Thomas asks…

How to get rid of acne scars fast?!?

I Had Acne In The Past And I Didn’t Know That If You Pop Em They’ll Turn Into Scars. I Have Few Acne Now. But A Hole Bunch Of Acne Scars On My Forehead. Like One Or Two On My Cheek. I What Em To Go Away Before School Starts. Any Home Remedies Or Anything That Can Help?!?!

admin answers:

Do an Answers search and many say that creams did nothing to get rid of them. You can quickly fade them with this simple, safe, natural treatment that has helped many on Answers (see happy testimonials below ### )

I had pronounced scars from childhood accidents, acne scars, dark marks and a mass of freckles and this treatment got completely rid of them.
To avoid skin pulling/stretching make tighten skin by partially opening mouth and pulling lips firmly back against teeth then massage them over and over many times vigorously using extra virgin olive oil or coconut. They are noncomedogenic – so do not clog or cause breakouts. Or make skin oily.
USING BOTH HANDS AT SAME TIME do forward and back massage using front and tips of fingers and palms (where you can). Circular massage will not work.
The massaging friction rubs them away and forces a clear new skin to appear.

For best/quickest results gradually build up to a daily 20 to 30 min massage (skin and hands have to first adjust). Can be in two or more sessions. You should get results in about 7 to 14 days – depending on how frequently/how long you massage.

From: Shaboo
Message: ” Hello Mukunda, i just wanted to drop you a line to say a big thank you. Your massage method works brilliantly .I have one question, you know once my skin is all nice and spot and scar free should i stop the massaging? …”

Jasmin had contacted me about removal of acne scars and dark marks.
“My advice? LISTEN TO MUKUNDA M!!! He knows what he’s talking about. I directly emailed him because he’s gotten so many Best Answers for skincare topics. I’ve been doing the oil/massage treatment for a little more than 3 weeks and I can’t tell you how absolutely fantastic the results are. Seriously. You will not be disappointed”

From: vwy_young (she had long lasting pronounced skin pigmentation)
Subject: Update on massage(5 weeks)
Message: Hi Mukunda,
I massage each time 15 to 20 mins. The smaller patches of pigmentation (more like freckles) are gone but the bigger ones are still there but they are somewhat lighter in color.

Acne Treatments That Work Fast

Mandy asks…

Fast, effective acne treatment?

Any product that clears up acne fast and safely with no severe side effects (excluding pills, just topical treatments)?

admin answers:

Stress can affect hormones and can theoretically promote acne.
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
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) Toothpaste is very effective for acne leave on face for about 20 to 30 minutes then wash.
10) Zinc really works on acne
11) 2% Erythromycin
12) Benzoin Peroxide
13) Neem oil- good for acne, psoriasis, eczema, skin ulcers (taken either orally or externally)
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.

This is something I use every day and I got rid of my cystic acne. 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 Lucy Vitamin or in health food stores. It is the same price as some of the acne medications, either prescribe or over-the-counter.

Lisa asks…

fast acne treatment???

i have a very important school dance in less then a week and yesterday my face started breaking out!!!! please help! i need the fastest way you know. thanks

admin answers:

First of all, no one has flawless skin. Some people have it better than others, but thats just genes and stuff. Go to www.freewebs .com/reelbeauty11 for skin and beauty tips. I know its for young girls, but it works for anyone!

I know some people who have tried ProActive and it worked, but I also know some others who have tried it and it made it worse :( I know some who have put rubbing alchol on their skin or peroxcide to dry up the pimples. It also kills bacteria :) . Also, try going to a dermotoligist, or ask your regular doctor. Often times the regular doctor, who knows more about your med. History and whatnot can help you more than a dermatologist.

Are you a vegetarian? That might have something to do with it. Its worth checking into.

Try dabbing toothpaste or honey on your zits before you go to bed – works wonders.

Overall, remember that beauty counts more on the inside than on the outside, and your true friends will love you for you, and not your skin.

Oh, and try a different kind of foundation, if you wear it. Try to use a kind with lots of water in it. It looks great and doesn’t clog pores half as bad. And check your habits – do you prop your chin up a lot with your hands? That might cause the acne as well. Look for the cause, as well as the cure.

Sandra asks…

Acne treatment…….?

I have been using benzoyl peroxide 3 times a day to treat my acne. It works fine but recently someone told me that washing your face with raw honey is better than using benzoyl peroxide. To me, this seems like homeopathic bullshit but I’ve been wrong before.

I’m just wondering if I should just continue using benzoyl peroxide 3 times a day or if I should start using raw honey 3 times a day?

admin answers:

There are many ways to cure acne. You have to experiment to find what is best for you. Everyone is different, so don’t give up!

You can’t go wrong with washing your face… Of course, this doesn’t always help those severe cases.

The BEST treatment is prevention! My answer is already pretty long, so here is a good link(:

http://m.wikihow.com/Avoid-Acne

I always wash my pillow cases every week or so. It really helps!

I recommend a good, non-comedogenic facewash, so it won’t cause any other breakouts. I prefer CeraVe, but there are many other options! Look around at your local pharmacy.

Avoid putting things on your face with a scent, such as hand lotion. It wil most likely cause more breakouts. Again, use non-comedogenic products.

Wash your face twice a day, with the hottest water you can stand. Hot water will open those pores for a much more thorough clean. Rinse with cold water to close those pores back aswell!

Now when you are buying face wash.. You will notice there are two main active ingredients to treat acne.
- Salicylic Acid
- Benzoyl Peroxide

Both are very effective treatments. When used together they can be even better. Just make sure to keep your skin moisturized, they will dry your face quickly.

Salicylic Acid – Works by causing the cells of the epidermis to shed properly. This prevents pores from being clogged. The acid is also known to break down black heads as well as whiteheads. It also allows your skin to absorb more benzoyl peroxide.

Benzoyl Peroxide – Removes dead skins cells and fights bacteria. When used correctly, it can also reduce redness. Probably the most effective by far.

Here are some other options if you want to experiment with at-home methods…

Http://m.wikihow.com/Make-Your-Own-Acne-Treatment

Some research suggests vitamins such as A and all of the B Vitamins help with acne. Here’s the link for that.. Http://goo.gl/rnCk1

Like I said before, everyone is different, so give everything a try! Here is a wiki article, for extra info!

Http://m.wikihow.com/Get-Rid-of-Acne

Rubbing Alcohol… Will fight bacteria that cause acne. But alcohol will deffinatly dry that face fast, and potentially cause redness.
* This can actually make acne worse if you dry out your skin… Use in moderation and moisturize often.

A healthy diet is also very helpful.. But come on, we all know that isn’t easy. Especially when you’re a kid and your parents call the shots on the food! Here’s a link for tips on dieting to improve skin. Http://www.m.webmd.com/skin-problems-and-treatments/features/diet-and-skin

Another treatment.. Baking Soda! No way? Yes way. And most house holds have some.
* Make a paste by mixing some baking soda with a little water. Rub it onto your face in circular motions. If you have a specific bad area, you can use a little more there. Apply a few times a day, wash it off and reapply.
* This will expholiate, which is good for getting a deeper cleaning. * Treats your acne by neautralizing, because you have acidity and bacteria.
* It also will get rid of those aweful red shaving bumps!
* In my experience this works very well, but it feels weird..

** You MUST moisturize! Use a non-comedogenic moisturizer! *

Moisturizing is VERY important for a healthy face. It will prevent a lot of dryness. When you get dryness and cracks in the skin, you are just asking for more acne.

* If you don’t moisturize, your face will become oily, making you want to touch and wipe your face, spreading bacteria and other crap into those pore! Plus oil is more likely to attract dirt and dust.

Finally, NEVER touch your face. It’s probably the worse thing you can do. Besides popping your pimples… If you pop them, it will make them spread, or even get infected. I don’t advise popping them… But if you really must… Do it the right way! Here is a wiki article.. Http://m.wikihow.com/Pop-a-Pimple

Remember not to be discouraged. Everyone gets acne. It’s normal. You just have to experiment to find out how YOU can control yours. Good luck :)

Get Rid Of Acne Fast At Home

Jenny asks…

Get rid of acne fast?

I have acne on my forehead and both cheekks. I have kinda oily skin, But they are just small, really tiny bumps everywhere. They don’t go away!!! I want to start off with sections of my face to clear up. I wanna start with my forehead then work down to my cheeks. Does anyone know how to get rid of acne, that actually worked great for you. I also need to know how to get rid of acne scars fast because that is mainly what you can see on my fave. It is so annoying and it makes me embarassed

admin answers:

I used home remedies with my acne. I started taking zinc for my acne and I have no more acne. Here are other 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
6) Toothpaste is very effective for acne leave on face for about 20 to 30 minutes then wash.

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, and occasional breakouts. This is 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.

Retinoid
Nightly to prevent breakouts.
How they work: Retinoid, 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 retinoid 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: Retinoid 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. “It’s 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.http://www.realsimple.com/beauty-fashion/skincare/face/ways-to-treat-acne-00000000038296/page9.html

Robert asks…

how to get rid of acne fast?

Heyy! im 13 (and a girl) so obviously im getting acne but its really bad because i do a lot of sports… but i start school in 2 and a half weeks and i need to get rid of most of it(: Are there any home remedies you can think of? I use Clearasil scrub and cleanser daily and i try to avoid touching my skin! Thanks<3

admin answers:

If you do sports you need to wash your face as soon as possible afterwards because sweat brings toxins out and lays them on top of you skin. You need to wash those toxins off. Clearasil is a good brand. If you want to get rid of big whiteheads, try putting toothpaste on the spot. Toothpaste sucks the moisture out. Just put it on for 10 minutes maximum. If it starts to feel uncomfortable, wash it off right away. Be careful not to dry out your skin too much though because once you get rid of the acne and have red spots left behind you need moisture to heal your skin all the way. Try a moderate moisturizer after washing your face if your skin starts to get dried out, but be careful not to make you skin too oily or it’ll cause more acne. It’s all about balance. :) Also, try scrubbing your face with some green tea. Just take some green tea out of a tea bag and gently scrub your face with it and some warm water. Peroxide can also get rid of whiteheads and redness but be careful because it can bleach cloths. Try applying peroxide with a q-tip to the spot. Also if you have dead skin on a pimple from picking at it (which is bad so it’s good you’re avoiding touching your skin) the peroxide will turn it white. It only turns the dead skin white though so if you don’t pick at it you’re fine to use it. Lastly, lemon juice can be good to dab on your pimples and then wash off but BE VERY CAREFUL WITH THAT. ONLY DO THAT TO YOUR WORST PIMPLES AND BE CAREFUL. I once dried out my skin too much with lemon juice. I hope I helped! Oh, and any face wash with salicylic acid is good, I believe most Clearasil washes have that.

Ruth asks…

How to Get Rid of Acne Fast?

I have alot of acne now a days and I use a hot face cloth every night, it still dosent work. Any ideas for FAST relief with acne? Thanks A BUNCH! xoxo

admin answers:

Stop using the hot face cloth, for a start. This could just be irritating your skin and making the spots worse. One thing I learned about my skin when I was all spotty was to stay away from saunas as the steam just killed my skin. No help whatsoever.
There’s no overnight cure, I’m afraid. Keep your skin clean – but don’t over cleanse it, as you’ll be stripping away the natural oils needed to protect the skin. Keep your hair off your face when you can – I started at home, using a hair band when none of my friends were around. This will stop dirt and oil transferring from your hair to your fore-head and will help to start clearing your forehead. Don’t keep touching your skin, as much as you want to because you’re self-conscious and want to hide behind your hand. All you’re doing is transferring dirt from your fingers onto your skin, which will encoursge more spots.
If you have a particularly bad spot I would put a dab of toothpaste on it overnight. This usually helps reduce redness and swelling – it might not get rid of it completely.
If you haven’t been to your doctor yet, then I suggest you go and start trying some of the antibiotics available for acne. There are a few out there but it might be trial and error to find one that works for you. Be careful of using over the counter creams/lotions containing Benzoyl Peroxide (at 10%). This stuff will burn like hell, especially if you have sensitive skin. There’s also a contraceptive pill called Diannette, which is highly effective at clearing up acne – it can even be prescribed for males.
If you’ve had spotty skin for a really long time, your doctor might consider a course of Ro-Accutane. This is extreme but damn effective.
You really need to go see your doctor and get on a course of treatment.

Treatments For Acne Rosacea

William asks…

What is the best acne rosacea treatment?

(natural organic approach preferred)

admin answers:

Acne rosacea is different for every person. You first have to be diagnosed, then find your “triggers”. These are foods or other substances that make your acne inflame. The process can be time consuming and difficult, but once you find your triggers, its just a matter of avoiding them. Common triggers are stress, alcohol, caffeine, tree nuts, citrus, excessive sunlight, harsh cleansers, perfumes.

Good luck and hurry, untreated rosacea gets worse as you get older. I should know, I have rosacea.

Jenny asks…

What is the most effective treatment menthod for acne rosacea?

I am seeking treatment for my rosacea/acne. I have light, Celtic skin. My case is moderate and I live near many renown med spas, so I have a lot of options.

So, is blue light therapy, photofacial, microderm or PDT the best treatment option? I have tried oracea and finacea and they help, but I am looking for better results that will last longer.

Please respond only if you are a patient or dermatologist who is familiar with the condition rosacea and the treatment options. Alos, what is a fair price range for treatment? Thanks!

admin answers:

PDL (Pulse Dye Laser) is currently considered by most dermatologists to be the most effective light/laser therapy for rosacea. I have tried PDL, and it is very effective. It can be more effective when used with Levulan/Kerastick. ClearLight/BluLight hasn’t been as extensively studied for rosacea as PDL; it seems to be more promising for acne. Combining BluLight/ClearLight with PDL seems excessive if you only have rosacea without acne.

Microdermabrasion is not effective at all for rosacea. PhotoFacials (IPL) can be effective for rosacea, but PDL seems to be more effective with fewer treatments, based on current studies.

Instead of Oracea, you might also want to try Nicomide, and you might also want to try Plexion wash (especially if your skin is oily). Rosacea responds best to combination therapy.

I would also NOT go to a medical “spa”. Go to a dermatologist’s office and get a consultation FIRST. You may not receive the appropriate setting on the laser for your skin if you go to a medical spa, and thus not receive maximum benefit. Ask who will be performing the treatment. If it is an “aesthetician”, go somewhere else. You want to receive the treatment from the doctor, from a Certified Registered Nurse Practitioner, or an RN or possibly LPN. It’s ok to have hair removal or some procedure like that from an aesthetician — but I wouldn’t trust your face during a procedure that could actually cause permanent discoloration and hyperpigmentation to one. An average treatment should cost $300 to $500, depending on the part of the country where you live, possibly more.

Get Rid Of Acne Scars

Maria asks…

How do I get rid of acne scars?

I have a lot of acne scars on my forehead and it’s really annoying and I would like to get rid of them. I haven’t tried anything before and would like to get some other peoples opinions first. I don’t want to spend a lot of money I just want to buy a cream or something.

admin answers:

Completely getting rid of acne scars takes a long time. Getting rid of scars isn’t very easy.

Squeezing or picking at acne can damage the skin tissue around the acne. This can lead to the scarring that is such a concern for many people.

If the nature of your scars is mild to moderate, then home remedies are sufficient. There are many lotions based on alpha hydroxyl acid and retinol. These lotions are very effective for the treatment of the acne scars. It also depends on the type of your skin. If you have a sensitive skin type, it will be better not to use lotions based on the above ingredients. They can harm sensitive skin. There is a specific range of medications to treat people who can not undergo retinol and alpha acid treatments. The most effective among them are lavender oil, aloe vera juice and rosehip seed oil. They can heal scars without harming the skin in the long run.

I suggest trying aloe vera juice and putting that on your face at night where the scars are.

Exfoliate your skin with baking soda. Often times a version of baking soda is used in cosmetic microdermabrasion treatments. You can give yourself a mini microdermabrasion treatment by mixing one teaspoon of baking soda with the two teaspoons of filtered water. Then gently rub the mixture on your acne scar for sixty seconds then rinse it off.

Also, try lemon juice.
To use the lemon juice treatment to remove your acne scar you will need to first wash your face with warm water. Then pour some lemon juice on a cotton ball, and then gently rub the effected acne mark area. For best results leave the lemon juice on your face for about 10 minutes and then dry the affected acne scar area.

To start seeing results with the lemon juice it can take anywhere from one day and even up to three months. Results will vary depending on the seriousness of the acne problem.

Another big factor in reducing or getting rid of acne scars is that you will also need to watch the kind of oils you are putting into your body. Some oils that you use is just screaming acne come and get me!

One of the most common forms of vegetable oil is the sunflower oil. It is highly recommended that if you are using such oils in your cooking then you should consider stop using them to cook as it will only increase the risk of more acne break outs.

By avoiding the use of vegetable oils in your cooking, it has been reported that it can be one of the leading factors in clearing up your acne by 50%. Even in sever cases it has been said that that people who stopped using such vegetable oils, have been completely relieved of any future acne outbreaks.

Ready to hear this? Believe it or not by drinking more than the recommended 8 glasses of water daily will immediately begin to see results with getting rid of your acne scars. If you are a severe acne suffer you should stay away from carbonated drinks, and caffeine drinks such as coffee, and sodas.

admin answers:

The 6 Secrets of How to Get Rid of Acne Scars…

1. Lemon Juice Facial. Simply take a cotton ball, dab it with some lemon juice, then start massaging your acne scars thoroughly. The acidity will soften the skin and reduce the appearance of the scars. Let it stay on for about 20 minutes and then wash it away with warm water.

2. Tomato Face Mask. Yet another simple home acne remedy that can help to get rid of acne scars. Simply take a tomato, slice it in two, and then start rubbing your scars with one of the halves. This has a 2 prong effect, which is to lighten the scars and increase skin elasticity. Wash it away after 20 minutes.

3. Egg Whites. Use a cotton ball to massage egg white into your skin. The whites of an egg have very powerful healing qualities which can help to heal your scarring and make it significantly less visible.

4. Cucumber Juice. This is a great technique for reducing inflammation and increasing elasticity. Since there is no acidity in cucumber juice, there is no need to wash it off immediately. Leave it on and be sure to repeat this remedy daily.

5. Baking Soda Remedy. An excellent and very popular method for how to get rid of acne scars naturally, as it helps to unclog your pores, it kills acne causing bacteria, and it even helps to exfoliate the skin. Simply combine water and baking soda and mix it thoroughly into a paste. Apply this mixture to your acne scars and let it sit for about 2 to 3 minutes, then rinse and wash your skin well. Use this technique twice daily.

6. The Honey Rub. An excellent way to smooth out the skin and clean your pores. Use warm-hot water to clean your face, then quickly pat the skin dry. This will open up the pores and allow the honey to get in there. Apply the honey liberally to the areas affected by acne scars AND all around these areas too.

Wait for about 20 minutes, then wash your face again with warm-hot water. Dry your face for a second time and then rub an ice cube all over your skin, thereby closing the pores. This technique, like any other, won’t completely get rid of acne scars all on it’s own, but it will greatly help if you include it in your routine.

Thanks to the natural anti-oxidant quality of both of these ingredients these can be used in the same mixture to create the secret weapon against pimples. The Yogurt and Honey mask is perfect for all skin types and will help you protect your skin from any traumas. Mix 1 teaspoon of honey (you should melt a bit in the microwave until it reaches a fine texture) with 1 tablespoon of yogurt into a medium sized bowl. Prepare a soothing paste then apply it to your skin, make sure you leave out the area around the eyes which is extremely sensitive. Leave the mask on for at least 15 minutes then use a wet cloth or tepid water to remove it from your skin.

Oatmeal is indeed one of the healthiest ingredients we should also include in our diet. If it’s good for our organism it must do miracles also with our skin. Thanks to the several anti-oxidants it contains the skin will be able to eliminate all the harmful substances from the pores and keep our complexion acne-proof.
Blend a little amount of oatmeal and place it onto your face or body. Leave it on for at least 10-15 minutes, then rinse it off with pure water. Repeat the ritual as often as you feel like.

These two ingredients are used even by specialists who work with green and more eco-friendly methods to treat some of the most severe symptoms of acne. Therefore make sure you also experiment with the honey and apple mask which can do magic with your worn-out and affected complexion.
Grate the apple and mix it with 4 tablespoons of honey. Create a fine paste and apply it over your pure and cleansed skin. Leave 10 minutes for the facial to exercise its fab effect. Then wash the paste of with tepid water. Those who struggle with acne due to their oily complexion will enjoy the soothing effect of this treatment even more.

The egg yolk is rich in one of the essential vitamins to handle pimples, namely Vitamin A. Therefore it is highly recommended to try our hand at this natural facial that can rival the beneficial effect of the latest cosmetic formulas. Whip the yolk of an egg and apply it to your face. Make sure you eliminated any traces of cosmetics and dirt from your skin before you use this facial. This wrap would need at least 20 minutes to have the desire effect therefore leave it on for the earlier mentioned period then wash it off with cold water.

Pimples, Zits and Acne. Just is no fun and can be embarrassing.
Hopefully, this will provide some insight and tips.

External Acne Care: The Pros and Cons of Washing Your Face

Acne is basically an internal condition triggered by several underlying factors. However, there are additional external acne symptoms that may enhance the formation of acne or interfere with the healing process of your existing acne on the external level (e.g. The external acne environment). Without handling these external triggers, it will be very difficult for anyone to overcome their acne challenge, especially when the holistic treatment is performed while the individual still suffers from “live” and “evolving” acne.

Clogged or very large pores, oily or very dry complexion and bad skin hygiene do not cause acne but they interfere with the healing process of the skin and make your external acne environment more prone or “susceptible” to acne.

Taking care of your skin on a daily basis by incorporating simple and easy to follow protocols may not only enhance the healing process of your existing acne it will also balance your skin ph levels, making it smooth, even toned, radiant and healthy looking.

Although there are many types of cleansers available for different purposes (exfoliation, clean, medicate), washing your face twice a day using a gentle antiseptic and anti-bacterial 100% natural soap like tea tree oil soap, or Cetaphil soap can help reduce inflammation, swelling and redness and significantly improve the overall appearance of your skin without the irritation, allergy reactions and over-dryness that over the counters like Benzoyl Peroxide can cause.

Washing your face should always come after a good 5 minutes steaming routine. After the steaming, follow these 3 easy steps:

1. Use lukewarm water to get the soap wet.

2. Apply the soap to your face using your fingertips in a circular motion.

3. Wash your face gently and pat your skin dry using a cotton towel.

If your sebaceous glands are producing too much oil (due to hormonal imbalance that should be fixed internally), then you probable have excessively oily skin and large pores. To tackle that problem externally, do not use alcohol and water astrigent, instead use soap like Neutrogena clear pore oil Controlling astrigent or even better apply an all natural mask made of bentonitre or egg whites.

An extremely dry skin can also be treated internally through balancing oil secretion protocols and dietary changes and supplementation, including the regular intake of 10 glasses of pure water on a daily basis. As for the external care, applying lots of good quality moisturizer such as 99% Aloe Vera gel while avoiding harsh and un-natural external care products; can significantly reduce your dryness.

Warning: Excessive washing of the face can cause mild to moderate irritations and increase redness and inflammation, defeating its own purpose.

If you have sensitive skin, the best practice is to test each product prior to using it, using dollar size amount on your chin, regardless of its quality or the nature of its ingredients.

James asks…

what’s the best product to use to get rid of oily skin?

my face gets all oily and shiny all the time, causing me to break out in pimples. i used so many acne products that have been advertised especially if it says “for normal to oily skin” it doesnt work! does anyone know any homemade remedies or products i could use? and please don’t say proactive, because i dont want to bother ordering over the phone.

plz and thx!

admin answers:

Hi,

For years i dreaded going out, meeting people or any event where i would have to show my face. My complexion was never even close to being clear. My doctor put me on a few prescriptions including the so-called best acne treatment, but i never found anything that worked without having side effects. Needless to say most of these so called cures either made our skin condition and our acne worse and filled us with heart breaking disappointment and frustration or they worked only short term, and acne came back with a vengeance. Some of these treatments simply didn’t have any effect what so ever on my skin condition.

Drugs, creams and typical acne treatments sometimes work in a partial way but the results are temporary and the side effects are nasty. The tiny handful acne sufferers who have learned how to clear their acne from within and without ever using drugs or over the counters are the only people in the world who keep their skin clear permanently. In 3 weeks, my face were acne free. I told my family and friends about it and they were amazed with the results.

Herbs have proven to be a more natural, gentle alternative for the treatment of acne rather than the harsh, synthetic chemicals used in over-the-counter products and conventional medications. Not only are herbal remedies safe and effective to use, they also support the skin, immune and digestive systems.

By addressing skin health at a cellular level via underlying tissue and sebaceous glands of the skin, MediAc improves problem skin without troublesome side effects, promoting skin health and renewal. It also improves the appearance of bumps and flaky, irritated skin temporarily.

MediAc is taken internally, and stimulates the natural healing forces of the body from within to address and prevent acne and blackheads as a natural acne remedy. Presented in small dissolvable tablets, MediAc Relief is easy to ingest and hassle-free with no artificial colors or preservatives, and no side effects.

All the homeopathic products and biochemic tissue salts are manufactured in an FDA and GMP registered pharmaceutical facility under the supervision of qualified homeopaths and responsible pharmacists. Individual ingredients are listed in the Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia of the United States (HPUS). I’ve used MediAc and it works for me.

Get Rid Of Acne Fast Naturally

Chris asks…

how do i get rid of acne on my face fast?

i have tryed washing my face over and over but it doesnt work, when i get real desprate, i try and pop them, but then a scab would come. and that really looks horrible, i dontwear make up and stuff like that. i want to get rid of it naturally

admin answers:

If you want to get rid of acne naturally look up something like ‘natural acne treatments’ on google and HEAPS of useful stuff comes up. Lots of the things are actually items you probably have at home anyway. You can try:
-Lemon juice
-Rubbing a bit of garlic onto the acne
-Toothpaste (doesn’t work for me but lots of people swear by it)

Also drinking lots of water, getting enough sleep and eating lots of fresh fruit and veg can help. You might also want to try cutting down on dairy and meat and taking vitamins (I take ones which are a special combination for acne, found them at the supermarket)

Washing your face twice a day should be fine, and always pat dry. Just don’t touch the zits! Popping them is sooooo bad for your skin unless you get it done by a professional (which hurts like hell).

Good luck!

George asks…

How to get rid of acne fast?

admin answers:

Acne medications are one way to prevent breakouts, but they come with other side effects including dry skin, discoloration, and irritation/sensitivity at the problem area. Besides the numerous side effects chemical treatments have on your skin, they are expensive. Stick with mother nature and save some money at the same time by trying home remedies using natural ingredients to get rid of your acne.

How to Get Rid of Acne Fast

1. Drinking a lot of water can help eliminate and prevent acne because water is very effective in removing harmful toxins in the body. Therefore, you have to make sure to drink at least eight glasses of water daily.

2. Garlic is known to be potent in getting rid of acne fast. To use garlic as acne remedy, massage it onto face several times a day for one week. Regular garlic massage can help clear your pores and protect it from acne-causing bacteria.

3. To get rid of acne naturally, it is recommended to use rosehip seed oil, which is commonly used in many cosmetic products. Rosehip seed oil can get rid of your acne scars. To get the most benefits of rosehip seed oil, massage it on the affected areas for about fifteen minutes, a couple of times a day.

4. Another great suggestion to get rid of acne fast is to maintain a healthy eating habit. Make sure to avoid foods that are high in vegetable oils, sugar and saturated fats. These foods include cakes, cookies, chocolates, pizza, fast food and processed foods. Stick to healthy foods including vegetables, fruits and lean meats such as tuna, chicken breasts and turkey.
