Can people recommend some good drugstore skincare for combination skin?! I have oily t-zone and dry cheeks and neck. And I have mild acne, and I try everything! Witch hazel, aloe Vera, etc. I also have very bad scarring on my cheeks.
Ok so I’m a student and I like to wear a minimal amount of makeup (mascara, concealer, highlight, and brows) that isn’t too heavy. I’ve been searching for the right products for a long while now and I can’t seem to find anything. You see, I’m not very talented when it comes to makeup, and I do t exactly know what to do. Like with my brows, how????? I’ve been using gel and I just can’t seem to get it right. My concealer just does not do the job when concealing my under eye bags, but in all fairness they’re very prominent and dark. I should also mention I’m allergic to anything with aloe vera in it. So I’m pretty picky with what I wear out of the house. I’d really appreciate some recommendations or advice! :)
What I’ve learned working for a Derm...
So Im an RMA/CMA working for a dermatologic/plastic surgeon. I’ve learned a lot these past few months and then came across this platform. I get a lot of patients who come in having reactions to all kinds products people are told are good for your skin by word of mouth. People get mad when we tell them to throw all they know out the window. Truth be told the more bland the better. Theres not magic cream out there, but everyone is different so some things may or may not work for you. What i do want to point out is that a lot of products do more harm then good. For example, things like witch hazel i love but have stopped using because its sooooooo drying and can irritate the skin and not actually “tone” it. Another thing is SPF. Big makeup companies will sell you the most expensive one they have, but if it doesn’t contain zinc oxide or titanium dioxide it don’t work! So throw that olay away. I can go on and on about what we recommend you do and don’t do, and always feel free to ask but to close this out...Basically you need brands like cetaphil or cerave. We find that MOST, not all, people aren’t sensitive to these brands. Really the key to good skin is wash, KEEP MOISTURIZED, and SPF**** however i will say, i like aloe vera and what it has done for my skin and i don’t find it does any harm unless you develop or have an allergy.... and yes, you can develop an allergy to things you have used all your life just fyi. But in the end its good to have a nice solid routine. Play around with affordable brands and see what your skin likes. And if you’ve got acne you cant get under control i HIGHLY recommend seeing a derm so they can help you find a routine to use in combo with any Rx. please take your time finding a good derm, not just a spa that wants to sell you a facial and their products. :)
So I went to ulta today and bought this foundation... only to realize it’s bad for my oily skin as it says in the reviews on this app, I don’t know if to keep it or go exchange it. The lady convinced me into getting it since I wanted something full coverage but she forgot to mention it wasn’t good for oily skin types and now I’m low key upset because I was really looking forward to it and now I don’t know what other foundation I’m going to end up getting.
Heey, so I have comedonal acne, tiny bumps all over. Salicylic acid doesn’t work, or anything with aloe or honey, etc. I’ve realized foundation looks worse because it settles on the bumps, I was wondering if there are any BB creams to recommend? :)
Help.... I just cannot figure out the key to using this primer. It makes my face feel tight and my concealer and contour just pick up my foundation

AMAZING SKINCARE ROUTINE FOR SENSITIVE SKIN/REDNESS!
1: cleanse with dr bronners citrus orange soap MIXED with The Body Shop’s tea tree oil clearing facial wash. I get a little travel size plastic bottle and mix the two. I do this day and night for best results!!
2: use Witch Hazel on a cotton ball all over your face
3: after that’s dried a little use a small amount of aloe Vera all over. This helps with redness and soothes the skin amazingly!!!
4: for the moisturizer I use Vitamin E Oil all over. Can put on a cotton ball.
BEEN DOING THIS FOR ALMOST A MONTH, ACNE HAS CLEARED, DARK SPOTS FADED, AND REDNESS REDUCED SIGNIFICANTLY. SKIN IS LESS OILY OR DRY. !!USING VITAMIN E OIL WILL NOT MAKE OILER SKIN OILY! YOUR BODY MAKES YOUR SKIN PRODUCE MORE OIL WHEN YOURE LACKING IT!!! (BETTER DIET MAKES A DIFFERENCE TOO)
