I'm 16 years old and I have the worst type of skin because it is sensitive and I get acne really bad. Ive tryed almost everything finally I tried this really cool remidy
first I splash hot water on my face to open my pores(not too hot)
then I take honey and wipe it all over my face
then I put tooth paste on top of the honey and take a rag any scrub in a circular motion
I let it sit for about five minutes
then I wash it off and pat dry my face and it looks much more soft and your face glows
Cut half of the lemon and paste on face leaving for 5mins....u feel a difference because it leave ur face feeling smooth
I've been using FlakeFree acne lotion with zinc and tea tree oil for many years. Even though I don't get acne often any longer, when I do feel one forming, I simply apply the zinc and tea tree lotion to the area on my face and usually it's gone by the next day before becoming noticeable.
Zinc and tea tree oil are both anti-bacterial, as well as anti-inflammatory. Tea tree also has penetrating qualities so it gets to the root of the bacteria quickly. (more...)
Take 20-40mg of zinc per day for a couple months. Doctor prescribe up to 50mg for pregnant women with acne bc they can't take prescription drugs. Zinc helps your body fight the bacteria that cause pimples. Probiotics help there as well.
Natural Face Scrub:
1 small jar (to contain the scrub.)
1 tsp. lemon juice (known for its cleansing and healing properties.)
1 tbsp. honey (known to brighten, smooth, and soften skin.)
1 tbsp. aloe (gel or natural form-known to soothe and cleanse sore, irritated skin.)
2-3 tbsp. sugar (a natural way to exfoliate the skin.)
When making your own remedies, look for avocados, oatmeal, berries, etc.
Stir these ingredients together to make a paste-add a bit if coconut milk, or essential oil to fragrance, and fill the jar. Can be stored in fridge up to a month or more. (more...)
one of the reason for acne is non-cleaning of stomach(intestine)
1. For this after waking up take one glass of water with juice of one lemon in it and drink it. After 5 to 10 min go to toilet. Ur stomach will be completely clean.
2. Use some lemon juice on ur face but slightly diluted. It will bring glow and charm to ur face.
I m an engg. Student and i follow this routine which is best suited for me.
Clidamyacin phosphate and Retin-A Micro are two things that i use for acne. and i've had no acne unless i skipped a day or two thinking i was cured of acne. I got great results and the clindamyacin stuff burns a little but i really only use Retin-A micro applied to effected areas sparingly before bed and after waking up i wash it off and put some more on before the day and my face will get a little oily around the nose throughout the day but id take that over acne any day. I just have to remember to like wipe my face if the sun's making a reflection on my skin. lol. (more...)
Run the shower as hot as you can stand it for three or more minutes on the affected areas. Move in and out of the stream if it gets too hot. When I did this it was two weeks before the pimples stopped coming back. 500 miligrams of Vitamin C daily helps to keep it away.
The toothpaste used for cleaning teeth can also be used to treat acne. Apply some toothpaste on your acne before going to bed. This will help reducing the swelling and within a day or two your acne will be treated.
