Clear Acne In 4 Weeks

Paul asks…

How long does it take for skin to get better from smoking?

I know smoking makes your face a dull color, but I also got discoloration on my neck and some parts of my face from smoking.

Any idea when I start healing and having a more clear face or is the damage permanent?
I’ve quit smoking only about 5 days ago but I’m also doing periodic fasts to try to speed up the detoxifying of harmful chemicals from cigs.

I quit 5 days ago too! I think it sucks, but whatever…I will deal (preferably without smoking!). As for the damage, some of it may be permanent depending on how old you are, and how long and how much you smoked (older people can be permanently damaged and it takes longer to heal for them). Usually your color is supposed to get better within days, and over the next 2–4 weeks your blood vessels will start going back to normal (smoking narrows them), so your skin should be glowing and healthier withing the month (and b/c smoking destroys collagen, it could also be plumper).

As for discolorations…well it depends on what sort of discolorations you’re dealing with. I don’t understand what you mean when you say you got them from smoking, but all I know is if they are any kind of hyper pigmentation (like the sort of marks you get from acne or hormonal changes) you will need some sort of product to help you out if you want them gone faster. Consider retin a or hydroquinine, or maybe a vitamin c serum.

How do I get rid of blackheads?

I have at least a 100 or so blackheads, and little white bumps covering most of my face. I don’t think the white bumps are blackheads, because when I squeeze them white stuff comes out. I have tried numerous different blackhead scrubs and face wash, and nothing ever changes. They have cleared my acne and pimples up, but not the blackheads. I am tired of having bumps all over my face and I want a smooth clean face. I’m an 18 year old male.

You never get rid of blackheads “for good”. You have to get rid of them,them maintain a regimen to minimize their recurrence. You have a few options that I’ve used- Pore Strips, Blackheadmask, and egg and toilet paper mask-Before you use any method, I would recommend that you STEAM your face first. Be careful though. Get a pot, fill it half way with hot water, get it to boil. SHUT OFF the stove, and place your face above the steam. Again, be careful. You can also get a towell, soak it in hot water, and cover your face with it. Just make sure it’s not hot enough to burn your skin.Then, do whatever treatment you want to do.
After the treatment/strip/mask- Rinse your face with COLD WATER, then close your pores with either 1.salicylic Acid, or 2. Benzoyl Peroxide/acne medication 3. Sulfur ( I use de la cruz 10% but it is very drying) 4. Tea Tree oil (I’m going to be trying this one soon) to kill the bacteria that causes them in the first place. Go to and click on tips, and you will see a tutorial for the toilet paper mask- Second video. You can also purchase the mask (20$) but shipping takes a couple of weeks, and the egg method is FREE and available to you now. Hope this helps. Good luck!!!

How do i get rid of acne marks?

I dont have a big problem with acne but about 5 weeks ago i got a HUGE pimple that was gone in about 2 weeks buit it left a big dark mark on my skin and it looks ugly. Any suggestions of how to get rid of it?

Pimples is a unique skin disorder.Pimples are lesions that occur when the skin’s pores are obstructed or infected.They can form for a variety of reasons.However,the mechanism involved in causing some pores to collapse and block drainage of natural oils is not really understood. Pimples may also crop up for genetic reasons. It is not clear how it can be inherited from one’s parents, but studies do indicate a high occurrence of pimples in children whose parents had it,too.
The pimples associated with adolescence almost certainly occur because of hormonal changes that take place during puberty. Both males and females get an overdose of the male hormone testosterone during this period,causing excessive generation of sebaceous fluids that invariably cause pimples.


1.The most basic form of pimple prevention is hygiene and preventive skin care. Regular washing of the affected areas with mild soap is a must.The soap need not necessarily contain any chemicals designed to prevent pimples .However, face washing should not be overdone or the skin will become dehydrated .

2.Care should be taken on makeup,moisturizers and other skin care products.If these products are oil based,it would just make the problem worse. Use water based products instead.

3.Generally we rub, press or squeeze our pimples.Don’t when we do this,we risk spreading the bacteria to other areas.

4.Lemon juice diluted in water can be applied externally because of its antiseptic

5.Tea Tree oil can also be applied directly to infected pores.

6.Vitamin A tablets are also a natural and effective cure. Vitamin A promotes healthy skin.

7.Before bathing, apply a mixture of fresh tomato pulp, honey and rose-water to your face and keep for twenty minutes before washing off.

8.Juice of raw papaya is the best treatment for pimples.Apply fresh juice of raw papaya on pimples and get a good result.

9.Directly rub potato slices all over the face, helps to get rid of blemishes and
pimple scar.

10.Drink plenty of water and vegetable or fruit juices.

11.Use cucumber or other fruit and vegetable packs to cure pimple scars.

12.Maintain a diet that is rich in cottage cheese, salads, fresh juices, fish and
yogurt.These help to cleanse your system and ward off pimples.

13.Another overnight home remedy for pimples is to put a dab of toothpaste on it to help dry it out. Calamine lotion also will have the same drying effect.

14.Pound orange peel with water and apply to affected areas.

15.Another useful remedy for pimples is zinc. Which can be taken in a dose of 50 mg daily for a month and then reduce the dose.

16.You can clean your skin with apple cider vinegar as an overnight home pimple remedy.

17.Aspirin contains Beta hydroxy acid which is a powerful defoliant ,so you can crush 1to 2 Aspirin tablets mix with a little water and apply on pimples for 15 minutes and wash.

Finally,certain medications may temporarily alter the hormonal changes prevalent during adolescence and cause pimple outbreaks. If this is the case, a simple adjustment in medication may be all that is required.
