Who has given you the best skin care advice?
I have combination skin, but have been using Clarins cleanser and toner for sensitive skin for a while after my skin reacted badly to another make of toner - now that this has healed up, I really need to go back to using stuff for combination skin.

Fancying a change, I spent ages going round various Chanel counters today, and each time got advised a different cleanse, tone and moisture routine!!

Im so confused, and pretty angry as well as their skin care is not cheap, and I can't afford to waste money on something that might not be right for me.

Sorry to rant, just wondered if anyone had any advice or similar experiences?

I usually advise myself trough magazines and books!
I really think that most of the times SA´s tell you what they "think" and it´s not really their knowledge they are sharing, as they are not beauticians or dermatologists.

Analise your skin carefully and trough a month and read about the skin types, then, it´s a matter of trial and error!

I stopped using oily skin products too late i guess. Until you are on your mid twenties, people are allways saying we have oily/combination skin, wich is really a lie.
And i found i got better skin using normal/dry skin products than when i was using products for combination skin.

Of course i get oilier on the T-zone, but everybody does unless you have babies skin.
And that is easily solutioned using some loose powder and some mattifying sheets, no need to use a moisturizer for this.
But that is just me and my skin.

The best skin care advice comes from:

a) my mom: Who, even at 57, has the most beautiful skin on this planet.

b) my aesthetician: Gives the greatest advice, knows my skin like the back of her hand, and is up on all the latest/greatest products.

c) tFS: Seriously. I've gotten some of the best advice/product info. from simply pursuing this site.

Yeah~ I've found that taking advice from a complete stranger (especially one that sells beauty products) will never work. Everybody's skin is too different. My best method is to experiment.

as far as products go, Makeupally.com...

skin care itself aside from products- is thru experience like everyone has stated...

For me its been through trial and error.

I remember a bad experience though, I went to Lancome for a whole new skincare range. I spent £60 only to find it was terrible. Everything was just mixed up - I had a toner for oily skin and moisturiser for very dry skin. I hadn't noticed this because I just took what she said to be right.

Though the best person to give me advice was my mum... I guess because they went through it all when they were younger too

a few weeks ago on holiday in Biarittz I just started to eat really healthily because it was difficult to snack on junk food as I was at the beach all day. literally within just 10days my skin went from being really rough and blotchy with loads of under skin spots to COMPLETELY clear... Then when I got home I started eating unhealthily again and my skin went back to how it was before, so now I'm sticking to just eating fruit, vegetables, fish and chicken and I can really notice the difference again. Also drink at least 2litres of water a day.

Thanks everyone, Im gonna finish the Clarins cleanser I have, then I am thinking of trying Eve Lom cleanser as I have heard so much about it. Then I guess its just a case of trial and error

BEST Beauty Advice You've Ever Received - Quick!
There are some beauty tips we live by that are unbeknownst to most or we may need a reminder of. Let's keep it simple and share a tip or two so that we can all shine on the outside as we do on the inside!

A make-up artist taught me that...

To have porcelain finish of your make up, use BB cream and let it dry for a few minutes before adding foundation. You can get dressed or do your brows while it dries!

Who's next?!
