As you go about treating acne, it’s important to remember that all acne isn’t the same. What works really well for one kind of pimple might not work at all for another. You want to use the type of acne treatment that targets your particular kind of acne. If you use the wrong treatment you might even make your breakouts worse. The first step in how to get rid of acne is understanding what kind of acne you have—read on to learn about blackheads, white heads, small red bumps, hormonal acne and cystic acne, and how to best treat each.
You can also make your own at home. Simply mix a teaspoon of rhassoul clay with warm water. If your skin is oily, add 1/4 teaspoon green tea leaves to the clay. For skin redness, mix in 1/4 teaspoon chamomile tea leaves. Cleanse daily with any of these clay combinations.
Some oral antibiotics can cause birth defects. Women on these antibiotics who are sexually active must use contraception. They need to make absolutely sure they do not become pregnant either during treatment or for one month after treatment.

Hi, I have blackheads and pimples on my chin, nose, cheeks and forehead. I have tried over 10 different products but nothing. Right now is my second time using proactive but not many results. I have had acne for 5 years. Any suggestions??
I highly recommend using Cetaphil for a cleanser in the morning and evening. I have been using it for 20 years and love it! I graduated from the Aveda Institute of Beauty & Wellness where I specialized in skin, waxing, and make-up etc…, but I still continue to use my Cetaphil cleansing bar and Cetaphil Moisturizing cream. You can purchase it at almost any store. Cetaphil is non-comedegenic, fragrance free, mild, non-abrasive, harmless to the skin, and inexpensive. If i ever get a pimple it is usually gone the next day or shortly after I cleanse with Cetaphil. The moisturizing cream I use is the thick emollient in a tub, mainly for the winter and it works awesome after cleansing. I also tested the moisturizer and it is 100% PH balanced meaning its completely balanced and not acidic nor alkaline. If you have oily skin always use a foamy wash or a cleanser for sensitive skin with acne, such as cetaphil. If your skin is on the dry side use a cream cleanser. Always make sure its fragrance free too. Ladies, wash your make-up brushes at least once a week to prevent acne. If you see a film that creates little lines expecially on forehead, then you should start drinking a lot of water and wear a hydrating mask a couple times a week. Wash your pillow cases and wipe your cell phones! Never scrub your face or you will start to break down the barriers of your skin. That’s all for now. 🙂 hope this helps
In 2007, a study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that glycemic load can greatly affects acne. 43 males with acne, aged 15 to 25, were separated into two groups. For twelve weeks, one group ate a diet that was 25 percent protein and 45 percent low-glycemic carbohydrates. The other group ate carbs without any control of glycemic index, resulting in a higher glycemic diet. At the end of the study, the acne had decreased in the low-glycemic group by almost twice the rate of the high-glycemic group! (17)
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 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.
Apply a mask prepared with tomato (rich in vitamin A & C that reduces the pores), oatmeal (removes excess oil from the pores), lemon (natural astringent that removes the excess oil from the pores of the skin) and mint (anti-inflammatory that reduces the pain).
The first step in treating your skin is figuring whether you are in fact dealing with hormonal acne. One clue is where the blemishes appear: “Adult women most commonly suffer from hormonal acne on the lower third of the face and jawline,” explains Joshua Zeichner, MD, director of cosmetic and clinical research in dermatology at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City. Another typical indicator is flares that happen before or during your period.
Salicylic acid is another common active ingredient that helps remove excess cells that trap sebum and bacteria inside pores. It can also cause redness and dryness, especially on sensitive skin. Start with a product containing 0.5 percent to 3 percent salicylic acid.
In addition to often causing flaky skin and lips, isotretinoin can cause birth defects, like heart, ear, eye, and nervous-system abnormalities. Any woman who takes it is required to use two types of contraception and to sign a consent form stating that she will not get pregnant while taking the treatment. “Isotretinoin prescriptions are regulated by the government through a program called iPledge,” says Zeichner. “Patients sign consent forms and are regularly monitored throughout treatment.”

Echinacea is traditionally used to speed wound healing and prevent colds and flu, but its antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties can help with acne as well. Use echinacea tea as a daily face wash by soaking a cloth with it, or put a few drops of tincture on a cotton ball and dab it on blemishes.
