Can someone recommend a good acne treatment that doesn’t make your face all oily, but doesn’t completely dry it out either?
I’m using proactiv™ right now, but my face is all oily..
And something that works fast?
And not like SUPER EXPENSIVE?
I just went to the drugstore and used clean and clear(cream cleanser one )….it freshens ur skin and reduces the oil greatly…cleared up my skin after like 3 times using it.
Skin tags around my neck. This all happened so fast.
I am using essential oils and acne treatments to dry them up.
Does anyone have any other suggestions ?
Its part of aging. My doc suggested removing them by sort of strangling them with a piece of dental floss. You can also get rid of them by pinching them firmly between the fingernails for about a minute to cut off the blood supply. I have even clipped them off with nail clippers.
I recently bought the Neutrogena Visibly Even moisturizer. It has SPF and it claims to even out your skin tone and get rid of brown blotchy spots. I was wondering if I should use this with the corresponding foam cleanser.
I have moderate acne do I do use face washes meant for acne prone skin. The Visibly Even foam cleanser doesn’t have any acne treatments in it though… Comments/suggestions?
Neutrogena Visbly even moisturizer is really good it helps to
even out the skin Over the time it will remove Impurities and acne scars
the results are not fast but Soy will help to improve the skin.
Neutrogena Visibly even foaming cleanser is Alright Not favorite it has
Beads is exfoliating face cleanser I find a bit strong for taste but it work

Put some ice (wrapped in a towel) on your face for the swelling, and mix a little Visine in your moisturizer right before you get ready for your date to take care of the redness. Good luck!
I’ve got a big pimple on my face. Had it for 2 days now and I hope to get rid of it completely before school which is in about 4 days. Im not to buy any products especially to get rid of pimples thnx so just anything in ann average househld
How to Get Rid of Acne:
Rub fresh lemon juice on your pimples with a gentle hand. The bleaching properties of lemon juice lighten the skin and thus reduce its appearance. Moreover, it removes the topmost layer of the skin surface where bacteria grows and controls the infection. Thus the healthy underlying skin is revealed. If you hesitate to use concentrated lemon juice on the pimple as you fear it may cause skin irritation, then you can dilute it with rose water.
Application of Ice
This is an easy way to get rid of pimples overnight. You have to pack up some crushed ice in an aluminum foil in order to prevent them from getting melted quickly. Then put it inside a plastic bag and wrap up the pack with a thin towel. Now apply it over the pimples for 10 to 15 minutes. This will shrink the pores forcing the oil and dirt out of it. When the two main culprits are out, you can expect the pimple to clear up in no time.
You can get rid of pimples overnight using toothpaste. Many people find it highly beneficial for this purpose. Take some toothpaste on the tip of your finger and apply it on the pimple in such a way that the entire pimple is covered up with the toothpaste properly. Leave it on the pimple overnight. Next morning when you wash it off with warm water, you will be pleasantly surprised with the result. The trick is that the toothpaste absorb all the oil from the pimple and reduce its size so much that it becomes invisible. However, a toothpaste with gel content is not suitable for this treatment.
Baking soda is considered as one of the best home remedies for getting rid of pimples overnight. Prepare a thick paste using one cup of baking soda, 3 tablespoons of salt and some water. Rub this paste gently over the affected areas of your face making small circular motions. Leave it on the acne for few minutes and then wash your face with cool water. The exfoliant property of the salt removes the dead skin cells from the pores. The baking soda soften up the skin and restore the normal pH balance of the skin. As a result, the pimple clears up fast.
A simple egg mask can help you in getting rid of pimples from your face. Take one or two eggs as per your requirement. Break them and separate the white portion of the eggs from the yolk. It is the egg white that you need to apply as facial mask on your face. Keep it on the face overnight and then wash off with cold water.
Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple cider vinegar is known for its healing and disinfecting properties. To apply it, start with washing the face thoroughly with an antibacterial soap. Pat dry with a towel and then taking a cotton ball apply apple cider vinegar evenly on the affected skin. Leave on for fifteen minutes before washing it off with cold water.
Steam and Clean
In the very initial stages of acne when it is still a small zit or just in the form of whitehead and blackhead you can try doing this. Clean your face with cleansing milk using cotton pads. Now scrub it with a gentle face scrub. Take steam on your face for about 8-10 minutes. Now take a sterilized blackhead remover and clean the blackheads and whiteheads. You can also try squeezing pimples if they are very small. Use a clean cotton pad to clean the pus or blood that flows out. Now finish by cleaning the area with an antiseptic lotion or a toner. This procedure will help keep your skin clean and avoid further acne breakouts. Following this everyday before going to bed is one of the easiest ways to get rid of acne fast at home.
Acne Prevention Tips
•Do not touch the skin areas which are affected by acne with your fingers, as it can spread the infection to other skin areas as well.
•Maintain hygiene i.e., use clean bed sheets, pillow cases and towels. Dirty towels can be the breeding ground of germs and bacteria, thereby causing severe cases of acne breakouts.
•Dandruff and oil in hair can cause acne too, so to prevent that, avoid doing such hair styles which make your hair touch or fall on your face.
•Exercise everyday as it helps in proper blood circulation, and adequate transfer of oxygen to all the body cells. Exercising will help in both reducing stress and preventing acne.
•Take shower after undertaking any kind of exercise or physical activity to prevent dirt and sweat from getting accumulated in the skin pores.
•Drink lots of fluids and water as it will help in elimination of wastes and toxins from the body, resulting in a blemish free, glowing skin.

What is the best way to get rid of acne scars.. won’t tear down your skin or make you break out even worse. I have dark spots around my cheeks due to acne in the past. Any cream, peels, mask, or something! Thanks
PS – if you could also recommend something to minimize pores.. that’d be great too!
Go to dermatologist and get a chemical peel
I have some dark acne scars around my cheekbone area. They’re small but I absolutely hate them.
I want them to go away but I don’t know how. I’m tired of having to wear foundation everyday; since summer is coming up, I don’t want my face to be full of make up in the summer.
I’ve heard that lemon on your face helps bleach scars but I’m scared to try it because I find it a little sketchy.
Any suggestions on how to fade or get rid of acne scars would be very much appreciated.
I was having the same problem of having scars, i have used some home remedies that helped me curing some of my scars.
Squeeze some lemon or lime juice and applying the juice on the acne scars using a cotton swab could reduce blemished dark acne scars.
To treat harmed skin, slice up a tomato and put it on your acne scar because it contains lots of vitamin A plus antioxidants, this will help to renew the skin.
A home remedy that could fade out those acne scars and moisturize the skin is organic olive oil massaged onto the acne scars. A face mask which is certainly one of the great home made remedies for acne scars is a mixing of sour cream, yogurt, oatmeal and some drops of lemon juice. Keep the mask on your entire face for ten to fifteen minutes after which you can wash it off.
Does anybody know how to ged rid of acne scars? My face is literally covered with them, more on the sides than the t-zone. I don’t want to get any expensive dermatologist treatment, I’m just looking for something simple that I can do at home. I use aloe vera right now, and that works a little, but I want to really get rid of them completely! Please help!
What kind of scars are they? Are they reddish/not indentions? If so, this is hyperpigmentation. This usually lasts about 6 months after acne clears. You can look into chemical peels, which are actually like only 40 bucks a pop usually. Apple Cider Vinegar seems to help, simply dilute ACV with equal parts water and dab on the pigmented areas with a cotton ball. You can also search your local drugstore for topical products containing Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHA).
If you have small indentions you can even drink lemon juice in water, and dabbing ACV also may help with these. If you have severe scarring, as in not only shallow indentions and red marks from hyperpigmentation, topical treatments have shown to be pretty ineffective. Although, all these remedies I’ve listened are pretty inexpensive and worth a shot if just that, and reducing the appearance can make a big impact.

I use Proactiv, but I’m done with them. I don’t like how they force you to pay for a new set on their time. I also think the price is insane. I want a cheaper acne treatment that works. I’ve been looking around and of course there is always mixed reviews. I was hoping a few people could give me feedback on what works for their skin. Thank you.
I have very sensitive skin and a lot of the products out there were either too irritating for me (I turned bright red) or they didn’t work (acne continued) or they were just too expensive. So, I know how you feel. Fortunately, I figured out that you really don’t need to spend a lot of money to control acne. There are just a few things to remember:
First, make sure you cleanse at least once a day(body) and wash your face in the morning and at night. Don’t overdo it here (sometimes people shower more often thinking they’ll get rid of the acne by washing it away – you can actually make things worse if you strip away too much of your natural oils because your skin will respond with making more oil – causing more acne.) If, however, you sweat a lot, you may want to wash your skin again (even it it’s just with a wash cloth) – for instance, after playing sports, etc. Wash with a cleanser that YOUR skin responds to. But, do not choose a cleanser that has alcohol in it (as this also causes your skin to dry out and cause more acne). Also, avoid anything with fragrance (this was big for me).
Also, I would also exfoliate on a regular basis. Exfoliating your skin will help remove dead skin cells that get trapped because of too much sebum (oil) on your skin – causing pores to get clogged…thus forming acne. With oily skin, you should exfoliate 3-5 per week. (If you have dry or sensitive skin, only once per week; Normal skin would be everyday.)
One last thing…regarding benzoyl peroxide: In order to get good results (for most people) is to use it on a consistent basis. Usually a 2.5% concentration works for most people if you use it daily. I think it works quite well for acne. There is usually no need for higher concentrations.
Other suggestions I can provide are to drink lots of water and I know there is big debate that food doesn’t cause acne; however, it’s better to choose foods that are healthy for you – thus allowing your body to repair itself (whether from an illness or acne). No need to deprive yourself…start slow and you’ll get there.
Listen to your skin and don’t overdo it. Be as consistent as possible with your skin care regimen and you should be able to keep your acne at bay – without spending a lot of money. I hope this helps you!!
I have mild to normal acne and some redness but I have dry skin, so most acne treatments dry out my skin badly. What is a good acne cleanser, moisturizer, and toner I could use? Please don’t answer something like proactive or any expensive products.. stick with drugstore products if you can. Oh yeah for an exfoliator I use the St. Ives green tea scrub once a week.
I myself have mild acne, redness and dry skin. I was recommended by my dermatologist to use CeraVe acne cleanser and moisturizer. It is working well so far and my face isn’t dry at all. That and cetaphil works well too. You can find them at Target, or your local grocery and drug store.
kindly suggest me some url where i can have good information about acne treatment and alternatives to acne treatment?
First, I understand where you’re coming from. I grew up with really bad acne, not only on my face but on my body as well. It was embarrassing and I tried everything including cleansers, creams, prescription medications, antibiotics, over the counter medications, and even shots from the dermatologist (ouch!) to get rid of it. I never did until many years later when it didn’t matter as much.
Here’s what I found out after lots of research and trial and error, the hard way.
It’s not a topical issue, it doesn’t help much to treat it from the outside, it’s an inside job. When you treat it from the outside it’s like treating the symptoms, not the cause. You’ll hear from many people that’s not the case, and it’s usually because they want you to buy their creams or lotions, and keep buying them month after month after month (or they haven’t experienced the truth). Of course, when you stop using it (as you’ve experienced) your blemishes come back… Because you’re not treating the cause. And the costs for all of these routines/drugs add up month after month.
If you think about it logically, it makes sense. Why do we get rashes, breakouts, or other skin irritations? It’s usually because of something we ate, something that wasn’t meant to be put on our skin, something that caused us stress and our body reacts to all those things.
Bottom line is that most every cause of acne is related to what you eat, how you feel and how you take care of yourself. Your skin is a reflection of what’s on the inside. We have lots of toxins building up in our systems and they have to be cleaned out on the inside and that will reflect on the outside. The blemishes, rashes, acne, etc are indications that your body is reacting to what you’re eating, to stress, toxins, chemicals, hormones… Literally a great number of things.
Basically what I did in a nutshell was clean out my system by taking out the processed and junk foods, and added as much fresh fruits and vegetables to my diet as possible. This part is key. I also started drinking a lot of water daily, starting with 3 or 4 glasses when I wake up (adding a squeeze of fresh lemon at times). I also got more active every day, walking, running, sports, jumping, whatever, just getting active. It not only gave me more energy, it help flush out the toxins that were clogging up my system.

I am 17 years old and I have acne. I am looking for some natural prevention methods of acne. No creams or anything. I heard that eating cashews helps prevent acne. Are there any other foods I should eat or other natural methods of prevention?
Okay apparently people are missing your keyword “natural”. One method that has always worked for me is apple cider vinegar. I use it as a toner and I also make two beverages a day with it. That really helps keep my skin clean and clear. After about a month it gives your skin a really nice complexion. Here is a article with the recipe and more info.
I’m undergoing treatment for my acne by my doctor. I have to do 3 different things and one of them is to use Clindamycin Phosphate pledgets twice a day on my face. But as the side effects say, my face is very dry and red. I want to find a product that might help with the dryness and redness of my skin during this treatment. Any suggestions?
You can moisturize with any noncomedogenic (look for it on the label) moisturizer. If the Clindamycin is causing the irritation, ask for the lotion form as it is not as drying as the pledgets. You may be using other irritating medications such as benzoyl peroxide and a retinoid (differin, tazorac, atralin, retin a, tretinoin and so on) which may also be causing problems. Even if they are changing to the lotion may help the situation overall.
I am interested in anything from chemical peels to laser treatments. I am just tired of my skin and want to do something that works.
Before going to the extreme with chemical peels and laser treatments, there are some very helpful and very inexpensive tips on reducing the look of the scars.
I found that this website has great tips and different things you can do to help with the acne scarring.
I hope this helps you out, I actually do use the lemon juice about twice a week and it has help out the look of my face.

I have a bunch of tiny acne bump all over my cheeks and I don’t know to get rid of them. I want to get rid of them for christmas to look good but idk how to. I don’t wanna buy anthing for it. So if u have any natural home remedies that work really good and fast PLEASE tell me
They may leave a small scar, but that can be covered with a little make-up too. So that is minor. I personally use a dab of toothpaste on the pimple or some alcohol. Both of these products dry up the pimple and reduce its size.
My experience….I hope it helps for you too
I have tried almost everything to get rid of my acne and nothing seems to work. I don’t need anything to dry it out, I just need something to get rid of them. I have them all over my forehead. Any suggestions would be great, it can be home remedies or things that I can purchase at a store. Thanks!

When I was a younger, (teens / early twenties) I had Acne Vulgaris (the severe type of acne). Accutane was the only thing that cleared it all up. I still have an occasional breakout, but it is rare, and minor in comparison to the past. Also, having a good daily hygiene regimen helps immensely.
Consult a dermatologist to find what would be best for you.
