if you're trying to maximize bang for buck washing off your actives is probably not the way to go. I'd switch to a gentle cleanser like cerave or an oil cleanser and follow with an exfoliant that I leave on-- maybe Corsrx AHA/BHA?

u/lurklurklurky · 9 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

Also too lazy for pics, but here's mine!

Skin: Combination/normal, oily t-zone and normal elsewhere (somewhat dry/flaky if I don't use a BHA), hormonal acne on forehead and chin just before my period

AM & PM (One added step in PM: remove eye makeup before cleanser using store-brand oil-free makeup remover):

u/reallycoolpeople · 8 pointsr/MakeupAddiction

Just AM:

  • rinse face, slap on chemical sunscreen.

    Just PM:

  • emulsifying oil cleanser. Great for a very gentle makeup remover and cleans well. Thanks, adult acne!
  • Wash face with Cerave Hydrating. Does this do anything? Who knows.
  • I throw this honey thing in. It really does a good job adding some moisture, but it's too sticky for the morning/takes too long to sink in.
  • Almost last, rosehip oil. I am not a homeopathic gal, so I turned up my nose to all the promises. Dumb. I LURVE this. It soothes, it fights acne, it really helps with the dryness more than anything else. It will turn you into an Oompa-Loompa for about 2 minutes, though.
  • At the end, seal the whole shebang with a sleeping pack or Vaseline. That definitely helps with the dryness and my face is softer the next morning.


    What about you? My routine does super well at fighting the irritation-red part of the rosacea, but I wish I had something that blanched the actual-red-all-the-time part.
u/spunky-omelette · 6 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

>do you think any of the positive benefits you achieved would be bad

Absolutely--making distinguished wrinkles disappear and brightening your complexion is TOTALLY not masculine, blech!

Kidding, kidding. I can't see any downsides to focusing on the care and keeping of your skin...except maybe becoming a bit obsessive over it and enjoying it too much (hence this subreddit).

Lurk around and check out some of the discussion threads in this sub, and read the sidebar links. You'll learn a lot. There's a very large focus on understanding the why and how things work (particularly in regards to ingredients) and the science behind them. It's really hard to get into that mindset in the beginning because it's so easy to be swayed by sexy advertising, attractive packaging, and tempting claims, but if the ingredient list doesn't back it up, none of that matters.

The products I currently use:

  • Cleanser: I bounce between a Gentle Cleansing Gel($3-4 per ounce--a little goes a long way and it has lasted me ages) or the Cerave Foaming Cleanser($0.94 per ounce)

  • Exfoliators I use an 8% AHA toner($2.23 per ounce) for gentle daily exfoliation.

  • Oils Changes depending on the season. I got a sample pack of three different oils from GoW for $9.25 back in December, and I'm still working on them. A teeny bit goes a long way.

  • Moisturizer/Hydrator Changes based on my whims. Sometimes I just use an oil, sometimes a simple moisturizer ($5-6 per ounce) with a drop of oil mixed in. Again, these can last me a long time.

  • Masks The Aztec Healing Clay($0.50 per ounce) mask is a huge favorite here. I'll also sometimes make a turmeric mask using ingredients from my kitchen that I'm already using in my food anyways, so I don't calculate that cost.

  • Sunscreen My biggest splurge item, I spent $20 on the Elta MD sunscreen. I like it because it's a physical blocker and doesn't irritate my skin.

    Since the products I buy last me a long time, the cost doesn't seem very large to me. Some products, like the healing clay mask or certain oils, are only used in small quantities, so they'll last a long, long time.

    When I first got started in revamping my routine, I very slowly introduced new products (started with a new cleanser, then after a few weeks tried a moisturizer, etc). This is good because it's easy on your wallet AND it allows you to get an accurate feel for what works and what doesn't.

Tiny Bumps and Redness on Forehead, as well as Puffy, Reddish Skin (and large-ish pores) Around the Nose

I've been dealing with tiny bumps on my forehead (along with redness in the middle of the forehead) and puffy, red skin around my nose (between the nose and the cheekbone). Plus, the pores around my nose seem larger than on the rest of my face. It's not terribly severe, but it's enough to knock down my confidence a peg and it's a touch uncomfortable. I've taken three pictures, though they aren't great due to the camera.

Here are two after a morning workout and before a shower;

Here's one about a half hour after my shower;

The redness and bumpiness is worse than the pictures show. Not by too much, but by a bit. Enough to where that section of my face looks noticeably redder than the rest.

I've dealt with this issue for years. Longer than I can remember. I've never had terrible acne and what I did have stopped after 21. So, it's just mostly this. Here are some other details;

  • I'm 25 and a dude.
  • I eat fairly healthy (though I have a weak spot for coffee and sweets)
  • I work out daily
  • My skin type is hard to pin down. It's definitely combination, as I experience pretty much no problems outside of the T-Zone (mostly in the areas already mentioned). After a shower (or even rinsing my face), that area feels fairly dry. If I haven't had enough fats, it flakes or gets slightly ashy. But, it does get a little oily as my day goes on. Not terribly so, but enough that I can put a finger up there and it comes away with more oil than it would on other parts of my face.
  • My old routine, which I've had for several years, went as such; I'd use either Nivea Men Moisturizing Face Wash or St Ives Apricot Scrub during my daily shower, alternating between them each day (never using them in the same day. Then, after my shower, I would use [Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion] (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B001459IEE/_encoding=UTF8?coliid=I3F1P4IHXJFOEV&colid=27R5W41VRL2U6). That's about it.
  • I ditched my old routine a couple months back and started doing nothing. I actually noticed slight improvement in the redness, if anything, but not much else. But, my skin was noticeably dryer.
    About a month ago, I started using Cerave Moisturizing Cleanser during my daily shower. I think* I noticed a small improvement in the quality of my skin. To deal with dryness, I tried using a St. Ives Moisturizer but it wound up making my skin burn and causing other problems, so I ditched it.

    Whew, that brings me to now. I don't know what's causing this problem. It's not terribly severe, but I want to fix it. And I figure asking you guys would be the best way to do that. My main questions are: What is causing these two issues? And how can I fix them?

    I hope to hear something good.
u/Shin_Singh · 4 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

UK based? Asos and BeautyBay.com sell The Ordinary. Useful if you have Premier with Asos.

I suffer from redness and a few scars too, out of their range I love the Advanced Retinoid & Rose Hip Seed Oil (Used both for 6+ Months). Just trying out VitC Suspension by them (for 2 weeks) and I do see slight improvements - was using their Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate.

(I'm also using a BHA Toner from CosRX - using my hands not a cotton pad, Neutrogena Ultra Sheer SPF55 Sunscreen, and cleanser by Aesop or CeraVe)

Back to The Ordinary, I have tried their Niacinamide, Azelic Acid and Arbutin, they didn't play nice with my skin, and became really irritable...more than likely they reacted with the CosRX - which is my wonder product for AM I haven't broke out since using it (Retinoid is my PM godsend)...and I didn't think they worked well on alternating days - Also CosRX has some Niacinamide already so didn't want to overdo it.

For what it's worth, I'm male, with light brown skin (I guess in between 3 and 4 on Fitzpatrick scale)...and I have waffled on too much, I apologise.

u/Steccca · 4 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

I have oily/combo skin, acne, sensitive/rosacea prone (getting the picture?) and I love using [Cerave's hydrating cleanser] (https://www.amazon.com/CeraVe-Hydrating-Cleanser-12-Ounce/dp/B000YJ2SKM). It's 8.38 on Amazon (great way to get it if you have prime). I don't like spending lots of money on a cleanser especially since you wash it right off. This cleans my skin, leaves it feeling hydrated (doesn't strip the moisture barrier) without making me more oily. Let me know if you have more questions, I love talking about skin care.

Also you can usually print off a $2 coupon from cerave's website. The cerave cleanser has last me over 3 months and I don't think I'm half way through yet.

They're not all from Amazon, but they're all located within the UK so shipping charges should be minimal. I would also recommend waiting for a promotion (either free shipping or % based discount) from Paula's Choice before purchasing the toner.

u/LaLaLeapYear · 3 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

About your age here!

I have pretty difficult skin... it's sensitive and gets rashes in response to all sorts of things, I have PIH (every time I get a pimple, after it heals, a dark mark stays on my skin for weeks and weeks), it gets oily and dry, the works. I ended up on this subreddit seeking help, and though I'm still experimenting with some things, it's DEFINITELY getting better.

I usually shower twice a day just because gym time works out in the middle of my schedule. I do my face washing in the shower, and I have the generic Trader Joe's Tea Tree Tingle body wash. It's actually pretty good on your face. I also have the Cerave hydrating face wash, but I'm not sure lately if it adds anything. Maybe. For now the Tea Tree Tingle seems to be doing just fine.

Every few days I use the St. Ives Pads. I know a lot of people on here recommend the Stridex, but my hyper-sensitive skin had a conniption about those.

By day, my moisturizer is the Cerave in the tub and they are NOT KIDDING. Of all the products I've tried courtesy of this sub, this is the #1 most helpful thing I've discovered yet.

At night, in hopes of treating my PIH, I've been experimenting with Retinol. They say it takes a long time to notice any difference. They're right. I've noticed no difference. BUT thus far, my skin hasn't broken out, gotten blotchy or rashy, or otherwise freaked out over this stuff, so... I'll hang in there.

Oh, and Sunscreen. I use Neutrogena Sensitive Skin. I recommend starting with VERY LITTLE and working it in one section at a time. It's easy to go overboard and end up with caked-on white face.

PROTIP WITH SUNSCREEN: you guessed it: there have been cases of melanoma in my family and I freckle out a lot and have a high risk (I told you my skin was difficult). ALWAYS remember to put sunscreen all over your ears (front and back) and on the tops of your feet/toes. People don't think to cover these areas and don't check for melanoma there in time, usually.

Oh, and last: I've tried the Aztec Healing Clay twice now as I've needed to get rid of blackheads or calm things down a bit. Definitely use Apple Cider Vinegar, that stuff is the best.


  1. in shower, Tea Tree Tingle or Cerave hydrating face wash

  2. (only 2-3x/week) St. Ives Pads

  3. Moisturizer Cerave in the tub or Retinol

  4. By day: Neutrogena Sensitive Skin sunscreen

  5. Randomly on a Saturday afternoon if my skin's been having freak-outs, Aztec Healing Clay

    I'm pretty new at this myself, but so far it's working out pretty well. I started with the Beginner's Skincare Routine as a rough guide and otherwise lurked around figuring things out (which is still pretty much how I'm handling it). So far, awesome sub, and found a lot of this has been really helpful!
u/jingansi · 3 pointsr/MakeupAddiction

I got prescribed clindamycin + tretinoin (mine is lower than yours, at 0.025%) for moderate/severe acne more than two years ago. According to my doctor, I was put on a "medium" dosage and wanted me to try the combination out first before we decide if we want to amp up or go lower, perhaps you can look into the option of switching to a lower concentration for the tretinoin if possible and slowly work your way up. The doctor also told me that if my skin was getting excessively dry/irritated, I could reduce the application of it from every night to every other night.

None the less when I first started, my skin freaked out and was patchy for weeks-months mainly in the area around my mouth, nose, and above my lips. I felt that no matter how much I try flake off the dry skin with a cotton pad and toner in the morning, my face looked like it was falling apart by the end of the day. What I ended up doing for a while was just putting foundation on my forehead and cheeks and avoiding all the patchy areas as much as I could. I kept a little tube of lotion everywhere I went and made sure that those problem areas were moisturized at all times - they looked red because they were irritated and not concealed by makeup but I know for sure that looked a lot better than flakey patchy skin barely clinging on. I also switched from Lancome Teint Idole Ultra (more of a matte finish) to Estee Lauder Double Wear (dewy finish)

I've also added a few more steps into my skincare regime such as the:

CeraVe hydrating cleanser

Mizon Hyaluronic Acid Ampoule

Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate

Intense Fast Healing Cream with Aloe

and really thick moisturizers like Vanicream or Cetaphil

My typical skincare regime at night involves ~10 different products but the ones I've listed really stands out to me. I also make sure that I give each product some time to absorb before layering on the next one.

Once times a week, I will also use chemical exfoliate on my face, currently using the Boscia because I got some with point perks but those peels are more or less all the same to me. 2-3 times a week I also use Raw Honey from Trader Joe's as a mask (I just slather it all over my face and wait for 20-30 minutes) and the My Beauty Diary Black Pearl Sheet Mask. They have many different kinds but black pearl and hyaluronic acid are my two favorites. Make sure you gently pat the remaining essence into your face after you take it off!

And lastly, I was really self conscious about my face as well in college. I was on and off of birth control for the most part and it really wrecked my face to the point where I felt that makeup wasn't a luxury I entertained myself with but rather a necessity in order to present myself to others. But towards the end of it, I felt more comfortable with my skin regardless of improvements in my acne because I realized that nobody in a 300+ people lecture hall probably gave a crap about what I look like. I'm sitting next to different people everyday and I'm probably never going to see them after the class ends. I don't sit around school scoping out people to judge (at least I try not too) and even if I do for example encounter someone with really bad acne or hair or whatever walking around, I'm probably not going to remember her/him the next day - so no one that mattered was going to be judging my face either.

Also sorry if my amazon links are kinda weird, I have an extension that defaults them to amazon smile, just take it out when you browse.

u/hplssrmantcxox · 3 pointsr/AskDocs

Try CeraVe products - they have a Salicylic Acid (SA) line (Cleanser & Lotion) that would help with your acne, and they also have a Hydrating cleanser + amazing Moisturizer creme and moisturizing lotion too.



CeraVe's moisturizing products are amazing if you have solely dry skin + no acne, but I've heard reviews about it helping clear acne too even without the Salicylic Acid. CeraVe has some sort of patent in their products that help encourage your skin to renew its cells and encourage natural facial oils to emerge and help moisturize your skin without causing pimples.

^ You can read more reviews about CeraVe and see if it works; it worked really well for my horrible dry face rash that I got as a result of radiation + my bone marrow transplant. (Face was basically peeling and couldn't breathe/felt "stuck" because I stripped all the oil away from my face using too many harsh cleansers to get rid of the dead skin and rash. I used the hydrating cleanser and noticed a difference in 3 days with the moisturizing creme + lotion - creme for the really extra dry/flakey skin and lotion for my hands/other dry skin.

I used these products:



http://www.ulta.com/ulta/a/CeraVe/Skin-Cleansers/_/N-1z13ozbZ2794?categoryId=cat80170&ciSelector=leaf <--Read up the reviews here too for the different cleansers and see which ones would be best for your skin. You might be able to get a sample of these too if you went to a local Ulta store or contact CeraVe.

It's hypoallergenic and Dermatologist recommended for Eczema too.

CeraVe also has a $2 coupon on their website too :) I bought mine at a local CVS when they were having a great sale on it.

u/bigbootyjudgejudy_ · 3 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

Hi, first off. I recommend checking out /r/SkincareAddiction. They know a lot about the ins and outs of products. But here's my little bit of wisdom; as someone (F23) who has been struggling with hormonal acne these past few months, I noticed the biggest increase in my skin appearance when I changed my diet. I started this elimination diet called Whole30 just over 2 weeks ago and have seen dramatic improvements in my skin this past week. You may not need to go on a 30 day cleanse, but I recommend cleaning up your diet as much as you can and then re-introducing certain foods to see if it triggers a breakout. Maybe try giving up things like dairy and sugar, and then bring them back after a few weeks to see if they may be throwing your hormones out of whack (because no doubt, your acne is a hormonal issue). Some bits about makeup and products; I stopped using a primer (Benefits POREfessional) and liquid foundation (Urban Decay Naked foundation). I don't know if these products were clogging my pores, but I feel better taking a break from them. I started to just use a set of Bare Minerals powders instead. I also use a micellar water to take my makeup off. Garnier SkinActive Micellar water (pink cap) works great, followed by a cleanser (CeraVe), toner (Thayers Witchhazel), and moisturizer (YesToCarrots Daily Moisturizer) -- this is my pm routine, as it involves makeup removal. In the morning, I use the cleanser, toner, moisturizer, and follow up with EltaMd SPF 46 sunscreen. This sunscreen is specifically made to reduce current redness from past/present acne and protect you from the sun. You need to wear it everyday. Hope this all helps! And good luck. Having bad skin can really take a toll on your self-esteem, but just remember that it's never permanent!

2 chu-lips for a CeraVe hydrating cleanser.. Or one chu-lip + a sun screen of your choice. (Plus random samples I have.)

....lol chu-lip black-market.

u/natterrific · 3 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

You're right, there are lots of options! Here is a guide to the different lotions and moisturizers.

I personally like the pm lotion. I use it in the am and pm. It has ceramides, niacinamide, and hyaluronic acid. Here's a link to it on amazon

For a cleanser, I personally use the hydrating one because I generally find foaming cleansers too drying. But some people prefer the foaming. You can look at reviews to help make your decision


Also, be sure to pay close attention to your skin when you start using them. Cerave is probably the most popular brand on this sub, but there are still a lot of people whom have skin that don't agree with it. If your skin does have adverse reactions, it will probably be due to the fatty alcohols or niacinamide. It's a great product but some people are sensitive to those ingredients

u/mabeol · 3 pointsr/FeminineNotFeminist

Products I love!

  • Alterna Bamboo Brilliance Cream. I put about a 1/4-1/2 teaspoon of this in my hair before blowdrying it, and the results are stellar! Smooth, soft, shiny. I’ve been using this for years per the recommendation of the woman who cut my hair when I lived in a different state, and I continue to be so impressed with it. Also, I don’t know if it’s just my hair texture, but if I put this in my hair and then blowdry it straight, it straightens out very well. I don’t even own a flatiron because this stuff + a blowdryer gets the job done.

  • Kenra Platinum Silkening Gloss. This is one of the most highly lauded products over on r/redpillwives, thanks to QB. I haven’t had men trailing me in stores because of the smell, but I’ve been really impressed with the product! If I use this to blowdry my hair straight, I can usually get two “down” days and an updo day out of it! Definitely recommend.

  • Coochy from Pure Romance. I will never tidy up my lady zone with anything else. This stuff is so good, my friend’s gynecologist recommended it.

  • Pretty much anything from CeraVe, but namely this moisturizer (also known as “CeraVe in the tub), this cleanser, and this sunscreen/moisturizer combo.

  • Paula’s Choice 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant. My skin is smoother when I’m using this regularly. Plus this is such a good brand.

  • Snow River Wood Oil. OKAY HEAR ME OUT. When I’m regularly oil cleansing with this stuff, my face is baby soft. It’s non-comedogenic, so it won’t break you out, and it’s a very neutral oil, so most skin types do well with it (but ALWAYS patch test). It’s also crazy cheap!

    Products I didn’t love

  • Burts Bees Face Cleanser for Sensitive Skin. There was nothing wrong with this product, per se… it was just unremarkable. I didn’t really notice a difference.
u/Sexthrowawayforfun · 3 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

Wash face in morning( I use cerave hydrating cleanser), apply moisturizer (I use nivea creme)

Wash face in evening (same cleanser), apply stridex (red box) all over face, wait 30 minutes, moisturize (nivea creme)



u/cleonm · 3 pointsr/wicked_edge

I'm going to throw CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser out there. It works wonders on my acne and also doubles as a great pre-shave soap for me.

Bonus: I like their Moisturizing Cream as an aftershave balm and face moisturizer. After I put it on I wait a few minutes then put on a splash for scent.

u/gotti9660 · 3 pointsr/Accutane

1). Dr. Dan's Cortibalm for your lips (you will thank us later).

2). [CeraVe in the tub] (https://www.amazon.com/CeraVe-Moisturizers-Moisturizing-Cream-Ounce/dp/B001V9SXXU) - Use this at night before bed, and in the morning when you are getting ready.

3). Depending on how your skin takes to the accutane, you may also want to use a moisturizing cleanser, such as CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser

Theres also a FAQ on this sub, which I'd suggest taking a look at. Good luck with your treatment!

u/Rhiddon · 2 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

Okay so I dont think that my skin is kinda dehydrated that much but still sensitive. Was thinking to just start with this for now:
Cleanser: https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B000YJ2SKM/ref=ox_sc_act_image_1?smid=A19497B1AUMQOH&psc=1
Moisturizer: https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00365DABC/ref=ox_sc_act_image_2?smid=A19497B1AUMQOH&psc=1
And maybe add Vaseline on top of moisturizer before sleep
Both of these were recommended with bunch of other products so im not sure I picked good lol anyways I would still like to add supplements (at least Zinc and Fish oil cuz I cant remember when I ate fish last time and I barely eat any meat) btw I really appreciate your help a lot :) I need someone to save me haha

u/CoolCoolBeans · 2 pointsr/AusSkincare

I actually just had a bottle of cerave hydrating cleanser ship in today.

Make sure the product you're looking to buy is sold and shipped by amazon.com, and not a reseller.

Edit: This is where I bought the moisturising cream earlier this year http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001V9SXXU/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

u/furyasd · 2 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

Thanks for the help.

Fortunately, I have no other skin problems, I just get a lot of oil, specially in my nose and forehead, also I have a problem with my lips since I'm like 10, which is I have to use 1 or 2 chapsticks per month, otherwise my lips and all around it will become red and I get a burning sensation, it has gotten worse over the years, probably because of the shitty chapsticks I bought.

I will have to buy those products on Amazon, since I'm Portuguese, and I don't know if they are available here.

Yeah, I've just stopped writing for a bit, and looked on Google, and it's not available here.

I've got some links from Amazon, cleanser here amd moisturizing here.

It's seem expensive, but I'm tired of having this problem, and I'll make an effort to buy these, if these are worth buying.

The only thing I used when I was like 12 was Clearasil, but only for a few days/weeks, due to having a little bit of acne, nothing much.

I appreciate your help, seriously, I have been dealing with this for so long, I'm getting tired.


u/spaceman425 · 2 pointsr/Accutane

I didn't have too much scarring, but I use this every day in the shower: https://www.amazon.com/CeraVe-Foaming-Facial-Cleanser-Ounce/dp/B000YJ2SKM?th=1

It definitely reduces redness and gets rid of most of the dryness caused by the Accutane.

u/missdjx3 · 2 pointsr/AsianBeauty

I have dry skin too and I'm currently using Cerave Hydrating Cleanser. It's really gentle and it doesn't leave my skin feeling tighter afterwards.

u/hellokitaminx · 2 pointsr/AsianBeauty

Yaaaaaas. This, so much! Oil cleansing + hydrating foaming/cream second cleanser have totally changed the game for me with my super dry skin. I personally love Kose Softymo. I use the Speedy version right now, but the Deep Cleansing version has my eye!

I'm also washing with Hada Labo Tokyo Hydrating Cleanser, which I like a lot! Super mild.

Lastly, as a facial oil, Goodal Wateriest Water Oil has been particularly popular lately, and for good reason! I have a different version from the same line and, while I just only tried it out yesterday, it has immediately left my skin feeling leagues better.

I hope this helps!

I use this every morning and night in the shower with Cerave cleanser.

Twice per week I use AHA renewing cream (10% concentration of Lactic Acid. Got the recommendation from /r/SkincareAddiction's wiki for my skin type).

After every wash, and sometimes during the day (especially during bad days) I use Cetaphil moisturizer with SPF15.

I still have bad days but this routine has given me the best results so far. SD sucks (not that I have to tell you of course). If it ever gets worse, I'll try adding an anti-fungal cream as well.

A quick note about how I use the ProX brush at it's highest speed, which isn't all that fast anyway. The brush is extremely soft, I even use it dry to get rid of flakes if I'm at home.

Heyo, I recently swapped to the COSRX Low pH Good Morning cleanser after the Cerave Foaming Face Wash was found to be dehydrating my skin. However, when I initially started the switch, I noticed my skin seemed a bit sensitive and seemed to still be producing a good amount of oil. I tried using the Cerave Hydrating Facial Cleanser and it seemed to get rid of the irritation and lowered the excess oil production, but does not feel nearly as cleansing as the COSRX or Foaming Face Wash did.

Do you recommend I continue using the hydrating cleanser until my moisture barrier rebuilds and then swap back? If you look at my last post, I'm following most of the steps suggested (including applying Vaseline at night), but am still struggling with CFs on my nose (hard ones) and clogged pores on my cheeks and forehead.

Any recommendations?

u/LaTortugaConQueso · 2 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

Oh good god... Okay, well you asked for it...

I work third shift, so my routine is a little backwards because of that.

I usually shower in the morning before bed (about 8am). In the shower: First thing I do is shampoo my hair, if I shampoo that day (I usually shampoo 3x a week) and I use SheaMoisture shampoo. After that I condition with SheaMoisture conditioner and leave it in, I put my hair in a clip and continue showering. I wash the front half of my body and whatnot, then I wash my face with Cerave. Then I take the clip out of my hair, rinse the conditioner, and then I use one of those loofas on a stick to wash my back. I actually just started that this week, I noticed that washing my back after rinsing conditioner helped with bacne a lot but there was one spot in the center of my back that I couldn't reach that still had acne.

Then I turn off the water, and standing in the shower I flip my hair over and finger comb it with SheaMoisture leave in conditioner. Then while my head is still flipped, I squirt one handful of Garnier Fructis gel into my hand and scrunch it all around my hair. Then I get one more squirt and go through my hair and twist out individual strands. Then I wrap my hair in a Microfiber towel wrap and I sleep all day with that on. I'm waffling between sleeping with that and sleeping with a tshirt on my head, I can't decide which one is better yet.

Once I step out of the shower, I wipe my face with Stridex in the red box and let that dry for 20 minutes. After that, if I have any active whiteheads, I pop them and stick hydrocolloid bandages on them. Then I rub a mixture of Jojoba and Tea tree oil on my face, I use it in 1 tea tree/9 jojoba oil parts. Then I put vaseline on my hands and lips and go to bed. Sometimes if my hands and cuticles are really bad I slather my hands and sleep with gloves on.

When I wake up (around 5pm) I wash my face with Cerave again, and moisturize with Cerave and I use Trader Joe's sunscreen. Then I flip my hair upside down and sit on the toilet and dry my hair with a hair dryer and diffuser attachment, and then flip back over and kinda organize my part and stuff like that. Then, FINALLY, I am ready for the day.

SO YEAH. Most people regret asking.

u/uncleoperation · 2 pointsr/malefashionadvice

it's been said to you already but a ton of people have success with CeraVe products. I was in a very similar situation as you, in terms of skin and what I wanted out of a product, and their hydrating cleanser and their moisturizing lotion have done wonders for me. 100% recommend them both.

For what its worth, I use Stridex Red exfoliating pads as well (after my shower, 20 minutes before I apply the lotion).

u/MrPeriodical · 2 pointsr/beards

I've been using minoxidil for a couple months too.

When i started I didn't notice shedding on my face, but that may have been because I had nearly no facial hair at all. (I did also start applying it to my hairline, and I noticed shedding there)

No rashes, no itching, or anything.

For the first two weeks I kept shaving everything off, then I decided I to just let it grow. Now I just trim it to 4.5mm everyday. I make sure to rub in enough that it reaches my skin under the hair.

I plan on applying it until my beard looks something like this. Then I can be sure it will grow back if I cut it.

I use this foam. The foam is simple to apply and dries super fast. I rub it in the morning and at night. I also use this face wash because the alcohol in the foam started drying my face out.

u/OrangesAreLove · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I think my self care routine is more pamper-y, Ive been picking at my skin and eyebrows so much lately because I’m not feeling so good so for me its this cleanser: CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser, 12 oz. (Packaging May Vary) https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B000YJ2SKM/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_AzEzCbBT1BR2T

u/treelets · 2 pointsr/SkincareAddiction
  • Oil Cleanser (Nighttime Only): Innisfree Apple Juicy Cleansing Oil $17.99; oil cleanser helps to melt off makeup and sunscreen and emulsifies with water for a clean finish. Note: You don't have to use a special oil cleanser, you can also use grapeseed oil, additive-free mineral oil, jojoba oil, or olive oil, just be aware you will typically require a second cleanse to completely remove the oil from your face. I personally use neem oil which is antimicrobial and antifungal because of adult acne, but it is a drying face oil.

  • Cleanser: CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser $11-17; has ceramides, glycerin, and hyaluronic acid. Has the appropriate 4.5 pH necessary for cleansers.

  • Serum: OST Pure Vitamin C Serum $18.49; will help with evening and brightening skin tone, complexion clarity, and anti-aging -- requires long-term consistent use to see max benefit.

  • Hydrating Toner: Rohto Hadalabo Gokujyn Hyaluronic Acid Lotion (Moist) $17.54; contains hyaluronic acid and other hyaluronates, helps to lock liquid in skin, try to apply to slightly damp skin to max benefit. The HA needs moisture to grab onto and some people experience drying if they apply a product with high HA on dry skin.

  • Hydrating Serum: Benton Snail Bee High Content Essence $17; contains snail secretion filtrate, aloe, glycerin, arbutin, naturally derived salicylic acid, and azelaic acid (review here for more info on ingredients}, helps with wound healing, redness, lightning PIH, and soothing inflammation.

  • Face Oil: Pura d'or 100% Pure & USDA Organic Argan Oil $19.99; high in fatty acids which helps moisturize and soothe irritated and dry skin, optional vendor: Garden of Wisdom. Note: A good face oil is a trial and error thing, you may prefer: avocado oil, passionfruit seed oil, rosehip seed oil, etc. Certain oils are more drying, others are richer and more moisturizing. You may have to engage in some research and experimentation to find which is right for you and most can be found for under $20 if you look.

  • Emulsion/Milk (Daytime Only): Hada-Labo Shirojyun Arbutin Milk $16.35; High hyaluronic acid and glycerin content, is slightly richer than the toner previously listed and can be used as a daytime moisturizer underneath your sunscreen. Arbutin is a skin-lightening ingredient that evens skin tone and fades PIH, but you can get Rohto Hada-Labo Gokujun Hyaluronic Acid Milk $15.86; which is the same thing but without the arbutin.

  • Sunscreen (Daytime Only): Up to you, one of the trickier products out there and I assume you have something you like already. Asian sunscreens tend to have a better cosmetic finish but rely on chemical sunscreen ingredients. I personally use EltaMD UV Lotion Broad-Spectrum SPF 30+ which is marketed for body but has the same ingredients as EltaMD's facial sunscreen.

  • Moisturizing Cream (Nighttime Only): Benton Snail Bee High Content Steam Cream $17.00; Contains snail secretion filtrate, peptides, fatty acid rich oils, and niacinamide to help moisturize, prevent water loss, and encourage wound-healing. One of the richest face creams I've personally tried with good ingredients for the price. For details on the ingredients, see here. Remember if your T-zone is oily, you don't have to apply it there!

    Option 2: EltaMD PM Therapy Moisturizer $22.13; high in niacinamide and linoleic acid to help restore skin's moisture. May need the aid of an occlusive like Vaseline or a sleeping pack (see below).

  • Special - Sleeping Pack: Option 1 Mizon Multi Function Formula Snail Wrinkle Care Sleeping Pack $14.98; Option 2 Etude House Moistfull Collagen Sleeping Pack $15.96; Option 3 Laneige Water Sleeping Pack EX $33.99; Sleeping packs are extra rich creams which go on top of all your other skin care at night to give you an extra boost in moisture. Similar to people putting a thin layer of Vaseline on at night, you put a thin layer of the sleeping pack on and sleep with it over night 2-3 times a week as needed. They're more of an extra thing, not an every day thing, much like a face mask.

    That is an example of a moisturizing and non-irritating East Asian skincare routine using products that are all $20 or under each (barring a couple options), each with good hydrating and anti-inflammatory actives. Almost all are available through Amazon or through a singular vendor like W2Beauty which usually has coupon codes and can combine shipping. Target will carry the Laneige line in stores, but it is more a mid-price range. I can't personally guarantee they'll work for you, but the starting points are all there for you to do the research yourself if need be.

u/LittleBitofPixieDust · 2 pointsr/JulyBumpers2017

My skin is definitely dryer than usual this winter. I use CeraVe Moisturizing Cream after I wash my face every time, and I use their Hydrating cleanser to wash my face. I usually use their standard foaming cleanser, but I switched when I noticed how dry my face had become. I still feel like I need something else, though, so I tried picking up the CeraVe night cream yesterday. I don't have feedback on it yet, but I really love their product line in general, so I'm guessing it will help.

u/jacknettle · 2 pointsr/feminineboys

/r/SkincareAddiction is the best thing ever. (Other than you guys, of course)

I use Cerave Cleanser and Moisturizing Lotion, and currently looking for a new exfoliate.


u/gigantic_trex · 2 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

I don't really follow, is the product a face wash? You said your routine is lotion, the new product, an exfoliant, then moisturizer? Are you using it as a wash or leaving it on your face? Sorry, maybe I'm just misreading what you wrote.

Perfume sticks out to me in the ingredient list. Fragrances can be very irritating for a lot of people. You can plug it into CosDNA and see if there are other red flags. The site isn't perfect and everyone's skin is different, but it can be a good place to start.

If that face wash is drying and causing problems for you, I would look for something else. This sub loves CeraVe, either hydrating or foaming. A hydrating or creamy cleanser may be better than foaming since your current one is making you feel dry and your skin is normal. I use Vanicream which is pretty minimal. It lathers up a bit so you feel like you're getting clean but it's not stripping or drying.

Here is the HG cleanser thread with a lot of good options too. You'll find something that works!

u/Thoriel · 2 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

This is a great guide on Oil Cleansing. I personally use this Argan Oil and then CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser to wash off the oil and then proeceed with my routine.

EtA: Please ask if you have any more questions regarding this issue (including timing, etc.). My main concerns with my own skin is dryness + enlarged/clogged pores and my knowledge base reflects that.

u/_ihavemanynames_ · 1 pointr/SkincareAddiction

Hi :)

It sounds like you either have combination skin (when you have an oily forehead/nose and the rest is dry) or your skin is dehydrated (when your skin is dry but can overproduce oil to compensate).

To be on the safe side, I'd try a very gentle cleanser first, like Cerave Hydrating Cleanser or Neutrogena Ultra Gentle Hydrating Cleanser; they're both very affordable. Be sure to patch test first.

A chemical exfoliant can help with clogged pores and acne, but I'd make sure you've got the basics down first: cleanser, moisturizer, sunscreen.

What moisturizer are you currently using?

u/GalinToronto · 1 pointr/OkCupid

Cerave, same as you! I don't think it leaves muck on your skin, just make sure it's all off and your skin feels smooth and free of residue. I do recommend trying this, but patch test it: here. It's so worth it, I use such a small amount every time I put it on, so it's going to last me months.

CeraVe also has this cleanser for dry skin!

u/super101 · 1 pointr/SkincareAddiction

tub one



Are these the 2 you're talking about?

Also, do you have a favourite lip balm? Sometimes the sides of my lips get a bit red/dry and are really annoying?

u/tatumd · 1 pointr/SkincareAddiction

That was some awesome advice you got from daisyismydog. Now to put some of that into practice with a starting routine:

Spash water on face
Moisturize with this if you get dry

Wash face with this if your skin is dry or this if it's oily. You could try both and see which you prefer.
Then use these
Moisturize with the same cream I recommended from the morning (CeraVe tub)

All the products except for the sunscreen can also be found at CVS and many other drugstores if you prefer to pick them up locally. If you wanted to buy everything locally a dermatologist recommended this a week ago or so, but I haven't tried it.

u/newfangl3d · 1 pointr/SkincareAddictionUK

It can be overwheling at first, but it helps to focus on one step at a time. Let's say you're starting with a cleanser. As you have dry, sensitive skin you may have better luck with a cream cleanser (rather than foaming). I really like the CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser but it's on the pricier side and not as easy to find on the High Street. If you'd prefer something more affordable/convenient you could try Simple Kind To Skin Purifying Cleansing Lotion which is on offer at Superdrug atm.

Unfortunately there is some trial and error involved as everyone's skin is different. You may have to buy a few different things before you find what works for you. But you can always sell them on in our Sunday Swap thread :).

u/tacfan · 1 pointr/SkincareAddiction

I second the OCM suggestion. I had a large patch of dry skin that has responded amazingly to oil cleansing.

Additionally, I recommend Healin' Hollers Witness Oil as a moisturizer. It has hemp oil, jojoba oil, green tea extract and gotu kola.

u/tag_bitch · 1 pointr/AsianBeauty

I have oily/combo skin and I found it to be a bit on the drying side for sure, two suitable substitutes that I've personally used are the Tosoowoong EPW. It's a lot less drying to me and contains papain to gently exfoliate. If you wanna veer completely off the path of more "drying" cleansers, I absolutely love the Cerave Hydrating Cleanser, but you have to use a first cleanser with it, it alone is 100% not enough to remove any make-up or sunscreen.

I've been using this Cerave Hydrating Cleanser for years. It is absolutely my holy grail. It is very gentle for dry and/or sensitive skin. It has ceramides and Hyaluronic acid, which are my 2 favorite ingredients. If your skin is sensitive to Cetearyl alcohol, stay clear of this one. If not, it is worth to to look into. Simple, good ingredients, cheap and effective.


u/dmgb · 1 pointr/SkincareAddiction

it was for moisturizer. I haven't tried OCM. I do oil pulling for my teeth but that's as far as I've gotten for any kind of oil 'treatment'.

Current routine is in the morning I just wash with warm water in the shower, use Go 360 Deep Clean cleanser. Twice a week I use a microderm scrub. I finish with tea tree oil (which makes my skin feel insanely smooth and clean for about 5 minutes).

After my face dries I use Aquaphor moisturizer then let that dry before applying makeup. I have to reapply powder about 2 times a day because my face gets so oily.

At night I wash with soap and water and then use a Neutragina make-up remover wipe and then moisturize with a pore minimizing cream.

I wake up in the morning and everything looks exactly the same as the day before. I'm currently looking up some rosacea-specific creams to possibly invest in. The redness and huge pores have become the real issue. I get an occasional zit here and there, but it's nothing crazy anymore.

EDIT: I've been looking up some products to maybe look into and have come across these: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5

u/where_am_eye_lol · 1 pointr/SkincareAddiction


Totally new to this skincare stuff :~). Love the wiki, but I'm still confused about selecting products. I have dry (a bit sensitive) light olive skin...sometimes I get acne when my skin dries out too much, but never had much of an issue (no makeup and have sensitive-skin soaps). Unfortunately I can't do fragrances either, since I have a really sensitive nose.

According to the wiki, there's basically 4 things I need to get for a routine: cleanser, moisturizer, exfoliant, and sunscreen. So far I've come up with:

u/Jarvan_v · 1 pointr/AsianBeauty


u/AltimaNEO · 1 pointr/SkincareAddiction

Its the Hydrating Cleaner, instead of the Foaming Facial Cleanser.

I personally use the foaming one, since I have oily skin, so I need the stronger cleanser. But it seems you may have dryer skin and might benefit from the gentler hydrating cleanser.

u/simplemfa · 1 pointr/SkincareAddiction

I've just started to really take care of my skin at 30 and I swear I'm pulling a Benjamin Button. I'm new to this and read through the wiki, but I'm welcome to getting recommendations on my routine and products:

Face wash: CeraVe Hyrdating Cleanser

Black and White Bleaching Cream (to help with all of the black spots from razor bumps over the years.)

Sunscreen for when I know I'll be in the sun all day: Skin Auqua Moisture Milk

Day to day sun screen: Coui Facial Sunscreen

Day time moisturizer:CeraVe Moisturizing Cream(Really love this one! It doesn't make me feel hot and sticky on my skin)

Night time skin moisturizer: Some cocoa butter cream I got from a drugstore a while back.

Exfoliator: St. Ives Care Pads (This one I wasn't super excited about, it made my face feel dry. Any recommendations for a new one?)

Thinking of getting this face exfoliator. Thoughts?

    Recommendations for a Hypoallergenic moisturizer and Sunscreen
u/kawausokoi · 1 pointr/SkincareAddiction

I'm on 0.04% and am a very fair skinned female (Celtic and Nordic descent) living in California. Even though I'm not typically outside for more than 20% of my day, I still wear a higher SPF/PA++++ because with the tretinoin the risk of sun damage is significantly increased. Any time you leave the house during the day or sit next to a window, you're being exposed to UV of some sort. Do you drive to work? Walk to the store? It may not seem like it, but all those little instances add up. Plus, if you're wearing a chemical sunscreen and not reapplying, it could be entirely broken down by the time you take your lunch break or leave work.

When I started on tretinoin, I had to go very slowly. Even every other night could get to be too much. I'd notice that with specific products (LaRoche Posay Helios sunscreen) my face felt like it was burning on contact, but there was no additional redness. I would also break out far worse when my skin was in that state. I'd damaged my moisture barrier by over-doing the tretinoin, not moisturizing enough, and not staying hydrated.

I also noticed that with the 0.04%, and recent hormonal changes, my skin didn't like oils anymore. A little Argan or Jojoba here and there is ok for me now, but I had to stop them entirely for at least a month before my skin cleared everything.

You're on 0.08%, which is twice the strength of my script. I think you may have dehydrated your skin and damaged your moisture barrier. The CeraVe PM may not be enough right now. From looking at your routine, it seems as though you're over-cleansing with the foaming wash and Clairsonic. Maybe try the CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser in the AM or just rinse with water in the AM and use the CeraVe Hydrating at night.

Try stopping the Retin-A for two nights, then do every third night for a week or two, then every other night. I would also back off of the manual exfoliation (Clairsonic) and clay/charcoal masks until the breakouts clear up. With a higher concentration tretinoin in combination with the azelaic acid in the AM, your skin is probably really sensitive now.

I know I recommended the Biore Aqua Riche earlier, but after reading your routine I recommend a more hydrating sunscreen like Elta MD or my new favorite Korean Jelly Sunscreen.

I also highly recommend taking a D3 supplement with some fish oil supplements in the morning and a calcium supplement with dinner. These seem to have helped me a lot, along with taking a much more gentle approach to my skin.

I have eczema and rosacea on my cheeks. My dermatologist gave me several samples of Cetaphil Restoraderm Calming Moisturizer for my eczema. It worked really well and I ended up buying the 10 oz bottle.

Also, I don't know what you use to wash your face with, but I was given samples of Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser and CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser and they have helped me tremendously with acne/eczema.

Hello all. 21 year old male here and need some help.

So my skin is super messed up. It's super dehydrated. I drink 2 liters of water throughout the day.

I posted and got recommended to use the following:

Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% - I don't think this has done much for me, and don't plan to purchase this again.

The second was a moisturizer with Ceramide [This one from Amazon] (https://www.amazon.com/First-Aid-Beauty-Intense-Hydration/dp/B0065I0UMO?th=1)

CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser - [This one from Amazon] (https://www.amazon.co.uk/CeraVe-Hydrating-Cleanser-Packaging-Vary/dp/B000YJ2SKM/ref=sr_1_1_a_it?ie=UTF8&qid=1523994801&sr=8-1&keywords=hydrating+cleanser+cerave)

So far the cleanser is the only good one I've used. I also purchased Vit C serum to help rid of pimple scars and forehead wrinkles.

Also used Rosehip Oil, but don't think it's worked.

I'd appreciate any advice. I've heard Rose Water works well, how well can anyone confirm? Thanks!

u/Aingeala · 1 pointr/SkincareAddiction

You may be experiencing a reaction to the alcohol in the wipes, which can be quite drying. Your skin type sounds like it might be dry, which can often become oily feeling due to the skin producing an overabundance of oil in order to accommodate the dryness (like after using wipes with alcohol in them).

I don't have any wipes specifically to recommend, I feel that they tend to leave films on the skin which can cause clogging. However, if you're looking for a wipe to use before cleansing there are these ones which appear to be non-irritating and good for dry skin. Are you specifically opposed to using a regular cleanser like Cerave Hydrating Cleanser? This cleanser would be my number one recommendation, and it's drugstore priced.

u/balsooma · 1 pointr/SkincareAddiction

Foaming cleansers tend to be drying! But I do think that starting off with a mineral oil massage before using your cerave cleanser will help.

Here's a repost of suggestions that I commented above to /u/jahitzuku regarding more gentle cleanser recommendations!

I use and enjoy the Garnier cream cleanser and the Korres Milk Proteins Foaming Cleanser, both are very gentle and non drying (even though the Korres says it is 'foaming', it is not very sudsy at all and I feel like it's more of a cream cleanser). Check out the ingredients to see if they're right for you!

Other than those two, around here I've seen the Neutrogena Ultra Gentle Hydrating Cleanser or the Cerave Hydrating Cleanser recommended as gentle cleansers.

Also, for face I use this, the chemical isn't in it either

I think you need to revamp your entire skin routine to resolve this. Rule #1, be gentle, not only in exfoliation methods whether those be physical or chemical, but also you should pay attention to the chemicals you are putting on your face (ie products that are conflicting each other and if anything you're putting on your face is even what you need).
I would suggest washing with CeraVe for dry skin (it's inexpensive, super gentle, feels great!). Use a Konjac sponge if you don't have a Clarisonic (if you do use a Clarisonic only use the softest level of brush head and maybe only do it once a day properly meaning use a lot of water and plenty of cleanser to get the proper slip going on to not over aggravate your skin).
Only use mildly warm water, never hot, do not ever scrub your skin. Just gently exfoliate if doing physical exfoliation. You will need to do some form of gentle exfolation to remove the dead skin regularly.
If you wear make up start doing double oil cleansing. If you do not wear make up just ignore this sentence lol.
When you're done washing your face if you're going to bed: get an antioxidant serum to help support your skin, then layer a very good moisturizer, and then a "sealer" so a face cream that works that's heavier on top of that, maybe even add a few drops of oil to your final cream layer.

Go to bed: wake up, wash gently, pat dry, anti oxidant serum, daytime SPF at least 20 or more. If you find your SPF is too drying then you need to search for one that has some oil in it probably. I suggest using Supergoop Mineral for that.

I know it sounds like a lot but it really isn't. The main thing is just getting your products lined up and then wash/dry/apply. It just takes a few minutes, I promise, and your skin will look amazing.

If your skin can tolerate it- I'd try adding some AHA's to your routine also like a glycolic acid treatment a few times a week.

Issue: Skin keeps feeling too "tight"

Alternative to CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser?

u/topknot1975 · 1 pointr/SkincareAddiction

Stick with the CeraVe HYDRATING cleanser; it's NON-foaming and has a creamy milk consistency (green label).

I think the Bioderma Sensibio H2O micellar water could be great product for you! You could also try a double cleanse: face oil cleanser + face wash. Don't be scared of all oils! I know it sounds scary putting oil on your face but think of it this way: your skin is already producing oil, sebum. It's just producing too much of it. But using oils is beneficial, even on acne prone skin: 1. oil attracts oil which is why it breaks down makeup so well (makeup is pretty much made of oil); 2. many contain nutrients that your skin is missing or have antioxidants that protect your skin; and 3. they add a layer of protection to your moisture barrier, particularly if you use any "actives" which are chemically exfoliating skin off your face (tretinoin turns skin cell over, BHA dissolves oil on skin surface and within pore, etc.).

Here's a list of acne-safe face cleanser oils - the Koreans and Japanese prob make the best ones since they're the folks that started the double cleanse. Here's why [rosehip seed oil is good for acne-prone skin] (https://labmuffin.com/why-linoleic-acid-and-rosehip-oil-might-fix-your-skin/) (Acne-prone skin tends to have a low % of linoleic acid and high % of oleic acid in the sebum. It’s thought that these low levels could be one of the things causing acne.) and here's info on [beneficial oils for acne prone skin] (https://bodyunburdened.com/5-face-oils-for-naturally-clear-flawless-skin/).

And if you can eat whatever you want and still have clear skin, you're one lucky person!!

Hi /r/SkincareAddiction! I just started reading about skincare and after looking through the FAQ and product recommendations, I was wondering if it's unusual or incorrect to use an AM moisturizer at night. I'm a man so I was wondering if there is any concern behind using different products or different things I should prioritize? I have normal skin and am looking for budget products so I'm thinking of using the Neutrogena Oil-Free Moisture With Broad Spectrum Spf 35 Sunscreen as an AM/PM moisturizer and the CeraVe Hydrating Facial Cleanser for Daily Face Washing, Dry to Normal Skin for the cleanser (because it was on the recommendations). Also, I hope my product names weren't unusual, I couldn't discern what was important and what wasn't in the titles so I just removed the amount of product listed.

Don't irritate your skin if you don't have to. Salicylic Acid will probably dry you out. Stick to something like this:
