Acne Treatments That Work

Ken asks…

Are there acne treatments specifically for swimmers?

I swim everyday and my pool recently switched from chlorine to saline and my face has started breaking out a lot more. The problem is most acne treatments dry out your skin but because of constantly being in the pool my face cant be anymore dry.

Many People swear by Apple Cider Vineager for your situation. You dilute it 1/2 with water and wipe your face off with a cotton ball a couple times a day. Its removed the acne causing toxins without sucking the healthy moisture out. Try it for a minimum of 10 days before passing judgement as it takes some time for your pores to purge out all the impurities. Best of Luck!

I am 18 weeks pregnant and have used a topical acne treatment about 3 times and it contains 2% salicylic acid?

I just read about the dangers of salicylic acid when pregnant and so far I have used this topical acne treatment only 3 times during my pregnancy and am hoping I didn’t do anything to hurt the baby? Is this ok?
I am definitely not using it anymore but am wondering if I could have already caused some damage to my baby?

Maintain a routine. Most acne treatments take time to work. It usually takes between two and eight weeks before you see any significant improvement, so you are going to have to be patient. Once you’ve gotten your acne cleared up, it’s important to continue with the treatment that’s working so it does not return.

If all else fails, contact a doctor. Mild antibiotics that are available only by prescription can help reduce acne. Keep in mind though, that the widespread overuse (taking antibiotics when you really don’t need them or for something they don’t treat) and misuse (not taking medication for the specified amount of time) of antibiotics has led to the development of multiple antibiotic resistant bacteria. That means that the antibiotics won’t work for the things they used to (including your acne).

Keep hair off of your face if at all possible. If you want to keep your bangs, then consider taking showers regularly or keeping your forehead clean with oil-dabbing cloths / clean tissues / etc.
