    It’s 50/50.
    Nurtrition doesn’t moisturize your skin.
    Taking both vitamins trough nutrition and with serum is the most optimal.

    How often do you think he leaves his basement?
    How do you think his skin actually looks?

    My acne cleared up as soon as I stopped using any sort of cleanser/moisturizer/soap on my face and started washing with only lukewarm water. It returns whenever I try using any sort of topical product.

    Hormones are the primary trigger, but ingredients from consumer skincare products can absolutely exacerbate acne. Especially if you’re buying cheap topicals at the drugstore. Ingredients in these products are low quality and constantly get worse as the companies reformulate their products in attempt to cut costs.

      There are multiple kinds of acne with multiple causes, some hormonal, some caused by your face having out of control colonys of bacteria and yeast, some caused by excessive keratin production in the skin etc etc

    Skincare is definitely not useless.. it’s just so variable to every person.

    Switched cleaners/moisturizer and my face cleared up significantly. Not insanely expensive stuff either..

    Now I also use tret, never get any acne at all anymore and it actually works for smoothing out blemishes, texture, and deaging.

    I never would do a clean shave before tret, but now my skin is actually perfectly smooth enough to effortlessly do it. I can’t believe I lived this way for nearly half my life.

    While you are mostly right, there are still situations where skin care from the outside is necessary, like extreme weather conditions which doesn’t happen often enough for evolution to take care of it.

      this is one of those things I’ve never heard about in real life and never seen someone wash their face with anything other than water

      22 is young. I was like you at your age. Around 26 or so I started having to wash once per day with a light soap to avoid acne. I usually use Dove sensitive skin and take care to not scrub hard or use too hot water. Now my biggest problem is dry skin, not acne. But my point is that it changes as you get older.

        your hormones are definitely hecked up
        no man should get acne past puberty
        I’m just one Anon, but I only get acne if I cum a lot, like 4+ times per day
        edging for hours without cumming has the same effect now I think about it
        >Now my biggest problem is dry skin
        if it only happens during winter, that’s normal for most people

    Good skin requires not damaging it in the first place through sub exposure, nutritional deficiencies and dehydration. Acne is mostly caused by dairy intolerance/allergies that people dont want to accept they have. But yes, washing your face with cold water and applying a moisturizer whilst avoiding the sun is all you need. (T)retinol, niacinamide, vitamin c, vitamin e and hyaluronic acid are all proven to have benefits as well as red light, ipl and laser. Most lotions and creams are completely worthless unless you are also dermarolling since they can’t penetrate the skin well enough to make a difference

    Putting shit on your skin actually doing anything tangible to its composition is dubious to begin with but the problem is there isn’t a single skincare product or advice that has any sort of scientific evidence or actual research & development behind it. Since putting that money into marketing is more profitbale. Seriously, you can’t find our what works or what is real, since none of it has anything legitimate behind it.

    Most of so-called skincare is so obviously based on nonsensical quackery, some of which was invented by marketers generations ago, and having unhealthy, hecked up skin to begin with and mistaking some temporary relief from that as ‘care’. Meanwhile as someone with a naturally good skin I’ve had the opposite experience. Also, the main difference in looks is having a layer of shiny moisturiser on your face. This neither looks good nor is healthy. Perhaps worth doing if you have long, scalding showers on your face or you wear makeup (and strip your skin cleaning it) . But that’s a bandaid for bad habits.
