Treatments For Acne On Face

Joseph asks…

What is the best acne treatment for teens?

I have mild acne but my current face wash, which I’ve been using up until now with good results, is no longer working. What is the best daily face wash/treatment?

admin answers:

For me, those face wash things never worked but i found something really simple that worked for me, and i love it cuz its completely cheap and easy and quick. I totttttally swear by it! Here’s what you do:

1. Fill up your sink with steaming hot water
2. Put your face over the bowl of the sink and put a towel over your head, allowing you to steam your face without the steam escaping. This opens your clogged pores.
3. Stay like this for 3-5 minutes, then drain the sink and wash your face with your regular cleanser and warm water.
4. Finish with a splash of cold water to close your pores
5. Finally, apply any spot treatment you might have such as clearisil to any blemishes


i know it looks like a lot, but its cheap and it honestly works. Plus you don’t have to buy anything so there’s nothing to lose by trying it. It usually takes about a day after doing this for your zits to start going away. I usually do this about once a week but if your acne is bad you may want to do it more often. Good luck :)

Sandy asks…

What’s the best facial cleanser for oily and acne prone skin?

I’m using Spectro Jel and have for a few months now and I still have a good amount of acne on my face and it gets very oily. I would prefer something from the drugstore, I know there are a lot of good cleaners there at a good price. So which one will really help keep my face oil and acne free?
Thanks!

admin answers:

I have oily skin too and have found that the biore ice cleanser works really well for me. It is drugstore brand and really cheap. Another great product for oily skin is an astringent (i use the walmart brand). It really helps with acne and makes your skin not as oily. I also like to use a spot treatment about twice a day to help with the really bad acne spots on my face. Right now i use the Clean and Clear advantage spot treatment which works pretty well. I don’t have supper oily skin but i’m a runner so i sweat a lot which then makes my skin pretty oily. If you ever are having a really bad spurt of acne try mixing baking soda with water and letting it dry onto your face. Then rinse it off. Ive heard it has great results for drying out the acne and helping heal it. I hope this helps!

George asks…

what is the homeopathic treatment for vitiligo?

a year ago,i used allopathic pimples cream & soap to remove acne from my face.but it has its side affect and created white patches on my face. kindly tell me the treatment to treat this.

admin answers:

Hello, homeopathic treatment is the sole treatment for permanent relief of vitiligo. It works on the principle of like cures like and therefore homeopathic constitutional medicine that considers your physical, mental, and emotional health is administered by an expert doctor. But it will be better if you consult any reputed homeopath online like at http://www.drshreya.com and ask her your queries directly, you will find it easier. You can also get prescription or medicines here. Hope this works for you. But believe me, homeopathy is the best for any skin condition.

Treatments For Acne Vulgaris

Ruth asks…

How do I get rid of freckles the black ones?

How do I get rid of freckles the black ones? is there away to do that?

admin answers:

Ummmm.. Freckles arent black. Your probably thinking of blackheads.Sometimes even more visible than acne, blackheads are another one of acne’s evil counterparts which show signs of skin contamination.

Blackheads are caused by excess oils that have accumulated in duct of the sebaceous glands. This can be due to excess make-up or an excess build up of oil (secreted from the face). The excess accumulation causes the natural bacteria to multiply and cause the blackhead to appear.

Blackheads are not always black, though most of the time the form of acne vulgaris which is identified as blackheads, portray the characteristics of actual black coloration, blackheads can also take the form of a yellowish bump along the skin.

Due to the natural effects of adolescence, where the glands of the face are enlarged due to different levels of hormones, teens are often the ones with the most blackheads. Unfortunately, as one passes through puberty and on through the rest of his or her life, blackheads still may occur.

There are solutions!

Depending on your skin condition, and the severity of blackheads, there are treatments and methods which can be followed to remove the distasteful little buggards.

Retin A is particularly used for the treatment of whiteheads and blackheads. It treats the whiteheads and blackheads by augmenting the production of skin cells. As new skin cells are produced, the older cells (contaminated with bacteria) are replaced. Retin A is also used to hinder new comedones (blackheads) from forming.

Other methods include physical removal sometimes with pads or other suction devices, or even trying to get them out by your own means. Though this alternative may seem attractive, blackhead removal can actually damage the skin if done improperly. Repeatedly squeezing the blackhead causes the material that is clogging the pore further into the skin, where it can become a pimple. Suddenly your blackhead problem has become worse.

What you should do – Don’t lose hope, just because your face seems plagued with blackheads know that you are not alone, even the most popular celebrities have blackheads. Most importantly keep a good routine of personal hygiene and face cleansing. For further treatment, try some blackhead removal products.

Lisa asks…

Does anyone have any experience with blue light acne treatments?

I just got my blue light lamp in the mail today and I want to start using it tonight but I have my senior pictures tomorrow and I want to make sure the light wont make my face red for tomorrow…my skin isn’t that sensitive but I’ve never used this kind of treatment before so i’m not sure how i’m going to react to it
does anyone have any experience with this?

admin answers:

The function of the blue light therapy is to eliminate the bacteria that causes acne and to remedy the provocative acne vulgaris that had ignored all other kinds of acne treatments. The side effects you will experience from blue-light therapy maybe moderate. Examples of which are momentary skin coloring alterations, puffiness of the area that had received the therapy and a little dryness on your skin. These side effects are side-stepped by a favorable result that will improve your condition to as much as 55% skin clarity.

Sandy asks…

A good acne system or cleanser that isn’t too expensive?

I need a good acne solution. It seems like i can’t go two weeks with clear skin. I always have some pimple somewhere. I also have some acne scars from the past that I hide with make-up. Are there any lotions to help with those. Please help me! I just want to have clear skin for once.

admin answers:

Hi,
Most of the standard products for acne treatments available on the market today are actually dangerous for our inner health. Every day you can find out about new “miraculous” solutions for acne, invented by so- called specialists who are just trying to get rich by taking advantage of people’s despair. We get to use those acne products but only to discover that acne is not at all treated correctly because it reappears as soon as the therapy is ceased.

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.

MediAc Benefits:
Treats acne on the entire body
Fights off bacteria that causes pimples, whiteheads and blackheads
Reduces redness, bumps and flaky, irritated skin
Speeds up new skin rejuvenation and removal of dead skin cells
Encourages routine regulation of skin oils for acne prevention

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.

Acne Treatments While Pregnant

Mark asks…

After I gave birth to my first baby boy my hair start falling, hw can I get my normal hair back?

admin answers:

How were you taking care of your hair, before you were pregnant?
What were the hair products, you were taking . . . .heat & chemicals = hair’s worst enemies.
What supplements or medications were you taking before you were pregnant? ALL HAVE SIDE EFFECTS. Many people take supplements WITHOUT THEIR DOCTOR’S OK.
Hormones, can do hammock to your hair.

Dove hairfall facts:
1. Humidity makes hair dry and brittle, leading to hairfall
2. Colouring the hair damages the hair strands leading to breakage
3. Pollution is also an unseen killer of healthy hair
4. Tangled hair is the most common reason for hair fall
5. While shampooing cleanses your hair, regular conditioning is required for adequate moisturization. Regular use of conditioner post shampoo also solves the problem of entangling which is the major cause of hairfall.

HEAT & CHEMICALS are hair’s worst enemies. You’ve got any of those on your hair?
Supplements, medications, anti-acne products, hair oil, birth control pills, pollution in the water, to name just a few . . . ALL HAVE SIDE EFFECTS. Watch the movie called SIDE EFFECTS. Example: “I used minoxidil drug to restore the hair on my head; however, I ended up with unwanted body hair. I don’t know if it is temporary or I have to seek medical treatment.” YA poster 9-27-12. Four men are charged in federal court for selling home-brewed hair growth drugs online. Http://www.sltrib.com/sltrib/news/54991911-78/ahn-growth-hair-kim.html.csp
As for Rogain, once you stopped, hair loss begins. Read the following blog> The Horrors of Hair Loss
Posted: 02/04/2013 2:19 pm
Any reactions to a drug – like Vitamin B complex which is a supplement – ‘side effect’ is a negative reaction to a drug – this is your body telling you that what you just gave it is toxic to it, and instead of helping you, it is actually hurting you.  It is your body’s way of telling you to stop.  All drugs have side effects, and are toxic…even lethal…to some people at some dosage.  Another term for toxic is poisonous.  We owe it to ourselves to try less toxic treatments first.  Especially since too many drugs merely cover up symptoms rather than treat the underlying cause of the symptom in the first place. Another example: Green Tea supplement: Green tea extract supplements have been linked to several cases of liver damage. Green tea extracts might make liver disease worse.
Source: Health Magazine, FDA, Slate dot com
Another example: Vitamin D posted on Facebook: “I’m regretting reading the small print on my bottle of Vitamin D capsules. The source is “wool oil.” So… Sheep sebum? I can’t get the (hopefully imagined) smell of wet sheep out of my mouth now.”

Google “Boise teen goes on Today Show to talk about losing her hair.” She’s got Alopecia, 100% why you have hair loss.

“You find people oiling hair every single day, the hair sweats and it doesn’t get washed. What do you think happens? It goes limp and becomes thin because it is not breathing,” Shamillah Mohammed, a hairstylist at SUQA, says.

Beginning in February 2008, they experienced one symptom after another: diarrhea, joint pain, HAIR LOSS, lung problems, and fingernails and toenails that fell off. FDA has received numerous reports of harm associated with the use of these products, including stroke, liver injury, kidney failure, heart palpitations, and death. 3-15-11.

Google: January Jones: “My Hair Is Falling Out In Clumps” 1-28-13 To quote Joni Mitchell, “you don’t know what you got till your thick hair is gone.”

When hair starts to fall out MORE, there are no hair products or treatment, that are made of glue to fix, prevent, reverse hair from getting damaged or hair falls. It is a trillion dollar business, and they do not give money back guarantee for damaged hair or hair falls.

Eliminate the ’causes’ and your hair will improve.

What should you do if you think that you may have hair loss? First, call your dermatologist today! If you don’t have one, visit the “Find a Doctor” portion of the website of the American Academy of Dermatology. Secondly, when you visit your dermatologist, have a list of your medications, allergies, medical conditions and your hair care practices (for example: relaxers for 20 years, hot combs for 10 years, no weaves, braids with extensions for two years and natural styles for the last 5 years). Do not be afraid if your doctor suggests blood test, a scalp biopsy or culture. These procedures are recommended so that the doctor can determine the type of hair loss that you have and treatment can be started. ~Susan C. Taylor, MD

Joseph asks…

Will cutting my bangs help clear my skin?

I recently started getting bad acne breakouts on my forehead. I have my hair down over my forehead but I wash my hair at least once per day, sometimes twice. I always wash my fsce properly as well, at least twice per day and I have tried different creams etc that seem to not help at all. Do you think that if I cut my bangs it would help combat my acne? or would it just reveal my acne fully and be a pointless thing to do… thanks for any help!

admin answers:

Yes, absolutely. I had a classmate (back in the 70′s when all the boys had really long hair) who did this, because his long hair got glue in it in shop (in UK it is technical or industrial design class, but I think this is what US pupils call shop) his acne disappeared in a week, he looked heaps better without the long hair too. Here is my natural acne treatment.
Natural acne control protocol:
1/ Never, ever touch your face.
3/ Use 3 facecloths to wash your face, one to soap on, one to soap off with very hot water, one to rinse off with ice cold water, in that order, once a day.
3/ If you are under 18 take 5,000 IU of vitamin A once a day with a full meal
4/ If you are over 18 take 5,000 IU of vitamin A twice a day with a full meal.
Do not get pregnant while taking vitamin A. Do not take any more, like Accutane, it will stop you growing.
5/ Never, ever. Pick, squeeze or pop your spot. Read number 1 again.
6/ Do this for 90 days.

Source:
A bit of advice given to me as a teenager, a bit of science as I am studying allergic reactions and vitamin A is a part of that. A bit of research: I sat in a lecture at the back and watched the acne prone pick at their faces, those with the worse acne touched their faces 32 times in an hour, the clearest complexions didn’t touch their faces even once. I have circumstantial evidence that acne is the result of dermatophyte transfer from hands to face…where it does not get washed off and is well fed by hormones, sweat and oil…just a hypothesis… But it would explain why vitamin A is so effective as vitamin A causes skin to remove dermatophytes.
I never have had acne, a few pimples on my left chin where I am most likely to rest my hand.

Best treatement for acne while pregnant?

My husband and I were married last May, and are now expecting our first baby in July. Because of his Navy career, we weren’t able to have our reception yet, but are having it this next May. So far, im about 16-17 weeks and my skin is HORRIBLE. I want to get this under control, so I can have decent skin for the reception, as I’ll finally be wearing my wedding dress :) Any suggestions for things that anyone has had work for them? Facials?
Thank you!

admin answers:

Your skin is breaking out because of the pregnancy hormones. After battling acne most of my teens and adulthood, I had finally gotten it under control and was perfectly fine. When I got pregnant though, I started breaking out all over again. Unfortunately, the pregnancy limits your options a bit. You can use a Salicylic Acid treatment (you can buy this OTC). I like to use Cetaphil in the morning and a wash at night and follow it with an ointment containing Salicylic Acid. I also try to exfoliate at least once a week to help slough off dead cells. You have to remember that a lot of this is caused by the pregnancy so it will go away but in the meantime keep a good skin care routine.

Treatments For Acne Vulgaris

Laura asks…

How long does it take for Doryx to work?

I think ive been on it for about a lil over a week. Does anyone know when it will start clearing up my acne? Is this suppose to make me worse before better? Ive been on differin for almost a month now so that should be taking care of bringing everything out. Just curious..thanks

admin answers:

A couple of weeks; if you have been on it longer than 3 weeks then you have a very bad case because it can take 6-8 weeks for it to become effective. If you have noticed an increase in your acne then you need to contact your doctor; you may be suffering an allergic reaction.

According to Med Help: http://www.medhelp.org/forums/Dermatology/messages/32787.html
“This drug is a reasonable choice, but if any treatment hasn’t worked in 2-3 months, it’s time to try something else.”

According to: http://www.acneway.com/doryx_acne_side_effects.html
“For controlling acne, Doryx is normally taken over a period of 12 weeks.

If you do not complete the full course prescribed by your doctor, the infection may not clear completely or your symptoms may return.

For treating infections, Doryx is usually taken for one to two weeks”

According to: http://www.aafp.org/afp/20040501/2123.html
“Oral Antibiotics. When acne is resistant to topical therapies, oral antibiotics may be used. Oral antibiotics commonly are initial therapy in patients with moderate to severe inflammatory acne. Systemic antibiotics decrease P. Acnes colonization and have intrinsic anti-inflammatory effects. First-line oral antibiotics have included tetracycline and erythromycin. Because P. Acnes resistance to erythromycin is increasing, this antibiotic is becoming a second-line agent that is used when treatment with tetracycline or other macrolide antibiotics fails or is not tolerated.20

Tetracycline must be taken on an empty stomach. Iron supplements and milk products decrease systemic absorption of the antibiotic. Because of the risk of tooth discoloration and inhibited skeletal growth, tetracycline should not be used in pregnant women or children younger than nine years. Moderate to severe phototoxicity and gastrointestinal intolerance also may limit the use of tetracycline.

Doxycycline (e.g., Vibramycin, Doryx) frequently is used to treat moderate to severe acne vulgaris. However, associated photosensitivity may limit its usefulness.

Minocycline (Minocin) is a potent acne medication, but treatment with this antibiotic generally is reserved for patients who do not respond to or cannot tolerate aforementioned treatment options.21 Rare but serious side effects are more common in patients taking minocycline than in patients treated with tetracycline or doxycycline.22

Oral antibiotics must be taken for six to eight weeks before results are evident, and treatment should be given for six months to prevent the development of microbial resistance.23 Oral antibiotics may be discontinued after inflammation has resolved. Topical antibiotics may be continued for further treatment. Some patients may require long-term oral antibiotic therapy to control their acne and prevent scarring. The dosing, approximate cost, and side effects of systemic medication for the treatment of acne are summarized in Table 3.”

Hopefully your doctor warned you about the associated photosensitivity, which means you need to avoid the sun. This can limit the use of the medication.

Photosensitivity means that exposure to UV light can be painful or you can sunburn easily. If you notice any of these effects then you need to contact your doctor.

According to Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Photosensitivity
“People that are photosensitive experience discomfort or get easily sunburned when exposed to UV light, which may come from sunlight or other sources including sunbeds. This is often caused by an allergy or a medication.”

George asks…

How do I get rid of acne at a low cost?

I’ve been really stressed lately and it seems like using facial cleansers don’t work.

admin answers:

Acne vulgaris is an inflammatory disease of the skin, caused by changes in the skin structures consisting of a hair follicle and its associated sebaceous gland. Acne lesions are commonly referred to as pimples, spots, plukes or zits. Acne is generally placed into one of three categories; mild, moderate or severe. If you have acne and you feel that it is getting worse instead of better, the best thing that you can do is let a professional dermatologist have a look at your condition and prescribe an appropriate treatment for you. Mild acne is first treated by gently washing the area twice daily with warm water and soap. In addition to cleansing the area, an over-the-counter cream or similar otc products that incorporates benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid should be used. If you have moderate acne, consult a dermatologist in order to quickly get a handle on your situation.

Ruth asks…

What do you know about hyperpigmentation ?

What do you know about hyperpigmentation and how do you treat it ?

admin answers:

Treatment of hyperpigmentation may include hydroquinone, kojic acid, alpha hydroxy acids, azelaic acid, ascorbic acid, tretinoin (Retinol), topical glucocorticoids, and licorice extract.

CausesHyperpigmentation may be caused by sun damage, inflammation, or other skin injuries, including those related to acne vulgaris.[1] People with darker Asian, Mediterranean or African skin tones are also more prone to hyperpigmentation, especially if they have excess sun exposure.

Many forms of hyperpigmentation are caused by an excess production of melanin. Hyperpigmentation can be diffuse or focal, affecting such areas as the face and the back of the hands. Melanin is produced by melanocytes at the lower layer of the epidermis. Melanin is a class of pigment responsible for producing color in the body in places such as the eyes, skin, and hair. As the body ages, melanocyte distribution becomes less diffuse and its regulation less controlled by the body. UV light stimulates melanocyte activity, and where concentrations of the cells are denser than surrounding areas, hyperpigmentation is effected.[2] Can also be caused by using skin lightening lotions.

Hyperpigmentation is associated with a number of diseases or conditions, including:

Addison’s disease and other sources of adrenal insufficiency, in which hormones that stimulate melanin synthesis, such as melanocyte-stimulating hormone (MSH), are frequently elevated.
Cushing’s disease or other excessive adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) production, because MSH production is a byproduct of ACTH synthesis from proopiomelanocortin (POMC).
Acanthosis nigricans – hyperpigmentation of intertriginous areas associated with insulin resistance.
Melasma, also known as chloasma – patchy hyperpigmentation often found in pregnant women.
Linea nigra – a hyperpigmented line found on the abdomen during pregnancy.
Peutz-Jeghers syndrome – an autosomal dominant disorder characterized by hyperpigmented macules on the lips and oral mucosa and gastrointestinal polyps.
Exposure to certain chemicals such as salicylic acid, bleomycin, and cisplatin.
Smoker’s melanosis
Celiac disease
Cronkite-Canada syndrome
Porphyria
Tinea fungal infections such as ringworm
Haemochromatosis – a common but debilitating genetic disorder characterized by the chronic accumulation of iron in the body.
Mercury poisoning – particularly cases of cutaneous exposure resulting from the topical application of mercurial ointments or skin-whitening creams.
Aromatase deficiency
Nelson’s syndrome
Hyperpigmentation can sometimes be induced by dermatological laser procedures.

Acne Treatments At Home

Mandy asks…

How do you get rid of a pimple fast and easy?

So I have pimples all over my face! And I can’t just go out and buy something like acne treatments. I need a simple way to get rid if them! Any ideas? Please

admin answers:

I used to breakout in acne due to oily skin myself.
Genetic and Stress can affect hormones and can theoretically promote acne.
Here are some home remedies that can help but do not mix them together.
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. Leave on to long will leave a scar.
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 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 Lucy Vitamin or in health food stores. It is the same price as some of the acne medications, either prescribe or over-the-counter.

Donald asks…

admin answers:

There is a cream called “METRONIDAZOLE” but this cream has to be prescribed by a DR.
There is another cream, that even though is not intended for acne worked like a wonders on me, it is called cortizone cream it has steroids, which reduce the inflammation…(use it before going to bed)
Good Luck and hope you find your answer!

Sandy asks…

If you start a new acne treatment does your face break out?

I’m 21 years old, and have had pretty bad acne off and on since puberty. It’s finally gotten so bad that I’m trying new face washes to see if anything will clear it up. My question is, if I break out worse when I start a new face wash, does that mean it’s working and all the dirt and oil and stuff is coming out? Or is it just not working and I need to try something else.

admin answers:

Carol asks…

When you start a new acne treatment, should your acne get worse before it gets better?

OK so I just started using this new acne medicine last night. It’s not proactive but it’s just like it. I’ve read that your acne will get worse before it gets better. Is this true? And if so, why? Is it because it brings the bacteria to the surface?
Oh, and if it does get worse before it gets better, should I pop the pimples or should I let the medicine do it’s trick?

admin answers:

It’s different for everyone. You need to find a face wash and stick with it. The best way to get rid of it is to wash your face twice a day with a wash that has a high content of salcylic acid. Before you wash, fill a sink with hot water and steam your face. That will help to open up your pores and let the medicine in to work. And most importantly, keep your hands away from your face except to wash it!

Mark asks…

What is the best acne treatment for teens?

I have mild acne but my current face wash, which I’ve been using up until now with good results, is no longer working. What is the best daily face wash/treatment?

admin answers:

For me, those face wash things never worked but i found something really simple that worked for me, and i love it cuz its completely cheap and easy and quick. I totttttally swear by it! Here’s what you do:

1. Fill up your sink with steaming hot water
2. Put your face over the bowl of the sink and put a towel over your head, allowing you to steam your face without the steam escaping. This opens your clogged pores.
3. Stay like this for 3-5 minutes, then drain the sink and wash your face with your regular cleanser and warm water.
4. Finish with a splash of cold water to close your pores
5. Finally, apply any spot treatment you might have such as clearisil to any blemishes

i know it looks like a lot, but its cheap and it honestly works. Plus you don’t have to buy anything so there’s nothing to lose by trying it. It usually takes about a day after doing this for your zits to start going away. I usually do this about once a week but if your acne is bad you may want to do it more often. Good luck :)
