Anything on this list. How ever, some people don't need to exfoliate. Simply washing thier face with soap (like myself) in the shower is enough.

Had mild acne on my face, back, and ass. Read that high doses of vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid) could help. Started taking 3g/day. Acne disappeared after a week without any BPO, even on my back/ass. My skin is noticeably less oily overall.

I'm skeptical of vitamins in general but this really worked for me.

>>35819417
stop shaving against the grain. Facial hair grows in different directions. I don't mean one goes up and another goes down; I mean they grow down at different angles for example, the hair on my chin grows at a different angle than my stash. You need to figure out the angle its growing at and shave with it, not against it.

back acne can be caused by grease. Everyone's different so you're going to figure which of the following works

1) only soap back
2) soap and moisturize

>>35819525
It's made all the worse by the fact that I wear glasses from the moment I wake up till the moment I go to bed, and I'm very careful not to accidentally smudge them, meaning I tend to not touch my nose if I can at all help it in case I get a fingerprint on the lens. You'd be surprised with the amount of oil and sweat that can build up on the skin if you don't wipe it as often as you should, especially doing a very labour intensive job.
>>
>>35819461
>>35819525
wash your face and then do this:
1 tbsp gelatin
1 tbsp milk
mix well, microwave for approx. 10 secs
spread a thin layer of the smelly paste on your nose and let it dry (15-30min)
when dry, pull it off and enjoy all that shit that comes off with the nosemask

works even better if you wash you face with warm or steam your face to open the pores a bit
>>
>>35819461
>>35819525
You could use some kind of wash with acid to remove it from what i've read, but personally I use a nose strip ONCE. I repeat ONCE because if you remove the blackheads there is no need to continiously use those strips. your nose needs those hairs on the nose.

After that normally use an exfoliating wash or acne-free wash as I mentioned here: >>35819352

>>35819557
I wouldn't recommend it. It seems to be a treatment for itchy skin or a rash. Use an anti-acne face wash instead.

'pimples' appear in areas of controversial hair growth?

>no shit

had this problem a while back... shave properly, hot water etc...

Used to use SpectroGel, made skin feel great, etc but wasn't cutting it...

Eventually switched to Cleanand Clear morning burst (any of the colors), started with Orange and now I like all, especially orange, green, blue.

Sometimes for those areas you mentioned I rub in a little bit of the clean and clear advanced spot (clear) gel... It sometimes burns/tingles as expected on the 'pimples'... just make a dot, rub it in over that small area like spot-lotion.

It all works like a charm.

Don,t wash your face 'too hard'.... the WATER is rinsing our face, not your hands. Be gentle.

P.S. rub the facewash in to the affected areas gently and in a somewhat circular motion. Make sure to rinse 'like nobody's business' but remain gentle as above. Then, no pimples or ingrown hair bumps.

You're welcome.
>>
>>35819431

P.S. I now use OldSpice Swagger shave gel...
if not I would've been using Nivea-sensitive or some shit. Smells good, leaves skin feeling great, no major tightness or dryness in the minutes or hours following shave.

Cold showers or wash your face in cold water after you've showered.

Ever since I started doing that my pores have gotten smaller and my skin slightly better. I also made some other changes trying to take better care of my skin, but broscience will have me believe that the cold water closes the pores or something.

I've seen results. Doesn't hurt to try it

please respond
>>
>>35822217
Not OP, but I did minoxidil treatment myself. It works but be careful for unwanted hair growth, blood pressure issues, etc, as those are real and likely. My chest and around my nipples especially started to show a few darker hairs growing during it and I felt the hair on my forehead / near my eyebrows was kind of creeping up too.

Did it work on my facial hair though? I feel like my beard got a little "thicker" but the one spot I was especially looking to fix is still there although I feel not noticeable enough to warrant any action.

Do note I have dirty blonde hair, my eyebrows are dark but my beard is literally white in some places and dark in others so if you have actual dark hair it will probably work better for you.

I have these extremely small pimples on my forehead, sometimes they grow just big enough that I can pop them and just wait for the scab to fall off. There are still many that remain unpopable, how do I get rid of these? My skin is not very oily, I make sure to moisturize every morning after washing, and I wash my face 2-3 times a day. I have no pimples any where else. I keep my hair out of my forehead so it can't be that.

Get a shaving brush (I prefer boar because it exfoliates better), some good shaving cream, and a decent safety razor (the Merkur 34c is a good starting point), watch YouTube videos on how to shave with a safety razor.

If you need any more info go to badgerandblade.com
>>
>>35822455
>>35823468
I've been using a safety razor to shave for the past year or so and I can honestly say that it is, short of getting a professional straight razor shave, one of the best methods of personal shaving you can do.

There are a lot of benefits to shaving using a safety razor. For me, the biggest ones are probably cost and skin care. Let me explain:

Shaving is straightforward. Essentially, you're taking a super sharp blade and cutting the hair off your face with it. When you envision this simple strategy, you might be saying to yourself, "Well, the modern disposal companies must have it right then. After all, more blades is better right?". Wrong.
If shaving is a necessity to you then it's also one of your biggest enemies of your skin. If you're to follow that logic, then you're not doing yourself a service by scraping your face with more blades than you need to. The soap these same companies push out also contain a lot of chemicals that are pretty bad. Add all this up and you got yourself a pretty bad recipe for skin care.
>>
>>35824681
During the shaving process, the edge of the blade is gliding across the surface of your skin and cutting the hair as close to the skin as the blade allows. This process accomplishes two things: cutting the hair of your skin and exfoliating your skin via razor glide (protip: exfoliating is good as it removes dead skin).

Shaving using a single-blade razor is optimal since it prevents a lot of the issues that arise with modern disposable razors.
-One of the biggest ones right off the bat is the price. Over the long-term, you pay less over time safety razor blades than you do disposable blades. With each new packet of disposables costing upwards of $20+ depending on the brand, you save a lot of money buying simple razor blades in bulk which can last years even if you shave everyday.
-A single razor blade is better for the skin. Why? Companies would like for you to believe that more is better, but in the case of shaving less is more. Since you have more blades gliding across the skin that could mean a potentially cleaner shave, but it also means you're obviously increasing the amount of blades your skin is coming into contact with. This means a potential increase in irritation, cuts, over-exfoliation, etc. Basically, it's the difference between scraping off a single layer of skin cells with a single blade than perhaps 2-3 with 4+ blades.
>>
>>35821363
Take a box cutter and cut them off
>>
>>35824681
>>35824783
-The products you use while shaving will improve your shave drastically. Modern shaving techniques with disposable razors favor convenience, and it's good if you're looking to get out the door in a jiffy but it also wreaks havoc on your skin. With traditional shaving techniques it's recommended you use a high-quality shaving soap with hot water and a brush.

The soap itself is a major player in keeping your skin healthy, since it lacks the nasty chemicals and propellants in canned foaming soap and many companies produce specialty soaps for gentle skin, and with a variety of natural additives like avocado oil.

The brush is also good for your skin since, as a part of the ritual, it will massage the skin and open the pores as well as loosening up the hair follicles and making it easier for the soap to reeaally get in there.

And just because I don't come off as a humongous hipster douche, I'll just state that it's definitely not for everyone and is incredibly time consuming. With disposable razor shaving, it'll probably take you less than 8 whole minutes from application of foam to rinsing off your face. Between prepping the safety razor, getting the brush wet and hot, applying the soap properly, shaving, and cleaning everything, you're looking at more than 10+ minutes which is a lot of time if you're in a hurry in the mornings.

Price is also a factor. It's cheap in the long run, but the initial investment will probably have you seeing a $50+ price range for the initial equipment.

If you ARE interested, there are plenty of sites online that will gladly help you pick and choose the best equipment and learn the best techniques for shaving.

I personally use a pricey safety razor kit and brush, but I managed to find a bulk pack of Dorco brand razor blades on Amazon for 10 bucks or so (which will last me until I die probably) and shaving soap from Taylor of Old Bond Street which is exceptionally good for my skin type.

If it was good enough for my grandfather it's good enough for me. Hope this helps.

>Passed out drunk last night

Today I wake up and find I've got a kind of red rash or breakout of spots on my neck. Could acidic vomit cause something like this?

They're only veeeery slightly itchy, look like small spots. I figure I'll keep the area clean and under no circumstances touch or scratch it, and it'll probably go away.

Lucky I didn't drown to be quite honest famtasm
>>
>>35825211
Yes, the stomach acid from vomit is capable of causing irritation on the skin. If you want to take care of the spot, you can go out and buy some aloe vera lotion, take a nice steamy shower and lightly exfoliate, then apply liberally to the area without irritating it further.

>>35819387
A vitamin c serum is good for wrinkles, as well as retinol. Retinoids also work for acne and if you want the best results get a prescription for a strong one, face creams with it are usually a really low percentage. Sunscreen and moisturising is the best thing for preventing them.

For your diet try and get collagen, through food or vitamins.
>>
>>35819525
Those are sebaceous filaments they will usually come back even when you squeeze them out.

Don't use the nose strips or anything that pulls it out like others are suggesting, and try not to squeeze them, you're probably just making your pores bigger and damaging them.

Try a chemical exfoliator. Not physical (the microbead shit). Something like a BHA chemical exfoliator. Paula's choice have good ones but they are expensive. They have samples though.

Besides using an anti acne cleanser, make sure not to wash your face too much because that will dry it out and make it worse. morning and night is enough. Moisturise after washing it. And make sure anything that touches your forehead is clean, like hats.

A prescription might be best if it doesn't go away. Antibiotics. Proactiv is just a topical thing but is actually pretty decent it has benzoylperoxide which is a good ingredient to look for in face creams.
>>
>>35826731
Not OP but what are you doing at the moment to deal with it? Exfoliation is probably the way to go. Face masks are a good way to clean out your pores. Clay masks not the masks that peel off. If you are willing to spend more money there are chemical peels that actually make your skin peel and make pores look smaller. But it gets expensive and has to be done weekly. Or done by a dermatologist.

>>35827185

The best part about proactiv is benzoyl peroxide. It's really drying so you have to use a good moisturiser or your skin will get flaky. There are other face washes with that in it, so look around. The price is ridiculous
>>
>>35827274
>It's really drying
is this still a concern if you have oily skin to begin with?

>There are other face washes with that in it, so look around. The price is ridiculous

Ok will do. Thanks for the advice
>>
>>35827341

Even if you have oily skin it will be bad for it if it's too dry. Because then your face is just going to produce even more oil and acne. That's why it is bad washing your face often. When I was a teenager I washed my face constantly because it always felt oily, I didn't know it was making my acne worse.

Washing your face morning and night and moisturising is best for when you're oily. Finding a moisturiser that doesn't break you out might be trial and error. There's always vaseline if nothing else works.
