Hi Everyone! wave

I would just like to say thanks to the EDS forum and its posters for a wonderful website

I stumbled upon this forum/website by chance! I have a medical condition called EDS (Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome) and I had googled for some specific information and this website/forum came up! I have been engrossed whenever I sign on to the forum!

I am 37 and I live in the UK. I have an oily T zone and only get spotty when I'm hormonal. I am also fair skinned. I am looking to experience different products and I am currently looking for new skincare to try. I am also interested in trying some eyelash serum.

I am not at all experienced in skin care so I hope to learn more as I see there is a lot of experience here!

Again thanks for a great site!

EM x

Hey EM, I have EDS too! And that's how I found this site also. What kind do you have? I'm classical.

Hello everyone!

I'm new to the forums here. My name is Amie, I'm married, 26 years old and I live in Cochrane, Alberta. I have a 20 month old and a 3 year old and work very part time as an fitness instructor/personal trainer.

I'm not new to EDS though! I stumbled upon this site back in 2004 as one of the best/easiest places to purchase Bare Escentuals. Since then I have become obsessed with getting the perfect products for my crazy combination skin.

I look forward to getting to know you all better!

Hi everyone,

I am new to EDS, looks like a great pleace where I can learn a lot and drop lots of $$$$$ on new skin care supplies Smile

I am a 36 yr old, stay at home mom, my boys are 6 1/2 and almost 5 yrs. I live in the Chicago area (midwest US) so temps can be extreme. My skin tends to be combination, I have large pores, some surface dryness, more in the winter months because I don't hydrate myself. I have occasional breakouts in my chin area, but they tend to be cyclical.

I do like the sun *gasp*, I don't wear sunscreen as much as I should (everyday I know)
My constant skincare (currently anyway) I love Arbonne exfoliating masque with thermal fusion, AMAZING, I like it better than Dermalogica's microfoliant which I have also used.
I also use Prevage MD.

I am waiting for the arrival of Skingenics moisturizer, which I think will be a long lasting love. I have heard great things about it here and elsewhere.

A general skin cleanser that can change, right now I am using Garnier Pure something that I bought on a visit to Australia in Nov, bought more on a visit to the UK in March and I still have a couple tubes left.

I can't wait to get to know all of you and learn more about my skincare.

Tracy

Hi everyone!

I'm 27 and from Australia. I have lurked around this site for ages but only just joined today. Love love love the EDS forum because it's just such a resourceful place and it seems to be really friendly too.

My skin is normal. I haven't had normal skin since before puberty! It used to be combo-oily-dehydrated and I used to have some awful breakouts and congestion but everything seems to have settled down with the oil cleansing method (various oils and EOs) and using jojoba oil with EOs to moisturise. I still get pimples but nothing like they were before. Yay to DIY skincare! Very Happy

Hi,
I've been reading this forum for awhile (learned of it from the Skin Interactives Board) and finally decided to start posting. This is a great forum!

I'm 51, with mildly oily skin. My skin is not sensitive, so I've never really have problems over the years with products or lifestyle and probably did more damage (sun worshiper) because I didn't have to be careful. That kind of caught up with me mid 40's. I

I've been DIY for skin care for a few years now. I'm delighted to know I can do much better for myself this way and save $ too. I never buy from dept stores anymore.

My biggest challenge is helping my son (14) and daughter (12) with their skin. Both are breaking out more than I ever did at their age - especially my son! It seems that if I try something new, it works awhile, then stops. My daughter, if she sticks with something it works. So I'm always looking for things to try because we haven't found the perfect routine yet. OCM is one breakthrough - and I just today made a batch of Carekate's ACV toner. My son is on antibiotic - might be working slowly but he has horrible red patches that just stay and stay, and always some new breakouts.

Anyway, that's my intro and hello to the group!

Betsy

Hi everyone Smile I've enjoyed visiting the forums for ages and am finally posting. I learn something new everytime I visit. I look forward to meeting everyone. About me: I am 40 yrs old,
live in Texas with my husband, and have been happily married for 14 years. My skin has always been oily, although I seldom breakout. I am biracial and seem to have inherited my mother's English skin sensitivities and my father's lack of wrinkles- although maybe it's the sunblock? I have been using Philosophy, Decleor, and Skinceuticals lately. I love discovering new skincare, bath treats, and chemical free sunblocks. Thanks for the warm welcome!

Hello

I am Pilar and new to this forum, but not to skincare issues. English is not my native language, but I'm quite fluent. I had better be! I am a translator!!!

I'm 39, married, no children. I have always taken good care of my skin and so I do not have any major complaints. I would just like to keep my skin youthful as long as possible without surgery!

Welcome, new faces! You're going to love it here!

Pilar-- I'm a translator too! What language(s) do you translate? Right now I translate from Japanese to English, however, I'm learning Mandarin Chinese so I hope one day to add that to my resume too....

I am a makeup junkie and also make handmade soap as a hobby so I'm really looking forward to being hear and learning new things! There are so many products here I've never heard about. It's fun but crazy at the same time because I thought I knew most of them Smile

Hey Everyone. I'm a 63 year old sensitive skinned redhead from Florida. Always had great skin, but now it is moving south and starting to road map. Sad I have truly enjoyed reading all your wonderful posts - what a fun way to learn about the bewildering subject of skin care. I will post later when I decide what products to test. Confused Anndy

Hi everyone, my name is simran and im 23 years old from New Zealand. My skin is normal to dry with odd breakouts now and them
Well whenever i have had skincare issues i have come by within the past couple of years and browse this forum, have to say i get alot of information here and have changed my mind on which product to order and which not often based on the information i find here Very Happy so all you people have saved me alot of money Smile . Well i finally decided to join this wonderful forum and well hello to evryone.
I am very busy with my university studies so do not have much time for skincare. But then each time a couple of months later when i look at my skin im back to looking for products that make me look good again lol. So yea right now m looking for a good cleanser but something not to expensive. Currently im using the following:
Decleor Mousse Demaquillante - Foaming Cleanser
Decleor Alpha Morning SPF 12 - Day Alpha Hydrating Cream
Decleor Aroma White Brightening Night Cream
Decleor Aromessence White Brightening Concentrate
Bioderma Photoderm sunscreen spf 100.

However when i am lazy at night and dont have much time i end up using silkia camelia oil rather then the concentrate and night cream.
If i have abit of time i would use the epidermx after cleansing following with either the concentrate and night cream or just the silkia.

I also get electrolysis done. approx 3-4 weeks. So i have been trying not to use anything to harsh.

Anyway the past couple of months the late nights and bad diet has made my looking like wel dull and old i reckon Shock .

I am running out of my cleanser and day time moisturizer as well as sunblock all the things im looking into buying.

Sunblock: i prefer to stick to bioderma range that suits me ok and i dont really get breakouts. Any good recommended websites to buy this, also cheap? Beautycentre.uk is not working nomore Crying or Very sad

Cleanser: I was going to buy
Biotherm Biosource Foaming Cleansing Gel
i like this cause of the foam and it was ok when i used it before $36 from my supplier in NZ but she has not got back to me on this so im look out for cleansers

Either biotherm or Decleor. The current one im using doesnt foam as i would like to.
I thought i would try
Decleor Cleansing Milk for Face and Eye
OR
Yonka Gel Nettoyant Cleansing Gel

I cant decide between this two, i have read very good reviews on the forum. In terms of foaming which one does more? or Anyother cleansers anyone can recommend. I like foaming but i dont want something that gives that tight dry feeling

Moisturizer: I dont no which one to buy. Something for daytime wear. Preferably without SPF as i read on this forum SPF moisturizers or something degenerates the bioderma sunblock Confused . Dont want anything to heavy.
I Have used this before Biotherm Aquasource Non Stop/Oligo/Thermal Gel. Which i liked for daytime as its not heavy and just right.
So any good recommendations for moisturizers plus websites to purchase them from plz?

At the moment my skin feels a lil dry. My goal to get that dewy radiant skin look.

Keep up the goodwork on forum everyone

Arkansas, that is. My name is Deb and I have been reading this forum and finally decided to join up. Love all the info. Wish I had found this and MUA before I spent some $$$ on past products!!

I am 46, auburn hair, fair skin with a reddish tone, freckling (but not a lot on the face - weird?)and what I would call normal skin, pretty much. Occasionally, I get the oil on my chin (again weird).

I use all sorts of prodcuts and love to try new things. Currently I am using DHC Whip Cleansing Oil, Ocean Actives Deep Water Squalane, Origins No Puffery and DHC Eyebright Gel (alternate - not sure which one I like best yet), Merle Norman MMU, Diorshow Mascara, my eyeshadow ranges from cheap to not so cheap - I currently am using the new Bobbi Brown Stonewashed Nudes and love it!! I also use BB Bronze eyeliner and love it. I am trying different moisturizers but not enamored with anything (DHC CoQ10, Clinique, etc..) still searching.

I have no beauty secrets really but I do a scrub using coffee grounds that I really like. My skin feels so soft and glows afterwards. I massage my Whip Cleansing Oil in and start massaging a handful of coffee grounds in. I scrub with this and rinse. Messy for sure but worth it. I follow with squalane, eye cream and a moisturizer.

I did just have Restylane done for my naso labial folds, which were quite deep, and LOVE it! Well worth it. I have heard about Radiesse but have been reluctant since I have read that some folks have bumping with it....

Look forward to hanging out with ya'll.

Hey everyone! I just started reading the forums and I think I'm addicted! I'm 19 years old from Vancouver BC and I've recently developed an obsession with skin care and makeup. I think I'm a bit of a late bloomer considering all my girlfriends were experimenting with makeup throughout highschool while I was still playing video games :S There are loads of things I want to try but a starving student can only do so much on a budget haha

Although I have a limited experience with skin care and beauty I can surely say Dermalogica's Ultracalming Cleanser is my one and only <3

Hi all! I'm not brand-new to EDS, but I've been dormant for a while. I've been an avid skin care, hair care and natural health care fan since I was a kid, and EDS is such an awesome place to learn even more. I'm known on EDS for being long-winded, an OCD natural ingredient freak, and a physical sunscreen lover.

I currently work testing software in Catalan, and my specialty is Romance languages - I speak Spanish, Catalan, French, and some Italian, and I study Latin (I was a linguistics major in college). But my passion is writing, as my long and winding posts might indicate, and I eventually hope to get a job writing and editing. I just had a really positive round of interviews and I may have a managing editor position lined up for when my software contract ends, yay!

I'm in Seattle, WA and I live with my boyfriend Grant and our adorable kitty Trumpet. I have family in England and NZ and I've lived abroad quite a bit, so I know what a pain it can be to not be able to purchase the things you want - I'm happy to help other members out with shipping, etc. I also have a ton of samples from many brands that I'll never get through, so I'm happy to mail those to people if interested.

Nice to meet all of you, this is a cool thread - I like getting to know a bit besides everyone's skin type! Laughing

Hi...great site here...lots to see and read and lots of new names to learn. I never heard of so many of these products...it's almost too overwhelming. But slowly I guess I'll get through all of it.
I joined because a friend recommended it to help me get some advice on my rosacea.
