All through high school and college, I searched for years trying to find help, but nothing seemed to work. It didn’t seem fair because for some people, they improved with age. This is because acne it seems is sometimes just a temporary occurrence due to changes in hormones, but for me and many others that isn’t the case!
Garlic has well known antibiotic properties making it an excellent treatment for pimples and acne. Peel and mash eight cloves of fresh garlic and apply to face avoiding the area around the eyes. Leave on for about 15 minutes and wash off with a warm cloth. ;-);-);-)
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! 🙂
Shower often. Although you may want to keep your water bill down, showering regularly helps to keep oil production low, kill bacteria, and rinse away dead skin cells. Wash your entire body with a mild cleanser and use shampoos that limit oil production in your hair. Be sure to always shower after exercising to remove the dead skin cells your body has sloughed off through sweating.
Depression: Many people who have acne suffer from more than low self-esteem. Acne can lead to a medical condition called depression. The depression can be so bad that people think about what it would be like to commit suicide. Many studies have found that teens who believe that they have “bad” acne were likely to think about committing suicide.
Isotretinoin is an oral retinoid that is very effective for severe nodular acne, and moderate acne that is stubborn to other treatments. One to two months use is typically adequate to see improvement. Acne often resolves completely or is much milder after a 4–6 month course of oral isotretinoin. After a single course, about 80% of people report an improvement, with more than 50% reporting complete remission. About 20% of patients require a second course. Concerns have emerged that isotretinoin use is linked with an increased risk of adverse effects, like depression, suicidality, anemia, although there is no clear evidence to support some of these claims. Isotretinoin is superior to antibiotics or placebo in reducing acne lesions. The frequency of adverse events was about twice as high with isotretinoin, although these were mostly dryness-related events. No increased risk of suicide or depression was conclusively found. Isotretinoin use in women of childbearing age is regulated due to its known harmful effects in pregnancy. For such a woman to be considered a candidate for isotretinoin, she must have a confirmed negative pregnancy test and use an effective form of birth control. In 2008, the United States started the iPLEDGE program to prevent isotretinoin use during pregnancy. iPledge requires the woman under consideration for isotretinoin therapy to have two negative pregnancy tests and mandates the use of two types of birth control for at least one month before therapy begins and one month after therapy is complete. The effectiveness of the iPledge program has been questioned due to continued instances of contraception nonadherence.
Zinc is known to possess anti-inflammatory properties, which are considered to be helpful in the treatment of acne. These supplements combat the inflammation that is present in the affected areas of the skin. As a result of this, the problem of acne is brought under control. Within a short span of time, the scars left behind from the acne also start diminishing. Zinc supplements must be taken on a daily basis in order for them to be effective in the treatment of this condition. It is highly recommended that you speak to your physician regarding the dosage of zinc that suits your body. These supplements generally do not cause any major side effects in the body, but can trigger mild side effects such as stomach upset or nausea, when consumed in large doses. If you do not want to consume a zinc supplement, you could easily meet your daily needs of zinc by consuming foods such as pork, chicken, peanuts and legumes.
Neem oil should be diluted with water or a carrier oil, such as coconut oil or olive oil, before application. Neem oil soap is a great way to try the herb. Look for it at your local natural health store. Be forewarned that neem oil has a strong odor that many people find unpleasant.
Aloe, known for its burn-relieving properties, can promote healing, fight infection, and even reduce scarring. Scrape the gel from an aloe plant out with a and apply to acne. You can also buy aloe gel from health-food stores—just make sure it’s pure aloe, with no added ingredients.
3. Get a blood test! Test your blood for vitamins and nutrients to make sure you aren’t deficient in anything. Here are a few main ones to make sure you include; vitamin A and zinc. Also, it may be a good idea to check your thyroid and your hormone levels (progesterone and testosterone).

Isotretinoin is a powerful drug that’s used to treat the most severe cases of acne. Your doctor may recommend this drug if you have severe acne that doesn’t get better with other medications, including antibiotics.
Acne can be a symptom of toxic overload in your system. Your skin eliminates toxins and acne is one way your body releases toxins. You can do things to help your body eliminate toxins in other ways, which will reduce the acne outbreaks.
Conditioners and other products can rub off on your face and back, especially during the summer time when tank tops are common. Always use body wash or exfoliant after rinsing out your conditioner in the shower. This will ensure that no thick product remains on your skin.
Using this method (along with removing ALL dairy from my diet, removing almost all processed and packaged foods as well) I noticed that after three days, I had no new pimples forming. I also noticed that my black head started to not look so black. Within two weeks, all the acne on my face was gone, the acne scars were still there, but they looked a little smaller. Now, almost nine months later, I still get the occasional pimple just before my period, but the pimple is a white headed pimple and not the cystic acne I was getting before. I’ve noticed my skin glows, I’m thirty-three and all the fine lines around my eyes have disappeared, and my skin tone is much more even.
