admin answers:

How long have you been using the product? Is it their acne line or one of the others?

I’ve never had any luck with Clinique. I always tried to love them, but it always failed. They work for all of my friends and family, though.

Usually, 4 weeks is the amount of time you should give a product before trying something else. If it is drawing out impurities, it would be happening for the first week or two. Afterward, it will clear up.

If it is opposite, got better first and is now worse, I would switch to something else.

If you don’t have insane acne, you should try switching to something that isn’t as harsh. I used to only use facial products aimed towards eliminating acne. But none of them ever worked. About a year ago, I switched to the Neutrogena Facial Bar. It’s pretty mild, and does nothing but clean your skin. Along with that, I use their oily/combination lotion and Biore toner. I always have a tube of Clean and Clear spot treatment just in case. But my skin has never been clearer.

Your problem might be that you’re just using too harsh of a product. If Clinique isn’t working out, you could save a bit of money using something more gentle.

Wash your face twice a day with warm water and a good face wash.
You can buy good face washes just about anywhere, they’re not too exspensive.
I recommend a wash with salicylic acid. It will work just fine with less irritation.
* Benzoyl Peroxide is also effective at treating acne, but in my experience it causes a lot of dryness and redness.

After you wash, make sure you moisturize your skin within 5 minutes.
* It’s important to use a non-comedogenic lotion. These kind of lotions do not irritate the skin.
* Keeping your face moisturized will reduce dryness and your face will be less oily. It’s very important.

Never touch your face or pop your pimples. Popping them will only make them worse, and they’ll spread.
- If you must pop them, wipe your face immediately after with alcohol. This will kill the bacteria so they won’t spread.
* Alcohol will dry your face out really fast so I wouldn’t do this very often.

*Lemon Juice is used as a homeopathic treatment for acne. Lemon juice also contains one of the AHAs or Alpha Hydroxy Acids and can be used to slough off dead skin, promoting skin elasticity, and enabling new skin cell growth rise from underneath.

Keep your pillow cases clean. Wash them often. Once a week if possible.

This isn’t a one time thing, you have to continue this over time to see a difference. Once you get in the routine it will become natural and your face will be flawless!

*** Products I use..

1.) Clean&Clear – Advantage (3 in 1 foaming face wash)
2.) Clean&Clear – Advantage (Acne control moisturizer)
3.) CeraVe moisturizing face wash and lotion
4.) Neutrogena ( On The Spot)
5.) Stridex pads (Sensitive)

- I use 1 in the shower, and sometimes before bed.
- I use 2 before bed on most night.
- I use 3 in the morning to make my face look nice. The lotion won’t make your face look oily.
- I use 4 when I see a breakout starting.
- I use 5 when I get home from school, and randomly when I feel like my face is dirty.

(Cleanser, toner & moisturizer) I have combination skin.

This is what I do.

Aloe vera gel mixed with 2 drops of tea tree essential oil works really well and has been shown in studies to improve acne. Doing scrubs is not good for acne at all because it irritates acne so I use warm oatmeal with a little bit of honey to exfoliate which is more gently. A french “green” clay mask works very well also. I started using a papaya mask a few weeks ago and I now have a great glow and less acne!! It removes impurities from deep within and your acne may get worse before it gets better using the french clay.

Papaya mask/exfoliant

Cut the papaya in 1 inch chunks. Blend/mash 2 or 3 chunks and store the wrest in the freezer. Apply the blended/mashed papaya and leave on face for 10-20 min. Use 2 or 3x a week.
The papaya may tingle but that just means that the papaya is working and it is breaking down dead skin cells to give that lovely glow and since it breaks down the dead skin it clears out the pores and in turn they shrink!!! (You may not see the results you want until you use it for a while.)

You should try an organic cleanser. (You can get them at a health food store.) I use a herbal astringent recipe from “The herbal body book” by Stephanie Tourles which you can get cheap on half.com. Works really good and is so soothing. Use a oil free moisturizer or emu oil (http://www.daybreaklavenderfarm.com/store/Emu-Oil-…-DayBreak-s-is-Unrefined-and-Proud-of-it-pr-16676.html) at night on your face, neck and chest. (Emu oil doesn’t clog pores and won’t cause more acne. Promise!! I use it) Try taking vitamins A, E, D, C, B5 vitamin & Zinc. Also eat healthy lean meats, fresh fruits and vegetables. Boxed foods and fast food will make it so much worse!

If you are on a tight budget try this.

Cleanser: baking soda or sea salt.

Toner: Organic green tea or aloe vera gel.

Moisturizer: 1/2 cup water 3 tsp. Vegetable glycerin and 5 drops lemon essential oil or oil free moisturizer.

Mask: (use 2 or 3x a week unless you have dry skin.) French “green” clay removes impurities tightens and tones skin. (You can use overnight as a spot treatment also.) Leave on for 10-20 min or until dry then rinse and moisturize.

Exfoliant: (use 2 or 3x a week unless you have dry skin.) Warm oatmeal mixed with a little honey. And left on for 5 minutes then rinse and moisturize.

Blackheads: Baking soda mixed with water into a paste and then add tea tree essential oil if you’d like then scrub the affected are 2-3 min. Or apply elmers glue to affected are let dry and peel off like you would pore strips. Works really well!

Daily as a morning toner/moisturizer you can use 1/4 tsp. Aloe vera gel mixed with 2 or 3 drops of tea tree essential oil. Works really well.

Also take vitamins A, E, D, C, B5 vitamin & Zinc. Also eat healthy lean meats, fresh fruits and vegetables. Boxed foods and fast food will make it so much worse!

Hope this helps!!
