NEW OR NEED HELP? Ask here!
If you’re new to SkincareAddiction: welcome!
This thread is the best place to start if you have questions about skincare products, your routine, and your skin. Our community is knowledgeable, and we want to help you have the best skin of your life!
Step 1: Read our resources
First take a look at our FAQ and Wiki! They include product recommendations and advice for skin concerns like acne, pigmentation, and dehydrated skin. Or search the sub using this awesome website. You might find a solution to your problem there!
If you can’t find an answer, or you have additional questions after reading, please move on to step 2!
Step 2: Ask for help
To give you the best advice possible, our users need relevant information about your skin and skincare. With your request for help please include:
The issue(s) you need help with.
Skin type. It’s OK to be subjective, how do you feel your skin is? Oily, dry? If you need help clarifying, check out this guide on skin types
Current routine with the full names of your products (try to separate it in to Morning, Evening, and Occasionally used)
How long you have been using your current routine, or product in question
Anything new you’ve introduced or started doing that might change the condition of your skin
Your location so we can recommend products/services available to you
Thanks for taking the time to include your information!
Firstly, thank you so much for helping out our community, without your knowledge and time ScA would not be the same!
Some things we’d ask for you to keep in mind: please don’t just downvote someone’s opinion or response because you disagree.
If you can, please take the time to tell them why you think their advice may be incorrect or harmful. It’s better for people to understand why something is a poor choice, instead of just being told that it is one.
