emphasis on home remedies
Alcohol hand sanitizer dries the skin and seems to heal spots quite quickly, takes the redness out of them. I get acne too and I use it if the outbreak is bad enough.
see here, I was born with my mother’s terrible skin. I have uncontrollable acne and it seems that I’ve tried every brand of acne treatment under that sun. I have tried two at home remedies. overnight spot treating with honey and overnight treating with toothpaste. And they haven’t helped. But I don’t think it’s really necessary to see a dermatologist at this point, much less can my parents afford it. Please give me a good home remedy and accurate directions, ingredients, & measurements.
Have you tried proactiv? I love it. I’ve used it for three years and I’ll never use anything else. It’s 20/month and they send you a new kit every other month (so it’s like 40 for the kit). It lasts a long time though and they give you a mask spot-treatment that is just amazing. (every other two months I call and ask them to freeze my account because I don’t need any more kits for a while, and each time they have.) i also use the oil-free moisture every day because it has spf 15 and makes my skin feel amazing.
I was prescribed 2 medicines for acne treatment, one is Benzoyl Peroxide Wash 10% and Erythromycin Topical Solution USP 2% and i want to know which one do i apply first?? They did not tell me which one goes first. The Benzoyl Peroxide Wash 10% is like a cream sort of thing and the Erythromycin is like an alcohol substance but im not sure it just looks like it….so if someone could please tell me which one goes first i would really appreciate it!! Thanks!

I’ve tried differn gell, didnt works, i tried lots of creams and “natrual” stuff, didnt work.
If you have dark spots or scars on your face from a breakout or suffered from any unwanted darkening of the skin. Try ZENMED Scar Treatment Kit, after using 8 to 10 times acne scars appear lighter and less visible. Another quality skin care product from Zenmed. Try it once and see the difference…
I have moderate acne and have red scars left behind. I was wondering what products have worked well for teens. I just don’t want to have scars for life.
Laser acne scar removal. It gets rid of the scars and refreshes the skin so it looks smoother, fresher and less blotchy. It even gets rid of bacteria that could cause future breakouts.
It’s driving me insane I hate my face the acne is getting worse and I don’t know why! I wash my face at night (and I shower). I have an ok diet I skip a few meals now and I drink energy drinks and then but otherwise fine. I treat it with oxy pads for the time being, how long until it goes away. Does anyone know any fast acting treatments my acne is pretty bad and I feel really self-conscious. Also how does sweat effect acne?
How to Get Rid of Acne: ………………Thanks to Mama Bear for the following.
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.
Take care! Mama Bear

does anyone know how to get rid of acne scars?
like is there any product i can use ?
like neutrogena or clearasil?
It sounds a little wired but go get a whole lemon at the store. Squeeze all the juice into a container that you can store in the fridge. Take some cotton balls and rub the juice on your face. Lemon is a natural bleach so it won’t hurt your skin. Leave it on while you sleep and wash it off in the morning. This works soooo much better if you use it on existing acne or if your a picker (i assume from the scars you are) apply it to the open wounds
Another really good think to help prevent scars is a honey mask. Just heat up honey (make sure its just warm,not hot) and rub it on your face. It feels a little wired but believe me it works wonders.. Put your head back and relax for 10-15 minutes then rinse it off.
Make sure your face is completely clean before you do either of these washes.
I’m really into the homemade stuff, because my face is really sensitive. If you want any more remedies message me I would love to help you out
I can’t seem to get rid of old acne scars. I don’t get pimples anymore, but these scars make my face look so “dirty”. I really had a lot of painful memories having acne, and I just want to get rid of it for good. I’m going to a dermatologist this week, but I really don’t want to take medications for it. There must be a way our body can repair damage through proper nutrition.
If you have acne now, or have gotten over acne, chances are you have many ugly scars that just don’t seem to go away. This is a problem most acne sufferers have that can last for years. An embarrassing problem like that can leave you saying how do i get rid of old acne scars? Believe it or not, but if you do the right things, your acne scars can go away in no time, if only you target the real reasons that your scars just wont heal. In this article I will reveal a couple of little known secrets that will have your scars gone in no time.
I am sure you have heard many people out there say that the best way to get rid of acne scars is with vitamin E, and you probably tried it with little success. While the problem is a deficiency of vitamin E, the problem may not be that your not getting enough of it. I know that doesn’t make sense, but the real cause of the vitamin E deficiency is that a majority of the vitamin E is getting destroyed in your body long before it has the chance to help your old acne scars heal.
Way back many years ago our water suppliers started dumping chlorine into the water supply to kill bacteria in the water. At the time it seemed like a good idea, but with new modern information we now know today about the harmful effects of even small amounts of chlorine we now know it may not have been such a good idea. While small amounts of chlorine may not be enough to harm out bodies, it can destroy things that are extremely beneficial for our bodies like vitamin E. Every time you drink or shower in chlorinated water you are destroying the very vitamins that can help you get rid of old acne scars.
One other problem with chlorinated water is that it also impedes the digestion of food. When we eat food our digestion system strips the nutrients from the food for use in your body. Our digestive system uses several processes including bacteria to help digest your food. Chlorine destroys this beneficial bacteria meaning not only that most of the nutrition you are taking in is getting destroyed, but also a lot of it is never taken from your food in the first place.
Often there is no way to get rid of the chlorine in your water supply, so you will probably have to take action into your own hands and buy a water filter for your drinking and bathing water. I can’t stress enough how important it is to buy water filters for both your drinking and bathing water. Most people think that drinking water is the only water that matters. Recent studies show that for every 10 minutes you spend in the shower your skin absorbs the same amount of chlorine as if you drank 8 glasses of water. So I strongly suggest you buy a filter for drinking and bathing water.
One other thing you should do is take some vitamin E supplements from your nearest health or drug store. When you get filters for your water and the vitamins you are taking in are finally being utilized in healing your scars it really is a good idea to begin taking some vitamin E supplements. It is really cheap and can quickly heal your acne scars.
I have acne scars, not too bad, and I was wondering if there is a natural way to get rid of acne scars, or maybe a treatment that’s not too harsh on the skin.
No, dumbass answers like boil your body in oil, either.
You can rub lemon juice on the area. It takes a while to show but it works. Also you can do a honey facial. Where you mix honey and lemon juice. It brightens your skin and makes it sooooooooo soft.

Ok. So just recently (like a couple of months ago) i had one of the biggest breakouts of my life. I have used just about every over-the-counter acne treatment system on the market. I have scheduled an appointment with the dermatologist for a Smoothbeam treatment. I am so sick of my acne its hard to look in the mirror. I was wondering if anyone has had a laser treatment done and how long was it before you saw results, if any.
Acne is an inflammatory skin condition characterized by superficial skin eruptions around hair follicles.Acne is merely a signal for a much deeper imbalance inside the body.One of the most commonly used ingredients, Benzoyl Peroxide can be very effective in treating mild cases of non-inflammatory acne.
‘Acne No More’ is a widely accepted acne treatment program but it has been given less attention than it deserves. It is an all-natural, holistic acne battling cure that permanently cures acne, ends breakouts, and prevents future pimples. ‘Acne No More’ is one of the few permanent acne cures in existence, because the book teaches you to treat acne from the inside out.
I need to get rid of my acne, fast, and keep it gone
Yes there are faster ways. But for right now very important that you avoid alcohol products to tone your skin. Alcohol is a strong astringent that strips the top layer of the skin causing sebaceous glands to produce more oil.
Do not squeeze or pick the acne with fingernails, pins or any other thing. It forces the bacteria deeper into the skin and often leaves a permanent acne scar.
Exercising regularly can also help reduce stress and it increases blood circulation and oxygen penetration to the skin, which may help with acne prevention.
Drink plenty of water a day to help “detoxify” the body from the inside out.
Consume food rich in Vitamin A, Vitamin B-2, Vitamin B-3, Vitamin E and Zinc like eggs, nuts, liver, milk, fish and leafy green vegetables.
Proper sleep and a life without stress and emotional anxiety can reduce acne.
This method is beneficial only after a real acne treatment. Most people stick to this method to avoid acne problem so it won’t occur again.
Okay. So, I have a few pimples and the regular acne treatment I have isn’t working. So, I need a way to get rid of pimples. But, I’m trying to not go to the store. So, I need at home ingredents to help. All suggestions are greatly appreciated.

I have lots of super small pimples on my cheeks! I always have red spots!!! Any natural remedies and tips!? Please help!!
Green Apples help ALOT! )))
I am a 14 year old boy and I have acne. It’s mostly on my cheeks and forehead and it looks so bad.
I have tried Clearasil facewash but it didnt work :/ I also wash my face with hot water every morning and night, but it’s not getting better. I hate having acne and feel like everyone is just staring at me in school.
What can I do to get rid of it? I dont really want to spend money to use any products that doesn’t even work. So are there any natural home remedies that can make it go away, or atleast less worse? If needed, I could upload pictures, but I’ll wait with that. Thanks
There are many ways to cure acne. You have to experiment to find what is best for you. Everyone is different, so don’t give up!
The BEST treatment is prevention! My answer is already pretty long, so here is a good link(:
I always wash my pillow cases every week or so. It really helps!
Avoid putting things on your face with a scent, such as hand lotion. It wil most likely cause more breakouts.
“Non-comedogenic” products are best for your skin. Non-comedogenic simply means they will not make your face break out more. They won’t have a scent or any other harmful ingredients.
You can’t go wrong with washing your face…
Wash your face twice a day, with the hottest water you can stand. Hot water will open those pores for a much more thorough clean. Rinse with cold water to close those pores back aswell!
Now when you are buying face wash.. You will notice there are two main active ingredients to treat acne.
- Salicylic Acid
- Benzoyl Peroxide
Both are very effective treatments. When used together they can be even better. Just make sure to keep your skin moisturized, they will dry your face quickly.
Salicylic Acid – Works by causing the cells of the epidermis to shed properly. This prevents pores from being clogged. The acid is also known to break down black heads as well as whiteheads. It also allows your skin to absorb more benzoyl peroxide.
Benzoyl Peroxide – Removes dead skins cells and fights bacteria. When used correctly, it can also reduce redness. Probably the most effective by far.
Here are some other options if you want to experiment with at-home methods…
I prefer to use natural products myself. Tea Tree oil has been proven to work as well as Benzoyl Peroxide with less side effects. Although it takes longer to show results. It isn’t for everyone!
I’ve started using a witch hazel toner. It works very well and for a great price. Here is a link for witch hazel uses and benefits..
Some research suggests vitamins such as A and all of the B Vitamins help with acne. Here’s the link for that.. Http://goo.gl/rnCk1
Like I said before, everyone is different, so give everything a try! Here is a wiki article, for extra info!
Rubbing Alcohol… Will fight bacteria that cause acne. But alcohol will deffinatly dry that face fast, and potentially cause redness.
* This can actually make acne worse if you dry out your skin… Use in moderation and moisturize often.
To even skin tone and also fight acne I use an Alpha Hydroxy Acid lotion at 10% strength, 3 times a week. It also helps with wrinkles and scars(:
A healthy diet is also very helpful.. But come on, we all know that isn’t easy. Here’s a link for tips on dieting to improve skin. Http://www.m.webmd.com/skin-problems-and-treatments/features/diet-and-skin
Moisturizing is VERY important for a healthy face. It will prevent a lot of dryness. When you get dryness and cracks in the skin, you are just asking for more acne.
Always remember to use non-comedogenic products.
* If you don’t moisturize, your face will become oily, making you want to touch and wipe your face, spreading bacteria and other crap into those pore! Plus oil is more likely to attract dirt and dust.
Finally, NEVER touch your face. It’s probably the worse thing you can do. Besides popping your pimples… If you pop them, it will make them spread, leave scars, or even get infected. I don’t advise popping them… But if you really must… Do it the right way! Here is a wiki article.. Http://m.wikihow.com/Pop-a-Pimple
Remember not to be discouraged. Everyone gets acne. It’s normal. You just have to experiment to find out how YOU can control yours. Good luck
Feel free to contact me via email on my yahoo profile with any questions you may have. I’ll help with anything I can.
I have some on my thighs, chest, and lower legs. Btw I’m a girl
I too have had problems with body acne. After trying all sorts of things, from medications, prescription soap, and various strange diet alterations and none of those worked. The one soap that I found that seems to be effective in clearing up skin problems is this stuff called Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soap. The stuff is great, it’s all natural and mild enough that you can even brush your teeth with it. No joke. It’s made with natural plant oils and comes in a variety of scents. I recommend using it with a loofah.
The soap looks kind of expensive, but the 32 oz. Bottle lasts me about a year of daily use on average. So a little goes a long way. A few drops in the loofah, lather it up and you have enough to wash your whole body. No detergents, no chemicals, no foaming agents and nothing you would need to learn how to pronounce.
And that’s the best advice I can give.

I am almost 20 years old and I am so fed up with this acne. I’ve had it since i was 13 and it won’t go away. It’s a combination of blackheads, whiteheads, papules and pustules. Just everything, I think it’s called acne vulgaris. Im not hoping for 100 percent clear skin but its like no matter what i do, it’s all there!
So what worked for you?
oh and I have tried going to the derm. Retin-A and antibiotics seems to help a little but not very much.
I know that acne is misery. Beware of using any products for acne unless they have been prescribed or recommended by your doctor. Often antibiotics are needed to treat acne, so you should see a doctor about it again. Discuss what has worked and what hasn’t worked. There are a number of medications that can be tried.
People make all kinds of suggestions about the best thing to do to cure acne. Some cures I’ve heard include putting oatmeal, honey, lemon juice, tea tree oil, cucumber, vinegar, milk of magnesia or toothpaste on your face. Practically every cosmetics company and company that makes personal care products makes something that is a “sure cure” for acne. If we think about this, and use some common sense, we have to come to the conclusion that there is no quick or easy cure for acne, because if there was it would be well known and doctors would be telling everyone about it.
Numerous companies make a lot of money persuading people to buy products that at worst will make the acne worse, and at best may help some people a little. Often fewer products are better. People often make their acne much worse by using too many products. There really is no quick fix for acne. Don’t spend a lot of money on products just because their ads say that they will cure acne. Your doctor is the best person to ask for help, and he or she may recommend some prescription medication or non-prescription treatment that may be suitable for you..
There are some very simple and basic things you can do that cost nothing. Keep your face or any other area affected by acne very clean. Any mild antibacterial soap will help with that. Rinse the area well to remove all soap residue. Drink plenty of water – it really does help to clear up acne. Eat a nutritious diet and get enough sleep. A healthy life style will make a difference. Try to reduce the stress in your life – stress contributes to acne, so also probably the more you worry about the acne and focus on it, the worse it will be.
Probably the most useful and effective things you can do are to apply hot compresses to pustules and cysts and never to pick or squeeze pimples. Playing with or popping pimples, no matter how careful and clean you are, nearly always makes bumps stay redder and bumpier longer.
Here are a few informative links with additional ideas about preventing and treating acne.

So is it actually stress? But even then everyone is stressed and not everyone has acnes, right?
Please suggest some home-made remedies which are not too expensive and easy to follow as well.
Please also give names of some medicines with least amount of side-effects.
While giving the brand names of medicines available in the market where you live, please also give their generic names; as brand names could differ from country to country.
I am in India.
There are many products sold for the treatment of acne, many of them without any scientifically-proven effects. Generally speaking successful treatments give little improvement within the first week or two; and then the acne decreases over approximately 3 months, after which the improvement starts to flatten out. Many treatments that promise big improvements within 2 weeks are likely to be largely disappointing. However short bursts of cortisone can give very quick results, and other treatments can rapidly improve some active spots, but not usually all active spots.
Widely available OTC bactericidal products containing benzoyl peroxide may be used in mild to moderate acne. The gel or cream containing benzoyl peroxide is rubbed, twice daily, into the pores over the affected region. Bar soaps or washes may also be used and vary from 2 to 10% in strength. In addition to its therapeutic effect as a keratolytic (a chemical that dissolves the keratin plugging the pores) benzoyl peroxide also prevents new lesions by killing P.acnes
Care must be taken when using benzoyl peroxide, as it can very easily bleach any fabric or hair it comes in contact with.
Other antibacterials that have been used include triclosan, or chlorhexidine gluconate but these are often less effective, but also give less side-effects.
Less widely used treatments
Aloe vera: there are treatments for acne mentioned in Ayurveda using herbs such as Aloe vera,Aruna, Haldi (Turmeric),and Papaya. There is limited evidence from conventional medical studies on these productsProducts from Rubia cordifolia, Curcuma longa (commonly known as Turmeric), Hemidesmus indicus (known as ananthamoola or anantmula), and Azadirachta indica (Neem) have been shown to have anti-inflammatory effects, but not aloe vera
Azelaic acid (brand names Azelex, Finevin, Skinoren) is suitable for mild, comedonal acne
Heat: local heating may be used to kill the bacteria in a developing pimple and so speed healing.
Naproxen or ibuprofen are used for some moderate acne for their anti-inflammatory effect
Nicotinamide, (Vitamin B3) used topically in the form of a gel, has been shown in a 1995 study to be more effective than a topical antibiotic used for comparison, as well as having fewer side effects. Topical nicotinamide is available both on prescription and over-the-counter. The property of topical nicotinamide’s benefit in treating acne seems to be its anti-inflammatory nature. It is also purported to result in increased synthesis of collagen, keratin, involucrin and flaggrin.
Tea Tree Oil (Melaleuca Oil) has been used with some success, comparable to benzoyl peroxide but without excessive drying, and has been shown to be an effective anti-inflammatory in skin infections.
Rofecoxib was shown to improve premenstrual acne vulgaris in a placebo controlled study
Zinc: Orally administered zinc gluconate has been shown to be effective in the treatment of inflammatory acne, although less so than tetracyclines

I have a lot of acne scars on the lower right side of my faces. I’ve had them for about two years now and I want to get rid of them FAST. I don’t want to get anything done with like machines and everything, I’d just like to know if there are any creams that anyone uses or if there’s any home remedies that I could do. If anyone knows any effective ways to get rid of them, please let me know!
Here’s my product recommendation: Vital Repair Serum by Cellnique. Vital Repair Serum contains Vitamin C that helps repair damaged cells, speed up the healing process and restore the collagen homeostasis of skin. Further infused with optimized biopolymer complex of Live Yeast extract and Wheat Germ extract it helps combat skin irritation and normalizes stressed skin.
This is worth to try product. Besides that, you may try this natural remedies:
1. Vitamin E – Vitamin E oil can help decrease scarring. If your skin has been scarred due to a cut, burn, or acne, apply Vitamin E oil to your skin and you will see that in just a few weeks, your scarring will lighten.
2. Organic Fresh Lemon Juice – Squeeze a bit of lemon juice into a bowl and dab a cotton ball in it then apply the juice to your face lightly with the cotton ball. Leave it on for 10 minutes, then rinse off. Lemon juice is not only a natural astringent to reduce oil and even your skin tone, but it will lighten marks from acne.
3. Baking Soda Face Mask – Mix a 1 teaspoon of baking soda with 2 teaspoons of clean water and apply to your clean face. Leave on for a couple minutes then rinse off with warm water. Baking soda face mask is a mini microdermabrasion treatment you can do at home!
