Elle and Aya!! I have had cystic acne since puberty… Its been getting better (im now 21) but still comes around every week or every other week.. And when it hits it hits hard and everywhere 🙁 I have been traveling with my parents overseas since I was pretty much able to walk…. Hawaii, new zealand, australia, europe, carribean islands, I live on marthas vineyard.. Which I guess is overseas.. Mexico and costa rica too! My younger sister has PERFECT skin… Maybe an occasional whitehead… Me, being older have traveled more than her and to certain countries she’s never been! I will try googling different search terms that correlate with foreign countries and cystic acne.. Maybe its a bacteria/skin disease one can literally catch from the water out there that the natives are immune to! Who knows… But this is fascinating…. I take ACV internally on occasion, but am going to use it as a toner RIGHT NOW! Thank you all! And also… Does anyone have any good alternatives to A____ tablets? ones without artificial sweeteners? I also have bad constipation… The best thing for me (because laxatives are terrible for you) are stool softeners… Docusate sodium (dulcolax makes the most effective ones) I eat oatmeal every day and occasionally use the leftover on my face! Great for drying up whiteheads and helping draw up the cysts. Maybe ill mix some ACV with plain yogurt and oatmeal! SO GLAD I found this site! I’ll be posting more of my remedies while using ones I find here as well!
Method: Put your oatmeal up for cooking as you normally do. As it is cooked, add honey to it. Let the mixture cool down. The mixture may tend to become dry and stiff upon cooling. If it becomes dry, try adding a small amount of honey again. This will make it a bit runny. After that, massage the mask onto your acne. Let it dry for 20 minutes. Use lukewarm water to wash off the mask.
“Banana peel applied with the inside layer against the skin has been a reported cure for plantar warts on the soles of the feet, so there’s reason to think it may be helpful applied to pimples as well,” says Dr. Krant. Gently rub the peel over the affected area for 5 to 10 minutes, and then wash your face.
Im a fairly confident person but recently my acnes got worse and its horrible when your having a conversation with someone and you can see their eyes stray from your eyes and instead they look at nice big spots instead lol.
Not only can the sun prolong PIE appearance, it can lead to premature aging including sun spots, fine lines, and wrinkles. UV damage is DNA damage. Sunscreen is an anti-aging must for all ages young and old–preventing future skin cancer. It the fountain of youth in a bottle. Prevention is better than treatment. There is no such thing as safe tanning, as tanning is the result of sun damage.
Various acne remedies at home can be used quite easily, and the results seen are often positive, with minimal side-effects. However, it is always best to consult a dietician or dermatologist before opting for any home treatment, as overuse or contraindications with other medications and treatments are possible. It is also best if you consult a physician if the redness and pain associated with acne takes a turn for the worse and does not subside.
okay guys!!! try this one: find neem leaves from somwhere, mix it with turmeric powder. apply it all over the face, keep it for 20 min and wash ur face with cold water. after washing pat dry ur face an steam. after steamin again wash with cold water. i really works for all the skin types.:-D good luck every one:-D
get a plastic container and pour like 1/3 cup of baking soda in it, then put in hot water (not too hot) in with it. dont put too much water in the container or it will be too runny. get enough water so its a slick paste and put it on your face. scrub deep so it gets in your skin. the baking soda solution will lessen the redness on your face and help decrease out breaks. 😀 i just tried this and i do it in the shower, it helps alot. hopefully it will keep working and i hope it works for you:-P good luck

Have started drinking ACV regularly since finding this site and so far it appears to be working! (fingers crossed! ). I am totally ecstatic and hope that it continues! I bought the store’s supply of ACV! Lol.
Drink lots of water. Although we’ve all heard to drink eight glasses of water a day, there isn’t a set amount on how much water you should consume. Water helps to detoxify your body and purify your skin, so make sure you drink water often throughout the day.
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.
Drinking green tea regularly will help your body rid itself of any present toxins. Removing toxins will allow for faster healing times in any infected areas. As well as removing toxins, green tea is high in anti-oxidants and catechins which will help promote healing from the inside and reduce inflammation and redness.
Hi, Well I hope this helps anyone that has used every thing the doctor has given them…all the creams the, meds that cost so much! Then plus the extre cost of seeing the skin doc. to begin with. When its usally quite obvious to the primary doctor that you have acne or worse. Anyway, what has worked for my husband for 15 years who was told he has nodularal acne. The med. he is on is called Bactrum it costs only $18 a month! It Doesn’t cause you to want to kill yourself, it dosen’t make your fasce turn red a peel off so u look worse to begin with, and etc, etc… So when my son got acne at age 13 the dr. tried to put him on all the risky meds to his health and make his face look worse creams and I tokd him I wanfed the genric for Bactrum. He said no because he being a G.P. didn’t usally use that med. so I told him olease just try it for one month even an half of a pill and see what a change it makes. My son is 16 now and looks GREAT!!!!! Even the scars from when he was using pro active are gone! Just good old soap and water & light a moisterizer. As for a home tip for the little bumps on forhead and cheeks those are casued by hair. Pull your hair back EVERYNIGHT with a headband off whole fore head and face. Even if not sweating, its the oil in your hair that causes it. For the break out in the hair inline the apricot scrub wriks really, really well. but nuse before you wash hair because it will leave grit. :-D:-D:-D:-D
