Treatments For Acne

John asks…

What is a good natural treatment for acne?

I am 17 years old and I have acne. I am looking for some natural prevention methods of acne. No creams or anything. I heard that eating cashews helps prevent acne. Are there any other foods I should eat or other natural methods of prevention?

admin answers:

Okay apparently people are missing your keyword “natural”. One method that has always worked for me is apple cider vinegar. I use it as a toner and I also make two beverages a day with it. That really helps keep my skin clean and clear. After about a month it gives your skin a really nice complexion. Here is a article with the recipe and more info.

How do I help moisturize my skin and control redness under treatment?

I’m undergoing treatment for my acne by my doctor. I have to do 3 different things and one of them is to use Clindamycin Phosphate pledgets twice a day on my face. But as the side effects say, my face is very dry and red. I want to find a product that might help with the dryness and redness of my skin during this treatment. Any suggestions?

admin answers:

You can moisturize with any noncomedogenic (look for it on the label) moisturizer. If the Clindamycin is causing the irritation, ask for the lotion form as it is not as drying as the pledgets. You may be using other irritating medications such as benzoyl peroxide and a retinoid (differin, tazorac, atralin, retin a, tretinoin and so on) which may also be causing problems. Even if they are changing to the lotion may help the situation overall.
