Re: Live Chat with Kate Somerville

What do you predict will be a trend in skincare next year? 🙂

Re: Live Chat with Kate Somerville

@zacmaur Something you might see in the coming year is products that balance your microbiome! Your microbiome is a combination of the good and bad bacteria that exists in your skin. We have a new product called Kate Somerville EradiKate® Salicylic Acid Acne Treatment 1 oz/ 30 mLthat treats acne and skin texture but also balances your microbiome! This allows skin to be balanced and happy. 

Xo, Kate

hi Kate. I have dry skin around my mouth. I have tried many items and they do not help. what do you suggest I use or what steps can I take so i can improve my dry skin.

Hi Kate! After almost a year on an oral contraceptive, my acne is nearly gone, but I have scarring left (mostly hyperpigmentation and some pit scars). I tried your scar serum roller and although I noticed some improvement it makes me breakout by clogging my pores. I already use your toner and spot treatment. What would you recommend for getting rid of my scars?

Re: Live Chat with Kate Somerville

@Greta55 A good exfoliator is essential here! Our Kate Somerville ExfoliKate® Cleanser Daily Foaming Wash 4 oz/ 118 mL melts away dead skin cells to reveal new, glowing skin. Next, a product with retinol to allow cell turnover like Kate Somerville DermalQuench® +Retinol Advanced Resurfacing Treatment 2.5 oz is a great addition to your nightly routine. This will reduce skin pigmentation and texture while hydrating the skin. 

 

Xo, Kate

Hi Kate! I'm a teen with reallllllllly oily skin. So oily that if I wash my face in the morning, I can't even get to lunch without feeling like a greasy french fry. It causes a lot of acne and congested pores....what products do you recommend for oil control?

Re: Live Chat with Kate Somerville

Hi Kate! 

How often should someone in their early twenties be exfoliating and how do I fit exfoliation into my routine? Is there such a thing as over-exfoliating? 

Re: Live Chat with Kate Somerville

@Iana23 Twice a week if you're using our KATE SOMERVILLE - ExfoliKate® Intensive Exfoliating Treatment! This will allow fresh, new skin to come through and reveal a brighter complexion. You can also use my Kate Somerville ExfoliKate® Cleanser Daily Foaming Wash 4 oz/ 118 mL daily to gently exfoliate and remove dead skin cells. Over-exfoliating is definitely a thing, so listen to your skin! 

Xo, Kate

Hi Kate !!

 

I live in Arizona and sun out here is brutal. I have tried numerous face sunscreens to protect my skin but find that they ruin any make up I later apply and also they usually lead to breakouts. Do you have a preference on powder vs liquid foundations with SPF?!? 

Live Chat with Kate Somerville

Hi Kate!thanks so much for this forum. I just started using yourEradikate sulfur cleanser and I'm in LOVE! I was wondering what products to use for the pores clogged with oil? Should I use mask more often? Thanks again.

I am a pale redhead (natural) with sensitive skin. I am looking for the most effective way to treat the cystic acne scars (concave) I got in my 20's. Any advice?

RE: Live Chat with Kate Somerville

How much is too much exfoliation? I alternate in the shower between exfolikate and my Clarisonic

Re: Live Chat with Kate Somerville

Hi Kate! I have dry skin in the Winter, and oily skin in the Summer. I also have some acne scars, and acne prone skin. What would you suggest as an acne treatment, and are there any products to even out my skin tone? Thank you!

RE: Live Chat with Kate Somerville

Hi Kate! Will you be bringing out a replacement for the daily deflector spf 50 you discontinued?

What's the best nightly routine for your skin when living in a polluted city?

Re: Live Chat with Kate Somerville

@sephoralover511 For all my city gals exfoliation is KEY! You want to make sure you are removing all the impurities you pick up throughout the day. Use KATE SOMERVILLE - ExfoliKate® Intensive Exfoliating Treatment2 2x per week in the shower with steam. Make sure to apply your favorite moisturizer after to feed your skin with nutrients and hydration. I call the putting the LOVE back into the skin. xo Kate
