RE: Live Chat with Kate Somerville

Hey Kate! I have really bad hyper pigmentation and acne scars, I feel like I do everything but they still are not going away. What do you reccomend

Re: RE: Live Chat with Kate Somerville

@Karishhh You need a retinol product in your life! It turns over skin cells super fast to help with skin texture and pigmentation. Our Kate Somerville DermalQuench® +Retinol Advanced Resurfacing Treatment 2.5 oz is gentle yet effective and can be used every night to help improve your skin tone. 

 

I'd also recommend a good exfoliator, like our KATE SOMERVILLE - ExfoliKate® Intensive Exfoliating Treatment for 2 times a week. This will help exfoliate the top layer of dead skin cells and allow the retinol product to work even better!

RE: Live Chat with Kate Somerville

I have some light spots on my face and I’m wondering what they are and what I can do to help even out my complexion

Re: RE: Live Chat with Kate Somerville

@Clarissa12345 I recommend lightly exfoliating for just 1 minute with a scrub like our KATE SOMERVILLE - ExfoliKate® Intensive Exfoliating Treatment to help even out skin tone. If they start to get a lot lighter, I would then recommend seeing your dermatologist.

RE: Live Chat with Kate Somerville

What do you recommend for little pimple-like bumps all over the forehead?

Re: RE: Live Chat with Kate Somerville

@Oliviamae14 Make sure you are using KATE SOMERVILLE - ExfoliKate® Intensive Exfoliating Treatment 2x p/week. This is essential for unclogging the pores and turning over new healthy skin cells.

what can I do for my sweaty face? I am not oily, my face and scalp sweat a lot. What can I use to control this? few foundations stay all day, no matter what skin care I use.

Also sometimes I get acne cyst,What do you think i can do? Please any advice,Thank you so much for your time,I love your products,and they have already helped me so much.

Re: RE: Re: Live Chat with Kate Somerville

@Ghislenne So happy to hear you love so many of my products! I came out with our new Kate Somerville EradiKate® Salicylic Acid Acne Treatment 1 oz/ 30 mL for people with similar skin problems to yours. It's an overnight acne treatment that not only helps clear your blemishes, but it contains retinol, so it turns over your skin cells faster and improves textural issues. This product is amazing for more both mild and severe acne conditions!

Hello, what a wonderful opportunity. I have received prod...

Hello, what a wonderful opportunity. I have received products of yours in my monthly Sephora Play Box. Being a natural red head with fair skin, and also being 50+ mature skin, my problem seems to be very overly dry in places, but I also have acne on my chin almost all the time. I just don't know what to do. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Hello, what a wonderful opportunity. I have received prod...

@msjudi427 The key here is to balance your skin! Start with exfoliating your skin twice a week with KATE SOMERVILLE - ExfoliKate® Intensive Exfoliating Treatment. This will help with dead skin that is causing dry skin! Next, using a product with retinol is essential to help turn over skin cells and reduce signs of aging. My Kate Somerville DermalQuench® +Retinol Advanced Resurfacing Treatment 2.5 oz is great for this and you can use it nightly, as it also hydrates the skin! Finally, a serious anti-aging moisturizer is key! My absolute favorite is Kate Somerville Peptide K8™ Power Cream. It contains peptides that help with producing collagen and dry skin. It's seriously the best!

Hi Kate! I got stitches right by my eyebrow about a year...

Hi Kate! I got stitches right by my eyebrow about a year ago and I'm looking to fade the scar. Any product recommendations or tips?

Re: Hi Kate! I got stitches right by my eyebrow about a year...

@66clairebear So sorry to hear that! Our Kate Somerville D-Scar™ Scar Diminishing Serum 0.66 oz is a super effective scar reducing treatment. It helps with scarring but also uneven skin tone and texture. It's a game changer for scarring!

 

Xo, Kate

Re: Live Chat with Kate Somerville

Hello and Thank You for taking the time @katesomerville! I have been getting recurring  pimples and whiteheads on my chin and nose. I use your ExfoliKate Cleanser in the morning and a spot treatment but is there anything you recommend to solve the issue more long term. 

 

Also, has the formulation for the Quench Oil Free Hydrating Serum changed in the last year? I used to love it but it feels different now. Thanks!!!

Re: Live Chat with Kate Somerville

@Aaliaa Thank you for joining me.  For you, I would continue using ExfoliKate Cleanser in the morning and add in EradiKate Cleanser to pull out impurities. And if you are not sensitive to Benzoyl, I suggest using Anti-Bac every other night.  If you are unable to use Benzoyl, I would DermalQuench +Retinol every night to help with breakouts and smooth your skin at the same time. 

 

The formula for Quench Oil Free has not changed.  Becuase there are natural ingredients in this formula, the slip and feel can vary from batch to batch.

Re: Live Chat with Kate Somerville

Thanks for this @katesomerville, I've never used Benzoyl before so I will definitely give Anti-Bac a try. Is there any ingredients I should avoid using when I add this into my routine. I currently use (on rotation) Salicylic Acid, Lactic/Glycolic Acid toners and Vitamin C along with hydrating and moisturizing products.

 

Thank You and I second the request to bring back the Goat Milk Cleanser!

Re: Live Chat with Kate Somerville

Now that I've entered 30+ territory I have noticed that all kinds of powdered makeups just don't work for me (gets in creases, not cute). I don't mind having a dewy look but later in the day my nose gets greasy. What's your advice for non powder ladies who want to avoid oil around the nose?

Re: Live Chat with Kate Somerville

@Tremmy We all want that glow, but I know it can be tricky for my clients with oily skin. During the day, make sure you are using a moisturizer that is oil free. I love my Kate Somerville Oil Free Moisturizer 1.7 oz/ 50 mL because it hydrates while it provides a matte effect on the skin. xo Kate

Re: Live Chat with Kate Somerville

Is it true that products with oil will clogged your pores if you were to have an oily face? So for an oily face do you need to use oil free products? 

Re: Live Chat with Kate Somerville

@steph805  If you have oily skin, you don't need to add more oil.  You do need to hydrate the skin, as oily skin can still be dehydrated. I would use our Oil-Free Moisturizer, which has anti-aging ingredients gives a beautiful matte finish.

xo Kate
