Re: acne problem...

you should use tea tree oil, this is very helpful against pimples / acne i heard. I used it a few times, but just on single pimples cause I dont have acne!

Re: acne problem...

Acne affects loadsa teens, i ued to have outbreaks of it, which sucked . Best thing to do is to go to your local chemist and get a medicated facewash, it worked wonders for me. If it gets to bad then book an appointment at your local doctors and they will be able to help to .

Re: acne problem...

If you have tried lots of over the counter remedies then I would suggest you see your GP. They will be able to prescribe you with anti-biotics and the chances are high that they will significantly reduce your acne.

Re: acne problem...

Hi JayJay,

I wrote a new thread on this very issue of yours. It will help you find a real solution to clear your acne without all the products using chemicals.

Here's what I posted:

Most popular brands contain Benzoyl Peroxide, which is an antibacterial and bleaching agent. Benzoyl Peroxide in topical products can be irritating to the skin and can be annoying because it can bleache hair, clothing, and towels when using products that contain this ingredient. Some cleanser and repairing lotion both contain Benzoyl Peroxide. The first thing I learned is to use products that do not contain Benzoyl Peroxide.

Also, some brands contain an ingredient called Polyethlene, which is a physical abrasive. The problem with physical abrasive or exfoliates, is they can lead to increased irritation and redness with those who have acne. The best thing is to find a product that uses Salicylic Acid in their Cleanser, Toner, and Day and Night Treatment. Salicylic acid is a chemical exfoliate which helps remove and break up dead skin cells, penetrating the pore to eliminate the blemishes. Because salicylic acid is a chemical exfoliate, it decreases the risk or irritation when compared to the physical abrasive used in most products.

I look forward to see how good you look.

Re: acne problem...

How often do you clean your pillow cases? If you don't clean them often they will contribute a fair bit to your acne, you lay there all night rubbing grease, dirt and bacteria from your face all over it then sleep on it again the next night and the night after that and so on and so forth.

Sleep on each side of the pillow case a MAXIMUM of 2 times (only sleeping once on each side would be ideal) before cleaning the pillow case and I guarantee your acne will be significantly reduced.

Re: acne problem...

Try talking to a dermatologist. They can help you better, because whatever acne solution they provide you with will be a little more personal than just getting some random product at CVS :]

Re: acne problem...

Go to the pool for a while then lay out in the sun for a bit afterwards. The chlorinated water in addition to the sun will really help get rid of em.

I had pretty bad acne right before I went to the bahamas and came back completely clear despite eating/sleeping horribly for that week.

Re: acne problem...

My sister uses proactive and its helped her acne along with witchhazel (but it burns!) so use it sparingly! also-make sure you don't over-wash your face because that can make it drier and produce more oil to compensate.
