HELP! Irritated under eyes
Hi everyone, I would like help with an issue I’ve been experiencing for the better half of this year. My under eye region (spanning across the face), have become irritated and I have failed to find a solution. I have tried healing it with the Great Barrier relief from Krave Beauty along with a topical ointment, that somewhat worked for the right side of my face. But it has never been a permanent fixed and the left side is constantly irritated. It does not itch, but are essentially dry patches of skin, that would easily heal with the products used above if it were anywhere else of my face. I have recently started using the topical ointment (I thought the Great barrier relief wasn’t helping) on its own as the healing agent but the irritation remains. The right side has actually gotten worse. I have tried seeking the advice of a doctor with no avail. I feel lost and just want this irritation to heal and go away. Please leave product suggestions for sensitive skin below. I would also like to say that this all started when I began using a Korean skincare routine and that acne/pimples also appear on the affected areas before healing to become dry patches.

Redness and melasma
Hi All. I’ve been battling melasma for the last 10 years after worshiping the sun in my 20’s and early 30’s. I’ve managed to tame it a bit but there is still some significant pigmentation on my forehead. I used to have the full mask around my eyes and down my cheeks but that has faded substantially. I’ve also started to develop redness around my mouth and nose. I currently use ASAP platinum (AM l-ascorbic acid, niacinamide and PM retinol with biomimetic peptide and biomimetic trippeptide with AHA/BHA blend on alternate nights) along with a trentinoin .5 cream every few nights. I also microneedle ever few weeks. I have really oily skin so I’d love to not have to wear foundation. Any recommendations/changes to my routine?
Skin care journal
If anybody has a bad short term memory like I do, this will help! 🙂 I use a mini calendar and mark down what skin care I did on which days, so I can keep track of everything that I’ve done and don’t lose track. Before I started doing this a year ago, I was accidentally doing a clay mask up to 4x a WEEK! 😫 My skin was so dehydrated. 😰 I will admit to having a bad short term memory and I will forget what I have used on my face if I do not writer it down! I write down each skin care product I use, acids, masks and serums. Except for my cleanser and moisturizer. chemicals exfoliants, serums, etc. and especially any new skin care product! To see how my skin has been reacting to it. I just think a skin care journal would benefit anybody. Even if you have a good memory. Another way I have seen people keep track is by writing down a day of the week on each product container, so then they remember that they are supposed to do it that day of the week, every week. The journal is just easier for me, personally. You don’t even need it to be a calendar. A notebook or even a piece of paper would do! 💖

My Mental Wellness Improved Through My Self AcceptanceWhen I was around 13 or 14 years old, I remember routinely taking one of my older sister’s black eyeliner pencils before school every morning. I’d arrive early so that I could slip away to the girl’s bathroom to apply a single black line to my eyelids. My parents didn’t allow me to wear any makeup at the time. Although this smudgy line on my eyelids didn’t make me look all that much different, I never felt comfortable at school without it. My teenage mind convinced myself that I needed some sort of cosmetic symbol in order to appropriately express my femininity. Up until that point in my life, society had told girls that looked like me - tall, Black, and with kinky hair - that we somehow weren’t as beautiful as the other girls. For far too long, I believed it too.Feb. 17
