Yet Another Skin Care Question!

No one knows good skin care products like DL, so...

What is a good daily cleanser for someone with dry skin? I'm using Kiehl's facial fuel right now because it was...gifted to me.

Also, for dry skin should I use an exfoliater? If so, how often?

(Yes, I moisturize like a mad man)

And do those eye balms really work?????

As Estee Lauder said, it's all just "hope in a jar."

Cetaphil is an awesome every day face wash. Very gentle, doesn't disrupt pH.

If you exfoliate (which you should), do the occasional glycolic or lactic acid from MUAC ( Do NOT use an abrasive scrub, it causes micro-tears!

Start using a good vitamin C serum in the morning (Jansen Beckett runs 50% promotions if you sign up), and there serum is every bit as good Skinceuticals or PTR.

Use retin-a/tretinoin at 3x a week at night. You can get it without a prescription.

Cetaphil and its users are TRASH.

My dermatologist recommends CereVa, both the face wash and moisturizer.

Pine Sol.

"because it was given to me."

"gift" is NOT a verb.

fuck you, R6

R2, what about Dermatologica's Daiy Microfoliant?

Does that count as an abrasive scrub? Because I'm addicted to it.

P.S. Are you Skinwoman?

Im a guy.

by Brand New Queenreply 911/13/2012

OK, R2 - but what's your opinion of Dermatologica's Microfoliant?

by Brand New Queenreply 1011/13/2012

Meant to add, TIA. Didn't mean to be a peremptory bitch about it. It's just that you've freaked me out with the 'microtears' thing.

by Brand New Queenreply 1111/13/2012

I just started on retina-a. My skin is flaky and irritated. This should subside after more long term use from what I've read.

Anyone on this for wrinkles? Did it work? I have fine lines developing under one eye that appear when I smile.

What about those little rolling pricky things?

I have a hair question. I know a 63-year-old woman with stringy hair, growing out a perm frizzy at the ends. It's shoulder length. Since she's kind of jowly, she wants me to suggest hair and makeup tips too. I don't have that gay gene. Any suggestions? I think she should make up her eyes, dye her hair, and do some kind of updo.

Bumping this thread - I noticed someone mentioned MUAC above - is this a trusted site on DL meaning its products are real? I was skimming through Amazon which has all these oddly similar brands for serums like Vitamin C. These are all scams, yes?

For example, the one brand which is highly rated over there is Oz Naturals which sells a 1oz 20% vitamin c serum for $21. On MUAC, a similar size is $56.

Thank you R6. We can not let "gifted" go uncommented. Really, OP, have you no shame?

by Brand New Queenreply 1601/05/2015

I use Dr. Gross' Active Vitamin D Serum-Oil. Just a few drops for face. Put on more generously on neck. Very emollient and helps with the beginnings of rings and crepey skin on neck.

I get it on Amazon for about half the price on Dr. Gross' site.

I wish you guys would put up pictures so I’d know who to avoid on Grindr...otherwise your puffy skin is indistinguishable from the real silly vain and gullible queens
