A dermatologist can prescribe oral antibiotics as a quick fix for acne, but it’s not typically the first choice. While you might see immediate results, as soon as you get off of the antibiotics the acne will return.

Hey, this is the grossest remedy ever but OMG it works like So one day as I was walking I tripped and fell into some doggy doo( for real). I was a long way from my house, and I was covered in it (mainly my face). I ran to my house to go wash it off, when got home it dried up and was like a mask. When I washed it off my acne was literally gone, no blackheads, no pimples, NOTHING IT WAS ABSULETLY CLEAR. The doo was on for 20 -25 min. But I’m telling you it was magic and my acne hasn’t come back at all. TRY IT, IT REALLY WORKS.
A BHA product often cited includes salicylic acid, it must be between a pH between 3 and 4 to work. A BHA works to slough (to get rid of) off dead skin cells and encourage new skin growth. As a result, you may experience dry skin and scaliness around your acne, but this will dissipate over time as your skin begins to regenerate faster. Use this in a cleanser or spot treatment daily on the acne-affected areas of your skin.
Sodium bicarbonate, glorious sodium bicarbonate, swoops in and makes itself useful in too many ways to count. In the case of acne remedies, this fabulous substance (also known as baking soda) is useful thanks to its mild antiseptic properties, as well as its uncanny ability to fight off fungus and bacteria and dry up excess oil, all while exfoliating your skin via microdermabrasion and making it soft and beautiful. I know-I get star struck too now whenever I see a box of baking soda.
You have a good shot at getting rid of milder, non-hormonal breakouts without a prescription. Apply a treatment with 2 percent salicylic acid, which gently exfoliates, such as Benzac Acne Solutions Intensive Spot Treatment, twice daily all over your face, or one with benzoyl peroxide, which fights the bacteria that cause zits. (We like Neutrogena Rapid Clear Stubborn Acne Spot Gel, which has the highest concentration available without a prescription.) You can also switch to a daily cleanser with at least 0.5 percent salicylic acid, such as Philosophy’s Clear Days Ahead Oil-Free Salicylic Acid Acne Treatment Cleanser. Then, every time you feel the first tingles of a new zit forming, hit the spot with a dab of antibacterial spot treatment (like that Benzac one we mentioned). And be patient: It can take six to eight weeks before you notice a real change in your skin.

The sunscreen in the formula is key, too, because it helps prevent further inflammation.
