Is this them?

https://www.amazon.com/Olive-Oil-Nablus-Soap-count/dp/B00537QFK4

Edit: $25 to get one bar here in Canada...

u/TheMostEqual · 254 pointsr/interestingasfuck

I think it's Nablus soap from the West Bank.
 

I recall seeing this a few months or years ago. I'd imagine they get a spike in sales whenever this pops up on reddit. But they probably have no idea why.
 

Edit: a letter and an apostrophe

Here you go!

Olive Oil Nablus Soap (1 count) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00537QFK4/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_lsDpDbXBY4PNP

If that link doesnt work (because I’m on mobile), just search Nablus soap on amazon

I've had KP since I was a kid and am finally getting handle on it in my 30s. My current routine is glycolic lotion twice a day, creams on the affected areas 3-4 times a day, and then physical exfoliation and using zinc or sulfur soap a couple times a week to keep the bumps at bay. But since skincare is YMMV, here's the exhaustive list of almost two decades of treatment, in case some of these other things will work for you!

100% of the items can be purchased via Amazon in the US - it's pretty much the only way I shop.

Beginner Level

If your KP has just appeared, focus on physical+chemical exfoliation and moisturizing. Look for lotions with the following ingredients:

u/SuB2007 · 44 pointsr/muacjdiscussion

I feel like an "outlier" here in that I don't really have an HG anything. I have products that I like in all categories, but I feel like there are tons of options that work for me.

As for the body wash thing, you might consider one of the Aveeno fragrance free body washes. I use this one in the winter when my skin is really dry and itchy and it always works well for me.

u/fuckchalzone · 22 pointsr/wicked_edge

Here's what I would suggest:

Razor: either this one if you want to stay frugal or this one if you want to splurge a bit. I'd stay away from the QShave. It's a clone of a razor with a lot of design issues. One being that the head is so large it's hard to get under the nose, etc.; another issue is that it is extremely aggressive even at its lowest setting.

Brush: This synthetic brush. I think it's much better to start with a synthetic than a boar brush. Boar brushes are less comfortable on your face and actually make it more difficult to make lather until they break in. No reason to mess with those variables when you're just trying to get the hang of it. As for this specific synthetic brush, I have one and it is an amazing value for the money. It is one of about a dozen brushes I own, some of which were $200+, and this $12 brush holds its own with them.

Shaving soap: Lots of options here. Barrister & Mann's Latha line performs extremely well and is a great value. Several scents to choose from. Barrister &
Mann's Glissant line is a bit more expensive but has even better performance and more complex scents. Seville is a particularly good starting point with B&M, just an extremely clean, classic, masculine scent. Pre de Provence and Pre de Provence No. 63 are classic french soaps that smell great and perform very well.

Aftershave: Even more options here. You could go with Thayer's witch hazel with aloe, or if you want a traditional high alcohol aftershave, Fine Accoutrements is excellent. There are several scents, all based on popular and/or classic colognes. Or you could splurge and get the world's greatest aftershave product, L'Occitane Cade After Shave Balm.

Blades: Amazon has some good deals on blades in bulk but just sucks for sampler packs, and you want to start with a sampler pack because reasons. So head on over to TryABlade and order two of the "Top 10 Sampler." You can't use your Amazon credit there, but it's going to come to less than $10 including shipping.

So, if you go with the cheapest option in each category, you come out to fifty dollars or so if I'm adding right, which leaves you room to pick out one or more of those splurge options I mentioned.

u/ZeroAccess · 21 pointsr/oddlysatisfying

Last time this was posted I found out it's in Palestine and they are about $4/bar, or $15 from Amazon. This is something similar - https://www.amazon.com/Olive-Oil-Nablus-Soap-count/dp/B00537QFK4

It's called Nablusi, or Nablus soap, made with Olive Oil.....which sounds awful to shower with.

u/WearsSensibleShoes · 18 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

I've got OCD, and while my picking isn't as compulsive as some people's, it's a bitch. I've also got KP on my arms and thighs, and get incredibly ingrown hairs from shaving (and even when not shaving, but far fewer).

What I do. Scrubby nylon cloth with Aveeno unscented moisturizing body wash. Scrub scrub scrub, especially my upper arms and legs where the KP is.

After the shower, pat dry and apply Gold Bond Rough and Bumpy, which literally took me an entire tub to learn how to apply: hint, it's very thick, and doesn't spread easily, but use less than you think, because otherwise it just pills up and flakes off and is sticky and gross. But use just a little every day and it's magical.

Bonus avoiding picking: wear clothes that make it hard to pick; long tight pants, long sleeve shirts, socks, whatever. I compulsively pick at my toenails, and it's the grossest thing ever, so I wear socks 95% of the time so I can't physically pick at my feet.

Optional- I've stopped shaving, because the ingrown hairs just weren't worth it at all, but using an old fashioned safety razor and a new blade every shave (and only shaving once a week) really helped reduce the ingrowns. I used one side of the blade per leg. But like I said, I still got ingrown hair no matter what I did, so I've got body hair now and very few ingrown hairs comparatively. YMMV

u/armchairepicure · 14 pointsr/fragrance

So, brief internet research has revealed that bronhidrosis occurs due to a bacterial imbalance in your skin and that a basic treatment includes more rigorous hygiene rituals such as washing your underarms at least twice a day with an anti-bacterial soap where you lather for at least thirty seconds per washing and wearing anti-odor, anti-microbial socks and other garments.



If this approach does work (and I would think that your diagnosing physician should have given you strategies to combat this and if not, you should ask), then I strongly recommend adding in tea tree products to your hygiene routine, such as this shampoo and this body wash. Tea tree oil is naturally anti-microbial and anti-fungal and very refreshing.


If you get super desperate, you can also wipe down your armpits and groin with Hydrogen Peroxide every day for a week or two, but run that one by a doctor first. H2O2 is great at killing bacteria and it is something I have used in the past to balance my skin biome, but I also don’t have bromhidrosis.


You are also going to want to add laundry boosters (like borax or oxyclean) to your regular wash cycles because bacteria doesn’t always all die or get otherwise washed out every wash. A booster like Borax or Oxyclean inhibits enzymes, fungi, mold, and bacteria from causing your clothes to stink. You can use it every cycle along with your regular detergent, but you should also pre-soak your really stinky clothes for half an hour in warm water (half a cup per normal sized load should work, do NOT over stuff your washer).


As for masking your odor with a fragrance, don’t until you figure your skin stuff out. And than means eliminating anything you are currently using that might exacerbate bacterial imbalance. Swap out any moisturizers you are using for ones that are gentle and dermatologist approved (like Cetaphil products). A good dermatologist should be able to walk you through all of this stuff, though. So I’d say reach out to a doctor before following internet advice.

Okay, let's assume your attempts at humor are a deflection from your insecurities, so i'll give you legitimate advice.
First off, shave the beard and teenstache. You look best in your 2nd to last pic, I actually think that long hair suits you when it isn't wet, making it look sort of greasy.
Also, if you're 18 you are still very young, but you can start working on the things that will improve your appearance today! Exercise (bodyweight and cardio if you aren't comfortable going to the gym), eat healthier food, and drink tons of water. You can see a dermatologist about clearing up your skin and in the meantime, buy a body wash like this one https://www.amazon.com/dp/B010FHRA4G/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_RcVLyb7VSNCCN, it may work better for you than prescription acne products, you never know until you try for yourself!

I really do believe that artificial hormones really f with our systems (joys of being a woman). I have a friend who had to go back on birth control because, like you, going off made her skin freak out, and I got a hormonal IUD a year ago and have only just gotten my hormonal breakouts mostly under control.

I was suffering from cystic breakouts on my face and back (ow!!). My saving grace was sulfur soap - it made everything vanish within weeks. I don't get those painful cysts anymore!! It's super cheap, and the bar lasts for a while. I use it in the shower every day. It does smell but I find it doesn't linger after drying off (and the results are worth it regardless). I first learned about it from some obscure comment after hours of digging on r/SkincareAddiction and I wish it was more well-known because it really changed my skin.

u/Forester263 · 8 pointsr/malefashionadvice

So, my son (in the picture) has had eczema over most of his body, including his scalp, and we've always used a moisturizer called Cera Ve with good results. If your dry skin is related to eczema, my understanding is that it could be allergy related.

My son and I have been using "African black soap" for the last year or so, including our scalps. It seems to clean more gently and keeps skin moisturized. The kind I linked is probably the most popular, and we get it at Walgreens.

u/Gymnocalycium · 8 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

Use a zinc soap. This was recommended to me by a dermatologist.

u/Trent_3000 · 6 pointsr/FTMMen

I can tell you what products I use for mine. I've tried a lot of products. The stuff I like is

Beard Guyz Beard Serum with Grotein 20, 1 ounce https://www.amazon.com/dp/B06Y4DB3B6/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_Id6XCb47J3NRR

Cremo Styling Beard Cream,Thickening, 4 oz https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07MYF6JHY/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_Te6XCbBQNZJ84

Shea Moisture African Black Soap With Shea Butter 8 oz https://www.amazon.com/dp/B005C2N8IC/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_xn6XCbJRR90Z6

They've both been the best at making my beard look fuller and styling it. I think the beard serum worked best when it was shorter and the cremo works better with my longer beard now. Mine's pretty long so if I don't use product I look bad lol.

Beard shampoo isn't at all necessary and most of them include oils that block dht so they won't help grow your beard either. Waste of money. I just use african black soap. It's good for my face and my beard. Also it doesn't contain any parabens or propylene glycol.

All that being said. You can always pick up a basic beard balm and use the same soap you wash with. Just don't get anything with dht blocking oils such as lavender oil, rosemary oil, tea tree oil, pumpkin seed oil, saw palmetto oil, and emu oil.

u/[deleted] · 6 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

I had really bad upper bacne. What solved it for me was using an italy towel or a [salux] (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B007IAE5WY/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1) towel and [this] (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00606RORK/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1) soap. Not the best lather but I have no bacne what so ever and the scars are going away too :) Just need to remember to patch test it first to make sure you don't have a reaction to it.

u/FredWampy · 6 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon
u/eff_you_fungus · 6 pointsr/NailFungus

My big toenail got totally ruined by fungus because I left it untreated for 2+ years. Tbh I didn't know what it was and thought it'd go away on its own. 

A year ago, during my trip to Bali, I was in the water so much that half of my toenail actually fell off! This is when I finally started doing research and treating it. I went through a 9 month phase where I slacked off because I was traveling a lot, which is why you see it get much worse. But about 3 months ago I decided I've had enough and took this to the next level. I've been extremely proactive in my routine and am finally seeing results!!! It's a lot of work but it's really encouraging to see improvements.

Here's how I'm doing it:

  • Keep it filed down using this electric nail drill (be really careful not to get carried away & use the slowest setting. stop if you feel ANY pain)
  • Keep it clean & trimmed I make sure the sides of my nail/cuticle are free of debri and keep my nails short using these tools
  • Make sure to disinfect all tools & surfaces using alcohol or hand sanitizer & soap
  • Brush your toe 2-3 times a day with a soft tip toothbrush and tea tree oil body wash (especially in morning and before going to bed)
  • Apply Tea tree oil & Coconut oil after brushing
    • Why: Several studies have shown that tea tree oil has antifungal properties. (source) Coconut oil also has antifungal properties and also smoothes out your skin & nail, which is key cuz tea tree oil makes it really dry and rough
    • How: You can do it by hand, but to make it easier I bought this mini refillable perfume spray bottle, filled it up with tea tree oil & coconut oil 50/50. So all I gotta do is spray it on my toe after I brush and dry
  • Apply Vicks vaporub I apply this along with the tea tree oil & coconut oil once a day or so
  • Apply Urea Cream at night in addition to the tea tree oil & coconut oil
    • Numerous studies have shown combination therapy of urea and an antifungal agent to be an effective treatment for onychomycosis. Urea functions to soften the nail plate, which can enhance the passage of antifungal medications to the underlying nail bed.
  • Footsoaks I've done footsoaks 2-3 times a week for 30 min each. Recently I've been combining 2 part warm water, 1 part vinegar (distilled white or ACV), and like 5 tbsp baking soda. Sometimes I only do baking soda. Sometimes I add a few drops of tea tree oil. Sometimes I soak just with bleach & water. But if you do the bleach & water, make sure you use regular bleach (not the splashless kind). Anyways as you can tell, I kinda mix it up when it comes to footsoaks
    • In the lab, plain old sodium bicarbonate limited growth of the most common types of fungi that cause skin and nail infections. (source)
    • Vinegar can protect against bacteria, fungi, and other harmful microbes, so putting it into a foot soak could have potential benefits for the feet. source
  • Antifungal foot powder I use this foot powder anytime I wear shoes to keep it as dry as possible
  • Try to stay bare feet as much as possible
  • Put toe in sunlight as much as you can fungus hates the sun
  • Clean socks I change into fresh clean socks constantly
  • Handwash & sanitize socks I handwash all of my socks by soaking them in this collapsible dish tub with super hot water, laundry detergent, and a few drops of dettol, which is this super concentrated antiseptic liquid that kills the fungus
  • Spray on sanitizer If I'm ever lazy, I carry this hand sanitizer spray to spray my toenail before going to bed. I also spray this in my shoes & flip flops at night. I also use this to spray down my nail filer, sink, hands, etc. to not spread fungus.
u/FavoriteActorDennehy · 6 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

Okay this is what cleared up my chest and back in two weeks.

2% Pyrithione Zinc (ZnP) Bar Soap

Alpha Skin Care Revitalizing Body Lotion with 12% Glycolic AHA

I'm also using two other products to lighten the leftover marks (Alpha Hydrox
Spot Light Targeted Skin Lightener & InstaNatural Niacinamide 5% Face Serum) but haven't seen much improvement in that regard.

u/lilyofyosemite · 5 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

My favorite thing for nasty cracked feet (discovered when I spent a month climbing in the desert) is this climbing balm. I usually put it on before bed and then wear thin socks to bed.

My mom swears by using a pumice stone to remove extra callus and then using lanolin oil (same idea, apply before bed and wear socks overnight). That works super well for me too.

u/PrincipalOak · 5 pointsr/ZeroWaste

A common active ingredient in Head and Shoulders shampoos is pyrithione zinc. If that helped you before it might work in a bar as well. I’m not sure if you use amazon or want to order one but this is one used to treat dandruff. You may have luck finding the vanicream z bar in drugstores near you.

u/TwoChe · 5 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

Stridex is easiest, but cheap is salicylic acid soap. I get a blue bar from walmart for like 2 bucks and it lasts a month or so if I only use it on my face (I also hit my chest, armpits [really good to reduce BO and crusty pits] and my upper shoulders/back). I am an oily dude btw, probably obvious though, so your mileage may vary but it is awesome stuff.

E: So walmart also sells a cheap sulfur soap that I use, but here is something on amazon with both in one bar-- https://www.amazon.com/SAL3-Salicylic-Acid-Sulfur-Soap/dp/B00685KUGA/ref=pd_sim_194_2?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B00685KUGA&pd_rd_r=31e721fe-bae8-11e8-8a49-4dd240b1bebd&pd_rd_w=v7IZA&pd_rd_wg=sdjwg&pf_rd_i=desktop-dp-sims&pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_p=18bb0b78-4200-49b9-ac91-f141d61a1780&pf_rd_r=EFX5XHZ6QKXBBCVGV4WZ&pf_rd_s=desktop-dp-sims&pf_rd_t=40701&psc=1&refRID=EFX5XHZ6QKXBBCVGV4WZ

My understanding is that SA is essentially aspirin, so I dont really splurge for the expensive on that because I imagine it is wasteful (same for sulfur too). In my local walmart the soap with spanish language on the front is usually about 1/3 the price of the english label on the next aisle

u/kandiemandie · 5 pointsr/popping

this is the one I buy specifically. It comes in a little twist-cap plastic jar so your bathroom doesn't smell like sulfur and it preserves the soap so it doesn't melt away when it gets wet.

The smell is not THAT strong but you will still smell it faintly. You do get used to it very quickly.

I wash with plain soap first and exfoliate well then I wash with the sulfur soap letting it stay on my skin for a minute or two instead of washing it off right away. It treats my body acne and eczema very well

u/SkyWarrior21 · 5 pointsr/wicked_edge

If you want something that is just good enough to get the job done and don't care for scent, go for a shave stick or cream in a tube such as La Toja, Arko, Derby, Wilkinson Sword, Speick, Palmolive etc.

But honestly, your best bet would be Pre de Provence. It's very cheap and because it's a quadruple-milled soap, it will last many years plus the quality and scent of it is amazing.

u/Gandalf-the-Bae · 4 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

​I have combination skin that alternates between being too oily and too dry. I have LOTS of large pores and sebaceous filaments around my nose and chin, and they never seem to go away, even with occasional blackhead strips or weekly exfoliation. I sometimes get acne in these spots as well as my forehead--occasionally small bumps, but usually cystic acne. I recently switched from the birth control pill (combination pill) to an IUD, so I've noticed an increase of acne on my face and body (where I've never really gotten acne before, even before I went on the pill).

I've also always had issues with redness and unevenness, especially around my cheeks and nose. It flares up when I'm stressed or when I eat gluten (celiac disease), and it seems really similar to my mother's rosacea. My skin is very sensitive as well, and harsh products irritate my skin and make it inflamed, red, and itchy.

​

Here's my current routine:

MORNING (shower)

Shea Moisture African Black Soap bar

SheaMoisture African Black Soap Body Wash (body)

Shea Moisture African Black Soap Problem Skin Toner OR 100% witch hazel (alcohol free)

Aveeno Ultra-Calming Daily Moisturizer For Sensitive Skin With Broad Spectrum Spf 15

NIGHT

Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water, For All Skin Types

Shea Moisture African Black Soap bar

Shea Moisture African Black Soap Problem Skin Toner

LadyKin Affinitic Snail Cream

Skyn Iceland Pure Cloud Cream OR Shea Moisture Peace Rose Oil Complex Sensitive Skin Moisturizer 

​

When I get cystic acne, I usually use either diluted tea tree oil or a tiny bit of benzoyl peroxide directly on the bumps. The latter tends to irritate my skin very badly.

​

Regarding facial cleansers, I sometimes alternate between the following as well: 

Skyn Iceland Glacial Face Wash

BRTC Jasmine Waterfall Foaming Cleanser 

​

And I wear mud/charcoal masks or sheet masks about once a week or so. Would anybody be able to provide guidance? I guess my primary concern is the redness, which is usually pretty noticeable. The other issues (acne and large pores) don't look as bad in person. Does anyone have any product/routine suggestions?

u/peaceandpinecones · 4 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

Product name: Sal3 bar soap

Product type: cleanser

Price (range): 5.99 for a bar on amazon - https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00685KUGA/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_Bnz6BbEMYC785

Country of purchase: USA

Skin info: Type II, acne prone, rosacea, sensitive (and irritated from tretinoin)

Ingredient list: Active ingredients: 3% salicylic acid, 10% sulfur. Inactive ingredients: saponified palm and palm kernal oils, glycerin, lanolin, cocamide DEA, ethanol, titanium dioxide.

Special info: high pH of close to 9 I believe, and it has an earthy dirt like smell

Experience & opinion: honestly this saved my skin. I went from irritated and red with cc’s all over to semi clear. It’s strong and the pH isn’t ideal but it helps with redness and irritation so much! I was told to use it by my derm to help with the irritation from the tret and to work on the rosacea. I use it once a day and rub it in for about 90 seconds as per her instructions.

I used to scratch so much my scalp would bleed and my hair would start falling out but I changed my diet ( too much sugar, dairy, & wheat would trigger it badly) and started using zinc soap to wash my hair.

u/airbornesimian · 4 pointsr/Wetshaving

Not sure what your budget is, but here are a few soap of the lower-cost, Amazon available soaps that I would recommend.

Pré de Provence


Pré de Provence is an excellent triple- or by some accounts quad-milled soap French soap, and strikes one of the best cost/performance/longevity ratios I've ever seen on a soap. It creates an excellent, slick, protective lather and provides an awesome post-shave feel even after you rinse it off. It comes in two scents:

Pré de Provence is a light, herbal scent that seems to have a strong sage note in it. I haven't used it, but I have used its brother. $11.99USD for 150g on Amazon.

Pré de Provence No. 63 is a warm, spicy cologne sort of scent that has notes of pepper, cedarwood, leather and tobacco leaves among others. $14.04USD for 150g on Amazon.

Cella Crema da Barba


Cella is a soft Italian soap that has a mild scent of cherry and almond. I don't know if it would be considered "manly," but this stuff has been around for nearly 120 years, and men have been shaving with it for all that time, so it has to be doing something right. It's also a great performer with good post-shave feel. $12.00 for 150g on Amazon.

La Toja


La Toja is a Spanish soap in stick form, containing mineral salts. Its scent reminds me a bit of briny sea air and talcum powder. La Toja's claim is that the addition of the mineral salts helps as a skin conditioner. $6.00USD for 50g on Amazon.


Speick


Speick is a German soap whose scent comes from the speick plant and lavender essential oil. It's one of my favorite soaps of all time in terms of both performance and scent. $8.08USD on Amazon.

Chiseled Face Groomatorium


Chiseled Face is one of our US artisans, and his products are among the best performing that I've ever used. He has a handful of different scents that you may find interesting, but my favorite of them is Ghost Town Barber.

Chiseled Face Ghost Town Barber has notes of bergamot, basil leaf, white patchouli, oakmoss, texas cedar, leather, smoke, and gunpowder (I copy/pasted that from his description). $14.99USD for 113g on Amazon.

 

These are all US links, so I hope they work for you. I'm sorry to say that I can't help with the dry skin thing; my skin is fairly oily and not overly sensitive.

u/iamsms · 4 pointsr/wicked_edge

Razor: Edwin Jagger DE89

Brush: Fendrihan Synthetic

Shaving Cream: Speick (currently overpriced)

Or if you want to go for a Shaving Soap:

Shaving Soap: PdP 63

or

B&M Latha Oceana

AfterShave: Nivea Sensitive Cooling (or get one from local drugstore, walmart etc (non cooling version))

Blades: Get this from tryablade.com

But if I were you:

I would get: the DE89 razor from Amazon, a 22mm synthetic brush from Maggard Razors, B&M Seville Shave soap/Speick Shave Cream from Maggard Razors, Blade Sampler from tryablade, and nivea aftershave balm sensitive from Local stores

u/secret-coconut · 4 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

Did you introduce all of those products into your routine slowly, one at a time? I may have missed it in your OP, but what would you consider your skin type to be? Dry, combo, dehydrated, normal, oily, etc.?

It is possible that you are using too many products and exfoliating too frequently, which damages your moisture barrier and can result in an increase in CCs/pimples. I would try cutting back to just cleansing and moisturizing for a few weeks, and really pay attention to how your skin feels after you cleanse.

I have very sensitive skin and even using Neutrogena Ultra Gentle Daily Cleanser or CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser made my skin dry and flaky after use. I have ditched cleanser (for the most part) in favor of washing with water and then using a micellar water to clean my skin. If I do use cleanser, I use Noble Formula 2% Pyrithione Zinc with Argan Oil on days that I don't use my curology prescription, as recommended by my curology provider.

If it is available to you (i.e. you're in the US), curology is a great resource that is worth looking into.

ETA - there is a one month free trial of curology available, if you just google that you should get the code for it

u/ValiumKnight · 4 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

I did a trial of curology and the recommendation for chest/back acne were the following:


Vanicream Z-Bar (Pyrithione Zinc 2%) Medicated Cleansing Bar (https://www.psico.com/product/vanicream-zinc-bar/)


Noble Formula 2% Pyrithione Zinc Bar Soap (http://amzn.com/B00G7TUDA0 or https://amzn.com/B01E6DZXVC)

Both of which are zinc and for the body, and quite affordable!

u/NotoriousBootyPirate · 3 pointsr/cagonewild

Thats the Irishman in you. My buddy's dad has red, brown, black, and grey and it looks fucking awesome but he always shaves it no matter how cool i tell him it looks.

I use a few things. If i'm feeling fancy i wax the stache up into curls but washing stache wax off your fingers takes forever. I wash it with this which i highly recommend, use beard conditioner, and when im out the shower i use just straight jojoba oil. Sometimes a balm, but i get the vibe that 99% of beard care products are waaaaay overpriced. Like i'd pay 2x as much for 1/2 as much oil just cause it has fragrance added to the jojoba oil. I've tried taking collagen too but i always get acne when i stop taking it.

Everytime i use a boars hair brush i feel like it rips too much out but i literally get dreads it i dont. Mine is very wirey. Looks better when the hairs kinda dried out and i dont oil it but i do anyway. I think you should man try this i'll buy it for you if you're tight on cash. They sell vitamin E oil at the dollar tree and thats good to lather on like 30 minutes before a shower (not after cause it smells weird) as a treatment.

I got sick which put me in terrible condition and it ended up affecting my ability to complete my skincare routine every night and has made my eye area and nose super chapped, so i've been using petroleum jelly to moisturise those areas... really sucks when i've been working hard to be consistent with my routine and then BAM sick me just wants to give everything up and let a bad breakout happen

rave
The Paula's Choice Super Light Wrinkle Defense SPF 30 is AMAZING, I can't get over how cosmetically elegant it is, it is pretty much everything I want out of a sunblock. It is completely zinc oxide based with at least SPF 30 and it doesn't pill at all on my skin and dries to a matte finish and manages to keep me significantly less oily throughout the day. It's tinted and I am pretty sure the tint is too dark for me and I'd actually prefer a whitecast versus a tinted cast, but I don't mind because it isn't noticeable at all and makes this product usable by a wide range of skintones.

I use the Sal3 sulfur/salicylic acid soap also from Braunfels, and I find is rinses away pretty much odorless too. The maker claims it's because of its "colloidal" formulation: https://www.amazon.com/SAL3-Salicylic-Acid-Sulfur-Soap/dp/B00685KUGA/ref=sr_1_3?m=AA82KDCI0X2JF&marketplaceID=ATVPDKIKX0DER&qid=1565155864&s=merchant-items&sr=1-3

It can be very drying though, be sure to have a good moisturizer and maybe use every other day.

This is the bar soap I'm working through. Sal3

I hate bar soap, so hopefully I can find a liquid version. This stuff smells, so I usually follow up with regular body wash so I don't smell like an active volcano.

u/fawkes-trot · 3 pointsr/muacjdiscussion

SAL3 Soap: A bar soap with 10% sulfur and 3% salicylic acid. Omg, the improvement I've seen within 2 weeks of this stuff is insane. Sulfur is anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory; salicylic acid is a chemical exfoliant. This stuff is destroying my chestne and backne, without destroying my skin or taking 3000 years to work!

I would suggest not using it too often at first -- like Stridex or other salicylic acid products, it can dry your skin out if you suddenly start using it 3x a day. Start with once a day or once every other day.

I know I am a little late, but I created a Reddit account JUST to post this in hopes that it helps someone.

I was diagnosed with PD a while back and tried SO many things (zero therapy, Eucrisa, coconut oil, sulfate wash, vanicream cleanser, etc.)

My "miracle" has been Pyrithione Zinc (ZnP) Bar Soap. I use an incredibly affordable version from Amazon (https://www.amazon.com/DermaHarmony-Pyrithione-Zinc-ZnP-Soap/dp/B00MWB0ZGE/ref=cm_cr_arp_d_product_top?ie=UTF8&th=1) and my face has almost completely cleared in (3) days.

My routine, morning and night (on the PD area only) is to lather the zinc bar soap up, wash and rinse well, lightly pat dry, follow up with a small amount of metronidazole cream (rubbed in well), wait for it to absorb completely, apply YORO Organic Manuka Honey cream, and done.

This combination has been an absolute live saver for me. No more bumps, dryness, redness.. nothing!

I am so happpppyyy!

I hope this helps someone!

u/DemNeurons · 3 pointsr/AskDocs

Hmm I think there could be a few more useful details here to help. I've been on the hunt for good briefs and undershirts for a long time. I've finally settled on Uniqlo's airism garments. They make shirts and boxer briefs (what I use) They're synthetic, but they make them in tight knit and mesh, and boy are they breathable. I'd have to disagree with those saying stay away from synthetic - if done right, they can be amazing. I used to use cotton, and found they'd be damp by the end of the day or gross. This rarely happens to me anymore with these.

Couple things to keep in mind - be true to your weight and size. Boxer briefs, and pants for that matter, can make things worse if they're too small or tight fitting. Better pants can also help - you're looking for breathability. Lulu lemon makes a men's dress pant that a ^(rich)friend of mine swears by. I'm not saying go spend $100+ on pants, but I'm sure other non-branded versions similar to these exist at a fraction the cost.

Lastly, as others have said, hygeine is very important. Be sure to use body wash, and make sure everything is dry before putting clothes on. I've heard using Tea-tree oil as a body wash for stuff like this, though I have not found research on the efficacy of this claim.

Best of luck!

I had no idea body wash might be a part of it. I currently use this fragrance-free body wash/ with a sponge loofa everyday, but I honestly can't tell if my hands are getting any softer.

Like /u/Falling_Glass I usually just use Gold Bond Body Powder, but there are some other options depending on what exactly you are looking for. Bodyglide comes in a stick like deodorant, and it seems to have good reviews. Elitefts just started selling Dr. Greenfield's Chafe Shield, but I don't know much about it. Anti Monkey Butt Powder is another product I have heard about people using. There is also a Chafing Relief Powder Gel that works well, but is pretty expensive (and is marketed to women if that is an issue). Maybe one of these will fit what you are looking for.

u/Mindflux · 2 pointsr/AskReddit

This (Gold Bond) medicated powder applied to your nether regions (for men) after a shower feels amazing. It keeps your twig and berries dry all day long and if you should have an encounter with a woman your bits don't smell like a cesspool.

It takes a couple days to get used to the tingling (which only lasts a couple seconds).. but feels amazing. AMAZING.

P.S Don't get the green bottle, it's got more menthol in it which leads to more tingling.. but in a painful sort of way. (IMHO!)

You're welcome! I struggled with the problem for such a long time that I studied it and tried almost everything! Just spreading the word.

u/kawausokoi · 2 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

Your sweat has antimicrobial properties to it. The main one is the gene Dermcidin which encodes an antimicrobial peptide that is excreted in human sweat.

It may be your hot showers and over-cleansing that are doing it. Try bringing the temperature down as far as you can stand it. I know how great a hot shower feels after a workout, but my skin just goes all to hell if I indulge myself. Does your gym have a hot tub? Heat does help with muscle recovery and I've found that sitting in the hot tub (as long as it is 101-105 F, any hotter is straight up awful) for 10 minutes gets me the relaxing heat I want from a hot shower but keeps my face out of danger. This may not work for you if your back has a tendency to breakout badly.

If you're going to hot tub often, I recommend a more gentle body wash like Eucerin's Skin Calming Body Wash and a light moisturizer like Hada Labo.

Since it sounds like you've been drying your skin out with all the washing and heat, I highly recommend using the Hada Labo linked above and/or their lighter lotion that's really more like a toner. This one is ultra light and watery. I use it like a toner before the milky Hada Labo.

I also remove my sunscreen and whatever buildup may have occurred during the day with micellar water before working out.

u/106 · 2 pointsr/malefashionadvice

I have some mild to moderate eczema. I use Eucerin Skin Calming Dry Skin Body Wash

I use a mild, fragrance and dye free soap only on the more... apocrine areas—then I use the body wash everywhere else. I try to keep the water on the cooler side and finish with a lotion or body oil afterward.

Regarding shampoo... I don't have any specific recommendations other than try shampooing less often (around once a week) and just rinse the rest of the time.

u/Gaywallet · 2 pointsr/Fitness

The balm works miracles. You'll see this one around a lot, and most people prefer it, but any balm like this will work well.

Lotion just doesn't help heal and does nothing for blisters. Your hands might be dry, but the underlying issue I think is the heavy weight and friction. You might want to work on your technique and grip strength as well - you really should be gripping as hard as possible to prevent any slippage.

u/Domje · 2 pointsr/climbharder

I'd 100% recommend Climb ON! I started using it on my hands right after climbing and I also put it on before bed. I've noticed an improvement on how much my skin can take and how quickly it heals. I use a sandpaper stick thing then apply climb on.

u/t0asti · 2 pointsr/climbing

Are you climbing regularly? i.e. not missing weeks? Usually if you climb only once or twice a week the skin should have plenty of time to recover. Maybe it needs to get used to it first (i.e. your skin has to learn how to recover more quickly).

Anywho, you can use salves/skin care products like Climb On, jtree salve, or my personal favorite: tip juice. They are all moisturizer with a wax or resin that stimulates your skin to build more callous. If you do want to use it dont over do it. I usually only apply it when climbing outdoors for multiple days or I had a day at the gym that was especially rough on my skin. If I were you I'd use it for 2 weeks and see if it makes any difference at all, if yes then use it for maybe another 2 weeks and then stop and see if your skin learned how to recover quickly. Only use it the same day after climbing and always make sure to wash your hands. Any chalk left on them makes your skin dry and slows recovery.

Note that you shouldnt overdo it because thick and hard callous is counter productive since it's prone to tearing and splitting and can also hurt when you get in an awkward position.

As for the one I use, you can find it on Amazon if you search "Olive Oil Nablus Soap." Has blue Arabic writing and a red camel logo. One bar usually lasts me a month. Also, here's a video from 2014 documenting their process from start to finish. I believe the AP Archive has a similar but older video of the same sort of thing. Though I'm not sure if it's the same family business as previous video.

Either way it's a great way to support business in the West Bank for a great product. This kind of olive oil soap is commonly made and used all over the Mediterranean from France to Syria and has basically been made the same way for 500 years. It's as simple as soap gets and is often used for lots of different purposes. Body, dishes, clothes, etc...

I have fairly sensitive skin and wear sports bras a lot for work, where sweating often leaves me breaking out along the band.

I shampoo my hair, put conditioner in it, and put my hair up. While the conditioner is sitting, I wash all of my body except my back. I rinse my hair again and put it up once more. Then I use a back brush and some magical acne soap to clean my back. This helps a lot.

I'm super acne prone though, so I also regularly disinfect my sheets and sports bras with this stuff. Maybe give it a shot if washing your back last doesn't help?

u/bridget992 · 2 pointsr/AsianBeauty

I live in Florida with oily, acne-prone skin. I use mostly AB, but there are some western products that I haven't been able to find better replacements for. Here's my oil-conscious morning routine:

  • Cleanse with sulfur soap. I'm currently testing this out on my acne and recently switched from Cosrx's Low PH Good Morning Gel Cleanser.

  • Tone with Cosrx Natural Bha Skin Returning A-sol.

  • Reduce excess sebum with Cosrx Bha Blackhead Power Liquid 2-3 times per week. I find that this helps keep my pores clean and reduces oil production.

  • (After waiting 20 minutes) Protect with Biore UV Aqua Rich sunscreen.

  • Moisturize and prime with Nivea Men Sensitive Skin After Shave Balm, which is seriously the best makeup primer I have ever used. Possibly also the cheapest. Feels like nothing on my face, yet allows makeup to stay on all day. Definitely one of my HGs.

  • Color correct with Missha Magic Cushion. It's lightweight, provides good coverage, stays on and doesn't get cakey.

  • And, if I know that I'm going to be outside or busy all day, I'll spray on Skindinavia's Makeup Finishing Spray, which works better than powder and doesn't dry out my skin.

Tenia Versicolor. My bf and I had it as well. It's very common, almost symptomless skin disease. It's simply an imbalance of yeast on your skin and it is not contagious. I had it all over my back and some spots on my chest. It frightened me but it's nothing to be worried about.

We have had luck with selsun blue. Put it on full strength (use a tiny bit of water to lather if you need to) and leave it for 30 min to an hour - go shirtless in the sun with it on your skin for bonus effectiveness. If you don't live with someone who can get it onto your back for you, invest in a bath brush! Also using exfoliating gloves to rub the soap in seems to help, it also feels really good. We have also been using bars of zinc soap which has seemed to help clear it up and keep breakouts away. From what I've read, flare ups may happen from time to time. I now wash with the zinc soap every day which seems to keep the condition at bay.

Some doctors will prescribe an anti fungal but tbh I don't think those will be super effective as I have taken those for unrelated infections and though I'm not a doctor I think the yeast can develop a resistance quickly. Plus these medications have other side effects. My completely unprofessional opinion is to try a medication as a last resort.


Good luck and I hope you are able to get rid of it quickly!

I think you have possibly identified the culprit! There's definitely a chance your dandruff is yeast-related - one of the two species focused on in the linked article is the one that is known to create dandruff issues for people.(.pdf download).

Try zinc It's the active ingredient in Head & Shoulders shampoo, but in bar form. I have found that it's far more versatile than rubbing shampoo all over your bod and there aren't any fragrances that may exacerbate eczema'd skin and it's very easy to lather and use on scalp. (You can also find it in trial/travel sized if you just want to test.)

I would expect almost immediate results if the two of you are amenable to using the zinc both before and after being together. Good luck!

My body acne was caused by my fabric softener and lotion that my skin did not like. So make sure to check those as possible culprits.

I use the murad vitamin C toner in the morning and then The ordinary's Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% at night. Vitamin C and Zinc will help with color correction but should be used opposite routines as they affect each ohter.

​

I too suffer from bad scarring. Most of the items i used were recommended by my curology dermatologist that you can speak with. Ive noticed that my skin is more even and brighter. When i do get a pimple, the scar fades much faster. This is my routine (i am 23/f with oily skin)

Morning:

Noble Formula 2% Pyrithione Zinc (ZnP) Argan Oil Bar Soap, 3.25 oz

MURADEssential-C Toner

EltaMD AM Therapy Facial Moisturizer, 1.7 oz

Evening:

This is what i use to keep me cool, dry and comfortable. Gold Bond triple action medicated body powder

Warning.. use it in moderation at first until you know what to expect as the menthol cooling effect can be uncomfortable if you put too much on your dangly bits. And i wouldn't recommend getting the extra strength bottle for the same reason.

I've also heard of some people using a makeup brush to powder their privates.

u/milky_donut · 1 pointr/femalefashionadvice

Like what others said: aloe vera gel. Also, cold compresses or occasionally rinsing in cool/cold water helps with relief. Try not to wear tight clothing around the areas but if you do, make sure the fabric is breathable and light. Another tip is to use body powder, such as Gold Bond Medicated or baby powder.

i HIGHLY recommend beard oils and pine tar soap, as it keeps things shiny and conditioned well. It can be touchy finding the right oils, as most have a fragrance. Honest Amish kinda smells like Jagermeister, and it's pretty strong, but I'd recommend Grave before shave oils and Grandpa's Pinetar soap

u/IzzyInterrobang · 1 pointr/SkincareAddiction

My SO has been washing his face with pine tar soap for three weeks now and hasn't had that stuff in the corner of his nose or any acne since (his was mild to bedin with but around his nose was bad). It dries my face out so you might want to double up on moisturizer though. They have some at gnc called Grandpa's pine tar soap. It smells like a camp fire too. The reviews on amazon are funny

u/The_numbskull · 1 pointr/beards

No, obviously.

But pretending they are only selling this to their own community

Your claim that they do not market this as "handmade artisanal" is false, as is your claim that it is only being made for the community.

They may have been doing that in 1923, but this is not 1923.

Pretty sure the folks over in Palestine aren't paying $15 a bar either.

u/TheEmeraldMoose · 1 pointr/interestingasfuck

Probably not, the amazon page claims it to have "almost no scent".

u/AsherGray · 1 pointr/SkincareAddiction

I recommend giving African black soap a whirl. It's pretty cheap (about $4 from Target) and has been working on my skin. My acne usually triggers with stress, so trying to combat it can be difficult. I have been loving this soap so far and so have others.

u/margheritapizzasonly · 1 pointr/SkincareAddiction

Whiteheads happen when there is dirt that is clogging the pore, so I think that it might be able to be resolved by:

  1. Using a different soap. Bar soap can be very drying sometimes and your skin might be sensitive to the fragrance. If you like bar soap, try using African Black Soap which is good for clearing acne:
    https://www.amazon.com/Shea-Moisture-African-Black-Butter/dp/B005C2N8IC

    Or this body wash that has AHA, which is an exfoliant and is geared towards body acne:
    https://www.amazon.com/Mario-Badescu-Botanical-Body-Soap/dp/B002CBZB5E

  2. Although I know you said you want to shower every other day, you could always test out showering every day and see if that alone makes a difference. Sometimes fixing the problem has to do with other factors like are you taking a shower right after you work out so sweat doesn’t clog your pores, or even how often you change your bed sheets.

    It might also help to shower in warm water to open your pores and then before you get out, turn the water temperature to cold so it closes your pores. This could potentially fix the dry skin problem if you usually shower in hot water, which is drying.

    Added: Also make sure you’re washing all the soap off your back. If you think you’ve rinsed it all off, rinse again. Sometimes it’s just that there’s soap residue left (which also happens with a lot of bar soaps).
u/iBeenie · 1 pointr/Dreadlocks

You don't need a special "dreadlock" shampoo. I've never bought a single dreadlock-oriented product and I just hit the two year mark a month ago.

Look for "residue-free" shampoos. I mostly use Dr. Bronner's (I dilute 2-4 drops in a water bottle before I apply it). Neutrogena makes a residue-free shampoo, but it smells like Egyptian perfume so it's not everyone's cup of tea.

I also really like african black soap but it isn't technically residue free. It makes my hair feel amazing though so I use it every week or two. It also comes in a bar form like Dr. Bronners but I feel like the bars are difficult to manage how much soap you're using and I will always end up using way more than I need to.

I also did the twist and rip method and my locs are now a few inches past my shoulders. I wash with shampoo every other wash. The washes in between I use just straight water to scrub my scalp and rinse my dreads really well. I try to be very cautious of what I put in my locs and I pay most attention to rinsing well and drying completely.

Ninja edit: Forgot to add, I have been using argan oil to help hydrate my hair after washes. I usually spray some in while I'm drying my hair. There are a few different brands and mixes you can get, but this is the one I have been using. I looked for the one that didn't mention anything about detangling when I bought it (some of the others mentioned they help detangle, so I just avoided those but I'm not really sure how good/bad they are for dreads).

u/scavengerdanger · 1 pointr/SkincareAddiction

Hi all, newbie here, so please let me know if this is not the place for this question.

I believe I have sensitive skin. I used to get large pimples around my eyebrows, and on my cheeks and chin. My skin got dramatically better one day after I used Shea Moisture's Eczema/Psoiriasis soap at a friend's place, and I've been using either that or the troubled skin variant and have seen good results.

If I change my soap for even a day, my skin breaks out all over. Most recently this happened when I used my partner's soap.

I use the Shea Moisture Problem Skin moisturizer, which is great. I tried to switch to Aveeno at one point, and my skin turned red and rashy.

I use lipstick/highlighters as makeup, but almost never use concealer/foundation. Sometimes I'll put 100% tea tree oil directly on my skin, albeit in small quantities, and this dries out any small bumps on my skin.

What I'm looking for is for someone to "diagnose" my skin, and suggest any products that might work better than what I currently use, if possible. Please let me know if there's any more information I should provide, and thank you in advance for your advice!

u/kellybuMUA · 1 pointr/MakeupAddiction

I used to use only the BB solid cleanser that came with the blender, but that got expensive real quick. I follow Stephanie Nicole's channel and loved her luxury brush cleansing tutorial. She recommended a brick of African soap infused with shea butter. I tried it on my blender out of curiosity and it worked incredibly well, with identical results as the solid cleanser! The difference is that for about $8 you'll get easily 6x the product. The brick is huge and will last for a long time.

Yeah it's 13 bucks a bar, but it lasts a long time and it has been miraculous for minor psoriasis and skin irritations for me. It also cleared up my face acne in 2 days and has kept it clear long term.

If your skin hasn't responded to antibiotics, it's possible you're dealing with Malassezia Folliculitis (fungal "acne"). This guide https://simpleskincarescience.com/pityrosporum-folliculitis-treatment-malassezia-cure/ helped me clear my skin in about two months after spending five years dealing with pimples that wouldn't respond to typical acne treatments.

Of course, YMMV, but my current routine is nothing in the AM, PM shower using Head and Shoulders on hair/body (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01MXLFQGB/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1), Pantene on hair (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01MTNOJ2Z/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1), and sulfur soap on my face (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00CST4AS4/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1). Right after shower, I slap on some aloe vera gel (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00IRAFRQW/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1) followed by MSM gel (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000O379PC/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o09_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1) and then Cerave Baby Cream (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00WH31P7A/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&th=1). Twice a week I put Nizoral (https://www.amazon.com/Nizoral-Anti-Dandruff-Shampoo-Ketoconazole-Dandruff/dp/B00AINMFAC/ref=sr_1_3?keywords=nizoral&qid=1566134798&s=gateway&sr=8-3) on my face and let it sit for 3-5 minutes and then wash it off. I've run this full routine by a licensed dermatologist who told me the sulfur and Nizoral would do the heavy lifting to keep the Malassezia at bay, and as far as I can tell those two items are the keystones of this routine. Everything else I use because the sulfur and Nizoral can be very drying. All of those products I pulled from that skincare blog, so I would read through it and see if the skin condition addressed there matches what you're experiencing.

Good luck. This is the routine that made my skin do a complete 180 in February after I saw no improvement from derm prescribed antibiotics and benzoyl peroxide.

Ideally you would want one of the maximum strength varieties, but any variety will work. Really lather it up on a loofa and scrub hard all over your body.

u/bbv980 · 1 pointr/sex

Wash your man parts with soap and rinse off with water thouroughly. Soap residue encourages bacterial growth which causes bad odor. Dry the entire groin area completely with clean towel before dressing up as even a tiny bit of moisture can be a haven for odor-causing microbes. Some ToppCock on your genital area can help get rid of stink-causing bacteria and fungi.

u/cuishy999 · 1 pointr/sex

The itch may only be psychological since you said you enjoy scratching. If not, some ToppCock men's hygiene gel might help. It has aloe vera and tea tree oil that soothe itches and rashes. Also trim your finger nails and keep them as short as you can.

They make antifungal/bacterial body wash that you could give a try. The one I use is Purely Norwest Anti-Fungal Foot & Body Wash. It uses tea tree oil, so it still smells nice and won't burn you. I use it on my feet, arms pits and groin. I recommend also using something atleast slightly exfoliating to scrub your armpits with while using whichever soap you choose.

If you feel like you have issues with very sweaty armpits, you can also try dedicated antiperspirants, which actually work to prevent your sweat glands from, well, sweating. (Just be sure to monitor your use so not to over dry out your skin).

u/janabarrett · 1 pointr/eczema

I'm experiencing the same thing. I've had the worst eczema flare-up of my life for the past 3 months with huge, weeping lesions on my legs. Logic (and every dermatologist) says keep moisturizing, but I wasn't seeing any progress. I actually began noticing the weeping worsened after showering and applying lotion (Eucerin and Aveeno, for the most part).

My acupuncturist finally suggested I take a break from the brand name body washes and lotions. After 2 days of just rinsing with water in the shower and putting nothing on my skin, my patches stopped weeping and the itching began subsiding. Within 3 days, my skin started showing real signs of healing. (I'm now using a natural tea tree cleanser and applying sunflower oil after showers. This combo doesn't irritate my skin at all. Highly recommend!)

It's unnerving to think these products have been making our skin worse, but what a relief to actually see results.

u/dwispa · 1 pointr/medical

Just logged back in. Yeah, I'd say 95% of the itch is gone now. I bought funga soap as /u/666isbad suggested and it worked within 1-2 weeks. I should note that I used this in conjunction with the ointment that my Dermotaloist gave so it's hard to say how much benefit the soap had by itself. But I don't care as long as it's gone.

Here's the soap I bought; https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00HNWNXAW/

u/LNG · 1 pointr/SkincareAddiction

Sorry in advance for the length of my comment but speaking from personal experience, your acne could be caused by fungus/yeast, not bacteria. It's called Malassezia Yeast and we all have it on our skin, but it can cause issues when it becomes overgrown. This overgrowth is called Pityrosporum folliculitis and looks almost identical to other forms of acne.

Other evidence that points towards fungus is the fact that you're breaking out on other parts of your body. The fungus spreads easily, especially if you give it a nice environment to thrive, like sweaty workouts!

I had perfect skin until I was about 22, and suddenly developed acne on my face, chest, and back. It was so bizarre and none of the traditional acne treatments were helping because, as I later figured out, most products are geared towards bacterial breakouts, including benzoyl peroxide. In fact, overuse of these products can cause fungus/yeast to take over the balance and cause all sorts of issues!

So, after months of research I came to the conclusion that I did indeed have fungal acne, so I started a routine to combat it. I was desperate at first, so I bought an anti-dandruff shampoo (because dandruff is commonly caused by fungus). [This one is great because its SLS free!]
(https://www.amazon.com/Regenepure-Shampoo-Treatment-Supports-Growth/dp/B0032FSDOA/ref=sr_1_1_a_it?ie=UTF8&qid=1485317432&sr=8-1&keywords=dr.+regenepure) In the shower, I slathered it all all over my face and body, let it sit for 5 minutes, then rinsed it off. All of the breakouts started disappearing overnight, literally.

I felt strange using shampoo on my face so I decided to do more research and discovered that zinc is an amazing natural antifungal. So, I purchased this bar of soap, which contains 2% Pyrithione Zinc (an antimicrobial) and it was also very effective. I only use that about every three days now, and only on my body, because I have super sensitive skin and it is too drying for my face.

For my face, I now use Curology because they offer Zinc Pyrithione as an ingredient! My current formulation is .25% Zinc Pyrithione, 1% Clindamycin, and 4% Niacinamide and it is AMAZING. I'm now free of any and all breakouts.

I also use this mineral sunscreen because it uses zinc oxide - another form of zinc that is an antifungal!

For me, I have to maintain a routine or else the overgrowth returns, so I also take zinc picolinate supplements.
So, yeah, I hope this helps give some insight on your skincare journey!!

*EDIT!

I also want to point out the necessity of being super gentle on your skin, in general. I always think "kill it with kindness" when it comes to skin issues. You definitely don't want to make things worse by over-exfoliating (chemical and physical), using harsh cleansers that strip your natural oils, and above all you must keep your moisture barrier in tip top shape because it will protect you from excess fungus and bacteria!

I decided to give you my whole routine as an example, so here it is! I focus on moisture.

I thought originally it was seborrheic dermatitis. I went to a dermatologist and was prescribed keto cream. I continued to use this for about 7 months with little positive response.

It actually seemed to spread to my chin or it's coincidental. It's driving me crazy :(

About three months ago I went to a new derm and was prescribed elidel cream.

I have used it every day for the last few months and it seemed better at first but now it's just flaking constantly.

How do I know what this is? Is it hormonal?

I'm trans and have recently changed hormones slightly but it wasn't around when the chin started.

I do shave every other day but as of this week I have put a pause on to see it helps relieve some of it.

I'm at a loss. I can't remove hair right now. Make up burns the effected skin but I do wear it occasionally if it's too troubling for me.

I don’t think this will necessarily cure it but I used this soap when I had a different skin condition (pityriasis rosea) and it provided a lot of relief and improvement for me. I read that you also have seborrheic dermatitis which is technically what it’s primarily used for but since it has both antifungal and antibacterial properties, it’s pretty multi-functional for different skin conditions!

Zinc bar soap cleared up mine a ton! I leave the lather on my skin for a few minutes while showering. Noble gets recommended a lot, now I don't trust that either:( I bought this brand because it was cheaper.

This is what I'm using my diet seems to trigger flare-ups but I have it somewhat controlled. I'd suggest seeing a doctor and requesting blood work, it could be an Immune system disorder. DO you drink alcohol you should probably stop. Wash all bedding and towels don't use that trimmer again until you disinfect it. Eat healthy get more sun exposure limit sugar intake.

For a good value, this is a pretty good deal. That 5.25oz puck of hard milled soap will last forever.

I get smelly junk, athletes foot, and acne under armpits and on shoulders. Is this product worth investing in, in order to cure my problems? Thinking of using it as my daily soap...

It definitely looks like tinea versicolor. This is how it looks on me.

I notice I get it in areas where I tend to sweat a little more than normal. Dermatologist recommended selsum blue shampoo, but I ended up looking on amazon and purchased this tea tee oil shampoo that’s really changed my life (if I’m persistent, it’ll disappear within 2 /3 weeks). That and a topical cream prescription “econazole nitrate, along with golden bond powder extra strength -medicated . A combination off these three help to relieve the itchiness and help get rid of them.

With the shampoo, I try to apply it on my dry skin at least five minutes before I get into the shower so I could just sit on my skin, then I use a body brush while showering to make sure I’m exfoliating and spreading it areas I can’t reach. Sometimes there’s a little burning sensation but it’s a minty sensation. If I have time before work, I apply the econazole and then I will stall until it dries and apply the golden bond powder over the areas affected. For me, it’s my neck, my shoulders, underboobs, the crook my elbows, my upper back , and my pubic area. Be forewarned that you will smell very minty for the rest of the day.

I don't really have a routine for body. I alternate between this and this for washing.

I'm a guy btw, so if you have any recommendations, the scent-free/more masculine scents are definitely more appreciated.

Thanks

get this, makes your taint tingle

u/giantbearshark · 1 pointr/SkincareAddiction

I hear you. I would add that chemical exfoliants used to freak mine out when it was really active. Now I can use an aha for the flaky stage, but not if I get to the raw scaly stage. When it isn't active, I find that a bha helps to keep my eyebrow area healthy and clear, but I don't know if that's an individual/purely anecdotal circumstance.

I mentioned sulfur above, but I actually think this pyrithione zinc soap was better. It was recommended to me by my curology dermatologist when I was doing that subscription.

u/UnicycleHooker · 1 pointr/SkincareAddiction

I've been on this prescription + doxycycline for about three weeks. Currently my routine is zinc soap and Hada Labo Hyaluronic Toner in the morning, and Cerave foaming cleanser, Hada Labo Hyaluronic Toner and my Curology prescription at night.

It's been too early for me to see a decrease in PIH/PIE, but it's definitely helped with inflammation and redness. I think I've seen a little purging on my forehead because I have more cc's than usual, but I'm not sure if that's purging or if it's from a switch in shampoo. I've been trying to be patient but it's hard, especially since I'm a chronic picker.

u/SpeechyKeen · 1 pointr/AsianBeauty

I use this soap like 2-3 times a week in place of my second cleanser. I like it!

Edit: I let it sit on my skin for about a minute before I rinse it.

u/pasizzle · 1 pointr/SkincareAddiction

I sent my derm on curology a photo really similar to this one and she suggested Noble Formula 2% Pyrithione Zinc Bar Soap

u/UsaraDark2014 · 1 pointr/SkincareAddiction

I've decided to get more serious in trying to combat by PIH and need some help in formulating a new skincare routine. I usually do my routine every 2 days after I shower and am treating PIH primarily on my chest, back and shoulders. Whatever I plan on using on my face I was also planning on using there too.

My main problem is trying to figure out when to apply a Brooklyn Botany Vitiman C Serum, TO Niacinamide, and Rosehip Oil. My theorized routine is as follows:

-----

CeraVe SA Body Wash

Eucerin In-Shower Body Lotion

Alpha Skin Care Body Lotion, 12% Glycolic AHA

To Ordinary Arbutin

CeraVa Moisturizing Cream (for face, back, shoulder and chest)

Some other generic lotion for everywhere else

Sunscreen

-----

Where should I fit the Serum, Niacinamide and Rosehip Oil, and why? I've been reading that the Serum could come after AHA, but it interferes with Niacinamide, which I have no idea where that would go and why it interferes. I also read that the Rosehip Oil can be mixed with my Moisturizing Cream; just add a few drops.

edit and addition - My current routine is a simple body wash, Alpha Skin Care AHA 10% and some Hydroquinone cream (both on face, shoulder, back and chest), Moisturize then Aloe Vera. My skin type is also pretty normal, it didn't break out or anything when I first ever introduced the AHA, and with age my skin has seemed to become stable; I don't break out very often anymore, just recovering.

u/Samimation · 1 pointr/SkincareAddiction

I live in the literal desert so for me its not a film its protecting me from insta-dry death :p If you are an oily type, and you said you wanted something for exfoliation? I just looked and CeraVe has this, chemical and everything:

https://www.amazon.com/CeraVe-Body-Rough-Bumpy-Ounce/dp/B077TWXCQV

Seems pretty neat, they have a moisturizer to match too.

u/lemonyemon · 1 pointr/SkincareAddiction

I don’t get cysts but I end up with some bacne if I’ve been working out or sweating a bunch. Since I started using this body wash regularly, I’ve been 98% clear. I’m thinking the salicylic acid should help exfoliate some of those red marks away but it may take some time.

u/sthutton · 1 pointr/FeminineNotFeminist

Oooooh! I have this amazing problem too! Isn't it the best? :)

The three (four?) things I've found that helped me the most (and trust me I've tried SO MANY) are this Cerave bodywash scrubbed on using this scrubbie, followed after shower/bath with this aftershave and then this lotion after you give the aftershave time to air dry. I can also tell you that I've used that Buf Puf for probably a decade now and that alone doesn't do the trick. It wasn't until I got the other 3 products that I noticed a significant difference. Sadly, I started using all 3 at the exact same time, so I'm not sure which of the 3 are most helpful if you wanted to start slow and try one at a time.

I can tell you that shaving cream doesn't do anything for me in helping to prevent. And I've tried this after-shave powder and found it to be nice but not helpful for what I need. I sweat too much for a light powder to help with anything!

Edit: Just a side note - that Cerave lotion burns when you apply it right after shaving. I still do it and the burning stops after a second, but wanted to give fair warning!

I have used ocean forrest and happy frog and have never seen pH levels like that. Im sure the meter is not giving you good readings directly in soil. Dont worry about it just pH the water you put in to about 6.5 and the soil should be a good buffer.

This is a tool that you get what you pay for. I have the Thermoworks 8689. I like it, and it works really well. The probe stays wet in storage which many of the cheaper models don't do.

I had one of these styles and it certainly worked, but I was always having to re-calibrate it, even with frequent use. I can't say that I found it overly trustworthy.

u/ReallyHowSo · -1 pointsr/funny

Coffee addict here. Check out the reviews for this other caffeinated soap. I actually purchased some. Amazon

u/pipingstone · -29 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

You could try adding Shea Moisture African Black Soap! I have started washing my face and body with this stuff and I’ve really seen a difference in my skin! I’ve attached an Amazon link, but you can get it at Walmart for a better price! It smells strongly of black licorice in case you’re sensitive to smells! There are many other African Black Soaps you can research as well, this brand is just my favorite!
