For the past year I’ve been trying to transition to wearing a physical SPF. I’ve always been religious about wearing SPF but have noticed some sunspots crop up within the last year.
The problem is that zinc oxide REALLY dries my skin out no matter what I try to prevent it. I’ve tried numerous different brands, layering over a thick night time moisturizer, etc.
Does anyone else have this issue? What have you done to troubleshoot it? Do I really need a zinc SPF or will chemical help prevent sunspots too?submitted by /u/amperson0322
I have just seen a video about the dangers of low molecular weight hyaluronic acid and I would like to know if Cerave uses this type of HA? How to find out, thank you?submitted by /u/resilience00
I won’t deny I’ve got in my mind now all the things we’d do
So I’ll try to talk refined for fear that you find out how I’m imaginin’ you

I have tried tret and it was fine actually (until I worked up to daily over many many months and it was too much) but honestly it was just too much work. Between the layering, the waiting to dry and the exactness of it all I just didnt like it.
I am fairly low maintenance but can stick to a routine. I am 32F and overall my skin is good except a few forehead lines and maybe general tiredness.
What is a good drugstore recommendation that maybe has some retinol or anti aging that has good results? I am not looking to stop time just something to assist that isnt so time consuming.
I have tried the olay in the purple bottle/tub and it was fine just not sure if it is any good.
Thanks!submitted by /u/natnat111
Recently turned 31. I’ve mostly been blessed with really good skin. Just had some acne in my mid 20s for a year or two, and I believe it was emotional and gut related acne (I cleared up my diet, worked on my emotional health, got into skin care at 28/29 and it all went away). Now my skin isn’t perfect lately, I’ve been through a lot this past year (not even covid related, just toxic relationship, family crap, stress). I’ve been able to get good products but I generally keep it simple.
One thing that bugs me though is that my skin seems flakier these days. I know some of it is my diet (I’m gluten intolerant and I’ve been eating it heavily these past 2 years), but some must be products? Could it just be age? I have oily skin for the most part so I usually wake up with some oil. I don’t think it’s dryness.
I use the Vichy SPF 50 facial sunscreen. I guess it’s also meant for your body too but I figured it was fine… well, it kinda sucks at least with my skin. Here are the other products I use (if it helps) in the morning:
- LaRoche Posay cleanser (gel)
- Vitamin C serum (Glow recipe pineapple)
- LaRoche Posay moisturizer (rich)
Everything except for the sunscreen was working perfectly for me for a while. Any ideas?submitted by /u/popeyes2990
Sometimes you just miss but that’s a spot that’s entirely exposed if you’re outside. Probably a couple of times isn’t a big deal but it could be a problem if you’re missing all the time.submitted by /u/alamurda510

this product is amazing, if you’re from the uk id recommend trying it
it’s made from fruit and as you can probably tell has only 13 calories per tea spoon. personally i think it has a semi maple flavour but it’s so good.
i had it on a rice cake and the snack was only 33 calories (i used .5 tsp) - it’s good on apples too.
i have a very sweet tooth sometimes and this is amazing
I’ve got genetically thin skin under the eyes, which just started to manifest and will eventually turn into my dad’s enormous droopy eye bags when I’m his age. It’s particularly pronounced in my right eye, which is coincidentally quite prone to twitching when I’m stressed/tired, and which bags up a lot whenever I smile.
I’m just wondering if products like argeriline might help relax overactive underye muscles?submitted by /u/Embolisms
Cross-posting from another sub because it seems to have gotten buried there (I hope that’s allowed!).
I’m a bit of a newbie here and have been trying to up my skincare game for awhile. Hoping to get some thoughts on this new routine before I splurge on a few new products. I already know to add new products into my routine gradually, but what I’ve shared below is where I’m aiming to end up. Do you have any recommendations for how I could improve it?
A bit about me: I’m 31 and my skin is fair with freckles and strong pink undertones. I’d like to do what I can to reverse existing sun damage and prevent/reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
Morning 1. Garner Micellar Cleansing Water 2. Skinceuticals CE Ferulic (I’ve heard you should apply while skin is damp, is this correct?) 3. OSEA Eye Gel Serum 4. OSEA Firming Eye Cream 5. First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream 6. Supergoop! Matte screen spf 40 7. Makeup application
Evening 1. Bobbi Brown Soothing Cleansing Oil or Micellar Cleansing Water to take my makeup off 2. Gentle cleanser 3. OSEA Eye Gel Serum 4. OSEA Firming Eye Cream 5. Shani Darden Retinol Reform 6. First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream 7. Aquaphor
Can’t wait to hear what you think! Thanks in advance!!submitted by /u/Bougiecandles
I’m in my early 30s. My skin would be considered dry.
I attempted to use rosehip seed oil for some time during the last month as I read that many acne-prone, sensitive skin types had success with it.
I was left with numerous closed comedones. I also use a moisturizer (Theraplex Hydro daily moisturizer) but I don’t know which it could be that’s causing the clogging. I think the culprit is the oil but I can’t be 100% sure.
As of last night, I have cut out the rosehip seed oil.
I was just Rx’ed Retin-A so I started that last 6 days ago.
I’m hoping all the redness and cc’s will disappear. I feel like I can’t go out without makeup. I don’t even want my husband to see my bare face at this point.
Since I’ve gotten to my 30’s my face just went haywire with sensitivity to everything I try to use on it 😥.
My current routine is:

My husband and I just bought a house, so my budget is going to shrink a bit for skincare as my mortgage goes up. I currently use all LRP products with the exception of The Ordinary argireline.
Any recommendations for my switch? Should I keep some LRP products and slowly transition?
Are there some LRP products that are significantly better than TO?
Sad to have to do this but I’m about to become house poor for sure!submitted by /u/leashinreallife
