Skin Care Advice

If I post it on my page, I will get spammed with everyone trying to sell their products. So I thought to get honest opinion and feedback.

I am embarrassed about my skin. It gets oily on forehead but nose and cheeks are dry. A lot of redness. And lately acne type spots on my nose and chin. I have fair skin so they really stand out. Plus super insane dark eye circles.

ANOTHER GREAT POST:  Breast augmentation

I am 36. Tried different products that used to work great and suddenly don’t.

I am not entering menopause, my hormones are the same as before.

I would love opinions on products and prices.

  13. You need a product made for combination skin..but winter is probably not helping. Go talk with a beautician at Shoppers Drug Mart. They’ll know what you need and consult you for free. Also drink lots of water and take multivitamins.

    Witch hazel a cosmetic consult told me to try it and just dab it on the acne…..awesome and supper inexpensive find it by the rubbing alcohol and peroxide in the pharmacy area of you drug store. Heard about it first in the 90s in like cosmo or something wish i would have tried it then. Theres also a foaming black mask at shoppers that releases toxins its a sheet mask ask the people in cosmetics.

  16. Work natural products into your routine. I swapped out my toner for 50/50 water and ACV and it has been amazing. Honey is also amazing for the skin. Just make sure to spot test first for any reactions. Good luck!

    Over the counter stuff doesn’t work. Medi-spas have their own line if pharma cosmetics that are Dr approved and stronger than over the counter that work but more expensive. For redness in skin I find only an IPL laser can get rid of but see a dermatologist to be sure.

    EstroSmart!!! Not skin care but rather supplements that balance hormonal acne. I’ve been on 4 rounds of accutane and EstroSmart has been a game changer for me.

  27. Remember what goes in must come out…even through your skin. The biggest thing that changed my skin after my 30’s was MORE WATER and adding omega 3 supplements. Neutrogena naturals face wash was also a game changer.

  28. Face wash for sensitive skin is a good start. Some people like cream cleansers, I do not. I like Vichy or Shiseido skin products but they can be expensive. Had good results with Aveeno and Marcelle (cheaper). I would also take a look at your diet. That makes a huge difference! Do you drink enough water, use SPF face cream daily, do you sleep with makeup on, how old is your makeup and do you clean your brushes regularly? For the dark circles a brightening cream. I used the Shiseido one for spots,pigmentation, dark circles etc… it worked awesome.

  29. Wash your face every night before bed with a hot damp face cloth. And exfoliate with something moisturizing in the morning during your shower.

    • Aja Novic Aja Novic says:

      I agree with the hot washcloth every night. I used to spend so much money on different products and nothing worked. I travelled overseas and my luggage was lost with all my skin care products inside. Rather than using something new I started washing my face with a hot damp cloth and a miracle happened. All my acne started to go away. I also used honey as a mask every 2-3 days and would leave it on for 30 mins. I haven’t had any breakouts in years

    I have insanely sensitive skin.. it’s so sensitive to oil that I break out in cystic acne if i eat too much fish within a short time or if i put regular lotion on my hands and touch my face…but I also have very dry skin…weird i know.. over the years I’ve spent thousands on various products ranging in quality.. I’ve learned that unless it says “oil-free”..it will not touch my face. I use light exfoliating gloves daily to help keep pores unclogged and I buy oil-free cetaphil face lotion..its amazingingly moisturizing and super cheap (I used to spend $80 every 2 wks on a different moisturizer and cetaphil is a million times better and under $15! ) Tons & tons of water and don’t pick at them. There is acne medication out there too.. good luck! Acne sucks!!

  32. Take a look at Lush facemasks. They are all natural with no chemicals, are vegetarian and vegan, and do wonders for all skin types!

    I agree with Michelle Martin. Dermalogica is great! They have a moisturizer that has these microspheres or something that absorb oil and keeps you matte. Another line (only available online from Washington) is called Paula’s choice. They have a shine stopper cream that works amazing and they have an acne line but if you are getting acne spots on your dry skin, you need a cream, not a lotion for the dry areas. Once you’re properly moisturized the spots should minimize and go away. Sorry for long message. I’m a skincare nerd! I read all ingredients and research them. I worked in skincare for a couple of years and went to a bunch of skincare line schools such as Dior, Biotherm, vichy, La Roche Posay (which is a line a top plastic surgeon in Calgary recommends to his patients) and many other schools. Inbox me if you have any questions! I could go on forever about skincare. For some people (including myself) dairy causes me to break out even as bad as cystic acne which is quite painful.

  34. Vichy products! You can visit any shoppers and speak to the ladies at the beauty boutique for a free skin care consult and they will show you the best skin care regimen based on your skin type.

  35. Look at what you are eating. High sugar, dairy, breads etc I break out if I eat dairy or bread no matter how often I wash my face.
    Aswell check your makeup and lotion, it could be expired and you don’t know and that’ll cause a reaction

    • So many people turn to more chemicals to add to their skin and never think to question what they are putting into their bodies. If I eat a greasy fast food burger I’ve got breakouts on my face almost next day. Good advise!

    go back to diet, too much dairy can cause breakouts, add some fibre and see if that helps

    Check out the brand the Ordinary. It’s not direct sales. It’s very reasonably priced. And I genuinely love it.

  40. Bear with me. The problem is usually on the inside. Acidophilus helps tons with intestinal yeast, which clears out a lot of impurities. As for the outside, I’ve had extremely oily skin and washed only with water until recently, and changed from a liquid foundation to a powder. No moisturizer at all unless it is on a dry patch, and never daily. Look into the acidophilus, though.
