  1. Are you sure it wasn't from your makeup or some other product? Blue is pretty dramatic, I have to say.
  2. Those look very interesting, I'll have to look into them further.
  3. All of the advice here just proves that not everything works for everyone. Carefully try different methods to see what works. Just don't change too many things at once, or you will never know which one is best.
  4. If you are worried about the pain and the depth of the needles, try going to a dermatologist or medi-spa. I think you get better results that way, too.
  5. I would suggest trying things one at a time. If you know exfoliating doesn't work well for your skin, skip it for now. Maybe change your moisturizer first and see how that goes. If you change too many things at once, you won't know what is working or what is causing issues.
  6. Microneedling will hurt somewhat. I recommend going to a dermatologist and trying radio frequency micro-needling. The pain is minimal and the results are awesome. They will give you something for the pain if you need it.
  7. I like the three bite rule: just take three bites and really enjoy them.

    Vegan oil

    Most oils for skin care are vegan, as far as I know. That is, they are plant-based. If you are looking for cruelty-free, that's a different issue. This website lists brands that are cruelty-free. https://www.crueltyfreekitty.com/
  9. Certainly, a laser procedure such as enlighten mentioned above will help improve the quality of your skin. But once you have it, maintaining a regular skincare regimen that includes cleansing, exfoliating, toner, and moisturizer will help keep your skin looking good.
  10. Try this regimen for beautiful skin all year long: Exfoliate to remove dead skin cells. I exfoliate every night when I wash my face with a gentle cleanser. Experiment to see what is best for you, some people can only exfoliate 2-3 times a week. Exfoliating will also help your skin care products work better. Alcohol-free toner to reduce redness and restore skin's pH. Moisturize. Sunscreen, sunscreen, sunscreen, even if you are going to be inside. Drink plenty of water. Hope your summer goes well.
  11. Everyone's skin reacts differently to products, but I can tell you that when I started to use toner regularly my skin changed dramatically for the better. Keep trying until you find the right products and regimen for your skin.
  12. I use a face brush regularly. Start out gently and see how it goes. Your skin will tell you what it likes. Good luck.
  13. Lime Crime Cashmere is my fave all-around lipstick. Sometimes I use it to blend other shades on top of it, it just creates a nice foundation. I love their colors, too, they are so intense.
  14. Mary Kay actually has the best makeup remover. My sister used to sell MK, and that was the most asked-for product. I disagree that cleansers damage the skin, if your cleanser is making you break out or irritating your skin, keep trying until you find one that doesn't. Something that important to your skincare should help, not hurt, your skin.
  15. Hormone changes are the main cause of pimples, the oily food, etc, just aggravates it. ONe of the best things you can do is limit washing your face to twice a day. Once at night to clean makeup, etc and once in the morning. Excess washing causes the skin to dry out and as a result, it will produce more oil. That aggravates pimples and you are in an endless loop of breakouts. Taking care with your skincare and diet will help reduce breakouts. Good luck.
  16. Also, have you ever tried to hold on to weights after applying moisturizer? You need to wash your hands well or you will slip all over the place. Be careful about depending too much on makeup removal wipes. They remove makeup but don't really clean your skin. Plus, they have preservatives and other chemicals. Soap and water is best. You can wipe your face down with alcohol-free toner afterward, I like Thayers.
  17. Three things might help, if you are not already doing them. Choose a cream instead of a lotion or gel Never use an astringent or toner Use fragrance-free rather than unscented products (they're not exactly the same)
  18. Yes, sadly, it seems like all the good food to eat is bad for skin, and health in general. ? I guess the best way to look at it is "stay away from them as much as possible," because of course, we all indulge sometimes.
  19. Just to be clear, laser hair removal uses non-ionizing radiation that does not remains at the skin level. It is ionizing radiation that, when it passes through the body can cause damage. There are no studies indicating that non-ionizing radiation in the amount used in a laser hair removal causes cancer. Hope that helps.
  20. You can experiment with a variety of night creams until you find the one that works best. Missing a night should be no big deal, but tanning will be. The best way to protect your skin is to stay out of the sun and use sunscreen every time you leave the house, rain or shine, and no matter the season. Other than that, follow these basic steps: Daily Cleanse and lightly exfoliate am and pm Toner Moisturizer Sunscreen Weekley Deep exfoliation Masque Experiment until you find the products that work best on your skin. Good luck with your efforts.
  21. It does have to be done following your hair's growing cycle. Not all follicles are active at once, which is why you get regrowth after one or two treatments. The dormant follicles aren't targeted, because the hair has to be growing during treatment. But, after a few treatment sessions, you should see good results.
  22. Getting enough sleep and a good eye cream or serum can help. Or a cooling face mask, which also rests your eyes. Also, check your diet, green tea, avocados, salmon, and eggs are all good to eat to reduce inflammation and give your skin the vitamins it needs. Until these things work, a little concealer can go a long way.
  23. Once I know how a brand fits me, I prefer to shop online. I watch until the item goes on sale low enough. Sometimes I miss, but if I time it right, I can get good deals. Plus, knowing when the brands I like go on sale.
  24. Here are a few things I've used to reduce oil production in my skin: Avoid washing your face more than twice a day, too much cleansing causes oil production to go into overdrive. Try using a cleanser with salicylic acid in it. Ues less makeup Exfoliate once a week Always use sunscreen Clean up your diet Moisturize Hope this helps.
  25. It's not the products you use, but how and when you use them that makes a difference. For example, I exfoliate my skin every day, that's too much for some people. I like a 4-step routine. in practice, I combine steps 1 & 2, as I have done below. Also, if you have oily skin, don't be tempted to wash your face too much, twice a day is fine. Too much and you will strip your skin of its natural oil, and cause it to produce more, not exactly what you want or need. 1) Wash with a gentle cleanser and 2) use a face brush or cloth to gently exfoliate 3) Toner -- I use witch hazel with no alcohol in it 4) Moisturiser -- may add an eye cream or serum to my night routine A deep cleansing/exfoliating masque once a week. I like to keep it simple, there's a better chance I'll actually do it that way. My general rule of thumb when applying creams and serums is lightest to heaviest. Serums tend to be lighter, so that would go first. Creams are heavier, so they go next. That way the heavier product won't keep the lighter product from being absorbed by the skin. Of course, you have to evaluate and see how your skin reacts. Some people don't like to exfoliate every day, it irritates their skin. Also, if you haven't been exfoliating, you may get some flakyness at first, this is just excess dead skin cells sloughing off. If you get red and irritated, you are exfoliating too hard or too often. And always wear sun screen, regardless of the weather or season. This will protect your skin and preserve all your hard work. Hope this helps.
