    I had a lot of acne over the school year, so on the first day of summer I decided to remove it. This is what I do every day:

    1) Wake up, wash face with warm water, lathe it with these detoxifying beads soap thing, rinse off with cool water.

    2) After I put my pimple cream on my acne and then put my moisturizer over that.

    3) Take one shower in the day. After shower I put on moisturizer.

    4) Before I sleep, I wash face with warm water, lathe it with these detoxifying beads soap thing, rinse off with cool water

    5)Again put pimple cream on my acne and then put my moisturizer over that

    6) Go to sleep with a clean towel over my pillow.


    I drink lots of water throughout the day and I'm not that stressed out about anything, and I don't have any allergies. Why is my acne not reducing?

    What do you guys do to reduce acne?


    Here are my pictures...can someone judge how severe this is and tell me my best course of action?

    I'm definitely not checking those links but I'd recommend oil free acne wash.

    Your acne is really not that bad. I had it 1000x worse. I was literally at the point of nothing working for me. Even my diet was drastically altered and it wasn't helping because there was such a bad infection under my skin. Your best bet is visiting your dermatologist. They'll probably give you a prescription for oral medication called minocyclin to kill the infection and a topical cream or two (morning/night). After about 2-3 weeks of the above, my skin was in miracle mode. I had not seen my face clear for about 6 years before that. It was truly amazing. But don't skimp on water and a decent diet. All of these together gave me almost perfectly clear skin.

    a little trick I sometime do whenever I get a really pimple is to dab a little toothpaste on it before going to bed...

    don't not rub it all over (cause it can irritate the skin) just a dot on the pimple it self, over night (an make sure its just regular toothpaste)

    it works for me... but results may vary
    (so be warned I'v heard some horror story from other people who'v tried it)

    I'd suggest just trying it on one or two really bad ones first

    this should be more of a last resort

    I had it pretty bad myself, especially on my forehead. Had the stupidest huge fringe all through school.

    I tried one thing, so simple, and it cleared up within weeks and never came back.

    Salt water.

    Now, I'm not a doctor. Maybe it was just a coincidence? And the recommandation came from someone online who also said I should chant in front of a mirror while washing my face in it :funny:

    But hey, it worked for me. And I guess it makes logical sense. It dries out your oily skin. I certainly don't think it'd hurt to try!

    Just use normal salt, poor it in a sink full of warm water, wash your face in it in the morning.

    Also, I'd suggest not using so many products. I swear, most of the time they just make it worse.

    There's a product out my old dermatologist recommended called PanOxyl. You can get it in a bar or a foaming wash. Stuff works awesome. Pick it up at a Walgreens, but be careful. Don't use too much because it will definitely dry out your skin. Try it once a day.

    Probably you should change your diet, my acne has become much better after I cut down on sweets coffee and fast food. You can also try to use aloe vera juice or gel, I apply it every night before going to bed, it helps for my acne and moreover, it also lightens old acne scars a little bit.

    From personal experience I think the best otc item (and really good in general) is anything containing benzoyl peroxide.

    It comes as strong as 10%. You can find it at the drugstore in the skincare section. It comes it lots of different brand names (someone mentioned Panoxyl above and I'm pretty sure that's one of them). If you're unsure, just check the back of the container: it will have "benzoyl peroxide" listed as the active ingredient.

    It comes in washes, gels, creams. Personally I like the washes, because benzoyl peroxide WILL bleach your clothes/towels. Also, it can cause redness/irritation.

    instead of creating a thread, he should see a doctor or get recommended to a dermatologist, poor kid, probably has some self esteem issues
