What is the best skin care advice?

What is the BEST skin care advice that you’ve ever received to clear up acne? The best products, the best home remedies, the best daily activities, I want to know them all! Thanks so much to everybody in advance.

Besides washing your face morning and night (no sleeping in make-up!), toning, and moisturizing, the best advice I had was to see a dermatologist. I was given a prescription that cleared up my skin problems (acne during pregnancy) like a charm.

The best “trick” I ever heard of was for a spot treatment. Pure tea tree oil applied with a cotton swab. Hold it on the blemish until it starts to feel cold (a good 60 seconds). If you do this at night, it will dry up by morning, but the bump might still be there. Careful though, this can be very drying. Only apply it to the blemish.

How to get rid of acne scars?

I’ve recently finished my Accutane treatment, but I have scars. Not big craters but red marks. Could you tell me an efficient way to get rid of them?

admin answers:

There are several ways on removing acne scars. The appearance of acne starts during puberty when the body actively produces hormones that causes too much sebum in the skin. This skin stage may pass but it would definitely leave marks to haunt your appearance forever. Treating acne scars can be done through natural inexpensive ways and dermatological procedures that would probably cost a lot. However, acne scar treatment still depends on the mildness and severity of the scar.

Below are some of the techniques on removing acne scars naturally:

1. Hydration is the key. It has been proven that water is one of the best natural methods to remove acne scars and prevent acne breakouts. Drinking at least 8 glasses of water or more helps your skin to shed those unwanted dead skin cells.

2. A lot of people are recommending the use Vitamin E capsule for those scars. You might apply it topically to the affected area by pricking a spot in the capsule and apply the oil to the scar. Another option is to take it orally to have that cell renewal from the inside.

3. Rosehip seed oil is also an effective remedy on removing acne scars. This is an anti-ageing and anti-wrinkling agent that helps the skin to regenerate. Massage it on the scar twice a day.

4. Eating a balance diet may help in removing acne scars. The more nutritious foods you include in your meal, the faster the scar will heal. It helps in building the skin cells and gives a healthy skin glow as well.

5. Combine rose water and paste of sandal wood and apply it on the spot where the scars are. Leave it overnight then rinse with cold water the next day.

Aside from the natural ways of removing acne scars, there are also dermatological procedures that would definitely give you a much faster result. However, pregnancy and other health conditions may hinder your want to undergo these procedures. Here are some of the hi-tech methods can remove acne scars effectively.

6. Nowadays, not only certified dermatologists do a dermabrasion but facial salons as well. Dermabrasion is the removal of the top skin layer using a machine that chafes off the skin. Once the skin heals, the top layer will then have a smoother and clearer appearance.

7. Laser resurfacing is one of the most affordable anti-scar treatments available. It simply uses a high-energy light that would remove the fine scars and even prevent wrinkles.

8. You may also have a chemical peel procedure. This is just like dermabrasion. The only difference is that the top layer of the skin is peeled off using chemicals not machines. This is not a very advisable procedure for all since some people may have allergic reactions to the chemicals.

What can I do to get rid of blackheads?

My nose and chin have a lot of them and they just keep coming back. I bought bare minerals make up recently and it works really well…at covering up the new acne it’s creating! Anyway products I use already are first astringent, then stridex and then acne free. Once at night and once in the morning. So i have no problem with routine. My face is also pretty oily. So does anyone know a good product for getting rid of black heads?

admin answers:

Black heads are unsightly black dots that appear on the face when pores in the skin get clogged. When pores get clogged, oil gets backed up and blackheads and/or whiteheads form. We all secrete oil from our pores, but some people have more oily skin than others and are more prone to blackheads.

It can be easier to prevent blackheads than it is to get rid of them. Instead of trying a blackhead home remedy, consider these simple steps for clear and healthy skin:

Wash face daily with a mild cleanser and warm water. Be gentle. Don’t use bar soap on the face because it can clog pores.
Gentle exfoliants can be used to remove excess skin cells so they don’t clog up pores. This can also be a good blackhead home remedy if you do get blackheads.
Don’t use make-up on skin that is prone to blackheads. If you do use make-up, use a hypo-allergenic brand.
Avoid oily foods. Instead, eat foods high in beta-carotene, like carrots, cantaloupe, and other yellow-orange fruits and veggies.
If you have blackheads, don’t pick at or squeeze them. That is not a good way of how to get rid of blackheads. It will cause more inflammation in the area and just make matters worse.
Now that we have gone over prevention, lets talk about how to get rid of blackheads. As we said, most home remedies for blackheads do not work.

So, how to get rid of blackheads if preventative measures don’t work? There are a number of options.

Many of the “treatments” used for blackheads can actually cause more damage. For this reason, many people look to try home remedies for blackheads. However, since most home remedies are ineffective, you need to consider other alternatives. Lets look at some treatment options for how to get rid of blackheads.

There are many over-the-counter treatments for acne and blackheads. These may be good for dealing with blackheads when you get them, but they don’t always prevent new ones from forming. Some over-the-counter treatments are harsh on the skin and cause more irritation and can make the problem worse. If you use over the counter remedies, look for one that contains benzoyl peroxide or salicyclic acid.

Clay masks, which can also help prevent blackheads in those with oily skin, is a blackhead home remedy that some people have had success with. Avoid masks that contain peppermint or other mint because those can be irritating to the skin.

There are prescription medications designed to treat acne. One of the most popular of these is Accutane. Medications like these carry the risk of serious side effects, though. For example, Accutane cannot be taken during pregnancy, as it causes birth defects.

There are other treatments that can be provided by doctors, such as a chemical peel. This basically removes the top layer of skin from the face, leaving fresh-looking new skin behind. There is nothing to prevent blackheads from coming back, though. This is a pretty harsh treatment, and is generally recommended only if other treatments fail.

Because many over-the-counter and prescription treatments for acne can be irritating to the skin and may even make the problem worse, many people are now looking for an alternative that can treat the problem naturally and without side effects. Natural treatments are becoming the most popular treatment for acne. The problem though, is finding the right natural treatment for you
