Good serums for dry skin and redness? I have tried the ordinary but it doesn’t seem to hydrate my skin enough

Who here has started a 10 step K-Beauty Regimen? Love it or hate it? Recommend your fave products, please. Like what even is Essence?

K-beauty is great. But the “10 step” idea is more likely harmful than helpful for your skin since you are likely to over expose you skin to harmful ingredients :/ I included a link to a video where Hyram helps explain it but I’ll sum up what he said too. When you would normally get X amount of a vitamin/ingredient in one product and that is fine but if you multiply it across several products...you see what I mean? Often the main irritant from that sort of process is fragrance. Which if you didn’t know, companies don’t have to tell you what ingredients make up the label “fragrance”. Having a routine is good but toners, essences, and face masks can all often address the same issues in one product. 10 steps is overkill. Save your money and stick with something that’s more like 4 to 6 things(?) my not an expert guess haha. Anyways! My favorite Korean brands are iUNIK and Purito. They have great skincare with some fragrance free options. Hope that helps! :)

Any recommendations for a long lasting medium/full coverage foundation that doesn’t rub off when touched and has (mostly) clean ingredients? I have acne-prone combination skin and I can’t seem to find something that my skin consistently agrees with

Currently searching for products to use on my birthday and I need advice on primers, longwearing foundations, concealers and powders with no flashback. So far I’m interested in trying Charlotte Tilbury’s most recent foundation and the pressed powder. Any luxury recommendations that are worth the splurge and hold up on combo/oily skin? I struggle with a lot of shine mainly between my brows and around my nose :)

I have dry skin and lately any cleanser has been drying me out terribly and almost every moisturizer is just not enough I recently tried Ponds cold cream cleanser and it truly worked wonders I can absolutely see why it’s still a really good buy since 1846, it left my skin super soft, hydrated, moisturized and clean. I first removed most of my makeup with the Ulta makeup removing towel (like a MakeupEraser) then I massage the cold cream on my face avoiding my eyes, and leave it on (a bit like a mask and for it to work and grasp on any dirt, oil and pollution I have on my face) while I get in the shower and wash my body, then I take a wash cloth, soak it in warm water and gently wipe my face clean. You’ll be surprised how soft and moisturizer your face is. The Fragrance Free version I usually find it at Target for about $5 I paired it with their dry skin moisturizer and it is truly amazing! Star Duo! Never in my life I thought I would EVER use Ponds, and I love it!

@Emily oh, I’m so sorry Emily They do say when people try ponds they either love it or hate it The irritation might have been from the fragrance too

We had to dress in purple in spirit of my sons football homecoming game. I used the JH x Morphe Vault palette. Beauty Bakerie brownies for my eyebrows. Beauty Bakerie coffee x Cocoa Palette for my blush, bronzer, and highlighter. Beauty Bakerie flour setting powder. Tarte shape tape concealer. And Black Opal Beauty “Whim” for lips. And some more stuff I tagged 😁 how’s everyone been? I feel like I haven’t been on this app

I have dry, acne prone skin and I have been trying everything to get rid of my acne for the past year! nothing works (curology, neutrogena light mask, acne washes, tea tree oil, mario badescu- you name it!) does anyone have any recommendations for a natural at home remedy for acne? I’m done with all the chemicals ingredients on my face.

I know you said no chems but the only thing that worked for me was 1 session of a chemical peel (ask for 7 layers) and drink ONLY water in place of any other beverage. ONLy WaTeR!! Don’t believe me, look at my before and afters. Still can’t believe it’s me. - 1 session of a strong chemical peel -Drink Water ONLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! -Oxy gently in circular motions until face starts feeling tingly. -and an oil free moisturizer! Let me know how it goes! Good luck!

Honestly I did like three to four different sessions of chemical peels and they really were life changing. Unfortunately for me my acne continued so I went on Accutane

I’ve asked for recommendations for foundations a bit lately but I always ask for drugstore products. Now I’m just asking for any suggestions for foundations for dry skin, my go to has been e.l.f. Flawless Finish Foundation but now with the weather changing even it’s looking kind of dry and flaky on me, even though I’ve switched to my thick moisturizer and prep my skin thoroughly beforehand. I really want to find a foundation with good coverage that’s also very hydrating and I just haven’t had any luck with any I’ve tried so far, so any suggestions are much appreciated.

@Emily Noelle Selby definitely gonna have to try it, it is super affordable. How is the coverage? I’m super self conscious about my blemishes I also have a good sized scar directly underneath my chin. I’m super embarrassed by it I got it in the 3rd grade I’m 27 now 🥺

What are your favorite face masks? I’m never really sure if they work or they just feel good, but I’m willing to try a few more in the next few weeks. My skin type is oily.

Glossier has cloud paint! I would recommend trying on in store if there’s one near you, they have a lot of shades for different skin tones.

So no matter what type of foundation, setting spray, and translucent powder I use my skin ALWAYS gets oily/shiny and caked in my pores. I have tried a TON of remedies and no success 😕 any advice or products? Thank you!

So this could sound crazy but if you have tried a bunch of things your skin could be dehydrated and overproducing oil to compensate. Maybe try extra hydration at night followed by a non stripping cleanser in the morning. I also recommend daily use of niacinamine to help reduce pore size and regulate sebum production.

What’s the consensus on fragrance in your skin care. Like I hear it’s bad and then I hear it’s fine?! I just don’t know if I should be trying to get all my skincare without any added fragrance?

Fragrance can cause redness, irritation, and breakouts for those with sensitive skin. If your skin isn’t too sensitive then fragrance shouldn’t really effect you, but if you are still unsure than you could always be on the safe side. But make sure you get a toner with no alcohol in it. I recommend the Pixi Glow Tonic.

Anyone know a good face sunscreen for sensitive acne prone skin, a lot of face sun screens I got for my face make me break out or irritates it??

I use this sunscreen. I have highly sensitive skin, and I find this one to be lightweight and genuinely good for your skin. It is a bit on the pricier side and hard to get a hold of. However if you speak to someone that does facial cleanings or a dermatologist, they might be able to help. This product has helped me, personally, a lot!

I’m currently using retinA face cream if you don’t know what its a very strong cream for my acne prescribed by my doctor, it’s been working great! Except going through the part where my skin is literally peeling the top layer and is super dry and sensitive, I exfoliate almost every night but when I do my makeup I use my brush and it takes off my skin and gives me this ugly flaky makeup foundation worse then when I had none on. Any help? #dryskin

Oh girl i feel your pain, I’m on accutane right now and my skin is suuuuper dry. This mask seriously made a HUGE difference in my skin. It’s basically just a really thick, moisturizing lotion so I’m not really sure why they call it a mask but seriously, you should try it

What are your thoughts about the Fenty Beauty Foundation? (The matte one) I am so tempted to try it but some people said it can be pretty dry and I have some dry patches on my cheeks. What are your recommendations?

I love this foundation but I also have to be conscious about the fact that it’s a bit more dry and I’ve been leaning towards a bit more dry lately. So to keep hydrated I use the Mario Badesco rose spray, St. Ives renewing face & neck moisturizer, L’Oreal eye defense, Urban Decay Quick Fix spray, and I’ve been sampling both the Fenty hydrating primer and the Milk Makeup Hydro grip primer and I like them both. Doing this I avoid dry patches, but I still look a bit matte because I prefer a matte/natural look
