If you’ve got a skin care question, chances are that Reddit’s got the answer. The one million members of the SkincareAddiction community work together like super sleuths to solve any skin-related problem their fellow users throw at them, whether it’s which products get rid of dark spots or why their eyebrows are suddenly full of dandruff. In 2019, though, there were five such skin-care topics that reigned as the most popular: acne, cleansing, AHAs, aging, and cystic acne.

As beauty editors, it’s our job here at Well+Good to have our fingers on the pulse of what people are talking about in the beauty world. And—surprise—Reddit’s most popular skin care questions of 2019 were among the most popular topics on our site, too. Over the past year, we’ve consulted with derms and other beauty pros to answer the most pressing skin care questions that people had this year, from how to treat acne and sensitive skin at the same time to whether or not you should be washing your face in the shower (and what cleanser you should be using if you decide to do so).

Scroll through to see some of our top stories of the year on the topics Redditors couldn’t stop talking about, plus some serious skin-care intel from our resident Dear Derm star and dermatologist, Mona Gohara, MD. That way, the questions you were asking this year don’t have to be the ones you’re asking next year, too… just in case Reddit left you hanging this time around.

1. Acne

2. Cleansing

3. AHAs

4. Aging

5. Cystic acne

These weren’t the only things Redditors were talking about this year: These were the beauty brands they couldn’t get enough of. Plus, why the “skin-care is everywhere” trend won’t be going anywhere in 2020.
