Okay, as many people my age know, acne sucks.
Not only do you have large red splotches on your face but, you feel quite uncomfortable as well (maybe you don't I don't know, jsut using personal experience).

Anyway, I was wondering if anybody knows and sure fire way to get rid of it, or at least greatly reduce it. Usually it hasn't been bad for me, but lately it's been getting worse, and worse.
I'm going to the doctors on Monday (for something else) so I will be able to speak to a professional, but I was wondering if there was something I could do without drugs.

I'm also going back to B.C. (where I lived before I moved) and would like to have a fairly clear face for when I go back

tl;dr
Acne, how do I get rid of it?

I wish I knew.

You could always try burning it off with a torch!

I wash my face with soap often..

I still get a little bit of acne though.

for big ones use tooth paste or crush up asprin and mix it with some water to make a paste then apply...

it massively drys out your face...but it destroys them all
#9
Clearasil Gel. The blue stuff. Works great.
After that, use a benzoyl peroxide gel/cream.

I guarantee it'll make you a dried up flaky looking kid for the first couple of months, so you'll probably only want to use it at night before bed at first until your skin can handle it. Oh, and try not to touch your face/pop any pimples, you'll only aggravate it.

I don't need to use the stuff anymore, but I used to two to three times a day. Good times.

Already tried, same with pouring alcohol all over it, and cutting it off with a knife (no I didn't actually but no need for these )

I remember seeing a while ago a link with a site that had a "regimen" where you used baking soda or something, anyone have a link for it?

Acutane. I'm on it, but it's really gnarly. Look it up if your acne is really bad.
ok, yeah. my name is silly because I signed up when I was 13.

If you see a doctor, they can still recommend good quality creams for getting rid of it, they don't always have to give you drugs.


Saying that, I never liked the creams I was prescribed, they always made my face massively dry, but I suppose that's expected.

Personally I just used time, but mine were never that massively severe.

I got this stuff called Accutane, my doctor said creams and stuff can subside it til I grow out of it but this pill will get rid of it in 5 months forever. Theres bad side effects of dryness but to be honest I have had no problems, just use lots of chapstick! ask for it, works great!

Go see a dermatologist. thats what i did. About the start of the new year, i started to get acne, and finally towards the end of may it got so bad that my face just hurt all over. So i went, and i got a prescription for it. its almost 2 months later, and my face has cleared up a lot and my chest and back are better. Also, get PanOxyl face soap, you don't need a prescription, but its what i was told by the doctor to use to wash my face with. good luck with it.

edit: ^ haha yea, possible side-effects of Accutane include Depression. Im on minocycline, which does about the same thing as accutane, except not as strong and not as many side effects.

I know man, it's like an addiction but one I'd happily quit.

I have some creams and stuff ( a whole bunch of stuff actually) but I find none of it works.

I have that drying out stuff, it destroys my skin but somehow the little buggers manage to survive, and if not my face is red as hell > where I put the cream.

That's stupid the ratio was so astronomical, just some dope killed himself while on the drug so they have to list it as a side effect.

thats actually more false than true, as to causing acne. When i got my acne, my diet hadn't changed from when i didn't. It can be your hormones that cause it. Also, its an infection. That's why you would get prescribed some sort of medication to take. But eating healthier would help you in some ways.

I sure hope so, I don't want it all to be for nothing

I'd rather not have to take drugs, but if that what it takes..

if you're like me, you'll be glad to get on the drugs and start clearing your face up. But get PanOxyl face soap, that stuff really works.

Your diet has little to no effect on the severity of your acne. It's something everyone goes through. Washing your face and gently patting it dry can have a big effect if you need to.

If it's really bad, go see a doctor/dermatologist for help.

Minocycline ftw!! I use that....but seriously go ta a dermatologist it's the best thing i've done in my life....and if your acne is pretty bad don't buy products like oxyclean and Clearasil or what ever it's called...they don't do much....and when you go to the dermatologist (amusing your going to one) they'll tell you to stop using those products because it would be to strong or something like that. and you won't get your rid of your acne right away it takes lots of time but it's worth it!

It's called concealer :]
Use that stuff that conceals and heals at the same time.

If it's sunny go sunbathing and let the sun really burn your skin.
It always works for me.
When I see that I'm starting to have some new acne I just go out for a long walk in the sun or something.

wash ur face 2 times a day. its enough, too much washing will cause ur face to loosen more oil and thus more acne.

eat healthy. drink lots of water.

use a toner after u wash ur face, it clears all the dirt away.

apply whatever creams the doctor gave you. for my case its benzyol peroxide in morning and differin at night.

buy moisturizers. so ur skin wont look so dry

be patient. clearing acne really takes time.

I've heard popping it, cleaning it, applying a thin bit of garlic and then toothpaste helps.
