“Dr. Terry Dubrow’s wife, Heather Paige Kent, star of the CBS drama That’s Life, awoke one morning, appalled. “Terry, look at my face! I’ve totally broken out. I’m due on the set in three days. Is there anything you can do?”
In one study, 43 people followed either a high- or low-glycemic diet. After 12 weeks, the individuals consuming a low-glycemic diet had a significant improvement in both acne and insulin sensitivity, compared to those eating carb-dense foods (62).

Thank you for this! My husband has started making kombucha, he gracefully searched for jars with dispensers like you would see at weddings so I didn’t have to mess with the mushroom. I’ve been researching GSPS and how the gut affects our mood. I find that the probiotics in strong kombucha make a world of difference. We haven’t been on it for more than a week so I do not know what changes on my face will occur.
Kimmy, try soaking your face with ice water at night, then (this sounds gross but its effective) when you wake up in the morning pat salva on your pimple, stop wearing makeup until your wedding day, and pray.
Papaya is known to possess an enzyme named papain, which is helpful in treating minor wounds as well as conditions such as acne. In order to treat acne by using papaya, you can make a paste of the fruit and apply it to your skin. This will help in treating as well as preventing the recurrence of acne as it gets rid of the lipids from the skin, thereby preventing the clogging of the pores.
I use the Mary Kay Miracle Set, and I tell you, it really is a miracle! I used to have really oily skin on my forehead and used to break out a lot in that area, but I noticed a huge difference after using the Miracle Set for just a week! It really does work!
“The combination of these three over-the-counter products — a sulfur-containing cream (try Sunday Riley Saturn Sulfur Acne Treatment Mask), a benzoyl peroxide cream (try Clearasil Daily Clear Acne Treatment Cream), and a mild cortisone cream (try Cortizone-10 — usually proves very effective when mixed and applied two to three times a day over the cyst for seven to ten days. The cyst will start to significantly reduce in size after two to three days.” — Leyda Bowes, the medical director at Bowes Aesthetics in Miami
-Straight lemon juice, on the other hand, is TOO acidic. It’s a common skin irritant and can cause acid burns on your skin. Not only does it annoy your skin, but it can make you more susceptible to sun damage. Sun damage doesn’t just cause premature aging, but it can wreck your moisture barrier and, once again, make it easier for acne to grow.
Lori! Your tips have helped me improve my skin sooo much! I first found your website in may of this year, when I was suffering with 6 months of chronic insomnia before my wedding (still don’t know what caused it…stress, work, moving and traveling a ton?) but your tips about magnesium and body brushing helped a lot! I don’t have insomnia anymore. I had terrible skin as a teenager (after reading your blog, I now know so many things that could have triggered it! At the time I was baffled, because I thought I ate healthy, played tennis and ran every day, and was thin…but I was wrong! I definitely did not get enough of the right nutrients. My acne has been better as an adult, I’m now 25, but still not great. HOWEVER 2 weeks after following your tips, especially the cod liver oil, probiotics, and balancing the PH of my face, along with natural makeup, my skin has NEVER looked better!!! THANK YOU!! Even the couple of acne scars I was left with are fading! Coconut oil makes the skin on my face break out, so I use grape seed oil. My favorite mask is cinnamon and grape seed oil, I gently rub that over my face for a few minutes, and it gets rid of my blackheads and increases my face circulation. I follow it with witch hazel, though I want to try ACV now! Once again, thank you soooooooooo much! I also use baking soda and castile soap for pretty much everything in the house! My husband thinks I’m crazy, haha, but I got his mom hooked on your blog too. I have a long way to go, but you’re an amazing of Caution: Home remedies are only recommended for mild acne scars and if you have a secondary infection or deep scars, you should consult a qualified dermatologist before setting out on an alternative treatment regimen. Apart from the natural goodness of home remedies, a nutritious diet can go a long way towards healing scars from acne.

Keratosis pilaris (KP) is a common skin disorder in which small white or red bumps appear around hair follicles on the upper arms, thighs, buttocks, and cheeks. The cause of KP is unknown. There is no cure for keratosis pilaris, and the condition may resolve on its own. Gentle exfoliation, professional manual extraction, chemical peels, and microdermabrasion, along with topical products, are the best treatments for this condition.
Cystic acne is known for causing scars due to being in the deeper layers of the skin. Cystic acne damages the collagen that is found in this area and scarring will form. There are three main types of acne scarring.

Apply a small amount of white toothpaste on the affected area before going to bed. The toothpaste will reduce the swelling and dry out the acne. Within a day or two, you should see significant improvement.
ugh i know right :/ i have really bad acne right now because of proactiv….i actually watch this girl called, Bubzbeauty, on youtube…and she has tons of home-remedies for acne. The one i think is the most affective and it’s made my skin SOOOO much better, is by using oatmeal. You basically take plain, dry oatmeal (about one spoon is enough) You make the oatmeal wet by using water, then you have to apply the oatmeal to your face, kind of rubbing it in and you can leave some traces of the actual oatmeal on your face. (Warning..it’s kind of messy ;D) But, just let it dry and watch some TV, while waiting. Afterwards, just wash it off, and keep doing it everyday! Hope this helps 🙂
