Hi All! I recently got the Tatcha The Kissu Lip Mask Original which is great but I am feeling like I need a little something extra to help with chapped lips. Any tips on lip care or product recommendations would be greatly appreciated! Thank you 😊

@lexmcneil I recommend you stop tanning, since UV rays can cause a lot of skin damage—including excessive skin texture. It’s safer to use a self-tanner. Also, be sure to use a broad spectrum sunscreen that’s at least SPF 30. There’s no point using anything to reduce skin texture if you don’t also stop the sun from worsening that texture. If you can see a dermatologist, I also recommend doing that. A derm can find out if there’s a deeper root cause of your skin texture. Lots of things can cause it: UV damage, contact dermatitis (could be from your hair products, or perhaps something you use on your hands if you frequently touch the sides of your face; my facial skin hates lavender, for instance, and whenever I use a lavender hand cream and rest my face on my hands, I get a bumpy bad reaction), acne, yeast overgrowth/infection, rosacea, etc. None of us here on BIC can say exactly which of those is happening with your skin, but a dermatologist can. Retinoids (the vitamin A family: retinol, retinaldehyde, tretinoin, adapalene, etc.) can help with skin texture, though a derm might advise you try something else depending on what’s causing your issue. Niacinamide can also help with texture. AHAs (alpha hydroxy acids: glycolic, lactic, mandelic) can as well, depending on the root cause of your issue. If you use any AHA exfoliant, then you absolutely must use sunscreen whenever your skin’s exposed to daylight; AHAs will make your skin more sun-sensitive. Eh, we should all use sunscreen during daylight exposure anyway, all year long, regardless of weather or season.

Do you do your makeup in a certain order? One thing I’ve noticed in my experience is doing my makeup in the exact same order each time. The Rubix cube represents finding new ways to adapt to changes, and appreciate the process, and journey while embracing a destination. I will list my routine order below, and I am going to try and switch the order by one or two steps. I will then post a photo, with the numbers arranged differently. To show the product step changes. Anyone who would like to join is welcome! 🤗 Order Skincare/ PrimerFoundation ConcealerBronzer Highlighter Blush Eyeliner Mascara Lip wear This challenge is for fun!

@makeitup305 read my mind EXACTLY. I’ve been on tretinoin since I was 14, and the LANEIGE Cream Skin Refillable Toner & Moisturizer with Ceramides and Peptides is my RIDE OR DIE. It is SO good for the dryness & irritation, and I LOVE the texture. It’s so thin and nice 😊 Any toners that contain Centella Asiatica would also be a GREAT choice!! Centella has been my hg throughout all of this because is AMAZING for irritation & inflammation. It has soothing properties that makes all my redness dissapear in the morning 💕 my one true love I use the Purito SEOUL Wonder Releaf Centella Serum Unscented and the matching moisteriser. However, there is a toner in that product line that you could enjoy. I’ve also heard good things about Torriden & SKIN1004’s centella toners.

Love, one of the highlighted ingredients of the DE serum is Sodium Hylauronate. That ingredient specifically targets fine lines and wrinkles. That product is designed for aging skin. 🥹 Although there’s nothing wrong with a child using it (as in, nothing to cause irritation and/or damage), it’s still not an appropriate option for individuals aged 10-13 years. Plus, it’s $66 CAD?! That’s 5 hours of working a minimum wage job (here) to afford that. There are many other HA serums that are more appropriate for a tween.

Babes, I mean NO disrespect with this, but, those are not appropriate products for an 11 year old. 🥹 The Glow Recipe Toner has 3% PHA + 2% BHA. It’s meant for uneven skin texture & pores—the target audience is older people. Both Beta Hydroxy Acids (BHA) and Polyhydroxy Acids (PHA) are used for anto aging, as they can boost elasticity and help wrinkles. Young skin doesn’t need these (unless there is another issue happening, like acne.) Children’s skin absorbs these acids more than mature skin, which gives them a higher chance of experiencing irritation. Dermatologists typically deem products with 2% Salycylic Acid to be relatively safe for young skin, but keep in mind that there’s also the 3% PHA. Derms usually say to not go over that initial amount when purchasing an OTC product to deal with acne. Furthermore, Glow Recipe’s entire line is packed with fragrance. This can be very irritating and may cause damage that would take a while to help (if the person has sensitive skin). Also, it is nearly $50 CAD. This person seems like they’re just getting into makeup—I feel like it’d make more sense to get them various products instead. Same thing with the Drunk Elephant Bronzing Drops!! That is an unreasonable amount of money to spend on a singular product for an 11 year old!!! Especially with all the dupes there are.

I feel a part of me die every single time I lose a drop of it 🥹 I remember a TikTok mutual recommending that people put their toners in the bottles of their empty serums once (after cleaning them rlly well first obv.) She said that the dropper applicator made it so much easier to apply & prevented you from losing your toner. I haven’t done it because I don’t feel like it (lol), but maybe that interests you? The idea of removing it from its original packaging makes me feel weird, but at the same time, the toner doesn’t have anything in it that’s sensitive to oxygen or whatever, right? Could be worth a try 🤷

💯 on SPF expiration dates @missjeanie. I tossed two; fortunately they were ones that were not tops on my list, but still. I don’t like having to toss something because it was my fault for getting to it so late. 😔

Thank you @BluePaisley! Powder products can take me a while to use up. Now I know that for the MAC Studio Fix, it’s about a year of usage. I haven’t had another product that I’ve used similarly but I’m interested to see how another powder foundation might compare. Maybe something I’ll add to the pan it! challenge later this year or next year.

Ooouh, Sisley cheeks??!! 😍 I only have a couple of the Sisley cheek products, that pretty one with the Iris? design. As I say that I wonder if I’ve even used it. 🤔 Yeah, I need to be better about hoarding. On the one hand, I bought it and therefore should use it (I don’t buy to collect so I do feel a certain need to use what I buy) but that’s easier said than done. The hoarding is real.
