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
Looking for a foundation similar to the MAC Mineralize Moisture Foundation! Love how easy it is to apply, buildable coverage, and dewy finish. Unfortunately is now discontinued!
Please leave any recommendations!! :)
I’ve been having an issue finding a full coverage foundation and setting powder combo that doesn’t feel as though all the moisture is being sucked out of my skin. I cleanse and moisturize, prime with green color correcting primer , and use a sponge for foundation. I like full coverage because of the rosacea, and I like a matte finish but after applying powder, I crease, and crack, and overall feel super dry. I’m over 40, have fine lines to boot. Any suggestions?
I want to switch up my skincare routine a little. What are some hydrating serums, moisture, cleanser, mask, etc. you use?! (Mid range price range - willing to spend a little extra if worth it but nothing crazy) thanks ladies :)

Primer / Concealer Question :
I have very dry skin but at the end of the end my face looks dewy/sweaty? What’s a good Long Lasting primer that will add moisture but won’t crease/cake up and stop this end of the day dewy look?? I’m 26 and still get acne so nothing irritating. I prefer a more natural finish. I currently use the FIT ME foundation. Also looking for a good lightweight concealer for dark under eyes...Thanks in advance!!

Is the Garnier SkinActive Moisture Rescue Face Moisturizer suitable for really oily skin? I have very oily skin, especially on my T-zone and it gives out a very noticeable shine. I’m trying to find a cheap/drugstore moisturizer to use on my oily face. Any suggestions if the Garnier one isn’t the one for me?
Anyone know of a great tinted moisturizer that won’t make my skin look flakey or dry when applied to my skin, I’ve tried Clinique moisture surge and first aid beauty’s shade rage isn’t light enough for my skin. I have super dry, sensitive, acne prone skin. I’ve applied tinted moisturizer with my hands which left my skin flakey, then applied moisturizer and applied with a brush but still had the same affect, am I doing something wrong?? I want a natural finish without the hassle of a lot of makeup
Anyone have any recommendations for the order in which to apply your skin care products? I’m confused when to use moisturizer since some suggest right after washing your face while it’s still damp to lock in moisture, and others say it should be the last product you apply before sunscreen.. any help?!
