Are you the Anon who posted about SEBACEOUS HYPERPLASIA in January?

I'd just like to inform you that your condition can be treated using both oral isotretinoin (Accutane) as well as manual extraction (lancing & laser pinholing). Since your derm doesn't seem to know this then see one who does.

Drink until your urine is transparent or near-transparent. Thats literally the whole point of urine.

I live in a desert. Ironically, the city I live in has an above-average amount of drownings, because we're obviously not very knowledgeable about water safety. Conversely, you retarded Northerners and Midwesterners live in wetter areas and thus aren't as conscientious about proper hydration, so ignore assholes telling you to drink arbitrary amounts of water. It takes quite a bit of water until you're drinking an unreasonable amount of water.

http://time.com/4034899/pee-urine-color/
>Urologist Dr. Courtenay Moore says a pale straw color - almost clear, but not quite - is ideal. If your pee is crystal clear, you’re probably drinking too much H20, which can throw off your electrolyte balance in potentially harmful ways. “Your body can normally regulate its water and sodium levels pretty well,” Moore says. “But if your urine is clear and you’re peeing 20 times a day, you’re drinking water excessively.”

https://www.healthline.com/health/clear-urine
>Colorless urine is sometimes due to drinking an excess of water, while other times it can signal a problem with the kidneys. If your urine is consistently clear or absent of color, you should see a doctor.

https://www.precisionhydration.com/blogs/hydration_advice/does-having-clear-pee-really-mean-youre-well-hydrated
>there’s definitely not a simple and linear relationship between actual hydration status and the colour of your pee.
>Because the “clear pee = well hydrated” message has been pushed so hard, I’ve witnessed highly motivated athletes over-drinking routinely in a bid to always pass large quantities of transparent urine, in the firm belief that anything less than that is somehow sub-optimal
>Conversely, if you’re always seeing very clear-coloured pee, then maybe you could think about dialling back your fluid intake a touch to see if you’re over-doing it a bit.

https://www.health.harvard.edu/staying-healthy/how-much-water-should-you-drink
>So how much water should you drink?
>Most people need about four to six cups of water each day.

https://www.mayoclinic.org/healthy-lifestyle/nutrition-and-healthy-eating/in-depth/water/art-20044256
>The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine determined that an adequate daily fluid intake is:
>About 15.5 cups (3.7 liters) of fluids for men
(these amounts also include water from the food you consume.)

https://www.onemedical.com/blog/live-well/daily-water-intake/
>This 8×8 rule likely originated from a misinterpretation of an outdated recommendation from 1945 when the Food and Nutrition Board — now part of the National Academy of Medicine (NAM) — suggested that a person consume one milliliter (ml) of water per each calorie of food consumed. Thus, an average diet of 1,900 calories per day would dictate an intake of 1,900 ml (approximately 64 ounces) of water.

>However, people interpreted this as a recommendation to drink 1,900 ml of pure water, forgetting the fact that water is also found in abundance in the other liquids and foods we consume.

You do know that almost 15% Americans work in physically demanding jobs like construction, road work, or agriculture? Combined with shitty sugary diet drinking some extra water isn't a bad idea as long as you monitor your electrolytes.
>>
>>14324584
so almost 15% of all Americans may fulfill the
>constantly exercising all day long working outside
part of >>14324557 even though nearly none of those jobs mean "constantly exercising" given modern machinery and tools.
and not that many of them are even in desert environments, since those are the least populated regions in the US.

so an absolute minimum of 85% (more like +95%) of Americans will definitely not need to drink that much.
in other words... not applicable to most people at all.
>>
>>14324620
I'm not saying that every American should be drinking that much water, that'd be dumb. I'm just saying that it's very dependent on what sort of lifestyle you have. Just because the "authorities" have changed their mind once again on how much water we should or shouldn't be drinking doesn't mean shit to me. I just drink enough to make me feel like I'm healthy. I feel better drinking 6-ish liters vs 3-ish. Every person's body operated on a different level of efficiency.

You need to wash your face Anon, like at least once a day, preferably when you wake up and when you go to bed. The oils and grime on your face are contributing to early aging. You should get some sun or at least take some vitamins. Light exercise will increase your rate of capillary formation and make any scars that are currently forming heal faster. There's not much you can do about already formed scars except
>>14325224
>>
>>14325230
Yeah, I guess I don't wash my face as often as I should, and I probably don't get enough Vit. D. Is the damage already done in those respects?
>>
>>14325254
Once scar tissue forms it's kinda hard get your skin looking normal again. I'd probably see a dermatologist if it's bad, otherwise some non-prescription brands have like oils that are supposed to be good for scarring but it seems pretty bogus just based on the science.
>>
>>14325278
Well I've started microneedling sessions, and monthly chemical peels. I've been watching a lot of Davin Lim's videos on YouTube, and hopefully I'll afford some laser treatment soon.
>>
>>14325292
What are you using for the peel? I think lasers are pretty much the only way to go if you want any sort of drastic results, but I haven't really heard much about microneedling
>>
>>14325327
My dermatologist is performing the peels, he's using a TCA peel at 18%, and microneedling at 1.5mm. My scars aren't drastic, they're classified as light, but in the wrong lighting I really feel ugly.

Something he recommended also was subscision and fillers to get my skin as good as it possibly can be, but I can't afford that now.

I'm seeing good results with the microneedling, but it's still early (had 2 sessions of both microneedling and peels).

Guys please give me advice on how to get rid of oily skin and skin scars.
I tried countless gels and creams in my battle against acne and now that it's died down A BIT scars are a bigger problem.
I stopped using gels because they make my skin really really oily.

I'm in need of dire help, it's the only thing making me look ugly, I'd look fine otherwise.

I believe in taking care of myself and a balanced diet and rigorous exercise routine. In the morning if my face is a little puffy I'll put on an ice pack while doing stomach crunches. I can do 1000 now. After I remove the ice pack I use a deep pore cleanser lotion. In the shower I use a water activated gel cleanser, then a honey almond body scrub, and on the face an exfoliating gel scrub. Then I apply an herb-mint facial mask which I leave on for 10 minutes while I prepare the rest of my routine. I always use an after shave lotion with little or no alcohol, because alcohol dries your face out and makes you look older. Then moisturizer, then an anti-aging eye balm followed by a final moisturizing protective lotion.

I have quite some uneven acne scarred skin from acne in my teens (dumbass), it's especially noticeable in sunlight/strong lights. It could be worse, but it still affects me.

What can I do about it other than professional stuff like laser treatments? I've heard about dermarolling, but I also heard it's not safe to do at home... should I give it a try?

Any ingredients in skincare I should look for?
>>
>>14327415
Microneedling and stuff like that should be done by a pro honestly. In terms of ingredients you should look for I'd get a strong toner (like 10% acid or higher) and something with a lot of vitamin C
>>
>>14327163
Past those 20 bucks you're essentially entering a territory of premixed products that would cost less if applied separately.
>>14327422
>like 10% acid or higher
Higher concentration acids are mostly peels and shouldn't be used on a daily basis.

Spf X means that 1/x of the UV rays get to your skin. So twice as much of spf 15 is much less effective than spf 30

For me, it's De La Cruz 10% Sulfur Ointment. I put this stuff on a developing cyst or white head. It's the only thing that really dries out or brings my cysts to a head (I usually have blind cysts) without scarring (I have tan skin that easily scars). I put a little bit on for about a 15 minutes to 1.5 hours. Be careful, if you leave it on for too long, it can easily irritate your skin.
If the info helps you, I think I have hormonal acne.

>>14323970
I was in a similar boat and I have had some success with these products/routine (I think the most important thing is moisturizing and using sunscreen consistently):
1) I started using hyaluronic acid and I have noticed my scars fading a little bit faster and my skin looks brighter. I use this brand
>https://www.amazon.com/Spring-Valley-Hyaluronic-Acid-Serum/dp/B07FL5528G
It looks like there are waaay better brands out there (I am just broke).
2) Make sure you wear sunscreen EVERY DAY (even if you stay indoors most of the day -- you can tan and darken scars by sitting near windows and taking short trips outside). I use the Kids Australian Gold Botanicals for my body (it is pretty matte, so some people think it feels too drying -- I like it because I hate greasy feeling sunscreens)
>https://www.amazon.com/Australian-Gold-Hypoallergenic-Pediatrician-Dermatologist/dp/B07DG52KLZ
I use the the tinted version of the sunscreen for my face
>https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01M8G39OW/ref=cm_sw_r_sms_awdb_t1_1821CbTGVRKTF
3) I also put lotion on my body after every shower. This has helped reduce the appearance of my scars from shoulder and butt acne. I use this CeraVe lotion
>https://www.cerave.com/skincare/moisturizers/moisturizing-cream
4) I clean makeup off with micellular water and use Vanicream Cleanser to wash my face
>https://www.amazon.com/Vanicream-Gentle-Cleanser-sensitive-Dispenser/dp/B00QY1XZ4W
5) I use this green tea peeling gel to exfoliate

>>14328178
Thanks. And do you have indented scars like rolling/boxcar, or just hyper pigmentation red marks?

I already take 2x hyaluronic acid pills per day, as I read in this study that it helps with anti-aging:

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5871318/

I got a question.

For my face, I currently use a BHA and then wait maybe 5 minutes to let it dry before applying lotion.

Should I be waiting longer? I'm not really sure how long I should let the BHA soak.
>>
>>14328571
As long as it's dried down it should be fine.
>>
>>14328187
I have mostly PIE and PIH and some little patches of rolling and boxcar areas. The hyaluronic acid has definitely improved the PIH and rolling scars. It seems to be working more slowly at the PIE.
I have not tried taking hyaluronic pills. I doubt it could hurt to try!

Anyone gave any recommendation for eczema?

I constantly get eczema on my fucking ballsac and it's infuriating. It gets so bad that it cracks and bleeds. I've tried vaseline, creams, gels, pastes, nothing seems to fucking work. I only use Cetaphil to scrub my lower region. I wear a mix of tight cotton underwear and loose boxers depending on what activities I'm doing. When I'm at home I moisturize like every hour or it comes back. At work or when I'm at work I have to ignore the burning itch of 10,000 suns.

Some of you just /fa/ggots have to deal with eczema, what do you use? Ive been to two dermatologists and as far as I can tell you they're a scam. They both said "yup that's ezcema, somethings causing it and IDK that it is LOL. Good luck out there loser".
>>
>>14328571
If you really want to get into the whole "waiting time" issue you can read an earlier post I made. It contains a few links worth reading through independent of what logic you support more.
https://warosu.org/fa/thread/S14250850#p14256582
Since that post I have expanded my knowledge on the "manufacturer" position with another article from PC:
https://www.paulaschoice.com/expert-advice/skincare-advice/myths/the-ultimate-guide-to-ph-and-your-skin.html
Their argument is explained further and tells that each product if formulated correctly should retain its acidity regardless of what other items are added afterwards. Basically the pH of the skin isn't a factor at all in this at any point. In contrast the popular internet opinion holds that skin's pH as influenced by various products would influence other products that come suite or components therein so that's why letting it balance out over a period of time towards normal skin pH is beneficial in not ruining products that come after.
Whatever opinion feels more sound, you should still make sure that the products are dry before laying anything else further.
>>14329559
Absolutely clear urine is a waste of water and pure inconvenience. If you try to drink as much as you can to fill out the quota of 2 litres or 8 cups and only piss clear then there should be no risks in simply drinking less.
>>14329506
Expensive unless you buy the 0.5 or 1 litre bottles. And with additional fragrances to make you feel more "fresh" it seems to be formulated more as a male-targeted product than a simply honest cleanser.
>recommend me something good.
That depends on your skin or at least look in the sticky.
>>14329592
Look for skincare brands that make products for "atopic" skin. I can suggest these, but depending on where you live they may not be available:

for scars i'd look into retinols or retinoids. i'd say try to go with the latter since it's not gonna give you irritation.

Proper hydration is part and parcel of overall health. If you skin's healthy then it not only looks better, but it doesn't age as dramatically. It's not like water is some miracle substance that will clear up your crazy acne or anything, but it is one of the easiest and cheapest things you can do to help keep your skin looking just that little bit better.

Posting my routine and looking for feedback. It's better but I have some problematic spots that keep popping up.

Dickinson's witch hazel
Cetaphil spf 15 (been thinking about switching to 30 spf with hyaluronic acid) moisturizer

Differin gel at night
And vasanti exfoliator twice a week
I still break out but the spots don't last as long. Any suggestions? I also have a Cetaphil shower wash but I feel as that breaks me out.

I have dry/sensitive skin so washing twice a day will be excessive, should I be cleansing in the morning or at night?

so in the /fa/ rec list it says to use a cleanser and a toner. But i have been using a cleaner and moisturiser. Is there a reason why not to use a moisturiser in the morning? Here is my current routine, recs would be appreciated.

Morning -
Apply Cetaphil cleanser in shower
Dry face and apply Australian creams goats milk moisturiser
Use different fingers to apply 5% benzac on red marks/popped pimples

Night -
Do the exact same thing but apply cetaphil while not in the shower.

Current routine leaves me with a bit of acne on my forehead only. And various pimples in places only shown in this picture

You may want to cleanse in the morning to be as "fresh" for the day to come and to remove any potential sweat accumulated during sleep. Night routines are also usually heavier, the creams are thicker, so going at them with a cleanser is a better way to clean the stuff off.

Pretty much everything sold by "beauty conglomerate" that own multiple brands is shit unless you buy from the "luxury" tier brand. They don't want to cuck the luxury brand with good midrange product...

That's why Korean/Japanese skincare products are so popular, they have high concentration of active ingredients at low prices because skincare simply isn't seen as a luxury market. The ordinary is also banking on that idea.

I put suntan around my eyes to limit more darkening.

I started last month with a routine of cetaphil gentle cleansing bar, stridex pads, then the cetaphil advanced lotion(Yeah, I'm still looking for a sunscreen). My face looks more livelier but some acne still pops up, from time to time. After applying the moisturizer, since I sweat really easily, I need to wipe off my face and I feel like I'm stripping my face with what I just put on. Also, I'm very oily, so after 3-5 hours, I need to use an oil film to remove it. Is there anything that I should add or change here? Also, can I transfer my moisturizer in a little bottle(like those hand carry alcohols or lotion)? Should I sanitize it then just dry them out and transfer it there?

Unless you've got a specific day cream you should really be only moisturizing right before bed, most good sunscreens will have moisturizing properties and you should be using them during the day instead. They'll be less oily too.
>>
>>14337329
If by products you mean foundation/concealer/BB cream then yes. Diet is also super important as hormonal balance has a big affect on acne. Genetics also has a part to play in how clear your skin is. Most skincare is preventative in nature, e.g. wrinkle prevention.

I'd cleanse and put on sunscreen, or a day cream if it's night time, right when you wake up. The idea with moisturizing before bed is that you won't be active and get all sweaty so it had a chance to absorb while you sleep. Look into maybe getting a hydrating mist that you can keep in your office with your blotting paper?

>>
>>14337437
Yeah, you usually wanna leave stuff like toner and masks for your evening (I guess morning?) routine. I'm not super clear on the science behind it but my irl friend works at corporate for Sephora in product selection for skincare and she's always been told to keep the morning routine pretty small, and to pull out all the stops before bed. The companies that make most skincare products say the same thing and I'm sure if anybody knows how to use something correctly it'd be the people who make it.

How do I get rid of this redness that I got when I had acne as a teen?
>>
>>14338374
What's your current routine anon?
>>
>>14338407
None.

I mean Ive been using some moisturizer and cleanser that my gf buys for her but I only started doing so about a month ago because I never really cared about this sort of stuff. I think they are both from Bioderma

I doubt that's enough to get rid of it tho so I wonder what I should be doing and buying. I don't even know what I have is called... Is it still considered acne? What's the correct name for the redness and marks?
>>
>>14338428
Firstly you want to get your own cleanser and moisturizer. Do you have oily skin, dry skin, or somewhere in between? If you don't use a product designed for your skin type you probably won't be doing much of anything besides cleaning off dirt. Once you get a good routine you can start adding and trying out different products to see what you like and what helps. What's your budget look like anon? Also are you in a city with a Sephora or Ulta, or will you be ordering stuff online?
>>
>>14338449
>Do you have oily skin, dry skin, or somewhere in between?
I'd say i have oily skin but since iv'e been paying more attention to my skin i feel like it's "normal" now, cleaner, smoother.. I don't know how to explain it, maybe it's just my impression really, but when i dont use anything it gets oily

>What's your budget look like anon?
I can buy stuff but i won't waste a lot of money on it. Im about to be 26, i'd enjoy getting my face smooth and clean again but the time to go balls deep and waste tons of money on products has gone by, i feel like. I know these things get pretty expensive, what's a good number i should aim for?

>Also are you in a city with a Sephora or Ulta, or will you be ordering stuff online?
I dont know, like i said i never really bothered with it. I'd rather buy it from a physical store but ordering online is not a problem either
>>
Why use sunscreen? Haven't heard about it before and cant find why I should
>>
>>14338464
If your city has a Sephora I'd either go in or ask your gf to go in and ask for some samples. I don't know about Ulta's policy but at Sephora they'll give you little one-use cups of pretty much anything in the store and you can get like 2-3 at a time. I'd start with cleansers and then do moisturizers, I'd try as many different products from as many brands as you can, even the expensive ass stuff, just so you can get an idea of what a really good product can do for your face. You're not going to be able to get a really thorough impression of how each one is going to effect your skin but it should help narrow it down a bit. Once you find a couple brands you like then I'd either cop a cleanser and moisturizer, wait for a sale, or if you have some extra free time: go to every TJ Maxx/Marshalls type overstock store with a makeup section. All of their products are either overstocked, soon to be discontinued, or just didn't sell well. I find crazy good deals on upper middle to low high priced brands there pretty frequently, you just have to go in knowing what to look for, which is why you want to sample as much as you can from a makeup store first. If you do go to a secondary store or are buying anything that you're not trying first I'd recommend sticking to brands that you've at least tried and if something seems too good for it's price compared to a brand name version it's probably a knock-off and has inferior formulation/ingredient quality/or is just plain fake. It might take a week or two to find something you like but once you do then you can slowly fill out your routine with additional products if you want or just keep it simple if you want to save money.

Thanks. So by doing that do you reckon i'll get rid of these red marks or eventually i'll have to add a product just for that to my routine?
>>
>>14338503
I'm not a dermatologist or anything and I don't want to make it sound like this'll for sure fix all of your skin problems, but having a clean and healthy face is most definitely the first step either way. There are plenty of products for anti-redness, and an exfoliating cleanser might be something to look for too. The hardest part is figuring out what works best on your skin. If you do find stuff you like and it's not really clearing up I'd consider adding a toner to your routine. Toners are a chemical treatment, usually acid, that you put on your problem spots after you wash your face but before you moisturize to help remove anything stuck in your pores like dead skin and oils built up from acne. One big rule of thumb is to stay away from anything that contains alcohol, as it's pretty horrible for your face.

Prevention of ageing is obviously the main point, but some treatments require use of a sunscreen to prevent sun related damage, namely when using AHAs or retinoids as they increase skin's sensitivity to ultraviolet radiation.

True, I totally spaced that aspect out. Pretty much anything whitening/brightening is going to make your skin more sensitive to the sun.

Lads, gotta be real here. I used to have shit tier skin. Covered in acne. It was inescapable. I tried every single product, every single regimen, everything.

Then I tried nothing. I didn’t even wash my face. I just showered in the morning and made sure I drank 64oz water each day. I started using an electric shaver with a guard to avoid irritating anything else. My skin got better in under one month. I was just irritating the hell out of my face.
>>
>>14339437
Skincare products should be just a part of your routine. Drinking water, eating right, and not having raging hormones has a surprisingly dramatic effect on your face. If you have especially bad acne skincare isn't really going to be able to fix that alone, or it might not even help at all. It's like putting a band-aid and some neosporin on an infected stab wound. Most of the stuff recommended in the OP is either snake-oil or even counter productive to an actually healthy face, it's all about balance anon. If your balance is not using any products for acne then that's pretty great.
>>

This shouldn't impact what you purchase in terms of skincare.
>Several studies have compared the biophysical properties of the skin between men and women. For some parameters, the same results were generally reported. For example, sebum content is higher in men because sebum is highly influenced by sex hormones. Also, skin pigmentation and thickness are significantly higher, facial wrinkles are deeper, and facial sagging is more prominent in the lower eyelids of men, but there is no significant difference in skin elasticity between the sexes.

what are you referring to? the tuxbell wiki? pastebin? external links?
>>
>>14339912
The tuxbell has a bit of misinformation but it's not blatantly wrong like the pastebin is. Whoever wrote it clearly hasn't stepped foot in a beauty store, let alone researched and tested any product besides what their boomer mom recommended from Walmart. Skincare isn't a cheap hobby if you want actually improve your complexion. Unless you actually put time and effort into finding brands and products that are tailored to your skin type and lifestyle you're not going to get any results. At best you'll be delaying the inevitable worsening of your skin. If you don't have any bad areas on your face and your skin is relatively clear then skincare besides washing your face is just a hobby really. If you don't go all in with skincare you're just wasting money and time.

First thing make sure to wash your face only with cold water and shower with the coldest you can handle. Get a cleanser as well to wash off any peeled off skin and if the moisturizer still doesn't work consider getting something more fit for dry skin. Make sure to repeat the routine both in the morning and in the evening. Your skin should improve if you keep at it.

You need to get products specifically for dry skin anon

Is there any way to get rid of fungal acne within 3-4 days? Last time I had it I caught it a bit late and it got pretty bad but now I think I caught it pretty early and have been using dandruff shampoo on it since Friday. It hasn't really gone away at all though, I'm not sure if there's something I'm doing wrong or not

What kind of book skincare products do you recommend?
>>
I’m just gonna use the dove sensitive skin bar for my face. I don’t have a routine at all so it should help I guess. After researching a lot of moisturizers and cleansers that I could actually buy, they all have some bullshit ingredients that might cause cancer or something.

Can confirm. Only I don't really tan, mostly indirect sunlight and fresh air seems to be enough.
Winter skin is disgusting.

do you guys have any tips for acne problems on the back?
when I'm stressed out and/or eat badly it always goes to my back and rarely to my face
also, face is easier to take care of so I'm not sure how to approach this problem
I'm currently writing my masters and due to stress and junk food my back has never been worse

benzoyl peroxide, changing bedsheets, wearing a clean white t-shirt to bed as the peroxide will bleach shit

do I need a prescription for this, or is it store bought. Also is it something I could also use on my face, as it flames up from time to time, but not as often as my back

i start my day off with roughly half a litre of water when i wake up, and then aim to drink at least 3 litres throughout the day. it keeps me energized and keeps my skin looking healthy

I’m having troubles with my skin.
I have a minimal skincare routine:
MUJI facial cleanser in the morning followed by a light toning water.
In the night i was with cold water and a light toning water again.
The breakouts are usually in the low Zone of my face(cheecks, chin) and are usually very small pimples.
I thing is related to the touch of my face with the bed sheets.
Any advice?
>>
>>14349713
do you use anything after the toner? definitely use moisturizer, doesn't matter what skin type you have. lack of hydration can be one of the many reasons for breakouts.
I'd look into an exfoliator too, personally I prefer acid based ones.
>>
>>14349432
help yes, remove no as there is no topical treatment that can do that.
careful with eye creams tho a lot of them are memes and VERY overpriced. serums and eye masks are an option too
>>
>>14347406
Wash it harder. Use terrycloth handtowels that have never been in contact with fabric softener to dry it off rubbing brutally.
>>
Two questions:

1. Should I use only one brand for all my skincare products?

2. Should I only buy something that has “men’s” written on them?
>>
What do I need?
>>
is there a type of soap i can use to bleach my butt?
>>
>>14351760
not really to both
>>
>>14351760
1. If that brand is really working for you I'd suggest keeping to one line but it's not a hard rule.

2. Definitely not, "men's" products have literally the same ingredients as women's products just they're more expensive/less concentrated.

I have the same problem but not that severely
>>
I had really bad acne for years. Nothing over the counter worked. Went to a dermatologist.
Just started using a gel that is Adapalene + benzoyl peroxide. It is working really well this far.
Acne is minimised after just one week and my skin looks better. I have some scarring but it will go away soon, knowing my skin.
>>
>washing face with salicylic acid
yay or nay?
>>
So I finally bought an exfoliator.

Exactly how does it work and what does it do?
I did notice less dead skin and no more random harmless pimples I usually would get when I'd wake up.

I've realised it was from not washing my face properly. I actually never scrubbed my face with my nails.

I’m thinking of buying Hada Labo as face wash and The Body Shop matte moisturizer. Is it a good starter set? And idk maybe an additional drugstore sunscreen.
>>
>>14321104
are dark circles under your eyea effay? and if not how do i get rid of them?
>>
>>14352715
You’d have to be happy and not depressed. But sadness and depression is inevitable (I trapped here as well), so proper skin care PLUS depressed look is actually pretty effay.

I had mild backne from age 14-26. I switched to silicone-free shampoo and no conditioner 6 months ago and I've had one or two pimples on my back in that time.

Worth a shot for any back acne sufferers.

Fair enough. I drink a gallon a day but I thought I read there was a study showing hydration had no effect on acne at least. Complexion was the wrong word to use there.

Myth or not, you need water. If you could see you could insides and how they struggle without proper hydration, you'd never go a day without water again.

Going without water is like going on a road trip with a car that hasn't had an oil change in 10k miles

Honestly replace all your drinks with water for optimal body functionality. It will legit change your life. I haven't had soda in years.

Tea and black coffee is good too, if you drink water later.

Pic related, ignore the thot - look at the water
>>
>>14352561
Salicylic acid is used to treat acne, so it's good if you get occasional pimples.
>>14352614
I'm guessing it's an abrasive one so by scrubbing your face with it the hard particles should remove dead skin cells that otherwise can give a dull look to your face or clog pores.
>>14352622
Try fixing your sleep schedule. Lack of sleep can lead to reduced thickness of the skin, especially under the eyes where it's already 1/3 as thick as on the rest of the face.

use a cloth when you wash
it's just dried sebum

BHA exfoliants. And what do you mean by "deep"? Are you sure they are blackheads and not sebaceous filaments?

There's not enough focus, take a photo with a little bit more distance to your face and then crop your nose or turn on macro mode.

Correct?
>>
>>14353395
And a moisturizer because tretinoin may dry out the skin and something with benzoyl peroxide to treat breakouts during the initial few months. Niacinamide can also help to alleviate irritation.
>>
>>14353390
Those look like sebacerous filaments to me, blackheads are considerably darker. Visible filaments are most common with oily skin, so no wonder they appear on your nose as it forms part of the more oily T-zone. They are impossible to get rid of completely, but you can minimize them using said BHA exfoliants. Paula's Choice one though more expensive is said to reduce them better than other brands. Still, depending on your skin even BHA may not help and any more crude methods can just damage it.

>Still, depending on your skin even BHA may not help and any more crude methods can just damage it.
So just leave them be?

You won't know until you try! You can buy smaller quantity of the stuff if you don't want to shell out 30 bucks for the whole bottle to see if it does anything for you.
>>
>>14353456
Thanks for help. Maybe there are similar products because i cant buy it locally in my country.

>>14353461
So order online, that's what I did when ordering AHA exfoliant from there. Where are you situated?
>>
>>14353484
Eastern Europe
>>
>>14353485
They have a dedicated website for Europe: paulaschoice-eu.com. The shipping was quite pricy at 15€ when I ordered though.
