I've been bulking since the start of sweater weather in late October, and I've been making all kinds of gains. I don't know if it's the cold dry air, or the weight gain or my diet or what, but I'm a 22 year old man and my skin is right now worse than it has ever been. I already wash and moisturize my skin twice a day, but don't do anything else.
I was wondering what tips and tricks you guys would recommend to get that silky smooth look :^)
I've heard that drinking milk causes acne, and I drink a shit load of it on bulk. Is this true and what could I replace it with that has similar macros and caloric density?
Don't keep your secrets to yourselves you silky skinned assholes. Help me!
Get something with salycilic acid that is formulated at the correct pH. I use Paula's Choice BHA Perfecting Liquid which is pricy but makes a huge difference.
An AHA lotion helps too, Alpha Hydrox brand makes good ones, also at the correct pH.
maybe i just got lucky and my skin cleared up, but my face would react with cleaning products pretty bad sometimes and end up giving me a bigger outbreak so i stopped using everything.
All i use now is warm water, facial scrub every couple days, followed by cold water. my skin has never been better
If you think it is hormonal acne try cutting all dairy (including whey). I did this recently and saw drastic improvements. If it could be a hygienic issue try changing the pillow sheets every night or sleeping on a towel. There are better sites for this kind of info though. Try beddit
ok this shit is getting out of hand. you faggots think everyone is balding. next thing you're gonna tell me brad pitt is balding because of his slightly receeded temples. fuck off m8 with your shit posting you faggot cunt.
>Wash your sheets and pillowcases every week you dirty fuck
>wash your clothes regularly
>Wash your face 1-2 times a day throughout the day if your face feels oily
>Don't use any of that acne medicine shit they sell at the grocery store and for the love of Christ stop using that moisturizer. It is probably dirty/full of chemicals and even if it is not its blocking your pores up and could be the biggest cause of your acne
>Drink at least 2 liters of water a day and exercise regularly
And stop eating like shit. You are what you eat.
Dude, fuck this advice. I can't say that this works for everyone, but try not to put all this acne medication on your face 'cause your skin becomes dependent on it. I used to have acne and tried everything. Lush was the only thing that fixed it.
Vitamin C helps a lot...so I eat a grapefruit every day (or half if I'm cutting). I exfoliate every 2 days. But the key is my moisturizer (Lush Enzymion). Just go into the store and tell the hot chick working that if she fixes your face, you'll take her out to dinner. She'll laugh, you'll get your face fixed, you'll have a date. Did it myself lol
oil from your hands block the pores on your skin and create breakouts on your face if you touch your face a lot, so try avoid touching your face.
also recommend supermarket face masks, they work pretty well if you don't mind having your face smelling all fruity, they worked pretty good for me.
ease up on the moisturiser and clear up your skin before getting that glow.
Good luck man
Fuck that advice, too. If your face is oily, you don't wash it more...because then it just over-compensates and becomes more oily. You have to listen to your body in all aspects of life.
If your face is oily, it's because your skin is initially too dry (I'd be willing to bet your skin is more dry than the average person after just washing your face).
There is such thing as too oily. Oil blocks pores and causes acne. That's also why you don't want to use moisturizer as this just makes your face more oily and causes more pore blockage.
And if you are in your late teens/early twenties your face is pumping out oil like a crisco factory, so your face will generally have enough moisture naturally as long as you are drinking enough water (not soda, water).
If you actually have standing oil on your face its time to wash it. Use soap (preferably organic) and warm water only.
