I have SUPER sensitive skin and I sometimes end up with “Burns” on my face from too-strong acne treatments. My skin is pretty oily, too. My dermatologist recommended the Citrus Clear products – OMG I love them! They literally work overnight and it doesn’t burn, sting or leave marks on my face like some in the past have.
Leave on for at least 10 minutes, or overnight. Reapply several times a day, washing face thoroughly after each time. Make sure to use a moisturizer afterwards as well if you feel like your skin is getting dry.

Popping or scratching any pustules- Popping or scratching any pustules will make the infection go deeper, further irritate the infected pores, and deepen the scar tissue. Avoid popping or scratching any inflamed or infected area.
My dermatologist at the time, Charles Crutchfield, M.D., of Crutchfield Dermatology in Minnesota, diagnosed me with cystic acne. Cystic acne is marked by painful inflammatory pimples caused by the blockage of oil deep in the skin.
Try using glycolic or lactic acid peel 30% concentration. For scars skin needs to be replaced with new skin and that’s what these light concentration peels do. They gently remove the top layer of your skin and scars with smooth out with each application. Use it once in 10 days since skin needs time to shed and grow back. Always test it on the back of your hand to find out your skin’s sensitivity towards it. It should be max applied to skin for 2 minutes. Then wash it off and massage with ice. Ice supplies oxygen and blood to the skin which are the key ingredients for healthy and problem free skin.
Garlic is also considered to be effective in the treatment of acne. This is due to the fact that it possesses anti-microbial properties. Garlic is also known to contain a high amount of vitamin C, which is also beneficial in treating acne due to its antioxidant properties. In order to use garlic in the treatment of acne, crush a few flakes of garlic and apply them to your skin in the form of a paste.
This type of zit is most likely the result of underexfoliating: When you’re not sloughing off dead skin cells effectively, they can pile up on the skin’s surface and block your pores, which leads to a buildup of oil and — ta-da! — those whiteheads.
Great article, and wonderful comments! First, I think you are spot on when you say that different things will work for each individual. In my experience, this seems to be the case with both coconut oil and baking soda. Those ingredients DO work wonders for some people, hence all of the testimonials all over the web. That said, there are many people that experience a worsening of their acne when using them, and while it might seem easy to presume that it is a ‘healing crisis’, I think that it might have more to do with the body’s reaction to the alkaline pH (in the case of the baking soda). The skin’s acid mantle should be around 5.5 (or slightly lower, but not too much lower), and baking soda is an 8-9… One of the reasons that skin ‘experts’ recommend toner, is to return the skin to it’s ideal pH after cleansing. I have seen clients break out from the baking soda, and also break out from the baking soda/toner combo.
Hey, I haven’t tried Proactive and I guess I shouldn’t judge it without trying it but I’ve heard that Proactive does clear acne but you have to keep on using it everyday otherwise, it won’t work. My friend uses Proactive and started using it and it worked great but then she stopped using it and the acne came back so that’s why I’m not using it but if it works for you, then I guess you should try it. But I’m sharing what I think.
Hi – I’m a 37 year old female wit hormonal cystic acne. I know I’m going to catch some heat for this BUT I have had cystic acne for the past 2-3 years. When I tell you that I tried EVERYTHING please believe me. I’ve spent so much money on acne products, I probably could’ve paid off my car! Two months ago, I decided to try an old remedy that I used when I was in middle school – rubbing alcohol. Yes, it can be damaging to the skin but understand that I exfoliate and moisturize daily. Sorry if this is TMI, but my monthly came on last night – the root cause of my acne along with my hair rubbing along my face when it is not in a pony tail. Two days ago, I felt two painful, itchy cysts developing. I attacked both of them with rubbing alcohol.
The obvious part: Wash your face twice a day, use some kind of toner, then, obviously, an oil-free, fragrance free face lotion. Fragrances can often irritate the skin, I found that out the hard way >-(
For anybody who has had MORE skin issues after trying the baking soda, baking soda exfoliates, which will draw out any impurities under the skin, so if you have more acne for a bit it is not a reaction… it is everything being eliminated through your skin… kind of like a healing crisis that will improve after a bit. You can lessen the frequency of using the baking soda (as a mask, scrub, etc.) to help ease the unpleasant symptoms, but don’t give up… just take it slower as the increased symptoms will improve as you clean out your pores :).
Ah, oranges. They taste rejuvenating and refreshing, and our skin may find them just as appealing as our taste buds do. Acne that is caused by bacteria and extra oil/dead skin cells clogging up pores may improve with the use of an orange peel face mask of sorts, thanks to the vitamin C, citric acid, and it’s astringent properties. The vitamin C is particularly helpful because it promotes the growth of new healthy cells, keeping your skin in better condition overall.
Apart from helping you bake scrumptious cakes, baking soda can come to your rescue in dealing with cystic acne. It removes excess oil from the face and also kills the bacteria causing the infection with its antibacterial properties (3).
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.

Get more Vitamin C. Vitamin C can improve the rate of healing. It does this in part by helping to make collagen, an important protein used to repair skin tissue, cartilage, blood vessels and heal wounds. You can take 2 to 3 doses of Vitamin C for a total of 500 mg a day. You can also add vitamin C-rich foods to your daily diet. Good natural sources of vitamin C are:
Biore, not sorry for the confusion. Also, are all animal products bad? ‘Cause I had apple juice, a cheese bagel, and some eggs with cheese this morning. I’m going swimming in a pool later. I’ll keep you uodated on what works for me! All I used to do was pop them and the acne scars would eventually fade but I guess that’s not the best, and I’m putting aloe and lemon juice on the scars to hurry up the fading process. I tried Baking Soda with water last night and it was just messy. I’ll be back!
Last year, bike sharing took off in China, with dozens of bike-share companies quickly flooding city streets with millions of brightly colored rental bicycles. However, the rapid growth vastly outpaced immediate demand and overwhelmed Chinese cities, where infrastructure and regulations were not prepared to handle a sudden flood of millions of shared bicycles. Riders would park bikes anywhere, or just abandon them, resulting in bicycles piling up and blocking already-crowded streets and pathways. As cities impounded derelict bikes by the thousands, they moved quickly to cap growth and regulate the industry. Vast piles of impounded, abandoned, and broken bicycles have become a familiar sight in many big cities. As some of the companies who jumped in too big and too early have begun to fold, their huge surplus of bicycles can be found collecting dust in vast vacant lots. Bike sharing remains very popular in China, and will likely continue to grow, just probably at a more sustainable rate. Meanwhile, we are left with these images of speculation gone wild—the piles of debris left behind after the bubble bursts.

If using baking soda as a scrub or mask, rinse with plain water, then rebalance pH by using an acidic (like salicylic, for example) commercial toner, or a diluted preparation of other suggestions on this list, such as apple cider vinegar or lemon juice.
