So Im a makeup beginner and I’ve been wondering what to use for my eyebrows. They are mostly full but have sparse ends. I’m best with pencil but it sometimes may rub off by the end of the day and pomade and I are not the best of friends (I guess because I don’t really know how to use it?) Could anyone recommend some good products at a good price? (I’m a high school student and I’m very much broke ;-;)
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
good cleanser recommendations for acne prone and sensitive skin? i want to try something new that maybe might work better, acne is one of my biggest insecurities and i just feel like my cleanser isn’t cutting it... (also any other products you may think of!)
Every time I apply my makeup, I look especially cakey despite not putting a lot of product on. I think it may be my primer. Any good primer suggestions for oily skin? I also have pretty sensitive skin.
Foundation recommendations for dry flaky skin!
Okay sooo I really really hate my skin and acne and my grandma recently bought me some Too Faced born this way foundation cause I thought I may work cause I have extremely dry, flaky skin, but it didn’t and it flakes still and patches, so does anyone have tips for me on how to get it to stay or good foundations that are good coverage and preferably matte but I’m fine with whatever, my limit of paying for it is 50$ probably. Thanks!
i have Roseca, a skin condition that makes my face look broken out constantly but it’s mostly just irritation with a few zits/pimples. what are some good skin care items that are safe to use and may even help?
heeyyy you guys.!! i hope all of you are doing well, listen on some real talk i need advice ASAP...😭🙃 so i recently have gotten over a really bad break out so my face is clear now but i am starting to notice that i am getting bumps and at first i thought it was acne again but it’s not they are just small bumps on my face and idk if you ladies know what i’m talking about but if you do may you please recommend something that has helped..?!?! anything🤧
I’m looking for suggestions for skin care products for dry skin and anti aging with some discoloration. I have decent skin but it could be better so I’d like to find some new products that may work better for me, I’m particularly looking for a new chemical exfoliator, overnight mask and serum but any recommendations would be much appreciated. And I’m on a bit of a budget so I’m trying to look for products $40 and under.
Okay, this may be a silly question, but I’m really not sure. I know that foundations can oxidize throughout the day and get darker, but has anyone ever experienced it getting lighter? Earlier today I put my makeup on and it looked good in several lighting situations, but now I looked in the mirror (in one of the same lighting situations) and my face looks pale compared to my neck. Is it just a result of bronzer and blush wearing off? Am I just sounding silly? 😂 Help! #help #whatsgoingon
I just got into the skincare and taking better self care of myself now. Since I’m still new and use water as the only source of cleaning my face, may I ask if anyone recommended me any good sunscreen? I have sensitive skin, as well as combination! ￼Oh, also since my skin color is already dark, please recommend non-tinted sunscreen!
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. :)
i love this facial spray. it’s perfect during the summer and winter time or whenever you need quick hydration ! i use this daily and i have very dry skin and this has helped so muchhh ❤️ and i also have sensitive skin and there is zero irritation; however, this is my experience with the product. you may have a different experience, but i highly recommend this for anyone, with all skin types.
