@Preppy677 A few questions for you: Are you looking for skincare or makeup products? Is your skin acne-prone? Do you have any skin issues or goals, besides not wanting things to break you out? Examples: excessively dry and flaky skin, hyperpigmentation (dark marks/patches), etc. What’s your budget/price cap? What is your current skincare routine (brands + product names)? Your answers will help us make recommendations. 🙂 Quick note about breakouts: SpoilerBreakouts happen for different reasons, including:- True acne (clogged pores)- Milia (keratin trapped under skin)- Folliculitis (infected hair follicles)- Pityrosporum folliculitis (aka “fungal acne,” yeast overgrowth in hair follicles)Could also be your skin reacting badly to something in a product that touches your face. This includes hand creams: my face hates all forms of lavender, and if I rest my face on my hand while wearing a hand cream containing lavender, I’ll get an angry red rash on my face. Or it could be a skin condition that mimics acne, like rosacea. These are things a board certified dermatologist or primary care doctor should diagnose for you. Knowing the root cause of your breakouts will help you avoid products that can’t treat them.

Knowing the root cause of your breakouts will help you avoid products that can’t treat them. The lip mask question is easier for me to answer right now. The most occlusive (water loss preventing) topical skincare ingredient is petrolatum. I always apply a petrolatum-based balm to my damp lips. My favorite is Aquaphor Ointment—not the version specifically marketed as lip balm or the “rescue” stick, just the plain ol’ ointment that comes in jars and tubes. If your skin’s sensitive to lanolin, avoid Aquaphor and consider CeraVe Healing Ointment instead. Vaseline also works, of course. The trick is to make sure your lips are damp (with water, not saliva) before you apply a balm.

Hi @jemchestor! I’d love to help if I can. First, I have a few follow up questions. What serum are you using? On the Sephora, you can use # to tag the exact one. Start with # and start typing the name. It’ll pop up eventually from the list. Also, which moisturizer are you using from CeraVe? I believe they have a few options depending on where you live. Sadly, the # trick only works with Sephora products. Also, use @ to tag someone when replying. Otherwise, they might miss your reply. (Sephora’s not the most user-friendly app)

Hi,Ive used Chanel Vitalumiere foundation for years. Have tried all major sephora & Nordstrom brands for dry skin that are supposed to be dewy or glowy. Nothing compares. Ive even tried to change serums and primers to get these other foundations to work. Just checking if perhaps Ive overlooked a foundation. Please let me know if anyone has found something comparable.

@Lilyr982 I’m sorry you’re going through some irritation. @Ispend2much6‘s suggestion of hydrocortisone cream might help. You can get low dose versions over the counter at your local pharmacy. Use it sparingly as it can potentially thin out the skin wherever you apply it. If you find it helpful, consult with your doctor about what it might have been and how to deal with it in the future. Keep these photos and let them know what you tried. Other products that might help are Tower 28 Beauty Mini SOS Daily Rescue Facial Spray 1 oz/ 30 mL The Ordinary Azelaic Acid 10% Suspension Brightening Cream Both target redness and might help with the inflammation you’re experiencing. One last option at least for dealing with symptoms is Blistex lip medix. It’s meant for lips but its cooling sensation might help bring you a little relief. If it doesn’t, just keep it as a nice lip balm. I hope you find relief soon!

@notevenelene If you have dry skin you’re better off layering thinner serums than using a thicker cream. Thicker creams are great in the winter when the air is very dry to create a skin barrier but lighter products tend to absorb better. LANEIGE Mini Water Bank Blue Hyaluronic Cream Moisturizer .67 oz/ 20 mL belif The True Cream Aqua Bomb .84 oz / 25 mL Also, try applying your moisturizer ten minutes before applying makeup. If any is still sitting on your skin after that, blot it off before beginning your makeup to ensure you makeup doesn’t slide around. Apply as thin a layer of foundation as you can get away with and then set with a very light dusting of finishing powder. basically you want to get the powder on your brush and then tap it off as much as possible and then dust your face lightly.

While Glow Recipe's Dew Drops have gained popularity for their illuminating effect, it's important to remember that skincare products can work differently for each individual. In your case, it's possible that the product may not be suitable for your dry and sensitive skin type. The formulation of the product, including its ingredients and texture, can play a role in how it interacts with different skin types.https://www.roofersofarlington.com/

Hi @angie5090. @Westcoasty has given some great advice so far, so I only have a few small additions. Tower 28 Beauty Mini SOS Daily Rescue Facial Spray 1 oz/ 30 mL helps with my eczema, especially redness and itchiness. It’s also anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory, so it can potentially help with break outs too. Most other acne products can be drying, so spot treatments would be better than trying to attack your entire face. Finally, check your current routine for comedogenic (pore-clogging/pimple-inducing) ingredients. If there are any, pull them out of your routine and see if there’s a non-comedogenic alternative that you can use. And lastly, it doesn’t hurt to see your doctor. If the acne persists, even after making some changes, it could be caused by something else entirely. I hope this helps and I hope you find relief soon!
