How long will acne scars/marks take to fade?

And is there anything i can do to quicken up the process?
I cant stop picking my spots and then they leave marks, but now im not going to touch my face. I go back to uni in 2 weeks and want my skin to look better. I tried exfoliation but my skin starts to get very dry despite me moisturising,
Any other tips? Natural ones please :)

Here are some tips that might be helpful:
1) Tea Tree Oil
2) Lemon juice
3) Apple cider vinegar
4) Bamboo extract – good for rosacea and psoriasis
5) Bio Oil or BB cream for dark spots or scars

Applied lemon juice or apple cider vinegar to face or you can drink it through using it in water a few drops a day. Will help with both acne, and scars as well. Another way you can get rid of acne is by taking bamboo extract something I started when I had the problem really does work. Hope this works for you.

Tea-Tree Oil
Tea tree oil is a popular home remedy for acne. An essential oil is diluted and applied topically to acne lesions. How is tea tree oil believed to work? Tea tree oil contains a constituent called terpinen-4-ol that’s thought to be responsible for most of tea tree oil’s anti-bacterial activity. Because tea tree oil can kill bacteria, applying topical tea tree oil to acne lesions is believed to kill Propionibacterium acnes, the skin-dwelling bacteria involved in acne.To treat mild, occasional breakouts.
How it works: Distilled from the leaves of an Australian shrub, tea-tree oil contains antibacterial and anti-microbial compounds called terpenoids that help kill the bacteria that, when trapped behind oil in a plugged pore, lead to acne breakouts. Try Burt’s Bees Herbal Blemish Stick ($8, burtsbees.com). A roller-ball tube makes for easy application.Studies testing tea-tree oil against the gold-standard acne treatment, benzoyl peroxide, have shown that while the latter works more quickly, tea-tree oil is equally effective over time. And it results in fewer annoying side effects—namely, dryness and redness.

Over the counter remedies for hormonal acne?

I have had clear skin all my life until now! I am 42 and the last few months my chin stays constantly broke out with big painful pimples. As soon as one heals three more pop up. I can’t even cover them with make up they are so red and swollen. Does anyone have any remedies that have worked. I’ve heard that its because of the drop of estrogen and that causes oil to form and mix with dirt. I wash my face every day. They just pop up over night. Please help!!

Sulfur
If you have sensitive skin.
How it works: A time-tested, gentle acne fighter, sulfur “acts like a sponge to draw oil out of blocked pores,”. This dries up pimples and keeps sebum production in check, helping to prevent future blemishes. Sulfur has a distinct smell—think rotten eggs. Most preparations that use it contain a masking fragrance. However, to play it safe (and avoid scaring off coworkers), apply these products at night.

Salicylic Acid
To treat and soothe red, inflamed blemishes.Salicylic acid can have a calming, anti-inflammatory effect on pimples. “It also breaks down the ‘cement’ between cells in clogged pores to help unplug them,”
Salicylic acid is less irritating than more potent treatments, so it may be better for those with dry skin. It also tends to work well on stubborn blackheads.

Retinoids
Nightly to prevent breakouts.
How they work: Retinoids, which include over-the-counter retinol and prescription-strength Retin-A, reduce acne by altering the oil chemistry on the skin. “They help stop dense sebum from getting stuck within the pores,” says Gross. Without oil deposits, bacteria can’t grow and cause blemishes. Since retinoids can make skin sensitive to the sun, doctors recommend using them at night (and being diligent about wearing sunscreen during the day). To avoid irritation, apply every other evening to start, gradually working up to nightly use. Bonus benefit: Retinoids have been shown to increase collagen production and plump fine lines, making them a good choice if you’re dealing with acne and wrinkles.

Blue-Light Therapy
If you want the latest preventive treatment—and don’t mind plunking down some cash for it.
How it works: Once or twice a week, you use a handheld device to aim a beam of blue light onto your skin. “Its wavelength hits and kills acne-causing bacteria,” so any brewing pimples never come to the surface.This method will not address existing blemishes. Doctors typically suggest combining blue-light therapy with other remedies, such as topical treatments. To make things easy, consider a blue-light device that comes in a kit. At-home devices are smart alternatives to multiple costly treatments at a doctor’s office.

Oral Antibiotics
If you experience painful bumps below the skin surface and your pimples leave lasting marks. “Oral antibiotics act from the inside to kill the bacteria that cause acne,” says Keri. They also reduce the inflammation associated with pimples, so deep-seated blemishes hurt less and leave fewer scars.

Doctors usually prescribe them to get a severe condition under control and may then switch to topical treatments. Some antibiotics must be taken on an empty stomach, so read the label carefully.

Chris asks…

I would like to tet rid of some of my acne before I go, but my normal acne product isn’t really helping anymore. I usually use Proactiv and it does clear me up a bit but not really a lot and sometimes it doesnt work at all, unfortunately now is one of those times. Is there anything some-what cheap that I could buy while I am at CVS?

Acne has an affect on everyone. It is not going to zap away it will take some time.
You Will Need -
• A gentle facial cleanser
• Warm water
• A towel
• Topical acne medication
• Sunscreen
• Patience
• A tissue
• Noncomedogenic cosmetics
• Shaving cream with benzoyl peroxide
• A dermatologist
• Prescription acne medicine
Step 1:
Wash your face with a gentle cleanser with warm water, every morning and night.
Don’t put pressure on your acne it will make acne red and irritated.
Step 2:
Gently dab away water on your face, but don’t take all of the moisture away because it will only make your skin dry. Be careful to wash your face too much because it can irritate your skin. If you have oily skin, get a tissue and wipe the oil away.
Step 3:
Apply a topical acne medication, from a dermatologist or from any store. You can also get lotion, or gel containing benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid.
Benzoyl peroxide gets bacteria from the skin and salicylic acid helps unclog pores and prevent your skin from peeling. Get one that fits better for your skin.
Step 4:
Protect your skin with a non-comedogenic sunscreen(sunscreen that doesn’t clog pores). To avoid your skin from way too much sunlight, that can make your acne worse.
Step 5:
Use only non-comedogenic, water-based make-up that is oil-free. There are moisturizers and makeup that is made for people who have acne
Step 6:
Be careful when you shave. Shaving can irritate your skin and shake in only one direnction.
Some shaving creams have benzoyl peroxide, so it can help get rid of your acne.

Step 7:
NEVER squeeze, pop, or pinch acne. It causes more acne and it can make you get scarring.
Step 8:
Try avoid things touching your face, like holding a phone against your face, wearing sports equipment, or resting your chin on your hand.
Step 9:
Keep your hair clean and out of your face. The natural oils in hair can contribute to acne, as can hair products that contain oil.
Step 10:
If you still have acne while taking care of your skin you might want to go to a dermatologist. There are different types of acne and different treatment.
Step 11:
Be patient! Fighting acne can be slow, and it’s not going to zap away in a day. But when you get rid of your acne, you’ll say hello to your new face.
