Donald asks…

What happens if I store an acne treatment at high temperature?

My acne treatment states I should not store it above 25°C. Unfortunately, I left it in my car for three hours at high temperature. Does that solution remain effective and/or safe to use after high temperature exposure?

Im 13 and i have marks from a pimple being pop i cant it help at times so i pop it and then i have a mark left. It would be really nice if yall cant help me with this Thanks =]

admin answers:

Hi Nina,

It looks like a lot of people still don’t know how bad chemicals and scrubs are for acne scarring. Scrubs do too much scratching at your sores and chemical products dry your skin out which is the main cause for all scars…

I found this last year and my skin has been really healthy ever since:

http://www.bestcureforacne.com/acnefreein3daysreview.php

This also tells you exactly how to get rid of your acne scars after it tells you how to get rid of your acne. Since you’re 13 ask your mom or dad to get it for you, they’ll never have to buy you anymore acne products again :o p

Good Luck!

Robert asks…

How to get rid of chest acne fast?

I’m going on holiday to Jamaica soon and most woman’s clothing are low cut so will reveal my chest. And I have these horrible spots, it’s embarrassing really. I really need to get rid of them fast. I am currently taking tetralysal (lymecycline) tablets and using differin cream but I don’t really see any improvements, I know the sun in jamaica will help but the thing is I don’t want to go to Jamaica with them. Any Suggestions?

admin answers:

Wash your chest with a mild water-based cleanser once or twice daily and avoid oil-based cosmetic products. You can also exfoliate the area with a glove to cleanse it deeper, although don’t rub to hard or you could make the acne worse.

Also maintain a healthy lifestyle to get rid of it naturally.

You can conceal the acne using a layer of salicylic acid concealer, followed by oil-free foundation and then non-comedogenic powder.

Hello

There are some specific methods that can help you to get rid or at least reduce your acne.
Check these helpful methods that helped me to get rid of my acne:

Drink water

Drink plenty of water every day. Aim to drink at least two liters of still mineral water. If the skin becomes dehydrated, dead skin cells are not effectively shed, which can lead to blocked pores and further acne.

Sunshine and fresh air

Sunshine stimulates the creation of vitamin D in your body – an important vitamin for healthy skin. A little bit of fresh air and sunshine every day will also reduce your stress and increase oxygen to your skin. Even when it’s overcast, the sun’s rays reach us, so try to take a light walk outside every day.

Reduce the intake of sugar and refined carbohydrates

New research pointing the finger at diet – eating refined carbohydrates (white bread, pasta, rice, flour etc) and sugar leads to a surge in insulin and an insulin-like growth factor called IGF-1. This in turn leads to an excess of male hormones, which encourage the skin to excrete large amounts of sebum. This grease-like substance encourages the growth of bacteria responsible for acne.

Refined carbs/sugar = more insulin = more hormones = more sebum (oil) = more bacteria = more acne

Your bed sheets

Keep the bed sheets clean. Wash your pillow case on a regular schedule to reduce the transfer of our natural body oils.

Wash your face

Wash your face just one time a day. Don’t over wash , because that will cause only more production of oil on your skin. Another option is to use very gentle cleansers for normal skin that don’t dehydrate the skin and wash twice a day.

Anyhow, don’t go out and buy those “acne free in one night” pills that you can find anywhere online, they just don’t work and you will waste hundreds of dollars for nothing.

Why not? Well, because it takes time to get rid of acne and you will need at least one week to see any noticeable results. There is absolutely no way to get rid of your acne in only one day.

If you really want to cure your acne there are two recommended ways that should combined together (if you can afford it) for best results.

Firstly and more important in my opinion and experience, you must learn how you should fix the internal problem that’s causing your acne, not just masking the symptoms or getting relief.
There are only few good Ebooks and acne cure programs that can teach you exactly how to treat your acne from the inside.

Where medicine has failed them the authors have done their own research and found a way to overcome acne. In their guides they share their great knowledge with other acne sufferers. In any case, be very careful because many of them are pure crap with little value.

Check this article for useful information about very known and popular program that can help you to cure your acne naturally, fast and safely:

http://www.squidoo.com/Acne-Free-In-3-Days-System

The second thing that you need to do is to get good acne skin product that will be suitable for your skin.
There are many acne skin care products available in the market in these days and it’s not easy to choose the product that will give you the best results.
When choosing your product make sure to check that you get at least 2 months full guarantee. Some of the big names in the industry are:
ClearPores, Acuzine, Acnezine, Proactiv, Vilante and some others.
In my experience Clearpores cleansing system work very well. Check this website to learn a lot more about this great system:

Don’t give up, acne is something that can be cure, good luck…

David asks…

What is the best way to treat acne scars?

My girlfriend has acne scars on her cheeks which really bothers her. What are the best topical creams or treatments to get rid of the scarring. The scars are basically dark red marks left on her skin by the spots. She doesn’t want to use laser treatment she just wants to use a natural remedy if there is one.

admin answers:

The good news is that over time these scars will fade on their own, however there are a couple of things she can do to make them go faster.

The best thing to help to resurface the skin, and encourage fresh new skin to appear is to exfoliate – for best results a microdermabrasion scrub would be best – these are usually used 2 – 3 times a week. She will notice immediately after the first use how soft her skin feels, and it won’t be long before she sees a noticeable improvement in her skin. (Another good thing about these scrubs is that they encourage the skin to remain youthful).

As for something to use on her skin, bio oil is really good for scars. However, a less commercial solution and in my opinion far superior alternative is cold pressed virgin organic coconut oil. This is also far more cost effective. She could just use a little before bed (a little goes a long way). Coconut oil also has loads of health benefits when you cook with it, and it will also help to improve her skin if she eats it.

Nancy asks…

Can anyone recommend a good treatment for acne scars?

I am not expecting them to disappear completely, but I would not mind at least defeating the pink spots now that acne is over….

Has anyone been successful in lessening acne scars permanently, and if yes, can you recommend a way?

admin answers:

The Mederma brand has worked well for me for scars on various places on my body, it’s a little pricey but give it a shot.
Also, if you have money to invest, check out the Mary Kay microdermabrasion skincare set. Over time it’ll help those scars fade by getting rid of “bad” skin :)

Get Rid Of Acne Scars Naturally

Jenny asks…

Whats the best ways to get rid of acne scars?

I have really bad acne scars and ive heard of all the home remedies and those didnt work. I mean can Dove or Dial soap help? Just any suggestions would be great! Thank you

admin answers:

It depends on what type of acne scars you have: either the skin indentations / pits or the dark maroon discolorations.

In either case, exfoliating is very beneficial because it helps to remove the top dead layer of skin gradually. But, be careful not to exfoliate too often or too hard as this will only damage your skin further. This all depends on your skin type.
Dry or sensitive skin – once per week
Oily or combination skin – 3-5 times per week
Normal skin – Every day

If you have the dark maroon discolorations, these are called macules and the good news is that these can fade over time. Sometimes they heal quickly but sometimes they can take a while because the blood vessels that were there slowly die off. The best thing to do is to allow your skin the time to heal from acne so that you don’t get further scarring. If your acne issues are now gone, this is good news. But, if you still deal with acne (even occassionally), you’ll want to take steps to keep it from turning into the scars so your skin can heal.

Here’s what I would suggest:
First, make sure you cleanse your body at least once a day and wash your face twice a day – once in the morning and once at night. Don’t overdo it here (sometimes people shower more often thinking they’ll get rid of the acne by washing it away – you can actually make things worse if you strip away too much of your natural oils because your skin will respond with making more oil – causing more acne.) If, however, you sweat a lot, you may want to wash your skin again (even if it’s just with a wash cloth) – for instance, after playing sports, etc. Wash with a cleanser that YOUR skin responds to. But, do not choose a cleanser that has alcohol in it (as this also causes your skin to dry out and cause more acne). Also, avoid anything with fragrance – this will irritate your skin. Use a gentle cleanser – glycerin based is what I recommend. Glycerin is a natural humectant which means that it naturally draws moisture to your skin (which will help for the dryness). Whatever you choose, make sure it does not have fragrance in it or alcohol. The fragrance will irritate your sensitive skin and make you break out. The alcohol will dry you out – which actually makes you break out (the more you dry out your skin, the more you will break out because your skin will compensate by making more oil – causing more breakouts!) A balance is required here – so watch the ingredients. A simple glycerin soap (no frills or fancy stuff) will do you wonders. Remember, your first step is to cleanse your skin – get rid of the dirt and oil. Simple.

Next, exfoliate on a regular basis! Exfoliating your skin will help remove dead skin cells that get trapped because of too much sebum (oil) on your skin – causing pores to get clogged…thus forming acne. Follow the guide above on how often to exfoliate based on your skin type. Don’t overdo it. You’ll make it worse.

If you have a moisturizer you like and works for you, use it after exfoliating. Once again, careful of the ingredients. If you don’t have one, splash your face with some cool water after you exfoliate and pat dry but leave skin a little moist.

Everyone’s skin is different and everyone responds differently to different treatments. As long as you stay consistent with your skin care regimen and listen to your skin while using the tips above, you will find what works for you and I think you’ll soon see a noticeable improvement in your acne scars (or lack thereof). Good luck!!

Maria asks…

How do you get rid of acne scars?

i have some acne scars, not too much, but some around my lower cheeks/ chin.
is it even curable naturally or do you need professional treatment. if it can be treated without professional help do you have any tips? for example some at home facial recipe’s or anything. thanks.

admin answers:

Here are some home made remedies for acne in general! : My favorite (and the best working one) has to do with asprine. You get 6 asprine in a small container, like a mini bowl or a lid to something. Add like 3 drops of hot water, then pound it into a paste. DO NOT ADD MORE WATER!!!!!! If you add more water it drips and you get asprin in your eye- owch! Then apply your paste all over your skin, pretty thick, if you have oily skin just apply the rest (ther’ll be leftovers) in a thin layer all over your skin; this’ll dry it out without causing any damage!!!! If you don’t have asprine, here’s another great one: Oatmeal!!!!!! Make a bowl of oatmeal as if you were going to make it… PUT NO SUGAR IN IT!!!!!!!!! If it has sugar it’ll seriously kill your face!!! Then apply it to your face, heaping it onto your forhead I usually leave it until it starts falling off, so it could be awhile! THis next one is NOT for sensative skin- I learned the hard way! YOu delute 1/4 a cup of vinager with 3/4 a cup of water. Leave a cotton ball in it for 3 mins and then rub it all over your face, leave that on for 15 mins, then wash off. If you’re desperate, rub all over face and leave on over night, but that’s kinda risky! This one’s been working for me for a looooong time; leave ice on the pimple for 10 mins every 4 hours! You can make an ice face mask! Speaking of face masks, the’ll really help you!!! My favorite is a face peel, which is where you
Steep your teas separately in half a cup of hot water for each. Squeeze the teabags and set aside about an ounce from each cup of tea.
2
Prepare the cucumber by blending it in the food processor until it is the consistency of a paste. Strain the mixture though a strainer and put the juice aside to use in the rest of the recipe.
3
Heat the tea in a small saucepan. Add the gelatin and stir until the gelatin dissolves.
4
Remove the mixture from the heat and pour it into the glass or ceramic bowl. Add the cucumber juice and aloe vera gel. Mix well.
5
Chill the bowl in the refrigerator until the mixture begins to thicken. This step will take about half an hour.
6
Apply the facial peel to your face and leave mask on for 15 minutes. Peel the mask off after it dries. Use warm water and a washcloth to remove the peel completely.

GOOD LUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh! I also use:
Face, morning: Sea Breeze Deep clean astrigent
Face, Night: Deep Clean cream cleanser, by Neutrogena,
Body: SHOWER!: Japanese Cherry blossom shower gel from bath and bodyworks!!!!

Treatments For Acne Vulgaris

Helen asks…

How long does it take for a pimple to form?

I have heard different things and I was wondering if someone knows. Before the pimple is visible on my face, how long before that does the process start deep inside?

admin answers:

Here is a link to webmd it has all the basic info on pimples……

This site has lots of links.

Hope this answers your questions.

Richard asks…

Is HONEY good for a natural treatment of acne?

s Honey a good treatment? I just found a Youtube video talking about honey and how it could be used to cleanse skin and prevent, or cure acne.

I want to know if this is just… utter crap, or if this actually helps.

please respond quickly.

admin answers:

Honey can be used on cuts and sores which will not heal. Medical professionals know this. However, on your face? Well, it will clog your pores and probably cause breakouts. For pimples which have already been created you don’t need honey. There are other products because pimples heal quite quickly.

Don’t put masks on your face if you have acne. That’s just going to aggrevate whatever problem you have. When it comes to acne; keep it simple.

Use a simple cleanser–NOT SOAP. Don’t over-dry your skin with some acne cleanser because your face will react by producing MORE OIL! Yep, that’s right. Over-dry your skin with products and you’ll end up making your acne worse!

I learned this from my dermatologist who has a PhD on top of having an MD.

She taught me to use just a couple of very basic, non expensive products.

1. Cetaphil Cleanser.

2. Benzoyl Peroxide.

3. Moisturizer.

4. Sunscreen.

5. Mild retinoid gel (Differen a prescription product) to prevent blackheads.

6. Tetracycline for real trouble (another prescription product).

And, she gave the rationale for use of each.

Cetaphil is a mild cleanser which sets your skin at the correct pH. You can get at any grocery or drustore. It is not expensive and when I switched to this my skin changed dramatically. No more dry, itchy red skin. It calmed down.

Benzoyl Peroxide is a drying/antiseptic agent which can be used directly on pimples or mixed up with a moisturizer to help with slight over-all daily oililness of skin. Experiment. It can over-dry skin if too much is applied to large patches so best to combine with moisturizer.

Sunscreen. Enlarged pores are caused by exposure to the sun. Once enlarged they are nearly impossible to reduce. Makeup may hide, but makeup causes pores to also get clogged, so sunscreen is best weopon against aging and enlarged pores. Neutrogena makes a few good ones, especially one with a light tinting which doubles as a makeup.

Differen–a prescription retinoid product which is applied only at night and over the course of a month or more begins to gently exfoiliate skin and newer skin begins to come to the surface. This reduces blackheads in addition to better looking skin and less pimples. Prescription.

Tetrocycline. By prescription and reduces the bacteria in skin which causes acne. Drawbacks are be careful about going out into sun. Cannot eat one hour before taking or 30 minutes after taking.

Accutane is only for very serious acne and not at all easy to get from dermatologist because can cause depression, it affects oil secretion so seriously dry skin can result. Consider only if you have really bad acne, which is aka acne vulgaris.

Toothpaste is a cleanser and should not be left on ones delicate face. This is a crazy myth continually being posted here on Y.A. Avoid toothpaste on your face. If the menthol in toothpaste burns to keep in your mouth for very long, imagine what it can do to your face while you are sleeping all night! OUCH!

If you must use makeup then use a mineral makeup. It is less likely to clog pores than a cream-based or liquid makeup, plus it really will look better. The less the better….in the short and long run.

Daniel asks…

Acne Treatments For Oily Skin

Michael asks…

How can I keep my skin clear?

Ive had some break outs on my forhead for a while, and they have finally cleared up, I do not have oily skin, its pretty normal, but at the momment it is a little dry due to the acne treatment. The break outs werent bad at all, but were tuff to get rid of. I just want to know how to keep them away without having to always use the acne treatment.

admin answers:

Sometimes consistently clear skin requires you to build your skin’s resistance to oils again by incorporating moisturization into your skin regime. When you get rid of pimples, you dry out your skin to a certain extent. So, when that skin becomes too dry, it overproduces sebum oil, which then collects bacteria and dirt, which then leads to another round of breakouts, which then requires you to dry the breakouts out again…etc. Vicious cycle. So what I suggest is slowly wean your skin off it. At night, wash your face with a gentle skin cleanser like cetaphil, and moisturize with Cetaphil moisturizing cream (or moisturizing lotion if the cream feels to heavy). Once the lotion dries, then you can use acne treatment over the lotion. In the morning, exfoliate with a salicylic acid product like Biore Pore Unclogging Scrub, and after apply Neutrogena ultra sheer sunscreen in order to seal in the pores and prevent sun-induced inflammation.

Once your breakouts are consistently at bay while using the moisturizer, try not using the acne treatment, as your skin will no longer be dependent on it to keep breakouts down.

Hope this helps! :)

Susan asks…

What skincare regimen should I use on my face?

I am 27 years old and I’m lost. When I was younger, I had terribly oily skin and bad acne so I was always using acne treatments. Now, the treatments that I used to use are severely drying to my skin. I tried a different system that is for normal skin and although it made my skin look beautiful and glowing, it made me break out! I’m stuck and I don’t know what to do with my sensitive, prone to breakout skin!

Get Rid Of Acne Fast Overnight

Richard asks…

How do I get rid of acne with any skin products?

I have acne and it embrassing.

admin answers:

Hello,

How to Get Rid of Acne:

Lemon Juice
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.

Toothpaste
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
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.

Egg Mask
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

Tea Tree Oil: This natural oil is also very effective to clear acne scars fast but make sure to purchase pure tea tree oil from a reliable source. This approach, that involves applying 2-3 drops of tea tree oil on the scar, has proven beneficial to clear the scars.

Honey: Usage of honey is yet another way to erase those unsightly marks. However, before you use this natural remedy, exfoliating the skin is very important. Use of exfoliating brush removes the dead cells that have accumulated on the scars. Applying honey after gentle exfoliation ensures successful removal of acne scars at the earliest.

So, after you gently exfoliate the affected area for around 2-3 minutes, take Manuka honey and spread it on the skin showing scars. Once, you have applied it properly, let it remain for 20 minutes. Then rinse your face using warm water and natural soap. Follow this skin care regimen for about a month and you will definitely notice healthy glowing skin free from acne scars.

Vitamin E: Vitamin E tops the list of nutrients when it comes to overall well-being of the skin. The nutrient protects the skin from the ravaging effects of free radicals. Hence, it is no surprising that topical use of vitamin E lotion can work wonders to eliminate acne scars. Application of vitamin E lotion twice daily that does not contain any mineral oil can definitely lead to substantial reduction of acne scars. Instead of lotion, one may use vitamin E oil and then leave it on the face for 15 minutes. You are then expected to wash your face with a mild cleanser.

Pureed Fruit: Pureed fruits like apple and pineapple are full of ascorbic acid, an important ingredient of many skin care products. Ascorbic acid has shown to be beneficial in lightening acne scars and improving the look of the skin. Gently rub the puree of pineapple or apple on the face. Allow it to settle and do not remove it for 15 minutes. You can then wash it off with warm water.

Lemon Juice: Daily application of fresh lemon juice (3-4 drops) on the acne scars can also help to clear this skin problem as early as possible. For severe acne scars, application of lemon juice may only lighten the scar, and might not remove it entirely.

Here’s the problem. Since acne is a medical condition there is NO product that will cure it overnight. It will take time to go away if you have the right skin routine. You need to have patience and do this for your skin routine.
- Wash your face every morning and night
- After you wash your face use a moisturizer
- Exfoliate every other day
- In the shower wash your face after you use conditioner
- After you have worked out and your all sweaty wash your face or take a shower
- Don’t pick, pop, touch, or scratch your acne or face! Even if its a white/black head!
- Dab your face with a towel after you have washed it, don’t rub!
- Go to your doctor and get medication because acne is a medical condition.
- once you get your medication read the directions and do what it says!
- Have patience. It will take a while before you see results! Anything that works will take time
But remember everyone’s diffrent!
That’s what I do, hope this helps :)
