What is the best home remedies for acne ?

The best thing to do for pimples is to leave them alone. DO NOT PICK OR POP! I find that when I try to get rid of it faster, it leaves a worse scar. However, if you get that really bad zit before an important day, try these

-Toothpaste: plain white paste kind, no gel or sparkles! Dab a bit on before you go to bed and it should be noticeably less red and smaller the next morning. May sting/dry out skin
-Tea tree oil: contains antibiotic/antiseptic properties. Try to get 100% tea tree oil if you can. Do the same as toothpaste. Will also sting/dry out skin
-Hot compress: mostly for large cysts/pustules/boil-like lesions filled with pus… Apply something warm to the affected area, reheating as required. This will help DRAW OUT the pus inside. (note: I have tried this many times for my cystic acne and it has not been very effective for me, however other ppl swear by it and it is a very common, cheap remedy)
-Warm bread dipped in milk: also for cystic acne or boils. Same as the hot compress
-Inside of banana peel: also for cystic acne or boils. Same as the hot compress but no heating
-Bacon: surprisingly also for cystic acne or boils. Same as the hot compress but no heating

Only wash your face 2x a day with an oil-free cleanser. Exfoliate with a scrub or exfoliating cleanser regularly, say once a week. Try not to dry your face with a towel. If you have to, blot it gently, don’t rub! Let it air dry if possible. If it is extremely oily, try oil-absorbing sheets to get rid of that annoying shine.

Steaming your face can also help.
Try masks! Once a week or so, apply a mask over your face. They sell them at pharmacies/drug stores and come in different types, depending on what you want to do for your skin. E.g. Remove blemishes, lighten complexion, purify, heal scars etc.
Surprisingly kitty litter is a good mask as it is made of clay. If you can get over the fact that it’s kitty litter, try applying a mask of it to your face and see what it does for you! Leave it on for say 15ish mins and then rinse it off.

Avoid greasy/fatty and spicy foods. These will do your face no good.

How to get rid of acne in 2 weeks?

I’m going to Florida at the end of November. My back is covered in acne and red spots. Does anyone have any home remedies/acne creams that worked for them? And please don’t say i should go to my dermatologist because i’ve done that already and it didn’t work out.

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, 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.

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,”.

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.
