Here are the top 5 ways to get rid of pimples fast.::
Ice can be used to quickly get rid of pimples. It helps in improving blood circulation to the affected area, and in freezing the skin pores and removing dirt and oil accumulated on the skin. You can use icecubes or crushed ice, whichever is convenient.
A- Wrap the ice in a piece of cloth and hold it on the affected skin area for a few seconds.
B- Wait a few minutes and repeat the process.
When used repeatedly on the pimples throughout the day, ice helps reduce inflammation or swelling and will immediately soothe your skin.
Another quick way to get rid of pimples is the use of lemon juice, which is rich in vitamin C. Lemon juice helps pimples dry up faster. Be sure to use fresh lemon juice and not bottled juice, which has preservatives. There are a couple of ways to apply this remedy.
A-Dip a clean cotton swab in fresh lemon juice and apply it to the pimples before going to bed.
B-You can also make a paste by mixing one tablespoon of lemon juice with one teaspoon of cinnamon powder and put it on the pimples overnight. In the morning, wash the skin well with lukewarm water. However, this particular remedy is not suitable for those with sensitive skin.
Honey is a source of natural antibiotics that can speed up the healing process,as well as help prevent infections.
A- Dip and clean cotton swab in honey, put it directly on the affected area and leave it on for half an hour.
B- Wash the skin well with lukewarm water.
Another option is to mix honey and cinnamon together to make a paste and applying it over the pimples before going to bed. In the morning, there will be less inflammation or swelling. Wash the skin well with cold water.
The toothpaste that you use every morning to clean your teeth also can be used to treat pimples quickly.
It is most effective when used following the ice remedy. You must use white toousing gel toothpaste.
A- Apply some white toothpaste over the affected skin area before going to bed.
B- In the morning, wash your face with water and you will see a significant improvement in the swelling.
If you wish, you can repeat the process in the daytime also. Just make sure the toothpaste remains on the pimples for at least half an hour.
Steaming is wonderful for your skin at any time, but particularly when you have pimples. The steam will open
A- Fill a large container with hot water and allow the steam to come in contact with your fa
B- Rinse your face with lukewarm water and, after drying, apply an oil-free moisturizer.

I don’t care about side effects because they’re usually minor. I want something to get rid of the acne on my face and on my back. I want it to feel smooth, like silk. What prescription could I ask for to make my acne go away and change the texture?
I’m sorry i dont know any prescription for acne – but i do know what i give my teenage son
I give him a ZINC mineral supplement – its very good for acne and skin in general and when he takes it i do see a differenc.
On top of that he sticks to twice a day cleanse – once a month mask and drinks loads of water and skips fizzy drinks as much as possible
Hell, i am 16 years old and I have had acne since i was 13, but it started getting worse from 14-16. The acne is mostly on the sides of my cheeks next to my side burns and on my arms and a little on my back.I tried proactiv but i found out i am allergic to benzoly peroxide. I tried acne face wash with Salicylic acid and spot treatment with Salicylic acid but they have not helped much. I drink 12 8 oz glasses of water every day, i don’t eat greasy foods, i workout at the gym 6 days a week, wash my face 4 times a day and shower everyday. I talked to my doctor about my acne and she prescribed me with a oral medication called Doxycycline. I have been taking Doxycycline for 5 months and have not noticed any improvement. So what am i doing wrong or is it just my age, thats what alot of people tell me. Thanks in advance
~Over washing your face will irritate it… Cut down your face washing to twice a day…
~Treat your face very gently and don’t scrub your face when washing or drying. Be gentle and softly rub when washing and pat it dry
~I don’t know if you try to pop your pimples or if you pick at them but you do not want to mess with them at all. Again it causes irritation to your skin
~Keep up your drinking water and eating healthy habits!
~Still use the prescribed medication from your doctor. Most medicines take at least 6 months to show effects
~And lastly, limit yourself to working out about 3-4 times a week. Don’t put all that stress on your body by working out almost everyday… The number one cause of pimples is stress
I have acne, and my face is turning pretty dry because of Accutane. I wonder if it’s alright if I use the clinique cleanser and moisturizer on my face with acne? If it will not irritate or worse the acne?
Cant say .. Depends on your skin..

I’m fed up with the redness, irritation, pain, blackheads, puss, oily skin, and acne products. Is there an inexpensive product/home remedy I can use to get rid of it forever and never have to deal with it again?
I do eat a well balanced diet. But I can’t exercise much due to the hole in my heart and the pressure on my trachea.
I also drink plenty of water. And I’ll try the African shea butter first, and if that doesn’t work, then I’ll ask my mom to make me an appointment with a dermatologist to see if I can get the tetracycline.
Tetaracyclin – an antibiotic… Is commonly reffered by doctors to reduce acne. Use it for atleast 3 months one tablet a day and u’ll permanently get rid of this ugly acne
I have a little acne that i want to get rid of & i need some help! Thanks!
Okay this reallyyyyyy works!!!! I did this just a few days ago because i was starting to break out from my period, so i used this trick.
Mix 1 tsp. Of honey
a pinch of cinnamon
put it on your face
then leave it on for the night. Yeah it’s gonna be a little messy, so put a towel over your pillow if you don’t wanna get it gross. And if you do this for 2 weeks, then your acne will literally be gone forever, its pretty sick. But if you dont wanna do that, you get just put toothpaste on the pimple for the night and it’ll be gone by morning
I have bumps on my faces that are red and big and it hurts when u press against it but it wont pop and it keeps getting worst =[ i wanna find a way to fix this. The bumps talks forever to go away it stays there and leave a bumpy scar
Zinc – Zinc is the Acne stopper. It works in several ways to both treat acne and prevent it. It helps the body regulate certain hormones which prevents acne, but it also helps with wound healing, tissue regeneration and boosting the body’s immune system.Most people in the United States actually have a marginal zinc deficiency, but you can get zinc from many of your favorite foods, such as seeds, nuts, legumes and whole grains.
Vitamin A – Vitamin A is a fat soluble vitamin that helps you have beautiful, healthy hair and skin. You can find vitamin A from fruits and vegetables. Dark green vegetables and deep yellow vegetables as fruits give you a good dose of vitamin A by providing carotenes. Oatmeal is a good source of vitamin A, as well as cantaloupe, honeydew melon, broccoli, spinach and sweet potato. Liver contains a megadosis: watch out, vitamin A is stored in the body and you can actually get vitamin A poisoning.
Vitamin E – Vitamin E helps to normalize decreased levels of antioxidant enzymes. This is often prevalent in male acne patients, but vitamin E has proven beneficial to both male and female acne sufferers. Almonds, sunflower seeds, peanut butter, spinach, broccoli and mango are all great sources of vitamin E.Even a snack as simple as ¼ to ½ cups of raw nuts and seeds can help your skin become clearer and healthier.
Selenium – Selenium works much like vitamin E in that it also helps to normalize decreased levels of antioxidant enzymes. Selenium can be found in foods such as vegetables, meats and bread. Some nuts, such as Brazil nuts and walnuts are also rich in selenium. You can also supplement your diet with selenium, taking 100 to 200 micrograms per day. However, 3 ½ ounces of beef has 35 micrograms of selenium and 3 ounces of tuna has 63. Brazil nuts, though, are the winner with 544 micrograms of selenium per ounce.

I’m using a face wash with salicylic acid and a topical acne treatment as well, but only on my forehead. Is it possible that both the acne medications trying to work together are making my breakouts worse?
Okay my brother if you want to remove acne permanently you cannot use topicals.
The truth is internal parasites, yeasts & candida are causing your acne. Now when you eat junk food or have hormonal fluctuations there becomes a stronger need for efficient removal of toxins.
When the body’s eliminatory organs are over-burdened the skin needs to be used as an elimination channel hence acne.
Honestly you can keep thinking topicals will help or you can visit http://www.acnedelete.com
I’ve created the site myself, nothing to sell, pure information for curing acne. Please comment on the website to let me know what you think.
I seem to have a constant stream of spots/pimples on my forehead, not really anywhere else, I can’t get rid of it. I use clearasil rapid action wides and cream but they have no effect after a while of using them… How can I dry up forehead acne either using things I will have in my house, or treatments that actually work?
You could try one of the many over the counter cleanser/degreasers, most are based on peroxide, Panoxyl is a typical example. If this fails the next step is to see your GP for topical or oral antibiotics. Avoid tetracycline and oxytetracyline as they are awkward to take and not very effective, minocycline or lymecycline are better.
People say that Pro activ is good but when you stop using it, you break out worse. I want an acne treatment that ACTUALLY WORKS! I have heard that the Clinique 3 step works but i don’t wanna try it unless it is actually gonna do something good for my skin. From experience, what worked best for you?
also i play waterpolo so my skin is always very dried out
It’s not really a BEST ACNE treatment because everybody has different acne types… Some break out more than others… Some people don’t even have acne. Honestly I never tried pro activ but I have used AVEENO acne cleanser and I love it…. It dosent make your face feel dry when your done drying. Try that… You can get it from Wal*Mart… Or Neutrogena….. I don’t really like it because it kinda made a mark on my face but try AVEENO acne cleanser and see what happens!!

really easy face mask…
i have honey powder and tomatos can i make a face mask out of that?
+does anyone know how to get rid of acne REALLY fast?!
An easy mask is to use oatmeal mixed in warm water and add honey to that so it gets soft but not running wet. You want it to stick to your face and neck.
Leave it on for 15 minutes and wash off with warm water. The oatmeal can make a mess when it dries but it helps take redness away from any zits. It may be best to do this before you shower because oatmeal can get in your hair. Trust me though — this stuff really works.
The mask will feel dry on your face but when you wash it off the oatmeal leave your face feeling smooth.
If you have any aloe vera apply that to moisturize your face. It is not greasy and is very good to use if you have acne since there is no oil in aloe vera.
What is a prodect that is fast…on that commercial were it shows after 1 day,then 2 days, and its fading fast a easy? Does that work? What should I buy that is fast and affective that wont break my 14 year old budget?

Hope I helped
i want to get rid of blackheads fast and easy can u guys help but i dont want anything expennsive either thanx guys cus i hav alot of blackheads well …..not that much .thanx for all the answers
Blackheads are technically referred to as open comedones. These bumps are often indented and may look like tiny plugs. The confusion over blackheads and whiteheads has to do with the fact that blackheads accompany oily skin where whiteheads could be present on oily or dry skin.
The most common method for getting rid of blackheads is to gently squeeze them. Removing the “stuff” inside of the blackhead helps the skin because you are relieving the pressure which causes the damage.
1. Use a mild scrub or to remove any dead cells and expose the blackhead.
2. Pat your face dry.
3. Place a slightly warm compress on your face for approximately 10-15 minutes in order to soften the blackhead, making it easier to remove.
4. Pat your face dry again.
5. Place a piece of tissue on the tip of each finger to avoid slipping, which could tear the skin and cause further damage.
6. Gently apply even pressure to both sides of the blackhead by pushing down, then up around the blemish. You’re trying to apply the pressure from *underneath* the blackhead.
Only attempt this once or twice. If it does not “pop”, you may bruise the skin, make the blackhead worse, and could cause scarring.
More than treating the blackhead it is essential to prevent it. How do you do it ? -
1. Avoid using creamy, greasy, and thick (emollient) products. This alone will greatly lessen your chances of sprouting blackheads.
2. Use a gentle and water-soluble acne cleanser.
3. DO NOT use bar soap. The ingredients that hold soap in a bar form can clog the pores in your skin. They can also cause skin cells to flake off prematurely and clog the pores. If you have dry skin you will need to use a cleanser that has a bit of moisturizer in it, but be careful! The excess moisturizers can cause an increase in oil on your skin.
4. Exfoliate to eliminate dead skin cells. If there are no skin cells to clog the pores, the natural oil is able to flow through freely. Skin Exfoliation also removes the built up dead cells from inside the pores that cause them to become misshapen and more-easily clogged. Using an skin exfoliant that contains 1% or 2% (BHA or Salicylic Acid) will penetrate the lining of the pore. If you are unable to use BHAs, you could use products containing alpha hydroxy acids (AHA), however these acids are only good for surface exfoliation because they do not penetrate the pore lining.
5. Absorb excess oil. If you have oily skin, try using a clay maskthat does not contain mint, peppermint or other irritating ingredients. This will absorb the oil that may clog the poor. If you have dry skin, this is not necessary because pimples on dry skin are caused by oil inside the pore, not on the surface of the skin. Also, oil-absorbing papers may help to reduce the oil in your pores.
6. Visit your dermatologist. Retinoids, which are a form of Vitamin A, can help regulate the pore shape which will keep oil flowing normally. The most common retinoids are tretinoin and adapalene, found in prescriptions such as Avita, Renova, Retin-A, Tazorac, and Differin.
7. Other medications. Hormone blockers and low-dose birth control pills can lower levels of androgens (the male hormone) and Accutane should be discussed with your physician in severe cases of oily skin and breakouts. -

I have had ipl laser hair removal done on my face. However, I am also keen to have some microdermabrasion done to reduce my acne scars. I am wondering what gap to leave inbetween having these two treatments?
That depends. Is this your first treatment? As you proceed with the treatment series, you skin will get more and more used to the treatment (and there will be less irritation because there will be less hair). I have had over 30 laser hair treatments and used to do a microderm once a week and a full derm once a week. Now I get a chemical peel regularly. As soon as your face is back to its normal colour and the pain is completely gone you’ll be fine.
As far as acne scars, you may want to look in to laser scar removal. Just get a European facial once a month and work in some scar treatments and the results will amaze you. I DON’T recommend at home microdermabrasion kits because you can damage your skin.
I have acne scars all over my back and face
i was wondering how much to completely get rid of all of them fast?
proactive isnt for scars dummy just acne and right now i dont have acne, just scars
Acne scars can be removed by laser or IPL but better consult your dermatologist first because s/he has to see what kind of scars they are (if they’re very deep etc) ..it will definitely take more than one session (so don’t think that you can get rid of them very fast). It’s also a bit expensive (since you want it on your back which is quite a large area). Prices for laser treatment vary (depends on the country and so on) but to give you an idea it would cost around 100euros (sry I don’t know the equivalent in american dollars) per session (for your back and face)
I heard cocoa butter lotions get rid of scars, and I have acne scars on my face so I want to try getting rid of that. I’m wondering if it would clog my pores or make me break out more. I’ve done research on this question and it was confusing because people said it worked and others said it didnt. And what about lubridurm for a moisture on my face? Help please? Also what would be a good home-product to get rid of pimples?
Anything that you simply apply to skin is not going to do anything to get rid of scars. I had facial acne and other pronounced accident scars, freckles, pigmentation, age spots and this completely got rid of them all.
See testimonials below ##
Use a pure natural oil – olive, grape seed, rose hip oils work – they are noncomedogenic so do not clog, cause breakouts or make skin oily – and massage over and over quite vigorously (that is the key to it working!). Do forward and back, not circular massage using tips and front of fingers and sometimes palms. Skin has to adjust so gradually build to a 15/20 min or more daily treatment (can do in one, two or more sessions).for fastest results. Depending on how vigorous/how long you do, expect to start seeing results in 1 or 2 weeks. Keep it up and overtime it will get rid of them completely.
DO NOT use Lubriderm. Or cocoa butter. Go to this site “Skin Deep Database” and first enter Lubriderm in the search box and you will see it has ingredients that are severely skin harming. Then enter cocoa butter in the search box and again you will see many brands are also skin harming.
Pure natural oils are perfect, safe, modest cost moisturizers. Leaving oil on is more beneficial.and greatly helps to keep skin young and can also rejuvenate it. Only lightly wipe away surface excess with water and tissues

I have a few acne scars round my face, some are red and some are purple and I was just wondering what was a good product to get rid of acne scars? I don’t want to spend to much but I just want them gone, I’ve heard of vitamin e oil but does it work?
Ok don’t listen to the others, I’m 15 and I have acne scars, so I know what I’m talking about. Get a vitamin E moisterising cream or lotion, and apply to your face twice a day. Good luck!
I am 15 year old male. Well i have acne i break out a little by little everyday. So my Acne is not REALLY bad but its not mild either. its in between. I have many scars cuz i picked them .So i am willing to try anything that isn’t like proactive or accutane. Just natural stuff. i am going to Walgreen pharmacy can you tell me what i should get? like what cleanser and what not? and like what should i do to get rid of acne/ acne scars?
I have been using Loreal’s Go 360 Clean Deep Facial Cleanser, it’s the green one. I’m not sure if it’s 100% natural, but my acne has reduced so much. Also, if you have oily skin, using a toner with NO ALCOHOL is great to zap excess oil, I recommend Neutrogena. ALWAYS use a moisturizer with SPF, Olay has nice moisturizers. Make sure its oil free and has SPF.
It may seem like a lot to do, but just do it when you wake up and before you go to bed, it only takes 2 or 3 minutes.
For acne scars I would recommend making your own mask, this one is for acne and scars, I have been using it for about 2 weeks, and the results are amazing.
This woman has a lot of other masks, and I would recommend those for any problems you have with your skin. ^_^
Do you know any natural ways to get rid of acne? or anything for dry skin?
Masks i can do?
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.
