>Diet and acne
>>
>>10780654
Dairy can be inflammatory for some, but I've heard it's more so because of the hormones found in animal milk messing with the hormones in our bodies

Also make sure what you're thinking are blackheads aren't just sebaceous filaments. Those pore strips will fuck up your pores in the long run. Chemical exfoliation or a clay mask are better options

Not the same guy, but will those clear up sebaceous filaments? And does it matter if I use a BHA vs AHA for exfoliating?
>>
>>10780723
Not who you're responding to, but they will clear them up for like 4-24 hours depending on your skin. I have used them in emergencies (I had somewhere nice to go after working in the dirt all day, which settled into my pores and made them noticeably dark from a distance) but overall the damage they do to your skin is not worth using them regularly.
>>
>>10780743
Thanks, but was asking about exfoliation or clay masks. I didn't plan on using strips or anything like that, I just wanted to know if exfoliating would get to the same result.
>>
>>10780461
Niacinamide is supposed to be good for lifting marks, looks for something with it in.
>>
>>10780551
That's because it's dry. Hand soap is stripping oil from your face and you're doing nothing to replace it.
>>
>>10780841
Aha is more surface exfoliation in the upper layers of the skin (and increases sun sensitivity).
Bha penetrates deeper and is good for spot prone skin.

Speaking on a personal level, I've never found anything that has a lasting effect on sebaceous filaments but I notice a temporary effect after using an aha.
Others may find different results though, so if you take a look you'll probably find more opinions on it

what should i do to help rosacea? my cheeks are always red but i dont know what to do about it
>>
>>10780879
make-up

use a spot concealer

as long as you don't over-do it, no one will know

try laser, too
>>
I believe in taking care of myself, and a balanced diet and a rigorous exercise routine. In the morning, if my face is a little puffy, I'll put on an ice pack while doing my stomach crunches. I can do a thousand 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 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 aftershave 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.
>>
>>10780860
Cool, thanks again.
>>
>>10780919
Concealer for rosacea would be a bad idea. Concealer is for concentrated areas rather than large patches of redness. Uneven skin tone is what foundation/tinted moisturiser/Bb creams are for.

However for skin redness I think it would be better to suggest examining by the causes and whether it's a form of rosacea than can be affected by diet or steroid creams or if it's simply an irritation caused by something being applied to the skin rather than jumping straight to make up.
>>
>>10780926
I know its from the movie, but does this actualy help?
>>
>>10780974
No actual product names are given so the actual efficacy is hard to say, but in general it doesn't seem too bad.

Acid exfoliation is generally recommended over physical and eye creams are generally recommended to be applied prior to moisturiser rather than sandwiched between two, but there's not many glaring problems. It does seem on the harsher side though.
>>
>>10780968
you're right. turns out what I'm using is actually a kind of stick foundation, and not a concealer. that's what I would recommend.

That won't cleanse your skin.

Use soap as you have been, and then moisturize.
>>
>>10781847
>>10781988

No don't use hand soap on your face.

Find a gentle cleanser, one with as few irritants as possible (there are a lot of online resources for this) and a gentle moisturiser following the same formula.

If you're peeling it's a sign that it's too harsh for your face. Just adding a moisturiser doesn't fix that, just masks it.

Yo does my dermatologist suck? He put me on tretinoin at night with a clindamycin phosphate lotion in the morning for my closed comedones. I don't feel that there's been any progress whatsoever. I go to see him every three weeks and when I come he simply pops the blackheads I have with an extractor and says ok see you next time.

>>10782726
Looked that one up because I can't think of any colour correction that's meant to be worn alone outside of a select few Korean bb creams and is it the redness correcting primer you're talking about?

Primers are still make up, and although you can wear primers alone this one is strictly supposed to be under make up because it's green toned you ninny.

Ignoring those three or so Korean ones, anything labelled colour/redness/shallowness/dark circle correction is supposed to be under foundation because it will contain a green/purple/orange-salmon tint and wearing anything to correct redness alone makes you look pasty af.

So I was looking at my old pictures through middle school and early high school and noticed how much smoother and vibrant my skin was back then. Now some areas are off tone and no longer look vibrant.

I was thinking about trying this
http://www.amazon.com/Reviva-Labs-Glycolic-Cream-Ounces/dp/B000SASZ9K/ref=sr_1_1?s=beauty&ie=UTF8&qid=1451791294&sr=1-1&keywords=reviva+lab+5%25

I quit using all soaps and moisturizers to see what was making my face so dry. No improvement in acne, or dryness. Am now only using moisturizer. Face is still flaky. What should I do? Thinking of trying cetaphil+mousturizer and maybe the aloe vera that people have been mentioning. Good plan? I only get acne on my forehead (bangs, even though I wash my hair often nothing helps) and on my chin.

Any and all suggestions appreciated.
>>
The whole routine of cleanse, exfoliate, tone, moisturize, sunscreen, etc that we've all been made to feel is a crucial part of having good skin is definitely overkill

Our skin has the ability to heal itself for the most part, and if your skin is struggling it's best to try assessing the problem from the inside before wasting money on topical products that don't work or will exacerbate the problem. My skin has cleared up a lot since I've started going easy on it and focusing more on what I put into my body and minimizing my stress

Everyone is different as far as how they have to treat their skin, and for some people acne is just hormonal, but destroying your natural skin barrier with 4+ products a day while trying to compensate for whatever was lost by slathering on a bunch of creams and gels makes no sense. Let your skin breathe

Does anyone know how I might improve the quality of my skin? I don't have acne. No matter how much or how little I exfoliate, wash, etc., it seems like I have some kind of dirty layer. If I squeeze my nose, there's always a bit of white puss that comes out, although I can't see it from the surface. I can see what I think are blackheads, but impossible to squeeze out with my fingers or any tools. Pore strips don't work. Exercising hasn't made any positive or negative difference. Cutting carbs, increasing water, decreasing sweets and all haven't really made a big impact from what I can tell.


I had super shitty hygiene (none) from ever until now, being 24. Is this something I should go to a professional and get resurfacing done to start over?

>>
I can't tell if my skin is too oily or too dry.

I live in Canada in the driest province so it clearly seems to be a dryness problem, but I have trouble believing that moisturizer will help? Ive always been taught that water or oil=bacteria.

I tried the scotch tape test (Rubbing clear tape on your forehead and quickly ripping it off) to see if I needed to exfoliate, and it was almost all white. But even after I exfoliated/moisturized I still had white flakes on the tape after trying the test again. Even with this, I still feel oily on my nose and forehead?

It feels like a sick joke and I can't tell if I'm retarded or not.

Should I exfoliate or keep moisturizing? I have a bunch of tiny pimples on my forehead (Barely noticeable but it could be better) and once in a while I get big pimples on the sides of my nose. I just don't want to have to be so cautious about what happens to my skin.
>>
>>10793356
It's probably combination skin if you're oily on your t-zone and nowhere else.

It doesn't have to be a choice between exfoliation and moisturisation. Generally a good routine had exfoliation once or twice a week and moisturisation twice a day. And neither is a quick fix. Exfoliating and moisturising once won't fix anything. They're routines for a reason.
>>
>>10792062
>should I be using lotion afterwards?

Jesus fucking Christ does common sense go to die in this thread sometimes.
If it puts your skin through hell then it's probably too harsh and if you're harshly stripping all the oils from your skin then of course you need to moisturise afterwards.

I meant drinking the tea. Putting the tea on your face wouldn't do much I think.
I have done a bit of research on camomile but never seen it mentioned as an acne treatment.
I'm not sure why it works but here is my guess:

>Camomile contains a number of anti-inflammatory compounds
>Some of these compounds inhibit enzymes which act on steroid hormones

That second point is probably the most important one but also makes me wonder about the safety of taking camomile tea for long periods of time.

I'm continuing to use it regardless since I couldn't find anything which says it is dangerous. Having clear skin after such a long time is a confidence booster but now I've just realised I'm ugly.

Don't listen to this person.
They're wrong about blackheads - it's sebaceous filaments.
They're wrong about using a scrub every day - physical exfoliation is generally not as effective as chemical. Scrubbing every day is just being unnecessarily rough with your skin.

I've bought it after seeing it on amazon and it works really well. Normally once every 4-5 days and it just clears up most of my shit (nothing major, but the skin looks visibly nicer). I mix it with apple cider vinegar but you can use it with water too

I exfoliate with ACV 1-2x a week and the other days only wash with water... Really don't get acne at all anymore (got a shit ton when i was 13-17/18). Also use 1/2 ACV 1/2 water to wash my hair 1-2x a week. Gives my hair a nice shine and makes it really soft. Using ACV to exfoliate has also cleared up much of the scarring that I had left over from my acne days. I also use the 1000 roses fruit stem cell moisturizer in the morning. Really light skin cream that doesn't leave your skin with a glossy coating. I also think this moisturizer helped my scarring as well. It's good because it contains longer chain fatty acids that can't broken down to feed many of the inflammation causing fungi/bacteria on your skin flora.

Better believe the sheep! Cetaphil's dermacontrol moisturizer is nice, but the normal moisturizer isn't even a moisturizer. It sits on top of your skin and basically locks in existing moisture. It also feels like shit.
>>
>>10800988
It's only so highly recommended because it's so absolutely entry level and contains fewer irritants than a lot of others, so people who have had bad experiences with heavily perfumed or irritating moisturisers and then try that assume it must be amazing.

It's not the worst, but once your start knowing what to look for its extremely easy to replace with something far better.
>>
>>10802082
Then stop using shit skincare.
If you were told it's too harsh why continue with your first bit.

And if you just call it "lotion" how is anyone supposed to know what you're actually using. For all anyone knows it could be body lotion.
You absolutely should be moisturising your face after doing things to it, but if you're using crap on it then it won't help.

>>
>>10803252
obviously
>>
>>10803100
Not for you, no.

The problem with "better" is that you need to find it for yourself through looking at what suits your skin and what your skin needs. That's why everyone recommends cetaphil - there's no specific skincare concern targeted other beyond the obvious moisture element.

So without knowing what ingredients irritate the skin, what your individual skin concerns are and what works for you no one can recommend "better".

Just that better exists than entry level, but it's entry level because people can recommend it without knowing the above. You need to look for yourself past that point.

K so I'm an 18 year old guy, and up until several months ago my skin care routine was just using a benzolperoxide wash in the shower every morning. My skin was decent, I never really had more than one pimple at a time and they usually weren't that noticeable. Most of the pimples I did get were either on my nose or on my chin. Anyway, I went through a couple weeks where my pimples got worse than usual, probably because of stress or something, and I got pissed off. I wanted to try something different, so I tried a bunch of different suggestions from research online but I just broke out even worse. I ended up going to a derm and getting put on tretinoin. I had a point where it got a little better, but in this past week nearly every pimple I had for the past month came back with a vengeance. I finally said fuck it and went back to the BP wash, and the pimples actually started to go away/shrink. I've also stopped using the tretinoin every night because my skin was getting super red and flakey, and I'm debating stopping it completely. Right now I'm debating just going back to my original, simple routine and deal with the odd pimple I get every once in a while until I grow out of it, which I assume I will as neither of my parents have acne. Thoughts/suggestions?

>>
>>10807677
>acne can be caused by bacteria
>can be

Bacteria are always involved in inflammatory acne. This takes place in the upper levels of the skin. Your immune system is not active on the inside of the follicles. Your immune system reacts to pro-inflammatory compounds, released by the bacteria during the breakdown of sebum/keratin, however - and reacts to these compounds locally. That's why you get swelling/redness/pain in the area - a response by the local immune system. A reduced body immune system would create less visible acne in this way, as the immune response would be diminished.

I can tell you what has helped me fix my acne.

Watching my diet. Cutting the soda, junk food, and fast food (mainly McDonalds, Burger King, all the other shitty ones) helped alot. I heard milk is shitty for people for acne so I'm gonna cut that for about a month to see where that goes. I barely drink juice now (so fucking processed) and drinking straight water now. Also, I just bought a multivitamin (Centrum) so I'll see if that has a impact on my skin in four months. All of this has helped with my skin clearin up but I'm not where I want to be. I still plan on makin an appointment with a derm.

Stridex pads are a good chemical exfoliater and salicylic acid has anti-inflammatory properties, so it helps with redness as well.

>>10811119
Few different uses for a toner but a common one that's starting to be outdated now because many cleansers are better formulated is to rebalance the ph of the skin after cleansing to prepare it for the next stages, eg acid exfoliation, and not leaving it too alkaline. If you can find out the ph of your cleanser that might be completely unnecessary for you. Or just waiting 30 minutes can often fix that anyway.

Sometimes toners contain a specific ingredient needed so are used in a similar manner to a serum. You might want one with vitamin c or e, or one with niacinamide.

Some people go for hydrating toners if the skin is particularly dry then go for a moisturiser with moisture trapping as well as moisture imparting qualities.

All depends on what you want. But they're not necessary if you feel your current routine is cutting it.

You'll get differing opinions but the minute you start getting the signs of over exfoliation then stop.

This face wash is god tier- makes the skin soft, gets rid of oiliness, and is light enough to use however much you need. Combine with a light cream based moisturizer (neutrogena with SPF is good) and you're Gucci.

I haven't had a pimple in a year.
