A range of OTC preparations is available from pharmacies and drugstores, usually in the form of gels, pads, creams, lotions, and soaps. Most of these are topical treatments, for applying directly onto the skin.

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! 🙂
Tight-fitting exercise clothing that traps sweat next to skin on the back and blocks pores may contribute to outbreaks. People should consider wearing loose-fitting clothes, especially during a heavy gym session.
In only a few minutes a day, in no more than 6 weeks–and often much sooner–your skin will be healthy, vibrant, and acne-free. Better still, when you follow the simple, inexpensive program outlined in this book, chances are your acne will not return. Even if it does, you’ll have no trouble eliminating all traces of it again promptly.
Rates appear to be lower in rural societies. While some research has found it affects people of all ethnic groups, acne may not occur in the non-Westernized peoples of Papua New Guinea and Paraguay.

You may need a combination of oral medicine and a cream or lotion. Don’t stop using your treatments if your skin clears. Stick with it until the doctor tells you to stop. This can help keep acne from coming back.
Try eliminating your dairy products for clear skin! (Milk, cheese, ice cream, butter–all of it!) for at least 3 weeks, I know it seems like a long time, but if you have had dairy all your life it takes awhile to clean it out of your system. Add healthy fats to your diet like raw nuts and seeds and avocados.
The underlying root of acne comes from within the body. The best way to make internal changes is through diet. For inflammatory acne, avoid hot and spicy foods. For oily, greasy skin, avoid fried and fatty foods. Use common sense when it comes to selecting foods that work for you. Aim for variety, with plentiful vegetables, some fruit and lean sources of protein.
The skin condition characterized by unsightly blemishes remains one of the most common disorders there is, with an estimated 80 percent of all people having outbreaks at some point in their lives. Acne doesn’t discriminate by gender or race, and although it’s most common in adolescents and young adults, it can appear at later ages, especially in women. There’s no way to prevent acne, there’s no cure and today’s over-the-counter remedies contain the same basic ingredients as those on drugstore shelves decades ago.
Get a laser treatment. That’s right – use lasers to kill off your acne. Many dermatologists now offer a treatment in which they use lasers to fire strong blasts of light to kill overactive oil-producing glands beneath your skin. This process can be painful, but has been shown to cut down acne 50% on average.
In addition to washing your pillows, if you use make-up brushes to apply your foundation, eyeshadow, etc. these should also be washed once a week. Mix a little dawn dish soap with olive oil which will not only clean your brush and make them good for your face, but they will also condition the bristles and lead to a longer brush life. This will prevent excess oil build up on a tool that comes directly in contact with your face. (Yuck)
