Default Skincare & Cosmetics



A thread for questions, answers, reviews, and sharing about your favorite skincare products, makeup tools and techniques, and anything else that comes up relating to health, skincare, beauty, and practical applications of such.

To start the thread off I'll include some general information about skincare and skin types, and then later get into even more basics (skincare products, routines, etc).

Skincare is for everyone, and although the topic is commonly paired with makeup and the use of cosmetics, it's necessary for everyone to understand how to take care of their skin - but they don't make it easy to figure out!

In my experience my dermatologist is only good for writing my prescriptions, otherwise she has given me no useful information about taking care of my skin and everything I've learned about my skin type, the changes in my skin as I've aged, and the products that proved to be effective in my own skincare journey over the past six months was found through researching online, in tiktoks, and on youtube. Here I will summarize my findings.
__________________________________________________ _______________

Skin Types

Your skin type is largely determined by genetics, although it will also be affected by environmental and hormonal factors and can change with time.

There are five types of healthy skin: normal, dry, oily, combination (both oily and dry skin) and sensitive.




It is important to know your skin type in order to ensure that any skin care products you use are chosen with your skin type in mind. If the product isn't right for your skin type it either a) won't be as effective, and b) will aggravate existing skin issues and/or create new ones.

Taking good care of your skin is important for more than just your appearance. As the largest organ you have, your skin is essential to your general health - if you take care of it, it can help take care of you in the long run.

Caring for your skin is just as important as your other daily hygienic routines - oral health and hair care, for example. Skin cells are being shed constantly, so even if our skin looks fine today, without regular skincare practices tomorrow your skin could be broken out, dry, aged and dull looking.

When we look better we feel better, when we feel better we make better choices in terms of diet, exercise, and mental health, and when we routinely make good choices in those realms it is easier to see the benefits of our work and keep it up habitually, but it also becomes easier to confront daily stressors, problem solve effectively, generally operate in your day-to-day more efficiently, and overall just feel better in your body.

Before moving on, I'm curious if anyone else is currently undergoing a skincare journey (now that a lot of us are in our 30s) or has any insight into the health benefits of skincare with personal experiences. What is your skin type? What is your current routine? Any success/horror stories to share?

There's a great split cassette from Toiletgurgling Fecal Shower &
Hemorrhoidal Anal Suffering called Facial Skin Care that's a must-have.

Girl this is a thread I didn't know I needed. I probably have a combination skin type. Never had any real issues but my skin isn't great either, especially with COVID masks I sometimes get pimples in the greasier spots. I just wash my face with water a few times every day but that's it so throw you skincare wisdom at me if you have tips

Great thread idea WWWP. I am very interested in working on skincare as mine is non existent.

I am really grateful that you mentioned a dermatologist as if I can access one in the future I will create a list of questions to have them answer for me. I am looking forward to seeing your research.

I'm 34 and I have Ehlers Danlos Syndrome which means my skin stays rejuvenated and youthful so I tend to look ten years younger. And before anyone says anything I'm not boasting as I'd rather not be in 24/7 chronic pain and injuring myself all the time.

Using your tests I believe I'm combination (with a hint of sensitive as well)
Due to years of battling mental health I will say that I haven't done my skin any favours. I use exfoliating face wash with a face cloth and then a sunscreen based moisturising cream to finish. On the weekends I do black charcoal masks but I think they are out of fashion now.

Great topic, I look forward to seeing more.

Infections? Are you getting infections because you're scratching so hard you break the skin? Or is it from a buildup up dead skin cells and shit? Have you tried nothing and you're all out of ideas? Need more info, this could be a lot of things - general irritation to fungal or bacterial infections... It's a process of elimination, really. I know I'm going to regret it but can you post a picture?

I mean if I don't wash my hair my hair will get greasy within a day and my scalp will get itchy and have dead skin patches and get infections I can pop that will release blood and stuff.

And like I'm aware this is an issue of a dry scalp but in the summer especially this becomes unmanageable and I either wash my hair every day or have interminable scalp itch.

You might have something along the lines of seborrheic dermatitis, obviously just guessing but I know from my own experience that my scalp gets really sore if I don’t wash my hair regularly.
