And going by that jambalaya of gunk that EvilLocks uses; she should look no older than 17.
I call bullshit on all this stuff!
Hahahaha. I don't look 17. But people say I look between 18-22 usually. But that's mostly genetics. Skin care is just the tip of the iceberg lol

We are not meant to cake our faces and torsos in this concoction of chemical substances we can't even pronounce.
I think the foods and drinks we put in our mouth is equally bad or worse haha. Anyway half of the stuff I mentioned is supposed to be washed off the skin, so it never enters the bloodstream. I feel like hair loss treatments are pretty hardcore too when it comes to chemicals and nasty stuff.
of course be aware of what you put on your skin but I think there are more bad things to do that skin care :straight-smile:

damn, how old are you? Why don't you use tretinoin? Also, how did you start learning about all these products?

In the past i've used:

morning

cerave hydrating facial cleanser
tone with cosrx glycolic acid spray or use The Ordinary ascorbyl glucoside (a vitamin c serum thats supposed to be stable?)
moisturize with Clinique dramatically different moisturizing gel
top off with ROHTO skin aqua sunscreen

nighttime, after showering

tretinoin gel 0.05%
cerave PM facial moisturizing lotion


nowadays this is what i do:

morning

Tosowoong enzyme powder wash
the ordinary 2% salicyclic acid on my t zones (nose and forehead)
followed by The Ordinary ascorbyl glucoside
Cosrx Snail 92 cream (has snail mucous). If i want to look matte (my face is very oily), i'll use Clinique dramatically different moisturizing gel instead
Biore UV sunscreen i mentioned in thread earlier

nighttime, after showering

tretinoin gel 0.05%
cerave PM facial moisturizing lotion


not sure if the snail cream is breaking me out lately, but i've heard good things about it.

I might need some cheekbone/undereye fillers in the future since i have always had dark hallow circles under my eyes

Those masks that you posted seem like a good idea, instead of having to mix bentonite clay with apple cider vinegar which i've done once in a while since 2014

wat? I never said it wasn't. I explicitly said you're not outside in the sun as much during the winter as during summer. If you're outside the entire day skiing or whatever it would be a different story.

Ok, so we can establish that we agree on something. Although you can somewhat impact your bone structure development. I won't get into it as it's beside the point.
Your view of suncsreen is simplistic and one dimensional. You've ignored the impact that sunscreen has on your hormones and the environment. You like to sound like you're informed on the subject, so I don't know if you purposely leave this out or not. By pushing sunscreen which not only contains hormone disrupting ingredients but also lowers vitamin D levels from the actual sun protection you're creating soyboys (and intersex fish).
EvilLocks knows exactly what she is doing and doesn't need to be attacked by a boar of a man exhibiting unhealthy levels of masculinity.

If @EvilLocks happens to give birth to a male child with below average levels testosterone then I welcome this.
What's the problem???

We need more thoughtful and caring men in this world who are willing to let females take the lead.

Females are welcome to lead the way in terms of dating and sex, but also, they can lead the way in doing odd jobs around the house that were once the domain of incompetent men.
I really think it's best that you let your female partner do the odd maintenance chore because the ladies will usually think potential problems through, without smashing a hole in the wall due to frustration.

Lead the way, ladies!!

I make sure to wash my face with a tea tree oil soup then moisturize before I go to bed as well as before I leave the house (or when I wake up).

In the summer I apply the same kind of moisturizer (it's specifically against irritated/red skin) but with a sunscreen.

.. and that's it.

3 different girls were surprised when I told them my age and thought I was 3-4 years younger, so I'm probably doing something right.
Even when I’m lying on my back I’m never backing down.

This all sounds a little new age for me.

I forgot, I use tretinoin too, or differin which is a type of tretinoin. I use it x3 times a week only and retinol serum the other nights.
I guess I am just more than average interested in skin and skincare, if I wasn't 26 (to answer your question) and about to settle down with a husband, house and planning a family, I would probably get another education and become a dermatologist or something. Right now I work as a graphic designer, which is OK since I love graphic design and art, however working as a graphic designer isn't just making fun art like I love to, but also boring stuff that is not inspiring at all.

I know, it's probably the main reason why people always assume I am in my late teens or early 20s when in reality I am 26 :roll:

Your fiancé is quite lucky :p.

Maybe you should subtly remind her about it, maybe she forgot? :)
