admin answers:

Anyone that has ever had acne, and most of us have had it to some degree, knows that it is a problem. The problem, however, is to be expected at certain ages, and at certain times. We all know that understanding it does not make our consciousness of having pimples go away. Instead, you want a remedy, or a medicine, or something that will just help it to go away. What can we do in an effort to get an effective acne treatment?

Before we look at a good acne treatment, it is important to understand what causes acne. Otherwise, you may be largely undoing whatever method you use. To make it very simple, acne is largely caused by our natural skin oils clogging the pores of our skin, and then a natural bacteria, which thrives on skin oils, causes the infections which results in acne. In addition to this, acne can be triggered, or accentuated, by certain things. Two of the most common triggers are stress, as well as the ladies monthly cycle. Other triggers would be testosterone (in men and women), certain medications and steroids, and simply picking at or squeezing the pimples.

The Basics of Acne Treatment

Here are a few general ideas that will help if you have a regular type of acne.

Keep Your Face Clean

The first thing that you can do, and probably the most important, is to keep your face generally clean. Although this will only help some, nevertheless – it does help. Avoid excessive washing because your face does need some natural oil to keep it healthy – probably twice a day is good, and especially after strenuous activity.

Use Over-The-Counter Medications

More and more medications are appearing on the market to deal with this problem. Because one person’s skin type and amount of oils may differ, what works for one may not have quite the same effect on another. Probably one of the most important ingredients to look for is benzoyl peroxide, which acts as a good antibacterial agent, and tends to dry out the skin some.

Persistency Is The Key

No matter what medication you actually use for your acne treatment, you need to remember that any over-the-counter medication will not work overnight. It will take at least a couple of days – if not a week or more, to see any real results.

If these do not work, or if you have a more serious acne, visit your general practitioner who can help you with a stronger acne treatment.

Daniel asks…

Is it alright to take a SHOWER right after my FACIAL treatment?

As a men, I just had my first facial treatment, along with facial steaming and facial extractions for my acne and blackheads…

I forgot to ask my beauty therapist whether I should take a shower. Is it recommended to take a shower a couple of hours after my treatment? Is it also recommended to cleanse after?

admin answers:

Acnes are identified to strike at will. Especially if you’re a teenager, the chances are that you may be suffering from both blackheads or whiteheads. To be able to do away with them, you’ll be required to cleanse your face with contemporary water and delicate soap. You merely must remove the surplus oil from your face.

Richard asks…

How can I get my skin looking shiny and unspotted?

My skin is white and very sensitive. It’s got some spots and leftover of
acnes and also it’s color doesn’t look slick.
How can I remove those spots and improve my skin?
I’m a 24-year old boy.
Thanks

admin answers:

Drink lots of water, wash, exfoliate and moisturize daily. If you feel too feminine doing this, there are plenty of products for men too! I also use Neutrogena ‘On-the-Spot’ Acne Treatment. I don’t have acne but i put it on whenever i see a blemish or spot morning and evening and it works amazingly quick! You have to make sure you moisturize after using it though or it can make your skin dry after a while.

Tooth paste.

Carol asks…

How do I get rid of pimples fast and forever?

All of my face washes DO NOT work, and I have tried alot. Is there another way to get rid of them fast and forever? And how do you get rid of there scars?

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.
You want to make sure you exfoliate your face every other day. Before putting any application on face for acne. Rinse with cool water then pad dry.

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, psoriasis
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) Mederma good for stretch marks and scars
10) 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.
11) Zinc really works on acne
12) 2% Erythromycin
13) Benzoin Peroxide
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.
18) Coconut oil good for acne and scars.
19) Turmeric powder is also good for acne.
20) Neutrogena products
21) Brown Listerine also sucks the life of your acne wash after about 15 minutes.
22) Witch Hazel & Rubbing Alcohol both are good for acne
23) Aloe Vera either from the plant itself or gel apply on the infected area.
24) Neem oil- good for acne, psoriasis, eczema, skin ulcers (taken either orally or externally)

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.

Treatments For Acne During Pregnancy

William asks…

Has anyone with endometriosis had a good experience with Lupron?

I have had two laparoscopies in the past three years and I’m having pain again. The doctor suggested this instead since I don’t want to get pregnant right now. Any input would be great! Thanks.

admin answers:

Lupron is a horrendous drug. The manufacturer reports the following possible side effects, including but certainly not limited to:

Asthenia, General pain, Headache, Hot flashes/sweats, Nausea/vomiting, GI disturbances, Edema, Weight gain/loss, Acne, Hirsutism, Joint disorder, Myalgia, Decreased libido, Depression/emotional lability, Dizziness, Nervousness, Neuromuscular disorders, Paresthesias, Skin reactions at injection site, Breast changes/tenderness/pain, Vaginitis, Flu-like symptoms, Heart palpitations, Syncope, Tachycardia, Appetite changes, Dry mouth, Thirst, Ecchymosis, Lymphadenopathy, Anxiety, Insomnia/Sleep disorders, Delusions, Memory disorder, Personality disorders, Rhinitis, Alopecia, Hair disorder, Nail disorder, Conjunctivitis, Ophthalmologic disorders, Taste perversion, and Dysuria.

Typically, users of Lupron also experience what is known as Clinical Flare, which is an exacerbation of side effects and symptoms during the first 2 injections or so. Addback therapy, much touted by prescribing physicians, does little to mitigate these effects.

It is unfortunate that all the patients suffering the long-term negative effects of this drug are disbelieved by others, including the medical industry. The PR and marketing monster known as Takeda Abbott Pharmaceuticals (the drug’s maker) spends billions of dollars advertising and marketing this drug every year, as well as providing enticing incentives to docs to Rx it to their patients (this is a FACT; TAP paid a record $875million fine for just that about 4 years ago). So it’s hard for the patient who is suffering from long-term negative effects to be heard.

That “EndoKnow” site and the “Lupron1″ website and all others of a similar nature, which masquerade as helpful communication tools on how to talk to your doc and effectively treat your disease are little more than thinly disguised direct-to-consumer marketing tools paid for by TAP, which take your private contact info and disseminate them to the manufacturer. Beware also editorial materials bought and paid for by TAP, such as those featured through the Endo Association. One has to ask, if it’s paid for, what slant does it have to give?? Look for unbiased materials.

Most docs don’t look past the one tiny study put out by PAID ADVISORS to the Lupron manufacturer that indicates Lupron is a “safe, cost-effective” way of treating Endo. I see nothing safe or cost-effective about inducing significantly negative, long lasting side effects in women who are already suffering with an insidious disease. Read both of these papers (even if already diagnosed):

http://www.endocenter.org/pdf/surgery%20vs.%20gnrh.pdf

Surgery versus the Use of Lupron Depot as Treatment

http://www.endocenter.org/pdf/PreDiagnosisGnRH.pdf

Use of Lupron Depot Prior to Surgical Diagnosis

You really need to have your disease excised, which confers the most successful and long-term relief of symptoms. See www.endometriosistreatment.org and www.centerforendo.com for info on excision and why it is superior to vaporization, ablation, medical therapies like Lupron, etc.

Pregnancy and Lupron are not cures for Endometriosis, nor is pregnancy a “treatment” that can be “prescribed” any more than menopause or hysterectomy can. There is no absolute cure, but physicians specializing in the disease who use modern concepts for treatment instead of old wive’s tales and biased literature from the manufacturer have higher and longer-term success rates than those who put their patients on the treatment merry go round over and over.

Don’t take my word for it…I also recommend speaking to people here:

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/erc

http://www.geocities.com/lupronfacts/facts.html

http://www.redflagsweekly.com/letters/letters5.htm

http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group/lupron/

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/LupronVictims/

For feedback on actual experiences.

Good luck and think long and hard about your options. You DO have choices and another doctor who has dedicated their life to treating only Endo can offer you the best resources.

Good luck!

Mary asks…

What are these weird pimple type things?

I have these weird pimples, they are a bit deeper than normal pimples and if you manage to squeeze them it comes out thicker than normal pus from normal pimples. But the things is, most are located on my chest where the hair is *Im 17*. When they first come on my chest they hurt although after a while they dont hurt, and its hard to squeeze them.
I Also have only a few located on the shaft of my penis. Although it only goes halfway. (There aint many)

I am 17, very hygenic and still a virgin.

admin answers:

Hi jus read your info … Its good that you are hygienic
The number one cause of acne is the production of sex hormones, known as androgen, that begins at puberty. This is why majority of acne sufferers are adolescents and teens. Hormones are responsible for then acne flare-ups during menstruation and pregnancy.
It is usually a bit hard to treat chest acne as it takes up a larger area, but then again it can easily be gotten rid of with the help of stronger acne treatment solutions as the skin is rather very soft and sensitive. Getting rid of chest acne requires just five very easy steps, which are:
Take a Shower
The first step that can be taken up to get rid of chest acne is in the shower!!! For this you would want to use a specifically prepared soap or body disinfectant to bathe the pretentious part on your chest. Good anti-acne ingredients such as Salicylic Acid can be found in the perfect chest acne treatments. But here you also need to make sure that you do not over rub or intensely scour your chest acne. Exfoliating can further annoy your previously goaded skin which can worsen your chest acne.
Another very important factor in getting rid of your acne is to wear loose-fitting clothing in breathable fabric all through the day. Necklines along with tight fitting collars should be avoided and materials such as cotton or linen should be used.
If u want more info goto http://acne-scars.we.bs/ also check the good skin clinic over there ..

Thanks bye tc …..

Ken asks…

What does pH balance have to do with Acne?

I heard this some toner balance the ph.

How important is that? What does it do? Does pH help prevent getting pimples?? what toner is good to balance it?

admin answers:

I did some research and talked to my doctor to find the most common causes of acne.

• Hormones: The number one cause of acne is the production of sex hormones, known as androgen, that begins at puberty. This is why majority of acne sufferers are adolescents and teens. Hormones are responsible for then acne flare-ups during menstruation and pregnancy.

• When the sebaceous gland is stimulated by androgens, it produces extra sebum. In its journey up the follicle toward the surface, the sebum mixes with common skin bacteria and dead skin cells that have been shed from the lining of the follicle. While this process is normal, the presence of extra sebum in the follicle increases the chances of clogging — and acne.

• Stress: can also cause the production of hormones, such as cortisol, which can aggravate acne. Stress brings upon different hormone levels. With hormone changes the body prompts the skins oil glands to enlarge, secreting more oil. Which causes white heads, black heads and pimples.

• Oily or heavy make up: Heavy make-up clogs the pores and oily make-ups add more oil, which only adds to the problem if oily skin already exists. Cosmetics, especially certain moisturizers, foundations and pomades contain lanolin, petrolatum, vegetable oils, butyl stearate, lauryl alcohol and oleic acid.

• Certain medications and steroids: Vitamins are good for your body, But an excess of vitamins B1, B6 and B12 can cause acne flare-ups. These vitamins are good for the skin, but avoid overuse.

• Diets: For some people, a diet that is high in refined carbohydrates and sugars can actually aggravate their acne.

• Over abrasive cleansing: Harsh exfoliators can damage skin and spread infections.

• Picking and squeezing: This can actually send the infection deeper into the skin and can cause scarring.

• Environmental irritants: such as high humidity and pollution. High humidity actually causes swelling of skin. Pollution is of course is a big cause for clogging your pores.

• Genes: Family members who are also acne sufferers. Acne is inherited and severe cases known as cystic acne usually come from heredity.

And…

What the skin needs is a product that clears pores and kills bacteria, thus preventing hair follicles from clogging and turning into acne. This is what you should be looking for if you want to get rid of those ugly acne.

Before trying any treatment, I suggest you read this informational source that listed the most effective acne treatments available:

Linda asks…

What is the best over the counter acne treatment?

I have moderate acne and have tried several things that haven’t helped much. I have very oily skin so I need something that can help with that but won’t dry out my skin too bad. Any suggestions?

admin answers:

Acne is at best a very unpleasant condition to live with, but there are steps you can take to try to improve it. The traditional route is to contact your doctor to see what they would recommend. But theses days many are bypassing the doctor and going straight to the drugstore.

But how do you decide what is the best over the counter acne treatment for you and what advice do you take? There is so much advertising for different products that it is hard to know which is the best for you. Probably the first step to take in deciding, is whether you want to use a traditional medical treatment, or a one of the growing number of natural health products and remedies.

There are a growing number of natural products, as the trend towards a more holistic type of lifestyle becomes more popular. These products can be very good, but it is probably worth doing a little research so that you are quite clear about what you are buying and what it is supposed to do for your skin.

Traditional medical treatments are much more straightforward and many of the most popular contain salycic acid or benzoyl peroxide. If you prefer to go for the natural products, there are many to choose from, such as tea tree oil, aloe vera and Vitamin E. It is difficult to say which is the best over the counter acne treatment, as different products will suit different people. Most products whether natural or traditional, work by drying the skin to prevent excess oil building up and leading to acne.

Rather than buying the product that looks the best in the shop, it is usually best to ask the pharmacist for advice on which is the best over the counter acne treatment. They usually have extensive experience in dealing with this and are likely to know the products that work. There is a wide range to choose from and getting advice, is probably a good idea.

Even though you may have been very careful to buy the best over the counter acne treatment, it is possible that it is not suitable for your skin. If after trying a new treatment you experience any pain or discomfort it is best to check with your doctor. There are many treatments available and it is a good idea to get some good advice as to which is the best for your skin type, before you buy.

Laura asks…

What is the best drugstore facial cleanser for oily/combination skin?

I have oily skin but it also gets dry during the winter, which then causes more acne because my skin tries to produce more oil. I have been breaking out lately with sore pimples and blackheads around my nose. I just finished a bottle of St. Ives green tea clearing complexion. Im considering going to a dermatologist but first I want to try to solve this on my own. ANY ADVISE IS WELCOME! (: thank you!

Thomas asks…

I am bipolar and marijuana helps for a while What should i do??

contact me for more information

admin answers:

Everyone here obviously does not understand the condition because they have not been through it, I am the exception. Addiction is the norm for bipolars, although no-where did he state that in his question, I assume he emailed these people this information, otherwise they are just jumping to conclusions.
It will be best for you to cut back and eventually stop the marijuana. This is a article I wrote for other bipolars, on YA and privately, which I am told has shown significant improvement, and I am sure if they persevere and continue the regime, they will be cured in 6-12months.
==================================================
Curing Bipolar Disorder

‘They [the medical establishment] hate that word [cure], like the devil hates holy water’
Dr. Royal Raymond Rife
===============================================
Intestinal Dysbiosis/Candida Overgrowth

‘All diseases begin in the gut’ Hippocrates 460-370BC

Mental illness starts not in the Brain but the Gut. Do you have digestive problems like colic, bloating, flatulence, diarrhoea, constipation, and malnourishment {are you very skinny and find it difficult to put on weight?}, and do you have a white/yellow-coating on your tongue? Do you suffer from frequent headaches, mood swings, depression, fatigue, and other symptoms related to ‘candida overgrowth?’

Read ‘Gut And Psychology Syndrome’ By. Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride MD, NMedSci{neurology}, MMedSci{nutrition}
This doctor, who has a clinic in Cambridge for treating mental illnesses like Autism, Dyspraxia, Dyslexia, ADD/ADHD, Depression, Schizophrenia, and Bipolar Disorder. Her son suffered from Autism, she found the cure and the root cause, and believes that all mental illness can be cured.

I found that my bipolar disorder was caused or worsened by Candida overgrowth or Candida Related Complex. You should consult a Naturopathic Doctor {not a homeopath, they’re different}, a Nutritionist that has treated Bipolar disorder before, and an orthomolecular medicine doctor.

Candida thrive on sugar, so Cut out all sugar, unstable/imbalanced blood sugar levels can cause depression and hyperactivity, replace table sugar with Xylitol {much more healthier and beneficial and tastes the same in the same portions! You wont notice too much of a difference, don’t go near NutraSweet or Aspartame, monosodium glutamate – avoid like the plague}.Cut out stimulants like caffeine, and soda soft drinks.

S. Boulardii is a good probiotic that flushes out candida from the body. Look into Kefir Making, this home-made free probiotic drink in itself will bring you much improvement in your mental health and well being, all you need is Kefir Grains to get started, google ‘Kefir Making’ and look at Doms Kefir Making website, it tells you everything you want/need to know.

================================================
Fasting & Detoxification

Do a detox fast a 3-day apple fast, only red/golden delicious apples, and fresh water, along with coffee enema’s, this is all stated in ‘Cure your acne in 3 days’ but it works great for bipolar disorder, most BP’s have bad skin according to one conventional website i was reading. This will help rid your body of the accumulated toxins affecting your brain, and kill a lot of Candida Yeast.

See the outlined 3-day fast here, although for acne, it will work for bipolar disorder also:

http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index;_ylt=ApSkpEDAvDkxo2PRN3DFZ7Tty6IX;_ylv=3?qid=20080709071408AAIc9x0&show=7#profile-info-D0W5kyt1aa

Recent studies have shown that Prozac {a popular antidepressant} has anti-fungal/candida properties, and inhibits its growth, this is due to Serotonin. Further, Sodium Valporate {used as a mood stabiliser} has been shown to stop the growth of harmful pathogenic microorganisms/worms in the gut. This is very interesting findings, as it supports that mental illness is due to problems in the gut or intestinal dysbiosis.

Go on the anti-candida diet. Source: ‘The Yeast Connection’ Book

Drink Alkali water, add 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda to every litre of purified water you drink, this will prevent disease and reduce the growth of Candida. Source: Mr X Acne e-book

Look also into Gerson Therapy/Juicing, this has cured many diseases, not just cancer, it will prevent/cure mental illness.
Start this asap, read ‘A Cancer Therapy’ by Dr. Max Gerson
===============================================
Correcting Nutritional Deficiencies

-Nordic Naturals Ultimate Omega 3 supplements or Carlson’s Brand 2-3g per day has been shown in scientific studies to reduce manic-depression significantly. Strictly, the brands mentioned as they are pure pharmaceutical grade, and are used in clinical trials, plus the Carlson’s Brand has added fat-soluble vitamins.
Google it to see the research with omega 3 and its remarkable effects on mental illness, yet more evidence that mental illness is due to nutritional deficiencies, which has been aggravated by Candida overgrowth/Intestinal Dysbiosis.

-EM Power Plus + by TrueHope, has been shown to be very effective, look at the testimonies on mcmillans BiPolar website. Personally i have not used this, as my current nutrition programs works great.

-A multivitamin/ mineral supplement in a bioavailable/chelated form, E.g . Higher Nature brand, Mineral brand

SAMe – 400mg per day, this will boost your energy levels. And has been called the ‘instant antidepressant’, please have the histamine blood test done with the help of a mental-health orientated nutritionist, before taking this. If you are high-histamine {google it}, you will need to take methionine 1000-2000mg per day.

===============================================
Getting to the ‘Cause’ of mental illness

Get blood tests, to test for:

- *Histamine {high histamine is the cause of many bipolar type symptoms, highly recommend this test}

-Nutritional deficiencies/Nutritional profile.

- Adrenal exhaustion,

- *Homocysteine,

- *Pyroluria, http://www.kryptopyrrole.com/

- *Allergies, Allergies to certain foods can cause psychological problmes/mental instability, the most common offenders are Milk, Gluten, Egg, in that order, try eliminating each one for atleast 72hours and see how you feel.

- *Candida Comprehensive Stool test, or D-Mannitol Urine Test {best and most accurate, bu hard to find a lab/scientist that does this, as its new}

- Thyroid disorders, including Wilson’s Thyroid disorder, although this involves monitoring youe body temperature immediately on waking, I think it should be above 97.5F, I am not sure, check this first/research.

-Heavy Metal Toxicity, Ever heard some on say his as ‘Mad as a Shoe Maker’, well shoe makers used to use harmful chemicals like mercury, lead which made them go mad. Heavy metals can accumulate in the body as it is in water{from the pipes}, metal cookware, ect. Which can also cause Alzheimzers disease, which some psychiatrists are now saying is a type of bipolar disorder.

*Starred tests are HIGHLY reccommended, do these as a minimum.

Your nutritionist can arrange these test through a local lab, or you could…Biolab in London does this.

===============================================
The Cure for Mental illness was Found Decades Ago!!!

Read Carl Pfeiffer’s PhD book ‘Nutrition and Mental Illness’, he was a pioneer with orthomolecular medicine and cured many people of bipolar disorder.
The Brain Bio Centre in London continues his work, as does the one in Princeton US, although it is very expensive. And in my opinion you can recover and save the money if you read and search for the knowledge.

Dr. Carl Pfieffer MD PhD cured bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, depression, OCD and many other mental illnesses, 30 years ago, he used mega doses of bitamins/mineral to cure the patient, he claimed Schizophrenics had a genetic predisposition to be dificient of niacin. And Bipolars were High Histamine, which can be reduced by taking Vitamin C 1000 – 2000mg as Magnesium Ascorbate and L-Methionine amino acid supplement.

Exercise as much as you can! Especially in the morning, 30mins per day minimum, or Yoga, swimming, meditation, do something relaxing.
Take Coenzyme Q10 30mg to boost energy levels, when you feel tired
===============================================
Knowledge is Power

Watch the videos on youtube.com, type in ‘psychetruth’ and watch the ‘Nutrition by Natalie’ videos especially. {she’s cute}

Take 3mg melatonin at night if you are having sleep problems. Since the circadian clock of bipolar in usually out of synch. If this is the case, watch the sunrise, and set, for 30seconds-5minutes, this will help synchronise your clock and sleep patterns to normality.
===============================================
Why does my Doctor/Psychiatrist not know this?

Conventional medicine is crap at treating mental illness, alternative medicine has the answers. Just try it out first, regardless of what your Dr. Will tell you. Just try it.

Psychiatrists make a lot of money from chronic life long mental illnesses, which they claim is genetic and incurable, which is a load of BS. Further drug companies make a lot of money from you; since most mental illness cannot be cured {according to the Doctors, since they are merely repeating what they learnt at med school} you have to stay on medication for a life-time {as maintenance}

Psychiatrists examine mental illness from various angles, although they are helpful, they do not address the cause of chronic mental illnesses like BP disorder. Psychiatrists will look at genetics, childhood experiences, and psychological influences, the last thing they will consider looking at is your digestive system. Strange that, since medical history gives plenty of examples where severe psychiatric conditions were cured simply by ‘cleaning ou

How to clear pimples?

I’m just a grade 6 student who have lots of pimples and I’m really shy to show my face on public. I need your answer it will help very much. thanks!

admin answers:

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(:

http://m.wikihow.com/Avoid-Acne

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…

Http://m.wikihow.com/Make-Your-Own-Acne-Treatment

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!

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 :)

Steven asks…

can someone tell me about a Acne treatment?

I was wondering about MaryKay acne-fighters kit does it work good could you tell me about your experience with it <3 Thank You

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!

You can’t go wrong with washing your face… Of course, this doesn’t always help those severe cases.

The BEST treatment is prevention! My answer is already pretty long, so here is a good link(:

http://m.wikihow.com/Avoid-Acne

I always wash my pillow cases every week or so. It really helps!

I recommend a good, non-comedogenic facewash, so it won’t cause any other breakouts.

Avoid putting things on your face with a scent, such as hand lotion. It wil most likely cause more breakouts. Again, use non-comedogenic products.

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…

Http://m.wikihow.com/Make-Your-Own-Acne-Treatment

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!

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

Treatments For Acne Under The Skin

James asks…

What can i do for break outs on my cheeks and chest?

Does vitamin E help? They are the ones that are under the skin & are very painful. Any tips would be nice. I’ve already gone to a dermatologist, tried over the counter products and it hasn’t worked.

admin answers:

First of all the acne you probably have are cystic, this is caused by bacteria and second Vitamin E probably isn’t good for active pimples, but they are good for acne marks and scars. If you have lots of pimples it is best to avoid scrubs because they can actually make them irritated and make them worse which can also cause you to break out more, you should only use a scrub if you have active pimples on the surface. Scrubs are usually good for blackheads, but so are masks so try using a detoxify mask 1-2 a week no more, over exfoliating can make your skin more sensitive to products and also make you breakout more. Use a oil free cleanser with 2% Salicylic acid in it (I used the Neutrogena oil free acne wash-recommended by my derm) and never scrub hard which can irritate the skin and spread bacteria, with that said buy a antibacterial treatment. Tea tree oil is great but make sure you dilute it first (the way i do it is mix couple of drops of the tea tree oil and some aloe vera, but make sure you start low because tea tree oil is really strong) Aloe Vera is great because it moisturize and also help prevent future breakouts . Another thing in mind is that if it is still getting worse you might want to go see a dermatologist again maybe a different one or try asking for a different regimen, just keep in mind every skin is different and some may or may not work for you so it might take a couple of regimens to help your skin. Also be patient with the product that your dermatologist prescribed for you, this will take some time and you might even get initial breakouts (that is because the product is working is bringing all the acne up to the surface so you can get rid of it easier) For me i had initial break out for the first 2-3 weeks but i kept with it because i’ve been doing some research on it and people were going through the same thing i was, and i didn’t get my results until 4 months almost 5! (which cleared most of them up) 4 month of waiting is totally worth it than having to keep switching and sticking with my acne for longer. So stick with it for at least 4 months and see what happens. Hope this is helpful and i wish you the best. :]

Thomas asks…

What would you recommend to remove acne scars and dents?

Last summer I had a bad acne flare up. I took accutane and it caused my acne to worsen the worst its ever been. It caused me to develops little indents on my face. But they aren’t too deep, the dents are on the sides of my face. I’m going to go to my dermatologist but I want outside advice before I make my choice on what to do. My acne is under control right now, its been for months. What would you recommend to me? I want a normal looking face again. I’m assuming girls find it unattractive.
I just want to make it clear that I have my skin under control right now. What I want to know is what works to remove scars and dents from the acne I used to have.

admin answers:

Chemical peels by a dermatologist can help as can fractal laser treatments; less helpful is the microdermabrasion. All these work by dissolving off the top layers of skin so your skin is much smoother. These are much more permanent than other treatments.

Michael asks…

What is the best fast working acne treatment?

I have moderate acne/pimples. I would like to get rid of most of my acne before I go back to school (which is like a month and a half from now). I have tried acne free, and tons of other systems and they have not helped to much. I will be willing to spend between $25–$35 per month for something that works. If anybody knows anything that you think would work for me that would be great! Thanks!

Hey, theres multiple ways to help reduce/ get rid of acne.

1. First, while the old myth that fried foods and chocolate has been disproved, eating right and having good nutrition helps the body and strengthens the immune system, so proper diet is still recommended. Eating whole grains, vegetables, lean meats, fruits and only limited dairy products can help. Also made sure that you are getting enough vitamins and minerals in your diet. It might be necessary take a good quality vitamin supplement. Along with a healthy diet, getting plenty of exercise will go a long way to good health in general and a healthy immune system. Moderate amounts of exercise three times a week will improve health. Avoiding smoking, alcohol and dangerous drugs is a given.

2. Next, it is important to practice proper hygiene. There is an old myth that says acne comes from bad hygiene, and that is not true, but acne will certainly take advantage of chances to grow. One of the causes of acne is a bacterium on and under the skin. Moderate washing will help. Also exfoliating with a mild over the counter exfoliate helps many people.

3. Next, take a look at the topical antibiotics and antibacterial agents available in many of the over the counter medications and washes sold to help acne. The good ones may contain Benzoyl peroxide, the most common acne treatment available without a doctor’s prescription. It kills the bacteria and the pimples do not develop a resistance to the medication. For this reason Benzoyl peroxide will not loose its effectiveness in fighting and killing bacteria. If using it, begin with a low concentration and work up. Be sure when you buy it that it is non-comedogenic, which means that the medication will not clog the pores. If you are into natural remedies, tea tree oil is a popular natural remedy that works the same way Benzoyl peroxide works, but is less irritating to the skin.

4. Another over the counter acne remedy that works and is popular is salicylic acid. Salicylic acid unplugs the pores and helps to get rid of dead skin cells, which attract bacteria and make acne worse. There are many good over the counter remedies available that contain salicylic acid and it is good to use it in conjunction with Benzoyl peroxide. The two make a good two-fisted team.

5. Sulfur works in many ways like Benzoyl peroxide. It is not as widely used, however, it is believed to be not quite as effective. However, if for some reason you cannot use tea tree oil or Benzoyl peroxide, the by all means give sulfur a try.

6. Glycolic acid is another ingredient that works. It gets rid of dead skin and it stimulates the production of new cells, which many believe will help unclog pores.

I’ve personally used Proactive and had wonderful results, HOWEVER once you start using these products, you’re going to be depending on them. (If you stop using it, you can break out again).

Acne Treatments

Ken asks…

What do ya’ll think of Proactive or Murad acne treatment?

If you’ve used either or both of these acne treatments, which one works best/do they work at all?

admin answers:

I’ve been in that situation and there is really nothing you can do about it. There are things you can do to try to reduce the blemishes and get rid of acne/pimples temporarily but you will always be finding yourself cleaning your face or your body depending on where it’s at.

I mean of course your acne should go away eventually but for some this is the case their whole life.

I’m 29 years old and have been suffering from these little pests since I was a teenager. I tried all sorts of face washes from the local grocery store and what not, but nothing seemed to work. If anything it would just make my skin dry and itchy.

Literally the best acne face wash I’ve ever used has been this stuff called clearpores. It has got rid of the acne to quickest and has been a success ever since I got it. It’s unique cause of it’s herbal supplement you take a long with it that helps your skin from the inside out. I saved money on it at skincleansingsystem dot com at the time which was helpful.

You should really look into this stuff and if you can to assure the best results, get the 3 month supply because if it doesn’t work it will still save you butt on the return policy.

Well good luck and best wishes.

Mary asks…
