Tbh, water intake is half the battle. Make sure you’re getting the recommended amount of daily water intake and then you can look up basic skin care routines that make sense for your particular skin chemistry. General routines don’t work for everybody cuz we all have different skin chemistries (some are more oily, others are dry, etc.)

like

Nighttime skincare routine (more important than morning routine, but follow both):
1. Cleanser
2. Exfoliator (max. 3x/ week)
3. Hydrating Toner
4. Acids (Hyaluronic Acid, AHA, etc)
5. Serum (Vitamins)
6. Eye Cream
7. Face Oil
8. Night Cream or Face mask (sheet masks are best, make sure you get all the product out of that packaging)

Morning Routine:
1. Cleanser
2. Toner/Astringent
3. Serum
4. Eye Cream
5. Moisturizer
6. Sunscreen (black ppl need to wear sunscreen more often, the sun often exacerbates hyperpigmentation)

Trust me, my sister got me hip, so I followed her routine and she let me wear her products. My skin is lit now.

M1-
1. Everyone with hair on top of their heads have edges.
2. I am a woman.
3. I clearly was responding and in agreement to K2 that Vaseline is lard-like and thus bad for your skin.
4. A lot of women (because I don’t know too many men in recent years who have had relaxers aka perms outside of Yung Joc 😂😂) who do relaxers at home put Vaseline around the edge of their hairline to protect their skins from being burned.
5. If we will put Vaseline on our skins to prevent a chemical burn, I don’t think that product will be great at long term skin use as I’ve stated in my first post.
6. Chill man, just experiment and use what works best for YOUR skin. People can give suggestions but we are all different and so our skincare will all vary. What works for one would not work for all.
7. You’re making mad assumptions. Why wouldn’t females respond with suggestions? Women invest in skincare products more than men. And despite what some will say skin is skin is skin. Being a man doesn’t mean your skin is so drastically different than a woman’s. We’re all the same species here and frankly we’re all consultants here so wouldn’t you want to consult a source with more information/experience 🤔

Ok I see, well I will say any doctor will tell you skin care is mostly about what going on inside your body, as in eating. Plus you ever think the multitude of all these man inorganic made chemicals people are putting on their skin is actually making it worse. I heard someone say their putting petroleum jelly on their face..you know that’s actually a byproduct from oil production ...just my two cents, I’ve had success just keeping it simple But to each his own

Shower
Lotion (aveeno, lubriderm, jergens are preferred brands)
Vaseline for lips
Coconut oil for scalp and beard
