You can also mix it up and do the vitamin c morning and night and drink the ACV in the afternoon. Just play with it. I would start out being aggressive with it and back off slowly until you get to a maintanence point.
Adding to this vicious cycle are several myths about acne. Some of the more popular myths include: greasy foods cause acne; chocolate causes acne; zits are caused by dirt; the more you scrub, and dry-up your skin, the less you’ll break out.
Potatoes have been applied to bruises and wounds for a century; the tubers are anti-inflammatory and may also be antiseptic, says Dr. Krant. Plus, Dr. Jaliman adds, potatoes contain niacin, which may help lighten acne marks. She suggests applying shredded white potato to the skin like a mask and massaging for 2 minutes.
honey– even though honey is the cure-all right now.. it never really helped me by using it topically; even though I dislike the taste, warm water mixed with honey is what my friend DRINKS daily to keep her skin clear
Charlotte is right about baking soda leaving your skins acid mantle exposed. I’m an Esthetician and utilize many of these myself, but some things need warnings. Such as using lemon juice. It makes your skin very photosensitive , likely resulting with hyperpigmentation(dark spots) if exposed to the sun. So it’s not the best in summer…and use some spf (there are natural sources as well) when using lemon juice on your skin. Also, coarse ground salt is waaaay too abrasive for your face. AND anybody with acne that is inflammed especially pustules (whiteheads) should not be scrubbing with most mechanical exfoliators! It causes more irritation and can spread bacteria from breaking open the pustule. Blackheads are okay to scrub! Use a chemical form when broken out with inflammed/pustule lesions . Lactic acid in milk….citric acid in citrus fruits….salicylic like in wintergreen. Chemical exfoliating just means the ingredients do the work instead of an abrasive material scrubbing! Overall, great tips….some just need precautions!
Benzoyl peroxide: This active ingredient attacks and kills bacteria and slows down the glands’ production of oil. Benzoyl works as a peeling agent, accelerating skin turnover and clearing pores. This, in turn, reduces the bacterial count in the affected area.
-Aloe Vera-this stuff helps get rid of scars and is a natural moisterizer so if any of the above dry out the face to much just apply this 5 min. after apply this on top of treatment, make sure it’s all natural
I’ve been reading a lot of posts, and I am amazed at how many people suffer from acne! I didn’t start getting acne untill I was about 18, I am now 22 and it doesn’t seem to be going ANYWHERE! Not only that, but it turned to cystic acne. So frustrating and discouraging. I tried ProActive, but it stopped working about a year into the treatment.

Topical retinoids are used in anti-aging efforts, and can speed up the rate of cell regeneration, aiding your skin in sloughing off the dead skin cells at a regulated rate. In some patients, retinoids can also serve as an anti-inflammatory agent, but they have been known to cause irritation when first used.

Witch hazel is extracted from the bark and leaves of the North American witch hazel shrub, Hamamelis virginiana. It contains tannins, which have strong antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties (38, 39).
Hormone fluctuations or imbalances. For example, when androgen hormones increase oil production rises. This often happens in teens and young adults suffering from acne, especially women experiencing PMS, irregular periods, pregnancy, early menopause, and other hormonal conditions such as poly cystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS).
Witch hazel may be applied directly to your skin using a cotton swab or cotton ball. You can also combine it with a carrier oil and other acne herbal remedies. You should not drink or inject witch hazel.
Acne occurs in any area of the skin with hair follicles, meaning that all hair-bearing areas of the skin are susceptible to acne breakouts. Aside from the most common area of the face, one of the areas that often develops pimples is the back. This form of acne affects more than half of all acne sufferers and can be not only an aesthetic concern, but also extremely uncomfortable and painful.
You can apply it twice daily. I would apply it once first just to see if your skin is sensitive to it. After applying, I wouldn’t wash my skin because it would wash it off. I drink warm lemon water in the morning to help detox.
In this study, sweet basil oil slightly outperformed holy basil oil in topical applications. Holy basil oil tea, or Tulsi tea, supports healthy blood sugar and hormone levels. As these two conditions are linked with acne, consuming herbal tea daily will help to balance hormones naturally, fighting acne from the inside out, making this one of the best cross-over home remedies for acne. Additionally, Holy basil tea can be applied topically to the skin as a toner. Either sweet basil or holy basil essential oils can also be added to the masks, cleansers or exfoliating recipes mentioned above.

Dear nikki, scars on the body parts can be due to unclean bed or bed spreads. Wash them once a week. Try this: put a few drops of eucalyptus oil in bathing water. You can also add a few drops of rose water. The result may be slow but will surely great.
The severity of back acne can vary. Grade 1, or mild acne, usually consist of a few blemishes and may include whiteheads, blackheads, and pimples. Grade 4 acne is severe and is characterized by many spots or cysts.

IM THINKING ABOUT TRYING IT FOR A WEEK. WASH YOUR FACE TWICE A DAY. hope this helps and some of these comments help. dont feel bad guys the older you get the better your face gets.
I can’t disagree with of this. I was almost half expecting some wild remedy. 🙂 When I was younger I had very bad cystic acne. I took tetracycline, minocycline, doxicycline, I used topicals like Retin-A, Cleocin-T, salicylic acid, benzoyl peroxide. I began using the Citrus Clear products on a regular, daily basis. Also I never touch my hands to my face, and the result has been acne free. NOt even an occasional pimple.
*Hope these helped. They are natural and not chemical remedies ( which tend to cause depression ) so they are healthier and more efficent to human’s delicate and special skin. Just remember, your acne doesn’t define who you are, and it doesnt rule you. Just take care of yourself and try not to stress. Jesus loves you 🙂
Either extract the garlic juice and mix it with 1 teaspoons or so of water, or mash up 2-3 cloves and let sit in water for about 10 minutes. Using a cotton pad, soak up the juice or garlic water and cover problem spots. If you don’t have a cotton pad or something similar to apply it with, the mixture can be a bit runny and hard to work with. In this case, substitute aloe vera gel for water. If you choose to ingest garlic, a clove or two a day should be enough. Prepare it however you like.
