Hey! I have somewhat combination skin, but I use prescription tretinoin and so my skin can get easily dry/dehydrated or irritated. La Roche-Posay Cicaplast Balm B5 is my favorite nighttime moisturizer—I also use it in the AM during winter time with no issues. It has a rich consistency, great ingredients and I wouldn’t describe it as being greasy.
Aloe works for the pain, but for the actual skin, I use cicaplast balm from la roche posay. it is expensive, but you hardly need any. i have extremely pale skin so i burn very easily and this stuff whitens it so well. i’ve escaped most burns with just a few leftover freckles.cicaplast balm :))
La Roche Posay Cicaplast Baume is the only thing that doesn’t irritate my skin/break me out/break the bank. It’s amazing. It’s thick as heck, so be forewarned. You’ll probably want to look into an occlusive as well.

i use a tiny bit of pure shea butter (warmed up in the hands first) first thing every morning, and a few small dabs of a d-panthenol repair balm before bed.
It’s La Roche Posay Cicaplast. Very popular product on this sub.

Have you tried La Roche Posay Cicaplast Baume B5? People on this sub sing its praise all the time and I can attest to its healing powers. It is a healing balm for extremely dry, irritated or allergic skin.
I had a really bad flare on my face for a few months that looked very similar. I tried so many creams, OTC and prescription. Nothing helped. I found a cream on Amazon that cleared it up within a week. It didn't help the severe eczema on my hands, but it definitely saved my face.

I use a panthenol (Vit. B5) based cream. Research panthenol for skin growth especially used in a clincal setting skin burns. It’s supposedly a great restorative supplement. This is what I use. Can buy it from Amazon.

The one with sunscreen it's not available in the US, but the regular one you can also find at Target.
I only started using the one with sunscreen after my face got better, the results were from the regular one.
Ugh, allergic reactions are the woooorst. I had one a few months ago where my eyes swelled shut and I was on prednisone and using hydrocortisone, which I'm sure screwed up one of my cycles. You could try Cicaplast on the angrier spots... I find it really soothing. I hope you start to feel better!!
On another note, I'll be curious to see how mucinex works for you. I'm intruiged, but haven't tried it yet. Good luck during FW!

Is this the stuff?
is $14.99 for 40ml (1.35 fl oz) a decent price?
Wow! I use all the La Roche Posay stuff but haven't tried this. Is it this one? [link]
Well aware, but I've ordered from this source three times and have had no problems. Here's the link for anyone interested!
Ok would these products work? La Roche [link] The CeraVe [link] and the Benzoyl product [link]
Can't take one currently, but here's two links:
This destroys redness. Be careful not to get any water into the tube.
Thank you so much for jumping in, really appreciate this well-thought out response!
> For dry and flaky skin you want a heavy, thicker moisturizer rather than a lotion which has a lot of water in it. Out of the two creams you picked either really works, you just said you wanted to try urea. There isn't a right answer you should just pick whatever you want to try and if you don't like it switch it up after you finish. The cream should work for you as a moisturizer regardless of if you have eczema, it's just formulated to be particularly moisturizing for eczema prone skin. I don't know if it will help with the discoloration unless it's due to dry/itchy skin. Personally urea doesn't work for me but people have great results with it so there isn't a reason not to try it especially with the dry winter season coming up.
It's kind of weird to be honest, my neck is the itchiest as compared to the rest of my skin (face, neck, and chest), but I don't really do anything to it by way of applying products, so I'm not sure what's causing this. Perhaps it's not proper sunscreen application?
In any case, I'll definitely make sure to pick a product that's heavy and not a lotion! Given that it's quite heavy, would it be a nighttime only application? And if so, how would it generally fit into a routine (e.g., before/after a certain product)? Or is it the penultimate step before adding an occlusive?
If I may get your thoughts on one final product, do you have any thoughts on La Roche Posay Cicaplast Baume? I've read that that can help a lot with dry/flaky/itchy skin, so I'm just curious if you have any experience with it or whatnot.
In the end, I think I'll be choosing between that LRP Baume, Eucerin Advanced Repair Cream, or Eucerin 5% Urea.
> The liquid gold isn't a great day moisturizer in my experience. It's mostly oils so you get a very oily finish and it has a noticeable yellow tint to it from the ingredients so if you have fair-medium skin you'll be slightly yellow/orange. It is better as a PM moisturizer or layer for most people. Maybe you can try a sample from people you know before purchasing or look at some video/image reviews to see the tint. If you want to try niacinamide the same company also makes a niacinamide serum which works fine for day.
So if I have combo skin (oily t-zone, regular u-zone), would I gain any benefit from using the moisturizer given that it's mostly oils? In other words, since I have oil on my forehead and nose, would adding more oil cause any bad effects to occur?
What are common products that people use to layer with it if one does use it as an AM product? Would it just be another moisturizer?
And to be honest, I might as well try the whole thing now since I'm indoors most days so I'm cool with any slight tints that occur. Worst case I know someone who likes it so I could give it to them. Definitely gonna check out their niacinamide product (Rewind, I think?) both because I'm interested in using a niacinamide serum, and free shipping, haha. Can their niacinamide serum be used at night as well?
With regards to the tint, however, is it some sort of glaring side effect? Can it cause permanent damage of some kind (e.g., permanent dying)?
If I may ask, do you have any experience or thoughts on the other products Stratia offers? They seem like a super cool brand that offers a nice variety of products, from nighttime retinols to vitamin C serums, so I'd love to get the DL from someone as knowledgable as yourself!
how would it fare with possible acne type rosacea. This one ?https://www.amazon.com/Roche-Posay-Cicaplast-Baume-Multi-Purpose-Butter/dp/B0060OUV5Y
A layer of Aquaphor as your final step in your nighttime routine. Also maybe La Roche Posay Cicaplast Baume B5?
For a physical barrier, check out hydrocolloid patches. I like the COSRX Acne Patch, but there are tons of cheap options on Amazon and at drugstores. I sometimes pick at my face, too, and these help cover the spots so I can’t pick at them. You can even get hydrocolloid bandages to cut to size for larger areas.
hi there! i'm asian as well, and think that you have a lot of room to grow :~)
1) for the hair, i agree with many of the other commenters regarding bangs -- however, i don't think the typical straight across wispy bang is the best move. instead, maybe look into "Bardot Bangs" or "Curtain bangs" !! they're a longer full bang parted in the middle and they're amazing for framing the face and generally flattering people's face shapes.
2) skin is a bit finnicky, but can be worked with! invest in a good nighttime routine -- sleeping time is when your skin revives itself, so nourish it before bedtime for best results. look into AHA and retinol. for bumps, i personally use Drunk Elephant's Framboos Glycolic Acid, followed by Sunday Riley's Good Genes, followed by La Roche-Posay Cicaplast Baume B5 Balm (only 15 on amazon!!). good skin in a couple of bottles.
3) finally, if you ever become interested in make-up, please don't feel the need to over-do it. most actual make-up artists focus on three key things: brows, lashes, lips. heavy eyeliner tends to make eyes seem more closed off than they are, whereas lashes open the eye up really beautifully. if you have asian lashes (short, straight, go down naturally) like me, however, consider getting a lash perm in lieu of extensions :~) i've been getting mine permed for like, 4 years, and it's seriously my favourite beauty trick. brows are also easily taken care of -- please don't fall for the idea that sparse brows = don't get them threaded. more often than not, messy brows make for the appearance of sparser brows because the eye can't follow a distinct line. getting them threaded/shaped, though actually getting rid of hair, creates the illusion of both a neater face and stronger brows. just ask the threader if they offer natural tinting as well!!
the best of luck :~)
