Discuss anything skincare related!
Could be the sunscreen. Is it chemical or mineral?
I get blackheads anyway and my favorite method to get rid of them is benzoyl peroxide for a few hours (or as long as your skin can handle). It can be pretty irritating so have something at hand to soothe your skin in case it makes your skin angry (eg. Aloe vera).
reposting from old thread. Someone mentioned waxing would help but anyone know how to fix the pseudostache look. Would skin lightening or something help? Also about blackheads>>178102
do you have a specific brand you buy for benzoyl peroxide. I have had blackheads for forever and believed the would never go away, so this is news to me.
nta but you should be able to find peroxide OTC, the pharmacy will help you out. personally i think regular exfoliation and salicylic acid work better, but when it's about nose blackheads/filaments it really depends so you may wanna figure out what suits you better!
about the pseudostache there are hair lightening creams, or use one of those tiny razors and just shave it off
good luck anon(s)!
I use acne.org's gel since I also am cursed with fungal acne and it's fungal safe. Otherwise any benzoyl peroxide 2.5% should do the job (higher concentrations are redundant).
But like other anon said, also try salicylic acid since all skin is unique! I use that as well for my other acne issues. BP just personally works best on my blackheads.
Toothpaste on burns actually does more harm than good from what I’ve read. My mom does it as well, but besides the initial cooling effect, it doesn’t help heal or minimize scaring.>>178228
I’m getting some of this now, thanks anon!

>>178388>whats the best cream/oil to tone down the scars?
have you tried products with azelaic acid or vitamin c serums?>razor burns and it gets all red and bumpy
Do you have any experience with picrel type of razor and using it while showering? I usually do a combo of putting a shaving gel for sensitive skin, then using this type of razor, then immediately cold water on the shaved area and after all shower is done, some kind of antiseptic cream, like bepanthen, tends to get me the best results.
NTA but those plastic razors dull so quickly and just irritate you further.
Get a safety razor and some natural hair conditioner. Aloe vera gel afterwards. Your vag will thank you.
Don't use anything heavily scented, it will irritate your skin further.

I'm retarded and accidentally made a whole new thread about this lol but I just got this. i've never used a vitamin c before… and idk how to incorporate this into my routine. I have a couple of post acne marks I want to fade that's why I bought it. I usually alternate between a BHA and retinoid every night, and then moisturizer.. so idk where I'm supposed to fit this in. help pls
so after moisturizer but before sunscreen? do u use it as a spot treatment or just put it all over your face? the consistency really throws me off… it's so watery>>178488
I got it from Chuusi but there are other k/j beauty sites that stock it, like yesstyle

I would advise against the cerave, personally it didn't do anything for me except break my normal non-acne prone skin out. I'd recommend picrel, it is my fav nighttime cream

Okay nonnies, I'm going to try to stop touching my face for two weeks. I like to say that my mask is breaking me out, but in reality I make it even worse by picking and touching.

anons how can i get long lasting faux freckles besides getting them tattooed? i really really want freckles i tried everything these past 2 years including traditional indian henna(did not work on me at all it wouldnt stick and it washed away immediately and color was off), brow tint(worked better than henna but would barely last a day) and l'oreals magic root cover up hair dye spray(it looked the best but going into sun with hair dye searing into my face makes me break out). I just want to know how girls like beabadoobee do it bcuz it doesnt look like a tattoo(im only posting this on this thread cuz 1-i dont want to do it with an eyeshadow 2-i couldnt find the makeup thread)
having one grandparents on each side with 25% ginger DNA.
It might look cute but having to wear sunscreen and wearing a hat and long dress all summer isn't fun.
File: 1618159451868.jpg (12.32 KB, 474x304, exfoliation glove 2020.jpg)
nta but when I shave that area I exfoliate like my life depends on it because I dread the itch and ingrowns I used to get before I began exfoliating. I use one of those gloves made of a kind of scratchy material, like picrel. I wet it in warm water and then give the entire area I'm going to shave a really good scrub, avoiding the inner labia area. you don't have to be so rough it hurts though. after I've shaved I hop in the shower, grab my glove again add some soap suds and give the whole area another scrub. it's the simplest and cheapest method, you can get a set of those gloves for like £1. I use the partner glove to exfoliate my armpits before shaving.
I use the exact thing that above anon does. It's very convenient, and I scrub in circular motions.
Also slightly ot, the skin on my legs always trap my leg hair (not ingrowns, just a very very thin layer of skin for some reason) and the glove cures that completely.
is there ever an instance where against the grain is ok if done right? with the grain leaves me looking like a strawberry :(. or am i shaving wrong?
bless you anons. didn't have a mom to teach me basic shit so /g/ is a godsend.

These are wonderful. I have gone through packs of these since I first found out about them. If you get like smaller pimples with puss inside tmi these really help in drawing it out and also protecting it from bacterial and stuff.

Yes these are fucking great, they also absorb oil from your pores. For USfags you can get picrel cheap at walmart, and they also make larger patches to cover an entire area of skin. Don't buy the overpriced Hero Cosmetics brand at target.

Idk if I should invest in an at-home ipl machine. The Phillips one has lots of posts recommending it but I can't tell the shills from actual reviewers on reddit and YT
I have it and I second >>179382
, it totally works and I am a hairy beast. But you HAVE to be consistent, otherwise the hair will come back. I need to get back to it before the summer…
I have this and it really does work but you have to keep using it, it took about 3-4 times for my leg hair to disappear.
The darker your hair the better it works, my bikini line only took a couple of times.
