Treatments For Acne On Face

Ken asks…

How do i get rid of oily skin on nose and black heads?

I clean my face everyday with acne face wash (no oil), use spot treatment , and moisturize, but my nose is still always oily and covered with black heads, how do i get rid of that? Help please

admin answers:

My nose is the same way, it seems like you have a black head in every single pore on your nose, and it’s oily almost all the time. I really don’t mind, these aren’t actually black heads(Unless yours stick out… Mine don’t.) well, they could be but everyone I’ve asked has no idea, and I’ve had them since I was 2 or 3… I just wash my face with normal warm water, rub my nose with a towel and then wash with cold water, and dab it dry with a towel… This normally gets rid of the oily part, but those blackhead like spots are most likely there for good. Learn to love your nose and you’ll be fine. :)

Is there an natural way to get rid of acne?

I have acne on my shoulders and under my jaw line, I use an acne face wash and an after wash cream, but its not going away- do high impact skating 4 to 6 times a week and I sweat for over two hours… Im sure thats part of it but I wash alot… what can I do?

Aloe vera gel mixed with 2 drops of tea tree essential oil works really well and has been shown in studies to improve acne. Doing scrubs is not good for acne at all because it irritates acne so I use warm oatmeal with a little bit of honey to exfoliate which is more gently. A french “green” clay mask works very well also. I started using a papaya mask a few weeks ago and I now have a great glow and less acne!! It removes impurities from deep within and your acne may get worse before it gets better using the french clay.

Papaya mask/exfoliant

Cut the papaya in 1 inch chunks. Blend/mash 2 or 3 chunks and store the wrest in the freezer. Apply the blended/mashed papaya and leave on face for 10-20 min. Use 2 or 3x a week.
The papaya may tingle but that just means that the papaya is working and it is breaking down dead skin cells to give that lovely glow and since it breaks down the dead skin it clears out the pores and in turn they shrink!!! (You may not see the results you want until you use it for a while.)

You should try an organic cleanser. (You can get them at a health food store.) I use a herbal astringent recipe from “The herbal body book” by Stephanie Tourles which you can get cheap on half.com. Works really good and is so soothing. Use a oil free moisturizer or emu oil (http://www.daybreaklavenderfarm.com/store/Emu-Oil-…-DayBreak-s-is-Unrefined-and-Proud-of-it-pr-16676.html) at night on your face, neck and chest. (Emu oil doesn’t clog pores and won’t cause more acne. Promise!! I use it) Try taking vitamins A, E, D, C, B5 vitamin & Zinc. Also eat healthy lean meats, fresh fruits and vegetables. Boxed foods and fast food will make it so much worse!

If you are on a tight budget try this.

Cleanser: baking soda or sea salt.

Toner: Organic green tea, peppermint tea, chamomile tea or aloe vera gel.

Moisturizer: 1/2 cup water 3 tsp. Vegetable glycerin and 5 drops lemon essential oil or oil free moisturizer.

Mask: (use 2 or 3x a week unless you have dry skin.) French “green” clay removes impurities tightens and tones skin. (You can use overnight as a spot treatment also.) Leave on for 10-20 min or until dry then rinse and moisturize.

Papaya mask/exfoliant

Cut papaya in 1 inch chunks. Blend/mash 2 or 3 chunks and store the wrest in the freezer. Apply the blended/mashed papaya and leave on face for 10-20 min. Use 2 or 3x a week.
The papaya may tingle but that just means that the papaya is working and it is breaking down dead skin cells to give that lovely glow and since it breaks down the dead skin it clears out the pores and in turn they shrink!!! (You may not see the results you want until you use it for a while.)

Exfoliant: (use 2 or 3x a week unless you have dry skin.) Warm oatmeal mixed with a little honey. Leave on skin for 5 minutes then rinse and moisturize.

Blackheads: Baking soda mixed with water into a paste and then add tea tree essential oil if you’d like then scrub the affected are 2-3 min. Or apply elmers glue to affected are let dry and peel off like you would pore strips. Works really well!

Daily as a morning toner/moisturizer you can use 1/4 tsp. Aloe vera gel mixed with 2 or 3 drops of tea tree essential oil. Works really well.

Also take vitamins A, E, D, C, B5 vitamin & Zinc. Also eat healthy lean meats, fresh fruits and vegetables. Boxed foods and fast food will make it so much worse!

Hope this helps!!

Charles asks…

Should I moisture my face after applying salicylic acid?

I noticed applying salicylic acid drys out my face, I use it as a treatment for acne. Should I wash my face *after* I apply the acid? Or let it sit inside my skin?

admin answers:

Your skin care routine should consist of Cleanse,Tone and Moisturize/Treatment.
-Wash your hands
-Wet your face
-Apply face wash to face.wash in circular motions for 30-60 secs
-Rinse,Pat dry

-Apply Moisturizer/Treatment.Don’t wash the Salicylic Acid off,just leave it on over night.

If the Salicylic Acid is drying out your skin,use it nightly for about 2-3 days a week,not every single night.Then on the off days,apply an oil free moisturizer(No it will not make acne worse).If you use the Salicylic Acid treatment as a spot treatment,then you can apply it with a moisturizer

Moisturizing your face with an Oil-Free,Non Comedogenic Moisturizer will NOT clog pores,it can actually help acne.That is a very common misconception
