    Default Ladies and gentlemen, do you moisturize your face?

    I am very curious to know how many people regularly moisturize their face. I am talking about applying lotion to your face at least once a day (morning or night or both). Is it part of your routine? Sun block, medical creams, semen (I know you want to), and targeted moisturizing (dry skin in the winter) do not fall under this. Poll is anonymous.

    Yes, I do, for medical reasons. If I don't and my face gets dry, I get especially prone to breakouts, irritation, and I start scratching which makes it worse. When my face has enough moisture, I don't touch it and the lotion itself will keep my from touching it because I don't like the eeky feeling on my fingers.

    I try to moisturize daily, but I gotta be honest. Doesn't always happen. I get lazy, or I run out of lotion and payday is still 3 days away. Y'know, stuff happens.

    My face still makes its own oil. I "moisturized" this morning because I woke up feeling very dry, but I'm more likely to have the opposite problem.

    I have really oily skin, so I don't use much if any moisturizer as it'll generally cause me to break out. I do use vitamin c serum every morning and every night after washing my face. It makes my skin feel healthy and glowing. I also use philosophys clear makeup as a primer under my foundation or alone when I get dry patches. Love the stuff so much, but unfortunately its being discontinued... Such is my life.

    Yes because the "moisturization" of the skin is only a side effect of more primal desires. I am all about intent here.

    I don't need it, so nah. I do use a lot of different cleansing products and face masks because I wear makeup when I go out, and it's bad for the skin. It's not that I particularly like wearing make-up, in-fact I hate it, but if I don't people think I'm a kid. It's a struggle because I'm allergic to a lot of make-up

    I think a lot of face cleansers and face masks already have moisturizers in them though, so maybe I do to an extent; daily. *shrugs*

    washing your face with honey will leave it very moisturized,especially if you let it rest for a couple of minutes before rinsing.using olive oil to take off your make up adds to the effect.don't apply too many chemicals on your face,especially now that ur young and hot.the other day i watched a documentary about creams and among others it said that retinol (mostly used in anti-age creams) may tighten the upper skin layer but it messes up the rest of it.

    I used Philosophy's Clear Makeup for awhile a couple years ago too..I was obsessed with Philosophy. I had the shampoo/body wash stuff in Amazing Grace, a huge pump bottle of it from CVS. I had the oxygen peel and the vitamin C peel (still a great product imo). I had the mineral makeup, which had this weird puff applicator. I had the clear makeup primer, the "on a clear day" acne products, the original popular cleanser in a huge pump bottle (also from CVS), the gingerbread man body wash..They even had a vitamin C serum I think.. Lol I had soooo much of their stuff! If Philosophy sold it I bought it.

    They've been bought out by another company since then though and word from the reviews is that the quality of the entire line is suffering and that it's become gimmicky rather than the tried and tested core products that the founder originally came up with. I haven't bought anything from them for years except for the vitamin C peel. I just found drugstore products that performed as well for a fraction of the cost. Philosophy is expensive. Also their slogans/words on the bottle/selling point always grated on me a bit. Ok, it was cutesy at first. But I don't care if God loves a good clean face, or puppies, or homemade cupcakes when I'm washing my face. Maybe it was the sheer repetition of sugary odes to body wash that killed it for me but god damn it was/is such a yuppie way to advertise.

    I use the vitamin c serum by Mario Badescu. I really like that its not too greasy and absorbs really well into the skin. Ever since I've been using it I've noticed a softer silkier texture to my skin, plus added clarity. It also doesn't break me out, which is honestly a godsend. In fact, I almost feel like it somehow prevents breakouts, as I've only gotten one small hormonal pimple since I've been using it... which is saying a lot (of course, this could also have a lot to do with me cutting out sugars from my diet as well). It smells kind of bad, but I got over that.

    Mario Badescu products are really a hit or miss. This past winter I had gotten their AHA ceramide moisturizer for my ex after he was complaining about the cold air drying out his skin. He absolutely loved it and was on his second bottle the last I heard. This is coming from a guy who had never used facial moisturizers before.

    I also like philosophy's products, but yeah, they tend to be a bit expensive for my budget. I had my favorite product by them (which is no longer being made ) and I stuck to that. I also bought their microfoliant peel which I liked a lot, but didn't bother repurchasing.


    Oh! By the way, I was in the vitamin shop a few weeks ago and saw some African black soap that you had recommend to a few of us. I now use it as my daily cleanser and absolutely love it! Plus, it makes my whole bathroom smell heavenly. Thanks for the recommendation!

    I don't either. I hate the feeling of sticky lotion on clean skin, so I don't use it at all unless my skin is very very dry (it has to be painfully dry for me to get over my aversion to lotion). But I have always had the impression that this is "what all women do" and not doing it means neglecting yourself. I have bought moisturizer at times because it has to be important, right? I always used it once and stopped.

    Now I am 39, no wrinkles, and have made peace with my lotionlessness (my skin is not perfect, but it's fine and the lack of wrinkles is probably the payoff for my sucky metabolic genes). And I thank the heavens for spray sun block - that I can tolerate (plus the smell makes me think of beach). I am actually relieved that I am not alone in this.

    Perhaps I should also confess my terrible aversion to hair salons...

    I moisturise when I notice my skin getting flaky and dry as fuck, so every week or two.

    Why would we need anything on our faces? Soap makes it dry and then one has to use something else to restore the balance. Moisturizers make the skind dependent on moisturizers. Better to not use soap at all, just water. Eat fruits and berries and healthy stuff. Eating walnuts also makes the skin smoother.

    I have to cleanse, use toner, treat if needed, and moisturize daily. I have slightly dry/aging skin at this point, and I think my skin looks and feels terrible unless I go through my regimen. I've been doing it since I was 15, and haven't missed many days (maybe 20 a year). I have only a couple of wrinkles (smile lines). If I try not doing it, wrinkles seem to be more pronounced, actually.

    As Kim said, you wouldn't be the first. When I first posted here, my avatar was a woman holding a baby (and also I went with "Baby" as my username... why, I don't even remember), so that threw off basically everyone. I think years of studying literature results in a writing style that reads like a chamomile-sipping country dowager, so there's that.

    Maybe it depends on what you read.

    I use it daily regardless if my face is oily or not mostly just for the sunscreen. I've been using it daily since about the age of 13 and I get told I look younger than my age nearly everyday so it must be working lol

    Yeah, especially in the spring-summer since I go cycling 3-4 times a week, my skin is rather dry afterwards, plus the sun etc. etc.

    Also, I come from a very very humid region, so my skin is kind of "adapted" to that climate - which means that basically anywhere else in the world my skin will feel dry.

    I used to, but then I started to think about it and wonder whether I have actually created the addiction/need for it myself by fucking up the natural oil production of the skin. I decided to quit and see what would happen. The first few months we're difficult, but now I don't really need anything at all. Sometimes after a long shower my skin can feel a little dry but the problem usually fixes itself in an hour or so.

    That's because water, especially hot water, strips the oil/moisture 'coat' your skin produces.

    And no, never used moisturizers.

    Default Almsor was

    Once daily. No more no less. I usually do it after I've washed and dried my face. I use a very small amount so my skin isn't too overwhelmed or reliant.

    I hate sunscreen. I don't know how people coat their faces with it during the summer. If anything, I find it makes my face feel even worse; unfortunate it is necessary.
