>>718625715 Windex always helped me with acne, only apply it during the afternoon and evenings. Buy a facewash gel (sensitive) and apply it in the morning when you wake up, best to use it in the showers. You will start to notice it fade within the first couple of weeks and from there it will be gone. Good luck.
>>718625715 I had bad acne too, then I stopped drinking soda and eating shit food all the time. I also washed my face every night with cetaphil and used non-comodogenic moisturizer during the winter and whenever else my face got dry. It took a minute, but now I haven't had acne in years.
>>718627512 Oh so you pick your own plants to eat? If not you've got no place calling people who eat meat lazy. And I have in the past killed for food. It's a pain in the ass and tastes like shit. So yeah, I'll just buy it.
I don't get it much anymore, but that's because I started going to the dermatologist.
If you can, you really should think about just going to the doctors. All those years I wasted trying to use OTC stuff, changing my pillow case, diet stuff, drowning my skin with products, thinking I'll just grow out of it, when all I had to was just go to the doctors. I was totally clear in a month.
>>718625715 anon, i know that feel. i was like pic related. my pimples literally had pimples. One time in high school my friend told me that my crush said she really like my personality but she coulnd't get over my pimples. i was fucking crushed man. i know what it's like. One time, this one girl with a lot of pimples asked if my pimples "were like infected or something." I was speechless because i was thinking "bitch! you know what it's like! you know how hurtful that shit is! why did you just say that to me??"
anyway. i got that shit under control. i dont know if my actions caused my acne to clear, if it was just my hormones subsiding, or if it was a combination. but it happened and it will happen to you. stay fucking strong bro.
there's a bunch of shit you can do. don't listen to that windex asshole. holy shit that's bad advice.
The first thing you need to do is RESEARCH. no more of this "hmm well i guess soap works, i guess i'll try this one. maybe twice a day??? we'll just see how it goes..."
You need to arm yourself with information. i recommend trying reddit.com/r/skincareaddiction. pour through the threads. what you're looking for is you need to establish a routine with products that will work for you.
How do you find out what works for you? first, you need to figure out what kind of skin you have. is it oily, dry, or combination. my skin is oily as fuck. if i splash water on my face and then rub my face with my hands, it's like there was PAM sprayed on my hands. BUT, there are products that can help control this. So you look for products based on the kind of skin you have.
>>718628052 another thing. the foundation of any routine is a soap (like a cleanser) and a moisturizer (like a lotion). Look. men think lotion is for women. wrong. lotion is for people that need it and we fucking need it. lotion will help correct whatever imbalance is causing the shit on your face.
so that's step one. look for a soap and a lotion for people with your skin type who are acne prone.
There's all kinds of other little shit you can add. toner. chemical exfoliant. even cream made out of fucking snails, man. it can be as complicated or simple as you want. start simple. and get more complex as needed.
Good luck bro and god speed. your skin will one day be good.
PS , before considering medicine like accutane, be aware if Crohn's disease is a side effect. crohn's is not fucking worth it man. i know you feel like killing yourself, but crohn's apparently will actually make you want to kill yourself. so just do your research on any medicine you might be thinking about.
Unless your acne is as bad as it is in that picture, don't sweat it. It looks so much worse than it is, but half the bitches you will ever talk to are caked in make up to hide theirs. I have mild acne and I just try to keep whiteheads off my face, otherwise, I don't give a fuck about it. I know plenty of guys that pull mad bitches even with mild acne. You just have to get over yourself and exhibit confidence.
>Wash your face 3 times a day >Change your pillow cases every other day >Drink 8 glasses of water daily >Never rub or pick your face Follow these and it will go away... People saying its genetics are stupid
I had very bad acne but then i went on two 8 moth rounds of accutane and have been clear ever since. beware if you think about going on it, it is painful and it does make the acne worse before it gets better. It gave me tremendous back pain and all my joints. I have had to use lip balm every day since I started and even now 2 years of being off of it. I still have back pain usually right when I lay down. Out of all the symptoms only the back pain and dry lips have stayed... Oh yeah they say you can't have any sexual contact while your on it because it is extremely dangerous for pregnant woman. They make sure no one in the house is pregnant and it is extremely expensive since when I took it my health insurance wouldn't cover it since it wasn't a medical necessity or some bull shit. I ended up paying about $900 usd a month for it.
>>718628108 You are a fucking retard. I had very bad acne and did exactly what you said and it didn't change. I changed my diet consumed no sugar... as in candy or soda and changed what I ate to non greasy foods and vegetables. For some people it is genetic.
>>718628346 look, you either want to get clear skin or you don't. the subreddit i linked to is full of legit information and is geared to helping pimply-ass motherfuckers like yourself. if you want some immature 4chan fanboyism to interfere with your fucking skin, then by all means, ignore my advice.
If you really want to help your skin, change the sheets and pillow cases weekly. Wash every night and morning with something like Purpose soap. It helps tons despite your diet.
The best way to balance the 2nd option is to also switch to a mainly rice and vegetable/fruit diet. Working out can help a lot if you shower with the workout so your sheets and pillow case stay cleaner.
>>718628649 establish a skin care routine that involves moisturizing and don't pick at that shit. your pimples are actually pretty alright. (i mean, they are still a problem, but you're not gonna have terrible cratering like i did when it clears up). basically, they suck right now, but the future is bright.
>>718628649 not bad at all, but you can't be pickin at it, that makes the scabs. I think if you just popped whiteheads and let it heal you'd be fine. Also, get some benzoyle peroxide 2.5% or salicylic acid 3% wash.
Benzoyle Peroxide dissolves the top layer of skin cells, causing a dry face (that can be fixed with a non oil based benzoyle peroxide 0.5% moisturizer)
Salicylic acid unclogs pores and reduces the preduction of the stuff that clogs the pores. Both are good, I currently use salicylic acid as it is less harsh on the face.
About a month of that, and maybe a minocyline prescription and you'd be clear bud.
>>718628653 I'm not the poster you're replying to but I also have to support his claims. My mother had very bad skin growing up and passed it on to me when I was born. As soon as I hit puberty, I would get cystic and very large patches of acne seemingly all over. This went on through my youth from 5th grade until I had enough of it. I went on accutane my freshmen or sophomore year of high school and it's cleared me up ever since. Sure I get minor pimples every now and then but it's no biggie compared to what living hell I used to deal with. Now my skins clear, but well I have chronic dry eye due to accutane, and I was only on it for like 4 or 5 months. Not even that long. Plus mood swings as well. Remember, accutane was first a chemotherapy drug before it was used in dermatology. I wouldn't recommend it, but in my case it was literally the only option that helped.
>>718628871 STOP MAKING FUCKING EXCUSES FOR YOURSELF AND FUCKING DO IT YOU WANT TO BE A PIMPLY FUCKING LOSER FOR EVER? THEN BE ONE. DON'T COME HERE LOOKING FOR SYMPATHY BECAUSE YOU'RE FUCKING UGLY. PEOPLE WITH DOWN SYNDROME GET MARRIED AND HAVE KIDS. SO CAN YOU. NOW FUCK OFF AND GET THAT PRESCRIPTION. JESUS CHRIST.
>>718629301 I'm the one that made the long post above >>718628152 and yeah accutane sucks ass like I said I was on it for a total of 16 months on a very high dose and I have long lasting side affects from it too. It was also my only option to avoid permanent scaring. Defiantly sucked but in the end I'm glad I went through it.
I had severe acne for many years of my life and i never thought it would go away. I used to drink a gallon of milk a day for years. I eventually stopped and my acne went away. I wish i had known earlier that it was due to milk and i wouldn't have scars from the shit.
So if you are a milk drinker fucking STOP DRINKING IT!
>>718625715 I had a huge problem with acne before as well. OP, you need to be sure to change your pillowcases frequently, get enough sleep, Look into oil pulling, get one of those face scrubbers that you put batteries in or put into a wall and wet your face and put brown sugar on the scrubber to use as an exfoliate, get a towel/cotton ball and put apple cider vinegar on it for a toner, then rub your face with coconut oil for moisturizer.
>>718629978 jesus, I guess you had it worse than I did, and I thought I had it really bad. Literally anywhere on my body would get acne. Anywhere. I'm glad it helped you out just as it helped me, but at the same time the side effects suck as well. I guess it's the price we pay for clear looking skin. I remember people commenting on my skin after treatment saying it looked so smooth and clear. Really helped improve my overall mental and physical health. I just warn people ahead of time of the risks of accutane use. Permanent back pain is not something you should have to live with just for clear skin. Hope it goes away or you've found a way to deal with the pain day to day.
>>718630212 Yeah see you're uneducated and I'm going to refer you to one of the 90 posts above about accutane. So instead of being ignorant, generalizing EVERY single doctor on planet Earth, and well, being a stupid cunt, how about you do some reeeeeeee-search and come back when you have a "general" idea of what you think you want to say. Because yeah doctors want money, but not all doctors want YOUR money. So stop being a stupid cunt and read the facts.
>>718630419 It's not super bad, like i said it's only for about 1-2 minutes when I first lay down after that it goes away. Doesn't really mess with me throughout my day to day life. Only thing that is annoying is needing to apply lip balm every hour or two.
>>718629757 It all depends. I was on it for six months and it wasn't until the third/fourth month that I started getting them less and less with the occasional bad breakout, and it wasn't until the last two months that I pretty much stopped getting any all.
>>718630965 You're missing the point man. You don't have to go there all the time to comprehend the level of inane feminist babble that exists there. Seeing that type of thing just once can plant the idea that feminism is toxic in your mind.
>>718631372 Of course not. But they are the ones most prevalent these days. Your question is the same as asking if aspergers is the only form of autism. The answer is no, but they're still all autistic.
>>718631687 Wrong. Pharmaceutical representatives visit doctors offices to educate them about their new products. They buy them lunch and give them free things in the hopes they then prescribe their meds more often. No money changes hands.
After every shower I would apply a non fat bases body butter to my face(it should be a paste substance not cheap lotion). After about a hour I would apply the strongest anti acne pad I could find. Apply the pads 3 times a day. And don't eat lots a cheese or fatty meats
>>718632032 A lot of people ask to explain yourself if you go vegan. Personally i never tell someone i'm vegan out of nowhere just when food is coming up or health issues that veganism can help with. Now go choke on your cow tit faggot.
I used to have pretty bad acne as well, but thanks to the help of prescribed medication, I've been feeling a lot more confident. Trust me anon, even if you think you're ugly, it will be a worthy investment to look into medication. To this day, I don't think I even am a 6/10, but when I look into the mirror and see a clean face, I feel hope that if I keep making good decisions like this in my life, I will be a confident, able, attractive person one day.
>>718632243 You got nothing to lose to if you try out a vegan diet for a few weeks and see how it goes. You can have a lot of tasty food eating vegan just look up some vegan restaurants or recipes online.
>>718632498 I eat food I that taste good. If that species of animal didn't want to be dominated by the human race they should have fought against it. Fucking weak animals. They aren't people. They don't have feelings. And they are weak.
>>718632498 I'm lactose intolerant so I'll pass on that. But I'm sure you're a pleasure to be around. Someone mentions a health problem in passing and you jump down their throat to assert that veganism is their only hope. People want an explanation because what you do is not the norm. Get over it and eat a bowl of leaves.
>>718633161 There are a ton of videos on youtube that show imprisoned animals act happy when they are freed, that proves that they have feelings obviously not on the same level as a person, but they do have feelings. You can have a lot of tasty food without animal products, you are just ignorant.
>>718626268 Acutane was the only thing that worked for me. Don't let them give you tetracycline, which fucks with your bones. Heavily vegetarian is an option, although not completely. Vegetarians are deficient in B12, but a mostly raw, vegetable and fruit diet will definy help.
Definy don't kill yourself. Kill Obama and let the police do it for you.
>>718633314 Nah, if a health problem like acne, back pain, heart disease or such comes up i'm just telling them a vegan diet can help with that and if they want to talk about it we continue and that's it. Stop eating animal dicks faggot.
>>718628649 That's what you're going to kill yourself over?!! I had fliggin acne like the OP image and cysts in my cheeks, and you're falling apart over a few pimples?!! Don't kill yourself because of your acne, kill yourself because you're a wimp.
>>718625715 Yes. Get yourself on accutane of whatever the market equivalent today is. Acne used to ruin my self confidence. Your life will be much better and the sooner you get it gone, the less likely it is you will have permanent skin damage like I now have.
Source: healthy, fit, attractive anon who is now much happier.
Everyone is different , 99% of that bullshit creams or washes didn't work for me . Accutane really was the only other option . Its a fucking life saver . Still got the scars , but no inflammation no acne , maybe the occasional white head . 10/10 would recommend
>>718633866 Because a lot of people have been eating animal products for a lot of years, because their parents and culture brainwashed them that if they don't eat animal dick and ass they will die or sick or some shit. That's why these people got used to the texture and taste of corpses and would miss it. So if you don't want to eat corpses and dick while you still want to eat similar shit you have vegan meats. You can't be such a dump fuck to not realize this.
>>718634122 I like to resort to my usual cleansing routine with a stick of all natural butter and start by rubbing that all around my face and then to cleanse it I use warm bacon grease just to get it extra clean.
>>718634684 It's a bit counter-intuitive. You'd imagine a healthy lifestyle would help with that stuff. Think of when bros take steroids and the side effects associated with that. Typical acne is also caused by a sudden and dramatic increase in testosterone production in the body during puberty.
Honestly, prescribed medicine is the only thing that will actually work. I believe severe acne is hormonal in nature, but I'm not a doctor--just someone who lived it.
>>718625715 I had a very bad acne up until 19. Then went to skin doctor and got prescribed roaccutane and some cream antibiotics.
2 months later I had no more acne. Best decision of my life.
Now I follow these basic principles. Dont touch your face. Don't ho popping your zits. Wash face only once a day and with some gentle cleaner and use moisturizer daily (acne is not actually caused by dirty skin against popular beliefs)
I had it pretty bad and them i got prescribed isotretinoin (after a few months of failed treatment) it makes your lips dry as fuck like you have cancer or something but it deals with the acne pretty well
>>718635386 That seems more like some bullshit you made up as opposed to the actual fact that humans have eaten meat for thousands of years. How did we start eating meat if only parents can teach that behavior?
>>718635031 The majority of people who have back pain eat corpses. The link you posted is about a vegetarian that diet still includes animal products such as eggs and milk. The main cause of back pain is cholesterol witch eggs have ton of. But here is a link that explains it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JepHGvL00LI
>>718635625 I don't even get why people make arguments based on whether it's natural. Why give a shit about that? We're humans. We don't have to do stuff because it's natural, and doing unnatural things isn't inherently wrong.
I had this when I was younger..it's actually an infection in your body as a result of it not being able to properly process proteins. Go to a dermatologist and they will prescribe you a very mild anti-biotic. This is the only guaranteed way to get rid of this and you usually take the medicine until it completely disappears. In my case it too up to 6 months but for others it can take a year or so depending on how bad your condition is.
>>718635327 I wasn't worried about the suicidal tendencies thing. My dermatologist told me that they list that because when the drug is going through its trials, they have to list EVERY potential side effect regardless of any causal relationships.
As she explained, most people taking this are young adults, where depression and mental illness manifest at a high frequency, so that was the likely cause of this being a side effect. I personally didn't have any issues while I was on it, but joint problems later on that I don't believe I would have had otherwise.
There was a dangerous recall for this medication accutane. It apperently caused IBS, Crohn's Disease, and Depression I was on it for 6 months and it got rid my HORRIBLE acne completely (except I constantly had nosebleeds and anus bleeding from being so dry. As well as had some sort of mental breakdown and ran away from home because my Dad slapped me for not doing homework) Worth it though. I only get pimples if I don't change my pillow sheets now.
Also change your pillow sheets everyday, or put a fresh towel on your pillow to EASILY get rid of acne. I mean this.
Seriously don't listen to these bullshiters, you need to see a dermatologist so that they can prescribe you accutane/isotretinoin. That is the only thing that works long term and effectively. People on here thinking you can get rid of your type of acne with face washes are idiots. Those are good practices but won't get rid of your genetics.
>>718635873 >the majority of people who have back pain eat corpses
Yeah probably because the majority of humans eat meat you fucking retard. I'm done with this. Eat your plants and I'll continue mercilessly slaughtering animals. You can at least take solace in the fact that humans are the only beings heartless enough to kill other animals for food. Wait...
>>718635625 The point of the example was no human has hunting instincts or the urge to kill, rip and tear a harmless animal up and eat it raw. Dump fuck cave men monkeys where hungry and struggled to find enough shit to eat so they started to eat corpses. Humans practiced incest, slavery, rape and animal fucking for thousands of years. Why don't you practice and defend those activities to?
>>718636279 That's correct. After I heard about that I became concerned because I had just gotten off of it. It's a very powerful drug. I had to get monthly bloodwork done to make sure my liver was alright while I was on it.
I totally agree with you that it's worth it. Whatever the equivalent drug on the market is now, I'd try. There truly is no substitute. OTC stuff is for feeling clean, and doesn't actually treat anything. It's fluff--like ProActive.
>>718636811 Accutane is really a last resort. So far, no one has offered something I can do without going to a doctor in regards to body acne. Hell, I've been to two dermatologists. The first gave me some meme antibiotics that my physician told me to stop taking as they were making me sick. The second gave me some OTC creme that does jack shit.
>>718637352 In the context of the 'veganism is/isn't natural' argument, natural means what humans evolved to do. I was just saying that it's not really relevant because we now do plenty of things that humans never specifically evolved to do.
>>718637210 That sounds remarkably like my story. It's not as scary as it seems man. It will change your life, I'm not exaggerating. Do it before you have scarring.
Keep in mind they will give you very stern instruction and warning because it IS a powerful drug, but I tried all of the same stuff and it did nothing except make me feel sick as well. Clindagel is also a prescription topical antibiotic gel that works very well for spot acne. I use that occasionally when I get a cyst or something and it's gone in 4 days.
>>718637487 Don't be. I'm the same anon discussing this with like 3 people it seems.
Look at my post above. The drug itself may or may not cause dark thoughts. The listed side effect is likely a result of the usual demographic for which this drug is prescribed. Lots of people have dark thoughts and battle anxiety as they transition into adulthood and begin adulthood.
Accutane or isotretinoin dries up your body basically and stops the production of sebum, which is the gross pussy stuff inside of pimples and cysts. That doesn't exactly seem like it has anything to do with endorphin levels or the reaction of the brain's receptors.
Again, I'm not a doctor, but I had a doctor explain to me why that's not something to be afraid of and it makes sense.
>>718628653 Unlike fat growth, acne is actually very tied to hormone imbalances, which is why when transitioning from FtM, a lot of trannies suddenly experience a sudden growth of oil on their skin, as well as acne growth. Genetics is a perfectly sound explanation for the growth of acne and oily skin, because people's hormones don't all act the same way. I've seen plenty of people who hardly ever scrub their skin, let alone even wash their face, and still have zero acne. On the other hand, I've seen plenty of people with Patrick Bateman-tier skin routines with acne-ridden skin.
>>718636976 >domesticated cattle, swine, and fowl all have the same emotional capacity as human beings nice maymay my nigra. BTW, how do you feel about the millions of small animals mercilessly slaughtered during grain and crop harvests?
>>718638018 Not at all. Clear it up dude. If the scars are awful, you can treat those in other ways, but I suspect your situation won't be severe.
Go see a doctor and let them know you've tried other courses of treatment without success and you'd like to explore whether or not you're a candidate for it. They'll want to do bloodwork alto check your liver and gen probably give you the green light. Just listen to their instruction while you're on it and don't fuck around with your body by drinking a bunch or doing cross-fit.
>>718638428 You aren't going to get a definition like that because that's not what I meant. I mean that when someone says 'veganism is unnatural', what the fuck else would they mean besides to say that humans didn't evolve to be vegans?
>Drink a lot of water, at least half a gallon a day >Don't touch your face >Wash your face twice a day with soup, when you wake up and when you go to bed >After each washing the oils in your skin are stripped so with clean hands rub lotion into your pores >Change your pillow case twice a week. If this part is hard for you, buy several pillow cases so you only have to worry about laundering them every once in a while >Reduce stress by exercising. If you do exercise, be sure to wash up afterwards because the sweat will clog your pores >Sleep at night. Get your 8 hours >Cut out junk food >Keep disinfectant spray in your room and use it on your mouse and keyboard every once in a while
>>718638837 No one said that they have the same emotional capacity as a human dumb fuck, but they have feelings. You need 4-10 punds of crops to get 1 pound of meat depending on the animal so by not supporting the animal agricolture vegans use less land. Humans need plants for survival and if there would be a method of geting crops without killing rodents and such i would support it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X5Gqf7jQvZg
who turned this into a fucking vegan thread. Honestly acne is mostly based on genetics and how clean you are. Diet does affect some people but only because their genetics sucks and cant handle eating fatty foods once in awhile without breaking out.
>>718625715 Just wash your face twice a day instead of letting all of that grease and shit build up on your face and clog your pours. If you can get a prescription for some sort of anti-biotics it should clear up fairly quickly. BRO TIP Take cold showers in the morning to close your pours and prevent them from getting clogged in the first place.
I've had pretty bad acne since i was like 13 and i still get it, shit fucking sucks and i've tried just about everything. Accutane cleared it up but really messed up my intestines and it's not like i can be on that stuff for the rest of my life. I've more or less accepted it and just given up, i guess people like me exist to other people can say well i may not be the best looking guy but at least i dont look like that.
>>718636799 Humans never ate meat out of desperation. Forward facing eyes, high intellect, canines, etc are all properties of predator species. The only reason they're not totally practical today is because we evolved to HUNT via our inventions/intelligence (spears, bows, etc)
