I use three main approaches to acne. 1. Diet to eliminate all sugars (you have to read the ingredients on labels), bad fats from margarine to peanut butter to other oils except for olive oil, all fried foods, all junk food; 2. Topical: Use aloe vera gel as often as you can; 3. Whole Food Supplementation: Inflaplex (NutriPlex Formulas) at 12 capsules a day and SuperGreens PhytoFood at 12 tablets a day. I've seen this work hundreds of times in my practice.
My daughter has very bad acne. She's been seeing a dermatologist for 19 months now with very little results. She has recently started using a soap called Sulfo Lac. We have noticed drastic improvement in only a week. Our drugstore does not keep this in stock but was happy to order it for us it cost about $15.00. Something else she's trying is mixing sulfur powder with an astringent it's also worked. I'm going to let her try the Head & Shoulders shampoo along with the baby diaper rash stuff. I will comment after a few days and let everyone know how it goes.
Juiceing!!! Carrots and Cucumbers are very good for juiceing. i drank that for a month every meal and my acne is gone! and that is saying something because i had horrable acne! and i am a teenager! truse me juiceing really works!
If you only have mild blemishes and blackheads try this: make a paste out of baking soda and water. Gently massage and cleanse face. Rinse. Follow with a light moisturizer.
If you have severe acne try this: make a thicker paste out of baking soda and water. Apply to face. Let sit for 15 minutes. Rinse. Follow with a light moisturizer.
The baking soda helps dry out the excess oil in your skin and helps the blemishes heal faster. You won't even believe how soft your skin feels too!
Use x germ hand sanitizer. apply it to acne and it kills the bacteria and drys up the acne.
when you are trying any remedy it is good too wash your face with warm water because it opens up the pores and lets the remedy your using work better. after finishing rinse your face with cool water.
Believe it or not, but Boudreaux Butt Paste (for baby diaper rash) works MIRACLES on any type of acne or blemishes you get. I got horrible acne after my daughter was born and nothing would get rid of it so, I tried the Butt Paste. I will now forever have a tube of it in my house.
Instead of spending lots of money on acne creams- crush an asprin and make a paste with a few drops of water. Apply to pimples till dry and then wash off. Can repeat several times daily if needed.
Asprin contains salicylic acid just like acne creams do.
DO NOT do if you are allergic to asprin!
(learned this in nursing school)
Doing Yoga regularly can help to a very great extent, especially as it regulating hormones and helps the body get rid of toxins.
Along with healthy eating habits and normal cleansing,it can not only help with acne but also many many other ailments. I have just started out few days back..and I already feel great.
Also check out homeopathic medicines.
when using a face mask or pimple treatment apply warm water first, this will open the pores up and when your finished splash your face with cool water.
ive also found that wiping a used tea bag over you face makes the redness go away.
hope it works for you!
