    i just use cerave face wash and cetaphil moisturizer with sunscreen. might just be genetics, but my skin is clear save for the single small pimple every now and then. my girlfriend gives me pimple patches for those though

      yeah, probably a lot of it is genetics. not that those products are bad, per se, i use the foaming facial cleanser from cerave myself, but i do know me and lots of others have to put in a lot more effort. though, i recommend adding a daily spf as well, if you care about aging

    face soap for oily skin.
    Rub it in gently and smoothly with just enough foam to cover my entire face
    (way too much will make your face look like shit),
    let it sit there until my skin absorbs it.
    Wash it with preferably lukewarm water

    3 small drops of Vitamin C

    In the night I do the same thing, but I replace the vitamin c with Aloe Vera.

    Lots of Improvements can be made but this helped massively with my Acne and confidence

    I just started a month ago and need advice, because I’m getting a lot of acne I wasn’t getting before (I’m 30).

    witch-hazel and SPF moisturizer in the morning.
    cleanser, witch-hazel and SPF moisturizer in the evening.

    Is witch-hazel bullshit? I’ve got the no alcohol kind. Haven’t had this much acne in 8 years.

    Skin was good before the routine due to avoiding the sun most of my life. Kinda oily though.

      Witch hazel is a meme. Just copy my routine. You’re 30 so you’re going to want to have products with active ingredients that are actually scientifically proven to do things. Witch hazel is not one of these things. Stuff like Glycolic acid which helps exfoliate your dead skin cells during a time in your life when that cell turnover is slowing down. Stuff like Vitamin C and Niacinamide. These are active ingredients that actually do stuff when it comes in contact with your skin

        Thanks anon. Guessing this is your routine

        Been going hard on skin care since I was 20. I just turned 30. I’m not even exaggerating when I say I ALWAYS get mistaken for being a zoomer and I believe the fact that I’ve been taking good care of my skin for a decade contributes to that.

        Morning:
        Wash face with cold water
        Niacinamide from The Ordinary
        Hyaluronic Acid from the Ordinary
        CeraVe Moisturizer
        Supergoop Sunscreen

        Night: coxrx low PH cleanser
        Niacinamide from the Ordinary
        Hyaluronic Acid from the Ordinary
        ****AHA from the Ordinary which I only use like twice a week and if I use this, I’m not putting on the Niacinamide. One active at a time is enough.****
        CeraVe Moisturizer

        Been running this for like 6 years and it’s been good. What I might do now that I’ve entered my 30s is add Skinceuticals Vitamin C serum since that’s a top tier ingredient that everyone should be using. I also eat a lot of foods that have healthy fats like salmon, walnuts, and avocados. I have no concrete studies to support this claim but every time I go hard on eating these foods I notice my skin is fuller and brighter so I just lean into this correlation and eat more of these foods. Also every time I post this some dip shit says I’m a gay for doing all this but the reality is that this routine is a fraction of the size of other people’s and it is effortless and second nature to do this when I wake up and when I go to sleep.

        . Not sure I could afford all that stuff, but I’ll look into the Glycolic acid and Vit C

          To add into the other anon, The Ordinary is a very good and affordable brand if you have particular skin concerns (dry skin, big pores, etc)

          Most important thing is you have a solid core routine. Face wash, a good moisturizer, at least one or two actives like an AHA and Vit C, and sunscreen. If you just lock those down and be consistent with them over a year, you’ll see results

      Just wanna add that I smoke multiple joints a day which is not good for skin and I don’t drink often but when I do it’s out in the city absolutely binging which is also awful for skin. These things will catch up to me if they haven’t started already so keep that in mind. Your lifestyle also contributes to the state of your skin, not just a routine of creams and serums

    Im new to this whole shit, up until now I just slapped some shower gel on there and washed off, but I’ve realized that my skin is getting worse. How do I go about using face wash and moisturizer? Like do I apply before/after showering?

      Generally I’ll wash my face in the morning on its own, and then at night while taking my nightly shower. No real best technique – just wash it morning and night with a gentle cleanser and you’ll be set. Stay away from the "manly" 17-in-one types of cleansers, they feel like paint stripper. Something from Cerave is a good start.

      For moisturiser, put it on right after you dry your face post-cleansing – followed by a sunscreen. Make that the last step of your morning/night routine, right before you leave the bathroom. Cerave is another good choice for moisturiser – you can even get one with SPF included, although I would still recommend a seperate moisturiser and then some SPF 50.

      CosRX Low PH Cleanser is god tier in my opinion. They sell it at Wal Mart in the asian skincare section. Super gentle and doesn’t strip away your moisture or make your face feel overly dry.

      Having that said though I don’t even wash my face in the morning with cleanser and I advise you do the same. I just use cold water because ideally if you’re following a proper skin care regimen, you would be cleaning your face at night, putting on products and then going to sleep. In the morning there is no days-worth of grime on your face to wash off so I just use water.
