@Candacetc The NARS Light Reflecting Advanced Skincare Foundation has skincare benefits and is good for people with dry skin. It also has a pretty good wear time. Now it is 50 dollars so if you feel up to it, you could always get a sample in store and see if you’d deem it worth your money.I also have problems with my t zone getting oily, I usually apply a matte primer only on that area and a hydrating primer everywhere else.

@itzroo I just want to add that sometimes one sided breakouts can be the result of a mindless habit that introduces a virus bacteria or fungus to your skin, such as leaning your face or your hand or hair twirling. I agree you should see a dermatologist or a naturopath to rule out any precancerous lesions, rosacea or allergic reactions (they don’t always appear symmetrical either) With allergies hives can appear, disappear and reappear in different areas. in the meantime a little colour correction can help conceal them if you find them bothersome. blot a little green right over top of the redness and then tap a concealer over top being sure not to rub the green off. What you absolutely do know when you have redness is that you’re dealing with inflammation so you should take steps to lower inflammation in your body.

I would really recommend reaching out to your doctor or dermatologist @jooeellle33. They can direct you to the best items to try and they know your own individual unique skin.You can ask them about brands like Tower 28 or Skinfix, which my sensitive Rosacea prone skin has found really helpful. But just because it worked for me, won't necessarily mean they will work for you.Also anything rich in ceramides has been very helpful, if your researching things to use and try I would recommend it for sure.

I woke up today with pink eyes. So I tried not to use any skincare products but use hydrocortisone and antibacterial ointment cuz I thought it might be due to the eczema since I was diagnosed long time ago but it never happened to the top of my faces including forehead, eyes and noses. I remembered I used the eye cream as a sample I received yesterday and I used it while I was in the passenger seat in a car due to the severe dryness and tightness. Maybe it could be the reason for that or eczema or sth else for my situation. 😞

@TiffnyMarie Which moisturizers have you already tried? Without knowing your skin type/behavior (besides acne-prone): a good basic moisturizer is Vanicream Moisturizing Lotion: it’s lightweight yet effective and has a very simple ingredient list. Whichever moisturizer you use, apply it while your skin’s damp to seal in hydration instead of dryness. If your skin’s fully dried down by the time you reach the moisturizer step, just tap or spray a little water on your face before applying moisturizer.

@Ellaontop If you’ve really tried “everything,” then the only thing I can recommend is to see a dermatologist or your primary care doctor for diagnosis and treatment options. I’d recommend that even if you hadn’t already tried the usual acne go-tos, especially for acne that’s deep under the skin surface. You might have cystic acne. That type of acne doesn’t respond well to most over-the-counter acne ingredients (salicylic acid, for instance). But you’ll need a derm or other doc to diagnosis that for you.
