Visit your GP and ask him to prescribe you a treatment; it's a lot more effective than cosmetic products.

I'm waiting for some ignorant fucktard to come in this thread and say "Wash your face, lol".

I heard the chemicals in the stem of dandelions kill pimples and zits, I don't know if it works though, i have never tried.

Just go pick a dandelion, rip it in half and put the end on a zit.

soak your face in astringent and if it burns, you should be fine. seriously, pop the shit, and scrub the hell out of your face, as long as you have enough time (half an hour) before you have to see people again. avoid cooking things that are greasy, or being around people who are cooking greasy things. the air grease will combine with your face grease and make the process work. or go to a dermatologist and have them check you out. it's not like you're alone. at least you don't have butt-acne. right?

General Practitioner i.e. Your local clinical doctor.

Or you could visit a dermatologist at a hospital.

I have what we Americans call "Bacne". It's not terrible, but there's some on my shoulders and such. I got a prescription (which I should fill at some point...) from my doctor for an acne cream. Apparently, the stuff may not even begin to work for 2 months after initial use, but if you keep using it, it clears up and prevents acne. Being that I forgot to fill the prescription, I don't know if it works, but ask your doctor or GP about an acne treatment like that if you want.

Well, arrange for a second appointment show him that the treatment isn't working. He'll prescribe you something different or stronger. I found that topical treatments are shite anyway.

Acne is caused by oil glands. Bacteria feed on the oil and clog up your sweat pores. Oil can't escape, White Blood Cells attack bateria, cause inflammation, and pus.

Some people's genetics cause them to produce more oil, thus more acne.

You have to stop the bacteria from feeding on your oil.

Soap breaks down oils and thus removing bateria's food source, however, it is very harsh on your skin, and can cause even more damage. Use special acne soap that will be kind to your skin. Try carrying some Astringent and cotton balls in your locker, and wipe your face once or twice at school, and at home. Also, use exfoiliating (the gritty scrub) to wash face in morning/evening to remove dead skin cells.

Don't touch your face much because your fingers and skin is oily.

Your diet doesn't effect your acne, its a myth.

I've seen this work a bunch of times, and I would do it if I weren't so damned lazy. Go to the pharmacy, buy some Vitamin E gel caps. Break them open, I usually put mine in a paper cup. Put some on your face every night right before you go to sleep. It's sticky ass hell but it works, and if you've got scars, it'll help with those too. Warning, it does smell a bit.

This too is a myth.

Oil repels water. Thats why you use soap to wash hands. The soap breaks down the oil, and the water can THEN flush it away.

You can't throw water on your face to get rid of oil, you need something to break the oil down first.

One odd thing that seems to be a quick treatment, is to wash your face a full 6 times in the shower. Just wash thoroughly, rinse thoroughly, and repeat that another 5 times. I know it doesn't have to be exactly 6, but that pretty much makes certain that your face is damned clean of oils and... Anything. I know for me it tends to give a temporary treatment, as my face is noticeably clearer afterwards. I don't get too many pimples on my face (Lucky, I'm still 17), so I don't use this method anymore, though I know it is slightly time consuming if you put effort into it. Your choice to do it or not.

This sounds completley crazy, but use shampoo to wash your face. I had a cosmetologist tell me that. It makes sense if you think about it. It takes oil from your hair, why wouldn't it from your skin? I did and my face cleared up.

Yea man. Just wash your face and do that. I've seen it work on me several times (I quit because I'm lazy, lol) And I saw it work on other people. I would do a combination of that, and maybe some stridex pads. When you pop those though, you're gonna get kinda messy, but I just use a thumb tac.

Scrubbing your face irritates it, having the opposite effect....


usually, acne exacerbates before it gets better. scrubbing would bring all the nastiness to the surface faster, allowing for faster removal and recovery.

Very true, don't scrub hard, scrub gently and slowly


To Threadstarter, there isn't any magic gel caps that abolish acne.

Just understand what acne is, and the best way to CONTROL it. You cannot completely stop it until your body is done with puberty basically.

Just acne wash or shampoo. I'm really serious about the shampoo thing, it will dry your face up and keep the oil off pretty well, I reccomend Pantene Pro-V Classic clean or a generic version of it, that shit strips oil off like crazy.

Use sand papers, and scrub the hell out of your face!

LOL

Seriously, i tried it once, got fed up of people telling me to do it, of course, i know, they were joking, but tried it anyway. I scrub it using those smoot sand papers, you know, not the rough type, feels kinda like powder. Still painful as hell, and the next day, instead of it getting less, like thousands more pops out.

Anyway, i went to those skin doctors, forgot what they call those doctors, whatever, he gave me like three creams, and the face wash is really good. I think it's best if you go to the doctor! It's expensive, but rather than spending all those money on the cosmetics that don't seem to work.

It's called a Gynecologist. Set up an appointment with one and ask if you can have a Hysterectomy done. That'll solve any ance problems.

A skin doctor is called a dermatologist. The most effective and permanent treatment is roacutain it's a pretty powerful antibiotic i think and my GP can't prescribe it but she said if i wanted it i could get her to direct me to a skin specialist and get it there. Trouble is my acne isn't really that bad and it can have side effects such as mood swings and blood infections. HOwever because it can get rid of acne for good i'm considering it. And it works alot better than any creams.

That shit hardly ever works. Only reason it's so popular is because they get P. Diddy and Jessica Simpson to endorse it. Just get your dermatologist to prescribe you something. I have this cream called Tazorac for the day, and Differin gel for bed. I've been breakout free for almost a year now.

i know its supposed to be bad, but if you have REALLY bad acne, like REEALY bad: acutane. you probably will get depressed (it happened to me, but it could have been the acne killing my confidence), but eventually (mine took 6 months; i had horrible acne) it works. but dont if you are depressed, because really, i became pretty depressed, at least, for me. once i find out how to put up pics on these things, il do a before and after.
