There are many ways to cure acne. You have to experiment to find what is best for you. Everyone is different, so don’t give up!

You can’t go wrong with washing your face… Of course, this doesn’t always help those severe cases.

The BEST treatment is prevention! My answer is already pretty long, so here is a good link(:

I always wash my pillow cases every week or so. It really helps!

I recommend a good, non-comedogenic facewash, so it won’t cause any other breakouts.

Avoid putting things on your face with a scent, such as hand lotion. It wil most likely cause more breakouts. Again, use non-comedogenic products.

Wash your face twice a day, with the hottest water you can stand. Hot water will open those pores for a much more thorough clean. Rinse with cold water to close those pores back aswell!

Now when you are buying face wash.. You will notice there are two main active ingredients to treat acne.
- Salicylic Acid
- Benzoyl Peroxide

Both are very effective treatments. When used together they can be even better. Just make sure to keep your skin moisturized, they will dry your face quickly.

Salicylic Acid – Works by causing the cells of the epidermis to shed properly. This prevents pores from being clogged. The acid is also known to break down black heads as well as whiteheads. It also allows your skin to absorb more benzoyl peroxide.

Benzoyl Peroxide – Removes dead skins cells and fights bacteria. When used correctly, it can also reduce redness. Probably the most effective by far.

Here are some other options if you want to experiment with at-home methods…


I prefer to use natural products myself. Tea Tree oil has been proven to work as well as Benzoyl Peroxide with less side effects. Although it takes longer to show results. It isn’t for everyone!

Some research suggests vitamins such as A and all of the B Vitamins help with acne. Here’s the link for that.. Http://

Like I said before, everyone is different, so give everything a try! Here is a wiki article, for extra info!


Rubbing Alcohol… Will fight bacteria that cause acne. But alcohol will deffinatly dry that face fast, and potentially cause redness.
* This can actually make acne worse if you dry out your skin… Use in moderation and moisturize often.

To even skin tone and also fight acne I use an Alpha Hydroxy Acid lotion at 10% strength, 3 times a week. It also helps with wrinkles(:

A healthy diet is also very helpful.. But come on, we all know that isn’t easy. Especially when you’re a kid and your parents call the shots on the food! Here’s a link for tips on dieting to improve skin. Http://

Moisturizing is VERY important for a healthy face. It will prevent a lot of dryness. When you get dryness and cracks in the skin, you are just asking for more acne.
Always remember to use non-comedogenic products.

* If you don’t moisturize, your face will become oily, making you want to touch and wipe your face, spreading bacteria and other crap into those pore! Plus oil is more likely to attract dirt and dust.

Finally, NEVER touch your face. It’s probably the worse thing you can do. Besides popping your pimples… If you pop them, it will make them spread, or even get infected. I don’t advise popping them… But if you really must… Do it the right way! Here is a wiki article.. Http://

Remember not to be discouraged. Everyone gets acne. It’s normal. You just have to experiment to find out how YOU can control yours. Good luck :)

How do I get rid of face blemishes like pimple scars?

Are there any products that actually WORK to get rid of acne scars? My face used to get a lot of pimples and it’s cleared up. My only problem now is that there are scars and blemishes left from those pimples. Are there home remedies, DIY, or any products to get rid of them?

Mild acne scars might fade away in a few days, but some could take weeks, months, and even years to fade away! Scars will heal faster on healthy skin! You can achieve healthy skin by having a healthy diet & lifestyle. Start by eating foods rich in vitamin C which helps heal scars & reduces how much melanin is produced in skin. Melanin is what causes skin to darken. Scars can become darker & more permanent if you are in the sun without wearing sunscreen! Homemade or over the counter scar fading treatments will help remove MILD scars. SEVERE or DEEP scars will have to be removed by a professional doctor. You can always go to the doctor for a quicker & stronger treatment to remove MILD scars also.

1) Wash face with warm water & cleanser, preferably Purpose Gentle Cleansing Bar by Johnson & Johnson
2) Apply toner, preferably Witch Hazel, because its gentle & non-irritating
3) Apply homemade or over the counter scar fading treatment
4) Apply oil-free sunscreen or a moisturizer that contains sunscreen
5) If you wear makeup, you can use an oil-free foundation that contains sunscreen

1) Hydrogen Peroxide. Using a Q-Tip, apply to the scar only! Do not use all over face! Dilute with water if to strong!
2) Lemon Juice. Cut open a fresh lemon. Using a Q-Tip, apply to the scar only! Do not use all over face!
3) Organic Apple Cider Vinegar With The Mother, such as Bragg. Using a Q-Tip, apply to the scar only! Dilute with water if to strong!
4) Aloe Vera. Apply aloe to the scar. Buy an aloe vera plant or use Lily Of The Desert Aloe Vera Gelly, it’s 99% organic, contains vitamin A, C, E! Don’t use other brands of aloe, has very little aloe & to much junk in it which can irritate skin!

Only Use Oil-Free Products That Won’t Clog Pores & Cause Acne!
1) Murad Post Acne Spot Lightening Gel
2) Sudden Change Scar Zone
3) Mederma
4) Ambi Fade Cream For Oily Skin (for people of color)
5) Salicylic Acid, Alpha Hydroxy Acid, Beta Hydroxy Acid, Lactic Acid, Glycolic Acid heals acne and scars! Try acid products by Perfect Peel Solutions, Cellbone Technology, Skin Laboratory, Alpha Hydrox/Neoteric Cosmetics.

Six Things Must Be Done Everyday To Reduce Or Prevent Acne! Doing One Or A Few Of These Things Will Not Keep Your Skin Clear As Possible! Do The Following:

1) Wash, Tone, Moisturize Your Face Everyday! Do this at least 2x a day, morning & night (possibly 3rd time, midday, if super oily/sweating). Natural and gentle products are sometimes more effective than acne medication, try this routine: Wash face with warm water & Purpose Gentle Cleansing Bar by Johnson & Johnson. Tone face with Witch Hazel, try Thayers or Dickinson’s, its gentle, minimizes pores, heals acne. Moisturize face with Lily Of The Desert Aloe Vera Gelly, its 99% organic, contains vitamin A, C, E, heals blemishes/scars!

2) Keep dirt & bacteria at bay to prevent more breakouts! Don’t touch face with hands, Clean phone often or don’t let phone touch face, Keep hair clean or don’t let oily dirty hair touch face, Don’t lean face on objects, Clean glasses often, Wash pillowcase, bedsheets, blanket, washcloth, towel often. Wash hands before applying face products. Use fresh makeup, not old makeup. Wash or replace makeup tools often.

3) Eat Healthy Food, Limit Junk Food! Eat healthy food everyday – fruit, vegetables, lean meat, fiber, beans, wholegrains, foods rich in omega 3 fatty acids, zinc, vitamin A & C. Limit intake of frozen meals, dairy, milk, fat, oil, butter, greasy/fried foods, sugar, candy, salt, dessert, caffeine, coffee, pop, alcohol. Always avoid cigarettes, tobacco, illegal drugs! The book, The Clear Skin Diet by Alan C. Logan & Valori Treloar has detailed information on what to eat & not to eat to help reduce or prevent acne & it explains the hormones involved in acne & how to control them with food!

4) Take A Multi Vitamin Mineral Supplement Everyday! Its hard to get all the vitamins minerals your skin needs on a daily basis, so take a supplement everyday! Caution! Overdosing on vitamins and minerals whether from food or supplements is toxic and dangerous!

5) Drinking about 64 oz of Pure Water everyday improves skin quality, flushes out toxins, delivers nutrients to skin! You can also include 100% Fruit Juice as part of your daily total.

6) Doing 20 to 30 minutes of Aerobic Exercise everyday (or every other day) increases circulation & delivery of nutrients to skin cells, encourages good blood supply, helps remove toxins, controls acne breakouts! Stay hydrated by drinking water before, during, after workout! Immediately take a shower to remove sweat and dirt!

Take a shower hotter than usual, soak a small towel with the water and put it on ur face. It may feel uncomfortable at first, but it feels better after a couple of seconds. Then wash with a mild soap. While ur do that every night, put toothpaste on ur acne, yes TOOTHPASTE. And then try eating healthier and drinking a lot of water.
