    • ANSWER:
      Hi Ronald.

      TREATMENT OF ACNE (Self-Care at Home)

      1• Wash once or twice daily with soap and water to remove excess oil from the skin. An acne cleanser purchased over-the-counter in any drug store can also be helpful. Avoid scrubbing too abrasively because this can actually irritate the skin and cause acne to worsen.

      2• Over-the-counter acne medications can be used either at bedtime or during the day. Always follow the directions on any acne product.

      3• Many cover-up products are available without a prescription to improve the appearance of blemishes while they have a chance to heal. Most work well and should not worsen acne.

      4• Some cosmetics and other skin care products, however, can cause acne to worsen. Look for make-up, cosmetics, and skin care products labeled with the word noncomedogenic. This means that it does not cause or worsen acne.

      TREATMENT OF ACNE (Medical Treatment)

      Many treatment options are available to treat all forms of acne. Medications are the main treatment for acne and usually work well. Several preparations are available over-the-counter, while others require a prescription from a doctor.

      1• Over-the-counter medications: Nonprescription or over-the-counter medications for acne are plentiful and can be effective for milder forms of acne. They come in the form of soaps, washes, and cleansers.

      …1.a. Many contain benzoyl peroxide, which does two things. First, benzoyl peroxide kills the acne-causing bacteria, which are thought to play a role in acne. Second, benzoyl peroxide can cause drying and flaking off of skin, which can help prevent the pores from becoming plugged. Plugged pores can develop into acne blemishes.

      …1.b. Scrubbing excessively with any over-the-counter preparation can actually cause acne to worsen by additionally irritating the hair follicles.

      2• Prescription medications: Doctors can prescribe medications when acne becomes moderate to severe or is not controlled by over-the-counter medications. Prescription drugs can be used effectively alone or in combination with other prescription and nonprescription medications.

      …2.a. Antibiotics: Antibiotics can be effective in treating most inflammatory acne (papules and pustules). They work by killing the bacteria and also by decreasing the redness and swelling seen in the inflammatory forms of acne.

      ……2.a.i. Antibiotics may be applied to the skin in the form of gels and lotions, or by way of pills. We now know that using a combination of 2 medications together may be very effective in treating acne. Using a topical antibiotic with topical benzoyl peroxide, for example, may prevent bacterial resistance to the antibiotic. Giving an antibiotic by mouth is often needed for acne that is more extensive, red, and tender.

      ……2.a.ii. Antibiotics taken by mouth can be associated with more side effects than if applied to the skin and may interact with other medicines such as birth control pills. Sensitivity to the sun can result in a “bad sunburn” in some people who take the antibiotic tetracycline by mouth.

      …2.b. Retinoids: Medicines made from vitamin A (retinoids) are useful in treating several types of acne lesions. Topical retinoids are effective in treating the noninflammatory types of acne (blackheads and whiteheads).

      ……2.b.i. Topical retinoids (applied directly to the skin) help to open clogged pores by creating a mild peeling effect. Drying of the skin can be a frequent side effect. Oral retinoids are reserved for treating the more extensive nodular type of acne or severe inflammatory acne, which has not responded to other treatments. Oral retinoids not only have a peeling effect but also decrease the production of oil.

      ……2.b.ii. They can also be associated with a number of serious side effects including birth defects in babies of women who become pregnant while taking the medicine. They can also cause elevated blood fats (triglycerides) and damage to the liver. Your doctor may recommend certain blood tests to check for these problems (and to make sure you are not pregnant) if you are given oral retinoids. Depression and suicidal thoughts have been reported while taking oral retinoids.

      ……2.b.iii. A combination preparation, known as Epiduo gel, containing both the retinoid adapalene and benzoyl peroxide, was approved by the U.S. FDA in December 2008. The once-daily prescription treatment was approved for use in patients 12 years of age and older.

      …2.c. Other medications: A doctor may recommend other types of drugs or therapy to improve acne. For women, medications such as birth control pills or certain “water pills” may be helpful. These drugs counteract the acne-causing effect of male hormones. Newer treatments for acne include the use of light or zinc. Your doctor can advise you whether these types of acne therapy might be good for you.

      Take Care. Regards.

    What is the the best acne scar treatment for African-Americans?
    Until now I have had mild acne but nothing that left any permanent scars. About 3 months ago, I started having really bad breakouts on my forehead and it left a few scars. Normally, I would just apply cocoa butter to the scars and they would eventually go away but I have had these scars for two months and I have seen little to no improvement. Does anyone know of a good acne treatment for African Americans? Preferably something that shows quick signs of improvement.

    • ANSWER:
      My guess is that you do not consume enough citrus in your daily diet, to support the functions at the level of growth you are currently undergoing. So, I would recommend you remedy that, and consume citrus (lemon, lime, orange, grapefruit) daily.

      A spoonful of honey added to your daily diet should also help to nourish your skin and help to heal the acne scars by generating new skin.

      Your skin is your largest organ, and carries your body through life. Treat it nice. :-)

      Give simplicity a try for a week.

      Happy healing!

    What cream is best for acne scars?
    I’ve been looking up creams but i don’t know what to choose. I’ve tried a lot of things but none have worked and I’m just looking for a way to get rid of these scars!
    They’re dark scars left from previous acne.
    It would be great if it’s a drugstore cream.
    Does scarzone or mederma work?
    PLEASE HELP!!!!!

    • ANSWER:
      Scars cannot be removed completely and traces will always be left on the skin. For scars to heal effectively, it is very important not to scratch or squeeze scabs, wounds or acne. There are several treatment options that can improve the appearance of a scar and make it less visible. Over-the-counter or prescription ointments, creams or gels are often used to treat scars.

      Sometimes corticosteroids or antihistamine creams are administered for scars that may cause itching. Scar plasters are sticking plasters that may help to reduce or soften the scar. In cases where scarring is a result of severe acne, your doctor or dermatologist may use pressure treatings or silicone gel sheetings to treat scars. For protruding scars such as keloids or hypertronic, steroid injections may be used. Collagen injections may also be helpful in treating pitted scars.

      Natural remedies
      More and more people are looking for natural and holistic ways to heal scars from acne, chicken pox, injury or surgery. While some topical creams and medical procedures such as dermabrasion and laser resurfacing may lessen the appearance of scarring, they are often very costly and harmful to the skin.

      Natural treatments such as herbal remedies are less invasive and gentle to use on the skin. Herbs such as Galium aperine (Cleavers) and Trifolium pratense (red clover) have a wide range of therapeutic benefits that act as a cleansing tonic, blood purifier and lymphatic cleanser.

      Homeopathic ingredients such as Natrium muriaticum, Kalium muriaticum and Kalium sulphate help to maintain skin health and support the regenerative processes of the skin.

      Oleum Lavandula is well-known for its soothing and healing properties and has been used for centuries to heal and prevent scarring.

      Symphytum has been traditionally used to promote healing and cell regeneration; making it useful for treating scars and skin disorders.

  24. QUESTION:
    Best acne treatment for acne scars?
    Hey I had acne all my life. It been clearing up recently but now i have all these scars please help me?

    • ANSWER:
      Preventing Skin Discoloration

      One of the first and the most noticeable after-effect of a pimple is the skin discoloration where the acne used to be. They are generally darker than the actual skin tone, but this discoloration will usually disappear within a year’s time.

      There are also treatments to speeding up the removal of skin discoloration. Treinoin, Alpha and Beta-Hydroxy Acids are common cures for speeding up the process of healing of the skin, and make the discoloration on the skin disappear faster.

      Surgical Solutions

      Skin discoloration brought about by acne does not often result in deep scars. However, for very deep and very visible acne scars, surgical solutions will be a more effective way of obscuring these scars or making them disappear altogether.

      There are a variety of these treatments for acne scars, usually depending on the type of scar on the skin. There’s punch excision, which is used on very deep scars such as ‘icepick scars’ or ‘boxcar scars’. This involves the excision of the scar and then the edges of the skin are sutured together.

      Meanwhile, laser resurfacing is a treatment that burns the skin up to a certain level. As the skin heals, new skin would then develop which eventually obscures the area where the scar used to be.

      Fillers may also be used to fill in the depressed parts of the skin due to scarring. Fillers used come in different varieties such as collagen and fat. However, the effects of dermal fillers aren’t as long term as the others that were mentioned previously. Dermal fillers require regular re-injections to maintain the smoothing effects on the skin.

  25. QUESTION:
    Which cream is best for acne and acne scars?

    • ANSWER:

    • ANSWER:
      The results of TCA peel are frequently less dramatic than and not as long lasting as those of a phenol peel. In fact, more than one TCA peel may be desirable to realize the most wanted result. The improvement from a TCA peel is usually shorter than with a phenol peel. Phenol is the strongest of the chemical liquid and makes a profound peel. It is used mostly to take care of patients with coarse facial wrinkles, areas of blemished or damaged skin caused by sun exposure or precancerous growths. Because phenol sometimes lightens the treated areas, your skin pigmentation may be a determining factor as to whether or not this is an appropriate treatment for you. I suggest you look for more information on www.chemicalpeel.org

    They’re mostly on my forehead and some on my chin. They’re raised, not indented, if that means anything.

    I don’t mind spending a little more money or waiting a month or to for a quality product that WORKS.
    Would rather not have any procedures or surgeries, but I’ll keep an open mind.

    Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      Steph !
      # pply sandalwood paste with rosewater and leave it overnight over the scars. You can even apply a mixture of sandalwood paste and black gram paste.
      # For dark acne scars use lemon juice. Before applying, clean the scars with warm water and dab 1 tsp of lemon juice into a cotton ball and apply it on the scars and leave it for 10-15 minutes. Make sure to apply sunscreen prior to going out in the sun as lemon juice makes your skin photosensitive.
      # Cucumber with lemon juice or honey with lemon juice also helps. Honey also helps for chicken pox scars. However people with oily skin should avoid the use of honey.

    2. Doesn’t cause breakouts
    3. Doesn’t hurt sensitive skin
    Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      Acne is caused due to the wrong food habits and improper skin care. It is also caused due to hormonal changes. Another important cause is the high level of insulin produced by processed carbohydrates. This excess level of insulin creates blockage in pores and extra oil under the skin. Acne is an extreme condition of sebaceous glands. When hair follicles are plugged with dead cells and sebum, acne is formed. There are many ways to eliminate acne scars at home.

      Blackheads are the starting stage of acne. Blackheads are caused by the accumulation of dead cells in the pore. At starting stage, they appear black. Then slowly, the color changes to red. Best ways to get rid of blackhead scars and acne are listed here. These are the best home remedies.

      * Apply orange peel paste on and around the pimples.
      * Apply garlic on and around the pimples to remove it without a mark.
      * Zinc, Vitamin A, Vitamin B and Vitamin E are the best nutrients to cure the acne. So take a balanced diet full of nutrients and vitamins.
      * Mix lime juice and rose water in equal proportion. Apply it on affected areas and allow it to dry for 10 minutes.

      Even after the treatment, acne leaves scars. Excellent home remedies to remove acne scars are listed here. Follow these tips to get rid of the acne scars.

      * Rub ice cubes on face for 10 minutes to tighten the pores.
      * Cucumber juice can also be used to tighten the pores. Apply it and allow it to dry for 10 minutes.

    • ANSWER:
      lemon juice helps with acne scars.
      i’ve used some for about 3 months and its practically gone.
      leave the lemon juice on the place where there’s acne scars, then leave it on for 10 mins . wash it off with warm water THEN shrink your pores, rub an ice cube all over your face. it only makes sense (warm water opens up pores, ice is very cold so it closes them). which could prevent you from having any more acne on your face.

    • ANSWER:
      The Perils of Acne

      Acne is a skin condition faced by teens and adults. It is predominantly caused by the clogging of oil glands and the resulting inflammation. For some, it is not just a matter of having pimples on the face but a potentially disfiguring condition. Acne often leaves scars on the face. Remember, your mom telling not to squeeze that annoyingly ripe-looking pimple sitting on your nose? She was right.

      Then, what should we do? What are we going to make the scars go away? And how do we stop acne from making our lives so difficult? How do we start acne scar treatment?

      Getting In Touch With Mother Earth

      It is not a hippy or flower-power thing. Getting in touch with Mother Earth is a healthy and wholesome way. And Mother Earth has some helpful tips and suggestions for all types of problems, including acne scar treatment.

      One good way to start working hand-in-hand with Mother Earth is going the natural or herbal way. This method is gentle and non-invasive. Furthermore, you will get to know the benefits of herbs and plants.

      So, what does Mother Earth has to say about acne scar treatment? Listen to her wisdom

      Water

      Water makes up seventy per cent of Mother Earth. And water is essential to the physical well being of every living being. The skin of your body is also made up of water and it is important to drink a lot of water to keep your skin (including the skin of your face) well hydrated.

      Remember to wash your face regularly with clean water. Clean water also cools the inflammation and keeps scarring at bay.

      Herbs

      Look around you. You are surrounded with lush plants and greenery. They are soothing to your senses… and they might also play an important role in acne scar treatment.

      There are some herbs and plants that might be suitable for treating unsightly acne scars as well as keep them from forming.

      Aloe Vera

      Aloe vera is a good plant to use, especially to cool or reduce the inflammation caused by acne. It is also known for its gentle healing properties when it comes to scars, caused by either acne or other skin irritations. The liquid mucous substance that oozes out when you cut the tip of an aloe vera stalk is thought to reduce swelling and fights bacteria. Apply it to the scars regularly. It also reduces the oily secretions on the skin and acts as a good prevention against acne.

      Lavender

      Lavender smells heavenly. It is known to be good to stop scarring as well. Just use two drops of lavender essential oil and mix it with almond oil. Use medical gauze with this mixture and apply on the scars nightly.

      Dandelion Root

      For many people, the dandelion is a garden and yard pest. Yet, dandelion is known to be an edible herb, rich with nutrients. Dandelion root is great for acne scar treatment as it reduces toxicity and improves skin condition. It is a great purifier of the bloodstream. You can find dandelion root extracts in tablet or pill form.

      Neem

      Known as a revered Ayurvedic herb, neem is a tree found in India. It has anti-viral and anti-bacterial properties. Neem can be used either in oil or powder form and is known to improve skin elasticity. You can also use neem powder to wash your face.

      Tea Tree

      The Tea Tree is found in Australia. It is anti-septic and anti-fungal. Mix two drops of tea tree oil with almond oil. Apply on affected skin/scars with medical gauze. Tea tree is also an effective acne scar treatment.

      Onwards To Healing

      Going herbal is a good way to start working closely with Mother Earth and her wisdom. For people with acne (and scarring) problems, the herbal route might be a suitable alternate as it is gentle and non-medical in nature. Some herbs are known to reduce the swelling and the scarring caused by acne. They are beneficial to the body’s physical well-being.

      If you want to know more, just type in ‘herbal acne scar treatment’ into your search engine of choice. Always carry out some research before you embark on any healing process. It pays to know more information.

      Always remember: Wash your face and do not pick your acne, even if it is ripe and tempting you to squeeze it.

  41. QUESTION:
    Best acne/scar treatment for a pre-teen?
    I have combination skin, and very mild acne(?). I get a couple pimples here and there, but they’re usually inflammatory cystes/nodules and leave deep scars. Also, I sometimes I get annoying whiteheads. Gross. And when I get the inflammatory, huge zits, they’re front and center in my forehead/T-Zone. Fun. NOT. So basically, I get annoying zits all the time, and I have a treasure map on my forehead. I need a good acne treatment for a pre-teen (12) that isin’t expensive. Please, no ProActiv. It’s a tad too expensive. I’m looking for something along the lines of Clearasil, Clean & Clear, etc, and exactly what to get from them. Also, if anyone knows a quick fix for old AND new acne scars; quick being 1-2 months or less; any reccomendations would be appreciated. Thank you.

    • ANSWER:
      HONEY I USE THESE TIPS WITH ANY AND EVERY PERSON I DO MAKEUP FOR IN THE THEATRE DEPT. AT SCHOOL, INCLUDING CLEANSING MY OWN SKIN!

      When it comes to the face, heat is the biggest key. Heat creates an atmosphere for your pores to expand. A hot rag (as hot as you can stand it) across the face is the best bet. As far as a topical treatment, you need to invest in a good scrub and a very fine toner. I tell people this all the time that I do makeup for. Here are some key things to remember when looking for cleansers:

      1. A good scrub needs to have some sort of exfoliant (i.e. microbeads, pumice grains, etc.) in it. Once you have applied the hot rag to your face and opened up your pores, the scrub is used to get deep down into the pores and clean them out.

      2. In a good scrub, stay away from anything that has a lot of soap or fragrance to it. Fragrance = additives that probably will makes things worse. Your main ingredient when looking for a scrub is salicylic acid. Salicylic acid acts as an antibacterial to cleanse deep to break up the blackheads and fight the bacteria causing them.

      3. A good toner should be found because once the skin is clean, the toner is used to tighten the cleansed pores to minimalize the entrance of future bacteria. And sadly to say it (but get over it), A TONER DOES STINK! Its made primarily of alcohol, so it will stink! Get over it! It’s worth it!

      4. Lastly, and a lot of people don’t think about this, find a light lotion with an added sunscreen (at least SPF 15). You want a light lotion (nothing fancy or fragrancy) with a sunscreen to prevent dryness from the toner and the sunscreen will help protect from sun damage (obviously!).

      Always remember to catch blackheads before they start (before they become pimples)! And for the love of God: DO NOT PICK AT A PIMPLE IF YOU GET ONE! Picking only creates more infection from the bacteria on your hands….and most importantly: it’s just GROSS! Some brands to try for a scurb or toner would be: Oil of Olay, Biore`, Clinique, Clean & Clear, Clearasil…….just to name a few! Also remember to drink lots of water to help keep down ure intake of oils. Oh and p.s. to guys who are reading this: just because girls use it in a commercial DOES NOT mean that a guy cannot use it too! A girl would like it a lot more to see a guy with a clean face and a cabinet full of girly skin care stuff, than Mister Zit next door! I’m gay….trust me on this!

    Currently I am using Clean & Clear 3 step (skipping the moisturizer but using toner instead) to try & get current acne under control. Does it matter what products/cleansers are used when attempting to fade acne scars?

    • ANSWER:
      After I took Accutane and had reddish marks left over, I just used Polysporin. It is quite cheap, and you put it on three times a day. It reduces the look of scars, but made my marks completely go away. You just need to be a bit patient with it.

In fact you can use this method to treat just any type of scars you are having on your body.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    What Lotions/ Oils are best to reduce acne scars?
    I use Tea Tree Oil face wash morning n nite.
    With Witch Hazel in the morning n Cocoa Butter.
    N at nite i use with Vitamin E oil n Cocoa Butter.

    N still i get acne n scars? what am i doing wrong?

    Not going to use Proactive. does not work for me. n off the counter like neutrogena n noxema n all that irritates my skin.
    Face Acne.. my bad.

    • ANSWER:
      I have two prescription medications and I rotate between the two.

      One is called MetroGel and it is a gel.

      The one that seems to work best though is called Akne Mycin, but it is a cream.

      The Akne Mycin cream is a bit obvious that you have white stuff on your face, and is best to wear overnight.

      The MetroGel is nice because it is not noticeable that you are wearing anything.

      Now, as for the scaring…

      I bought some body creme from Victoria Secrets and have been using it on my face. It has made my face look much smoother over the past few weeks! One time I put it on right after a hot shower when my pores were open and it stung a little, so I wet a wash-cloth and wiped it off some and the sting went right away. It smells fantastic and totally turns my husband on too! Anyways, it’s called Heavenly Body Creme by Dream Angels. The kind I’m using came in an 8.4 fl oz. container and says Shimmering Angel Whipped Body Cream. It has some sparkling to it. I haven’t found it online, but maybe if you went & asked your local store… Here is an address to some of their regular creme which may work better, I haven’t tried it.

  2. QUESTION:
    what is the best facial lotions for acne scars?
    and they aren’t bad scars, just blemishes

    • ANSWER:
      For acne scars try using creams that fight acne AND have bleach in them. Products with Benzoyl peroxide usually have bleach. The bleach fades the acne scars and reduces redness! Go to your local drugstore and read the back of some of the creams…the cream should have Benzoyl peroxide and bleach at the top of the list. I found one that has moisterizer in it as well! I would look for that one so your skin doesn’t dry out. Good luck!

    i want to cover up acne but still look as natural as possible. thanks!

    oh and best face lotion for acne prone skin?

    oh and anyone get rid of back/chest acne? how?

    • ANSWER:
      I swear I never had acne until the very end of my sophomore year of high school, but then it hit me bad. The downsides to being a late bloomer? Anyway, I have what is called nodular acne as well as the regular stuff. I hope you don’t have it, it’s terrible. Nodular acne is a few, firm, red bumps, larger than normal acne that do not have puss, they are under the skin, last for over a week, and they scar, badly. The only way to get rid of nodular acne is to grow out of it, or do what I am doing and talk to a dermatologist. They are amazing. Truly.

      If you’re lucky and just have the normal white head acne with minor scarring, then a decent acne fighting system should do the trick. I use neutrogena’s “No Stress” acne system, which is seriously one of the better ones I’ve come by. I’ve also used Clean and Clear, generic Proactive, and numerous others, but neutrogena seems to work the best for me. As with any acne medicine, there was a little dryness, but not much. That combined with a birth control pill is enough to keep my regular acne completely under control.

      I also use neutrogena’s concealer that is designed for acne prone skin, and I’ve never had a complaint. It is sheer and natural and does enough covering for me. The meds I am on now to get rid of the nodular acne are severely drying on my skin, so the lotion I use now is called “Cetaphil Daily Advance” and is sold in Kroger and Walmart by the shampoo and body care section. It is magic for dry skin, however, this and the similar cleanser are not made to fight acne.

      Someone has come out with a body wash for acne skin, I just can’t remember who, hopefully someone else will know, but a lot of brands do now.

      Basically, keep your face clean and your hands off it, drink lots of water to stay hydrated (it works), try not to cake on your makeup as that will just clog your pores more, and if you still are not happy with your skin, go find a dermatologist.

      Good luck dear, acne is one of the worst hits you can take to self esteem I feel. Good luck again, and now I’m going to bed (lol said that last question too…)

  6. QUESTION:
    What is the best soap or lotion for getting rid of acne scars that I can get at local stores?
    The one that works the fastest.

    • ANSWER:
      To fade an acne scar will be easy. All you’ve got to do is exfoliate regularly.

      Exfoliation is simply the removal of the top layer of skin (called the epidermis).

      This layer can be removed by using Glycolic Acids and or Salicylic Acids (chemical peels). Or mechanically (microdermabrasion)

      By regularly removing the epidermis…you’ll also be removing the skin that is scarred by your acne.

      To remove the scar quickly…

      …I recommend visiting a doctor and inquiring about a deep facial peel.

      A deep peel removes the epidermis at a greater depth. And as a result the scar will disappear in no time.

      But… I must warn you that deep peels are expensive.

      You can also remove the scars with at-home facial peels. These products usually contain alpha-hydroxy acids and/or beta hydroxy acids.

      Or you can buy a facial scrub. This is a cream which contains tiny particles to scrub away the epidermis.

      These at home versions are effective and less costly.

      But…

      …they work slower than the doctor’s versions. And you must use them at least 3 times a week if they are to be effective.

    Whats the best home remedy for acne scars and fine lines/crows feet? And whats the best lotion for tanning?
    I have some acne scars that are somewhat noticeable but whenever I look in the mirror on cloudy days it makes my acne scars more visible and it really bugs me. I need a powerful home remedy that I can use that will get rid of every acne scar on my skin in lets say, a week?

    Next I have these stupid lines or crows feet that are a pain and don’t do well socially in public. Anyone know a good home remedy for crows feet? I need those gone in a week as well.

    Lastly I’m working on a good dark tan but its not going to be sunny for the next few days until Friday. Whats a really good tanning lotion that I can use that is cheap and lasts a long time?

    I’m doing some research on the web as an assistance. I’d really like some HONEST and serious answers. I have a graduation party coming up and I want to look good, really good and this is in a week.

      Jasmin just posted this regarding my home cure for ridding face of scars.
      Try it – you will be happy that you did!

      From Jasmin
      “My advice? LISTEN TO MUKUNDA M!!! He knows what talking about. I directly emailed him because he’s gotten so many Best Answers for skincare topics. I’ve been doing the oil treatment for a little more than 3 weeks and I can’t tell you how absolutely fantastic the results are. Seriously. You will not be disappointed.”

      TREATMENT
      I’ve had incredible results simply massaging with essential oils. Oils such as olive, grape seed, sweet almond, and lavender (it needs diluting as too strong used neat) are good and have been used by skin specialists to successfully treat and cure acne. They do not clog, cause breakouts and surprisingly, lessen skin’s over production of oils. Rid me of acne and healed ALL of my many (some severe) skin conditions and removed all blemishes and scars and gave me a totally clear, healthy and radiant skin.

      It’s best to thoroughly and quite vigorously massage into skin. In just two days you will start seeing results. Skin will start clearing and will tighten, look and feel smoother and firmer.
      If focus massage on any scars, blemishes and make massage more vigorous this will greatly minimize them. Overtime massage will rid face of them all.
      Oils are perfect moisturizers. Do not remove. Simply splash face with water and dab dry with tissues.

  8. QUESTION:
    What is the best body wash or lotion to help reduce the appearance of minor acne scars?
    Acne has never been a huge issue for me, but for the time it was, it was mainly on my chest and upper back. There are only minor small round scars there, but they haven’t much diminished. I’d kind of like to get rid of them. Is there a body wash or lotion (lotion that wont STICK to my clothes) that will help reduce these scars? Thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      Acne is produced because of the reaction of sebum and bacteria that produces infection. So you need to stop that bacteria, and for acne scars, if you don’t have acne anymore. You can take an acne scar treatment that can improve mild scarring, some skin care products that take care of post-inflammatory changes, which are early acne scars. The redness can take up to 6 to 12 months, the post inflammatory red changes are normal to be there because they are part of the natural healing process of your skin and after no more acne pimples or lesions develop in that area, the skin will be completely healed.

  9. QUESTION:
    What is best for fading acne scars?
    I have already heard of mederma and proactiv lightening lotion, so I am wondering what else is out there and what has worked best for others.

    • ANSWER:
      You can use skin fladers or lighters…

      Any product that contains “Hydroquinone”. It is a skin bleach, but it is mild enough if under 4% to not burn you. I was first prescibed 4% by my doctor (dermatologist) for acne scars, but you can get 2% at almost any drug store (Walgreens, CVS), Walmart or On-line.

      Here is a list of over 200 different products that contain “Hydroquinone” (wait for page to load, its comming…)

      http://www.shopping.com/xGS?KW=hydroquinone&BSC=1

      Some of these are ‘pricey.” But, if you go to your doctor, your insurance will probably cover it for free and you’ll probably end up with a stronger one than you can buy at the store.

      Here’s something quick, you can pick up at any drug store.

      You may try out these remedies at home that will help you to get rid off acne marks and cure your face.

      * Take the fresh juice of lemon and dip some cotton wool in it. Pat your face with the cotton and let it dry. Some people may find the lemon juice irritating. In that case, you can dilute it in some water or rose-water. Let it dry for 15-20 minutes and wash your face with water after that. Do this at least four times a week and you will find considerable change.
      * Make a paste with some sandalwood powder and rose-water. Add 2-4 drops of lime juice to it. Apply this paste on your face and neck and let it dry completely. After that, rinse your face with cool water and wipe off the paste with cotton wool. Do this on a regular basis (twice a week) to get good results.
      * Apply cucumber juice on your face with cotton wool. In summers, you can do this almost daily as it helps cool off the skin and tighten the pores. Cucumber juice is very helpful is making your skin glow and make it feel fresh.
      * A popular homemade remedy for removing acne marks is to make a paste of apple and honey. Make the apple paste first and then add 4-6 drops of honey. Apply this mask on your face. Wash off after 15 minutes. This will tighten pores and make your complexion light.

  12. QUESTION:
    In your experience, what is the best acne product out there?
    I’m having trouble finding the right thing for me. I’ve tried proactiv but the lotion made me breakout. And are there any products that get rid of acne scars besides products such as coverup?

    • ANSWER:
      To get rid of acne the closest thing to a “cure” that exists is acutane. Though there are risks involved its totally worth it and will help you get rid of you acne once and for all. Ask your doctor about it.

      When washing your face use something non-comodegenic (doesn’t clog pores), and gentle. Also exfoliate once a day and moisturize.

      To get rid of scarring you can try chemical peels (fairly cheap) and there are lots of different laser procedures out there. I don’t know which is best or anything but I’ve heard good things about fraxel treatments (which are really expensive)

  13. QUESTION:

  15. QUESTION:
    Help! Best treatment for acne and acne scars? (pics)?
    Hi.

    I am fairly new to this forum, and have posted around this subject a few times, but i have added a photo incase it could help.

    I am a 22 year old chinese male living in the UK.

    I have tried every type of off-the-shelf product available to get rid of my acne and none of it has worked.

    I have lots of hyperpigmentation marks from previous spots as well as 2 or 3 new spots forming every other day, and its stressing me out, which is probably causing more spots.

    I currently use ‘Clean and clear exfoliating daily wash’ everyday, as well as a honey/aspirin mask 2 or 3 times a week and benzoyl peroxide cream directly on new spots. I also eat fairly healthily, and take zinc and vitamin supplements everyday.

    I would like to try Retin-a, but do not have easy access to a dermatologist. I asked my regular GP about what would help prevent spots, and she was pretty clueless, and just looked in her book for a solution. She prescribed me with ‘Dalacin T topical lotion’, which didn’t work and only led to more and more spots.

    undefined

    I am also going to try a salicylic/lactic acid peel, which i have just ordered.

    Any other advice?

    Cheers

    • ANSWER:
      • Hey There ! I’m a dermatology student and by following this, is best way to get rid of acne scars. With all my patients I’ve seen some pretty horrible acne scarring completely healed. You need effective products and treatments which will heal the damaged cells in the skin. Try the following:

      1) Mandelic acid based skincare treatments are BY FAR the best skincare products on the market for post acne scars. NuCelle (http://www.Nucelle.com) have the largest range, and have been clinically proven to be effective. Mandelic acid is the meant for acne scar sufferers and is the most gentle skincare product which minimizes inflammation and redness. For best results, use the serum, use the face wash, toner and moisturizer too. Also, protect your face from the sunlight and heat while you’re treating your scarring, as it will quicken the healing/restoring process. For more info on mandelic acid, visit http://www.mandelicacid.net

      2) Look into getting IPL (Intense Pulse Light) laser treatment. IPL is a laser treatment which works by eliminating the enlarged capillaries in your face which causes redness and scarring. It’s completely safe and healthy too !! (My 11 year old brother had it done go get rid of a scar from hockey). You can get it done at most spas or laser centers. If you have about 2-3 treatments and use mandelic acid products on your skin, your scarring and redness can pretty much go away for good !

I get a few pimples every other day or so, and I’ve recently noticed some scars on my face. Now, I used to pop. Don’t anymore. I’ve used pretty much every face wash there is over the counter and from a doctor.

    Benzoyl, Retinol, Retinol A, Tetracyclin, birth control, clean and clear, bar soaps, lotions, creams, pads, microdermabrasions, acne free, pro-active solutions, neutrogena, oil of olay, loreal…

    Pro-Active seems to be working the best for me, but my acne and scars won’t go away. I’ve searched home rememdies too, and Ive got VERY sensative skin, so I’m afraid to try honey and lime juice or whatever the heck it was. Please, can anyone offer some REALLY good advice?

    Could I use this to get rid of/fade my acne scars???? even though I am not a baby..LOL..
    It has vitamin e and aloe vera in it. It’s the best of both!!(because I need both) and it’s the only thing available near me, that has a mixture of both.
    hmm, Maybe I should just buy them both separately?
    Would it really make any difference?? Would this stuff work just as good, even though it’s in the form of a Baby lotion??

      I do not think you should use baby lotion on your skin, even if your a baby. It clogs pours. Aloe and vit.E are good skin healers and can be applied directly to the scars.

  27. QUESTION:
    My friend has acne scars (not dents in her skin, but dark spots). Does anyone know how to get rid of them?
    I asked a question a little while back. It was about how my friend had acne on her behind and she tried acne face washes but nothing worked for her. She finally found a cure! YAY! (she used neutrogena clear pore toner after taking every shower, and then applied vitamin e lotion. the acne went away within 2 weeks!!!)

    Now she has another problem and doesn’t know what to do and is still too embarassed to confront her mom about it, so (once again) she confronted me (I’m her best friend). She says that she has these dark-ish, bruise colored spots where the acne used to be (the major pimples). Does anyone know how to get rid of them or atleast make them lighter? My friend would greatly appreciate it =)

    Acne/Scar/razorbump treatment( 10 points)?
    1. What is the best acne treatment? I have been using avon clearskin deep pore srub and avon corrector lotion.
    2. Does Bio Oil Really work for scars? because I have black marks on my face because I would pick my face
    3. What is the best treatment for razor bumps?

    • ANSWER:
      haha i saw your question and i was going to reccomend Bio Oil before I read the little blurb.
      So…

      1. If you have bad acne, I think the only real answer is to seek the advice of your GP or a dermatologist. I used to get quite bad breakouts so my doctor put me on antibiotics and now I use an anti-bacterial ointment-type thing which i just have to put on my face every night, which works; although you need a prescription to buy it. (It’s called ClindaTech)
      Also, apparently salt water is really good for your skin, because it dries out spots but doesn’t break the skin’s natural barriers.

      2. And yeah, I think Bio Oil is really good, I recently started using it again because I have slight scarring from acne, and I’ve noticed that the redness is clearing up. It’s also good because it doesn’t look greasy, so I use it during the daytime :)

      3. And I’m not really sure about razor bumps, sorry…

  30. QUESTION:
    A question about acne scarring?
    Okay please can I have your attention. Be for you answer, please read all of this because I’m tired of getting the same answer that will not solve my problem. I have CYSTIC! acne. A very severe form of acne. Its the same thing but its a disease and its wayyyyy worse. Please research it before you give an answer. I’ve tried everything possible. I’ve used lotions, anti-biotics, home remedies, even the best treatment in the world, ACCUTANE. I still have severe, cystic acne. What more do I have to do? I’m 17. I’ve wasted pretty much most of my life away because of the control my acne has over me. I don’t like going out. People always stare. And I always wonder if they are talking about. I’ve been made fun of an insane amount. I’m actually starting to have emotional problems. I’m a freaking guy! I don’t like crying and breaking down and wondering how I got to this point in life. It feels like my life is a suspense novel or movie or something. You might not think acne can have this kind of affect on people but it does. I’m so use to being that guy who got all the girls. Now I watch my younger bro who is one year younger live my old life. Its like I’m being tormented. I’ve tried everything even prayer. I still have faith in God. I’d never ever give up on him. But some times I get to that point where I just want to give up on everything. I don’t want to go to school anymore. I go there to get made fun of, stared at, and watch others live there happy lifes while I let the anger and depression build up. Please try to understand where I’m coming from. I want an answer to this acne problem. I don’t want to have any scars or anything to remind me of this horrible time in my life. Like because of my acne, I haven’t had a gf in forever. I have no friends any more cause I’m not that well liked any more. I don’t like to go out, I don’t like to go swimming because I have body acne too. I can’t work out because of the body acne. I know life is not about superficial things but how you feel about your self does, and to be honest I don’t like myself anymore. And yes I have asked my parents about councling but they feel that my acne isn’t that big of a deal. No one does. But me, cause I’m actually the one living this nightmare. I guess if its not your problem you shouldn’t care. But if it is you should begg for help. Anyways will I ever have a normal looking face again.

  31. QUESTION:
    Laura Mercier oil-free foundation or MAC studio fix foundation for acne-prone skin?
    I’ve been using the Laura Mercier oil-free foundation for about a year now, but when I went to the mall the other day, I decided to try out the MAC studio fix. When I had my make-up done for graduation, the MAC artist used that on me and it literally made my skin look beautiful and flawless… But it’s NOT oil-free (but they apparently use some natural oil.. botanical or something, according to the artist I asked). Eh, it’s cheaper than Laura Mercier.. I’m wondering if I should return it though (the MAC), because I’m really scared it’s gonna make me break out even more (and it smells really art supply-like.)… Yet it has more coverage (than Laura Mercier)… What do you guys think??

    Let’s see.. some details about my skin type. I have pretty embarrasing acne scars.. I’m 18, Asian (apparently Laura Mercier rocks at knowing yellow undertones? Dunno about MAC) and many times my bad skin depresses me… (I’m even scared that my roommate next semester will freak out when she sees me without make-up).

    I’ve been using a non-comedogenic moisturizer with SPF everytime before I apply my make-up. I use full-coverage Makeup Forever concealer, then Laura Mercier oil-free foundation, then Pola loose-powder (a Japanese brand).

    So.. stick with Laura Mercier or MAC is an a-O.K.?

    Also.. acne help would be much appreciated. Should I go see a dermatologist? I’ve tried everything.. medication/lotions with salicylic acid irritate my skin.. and I’m confused what to use because I still have some acne and acne scars/wounds… I know it’s best to not wear any make-up to let my skin breathe, but I’m just too self-conscious. Sigh. If I had perfect skin, I seriously wouldn’t wear any make-up, probably just a little eyeliner and mascara.

    Sorry for the long heart-to-heart hah.

    • ANSWER:
      I would never ever ever use any MAC foundation as my everyday foundation. Yes, it makes your skin look airbrushed, but at the cost of your pores. It clogs them and causes break outs on almost everyone (especially you probably). I would stick with the Laura Mercier. Layer your foundation and work up some coverage. I have Laura Mercier, and I find the cover is really buildable.

  32. QUESTION:
    Another Acne Question!?
    Well in my previous acne question I asked what acne kit worked the best and I didn’t really get any good answers. So I’m asking this question again. I’ve been using Proactive for about 7 months and it helped but im not 100% clear. Should I try New Proactive. I’ve also heard of the new Neutrogena skin ID thing so if any ones used that I’d like to know if that works. And the other question I have is what to do about acne scars on the face. Is there a special lotion or something? Oh yea also im a 15 year old male if that helps any.

    Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      I have been using Neutrogena Face Wash and Philosophy Hope In A Jar as moisturizer and my acne cleared up 80%. Its the best so far out of all the products i’ve tried and never dries out my skin. I don’t think you can be 100% acne free. Some people are just prone to acne and its a battle. If your really bothered spot treat your pimples with coverup.

    -For undereye circles, use a scar fading lotion. It’ll get rid of them within two days. Did for mine.

    -For super moist lips, exfoliate lips with a scrub & then wear bonne bell lipsmackers chapstick overnight.

    -To lose five pounds within one day, drink TONS of water. It’ll get rid of all excess water weight. [The average human has 10 pounds of excess waterweight, so its possible to lose more]

    -To get rid of acne and large pores; smash tylenol, add PLAIN yogurt, & apply to face for twenty minutes. [Got this idea from a magazine]. I did it and it DID improve my skin.

    -Moisturize skin after cleansing it!

    -Drink lots of water daily. It’ll make your skin grow and improve your overall appearance.

    • ANSWER:
      ~ Always wear sunscreen, no matter what time of day or what time of year. You’d be amazed at how quickly the skin ages just from exposure to the sun

      ~ When wearing makeup, blend, blend, blend! It is the key to making your makeup look natural.

      ~ Scrub your legs before shaving. I have found that it gives me a closer shave and helps me go an extra day between shaves.

      ~ Pay the or it takes to get your eyebrows professionally waxed. It’s amazing how great eyebrows can really enhance the face.

      ~ Grow old gracefully, but don’t forget to still have fun with makeup! A lot of older women stick to very neutral, drab colors as they get older, but there’s still plenty of room for other colors, just look for more sheer formulas.

      ~ Use a nail buffer to give your nails a healthy shine.

      ~ Even if you have oily skin, it is still important to moisturize, just make sure you use an appropriate moisturizer for your skin type.

      ~ Forget the neck or back massage, get a scalp massage and foot massage instead! It’s amazing how great these feel and how overlooked they get!

      ~ Have good posture (I still am working on this). It will instantly make you look thinner and appear to have more confidence.

      ~ And remember, it’s not the brand that matters, it’s whatever makes you feel amazing!

    I’m 18, Asian, combination(more dry) skin. I have pretty bad acne scars (from popping the ******* pimples.. guilty. NOT doing it anymore though. Ugh..) But yeah, it’s pretty pathetic.

    Sorry for the long heart-to-heart hah. But yeah. Please help me =(

    • ANSWER:
      First off, I would see a dermatologist. But, while you’re waiting for your appointment you could try to just use a mild cleanser with no acne treatment in it as you said salicylic acid irritates your skin. Then use a moisturizer and do this twice a day. It probably won’t help get rid of your acne but it will help your skin breathe and not be so irritated while you’re waiting for your appointment. Good Luck!!

    • ANSWER:
      The cause for pimples are many and not only adolescence as
      popularly believed. Chronic constipation is one major cause,
      the food we eat plays a very important role. You will have
      to cut down the fried food, chocolates, cheese and aerated
      drinks. Eat a lot of fresh fruits and green vegetables with
      a lot of water. Instead of washing the face with soap, use
      orange peel powder. Dry Orange peels in the shade for 4-5
      days. Powder finely and store. Wash your face with this 2-3
      times a day. It clears the face and feels very refreshing.

    8.I need a tinted lotion that gives me a nice glow but not orange or anything and I dont want it to make me too tan
    9.Best eyeshadow colors that will look good w/ gorgeous blue eyes and fair skin and brown hair

    Remember you don’t have to answer all of them cuz its alot of questions.Thx <3

    • ANSWER:
      1.I think covergirl’s lashblast is better than any mascara revlon can have.
      2.Place a line of eyeliner across your eyelash line. Then, use the tip of your finger to spread it slightly. When you do this, the eyelash line will be hidden so that you can better disguise your application.

      Next, with clean hands, place a bit of eyelash glue onto your finger. You will then pull the full eyelash through the glue so that it is slightly covered in it. Give it about ten seconds to set. For individual eyelashes, you will want to just do this with the bottom edge of the lash.

      Next, hold the individual false eyelash in your fingers and place it as close as possible in line with your eyelash line. To secure it in place, push down on the lash at the outside of your eye. You will want to place them first by the center and corner of your eye then work to the middle.You only need to apply a couple of eyelashes per eye to have a beautiful look. Allow to dry then apply your standard eye makeup treatment.
      3. to get glowing skiny drink lots of water and use a daily night/morning lotion with SPF/.
      5.best conceler out there for me is pure make-up by maybelline.
      6.ion has a great frizz control line ,you can get them in sally :)
      7.treseme is the best out there
      8. Loreal sublime bronze tanning lotion
      9.brown shades will make your blue eyes even bluer:)
      but I like green tones with blue eyes they look very pretty!

      Hope I help <3 XD

  39. QUESTION:
    What are some solutions for acne scarring? Blackheads?
    I used to struggle with some moderate to severe acne when I was younger. I had blackheads, white/yellowheads, and just plan acne… not only on my face, but on my back and chest as well. Now, I tend to break out around once a month along with the occasional zit here and there. However, my back and chest acne is completely eliminated (excluding the rare, mild, zit that pops up once every few months.)

    After trial and failure, and a little growing up, my acne has subsided greatly. I now use both the Equate (Walmart) Medicated Apricot Scrub as an exfoliant and the Clean and Clear Advanced Acne Solutions Kit (Cleanser, Lotion, and Spot Treatment). I also use the Nutrogena Wave (as of Friday) and I am pleased with the results. I never use all products at once, except in the case of a special event, etc. I may go days at a time without using one of the cleansers.

    I find that the combination of benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid helps a lot. My routine usually combats the acne fairly quickly and size, etc is reduced overnight. However, the redness/marks remain for a while and it makes it look like I still have acne. I’m really not sure what to do about this… or the blackheads that won’t go away (and trust me, I’ve tried just about everything for the blackheads).

    I have very oily skin… especially during the summer months (wearing sunscreen on my face causes me to break out even more than usual). In the winter, it’s not nearly as oily, but it still never gets dry/sensitive. I eat a relatively healthy diet (I am trying to lose weight), and I try my best to drink plenty of water or unsweetened tea a day. I know that drinking more water makes a difference in my acne, but so far it doesn’t do much for the marks left behind. (I also have hair, skin, and nail vitamins that I frequently forget to take haha)

    So, if anyone has any advice for me it would be greatly appreciated.

    • ANSWER:
      Sounds like you have your acne under control….it is just the reddish marks left behind that are bothersome. Lactic chemical peels are known to help even out the skin tone. There are several different companies that have “at home” peels….I like Skin Laboratory’s products the most. The couple that I have tried were good, and they aren’t expensive which is a huge plus for me.

      A Salicylic peel can help with oily skin and blackheads too.

      Best of luck…hope this helps!

  40. QUESTION:
    Best drugstore makeup?
    Foundation (for coverage over acne scars):
    Concealer
    Powder
    Mascara
    Eyeliner
    Eyeshadows
    Blush
    Lotion
    Deodorant

    • ANSWER:
      Foundation (for coverage over acne scars): I like mineral make-up. The Covergirl one isn’t so great, and it’s too sparkly. The only drugstore one I like is Maybelline’s mineral make-up.

      Concealer: Neutrogena has this concealer that works really well and has some salicylic acid in it to help clear up acne. They also have a foundation for acne, but I haven’t tried it.

      Powder: I assume this is like finishing powder? Maybelline has a mineral one that works well.

      Mascara: Covergirl lash blast

      Eyeliner: Revlon colorstay liquid eyeliner works well, but it takes awhile to get used to the brush. For pencils, I use Ulta brand ones. They go on sale for a dollar a piece sometimes, and I get a bunch of colors.

      Eyeshadows: Loreal HIP ones have great colors and strong pigments.

      Blush: Covergirl powder. Revlon has a cream blush that stays on well.

      Lotion: Aveeno and neutrogena products are both good, and they have many kinds for different skin types.

      Deodorant: Secret clinical protection is the only one that works for me.

  41. QUESTION:
    What’s the best face wash you’ve ever used?
    my skin is so complicated. it’s oily & greasy & dry & EXTREAMLY sensitive. like to sensitive to the point where i cannot wear foundation, powder, etc. cause it will clog my pores & force me to break out. i’ve tried a million different face washes. i wash my face 2 times a day. morning & night. i currently use cetaphil & follow up with aveeno clear complexion lotion. or this oil free neutrogena face lotion i have. i don’t have acne. (knock on wood) –watch me have an allergic reaction & get terrible acne right after i post this LOL–but i break out in painful, big zits a lot. i also get painful dry patches. also i end up with acne scars EVERYTIME a zit healed or killed or whatever. i’m a teenage girl. can you reccomend any products for me ?

    • ANSWER:
      Well me i like to use Nautrogena Naturals face and body bar. I love it so much. My face doesn’t break out form using this. I have combination/sensitive skin. And i use Eucerin Original Moisturizing Creme. They both work really for me. Well if you want to use make-up i would try cover girls clean line cause u can try the sensitive one. I have used it and it works good on me. But the only thing is that i don’t like the newer ones that they have in that line. So if you want to try the older ones you can go to www.amazon.com. I hope that this helps.

  42. QUESTION:
    I need some product recommendations!!!?
    I’m looking for some good products. Which products of the following do you consider the best?
    – Body lotion
    – Face toner (oil free)
    – Something to fade acne scars/marks
    – Face mask (oil free)
    – Leave-in conditioner

    Any other product you like, feel free to share it!

    • ANSWER:
      Boday Lotion Oil of olay and nivea
      face toner- clinique
      acne scars- not sure
      face mask- aveda
      leave in conditioner i never use but i like all aveda products.

  43. QUESTION:
    Best face wash regimen? Benzoyl?
    i used to use clean and clear, the one that came in a set, in all silver bottles and used benzoyl. and it worked good for fighting acne, but it left my face dry and even after i used the lotion it never worked!!
    so i recently started using nuetragina oil free stress control and it has salisylic acid and now i get acne everywhere on my face!!!!!
    —–also what works good on shoulders and upper back? i have acne scars for the most part
    so is there anything you use that works wonders? is there maybe a benzoyl regimen with a little less benzoyl? anything helps!!
    so what do you use that works

    • ANSWER:
      benzoyl peroxide works best for pimples. Salicylic acid works best for blackheads and whiteheads.

      if you have problems w/ pimples then go back to the benzoyl peroxide products but cut back your use. If you were using them twice a day, use them once a day. If you were using them every day once a day then use them every other day.

      something else to help you control your acne:
      if you sleep with your face on your pillowcase then change your pillowcase every other night and rotate your pillow on the nights you don’t change your case. dirty pillowcases will cause you to break out worse–especially along your jaw line.

      watch what you eat. too much junk food will affect your skin. drink plenty of water. It’s amazing how much something as simple as drinking water will affect the appearance of your skin.

  44. QUESTION:
    best face cleanser for me?
    im 15 and i was wondering what kind of face cleansers would really help me. i dont have severe acne at all, and very little too but sometimes i get big zits and little zits/pimples around the very edge of my face, almost in my hair line. im not sure why either? but i also have some acne scars which sucks:/ is there anything that could help with this and the scars? i heard proactive doesnt work at alll so i dont wanna ruin my skin by using that. clean and clear acne control kit is one that was mentioned but will it work for my skin? my skin can get really dry easily but i try not to use alot of product on it. i only use clean and clear daily oil free face wash at night to also help get my makeup off, ambi soap at night and in the morning and a little bit of lotion for your face/body to help not dry out my skin. and i wear liquid foundation too but i dont know if thats the problem? is that too much? whatever you recommend please tell me! thank you!
    also, i wanna keep it somewhat in my price range, like no more than 50$. do they have any good things at the drugstores? (walgreens, dillons, walmart, etc.)

  45. QUESTION:
    ALOE VERA can anybody answer this quick question if you know please?
    hi..i have acne scars that are not so big,but im trying to reduce their size..and iv been searching all over the internet about it and iv read that applying aloe vera to skin is the best method for acne scarring..and today i decided to put some on my face and i left it for about 10 minutes…i was wondering is it safe enough to use everyday..or like 3 times a week or something..PS its raw its not a lotion that i bought,i have a plant

    • ANSWER:
      yes fine. but dont keep getting bits off the plant because the plant will heal the leaf but it wont grow back. best to take a leaf off from the bottom of the plant and slice it with a knife and get the gel that way.or just buy gel rather than wreck your plant.

  46. QUESTION:
    Natural ways to treat acne prone skin effectively…?
    I have switched to all natural skin care regimen. I have been using the oil cleansing method with jojoba oil/almond oil and sometimes olive oil, followed by some hot steam. I then use tea tree bar soap. I finish it all with Witch Hazel/Aloe toner and Shea Butter Lotion. I do an olive oil/sugar scrub once a week.

    My skin has calmed down significantly, but I still have blemishes around the hairline by my temples and underneath my chin. The acne is just on the surface and they are red spots, they’re not deep or with whiteheads or anything…so that’s a good sign. My forehead, nose and cheeks have cleared up and the pores are clean. But I am still having issues with the other areas. I have been doing this cleaning regime for about a month. I am sometimes tempted to go back to chemical products…but I won’t, because it made my skin 100 times worse…so I know this is the best way.

    Does anyone know of some other effective tricks? And also any tricks for the dark spots/scars left by acne? Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      Detergents found in regular soap are one of the worst causes and it sounds like you are already on your way with some of the natural alternatives. One more to try which is cost effective and very good is using Oats..If you put these in a stocking and tie it up tight it will lather like soap and is good for your skin (doesn dry it out)

      Also try avoiding any excess oils to the face are from touching or rubbing or cosmetics.

      Hope this helps you :)

    What are some random beauty fixes you’ve learned over the years?
    I REALLY want to become a lingerie model. To do that, I have to get rid of a few problems on my body. My main issues are acne scars, extra flab, and stretch marks. If you could give me some advice on any of the following things, it’d mean so much:

    – Acne scars
    – Old stretch marks

    – Best products for hair, skin, etc
    – Anything else that’s useful

    Thanks :]
    Also, how can I make smile lines seem less aparent?

  49. QUESTION:
    Skin care products? Suggestions needed.?
    I’m looking for some skin care products that work really well and aren’t too expensive. The more natural the better. First of all, I have slightly oily skin, but sometimes it’s also dry (weird, huh?). I don’t have huge breakouts, but once in a while I’ll have some acne. Also I’m trying to get rid of some wrinkles- expression lines around my mouth, and also whiten my skin- I have darker skin in some areas, like around my mouth. I also have some acne scars- they’re light, but I’d like them to disappear completely, you know? Oh, and suggestions for lotions, moisturizers, etc, will also be appreciated. So, to sum it all up, I’d like product(s) that will get rid of acne, scars and blemishes, dark skin and tans, wrinkles, and make skin healthier and smoother. Also, it’s best if the price is under each. Thanks! Looking forward to the answers ;)

    • ANSWER:
      good luck for finding high quality products at under 25$ to take care of all your needs.

      id probably try dermalogicas acne wash. because its really gentle and uses salicylic acid in .05%
      so itll help exfoliate dead skin cells which will help get e of your tan and also promote collagen to reduce wrinkles.

      for a night cream id try a product by RoC. most drug stores carry the brand, and is usually around 20 or less.
      it has retinol in it, which is the only 100% proven ingredient to reduce wrinkles and fine lines. or if you want something stronger you can try retin-A, but it needs to be prescribed from a doctor.

      i dont know too many cheap moisturizers, but look for one with vitamin C. vitamin C helps inhibit pigmentation and will help brighten and firm your skin.

  50. QUESTION:
    ahhh!!! My Acne is interfering with prom!!!?
    Ok…so I am going to Prom on April 4th…And I have a lot of Acne. Now the thing is, it isn’t on my face that bad (it is a little, but I’m willing to live with it) it is on my neck, above my breasts and under them (eww), on my shoulders, and I have little bumps (guessing like blackheads) on my back, I mean like ALL OVER MY BACK! And I want to get rid of them by prom

    My dress is an open-back dress and it’s sleeves are short so you can see my shoulders…I need help…I also need to know how to get rid of scars…I used to pick on my shoulders a lot…and I have bad bad scars on them…I am currently using a lotion called ScarZone, but I don’t know if it is working properly because I don’t use it on a regular schedule…I am going to try my best to get on a regular schedule for these things, but I need suggestions on how to get rid of the scars too…
    Oh, I use the Neutrogena Wave, but I am not on a regular schedule, plus I just started using it…I am thinking of trying that Neutrogena SkinID stuff…it sounds logical…I mean they test you on YOUR acne and give you products on YOUR acne…

    Can you tell me if any of these are going to work and what I should do…
    I have heard Birth Control works…but I don’t want to get on that again…I just need to get rid of acne, not my eggs…

    Give me as much advice and information as you can please…thank you so very much

    • ANSWER:
      For your body, you can try Neutrogena Body Clear Body Wash/Scrub (either one but you may want to get the scrub for exfoliation)
      For your face:
      if your skin is sensitive, go with a salicylic acid treatment like the oil-free acne stress control wash by neutrogena. if you think your skin can handle something harsher, try a product with Benzoyl Peroxide like AcneFree oil-free purifying cleanser. Don’t use the BP wash if you just want to get rid of your acne fast, because it could end up making your skin worse. You might want to alternate between products- use a mild cleanser like Cetaphil in the morning, then the BP/SA at night to prevent excess drying.
      Make sure you keep your skin moisturized and protected from the sun so it doesnt get any extra damage.
      You can buy all of those products from frys, cvs, etc. I hope you have a good time at prom!


Best For Acne Redness

I use proactive solution, neutrogena rapid clear spot gel, and neutrogena acne mark fading peel. I still have some acne and lots of red spots. How can i get rid of it all and the red marks and black heads? What are the best habits to help avoid and treat acne scars? I need suggestions for treating scars that a lot of people have used and that have worked for them.

If you are in this same situation: have some scars you want to treat, then this article will help you out. You will find many of such questions when you search around the net for ways to get rid of scars. I will give you some few tips and tricks and habits you can avoid so as to stay clear from acne and other bad facial scars.

As far as the best habits to help avoid and treat acne scars, i recommend getting rid of the fast food and saturated fats, because when you eat those foods the liver has to break them down and if you eat too much your liver can’t break them down in time, so it stores them in the fatty tissue of your body and slowly gets detoxed out of your system in a couple places such as your skin and your kidneys.

  4. QUESTION:
    What is a good fast acting facial cleanser that gets rid of all acne and all redness?
    I NEED to know the best acne fighting system that does not cost alot and is fast acting. It needs to get rid of redness and it is good for sensitive skin. It needs to get in deeper in the skin and clean out blackheads and unwanted acne and redness. Please help!!!

    • ANSWER:
      I would reccomend you to use Spectro Jel and Oxy pads. These really seem to work for me and are both reccomended by many dermatologists. When you get up in the morning start with a rinse, put a bit of spectro gel in your hands and rub it into your skin in a circular motion to get deep into the pores. Then rinse off the Spectro Gel and dry face with a clean cloth. Then get the oxy pad and rub deep into the skin to get rid of blackheads etc. End this by using any face mosturizer to keep your face from drying up.

      *Stay away from oily makeup, use mineral makeup
      *DO NOT pick at your pimples
      *make sure your acne wash has benzoyl peroxide in it
      *use sunscreen on your face because UV rays can make acne worse
      *Be consistent with your washing
      *Wash make-up off before you go to bed
      *Drink more water

      4) Apply toner or astringent
      5) Apply moisturizer or sunscreen lotion
      6) Apply makeup

      How To Properly Use Makeup And Tools
      1) Always wash makeup off your face before going to bed to prevent breakouts!
      2) Makeup tools such as blush brush, sponges, puffs, etc., harbor oil, dirt, and bacteria that can cause breakouts! So always wash and replace your makeup tools often!
      3) Using old stale makeup can cause breakouts! Always use new fresh makeup! A talk show said makeup has the following expiration dates: Foundation 3 to 6 months, Powders/Eyeshadow/Blush 1 year, Mascara 3 months, Lipgloss/Lipstick 1 year, Eye Pencils/Lip Pencils 1 year, Facial Cleansers/Moisturizers 6 months.

      Six Things Must Be Done Everyday To Reduce Or Prevent Acne! Doing One Or A Few Of These Things Will Not Keep Your Skin Clear As Possible! Do The Following:

      1) Wash, Tone, Moisturize Your Face Everyday! Apply these three products at least 2 times a day, morning & night (possibly 3rd time, midday, if super oily/sweating). Natural and gentle products are sometimes more effective than acne medication, try this routine: Wash face with warm water & Purpose Gentle Cleansing Bar by Johnson & Johnson. Tone face with Witch Hazel, try Thayers or Dickinson’s, its gentle, minimizes pores, heals acne. Moisturize face with Lily Of The Desert Aloe Vera Gelly, its 99% organic, contains vitamin A, C, E, heals blemishes/scars!

      2) Keep dirt & bacteria at bay to prevent more breakouts! Don’t touch face with hands, Clean phone often or don’t let phone touch face, Keep hair clean or don’t let oily dirty hair touch face, Don’t lean face on objects, Clean glasses often, Wash pillowcase, bedsheets, blanket, washcloth, towel often. Wash hands before applying face products. Use fresh makeup, not old makeup. Wash or replace makeup tools often.

      3) Eat Healthy Food, Limit Junk Food! Eat healthy food everyday such as fruit, vegetables, lean meat, fiber, beans, wholegrains, foods rich in omega 3 fatty acids, zinc, vitamin A & C. Limit intake of frozen meals, dairy, milk, fat, oil, butter, greasy/fried foods, sugar, candy, salt, dessert, caffeine, coffee, pop, alcohol. Always avoid cigarettes, tobacco, illegal drugs! The book, The Clear Skin Diet by Alan C. Logan & Valori Treloar has detailed information on what to eat and not to eat to help reduce or prevent acne and it explains the hormones involved in acne and how to control them with food!

      4) Take A Multi Vitamin Mineral Supplement Everyday! Its hard to get all the vitamins and minerals your skin needs on a daily basis, so take a supplement everyday! Caution! Overdosing on vitamins and minerals whether from food or supplements is toxic and dangerous!

      5) Drinking about 64 oz of Pure Water everyday improves skin quality, flushes out toxins, delivers nutrients to skin! You can also include 100% Fruit Juice as part of your daily total.

      6) Doing 20 to 30 minutes of Aerobic Exercise everyday (or every other day) increases circulation & delivery of nutrients to skin cells, encourages good blood supply, helps remove toxins, controls acne breakouts! Stay hydrated by drinking water before, during, after workout! Immediately take a shower to remove sweat and dirt!

  8. QUESTION:
    What concealer has the best coverage for acne, acne scars, and redness, and is long-lasting?
    i need a concealer that number one: fully covers everything especially dark acne scars
    and number two: stays ON

    something good for your skin, like mineral makeup, is a plus.

    • ANSWER:
      Covergirl has this lipstick-like concealer that is amazing. I had really bad acne when I was younger and I would use it, put mineral based power over it, and I could go to the beach, swim in the ocean, and my face was still FLAWLESS – I wouldn’t even need to reapply!

      It’s the absolute best, and it’s cheap. To ensure that your makeup REALLY doesn’t come off, put a makeup primer on first.

  9. QUESTION:
    What is the best acne product for teen girls?
    i am 14, almost 15 and a female teen. I was looking into getting skin ID but not sure if there is something better out there. I dont really want to have to have “automatic refills” or be sent and charged things automatically, so unless proactiv works REALLY well, im probably not gonna get that. Anyone have any suggestions? i have dry skin and light/kind-of fair skin with some redness and not severe acne but i do get pimples, blackheads, bumps etc. thanks!

    • ANSWER:

    • ANSWER:
      “Please no guessing or products that were recommended thru the television…” I like it..most of the cosmetics are made of synthesized products which are not good for skin. Try to use natural products as far as possible. I came across this post and used it for my cousin and it showed improvement in her . You can give it a try.

  11. QUESTION:
    What is the best foundation with the most coverage for redness and acne ?
    What have you found to be the best foundation (makeup) for redness and acne ?

    • ANSWER:
      mark has a great powder foundation. It’s very much like MAC’s Studio Fix. It offers the same coverage as a liquid foundation, but feels and look like a powder. MAC’s is very pore-clogging. Mark’s is very natural and long lasting. It’s called Powder Buff and it’s only . It doesn’t feel caked on, doesn’t feel oily, and is very smooth on your skin. If you’re wanting just a tinted moisturizer, the Get-A-Tint is amazing too and is only ! It’s got good coverage and doesn’t feel heavy.

      A great concealer is called Good Riddance and is only ! It’s in a pencil form and it so terrific. I have one in my purse, make-up bag, and car.

  12. QUESTION:
    Redness/Irritation of skin (Pimples and Acne)? — BEST ANSWER 10 POINTS —?
    Hey guys, I started Proactiv about a week and a half ago and my acne/pimples got worse if not the same, which is said to be normal for about 2-3 weeks, and i understand that (the only benefit so far is my skin is very soft). But the real problem is the REDNESS, I mean its so red it looks like I have more acne then I really do which I hate, and I mean I’m pretty sure it’s fine after the step 1 bead cleanser, but then when I put on the steps 2 and 3 it gets SO RED SO FAST.

    It’s okay for it to be red when I do the steps in the evening, cause I don’t see anyone till school, but I was wondering if Proactiv would work if I only used it once a day (In the evening), and in the morning try that “Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash Redness Soothing Facial Cleanser”?

    On the other hand if this is NORMAL, and the tomato redness will go away along with everything else within the 2-3 week time period, then would it be smart to stick it out? Thanks (:

    • ANSWER:
      Hey! I used proactiv myself a couple years ago , and I had similar issues, The repairing lotion is so packed with Benzoyl Peroxide that it dries out your skin especially since its still not all the way used to it. Its good to work your way to using it more than once a day. My dematologist told me that the type of cleanser doesnt really affect your acne since it doesnt stay on your face. And i use the cleanser you mentioned and OMG IT WORKS SO WELL.

      So youre fine! I did what you did and was fine

  13. QUESTION:
    Best way reducing acne redness marks?
    I dont have as much white heads anymore just a bunch of flat red pimple marks on my skin covering almost my entire jaw line, i want to try and reduce the redness as much as possible in the next week and so far iv been drinking a TON of water, today i started taking vitamin c supplements in powder form,(emergen-c) iv also been on 3 prescribed acne medications by my dermatologist for 3 weeks now, 1 oral and 2 topical, iv cut milk and most cheeses out of my diet just recently and have been eating alot of fruits like strawberries and watermelons, and stopped eating junk food like pizza fries and hamburgers. What are the chances i can drastically reduce the redness in the next couple days, its really important to me.

  14. QUESTION:
    which makeup is best for covering acne and redness?
    i use the 24 hour superstay by maybelliene and maybelline powder concelear and the powder finish and it is good coverage but looks like shit and is cakey and looks disgusting on my pimples. i have dry skin and i use moustirizer and i take good care of my skin but i have bumps and redness and deep bumps. please help me and i want it too look natural (im looking toward MAC at the moment)

    • ANSWER:
      MAC Studio Fix is your best bet. Very good foundation, doesn’t slip into your pores and I think it’s one of the best coverage foundations available.

      To smooth your skin, use an smooth exfoliator daily before sleeping (or a tougher exfoliant if you only plan on using it twice a week). Use the exfoliator and splash cool water on your face to close your pores. Use moisturizer before sleeping as well.

      I’d actually suggest a tinted moisturizer and concealer to you. Use your concealer on problem areas than smooth across your tinted moisturizer to get a polished look. Use loose powder too if you want.

      Good luck!

  15. QUESTION:
    how to get rid of acne scars and redness? the best way?
    i seen somewhere that ice works for something? and lemon juice? do you know anything about this? and do you know anything else that might help? i’m pretty much getting rid of my acne and dry spots, but now i want my acne scars and redness to go away.

    • ANSWER:
      Some ideas:

      Place lemon or lime juice on a cotton swab and then put it on the scar and redness. Don’t use ice, it will make the skin more red ad may cause bruising and hurts. Also, you can try slicing up tomatoes and placing them all on the scars. The juices and enzymes from the tomato juice will make the scars almost invisible. Put olive oil on the scars! It may seem strange but oil DOES help your skin. If you put this on the scar, it will make it blend in a little better. I really hope this helps!!

  16. QUESTION:
    What is the best concealer for acne/redness and oily skin?(pic)?
    I live in the UK to start you off…

    Ok, well I have very very oily skin on my tzone (my fringe/bangs dont cause spots weirdly) and I have had bad acne in the past (gone through every treatment under the sun) it has calmed down but I do get the occasional spot and my skin is very oily and I have lots of red scarring.

    I find that after an hour or two my concealer has melted away and my skin is all red and it makes me so self conscious :(

    I want to try a good concealer that is very thich and creamy (it cant be drying or chalky) covers well and stays put (I often find that concealers dont actually cover the skin around spots well for some reason) I need one that does this and hides away redness.

    I am willing to fork out for brands like MAC and Bobbi Brown etc. It has to be REALLY pale too! And I mean REALLY pale!!

    zoo1

    thats how pale I am (I know my skin looks quite good here but thats photos for you, later on it was all red and shiny and all my makeup had gone :( )

    If there is any dermatological makeup out there that is more hardcore than counter stuff I’d like to know thanks!!

    I dont do mineral powder makeup btw, it doesnt agree with me!

    sorry its so long, thanks!
    asking again for different answers, best to get lots of ideas!

    • ANSWER:
      physicians formula is the best!
      they have the green conceler which hides the redness and then after that you put on the correcting conceler and wahalaa!!
      the green conceler doesnt actually show up green on your face by thhe way.
      they have for very pale skin tones too.
      their make up is designed to help pimples go way too.

  17. QUESTION:
    What is the best product to reduce redness from acne and/or shaving irritation?
    I’m looking for something to sooth sensitive red skin after shaving. And also something to reduce the redness of healing acne. They could be the same product or different. I just have no idea what to use.

    • ANSWER:
      Lab series for men makes great shave products for men with sensitive or acne prone skin. It is very costly for mens skin care product so if you cant afford it Nivea makes a soothing aftershave balm that works well for the neck area. I wouldnt recommend putting it on the rest of your face as well as the lab series balms. I would instead find use clearasil’s face lotion with benzoyle peroxide (the one with a very low percentage this will sooth the skin and prevent breakouts) Look on lab series for men’s website and look at the proper way to shave your face. You may think you have it right but if you follow their guide you might have better luck with the redness and bumps. Best of luck.

    I don’t want to spend a lot of money… I want something I can buy at the drugstore, and I need a good cleanser, toner, and scrub… but the cleanser is the most important. I’d rather not use benzoyl peroxide because it doesn’t really do anything for me.

    • ANSWER:
      I suggest that you take a skin ‘test’ at Neutrogena’s website

      go to the section “facial care and acne”

      Just try to keep your answers as close to your skin as possible
      then write down what products they recommend for you
      and go out to walmart or somewhere and try it out!!!

      I am not sure if Neutrogena products might work on you, but they work fine for me now that I know the right products to get. So it doesn’t hurt to try it out, right? the test is great to see what products from them suit your skin. Hope this helps(:

  21. QUESTION:
    What is the best acne treatment for fair skin?
    I have very pale and sensitive skin. Also, i have redness that i would Love to get rid of! But i don’t want to spend a fortune! Is there an OTC acne treatment that really works without breaking the bank??

    • ANSWER:
      Look for face washes which contain the active ingredient benzoyl peroxide. This is the key ingredient in some of the best face washes. use a 5-10% benzoyl peroxide of mild to moderate acne and 10% for severe.

      Try smashing one tablet of aspirin in a small bowl, then adding lemon juice to the mixture. Aspirin is acetesalicylic acid, chemically related to salicylic acid. Apply to the affected areas overnight. It boosts the healing process while reducing redness.

      Try putting toothpaste (paste, NOT gel) on your face, cover it with a bandage, and keep it on all night. When you wash it off in the morning your acne will look better. The astringent and surfactant nature of the toothpaste will help diminish the appearance of pimples. But the toothpaste has been known to burn sensitive skin of the face, so be careful. If your face does burn, stop acne treatments and work on healing your burn.

      Try using Bentonite Clay, a natural mineral powder which has been known to absorb impurities and help neutralise the skin’s oiliness, and can be found online. Mix 2 tablespoons with a dash of cold water and smooth over the face as a thick paste. Once dried gently wipe off with a flannel or sponge.

      Bye…

    • ANSWER:
      If you are experiencing pimple redness and would like to learn how to reduce the redness of pimples fast, then read this collection of favorite home remedies and tips:

      1. Avoid the urge to pick, pop or squeeze a pimple. This could cause the spread of bacteria and you could end up with a permanent scar.

      2. To reduce the redness of a pimple, apply ice to the area every half hour. You should hold the ice on the affected area for about 2 minutes. The ice will reduce the swelling and can help with any pain you might be experiencing. Now use a makeup concealer with a tint of green to remove redness and hide the pimple.

      3. Apply a mixture of crushed aspirin and water to the affected area.

      4. Apply a drop or two of Visine eye drops to the pimple.

      5. Take some ibuprofen and swab the pimple with alcohol. It takes a couple of hours for the ibuprofen to kick it, but it relieves the pain and shrinks the swelling.

      6. If you’re in need of a quick fix, applying a bit of toothpaste to the affected area right before bed can help soothe pain and reduce redness.

      7. Pressing and holding a wet tea bag or a cotton ball with a dab of lemon juice against the blemish for five minutes can reduce swelling and redness.

      Remember, the best way to control pimples is through prevention. It is important to cleanse your skin 2 – 3 times per day to remove dirt, oil, makeup and dead skin cells. A moisturizer should also be used, if you are using any acne products like benzoyle peroxide to maintain the skin’s moisture.

      You could try one of the many over the counter cleanser/degreasers, most are based on peroxide, Panoxyl is a typical example. If this fails the next step is to see your GP for topical or oral antibiotics. Avoid tetracycline and oxytetracyline as they are awkward to take and not very effective, minocycline or lymecycline are better.

    • ANSWER:
      2 (15 )( 15…. !
      Acne marks usually develop when you pop a pimple or squeeze it out. This action peels off the pimple and the skin forcefully and leaves a permanent mark at the affected area. The deeper the skin peels off, the darker is the mark. Sometimes, it may leave a scar, which is all the more difficult to get rid off. However, you may try out these remedies at home that will help you to get rid off acne marks and cure your face.

      * Take the fresh juice of lemon and dip some cotton wool in it. Pat your face with the cotton and let it dry. Some people may find the lemon juice irritating. In that case, you can dilute it in some water or rose-water. Let it dry for 15-20 minutes and wash your face with water after that. Do this at least four times a week and you will find considerable change.
      * Make a paste with some sandalwood powder and rose-water. Add 2-4 drops of lime juice to it. Apply this paste on your face and neck and let it dry completely. After that, rinse your face with cool water and wipe off the paste with cotton wool. Do this on a regular basis (twice a week) to get good results.
      * Apply cucumber juice on your face with cotton wool. In summers, you can do this almost daily as it helps cool off the skin and tighten the pores. Cucumber juice is very helpful is making your skin glow and make it feel fresh.
      * A popular homemade remedy for removing acne marks is to make a paste of apple and honey. Make the apple paste first and then add 4-6 drops of honey. Apply this mask on your face. Wash off after 15 minutes. This will tighten pores and make your complexion light.

    BEST WAY TO COVER ACNE & REDNESS?
    Lately, I’ve been breaking out on my chin & my forehead. I’ve been using the same facewash & makeup that I’ve been using for months. Maybe it’s hormones or something. Anyway, I need help covering it up. I’m 21 & have pimples… Lately when I meet people, they think I’m a teenager.

    I currently have:

    bare minerals foundation (does NOT cover blemishes as well as they say)

    Almay TLC foundation

    I also have bareminerals Bare Radiance, bronzer, and Soft Focus Glee. The thing is, my cheeks are naturally red, but it’s uneven and blotchy. Ideas? :(
    I can’t use clinique. I used it a few years ago & broke out worse than a high school football player who never washes his face…

    • ANSWER:
      The worst thing you can do is try to cover your acne. Caking on heavy make up will only make it worse. You need to deal with the problem at its source. Then your skin will be healthy and clear and you won’t need to cover anything. A light foundation will even out the red blotches. Try proactive and if that doesn’t help see you Dr for something prescription strength. The Christmas holidays are the perfect time to do this if you are home you can go make up free as much as possible to keep your skin from clogging. Also drink lots of water and never ever go to bed without washing your face first. Going to bed with any makeup on is the worst thing you can do.

    proactive? opinions plz=]

    • ANSWER:
      go to any supermarket, buy any ORGANIC apple cider vinegar.
      Use it as a toner, UNDILUTED, after you wash your face.
      It might sting for a while but don’t worry about it.
      Then use 5% Benzoyl Peroxide on all problem areas, this should oxygenate your skin, and the acne bacterias cannot live in oxygenated areas. You will experience some peeling but this is ok, those dead skins has to be removed anyways to prevent your skin from clogging.
      If you can drink purely juiced carrot juice daily, just one glass, not the one you buy from the grocery store though. HOpe this helps.

    I have acne.. not severe like OMG!! but still very noticeable. My skin is dry but oily. I have tried everything! I was always switching my makeup to see which worked the best.
    I have scars and redness so of course something that is good coverage but still wont break me out
    The makeup that has worked the best for me has been Lorac, very pricy though! and will only last you short time
    Any one tried anything super fantastic? lol

    • ANSWER:
      Hi Tina. You may have heard that sometimes wearing makeup can lead to worse acne breakouts. This can be true if you use an oil based makeup. There are however, makeups on the market that are made for people with acne. These types of makeup will contain benzoyl peroxide. Also remember to remove your makeup at the end of the day because it can clog your pores.

  38. QUESTION:
    What is the best concealer to cover acne and redness on oily skin(pic)?
    I live in the UK to start you off…

    Ok, well I have very very oily skin on my tzone and I have had bad acne in the past (gone through every treatment under the sun) it has calmed down but I do get the occasional spot and my skin is very oily and I have lots of red scarring.

    I find that after an hour or two my concealer has melted away and my skin is all red and it makes me so self conscious :(

    I want to try a good concealer that is very thich and creamy (it cant be drying or chalky) covers well and stays put (I often find that concealers dont actually cover the skin around spots well for some reason) I need one that does this and hides away redness.

    I am willing to try brands like MAC and Bobbi Brown etc. It has to be REALLY pale too! And I mean REALLY pale!! http://www.flickr.com/photos/36895927@N04/3439102871/ thats how pale I am (I know my skin looks quite good here but thats photos for you, later on it was all red and shiny and all my makeup had gone :( )

    If there is any dermatological makeup out there that is more hardcore than counter stuff I’d like to know thanks!!

    I dont do mineral powder makeup btw, it doesnt agree with me!

    sorry its so long, thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      i have really really pale skin too. i aslo get zits in my t-zone too. when i looked at your pic, i noticed that you had side bangs. i have side bangs too, and when i clip them back when im at home, i notice that the zits start to go away and my face becomes less oilier. try clipping your bangs back like this

      http://imagesme.net/beautyhairstyles/ashley-tisdale-volume-hairstyle-at-2008-creative-arts-emmy-awards2.jpg

      trust me, this works. the oil from your bangs makes your skin even oilier and causes breakouts.
      use st. ives apricot scrub, i wear by it! lol you can buy it at any drug store. its grainy and oil free. i use it when i take a shower, and when i get out, my skin is oil free and has that ‘tight’ feeling.
      for concealer, ( i know its expensive, but it works really well) NARS cover up. it comes in a small glass square thing, and it works wonders. you put it on your face and smooth it out, and its covers the redness and zits..
      also, try changing your pillow case more often cause theres a lot of oil and dirt on it that causes breakouts. try using a silk cover.

  40. QUESTION:
    Best acne (prevention) cleanser for my face?
    I have dry to normal skin, and it is usually soft but sometimes rough.
    I am currently using Deep Clean Neutrogena, Chanel’s face cleanser (forgot what it was called), and Clean & Clear’s wake up Burst Cleanser.
    I use the Deep Clean cleanser the most but I am switching on and off with the other products.

    I use NU Skin’s toner and gel moistruizer and obviously I am a FEMALE.
    Now yes, I am a teenager and I have pretty sensitive skin.
    I have a few noticable blackheads here and there, on my nose and some not very visible but annoying white heads aside from my nose area.
    My forehead is usually always flawless unless I get an occasional small pimple on it which is harmless, and which just happened recently.

    Now everytime I look at my skin I am horrified my how it is not very clean looking and appealing.
    I just wish so much that I had flawless skin!
    I know that I am going through puberty but isn’t there a fast easy chep way to get rid of this?

    And by the way, no I do not have the ‘typical’ teenager acne.
    Just some rough bumps and redness around my nose area.
    But atleast I have a very pretty face! Haha, so much for modesty.
    But seriously, please help me find the best cleanser for my face!

    I also have used the Clean and Clear Blackhead Eraser, it was horrible!
    It hurt my skin by irritating it.
    I am NOT obsessed with my face but I am definitely aware of it.
    :-)
    I just want to get rid of those stubborn bumps…

    Something for a reasonable price also!
    Please take the time to read this all,
    it won’t take long!
    Thank you!

  41. QUESTION:
    best acne treatment for adult female, help?
    Hi im a 20 y/o girl and I have sufferd with acne from when i was in middle school. I have tryed meny diffrent thinsg from proactive, to natures cure, to diffrent ance face scrubs and treaments pretty much everything and nothing seems to work. I have scars and redness too. I have very sentisive skin so it makes it hard, I hate it I hate my face and wondering what works the best, is there anything I should try? I have no inscurance so I cant afford a dermatolgest but I really would like to clear it up, Im embarsed to go to work or school or even out, so does anyone know what would work? thnx in advance

    • ANSWER:
      I am 50 years old and suffered with acne into my thirties, until i finally took Accutane. It does require a prescription, and the medicine is not cheap, but believe me, i tried EVERYTHING for years. I changed my pillowcase at least nightly, completely changed my diet for 5 years (to no avail), used everything available, and nothing worked like the accutane. within a week, my skin felt normal and the acne was already disappearing. within two weeks, my makeup looked the same at 6PM as it did when i applied it that morning. It was a six month treatment, but since then my skin has been relatively perfect, and the scarring has disappeared! IT IS ABSOLUTELY IMPERATIVE THAT YOU NOT GET PREGNANT WHILE TAKING THIS, SO BLOOD TESTS ARE REQUIRED, ETC. I know you said you can’t afford a dermatologist, etc., but there are lots of community care clinics that will see you for free and give you your medicine for free, and acne is a serious and important illness. start asking for help, and keep asking until you get it. don’t give up! on the other hand, and just for the record, my daughter is 21 and has the same problem. she is trying to get pregnant so won’t take accutane. although it’s not nearly as effective as the accutane was for me, she swears by Proactiv, and it has definitely improved her condition to a large degree. i’m sorry you’re having to experience this…. it’s emotionally painful as well. remember you’re not alone, and as long as you’re honestly doing all you can to treat the condition, try to let it go and focus on something else as often as you can. Good luck.

  42. QUESTION:
    Best acne stuff for sensitive skin?
    Yea, And also is acne free good?

    And how can i get rid of my redness on my face

    • ANSWER:
      Acnefree worked on my skin for about three months and then my face went back to the way it used to be. I use Clearasil ultra, it is safe for sensitive skin. I also take a pill called Chelated Zinc. It clears your skin of zits. I take it every night, and have been for about two years now. For my senior portraits they didn’t touch up my face. I never have zits anymore.

    • ANSWER:

  44. QUESTION:
    Whats the best skin product that can really clear off acne, pimples, oily skin, peeling skin, and redness?
    Well i have horrible skin, and it seems like everything i use never works. I heard proactive does not work on some people, and i hate putting on makeup all the time. I used cetaphil also and it always brings me redness. What is the best product, face wash or remedy that can really clear them off for good?

    • ANSWER:
      As you’ve experienced YOU’VE TRIED EVERYTHING AND THEY NEVER WORKS.

      Sometimes just the oil on your face from make up and lotions, even from your hair can travel to your face causing acne to come out. Others, from stress, hormones & diet or foods. When you’re using moisturizer, use very little and get one for your face.

      ProActiv contains a known carcinogen, at a percentage known to promote skin cancer. Acne medication could worsen what ever allergies you have, so instead of trying out one product after another, you’re actually spreading it around. The beauty industry is a billion dollar business, they know acne is everyone’s problem, but instead of saying soap is drying for you, they have to invent an acne product that can worsen the skin as MANY TEENAGERS have experienced during hormonal change, but as you get older those are completely a waste of time & money!

      The FDA has called for more safety studies on benzoyl peroxide because of concern about what happens when skin treated with it is exposed to the sun. Until research can establish or disprove a possible skin cancer link to the use of benzoyl peroxide products, the agency plans to require an extra warning and directions on the labeling: “When using this product, avoid unnecessary sun exposure and use sunscreen.” and “If going outside, use a sunscreen. Allow [product name] to dry, then follow directions in the sunscreen labeling. If irritation or sensitivity develops, discontinue use of both products and consult a doctor.” “Benzoyl peroxide has been shown to be a tumor promoter and progression agent in a number of animal studies. The clinical significance of this is unknown.” “Benzoyl peroxide in acetone at doses of 5 and 10 mg administered twice per week induced skin tumors in transgenic Tg.AC mice in a study using 20 weeks of topical treatment.”

      “Inorganic peroxide (benzoyl peroxide) (H(2)O(2))-mediated malignant transformation was also enhanced effectively by iron.” “Therefore, in addition to its known ability to promote papilloma and carcinoma formation in the back skin of mice, benzoyl peroxide is also able to promote the formation of melanotic tumors in the dermis of hamsters.” “CONCLUSION: This study indicated that benzoyl peroxide could increase carcinogenesis of golden hamster tongue which induced by DMBA. Consideration of promoting agent should be taken in carcinogenesis as well as carcinogen.”
      Smoking has been shown to make acne worse since it diminishes the delivery of oxygen to the skin and robs it of nutrients, thereby inhibiting cars from healing. Not enough reason to quit? Smoke depletes moisture, making skin lose its luster and look wrinkly.

      The less products you use, the better for your skin. Some skin and hair care products can cause acne. To help prevent and control acne flare-ups, take good care of your skin. For example, use a mild soap or cleanser to gently wash your face twice a day. Choose “non-comedogenic” make-up and hair care products. This means that they don’t close up the pores. I use a bath wash like Suave, Irish Spring, Dove (for ex.) Bath & Body wash when I take a shower, with a washcloth. Treat your face like the rest of your body, take a shower everyday or wash your face everyday.

      The secret is keeping your face clean and oil-free. I also don’t use liquid on my face for anything, and very little moisturizer, not even a dime size. Since my face is not dry. Good skin also comes from your good genes. Increase your fresh fruits & vegetables 3-5 servings per day. And programmed your mind to do this day after day, for the rest of your life.

  45. QUESTION:
    What Is The Best Foundation To Use For A Person Who Has Acne, Dry Skin, And Redness?
    I’m trying to find the perfect foundation to use for my skin type which is dry, some acne on my forehead and chin, and redness on my cheeks. What do you think is the best one? And how much do you think it would be at CVS or Rite Aid? Thanks so much!

    • ANSWER:
      Well, your best bet is to know that foundation alone wont help cover and heal your blemishes and dry skin. First, I would find a nice moisturizer that wont leave you greasy or clog your pores. (It’s too hard to say which one is best for you personally, but clean & clear moisturizers are inexpensive and nice to use on dry skin.) I know that these are more expensive, but if you look at Clinique’s line of products, they have many products that treat redness and dry skin.. They work like magic! :)

      Any concealer you like (as long as it is in you color, of course) will help cover acne.

      And foundation wise… there are ones out there that actually treat acne. You can find it at Wal-Mart for sure. I believe it is by Neutrogena.

      I hope I helped. :D

  46. QUESTION:

    • ANSWER:

      are good for sensitive skin and acne prone skin.

      for Liquid use Neutrogena Skinclearing foundation, or ALmay clear complexion
      foundation, concealer , pressed powder this are really good and cheap.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    What is the best method and cost of acne scar removal?
    Four months ago I had a large acne cyst on my nose that had to be removed by a dermatologist, who said that there should be no resulting scar. Unfortunately, I was still left with a large, raised reddish-purple scar that has not shown signs of fading since. What would be the best method of removal (medication or surgery) and what would be the cost for a single scar? Thanks for your help.

    • ANSWER:
      Really depends on how dark the scars is. Laser treatments are great for that situation. I had the v beam treatment for some red spots that I had. It took one treatment and mine was gone. 5.00 and it was gone. Good Luck

  2. QUESTION:
    Best drugstore acne scar removal cream?
    I suffer from mild acne which is not much of a problem. Although I have mild acne, it leaves a ton of scars that takes ages to fade away. I wanted to know if there are any creams from drugstores that successfully help diminish scars and help improve the skin. I’m not asking for a miracle-worker, but something that I will slowly see a gradual improvement on. Any suggestions are welcome and those from your own experience are highly recommended. Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      Neutogena products are the best, I would buy medicated soap, stuff that’s pure……..

    • ANSWER:

  4. QUESTION:
    Scar removal treatment that gets rid of acne scars the best?
    I have a scar removal gel that works GREAT for my stretch marks and other scars, but I’ve yet to see this dramatic or any improvement in my acne scars.

    They’re mostly on my forehead and some on my chin. They’re raised, not indented, if that means anything.

    I don’t mind spending a little more money or waiting a month or to for a quality product that WORKS.
    Would rather not have any procedures or surgeries, but I’ll keep an open mind.

    Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      Steph !
      # pply sandalwood paste with rosewater and leave it overnight over the scars. You can even apply a mixture of sandalwood paste and black gram paste.
      # For dark acne scars use lemon juice. Before applying, clean the scars with warm water and dab 1 tsp of lemon juice into a cotton ball and apply it on the scars and leave it for 10-15 minutes. Make sure to apply sunscreen prior to going out in the sun as lemon juice makes your skin photosensitive.
      # Cucumber with lemon juice or honey with lemon juice also helps. Honey also helps for chicken pox scars. However people with oily skin should avoid the use of honey.

  6. QUESTION:
    What’s the best product for acne scar removal?
    I have this pretty noticable acne scar right in the middle of my forehead from this horrible pimple i had in June. I picked and picked at it. I regret it now. It’s small, but noticeable. I usually wear makeup and you can’t see it then but I’d rather just have it go away. The fact that it’s smackdab right in the middle doesn’t help. And I’m sure I will get more acne scars, considering I pop and pick at every pimple I see. Don’t tell me not to, It’s a habit that I can’t get rid of and I will just keep doing it lol. I was looking at some customer reviews on Amazon for some products but decided to try this instead.
    I didn’t mean literally “removal” lol i meant like fade you know like mederma or something. And yeah now I know to leave it alone when it scabs over. Unfortunately then, I didn’t.

    collagen injection,
    laser resurfacing,
    punch grafts,
    autologous fat transfer,

    which is the best one ?

      Well…it is usually a combination of two or three of the above to get the best results…i.e. Dermabarsion and chemical peels can give good results in only very superficial acne scars. Collagen injections, fat transfer, Co2 Laser resurfacing, filler injections and aptose threads can give better and varying degree of results depending upon the skill of the practitioner..

    What is the cost of removing one acne scar?
    Four months ago I had a large acne cyst on my nose that had to be removed by a dermatologist, who said that there should be no resulting scar. Unfortunately, I was still left with a large, raised reddish-purple scar that has not shown signs of fading since. What would be the best surgical method of removal and how much would it cost? Once again, it is only one scar. Thanks for your help!

    Acne Cure and Pimple Scar Removal?
    I am a 16 year old male and have various acne questions. First, I have tried many acne products, done as instructed and all it has done is dry my face out to the extreme. Now I am trying this weird mix of many things right now of: Clean and Clear black head remover (face wash and tool) some cleanser and a face moisurizer pimple preventing thing. My face is still drying out… just not as fast but i have no change in acne.. What is the best thing for me to do? I eat very healthy drink lots of water and have no pop what so ever.

    Also, to remove pimple scars I have been told to use like tomato slices and to rub it on the scars.. Do I leave the juice on there or rinse it off?

    Another thing, I have slight eczema or however you spell it ont he left side of my face, i dont have any problems with it like it hurting or itching ever. It is kind of faded but i would love to not see it at all.. any suggestions?

    Please help!!!

    • ANSWER:
      You are using too much stuff on your face and you need to see a doctor to get the correct treatment for it. Beware of using any products for acne unless they have been prescribed or recommended by your doctor. Often antibiotics are needed to treat acne, so you should see a doctor about it. You may need a combination of oral and topical antibiotics, benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid and/or retinoids.

      People make all kinds of suggestions about the best thing to do to cure acne. Some cures I’ve heard include putting oatmeal, honey, lemon juice, tea tree oil, cucumber, vinegar, milk of magnesia or toothpaste on your face. Practically every cosmetics company and company that makes personal care products makes something that is a “sure cure” for acne. If we think about this, and use some common sense, we have to come to the conclusion that there is no quick or easy cure for acne, because if there was it would be well known and doctors would be telling everyone about it.

      Numerous companies make a lot of money persuading people to buy products that at worst will make the acne worse, and at best may help some people a little. Often fewer products are better. People often make their acne much worse by using too many products. There really is no quick fix for acne. Don’t spend a lot of money on products just because their ads say that they will cure acne. Your doctor is the best person to ask for help, and he or she may recommend some prescription medication or non-prescription treatment that may be suitable for you..

      There are some very simple and basic things you can do that cost nothing. Keep your face or any other area affected by acne very clean. Any mild antibacterial soap will help with that. Rinse the area well to remove all soap residue. Drink plenty of water – it really does help to clear up acne. Eat a nutritious diet and get enough sleep. A healthy life style will make a difference. Try to reduce the stress in your life – stress contributes to acne, so also probably the more you worry about the acne and focus on it, the worse it will be.

      Probably the most useful and effective things you can do are to apply hot compresses to pustules and cysts and never to pick or squeeze pimples. Playing with or popping pimples, no matter how careful and clean you are, nearly always makes bumps stay redder and bumpier longer.

      Here are a few informative links with additional ideas about preventing and treating acne.

  19. QUESTION:
    I have alot of acne scars. And i wanna get rid of them fast! Help!!?
    Okay i got acne last year begginning of 6th grade and im in 7th grade now and all of them are gone except for one of two. And the acne left scars behind. Whats the best over the counter acne scar removal i can buy at target or walgreens or watever and actually works?

    • ANSWER:
      You probably won’t want to hear this, but scars take time to heal. If you’ve only had them for a few months, I wouldn’t break out the full scar treatment yet because your skin may still heal itself. For now, try to use exfoliating cleansers to stimulate skin cell turnover. New skin cells will mean that your old scars will fade. In particular, I reccomend St. Ives acne scrub. If the scars still haven’t faded after another month or so, try Mederma, a gel used for scars. I used it on one of my (admittedly non acne related) facial scars when I was around your age, and it worked quite well.

  20. QUESTION:
    (10 pts for best answer) How do I get rid of the horrible acne/scars on my cheeks?
    A few months ago I had a hairstyle in which I wore my bangs on my cheeks. BAD, BAD IDEA, it caused both of my cheeks to break out in a nest of pimples. So I made sure I never had hair hanging in my face, I changed my pillowcases again, and I started using all these different types of acne treatments but nothing is working! My cheeks are still covered in these disgusting acne marks, the skin is bumpy and still has pimples. I feel like crying.

    Whenever people talk to me, I can feel their eyes wander around my cheeks. I’m really embarrassed, and I want to know if there is anything I can do to get rid of it! I’ve been researching laser acne scar removal, lightening creams, microdermabrasion, chemical peels, etc, but I’m just not sure about which one to try!

    I’m kind of on a budget, and I’m looking for something that doesn’t have a lot of downtime or nasty side effects since I need to be able to go to work. =(

    Basically I am looking for suggestions on what treatment to try, and maybe some remedies or creams that can help as well. Please.

    • ANSWER:
      Honestly, I have found three things work best for me – and they’re very cost effective!

      First, I take off all make up with Extra Virgin Olive Oil. It’s cheap, probably in your kitchen cupboard.

      Another awesome product is St. Ives Apricot Scrub, you can probably pick it up at any drug store or Wal-Mart – they even have scrubs for acne prone skin as well. Costs no more than .99.

      Then, Aloe Vera gel! It’s also probably in your house .. Just put it on as a moisturizer. It helps clear up acne scars and helps control break outs.

      I hope this helps! =) Keep smiling!

  21. QUESTION:
    What Would Be the Best Choice(s) in Treating Acne, Acne Scars, Clogged Pores, & Dark Spots?
    I am 17 yrs old and I am curious as to what would be in my best interest for treating my acne related issues. My acne is very light and pretty much under control now. I seem to break-out more so during hormonal cycles in which my skin gets very oily (I get white heads and a couple cysts). Although, even after my break-outs have surpassed, white heads under my nose, cheeks and chin persists. Fortunately, they are not as bad as they once were. Some of it has left very superficial atrophic scars. I know most doctors note that scars cannot be 100% completely removed, but I have also researched that depending on the severity of the scarring you can get a complete or almost complete improvement/removal. My scars are not severe in size, but there are more than just a few (I am also afraid of the gradual effect if left untreated). My scars are fairly new in arrival which I also know serves as a great factor in completely improving the scars’ appearance. I have been researching a many of treatment options from: every kind of chemical peels, laser resurfacing, surgical procedures (subsicion and punch excision i.e.), fillers, topicals, abrasions (dermabrasion, microderm, etc), and other ablative and non-ablative procedures. {My personal health/ health habits are right on point, if I might add.} I do know that scars are formed from the loss off tissue and also collagen, so I have concluded that the best treatment(s) will address the restoration/repair of the skin/skin surface and rebuild collagen growth. I also know that I have to go to the right dermatologist, plastic surgeon, or facial plastic surgeon with much practice in the area of scar removal. The only thing is I am CONFUSED! On one site “this treatment works” than on another “it doesn’t”, or that “you can improve them” and “you can’t”. I am completely confident that my scars are 95%~100% prone to improvement if given the proper guidance to the PROPER treatment. My skin is not extremely sensitive (though, it can be sensitive to some extent), it also very tough, and I am of a lighter skin-tone. Money is not much of issue, nor, is [down] time. Help me please! If I can just get the answers that will help I can move on to the next steps of this which will be consultation (finding the right doctor) etc etc….. HELP! PLEASE AND THANK YOU!

    **Excuse the excessive run-ons and grammatical errors. I was rushing a bit. Also, I would appreciate it if the answer was from someone very knowledgeable in this criteria or has experienced it personally. I honestly do not want temporary fulfillment (fillers) so something with long term effects**

    • ANSWER:
      A damn good male dermatologist who has a skin spa, be prepared to take meds, apply topicals, have skin peels, etc. You will be under the care of the derm, but you will also be cared for by his people, who will help you a lot. Good luck!

  22. QUESTION:
    Can lasers really get rid of acne scars or something else???
    I am planning on getting laser acne scar removal for my 15 year old daughter any advices?
    it will probably be done in beverly hills or anywere in california were the best dermatoligist is at any advices?

    Or Is dermabrassion good to get rid of acne scars??

    and wat would be the prices for 3 minor acne scars???

    • ANSWER:
      Dermabrasion is a waste of money. I can buy a bottle of exfoliating cream that does a better job than dermabrasion. I have had the smoothbeam laser done on my scars also, and it seems to work. But I probably have worse scars than your daughter. If she has 3 minor acne scars, they should just be able to give her a cream that would work well.

  25. QUESTION:
    seeking the best medicine for scar remove naturally!?
    i have faced a surgery scar(not acne)since six months, i have used a scar removal called MEDERMA since two months and i stop using it before two months.now it is balance with another skin level but it looks still different color(pink).is there any solution for peace of my soul?seeking for the best suggestion!

    • ANSWER:
      Over time, the scar will fade away into the lower dermis and become a less noticeable color, roughly a shade lighter than your natural skin tone. It will still be visible, but only if you’re really looking for it.

      The reason that scars occur is because the ruptured skin on the top layer became wrinkled or didn’t heal completely by the time the new skin started to grow over it. Basically, it’s just a layer of wrinkled skin wedged between several layers of newer, smoother skin.

      You can get surgery (though it’s pretty expensive, thereby rendering it pointless) that will meticulously REMOVE that layer of wrinkled skin, so that a scar is no longer visible. Aside from this procedure, however, there are no known treatments to make scars go away completely. No oils, cream, nothin’. It’s easiest to just learn to love these little blemishes, and not give them another thought.

    How to get rid of the acne/pimple scars? :D?
    Konnichiwa! Ahn-nyeong! :D :D
    School’s reopening in less than a week and my acne/pimples scars haven’t gone yet D:
    Seriously, its almost taking up my whole forehead , EEW D:
    oh no, I’m not going to let it conquer my whole head TT^TT
    Anyone here knows how to get rid of them?
    It can be homemade recipes to get rid of them or some suggestions of acne scar removal products for a 13-year-old teenage girl. Hmm, best if it can make the acne scars vanish quickly before school reopens but nevermind if it takes a much longer duration, so long as it disappears.
    er, products that I can find easily in Singapore, thankyouverymuch in advance.

    happy new year (: ^^v

    • ANSWER:
      nee-chan, i know how it feels. (^o^)

      do this 2-3 times everyday: the key is in the 3 step system.

      1. wash. the key is the 2% SALICYLIC ACID. neugtrogena is pretty good. -8@drugstores

      2. tone. drip some toner onto a cotton ball. swab face w. it. after u wash+dry ur face. neutrogena’s “clear pore” toner has 2% salicylic acid. -7 @ drugstores.

      **if you feel a bump (pimple), then immediately apply CLEARASIL ULTRA’s acne cream. the key is the 10% benzoyl peroxide.

      3. moisturize. many ppl forget to do this step, but it will make your face dry up, and feel taut. clinique is good. @ sephora/ulta.

      __hon, i know how hard it is. whether it’s being fat, or acne. cause i was once over-weight, has had acne for 5 years, and still need braces. i’m wearing them like battle scars on here hon.

      look @ those girls on the beach in bikinis when they shouldn’t be–she doesn’t care about what you have to say. what matters to her is what SHE thinks. cause the only person that matters to her is herself. BE that girl!!

      all teens go though acne. should we all just hide in our closets until we pass puberty? or should we stand in front of the mirror, wishing, wishing, staring, plucking, hoping for a miracle to save you. the list is endless–it goes into infinity and beyond!!

      hon, you’re never alone. we all go through the same thing. and you’re not the girl w/ acne, or the guy w/ the acne-scarred face.

      what gets you thorugh life is your attitude! it’s not your face, your bust, or your bod. it’s your spunk, your refusal to conform. cause right now you’re swimming, and drowning in an ocean of self-pity, and self-hate. looks like you enjoy it cause you’re not getting out anytime. not until you’re finally ready to–until you’re satisfied with who you are.

      that zit didn’t ruin ur date. the extra pound didn’t kill your yearbook picture. and your frizzy hair didn’t ruin your prom. what killed it was your ATTITUDE. about life. about yourself. no one and nothing stopped you from going out–YOU did

      now i’m crippling shy. but after entering high school, being around so many other out-going ppl, i’m learning to grow out of it. i still have a long way to go–i’m still very much a wall flower.

  27. QUESTION:
    Scar removal types? Please help?
    I have little acne scar and normal scar from an accident. What is the best way for me to remove these scars? What kind of types of laser surgery are there that is cheap and that removes them completely thanks

    • ANSWER:
      Lasers don’t really help. You need to go to your DR and get a retinoid cream. Such as Retin A. Retinoids gradually remove the top layers of skin faster than normal. It takes a while but will work for acne scars.
      Be warned it may irritate so only use a very small amount. A pea sized drop for your whole face. You may peel a little at first but that is ok, that means the cream is working.

    expensive or inexpensive would work
    natural or unnatural i don’t really care as long as its effective
    i also have pretty strong skin (at least i think so)

  30. QUESTION:
    Laser Acne Removal, good idea or bad?
    My sister has really bad acne scars, and we found out about this laser removal about a week ago, and we tried looking for someone who has been through it before but no one that we know of has. The scars are all as small as an earing stud, but they’re really dark and she is able to cover it with make-up but once shes outside, you can see the make-up so that’s not so good! And also these scars are on her nose so its really noticeable! These scars are ruining her life, since she knows about her people being able to see her make-up, she rarely hangs outside during the day. My sister is only 15 and I feel so bad for her not being able to live a teenage life because of these scars and I want to help her the best I can!

    DO YOU THINK THIS WOULD BE A GOOD OR BAD IDEA? And if someone has done this before, information on the prices is always nice to know! :)))))) THANKS!

  31. QUESTION:
    Better for scar removal…. Microdermabrasion or chemical peel?
    I have a couple of mild scars from acne on my face and some on my arms from keratin polaris(?) and I want to know what would be best for me to use to start helping them disappear. I have used fade creams before and they do not work. Does anyone have any suggestions for me?

    • ANSWER:
      If I were you, I would choose microdermabrasion. I’ve had them both and microderma is less invasive, doesn’t hurt at all and you can go back to work in a few minutes without anyone even noticing you were in a doctor’s office. You will need around 8 sessions for optimum results, but I say it’s worth the money.
      If you cannot afford a doctor’s office, you can still try one of the many at home kits available. Neutrogena, Dermanew and L’oreal are the most popular on the market.
      Hope this helps.

      * Wet a cotton ball with 1 teaspoonful of lemon juice,
      * Rub it into affected area,
      * Wait about 10 minutes and finally,
      * Wash your face with cold water.

WHICH IS THE BETTER CHOICE!?!

    Ten points for best answer!!

    • ANSWER:
      Have you considered micro needling to remove the acne scars instead of laser scar removal?

      My girlfriend has had great success treating scars with a derma roller.

      It is basically a skin roller with tiny pins in it which tickle when you roll it over your skin. Scars are often due to a lack of collagen in the skin – which makes skin smooth, supple and tight – but a derma roller triggers your skin’s natural healing process to generate more collagen.

      It also helps your favourite creams penetrate the skin better. Without it, over 90% of your cream is left on the outside of your skin!

      Negative effects have never been reported, so it is very safe, and yet very effective at evening out your skin.

      There is an article about acne scars here:

      http://www.derma-rollers.com/33/acne-scar-treatment-and-removal/

      And you can also read up on how derma rollers work here:

      http://www.derma-rollers.com/24/derma-roller-faqs/

      Good luck with it!

      Their website stated:

      Micro-needling of the skin is an increasingly common cosmetic procedure, but the Scientia Derma Roller is an FDA approved application which is simple enough that you can perform it yourself at home. In fact, it has similar results to Laser Treatment, Chemical Peels and Dermabrasion, but it is considerably less invasive and carries only a fraction of the cost.

      The Scientia Derma Roller can help to remove acne scars or remove surgery scars and the skin treated improves its level of elasticity, becoming thicker, smoother and is tightened.

    Also what product is good for the removal of acne scars, I just got done with all my acne problems; and now I’m just looking forward to getting rid of those little scars in my forehead.

    Best product, 10 points!

    • ANSWER:
      Try Cliniques 3 step systems, they have ones for irregular complexions and uneven skin tones.
      Eating hleathy and staying active, gives you a nice healthy look.

      Also, if theyre indents in your forehead, than laser treatments and chemical peels, issued by dermatoligists, may be the only solution.
      If theyre hyper pigmentation spots, try putting a bit of lemon on them each ngiht, to natrualyl bleach them. They do make fade creams these days too.
      But scars arent easy to get rid of and take patience and msot likely a visit to the dermatoligist.
      And congratutlations on curing your acne by the way.
      And the sun IS NOT a scar healer. It will make them them worse, becuase it will tell your ksin to make more melanin, hense hyper pigmentation, hense worse scars. ALWAYS WEAR SUNSCREEN

    Medical Question Please?
    Hello,
    Last night, I was studying, when all of a sudden, my whole upper body began to hurt, and it felt heave breathing. I felt as if my lungs were to collapse. It wasn’t extreme pain, just pain. I really do not know how to describe this, but it just hurt and it felt as if someone was sitting on my chest. I felt my breathing pipe constrict ( best term to describe) just a little bit. A few moments later, i felt as if i was being stabbed at the center of my ribcage, stomach. I also began to feel numbness (light numbness) across my body. Face, tongue, feet, legs. I fell asleep, and woke up better. I was scared it was gonna be a stroke, because i started to feel lightheaded too. However, I will be going to the doctor myself soon. Oh, and I also suffer from Acid Reflux, and it kinda felt like it was acting up, even though it has been under control for a very long time

    I was getting laser acne scar removals last month, and I know the lady who did those on me. She recommended i get tested for vitamin b12 defficiency anemia, but i never got around to it.

    I am an 18 year old male, and hopefully everything is ok, but I’d just like to have maybe a sort of opinion from you guys, before i head out to the doctor.

    Thanks!!

    • ANSWER:
      If you are taking acid blockers for your acid reflux, that is where the problems begin. Acid blockers lowers essential acid and you need stomach acid to kill of bacteria, fungi and parasites and absorb essential nutrients especially vitamin B12! Low stomach acid eventually leads to B12 deficiency. Acid reflux is in most cases caused by lack of digestive enzymes in the diet and/or insufficient stomach acid (rarely high stomach acid!). If you want a great way to prevent acid reflux – digestive enzyme supplements! If necessary, betaine hydrochloride or apple cider vinegar to make up for acid insufficiency.

      Vitamin B12 deficiency is often misdiagnosed due to far too low a reference range. If you take the test, optimal B12 serum levels are above 800pg/ml or 600pmol/l. A urinary methlymalonic acid test is more accurate and aids in the diagnosis of B12 deficiency.

  43. QUESTION:
    how to get rid of a keliod scar on upper lip near nose?
    i have a keliod scar on my upper lip near the nose on my left side, how do i get ride of it. first let me explain what it is and some existing treatments, which is best and is there any others. A keloid (also known as a “keloidal scar”[1]:1499) is a type of scar, which depending on its maturity, is composed of mainly either type III (early) or type I (late) collagen. It is a result of an overgrowth of granulation tissue (collagen type 3) at the site of a healed skin injury which is then slowly replaced by collagen type 1. Keloids are firm, rubbery lesions or shiny, fibrous nodules, and can vary from pink to flesh-coloured or red to dark brown in colour. A keloid scar is benign, non-contagious, and sometimes accompanied by severe itchiness and pain[2], and changes in texture. In severe cases, it can affect movement of skin.
    Keloids expand in claw-like growths over normal skin.[3] They have the capability to hurt with a needle-like pain or to itch without warning, although the degree of sensation varies from patient to patient.

    If the keloid becomes infected, it may ulcerate. Removing the scar is one treatment option, however may result in more severe consequences i.e. the probability that the resulting surgery scar will also become a keloid is high, usually greater than 50%. Laser treatment has also been used with varying degrees of success.

    Keloids form within scar tissue. Collagen, used in wound repair, tends to overgrow in this area, sometimes producing a lump many times larger than that of the original scar. Although they usually occur at the site of an injury, keloids can also arise spontaneously. They can occur at the site of a piercing and even from something as simple as a pimple or scratch. They can occur as a result of severe acne or chickenpox scarring, infection at a wound site, repeated trauma to an area, excessive skin tension during wound closure or a foreign body in a wound. Keloids can sometimes be sensitive to chlorine. Keloid scars can grow, if they appear at a younger age, because the body is still growing.

    Histologically, keloids are fibrotic tumors characterized by a collection of atypical fibroblasts with excessive deposition of extracellular matrix components, especially collagen, fibronectin, elastin, and proteoglycans. Generally, keloids contain relatively acellular centers and thick, abundant collagen bundles that form nodules in the deep dermal portion of the lesion. Keloids present a therapeutic challenge that must be addressed, as these lesions can cause significant pain, pruritus (itching), and physical disfigurement. They may not improve in appearance over time and can limit mobility if located over a joint.

    Keloids affect both sexes equally, although the incidence in young female patients has been reported to be higher than in young males, probably reflecting the greater frequency of earlobe piercing among women. There is a fifteen times higher frequency of occurrence in highly pigmented people. Persons of African descent are at increased risk of keloid occurrences.
    Keloids were described by Egyptian surgeons around 1700 BC. Baron Jean-Louis Alibert (1768–1837) identified the keloid as an entity in 1806. He called them cancroïde, later changing the name to chéloïde to avoid confusion with cancer. The word is derived from the Greek χηλή, chele, meaning “hoof”, here in the sense of “crab pincers”, and the suffix -oid, meaning “like”. For many years, Alibert’s clinic at L’Hôpital Saint-Louis was the world’s center for dermatology.

    Keloids should not be confused with hypertrophic scars, which are raised scars that do not grow beyond the boundaries of the original wound.

    Contents [hide]

    The best treatment is prevention in patients with a known predisposition. This includes preventing unnecessary trauma or surgery (including ear piercing, elective mole removal), whenever possible. Any skin problems in predisposed individuals (eg, acne, infections) should be treated as early as possible to minimize areas of inflammation.

    lntra-lesional corticosteroids — Intra-lesional corticosteroids are first-line therapy for most keloids. A systematic review found that up to 70 percent of patients respond to intra-lesional corticosteroid injection with flattening of keloids, although the recurrence rate is high in some studies (up to 50 percent at five years)[5]
    Excision — Scalpel excision may be indicated if injection therapy alone is unsuccessful or unlikely to result in significant improvement. Excision should be combined with preoperative, intraoperative, or postoperative triamcinolone or interferon injections[5]. Recurrence rates from 45 to 100 percent have been reported in patients treated with excision alone; this falls to below 50 percent in patients treated with combination therapy[6]
    Silicone gel sheeting — Silicone gel sheeting has been used for the treatment of symptoms (eg, pain and itching) in patients wit

    Weird Question?
    I went to my doctor because I have adult acne (she called it). I never had acne as a child and all of a sudden I have it. I have scars to. She told me the best to get was Lorell microdermenation kit and to get mederma for scar removal. I have been on this for a week and I couldn’t get to sleep last night because my face itched like crazy. It still itches. Do you have any idea why???

    • ANSWER:
      It could be a reation to the medication. Call your doctor to have it checked out. Hope you feel better soon. Good Luck!

  45. QUESTION:
    Polls: Yes, there are more than one included in this…?
    Poll 1: Who loves Bare Minerals as much as I’ve discovered I do? That stuff is amazing! Or if you tried it and don’t like it, what DO you like better?

    (I had horrible acne since the time I was 10 years old, and I’m nearly 20 now. I still have it to a degree but the worst are my acne scars. I want everyone to know what I know now. It can be pricey but you CAN buy it off of ebay for a good price. It has worked for me when NOTHING else did. It covers as it heals and rejuvenates your skin. If micro-dermabrasion, topical creams and washes, the dermatologist, or accutane dont work for you (because none did for me) Please try BARE MINERALS it may just work for you)

    Poll 2: What color nail polish do you think is the best for everyday ware? If you decide on a color, what brand is it?

    (Mine is Sally Hanson French tip nail kit…works like a charm)

    Poll 3: What is your favorite at home beauty treatment?

    (mine is any type of facial…so relaxing)

    Lastly, Poll 4: What is, in your opinion, the best line of cleansing products? Face wash, blemish removal, age fighting, moisturizer, etc.?

    (mine is Burt’s Bees…kind of expensive but there’s nothing like it)

    Hopefully this will help some of you to have the beautiful skin that I never did. Thanks for your answers!!!

    • ANSWER:
      1: I have barely used anything else since I 1st tried Bare Minerals
      2: OPI is the bet brand but I change my color weekly. They’re blue this week. To be tame, I’d say french mani.
      3: Manicures. I enjoy doing my own nails and do a much better job that anyone I’ve ever paid to do it. I shoulda been a manicurist!
      4: A dermatologist once told me to just use Ivory or Dial, basic soap so I don’t bother with all the cleansers. I usually just use a bit of my shampoo or those Biore towellettes.

  49. QUESTION:
    Can derma rolling damage a tattoo or make it disappear? (expert advice as well as anecdotal, most welcome!)?
    I have just started using a derma roller treatment for my face and the results are already very good – my skin looks much more even and acne scarring is almost invisible…so I will continue with this. I want to try using the derma roller for stretchmarks though. I understand this works best with a more pressurised and longer needle size (1.5 to 2mm seem to be what most recommend) so I am planning to try it with some anaesthetic cream (which I don’t need for my face). I have stretch marks on my hips and top of my legs and bottom…so that part will take a while and some coordination! But also I have stretchmarks on my boobs but my boobs are tattooed with a tribal design (black outlines with pastel colour shading) and I’m concerned that if I try working on the stretchmarks on my boobs with a weekly session or something, it might affect my tattoo or cause damage to it or make it disappear??? Any advice on this or experiences of this would be most helpful.

    What worries me is that derma rolling is meant to trigger the body to release collagen for repair and break down old scarring/collagen concentration…and I vaguely think that when you get a tattoo, it is held in place by the collagen as ‘heals’…I’m pretty sure I’ve heard of some peoples’ bodies rejecting tattoo ink because their collagen didn’t hold onto it??

    I almost think I’m answering my own question here! But I would like advice of derma rolling or tattooist or people who work with tattoo removal if possible!

    Look forward to hearing from you XX

    PS…this is a duplicate post so I could put in two different categories)
    I haven’t had any response yet – there must be someone out there who knows enough about tattoos…or enough about derma rolling to have an idea. Please respond :)

    • ANSWER:
      Laser treatment is very expensive. There are other much cheaper ways of removing acne scars and other skin imperfections that are very effective. I suggest you try dermarolling. Many people have had great results removing their acne scars using dermarolling. You can buy a good dermaroller for around . I recommend using the dermaroller in combination with Retin A cream (which is known to increase collagen production and repair scarred tissue) to achieve maximal results.


Best For Acne Prone Skin

You’re really excited about that date. You’ve been looking forward to it for weeks. You’ve planned every single detail, from what outfit you will be wearing down to the things that you will be talking about. Then just a few days before the big event, the most dreadful thing happens: your skin breaks out. Now all your thoughts about your upcoming date have been replaced by worries on how to get rid of acne fast.

Even if it is just one tiny pimple, the millions of acne sufferers around the world can attest to the fact that even the smallest red bump can negatively affect the way you feel about how you look. And not having enough confidence in yourself, especially on a very important date, can ruin the whole occasion for you entirely.

But don’t cancel that date just yet! There is still hope for you and your skin breakout. Here are some ways on how to get rid of acne fast.

1. A very popular home remedy for acne is good old toothpaste. Toothpaste quickly dries up acne without irritating the skin. To use toothpaste as an acne remedy, just dab a tiny amount directly onto the acne marks. Be careful not to get any toothpaste onto the surrounding skin. Do this at night, right before you go to sleep. By the time you wake up the next morning, your acne would have shrunken in size or would even have completely disappeared.

2. If you still have a week or a few days before your date, then you might want to use more natural ways of how to get rid of acne fast. This includes changing your diet to include more fruits and vegetables. These types of foods are rich in acne-fighting vitamins such as Vitamin A (balances hormones), C (boosts your immune system), and E (helps repair the skin). Other natural methods are to lessen the stress in your life (stress – a major cause of acne), keeping your face and anything that touches your face clean, and avoiding sweets and other junk food that can trigger acne. Apply these diet and lifestyle changes a few days before your date and your skin will clear up soon enough.

3. Over-the-counter acne treatments are also a popular method of how to get rid of acne fast. There are many overnight pimple cures, spot treatments, and acne clearing remedies that are available to you. Before choosing an acne treatment, you have to determine first the severity of your acne. Mild acne, moderate acne, and severe acne all have different treatments. Choose an acne treatment that is appropriate for your type of acne.

4. If worse comes to worse and you have run out of ways on how to get rid of acne fast, then you can go for the last resort: make up. Even if you will just be covering up your acne, it is still important that you choose makeup that is the right match for your skin type. Mineral and water-based types of makeup are best for acne prone skin and will not aggravate acne.

  3. QUESTION:
    Whats the best moisturizer for acne prone skin?
    i have mild acne and i want to know what moisturizer is best for acne prone skin.

    • ANSWER:
      Two really good ones are: Cetaphil and CeraVe. They work because they’re both oil-free, dermatologist recommended, and Cetaphil is also SPF 15.
      The only thing is you might need a dermatologist perscription…not really sure. But any moisturizer that is oil-free and is dermatologist recommended is good.

  4. QUESTION:
    What hair products are best for acne-prone skin?
    I have lots of thick, curly hair, and as a result need to use hair products. I’ve gone without using anything more than a few times a month for a while, but I really do need something smooth the curls and keep them shapely, or a straightening/heat protectant lotion for when I blow-dry it and use a straightening iron. I have no problem finding products that work, but then my skin ends up suffering because washing product out every night would kill my hair. I have extremely acne-prone skin, and have yet to find anything that makes my hair look great without making my skin break out worse. Anyone out there have any suggestions?
    Also, price isn’t an issue- a quality product is worth the cost.
    I do use proactiv- that wasn’t the question.

    • ANSWER:
      The salon product I was using was making my hair extremely oily and giving me acne around my hairline, but the product I switched to (which my company makes, lol) has cleared both of those problems up. It took a little while tho (a few months).

  5. QUESTION:
    Which MAC concealer is the best for acne-prone skin?
    I have an oily t-zone (with some zits) and dry skin on my cheeks. I was planning to go with the Studio Finish one because one their website they claim that it doesn’t cause break-outs. But I heard from some people that the Studio Finish does break you out and the Studio Sculpt is better for acne-prone skin. Any suggestions?

    • ANSWER:
      Depending on what kind of coverage that you want… The Studio Finish has AMAZING coverage and covers every blemish or discoloration. It also stays on for a longer time. On the other hand, the Studio Sculpt is a bit less pigmented and doesn’t last as long. Overall, I would reccomend the Studio Finish, if it breaks you out then you can return it because MAC has a really good return policy.

  6. QUESTION:
    What natural looking makeup is best for acne prone skin?
    I have very fair, sensitive, oily, prone to breakout, large pores, stress affected skin. Over the years, I have tried so many different types of makeup from Maybelline, MAC, Lorac, and now currently Bare Minerals. I still breakout! I have used Proactiv (too drying), currenly using Juice Beauty (love it) and Bare Minerals Skin Rever-Upper. Any suggestions? The little bums are so irritating, and yet I want to have makeup on that is good for my skin. Please Help!

    • ANSWER:
      Clinique makes a good oil-free foundation. Also, Clean and Clear dual action moisturizer is great for acne-prone skin.

  7. QUESTION:
    What company makes the best all around skin care products for acne-prone skin, regardless of price.?
    I am 21 searching for the best skin-care product for my acne-prone skin. I have tried many prescription drugs for my skin, and over the counter treatments, none of them seemed to please me. I am looking for something that will deliver dramatic results, and even erase the scars that my acne has left behind. I have tried just about all of the prescription methods except acutan.

    I have acne prone, sensitive, combination skin (oily, dry-depending on the day, it varies)

    I hate it!! Ive recently had a whole product swap and am using neutrogena visibly clear range (pink grapefruit wash, 2in1 mask/wash and oil free moisturizer) and have swapped my foundation for a different one, which makes my skin feel oily, so ive gone for yet another one which the shop lady recommended for sensitive skin (max factor lasting perfection – or something like that) I have been using that since yesterday and that seems fine.

    • ANSWER:
      I’ve never tried it myself but have heard alot about Dermablend, meant to be really good! Also you might want to try mineral makeup, it’s a powder, but offers full coverage, whilst feeling lightweight, and as the name suggests it is made entirely from minerals so would be great for your skin! There’s alot of different brands making this both high street brands and premium brands. I know clinique do a good range and also other types of makeup which contain salycilic acid and are free from oils (look out for makeup and creams that are non comedogenic, this basically means non pore clogging, which is what you want!

      Have you visited the doctor about your acne? There are so many treatments available, so please do not suffer unnecessarily as I know how annoying acne is! Good luck.

  23. QUESTION:
    What is the best skin care produces for oily clogged pores acne prone skin and best body wash for bacne?

    • ANSWER:
      Neutrogena Body Wash is perfect. I have oily skin and it clears almost 95% of my acne away.. You can also try the Clean and Clear Morning Burst Face Wash on your back. I know that sounds weird, but it really does help get rid of them! Make sure you use a washcloth or something too, it’ll help get out all the dirt from your skin.

      For your face, try Neutrogena daily scrub. It’s in an orange little bottle, and if you use it twice a day, your face will start to clear up (: Neutrogena has a lot of great products.. and they’re not that expensive either!

      Look for products with salicylic acid, that usually is the best for taking out and dirt and oil from your face.

      Drink tons of water.. Water REALLY helps your skin. I didn’t think so, but I’ve started drinking more and more water each day because I was told I was dehydrated.. and my skin looks SO much better! Also keep away from a lot of sugary junk foods.. those clog up your pores. Keep a healthy diet (:

      If you’re looking for a more natural remedy, try using lemon juice on your face. It will sting a little, but that’s how you know it’s working (: And you can even use it as an exfoliator! Put some lemon juice on your washcloth/paper towel, sprinkle a little sugar on it, scrub it on your face (after you’ve rinsed your face with warm water) and then rinse with cool water. Your face will feel so soft!

      Hope I helped!

    I have acne prone skin, and to cover everything it’s usually a ritual of concealer, then liquid foundation, and then powder on top of that.
    Which all of that makeup causes my skin to break out even more. It’s just a mess.
    Recommendations?
    I prefer not to use drugstore products, but if they work for you, then go ahead and tell me, haha!

    • ANSWER:
      I have found mineral makeups to accentuate my acne. And makeups with shimmer or subtle sparkles also make my acne more prominate. However on great skin days with no acne using them is fine. If you have acne often and it is something you want to hide I would recommend one of these makeups. They are not drug store and they are not cheap but cover well and won’t create further acne.

      Gerlain Silky-Smooth Foundation Semi-matte This can be about bucks whoooa that is pricey

      Estee Lauder Doublewear This make up covers every things and lasts 10 hours.

      Mac Studio Fix, with Studio Powder can soak up oils and cover acne. A matte look that does not accentuate acne NOt sure the price an this may be found in some drug stores not sure.

      Lancome Teint Idole silky matte

      Christian Dior Diorskin Extreme Wear Flawless make up around
      This works AMAZING but you need the primer Dior Skin control colors GREEN. Green makes ruddy, red, acne scars, acne fade out.

      Lastly, I have some tips to really cure or keep acne at bay.

      1) Clean, Clean, Clean, I don’t just mean your face every night, but use a cotton ball of alcohol swab to clean your cell phone, you home phone, your head phones…. Use a fresh pillow case every night or flip it over and swith it every other night. The oil from our hair and while we sleep from our face accumulates on the pillow case and goes right to producing more acne.

      2) If you have long hair, wash it as often as you can and pull it away from your face when you are at home. Pony tails to keep the grease or dusty hair off your face.

      3) Add yogurt to your diet, Zinc vitamins and a good multi.

      4) Bubble baths. If you can take a bath every night. The relaxation of the tub helps to clean the pores, relax the body and cope with anxiety which can also lead to acne. My grandma used to say Anger = Acne. If you can let your anger out by going for a walk, run, bike ride, punching a pillow or letting it out with a good yell it won’t need to erupt on your face. (This of course is an old wives tale and does not work for everyone) It does work for me.

      5) If the acne is really bugging you go to a dermatologist. They can prescribe a two week round of meds to clear the skin and some creams to keep the skin clear forever. It is worth any price of make up to have clean skin. You will feel more confident and you can use any makeup.

I have super oily skin and always break out if I put something on it that it doesn’t agree with. Any suggestions on the best sunscreen for me? Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      Having acne prone skin is not that uncommon, and taking care of if is something that a lot of acne sufferers have been discussing with each other over the years. The basic skin care for acne prone skin tips that you get from other people are often the result of trial and error, as well as advice from dermatologists who know what can and cannot aggravate an acne situation. Skin care requires attention to detail as well as dedication in order to help keep your skin clean and clear. Skin care may also require the use of selected products that are formulated to clean the skin without irritating it.

      A lot of products made for skin care for acne prone skin are usually oil free, and they contain certain ingredients that clean and disinfect the areas that are prone to bacteria. Since acne is a result of many factors, some of which are dirt, bacteria and excess oils, keeping your skin clean and bacteria free is one of the ways that you can keep acne from appearing. Usual products are cleansers, soaps, toners and acne creams. These are produced with formulations that are aimed at treating the elements that can cause bacteria, and if coupled with a regimen that ensures clean skin, they can prove to be very effective in getting rid of acne problems.

      Of course, the use of acne treatment products is not the only option for individuals who need skin care for sensitive skin. The need for careful protection of the skin that is treated with acne medication is also one of the basic rules you need to follow if you want to keep your skin free from acne. Sunblocks that are non-comedogenic and acne treatment products that have sunscreen in them are just some of the things you may have to use to keep the harmful rays of the sun away from your skin. You may also need to shield yourself from the sun with the use of a baseball cap, a sun visor or even an umbrella on really hot days.

      Aside from cleaning, treating and protecting your skin to keep acne at bay, another tip can be included in the list of basic skin care for acne prone skin tips. Shaving can cause your skin to break if you are not careful. If you have acne prone skin or skin that has a few acne lesions on it, you may need to exercise caution when running that razor over your face. These little cuts may cause scarring or may even cause the presence of bacteria to increase. Using alternative methods for shaving, like electric razors, may be a worthwhile practice.

    What’s the best skin care system for acne prone skin?
    The birth control pill has always helped my skin, but currently I’m breastfeeding. Pro Active is far too drying for me, and even makes my skin look dry and leathery. I have very large pores, and therefore millions of blackheads (yuck!). I tend to break out mostly on my forehead, hairline and jaw. I appreciate any stories of success or any advice! Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      Wendy,
      I had the same problem. First of all I tried pro-active and it dried my skin out too. The one thing I learned was that I was doing too much to my skin. Scrubbing and witch hazel was too harsh and actually irritated my face by how often I used it…daily. I changed my BareMinerals make-up to Almay foundation because the powdery natural make-up infected my break outs, so it would never heal and clear up. I wash my face daily with Olay face wash and then use clean and clear daily Pore Cleanser. Every other day or twice a week, I use Olay toner and Olay Exfoliating Scrub, and follow up with Olay Moisture Cream.

      It seems like a lot of products, but you have no idea how little it is. I see very few break outs. Maybe one itty bitty blemish every other day.

      I hope it works for you!

  37. QUESTION:
    What are the best products for Acne Prone skin?
    Hi, I am a teenager girl and lately my skin has been breaking out like crazy and has been taking a really long time to heal. What products do you recommend that won’t dry out my skin but will help fight my acne? Are their foods i should be eating everyday to help my skin?

    • ANSWER:
      I am 38 and I have had really bad acne since I was 14. I went on antibiotics for years and then Accutane three times! Each time it would help for a year or so then it would wear off and I would start getting acne again. My acne has continued into adulthood. I tried everything over the counter and prescription topicals. Some worked for a while, but none would prevent outbreaks, which caused some red marks and scarring. I preferred things with salicylic acid over those with benzoyl peroxide. Nothing topical would work all the time for me :(

      I tried eliminating greasy foods, chocolate, caffeine, and sugar. None of those worked for me. In my opinion the cause is different for each person.

      Recently I changed my diet and my acne ALL went away! I was so shocked. I never thought my acne would go away. What do I eat now? I eat lots of fruits, vegetables, dairy, fish, seafood, nuts, seeds, and olives. I eat less than 40g of sugar per day (on average). I also eat in the Zone at most meals. See the book “Enter the Zone” by Dr. Sears, it explains the science behind food in your body. I still eat dark chocolate and iced tea (without sugar) every day! Still no acne! Originally I went on the diet to improve my health (I had a stubborn 20 pounds I wanted to lose too! I lost the 20 pounds and have tons of enery! And my skin looks great. I don’t even get a few pimples anymore. I get no acne. Okay I might get three pimples each year now!

      My sister had a similar acne problem, she is 37. We have been trying to figure out what got rid of my acne because she still has acne and has been eating “healthy” for over a decade now. She is on an ultra-low fat diet and eats: lean meats, lots of whole grains, fruits and vegetables, and very little sugar.

      We decided there are only four differences in our diets:
      1. I stopped eating meat (except fish & seafood)
      2. I eat a lot of monounsaturated fats (found in nuts, seeds, olives, and olive oil)
      3. I eat very little bread, cereal pasta, cookies, or whole grains. [this used to be one of my favorites!]. Less than one serving per day, often none. Carbs are in fruits and vegetables and that is where I get my carbohydrates now.
      4. I combine foods similar to the Zone (not perfectly, nor all the time!)

      It is very likely # 3 that is causing her acne. She just started to try that one. She has tried #1 and it wasn’t the meat. She refuses to try #2 [ultra-low fat is just too important to her].

      There are also books on improving acne with your diet. Kat James wrote a book called, “The Truth About Beauty”. It describes how to transform your looks without surgery (via foods you choose). Also, Nicolas Perricone wrote a book called, “The Perricone Prescription” which talks about foods that improve your skin. He also lots of other books on similar topics. Most of these books can probably be checked out of your local library for free!

      I say keep searching, you will find what causes your acne!

  38. QUESTION:
    What cleanser is best for acne-prone, oily skin?
    I heard that most cleansers for acne-prone and oily skin actually make the skin more oily because they strip off the oil. Then the skin tries to cope with that by producing more oil. Is that true? What cleansers would you recommend for me? I have really oily skin and I get blemishes easily because of it. I’ve tried the neutrogena acne wash and it didn’t work.

    Thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      Try Kiehl’s products, they work really well. Also Clinique. Just don’t use proactiv, its awful.

  39. QUESTION:
    Bare Minerals or Proactiv Solution? Which makeup line is best for acne-prone skin?
    Even though I’m 26 years old, I continue to battle acne on a daily basis. I’ve recently begun using the Proactiv Solution system and have seen moderate results. I am looking to change from my usual makeup to something that will also improve my skin. Any suggestions about these two options I’m considering or other makeups that you’ve tried will be appreciated.

    • ANSWER:
      Everyday Minerals. All natural and fewer ingredients than even Bare Minerals. You can order a free sample kit from their website. Plus, they’re less expensive than Bare Minerals, and there are more face color options as well as finish options (matte, semi-matte, etc.) to match to your skin type.

      Keep using the Proactiv system. I didn’t have a problem with acne until I was 27 and that’s the only thing that cleared it up. Good luck!

    Best skincare brand for acne prone skin?
    I was wonder which brand of skincare products would work best on acne-prone, combo/oily skin? Do brands like Murad and DDF work?

    What is the best natural soap for sensitive, acne prone skin? My skin is extremely sensitive and only natural products treat it best. I’m also on a budget!!! I can’t afford to spend a lot of money. Any suggestions?

    • ANSWER:
      I use acne treatment facial bar from Best Bath Store. Just like you, I have a very sensitive skin, and most products would even make it worse. I’m very happy with this soap.

  43. QUESTION:
    What is the best foundation for acne prone skin?
    I don’t have to many pimples, but I would like to cover up what I do have. What will make my skin look flawless (or almost flawless) My skin is also oily.

    • ANSWER:
      Anything non-comedogenic. It should say on the box.
      (That means that it won’t block your pores.)

      Personally, I use Prescriptives. It’s not the greatest- it’s pricey and you can tell that I’m wearing it if you look closely. It’s hard to find a foundation that looks 100% natural.

      Also keep in mind that the lighter (less heavy) the foundation is, the better.

      And finally, wear powder after you put on foundation and it has set. This creates a more finished look.

      its a small investment for such an enormous result

  45. QUESTION:
    Which mineral make-up is best for acne-prone skin?
    I used to use RawMinerals, but I recently heard how much of a scam it is… haha… well I loved how it made my skin look, and I never broke out. I break out very easily, does anyone with similiar issues have any suggestions of some mineral make-up brands that will not cause a break out??

    • ANSWER:
      Bare Minerals is what stays on and looks the best without having you break out.
      If you’re looking for more of a long term solution, and you break out heavily, i would really suggest going on Accutane. It dystrophies your oil glands, so that you don’t break out as much. I went on it for 4 months, and for two months afterward i could put anything on my face, and not a single pimple. Now a few months later, after i’ve been using liquid foundation, i have 2-3 little tiny pimples on my face, and a few on my shoulder (where i used to have acne), but i suppose it is just because i am not taking proper care of my skin.

  46. QUESTION:

So what would be the best product for me to use? I’ve tired a few different brands, and they all rub off throughout the day, or don’t cover very well to begin with. I’ve also heard Mary Kay is nice, is that true?

  47. QUESTION:
    What would be the best foundation for acne prone skin?
    I know it would be best to not even wear any at all, but I am human and I’d love to look my best of course!

    • ANSWER:
      I know how you feel, I have oily and acne skin with a lot of acne scars. And I recently found Revlon Colorstay. It’s very,very good. I use the one for oily skin mostly because it gives better coverage than the normal. It covers EVERYTHING. It’s amazing. It is a little pricey depends where you buy it but I got mine for like 11.00 anf the it was buy one get 1 free. This foundation stays on all day, no matter what. I used to always have to touch up but I always looks fresh and natural and very very pretty and flawless. I just started using it. I switched to it from bare minerals. This stuff it great. You could also get the kind for normal skin if you don’t need as much coverage. But the one for oily skin is my fav because it covers better, doesn’t shine, lasts ALL day and I mean all day it stays on until you take it off. Although it might look a bit different but it stills looks great. People are always complimenting my skin. And I have very bad skin. And it doesn’t break me out, and it has a little spf in it not much I think it’s like 6. I’m not sure. But they also make a colorstay active. I’ve never tried it but it’s supposed to stay on through sweating and stuff. But I don’t think it has a much coverage. To apply the foundation I would use a sponge or foundation brush, but you have to work fast, you don’t even need to apply it to your whole face it you don’t need it, sometimes I just use it as a concealer. DON’T go with bare minerals. I tried it. I have your exact skin and I thought it would be PERFECT for my skin. But it wasn’t I was so disappointed. It is good for your skin, it’s very good actually. But if you have oily skin-STAY AWAY. I’ve learned from experience. I thought it would e GREAT for my oily and acne skin.It gives GREAT coverage but the oils in my skin fades it in a few hours and looks horrible, even with the mineral veil. It is a very good product, it covers zits well and makes you look flawless healthy and radiant but it comes off with oily, probably even comination skin. This is mostly for normal or dry skin. Also if you touch your face it rubs off almost completely so your skin look so weird and blotchy if you touch your face a lot. If you have dry or normal or combination(maybe) skin it will work GREAT for you but again oily, don’t get it! Here’s come reviews for colorstay

  2. QUESTION:
    best foundation for covering up acne marks and best mascara?
    that you can get at like target that’s around like or less. i can never seem to find a foundation that covers my blemishes and last all day.

    • ANSWER:
      I know this sounds weird, but the Matte Mouse from Maybelliene is PERFECT for lasting all day and covering blemishes, with just ONE little secret.
      When I buy mine I always leave it out with the cap off for a while so that it becomes more crumbly than oily. This way, this “stale” version of the makeup stays put all day, even for swimming! and the coverage is great!

      as far as mascara, i love Telescopic by Loreal, it makes my lashes look amazing and stays put all day!

  3. QUESTION:
    What concealer is best for red acne marks?
    I have many red marks (think dozens) on each cheek. Most are small. Some are pretty big. I have a green base but it doesn’t cover it all. What brand of concealer is the best for my skin? i need to cover up each individual mark completely.

    • ANSWER:
      First of all you need to treat the spots. Check out Murad’s Post Acne Spot Lightening Gel. This will help to fade the spots and is the best product of its kind on the market.

      Now, to cover up. If you wear makeup, I would suggest getting the Colorescience Line Tamer – the name is deceiving – this is great for giving your face a matte finish and to even out skin tone. Next, I would apply Bare Minerals Concealer in Summer Beige with SPF with a concealer brush and then go over the entire face with Bare Minerals Foundation with a kabuki brush for maximum coverage.

      I have several models who have to have near perfect faces for runway and shoots (no, airbrushing does not always work!) and this is what I do for them and have good results.

      Another tip is to stay out of the sun while trying to get rid of the spots. The sun only exacerbates the problem.
      Hope this helps!
      Good luck!! :)

    • ANSWER:
      Well,when it comes to acne scars,you should include a scar serum in your skincare regime since this could improve your scar appearance by promoting healing and cell renewal.Plus,you could also use Vitamin E or Cocoa Butter since these really works wonders on acne scars.However,if you would like to opt for remedies,I would suggest different 4 steps that you could try at home to improve your scars.

      Baking Soda-Exfoliate your skin with baking soda. Often times, a version of baking soda is used in cosmetic microdermabrasion treatments. You can give yourself a mini microdermabrasion treatment by mixing one teaspoon of baking soda with the two teaspoons of filtered water.Then gently rub the mixture on your acne scar for sixty seconds then rinse it off.

      Fresh Fruits-In addition to eating fresh fruits to supply your skin with collagen building vitamin C, you can also smear them onto your face for gentle acid exfoliation. Just puree a forth a cup of pineapple and smooth it onto your face. Leave it for 10-15 minutes, then rinse. Since the pineapple contains ascorbic acid, it will impart a brightening effect on the face, and help fade acne marks.

      Apple And Honey-Using a blender, make a mixture out of 1 peeled apple with 1 tablespoon of yogurt, half a cucumber and 1 tablespoon of honey. Apply on face, leave for 20 minutes and wash off with warm water.

      Olive Oil-Massage a pea-sized amount of olive oil onto your face.Acne scaring can cause the skin to lose its elasticity and suppleness.The moisturizing nutrients in the olive oil will penetrate the skin to deeply moisturize the skin and soften the skin’s texture.

      Well,these are those 4 remedies that works best for your skin that impose no irritation to your skin.Good luck trying these at home and pick one that suits you.Hope this helps and great skin wishes.

      P/s:You could also opt to use a facial scrub once a week to gently exfoliate your dead skin cells to improve skin complexion.Do try these remedies I suggest you.It work wonders on my skin and I’m sure it would do you the same.Hope this helps:-)

    which is he best acne removal cream even for deep black acne marks??
    which is he best acne removal cream even for deep black acne marks?? plz help me out

    • ANSWER:
      In common parlance, acne occurs when the pores of the skin are blocked by natural oil produced by our bodies and dirt. This mostly occurs during the onset of puberty, as the hormones are developing and also occurs regularly in pregnant women.

      There are various acne products available in the market. People are taking antibiotics as an acne treatment much more today than in the past. However what happens is that your body becomes resistant to them, thus eliminating antibiotics as the best acne treatment.

    what is the best treatment for acne marks?

    • ANSWER:
      Acne – Acne Scars and Their Treatment

      The unsightly appearance of acne lesions or pimples isn’t the only potential problem with the disease, unfortunately. In some cases, it’s possible for acne to leave permanent scars.

      Some conditions may appear to be scars that are not. Macules and other bumps can occur even after acne is treated. Redness may persist for up to a year. But these aren’t true scars. They’re not permanent.

      True scars are a permanent change to skin tissue produced by the healing process itself, chiefly creating fibrous tissue. As white blood cells attack bacteria they can produce changes in underlying skin cells in the surrounding area. This is one way scars become permanent.

      They may also not be limited to areas under the surface.

      So-called icepick scars are small pinholes that form in the surface of the skin. They look as if the skin has been poked with an icepick, hence the name. They’re typically too deep to be treated with simple dermabrasion or even laser resurfacing.

      Boxcar scars are similar, except they tend to be flatter on the bottom, rather than narrowing to a point like icepick scars. Since they’re often shallower they can sometimes be treated with resurfacing techniques.

      Keloid scars are firm and grow beyond the site of the injury. They’re characterized by an excess production of collagen. They often result in a shiny pink or red scar.

      Prevention is the best option, of course. But when that’s not possible, there are a number of standard treatments.

  17. QUESTION:
    What products are best for covering up post acne marks?
    I used to have very bad acne. Now my face is fairly clear, but i always have these hideous reminders of what was once there: huge red spots. they make me look like i have an enormous amount of pimples, but they are really flat. because of it, my face always looks red and it wont tan. the rest of my body is a deep bronze color, and my face is a pale white. i always get comments on it. what can i do to solve all of this ?!

    • ANSWER:
      I recommend Physicians Formula. It does wonders for me.
      I’ve just recently gotten out of the whole acne stage and is recovering from the scars. They are slowly fading away but leave me feeling a bit insecure when going out.
      So, I use Physicians Formula to do some touch ups and they leave your skin feeling really smooth. Also, if your scars or marks are fairly light, they’d be almost covered completely.
      Moreover, because of the special ingredients used to make their products, it actually prevents you from breaking out.
      I highly recommend that you give it try.

    Best acne treatment for light acne and marks?
    I’ve had quite a bit of acne last year. Mostly in the chin. And it left some marks after they disappeared. Now they seem to have gone away but I do get one here and there at times. The marks of the previous pimples are still noticeable so I was looking for a product that would help get rid of that but I wasn’t sure which one to get. I don’t want something that focuses so much on acne as it does on those marks. However, I would like protection against future pimples. Will I have to buy 2 products for this or is there a 2-in-1 kind of thing? I’ve seem commercials with proactive and clean and clear but I’m not sure which one’s right for me.

    • ANSWER:
      Acne Marks or Scars

      Here is a simple tip that you can use to reduce your acne scars and pigmentation.

      The Oil Cleansing Method
      What you will need:
      Warm Water
      Cold Water
      Clean Towels
      Castor Oil
      Olive Oil

      The first thing you need to do is to wash your face gently to remove excess dirt and oils from the surface.

      You will then need to warm a clean towel in warm water and apply it to your face for 3 minutes. Do the same thing with the cold water but this time for one minute.

      Carry out both the warm water and cold water procedure about 3 times but always finish with cold and then pat dry with another clean towel.

      Next mix a small amount of castor oil with a small amount of olive oil. A 50/50 ratio will do just fine. Apply the mixture to your skin and let it stay there for 30 minutes and then rinse with warm water. Pat dry with a clean towel and you are good to go.

    What’s the best facial exfoliation for acne scars & marks?
    laser peeling?fruit acids?crystal peeling?,what’s the best with the least side effects?by the way am getting married by the mid of aug.
    what do u think is better for me.
    plz plz help

    • ANSWER:
      I’ve heard some bad things about peelings, so if you do it, make sure it is wayyyy before the wedding so that you give your skin some time to recover from any redding or side effects it may leave. Most blemishes can be covered up with make-up that day.

      I use St Ives apricot face scrub, which exfoliates, every 2 days (daily may be too harsh) and love how it evens out my tone. Mary Kay also sells a micro-dermabrasion kit that I hear ppl rave so much about.

      Bc it is such a huge event, I would see a specialist (dermatologist) who can make the safest and best recommendations for your skin type. Congrats on your wedding, and I’m sure you’ll look beautiful!

    I GOT THOSE REDISH AND BROWNISH MARKS ALL OVER MY FACE CAUSED BY ACNE. I TRIED MEDERMA FOR ABOUT 3 MONTHS NOW AND IT DOESNT HELP.

    • ANSWER:
      I’ve dealt with acne for years. Stress is a cause of acne. So, don’t stress yourself too much about the situation. Stray away from sodas if you drink them. I stopped drinking sodas completely & start seeing a change. Drink plenty of water & I mean plenty of water . . . it helps flush out toxins in your system. Lay off too much sugar & starch. Exercising also helps. Eat plenty of fruits & vegetables. I have also tried meds from my previous doctors & didn’t help out @ all.

  28. QUESTION:
    What is the best and safest way of getting rid of acne marks? I used to have a lot of acne, but don’t anymore
    I used to have a lot of acne, but now it’s all cleared up. Basically, every single pimple I’ve had has left a mark. I’m scared of hydroquinone because of the risk of cancer. What will lighten my dark marks safely and fast? I’ve tried so many products, bu tnone seem to work. My face has been blotchy for years. what do I do?

    • ANSWER:
      The overall real cure all is sea water. To soak in the sea and
      then get overexposed to sunlight, does lighten the preventers
      in hydroquin skin naturals. This enhanced with vitamin e,
      and b 6 can upgrade the repair of skin. Without excessive
      sunburn, eventual and complete swimming hobbies will take
      one year to repair the majority. Some vitamin e menu can help
      and I would recommend a regular average skin lotion. Total use of say 1 tablespoon per day. If you have access to a spa and
      cannot get into the sea get some sea salt solution. Pour in
      about 2 cups in a dispenser, of larger granules, and take it
      out after enough dissolves. These last up to 6 baths.

    Best acne fading cream & stretch mark fading cream in stores? ?
    Hi, I am looking for a good acne fading cream that’s in store. I have acne marks on my face and especially on my back and right arm. I’m sick of them and I need something that will truly work & that is not a waste of money . And I’m also looking for a real good stretch mark cream, there really light on my tummy , bt on my hips they are really dark and deep. I had a baby one year ago and I want them gone. Please help ! ! ! & ps: I’m African american . Thanks :)

    • ANSWER:
      If you want to maintain super clear, radiant skin, I say use Skin Biology products. I just got their Super CP serum and Exfol Serum that you can buy together for .95 on Ebay. Each bottle is 1 oz and I think it will last about two months. Hey, I had to spend the money because I broke out really bad about a week ago. I looked on Youtube and Yahoo Answers for the best recommendations. Someone on Yahoo mentioned copper peptides is better than retin A. Copper peptides are the active agents in skin care products that heal and renew the skin. It also tightens the pores. My skin is as smooth as my daughter’s skin right now. I keep touching my face and looking in the mirror. The Skin Biology products really do use a good amount of copper peptides, unlike more expensive watered down products. I can only imagine how my skin is going to look in a week or even month! I’m so excited. I finally found what I am going to use for years and years to stay looking young. I just want everyone to know about it.

      I haven’t used it on stretch marks yet, but I just know it will work like it has on my face and elbows.

Can anyone suggest a product to treat these marks? I tried searching online but all I get are ads! I need neutral unbiased opinions from people who’ve tried it as to what really works. Suggestions?

    • ANSWER:
      The best way of getting rid of discoloration from acne is to go to a dermatologist and get a chemical peel. There are over the counter chemical peels on the market but they probably would not be strong enough or good enough to get rid of those marks effectively.

    • ANSWER:
      For getting age and acne marks off face there is a simple safe, natural cure that has helped many on Answers. I had pronounced scars from childhood accidents and pimple scars. Treatment got completely rid of them all. It’s low cost as it’s using safe, natural oils. Use any, but the best for acne prone skins is lavender or grape seed – used by skin specialists for clearing up acne. Will not clog, cause break outs or make skin oily. First, in area being worked on, you make skin taught by tightening face muscles and this prevents pulling or stretching of skin and then rub them over and over many times and the rubbing friction simply rubs them away. For best and quickest results do for 5 to10 minutes several times a day. Some users reported significant fading in only 3 or 4 days and better results day by day. Try it – you will be happy that you did! See my many Best Answers for more info. ( scars, etc) and glowing reports from users.

  40. QUESTION:
    What is the best acne product to use?
    Some night I forget to wash my face. But I have been using proactiv, what I don’t get us that it is guaranteed to prevent new pimples from happening. So how come if I forget to wash for one night I wake up with zits? And sometimes it leaves round pimple mArks? Should I use a new Acne system? Or should I be more responsible about washing my face? Any suggestions??

    • ANSWER:
      Proactive works for some people but not all. They thing that they don’t master is that everyone has different skin, which means everyone’s acne is different. So therefore, they found the most common types of acne and skin and made it for the majority.

      Anyway, if you are using Proactive every night and have used it without skipping for 60 days straight and acne is still there, then you need to look for another product.

      If not, keep using it regularly and drink plenty of water.

      My suggestion is to maybe try some home remedies. There are a ton out there, you just need to find the right one for you.

      I had horrible acne throughout my teenager years and i found a remedy that works.

      The secret is to use sugar, cinnamon, and a little bit of water to make a paste. Put it on your face like a mask. It will burn but keep it on as long as possible up to 30 minuets. Wash it off after.

      Mix Lemon Juice with water. add a teaspoon or two to a bottle of water and drink a few bottles a day.

      You can even take lemon juice and spread it on your face. Again, this will sting but keep it on . This one you can keep on all night, the stinging should go away after a few minuets.

      Hope all works out for you man, acne sucks!

And if you are affected with acne, all you want is to enhance your skin condition as fast as possible by looking for the best over the counter acne treatment. There’s so much advertising about different acne treatment products online and in TV, and with all those selections it can only make quite hard for us to decide for the correct choice.

Examples of these are topical bactericidal which has antibacterial compounds which helps destroy acne bacteria. They can be in the form of gel, cream, bar soaps and facial washes. So, it is safe to use milder concentration initially. These treatments might be dear but there are some that are cheap too. Just remember that not all expensive products are the best ones.

It’s best to ask recommendation to pharmacist over the best acne treatment product.

  6. QUESTION:
    What is the best acne face wash?
    I use clearasil ultra and it works pretty good. But is there any other acne face washes that clear up your face in less then a week because it says on the daily face wash and acne cream it takes 3 days but it took about a week and a half for me but i still have some acne. Bause i dont want to go back to school worrying about my acne!!

    Thanks

    • ANSWER:
      the best thing to use is something soft. i know it feels like you should use something that says it will get rid of acne in a few days but they can really harm your skin! i suffered from severe acne for yrs and tried everything. the best advice i can give you is use rose water, dermotologists recommended it to me and its the best thing ive ever used! taking zinc supplements and using a cream containg benzoyl peroxide. it took a lot to get rid of my acne and when i finally got rid of this is what i used, if i dont do it it starts to come back. you should keep this up even when your skin clears up

  7. QUESTION:
    what are the best acne face cleansers for preventing acne?
    I already use proactiv and it kinda works but it dries my skin too much so I want to switch to something that will just prevent new acne while keeping my skin looking clear.

    • ANSWER:
      I’ve also tried Proactiv, with the same results. It contains benzoyl peroxide, which is effective for clearing up acne but also dries your skin out.

      I’ve found that the Cetaphil products work the best, especially the “Gentle Skin Cleanser” one. They’re in blue/green bottles, and you can find them at Walmart and Walgreens. A lot of the other facial cleansers are okay, but they have fragrances and artificial colors that can make your skin dry or red.

      Wash your face with that once a day – no more, or your skin will get dry again. Also pick up a 5-10% benzoyl peroxide cream, and apply that only to the acne spots.

      Another tip – wash your pillow cases once a week. Oil from your face and hair can build up on the pillow case, and you don’t want to rub that into your face all night. I hope this will help! ^^

  8. QUESTION:
    What would be the best acne face wash for me?
    I get pimples on my chin and cheeks and side of my nose. I was thinking of getting the new at.Ives green tea cleanser or clean and clear. They both have salicylic acid. Which would work better? Any other suggestions?

    • ANSWER:
      Since your acne does not seem too severe may I suggest just getting a bar of Nutregena Acne Prone Skin Soap. I tried every face wash that CVS by my house sold and my acne just kept getting worse. So I switched to just using the soap and since it has very little chemicals it gets rid of the oil with out irritating your skin.

  9. QUESTION:
    What’s the best acne face wash for extremely sensitive skin?
    I’m allergic to benzoyl peroxide, so I can’t use any products containing even a trace of benzoyl peroxide.

      I would recommend Zenmed’s Derma Cleanse Acne Gel.
      These are its ingredients:

      Salicylic Acid 2.0 %
      Purified Water
      Witch Hazel Distillate
      Vegetable Glycerin
      Hydroxyethylcellulose
      Sodium Glycolate
      Spiraea Ulmaria Extract
      Vitamin B5
      Methylisothiazolinone

  10. QUESTION:

    Any little bit of advice helps!

    • ANSWER:
      You poor thing. Are you tied to drugstore brands, or can you use something from a department store? Sometimes there is a difference.

      If you can afford it, try the Murad acne system. It comes with a nice gentle cleanser, an oil-free moisturizer (which will keep your skin pH balanced and healthy), and a spot treatment (along with a few other goodies). I think a month’s supply for everything is at Sephora, so you can try it.

      The order to do things is:

      1- remove eye makeup
      2- cleans skin
      3- toner (IF you choose to use one… it’s not necessary)
      4- moisturize

      The last step is very important. You might think that using a moisturizer will break you out, but that’s not true. You break out because your skin does not have enough natural moisture, so it over-produces oil to make up for the lack of moisture…. this is when you break out! Does this make sense?

      Don’t use Stridex or Oxy. There is alcohol in them which will dry your skin out and produce MORE oil, leading you to more pimples, and causing you to continue using their products.

      If you have a Sephora near you, go in there an ask for their skincare expert. He or she will help you and give you samples of things to try, if you want.

      If you don’t have a Sephora near you, you can always call their 800# and talk to a skincare expert over the phone.

      Tips for healthy skin:
      – Don’t smoke
      – Drink plenty of water
      – Wash your face every night before bed & follow w/ moisturizer
      – Find products that work for you. Different things work for different people, so it may require some experimenting on your end.

      Best of luck!

  12. QUESTION:
    Best acne face wash for large pores and closed comedones?
    I have large pores and soft closed comedones … which are tiny little bumps I get all over my cheeks. and once in awhile I get hard closed comedones around my eyes and forehead. I would say my face is a combination skin type. As of right now, I use St. Ives face exfoliating scrub mixed with pro-active. pro-active doesn’t do a thing for me. So, what would be the best face wash for me to use??? I really want my pores to get a deep deep cleaning.

    Please help! anyone that has this type of acne besides me :(

    • ANSWER:
      OMG! I have this too! I have tried Proactiv too, and it does not do a thing for me, either.

      The St. Ives probably is not the best to use, sorry. It’s grains are way too coarse, and can cause tiny tears that will let bacteria in. Stop using the St. Ives.

      I would recommend trying Apple Cider Vinegar. I have been using it for about a week now and id helps a bit. The best thing for me though is to not wear makeup- and if I have to leave my house at all, THAT”S NOT GOING TO HAPPEN!

      Anyways, try the ACV. It does stink, but it seems to work alright.

  13. QUESTION:
    What’s the Best Acne Face Wash and Moisturizer, Not too expensive?
    Also for sensitive skin? I have mild breakouts on my forehead and chin. Does Cetaphil or Clean and Clear work? THANK YOU!

    • ANSWER:
      I have sensitive skin as well. I haven’t tried Clear and Clear yet but I have tried Neutrogena. Neutrogena really does work for sensitive skin. If you are willing to get skiniD I would (except that it will stain your towels and bedding), but it is kind of expensive. Their over-the-counter products work pretty well too though. I have been using their Oil Free Acne Wash Cream Cleanser for about 2 months and the results are good.
      It usually takes about 3 months for your skin to allow the face wash to get rid of acne though, so make sure you let the product have time to work.

  14. QUESTION:
    what’s the best acne face wash out there besides proactiv?

      If you want what’s best for your skin how about something simple and easy and cheap and clinically proven to be effective…honey, baking soda, oats and coconut oil. This combination kills germs, exfoliates, soothes inflammation from pollution and irritants and moisturizes.

    whats the best acne face product to use for a reasonable price?
    I am a 20 year old who has acne and it has caused problems in my dating and work life I have it on the upper part of my forehead and on the sides of my neck I tried proactiv but that just dried my skin out what product out there that i can get for a reasonable price like at walmart or CVS pharmacy can I get

    • ANSWER:
      I used to have bad acne when I was a teenager, and still have it from time to time.
      What I’ve found that works great as a short term fix is just regular Dove bar soap. It seemed to work for me for a bit, and then it seemed that my skin got used to it, and it didn’t work anymore. So I would suggest using it until it quits working, then try something else, and go back to it a month or so later.

      As far as products SPECIFICALLY for acne: I’ve tried the whole Pro-Active thing, and it didn’t seem to work at ALL for me, but the Walmart brand (Used to be called Pro-Acne, but now I think it’s Acne-Free) seems to work much much better at a lower price.
      Good luck!

      proactive is the best out there. but if you look the main ingredient in proactive is the same main active ingredient in dandriff shampoo. so if you cant get proactive for one reason or another just get some dandruff shampoo and wash your face with that (just shampoo not 2 in 1) me and my husband have been using it since we were 16 and havnt broke since, unless we dont use it.

    best face wash or cream to cure acne for under 10 dollars?
    what is the best acne facewash or cream for under 10 dollars

    • ANSWER:
      You are just looking at the outside what you see. You need to take care of your inside, what you don’t see. I would start drinking lots of water. Also lemon water. You can do this hot or cold. Add two tablespoons of lemon to water. You may want to add just a Little bit of sugar (I add honey to hot water) to sweeten it, but anyway drink like 3 times a day. This will flush your body of toxins. As far as face wash, you will just have to experiment. Go to Walgreen’s cosmetic counter and ask for samples. They have lots from the makers of all kinds of wash/creams. You will just have to find which one works best for you. But I would try the lemon water first. Best of luck. I use just plain Dove bar soap. That is what my Dermatologist recommended. Then I use Oil of Olay for sensitive skin. Love it!

  28. QUESTION:
    What is the best otc face cleanser on the market for acne?
    What is the best face cleanser for acne on the market? Clean and Clear, Neutrogena, Nioxin…..??

    • ANSWER:
      Ive tried many products (i used to have breakouts almost daily 2 years ago). I even went to the dermatologist and she recommended me to try pro-activ .. i tried it and it only made my acne worse! So she told me to try a cheaper similar version… Acne-free and if that didnt work we would talk prescriptions.

      Acne-Free’s three step process works fairly well and runs about 20 bucks at the local wal-mart,meijer,target etc. My skin reacts better to Acne-free’s benzoyl-peroxide rather than most OTC products salicylic acid.

      Acne free comes in a regular and a severe formula… I prefer to use the Severe formula because when i do get a breakout i know it will be gone within a day or two.

      Both come with a face wash,a toner, and a repair lotion with time released benzoyl peroxide. And usually come with some sort of freebie like Acne scar removal lotion etc.

      If i dont have the time to do the three steps, wash,tone,and repair lotion… I use clean & clears persa gel (10% benzoyl peroxide).
      It seriously will clear up a pimple in no time. While its intended as a spot treatment i also use it as a preventitive.

      A good ph-balancing soap to use is PHisoderm. It may leave skin feeling a little tender and red (depending on how sensitve your skin is) But it is a good face soap ! I have a better time using that then neutrogena’s face washes.

      My face is virtually clear, but i still get breakouts every now and then but the benzoyl peroxide clears it up.

      Any spot treatment containing benzoyl peroxide works! Clearasil, Clean & Clear and Oxy all make spot treatments that are 10%.

    I do use nivea i just need something for acne.

    • ANSWER:
      I had really dry skin on my face.
      Don’t use moisturizers that have acne cleanser in them because that tends to make your skin even more dry.

      For a face wash use Clean and Clear daily face wash once a day in the shower.

      then for a moisturizer use Cetaphil daily facial moisturizer.

      Once I started using the Cetaphil moisturizer my skin was perfect. Not dry at all.

      Hope this helps because It helped me more than ever, I will not use any other moisturizer ever again!!

DAB DRY YOUR FACE. if you dont you will rub all that oil around on your face instead of lifting it off your face.!! hope that this helps!! just do this for like a couple days and all if the oil will leave. then you can just use the cetaphil every day to keep the oil away!

  44. QUESTION:
    What is the best face wash for people without bad acne?
    I have oily skin and not bad acne. whats the best line, wash, or brand.

    • ANSWER:
      try anything with benzoyl peroxide or sulphur. i have the same skin type, and my skin stays clear with a few things:

      1. Birth control, to balance the horemones
      2. Not eating too much junk and taking lots of omega amino acids to dilute the sebum in the skin and keeps it from clogging pores
      3. I always use a makeup remover (neutragena oil free) in addition to my face wash, also neutrogena. (just look for any brand that doesn’t have oils and says it’s noncomedogenic)
      4. every other day i use a benzoyl peroxide cream before bed, on a clean face and as well as a sulphur facial mask. (I love DDF from Sephora)
      5. Once in a while I rub olive oil on my face. some people say it makes them break out, but i have not noticed it on me…it just makes it super moistuized the next day and glowing.

      I have to say, to number one reason I find I break out is when I don’t wash my makeup off before I go to bed.

  45. QUESTION:
    What is the best face wash for bad acne?
    I am 16 years old and I have bad acne. It seems like I always have pimples all over my face no matter what I do. I went to the doctor and he gave me some cream to take every night and pills to take twice everyday. It helped but not completely.
    Im going to try a different face wash. I have tried some different ones but they don’t help much. What is the best to use?

    • ANSWER:
      i had the exact same problems as you have.

      first i got cream from the doctor, but it didn’t help.
      next i got pills that i had to take twice a day—which i
      recently stopped taking because it made my stomach
      upset.

      just about this time i started using Cetaphil. It’s helped immensely.
      my skin looks the best it’s had since 6th grade!

      one warning is that it does dry your skin out (one reason it helps so well) i would recommend using a moisturizer daily along with the wash.

      goodluck!

  50. QUESTION:
    What is the best face wash for acne, oily, and dry skin?
    I want a cleanser that can treat all of that.
    Thanks so much! :)
    FOR PEOPLE THAT ANSWERED:
    How long does all of the stuff that you recommended last?

    • ANSWER:
      I would definitely definitely reccomend DESERT ESSENCE THOROUGHLY CLEAN FACIAL CLEANSER. You can purchase it at health food stores like Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s, Henry’s or online at Iherb.com. It is 100% vegan and contains organic ingredients and is all natural. When you have acne and combination skin harsh cleansers and facial products can aggravate it and throw the balance off which makes things worse. This product has a very silky texture and removes even the most heavy duty makeup. It’s natural and gentle.

      I have a youtube chanel where I reviewed the product. (www.youtube.com/moneyandmakeup) Just find the video and you can see what it looks like.

      Also, it is very inexpensive. It runs for about 6 to 7 bucks in stores. If you want to get it for almost free you can go to www.IHerb.com and search for it. Then when you get to check out you can enter the code LIK077 for .00.. I believe it’s .78 on there and if you go to the top of the page and click on “free products” you can select free stuff you want them to include in your package. It really is free.

      Well hope that helps! Check out my youtube vids!

      P.S The 8.oz bottle lasts a really long time. I’d say about 2 months. they also offer a 32 oz bottle on IHerb.com for .99!! That one lasts for like a year!!

Best For Acne 2009

Acne has become a very common problem for most people across the globe. This is the reason that the market is flooded with a number of products claiming to treat acne. However, lack of knowledge among people usually ends up in purchasing a wrong product. This worsens the problem and another product takes place. People change too many products too often and get disappointed when there is no result. Choosing a wrong product may even result in side effects.

The best way to treat acne is to educate yourself about the kind of products available on the market, the ingredients present in them, their functions and last but not the least which product will best suit your skin type.

Here are some of the most common acne treatments available on the market for use:

a) Proactiv

This medication can be easily obtained without prescription. It provides good results. The medication contains benozyl peroxide that is regarded as a boon for treating acne.

b) Accutane

It is an effective drug to deal with severe forms of acne. However, this drug should be taken with care as it causes several side effects such as problems in liver and the pregnancy period.

  4. QUESTION:
    What’s the best way to use the Duac Topical Gel Kit with the SFC Lotion?
    My doctor just prescribed me the Duac Kit and I picked it up today. I haven’t used it yet, because I’m still unsure on what is the best way to use it. I’ve been on the Clinique 3-Step System for over a year now too. It says to use the Duac Gel once a day, but on my CVS Package it say “Apply Twice To Area Daily”? So should I use it in the morning AND night then? It also says to keep the Duac in a cold place like the refridgerator. Does it work better this way? & How do I use it with the SFC lotion? Do it use the cleansing lotion FIRST or after? & Do I use it like a cleanser, or just put it on & don’t rinse it off? And should I still use my Clinique Cleanser at least? The info about the Duac said to not use any medicated cleansers, so I’m thinking that I probably shouldnt.

    Uhm, that’s a lot of info so here’s a brief summary of my questions:

    Do I keep using my Clinique cleanser?
    Do I keep the Duac Gel in the refrigerator?
    What do I use first, the SFC Lotion or the Duac?
    Do I use the SFC Lotion with water & cleanse, or do I just apply it? (I think you can do either, but which one is more effective? I have really oily skin & in the winter my cheeks get pretty dry too)
    Do I use it JUST at night, or MORNING&NIGHT?

    If anyone can help me out, I’d really appreciate it! I’ve been suffering from acne for about 3-4 years now & I’ve tried A LOT of different things. My skin started clearing up Summer 2009, it got REALLY clear compared to my usual. & then towards September, I started breaking out a lot. Now my skin is the worst that it’s EVER been so I’m really hoping the Duac works! Especially since it was so expensive.

    • ANSWER:
      I also use this product. It’s recommended that you wash your face in the morning, wait for it to be dry, and then put a small amount on your face (pea sized). Then I believe you’re supposed to wash it off at night. I’m 99% sure you don’t need to refrigerate it (I just checked the website). As far as the lotion goes, I just put it on in the middle of the day. Don’t take my word on the lotion part because I’m unsure about that too. I’m positive though that you’re supposed to wash your face in the morning, wait for it to be dry, then apply the gel (only once a day). It helps. I’ve been using it for about 6 months now and my skin is almost completely clear.

  5. QUESTION:
    What do I do about my skin after accutane?
    I started accutane in late August 2008 and was on it until February 2009. I never had really terrible acne, but it was persistent and I’d had it since I was 9 years old. Those six months were the best months of my life and my acne completely cleared, my blackheads were gone, my skin was completely void of excess oil and my back and chest acne went away completely!

    I’ve been off accutane for about 5 weeks now and my skin as starting to go back to the way it was. I’m really nervous that all the progress my skin made in those six months is going to be undone after just a few short weeks.

    My question is: will a second round of accutane permenantly change my skin to the oil-free, clear skin it was when I’m on the drug? How long after you stop accutane can you go back on it and how long do dermatologists usually wait to put their patients back on it?

    Thank you.
    PLEASE do not bring proactiv into this. Anyone who’s ever taken accutane knows that proactiv is a scam.

    I don’t know I feel like I’ve exhausted all of my options. I’ve been on every cycle of antibiotics known to man…
    I’m allergic to benzyl peroxide

    • ANSWER:
      Accutane is typically prescribed to treat the nodular acne or acne that has not been treated by other prescriptions. You may be breaking out again, but you probably will not see the intense nodular acne if you had it before. However, if you are seeing acne like this and it is escalating to the way it was prior to your Accutane treatment, your best bet is to make an appointment with your dermatologist.
      At that point they will probably give you two options. The first will be a typical antibiotic and possibly a topical cream. This seems more likely to be the case at this point. There is a chance the antibiotics will be more effective after the Accutane treatment. The second choice will be another treatment with Accutane. The risks really are just the same as they were for the first treatment, but I feel like the fact that you very recently stopped using it will result in antibiotic/topical cream. The possibility exists that the antibiotics/topical cream will not work again, so you might end up on Accutane again down the road.

      Your best bet until that point is to locate a facial wash with Benzyl Peroxide. It tends to work better than washes with Salicylic acid products, and in fact some topical cream prescriptions utilize heavier concentrations of Benzyl Peroxide, so it is definitely a solid choice until you see what your dermatologist says.

  6. QUESTION:
    can someone answer this question for me please?
    ok i was prescribed retin a micro gel in december of 2009 and i started using when i got it and then about 3 weeks in i stopped because you hear about all of these medications that can cause health issues and i got scared and then i was talking to some people and they were telling me that retin a is fine and it is the best thing to get rid of acne so i started back for about another 2 weeks and then i stopped again(i am crazy in the head i know this)and it’s been about a month and weeks since i last used it and i want to start back but this time in all honesty stay with it because these black heads are devastating on my face and i was wondering is it even safe to start back using it again.ok thanks

    • ANSWER:
      there are two ways when it comes down to acne:
      1) time… as you age it will go by itself… specially after having kids… like in my case
      2) pills… i mean medications that you take by mouth… no creme will solve the problem from its roots…

  7. QUESTION:
    Any brides have any tips for looking good in your wedding dress?
    I’m getting married in July 2009 and I really want to look my best. I think I need to lose a few pounds. I’m just wondering if any REAL brides could share some insight on how they managed to look their best. I’m 5’9 and weigh 165 pounds. I have problems with acne and under eye circles. Plus, I have a large neck and face so it makes me look like I have an even bigger double chin than I already do. Ugh. I’m an hour glass shape too, very large breasts. Help!!!!
    It seems like people are in agreement that I should lose weight. How much do you think I should lose?

    • ANSWER:
      Work on your skin first. I had bad acne and a facial specialist turned me to Ivory bar soap and a mild moisturizer. I used it until my face was clear and balanced (two months or so). I think switched to Aveeno Radiant Cleanser b/c it travels easier. A big mistake that most people have about their skin is they try to use everything to fix the acne when really they just need to use one thing that is non-fragrant and ph balanced. Ivory soap is both.

      Then get on a workout plan that best suites your interests. Don’t torture yourself with long workouts if you don’t enjoy them. Workouts don’t work unless you pair them with a healthy eating plan. I don’t mean less food… I mean more of the right foods and less of the bad ones. Even if the pounds don’t come off fast you will still feel more positive and less stressed during your planning.

      Most importantly BE CONFIDENT on your wedding day. Hold your head up, show those pretty teeth and stand up straight. It is your day! You are the princess you have always wanted to be for that one day. So show it. Nothing is going to go perfect but mishaps just make the day more adventurous. ENJOY! and SMILE!!!!!

  8. QUESTION:
    I’m becoming suicidal again….please help me?
    NOTE:If you’re HERE TO HATE or make sarcastic jokes..just go troll on a different question…
    This is probably going to be long..but if you still decide to take the time to FULLY read this…then Thank You! You really don’t know how much I appreciate it..but where do I really start?

    I’ve been depressed since 2009..as far back as I can remember. I’ve had one or two occasions before this where I was suicidal,and I attempted suicide once,but luckily, I didn’t do it. I’ve been depressed for SO many things. One being school, I was constantly bullied and everybody made fun of me. No one in my family understood me,nobody even CARED. My mom finally took me out of school and homeschooled me,hence what I’m doing now. But I have a few memories that will never fade. So many kids made fun of me,and daily as well. I cut myself once,but gave that up,because it was stupid..and I still don’t understand the concept of it anyways. But there’s a lot of other things that have caused me to be depressed, I won’t go into every single one of them,but I lost my best friend five years ago in a terrible accident. I still go back and look at his pictures,and listen to songs that he liked,and it just kills me..I want him back so bad, I can taste it. I to this day can not believe that he’s gone,he’s the only one that would understand my situations…I just imagine him pulling up to my house and taking me out to eat,or play games,to cheer me up…but I know that day will never come again. I just cry after everybody’s asleep,and last night, I cried myself to sleep…not knowing what to do with myself. The internet is my last resort..I literally wanted to die last night, I didn’t care about anything. Or anyone but my best friend.
    I know suicide is selfish,but it’s just extremely complex to get past anything any more. My family doesn’t care,some of them DO know,but that’s like only two people who know. I can’t tell anyone else in my family because I don’t know how they’ll react,and I wouldn’t even know what to say..and I know, I know you’re thinking I should just ‘tell them’..but no,that’s not an option. They would just send me to a counselor again,and I do not do counselors, I have my reasons to…so please don’t suggest it. I can’t take medication,and I can’t talk to the people who do understand. The situation is very hard to fully explain. My mom knows I’m depressed,or she might not. When we talk about being lazy,cleaning the house,why I stay in my room every day,etc. She brings up:”Addison,it’s because you’re depressed.” But she doesn’t ever listen to herself,she never thinks about it. It is true, I sit in my room every single day,but the internet is all I have nowadays. I can’t get a job, I can’t get a car, I can’t get a boyfriend..and it kills me to know that I’ll probably always be alone. I’ve also had severe acne for five years…and that is still bugging me. I never look in the mirror anymore and think that I’m beautiful..it’s just impossible for me. I’m fat,have no talent,and don’t feel intelligent..whatsoever.
    I just can’t stand my life. I appreciate all the things I DO have,but I still have a shitty life,and that I can garuntee to anybody. I live in a small town with nothing to do,literally,and yet my mom complains to me that all I do is ‘sit on the computer’,but she doesn’t understand. Nobody does. I don’t talk to my dad,nor do I ever see him, I haven’t seen him for three years,but I don’t choose to see him..but I don’t worry about it. I feel like I have no one. I have friends,but they’re only online..which makes me feel like more of a loser. I can’t sleep at night,nor can I think straight…all I think about is death. I wonder what life would be like if I was gone, I’m planning on asking my step-uncle what he would do if I died..but honestly,do you think I should? We don’t have a good relationship..but I just want to see his reaction.
    That’s not even half of it..but I’m sorry this was so long. THANK YOU!
    ALSO:I wanted to mention this earlier,but my mom and I constantly fight. She abuses me verbally and is very very rude. She is always in a bad mood and always threatens me with things. She accuses me of looking up porn,talking to dangerous people on the internet,etc. She doesn’t understand how I feel,nor will she ever. She isn’t supportive and all she cares about,is how her house looks,but that’s really it. She gets mad at me for so many things..and I feel like if I died tonight,she wouldn’t care. She never tells me that she loves me…even if I tell it to her first..
    WOW…I just came back to read the answers..and I want you ALL to know…that I love each and every one of you. I know that’s weird to say,but Thank You all for taking the time to read this. I truly do appreciate it,especially you Mumblz, Thank YOU. You are amazing! ♥

    • ANSWER:
      The truth is, there is nothing anyone can tell you that will make you stop being suicidal.
      The best one can do for you is to give you some tips to help you find what you need within yourself…

      But , for shoots n googles…

      ” No one in my family understood me,nobody even CARED”
      You have to care about yourself, and other people will naturally care about you. Seriously. I learned after high school to stop really caring about other peoples feelings toward me. I learned to love myself and DIFFERENT and BETTER people naturally gravitated toward me and those people are who I care about and who care about me as well.

      “My mom finally took me out of school and homeschooled me,hence what I’m doing now.”
      Removing yourself from society is most definitely not the answer. You will close yourself off and become more introverted which will inevitably make the situation worse.

      Find people who are willing to speak with you about anything BESIDES the negative things in your life, and you will find that the issues you face are not as world-dominating as you think.

      *EDIT*: That isn’t to say you shouldn’t express your negative feelings. You most definitely should! But you musn’t dwell on the negative because it will eat you from the inside out.

      Surely there are people who love you and who are willing to help see you through this!

      I love you for being a human with feelings, as it seems so many people cut themselves off from their feelings to avoid going through what you are going through right now.

      Be strong. Explore these feelings. Find a way through.

  9. QUESTION:
    I know how this must sound but…I am 28. Was thin, active, outgoing. Now I’m over weight and lazy.?
    I was in the Air Force. I was happy and active and sociable. I was an Air Traffic Controller. I got out in 2005 had a baby and married the man of my dreams. I confided in my husband some horrible things that had happened to me as a small child from two of my own family members. He was very upset and demanded that I say something to the one person still living. This man still living was 6 years older than me, now married and had a daughter of his own. My husband said I could be preventing something from happening to her. I knew I would not be able to live with myself if that happened and I never said anything because of my own fears. He had also done similar things to 3 of my cousins but only went to the same extreme with one as he did with me. This is all coming about many years later. I was nine when this nightmare happened, and age 2-7 when I was at daily mercy of my grandfather. My daughter looks so much like me that when I look at her sometimes I just break down into an uncontrollable cry and anger. My love for her is so strong and I see myself in her and i can’t imagine how someone could have done those horrific things to me. I came out with it to my mom first, she is the person that I direct most of the blame and anger towards since almost my who childhood she was either addicted to meth or gone out of state with her live in boyfriend. She said it would be best to tell him mom (my moms sister) first that I am requesting an apology at the least for the things I went through. To make a long story short, he denied it and my family turned against me. They say they believed me but this was selfish of me because it happened so long ago and there was nothing that could change the past and I was just trying to tear our family apart. I was no longer invited to Thanksgiving or Christmas dinners. My mom even took their side. My cousins that had experience this as well as a child came to me and cried, calling me brave and confinded in me very personal details, but begged me not to say anything because they didn’t want what happened to me to happen to them. I never did. I just tried to go on and make my husband and my children my world. 3 years later I had my second child. Things were great until Nov. 2009. My nightmare began. I got a call from my husbands ex wife where she informed me she had sexual relations with my husband when i was 8 months pregnant with our son. I felt the worst betrayl ever. Here I have been disowned by my family and wishing I had never listening to him because it hurt worse than keeping it inside. Then here he is being a fake and getting me all to myself feeling like he is the only person I have. When actually he is hurting me so much worse. I love him and it has caused so much anger, distrust, and resentment. But, I want more than anything to make marriage work. I know he loves me. I believe many men cheat for satisfaction reasons and not emotional (generally, not always). My mom and I have reconsiled. She is living with me now because she has shot her credit, doesn’t have a DL. My husband and I are back together after a 9 month seperation. My husband has been very loving and truley remorseful for breaking his vowels. I have every reason to be happy it seems. BUT I am angry all the time. I am hateful. I cry for no reason. I eat all the time and then hate myself it. I have horrible acne from stress and aggression I guess. I am so unhappy with my weight but all I think about is food and the couch. I wont let my kids go to the mailbox if i seen in a 100 mile radius in the last 30 days ( a lil exagerated). I have no desire to hang out with friends or kiss my husband. I hug and kiss my kids all the time. I just can’t seem to relax and enjoy anything. I’m alway on the defense and I tend to get in fist fights a lot with girls for stupid reasons. I take meds. plenty of RX from a good psych doctor. But that only helps to knock off the edge. And they make me hungry and I eat any and everything anytime, hungry or not. Then my depression is set in. I’m just a hopeless waste that is damaged good. damaged and just exsisting.

    • ANSWER:

  10. QUESTION:
    For all of you lovely fellow TTC ladies out there…a question?
    After exhausting all other options, then finding out he’s azoospermatic, and then insurance taking away our infertility coverage….we are excited and nervous to begin using the option of a known donor!
    I cannot wait to get that BFP I have been waiting for years to see!

    But of course, we all know it isn’t always that easy.
    For a while, even before actively TTC, there has been a nagging little suspicion in the back of my head that I might not be able to have children. I’ve always loved kids, and worked with them most of my life. I’ve also always had pretty bad luck, and figured as a teenager it would be “just my luck” to be infertile. I was never really trying to get pregnant (didn’t even know about charting fertility…and I would hope no teen does!), but after being pretty stupid many times (forgetting to take my pill, having a condom
    break, or not using one at all), and luckily never becoming a statistic…there came a worry when I was older: is anyone really that lucky?

    My periods were never 100% stable unless I was on the pill. But the shock came in 2009 when I was three months late, had all the symptoms of being pregnant (we were excited!)…and it turned out to be thyroid cancer. The next year and a half, I had my period maybe 6-7 times.
    A year ago, since I always struggle with weight and get adult acne, the dreaded PCOS was suggested by a doctor. That, luckily, was proven to not be true by a blood test.

    Anyway…I did have an HSG test done. They had given me the provera, forced on a period, and tested me for interior issues. Everything seemed to check out well, and I was told (and shown) that I do have eggs.
    I have also turned up positives two months in a row on ovulation predictor tests.

    Has anyone else here had a similar history of any sort, and once things were actually in line (ovulating, regulated periods, timed properly, and very fertile sperm), gotten pregnant with ease?

    I’m doing my best to think positive and not stress.

    • ANSWER:
      I don’t have similar history I just want to recommend fertilaid for you and your husband. Fertilaid for women helps regulate your cycles and helps you get pregnant. My husband has a low sperm count our sixth year of tryn with no luck I became pregnant our 1st month of tryn fertilaid but three days after finding out I lost my precious gift. This product has help many couples trying to get pregnant. I wish you the best and hope you get your precious gift. Sending lots of baby dust to ya.

  11. QUESTION:
    OK i’m really not satisfied with any of the answers I got, so ONCE AGAIN, can I afford these?
    Ok. So, I’m really not into the answers i got from my last question. So, if any of you penny pinching cheapos are going to answer my question, I want you to start it off by openly admitting to everyone that you are a CHEAP SCAPE. Put it in caps before your answer.

    So, here is my money. I have have 10,000 in my savings. (i forgot i have 2,000 in another account) I have like 300 in my checking, and 150 cash in my wallet.

    I live on a school campus. I will need to pay my school bill of 5,000 soon, plus my credit card bill of 1,000 (books) My car might need a new O2 censor, and i have a 100 dollar fine to pay.

    For income, I make about bi weekly for my first job, and roughly 0 bi weekly for my other job. On top of that , for every 1 day that I work (2 or 3 days/week) I will probably make about dollars under the table cash in bonuses. OH also, I have 280 waiting to be deposited into my checking account because I sold that many text books on half.com

    These are things that I want to buy:

    1. headphones, probably for like 150 or so. I have a best buy coupon for 20 dollars off, so I want to get them from bestbuy.
    Headphone Comments: for those penny pinchers who say “why would you spend that much on headphones, I got mine for 10 dollars and they are perfectly fine) or (you don’t need an iphone for your music, why don’t you just listen to music on youtube?) WELL. music on youtube is not as high quality as an MP3. Plus, your 10 dollar headphones don’t sound as good as the 150 dollar ones with the good magnets, 50 level bass, comfortable over the ear fit – etc. Once again, i’m not looking for “adequate that will do” type of things here, I like nice things. What’s the point of saving money when you can’t spend it on things that you want? Would i be happier with my money sitting in my account? no not really, i’d like my nice headphones thank you.

    2. I want the crystalift microdermabrasion machine for 0. I already have an acnelamp which costed 250. It made my acne go away Sooooo well! i love the results. Now, i want something for the scarring. Microdermabrasion from the clinic is sooo expensive, Laser resurfacing is out of the question but this home microdermabrasion machine would be perfect if it works!!

    3. I probably won’t even get this, but I have an american express card and every year they have this thing where they have deals for the card holders. They had a brand new 2009 BMW 328i for 17,000!!! Tomorrow, the deal is a 26′ Sharp LCD tv for 0. I’m going to try for it, so if i get it i’m totally going to be paying only 300 dollars for that 500 dollar tv!

    SO, now for all the others who say that I need to stock money for emergencies…blabla Ok. I’m only 20, my parents still support me pretty much… my phone bill is paid for, my dad bought my car for me, I’m on their health insurance, etc. I’m not going to become unemployed because i’ve been with the company for so long and their even making money this year. I can’t think of any other emergencies.
    Plus, i’m taking 18 credits and i’m a student living on campus. no students have “emergency” funds, let alone the amount of money that i have.
    SO remember, i like nice things so don’t tell me I dont “need” something or I should buy something that costs less because that’s dumb. I pretty much think i can afford it ps..

  12. QUESTION:
    EPIDEMIC OF SWINE INFLUENZA CAN BE PREVENTED BY THE SELF-HEMOTERAPY?
    Epidemic of swine influenza can be prevented by the self-hemotherapy

    In times of crisis, and in particular that we are living now, all possible resources to mitigate the effects of the crisis must be sought and evaluated.

    Since 2004, the Brazilians are aware of the therapeutic procedure in the very old and traditional medical and veterinary, known as self-hemotherapy from a video circulated on the Internet through You Tube, containing an interview with Dr. Luiz Moura, resident doctor in Rio de Janeiro.

    Subsequently the procedure was banned by ANVISA in 2007, which fortunately did not prevent many people who continue using the procedure in the treatment and prevention of many diseases such as acne, arthritis, asthma, amidalite, gout, influenza and even several diseases auto-immune. After the ban, the patients who were using the self-hemotherapy were mobilized in their defense and have signed a petition addressed to the President of the Republic, requesting the release of the practice claiming that it is a therapeutic procedure with no known risk to the patient and extremely effective in the prevention of diseases in general, since it is a nonspecific vaccine, capable of strengthening the immune system against various diseases, including influenza, caused by different types of viruses.

    As the world lives in a climate of panic because the risk of swine flu appeared in Mexico in abril/2009, becoming a global pandemic like the Spanish flu of 1918, which some estimates reached 50 million deaths, or the Asian flu 1968, our duty to re consider the question of the use of self-hemotherapy in Brazil. The Spanish flu came to Brazil in October 1918 and remained for several weeks, until the end of November, but it was enough to kill at least 35 thousand people, mostly in Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo. According to scholars and medical specialists worldwide, a new influenza pandemic occurs more or less every 40 years and was last recorded in 1968, influenza in Hong Kong or Asia, where it is estimated that killed some 4 million people in the world. So 1918 + 50 = 1968 + 40 = 2008. Influenza was late, but arrived. Not by chance the World Health Organization (WHO) with the assistance of experts from around the world is pointing since the end of the 90s about the threat of an influenza pandemic in this new century. It is believed that, despite the current resources in the medical field and in the best condition of health of the global population, the ease of transport and the huge mass of people to move to each corner of the world each day will be able to spread the virus to all continents in only 4 days.

    Taking into account that the application of preventive injection of the patient’s own blood, taken from the vein and apply the muscle has the property of strengthening the reticule-endothelial system (immune system) as it stimulates the body to increase the number of macrophages in the blood from 5% to 22% in 8 hours after application, maintaining that level for 5 days, is extremely useful, given the epidemic of swine flu, the application of the vaccine, not only for Brazilians who will travel to Mexico, but also to Mexicans have not yet hit by flu, which already has the mortality rate of 6%, demonstrating that this is really an epidemic of great gravity.

    If the epidemic spread to other countries, which seems inevitable as the daily traffic of persons from Mexico and the disease continues to have an incubation period of 3 to 7 days, just a passenger contaminated by viruses, into a country to create conditions for transmission of the virus to others and so on. Is provided only as a vaccine specific for this strain of influenza in swine in about 6 months, by then the epidemic will have produced a disaster of major proportions.

    Moreover we know that the influenza virus, the cause of influenza, because of their constant mutability, requires the production of new medicines. Even the vaccine, an important innovation emerged in the mid 90s, could have reduced efficacy in terms of the characteristic of the disease to submit to each winter with a new look.

    As this is an emergency, we believe the prudent application of the injection of blood from the patient’s own vein (5 ml.), With an interval of 5 days to maintain the body with the index of macrophages in blood around 22% especially if the epidemic really is installed and remain for a long time.

    Obviously we can not ignore also the food, which must be of good quality, including vegetables, legumes and fruits, especially citrus and those with large amounts of vitamin C, such as cherry, kiwi, cashew, etc.. Clearly, in the case of an epidemic, we must also avoid agglomerations, indoors, cinemas, theaters, etc., using surgical masks for protection, and goggles to protect eyes, can also absorb the virus.

    And there are no contra-indications for the procedure of self-hemotherapy believe a humanitarian issue, before the current

    Honestly, Is this an okay story?
    Its for English class for a completely random story prompt So I chose to write about a nerd who can’t get a date and epically fails every time he tries. It’s supposed to be at least a little bit humorous But I’m not exactly sure. Feedback please! :D

    I am Sheldon Mackenzie Longbottom, I am a nerd, a bachelor, and sometimes deemed a creeper. My hobbies consist of playing video games like; Halo 1, 2, and 3, World Of Warcraft, Oblivion, Runescape, and getting my greasy hands on all of the Naruto and Bleach games I can find available. I also write a fan fiction on Desperate House Wife’s weekly about Gabrielle A.K.A Eva Longoria , my guilty pleasure. This leads to most of my time being spent indoors ,which makes me pale and my freckles and zits pop out. I have very curly shoulder length hair that I normally keep in a ponytail with a cowlick by my ear. And I have one thing in common with you, I want babes.
    Normally the female population would be turned off by acne infested, ponytails , and short chubby men. But with that one special bodacious woman, it will turn her on like a bathroom faucet. And believe me when I say that ‘ babe catching’ is not my forte.

    Mistake # 1 , Corny Pick Up Lines.
    September 17th , 2009

    Dear Journal,
    Today is the first day of the rest of my life. I was walking down the school corridor with my lifetime partner in crime and best friend, Dawson. And then It hit me , the opportunity of a lifetime. Like a light at the end of a tunnel Running , Running, to reach it. Like getting your results on American Idol on Hollywood week walking down the long isle of stairs. Seeing all of the judges, especially Kara , yes, the hot one. But it was actually the most beautiful woman on earth. Taylor Terry. With her flowing long blond hair and her well rounded blue eyes. It’s quite probable that everyone here would slap a baby to marry her and make be the father of her children. Too bad she doesn’t even know I exist. But today was the first day of the rest of my life, because I was going to change that thanks to Google. I slowly left Dawson and pulled out the list of pick up lines that I printed off last night as I made my way to get to her. “ Hey Taylor,” I gulped and pulled the piece of paper up to my face so I could quickly choose a pick up line and pick one. “ Your eyes are like lasers, because they are absolutely stunning.” And then I was finally aware of what I have done in front of the entire school body and passed out. The weird thing was when I woke up in the nurse Alvarado’s office she and the principal were getting a little more intimate than I would appreciate seeing. I mean this is old people we are talking about here , its gross even thinking about that. Then I truly realized how invisible I really am. Even though I’m fat.
    So basically pick up lines equal a waste of time and very useful office space to Nurse Alvarado. Even the good ones will get you a back hand to the Face. So dear readers please indulge in another way of breaking the ice. Because pick up lines will only pick up your heart to be dropped and shattered into a million pieces.( either that or the falling of my fat body as I pass out cold.) But I must bid you anew because I have a quadruple Decker salami sandwich and ramen noodles calling my name.

    With Knowledge and Night elves,
    Sheldon Mackenzie Longbottom

      Ok, I loved the first paragraph. It was humorous, like you’d intended it to be. But the second paragraph was a bit of a “huh?” in some parts.

    I need a haircut and this is the freaking 10th time I’ve asked./:?
    OKAY. Here we go again..

    I have medium length hair. It’s about an inch or so past my shoulders. It is dark brown, and thick. It’s naturally curly, but I straighten it. I have tan skin as of this summer. I have a square or heart shaped face. My eyes are blue, but change between blue, green, and gray. I am 5’2. I am right under 130 pounds, but don’t look it. Here is me:

    http://www.flickr.com/photos/traceylyn11/4872863497/in/photostream/

    Sorry, they aren’t the best pictures. I’m having a hard time finding good pictures of me that show what my hair looks like..Also, my acne has cleared up, and I am tanner.

    My questions:
    -Would this hairstyle look okay on me? http://www.geldik.org/wp-content/uploads/2009/01/emo-hair.jpg I really want a choppy hairstyle, and that was the closest I have found to what I want.
    -Did the girl in the picture above tease her hair? I would rather not do anything to my hair except straighten it.
    -Do you have any haircut suggestions?
    -Should I get blonde highlights? If I do, will it change the color of my hair to a lighter brown?
    -When hair salon people “thin out” your hair, does it look weird growing back? How exactly do they thin it out? Is it recommended? Especially for the haircut I want?

    I know my hair is not long enough for it, that’s why I would not do the long thin strips going down her chest. I would have it stopped right as it as going thin..

    By the way, I do nothing to my hair. As in, the only products I use on it are shampoo and conditioner. I have only dyed it once before, and it has come out already. I straighten my hair, but other than that, I leave it alone. So I don’t want any haircuts that are time consuming (I only have a half hour or so to get ready in the mornings) and need a lot of work. I am also 14 and female.

    • ANSWER:
      That hairstyle should look fine on you.
      It looks as if the girl in the picture has used some sort of styling wax or mousse.
      Blonde highlights would look cool and they probably wouldnt change the colour of your hair to a lighter brown as they are blonde highlights so it would probably just go blonde.
      And when they thin your hair out it simply means they cut it so it’s not so thick and it is probably recommended for the hairstyle you want.

      Other hairstyles that would look nice are:
      Bob cut
      Full fringe
      Or side fringe.

  16. QUESTION:
    Would this haircut look good on me?

    I have dark brown hair. It’s very thick. I have blue eyes that change between blue, green, and grey. I’m 5’2. I weigh 130 pounds but do not look it. My hair is naturally curly, but I straighten it. I use no products and will not use any on my hair, except for shampoo and conditioner. I do not wear makeup, either. My face is heart or square shaped. I am tan as of this summer. My acne has cleared up. I’m 14. Female.

    I want a choppy, medium length haircut, and those two matched my idea the best. What do you think?
    By the way, would it pull back into a pony tail? Not the bangs, but the rest of the hair?

      I wouldn’t do it…. sorry.

Best For Acne

There are many different types of anti-acne solutions you can run across in drugstores, TV ads and online articles. They usually range from homemade remedies to prescription medications and the amount of things in-between is really huge. Acne is a rather common problem for teenagers and young adults, especially those who undergo serious hormonal changes, and it can seriously affect the social activity of a person because of the unpleasant looks associated with this condition. Acne breakouts are very discomforting especially when they take place in the facial area, so having an effective solution for this problem is very important.

There’s certainly a wide selection of anti-acne solutions available on the market. Ranging from topical cremes and gels to prescription medications and special procedures performed by dermatologists and cosmetologists there’s always something you can select and try to eliminate acne with. And many people always find specific solutions that suit them best. Still, in some cases when the acne is just too severe typical treatment options can be rather ineffective. This can have a depressing effect on the person trying to get rid of acne because seeing different solutions ineffective isn’t the most inspiring thing when it comes to treatment. However, there’s one final solution that can help you get rid of the most tricky forms of acne. It’s called Accutane.

Accutane is a prescription medication that can only be used under doctor supervision. It is strongly recommended that you do not try to take the drug on your own because it’s a very potent medication that can have serious side effects if used incorrectly. So if you’ve heard about the drug and already used other anti-acne solutions that didn’t provide any suitable results you should definitely discuss the possibility of using this medication with your doctor.

Accutane works by reducing the amount of oil produced by the oil glands in the skin. Normally oil is required to moisten and protect the skin from mechanical damage. However, when there’s too much oil produced it can clog the skin pores and cause inflammation. Many types of bacteria that dwell on our skin in normal amounts use oil as the source of energy. And when there’s an abundance of it the bacteria tends to multiply in numbers causing bacterial infections. When bacterial infection and clogged pores combine this results in severe inflammation that take the shape of acne breakouts. So the most obvious solution is to eliminate the excess of oil in the skin in order to prevent inflammation in the first place. And that’s exactly what Accutane is used for.

Ask your doctor whether you can use the drug and request a prescription if you really want to get rid of acne. This medication was confirmed to eliminate even the most severe forms of acne within a single or repeated course of use. The usual course lasts between 4 to 8 weeks and can be repeated after a couple of months to achieve better effects. So get your prescription and forget about acne once and for all!

    • ANSWER:
      The Best Answer For All Acne Problems

      Acne is an inflammatory disease of the skin, caused by changes in the pilosebaseous units (skin structures consisting of a hair follicle and its associated sebaceous gland). Acne usually appears during adolescence in its most common form known as “acne vulgaris”, which means common acne. The revolutionary Acnezine, the natural acne treatment product is out in the market to help you solve the never-ending problem of acne.

      Excessive secretion of oils from the glands combine with naturally occurring dead skin cells to block the hair follicles. Acne is caused due to excessive of oil in human body. Generally people those who eat a lot of oil foodstuff suffer from this problem. Due to Acne some parts of human body are affected. Some of them are face, arms etc. Oil secretions build up beneath the blocked pore, providing a perfect environment for the skin bacteria to multiply uncontrolled. In response, the skin inflames, producing the visible lesion (acne). Rashes are occurred on the body, face, chest, back and upper arms are especially affected by acne. The antioxidant element in Acnezine regulates the oil secretion putting an end to acne slowly and steadily.

      The typical lesions of acne are: small whitish or skin-colored bumps (whiteheads) or blackish elevations (blackheads). More inflamed rashes take the form of pus-filled or reddish bumps, even boil-like tender swellings. After resolution of the lesions, prominent unsightly acne scars may remain. Acnezine lightens up these scar marks and makes you feel fresh and comfortable.

      The acne condition is common in puberty as a result of an abnormal response to normal levels of the male hormone testosterone. Acne is occurred when the hormones are increased due to excess of oil in the body. There is however no way to predict how long acne will take to disappear completely or that it will ever recur again. But you can of course regulate the acne growth with Acnezine, the natural scientific treatment product for acne treatment.

      Acne affects a large percentage of humans at some stage in life. Aside from scarring its main effects are psychological, such as reduced self-esteem and depression.Continuous yoga exercises along with Acnezine treatment helps in a faster remedy. A series of five yoga poses can help increase blood flow to your face, flushing away toxins and providing nutrients to your skin. A daily routine of the following yoga poses are recommended: standing sun, knee squeeze, seated sun, baby and cobra.

      Acne should not be neglected and should be treated with great care and responsibility to ensure a healthy life.

  5. QUESTION:
    What is the best acne product you can buy without a prescription?
    What non prescription acne product will help get rid of my acne the best and keep it away? Life for example proactive, clean and clear, etc. like either in a kit or one product thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      The best acne treatment is a jug of water. I’m serious, you don’t need anything fancy like Fiji water. Just a big bottle of water. Keep it next to you all day and drink 2-3 liters everyday. This helps moisturize your skin and clears out junk from your bloodstream. This will help stop breakouts in the long term.

      In the short term, all you need is baking soda, aspirin and honey. Mix the baking soda with a bit of water and lightly massage your face then rinse off. Then crush up the aspirin tablets, mix with a little bit of water and massage onto your face. leave this on for 10-15 minutes and then rinse off. Finally, put some honey on your face and leave it on for 10-15 minutes.

      The combination of the above three will clean pores, dry up breakouts, prevent future breakouts and moisturize your skin. However this is only temporary because as your learn to drink more and more water everyday, your body will start to adjust internally. You’ll start having less cravings for junk food and your body will be able to deal with the inner problems that lead to acne in the first place.

      This means no more breakouts, ever.

  6. QUESTION:
    What is the best acne and pimple treatments?
    I get pimples and acne, but not huge breakout acne! What do you think is the best treatments for this? Nothing real expensive or are there any home remedys you know about? I would rather know about the treatments you can buy though…………………HELP!

    • ANSWER:
      Here’s a simple formula for keeping the acne away.
      1. Go Buy two face cleaners: 1 clearsil pads and 1 apricot scrub
      – Use clearsil pad to clean your face every morning and before bed. (Wash face with water, dry, use pad, don’t dry).
      – Apricot scrub. Use this at least once a week. Best to use every other day though. Easiest to use in shower. After use then use clearsil pad.
      2. Use rubbing alcohol for spot reduction. Dip Q tip in rubbing alcohol and apply to pimple before bed.
      3. Don’t cause scars: Don’t pick if you don’t have to.
      4. Keep your hair clean. Our hair has so much oil in it (even dry hair). Many people don’t realize that a lot of acne comes from hair. This means shower at least every other day.
      5. Keep your pillow case clean. Wash weekly. If you don’t have washer and dryer then wash in bathtub. It holds a lot of oil!
      6. If you are a female you can also buy some concelear. If you can afford it buy oil free concelear (like Physicians Formula). If not then buy 99 cent concelear (wet n wild brand is cheap). You can use this to cover up acne while in public and for some reason i think it helps to wear it.
      7. Drinks lots of water!!!

      If you can’t afford to buy acne products listed above there are home remedy formulas.
      Instead of clearsil pads apply rubbing alcohol with cloth.
      Instead of apricot scrub mix oil free soap with sugar (I used to keep a glass jar of sugar in my bathroom).

      If this doesn’t work you can ask your doctor to prescribe Benzol Peroxide (use it in place of the cleansing pads), it’s a bit stronger.

      You can’t get rid of scars until you’ve been acne free for 3 months. At this time you can start using scar meds. like Mederma.

      Tip: Hot water opens pores so you can clean them out. Cold water closes them.

      Tip: Don’t ever rub face dry with a towel. Either blot dry or let air dry. Towel particles clog up pores.

      Additional Information:
      If your skin gets dry after using products it probably means you have skin that’s on the dry side to begin with. Buy a moisturizer or facial lotion that is oil free and use after applying cleansing product (and before applying makeup if you use it).

      Hair is very oily. You should wash hair before bed to prevent this problem. And don’t condition the top of your hair, only from the nape of the neck down.

      REMEMBER: You have to use all steps for it to be effective.

      Hope this helps!

  7. QUESTION:
    What is the best acne treatment or product?
    What is the best acne treatment or product that clears skin fast and doesn’t dry skin. Tell me a product that you have used and it works for you. I have tried many acne creams but they usually dry my skin and create a rash, so my skin is sensitive. Please help me. Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      When your skin is dry, it produces MORE oil to combat the dryness, so that causes your pores to clog and makes you break out.

      During the day, use witchazel as a toner, and apple cider vinegar at night (because it stinks, but you’ll get used to it). They will clean your skin without drying it out.

      There is no magic potion to get rid of acne; You have to battle it from the inside and out:

      STOP eating and drinking foods with refined or artificial sugars, like high fructose corn syrup or aspartame/phenylalanine. Up your vitamin C, A and K. Do some exercise like dancing or yoga. Get a little sun everyday, like about 10 minutes. Drink more water.

      Many beauty products on the market have harmful chemicals in them; do your favorite beauty products contain any of these things?:

      * Mineral Oil, Paraffin & Petrolatum – Petroleum products coat the skin like plastic, clogging pores and creating a build-up of toxins, which in turn accumulate and can lead to dermatological issues, like slowing cellular development, which can cause you to show earlier signs of aging. Suspected cause of cancer & Disruptive of hormonal activity. By the way, when there’s an oil spill in the ocean, don’t they rush to clean it up – fast? Why put that stuff on your skin?

      * Parabens – Widely used as preservatives in the cosmetic industry (including moisturizers). An estimated 13,200 cosmetic and skin care products contain parabens. Studies implicate their connection with cancer. They have hormone-disrupting qualities – mimicking estrogen – and interfere with the body’s endocrine system.

      * Phenol carbolic acid– Found in many lotions and skin creams. Can cause circulatory collapse, paralysis, convulsions, coma and even death from respiratory failure.

      * Propylene glycol – Used as a moisturizer in cosmetics and as a carrier in fragrance oils. Shown to cause dermatitis, kidney or liver abnormalities, and may inhibit skin cell growth or cause skin irritation.

      * Acrylamide– Found in many hand and face creams. Linked to mammary tumors in lab research.

      * Sodium laurel or lauryl sulfate (SLS), also known as sodium laureth sulfate (SLES)– Found in car washes, engine degreasers, garage floor cleaners… and in over 90% of personal care products! SLS breaks down the skin’s moisture barrier, easily penetrates the skin, and allows other chemicals to easily penetrate. Combined with other chemicals, SLS becomes a “nitrosamine”, a potent class of carcinogen. It can also cause hair loss. SLES is sometimes disguised with the labeling “comes from coconut” or “coconut-derived

      * Toluene – Poison! Danger! Harmful or fatal if swallowed! Harmful if inhaled or absorbed through the skin. Made from petroleum or coal tar, and found in most synthetic fragrances. Chronic exposure linked to anemia, lowered blood cell count, liver or kidney damage, and may affect a developing fetus. Butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT) contains toluene. Other names may include benzoic and benzyl.

      * Dioxane– Found in compounds known as PEG, Polysorbates, Laureth, ethoxylated alcohols. Common in a wide range of personal care products. The compounds are usually contaminated with high concentrations of highly volatile 1,4-dioxane, easily absorbed through the skin. Dioxane’s carcinogenicity was first reported in 1965 and later confirmed in studies including one from the National Cancer Institute in 1978. Nasal passages and liver are the most vulnerable. Dioxane is easily removed during the manufacturing process by “vacuum stripping”.

      Warning: It is a synthetic derivative of coconut. Watch for hidden language on labels, such as “comes from coconut”.

      IF SO, you should throw them away IMMEDIATELY and you can substitute virgin/extra virgin olive oil or a natural coconut oil to moisturize in the meantime until you find a better, natural alternative!!! Tell ALL your friends and family!!!

  8. QUESTION:
    What is the best acne treatment for teens?
    I have mild acne but my current face wash, which I’ve been using up until now with good results, is no longer working. What is the best daily face wash/treatment?

    • ANSWER:
      for me, those face wash things never worked but i found something really simple that worked for me, and i love it cuz its completely cheap and easy and quick. i totttttally swear by it! here’s what you do:

      1. fill up your sink with steaming hot water
      2. put your face over the bowl of the sink and put a towel over your head, allowing you to steam your face without the steam escaping. this opens your clogged pores.
      3. stay like this for 3-5 minutes, then drain the sink and wash your face with your regular cleanser and warm water.
      4. finish with a splash of cold water to close your pores
      5. finally, apply any spot treatment you might have such as clearisil to any blemishes

      i know it looks like a lot, but its cheap and it honestly works. plus you don’t have to buy anything so there’s nothing to lose by trying it. it usually takes about a day after doing this for your zits to start going away. i usually do this about once a week but if your acne is bad you may want to do it more often. good luck :)

  9. QUESTION:
    What is the best acne product for my skin?
    My skin is grade 1 acne, meaning i have very mild acne and when i do have breakouts, it is very rare. but there are still some little pimples on my chin and nose area so what is the best product for me?

    my skin is dry, so i dont want the product to dry out my skin. also i heard foaming cleansers arent good for your skin but idk if thats a myth..let me know!

    • ANSWER:
      I don’t buy any product since most doesn’t work at ALL.

      These masks can get rid of blackheads, acne, oily skin, and dry skin, leaving your skin clean and smooth.

      Make your own face mask and exfoliater.
      Before you do a mask or exfoliater, press hot water or lukewarm water against your face with a wash cloth for a minute to moisturize before your masks.

      Here is an exfoliater:
      Mix 2 teaspoons of baking soda with a few drops of warm water. Massage the paste over your face and rinse with warm water over the sink. Do this at least twice every week. Now here are some face masks:

      Oatmeal-Yogurt Mask for OILY SKIN- Mix 2 tablespoons of uncooked oatmeal and 2 tablespoons of plain yogurt.

      Honey-Oatmeal Mask for DRY SKIN- Mix 2 tablespoons of honey and 1 tablespoon of uncooked oatmeal.

      Yogurt-Cucumber Mask for SENSITIVE SKIN- Puree 2 tablespoons of yogurt with 1/4 cup of peeled and sliced cucumber. Use a cotton ball to pat the mask onto your face and rinse with cool water.

      Only rub these masks and exfoliaters on twice a week, for if more, it will ruin your skin. Make sure you GENTLY pat on the masks too.

      To get rid of acne and blackheads also do this:

      Stay hydrated!
      Don’t touch your skin a lot.
      Wash your face every morning with soap and water.
      Don’t pick at your zits, it will leave scars.
      Wash your pillow case often about once a week.
      At night, put toothpaste on your zit and leave it on the whole night. Wash it off in the morning.
      Have a healthy diet!
      If you have bangs, cut them because the oil in your hair gets into your pores, which clogs them causing acne.
      Stay calm… stress causes acne!

      Good luck!

  10. QUESTION:
    What is the best acne solution/ facial cleanser for a 12 year old girl?
    Twelve year old girl with some small pimples around T-Zone. I was wondering what the best acne products (Clearasil, ProActive, etc.) and facial cleansers are best for this case.
    Useful answers only.
    Thank you!

    • ANSWER:
      You should try a natural way.
      Acne has an affect on everyone. It is not going to zap away it will take some time.
      You Will Need –
      • A gentle facial cleanser
      • Warm water
      • A towel
      • Topical acne medication
      • Sunscreen
      • Patience
      • A tissue
      • Noncomedogenic cosmetics
      • Shaving cream with benzoyl peroxide
      • A dermatologist
      • Prescription acne medicine
      Step 1:
      Wash your face with a gentle cleanser with warm water, every morning and night.
      Don’t put pressure on your acne it will make acne red and irritated.
      Step 2:
      Gently dab away water on your face, but don’t take all of the moisture away because it will only make your skin dry. Be careful to wash your face too much because it can irritate your skin. If you have oily skin, get a tissue and wipe the oil away.
      Step 3:
      Apply a topical acne medication, from a dermatologist or from any store. You can also get lotion, or gel containing benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid.
      Benzoyl peroxide gets bacteria from the skin and salicylic acid helps unclog pores and prevent your skin from peeling. Get one that fits better for your skin.
      Step 4:
      Protect your skin with a non-comedogenic sunscreen(sunscreen that doesn’t clog pores). To avoid your skin from way too much sunlight, that can make your acne worse.
      Step 5:
      Use only non-comedogenic, water-based make-up that is oil-free. There are moisturizers and makeup that is made for people who have acne
      Step 6:
      Be careful when you shave. Shaving can irritate your skin and shake in only one direnction.
      Some shaving creams have benzoyl peroxide, so it can help get rid of your acne.

      Step 7:
      NEVER squeeze, pop, or pinch acne. It causes more acne and it can make you get scarring.
      Step 8:
      Try avoid things touching your face, like holding a phone against your face, wearing sports equipment, or resting your chin on your hand.
      Step 9:
      Keep your hair clean and out of your face. The natural oils in hair can contribute to acne, as can hair products that contain oil.
      Step 10:
      If you still have acne while taking care of your skin you might want to go to a dermatologist. There are different types of acne and different treatment.
      Step 11:
      Be patient! Fighting acne can be slow, and it’s not going to zap away in a day. But when you get rid of your acne, you’ll say hello to your new face.

  13. QUESTION:
    What are some good acne products that will work best for me?
    I have large pores and acne mostly on my forehead. What’s the best acne product that will help get rid of my acne in about a month and a half or less? Also, is there any good products that will help shrink pores?

    • ANSWER:
      I never had acne, but when I did have the occasional breakout, Neutrogena products worked very well for me. Wash with warm water, to clean out the pores, and once all the soap is gone, rinse with cold water to close your pores.

      If you have acne, though, it is best to see a dermatologist. My husband had acne growing up and nothing worked until he got a prescription. True acne is often genetic and needs stronger treatments than what you can get over the counter, sometimes including pills in addition to face washes.

    Any suggestions?
    Thanks!

    BTW…my acne is mild, not moderate.

    • ANSWER:
      Honestly, most chemicals are off limits right now which is usually found is most of the products at regular stores. Im using Aveeno Calming cleaner and lotion. Its taken away the reddness and it’s all natural which is better regardless of being pregnant or not. Cetaphil has been good too, no harsh ingredients. I actually started rubbing slices of tomatoes on my face- its dried up extra oil and reddness. I rinse it off after the juice sits for 10-20 minutes.

      proactive is the best out there. but if you look the main ingredient in proactive is the same main active ingredient in dandriff shampoo. so if you cant get proactive for one reason or another just get some dandruff shampoo and wash your face with that (just shampoo not 2 in 1) me and my husband have been using it since we were 16 and havnt broke since, unless we dont use it.

  19. QUESTION:
    What have you found to be the best acne medication?
    14 year old daughter is beginning to get some minor acne. What have you used that has worked best for you. Thank you!

    • ANSWER:
      People make all kinds of suggestions about the best thing to do to cure acne, almost as many recommendations as there are people with acne, or companies trying to sell you something. Some cures I’ve heard include putting oatmeal, honey, lemon juice, tea tree oil, cucumber, vinegar, or toothpaste on your face. Practically every cosmetics company and company that makes personal care products makes something that is a “sure cure” for acne. If we think about this, and use some common sense, we have to come to the conclusion that there is no quick or easy cure for acne, because if there was it would be well known and doctors would be telling everyone about it. Numerous companies make a lot of money persuading people to buy products that at worst will make the acne worse, and at best may help some people a little. Often fewer products are better. People often make their acne much worse by using too many products. There really is no quick fix for acne. Don’t spend a lot of money on products just because their ads say that they will cure acne. Your doctor is the best person to ask for help, and he or she may recommend some prescription medication or non-prescription treatment that may be suitable for you..

      There are some very simple and basic things you can do that cost nothing. Keep your face or any other area affected by acne very clean. Any mild antibacterial soap will help with that. Rinse the area well to remove all soap residue. Drink plenty of water – it really does help to clear up acne. Eat a nutritious diet and get enough sleep. A healthy life style will make a difference. Try to reduce the stress in your life – stress contributes to acne, so also probably the more you worry about the acne and focus on it, the worse it will be.

      Probably the most useful and effective things you can do are to apply hot compresses to pustules and cysts and never to pick or squeeze pimples. Playing with or popping pimples, no matter how careful and clean you are, nearly always makes bumps stay redder and bumpier longer.

      Here are a few informative links with additional ideas about preventing and treating acne.

    What is the best acne cleanser for mildly oily skin?
    My skin is in between severly oily and normal, but I have a problem with small whiteheads appearing if I sweat alot or if I do not scrub my face well. I am wondering what the best acne treatment is for this condition.

    • ANSWER:
      St. Ives apricot scrub is good and it’s not expensive. So is clearasil. They have different grades of cleansers so that you can choose which is right for you.
      If you want to go a little more expensive, then neutrogena carries some really good cleansers.
      Older cleansers are noxema, and it’s still around and it still is a good one. Dove soap is also good. Keeps your skin in balance.
      Hope this helps

  22. QUESTION:
    What are the absolute best acne products?
    I would like to know what best products you can buy for acne. Not perscription products, just ones that you can walk into wal mart and buy. Please only answer from personal expirence.

    • ANSWER:
      From personal experience i have found many acne products such as face washes and scrubs to worsen the problem, especially if they are cheap – they can leave residue behind which blocks the pores and can even damage sensitive skin.

      Treatment creams (clearasil ultra rapid action treatment cream) are very effective at reducing spots that have already formed, although prevention is usually the best cure.

      The best treatment by far is through prescription so i won’t mention it, but you should consider talking to your doctor about it.

      Someone reccomended accutane: accutane works to remove permanently acne, but check the severe side effects it can have on you:

      http://encyclopedia.thefreedictionary.com/accutane

      I have tried witch hazel and it didnt work at all on me. It should be good for minor skin irritations.

      I have tried antibiotics two times. The first time I used it for about two months and my acne cleared some but not completely. I decided to stop, because is not good to take antibiotics for too long. This was like a year ago.

      The second time I tried antiobiotics was a month ago, it was another kind. They were prescribed for two weeks: they didnt help at all.

      If your daughter must use makeup it has to be oil free, because if it is not it will clog her pores even more.

      I am currently trying the Clinique line for acne. They have a line for treating acne and the line also offers makeup like foundation and powder. I use the foundation and it has good coverage. I am currently trying their acne clearing stuff. My acne cleared a little with one week of treatment but now it has come back. I will continue treatment for a month to see if I obtain better results. If this doesnt work, my next plan is to try Pro-active.

      I have heard comments about dieting my whole life and how some certain foods promote acne (chocolate, pizza, nuts, cheese…). I dont really believe this myself, because it has not been scientifically proven that this foods have this effect.

  24. QUESTION:
    What is the (all skin types included) best acne medicine?
    Normally, I am giving people advice on their skin, but I am very curious, so I had to ask this. I am not one who suffers from acne, but my clients constantley ask me this question, and having used no medicine for my face I am curious as to which one works the best. If you could please list products for each variation of skin, or just one that works well for all thanks. I am not looking for natural remedies, because, I know most of those, but if you feel you want to give me some, you can. :)

    • ANSWER:
      This is totally down my alley!
      I use Differin, it works really well for me! I tend to get oily skin in the T area of my face, while the other parts are way dry (sucks). So I use Differin wherever I get some pimples and I use a GEL moisturizer on the dry parts because it doesn’t have any oil in it (I use Clinique, it’s this yellowish lotion). I don’t get very many pimples now, I assume it’s normal to always have a few, I just cover them with a small drop of concealer, which does the trick.
      No skin is perfect but there are ways to take care of it! Also, I’ve noticed whiter teeth makes your face radiate more…

  25. QUESTION:
    What is the best acne cleanser at drugstores ?

    • ANSWER:
      Body Acne Treatment

      Following effective body acne treatments is one of the best body acne solution. If home remedies don’t work for you, you can opt for laser treatments which have always proven effective. Most of these procedures function by removing the damaged layers of skin and scar tissues. One of the most popular procedures is called dermabrasion which treats scar tissues by moving a spinning wire brush over the surface of the skin. Chemical peeling is also an option which can be considered. It starts by applying a chemical solution and then they peel of the scar tissues. Collagen injections are also known to clear the appearance of acne scars. Laser treatments are also popular when it comes to effective body acne scar removal.

      You can also go in for a body acne wash. This means using solutions which are available in the market. The most popular brand names are Exposed Acne Treatment, Neutrogena Body Clear Body Wash and Zenmed Body Acne Combo.

      Natural Treatment for Body Acne:
      If you are not a big fan of the acne treatments which are available in the market, I would suggest you try these body acne home remedies which guarantee results.

      1. The most important point to remember while getting rid of body acne is that your body secretes lots of oils and sebum. You need to keep your skin moist and hydrated. Body acne is often seen in teens as they go through puberty. When you go through puberty, your body produces excess sebum due to hormonal imbalance. It’s very necessary to have a bath daily and keep your body clean.

      2. Drink lots of water. It’s always good to keep the body hydrated and what better drink than water to keep up the moisture levels of the skin.

      3. Eating more fruits and veggies is also a good body acne prevention. It’s also important to exfoliate body with a good scrub once a while.

      4. Avoid eating oily and processed foods follow an acne diet for a better living.

      Hope now you know how to get rid of body acne. Follow the above given points religiously and your body appearance is bound to improve. If the problem persists you can consult a dermatologist

    • ANSWER:
      These questions are so difficult to answer. The honest truth is that it depends on your skin type. I use proactiv and it works amazingly. I LOVE it. My sister used proactiv for a month, and it didn’t help her at all. She now uses a product called clean&clear advantage (I think) and that seems to work great for her.

    Is there any good product out there that won’t kill my skin?

    • ANSWER:
      There are a lot of good natural acne treatments. Of course prevention is the best medicine. Here are some things you can do:

      * Become an antibacterial fanatic. Cleanse your face with an antibacterial cleanser, wipe the phone with an antibacterial wipe before you you use it, and be sure that your hands are clean when you touch your face.

      Change your pillowcase often! Bacteria builds up and that can cause you to break out.

      Don’t use a cloth or a sponge to wash your face. If you do be sure to change or wash it daily.

      Be sure to drink plenty of water, which can help flush the toxins from your body.

      Eat a healthy low fat diet, plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables and keep away from processed foods. Avoid too much dairy because it has been shown to increase the sebum production.

      Exfoliate. Getting rid of those dead skin cells will keep them from clogging your pores.

      Get plenty of rest and relax. Stress can cause an outbreak of acne.

      Vitamin B5 has been know to prevent acne, but it may also cause you intestinal problems.

      If your acne is really severe, you definitely should see a dermatologist. They might prescribe antibiotics, or other prescription medications.

    What is your best Acne Solution or methods to reduce Acne?
    Tell me what you guys think reduces Acne or rids it for some time. Best methods to treat it. Highly effective products for it. :)

    • ANSWER:
      I use oxy-10 occasionally when i get a huge one but all I can say is curing acne cannot be done overnight.If you are having frequent breakouts,like me 1 year ago,it either has something to do with your diet or due to hormone imbalance.I had a lot of pimples on my jawline before and i tried all methods,applying toothpaste lime potato skin…they just don’t work/failed to produce my desired result.The skin on my jawline’s clearer now as i adopted a healthy eating and exercising lifestyle.
      Most importantly,I would like to stress that prevention is better than cure.Avoid touching your face with your hands even if it is itchy,use the back of your hands to touch it.You have to be disicipline to cleanse and mosturise everyday but limit yourself to once a day.I used to cleanse 3 times a day and developed more zits as compared to cleaning once.I do an egg white mask like once a month and i swear its wonderful to unclog pores and make the skin look great!It’s definitely better than those nose strips out there as egg white is gentle on skin.you can check it up on youtube or pm me for details:).

  35. QUESTION:
    what is the best acne treatment for guys?
    my borther is 15 and he wants an acne treatment. what acne treatment is the best for guys? and i mean one that isnt expenciveand not the Proactive.

    thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      First of all it depends on how severe the acne is. Over-the-counter treatment may not work for your brother. If you are looking for a cheap fix, make sure he washes his face in the morning and before he goes to bed with warm water and a facial cleanser. There are a lot of facial cleansers out there, but if he wants one that will treat acne, it should contain benzoyl peroxide or salyclic acid. You mentioned ProActiv in your question, so he may want to try the off brand which is called AcneFree. This product usually costs around and is a lot like the ProActiv system in that it uses a face wash, astringent/toner, and moisturizer. This product will usually work for most people if you use it correctly. If he feels that his acne is still not going away after using the product for a few months, then he should get an appointment with a dermatologist so they can prescribe him some more serious acne treatment.
      Instead of Accutane which is the “last resort” treatment for acne and is usually used for only the most severe cases of acne, he may want to look into Minocyclin and Retin-A. Both of those are only available by prescription.

  40. QUESTION:
    Best acne products ? What are the best acne treatments that work?
    I’m looking for the best acne products or product that work for you or heard that is working.

    • ANSWER:
      Getting rid of acne is something that you might think is downright impossible – numerous people have attempted many treatments without any success. It’s no mystery, acne is a huge pain! However, you need to realize that it’s entirely possible to clear pimples once you realize how to truly treat it.

      First off, let’s take a look at why the acne treatment products you buy in the drugstores almost never work. It’s critical to know this if you want to get rid of your acne.

      The issue with almost all of the acne products out there is that they are formulated to just cover up or zap zits after they are already on your skin. They simply act to handle zits one at a time instead of handling acne at the heart of the problem.

      This is a big flaw! What’s the point of attempting to get rid of a pimple if you aren’t doing anything to prevent new zits from forming? This is a huge annoyance of mine and I see many individuals wasting money because of it.

      You need to use a treatment that targets all of the elements that can cause acne if you want to clear your skin. There are four major causes: too much oil on the skin, acne causing bacteria, skin inflammation and plugged up skin pores. Getting rid of acne involves treating each of these causes.

      You can’t find anything extremely useful in the stores, but there are acne products available that can actually clear your skin. The most effective acne solutions will target all of the causes and work like a full system to clear your acne.

      You’ll be impressed at how fast you can obtain results by following this path. In less than a week your skin will show hefty improvement and quickly after your skin will be clearer than you may have imagined. It’s a fantastic feeling being able to look in the mirror and seeing the improvements.

      Saying goodbye to zits is not only achievable, but it’s actually very easy once you locate the correct product.

      Finding the best acne treatment isn’t complicated once you understand what to look for.

  47. QUESTION:
    What is the best acne treatment for your back?
    I have struggled with back acne for a long time, and it is embarrassing to wear swimsuits and tank tops. I have heard of Murad acne spray, but I’m not sure if it works. What treatments/washes/sprays are the most effective?

    • ANSWER:
      Most acne that occurs from your chin and downward is mostly due to an imbalance of hormones and poor diet. Most topical creams and cleansers will not work. Acne starts from within so you have to treat from the inside. Drink *lots* of water (with fresh lemon wedges…helps cleanse the liver) do not eat a lot of refine sugars and dairy…if you like your dairy…switch to organic…no hormones added in the dairy…which regular dairy has a lot of estrogen [same with chicken] ) So look for more into the organic foods….all those additives, pesticides and chemicals that you ingest does havoc on your skin. And when you cleanse your skin…use a mild soap…not any of those harsh acne fighting soaps…you are just irritating the skin with all of those chemicals as well. Sensitive skin needs a mild cleanser. Also make sure your bed sheets and pillow cases are changed on a regular basis as well. These are just a few pointers I have…don’t have time to go through everything…it is a long battle but you will get there…good luck…I know what you are going through :(

Best Cystic Acne Treatment

No matter how old you are, you are always at risk for suffering from acne. If your acne is hormonal, chances are you’ll also suffer from cystic acne, which is generally more difficult to get rid of than typical acne vulgaris. Cystic acne is formed like regular acne, except it enlarges your pore and digs down into the lower layers of the epidermis, leaving a hard, puss or blood-filled nodule in your back, face, or chest. If this describes your acne, you need to find a cystic acne treatment before your skin begins to scar.

Some of the best cystic acne treatment options I’ve found are right here:

1. SkinMedica acne care system: This three-piece acne care system is all you need as far as a topical daily treatment system goes. It comes highly recommended from dermatologists and is soft on your skin, but tough on the cysts and zits. It uses salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide, so you get the best of both worlds when it comes to chemicals that are very effective on cystic acne.

2. Sulfur treatment cream: Proactiv carries one of the best sulfur cystic acne treatments I know of. You can generally get it for free if you buy one of the their kits, as it comes as a bonus. The Proactiv kit, by the way, is also great for dealing with cystic acne, as it comes with several benzoyl peroxide treatments in different forms.

3. Holistic acne cyst treatment: The most effective acne treatment is usually an internal one, such as an acne diet or a change in food habits. This is especially crucial for cystic acne, which is harder to get rid of by using topical treatments alone.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    Is cystic acne treatment the best acne treatment available?
    Is this an effective acne treatment available on the market?

    • ANSWER:

  2. QUESTION:
    Best cystic acne treatment available?
    Need an effective acne treatment available on the market?

    • ANSWER:
      The best treatment is 13-cis retinoic acid (Accutane, or numerous other brand names). However, it’s a prescription item, under tight control, generally prescribed by your dermatologist.

  3. QUESTION:
    What’s the best treatment for Cystic Acne?
    Mine take MONTHS to go away and they hurt like crap! whats the best treatment or product i can buy to get them go away the quickest?

    • ANSWER:
      Your best treatment for cystic acne involves a particular active ingredient known as Benzoyl peroxide. Benzoyl peroxide is often the primary ingredient in most acne creams or gels but you must start with a low dose as it can have a harsh effect on your skin and actually cause redness.

      The trick to using a benzoyl peroxide based product is in knowing how to best use it for your skin in its current cystic acne condition.

      A 2.5 percent benzoyl peroxide cream or gel may be your best treatment for cystic acne. That said if your face is generally sensitive consider applying the benzoyl peroxide only once a day for the first couple of weeks after which, you can gradually increase the frequency of your applications as your skin becomes tolerant of it.

      Please note that if your skin becomes crusty it may indicate that you are allergic to benozyl peroxide. An allergic reaction is rare but if it does happen please discontinue its use and consult your doctor or dermatologist.

      Your cystic acne will also benefit from a good over-the-counter facial cleanser. Any cleanser you use to treat your cystic acne should be gentle and not too drying. The last thing you want to do is strip your skin of all its oils.

      Using regular soap is ill advised for anyone who has cystic acne.

      Next on your best treatment for cystic acne agenda is a good facial moisturizer. Once you have a facial moisturizer you like you should use it daily to help counteract the reddening and drying effect of the benzoyl peroxide.

      When selecting a facial moisturizer for use on cystic acne you want to make sure that it is not comedogenic and has moisturizing effects.

      One of the best products I’ve discovered is Eucerin Skin Renewal as it helps prevent your skin from flaking. That said, you’ll want to make sure you have already been using your best treatment for cystic acne cream or gel for at least a couple of weeks as it contains lactic acid which has been known to sting skin when first used in conjunction with a benzoyl peroxide based product.

    Where I can get best treatment for cystic acne?

    • ANSWER:

  5. QUESTION:
    cystic acne treatment?
    which is the best cystic acne treatment available?

Topical antibiotic drugs like Retinol or Benzoyl Peroxide assist in getting rid of the bacterial infection in the pores and hair follicles. Oral cystic acne treatment in the primary form could comprise of Doxycycline, Erythromycin or Tetracycline. Nonetheless prior to beginning whatever medicine it’s crucial to empathize the side effects.

      If Cystic acne is serious, normal antibiotic drugs might not clear the problem. You may be prescribed Accutane for serious cystic acne remedy. This is a really effectual antibiotic, which clears the cystic acne inducing bacterial infection. Nevertheless this drug does have lot of fallouts, which might be in the form of clinical depression, faulty baby in pregnant women, headaches, and joint pains amongst numerous other fallouts.

      B) Homeopathic : Homeopathic cures that are prescribed frequently for cystic acne treatment are Arnica and or Silicea. Since it’s thought that Homeopathic medications address the root cause of the problem and not the consequence, homeopathic treatment could in reality be effective to eliminate acne cyst. Nonetheless one had better take these medicines through a homeopathic doctor only.

      C) Natural Home cures: Some of the effective natural home cures for Cystic acne remedy are:

      1) Pulp of fruits like orange and grapefruit, which comprise salicylic acid, is very effective cystic acne remedy. The juice from the pulp requires to be drained and the pulp could and then be used to the skin directly.

      2) A spread created by combining turmeric, sandalwood and Neem is also an effective cystic acne remedy since turmeric has anti-bacterial attributes and assists in clearing cystic acne.

    • ANSWER:
      You really need to go back to the doctor. A doctor must treat cystic and nodulocystic acne. Powerful systemic medications are usually required. Acne of this severity can be hard to control. Don’t be discouraged if the first treatment attempt fails. It may take several tries to find the treatment or combination of treatments that work for you. Some common treatments for nodulocystic acne include:
      Oral antibiotics
      isotretinoin
      Oral contraceptives – for women
      Surgical excision and drainage – A doctor makes a small incision in the skin and extracts the infected material.
      Intralesional corticosteroid injections – Medication is injected directly into the lesion to reduce inflammation and shrink the blemish.

  10. QUESTION:
    What is the best acne treatment?
    I have tried Proactive, Clean and Clear, Clearisil, Acne Free, and Neutrogena.

    The ones I’m curious about are SKin ID, Murad, and the Neutrogena three step one. Any others will help.

    I have mildly oily skin, and cystic acne with blackheads. Also what is the return poilicy on all of the ones you recommend?

    • ANSWER:
      Cystic acne, also known as nodulocystic acne, is a severe form of acne wherein acne develops into small cysts. Acne cysts are not true cysts in the sense that they are not abnormal dilations of skin structure, but rather nodules of inflammation. Although not uncommon, it is rarer than other types of acne. Like other forms, it is caused by an excess buildup of sebum in the pores and, contrary to popular belief, is not caused by, nor is it affected by, hygiene or the lack thereof. A common treatment for cystic acne is Isotretinoin, which cures most acne in about 90% of patients.

  11. QUESTION:
    Best acne product for cystic acne?
    I have moderately severe cystic acne.
    I’ve tried Neutrogena, Clean and Clear, Biore, and all that other junk. It’s too harsh for my skin, my skin gets irritated easily by benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid doesn’t do much for me either.
    My skin gets dry really easily so I tried using Clinique’s moisturizer but it doesn’t help much either.
    I have very thin, asian skin.

    I want a natural, gentle product like the ones from Laneige that soothe my skin, but also something that is strong enough to GET RID OF this acne, not just PREVENT it. I’d also like to find some nice spot treatments as well.

    I’d really prefer asian brands because ordering online is no problem for me and American brands tend to have really harsh chemicals.

    Currently, I am using mixtures of home remedies, St. Ive’s green tea cleanser, Clinique’s moisturizer for oily skin, and Alba’s acne toner.

    • ANSWER:
      Hi Tammy

      This answer is to offer you some tips you may haven’t considered ..though they may sound pretty basic… I hope it helps you. For one not all acne programs like Proactive works for every one.

      What agravates acne?

      1- Oily hair.. so stay away from oily hair products like pomades, hairsprays and keep your hair off your forehead & face, keepit pulled back or have a short hair style, maybe put it in a hair net at night as it will keep it off of your skin.

      2- Skin cosmentics and suntan lotions.. so use types that do not clog pores .. like noncomedogenic (google it)

      3- Skin moisterizers on acne prone skin ..if you do feel you need to .. make sure it is not acnegenic.

      4- Washing your skin with hot water and harsh cleansers that can can further irritate your skin. ..Wash the skin gently with a mild soap or cleanser and warm (not hot) water once or twice daily.

      5- Scrubbing your skin to get rid of acne, this can actually make your acne worse and promote scarring by increasing inflammation or rupturing cysts under your skin, making bacteria spread.

      6- Picking your pimples or blackheads.. this can leave permanent scars. If you feel you just have to get that head out that is ready to burst.. go gently & immediately apply a topical antibiotic to help stave off infection.

      7-Stressing out. Stress can cause acne break outs, and herpie outbreaks as well. Quit worrying over the outward appearance of acne .. it doesn’t make you a bad person.. real beauty in a lot deaper than the skin.

      8- Not getting enough sleep can cause stress as well so get to bed and those 8 hours in .. an nap when you feel like.

      9- Poor nutrition …everyone knows that more fruits and vegetables in your diet is more healthy.. a healthy body will heal itself. Start drinking a lot more water .. and cut out those pops.

      10- No exersise.. exersising everyday can also make you healthier and rejevenate the skin by the increased oxegen from the increased blood flow.. it will make you stronger and healthier when combined with a nutritious diet.

      11- Hot humid environments.. like poorly ventilated gyms and kitchens.. the cooking grease your exposed to can add to pore clogging…

      12-Working out bacteria.. from equipment and sweat.. bring a long some pre-wetted alcohol towlelettes to gently wipe the sweat from your face .. back .. hands.. chest .. a long the work out lines ..to tight fitting work out clothes that trap moisture can cause bumps on your chest or back. .so wear lose fitting cotton attire.. in fact wearing lose fitting breathable attire always is beneficial when combating acne..

      13- Dirty make up and make up brushes.. throw out old contaminated make up and wash your brushes regularly in soapy water ..

      Some quick tips.. and I am a believer in the natural approach to healing ones body, ..the url below helped me..I learned about it from an article..maybe it can help you if you want to pursue healing your acne naturally and permanently…I’m not trying to sell you on it ..form your own opinion.. but it might be worth a look for you. I feel it offers a good path to permanent healing of skin problems and acne.

      Last tip .. bacteria is one of the key causes of acne, anything that keeps bacteria from touching your skin will help in acne prevention.

      I hope this helps you Tammy

    How can i lower my hormones to get rid of my acne naturally?
    I don’t have the money to see a dermatologist, but I’ve tried everything and it seems that hormonal treatment is my only option. I wash my face twice a day with oxy max face wash, that seems to be the best treatment for now but it doesn’t get rid of my cystic acne which for now is just above my neck. I also take vitamins a and b complex.

    • ANSWER:
      Having you mentioned “hormones” lead me to believe you are a teenager :)

      Although, there are certain risk factors that can influence the appearance of acne:

      -Genetic factors
      -Hormonal sistem
      -Sebaceous glands hyperactivity
      -Accumulation of dead skin cells
      -The level of bacteria in pores
      -Skin irritation or scratching of any kind (from the backpack, shoulder bag, tight clothes, etc.)
      -Treatments with steroids
      -Treatments with contraception, although many women have found improvements during this kind of treatment

      Here are some simple homemade acne remedies for Cystic Acne:
      * Keep your skin clean by washing with mild soap and water, twice daily (soap “no soda”, or as they say, “alkaline free”; shaving soap is best, solid or paste). Do not overdo it because otherwise you will stimulate overproduction of sebum, generated by the body attempts to replace lost sebum.

      In China lemon juice is used for cleaning face in such situations. If the lemons are missing, they can be replaced with the following alternatives:

      * Fresh apple juice and celery root 1:1, apply on the face in the morning and in the evening;
      * Cut a water walnut(Trapa natans) in two and rub slightly the face with its core 2-3 times a day;
      * Or, in the morning when you wake up, before you wash your teeth, apply saliva to the infected areas. When the saliva dries, repeat several times. It is like a autovaccin, because at night, the body mobilizes to fight bacteria in the mouth and there will be more antiseptic items in the saliva than during the day.
      * Avoid squeezing pimples, or repeated touching to avoid spreading infection.
      * Reduce sun exposure. Always use a sunscreen (lotion) for sunlight when sun exposure is unavoidable.
      * Increase the proportion of fruit and vegetables in the food. Eat mainly raw cucumbers and drink large amounts of green tea.
      * Avoid or give up completely food as: fried foods, oils and fats in general and animals especially, dairy products with high content of fat, white sugar or foods containing more sugar, spicy foods.
      * Avoid foods that aggravate acne or those you find hard to digest.
      * Make sure you have at least once a day a chair (defecation).
      * Do exercise regularly.
      * Sleep enough.

  14. QUESTION:
    My acne treatment method questions.?
    my treatment:
    Morning:
    Basis Face wash
    Clindamycin gel to all effected areas
    Aquaphor on extra dry patches(aka my best friend)
    Minocycline 100mg (oral form, 1 pill)

    Before bed:
    Basis face wash
    Differin XP .3% gel
    Minocycline 100mg (oral form, 1 pill)
    more aquaphor

    I have moderate to severe non-cystic acne on my face and back. very very sensitive skin, flakes on occasion and gets very red when applying. (this side effect is letting up)
    My questions are:
    1. If you have been on Differin XP, did this medication help or remove red scarring?
    2. If you or someone you know has been on any of these meds, were your/ your friends mouth very dry?
    3. If you have very sensitive skin, while on any of these meds did you experience any peeling or severe redness?
    Thanks in advance!

    • ANSWER:
      1. I have and yes it does help. As for scarring removal I’m not sure, ask your Dermatologist.

      2. Acne treatments followed correctly do tend to dry out your skin sadly. I’ve been in your shoes before. Aquaphor is an excellent choice for dry skin/lips though! Your friend gave great advice!

      3. Yes very much. Mostly around my lips and the corners of my nose. I hated it but I had terrible skin so I did the same as you with Aquaphor and just endured the dry skin. My skin is super sensitive so I was always in your position!

      Good Luck!

  15. QUESTION:
    Can a hot wet towel help reduce cystic acne on forehead?
    My best friend told me about a situation about placing a hot wet towel over your pimples or painful ones like cystic acne, and I thought it would be maybe a good idea, but not really sure. Has anyone ever done it before? If so, how long do I place the towel on my cystic acne to reducing it and make it better? She told me to do it for about a minute or 3 mins. once a day.

    She also told me that it’s better to do it before washing your face to open up the pores to get the acne treatments in more better. Is that true?

    Please tell me.

    • ANSWER:
      Yes, this can help. Doing this can help keep your face clean, and having a dirty oily face is what gives you acne. The towel must be really hot, and you have to let it sit on your face for a few minutes to open the pores. After that, get it hot again and gently rub your face to clean it.

  16. QUESTION:
    Acne scar treatments?
    I’m seeing a dermatologist in a couple of weeks and want to ask about treatments for my mildly moderate scars on my face and back (bad on my back). They make me very insecure even if they aren’t as bad as some cystic acne cases. I don’t feel I have a right to complain but I can’t help feeling bad them.

    What are the best treatments and what’s the cost? Can I get them on the NHS?

    • ANSWER:
      i know exactly how you feel, as i suffered from a bout of adult cystic acne that mysteriously came and went in one year, leaving a wake of pitted scars behind it- and i know it can make you self conscious, so dont feel bad about feeling a little sad about the issue. however, many times insurance will cover part of the cost for laser repair of scarring, so ask your derm if they have a payment plan, what insurance usualy covers for those patients,and then check your insurance company’s website to see if they cover part of the costs regularly for laser repair. (im from the u.s. so im not familiar with other countries’ health care, but im sure yours is far better than ours right now:)

  18. QUESTION:
    Can you treat deep cystic acne scars on forehead? Are they permanent?
    Im 18 now and iIve had moderate-severe acne for 9 years, heavily on my forehead and some times on my face.. I used to get cystic acne and white head acne, but now I just get severe cystic acne all over my forehead and the 2 areas on my face next to my nose. Over the years these acnes have left me with deep pits, and lines in my forehead, and purpilish scarring. Hopefully I’ll be getting treatment soon to control it (saving up), but I was just wondering if there is any way to treat those horrible deep pits, or are they there for life.. if it is possible what is the best and most cost efficient method?

    • ANSWER:
      I hate to be the bearer of bad news but the only successful treatment for pitted scarring is laser resurfacing, more specifically the fractional laser treatment. This laser is ablative which means it removes tissue to stimulate new skin growth. This should only be performed by a physician. Do not seek treatment at a medical spa where an aesthetician or nurse performs this procedure. It’s very invasive and can be very dangerous in the wrong hands. Now the good news, the results are awesome. The bad news this procedure is very expensive and it’s very painful (lots of downtime). If I were you I’d set up a consultation with a plastic surgeon in your area. A deep chemical peel such as TCA could also provide you benefit.

  19. QUESTION:
    A question about acne scarring?
    Okay please can I have your attention. Be for you answer, please read all of this because I’m tired of getting the same answer that will not solve my problem. I have CYSTIC! acne. A very severe form of acne. Its the same thing but its a disease and its wayyyyy worse. Please research it before you give an answer. I’ve tried everything possible. I’ve used lotions, anti-biotics, home remedies, even the best treatment in the world, ACCUTANE. I still have severe, cystic acne. What more do I have to do? I’m 17. I’ve wasted pretty much most of my life away because of the control my acne has over me. I don’t like going out. People always stare. And I always wonder if they are talking about. I’ve been made fun of an insane amount. I’m actually starting to have emotional problems. I’m a freaking guy! I don’t like crying and breaking down and wondering how I got to this point in life. It feels like my life is a suspense novel or movie or something. You might not think acne can have this kind of affect on people but it does. I’m so use to being that guy who got all the girls. Now I watch my younger bro who is one year younger live my old life. Its like I’m being tormented. I’ve tried everything even prayer. I still have faith in God. I’d never ever give up on him. But some times I get to that point where I just want to give up on everything. I don’t want to go to school anymore. I go there to get made fun of, stared at, and watch others live there happy lifes while I let the anger and depression build up. Please try to understand where I’m coming from. I want an answer to this acne problem. I don’t want to have any scars or anything to remind me of this horrible time in my life. Like because of my acne, I haven’t had a gf in forever. I have no friends any more cause I’m not that well liked any more. I don’t like to go out, I don’t like to go swimming because I have body acne too. I can’t work out because of the body acne. I know life is not about superficial things but how you feel about your self does, and to be honest I don’t like myself anymore. And yes I have asked my parents about councling but they feel that my acne isn’t that big of a deal. No one does. But me, cause I’m actually the one living this nightmare. I guess if its not your problem you shouldn’t care. But if it is you should begg for help. Anyways will I ever have a normal looking face again.

  20. QUESTION:
    What’s The Best Thing For Hormonal Acne?
    I gets the worst cystic acne around my jawline for a week every month. It’s unbearable and painful. Washes and treatments with benzoyl peroxide and sycilic acid only work for bacterial acne, which I don’t have. I’ve heard of birth control being prescribed for acne related to hormones… But I already have a IUD (non hormone birth control) Should I ask my doctor for ortho tri cyclin anyways? And just have 2 birth controls… has anyone had ortho tri cyclin clear their skin?
    No I don’t have any children. They used to only give it to women who have had kids before because it stretched the uterus making room for it but now it’s smaller and they just measure the womb right before insertion with a metal rod =)
    I haven’t had any problems with it

    • ANSWER:
      You mentioned that you had an IUD. Have you had children before? An IUD is a great form of birth control but is only recommended to women who have had a child.

      One thing you can do it eat right. Some people don’t believe that is true, but when the acne is caused from hormones, watching your diet can really help. Also, stress can be a cause.

  21. QUESTION:
    Acne removal surgery?
    I’m 16. I’ve had acne for a few years (probably started around 8 or 9 because I hit puberty early). Anyway I’ve tried prescription acne treatments, noxema, clean and clear and proactive. It never clears my skin up all the way no matter what. So I’m sick of my acne now. I get like little cystic acne on my neck and face a lot and they hurt badly. I have it on my back, shoulders, neck, face and chest. I’ve tried everything and it just doesn’t work. On my best days, my skin looks good but it never clears up completely. So I’ve heard about acne removal surgery. Does it work and how much does it cost? How old do you have to be to get it (with parental consent) and what kind of doctor do you go to to get it? Please help. Thanks.
    Gurly, there is something for acne removal. I’ve seen it before and it removes acne. Not for scars.

  23. QUESTION:
    Repost: is it stupid to let my skin condition get the best of me? Even when it’s just temporarily?
    This is a long rant, so please bear with me. I realized I posted this in the wrong category first, so I’m reposting it in the right one

    So I’ve suffered from severe acne for 4 years, and I hated it. I hated the way I looked, I was embarrassed to go out in public in fear of what people might think of me because of my skin condition, talking in front of class was a complete nightmare; I developed an eating disorder cos I felt fat (allthough when looking back I realized that I was in fact super thin to the point where my bones would stick out), I hated every facial feature, my hair, my body…everything. I tried every acne treatment out there, and it didn’t work. I kept waiting for that Hollywood-story where “the ugly duckling” turns into the swan, and it never happened for me…and then I tried a new skin treatment and within 3 months, my acne was gone. Completely. I did still have the scars, but they faded over a 6 month period and before starting at a new school, my skin was clear and it stayed that way. I gained weight and now have a normal weigh – a few pounds more than what l would like, but that’s okay ;) I started seeing features in my face that I liked, and I even dared to talk to strangers, something that I have never ever done before. That was about a year ago, and I have even gone outside, in public, without make up! I haven’t done that since the 7th grade! But Last week I started breaking out like crazy…I have never had cystic acne, but all of the sudden I now have it on my jaw, my cheeks (I never had breakouts on the cheek), my forehead…all over my face, and it looks terrible. And within days my “new” self-esteem is crumbling. I feel ugly and terrible, and I even considered staying home from school today cos I feel so low about myself and the way I look. All the negative things I felt have come crashing back, and I don’t know what to do…Is it ridiculous to feel this way? How can I fix it? I have never been bullied or anything over it, so there is no obvious reason why this should affect me so…Thanks for any (constructive) replies…please no mean comments, really can’t take it right now…

  24. QUESTION:
    Any Aestheticians??? I need to know about High Frequency Facial Equipment usage for treating acne?
    Okay…so i have cystic acne and the 1 thing that actually worked on my skin when I received a facial was the high frequency machine. I bit the bullet and bought a high-end spa device that is the identical device that my aesthetician uses on me to treat acne using high frequency.
    she put a salicylic serum on my face prior to using high frequency. she told me that the combination of the serum with high frequency would help to further penetrate the salicylic serum.
    I am just confused because i thought that this device should not be used in conjunction with alcohol based products.
    Can you let me know what is classified as a safe serum to put on my face (that will help my cystic acne) prior to using the high frequency device. I want to use a serum in conjunction with the treatment!
    Please give me proper instructions for the most effective treatment( inclusing best serums to use with this device during treatment)…. including how often i should to it!
    THANKS

    • ANSWER:
      Hello,

      I’ve been an esthetician since 1996, fyi. I use the HF after extractions and before the mask. I would recommend that you get some facial gauze at a beauty supply store. It usually comes in packs of about 200 pieces, folded in 4″ X 4″ squares. Unfold a sheet of gauze and place it on your skin. With that in between the HF head and your skin, you will have a very easy slip and can glide all over your face without the use of a serum. High Frequency treatments are anti-bacterial. They do not help products penetrate the skin more than a tiny bit. Galvanic machines are used for deep product penetration. Instead of wasting lots of expensive serum using it to gain slip for your HF head, use it after your treatment. When I was a new estethician, I was also trained with the serum method. The only purpose for it with use in a HF treatment is to get the glide factor. I discovered the gauze method on my own after years of bumbling through services with serums that need to be reapplied again and again during the course of a two minute HF treatment.

      Here is a link to a good resource for very effective and natural facial serums suited for your skin type. Try to mask two or three times a week with a clay based or astringent masque, like Eminence’s Sour Cherry.

      Good luck!

  27. QUESTION:
    I have horrible skin. Why is this happening to me?
    I have horrible, cystic acne ridden skin. I started having acne when i was 9 years old and I am now 15. I have been to 8 very professional dermatologists but they all failed and kept pointing me to the next best one until i reached one of the best dermatologists in the country. But still, he failed. I have tried proactive and clearasil with horrific results. acne md, skin id, all the big products. they all made it worse. I’ve tried every kind of extreme acne treatment, every kind of medicine, and i eat no sugar or saturated fats, no greasy meat, nothing. I eat all organic and i constantly drink water all day and herbal tea with every meal. but last month i did the unthinkable and ate a slice of cake and after that my skin was complete hell for a week. I get plenty of vitamins and minerals and protien. change my pillow cases every night, clean my face twice a day, basically, i do everything right, but i just have to face the fact that i am doomed to a life of acne. My father is 58 and he still has acne. he has had it all his life starting around the same age my tragedy began. and my mother also had cystic acne. I don’t have many friends, and this is the reason why. No guy has ever liked me more than an acquaintance and I feel completely disgusting. People think i don’t take care of myself and that i chose this. People tend to avoid me. I also have had a countless number of strangers come up to me in places like walmart or the grocery store and tell me to do the public a favor and get rid of my acne. I think the worst time was when two adults and a guy most likely in his late teen years, all started hollering across the street and told me to put a bag over my head. I am currently trying organic masks and making my own moisturizers and organic acne treatments. It kind of worked, but still, not much of a difference in my appearance. I fear that I will never have a boyfriend and never marry. I want children, but again, i may never have a husband, and i wouldn’t want to bring them into the world, knowing what they may go through because of my mutated genes. Also, who would want to hire me? My chances of being successful are slim if i look like this. I dream of clear, smooth skin on my face just like everyone else. and i dream of no more physical and emotional pain. I usually don’t leave the house unless i have to. whenever i go out I always keep my head down, wear hoodies alot, and i always wear my hair down so i can use it to hide my face. when people look at me, they always have this intimidating look on their face, no one ever sees my eyes, or my hair, they only see my skin and before anyone can get to know me, they immediately decide i’m not friend material. I’m a very shy person and one of my biggest fears is talking to people and being judged by other people. I have thought about suicide a few times. I even tried to think of a plan. But it would be too devastating for my family. It would be extremely selfish and i wouldn’t be able to do it knowing my parents would have to go through the loss. I just don’t know what to do. My skin has taken everything away from me; my hope for the future, my friends, my dignity, my sanity, everything. Why is this happening to me? Where is there a way out besides death?
    Already tried accutane for months. never worked
    Also i tried proactive and it made my face 3 times worse. and i heard that from many other people too that it made theirs worse. I’m just so hopeless and I’m almost ready to give up since the chances are high that I’ll be just like my dad. I just need to find some way to try to accept it, but i’m just so depressed.

    • ANSWER:
      First, you should realise that you are 15 – you are still a teenager. Adolescents start developing acne due to hormone imbalances, diet, and genetics (or younger. Depends on their genes). Some young adults (early 20’s) remain to have acne till later in life when they’re around their 30’s.

  28. QUESTION:
    PCOS in a lean 22 year old girl?
    I am fairly certain that I have PCOS, diagnosed by a dermatologist.

    I have mild hair growth and cystic acne (though its 90% gone away through treatment)

    I am naturally [extremely] strong and athletic…also a generally intense person, naturally waking up at 6-6:30 am every day to run, read, play video games, or leisurely study (in the summer)

    I am a finance student

    I do not go to parties or go to bars or “hang out” because I always feel disappointed that I had wasted time after doing these things, so, I dont do them.

    I am an artist, athlete and student, do not drink or smoke, eat mostly carbohydrates and simple sugars, and I give all of my time to focus hard on my pursuits.

    Ive never had any desire for a relationship or marriage, but for relations.
    I like to be alone with my dog and art and reallllly good food, and have my own way to me, I am content, I prefer phone conversations, but realize that it is not the usual mindset for a 22 year old girl in America.

    I have always had irregular periods, usually they come every 2-3 months and are light. Which is very nice, but I get huuuuuuuuuge hot flashes and will throw up if I don’t take medicine within about….3 hours of its onset.

    I also have had odd blood sugar fall-offs, in which Ive collapsed in the bathroom from it one time, and an ambulance was called, they gave me some odd gel to ‘bring me back’, it took only a few minutes to get me back to normal levels after the gel.

    I run about 3-4 miles a day, and take in around 1500 calories a day

    I am a 5’10 feet tall girl weighing around 146 pounds. I am trying to lose weight, because I enjoy being skinny and wearing skinny jeans.

    I store fat deep in my thighs, and on my lower back. No fat at all on the belly, I have had a natural 4 pack for most of my life there. My veins are always popped out in my arms and on my stomache, to the horror/delight of many boyfriends.

    I was wondering, is this common for a 22 year old? PCOS?
    Am I and the (erm, best) dermatologist in my metropolitan area correct in the uh, diagnosis?

    Will I have trouble losing weight for the rest of my life

    Does anyone have any advice in regards to this condition?

    If you don’t think that this is a correct analysis of PCOS, what other….diagnosis would you think I have?

    I appreciate any answers!! Thank You!

    • ANSWER:
      I have to say first and foremost that your rigorous exercise routine can not be done while taking in only 1500 calories. 1500 calories is the type of caloric intake for a dieting person,which at 5’10 and 146 lbs you should not be doing. Also if you’re athletic and also lift weights along with your running then you should certainly have a higher caloric intake around 2500-2800. If you don’t feel comfortable with a doctor telling you what you should do, please see a nutritionist, as they specialize in caloric intake.

      But yes PCOS can be affecting you, in fact it sounds like it might be the cause of your irregular periods and illness. Your health has no bearing on whether you’d have it or not.

      I suggest seeing your primary care physician to be diagnosed. He will likely ask for your history on menstrual cycles and whether you has acne, hair thinning, irregular periods, etc. He may also conduct a blood test to further certify whether it’s PCOS.
