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.
Toothpaste or tea tree oil if you have it

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!

It depends what you consider PRETTY. Black is beautiful, pale is beautiful, but flawless complexion is even more beautiful, and it doesn’t happen in months. It takes YEARS to get there! I started by age 9.
The sun and too much soaking in the tub or pool – skin’s worst enemies. If you’ve got pimples or acne scars, using a wide brim hat or umbrella prevents them from permanent discolorations, and avoid using products that can do MORE HARM than good. What’s best for some, may react violently on your skin, specially if you’ve got sensitive skin.
Any kind of facial wash, you’re leaving something toxic behind, it’s not a matter of convenience, it’s a billion dollar business that can do more harm than good to your acne. And sometimes we feel entirely virtuous about our skin-care regimen because it’s full of SPF– all year round!– and cleansers and such. But the truth is, we may not realize that we’re overdoing (or underdoing) something that can lead to the very thing we’re trying to avoid: dryness, breakouts, accelerated aging, New York dermatologist Dr. Jeannette Graf. (I’ve been giving this same advice for decades, but she’s proof enough!).
Take a shower everyday, use washcloth to exfoliate and bath & body wash. Hydrogen peroxide does wonders for acne. Visit their website for more tips & other uses. ONLY $1.
Acne medication could worsen what ever allergies you have, so instead of trying out one product after another, you’re actually spreading it around.
The secret is keeping your face clean and oil-free. I also don’t use liquid on my face for anything, and very little moisturizer, not even a dime size. Since my face is not dry. Good skin also comes from your good genes. Increase your fresh fruits & vegetables 3-5 servings per day. And programmed your mind to do this day after day, for the rest of your life.
Sometimes just the oil on your face from make up and lotions, even from your hair can travel to your face causing acne to come out. Others, from stress, hormones & diet or foods.

London, Feb 20, 2013 I’ve been saying that since 2009.
Hair dyes, which include home hair colouring kits and those used at pricey salons, are linked to deadly cancer-causing chemicals, warn scientists. In 2009 the Mail revealed that women who used hair dyes more than nine times a year had a 60% greater risk of contracting blood cancer.
A year later the European Commission banned 22 hair dyes which put long-term users at risk of bladder cancer. < < < <?
Heat & chemicals are hair's worst enemies. That's NOT very pretty, if you've got dry, damaged, or hair falls. 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.?
Hair products are NOT made of glue to fix, prevent, reverse hair from getting damaged, or hair loss, or make them grow . . . . They are a trillion dollar business. They also do NOT give money back guarantee for damaged hair or hair loss caused by heat & chemicals – hair's worst enemies.

NO MATTER which link you picked, they all suggest the same foods. Your hair may be the fastest-growing tissue in the body but, unlike the skin, it cannot repair itself. That is why getting the right balance of vitamins and proteins is imperative. Don't expect to look like you've stepped out of a hair commercial the day after you've changed your diet. It is likely to take at least three months before you actually see tangible results. Hair is dead, but hair also has electrical energy; the negative charge of damaged hair can lead to flyways and unruly hair.
Growing healthy hair doesn't come from a bottle or pills and hair products do not speed hair growth. Any hair oil, is another form to keep hair moisturized, nothing more. If you're in HS, your hair & nails should be growing normally, and as healthily as possible, since you're eating healthy foods. But when hair isn't growing as fast, it's because they've been tampered with: chemicals, hair straightening, etc. . .

If you can find a product with sulfur in it, this should work. When a baby is born, his/her skin is 98% sulfur, so what you are accomplishing when you apply sulfur to the acne, is slowly replacing the old skin with new skin, but it does take time. Two products that I have seen give tremendous results, unfortunately, are no longer available. One was Reele Clean (Tm), 100% sulfur with the odor removed, and the other was Acnomel. Clearasil may have sulfur. But anyway, if you were to go online, and type in sulfur product for acne into google or yahoo, I’m sure you will find a product somewhere. I wish you the best. Hope this helps!
This is my first time ever with a huge zit breakout. Ive always had a pretty clear complexion,even in my teens,but now that im 25 im getting my first actual nasty breakout. Dont know what its from but i woke up 2 days ago with like 5 or 6 big ugly red painful zits all over my chin and near my nose. Im supposed to go to the beach for labor day and dont want to go looking like i had a herpes attack. Ive been using clean & clear cleansers/blemish treatment but it hasnt done much. I know using makeup makes it worse but is there any safe kinds of cover up? Is there any way to improve this in any way within 2 days? Any advise would be appreciated.
Hey, I’ve had a problem w/ acne too, for quite awhile . Recently I bought Stridex power pads and they worked amazing! But it might take a few days to clear EVERYTHING up but it will make ur face look better …. I use it 2-3 times a day but you may only want to use it once a day in the beginning. U can use a wash ( I use clean and clear Morning Burst) before you use the pads. Im requesting this because I tried Proactive and spent a lot of money and it did not work and Stridex, is not prescription and cheap. U can get it at drugstores or even some grocery stores… U should go to their web site (yahoo search stridex) and It well give u a location near where you live.
Hope this helps!

My older brother says that acne medicine and creams make pimples go away for a bit and then bring more pimples so that the company can make money off you buying their product multiple times. Is this true? and what homemade acne treatment is proven to work?
That’s not nessicarily true, if you use acne creams and treatments they actually do work however acne treatments work differently for different people because people have different skin types. However i knew this one person who used this acne crem to make her acne go away and it actually made it worse BUT when the person’s sister used it it completely cured their acne.
You just have to find what kind of acne treatment works best with and for your skin. You could try to find skin ID from nuetragena . They ask you questions about your skin and the type of acne you have and then they give you the type of creams that work best with your skin.i havn’t used it my self but to me it seems that the product you get would be best for your skin.
hope this answers your question
i actually threaded my own face hair and its bright red and like i have acne marks and then redness on top now. I just want to prevent any more pimples
The thing is should i still cleanse and moisturize in that area? and use acne treatment??
what can help prevent the redness after waxing.
First off if you have oily skin don’t use lotions or oils on your face. And if you waxed putting deodorant where you waxed actually helps. Also when shaving. And you shouldn’t cleanse more than two times a day sinse it damages skin. And for the redness just let it be. Cold air helps. Also ice sometimes feels good. Roll on deodorant works too
I heard cetaphil is good but does it work for acne? What do you use? Please?
No one thing works for everybody. Cetaphil is a good cleanser and moisturizer, but it is not acne treatment. If cleansing alone fixed acne, dermatologists would not have to treat it. Over the counter you have benzoyl peroxide for pimples and salicylic acid for blackheads. There are many brands of these two things. If after two months these don’t help, see the dermatologist.
