The SkinStore Surgery: Live Sessions Every Wednesday

Introducing: The SkinStore Surgery

As we have lots of exciting monthly brand takeovers on our SkinStore Facebook page, we thought we’d give you our very own Q&A session!

Our SkinStore Team will be available EVERY WEDNESDAY lunch-time for one hour on our SkinStore Facebook page here so look out for our posts at 12pm EDT.

We will have our Beauty Experts all ready to answer YOUR QUESTIONS on all things SkinStore and beauty related. We can’t wait to hear your thoughts.

Here’s a summary of our first ever set of questions from our SkinStore Q&A on Facebook:

Question: Is chemical peel safe? I was thinking to get one, I'll be 30 very soon.

Great question – it’s safe to use once or twice a week! Chemical peels are easy and safe to use at home. One of our most popular peels is the Dr Dennis Gross Alpha Beta packettes ($148).

Question: What is a gentle way to get rid of white heads and minimize pores? I have dry acne skin but have terrible pores!

Please see the above two products suggested from brands Paula’s Choice and Soap & Glory. There’s also Obagi Medical Products Pore Therapy which is a real must-have:

Question: I'm looking for a new male cleanser which isn't too harsh on my skin. Any recommendations?

We thoroughly recommend the Lab Series Max Daily Renewing Cleanser:

We also recommend Jack Black Daily Cleanser which is great for sensitive skin:

Question: I want to control my sebum production especially on my T-zone but need hydration because I burn easily and have dry skin around my eyes. Any recommendations?

Another great question – please see our recommended products above from Paula’s Choice and Soap & Glory. We also suggest to use a primer whether on its own or just before applying foundation, to even out your skin texture – take a browse through our selection:

Question: I am looking for a skin care product to firm my neck. What do you suggest?

100% you must try StriVectin‘s Tightening Neck Cream.

Question: I notice as I age my skin seems slower to heal and renew itself. Do you have a product that will help?

Our Epionce Renewal Facial Lotion can help by simply massaging into the skin. Shop through at the following link:

Question: What is the best product for me for having fine lines around my eyes on the lids?

We would highly recommend the SkinCeuticals A.G.E. Eye Complex; an anti-aging eye cream that delivers an array of benefits associated with advanced glycation end-products, a major factor of the natural aging process. Shop here:

Question: For someone nearing her 30's what skin care routine do you recommend other than the usual "routine." I have combination skin, and my biggest concern is oily skin/large pores on my nose and cheeks. I cleanse, tone, use an essence, serum, eye cream, and moisturize daily, but I've recently began to research acids. I purchased Good Genes from you and I'm still trying to figure how to incorporate it in my routine.

How exciting you’re nearing the 30’s! This period is crucial to start implementing a decent anti-aging regime to stick with – here’s a step-by-step at-home how-to tutorial for diminishing lines and wrinkles with one of our fave brands, SkinCeuticals. This shows you how you can get professional results to fade and prevent the signs of aging with the most iconic products – take a watch and let us know what you think:

Here’s the fabulous C E Ferulic too which contains a potent Vitamin C serum that delivers visible anti-aging benefits:…/11289609.html

For the Sunday Riley Good Genes, use five days a week as a serum, either alone or under your chosen moisturizer. Great investment here as we have lots of bloggers raving about Good Genes at the moment!

Question: I keep getting little white heads around my chin. What's the best way to go about getting rid of them and keeping them gone?

For the whiteheads, this Peter Thomas Roth product slows the production of sebum which causes whiteheads (and blackheads):

Question: What anti-aging antioxidant serum do you suggest?

Paula’s Choice Resist Ultra-Light Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum is light as water, but is packed with high concentrations of powerful antioxidants including Vitamin C! Definitely give this one a try and let us know if you have any further questions – perhaps on next Wednesday’s Q&A post.
