Face Products

Just wondering if anyone is using any face product(s) or can suggest a product to give clearer skin/complexion and/or smooth skin.

Thanks.

Vichy Anti Imperfection moisturizer. Google up some reviews, i've had great experience using it and so have many others.

Having trouble finding it locally though.

depends on what kind of skin you have
i'm not super acnefied, but i do get pimples on my cheeks and forehead
if that sounds like you, try clean and clear morning burst. sounds kinda gay, but it works. lol
should cost u no more than 10 bucks
i've tried proactiv and almost every other one and this one works best, at least for me

Yeah I have Proactive. Used it awhile ago back in highschool. It does work but your body adapts to it then it fails its purpose. I'm not up for those 3-Step treatments. Don't have time to stand around in my washroom for 10 minutes.

I'll give that a shot.

sephora has a good face cleanser. it was my ex's and she left it at my house and i started using it. it comes in a pump bottle and has citrus oils and crap in it. makes your face super smooth and smell like fruits. 19 bucks or something. highly recommended even though it's for chicks.

Yeah honestly, I could care less if its for women or not. As long as it works then that's all I'm looking for. You mind finding the name of that product?

Thanks.

What you want is a cleanser that isn't harsh on the skin (like spectrogel, cetaphil). Products containing alpha hydroxy acid (aha) are supposed to help accelerate the shedding of dead skin cells for smoother skin.

If you want something prescribed from your doctor, ask for products that are derivatives of vitamin A (differin, retin-a, etc.). Not only do they work for acne, they also make your skin better. Products like proactiv aka benzyl peroxide helps with pimples, but it ages your skin more quickly so I wouldn't use that long term.

"Benzoyl peroxide is a strong oxidizer that kills bacteria by generating oxygen free radicals. Topical benzoyl peroxide is one of the most effective topical acne treatments. It is highly effective in killing against P. acnes (acne-causing bacteria). Furthermore, benzoyl peroxide has an advantage over antibiotics because bacteria do not develop resistance to it.

Unfortunately, oxygen free radicals generated by benzoyl peroxide are damaging not only to bacteria but to your skin as well. They cause irritation and dryness, damage skin cells and skin matrix, and otherwise accelerate the rate of skin aging."

Products containing glycolic acid (aha) or retinoids (retin-a) because they speed up the cell turnover rate - essentially, they chemically exfoliate the skin so the later of brown skin disappears faster.

There are bleaching agents like hydroquinone that are supposed to be really effective but there has been some evidence that it is carcinogenic, so use with caution.

You could do microdermabrasion or chemical peels, but they sound like they could be extremely irritating and possibly worsen the acne/pigmentation.

Best thing you can do is prevention though. Don't touch/squeeze the pimple and apply sunscreen so the marks don't get darker.

It really depends on your face type and if you're the type that likes an all-in-one or you don't mind washing your face, then do the toner and moisterizer.

An economical one is No 7 they range from $7-$13 at Shoppers and they have 3 available lines depending on your skin type. I've had a girlfriend who went from using $50+ products to that, she swears by it. I've tried it and have loved it as well.

You can't go wrong would be Spectro Gel and/or Cetaphil.

My personal favourite is Dr. Haushka and a brand called O'Derme (not sold in retail stores, used by a lot of skincare professionals and for their clients) but you're looking at spending $40-$60 and it slowly corrects your skin and balances it out.
