Natural ways to cure pimples?

Get real Rx: Thanks for writing and please forgive my frankness. Someone may have told you that "natural is better". In the case of acne -- as, sadly, for most illnesses -- this is mostly disinformation. If this has guided your thinking and prevented you from seeking scientific treatment for acne (which is very manageable today) & led to your being scarred, i'm sorry & hope you'll reconsider.

Marks after acne: Well if you think about it acne marks or scars are no different than any other scar...If they are pink or discolored use a product like meriderm or a skin lightener. Continued washing with a mild soap like cetaphil and daily use of a product to get rid of "age" spots will work too.

Different options: For over the counter methods try using products that have benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid, alcohol, and acetone. For prescription treatments you may be prescribed antibiotics, retinoids or vitamin a derivatives, azelaic acid, oral contraceptives, or spironolactone. Always ask a dermatologist about the possible affects and the risks vs benefits of each treatment. Make sure it's best for you.

Acne treatment no Rx: Acne can be prevented or minimized by using a gentle cleanser twice daily, over the counter benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid products followed by a noncomedogenic moisturizer such as Cetaphil, Ceravue or similar. A 'clean' diet of whole grains, vegetables and fruits, devoid of fast or prepackaged food, can help your skin and overall health.
