Recommend Products/anything Else [Pic]

10 posts in this topic

Hey all. I'm here looking for some recommendations, advice, guidance etc.

I'm a 21 year old male. Suffered from acne of varying levels for a good number of years - began around age 17 iirc. I've tried numerous different treatments, from prescriptions to off the shelf cleansers etc.

After many years of suffering I've decided to start taking this problem serious as it's really affecting my life too much.

Acne mainly affects my chin/lower cheeks, as well as under my nose, seldom having any impact above this line. It is often quite oily although can sometimes be dry too. I have lots of red marks/blemishes.

Would love some recommendations of what cleansers/moisturiser/ etc would be good for my skin. I live in the UK so please bare in mind I can't get hold of products from the US.

Not the best quality of pictures but hopefully gives some idea.

Cetaphil breaks many people out. Cerave is a bit better but not much. You're going to need to learn what ingredients to look for and do research of what is available to you. Personally, I use black soap. There are no chemicals to irritate your skin.

You go with the ratings, Ron. I go with the fact that it has pore-clogging ingredients and breaks many people out in whiteheads.

Appreciate the responses.

Cetaphil hasn't done a lot of good for me in the past to be honest - same with CeraVe.

Could possibly be caused by your phone? Was the first thing I thought of, because it's all around your chin. Do you touch your face a lot absentmindedly? I do at work sometimes, resting my face in my hands, or putting my phone on my face, and have learned to stop myself. Just a suggestion of one preventative measure!
