Clear Acne In 4 Weeks

Daniel asks…

What is a good powder to use that is natural and healthy?

I am looking for a decent, preferably “natural” brand of makeup that isn’t too expensive. I’m kind of acne prone and I need a plain pressed powder compact, something that won’t clog pores and is nice and natural. Any suggestions?

Susan asks…

What products can I use to help my hair become strong and soft again?

I have been dying my hair non stop for 4 years now and last year I bleached is twice and died it some ludicrous colours. Well now my hair has been destroyed.

I now only dye it every 3-4 months with a no ammonia hair dye but what products can I use to regain some quality and stop it breaking so often. I only use conditioner but it seems to have no affect on my dry damaged hair. I am trying to grow my hair but it doesn’t look it as every time it grows the ends break off.

Help?

1. Baking Soda
Rinse Your Hair With Baking Soda Once a Week to Remove Build-Up
You can actually do this one of two ways: Add 2 Tbsp of baking soda to 3 cups of water. After shampooing, rinse with the baking soda water and then condition as you normally do. Or, if you have a way to keep your baking soda dry as you shower, put your shampoo in your hand (as usual) and then sprinkle a decent amount of baking soda on top of that. Then just wash your hair.
The baking soda will REALLY help clarify your hair and leave it shiny and silky – kinda like it’s brand new.
Who Should Use This: It’s okay for any hair type (especially if you only do it once a week), but it’s best served for people who have issues with hard water or product build-up, dull hair, or hair that just hangs out and doesn’t have much life to it.
2. Eggs
How to Use Eggs in Haircare
Much like the baking soda above, the quickest and easiest way to get the great egg effect for your hair is to add a beaten egg to your regular shampoo. Just whip up the egg and pour some shampoo in the bowl with it. Wash your hair as normal.
Alternatively, you could whip up one or two eggs (depending on your volume of hair) and rub them into dry hair. Cover with a towel or shower cap and leave on 15 minutes before washing out. And please heed the note below.
Make sure the water you rinse with isn’t so hot as to cook the eggs. THAT would be a mess.
Who Should Use This: People who have brittle or delicate hair – or anyone just wanting to add luster, strengthening, and moisture.
3. Molasses or Maple Syrup
How to Use Molasses or Maple Syrup on Your Hair
Pour either of these things (you can dilute the molasses with water if it’s too thick to scrub in) on dry hair. Wrap with plastic wrap or cover with a good shower cap. Leave on for 20 minutes. Wash as you normally do. Note: Please use real maple syrup or molasses – none of this “mostly high-fructose corn syrup” crud. That’s not going to help much.
Who Should Use This: People with dry hair or anyone who wants a very hearty boost of moisturizing.
Bonus: Black strap molasses, taken internally (about 2 tsp a day) can help clear up acne and strengthen hair and nails. In fact, a couple of studies have shown that daily ingestion of black strap molasses may, in fact, help alleviate hair loss and even restore hair.
4. Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple Cider Vinegar for Shiny, Bouncy Hair.
How to Use Apple Cider Vinegar on Your Hair
Add 1 Tbsp of apple cider vinegar to 2 cups of water. Shake well.
After using conditioner, just before hopping out of the shower, rinse your hair with the ACV mixture. You can either do one last rinse with water, or leave it in. As I said, the scent will disappear completely as it dries.
Take your vinegar rinse up a notch by boiling chamomile (for blonde hair), rosemary (for dark hair) or nettle (any hair color) in the water before adding the apple cider vinegar. (Just be sure to strain the herbs out before adding ACV.)
Who Should Use This: Anyone who wants a little extra clarifying or suffers from dandruff, oily scalp, or dullness. In addition, anyone who wants a little extra smoothing shine should try an ACV rinse.
5. Olive Oil
How to Use Olive Oil on Your Hair
To moisturize and strengthen: Pop 1/2 cup of olive oil in the microwave for 15 seconds (or heat on very low for a few minutes) – just until it’s warm enough to matter, but not so hot that it burns your skin. Apply to damp (not dripping!) hair. Wrap with plastic wrap or cover with a warm towel. Leave this on for 20 minutes to an hour, and then shampoo out as usual.
To smooth and shine: Put a scant 1/2 tsp of olive oil in your palms and rub. Then apply to the top of your hair, moving downward.
Who Should Use This: Everyone! Olive oil is great for any hair type and helps with pretty much any issue you may have.

Betty asks…

How can I help clear up my face?

Ok, I’m 14 years old, and I know that there have probably been a MILLION questions on Yahoo! Answers about acne and pimples but I wanted to know what I need to do to clear my face of acne. I know that I don’t have a bad condition of acne, only around my nose and occasionally forehead, but every time it starts to clear up, I get more acne! I wash my face twice a day with a mild bar of soap, occasionally use rubbing alcohol to dry up the oily area around my skin, eat healthy, and drink lots of water. My skin is kind of oily, but not very oily. How can I stop acne from happening? My mom said she would buy me whatever products I wanted, but do they work? Has anyone tried Proactiv, and does it work? What about KlearAction? Also, does the Clean and Clear Invisible Blemish treatment work? What are some home remedies? If you know anything about skincare or acne removal, PLEASE HELP!!! Thanks!
Also, my skin is somewhat sensitive.

I’m 16, and I’m in the same position you are in.
I go to the dermatologist, but nothing he’s given me has helped much.
Before you try ANYTHING ELSE, let me give you some advice on what to do next.
1. Wash your hands regularly, and keep your hands off your face. (Don’t lean on your palm while listening to boring history lectures, haha)
2. DON’T use rubbing alcohol, astringent, toner, of ANY TYPE with alcohol in it. Alcohol strips your skin of its good stuff and leaves it red and irritated. This should impove your redness.
3. Use a oil free gentle soap, like Dove, and wash no more than 3 times a day. (morning, after school, at night)
4. Use as little makeup as possible, and use oil free stuff, like Physicians Formula (I LOVE the new mineral makeup stuff) or Neutrogena. Apply the stuff with dobber things and makeup brushes instead of rubbing it in with your finger.
5. Take all your acne products, and put them on the shelf. Your skin needs time to re-balance itself to its natural pH and air out for about 2 weeks. If it gets bad:
6. Are your zits big and cystic? Introduce your skin to an over-the-counter benzoyl peroxide cream (something Neutrogena I’d reccommend) with a low concentration, a high concentration can dry out your skin. Apply a thin film over your face at night, over the affected areas.
7. If your zits are small and not hurting like big zits, try something with salylic (I think thats how its spelled) acid in it. Neutrogena has stuff with that too. Again, use a low concentration of it, and apply it as a thin film over your face at night.
8. DON’T BE TEMPTED INTO THE MEDICATED FACE WASH! Soap is all you need. If you get into the routine of using a million products together, just take a few steps back, and put them all away and keep it simple.

Lastly, if none of it works, go to a dermatologist.
Get a good one too, I think I’m going to switch mine.

Good luck.
