Do any of you have any suggestions to mens skin care.
(pic related i just got this to try it out, thoughts???)
>twice a day
Have you tried this?
It will dry your skin out like fuck. Do whatever your derm told you, it totally depends on your skin type/how it reacts.
I'd say every other day honestly dude
Dove Men+Care Hydrating face wash. Been using it since I discovered it, previously used some Biore stuff for the past 5 or 6 years. Nary a pimple shows anymore, once every couple of months? I am 28 though.
I use cetaphil for sensitive dry skin (as opposed to the reg lotion) and it's pretty good, but makes my face a bit greasy throughout the day. Heard good things about seba med too, but I never tried it out
I do once a day at night, but I got like a 0.06% formula. I also spot treat with BP as needed in the morning and night. When I first did that though, it dried the shit out of my skin, so I worked my way up slowly
this will be a personal hygiene thread now
what do you guys do about body hair?
im 23 and recently hair started growing on my shoulders and below the neck
i'm hesitant to shave it, rather pluck with tweezers but that doesnt seem to last long either
The sun can apparently exacerbate acne and deepen the colouring of scarring if you have any scabs or scars from acne. Plus it's just the best thing you can do for skincare in general. If you only want to use one thing, use sunscreen.
Oh shit, I'm 19 and have pretty much never worn sunscreen unless I'm going to a lake or waterpark.
To be fair I'm a pretty big shut in but I do a fair share of going out still.
How fucked am I evem if I start using SPF 30 every time I leave the house tomorrow?
And what do I do if I'm going to be out for more than 2 hours? Take the whole fucking bottle with me for fucks sake?
This stuff is GOAT. Esp the facial moisturizer.
I'm using Bioderma.
It's not cheap but works good.
keep in mind thats a body sunscreen its gonna be heavier than what u use on ur face. go to the acne section of any drugstore and look for like neutrogena or whatever moisturizer and check that it has an spf rating.
Its quite expensive here,
Is it really worth? I have some acne, and some acne scars. My skin is not good at all, but moisturizer and changing pillow covers dont work. I was thinking about this aztec secret clay thing. Anyone knows if its good?
It will either work miracles on your face or cause you to break out even worse.
It works pretty well for me. I use it once a week.
When you take it off your face is going to be super red, so don't get scared.
Make sure you wash it off thoroughly, possibly using an exfoliant to ensure it doesn't clock your pores. That's probably why so many people start breaking out when they use it.
This is true.
That could be a factor. It actually has specific instructions on the back to only leave it on for 10 minutes if you have sensitive skin. Basically, you'd only be letting it half dry. If your skin isn't that sensitive, leave it on for 20.
I think I'm actually going to start leaving it on for the 10 since it's been hurting when I wash it off. :/
I have 90% perfect skin, no blemishes, but sometimes it feels dry in certain areas, and every month or two i will get a slight bump or two. I'm wondering if there's any skincare routine with a single product? Like a moisturizer or sunscreen? I'm happy with the way my skin looks but I'd like it to be smoother.
I used to get really dry skin around my nose and eyebrowns all the time, it was fucking disgusting and most moisturizer only helped a little for a couple of hours. Some months ago i went full fuck it and stopped using any shit at all, just water . First days where hell, dry skin falling of my face like its fucking christmas. My face is now soft and nice like a peach
Went on holiday to portugal for a few days and had a terrible breakout.
What do? Pop it or leave it? It's been like that for like 4 days now and it's bothering me ;_;
Is this rosacea? It gets worse in the winter and goes somewhat away in the summer so I always thought it was windburn. What should I get to help with this pls help /fa/
>tfw 25 and still battling acne
wash my face daily with 10% benzyl peroxide wash
and use 10% benzyl peroxide acne cream
if i stop either of these for a day or two i break out like fucking crazy
got crazy potmarked skin at this point
loads of bacne i can only control with daily application of selsun blue
If you ever get pimples, you should do a course of accutane.
I was always told not to because I didn't have acne, just sporadic pimples. Did it anyway, was dry as fuck for about 3 months and after that my skin is completely cured. I almost never put products on my skin anymore, just cleaner when it feels dirty (usually after drinking) and moisturiser maybe twice a month if it feels dry.
yeah, i did a long time ago when i was like 15, i should probably drop by again now that its not improved in so long
mind you, i'm not exactly helping it
>dont exercise at all
>diet isnt stellar
>very rarely outside in the sun
but once i get my own place i can improve on these a lot
Did they put you on any medication back then? You need something better than a medicated face wash. Heavy and ongoing acne isn't going to be helped with better diets and exercise generally (though you should still do those things anyway).
they did indeed put me in medicated acne cream, and i think there was some manner of pills? i dont remember
but yeah i should hit him up again, assuming that same doctor is still around
I've started to put interest in my skincare for like a month now, and I've seen progress. But, strangely, a few pimples appeared on my face now. Am I doing something wrong?
I searched for the right way to shave, I moisturize my skin, I wash my face twice a day and I also use exfoliant once a week.
i tested over 100 products, different diets and every little suggestion you can find on the web and NOTHING DID CHANGE ANYTHING.
all products are 100% placebo and only consumer puppets buy this shit.
your body either heals it by itself or you are stuck with shit skin thanks to genetics like myself.
I recently had a conversation with my dermatologist about skin and haircare products and he told me that basically all skin and haircare products on the market are shit. ESPECIALLY products that try to sell you anti-wrinkle this and that. Now the reason that most of these products don't work isn't because they're completely bullshit, it's that the ingredient that is supposed to do what they say is put into the product at very low doses. On the other hand there's also products that relieve for instance acne for a little bit, but not always completely causing you to keep buying the junk.
Most products are shit. Go see your dermatologist for answers about your skin.
I use the Clean and Clear brand as well. For the price, it works extremely well. As a college student, I can't exactly be dropping 50 bucks on a small bottle of cleanser.
This is true for many things, but a lot of products work extremely well without the "if you stop using it for 12 hours you become pizza".
UV rays aren't strictly an outdoor "threat".
Okay I used to have terrible bacne and moderate face acne. I tried EVERYTHING from home remedies (lemon juice masks, egg yolk masks, etc) to OTC products found everywhere. My acne started to improve after I started looking to my habits rather than the products I'm using. If you start to eat healthier, and work out (stress relief) you'll feel better. Once I stopped touching my face and switching bed sheets more often, I saw little improvements as well. Finally, I completely stopped worrying about all of the extra stuff people use for their acne. (toner, creams, etc). I'm not bashing those who do use these methods but I've come to the realization I've been using too much shit on my face. I minimized what I used. I used a cleanser, exfoliate every other day along with a clay mask at night every other day and a moisturizer.
tl;dr -- Everyone's acne is different. (Stress, genetic, hormonal) Lifestyle isn't going to give you a clear face, but it's definitely going to affect you later down the road in one way or another. Your body works on what you put into it. You do the math. Keep an easy regime that you STICK TO. That is the NUMBER 1 most important habit you must build.
This shit right here works wonders
I'm actually just about out of it, gonna have to order again.
>Constant oily skin
>acne/pimples go wild for about 5 days twice a month.
>eat clean and work out
>clean face morning, noon, night, after workout
>change pillow case frequently
I need something to stop them all together, don't care if I have to apply everyday and I can't skip a day. Ausfag needs some brand/routine suggestions.
how do i make my face more smooth, even colored and less blotchy
Are such things really necessary if you're heterosexual, have acceptable skin and eat healthy?
It's a cold night back from the strip mall and you tuck your hands into the ill-fitting peacoat pockets. The cheap product combined with the humid, smoggy air reduces your HY to a pathetic state. Dejected, you cut through an alley on the way to your dingy studio you share with your friend from community college. A thug brandishing a snub nose .40 accosts you. "Wallet and phone, make it quick!" An autistic grin smears across your face as you reach for your /fa/ approved knife. Turning around too quickly makes you trip over your fake geos's extra large toe-box. On your way down to the ground the pink pen knife betrays you, accidentally slashing a major artery on your neck.
Spewing blood, you only stutter out, "I'm always dressed in Rick and ..." before bleeding out.
The hoodlum steps over the jizz smelling blood pooling around your body, grabs your Gucci wallet, leaves your Motorola razor and flees.
The next day, a side article in the Los Angeles Times titled "Hate Crime on the Rise?" reads:
Local homosexual and loner OP found dead at the seen. Police interviews with anon quotes, "yeah that guys fits were shit."
