With so many people moving into serums and acids just a reminder:
You should NOT mix these
VITAMIN C + AHAS/BHAS : Combining retinol with Vitamin C is a recipe for peeling, redness and irritation, in short, a total disaster for the health of your skin
RETINOIDS + AHAS/BHAS: damages skin moisture barrier and can cause irritation, redness, dry skin over time; use separately and sparingly
RETINOIDS + VITAMIN C: may cause over exfoliation, resulting in increased skin and sun sensitivity; separate into day/night routines
Benzoyl peroxide + vitamin C
OIL-BASED + WATER-BASED.
GLYCOLIC ACID + SALICYLIC ACID: too many acids can strip the skin and damage its ability to recover
NIACINAMIDE + VITAMIN C: use in careful moderation. Some studies show that They stabilize each other some shoe that mixing vitamin c can result in a niacin flush (red irritation to the skin).
-Retinols should mostly be used at night
- Vitamin C should mostly be used at night
-Wait 20 mins when layering multiple serums (if you find your skin can tolerate it in one setting)
-Don’t forger your SPF 30 during the day
-When introducing acids to your face “purging” is only normal to a certain extent
Is Cetaphil really that good for an affordable skincare brand? I see it all the time in CVS and hear nothing but great stuff, but I’m kinda hesitant since I have oily, sensitive, (sorta) acne prone skin.
I need help finding the right foundation for my skin. I sweat more then a normal person should because I have some health problems that cause heat flashes and my skin gets oily. By the end of an 8 hour work day it looks like I didn’t even do my makeup. So if anyone has a good medium to full coverage foundation liquid or powder that can stay on my face, and maybe a setting spray let me know. I’ve tried The all nighter setting spray and it doesn’t work for me. Help! #oilyskin #sweatyface #breakouts #ineedhelp #help #advice
Drugstore matte liquid lipstick that doesn’t crack easily or feel super sticky.
I currently use the Maybelline SuperStay Matte Ink, and I really do love them, but they’re just a little too sticky for me & crack really easy.
And when I say “drugstore” I mean from Wal-Mart or CVS. 😂
Doesn’t necessarily have to be a liquid either.
Please & thank you in advance. 😊
What drugstore brand has the best black lipstick? (Target, Walmart, cvs)
Hi, so I know this might not exactly be “makeup” related. However, I wanted to ask if anyone knew of any good products etc for hair growth/hair health. Again, out of the context of makeup but thought I would ask. Thanks!
