I learned this from my mother and passed it along to my son and now my daughter. After using this for awhile I no longer had a problem with acne, my son was amazed.

Get a soap called Fels-Napa. It is a bar soap they used back in the day to do laundry. You will find it in the laundry detergent section. It is not pleasant smelling but it works.

At night lather this soap up and spread a good lather on your face leaving it on overnight. It dries and sucks the dirt and grease out of your pores. In the morning just lather it up with water and rinse it off. Do this each night until the problem is solved.

All I do is wash my face tons of times each day, but not enough for my skin to start getting dry or peeling.

I also put on 'Equate' every night before I got to bed. It helps a lot..but I guess it just depends on your skin type.

Hoped I helped.

calomine lotion at night dries it right up. My family has used this for years. Just be warned, if something happens in the middle of the night (robbery, fire, etc.) you WILL have a pink face and it will probably scare people! ha ha! No, seriously, it looks stupid but it's at night so who cares.... and anyways it works!

I suffered from acne and those ugly whiteheads and blackheads that everyone hates. And I started to change what I was doing.

I bought Acne Free after using Proactiv for a while (like 2 years). Proactiv really didn't do anything to my face. I now use Acne Free by University Medical. You can get it at Wal-Mart, Krogers, etc. in the facial cleansers aisle. It works!!! TRUST ME! If you use it TWICE a day (morning and night).

Then, I started working out again and noticed that my skin doesn't break out as much if...
1. Work out
2. Eat healthy
3. Use just the cleanser before and after the work out

Also, when you do break out, try dabbing a cotton swab (q tip) into hydrogen peroxide and apply it to the pimple/zit/blackhead/whitehead. It will foam/bubble but thats good. It helps clean the junk out when its open. I usually keep dabbing it on until it doesn't bubble/foam anymore. If you continue to dab hydrogen peroxide on it when you get a scab (I do this in the morning and night), it will get rid of the scab before you know it.

All of what I typed above...WORKS ONLY IF YOU GIVE IT TIME!!!

Hope it works for you!

I have dry skin, but I also have acne, so one day my face was itching horribly, and I put hydrocortisone cream on my face, and noticed the next morning where acne and dry skin both were, almost healed. I used this for a few months and this helped me dramatically. When I would lay out in the sun alot also, this would help my acne as well, with the combination of all three my skin was virtually clear in no time.

I am in school for Aesthetics, my instructor is a licensed chemist and swears by zinc-oxide! best product that has zinc is, no joke, diaper rash creme. Walgreens brand has 40% zinc and is no more than $4, will last at least 2+ months. dries the pimple without drying the skin, make skin soft as a baby's bottom (of course, it was made for babies!) and takes away redness within hours and stays gone. hope you try it, it really works!

If you tried everything under the sun like I have, and even wasted money on proactiv, you know the aggrivation acne can bring. I've researched, and researched, went to dermo after dermo. Finally my primary care doctor had a crazy remedy. For just cleansing, wash in warm rinse in cold using either oxy10 that has the same crap in it as proactiv, or neutrogena, again the same ingredients as proactiv. Pat dry, then for on the spot, acne especially ones that are large and hurt, take an ice cube, hold it on the pimple for as long as you can stand it, let it air dry, then take a dab of toothpaste, not gel paste, but the white toothpaste and rub it all over it don't rinse it off. For scarring, this is gonna sound really strange but I've been doing this for 3 weeks now and have noticed a big difference, take sugar and honey, mix it together to make it pastey, rub it on the scars leave it in for 15-20 minutes, rinse with water, warm or cool, dandruff shampoo works fairly well too for preventing acne, but can dry out your skin really bad.
