    Clinique Moisture Surge is very good.

    I recommend all the Clarins Skincare products. I suggest you visit their local counter and see what they provide.

    I used to get hormonal acne, but I can really recommend The Ordinary moisturiser with HA but especially the niacinemide (sp?) serum stuff. Has done wonders for my skin.

    Hi does anyone have any recommendations on products or treatments targeted for hormonal acne and marks that are left behind?

    I'm desperately trying to find a solution here...I've had every facial you can think of and microdermabrasion but has done nothing.

    Wash face with mild soap and water. Pat dry or leave to dry.

    Mix lemon juice with egg white and apply to the areas of acne. It will dry and form a paste across the area. Leave for at least 20 mins then wash and pat dry. Leave skin to breathe.

    Can do this as often as you want, acne gone in a day or so.

    Why do you want a product to deal with congestion from products when there is the option of no products at all?

    Anything that doesn't contain petroleum products. I don't have acne, but I do have sensitive skin and I notice a difference.

    Don't know about you, but I need a moisturiser.

    Cleanse regularly with clean and clear blackhead remover liquid or sensitive liquid to remove blockages then you can use whatever moisturiser you like.

    I'm afraid I am horribly pious when it comes to skin. The skincare industry leans heavily on the belief of the need for multiple skin care products when actually you can have more impact on your skin through eating certain things (*) or getting more sleep, fresh air, hydration. I'd far rather take a hollistic approach to maintaining my skin (and it works well for me) than slather it in something of unknown provenance then wash off at the end of the day. Nothing goes on my skin.

    See-horribly pious.

    * good skin food to obviate a need for moisturiser-almonds, mackerel, peppers, any seeds.

    You don't need to rely on "the industry" to moisturise. Currently conditioning my eye-lashes with olive oil. I need moisturiser and hate the dry feeling of my skin when I come out of the shower. Drinking water and scoffing tins of mackerel don't help me in that context.

    Anyway - my advice to the OP about petroleum based products stands - avoid avoid avoid.

    What do you use for sun protection, a UV parasol?

    Coconut oil works on skin and hair too but due to appearing greasy probably needs washing off... Indian people have used it in their hair to cleanse and soften for years. Many peoples use olive oil on their skin/hair for the same purpose.

    Do your eyelashes need conditioner or is it to help them grown back or longer or something?

    Lol, I read somewhere it makes them less brittle after make-up removal. And it does! I remember when my daughter was a newborn and had baby acne (sorry, I don't remember the proper name for it) and the midwife recommending using olive oil on it. Worked beautifully. x

    What Orky said. The Ordinary are very good products and won't break the bank. you won't get any gloop or perfume or stuff you don't need. have a look and read the blurbs - can recommend emailing their people and asking what's best.

    Oh so you put mascara over the top or oil after you have removed the makeup? That is interesting might try that. I guess that is why olive oil was so highly prized in the past... I have used a little warm olive oil as eardrums to losen ear wax and on the skin before a bath, you come out all soft and smooth. :D

    Too fancy. I use shade and try to avoid desert regions.
    I am that crazy sunshine brolly lady.

    Actually though...not that crazy; Bear Grylls recommends hollowing out a stray part-desiccated camel and crouching within it's rib cage. In the event, yes, I would get some sun cream instead.
