Drinking Water

Does drinking water help get rid of acne?

Yes. To drink water is the best solution of 90% skin disease. In the human body, there is 60% of water. So give or take. Consuming water is not a magic bullet for acne. Moisturizing helps your skin self-moisturize as well as cleans your cells of built-up waste, however, it does not have an effect on your oil manufacturing. There is also medication for acne. Some well know treatment is clindamycin tretinoin topical gel.

Is acne normal during pregnancy?

Pregnancy can trigger acne or make existing adult acne worse. (On the other hand, some women with acne-prone skin report a decrease in breakouts during pregnancy, so you never know.)

Higher levels of hormones called androgens are at least partly responsible for pregnancy breakouts because they can prompt the sebaceous glands in your skin to get bigger and boost production of an oily substance called sebum.

This extra sebum, combined with the shed skin cells that line your hair follicles, blocks your pores, creating an environment in which bacteria can rapidly multiply. All this can eventually lead to the inflammation and skin eruptions of acne.

Can you use Jojoba Oil on your face?


Yes, you can, but it depends on your skin type. You should diagnose your skin type first. Is your skin normal to dry or combination to oily? Jojoba oil is good for dry or normal skin, but is a fungicide too, which can be good for acne.

Answer 2:
It is a best face moisturizer for acne and combination skin, apply it overnight to cure acne, reduce scars, prevent wrinkles.

What causes vaginal acne?

Acne on the genitals occurs for the same reasons it occurs on the face, back or any other place on the body. It is simply adding insult to the injury of having to survive adolescence that it occurs in such a private spot. You have my sympathy. Keep clean, eat a healthy diet and wait. It will go away.

There are many causes of vaginal acne. They may include the following:

Bacteria in the pores in skin which make infection on the body

Excess use of anabolic steroids

Excessive exposure to high levels of chlorine compounds

Any drugs that include halogens, barbiturates and androgens

Stress through increased production of levels of hormones from the adrenal glands

Collections of dead skin cells

Hyperactive sebaceous glands

Any scratching or irritation of the skin will be activated inflammation

Hormonal activities such as menstrual periods and puberty

The main causes of vaginal acne are narrowing of the hair follicle and hormone-driven excess production of sebum.

Does Cetaphil help clear acne?

Cetaphil is a moisturizing hand cream designed for moisturizing skin. Not clearing skin. In fact, it may clog your pores and actually cause acne. So the short answer is no.

>>cetaphil makes a cleanser and lotion. it is a very mild water based solution. using cetaphil cleanser alone can sometimes dry your skin. it is non-abrasive and barely suds, which is good because you don't want to damage your skin by scrubbing it twice a day. it is mild enough to use every day. i saw improvement as far as skin clarity after several weeks. keep in mind, it is not medicine and is extremely mild, good for sensitive skins. i apply liberally to dry skin and then rinse off thoroughly, then apply the lotion and then gently wipe off the excess so it won't clog my pores. once a week i apply the cleanser and gently rub it in with a washcloth before rinsing off again, like a super gentle scrub. hope this answer helps.

My grandson has a condition called infantigo. It's like acne and he got it below his nose from time to time and it itched. The doc. prescribed an ointment for it. Could be something like that. Ask him/her if it itches. Your pediatrician would know. Good luck!!

For the last six months had this pimple looking thing on upper back occasionally popped it bleeds more than any other pimple ive seen most of the time its bright red?

A dermatologist should look at it to make sure it is not squamous cell skin cancer. Most likely it is just a solar keratoses mark or another benign skin thing.

Does a hairy face cause worse acne?

Yes as the hairs grow sometimes they can get stuck causing bacteria build-up. My boyfriend has a clear face normally but as his stubble starts growing back he gets a few small spot on his face. To cure this exfoliate your face daily with either a rough sponge or flannel to get rid of dead skin and oil so the hairs can grow thro smoothly ( do not use normal hand soap bars, as it drys out the skin)
