Eighty percent of cases of severe acne can be traced through inheritance from one’s parents. The role of diet remains disputed among dermatologists, but the most recent research suggests that different diets can influence the way genes that influence acne are expressed. Meanwhile, the idea of developing a vaccine for acne has been floating around for some time — as a way to prime your body so that it doesn’t react so strongly against the bacteria during the height of a breakout.
Drink plenty of water: Our body gets dehydrated very quickly. Water is one of the important things our body organs require to function properly and it also helps in maintaining the skin soft and supple. Without enough water, our skin gets very dry and we use a heavy duty moisturize to maintain it supple. But moisturizers can clog the pores, so it is important to drink plenty of water.
Use the right skin care products. Apply an oil-free moisturizer if your skin is dry or itchy. An astringent is only recommended when you have oily skin and even then the astringent should only be applied to oily spots. If you want to use an exfoliating product, ask your dermatologist about the best treatment for your skin type.
If the only cystic acne advice you’ve received so far is “don’t pick it,” you’re in a good place. The next step, after visiting your dermatologist and seeking pro advice, is enlisting the help of skincare products that can help keep your skin in the clear.

Unfortunately, there’s no overnight cure for acne. In order to properly get rid of acne without damaging your skin, you must practice a daily cleansing routine. Use a gentle acne treatment that effectively fights breakouts without causing damage to the skin.
Like apple cider vinegar, lemon juice contains citric acid. It also boasts L-ascorbic acid, a natural astringent and antioxidant, says Dr. Jaliman. “Wipe it across your pimples with a cotton ball and leave on overnight,” she suggests.
Since everyone gets acne at some time, the right time to treat it is when it becomes bothersome or when the potential for scarring develops. This can be when severe acne flares suddenly, for mild acne that just won’t go away, or even when a single pimple decides to show up the week before one’s prom or wedding.
hi, I use witch hazel lotion for cleansing, it stings less than lemon juice. Also, what would you recommend for really painful acne? mine isn’t cystic but very painful and the spots often full of green or white stuff.
For UVA protection, a sunscreen with high UVA protection of PA+++ or higher of PA++++ as recommended, especially to treat PIE. PPD is the UVA equivalent of SPF; use a sunscreen with a minimum of PPD20. The PA+ system has a + that corresponds to a tier of PPD protection. Of note, different countries use different PA systems. Japan and Taiwan changed their PA system to a 4+ tier system while Korea uses a 3+ tier system.
Reduce Coffee Intake – Coffee can be one of the biggest contributing causes of acne in some people. Yet, it is also one of the most difficult habits to break. On the surface, it’s hard to make the connection between coffee consumption and acne. Coffee, itself is extremely acidic – leading to inflammation. It can also contribute to a B vitamin deficiency, which affects stress management (see below). Unbridled stress causes inflammation and hormone disruption. All of this adds up to the perfect storm for acne to rear its ugly head.
