serums/creams/moisturizers that help with redness?? anything besides makeup
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
Ok my fellow oily skinned ladies! I have found an amazing regimen for oily skin that has kept my face matte and my foundation in place! Exfoliate with any exfoliating face wash Toner - any The Ordinary niacinamide and zinc - reduces oil production and shrinks large pores (over time) and reduces inflammation for sensitive or acne prone skin Neutrogena oil control primer serum - absorbs oil and nourishes face and primes for makeup Moisturizer - any Porefessional primer to problem areas - fills pores until the ordinary has time to reduce them (I’ve heard great reviews that it actually works over time) Covergirl trueblend mattifying primer Estée Lauder double wear - does not move or transfer or separate or crease at all Concealer - any Laura Mercier setting powder - sets and keeps skin matte Setting spray - any (I put both serums and mattifying primer around my eyes as well as I have problems with creasing) I know it’s a lot, but I have done so much for my oily skin and nothing has ever worked. 3 hours after applying my makeup it looks awful - separates, creases, cakes, wears off. This regimen keeps my makeup on for at least 12 hours and I did not blot or touch up at all. The serums absorb into the skin so well so they do not feel like extra layers. I am able to touch my face and my makeup does not transfer and my makeup still looks natural and not heavy. Try it!
