Warm Water and Epsom Salts will clear up acne in a few days if you're consistent in applying it. Just mix 3 T epsom salts in 1 -2 cups water (heat in microwave), soak a clean face towel in it, wring out and place on your face for about 20 minutes (you'll need to re-soak and wring out again to keep the towel warm). Make sure the towel is not too hot. You can then follow it up with a 2% beta hydroxy solution, which will help exfoliate inside the pores, and some benzoyl peroxide to kill the remaining bacteria(this is a good before bed regimine). The epsom salts pull bacteria (and kill them )--and help pull sebum from the pores, the heat from the towel open the pores and then allow the beta hydroxy and benzoyl peroxide to work better. If you've ever spent a few days swimming in the ocean you may have noticed your skin clears up --it's the whole salt thing -- certain bacteria -- especially the one's responsible for acne, can't survive in it...but you don't want to over do it because too much salt will burn your skin -- like everything, moderation and your body will tell you what's too much. Be sure to cleanse skin with a mild cleanser daily and don't over wash face as this will just irritate your skin. A great source for acne products that have the correct pH balance (for the hydroxy acids to work effectively) is Paula's Choice. I'm not affiliated with the brand, but have found the products to be effective, not terribly expensive and thoroughly tested to work...after trying expensive prescriptions like Differin, Retin A and all the drugstore and other "expensive brands --Proactive, etc... There's another website called acne.org that has a great reader forum for this! They only doctor approved product is Facial Genesis which is a potent facial serum. I have found that, if you get a good face wash (I use Noxzema), and you wash your face once in the morning and once at night before you go to bed, that should help, but don't over wash your face and don't scrub your face when you wash it, as this can bother your skin and sometimes make acne worse. I had to experiment with a few different brands before I found one that worked, if nothing I said helps you, you could go to the doctor. Also don't pop your zits because that just shoves the stuff in your pores farther down. Hope this helped you! Sometimes stop eating as much chocolate. Some people think its a myth but I found that it really helps.

Depending on the type of acne you have will make a difference on what might work. Some people I know, including myself have tried Proactive and it works really well. I use it only when I get bad flare ups and it clears up within a couple days. If you have more serious issues it may not work and you may have to take medication but I would certainly start with something OTC. ORIGINS SKIN CARE is also really good. Give it a try; it's expensive but it really works. If you wear a lot of make-up, try to cut down on liquid make-up because it damaged my skin, and once I started to use kind of powdery make-up my face is so clear and doesn't break out at all. And don't bother spending a bunch of money on face washes. The best face wash you can get is the god given one, water.


Proactive products have worked wonders for two of my friends.

Okay, so I've had acne for the longest time ever, since, like fifth grade, I think. And I've found that the best way to get rid of it, is naturally, because I swear to god I've tried every single product [[pescriptions, over the counter, et cetera, et cetera]] until I got this natural remedies book that had a section on acne. Wash your face twice a day, once in the morning when you wake up, and once before you go to bed. But, I always wore foundation to try and cover up the fact that I had acne, so if you wear make-up then wash it off sometime in the afternoon, after school or work. Don't use medicated facewash at night, and preferrably just in the morning. And another thing that works very very well, is Apple Cider vinegar. If you dab it on your acne before you go to bed [[for best results once or twice a day]] and leave it on, it works beautifully. But it does burn a bit and makes your eyes water. Also, aloe vera gel, before you go to bed, or lemon juice, or rubbing papaya skin on your face. Just alternate these random things, don't put them all on your face every night. That would take forever and I'm not sure how well it would work. There are several other things like honey. Honey works really well. But I've tried sleeping with it on my face...It was all over my pillows by the time I woke up. Mixing honey and cinnamon together and putting that on your face for a while, at least thirty minutes works well. Or honey by itself. Even tomatos help. If you dab the excess tomato juice off and leave the slices on your face it works as a toner. Oh yeah and Witch Hazel [[an astringent used for cuts and rashes]] works really well and gets rid of scars too. Actually all the other things I named get rid of scars too, especially apple cider vinegar [[it worked the best for me]]. And vitamin E oil, you can get it at beauty supply stores or health stores like GNC, if you leave that on your face for a long time daily it works well. Even though it feels greasy and gets you all paranoid that it's gonna make you break out, it totally doesn't. Just don't touch your face while it's on there, that probably would make you break out. Also if you mix nutmeg and unboiled milk into a paste and put that on pimples it gets rid of them. Leave that on for about thirty minutes. And cucumber juice [[straight from cucumbers, I guess]] prevents acne, and makes your skin all fresh looking. I guess I wouldn't recommend this for a lot of people who are not that immune to pain, but Horse Radish Sauce clears up your skin really well, but do it about once a week, just put it on your pimples and leave it on for about thirty minutes. It burns a lot for a few minutes and makes your eyes water insanely. And I also have tried putting soy sauce on my face, that works too. But you can also drink things that make your skin clear up, and if you drink them continuously, I'm sure they keep your acne from springing up. If you drink about 2 table spoons of apple cider vinegar about three times a day [[mixed with cranberry juice b/c it's disgusting without]], and drink green tea a lot, about 3-4 glasses a day, preferrably decaf. That works insanely well. It clears it up because of the anti-oxidants and prevents it, and it makes your skin tone even and clears up scars, also. And you can conveniently rub that used warm tea bag on your face and that works really great on acne and tightens pores and makes your face pretty, somewhat like a foundation. Also, I know it sounds cliche but drinking eight glasses of water a day helps. I don't know, I think it has something to do with keeping your liver hydrated which gives it more time to actually work better and clear out toxins better. And all of these things together can actaully help you lose weight too, without even dieting. But try not to dry your face out too much, don't go insane and start torturing your skin with this newly learned information. Take some water and baking powder and make a paste. Rub it on your face, but don't leave it on too long. Also, make sure not to get it in your eyes, because it burns badly. Then just rinse it off with warm water and apply your acne cream.
