Goodbye acne thread
well guys, my skin is horrible, im a sandnigger (this picture isn't me, but looks similar) and im tired of acne, any good advice?
ive been taking 50mg zinc supplements daily for only like 4 days now and frfr my skin is way less oily and acne has decreased a fair bit, not gone yet but i feel it will be in about two weeks, try it senpai
I got pills from the doc, only like £8, they dont work immediately but they spot cystic outbreaks which is amazing, wash your face every night and in the shower, keep moisturing and change your pillowcase every now and again.
>took accutane for half an year
>acne is gone, only get one or two pickles once in a month
>black dots on nose left
Also I still get acne on my beard, I think it's time to finally buy good shaver set.
Actual answer that's not just phony "commonsense" bullshit: try a leave-on exfoliation treatment with BHA/salicylic acid. Your pic looks like mostly blackheads and enlarged sebaceous filaments. Over time BHA can get rid off all that junk and prepare the pore lining to it's normal size. That said, sebaceous filaments are a normal part of skin, you can't get rid of them, just shrink them and make them less visible.
Also, don't try to excise the junk in your pores manually, like trying to squeeze it out or whatever. This damages the pore lining, allowing to be stretched even more when it inevitably fills up again.
I know you all dont want to hear it but exercise truly works wonders for your skin. Also Hydrate
