Acne skin tips

Common Questions and Answers about Acne skin tips


Avatar f tn There is no one right answer for everyone. Tips for dry skin won't help oily skin, and vice versa. Is there a specific issue you are trying to address with your skin care routine?
Avatar f tn Try to follow these tips for at least two weeks and you should see that your blemishes reduce.
492921 tn?1321289896 I suffered from acne from age 15-19, it was miserable... and I get it sometimes now (I'm almost 24 weeks pregnant)... I didn't notice any major skin changes after my m/c last year but it makes sense. Your hormones may still be a little off. Acne usually doesn't start in your mid-late 20's; if you have it it's usually temporary. So don't worry about having it permanently or anything.
Avatar n tn is she oily? to much skin oils being let out of the skin cause acne, to avoid that sometimes its best to stay away from foods that cause tyhe skin to release oil like fish, the omega3 does it. other people have dry flakey skin cause they dont get their bodies to produce enough oils, in that case just buy some omega3 pills at the pharmacy. taste like vanilla, pills kinda big need to be taken with food, but no side affects..
Avatar n tn Acne during pregnancy is normal although I don't have any tips on what to do. I don't think there is much since its cause by hormones.
9889855 tn?1412479178 I was wondering if anyone has any tips for acne. I broken out pretty much everywhere. Mainly my chest. Does anyone have any tips for body acne?
Avatar f tn Do not use proactive. It makes your skin dependent on it and when you stop your acne will come back much worse. I use a wash cloth and gently scrub my face with soap. Dove and Olay work the best for me, don't over dry the skin. Then I pat dry and put Clean and Clear Persa Gel, works wonders! If my face gets dry, which it does every time the season change, I use Burt's Bees Res-Q Ointment. Burt's Bees also works beautifully on vanishing past acne scars.
Avatar f tn In my opinion, Fresh fruits help to tone your skin. Eat fruits more. Apply milk cream to skin and wash after 15 minutes. In addition, you can apply the mixture of carrot and tomato grinded. Applying coconut oil before going for bath. Leave for ten minutes. Then use soft soaps for bathing. These will surely improve your skin tone and beauty. Do these regularly!
Avatar n tn Im frustated at the acne on my face. i didn't have it that bad bujt now its all on my fore head and chin. I wash ,y face twicw a day with Dawn soap. Ive tried everthing in stores. literally. I was even using proactive but it wasnt working. So I ordered the stronger solution of Proactive snd im waiting for it to come in. Ive tried the eye drop thing to make the redness gp away but it didnt. I tried tooth paste but it didnt work.
Avatar f tn Just wondering if the drug Spironolactone (100-150mg daily) can contribute to premature aging of the skin due to its diuretic effects? It's helped my cystic acne & hirsutism significantly, but I'm concerned about premature aging. I'm hoping just increasing my water intake might compensate for any potentially ill effects my medication might be causing to my skin due to the water loss. I'm prescribed tretinoin 0.
Avatar f tn My Husband since I first got with him has always hated his skin he gets acne breakouts all the time, and now He has started to get boils or some type of bumps of his thigh. He has tried proactive, Green tea tree oil, and sea breeze. Yet all those things seemed to make his issues worst and they stayed bad and never seem to be clearing anything up so he stopped usage. He is tired of these skin issues and feeling very insecure because of them.
Avatar f tn for my acne to go away, but at the end of the treatment (end Oct.) I was acne free. It stayed this way for 3 weeks, then all of a sudden my skin started getting really oily and my hair greasy after not even a day. (My hair used to get greasy quite quickly, but not like this!) Now my face is full of pimples and blackheads again. My dermatologist gave me a special cleanser to use 3 times a week, and he said I should otherwise use just water and try to do as little as possible with my skin.
Avatar f tn I'm 15 weeks pregnant and I have been getting horrible acne. Any tips or tricks to help my skin. I need to know what will help and be safe for my baby as well.
1248474 tn?1269377680 Hi, for bad acne, antibiotics like Erythromycin, clindamycin and tetracycline are used usually in conjuction with benzoyl peroxide. Sometimes retinoids like Tretinoin, adapaline, retinol and isotretinoin are also used. For very severe acne like cystic acne isotretinoin is the only cure. Yes, Accu' is good as well.
Avatar m tn Its moderate but it really bugs me. I would classify my skin as oily and can become dry after using acne products. For a little under a month I used Tea Tree Oil and it seemed to lessen the acne some but not completely. But I still have a few larger pimples and around 10 little whiteheads and lots of blackheads,my acne is located on my chin,nose,and forehead. So today I started this Acne Free System with 3 steps all using benzoyl peroxide(cleanser,toner,repair lotion, and blemish terminator).

1381451 tn?1288095766 m just wondering why my acne is not gone by now, I have been using different acne perscriptions for over three years and I want it gone. Any tips or answers would be great.
Avatar f tn Hi everyone! I'm almost 20 years old and I've been battling with acne since I was 13. Over these past 7 years, I've tried every (and I mean every) acne system on the market. Proactiv, Neutrogena, Clean&Clear, Murad, Zenmed even prescription medications such as Minocycline, tazorac, and birth control. NOTHING WORKED! And on top of it, from being a habitual "picker," I have some gnarly scars from my acne. My acne has only been concentrated on my forehead and mouth area.
Avatar f tn I have been havibg itchy skin all over my body it is soo frustrating and drives me crazy. I apply shea butter, use otc corticosteroid aloe cream doesnt help.
Avatar f tn Hi, Acne vulgaris (commonly called acne) is a skin disease caused by changes in the pilosebaceous units (skin structures consisting of a hair follicle and its associated sebaceous gland). A blackhead (medically known as an open comedo, is a yellowish or blackish bump or plug on the skin. A blackhead is a type of acne vulgaris. It is caused by excess oils that have accumulated in the sebaceous gland's duct.
304970 tn?1331425994 re having such a hard time w/acne. I suffered from severe acne from age 16-19 and it was really difficult. I still get bad breakouts at 25 and, now that I'm pregnant, things aren't any better! I can tell you a few tips that I used back in the day, and that I use now: - Always use a clean towel to pat (don't rub) your face dry after washing. I keep a stack of clean washcloths on the counter just for drying and use a new one every night. - Don't wash more than twice a day.
Avatar f tn I see posts for acne remedies but I dont have acne atm. Instead I have insane amounts of zits. And they are huge! What are good remedies for those?
2085202 tn?1373199740 It looks a hell of a lot better and noticed more girls look at me in a more positive way and feel alot more confident believe it or not with the make up on but now the make up is causing even more acne. Any tips or remedies to eliminate these issues would be greatly valued. Thank you in advance.
