Clear Acne In 4 Weeks

How to get rid of moderate acne?

I can’t really afford a dermatologist. So do you know of any remedies or actual acne products that work? Thanks!

I had severe acne all over my chin, forehead, sides and nose. It started the beginning of February and now it’s the end of August and my skin is clear, with no scarring. I haven’t had more than one pimple at a time for the past two months. I used to be like you and had moderate acne, but it turned into severe acne. As soon as you notice that you have acne prone skin of any sort, you have to do something about it. I didn’t do anything, and that’s why my face broke out. Some people will tell you to just leave it, but if you want to prevent, you must take action. I’ll tell you the amazing daily routine that works so well for me.

Morning:
1. Use a good cleanser that is made for acne skin. I love The orange Neutrogena cleansers. They are cheap and you can find them at Targets or any main drugstores, departments, grocery stores, etc. Wait for your face to dry until the next step.

2. Use a toner made for acne skin. Put the liquid on a cotton pad and rub/glide it gently over your entire face.

3. Then use an acne prevention treatment cream that contains benzoyle peroxide. This is what prevents acne and is crucial in a routine. These acne creams/medications are found near the cleansers.

4. Then something reeeaaalllyy important is sunblock. This prevents your skin of damage from all the loose agents in the air/sun rays that try to attack your skin everyday. Buy an oil free sunblock so theres no oils to create acne.I would suggest you find a local skin center and you can ask for a good sunblock that won’t cause acne. It might be 20 dollars to 30 at a skin place, but it’s worth it since your other products are all around 5 – 10 dollars.

5. After that you can apply your makeup/ concealers.

6. Also, buy an exfoliator. This is only to be used once a week. Twice only if you need it. Exfoliators should all be by the cleansers. In fact, a good cleanser that has beads will exfoliate your skin well. Although don’t use that cleanser with beads everyday. You still need your foaming, regular soapy cleanser for everyday use.

Night:

1. Cleanser
2. Toner
3. A little of the acne prevention cream in needed areas.
You dont want to do much at night because your skin needs to heal.

Notice I left out moisturizers. In the beginning, don’t use any moisturizers. That’s contradictory to what you want to accomplish. You need to dry out your skin to prevent new from coming. I had dry skin at first, but my skin got used to the product after two to three weeks. I would endure the dryness for a month. If it isn’t better, I would buy an oil free moisturizer used at night time only. That could be a fourth step. But it’s better if you can endure some dryness.

The most important thing is to keep up with the system and not to miss a step and not get lazy and not discouraged if it doesn’t work fast enough. It takes a month to two for your skin to really respond. Sometimes even three. The key is to keep up with it unless you notice yourself still breaking out after 12 weeks on it. Then change products. If you can afford it, I recommend to get an acne facial maybe two or three times a year. They make specific facials for acne. If you follow this looonnggg thing, your face will be really happy. Also drink lots of water (64 to 72 ounces) a day. It keeps your skin hydrated. And eat healthy! It really works.

Finally, good luck!

Donna asks…

How do I get rid of vaginal acne?

I’ve had vaginal acne for a while, and I’ve been trying to figure out how to get rid of it. I use Summer’s Eve and I clean myself every day, but it won’t go away. Is there anything else I could do besides see a doctor?

admin answers:

I use to have acne problems as well.

1) Tea Tree Oil
2) Lemon juice
3) Apple cider vinegar
4) Bamboo extract

Tea tree oil is a popular home remedy for acne. It is an essential oil that 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.

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.Also 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.

OR: Here are seven best methods to clear up blemishes.

Tea-Tree Oil
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.

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.

Benzoyl Peroxide
To spot-treat a blemish fast.
How it works: This top acne treatment is an antibacterial agent, killing the bacteria that cause pimples to form, says Gross. Because benzoyl peroxide is so powerful, it helps blemishes go down quickly; just make sure to use a non-comedogenic moisturizer first to minimize dryness. Initially, it can cause dryness and redness. Also, “it bleaches towels and clothes,”.

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.

Richard asks…

How many of you tried proactive and were satisfied with the results? Why or why not. ?

I’m interested in investing since I’ve tried a lot of things. My acne is supple but still very painful and irritating. Or does anyone have other recommended products?
