Hi. What cleanser and cream do you recommend for combination skin?

I have a question about hyaluronic acid. I started by using it in the morning in the form of a serum. This was making my suncream extremely flaky. I then decided to get its benefits as part of the ingredients in a normal daily moisturiser. This hasn’t caused any issue with my suncream. But I wonder: is it as effective on the skin? I have a combination skin with the odd spots around the jawline. Thank you!

Hey ladies, I have started using the retinol every other evening and it’s working miracles!! But is it ok to use long term or should it just be in short bursts?

Hi skin experts. What do you recommend for dark circles around the eyes and how can I protect my eyes from harmful UVA and UVB rays?

Hi Skin Experts! I've been researching the CeraVe retinol serum. I'm in my early 20's, would this be a good time to add to my PM skincare routine?

Hi experts, I go to the gym a few days a week and just today I've noticed my skin becoming sensitive right under my nose. When applying my skincare I could feel burning sensation and little red flat patches appeared. Would this be down to excess cleansing and skincare products? What's the best way to get around needing to cleanse more because of working out?

Hi guys I just have a question about retinol, I’ve just finished a bottle from a different brand and it was 0.5% retinol. I want to continue using retinol and I know there are two from CeraVe the Resurfacing Retinol and the Skin Renewing Retinol, I have oily/combination skin but going into winter I do get really dry around my cheeks. I’m also 34 and do think I should start using anti-ageing products also. So I just wanted to know which one I should go for?
