How does /fit/ treat and prevent acne, I'm currently working a cardio plan but I can't seem to get rid of these, help?
See a dermatologist, I had pretty bad skin and then (after trying other stuff which didn't work) they put me on accutane for like 7 months and now I don't have any problems with acne it's so good.
I had the worst acne out there in November. Doctor put me on 10mg isotritoin (accutane) and fusidic acid and it's pretty much gone now aside from some redness.
So get that, don't believe /fit/ memes. Low doses work too and don't have many side effects.
I'm convinced it's genetic or happens whenever the fuck it wants. Obviously diet and lots of water helps but I still get breakouts for no reason.
Plus there can be other times when I eat a load of junk food and my face is spotless.
Few little things I do but they could be placebos.
>wash my hands every time I go in the bathroom
>avoid touching my face as often as possible
>flip my pillow every night and try to put new covers on there once a week to avoid grease/dirt build up
>drink around 2 litres of water a day
>zinc, cod liver oil and odourless garlic tabs
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.
Improve your hygiene, cut out dairy, eat more fruit and veggies, keep the glycemic load of your diet to a minimum and do more cardio. If there's still acne after a few weeks of this try benzoyl peroxide (make sure you don't overdo it and dry out your skin) for a couple of weeks. If you still have problems go to a doctor.
1) Isotretinoin pills
2) Wash face with face wash, dry, immediately rub on a little coconut oil to remoisturize
3) Don't overindulge with dairy
4) Wash pillowcase regularly
Did these, skin became insanely good in the two years since. Used to be able to greyscale a photo of my cheek and pass it off as a NASA moon photo.
