admin answers:

A real acne you can’t get off in a week. If it’s not very strong, than it might be that you can do it. At least I would give it a try.
The best way to do is making an appointment with an dermatologist..

Paul asks…

What is the best way to get rid of acne?

What is the bet way a 15 year old can get rid of acne in 3 weeks? He has rough skin if that matters. Also, I want a safe way to get rid of it and how to keep away for good.

For over the counter you could try:

-Clear Pore Cleanser/Mask. It uses benzoyl peroxide just like Proactiv but is much cheaper (~$7.00) and can be used as either an on the spot treatment, a face mask as a preventative, or a cleanser/wash
-Neutrogena Salicylic Acid Wash. It uses salicylic acid to clear out pores a sa preventative, lessen redness, and washes off dirt too which is great. (~$6.00)
-Clearasil Salicylic Acid Pads. They work great for after sports when you=re sweaty and is good for if you don’t like gooey on the spot treatments. (~$7.00)

For home remedies you could try:

-Toothpaste. Just dap a little on the pimples and leave it on for a few hours or over night depedning on how sensitive your skin is. Be sure to only get it on the pimple and not on the skin around it or else your skill wll get really dry.This can clear a pimple in even 1 night.
-Crushed strawberries. They have salicylic acid in them so it works similar to the over the counter products. You could try making a combination of strawberries and toothpaste (sounds gross i know) or you could try it combined with Manuka honey (as described below)
-Manuka honey. It’s sometimes hard to find in some stores but a health shop or a pharmacy for sure would have it if your grocery store doesn’t. Just apply to your affected areas from 30 minutes up to a few hours but be sure to wash it all off once you are done.

If you are interested in seeing a dermatologist, you should ask about the following topical products:

-Duac Gel. It is a combination of benzoyl peroxide and the antibiotic, clindamyacin. (Did not really do wonders for me but it did for other poeple) With my insurance it only cost me $10 for brand.
-Epiduo Gel. It is a combination of benzoyl peroxide and the antibiotic, adapalene (often known as “differin”) This really worked for me but I personally had a reaction to the differn which made me experience chest tightness similar to that of a small asthma attack. The chest tightness did not start happening until maybe a week or a week and a half into using it. My friend was also on differin and she got asthma like symptoms too when she never has had them before. It only cost me $15 for brand. This started clearing my face up with being on it for a week.
-Erythromycin Gel. It is a gel made of the antibiotic, erythromycin. This so far has been doing good for me. No side affects luckily. It only cost me $10 for brand. My pharmacy had a hard time finding it though because it’s not made much anymore. So far, I have been on this for 2 weeks and I only have a few pimples left (not including acne spots which according to my doc last a while) and 2 weeks ago I had A LOT allllllll over my forehead. Also, sometimes the gel peels off after a few hours or if you touch your face, so I use the pad version of this in the morning.

I hope this helped

How can i get rid of my acne in two weeks?

Ok so hears the deal i am on winter break and i want to get rid of my acne in two weeks how can i get rid of my acne with out being harsh on my skin. (I have sensative skin)

Here are some tips that might be helpful:
1) Tea Tree Oil
2) Lemon juice
3) Apple cider vinegar
4) Bamboo extract

Tea tree oil is a popular home remedy for acne. It is an essential oil that 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.

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.Also 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 seven best methods to clear up blemishes.

Tea-Tree Oil
To treat mild, occasional breakouts.
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, 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.

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.

Benzoyl Peroxide
To spot-treat a blemish fast.
How it works: This top acne treatment is an antibacterial agent, killing the bacteria that cause pimples to form, says Gross. Because benzoyl peroxide is so powerful, it helps blemishes go down quickly; just make sure to use a non-comedogenic moisturizer first to minimize dryness. Initially, it can cause dryness and redness. Also, “it bleaches towels and clothes,”.

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

Blue-Light Therapy
If you want the latest preventive treatment—and don’t mind plunking down some cash for it.
How it works: Once or twice a week, you use a handheld device to aim a beam of blue light onto your skin. “Its wavelength hits and kills acne-causing bacteria,” so any brewing pimples never come to the surface.

This method will not address existing blemishes. Doctors typically suggest combining blue-light therapy with other remedies, such as topical treatments. To make things easy, consider a blue-light device that comes in a kit. At-home devices are smart alternatives to multiple costly treatments at a doctor’s office.

Oral Antibiotics
If you experience painful bumps below the skin surface and your pimples leave lasting marks. “Oral antibiotics act from the inside to kill the bacteria that cause acne,” says Keri. They also reduce the inflammation associated with pimples, so deep-seated blemishes hurt less and leave fewer scars.

Doctors usually prescribe them to get a severe condition under control and may then switch to topical treatments. Some antibiotics must be taken on an empty stomach, so read the label carefully.
