I am trying some remedies for acne prevention…likes benzoyl peroxide and selsun blue. i dont know how many days i can used that products for prevention..right now i have body acne for my chest and back…its really disappointed to my part…pls help me to get rid on acne….
Dr. Jenny Kim, a dermatologist at UCLA, told me that while the “bacterium is involved, everyone has P. acnes on their skin. Whether it’s a specific strains of P. acnes, or whether it’s an individual’s host immune response that’s the problem, we’re not certain. But recently, people have begun to think that modulating immune response is a better way forward in terms of treatment. The newer trend is to look at anti-inflammatory agents rather than only focusing on the antimicrobial.”
I tried 5-6 products to eliminate acne that had been with me for two years. I tried salicyclic acid, witch hazel, herbal remedies. I only used products that contained those ingredients because I have sensitive skin, and those ingredients are requirements if you have sensitive skin. The products that worked the best where Malin Goetz & Citrus Clear. The Malin products were more expensive, so I only bought their spot treatment, but I bought the Citrus Clear Sensitive Line (With the Wash and moisturizer) – and within two days, the acne was gone! I use the Citrus Clear stuff at the first sign of a breakout, and the Malin product maybe once every two weeks.
Thank you so much Claire! I am 13 and in 7th grade. I have been struggling with acne since 4th grade. I always made fun of people for them until I got them myself. They are so embarrassing! When ever I’m done using a product and it didn’t work, I trow it away, and frown at the trashcan like a weirdo. I will try these and see if they work out for me. Thanks again!
mmmkay… ive read all the tips here n i think im going to try the potato method cause it seems to be the cheapest n 100% reliable. will start using potatoes tonight so i’ll be back in these few days to update the results. crossing my fingers hopefully it really DOES work. im sick n tired of trying to find a cure only to be disappointed n have my acnes going from bad to worse so wish me luck with potatoes people!
Toothpaste will usually work if u apply it to the affected area… i am using the acne free system right now…the bad thing i guess it makes ur acne worse before it will get better becuz it is bringin everything to the surface. I will continue to use it for 2 weeks and if it doesn’t get better i am stuck so does proactiv really work?????
I have tried everything on the shelf and it is about come to more expenses than just going to a dermatologist do yourself a favor save your time save your money go to a dermatologist once they perscribe you something that works you can go to a regular doctor and they can perscribe the same thing, I lived with horrible acne as an adult for three years it was depressing and sometimes I evan called in on a job because I didnt want people to see me I would even hide from husband because I didnt want him to think I was ugly it got so bad that my son would tell me my face looked really bad and that really hurts because children will tell you the truth about anything when their little, do yourself a favor go to a dermatologist they will find out what works for you, I should have went alot sooner I didnt think I could afford it, but guess what I went one time thats all it took.:-):-;-)
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 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.
I am 25 and I had a baby nearly two years ago since then I have had bad skin. Prob due to hormone imbalance , its so depressing. But recently I have been using sudo cream it seems to dry the pimples up and help with the redness. I apply it after I wash morning and night. Be warned washing more than twice a day makes your oil glands on your skin produce even more oil so stick to washin twice aday.
People who have mild acne have a few blemishes. They may have whiteheads, blackheads, papules, and/or pustules (aka pimples). Many people can treat mild acne with products that you can buy without a prescription. A product containing benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid often clears the skin. This does not mean that the acne will clear overnight.
Rubbing tomato slices on scars is found to be effective in reducing the appearance of the marks or scars. This is partially due to the vitamin A and carotenes in tomatoes, which not only provide the red color but are also antioxidant compounds that can heal damaged tissues and promote the healthy re-growth of cells.
Step 3 BENZOYL PEROXIDE (Only at night) Wash off SA and run an ice cube over the affected areas, to cool and soothe (be careful not to freeze the skin!) Apply the BP (kept cold in refrigerator), but run ice cube across palm of hand, so product doesn’t warm up when you rub and apply to face (in identical manner as the SA and the GA). Leave the BP on for 10 minutes, and lie down with ice packs on the affected areas (opens pores, reduces inflammation, relaxes you). When you’re through, wipe off excess BP with a soft cloth. Allow the rest to sit overnight.
There are a lot of treatments that assure total acne removal but as we all know, if a treatment may be effective to one, it doesn’t mean that it can be effective to all. We have different skin types and severity of acne, so we have different
I was on Retin-A for years w/o much help, still broke out and it turned my face red. Using face wash w/o SLS has reduced my acne outbreaks to only 3-4 days out of the month when I’m cycling, all other times my face is pretty clear and I don’t have to apply harsh chemicals anymore.
Baking soda and sea salt are exfoliating agents that remove the dead skin cells, dirt and grime that get accumulated in the open skin pores. This debris attracts acne causing bacteria.The treatment should be done twice a day for a period of three months.
I have been taking turmeric and dandelion root internally and think they are helping. For me though I have to stay away from using proactive I have such sensitive skin and it leans more towards being dry.
We’ve all woken up to a pimple of Himalayan proportions, whether on your face, back or body. With these spots it’s all about using a direct treatment to conquer the problem. ‘Individual lesions [on your back] can be painful and have an abrupt onset and long lifespan. With body acne you may see more severe lesions such as cysts and nodules, or large whiteheads as pores become clogged from a build-up of cells that stick together and cause a plug. This can cause redness and pus to form,’ says Dr Nowell Solish.
Anyone suggest any herbs, vitamins that I should take to cleanse from inside. It’s very sad that at this age I’m still going thru acne issues and that too severe and painful… and I want to have babies but all medications interfere with it. Any help is greatly appreciated. All the best to everyone!
