Does lemon sugar scrub help acne?

Of course not: The very name should tell you this internet-hyped home remedy is silly stuff. The mainstay of acne therapy is topical benzoyl perixode; if junior is not clear by two weeks or has it on the trunk, get prescription-strength rx from a real doctor. Acne is a grave personal and professional liability. If you are responsible for a teen's health, it's your duty to get him/her effective treatment now. ...Read more

Got a sunburn and now my face is peeling. Any home remedies to heal/speed up peeling process? Tried face scrubs & Cetaphyl & Aveeno (oatmeal) face lotions

Avoid face scrubs: for sure as this will just irritate your healing skin. I would be very gentle using only cetaphil like non-soap cleansers, and vaniply cream. Skin will heal but if you remove peeling skin you can have scarring. ...Read more

If topical benzoyl peroxide as tolerated (try 5% 2x/day) hasn't cleared the pimples in 2 weeks, get with your personal physician for prescription-strength rx. The post-inflammatory pigment fades on its on after several weeks, or try hydroquinone sparingly. ...Read more
