spicytwink asked: Advice for covering up stretch marks?

Covering up any type of scar, especially a pitted scar like a stretch mark, is rather difficult.  My best advice is to disguise the area with some self tanning products.  Self tanners will help to even out the skin tone so that the scars won’t stand out as much because they are a different shade.

If you want to go all-out and completely cover stretch marks, get yourself  a really good, silicone-based primer (one designed for filling pores will do the trick) and apply this generously to the afflicted area.  The primer will help smooth the skin and fill in the pitted scars.  Now you can apply makeup or self-tan over your skin and the indentations of the stretch marks won’t be as visible!  :)

elysenicol123 asked: Do you know a dupe for philosophy hope in a jar

Actually yes, I do!

Philosophy Hope in a Jar Moisturizer - $42 for 2oz

Neutrogena Healthy Skin Face Lotion - $12 for 2.5oz

I was testing this the other day and it reminded me of something that I’d used before on my skin.  It actually wasn’t until I read this question that I realized - d’oh!  This is just like Hope in a Jar!  Hope is a very popular moisturizer with a cult-like following behind it.  It’s really a very basic moisturizer, and its only special ingredient is Alpha Hydroxy Acid, which helps speed up cell turnover and keeps pores clear.  It’s meant to be an anti-aging moisturizer for all ages.

The Neutrogena Healthy Skin Face Lotion has AHA as well as vitamin B5 and E for added moisture.  This moisturizer also has SPF 15.  I prefer the pump packaging of the Neutrogena lotion to Hope in a Jar’s jar, and I obviously prefer the tiny price point as well.

Hope that helps!

pokegirl0581 asked: What is your opinion on benzoyl peroxide acne treatments?

As with all different skincare products and ingredients, benzoyl peroxide could work really well for certain people and really terribly for others!  I, personally, prefer using benzoyl peroxide on my skin, because I find that it gives me faster results than with salicylic acid, glycolic acid or sulfur.  

Benzoyl peroxide is good for surfaced blemishes, because it works above the skin to clear spots and to prevent fresh breakouts.  Benzoyl peroxide is a peeling agent that helps “dry up” exposed pimples and increases cell turnover to clear and heal the area quickly.  It also has an antibacterial property.  I use a 10% benzoyl peroxide spot treatment whenever i get a particularly vicious breakout (if you’ve never used BP before, start out with the 2.5% concentration so that you build up a tolerance).

Salicylic acid is another commonly found ingredient in anti-acne products.  Salicylic acid is a BHA (beta hydroxy acid).  BHAs work beneath the skin’s surface, deep inside the pore.  Salicylic acid is great for people with enlarged pores and/or oily skin, because BHA can power through the oil and it also helps to heal and fix misshapen, damaged pores.  BHAs also have anti-inflammatory properties that will help shrink the size of enlarged, irritated bumps.  Salicylic acid can be found in everything from cleansers to masks and moisturizers.

Neutrogena Oil Free Acne Wash - $8

Glycolic acid is a common ingredient found in some anti-acne products as well as anti-aging products.  I personally use a lot of glycolic acid in my skincare routine.  Glycolic acid is an AHA (alpha hydroxy acid).  These work above the skin’s surface and chemically exfoliate, dissolving dead skin cells and improving skin’s hydration.  This ingredient is often recommended for people with dry or sun damaged skin, so during the winter this works really well for me.

Peter Thomas Roth AHA/BHA Acne Clearing Gel - $54

Sulfur is the last common ingredient for acne.  For me, sulfur is pretty hit or miss.  I find that sulfur definitely helps to dry up and shrink surfaced spots, and it also has an antibacterial property that seems to zap any “up and coming” bumps.  I like using sulfur masks occasionally.

AcneFree Theraputic Sulfur Mask - $8

I recommend trying out products with certain ingredients one at a time.  This will allow you to see if perhaps, like me, different ingredients work better for you than others.  Don’t overwhelm your skin with too many “anti-acne” products, because often doing so will actually harm your skin worse.  Be gentle and patient, and if all else fails, consult a professional dermatologist, which I am not.  :)

Good luck!
