To avoid these possible outcomes, dermatologists recommend that people treat acne. When the skin clears, treatment should continue. Treatment prevents new breakouts. Your dermatologist can tell you when you no longer need to treat acne to prevent breakouts.

WITCH HAZEL FOR ACNE The treatment of acne is a tough challenge for many people and this is so because many OTC acne products only offer temporary solutions, and leave a lot of negative side effects and these side effects also takes a lot of trouble to deal with them. Nature rightly has the answers Read More …
I suffered from acne for years. As I got older, it got worse. After trying numerous OTC remedies, at great expense, I started doing research on what the problem could be. Chemicals! SLS/ALS’s trigger acne. Propylene glycol triggers acne. Parabens trigger acne. Mineral oil triggers acne. The list goes on and All these chemicals were linked to my bad skin. So, I stopped using everything – shampoo, face/body wash, toothpaste, deodorant, lotions, creams, etc. I started over. K.I.S.S. – keep it super simple. Natural is the key with the fewest ingredients possible. There are cosmetics out there that are natural and pigmented with fruit. There are soaps out there that are just made with castille soap. Baking soda for deodorant. Read the labels – you’d be surprised. The stuff is even in our food. Moisturize with an organic oil (yes, you can put natural oil on your face if you have acne). Look into essential oils and adding a few drops. Eliminate everything and then start adding in a few natural things. After I eliminated all the chemicals, my skin cleared. I get a zit here and there (PMS related), but rarely. Read your labels! Note: the cosmetic industry is self-regulated. Even if it says “natural” it may not be. Don’t be fooled – read the ingredients.

Because as a teenager I had pimples and acne, I tried all kinds of skin-care products for acne, treatments for acne, advice on how to treat pimples, tricks to solve pimples, and more. Nothing worked, and I had incredibly poor self-esteem. Fortunately, I found out how – once and for all – to get rid of pimples, without it costing a fortune, and today I’ve got a beautiful skin without acne.
Apple cider vinegar – Dilute it well in water. The more sensitive your skin is, the higher the ratio should be so as not to irritate it any further. You can use this as a toner or simply as a drink! It will help fight acne from the inside.
Isotretinoin: Accutane was the original brand name; there are now several generic versions in common use, including Sotret, Claravis, and Amnesteem. Isotretinoin is an excellent treatment for severe, scarring, persistent acne and has been used on millions of patients since it was introduced in Europe in 1971 and in the U.S. in 1982. It should be used for people with severe acne, chiefly of the cystic variety, that has been unresponsive to conventional therapies like those listed above. If taken in sufficient dosage, it should eliminate the need to continue the use of prescription drugs in most patients. The drug has many potential serious side effects and requires a number of unique controls before it is prescribed. This means that isotretinoin is not a good choice for people whose acne is not that severe but who are frustrated and want “something that will knock acne out once and for all.” In order to use the drug, the prescribing physician, the patient, and the supplying pharmacy must be enrolled in the online “iPLEDGE PROGRAM.” Used properly, isotretinoin is safe and produces few side effects beyond dry lips and occasional muscle aches. This drug is prescribed for five to six months at a dosage that has a high likelihood of preventing the return of acne. Fasting blood tests are monitored monthly to check liver function and the level of triglycerides, substances related to cholesterol, which often rise a bit during treatment but rarely to the point at which treatment has to be modified or stopped.
That is untrue about bacteria being unable to feed on honey because of the size of the molecules. When you eat honey, the molecules are broken down by your own body’s processes into 2 smaller molecules which are regular forms of sugar (which bacteria *can* feed on).
Contact dermatitis (red, dry, itchy skin) can be due to irritancy or allergy. It can be treated with a topical corticosteroid such as hydrocortisone cream (available at a NZ pharmacy without prescription).
Isotretinoin is a very effective treatment, but it has significant side effects and is dangerous to an unborn child. It is usually taken at a dosage of 1 milligram (mg) for every kilogram of body weight once daily for 16 to 20 weeks.
