In this thread we discuss tips and tricks plus experiences good or bad with our skin.
>What type of skin do you have and what prob;ems do you have with it? has anything worked?
>What is your skin care regiment?
>shaving tips as well since we are men and that is skin care


I am allergic to every moisturizer in existence and it drives me up the wall because I will be dry and apply product only to find it irritating days later. Anyone have any tips?
I tried to use sunscreen as a moisturizer because I read online it can be a good choice for those of us with sensitive skin and I am waiting to see if it helps at all.

My skincare routine is to wash my face with a cleanser (soap free) and then use an every day exfoliation cream and try to limit how often I wash my face. I have OCD so I wash myself very often and it makes my skin so dry and red it is really a nightmare.

My fucking eyelids are getting chapped and sore. This has never happened to me before. What do you guys recommend? I’ve tried baby oil and chapstick cause it’s what I have on hand and between the two chapstick is working better but it still stings for some reason.

Get some oral vitamin C to help with collagen synthesis. I don't recommend applying a vitamin C serum on an irritated skin as it can increase the itch due to ph difference.
Also add in the normals advice to drink water. Avoid the sun for now (if you can) or use sunglasses.

If you can afford it, buy a hyaluronic acid solution or cream and apply it on your eyelids. It should give you enough local hydration to reduce the chapped aspect and hopefully soreness.

Sugar and salt will dehydrate your skin, and therefore bloat it almost immediately, but unless you check your face in the mirror every few hours who cares?

Why would a wizard care if they're bloated?

no they don't, they eat shit fast food and drink 5 Pepsis a day. literally cutting out junk food or sugar will clear up your skin. cerave will solve most of your skin problems, if not see a fucking dermatologist. it's not hard to wash your face and slap some on.

 No.286706

Skin is very puzzling. Never noticed any relation between what I eat and my skin, though some people can definitely have breakouts when they eat specific items they're sensitive to, don't know how it works.

I have rosacea. My cheeks, chin, and forehead are always blushed. When I scratch (even very gently) any part of it, that bit stays red for like a minute or two. It's not painful and I don't notice it unless I were to see my reflection, but if I scratch any part of my face people will always ask, "Why is this bit of your face so red?"

I have very oily skin and even during the periods where I'd do my routine twice a day I had to constantly wipe my face with a napkin every couple of hours because it would get so greasy (kinda like how that pedo streamer Vaush always looks). My face would then look completely red for a minute or two and if I did it around others I'd get stares and people would ask why I was blushing.

Now I only shower, and therefore wash my face, about once a week, twice at most. As the week goes by it gets oilier and rougher, but when I finally shower it feels and looks perfectly silky smooth for about two days. I have to scrap so much dead skin. Writing it down I realize it sounds rather disgusting, but doing it feels satisfying and fun, and my skin feels so smooth afterwards.

 No.286707

>>286706
Oh, shit, forgot to add. During the periods where I've starved myself only eating a couple food items per day it would get very dry and rough while still being very oily, though I would also shower less frequently during those times.

So in my case I think very oily skin is definitely my genetics. Perhaps a dermatologist could have some useful treatment, but I'm not too inconvenienced and I'm pretty sure rosacea can't be cured anyway (was diagnosed as a teen).

You probably weren't here for the masculinity threads but yeah, there is a very vocal minority here who are very feminine and have issues with masculinity, dislike anything typical of men, and dislike males in general.
Usually gay but hate men so that is why they don't have sex despite horny posting on /b/ all the time kind of people.

Not very surprising when masculinity has been used as a weapon to bully and shame many wizards for being failures according to its standards.

I'm not feminine or anti-masculinity in any way, but you also have to recognize that a lot of what passes for masculinity is either harmful (like not taking proper precautions at work) or arbitrary nonsense.

>Not very surprising when masculinity has been used as a weapon to bully and shame many wizards for being failures according to its standards.
It was the opicet for me.
Since school was so female mindset focused as was every other institution that dealt with kids, I was constantly shamed, demonized, and overall just treated as defective for normal masculine behavor or having normal masculine interest as a young energetic boy.
The gold standard for behavor and interest was always to act more like the succubi. To think the way succubi think, to emote how they emoted.
If you know anything about the hypermasculization theory of autism, and I tell you that I am a high functioning autistic who can't be socially coerced into going totally against my nature, and you can probably extrapolate that I didn't get on very well in my grade school years specifically because of my masculinity.

I think you would also realize how much damage and resentment is caused by trying to force little boys to behave like little succubi while culture and society demonized everything masculine besides being directly useful to succubi.

You could also see why someone who is tired of gynocentric bullshit would gravitate to a all male space like wizchan if they qualify as a wizard.

 No.286808

>>286805
For the most part these negative experiences of male behavior were of the "male-not-masculine" behaviors and activities for me. Masculinity is the resounding shaming mark of the 'manchild,' the male who refuses to abandon male behaviors permissible but frowned upon at some phase in life for socially respectable masculine behaviors.
Physical energy - male. Wants to expend that physical energy in the playground, climbing trees, in the exploration of 3d physical space, and does not want to spend it in controlled athletics or competitive sports doing pre-specified and pre-approved activities? Not masculine. Teachers didn't have problems with boys who exhausted themselves playing soccer. Climbing the monkey bars incorrectly or too many times though and you bet you'd get whistled at.
Adult behaviors - masturbation? Male, certainly. Masculine, noooooo, coooooomer. Science fiction. Male, yes. Masculine? No, though no longer actively stigmatized. Electronics collections. Software hobbyism/open source. Comic books. Showering regularly (surprising but true, succubi shower less than half as often as males). All male, all immasculine, all lead to immediate accusations of eunuch trannyist tendency. Drinking? Sport? Car? Muscle? Money? That Which Is Approved Of And Of Interest And Benefit To Succubi? TRVE MASCULINE.

Do you actually believe that no one would do what >>286802 says and use the cultural conception of masculinity to "bully and shame many wizards," or perhaps that late in life virginity must be masculine since it is more or less exclusively male?

You guys also seem to forget that one of the most important and valued masculine traits is having a ton of sex with as many attractive sluts as possible. From the perspective of masculinity it's hard to be any more of a loser or failure than a wizard, shy of straight-up taking female hormones.

And yet, despite being a 5'3 23-yo virgin, I am still a male whose body produces testosterone. Naturally, masculinity has been invoked many times to mock and bully me, but I am not against masculinity in itself or any masculine behaviors. I naturally gravitate towards masculine things and I don't think there's anything feminine about me besides maybe sometimes appreciating cute girly anime/manga/VN (and even then I think it comes from a masculine perspective since succs have accused my tastes of being sexist and objectifying of succubi). I don't choose to go after the things I like, that's just how I am.

But I still and always remain suspicious of the use of the concept masculinity to get men to be different than they are when they are already "simply" men, especially when this is something they can't control and just have to live with, or when it involves doing something dangerous that is advantageous to the other person, like a boss pushing his workers to overwork or not take proper precautions.

Read about it: acne conditions often from 3 sources: cereals, dairy and sugars, all of them forming crusts of pure filth in you colon while mixed with trophologically incompatible food due dietetic ignorance.

>>286269
Also personal metabolism conditions are to be acknowledged, but know that this upsurge of toxins can precisely be the sign you just needed to know that your body starts pulling toxins away when you just take minimal changes in your diet.
Beware of being liike those ones who felt the effects of fasting the first time they tried and then they thought it was a bad thing when reality was that their body was actually starting to cleanse itself from depth.
