There's been a lot of threads about acne lately, so I decided to create a thread completely dedicated the problems and solutions to acne.

Here's my fail-safe acne fighting plan:

Morning:

Antibiotic face wash

Stridex Pad (Full strength, it works wonders)

Cream w/ salicylic acid

Mid-Day

Antibiotic face wash

Stridex Pad

Mid-Day #2

Stridex Pad

Evening

Antibiotic face wash

Stridex Pad

Before Bed

Cream with Benzoyl Peroxide (Works Wonders)

Don't EVER touch your face. The oils from your hands will cause pimples. I used to have a problem with touching my face in my sleep. I would wake up with pimples all over the place. I had to sleep with gloves on to prevent it. Maybe some of you should try this.

Discuss.

Put vitamin E on the scars. It worked for me, but my scars were brand new. I don't know how old your scars are.
#11
Yea. I got acne when i was about 10 and hasnt gotten too much better. Im 14 now. HS isnt too much fun w/ this on my face. Its a socially terminal illness.
#12
I never had acne.


I've been getting a fair few spots as of recent, but thats from being a grumpy miserable prick.
#14
All you people with acne should just go see a Dermatologist. They'll prescribe you something and it works wonders.
#16
I've got some slight scarring on my cheeks, not like the bumps, but just red marks that won't go away. Any ideas on how to get rid of them? Vitamin E?

Isnt it Viatmin A?? I know that helps a lot with my skin anyway... I got this cream a while back, forget the name, that had vitamin a in it and it made my acne go away.

Now that we all have acne covered, anyone ave any special way to get rid of blackheads?

Most people have some, but some dont. I'm wondering if theres something you can do if you're not one of the lucky ones that was born with a perfect complexion, besides washing your face twice a day and using a cream with part whatever whatever acid in it.

Any ideas?
#29
I'm waiting for someone to say you have acne because of your diet, and that just isn't true!

My dermatologist said it, gave me a course of roaccutane and sent me on my way. And roaccutane REALLY works. Got some weird side effects though... had back pains during the treatment and my hands dry out randomly in the random weather - hot/cold/hot etc.

If you GENTLY squeeze blackheads the oil and dead skin trapped in your pores can be released.

ANybody use Proactiv? I've been using it for about a week and a half and wonder if it worked for anybody else. It seems to be doing the job, but it takes 3-6 weeks for full results.

I used it for a while but I was allergic to the face wash, so now I don't use it as much anymore. I still use the moisturizer, though.

It only works for the less severe types of acne, like if you get a couple every now and then, say every month or so

I don't think they can "grow" but you can definitely clog them up more. If you already ahve a blackhead and you shove even more crap into the pore, it will get bigger.

It seems like you have blackheads. I get rid of mine by squeezing them gently. It works pretty well as long as you don't get pissed that it's not working and start trying to kill yourself with the sqeezing. blackheads + scar < blackeads
