Ok i have a bad acne problem i am going somewere in a month and am wondering about some easy ways to make acne and old acne scars go away please help i need anwsers real bad 10 points to best awnser thanks
I got into a car accident three years ago and had huge gashes on my face. The doctor prescribed me Mupirocin. I later got a prescription of this from my family doctor to control acne scars. It worked really well. The car accident scar I was sure was for life as bad as it was, and went away in three days. Be careful with putting ointments like this for scaring, because the oil can create new acne, but just put on a layer or two where needed. Try to wipe off any access. Mupirocin is like Neosporoin X 100, of course, as it is prescription. This is just a good ointment to have, because it works superb for all cuts, and whenever neosporin is needed and works so much better and faster.
Now to get rid of the acne, I have a few suggestions that took twenty years to discover, so I want to share. I was just looking in the mirror before bed and said goodness, I want to look up current yahoo answers people who haven’t found a solution yet. SCREW proactive and all the other stuff. I found it made things worse.The best face wash I ever bought was Clean and Clear blackhead clearing scrub. This product is never off the shelves because of how well it works over the years. I’ve used it for the last three years. It exfoliates daily. I use it once in the morning and once at night and when I need a good face wash. It says blackhead wash, but it’s good for the whole face and really gives a good clean. It says see results in two days (and there are) and imagine years of using it with the results! Use it in a counterclockwise and then clockwise manner until you feel you have scrubbed good. Then wash it off! Next, wash with Clean and Clear continuous control. I have oily skin so this doesn’t dry me out, but if you dry easily I wouldn’t recommend this everyday. It’s a medicine wash that works all day and works well. I cannot put dermatologist creams on my face during the day because it leaves a sticky peel and not attractive for the public. This works well instead and I use it once-twice a day. Then I put on the witch hazel after my face is dry. I put on multiple coats of it. It’s just like water, but magic water…for your face! Next, I went to the dermatologist and found a good ointment for my skin. I use it before bed and spot treatments throughout the day when I am BY MYSELF because it is noticeable. Everything I mentioned works for everybody, but your ointment selection might be different based on your skin type. A good ointment for oily skin which I use is tretinoin. I love it. It can burn sometimes, but then wash off immediately. It’s good at drying out and bring acne to a head. Doing this I haven’t had acne in years (breakouts), and I my random pimples have gone from moderate frequency to light frequency. Don’t by any imitators. Equate likes to copy clean and clear, and I fell victim to save like $3 and the savings are NOT worth it.
Another thing, stay away from soda and fastfood. This might be hard, but your diet is a huge cause of acne/pimples. Drink a LOT of water to flush your system and take supplements. Make sure you are eating alfalfa sprouts or getting a good alfalfa supplement. It is an essential. Next, a daily astringent that is a MUST. It will help with acne scars, redness, irritation, shaving burns, and existing/preventing acne. It also tones the skin to give it a beautiful glow. It is WITCH HAZEL. Get the T.N. Dickenson brand and it works wonders. It doesn’t smell bad, doesn’t burn ever, and continues to cleanse the skin. This is also good for getting rid of access makeup that may still be on, or any dirt. The best part is, you can apply all throughout your day I apply like 20 times a day and go through the large bottle every other month. You cannot overuse this product, and it really works. I just learned about witch hazel from a beauty expert and it was the best thing for my face. It controls the pores and replaces all astringents and toners. Also get an immune system supplement. This will help fight acne. Don’t buy acne medications as supplements or from your dermatologist. Also eat lots of fruits and vegetables. You are what you eat and you need to eat right. Alfalfa is good for SO many other things, it balances your digestive system, cleans your blood, provides all the vitamins your body doesn’t naturally produce and it tastes GOOD! It’s like a salad, but it’s packed with so many essentials. I buy this in bulk. It will be worth more than just your face. Research the benefits of alfalfa! As for face cleansers, I know there are a lot of fun products like grapefruit blast etc, but don’t fall for it. It’s not worth it. You should get an exfoliating body wash. THIS you can funk up a bit and get some crazy exfoliant that you love. Don’t over stress about your acne, it WILL go away. Stressing about it will cause more, trust me. I wish you well and HAPPY to spread the clear face! God bless!
How to get rid of little red scars/marks from mole removal, at home?
I’m 13, and a little while ago I tried to remove a few moles at home. I learned that it didn’t work for me very well so I’m going to a dermatologist this Friday to get some other moles removed, with a laser. The thing is, when I tried to remove moles on my own, they left a few odd marks behind. I am hoping to get rid of them by this Friday, and I NEED your help!
These are some pictures of the scars/red marks/bump thing left behind… Is there any way to get rid of it fast? Maybe by this Friday?! If so, thanks everybody who answered!
HOW and what did you used to remove your moles?
NO photos showing!
Adam Lambert has the worst acne scars. JLo, even Demi Moore have been seen with scars on their faces during interviews. Seal, the musician, Heidi Klum’s ex have you seen the scar on his face? Demi in October 2012 issue of ‘People magazine, showed her freckles (acne?) on the cover and inside article photo showed she had them removed but there was a ‘hole’ and no makeup could fill that in. LOL Anyway . . . With all their money they’re making now, even beauty products can’t do anything about their faces or should I say scars.
Avoid too much sun exposure, so it won’t make your scars even DARKER permanently. Skin heals. So let your skin heals.
Sunscreens or lotions does not protect you from nasty, painful burns. Lotions does not protect you from skin cancer. Lotions does not protect you from skin diseases. Lotions does not protect you from discolorations – permanently. And lotions does not protect you from skin tags, freckles, moles, they will only get larger, darker, and bumpier as they are exposed from UV.

I had a pimple that never went away, it was in the same area where Liz’ mole was, I felt blessed! But, it got infected because I picked on it & picked on it when it got bumpy, it had been on my face for 4 years. One year it didn’t get bumpy, so it was flat for one year after that. I picked on it again, and now it’s flat and it’s almost faded – like any acne on our faces!!!! But usually, I even try to darken it with eyebrow pencil. I’ve always have clear complexion, but I noticed when it gets cloudy (summer) I couldn’t protect myself from the heat, so that’s why it got bumpy again. It’s been a year, and they’re now flat and lighter.
I had a mole on my thigh that was throbbing. It was the size of a pencil eraser. Dermatologist told me it wasn’t cancer, but I had it removed (3 stitches) but it got infected. I couldn’t keep water from it when I take a shower and it left me a 1 1/2″ scar, but it was still throbbing. My other dermatologist injected something around it, and it got flatter, but the throbbing stopped. That was 6 years ago, but the throbbing starts again, but the scar is almost gone. I should have left it alone, but the throbbing was annoying me!
Google A Death by Suntan by age 26, Yahoo Shine 3-23-10. In April 2005, while working out at her college gym in Rhode Island, 22-year-old Glenna Kohl detected a hard, golf ball-size lump near her groin. . . . .In high school, Glenna did have an irregular mole removed from her leg. A pathology report identified it as benign, but the surgeon tested it again. The lab had made an error: The mole was an early stage melanoma.
Moles that are the same color as your skin, will become bumpier, not darker, & larger, but they will become as skin tags. Again, don’t try to cut them yourself without having seen by a doctor. I’ve cut mom’s skin tags, all 37 of them, and only 2 of them bled. But, I put a Band-aid, and it was fine several hours later. You can prevent getting skin tags, moles, freckles by avoiding the sun @ least 95% of the day.

Applying lemon juice to the scars helps to lighten them, as the citric acid in the fruit has bleaching properties. Slices of raw potato are said to help as well.
Vitamin E would also work, but if you have sensitive skin you’re more prone to developing blackheads.
You can make a mash created with fresh, plain yogurt and about half of a teaspoon of lemon juice. Leave on for 15 minutes then rinse with warm water.
Drinks and foods that have high amounts of antioxidants and vitamin E will also helps.
Drinks: Acai tea, juice, green tea. Adding lemon to the drinks helps your body to absorb them better. The digestive system burns off about 80% of the antioxidants that you intake, but the lemon juice helps combat that.
Foods: Leafy green vegetables, almonds, pecans, fresh berries, apples, cooked artichokes, pinto and kidney beans help to protect your skin and promote a more even skin tone.
***Tip: Try to avoid foods with refined sugar that can increase skin inflammation.
Baking soda helps reduce old acne scars as well. You can use it as a scrub or a toner.
Toner: 1 cup of water to 1 teaspoon of baking soda. Apply the mixture to face after it has been freshly washed.
Scrub: 1 tablespoon of water to 1 teaspoon of baking soda. Mix together then rub onto face with gentle, circular motions for 30 seconds then rinse well with warm water.
Tea tree oil works well, too, as it is both antimicrobial and anti fungal. You can purchase little vials of the oil at health food stores that are most likely undiluted. Before applying to your skin, dilute it. 1 teaspoon of of water to 2 drops of undiluted tea tree oil. Apply to affected areas up to three times a day.
Calamine lotion reduces inflammation and reduces the redness and appearance of the scars.
Other oils: Lavender, olive, camellia, coconut.
Honey helps to lighten scars as well as prevent and reduce any existing and forming acne.
A mixture of sandalwood powder with lemon juice works. Blend together until they make a paste.
Aloe vera gel helps, too, as it helps the scar to heal faster.
Keeping your skin clean and hydrated will help.
Staying out of the sun will also help the marks to fade.
Rose water helps to soothe inflammation of the skin and reduce the appearance of the marks. Witch hazel also soothes the skin.
I hope that this helped and good luck. Feel free to e-mail me with any other questions that you might have. I’d be more than happy to answer them for you. ItsMeJaylah@yahoo.com Cheers!

I’m meeting with my dermatologist to discuss going on acne treatment. The problem is, I’m going to be with my mom, who I haven’t told I was having sex yet. I need to be put on something that won’t interfere with the effectiveness of my birth control. Anyone know of one that actually works? I’m looking for an oral treatment since creams and gels don’t work for me and only dry out my skin.
I’m ON birth control, and it didn’t help.
I’ve been in that situation and there is really nothing you can do about it. There are things you can do to try to reduce the blemishes and get rid of acne/pimples temporarily but you will always be finding yourself cleaning your face or your body depending on where it’s at.
I mean of course your acne should go away eventually but for some this is the case their whole life.
I’m 29 years old and have been suffering from these little pests since I was a teenager. I tried all sorts of face washes from the local grocery store and what not, but nothing seemed to work. If anything it would just make my skin dry and itchy.
Literally the best acne face wash I’ve ever used has been this stuff called clearpores. It has got rid of the acne to quickest and has been a success ever since I got it. It’s unique cause of it’s herbal supplement you take a long with it that helps your skin from the inside out. I saved money on it at skincleansingsystem.com at the time which was helpful.
You should really look into this stuff and if you can to assure the best results, get the 3 month supply because if it doesn’t work it will still save you butt on the return policy.
Well good luck and best wishes.
I found a website that has home remedie acne treatments and I figured when I have a lot of time I can make a little bit of each one and bottle and lable them. woudl it make them less effective from sitting on a shelf in a bottle?
I think it would probably make them less effective depends on the ingredients. What are they and What is the site? Maybe you could refrigerate them. I don’t know I’d have to know what ingredients
I am currently doing an acne treatment like the proacte 3 step stem but it’s leaving my face all dry. I was wondering if it would be bad to exfoliate my face with sugar, honey, and lemon all mixed together?
The reason it’s drying is because of the benzoyl peroxide. Here is what you can do to mitigate the dryness:
1) Apply a thin layer of lightweight moisturizer underneath the benzoyl peroxide.
2) OR mix 1 part benzoyl peroxide with 1 part lightweight moisturizer.
If you really want to do that mask, you can, but it won’t really relieve the dryness once you wash it all off. Mask is really for pampering purposes. Test the mask on a small section of skin to see if you are allergic to it. If not, then go for it. Just be careful, lemon is known to irritate.

If I were to use the Clean and Clear Spot Treatment Gel, should I use a regular cleanser like Cetaphil or Biore? Or should I use an acne cleanser like Neutrogena Oil Free Acne Wash in Pink Grapefruit. I don’t have serious acne, just pimples here and there.
I would use a acne wash for increased effect, but a non drying one since you don’t have severe acne. I’m not a great fan of Clean and Clear, Kiss my Face botanical acne gel is so nice a cooling 18.99$. Use a gentle acne wash like desert essence face wash, alba acne dote face wash and My chelle teen acne. Neutrogena is nice but it’s for more severe cases. If you keep on using it use a moisturizer before you apply the spot treatment. Maybe an oil controlling moisturizer like aubrey moisturizer for oily skin.
Since 5th grade my face started to break out in a bunch of pimples. Some big some small some red some black, and there all left a black mark after its gone. When I use acne treatments my skin dry out or break out or bleed. Recent dark marks are fading but old ones are still there.
First of all there is big difference between acne and acne scar products!
If you are using good acne treatment product you will never need acne scar product.
So if you need really good acne product I recommend Exposed acne treatment, because it clears acne form inside out and you wil not need any facial cream to make your skin natural and smooth. In this acne treatment kit is included everything you need to make your skin look perfect!
Hope this helps a bit!
I’ve got so many spots from my acne. My face is now clear but I want to get rid of the spots!!!!! I want 2 try products before I go to the dermatologist. Any suggestions that have worked for u?
I think you should use the skin brightening product.

What would happen if I was to use hydrogen peroxide on my face to get rid of acne? I’ve tried different treatments and stuff but none of them seems to help.
Apply orange peel paste on and around the pimples.
Apply garlic on and around the pimples to remove it without a mark.
Zinc, Vitamin A, Vitamin B and Vitamin E are the best nutrients to cure the acne. So take a balanced diet full of nutrients and vitamins.
Mix lime juice and rose water in equal proportion. Apply it on affected areas and allow it to dry for 10 minutes.
Even after the treatment, acne leaves scars. Excellent home remedies to remove acne scars are listed here. Follow these tips to get rid of the acne scars.
Rub ice cubes on face for 10 minutes to tighten the pores.
Cucumber juice can also be used to tighten the pores. Apply it and allow it to dry for 10 minute
I know of salmon and blueberries and green tea and good amounts of fiber.Also i avoid milk and cheese. If you got rid of acne through diet how long did it take and what did you eat alot of. any advice I cant stand how bad my acne got. Im use to one or two pimples every now and then but now it is way more. and i have red spots everywhere there was acne. even where pimples never where. im using retin-a and proactive but my face is so red and still getting new pimples!
Fresh fruit, vegetables, nuts and seeds
Increase the variety of fresh fruit, vegetables, nuts and seeds in your diet.
Drink plenty of water every day. Aim to drink at least two litres of still mineral water. If the skin becomes dehydrated, dead skin cells are not effectively shed, which can lead to blocked pores and further acne.
3. Probiotics and prebiotics
Antibiotics destroy the bacteria in your digestive system, which can lead to poor digestion, constipation and reduced absorption of essential vitamins, minerals and nutrients — all of which can lead to more acne because your body isn’t able to get rid of waste effectively and toxins get expelled via the skin instead. If you have been taking antibiotics for your acne, it’s vital you replace the “friendly” bacteria in your digestive system with a good quality probiotic, such as Nature’s Biotics.
Prebiotics are foods which help re-establish the good bacteria in the gut — these include honey, onions, artichokes and bananas. Taking a probiotic supplement and eating prebiotics foods will help restore the levels of beneficial bacteria that are destroyed by antibiotics.
4. Supplements & superfoods
Vitamins, vitamins. Good luck.
I want something that is less expensive, works really good at getting rid of acne. I am african american and my skin is oily and thats how my acne starts. I want something that really works and is not expensive.
Better than proactiv? Then, better check the review of the best acne treatment products in the market done by http://cureacnezone.com/acne-treatment/best-acne-treatment-products . Proactiv ranked 4th in that list. Clearpores and acnezine, which ranked 1st and 2nd respectively, are less expensive than proactiv.

I recommend You moisturize your skin with organic unrefined extra virgin coconut oil. I know you might be like, is she crazy telling me to put OIL on my face? NO i am not crazy:) All of my Friends use coconut oil for their body, hair, health and skin. And their skin and mine is very healthy. Coconut oil even helped one of my Friend who suffered acne for about 1 year. She started using coconut oil everyday as a moisturizer, and now she has clear skin! She still had to use a cleanser, and eat healthy and stuff. But COCONUT oil helps the body, skin and hair in SO many ways!
I found out coconut oil is a very effective way to treat acne. I use the organic USDA, unrefined, and extra virgin coconut oil. And it smells sooo good!!! It does not clog pores, well it does not to me. It give you a natural glow, cure redness, acne, acne scar, dryness, wrinkle, fine lines, oiliness, and any skin condition like rash! It 10 times as better than other acne treatments! Coconut oil is a very great natural way to cure acne. Use it as your facial moisturizer.

but i want to get rid of the bumps as well…
do you know some home remedies i could do or anything that doesnt cost money
any advice will help
thank you so much
I used to have a lot of pimples. Just put tooth paste on your pimples before you go to bed, they should dry up in about a night or two. Don’t use tooth paste with whitening though, don’t know why but heard it’s bad. When your pimples completely dried up, put palmer’s cocoa butter on them to get rid of pimple scars. It should take a few days for them to disappear. To make sure that you don’t get big pimples again wash your face with PURPOSE cleansing bar at morning and night. The cleansing bar only cost about $3. After you wash your face, lightly tap your face with your towel, don’t scrub your face with the towel. Just make sure you don’t touch your face or put anything up against it and wash your pillow case every week. I know this is a lot to do but hey now I have a clear face. Good luck!
I have semi-severe acne and it is extremely stubborn. I’m looking for an easy at home treatment that may help me to clear it up.
Toothpaste helps a lot. Just dab it on every day before sleeping.
Also, try using Cetaphil cleaner, it’s very gentle and will prevent future acne. Use a deep cleaner to clean your skin, then moisturize
I’ve had acne since the 5th grade and I’m currently in 9th. My acne is pretty much almost gone, but the problem is… The acne left marks? I didn’t leave like pits cars just red circles that looks like pimples but they’re not, when I touch them it feels like smooth skin! I don’t know how to get rid of these redness marks from my acne… Is there a treatment or home remedy that works to get rid of the old marks?
Niacinamide face cleansing pads are an effective and simple way to keep acne away. Just place a pad on the pimple and watch it fade away. Lavender Oil helps prevent skin drying. Niacinamide also helps diminish skin-hyperpigmentation (acne scars)
Niacinamide pads are also known as Vitamin B3 pads or Nicotinamide pads. Works on body acne too.
Give them a try and you will be pleasantly surprised.

I’m a teenager with mild acne and rosacea. How can I properly care for my skin to keep it healthy and treat the acne/rosacea? What does your skin care regimen consist of? I have extremely delicate skin and cannot tolerate harsh products
Well I would suggest that if you wear makeup always choose makeup that is oil-free. Make sure that you wash your face really well after you are done wearing it. You also want to find some good skin care products to help with acne. I would recommend checking out the mark skincare line. They have a product called “get clearance” its an anti-acne blemish treatment. You can visit the website www.mymarkstore.com/talexander and take the skin care quiz to find out what products would best suit your needs.

****REMEMBER:HOME REMEDIES IM ONLY 13****
Stress can affect hormones and can theoretically promote acne. I try to do natural home remedies but here are some helpful tips that might be helpful for acne and scar:
1) Tea Tree Oil
2) Lemon oil or juice
3) Mandarin oil
4) Cedar wood – good for eczema
6) Apple cider vinegar
7) Bamboo extract or Sarna lotion – good for rosacea, psoriasis, eczema 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
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 other methods to clear up blemishes.
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.
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.
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.
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.
