Me ish new to this....
yea well i just got acne a few days ago...well pimples...loads of em...uuggh anyways, its horrible yuk.. as all of you probably know...i read a lot of the suggestions and they seem pretty good...

my friends and my parents said that i should try these:

drink more water

clean your face every night, every morning, after excercising, after getting dirty....

Dont sleep too late

try to calm down, relax, and not get too stressed

lay low on the junky foods and stick to vegetables and fruits

to clean your face, use hot water and then cold water and a clean cloth or sponge or the such. and dont scrub hard with a lot of soap...that could damage the pores...

when cleaning, soak your face in warm water for about 10-20 minutes after washing with hot water...this cleans out the pores when they have opened cleaning out bacteria. You should rinse afterwards then wash with cold water.

my brother used proactive and it was effective for mild cases...*he wouldnt let me use it so i dont know how well it works for pimples like mine...

dont use makeup so much and dont use fancy lotions

another suggestion was from my aunt..she used lemons and acids or alchohol(only a little) after drenching her face in warm water...she washeed her face and applyed the acid and then left it there...you should do this before watching tv or doing hw or w/e, after a few hours or so, wash the acid off with warm water and rinse with cold...do again before sleep...but leave on during the night and wash off in the morning.

ii was also given the suggestion of using tea leaves in the process above. like press the tea leaves onto the pimples after soaking them in hot water for a few minutes until u can see the color of the water turning greenish...then gently pat onto the pimple...

tHese are some of the suggestions i got, there are more i think and i might have forgotten them...i'm trying them out too so i hope they bring you guys some luck ^__^ !!! Very Happy

im sorry if they dont work....umm well if not i suggest you go to a dermatoligist...i went to one she said to follow the usual rules of cleaning and drinking water and not applying makeup and keeping bacteria out...but im going to see if that works...if it doesnt, well im just going to have to go back...*sigh*

its alot to do but it WORKS!
i have been struggling with acne since i was
12 years old, i am now 21 years old and let me tell you it has been a living hell!!
But i have recently found the secret to clear skin... almost all naturally.
Please try this, the nighttime regimen takes a awhile to apply, but it really pays off!!

Morning regimen
1. Wash face w/ a facial cleaning towelette either ponds, oil of olay, or even store brand (i use walmart's equate brand)
2. Apply Seabreeze Astringent
3. Moisturize w/ oil free moisturizer (i use johnson and johnson baby bedtime lotion, it feels great!)
4. Put on makeup..etc...

nighttime regimen
1. Scrub face w/ st. ives apricot scrub for sensitive skin for 90 seconds
2. Wash face with Softsoap Antibacterial Hand Soap (i know it doesn't sound good for your skin, but it really works!! i promise)
3. Apply Seabreeze Astringent
4. Apply 100% Tea Tree Oil w/ a cotton ball (you can find this is the vitamin aisle w/ the herbs and things its inna brown bottle)
5. Apply and hydrocotisone lotion such as preparation H or cortisone-10 (i use cortisone-10)
6. Apply Clearasil Ultra Vanishing Acne Treatment Cream to spots
7. Apply Calamine lotion w/ a q-tip to spots

Leave on all night and repeat!!

I know the nighttime regimen is long, it takes me about 5 minutes, but it is really worth it. and when your acne clears up, don't stop doing this!! u may stop using the cortisone cream and the clearasil, and the calamine lotion, but continue to use the scrub, soap, seabreeze, and tea tree oil!!

Good luck!!!

Has your doctor ever prescribed antibiotics? If topical creams aren't working maybe you should look into oral medications.

I dont really think there is a way of getting rid of acne but if you dont worry about it as much it could lower the amount of stress which would help and what i just did to help is i washed my face then took a real steamy shower to sweat bacteria and soften my skin up then after that i washed my face again with a acne cleanser and then took ice and rubbed it over the bad places.. by freezing your face up a little it reduceds swelling but tonight is the first time ive done it so i guess its worth a try...

I will admit that I have not read all these pages but my suggestion to you is dump all junk food and eat healthy.......eat veges like boiled 'Silver Beet', tastes like crap but its good for you and its good for your skin, my mother swore by it and we ate the stuff every night with our meals and missed all the teenage pimple/acne years, all my brothers and I had nothing wrong with our skin's...good luck

though i just read this: http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,189546,00.html

9: Chocolate causes acne.

___ True ____ False ___ Who cares, it tastes good!

ANSWER: False. Stern says the link between chocolate intake and acne outbreaks has been broken. Another study, however, showed that stress can cause outbreaks.

Acne forms when the oil glands make too much sebum, a waxy substance that along with dead skin cells can clog pores. Bacteria grow and irritate the blocked pore given the red and swollen look to them. Too much harsh washing can further inflame the area. Doctors have many tools to attack and control acne these days. Some birth control pills even promise to improve acne.

eh...it's a good excuse for me to justify my chocolate binging. i've been using some natural/organic products on my face now and it seems to work well. juice beauty?

I'm 19 now and suffered from acne since I was 13, its now all cleared.

Mine was really bad, I tried X number of products, seen specialists etc, this helped but didn't get rid of it.

When I was 16 my grandad said theres 1 way to get rid of acne for good, ofc I was interested to hear what it was so i listened. Once i found out what he told me I couldn't do it, I thought it was disgusting.

Anyhow, after trying tree tree oil, and everything else I decided to give it a shot, and wow it did work, overnight I seen a massive improvement. Onr week later it was all gone.

Listen up, maybe this will work for you too!

1. Eat lots of green vegetables, cabbage works best but others work too. This gives massive iron intake.

2. Urinate into a cup

3. Dab on your acne areas (my whole face in my case)

4. Dry with clean tissue

Repeat 2-3 times

Do this 4 times a day

Also keep your bedroom clean, free of dust and bedsheets clean.

Talk to your pediatrician (just ask your folks to take you, and tell them why). Have him or her test you for allergies (it's possible) and listen to what the advice is. You're not asking to go to a dermatologist, just to your regular old physician. It could be allergies, diet, stress, hormones, cleanliness, possibly some combination of most or even all of these factors. Anyway, the doctor may have some tips for you. It's worth a shot.

Oh, and I'm 45 and still occasionally get acne (for me, it's stress-related but it also coincides with my menstrual period). Dry skin and acne is no fun whatsoever. Hang in there.

I'm in my teens and i've had acne for about 2-3 years now. It was really mild and weak until about 2 months ago, and then it freaked out for some reason (probably my hormones). Lately, its not the fact that I have pimples that bothers me, but its the fact that they create huge red marks around them. I can bear with it until I see my dermatologist for a scheduled appointment, but it is quite embarrassing and annoying. I'm considering going on minocycline and if that doesn't work accutane. However, I already have sensitive skin, so I would like to reserve accutane as a last resort drug (as it would make my skin very dry). I'm going to try the lemon dab thing for the redness, hopefully that will work.

To anyone who has mild acne (as i once did) and is interested, I find that washing with a nice mild soap or cleanser two times a day is very effective. One thing to remember is to not use too much, as too much of almost any cleanser will irritate your skin. Also, once cleansed, use clearasil on only the effected areas, three times a day. Once before school, once after, and once before you go to bed. You must use clearasil three times a day or it will have minimal effect and could make your acne worse. Clearasil may not fix your acne right off the bat, but it is great because it dulls the colour and stops the inflammation. Lastly, watch what you eat and drink lots of water. Some things may be reactive to your breakouts of acne. For example, most people have breakouts when they eat sugary foods. For me, chocolate will do it.

So, here are some steps you should take (summed up and added some extras) :

1. Wash twice a day.
2. Get some exposure to sunlight.
3. Dont touch your acne in any way shape or form unless to apply healing methods or cleanse (I do this without thinking sometimes).
4. Get lots of sleep.
5. Watch for reactive foods and drink lots of water.
6. Have confidence in yourself as it always plays a role in healing!
7. If your acne is really so bad that you cant control it this way seek the aid of a dermatologist as they can prescribe medication that will help!

Don't ever feel embarrassed and alone. Acne is a genetically manifested problem, and even if your parents and siblings don't have it its still possible for you. Often hormones are what cause breakouts and the general acne problem. There are many people that you can seek help from like your parents, your local doctor, and a dermatologist. My final piece of advice is to seek help from a dermatologist EARLY in the time you have acne (while its still mild). This is because if you don't take it seriously (as i didn't) in its early stages, you could end up making more of a mess of it in the future. I am a VERY clean person, I shower and wash every day, and still have acne despite all of that. If you wake up late before school and don't have enough time to put on your medication or cleanse your face, I suggest you cleanse and to your daily routine and be late for school, because even one hiccup in your routine may affect you severely.

And of course, acne is different for everyone, it effects everyone differently, and some things work better for others than they may for you. Its the reality anyone with acne has to live with, and try to cope with. I would probably be looking a lot better if I knew when I was 13 what I know at this point. Try new things, if they work, stick with them.
