Hello everyone, I’ve got nasty oily skin and have had bouts of acne. Things seem to be working and then after awhile they don’t. Some natural remedies to try would be to get ground cloves and make a toner with it by adding a little water then dab on your zits with a q-tip. It makes my achne heal much faster. It tingles too. Also tea tree oil works good for a little while, but then stops working. So, you have to switch up ur products. I switch between benzoil peroxide products and those with tea trea oil. I also drink tea with some burdock root in it. You can get a tea ball difuser and the burdock at a health food store. This helps to keep the achne under control. Also make sure to wash your face twice a day and If you wear a lot of makeup like I do then you should wash off the makeup first and then wash again to get the dirt out of your pores. Be sure to change your pillow case every two days to keep dirt and oil off of your skin while u sleep and wash your hair every day. 🙂

Clove Oil Benefits: Clove Oil has germicidal properties. It also has high amounts of potassium, phosphorus, vitamin A and C. Clove Oil contains “eugenol” that has anti-bacterial properties. It helps fight acne bacteria. It is known to fight skin infections. It also reduces swollen acne.
That’s just a guess, anyways. The point is, natural acne remedies are a good way to get rid of it, or at least hold it at bay. They make you step back and really figure out what’s going on with your skin, and how to work with it. Chances are, your skin will repay you in kind for not simply ravaging it with strange chemicals-and your wallet will probably thank you too.
hey guys If really wanna get rid of those sort of acnes which remain some scars from themselves, so one of the most effective thing for it is sweat.yeah sweating is the best remedy.its my own self’s experience.try to bring out a lot of sweat ,if the climate of ur place is dry, try to do alot of workouts.and haa another main point is that stop mastur******.:P……..hope it worked;)
Natural home remedies for acne include the use of face packs containing fenugreek paste or cucumber. Lemon juice diluted with mint and applied on the skin keeps infection at bay. Yogurt is also effective as it prevents the skin from getting too oily and supplies ample probiotics and nutrients to the skin.
Adequate and Appropriate Hydration – About 2 liters (8-9 cups) of purified water per day is optimum – more if you consume caffeine or alcohol, as both these substances are dehydrating. Also, please be mindful that the more alkaline the water, the better as acidic water is not absorbed well by your cells and can contribute to inflammation. Without the proper amount and type of water, acne promoting toxins cannot be properly eliminated from your body.
There are also several other ingredients you can use on skin to reduce inflammation, such as chamomile oil and aloe vera. These can especially be beneficial if your skin is irritated due to using products containing salicylic acid, benzoyl peroxide, or both.
Thrush (Candida albicans infection) affects 5% of treated women and most often affects the vagina. Thrush can also affect the oral mucosa or body folds (intertrigo), particularly in diabetics or in obesity. Thrush is less likely with erythromycin than with tetracycline.
The first part of any treatment plan is diagnosis. Understanding how to treat acne truly starts with understanding acne itself. Self-diagnosing your acne can be a good start, but with severe cases, you’ll want to schedule an appointment with a licensed dermatologist.
For 6 –12 months after an acne breakout, stay out of the sun as much as possible to avoid making dark spots and scars worse. When you are in the sun, use an all-natural sunscreen to protect skin. If scars do develop, dot a drop of rosehip seed oil or carrot seed oil on the scars twice per day until you notice a difference in the scar.
What triggers this process isn’t clear. Hormonal changes are associated with the excess production of oil – thus partially accounting for acne in teens and pregnant women – and heredity can be a factor, but research has shown that acne is not caused by dirty skin or by eating chocolate, pizza or greasy foods.
All around, it is the worst trend I have seen in a while, on par with the atkins diet.(did anyone actually enjoy that diet?Because a truly healthy diet is SUPPOSED to be enjoyable.) I suppose if you get a high from putting your body through hell then by all means, sweat away in your formfitting yoga pants but if you’re doing it for the health benefits alone then you are a damn fool.
Spironolactone (Aldactone) is another possible prescription treatment measure for cystic acne. Traditionally, it’s used as a diuretic to help treat edema and high blood pressure. In terms of acne, this medication can work by managing excess androgen levels that could be contributing to inflammatory acne. It’s typically only effective in women with acne on their jawline or lower face.
The stress of tackling cystic acne may cause individuals to lose hope. However, it’s never too late to start taking better care of your skin. So we got some practical tips from celebrity esthetician Renée Rouleau and board-certified dermatologist and psychiatrist Dr. Amy Wechsler.
In addition to washing your pillows, if you use make-up brushes to apply your foundation, eyeshadow, etc. these should also be washed once a week. Mix a little dawn dish soap with olive oil which will not only clean your brush and make them good for your face, but they will also condition the bristles and lead to a longer brush life. This will prevent excess oil build up on a tool that comes directly in contact with your face. (Yuck)
I used to have lots of acne too and only mary kay products kept it really clear, but like you, when i stopped acne was back. Through online research i discovered that many people have been recommended by dermatologists to use clearasil. It doesnt keep my skin 100% clear but close. I combine that with clean and clear persa gel for the few breakouts i get. I wash my face at night and morning. At night i wear a light face moisturizer, and durig he day i wear sunblock under my makeup. I do use st ives apricot scrub once or twice a week. If i notice my pores too big i just a little lemon mixed w a few drops of water and voila, theyre gone. For large pores u can also try egg white with a few drops of lemon at least once a week (i swear this works magic!). I also try home made masks that work for me. If just want to clear my pores and dead cells i mix baking soda, honey and lemon and create a consistency. If i want to feel my skin really soft and brighter i mix a tbspn of oatmeal oats with water and once theyre soaked i crush them and apply that to my face until it dries. I know many home remedies, my point is try a few and see what works best for you. But as for the cleanser, id say clearasil is the best one ive used and its cheap and very gentle with skin. Good luck! I just spilled some of my secrets
Hi! This is a very effective way of clearing away puffyness, and redness, from acne…Take and asprin and crush it up, so that its like flower. Then mix in with water so that it makes a paste. Then aply to face where acne is, and leave on over night, rinse in the morning.:-D
Try eliminating your dairy products for clear skin! (Milk, cheese, ice cream, butter–all of it!) for at least 3 weeks, I know it seems like a long time, but if you have had dairy all your life it takes awhile to clean it out of your system. Add healthy fats to your diet like raw nuts and seeds and avocados.
After I quit the treatments, my self-esteem took a total nose-dive. I was always fixated on people looking at my skin. When my flare-ups happened, I made sure to stay inside to avoid being seen. I stopped bothering with makeup because it wasn’t hiding it anyway. I was so envious of women with amazing skin. I would laugh at them for freaking out about one or two pimples and at the same time wish I were like them.
Spironolactone (Aldactone): This drug blocks androgen (hormone) receptors. It can cause breast tenderness, menstrual irregularities, and increased potassium levels in the bloodstream. It can help some women with resistant acne, however, and is generally well-tolerated in the young women who need it.
