I rarely have pimples on my face but when I do... it's really painful.
I usually get less than five (5) pimples in a span of three months or less.


Still... they are pimples. And they hurt af sometimes.


SO HOW DO YOU TAKE CARE OF YOUR SKIN?
I don't think this is only for women but also for men as well.
Having an OILY face is not only subjected to girls.


Right now, one of my biggest enemy are my blackheads.
It's annoying and they're all over my NOSE, mostly.


I'm curious what home remedies or facial care do you use to take care of your face and skin?


Skin products? Topical cream? Topical Ointment? Anything.


I could really use an effective technique that someone ACTUALLY TRIED IT OUT FOR THEMSELVES.

I have the same routine every morning and night. I wash my face with a gentle cleanser then i apply a mattifying lotion which is very suitable if you've got oily skin. Every now and then i use a face scrub. Don't wash your face any more often than this or it will dry out instead and try not to touch it. I don't use makeup, which is the cause of bad skin for many. Whenever you do get a pimple get some salicylic acid product on it.

I typically use a blackhead remover cream when I'm in the shower, seems to work better than just doing it over the sink. My face doesn't break out as much as it used to.

Since it's getting colder, dry skin is imminent. So lots of hand cream

Eat lots of peppers (cayenne, jalapeno, bell peppers, poblano, habanero, etc), that's how I look real handsome (I don't have a photo of myself to show you, but I'm am just as handsome or more than my avatar). Also you should eat lots of oatmeal, chocolate, walnuts, yogurt or sunflower seeds (I love them when their roasted).

If your face gets oily and dirty, wash with baking soda water. Though, I had the balls to wash my face with undissolved baking soda once and I still look fine. If you watched The Simpsons, then you should know that sweat cleans your skin and boy! did I work out a lot last week.

I'm super susceptible to acne but I've been having great results with Neutrogena Acne Wash + a facial moisturizer, it's more heavy duty than most face washes and it's oil free, it will dry tf out of your skin tho so make sure to get the moisturizer on shortly after you wash your face.

Blackheads are annoying but if you have lots of tiny black dots on your nose those are likely NOT blackheads. http://www.thegloss.com/beauty/nose-blackheads-little-dots-sebaceous-filaments-sebum/ Everyone has them, there is a way to get rid of them tho, I forget what they're called but they have a thing for them at Ulta Beauty, they hurt like hell but they'll do the job, I'd just go to your nearest Ulta Beauty or otherwise makeup/beauty store (I don't think sephora has stuff for that tho) and explain it to them and they can set you up.

If they are blackheads, I hear charcoal masks work pretty well, my bestie uses them, so you might wanna invest in one of those.

Good luck hon!

I rarely get pimples, but I do go spend money on products that are essentially overkill. It also pays to wear and reapply good sun screen regularly and to try and avoid mega-doses of sun exposure. I still would like to get a Cali gold tan though. Tanning is bad for your skin though...

I typically don't get acne or blackheads, but my hands can get pretty dry and start cracking or peeling (particularly in the space between the fingers) during the winter months. It's somewhat painful, especially if it gets bad enough to start bleeding.

I switched to using a liquid hand soap containing aloe and it's been much less of an issue ever since.

I only apply cream during night time, usually when I'm about to go to sleep (after washing my face).
Generally, don't really have problems with my skin it's just when something pops up, it really just ticks me off.

Oh, I'm scared to put strong chemicals on my face... salicylic acid is one. Topical ointment would do.

I'll start trying to put some face scrub as not to dry out my skin. Noted! :D

I really get lazy when applying lotions and hand cream as the weather here isn't as cold as winter, it becomes slimy and too sticky to apply onto my skin.

I've used a blackhead remover patch from Etude and it was so effective.

But I'm not really a fan of those hot stuff lol
I'd go for your suggestion of oatmeal, chocolates and (not so sour) yogurt instead :D

My skin might be sensitive with Baking soda and it may dry out my skin. (but I'll try)

That would be tough... because when I see a pimple, I can't help but observe it lol (I should stop poking it)

Charcoal mask? I'll try to ask at a cosmetic store if they have one here.
I'm pretty sure it's just blackheads, my derma told me so. :)
But thanks for that! Noted.

I don't think I'll be getting a tan since I'm Asian. (I have fair complexion and I don't like my skin getting darker)

I have products for my skin but I don't really buy expensive stuff for my face.,, unless it's really proven. :)

You can apply some lotion to keep your skin soft. :)

Hold up girl I actually found what I was talking about.

http://www.ulta.com/deep-cleansing-charcoal-pore-strips?productId=xlsImpprod12001093

These will do the trick. Again, they hurt but beauty is pain and I've heard good things about the results. Hope it works out <3

I assume you get your bed sheets, pillowcase, and bathroom towels changed/washed every day. I think those are the main culprits of blackheads.

I have never had acne problems or blackheads on my face. I get them like 2-3x a year.

Now my neck always has one around the collarbone. Those little suckers sting.

I also don't use any skincare on my face. Don't like the slimy feeling. I just wipe it off with a moist (hot) washcloth every other night.

Homemade soaps and a good scrubber. Lotion for my hands, elbows, and feet. The end.
