Exfoliating scrubs. tea tree oil, coconut oil and sheet masks can change lives. No more dry and broke out skin - ladies and gents it will get your confidence through the roof. You don't need expensive shit either there are some gems at the drugstore
Warning: tried coconut oil on my face and had cystic acne up the ass. Had people telling me.. omg just continue, your face breaking out means its just purging but over time its only gonna get better. Uh, no it did not get better whatsoever. So basically use common sense and dont be an idiot like me and continue using a product because its good for you and works for others. Everyone is different.
Lets be real - white black brown we could all use a little more lotion.
For questions and helpful guides There's always /sub/skincareaddiction !
Trial run on part of your face for a bit before throwing it on the whole thing, so you have a chance to find out if something's going to react poorly.
A light moisturizer with SPF every morning is always a great habit to get into. It'll keep that great skin of yours looking young and healthy longer.
Nice try, TJ Maxx.
Wtf I’ve been doing this for years. Never knew it was considered unmanly.
Bill Burr has a whole bit about how caucasians dont know about lotion
Hit up your local TJ Maxx for cheap but good beauty products. I get all my face masks from them and they do work!
Username checks out?
Those folks saved my skin after years of struggle. Can't recommend their FAQ and suggested routines enough.
I like the passion Draymond exhibits. I equally like how excited KD is to exfoliate his face.
I never understood why coconut oil is always suggested as the oil to use. It is a relatively high comedogenic level, it can cause acne is many people. Shea butter, Argan oil, sunflower oil, and hemp oils are not comedogenic and can do the same thing.
It's freakin' terrible. It's not just a pimple. It's large, red, angry, painful sections of acne that cover your entire face sometimes and make something like shaving awful. I still have scars.
If I don't see any problems with my skin is this something I should bother with?
Ah yes, I learned this an actual important rule the hard way
Oh white people know about lotion, just not in the way that you're thinking about.
Lol forgot that was my name.
What creams have you used before? I find men’s products have a ‘manly’ scent added to them. Checkout /sub/skincareaddiction and look at the ordinary, no bullshit products that usually don’t have a fragrance added to them. If not simple maybe? But I could just be immune to the smell as it doesn’t bother me too much!
Edit- a word
Lol I assumed that's where I was
also, get a squat to potty and a bidet.
That's too much
Right there with you. My face is amazing after exfoliating and moisturising.
"You need to increase the circumference of the lotion distribution" 😂🤣👏🏾👍🏾
Anybody willing to give some tips on this. I literally don’t know shit.
He actually mentions that
Check out /sub/asianbeauty for all things face masks.
Are there any that don't make my face smell like sunscreen all damn day?
Protop: if exfoliating scrubs irritate your skin, try using a gentle chemical exfoliant instead. A general favorite is lactic acid, which can be cheap and easy to find (personal drugstore favorite is Ponds anti-aging cream. Exfoliating, moisturizing, AND a lot cheaper than many other beauty brands) .
I subscribed for about a year. Got my own routine down after trying many different methods and products. And then I had to unsubscribe. It's a lot of information overload and gets a bit obsessive.
It depends on the person. Some folks use coconut oil everyday and have great skin. For others, it's like kryptonite.
Argan oil is liquid gold, I love the stuff.
I use tea tree oil (body shop - $15) to spot treat acne on my face. It's natural and reduces swelling quite quickly. Other spot treatments that I've tried are witch hazel, burt's bees willow bark roll on (approx $20+) and for particularly inflamed suckers Marino badescu's drying lotion ($20) is a trifle strong (can dry out surrounding skin) but effective. It's all about trial and error and finding different things that suit you and to be safe it's best to swatch test first. Also try to catch them early, if I notice a little bump I try to swamp it before it erupts. Coconut oil is good for moisturising, if you have particularly dry skin. Other more natural alternatives include aloe vera and even olive oil. I've also heard that these (along with bio oil) are good for acne scars. If you have oily skin, an oil free (Mario basescu $30 odd) or gel moisturiser is better for oil control. Apparently you should still moisturise even if your skin secretes a good amount of oil, it's just about finding the right type.
Toner or miscellar water can also be good for removing daily grime and bacteria, alcohol free is best because it doesn't dry out your skin as badly and strip it of moisture, I particularly like a witch hazel and rose water blend I found locally for about $5.
I'm not a fan of fragranced and harsh facial washes and I usually stick to good old cetaphil and tea tree facial wash from body shop. I run through my routine twice a day with a heavier moisturiser at night and a lighter one in the day. Diet and hydration also factor in quite heavily so it has to be a conscious routine lifestyle kinda thing. I also try to change my pillow case often because that aggravates my skin terribly.
I'm not an expert but I suffer abit from hormonal acne so this is what I've found searching around. Good luck everybody on their journey to healthy skin it's uphill but doable! Also don't stress about it (doesn't help) and just try to accept yourself while trying to improve because it can really do a number on your self esteem.
Asking for an excellent good looking friend of mine too. He'd like to step up his game, but is too shy to ask.
Damn I feel like this what ive been having issues with but never knew what it was.
Hence, the ‘addiction’ part of the sub name.
Moisturising? What is this? I've never heard of this in my life?! Why did no one tell me sooner?! /s
Sorry but I get so mad when I talk about a condition I have that makes my life difficult and people assume I haven't even googled it. I've seen/continue to see multiple doctors and dermatologists, use two different moisturisers multiple times a day, prescription washes and shampoos, and use immunosupressent creams and steroid creams when I have to, wear gloves when I sleep to stop scratching, and my face is still red and flaky most days.
Take a look over at /sub/eczema to see how serious it can be for a lot of people.
I did acutane for six months. I was told it was clearly cystic acne and they started me right away because most other treatments are over the counter and I had already tried them extensively.
Acutane some people swear ruined their lives or whatever because you're dehydrated and skin becomes dry as hell. But I'm telling you if you get a procedure down you can deal with that stuff and that after it's over your skin may become more dry in general, but not that bad at all and I've been so much happier since. Acne was ruining my life.
This is gold
