Hi,

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.

MediAc is a safe, non-addictive, FDA-registered natural acne remedy containing 100% homeopathic ingredients selected to temporarily treat symptoms of acne vulgaris including blackheads on the face and body.

Healthy skin is one of the best defences against the formation of embarrassing pimples, pustules, and boils. MediAc helps fight off bacteria that causes pimples and blackheads.

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 Native Remedies 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.

William asks…

How do I clear acne?

Alright, the basics. I know that water helps to clear acne. I drink about a gallon and a half a day. I know pop/soda causes acne. So I don’t drink it.

My skin is pretty clear. I have a pimple here and there, but dude… I want to be perfect. May sound hard, but I do.

I have proactiv, but I can’t use it in the winter because it drys out my skin to much. In the summer my skin is virtually untouchable. It’s clear or at least it looks clear because of my tan.

Anyways, any other tips to get rid of acne? I cleanse 2 times a day… and drink a gallon and a half of water a day. I keep hands away from face and wash my pillow case a lot. What else can I do? Any home remedies?

Note: My skin is good in the summer. In the winter it has a little acne. Do you have worse acne in the winter than you do in the summer? Or is it just me?

Nancy asks…

Does proactiv work on pimples that are caused by stress?

Does it also help fade blemishes?

My pimples are caused by stress (which by the way i can’t avoid). They are red bumps on my skin and they hurt like hell. They also leave blemishes even if i dont touch them. They are only red bumps and there are no white puss on it. So will proactiv work for me?

Get Rid Of Acne Scars Fast

Charles asks…

Can fresh squeezed lemon juice go bad in room temperature?

I will be using lemon juice to get rid of acne scars, and would like to store it in my room. I won’t be adding anything to the fresh squeezed juice. So will it go bad if I do this?
No sugar or anything will go into. Pure 100% lemon juice.

admin answers:

Since you are using it to heal scars, you may only, at the longest leave it out for two days at the most. Also, if you mix honey with it, it will twice as fast and is much better for your skin. I use a sugar, honey, and lemon homemade face wash and scrub everyday.

Nancy asks…

Donald asks…

How can i get rid of acne scars/ redmarks?

Ima 15 year old male and i have a LOt of acne scars on my cheeks i barealy have any pimples but how can i get rid of them people laugh at me at school

admin answers:

OK dear i’ll give you some options

One of the best ones is application of freshly squeezed aloe vera gel. Get fresh leaves and split them to remove the gel, this is your best bet. Make sure you wash your face properly before applying this gel.Aloe is a natural moisturizer and aids in the healing process — people often use it to help heal their sunburn.

You can also employ to use diluted hydrogen peroxide to your scars but remember not to go out in the sun after applying this to your face, or else your dark marks may worsen.

You can also make your own by making a grainy mix of coarsely ground walnuts and yogurt. This can be used to scrub your face about thrice a week.

If you try these methods, expect for weeks to months before it fades or disappear. If you want fast healing, you can try surgical method. This method can be very effective for removing those dark spots, but it can also be expensive and painful. If you’re considering surgery for your acne scars, be sure you scope out all your options before you make your decision.

So now you know how hard to have acne marks, in the future, prevent more acne scars by avoiding picking or scratching at your acne. Don’t pop a zit! You also want to prevent the skin from drying out and scabbing, so that you don’t get any more acne scars. And please drink a lot of water and eat fresh fruits.

if not then most welcome ;d

George asks…

what is the best acne treatment on the market?

what is the best acne treatment on the market that i can buy out of stores?

admin answers:

You have to decide what is best for you as some conventional, majorly marketed products are extremely effective, yet without side effects on some people whereas they are extremely allergic to many due to the harsh chemicals involved.

Mild to moderately severe acne may be treated with over-the-counter gels, lotions, and creams such as benzoyl peroxide which is applied directly to the skin. Oral antibiotics may also be prescribed to reduce inflammation while oral contraceptives have also shown to improve acne.

In episodes where acne is extremely severe, another oral medication known as Isotretinoin (Accutane) is one of the most effective treatments with successful results. However, all these medications can cause negative side effects and it is important that you inform your health practitioner or dermatologist immediately.

It is also important to develop a good skincare routine that involves cleansing your skin in the mornings, evenings and after workouts. By adjusting your lifestyle and incorporating a healthy diet, exercise, drinking lots of water and getting adequate sleep will also help to make a significant difference to your skin’s appearance.

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.

Two carefully selected herbal ingredients such as Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree Oil), Azadirachta indica and Arctium lappa contain antibacterial, anti-fungal and antiseptic properties and are not only effective for acne but for other skin conditions too. Other herbs such as Aspalathus linearis (Rooibos) and Bulbine frutescence have wonderful antioxidant and healing properties and also help to prevent skin infection and provide ongoing relief. In addition, Lavender Essential Oil acts as a circulatory stimulant and antiseptic, and is used to treat burns and wounds and to prevent scarring.

You will get detailed info on these remedies here if you wish http://www.healthherbsandnutrition.com/remedies/a/acne.htm

Good Luck!

Get Rid Of Acne Fast Ice

Jenny asks…

How do you get rid of popped pimples in one night or two ?

I have about 4 pimples that I popped:( now the are bright red and big! I want them gone and I want them gone fast (like in one night or two). I heard about the toothpaste and saltwater and ice remedies, do you know any other ones? Please help!

admin answers:

The best solustion is to stop popping! Pimples will heal on their own and maybe you’re having bad flare-ups because of puberty. Wash your face daily and nightly and the pimples will go over time, try a product that is specified for acne. Back to your main concern, take plain oatmeal and put it in a cloth and tie it shut, put that in a bowl of hot water, once the water is brown and murky take out the fabric with oatmeal and throw it away, splash your face with the liquid to calm redness. Hope this helps! Xo

John asks…

How to get rid of acne FAST!!!?

I have 4 pimples on my cheek, 2 on my chin, and a couple on my forehead. Any home remedies to get rid of this fast.

admin answers:

Ugh acne is a be otch
=/
i had acne VERY badly but now it has subsided due to good skin care. I still get breakouts if i stop taking good care of my face.

Heres my daily facial routine.
Wake up–
1:wash face with a gentle oil free face wash use as warm of water as you can.
2: splash my face with COLD water for 30 seconds to snap my pores shut!
3: apply a very gentle OIL FREE face lotion.
Only use this if you think your skin is drying out to much.
4: then i apply a little bit of make up to cover my red splotches. [note: im a girl]

night time—
1: wash you face with the gentle cleanser
2: use a astringent if you want to
3: Exfoliate your face with granulated sugar and lemon juice.
(the sugar exfoliates and the lemon juice makes you skin soft)

other face care:
1:if you can splash your face with cold water several times a day
2:once a week run crisco and olive oil all over your face and let it soak in… Wash it off so it dont cloge poes. (this makes you skin baby butt soft)
3: eat less oils. E.g. French fries other deep fried foods. Basically dont eat fast food.
4: if you put a towel over your pillow when you sleep this helps… (it soaks up oils in your face instead of smearing them)
5: for the ones you have put ice then for about a minute a piece.–> before bed GOB neosporine on them–>when you wake up ice them some more…
[this is a one day pimple remedy]

hope i helped.
This is what i do and i have good skin now.
I have had acne since 11 and now im 15 =]
acne free for about 6 months.

Linda asks…

How to get rid of pimples fast?

I’ve just had a pimple and it’s going down now but it’s still a bit red. But now i’ve got another pimple coming right next to it and i go back to school tomorrow and i really don’t want it to be bad for tomorrow. Is there any way i can reduce the redness of my pimple or get rid of it by tomorrow. Does sudocrem help? Or shall i use tea tree oil? I’ve also heard that toothpaste clears them up but i’m not sure what to do, i’m also drinking lots of water at the moment, will this help? What do you suggest?

admin answers:

Toothpaste will not help! It’ll promote scarring. I suggest using some ice to reduce the size of it and use a good face wash. Make sure all of your hair is out of your face so no extra oils fall over it. If possible, buy some liquid cover up. There are some that actually help remove acne! I bought mine at target but I don’t remember the brand :/

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.

Hi there,

Here are 6 effective ways that fight acne naturally …

Herbal acne remedies seek to remedy the root cause of acne, which may represent more serious, unrecognized health problems. The truth is, the exact cause of acne remains unknown, often being triggered by a number of factors. Based on the factor that is mostly likely to trigger your acne, the herbal remedy will be applicable.

Factors that may contribute to acne include; imbalanced hormones, poor digestion, slow liver and bowel function and nutritional deficiencies all contribute to acne. Herbal acne treatment usually involves using herbal preparations topically and taking herbs specifically aimed at treating the cause of acne.

Essential Oils have shown great promise as a treatment for a number of skin conditions, particularly acne.

Note: As a rule, they should not be applied in their pure form, as some of these are very potent. You can dilute them or mix them with Grape seed Oil.

1. Lavender Oil
Apply lavender oil directly on the areas of acne or add a couple of drops of lavender oil to a plain cream sold at a drug store and use as a moisturizer or cleanser. In addition to smelling heavenly, lavender is also highly effective in fighting acne. It is effective mainly due to its anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antiseptic properties. 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! It eliminates the bacteria that cause the acne, after which it fixes the balance of the excess secretion of sebum, which the bacteria live on, and reduces the scars and redness left by acne.

2. Tea Tree Oil
Tea tree oil has outstanding antibacterial properties making it an effective treatment for acne, acting quickly. Studies have indicated that this is an effective treatment, with minimal side effects. In addition, it relieves rashes and burns, removes dandruff, and treats warts and other fungal infections.

3. Bergamot Oil
In addition to having this great, citrusy scent, Bergamot Oil proves to be effective in fighting acne. It has outstanding drying properties, keeps excess oil on our face in check, which normally triggers break outs. Bergamot oil has heavy antiseptic and antibiotic therapeutic properties; consequently it is helpful to sort out tricky skin conditions. Bergamot oil can be used in a diversity of methods such as creams, lotions and steam treatments.

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.

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.

Joseph asks…

what is the best on-the-spot or overnight acne treatment?

i don’t have bad acne at all, i just got a pimple once and a while and its really bothersome. i am looking for one of those overnight treatments for acne. i have been looking at reviews and they make no sense, the reviews are so contradicting and some say positive things and some say negative. HELP!

admin answers:

Try a dab of toothpaste applied on the pimple. Not for smearing out onto the whole face !
Good luck.

Ps otherwise try a dab of ti tree oil or lavender oil.
