So my cousin has bad acne, and I used to too (we got crappy skin genes) until I started using OXY’s products. They are amazing and have gotten rid of all my acne, and fast!
My problem is, is that I don’t know how to tell my cousin about this brand of products without sounding like, “I notice your acne!” Know what I mean?
How can I bring it up to her without hurting her feelings?
If your cousin doesn’t ask you what you used to improve your skin, keep your mouth shut.
I know you want to be helpful but this is something you should not broach unless you are asked for your advice.
I have bad acne-it’s genetic and really sensitive skin to begin with-bad combination. nothing works. I don’t wear any foundation/concealer, i don’t pop zits, i moisturize, i wash my face twice a day. i’ve tried sever different soaps-nothing gets rid of my acne. I heard cucumbers work but are their any other household items that will get rid of my acne?
This may sound digusting but my mom suggest urine to me and it sometimes works. Also less disgusting orange juice. She says the acid in both items helps kill them.

I have african american skin and I have pimples on my chin and i don’t know why. I change my pillowcases every week and i don’t touch my face at all, so I don’t know how people think its a habit. What are some acne removal face washes that get rid of them. Oh, I have normal- oily (nose) skin.
You have acne because of your hormones. The other stuff (not changing pillow cases or picking at your skin just makes it worse).
I find that non-ance cleansers work best. I know that sounds backwards, but that’s what finally worked for me. I just started using the normal options instead of the “acne” options. I think the acne products dried out my skin, causing my body to produce more oil to replace the dry skin and causing more acne because of that.
I like Olay’s cleansers – they have a pore refining scrub cleanser that is nice when I want to remove dead skin and get a smooth surface. But their regular cream cleansers work great as well!
I suggest just using an acne spot treatment when needed – like a salicylic acid spot treatment.
If I were to use the Clean and Clear Spot Treatment Gel, should I use a regular cleanser like Cetaphil or Biore? Or should I use an acne cleanser like Neutrogena Oil Free Acne Wash in Pink Grapefruit. I don’t have serious acne, just pimples here and there.
Use “Niapads” (Nicotinamide acne pads) for controlling your acne. One step process provides exfoliation, pore cleansing and prevention of Acne.
I have quite bad acne on my face and on my back. I also have it on my chest. I have tried almost everything and nothing seems to really work. What is a really good product that i can use?
I suffered from acne for years.
I went on the pill – it worked but as soon as I stopped my acne returned and I got oilier skin. The health scares regarding taking the pill for a long time scared me, so I decided not to go back on it.
I used ProActive – again this worked while I was using it, it was quite harsh on my skin and occasionally I had dry flaky and red skin. I couldn’t afford to use this all the time, when I stopped my acne returned.
The best treatment I found was Top Shirley Medicated Cream – it was very gently, is almost like a chalky cream which I massaged into my face for two minutes morning and night. I saw instant results and even when I stopped using it the results lasted. I no longer use the cream purely because I don’t have too. I highly recommend this to anyone suffering from acne.

I use clearisal, but i still have little bumps that are red and some that aren’t even red. And if you could tell me, how can you get rid of acne scars?
It depends on your skin. Ive tried all the clearisels and the proactive and acne free. Ive even got a prescription from a doctor. They dont work. If you have light skin you should try looking for a medication with a higher percentage of benzoyl Peroxide. This chemical is used to treat acne. All acne medications have it. If you have dark skin you should use cloryphyl. My acne is a lot better but not gone. Hope this helps you.
what is the fastest best working antibiotic to get rid of acne?
Well proactive works the best i use it and i got no pimples!
I want to know how to get rid of acne.I have tried EVERTHING!
So if u know please tell me!
I had acne. I used to go to sleep with the fan on lightly on my face to dry the oil up. Always cleanse whenever i had the chance. If you go on the Clearasil website you do a test and it tells you what products are best for your skin. Always carry wet wipes with you. So if you get sweaty you can wipe the oil off to prevent spots. You should wash, cleanse, tone and moisturize with sea weed gel. Sea weed products are so good. Just remember to keep your face in the sun and your fan on to dry up all the oil.

My doctor prescribed me these for my acne and I’m pretty sure she said that if you take these you cannot get pregnant. But I’m not 100% sure if I heard her correctly thanks!
It is recommended that Oxytetracycline is not taken whilst pregnant as can cause harm to baby.
FDA pregnancy category D. Tetracycline can cause harm to an unborn baby, including permanent discoloration of the teeth later in life. Do not use tetracycline without your doctor’s consent if you are pregnant. Tell your doctor if you become pregnant during treatment. Http://www.drugs.com/tetracycline.html
Tetracycline can make birth control pills less effective. Use a second method of birth control while you are taking this medicine to keep from getting pregnant.
Oxytetracycline is not safe to take if you are, or are planning to become, pregnant.
It is sensible to limit use of medication during pregnancy whenever possible. However, your doctor may decide that the benefits outweigh the risks in individual circumstances and after a careful assessment of your specific health situation.
If you have any doubts or concerns you are advised to discuss the medicine with your doctor or pharmacist.
I’m wondering whether it really works that well or not? What do you know about it and what has it done for you?
One of the most common ways of treating acne is the use of retinoids. Retinoids are substances derived from Vitamin A, which attempt to cure acne by normalizing the lifecycle of follicle cells. There are two types of such substances, based on application: external (topical) and oral. The best known external retinoids are Retin-A, Differin and Tazorac, while the oral retinoids list is headed by the popular Accutane.
However, about one quarter of the patients who used Accutane or other drugs based on isotretinoin may relapse and require additional treatment.
But the biggest drawback of retinoids is the long list of side effects, which sometimes makes retinoids look like a disease rather than a cure.
The most common side effects are dry skin and nosebleeds. Many patients have also reported liver problems, while a few complained of depression. However, the scientific community is still split on the issue of depression. More seriously, isotretinoin is known to cause birth defects, which is why female patients have to use two separate forms of birth control or vow abstinence during the treatment. Pregnant women are not allowed to use anything but the mildest treatments.
The bottom line is that retinoids are a good idea if one can cope with the side effects. This begs the question: why not use something just as effective, but without the side effects.
Acne treatment systems, such as ClearPores: http://www.clearpores.com/clicks/clickthrough.html?a=150901 are also popular because of their success in dealing with the condition, but lack the extreme side that makes retinoids a pain to use. The choice between these treatments is yours.
I was on loestrin 24 Fe, but my period was still messed up. Then my doctor switched me to Apri.
Should I have anything to worry a bout on this pill?
Any info would be greatly appreciated.
What side effects may I notice from taking ethinyl estradiol; desogestrel? (Back to top)
Severe side effects are relatively rare in women who are healthy and do not smoke while they are taking oral contraceptives. On average, more women have problems due to complications from getting pregnant than have problems with oral contraceptives. Many of the minor side effects may go away as your body adjusts to the medicine. However, the potential for severe side effects does exist and you may want to discuss these with your health care provider.
The following symptoms or side effects may be related to blood clots and require immediate medical or emergency help:
•coughing up blood
•dizziness or fainting spells
•leg, arm or groin pain
•severe or sudden headaches
•stomach pain (severe)
•sudden shortness of breath
•sudden loss of coordination, especially on one side of the body
•swelling of the hands, feet or ankles, or rapid weight gain
•vision or speech problems
•weakness or numbness in the arms or legs, especially on one side of the body
Other serious side effects are rare. Contact your health care provider as soon as you can if the following side effects occur:
•breast tissue changes or discharge
•changes in vaginal bleeding during your period or between your periods
•headaches or migraines
•increases in blood sugar, especially if you have diabetes
•increases in blood pressure, especially if you are known to have high blood pressure
•symptoms of vaginal infection (itching, irritation or unusual discharge)
•tenderness in the upper abdomen
•yellowing of the eyes or skin
Side effects that usually do not require medical attention (report to your health care provider if they continue or are bothersome):
•breakthrough bleeding and spotting that continues beyond the 3 initial cycles of pills
•mild stomach upset
•mood changes, anxiety, depression, frustration, anger, or emotional outbursts
•increased or decreased appetite
•increased sensitivity to sun or ultraviolet light
•skin rash, acne, or brown spots on the skin
What should I watch for while taking ethinyl estradiol; desogestrel? (Back to top)
Visit your health care provider for regular checks on your progress. You should have a complete check-up every 6 to 12 months. If you have any unusual vaginal bleeding contact your prescriber or health care professional for advice. If you miss a period, the possibility of pregnancy must be considered. See your prescriber or health care provider as soon as you can.
Use an additional method of contraception during the first cycle that you take these tablets.
If you stop taking these tablets and want to get pregnant, a return to normal ovulation can take some time. You may not return to normal ovulation and fertility for 3 to 6 months. Discuss your pregnancy plans with your health care provider.
If you are taking oral contraceptives for the treatment of acne, hirsutism (male-like hair growth), endometriosis or other hormone related problems, it may take several months of continued treatment to notice improvement in your symptoms or condition.
Tobacco smoking increases the risk of getting a blood clot or having a stroke while you are taking ethinyl estradiol/desogestrel, especially if you are more than 35 years old. You are strongly advised not to smoke.
Oral contraceptives can increase your sensitivity to the sun and you may burn more easily. Use sunscreen and protective clothing during long periods outdoors. Tanning booths should be used with caution.
If you wear contact lenses and notice visual changes, or if the lenses begin to feel uncomfortable, consult your eye care specialist.
In some women, tenderness, swelling, or minor bleeding of the gums may occur. Notify your dentist if this happens. Brushing and flossing your teeth regularly may help limit this. See your dentist regularly and inform your dentist of the medicines you are taking.
You may get a vaginal yeast infection. If you have never had a yeast infection before, see your prescriber or other health care provider to confirm the problem. If you have had yeast infections in the past and are comfortable with self-medicating the problem, get and use a nonprescription medication to treat the yeast infection.
If you are going to have elective surgery, you may need to stop taking your contraceptive pills one month beforehand. Consult your health care professional for advice prior to scheduling the surgery.
Taking contraceptive pills does not protect you against HIV infection (AIDS) or any other sexually transmitted diseases.

anything at home i could use everyday to get rid of acne?
While I can recommend something that will help, acne is both a hormonal issue and a skin care issue. The problem with most of the products out there in the market is that they contain detergent which will remove dirt, oil, and makeup but it also strips your skin of water. It’s not labeled as detergent in the ingredients but it’s called Sodium Laureth Sulfate or Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (check the ingredients on your current cleanser). When your skin is dehydrated, it breaks down more quickly and will cause you to age faster because you lose elasticity in your skin (starts to droop and wrinkle). That’s why most skin care is a huge marketing ploy. They sell you stuff that appears to work so you use it but then you begin to age prematurely so they can sell you wrinkle creams and things of that nature much faster than you ordinarily would need them… Detergents also leave a residue on your skin that causes blackheads. I can e-mail you my complete routine if you’d like me to. Just e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll send you a detailed description of the routine along with examples of what I use. Since you only asked for an at-home acne remedy, here it is:
Go to the grocery store and find either a lemon, orange, or pineapple-flavored yogurt (any brand is fine) and apply it all over your face and let it sit for 10-15mins. Do this every day if you have bad acne or just 1-2 a week to exfoliate. Rinse it off with lukewarm water. The cultures in yogurt help neutralize the bacteria in pores (a blemish is simply a bacteria-filled pore) and the citric acid in the lemon, orange, or pineapple will help you exfoliate the top layer of skin which will be much better than using a scrub.
whats good ways to get rid of pimples or acnne, or even black heads or some good face wash? i have clearsil face wash, is that good? like i dont have a lot of acne haha, just wondering
For a face cleanser, I use St. Ives Apricot Blemish Control Face scrub. It works really well !
After using the face scrub, I dry my face and then apply Neutrogena’s Rapid Clear acne treatment pads.
For stubborn and huge pimples, I use Clean & Clear’s persa gel. It has maximum strength Benzoyl peroxide so it’s very strong and works well ! Within hours, I notice my pimples become smaller and practically disappear when I apply the persa gel.
Wait at least 15 minutes for the any acne medication to set in before applying a moisturizing face lotion because acne-fighting products can dry out the skin.
Be sure to drink plenty of water! It will help immensely with acne. Avoid foods/drinks that are sugary, oily, greasy, or fried as well.
The products I mentioned above can all be found at Wal-mart.
Links to products I mentioned above:
Take a nutmeg ( JAAYPHAL) rub it over stone by using milk as the medium to prepare paste. Now apply this paste over your acne at bed time & wash with water in morning daily for 15 days.Have honey & add little holy BASIL leaves juice to it mix now apply it over the acne in the morning & after drying wash it with water.
Wash your face with water 4-6 times daily & wipe off with towel gently.Stop taking Junk / Fast Food much spicy & deep fried preparations. Minimise coffee or tea consumption. Take Papaya after lunch.Seasonal fruits, curd & green vegetables be added to your diet.Do not take nonveg for 15 days.
If you follow my suggestions regularly for 15 days, you will get rid of your problem.
For oily face apply MULTANI MITTI face pack over your face regularly for 7 days & wash after drying with water. There will be no oily skin.

I have a ton of red acne marks on my face and they are still there 2 years later.
I’ve tried over the counter products and even ointments such as Diffirin and Atralin, with no prevail.
What actually get’s right of red acne marks?
I think you mean the acne scars.
Apply cocoa butter to the scars. Studies have shown that regular application of cocoa butter helps to fade scars more rapidly than some other creams on the market. Also, look for creams that contain naturally healing ingredients, such as shea butter, jojoba oil, castor oil and rose hip oil.
Try an over-the-counter medication such as Mederma, which is specially designed to treat scars. (Any cream that is designed to get rid of scars will work.) Healing time generally takes up to six months before any significant improvement will occur.
Talk to your dermatologist about Retin-A topical creams. These creams have been shown to greatly reduce the appearance of scars. Retinal creams encourages cell turnover. The new cells then take the place of older, scarred cells. Retin-A requires a prescription.
Start dermabrasion treatments. A licensed professional will use a dermabrasion device to treat the scars. Tiny crystals on the end of the device essentially buff away the top layers of your skin. With repeated treatments, you will see a noticeable improvement. Expect your skin to be a bit red and irritated after each treatment.
Have a look here. You will find dozens of recipes for homemade skin care products. You will find several that could help you with this. One thing you could try is a simple dermabrasion. Mix a little sugar with some olive oil and rub it into your skin. It should help.
I have acne marks that are very stubborn and won’t go away! I used to pop my pimples a lot, now i don’t, and there are a ton of marks on my face. I really want to clear them up. Also, what is good for acne? I use Clean & Clear acne spot treatment and it works really well but they are still there. Please Help Me! Thanks!
I have horrible scar marks all along the sides of my face, and I believe what worked best for me (i never really used it though) but when I did, is this bottle called Bio Oil. A little on the expensive side, but I just leave it on right before I sleep and it makes my skin more toned and soft and looks a lot clearer than the night before.
Try it, It helps with a lot of skin problems (:
& for acne, depending on what kind of skin you have, whether it’s oily or dry, you can use anything as long as you wash in the morning AND night. When you wake up you have crud all over your face from your pillow and hair, which, after a while, can clog pores. & At night, because you’ll have a lot of stuff on your face from daily things, like make up and sweating and stuff.
Hope I helped a little (:
I am 11 and i have acne. The acne is not really that bad, but I want it to be gone. I mostly have acne marks, i want those to be gone to. What product should I ues?
At the present time, there is still no cure for acne. However, there are various treatments and preventative measures that can be taken to stop acne before it starts.
Start by adopting a good basic cleansing routine. Even though acne is not caused by poor hygene, it is important to use a wash cloth or another material that will help exfoliate. This is because excess skin cells can contribute to acne. Twice a day should be plenty, and be sure to stay away from oil based moisturizers.
After cleaning the face, use a 2% salicylic acid solution such as stridex or oxy pads. Salicylic acid works by removing more excess skin cells that can clog pores and cause acne to develop. If this is done every day, it will reduce the amount of acne breakouts.
If salicylic acid does not work, try a 5% benzoyl peroxide solution. Anything more than 5% will usually just cause excessive dryness. 5% is strong enough to prevent acne, but not so strong that it irritates the skin. An herbal alternative to benzoyl peroxide is tea tree oil, which has been clinically proven to be as effective as benzoyl peroxide. It is also much less irritating to the skin.
Last but not least, use an oil free sunscreen to protect the skin before going outdoors. This is very important, because sunlight can cause damage and irritation to the skin. Once the skin is damaged, it increases the likelihood of an acne breakout.
The most important part of this regimen is to repeat the steps ever day, whether or not acne is present. By exfoliating, using salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide every day, and protecting the skin with sunscreen, this will stop acne before it starts.
There are also alternative treatments that can be used to prevent acne. Prescription medications such as Accutane, or Retin-A will work to prevent acne. Retin-A in particular can be used with relatively few side effects, and will also work to reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
The downside is that it will make the skin more sensitive to sunlight, so wearing sunscreen is a must. Avoiding sunlight as much as possible is even better.
Alpha Hydroxy peels can also be used to prevent acne. By applying glycolic acid to the face, it will gently peel off the upper layers of skin, and allow the skin to renew itself. This form of acne prevention should be administered by a dermatologist, since too much glycolic acid can do more harm than good.
Many acne treatments also work as acne preventatives. The problem is most people stop treating acne once it is gone. The best way to prevent acne and acne scarring is to use a daily regimen of exfoliating, medicating, and protecting at all times. This will keep the vast majority of acne from ever showing up.

1. Prevent and treat acne.
2.Get rid of acne scars.
3.Dry oily skin.
I have oily skin. Which product will work fast (less than a week) and do all of the above.
I do not like Clean and Clear because they test their products on animals, and the one time I did try a product it burnt my face red. I would use more natural products, who have special products for acne and oily skin. I use some stuff from Kiehl’s and it works wonderfully. I would advice you to check out some other companies that appeal to you, that have more natural and benifical ingredients in them, and should get the non animal testing companies. Many companies don’t do this anymore so it wont be hard to find some. Rubbing soap in rabbits eyes and burning them with chemicals is not something I condone. I love skin care beauty but I’m not going to be vain enough to benefit myself and know I’m torturing a helpless scared creature. Just think about it, thats all I ask. (Some companies that dont test: Burt Bees, Aveda, Clinique, Estee Lauder, Nivea, Origins, Kiehls, Lumene, St.Ives, Almay, and Revlon.
