Mary asks…

Does facial treatment really help in getting rid of pimples and acne?

I have some acne and pimples as well as scars on my face. My friends were suggesting me to go for facial treatment but I’m not sure whether it will really help me in clearing the acne, pimples and the scars.

Should I go for facial treatment?

Ok, I’m 16. I hate acne, so I spent probably a good 15+ hours searching the internet looking for cures. Here are my best

results, and what got them.

1. Go to a local drug store, buy benzoyl peroxide
Important! If your skin is sensitive, start with 2%,
then in a week or so, move to 5%, then 10.
10 is the highest you can go without getting a prescription.

2. Go to pretty much any grocery store, and get “Apple Cider Vinegar”. Yes, it sounds disgusting, and it is. But it keeps

your body healthy which results in better skin. No matter how good of facial stuff you use, you can’t have perfect skin

without a healthy body.

3. Get some sort of face moisturizing lotion, AKA “beauty lotion”. Don’t get normal lotion or it will clog your pores,

causing more breakouts.

4. Get the white (must be white) Dove TM bar soap. Was your face with that.

5. Get apricot scrub. Try to find one with really a really fine grit. Not too chunky. Scrub your face very gently, because

irritation in itself can cause acne.


1. Wash your face morning and night. I suggest using the Apricot scrub only once a day, which will give your skin some time

to heal from the last time you mangled it.

2. Pat-dry your face to prevent irritation. Apply your benzoyl peroxide of choice. Avoid your eye area. It WILL burn your

eye areas. Rub in.

3. Let dry. Apply moisturizer, again do not go around eye areas because the benzoyl peroxide will then be on your hands.

4. Drink a few tablespoons of the vinegar daily (that was enough for me). Tips with that: mix in with some sort of lemonade

mix, or something similar.


Change your pillow-case weekly. Drool, hair, and sweat has all be ground into that pillow case. Think its good for your


Don’t touch your face! But if you do, make sure your hands are at least clean.

Keep your hair from rubbing against your skin.

Wait for your zits to be fully developed for you to get all the nastiness out of them. If they are being stubborn, use a

sterilized needle to break the skin.

Try not to stress about your skin, as hard as that may be, because stress will cause more acne. Everyone gets acne once in a

while (at least) so, it shouldn’t surprise them.

Please let me know what your results are. I spent a lot of time on this article, and I’d be happy to know if this helped

How do I get rid of my Acne?

Okay, currently I’m 14 and I’m really starting to lose all my hope.
About last year I had a perfectly clear face.
This year I started getting really oily skin, and I didn’t really pay much attention to it and didn’t wash my face. Occasionally I was getting zits but they would go away, and I wouldn’t even touch them. So one day I started getting acne all around my mouth, forming a zit-mustache and I started taking care of my face and washing it daily. My acne at the time was mild, and I only had about 4-6 zits around my mouth forming a mustache at the time. I started buying things like Neutrogena Oil-Free cleanser, and Oil-Free wipes to revert my face back to the clear face it used to be. Nothing worked! My acne would eventually go away, but there would always be new acne popping up. I really missed my clear face, and it really started to impact my social life so I started buying Murad acne treatment. It started working great at first and it left me with usually only 1-2 acne on my face. After about 3 weeks of using murad, I would notice that it cleared my acne, but I’d always have 2-3 new pimples after I was so close to having a clear face. I seriously didn’t know what to do at that point, but decided to keep going with murad. Everything started getting worse. I started breaking out horribly, and I tried everything. I spent 30 minutes every night in the bathroom using the cleanser, exfoliate, lotion, and the acne spot treatment. I literally tried everything and washed my face around two times a day everytime it would become oily. I really miss my old clear face, and it’s really starting to lower my self-esteem and I’m starting to hide my face whenever I talk to people. Just the other day I had to call off hanging out with my cousin because I didn’t want him to see how bad I’ve broken out. Basically I have zits all around my mustache, and I have some on my forehead. It’s a really depressive time for me and I really want to just get rid of it, I’ve tried googling every night until 3am but most of the reviews are just made by the actual companies and are scams.

Please, if anyone can help with anything that could help I’d greatly appreciate it. I miss hanging out with my friends, and not worrying about others staring at the red dots on my face. I seriously don’t know what to do and need help, and please don’t recommend accutane because I’ve heard that it has some serious side effects.

I would suggest you try using Jojoba Oil as it is almost identical organically-speaking to sebum, which is the natural oil produced by your skin. As well as being a great natural moisturizer it can also help with acne, Jojoba Oil penetrates into the skin without clogging pores and is suitable for all skin types it contains vitamin E and antioxidants which are great for fighting aging signs and moisturizing the skin.

Studies on jojoba oil show that it has the ability to prevent skin from becoming too oily. This is due to the fact that putting jojoba oil on our skin can trick our cells into thinking they have produced enough oil.

Remove any surface dirt from your skin, then put just a few drops of jojoba oil into your hand and rub it into your skin when you start to work jojoba oil into the skin, the oil penetrates into the pores. As jojoba closely resembles your skin’s own oil, moisturizing with jojoba oil sends the message to your pores to stop overproducing the sebum that causing the oily skin.

For the acne spotspimples:-

Tea Tree Essential oil it has great on acne as it has antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal properties. Simply put a couple of drops on a cotton bud and dot onto each spot. Don’t use it over your entire face as it can irritate the skin for some people.

Lavender Essential oil has well known antifungal and antiseptic properties and is widely used in treating acne. For that stubborn pimples lavender can be applied neat using a cotton bud or pad. Redness, swelling and irritation will be dramatically reduced.

The Lavender and tea tree if applying to larger areas, should be used in dilution for larger areas, I would recommend between 10-20 drops of essential oil to 50ml of jojoba oil.

Hope this helps!
