Treatments For Acne Rosacea

James asks…

Any good products to get rid of acne scars?

I have white skin, and acne scars, luckily I was on acutane(severe acne medicine) for enough time to get rid of the acne from coming, but not too long to pull away some scars, it was too strong and it gave me mood swings.
Is there any good products to help my acne scars go away? Thank you, 10 easy points I guess

admin answers:

Yes Bio Oil is good for scars. Here are some tips that might be helpful:
1) Tea Tree Oil
2) Lemon juice
3) Apple cider vinegar
4) Bamboo extract or Sarna lotion – good for rosacea, psoriasis, eczema
5) Bio Oil or BB cream for dark spots or scars

Applied lemon juice or apple cider vinegar to face or you can drink it through using it in water a few drops a day. Will help with both acne, and scars as well. Another way you can get rid of acne is by taking bamboo extract something I started when I had the problem really does work. Hope this works for you.

OR: Here are seven best methods to clear up blemishes.

Tea-Tree Oil
Tea tree oil is a popular home remedy for acne. An essential oil is diluted and applied topically to acne lesions. How is tea tree oil believed to work? Tea tree oil contains a constituent called terpinen-4-ol that’s thought to be responsible for most of tea tree oil’s anti-bacterial activity. Because tea tree oil can kill bacteria, applying topical tea tree oil to acne lesions is believed to kill Propionibacterium acnes, the skin-dwelling bacteria involved in acne.To treat mild, occasional breakouts.
How it works: Distilled from the leaves of an Australian shrub, tea-tree oil contains antibacterial and anti-microbial compounds called terpenoids that help kill the bacteria that, when trapped behind oil in a plugged pore, lead to acne breakouts. Try Burt’s Bees Herbal Blemish Stick ($8, burtsbees.com). A roller-ball tube makes for easy application.Studies testing tea-tree oil against the gold-standard acne treatment, benzoyl peroxide, have shown that while the latter works more quickly, tea-tree oil is equally effective over time. And it results in fewer annoying side effects—namely, dryness and redness.

Sulfur
If you have sensitive skin.
How it works: A time-tested, gentle acne fighter, sulfur “acts like a sponge to draw oil out of blocked pores,”. This dries up pimples and keeps sebum production in check, helping to prevent future blemishes. Sulfur has a distinct smell—think rotten eggs. Most preparations that use it contain a masking fragrance. However, to play it safe (and avoid scaring off coworkers), apply these products at night.

Salicylic Acid
To treat and soothe red, inflamed blemishes.Salicylic acid can have a calming, anti-inflammatory effect on pimples. “It also breaks down the ‘cement’ between cells in clogged pores to help unplug them,”
Salicylic acid is less irritating than more potent treatments, so it may be better for those with dry skin. It also tends to work well on stubborn blackheads.

Retinoids
Nightly to prevent breakouts.
How they work: Retinoids, which include over-the-counter retinol and prescription-strength Retin-A, reduce acne by altering the oil chemistry on the skin. “They help stop dense sebum from getting stuck within the pores,” says Gross. Without oil deposits, bacteria can’t grow and cause blemishes. Since retinoids can make skin sensitive to the sun, doctors recommend using them at night (and being diligent about wearing sunscreen during the day). To avoid irritation, apply every other evening to start, gradually working up to nightly use. Bonus benefit: Retinoids have been shown to increase collagen production and plump fine lines, making them a good choice if you’re dealing with acne and wrinkles.

Blue-Light Therapy
If you want the latest preventive treatment—and don’t mind plunking down some cash for it.
How it works: Once or twice a week, you use a handheld device to aim a beam of blue light onto your skin. “Its wavelength hits and kills acne-causing bacteria,” so any brewing pimples never come to the surface.This method will not address existing blemishes. Doctors typically suggest combining blue-light therapy with other remedies, such as topical treatments. To make things easy, consider a blue-light device that comes in a kit. At-home devices are smart alternatives to multiple costly treatments at a doctor’s office.

Oral Antibiotics
If you experience painful bumps below the skin surface and your pimples leave lasting marks. “Oral antibiotics act from the inside to kill the bacteria that cause acne,” says Keri. They also reduce the inflammation associated with pimples, so deep-seated blemishes hurt less and leave fewer scars.

Doctors usually prescribe them to get a severe condition under control and may then switch to topical treatments. Some antibiotics must be taken on an empty stomach, so read the label carefully.

Donna asks…

Can detoxing your liver prevent acne outbreaks?

The reason I ask, is because I came across a website of Leo who explained in detail how acne outbreaks are caused. No doctor would tell a patient about the true causes of acne. And it starts with the multifunctions of the liver filtering hormonal and cellular waste from the bloodstream and passing that through the bowels. When excessive waste has accumulated, the liver is sometimes unable to filter and purify the blood completely as it should. So these toxins break loose again and cause acne outbreaks in hands and legs of some people (not all people). Others suffer from other ailments due to a liver malfunction. All I wanted to ask if you are familiar with the true cause of acne outbreaks which can be stress, overexhaustion, depression, anger, which set hormonal toxins free which the liver is sometimes incapable of filtering them all. So treating the liver, detoxing the liver may be a means to cure acne outbreaks fully and mybe also to prevent such an awful disease to take place. A comment please on this issue….

admin answers:

Yes it can, if that is what is causing the acne in the first place.

I used to breakout in acne due to oily skin and have eczema myself. Genetic, Stress and Bacteria can affect hormones and can theoretically promote acne. Here are some home remedies that can help but do not mix them together. You want to make sure you exfoliate your face every other day. Before putting any application on face for acne rinse with cool water then pad dry.

1) Tea Tree Oil- An essential oil is diluted and applied topically to acne lesions.
2) Lemon oil or juice – Applied lemon juice or apple cider vinegar to face or you can drink it through using it in water a few drops a day. You can leave overnight don’t expose yourself to sunlight. Will help with both acne, and scars as well.
3) Mandarin oil
4) Cedar wood – good for eczema, psoriasis
5) Lavender
6) Apple cider vinegar
7) Bamboo extract or Sarna lotion – good for rosacea, psoriasis, eczema 8) Bio Oil or BB cream for dark spots or scars
9) Mederma good for stretch marks and scars
10) Toothpaste is very effective for acne leave on face for about 20 to 30 minutes then wash. Leave on to long will leave a scar.
11) Zinc really works on acne
12) 2% Erythromycin
13) Benzoin Peroxide
14) Hydrogen Peroxide 3% – It can help to dry out acne by killing bacteria on the skin. Soak a cotton ball in hydrogen peroxide and apply it either to the acne breakouts on your face. You also may opt to apply hydrogen peroxide to your entire face to help prevent future breakouts. Allow the hydrogen peroxide to do its job — wait until the bubbling stops in approximately a minute or two. Rinse your face with water. Apply an oil-free moisturizer to prevent skin from drying out.
15) Vitamin B3- also known as niacin. It promotes healthy skin, can be utilized as an acne treatment.
16) Retinoid- increase collagen production and plump fine lines, making it a good choice if you’re dealing with acne and wrinkles.
17) Sulfur- dries up pimples and keeps sebum production in check, helping to prevent future blemishes. Sulfur has a distinct smell think rotten eggs.
18) Coconut oil good for acne and scars.
19) Turmeric powder is also good for acne.
20) Neutrogena products
21) Brown Listerine also sucks the life of your acne wash after about 15 minutes.
22) Witch Hazel & Rubbing Alcohol both are good for acne
23) Aloe Vera either from the plant itself or gel apply on the infected area.
24) Neem oil-good for acne, psoriasis, eczema, skin ulcers (taken either orally in capsule or externally in oil)

This is something I use every day and I got rid of my cystic acne and my eczema. I really recommend this. Neem oil: It is powerful antiviral and antibacterial properties, beneficial to those who suffer from various skin conditions like acne, psoriasis, eczema, skin ulcers, helps one treat hair related problems like dandruff and itchy scalp. Dental care products like toothpaste, mouth washes and rinses all use the neem oil’s antiseptic properties to keep teeth health and gums free of infection. Other benefits also include its use in household items like mosquito repellents, disinfectants and personal hygiene products. If you like you can purchase at http://www.amazon.com/ref=ap_frn_logo or in health food stores. It is the same price as some of the acne medications, either prescribe or over-the-counter.

Member of acne.org have commented and sworn by Lavenders ability to not only fight acne, but also reduce the redness, and it makes the skin baby soft!

Acne Treatments That Work Overnight

Lizzie asks…

What happens if I consistently do not wash my face at night?

I am trying to get rid of my acne. My morning routine is a gentle face wash, then moisturizer, then an ointment. At night I wash my face again. I am wondering if it makes a big difference if I consistently forget or am too tired too wash my face at night.

admin answers:

3 Reasons Why You Should Wash Your Face At Night

1. Removing dirt and makeup will avoid blemishes and breakouts

Doesn’t matter how tired you are, washing your face at night is not something you can skip. Leaving makeup on your face at night can clog your pores and cause breakouts. And dealing with pimples is never fun, and it is even more irritating when you think you could have avoided it by taking off your makeup at night (trust me, I’ve been there). But don’t think that you can avoid washing your face at night if you don’t wear makeup. Whenever we touch our faces with our hands, even though we do so unintentionally, we could transfer bacteria and dirt on it that will still cause problems if not properly removed before going to sleep.

2. When your skin is clean, it better absorbs skincare products

Our skin repairs itself at night so it is important we take care of it even when we sleep by applying a good moisturizer that will keep it hydrated overnight (the one you applied in the morning has completely evaporated by now) and any other skincare product of our choice to target any concerns we may have (like anti-aging creams and serums or AHA/BHA exfoliators for example). But before using these products, we need to wash our skin to improve their efficacy. When applied on clean skin, in fact, skincare products penetrate better and more deeply into the skin, performing better overall. After spending money on retinol or anti-acne treatments, you wouldn’t want to somewhat compromise their efficacy but applying them on a dirty canvas, would you?

3. Washing your face at night helps to prevent acne

If you have acne or your skin is prone to this condition, or you just get breakouts often, then washing your face at night will help. We have already seen how makeup clogs our pores causing blemishes if not properly removed but that’s not all. Our skin at night produces oil, which can get trapped into the pores. And the acne-causing bacteria thrives on this oil. Washing our faces will help keeping the pores clean, thus reducing the ability of bacteria to flourish and inflame our skin.

Mark asks…

What is the best acne face wash? Or How do you get rid of the red scars left from acne that won’t go away?

My face is somewhat oily and gets dry easily. My face doesn’t have bad acne it just pops up a little bit.

admin answers:

Here are a few tips to get rid of the red scars:
Stop popping! It’s tempting, but honestly, it make things worse. If you absolutely must pop, make sure that the area and your fingers are clean and disinfected. Best method of dealing with acne scars and cuts is just to let your body do the works. Keep the irritated area clean and use as little make-up on the area as possible.
Use a Scar Treatment. For post-inflammatory hyper-pigmentation (brown or red marks on the skin) try something like “Zenmed’s Scar Treatment Kit”, Neutrogena Advanced Solutions Acne Mark Fading Peel. Mederma is also a good “spot” treatment. For “ice picks” or “crater-like” scars, which are actual dents in the skin, often the most effective treatment is seeing a doctor.
Moisturize and protect. Always use an oil-free moisturizer that has SPF. Try Body Guard Exquisitely Light SPF 30 For Face & Body.
Triple Antibiotic ointment If you put this on overnight, it will fade your scars and get rid of them. Don’t put too much on in one spot, it can cause your skin to get overly oily.

How do you get rid of the big, painful zits?

Is there any trick to help shrink it and make its going away process a little faster? I don’t usually have much of a problem with acne i just occasionally get these and they’re extremely bothersome.

Is there any face wash, moisturizer, any other products or any home remedy or trick to help get rid of acne and that you personally find effective clearing your skin?

Thanks in advance :]

First of all, make sure you do not pick at it. I promise it will only make it worse and you might end up getting red dots on your face afterwords.

Treatments For Acne On Face

Richard asks…

Which Acne Treatment will clear my face the best/fastest?

Clean And Clear Advantage(Acne Control Kit), Neutrogena(The pink one that’s supposed to smell good, I’m not sure of the exact name), or Regular Soap.

DO NOT RECOMMEND PRO ACTIV OR CLEARASIL,
They don’t work on me! Pro activ doesn’t do a thing, even after 5 months and Clearasil just gives me more acne.

IF YOU WANT MORE INFO READ THE FOLLOWING, IF NOT JUST ANSWER:
My friend used to use regular acne products on her face and it was bad, like you couldnt see a single clear spot on her forehead, and her entire face was always swollen with them and then she started using Soap and it got better. That’s why I included that.

I used to use The Clean and Clear Acne Kit but all of my friends said that it stopped working after awhile, I want something that’ll work for atleast a year on my skin. Everyone said it stopped working after a month. It worked really good on my skin at first but i stopped using it after my friends told me this(i had been using it for about 3 weeks)

I used to use Neutrogena All the time and it always cleared things up, not super fast, but fast and It was good. I really liked it, i’ve never kept up a schedule with The new kind i have to know if it works or not So, I’m just going to go with whatever is most recommended.

My Skin is oily, and delicate. I stress alot and I never know what works. I’ve also asked another question like this but I didn’t seem to get answers I had hopped for.
DO NOT RECOMMEND ANY OF THE OTHER THINGS I HAVE SAID.
Anything else, Feel free to recommend but also if you had to pick please include one of those ^^^ in your answer.
ALSO, I usually wear makeup everyday(cover up) I use a non-oily or pore clogging Cover up, I’m not sure of the brand I forget but thats just a little extra to add…I guess?

admin answers:

Ok, I had bad acne on my face and I did an Aspirin facial. What you do is take a couple Aspirin tablets and crush them up into a little bowl. Mix the powder with some water until it becomes a paste. Apply to your face and spread around evenly. Keep this on for a couple minutes and it should sooth pain and cure acne. Wash off with warm water and splash cold water on your face to shrink your pores. Dab dry with a towel. I do not recommend doing this more than once a day!!!

*Is most likely to take more than one time*

Take the following self-care steps to lessen the effects of acne:

Clean your skin gently with a mild, non-drying soap (like Dove, Neutrogena, or Basics.) Remove all dirt or make-up. Wash once or twice a day, including after exercising. However, avoid excessive or repeated skin washing.
Shampoo your hair daily, especially if it’s oily. Comb or pull your hair back to keep the hair out of your face. Avoid tight headbands.
Try not to squeeze, scratch, pick, or rub the pimples. Although it might be tempting to do this, it can lead to scarring and skin infections.
Avoid touching your face with your hands or fingers.
Avoid greasy cosmetics or creams. Look for water-based or “non-comedogenic” formulas. Take make-up off at night.
If these steps do not clear up the blemishes to an acceptable level, try over-the-counter acne medications. These creams and lotions are applied directly to the skin. They may contain benzoyl peroxide, sulfur, resorcinol, or salicylic acid. They work by killing bacteria, drying up the oil, and causing your skin to peel.

If the pimples are still a problem, a dermatologist can prescribe stronger medications and discuss other options with you.

Prescription medicines include:

Oral antibiotics (taken by mouth) such as minocycline, doxycycline, and tetracycline
Topical antibiotics (applied to the skin) such as clindamycin or erythromycin
Synthetic vitamin A derivatives called retinoids such as retinoic acid cream or gel (Retin-A) and isotretinoin pills (Accutane) — pregnant women and sexually active adolescent females should NOT take Accutane, as it causes severe birth defects
Prescription formulas of benzoyl peroxide, sulfur, resorcinol, salicylic acid
Birth control pills can sometimes help clear up acne. (In some cases, though, they may make it worse.)

Your doctor may also suggest chemical skin peeling, removal of scars by dermabrasion, or removal or drainage of cysts.

A small amount of sun exposure may improve acne. However, excessive exposure to sunlight or ultraviolet rays is not recommended because it increases the risk of skin cancer.

Laura asks…

Oxy Acne Treatment Maximum Face Cleanser 10% BP?

My mom bought me this because she thought it would help.
The first night of using it, my face started STINGING LIKE HELL before I even put it on!! I proceeded to put it on and WHAM! Stinging instantly!! I had to turn the shower on and wash it off ASAP!! I mean, that shit stings like ****!! Is this supposed to happen!?!? I’m considering stopping the treatment because the directions say, ” If mild stinging occurs, stop use “.. The stinging I experienced was MASSIVE STINGING. It still stings right now and it’s been over 4 hours!!
Eek,!- Help!

admin answers:

I personally love benzoyl peroxide, but if your skin is reacting very badly to it, you might be allergic. You CAN be allergic to BP!

If it’s your first BP product, you should start with a lower dose to get your skin used to it. I use 10%, but I also have been using it for years and my skin now thinks it’s no big deal. At the start… Oh yes, it thought it was a big deal and punished me for it. But peeling isn’t necessarily bad… Not when you’re trying to get rid of acne.

If your skin is not horrible with zits, then I would suggest backing off BP completely and trying some gentler things like salicylic acid, which is in so many over the counter products. You can always try spot treating with BP to try to get used to it while it is still rough on your skin. And always USE A GOOD MOISTURIZER WITH IT. Anything that won’t clog pores. I use really thick Lumene cream for sensitive skin with it to keep me from being constantly peeling. It doesn’t have to be a special acne cream, which might even dry you out worse.

Also, to disinfect the skin (like BP does) you can put Neosporin on individual zits and do honey masks. Honey is moisturizing and antibacterial, so it really is amazing for you when you have pimple problems. I use them all the time. You can just do straight, raw honey or add things like a little cinnamon and cloves to help get some other awesome effects. Just google it and find a mask you might like.

FOR TONIGHT: ICE YOUR FACE. Seriously, it’ll cool it down and help reduce any swelling. Find a face lotion (anything in the house that looks thick and hopefully says noncomedogenic) and slather it on. Having a super red face on top of acne makes the acne look way worse. Now is the time for damage control. Also taking something anti-inflammatory (like one Advil) might help.

I hope you feel better soon! And look for a gentler solution too, if you don’t decide to stick with BP (at least go down in concentration!)

Most people who suffer from acne go out and spend good money on common over-the-counter acne treatment products. The truth is, most of these products are full of chemicals that can actually slow down the healing of acne, and irritate your skin, causing farther breakouts.

When an acne product has 20 ingredients listed on it, it can be hard to know if one of those ingredients is actually stopping you from having success. It can be even harder when you can’t pronounce the ingredient, much less know what it is and how it is going to affect your skin. Most mainstream acne treatments are not only much more expensive than common household items, but they also don’t always work as well either. With that in mind, I will list some basic household items that can work wonders on clearing up your skin.

Baking soda ? A very cheap cooking ingredient that most people have in their homes already, baking soda can be used as a great scrub. The purpose of a scrub is to exfoliate the skin, removing dead skin that can eventually clog pores and lead to acne spots. To start off, you’ll want to mix a small amount of baking soda with some water for form a paste. Baking soda is very effective as a scrub, so you want to be sure to be extra careful when applying it to your face. Gently massage the paste into your skin for ten to fifteen seconds. Then rinse the baking soda off, and pat your face dry with a clean towel.

Apple Cider Vinegar ? Though most people that use vinegar to treat acne use the apple cider form of vinegar, you can also use plain old regular vinegar. Regardless of which type you use, vinegar can be very helpful with it comes to clearing up acne. It can kill off acne causing bacteria, balance your skin’s pH, and absorb extra oil on your skin.

Starting with clean, dry skin, apply diluted vinegar (eight parts water to one part vinegar) directly to your skin with a cotton ball, and leave it on. If you want, you can also use a stronger vinegar solution (say, 2 or 3 parts water to 1 part vinegar), and apply it directly to problem areas, rinsing it off after ten minutes.

Lemon or lime juice can also be substituted for vinegar. Both of these juices are rich in citric acid, and can exfoliate your skin very well, halting the growth of acne spots, as well as fading previous, non-active acne quicker.

Egg Whites ? Rich in protein, egg whites can be used as a mask to heal and rebuild your skin. It can also help to absorb excess oil from your skin. To start off, crack an egg, removing the yolk so that just the egg whites are left behind. Beat these egg whites, and apply them directly to your face. Let it sit for fifteen minutes, and then rinse the egg off.

Oatmeal ? As odd as it may seem, oatmeal can absorb unwanted oil and draw out impurities which reside deep in your skin. Cook some plain oatmeal like you would for consumption. Let it cool off, and rub it over your clean skin. Let it sit for a while, like you would a mask, and then rinse off. If you do this on a regular basis, you should begin to start noticing results soon.

Tea Tree Oil ? TTO is a commonly used all-natural household antiseptic, which you can pick up at most drugstores or supermarkets. You can apply TTO directly to acne spots to kill bacteria, or, if you strongly dilute it with another oil (such as jojoba oil), over your entire face. Tea tree gel can be easier to apply than the oil, and many are made for applying over large areas of skin, so they aren’t quite as strong as straight TTO and do not need to be diluted.

Pantothenic Acid (Also known as Vit. B5) ? Pantothenic acid can be taken in large quantities for the benefit of acne reduction. B5 works by helping your body to metabolize fats which would otherwise be later turned into sebum (oil) and excreted through the skin. Small amounts of B5 won’t help though, and it has to be taken several times a day.

To help with acne, you will need to take 2.5 grams of pantothenic acid (the powder form is much easier to take), 4 times per day, for a total of 10 grams per day.

Aloe Vera ? Aloe Vera has been used for many years in kitchens for topical application to burns. Another benefit of aloe is that it can prevent scaring, fade marks and help heal acne spots.

You now have an idea of some basic household items you can use on your skin, that work better than many OTC acne products, and are much cheaper to use. Since we have only really covered basic acne treatments, you can always take this to another level and take all natural, internal acne treatments.

This sums up our basic list of natural alternatives for chemical based acne treatment products. You can take this a step farther by attacking your acne from the inside out. Acne has been shown numerous times to be very closely affected by the digestive system, so keeping your entire digestive system working as smooth as possible can help reduce acne. I will help give you a basic idea of some all natural products you can take to help clear up acne.

Cucumber, lemon and carrot juice, brewer’s yeast, and active charcoal pills are all capable of helping the digestive system function normally. Since the digestive system is closely related with the health of the skin, they should help reduce acne breakouts. Flax seed can also be wonderful for helping your skin heal faster.

Steven asks…

How to get rid of acne scars?

mhm how to get rid of acne scars? I heard emu oil and bio oil work but never tried it… any oils or natural things that work?

admin answers:

I had severe acne on my face. But then I use is Clinical Super Serum and the condition soon improved. The best thing about the serum is that it also fades post-acne marks and scars on the face. I’m still using it and the spots on my face are gradually fading away.

The worst thing about acne is the scars and the marks it leaves behind. Some of the scars tend to disappear with time but some are so grave that it can be disfiguring which may make our heart sink.

The post acne marks is the hyper pigmented or red marks and is called as the post inflammatory marks. These marks take at least 6-12 months to completely disappear. When these marks last longer than a year then it turns into a scar. A number of things could be done to reduce the redness and to quicken its pace to disappear. There are also a number of home remedies available. Following are some of them.

Rub lemon juice on the scar/marks. This will lighten the color. Apply the juice and leave it on for about 10 minutes. Wash off your face and then apply a sun block lotion.

2) Make a paste of sandalwood powder, black gram powder and rose water. Apply it on the area and I possible leave it overnight. Wash it with cold water the next morning. If you find that it makes you skin too dry then add some milk into it.

If these tips did not work for you, do not lose heart you can still try some other tips. Good Luck!

Acne Treatments For Oily Skin

David asks…

I have dry skin and acne?

I have never had a problem with acne until now. Quitting heroin one year ago has driven my hormones crazy, and this is one of the results apparently. It’s almost all on my forehead, and I’ve been washing it more, avoiding moisturizer, putting honey on it (read it online, who knows if it works though), and I recently bought black soap, because people swear by it. It has made my skin much softer, but the acne isn’t going away! Everything I read online has to do with oily skin acne treatments, so I was wondering if it made a difference since I have dryer skin. If so, does anyone have any suggestions? Home remedies that have worked for you?

admin answers:

Talk to your dermatologist :)

Sharon asks…

What acne treatment should i use for my skin?

I used to have perfect skin but recently i have been getting a few pimples and lots of white spots under my eyes. I have semi oily skin. Should i use proactive? The clean and clear advantage kit? Or something else? Thank you so much! Also.. how well did it work and in how long? thank again!

admin answers:

I love love love my skin care routine and it sounds like i have similar skin to you
-biore complexion clearing/ blemish fighting ice cleaner
-biore complexion clearing pore unclogging scrub
-clean and clear morning burst in shower facial
-olay refreshing toner

for breakouts i use neutrogena rapid clear, because it uses salicylic acid, which for me works better and is less harsh on my skin

for the times when i just cant help picking at the zit i use A+D ointment. (its white and like yellow-gold). This stuff is genius. Though its for diaper rash, it works perfectly on all cuts by closing it up sooner and helps reduce scarring

for the oil i use clean and clear oil absorbing sheets

i hope that helps in any way (seriously though, try the a+d ointment)

Donna asks…

What is the best face wash/ face wash routine for oily acne prone skin?

I am 16 years old and i have oily skin. It is not EXTREMELY oily but it does get pretty bad throughout the day. I think this is one of the reasons i break out. I know i break out because of hormones once a month, but even besides that my acne never seems to fully go away. What is the best facial cleanser for my situation? Also does anyone know what kind of routine i should have every day with washing my face?

admin answers:

Hello Haley! I totally understand your situation! I am a guy but I also have a permanent oily skin condition. However, at your age I wouldn’t be too worried about it as you are still undergoing puberty (which can last till you reach 20 years old) and girls do have breakouts every end of months, as you stated. However, there are treatments out there to sooth your skin and prevent the discomfort. I have personally given up on chemical treatments as these don’t seem to have any effect. However, do try ice cold water face washes with a mild soap/ oil free (2 to 3 times a day should really help). Follow the link http://www.greenmedinfo.com/blog/11-herbs-used-traditional-acne-remedies to find more herbal/bio remedies for oily skin and acne. Hope to have answered your question and good luck!
