New skin makeup
Common Questions and Answers about New skin makeup
Taking hcg is an approach to a new lifestyle; it's a way to start a new,healthy life. The only things you should put on your skin are the things that are mentioned in the book. However, if you're are going out one night and you'd like to put on a little makeup, I don't see where a little bit would hurt (it might slow your weight loss just a little, though). If you put something on your skin, it's just like eating it (it gets absorbed into your blood stream).
Fine lines- eye cream (age defying)
Makeup - moisturize with a moisturizer that's based on your skin type. Skin needs to be hydrated before you put on makeup, it will give you a natural glow. I can email you a few ideas, tips and tricks if interested!
Hope this helped!
I'm terribly picky about my eyebrows so I always wax and I take care of my skin so I have no need to really wear makeup. My boyfriend could careless if I wear it or not cuz he thinks I'm pretty all the time, so there's no real reason for me to wear it expect to the fact that I like playing with it.
To Brunette Bimbo why don't you try just using a tinted moisturizer, it'll give you a tan and glow your looking for without looking fake and cakey that wearing too much makeup can give you.
It is invisible until I place make-up on top - then it appears as white patches (taking on the colour of the makeup). It doesn't show up very well in photos but I have attached one. And without make-up it is undetectable.
It feels sore when washing or applying cream, but is not itchy or red. It is not flakey.
Does anyone know what it could be? I haven't used any new products in the area or had anything similar to this before. There is also a smaller patch on the other eye.
I have had what seems to be issues with eye makeup, even hypoallergenic brands. My eyelids (usually my right is the worst) will get what looks like flesh colored bumps on it, and then it will begin to burn on top of my eyelid. Putting Aquaphor on it helps. Usually though, within a few hours (especially overnight), my eyelid(s) will completely swell up to where I can almost not see. This happened again last night.
I'm 30 years old and I've had flawless skin my entire life. But for the past 5 months I've woken up with a new pimple on my face some of which take 3 months or more to heal. Nothing has changed in my diet or my usual routine or make up products. I eat well and sleep well. I don't understand what is happening. Not sure if I need to see a specialist or what. Is there any advice you can offer??
Well, hsv - 1 isn't really serious. In fact, both herpes viruses aren't really serious and are almost identical in their makeup. They affect the skin, and in 2/3s of people, symptoms don't appear, or are so mild that they go unnoticed. Recurring outbreaks diminishes in number over the years, and some people never see outbreaks at all, because their immune systems are more than capable of controlling the virus. Hsv - 1 is responsible for what we call, 'cold sores'.
Cleansing and exfoliating too much can cause breakouts as well.
What about your makeup? Have you used any newmakeup line that might not be suitable for your skin type?
Try to think back to what you did when your skin was more balanced. My guess is that you've passed the puberty stage so it's probably something you've done differently in your routine. Simple is usually the best. Don't overload your skin with too many treatments or products. Cleanse once in the morning and once at night.
) and how do i know when it's safe to start using my newmakeup???? it looks completely gone to me just a few dry skin areas that look like winter dryness. it never looked like ringworm in the first place (round) so it's hard to tell.
With my first pregnancy I broke out pretty bad in the beginning and this was new to me too b/c I have always had clear skin. I didn't do anything about it I just kind of lived with it b/c I am pretty sure I was too tired to care :) This time around I have had one zit pop up, but other than that I am still looking pretty clear. Now I just have to hope it stays that way!
Just wondering if anyone else has had problems with hyperpigmentation of the skin on the face (Melasma)? I have had problems with dark pigmented areas on my face for 10+ years, despite wearing sunscreen religously. However, when researching the hyperpigmentation, I found that a number of people with this problem also have thyroid disorders.
I'd love to get some feedback to give to my Endocrinologist.
Two years ago, the prescribing doctor had me using Renova .02% daily on fair skin for several months. When my skin felt tight (I had no clue this meant I was dehydrated but I didn't like the way it felt) I reduced my use down to 3 days a week for 6 months and then to 2 days for several months, finally down to 1 day a week. My skin looked great, until about 6 months ago when it started getting lots of crepey lines. My esthetician said this was caused by the dehydration.
i dont even like drink. but the question i wanted to ask you is about all these new laser treatments that are gonna "cure" the problem. several years ago i went to a doctor, i live in belfast who used the ipl treatment (cooling gel and elastic band snap) and he told me that i would be left with white clear vein free skin, but i wasnt. he took a before picture. after about 9 treatments and £1000.00 later no change to my face.
Does anyone else have this problem- or better yet found a solution? I've tried heavy night/day moisturizers, switching makeup, switching soap, and I'm drinking enough water for a horse. Its not the end of the world but it's really obnoxious! Any miracle products that worked for anyone?
I work out regularly, wash my face twice daily with a transparent, light soap, I eat healthy and don't wear a lot of makeup. I drink a ton of water and don't touch my face, I also don't let my hair touch my face. I've tried Eucerin soap, changing my shampoos, proactiv (dried the hell out of my skin and didn't do a thing for my acne), and I have an appointment with a dermo but she can't see me until July 27th.
My question is why does it keep peeling off? Is it because new layers of skin are being rebuilt underneath since it was a deep chemical burn in the beginning with skin burned off? It looks now more white and a cross between skin and tissue that keeps trying to blend. The edges are not completely blended in with the old skin and my makeup cracks up sometimes when I chew food because it is under my lip area and it is very annoying.
Does anyone know of anything that might make it less noticeable or help me make brighten up my skin a little? I can almost deal with brown patches (although I hate it), but I feel like this gray discoloration is making me look sickly...as if I don't already feel like garbage. I'd just like to minimize it as much as I can. Make up isn't really doing the trick so far, but you know what they say, when you look better you feel better!
i have also taken benadryl.i haven't been using any makeup or anything else on my skin that will bother it as i suffer from acne very bad and always have.so if it doesn't go away with in the next couple days i am going to go back to see a doctor.and thanks for the advice.
Hello, I've had some major skin issues going on for about the last 6 months. Last Feburary, I decided to go and see a dematologist for some dry skin/facial redness that I was having. The dermatologist wanted to try some metrogel first to see if my problems would clear up. after a few weeks, I went back for a checkup and my skin was about the same, if not a little worse than before. Since that didn't work, they wanted to try a fairly new ointment called protopic.
I'm new to the forum and not too sure if this question belongs here, however my daughter is 14 years old and is getting browney orange patches of skin over her hands, fingers, face and neck. They are smooth and apparently don't hurt. Her friends have said they look like tan lines, but my daughter does not tan because she is far too pale, after a couple of days the patches disapear. She has problems with her hips and cannot touch them but apart from that she is fine.
Docs being human, tho, you'll see as the relationship develops whether there are things that aren't working, and that's when to consider looking around for a new doc.
That's all true of any relationship with a professional -- your mechanic, your dentist, your dry cleaner, your LLMD.
Occurs on face only- start out as raised lump (like a pimple under the skin) It will not go away until squeezed. It never forms a whitehead. It just oozes and oozes clear liquid for weeks! There is so much! It dries into a crusty, grainy scab only to open back up and ooze more. One can last for a month or more. It will NOT go away until all of the puss is gone. Mine will just keep peeling away. Some look like they have left a small pin size hole on my skin.
Could this steriod have any side-effects on my pigmentation?
2. I read that Neem leaves and creams help balance the melanin in one's skin. Is this true...Can it help?
3. Since last year's article, have you encountered any other remedies besides the bleaching cream?
I got a wig, used extra moisturizers and makeup and made the best of it.
If you have great skin to start you probably have a good advantage. Just make sure you spend a little extra time taking extra care and I'm sure that beautiful skin will stay beautiful as it is right now.
It seems like it is drying my face out even worse then before. I am not using any newmakeup, facewash or soaps. I am 31 yrs old and very healthy. This is just driving me crazy! I wash my face with Cetaphil cleanser and moisturize with Cetaphil face lotion. I was using Eucerin cream and that did not seem to work either, it burned like crazy. I am trying to get into see a Dermatologist, waiting patiently for my appt.
Seems like my face is a desert, always dry.
Lately I have noticed how my skin changes color. I know that prolly sounds crazy, except my employees noticed it the other day. One employee looked at me and said "deb, your face looks yellow, go sit down, I will finish up here" Now the yellow went away, but lately I have been getting lots of remarks about my skin tone. It seems to be like a pendulum, even hubby said to me yesterday, "at least your skin is starting to look like its normal color again".
My husband age 59 has been experiencing burning, prickly itchy skin at random times but mostly during the evening. He has the sensation of pins and needles pricking his skin from the inside out. This mostly occurs on his arms or legs or back, but not concurrently. First it was his legs then it moved to his back and currently the problem is on his arms. The sensation will be symetrical, i.e. both arms. The prickling turns into severe itching with sensations of pin pricking pain.
that's is most likely not skin cancer at all. it sounds like tinea versicolor possibly. google that term and look at the images. if that's what you have it is a fungal infection that is often times caught in tanning beds. that is absolutely not the only place people catch it, but common. and it is very very common on the chest and back.
easily treatable. you'll need a prescription.
skin cancer comes by way of scaly sores, weird bumps , lesions etc.
Two months ago I started using a new down blanket and pillow but I also started a new exercise routine and I started taking new vitamin pills. So I will try and keep an update as to the staus of my issue but I am focusing on the down and vitamins, hard for me to believe my body would be so reactive to its own sweat. I will get rid of the blanket and switch off the vitamins for a few weeks and post back.
