Get Rid Of Acne Forever

Paul asks…

How can i get rid of my acne?!?

I am 26 and I have had acne for as long as I can remember. About a year ago I got fed up and went on Accutane for 6 months and my skin was amazingly clear and had a nice tone and I was so happy to get to spend the rest of my life with clear skin, only to be dissappointed when I moved to southern California and my skin Is worse than I can ever remember! I feel like a monster, its the worst on my forehead but it is everywhere. I am afraid I will have acne forever. Can anyone offer any ideas that have worked for them? Please help

Stress can affect hormones and can theoretically promote acne. I try to do natural home remedies but here are some helpful tips that might be helpful for acne and scar:
1) Tea Tree Oil
2) Lemon oil or juice
3) Mandarin oil
4) Cedar wood – good for eczema
5) Lavender
6) Apple cider vinegar
7) Bamboo extract or Sarna lotion – good for rosacea, psoriasis, eczema 8) Bio Oil or BB cream for dark spots or scars
9) Toothpaste is very effective for acne leave on face for about 20 to 30 minutes then wash.
10) Zinc
11) 2% Erythromycin
12) Benzoin Peroxide

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. 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 other methods to clear up blemishes.

Tea-Tree Oil
Tea tree oil is a popular home remedy for acne. An essential oil 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. To treat mild, and occasional breakouts. This is 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, burtsbees.com). 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.

Sulfur
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.

Retinoid
Nightly to prevent breakouts.
How they work: Retinoid, 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 retinoid 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: Retinoid have been shown to increase collagen production and plump fine lines, making them a good choice if you’re dealing with acne and wrinkles.

James asks…

What’s the BEST way to get rid of acne scars?

I have VERY sensitive skin.
I’ve been trying to get rid of these acne scars, but they seem to be taking forever.
I’ve tried pretty much all natural remedies.
I currently use Vitamin E oil, Sea Buck Thorn, and Scar Zone for my face.

I’ve suffered from acne most of my life, starting with my teens. A lot of times it’s a combination of hormones and genetics (ie. Your family members also had/have acne). These are not things you can do a lot about. As you probably know, breakouts are more common in teens because of hormonal inbalances at that age, so if you are in this age group hopefully yours will eventually go away, as it does for most people.
You probably know there is no magic way to ‘cure’ your breakouts. There are ways to keep the breakouts from happening or getting worse, though. Sometimes over-the-counter stuff (like benzoyl peroxide or salycilic acid creams) can help mild cases, but there is no magic cream that works for everyone. Meanwhile here are some things you can do at home, to help lessen the chance of new blemishes:

- wash your face with an acne-preventing cleanser twice a day If you want you can follow with a benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid gel made for mild acne. (See the ‘acne’ skin care section at your drugstore).
- you can also use a mild face scrub, or face mask (for acne-prone skin) once a week to unclog pores.
- don’t wash your face a lot more than twice a day, unless dirty; don’t overscrub your skin or anything like that. A lot of times irritating your skin just makes breakouts worse.
- for the same reason, use an oil-free sunblock. A lot of times people think suntanning will make acne better – not true. Yes, the first few days suntanned skin may look better, but then it usually breaks out even worse. Suntanned skin is irritated skin.
- try changing your pillowcase every 2-3 days.
- try keeping your hair off your face, especially if you have oily hair or use styling products in it.
- if you wear make-up on your face (i.e. Foundation, face powder etc.), try not to wear it too often. When you do, use oil-free/non-comedogenic (non-pore-blocking) make-up, made for acne-prone skin. Eye and lip products (ie eye makeup, lipstick) are generally ok, unless they happen to get smeared on your face. And never sleep with your makeup on, that’s a guaranteed breakout!
- try not to touch your face when you know your hands are sweaty, dirty etc. This can clog your pores.
- for the same reason try to avoid things being stuck against your face i.e. Cellphone, baseball hat rim, leaning your face on your hands, whatever. If your skin can’t breathe then it gets sweaty – and sweat, as well as the bacteria on most things, can clog your pores.
- NEVER, ever, pop your blemishes, because you end up with scars. A little bit of patience now will save you a lot of trouble later on. Because even if your acne goes away, scars are forever (unless you can afford thousands of $$$ in laser surgery!) Trust me I am speaking from very personal experience here :(

A lot of times there are things you just can’t avoid though, like stress, heat/sweat (if you play sports or are out in the sun a lot), and as I said hormones and genetics. If you find that your breakouts persist or get worse, and the over-the-counter stuff doesn’t help, ask your doctor to send you to a dermatologist.
Good luck…just remember, it usually goes away eventually…and even if not, it is never a hopeless case. Worst comes to worst, you may need prescription stuff to treat it, and you may have to try different things first, but I can almost guarantee that something WILL work. This is such a common problem that there are lots of medications and treatments for it – you just have to find what works for you.
