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. :)
Relatively new to skincare. Not entirely positive on my skin type. Looking for tips and the basics. I’m currently using a lemon cleanser. Olay moisturizer and an eye cream. I just started using the Mario badescu rose face spray.
Morning everyone! Hope you’re all staying safe out here!
So I’ve struggled with this acne for a couple months. I’ve cleaned my pillows, changed my face wash and moisturizer, used face masks and exfoliation products, and it’s gotten...better, but hasn’t gone away. I do have an Olay acne wash that recently has made me feel like there’s razor blades going at my skin so I stopped using it:
Anything for oily, sensitive skin that’s affordable? I wash my face once-a-day and I may stop using my vitamin D serum in case it’s making it worse.
Anti aging routine
Hi all! I’m 35 and want to incorporate more anti aging into my skin care routine. I’ve had sensitive oily acne prone skin since I was a teen (hormonal causes) and my skin has just recently in the past year after having my daughter became more combo than oily. I’m still pretty sensitive. Any strong fragrance makes my skin turn as red as a tomato. I currently use oil of Olay total effects whip during the day and the total effects night cream. I wanted to add an anti aging serum both for day and night or one for day and a retinol for night. Any recommendations?
I’m looking for suggestions on a good foundation that is medium to full coverage, a dewy natural glow finish, and blends really well!
Right now I really like the coverage of tarte Amazonian clay for high end and l covergirl+olay simply ageless for drugstore.
