How can I get rid of these pimples?

Okay so for the most part, my face is clear of acne. But I find whenever I am stressed about something, a few will pop up here and there. They are two red pimples that are starting to go down but are still very visible. Any home remedies to make them go away faster?? Thanks :)

Mary asks…

How do I get rid of my acne?

I don’t know why I brake out alot but I used to not at all but it’s gotten bad. I’ve been using proactive but it doesn’t really help. I shower every day then started every other day. I noticed during the summer I wouldn’t shower as much and wouldn’t wash my face or use anything and my face cleared up. What should I do?

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 :)

How can I get rid of acne/ zits in like, two days? Help, anyone?

If you can, try to make it inexpensive- like, no me going out and buying anything please. Thank you SO much!

admin answers:

I don’t know about 2 days, but these help me get rid of it fast, and will certainly die it down a TON in 2 days!

Witch hazel. Apply it wet, let it dry on skin. This is an estrangant

tea bag compresses. Make cup of tea, and while drinking it, hold hot tea bag over zit. This brings the infection to the serfus, and the herbs in the tea are good for your skin.
