Skin Problems and Solutions

Yeah, so this week I'm going to the dermatologist again. My face is crazy. It's covered in acne in the chin and cheek area, yet it is dry in the forehead. I've got problems. I still have not found a moisturizer that I am in love with. When I went to see this derm in May, she told me to quit using all the special (umm, expensive) lotions and creams and just use Cetaphil soap to clean my face and body and Cetaphil lotion on my face.

I don't mind the Cetaphil on my face as a cleanser when I'm at home and don't use makeup. When I go out though, I have to wear concealer (I have one that I LOVE) and powder and blush and all of that stuff. I need more than just the Cetaphil. I used the Aveeno Pads and I liked them. I need the exfoliation. BUT, I think the Aveeno Pads might be too rough to use everyday. I'm gonna ask her (doc) when I go on Tuesday.

The concealer that I use that I really love is Laura Mercier's Secret Camouflage. It's two tones and so it blends in perfectly with my skin color and covers the redness. It feels pretty good, too. It doesn't sweat off easily either. Check it out if you have any of those problems. I also use the Setting Powder. I'm going to try her foundation when I need more.

I'll let you know how it goes with the derm...
