Here's my daily routine before bed and when I wake up. Night: Splash face with warm water a few times. Use Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser (available at any drugstore) for about a minute. Rub face gently. Wash cleanser off with warm water. Pat face dry with designated face towel, which is changed weekly. Pop any pimples that have visible pus on the surface; this means they are ready to be taken out. Apply a small amount of 5% benzoyl peroxide, followed by 1% Clindamycin Phosphate onto any pimples. Rinse hands to get rid of any acne medication. Apply Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion to any areas without pimples. Day: Wash face again with Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser, then apply Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion to face/neck. http://www.amazon.com/Cetaphil-Gentl...0920147&sr=8-1 http://www.amazon.com/Cetaphil-Fragr...0920147&sr=8-3 Buy the pump over the jar version of face products so bacteria is less likely to form. Get non-comedogenic and fragrance-free products. Eucerin products are even better for really dry skin, but I like Cetaphil for non-irritating, fragrance-free products. Use Eucerin Moisturizing Lotion for the rest of your body, remember to always buy fragrance-free products.

An ounce of protection, and all that really fits here. For the longest time I was resigned to the occasional outbreak, but now I just keep to a 10 minute routine morning and night to moisturize my situation and maintain my sexy. Feels good man.

I believe the exact quote was "preserve my sexy." A for effort, though!

just kidding.

go to any chinese, korean, or japanese supermarket, and they sell some scrubbing towels that work great to remove dead skin

What would be the equivalent of these scrubbing towels in a store like Target?

Should I exfoliate the parts of my skin where I do not shave? Forehead, cheeks, under eyes, nose, etc.?

Thanks.

Yup, exfoliate everywhere except the immediate eye area (underneath/eyelids because the skin is sensitive there).

I've always had sensitive skin, and it is dry a lot of the year. I'm 31, so I've tried alot of shit by now. The best combo I've found is washing with Desert Essense "Thoroughly Clean Face Wash". It is castille soap and can be found at Whole Foods. It's similar to Dr. Bronners. It lathers up really nice, and washes away very rapidly. I just scrub my face real good with my hands during my morning shower. After that, the only thing I put on my face is Clinique's "Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion". Not the gel, but the lotion. That's it. Once a day. People screw their face up by cleaning too many times during the day, especially if they are prone to being dry.

I will say that my 2nd favorite product line is Cetaphil. Don't expect a lather though. But it is the least irritant product on the market.

My skin is dry and sensitive so I just end up not washing it, though I shave everyday and figure that that is exfoliating it. Is it just a bad idea to not wash my face with anything?

my girlfriend left some stuff in the shower; i use this once a week, or when i've got a day's worth of sunscreen soaked into my face, it isn't very pleasant and feels like you've died at sea and your corpse washed up on a shore



and i use this the rest of the time and it feels great, like an archangel is sprezzin on your face or sommat

How often should you exfoliate? It seems like when I do it more than once a week my face gets oily a lot quicker...
