How to get rid of acne?

No kind of product??

admin answers:

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 and scars(:

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 :)

Maria asks…

I need help deciding between these two acne treatment creams?

Okay so first off let me tell you about the type of acne I have. I don’t have extreme acne, but I do have a couple pimples on my chin and one or two on my forehead and sometimes I get little bumps on my nose. Nothing extreme. They are the kind of pimples that are sore and don’t have any puss or sometimes they are the ones with the white spot on the top. I know it’s gross, but I think this will help with the decision at the end. Remember, I only have a few pimples right now. I also have sensitive skin. Okay, so the two treatment creams I am deciding between are both by Clearasil. I am not getting an acne face wash because I have tried many of those and they worked for a while but then I think my face became immune to them and stopped working all together. So I have decided to just try Cetaphil daily face wash. It is really good on sensitive skin and cleans your face very well and I have heard putting together a really good face wash and a strong acne treatment cream will work to get rid of acne. The reason I want to get rid of my acne is because I am 15 and I want to start my sophomore year clear-faced. Okay, so the first product is called Ultra Rapid Action Vanishing Treatment Cream. It says you start seeing results in as little as four hours, it eliminates dirt and oil while treating acne, and it accelerates delivery of maximum strength acne medication. The next product is called DailyClear Vanishing Acne Treatment Cream. It says it works on existing pimples and ones you feel coming, it’s gentle enough for everyday use, and it contains the highest amount of acne medication without a prescription to help clear acne fast. So the reason I am asking this question on Yahoo Answers is because I don’t know a lot about getting rid of acne and I don’t want to make the wrong decision. Please give me some advice. Thank you so much in advance! P.S. Do not recommend anything else. There are two many options and some things that work for other people will not work for me. I have had luck with Clearasil products in the past, so please just read over the benfits of each product and apply that to my type of acne and then choose between those two acne treatment creams.

Any kind of facial wash, you’re leaving something toxic behind, it’s not a matter of convenience, it’s a billion dollar business that can do more harm than good to your acne.

Take a shower everyday, use washcloth to exfoliate and bath & body wash.

Good thinking! Question 6b is True!
After all, people are individuals. And there’s no telling what any individual may be allergic to. According to the cosmetic industry, “hypoallergenic” means “less likely to cause an allergic reaction.” But dermatologists – and consumers who have allergies – know that the word “hypoallergenic” on the label is no guarantee against an allergic reaction.

SENSITIVE SKIN? Skip the gels and waterproof formulas. They contain more alcohol, as well as an ingredient called propylene glycol, which many people are allergic to. Water just can’t get in (sunscreen for ex.) but sweat also can’t get out – which can cause breakouts.

Nope! Question 6c is False!
“Dermatologist tested” doesn’t really tell you much, does it? It leaves you wondering about things like:
•Did the dermatologist work for the manufacturer?
•How many people was the product tested on?
•How long did the testing last?
•What were the results of the testing?

Remember, poison ivy is all natural, too! But you probably don’t want it on your skin. It is very possible to have an allergic reaction, or other irritation, from products labeled “all natural” or “organic.” For example, lanolin, from sheep’s wool, is a common natural ingredient in some moisturizers that sometimes causes allergic reactions.

Acne medication could worsen what ever allergies you have, so instead of trying out one product after another, you’re actually spreading it around.
The less products you use, the better for your skin. Use a bath & body wash like Suave, Irish Spring, Dove Bath & Body wash in the shower, use a washcloth. Treat your face like the rest of your body, take a shower everyday or wash your face everyday.

The secret is keeping your face clean and oil-free. I also don’t use liquid on my face for anything, and very little moisturizer, not even a dime size. Since my face is not dry. Good skin also comes from your good genes. Increase your fresh fruits & vegetables 3-5 servings per day. And programmed your mind to do this day after day, for the rest of your life.

The beauty industry is a billion dollar business, they know acne is everyone’s problem, but instead of saying soap is drying for you, they have to invent an acne product that can worsen the skin as MANY TEENAGERS have experienced during hormonal change, but as you get older those are completely a waste of time & money!
