Someone told my brother to use DOVE soap. It dries your skin out a lot but it’s definitely been known to work. My brother’s acne was really bad and it has cleared up really fast (after like 2 days there was a difference) Note: your face wont be completely clear in one night, that really isn’t possible. Also use HONEY…like the kind you eat. Put it directly on the breakout and overnight you can tell it has lowered. I don’t have acne but if i feel one coming on i put honey on it and its not there is the morning. Hopefully that helps!!! ;) good luck.

How to get rid of acne and redness quickly?

I can’t buy Proactive. And I CAN’T convince my mom to buy it for me. (I’ve already tried)
So, is there anything else I could do?
Or is there a product that‘s availible in like..Wal mart or Target or something that works fast! :D

Acne diet

Avoid all rich foods, excessive amounts of sugar, and particularly chocolate and nuts. Choose a plain, well balanced diet containing plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables. Drink water and fruit juices, but avoids highly sweetened drinks. Extra vitamin A tablets should be added to the diet.

Try to sleep at least eight hours every night. Avoid all strains, and follow the principles of good health, as these are essential for health.

There are many natural home remedies for acne that we have in our kitchen or we can get from the health food store. These are not very expensive.

All-fruit Acne diet

To begin with, the patient should take only an ‘all-fruit’ diet for a week, taking three meals a day, of fresh juicy fruits, such as apples, pears, grapes, grapefruit, pineapples, and peaches. Only unsweetened lemon or plain water, either hot or cold, should be drunk and nothing else.

Well-balanced Acne diet

After the one-week, all-fruit diet, the patient can gradually adopt a well-balanced diet with emphasis on raw foods, especially fresh fruit and vegetables, sprouted seeds, raw nuts, and wholegrain cereals, particularly millet and brown rice. Further short periods of the ‘all-fruit’ diet for three days or so may be necessary at a monthly interval till the skin’s condition improves.

Avoid strong tea/coffee, soft drinks and processed foods

Meats, sugar, strong tea or coffee, condiments, pickles, soft drinks, candies, ice cream, refined and processed foods should be avoided as far as possible.

Sorry if it’s a bit long!!

Steven asks…

What are some really good home remedies for acne?

I have acne. It’s not mild but not extreme.. I’ve been scrubbing my face each night with Noxema and it’s not helping at all. Are there any home remedies that I can whip up with stuff just lying around the house that actually WORKS? Thanks.

admin answers:

Hi, I am a DIY person :) so I am always looking for homemade stuff instead of buying.

I looked into the matter and I found out many natural home remedies for acne. Most of them will help your skin heal from the damage caused by your acne, but they won’t cure the acne.

But I didn’t give up. One theory that made sense to me is that you need to treat the internal problem causing acne. That is – hormonal imbalances, toxines etc..

How can you do that? – Primarily you must help the liver, the pancreas and the kidney.

I am currently using “Apple Cider Vinegar” which is a natural cure for acne.

Apple Cider Vinegar is an effective natural agent that cures acne by killing the bacteria and balancing our skin’s pH level (which is a measure of acidity). It also absorbs excessive oil from our skin, which is a leading cause of acne.

In the spring I will take a Dandelion cure.

Dandelion shuns wet places, it has two outstanding qualities: it is useful in disorders of the liver and of the gallbladder.
Dandelion and Stinging Nettle have a blood purifying effect. They aide the functions of the liver and the pancreas, thus reducing the hormonal imbalances in the body.

Infusion: 1 heaped tablespoon of roots is soaked in cold water overnight, brought to the boil and strained next day. This amount is apportionately sipped, half an hour before and half an hour after breakfast.

I also recommend a Nettle cure as an acne remedy.

- Wear gloves when handling fresh nettle plants.
- Remove leaves from stems and discard stems.
- Fill a teapot full of nettle leaves
- Pour boiling water over the leaves.
- Steep for 5 minutes.
- Add honey and/or lemon if desired and drink.

The tea will be somewhat bitter. However, it is quite nutritious an especially high in calcium.

Other quick homemade acne treatments I found to keep your skin clean:

1. Garlic is an excellent treatment for acne, in case you did not know. Just rub with a garlic clove cut in two over the acne, or cut into slivers a garlic clove and apply over acne with a plaster, leaving overnight to act;

2. Onion is a good apprentice in the fight against acne and its traces when it disappears. Make a puree with the blender and apply it as a facial mask once a week;

3. Lemon juice applied to skin helps to close pores, and to increase the brightness of skin;

4. Baking soda mixed with vegetal soap (preferably soap made only from olive oil or vegetable oil) is the best antibacterial scrub the skin;

5. Mixture of fine sea salt to whites of an egg is very good for sensitive skin attacked by acne. Apply as a mask and remove easily with circular movements;

6. Honey can be applied as a mask for acne skin;

7. Vinegar is a good tonic antiseptic for acne, acting very gentle if you mix in equal proportion with water or green tea;

8. Yogurt is very effective and safe for skin prone to acne. Apply directly from the jar, let it react 5-10 minutes, then rinse;

9. Cut a gauze circle about the size of the face, soak it in fresh made green tea (very hot but not boiling) and apply on face. Let dry and remove carefully;

10. Herbs such as echinacea, rosemary, dill and parsley are great for teas and infusions wich purify the skin.
