What’s your secret ingredient to your skincare routine? Share your secrets and join the conversation with Robert and Cara from Lancôme June 23-25.
I have sensitive skin so I have to be careful of what I use on my skin:)
Water is for hydrating:)
Lotion for face and body:)
Lips some Lip Clap for protection:)
Do you have any suggestions?):)
Thank you for asking:)
I have sensitive skin and use a moisturizer than contains a mild acid day and night. I top it off with Lancome “Dual Finish” powder. It gives your skin a natural and flawless (no make-up) look. I have been a faithful user for over 20 years. The best powder/foundation ever!!:womanvery-happy:
bonjour, cara and robert!!! my secret ingredients- yes, plural- are aloe and tea tree. i have acne prone skin and find that this helps me a lot. love it!!! also, i can’t wait until your show in two days!!! cheers to a great, fun and informative visit, my friends!!! xoxo
I have never neglected my neck. It gets the same thorough cleansing, toning, treatment with serum, moisturizing, and exfoliating (on the days when I fit that into my routine), as I give my face every night. I also make sure my sunscreen is extended down my neck and even beyond depending on what top I’m wearing that day. I’m so glad I’ve done this all my life, because I have seen women much younger than I am (early 60’s) who have smooth, wonderful facial skin, but have necks that look like a 90 year farmer’s who never used sun protection.
Robert, I love love love watching u on HSN!!! ?????? Not only ru a BEAUTY MASTER, but u have a great sense of humor too!!! ??????
consistent application of good products :smileytongue: and SPF for that Florida sun!
I could use some suggestions, I am 56, I guess it is hormonal but my face has become hairy with breakouts. Yesterday I made the mistake of using a nair like product all over my face, it burned and I think I made it worse by dabbing peroxide all over. It was like that scene in home alone. Where the little boy screams after putting on after shave, after shaving. Thanks for any and all help.
20 years ago I thought I was getting breakouts again. I started using scrubs and all the harsh products some of you have mentioned. It got worse. I fianlly went to the dermatologist and found out it was Rosacea. Buy using these scrubs I developed spider veins on my face attributing to the redness and making it all worse! They were lasered off. The rosacea creams don’t really work, but changing my diet slowly through food elimination did the trick.
I am blonde with fair skin. I thought the blonde “peach fuzz” I was getting on my face was hormonal too along with my breakouts (rosacea). The laser treatments got rid of that problem never to return.
I also started with the micro-dermabrasion craze in the 1990’s and found that the spider veins were coming back once again. It’s another harsh abrasive, learned my lesson once again and had to go back to the tried and true Laser. Extremely costly lessons.
That is why I use a good mild acid with moisturizer daily, which clears me of blackheads, and most importantly stay out of the sun – the worse skin ager of all!:womanwink:
The best skin care product is the one you use regularly. You can’t use something every three days when you are suppose to use it every day and expect to see results.
I have two things I like to do. I like plain old petroleum jelly for what I call ‘in between places’ – lips, cuticles, heels. Places I don’t have to use expensive products. It works just fine. You can even dab a little on your eyelashes and brows if you want to go out in the sun without a naked face. It’s not a substitute for sunscreen, though, it will fry you.
The other secret is I lie about my age. I add on several years. When I tell everyone I’m going on 73 they tell me I don’t look it. I just say thank you and bask in the compliments. I’m only 70 but with a little luck I’ll be ‘going on’ 73 until I make it, so it’s not exactly a lie. Cheaper than surgery and still makes you feel good. I’ve been adding on a few years since I was 60 and I don’t think my family knows my real age anymore. 70 is the new 60, in case you haven’t heard :womanlol::smileywink:
Hi ROBERT ??
I’m still trying to find one. Everything has so many steps, I want something easy with just a few steps. I would like to just wash and apply one for skin one for eyes. Do you have any help. If it is too many steps and too many potions and lotions forget it!
robert, my love, i have a question for you. there is much talk these days surrounding a relatively new to the market beauty “product” called “miscellar water”. it is being touted as a favorite, “beauty secret ingredient” of makeup artists. what are your thoughts on it? i love going to my local harmon discount beauty store- it is owned by the same company as bed, bath and beyond- and looking around. although it is sold in a some-what generous size, i still think that, for me, it is still a bit too expensive and so therefore not a very good “impulse” buy. it would definitely fall into a “considered” purchase category. i just want to make sure that i get my money’s worth out of it and be able to actually use it every day. regardless, i would love your thoughts on it. thanks robert!!! be well and take good care, my friend. many blessings to you. xoxo
My secret “sauce” – Roberts’ makeup application tips! No kidding! Seriously Robert – loving. you. Keep up the great advice, you have completely changed the way I put on makeup.
By the way, Cara, you’ve got great style. I always tune in to see what you’re wearing.
My secret ingredient is a drop of apple cider vinegar mixed with purified water and used as an astringent after my face is properly cleansed and before my moisturizer goes on. I have rosacea and acne prone skin and this has helped me tremendously.:womanhappy:
