time comes for me to get a stronger dosage. I am 22 so I have no lines or wrinkles YET! Only trying to PREVENT them. Any thoughts and comments are needed, Thank you!
I am a sunless tanner and have been for years but, I recently within the last year have developed a severe allergy to Dihydroxyacetone (DHA). I was a big St. Tropez fan but, cannot use it anymore without developing a horrible itchy/bumpy rash. I have even tried other brands thinking maybe it was just the St Tropez but, I've gotten the reaction with everything that I've tried. Does anyone know of a good Dihydroxyacetone (DHA) free sunless tanner? Help! I'm pale and desperate for a little sun(less!)tan!
I'm debating on trying the Clinique Turnaround Radiance Peel set for my cystic acne red hyperpigmentation. I have fair skin that is slightly sensitive, and responds pretty well to salicylic acid. Any advice with this peel/other peels for this issue would be appreciated. Thanks!
I've been dealing with a particularly stubborn patch of eczema on my eyelid since the end of January. Nothing would hold any moisture in this area. On a whim I decided to apply a bit of the Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask (in clear) to my eyelid. The next morning the patch felt smoother and wasn't itchy anymore. After 3 days of applying twice daily, the skin on my eyelid felt normal again. I thought maybe it was cured, but the patch returned after I stopped using mask for three days. Now I'm back to using it twice daily, and again my eyelid is clear of eczema. So I guess it's not a cure, but it's definitely a somewhat unconventional but effective treatment!
Hi! My skin is dry but oily on my lower forehead. I have a few acne spots and a lot of dry patches below my eyebrows, on the upper half of my chin and on my lower cheeks. This is what my routine is now. I use cetaphil to wash my face with a Clarisonic and then I use the neutrogena hydro boost gel creme. I then use a beauty blender to apply either the Too Faced Born this way Foundation or the IT cosmetics cc creme, and apply a Mac setting powder. when I take my makeup off at night I will sometimes put on Vitamin E creme or Aquaphor on my dry patches to help them go away but it doesn't do much. Any suggestions?
