Tea tree oil is the world’s most commonly recommended herbal therapy for acne. Scientists at the Isfahan University of the Medical Sciences in Iran found that applying a 5% solution of tea tree oil to the skin for 6 weeks reduced, on average, the number of pimples by 47% and the number of blackheads by 40%.
Most people find themselves suffering from an acne outbreak at some point usually during their adolescence when they go through puberty. Whether it’s due to hormones or stress. Contrary to popular belief, pimples don’t necessarily mean your skin is dirty or unclean — in fact, over-cleansing can irritate your skin even more. However, hormones aren’t uncontrollable, and there are simple changes you can make to eliminate your breakouts. You can have your glowing, healthy, and pimple-free skin back in no time.
i have become so tomented by acne in such a way that i sometimes regret why God gave me a face the worst of it is that when i attempt to use any medication it only gets worst i am afraid if this pimples continues i might end up using a knife on my own face because i dont even look at people on thier faces anymore not even my friends
i am 30 years and i have had ance for many years nothing ever worked untill now. this is what u do in the morning step 1 use a facial cleansing buff and noxzema triple clean anti bacterial cleanser. scrub the cleanser on with the facial cleansing buff real good and wash off. step 2 use noxzema original deep cleansing cream rub onto face in a circiular motion for about 5 min rinse off. step 3 use noxzema anti-blemish pads. since this will dry your face out u palmers coco butter. at night u want to repeat the same steps except throw in a step between 2 and 3 so therefore u you will do steps 1-2 for step 3 use queen helene mint julep mint mask leave on for an hour then rinse off then use the anti-blemish pads for step 4 and then the palmers coco butter for step 5. believe me u will see improvement over night. u can get everything u need for this treatment at family dollar store

Rosacea is a chronic disorder that occurs primarily in the central portion of the face and usually includes redness, flushing and blushing, and bumps (papules) and pimples (pustules). Rosacea can also involve the eyes and even a bulbous nose.
So glad you are seeing good results! When I use it over night, I put it on and let it dry for 10 minutes and then gently rub off the excess flakes. So it is still on a little bit, but won’t make a mess. 🙂
Create a blend of cucumbers and oatmeal. The cucumbers help to reduce redness and fight off dark spots while the oatmeal soften and soothes irritated skin. Blend the two together in a food processor until it forms a paste, and then apply it to your skin for 15-20 minutes before washing off with warm water.
OMG .. I WAS HAVING ACNE PROMBLEM SINCE 5 YEARS..THEN ONE DAY I REALIZE THAT OUR SHIT CONTAINS AMMONIA(I.E NH3)…SO I APPLIED IT ON MY FACE AND WITHIN AN HOUR I WAS TOTALLY CLEAN AND FREE FROM ACNE PROBLEM … USE IT AND ENJOY 🙂
[…] of my acne. I really began trying everything to try to combat it and surprisingly found that natural methods worked better than chemical over the counter medications and even pharmaceutical medications. […]
I have a really bad acne problem at the moment (well I have since I was about 14 and I’m now 19), and it seems like I can’t get anything to work. I’ve tried numerous face washes, which all worked for about the first week of using them (mind you I was still a little bit bumpy on my forehead) but then I began to break out with more pimples.
Don’t use too many acne treatments at once; as, if one of them is successful, you won’t know which one it was. Instead, use single products at a time and work your way through different methods until you find one that sticks.
if you use toothpaste too much it will cause irritation and it will spread out to your whole face and break it out insanely bad. this is also cause from applying it incorrectly. you should only use it as a spot treatment at night. but it does work because it has humectants and baking soda in it and other abrasives acting as an exfoliant, also other antibacterial agents. what i’ve used and grown to appreciate it the use of watermelon rine, purified water, avacadoes and lemon juice. you want the watermelon to have some chunks and thickness to it and you want to rub it and apply it on your skin. you should leave this there until it’s almost dry and then wash it off with the purified water and then wipe your face down with a cotton swab of lemon juice. pat dry with a clean towel and mash the avacadoes and apply it evenly to your face as a moisturizing mask. leave until dry and wash off with the purified water. pat dry and leave your face alone! do not pick or itch or even touch your face, your hands touch many things throughout the day and it can spread to your face. and ladies, if you are on birth control that could help as well. vitamin c and zinc and vitamin e help, be sure to be healthy and stay away from grease and fatty foods. sometimes your body like to release it as a toxin in the form of acne. use light moisturizers and if you wear make up try and use a powder, if you use liquid foundation it will clog your pores and irritate the skin. even with some primers. becareful and always read the ingredients. but yeah theres my input. try it and see if it works for you.
Sad but true: Bacne happens. Those pores deep down your back get clogged, too. Luckily, Elizabeth Hale, a dermatologist in New York City, has helpful advice on how to treat (and prevent) backside breakouts. “One of the most common causes of back acne is sweaty clothes,” says Hale. “Hair follicles in the back can trap sweat and bacteria and cause breakouts, so the first thing is to get out of that sweaty sports bra after the gym.”

Use AHAs and BHAs. Alpha Hydroxy Acids are essentially exfoliants, sloughing off dead skin that tends to clog pores and cause acne. Beta Hydroxy Acids fight the acne bacteria from the inside out. If you can, try to find a body scrub with AHAs and wash with that scrub three times per week. After showering and moisturizing, wipe your back with BHA-medicated pads.

Pack a travel size facial cleanser and take a bathroom break once or twice a day to wash your face. If this isn’t feasible due to wearing makeup, make sure the makeup is “non-comedogenic” and wash it off promptly when you return home.
So, after looking at this website, I see that ACV is mentioned to stop hotflashes and cure cystic acne. I am running to the store now to get some. I will report back in a few weeks. Perhaps, I can kill two problems with one remedy!!!
Be gentle with your skin. Use gentle products, such as those that are alcohol-free. Do not use products that irritate your skin, which may include astringents, toners and exfoliants. Dry, red skin makes acne appear worse.
1. Acne is caused by dirt/dirty skin– Acne is not caused by dirt, poor hygiene, not washing your face and so on. Too much scrubbing or cleansing with harsh soaps or chemicals can actually irritate your skin and make the acne worse. If you “over clean” you can end up drying out your skin, which will then try and compensate by making that much more oil. A simple cleansing of the skin to get rid of excess oil and dead skin cells is all that is needed.
Yesyesyes!! the potato method does work.. i’ve been reading all kinds of tips from readers here and so far,only potato works best and fast.it’s cheap too! as im only a student i cnt posibly afford all those products to try on my skin. so out of curiosity and using my acne covered skin as the guinea pig,i bought those magical potatoes. leave it on overnight and wash it the next morning before i left for school. And what do u know?? Voila!! it kind of dried up my acnes n it looks smaller and not as red as the night before. i’m only on day 4 and i would say it’s 70% clearer now..hahahaha.. i cnt believe i didn’t try the potato earlier. and now imma ask my mom to buy more potatoes on her next grocery shopping trip!! so now i’m looking forward to getting a date with my new found clearer face! Yeeeeehaaaaaaaa!!!!:-P
I am 29 years old and my breakouts got worse in my early twenties. Thats when I started to use more makeup. I have since then tried every non-natural brand I could get my hands on. But nothing worked. Some of them worked somewhat in the beginning but months later just became worse. But I found that the less products I use the better it gets. Today I use raw unprocessed shea butter for the dry spots, almond oil for the less dry spots. My chin never gets really dry and thats the only area I do get a few breakouts now and then. To combat these breakouts I use breastmilk, and it works amazingly well. I dont know what to use when I stop breastfeeding though 🙂
No one factor causes acne. Acne occurs when sebaceous (oil) glands attached to the hair follicles are stimulated at the time of puberty or due to other hormonal changes. Sebum (oil) is a natural substance that lubricates and protects the skin. Associated with increased oil production is a change in the manner in which the skin cells mature, predisposing them to plug the follicular pore. The plug can appear as a whitehead if it is covered by a thin layer of skin, or if exposed to the air, the darker exposed portion of the plug is called a “blackhead.” The plugged hair follicle gradually enlarges, producing a bump. As the follicle enlarges, the wall may rupture, allowing irritating substances and normal skin bacteria access into the deeper layers of the skin, ultimately producing inflammation. Inflammation near the skin’s surface produces a pustule; deeper inflammation results in a papule (pimple); if the inflammation is deeper still, it forms a cyst.
Peter, please don’t give up & don’t do anything drastic!! I am so sorry for your agony & devastation!! Keep your chin up & know that it WILL get better!! Not overnight, but soon… just keep hanging in there!!

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. And Linkner warns, “While you’re on them, [you can get] yeast infections, nausea, upset stomach.”
