Very dry skin and showering

Recommended Posts

I am a 29 year old male and have had body acne starting at about 14. Mostly on my chest and till I was 20 also on my back. (Black and white heads.)

Over the years I have build up quite a lot of scars.

I also have very dry skin.

After years I just found out the solution to my acne problem. It seems that too long and warm showers wash off (maybe melt) the natural oil layer on my skin. Without this layer, bacteria have easy access to my skin. (This is what I think is happening.)

I now only take cold showers of about 1 minute once a day. And this is the solution for me.

Just wanted to post this because there are probably a lot more people with my skin type.
