taking away dairy product may not always be a good ideal either. unless you want to consider taking calcium pills and probiotices for the lack of active cultures in from your yogurt, which help you fight off fungus and/or provent them.
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.
I wana xpress my gratitude to the person who recommends potatoes.it does clean up my skin in 2days! i had acne since i was 15 n was nvr able to get rid of it till now. i tried potatoes as suggested n true enough,i saw the difference the very next day!!
Okay so this is really helpful because I have started to develop acne and I had no idea how prevent or get rid of them. I already know that the reason why is because I have clogged pores and because of all the dirt, so I wash my face every morning and night. But I wanted a more effective way to help cure my acne, but I didn’t want any of the acne products that actually make it worse, and don’t trust. Also they are so expensive! One can treatment one of the people I know previously ordered was ProActiv.
Glycolic acid is an alpha hydroxy acid that exfoliates the skin, helping to get rid of the dead skin cells that can clog pores. Just like salicylic acid, you can find glycolic in washes, peels, moisturizers, and serums at your local beauty store or drugstore.
What kind of potato do you use? Because I hope it works. I want something that works quick. I’m tired of waiting. I’ve had these bad scars for about 6 months now and nothing is working. I’m tired of waiting. What works fast?

I used proactiv for years too and I finally stopped after I found baking soda because I finally found something that worked better! When I apply it before bed, I put it on and let it dry for about 15 minutes, then light rub my face with soft wash cloth so I get all the ‘falling off pieces’ off and only a thin layer of baking soda is left on my skin. This way it doesn’t make a mess while sleeping. For face wash, I use Dr. Bronner’s Castile soap. It has tea tree oil in it which also helps to fight breakouts. I haven’t tried it yet, but I’ve been looking into the oil cleansing method, and want to give it a try soon. It involves using oil to wash your face instead of soap, so it does not strip the skin of natural oils.
-Home remedies do work for most. Home remedies are natural and contain no harsh chemicals. Try natural first. However for some (like me) a doctor is truly your only option. Most doctors will provide a cream and for bad cases a cream and oral antibiotic. Radical options are things such as laser therapy (used for moderate to severe acne), Accutane (used for severe cystic acne), and hydroquinone creams (used for skin bleaching). All of these have severe effects on your body. So make sure you make an informed decision on anything medical.
Try to stay as much natural as you can…drink lots of water and around 2 big cups of unsweetened green tea everyday..this treatment will atleast take a month to show off the results but if you will be patient enough then the acne will start to go within 2 weeks..!!!
You can find it in many drugstore products—just take a peek at the label. Dermatologist Dendy Engelman, M.D. likes the Benzac line. “It’s active ingredients are salicylic acid and East Indian Sandalwood oil—salicylic acid is a beta hydroxy acid that serves as a keratolytic agent (meaning it dissolves keratin). It unclogs pores by penetrating into the pore to dissolve dead skin cell accumulation and aids in shedding of the top layer of skin. East Indian sandalwood oil is a naturally occurring anti-inflammatory agent, which is new to the skin care scene. It soothes the skin and fights off inflammation that often accompanies breakouts.”
Witch hazel contains astringent tannins, which may treat acne by removing excess skin oil. It also has anti-inflammatory effects and can reduce redness and bruising. Witch hazel is often used alone or as a base for homemade acne remedies.
You deserve to have the beautiful, blemish-free skin that you were born with. Utilizing the natural acne solutions outlined above, you will not only cure your acne forever – you will acquire beautiful, glowing skin and vibrant overall health.

I would also suggest a wakeup and before going to bed rinse of your face with a cottonball or cottonpad dampened with witch hazel. It gently removes a lot of the oil from your skin without drying you out. Keep a small bottle of it with you during the day and it is great for a midday removal of any oil that may accumulate on your face.
You can try any one of the remedies mentioned below for treating cystic acne. Apart from that you have to eat a nutritional diet, follow good skin care regimen and few prevention tips for effective results.
I use both the ACV and baking soda together. I just started using a bentonite clay face mask every day now and it has been helping so much with old scars! I just put up a new post on it (you can find it from my home page). Hope they work for you! 🙂
I think lemon juice is only effective on mild breakouts only. But severe conditions it renders ineffective. We used to apply this method to my little brother’s breakouts and showed little improvement. Thanks for these informative articles on home remedies for acne.
