Get Rid Of Acne Fast Yahoo

Michael asks…

Does toothpaste help with acne problems?

i have acne and i want to know if toothpaste actually works.

admin answers:

Yes Javier.

Toothpaste works well on acne because it dries out pimples fast. The reason why has to do with the mint ingredients in the base formula of many popular brands. If you ready to give this homemade remedy a try, here’s what to do.

Avoid the ones that are gel or formulated with tartar control. The brand you should go for is one like Colgate (original formula) or Crest. These toothpaste brands are the popular ones people use to get rid of their acne.

With your finger, apply a dab of toothpaste over each pimple. Be sure the dab of toothpaste is enough to cover each pimple completely. It will promote optimum “drying” speed.

Place an adhesive bandage over each pimple. If you are suffering with a lot of acne, you can skip this part. The bandage mainly helps keep the toothpaste in place over the pimple, so it’s an optional luxury of convenience.

Allow the toothpaste to go to work drying out your acne. The time it takes to dry it out varies from person to person, yet you can count on letting the toothpaste sit for at least two hours. You will know it is at work because you will feel a tingling sensation.

Gently wash your face with mild soap and warm water. You need to do this after your acne is dried out. Be sure to remove the bandages before you do it. The goal is to get rid of all of the excess toothpaste on your face in order to prevent any irritation from prolonged use.

Pat dry your face with a towel and be sure to get all of the water and mild soap off of it. Also, pat off any toothpaste residue that might still be on your face.

Im not a dermatologist hehe. I searched for it and was amazed that Toothpaste can really treat acne. Informative question, now I know. I dont have acne though.

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! :)

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!

Avoid putting things on your face with a scent, such as hand lotion. It wil most likely cause more breakouts.

“Non-comedogenic” products are best for your skin. Non-comedogenic simply means they will not make your face break out more. They won’t have a scent or any other harmful ingredients.

You can’t go wrong with washing your face…
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 and scars(:

A healthy diet is also very helpful.. But come on, we all know that isn’t easy. 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, leave scars, 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 :)

Mary asks…

What is a really fast way to get rid of acne. I wash my face every day!?

Any thing I could use? A certain brand of face wash?

Good day.
I’ve often experienced flawed complexion, since I can hold in mind. In fact, I don’t truly recollect having delighted with my complexion. I’ve been confronting skin disorders since I was only ten years old, thus it’s not surprising that I have a very hard moment sympathizing from good friends who have just one pimple, whereas I have a skin packed with full-blow cystic acne. Nobody wants to think that they’re the ugly duckling of their friends, yet unfortunately I am certain I was – I certainly not had dates or dances, whereas my girlfriends have been clinching boyfriends frequently. It truly caused me personally seriously feel left out, and that I suspected it was because of my complexion and ugly pimples.

Hence, recommended by my older sibling, that had also suffered from very severe acne in university, I just tried the web treatment yet somehow I was wary – I had attempted several products and solutions, I wasn’t certain I’d have any genuine success. It wasn’t right up until one morning when I awoke and was amazed at the quality and consistency of my skin – it absolutely was smooth, far less reddish, having just a few small blemishes on my cheeks. It had only been 2 weeks, and I couldn’t have been happier – ’till the end of the month when my skin area was fully clear. It is definitely incredible, taking into account the acne scar has also absolutely faded away.

Most probably this system will aid you also. I could truthfully only offer you a clue but not the direct link. I am worried that yahoo might misunderstood me as spammer and banned my yahoo account. If you ever serious over the plan, simply do a yahoo or google search for the word ‘powerful remedies’, surf on the 1st web site, and click on the menu ‘Acne’. Best of luck.
