Get Rid Acne Overnight Naturally
Acne: Don't wash your face with body soap. Also don't use alcohol or comedogenic products on your face. Try to find an acne wash system like neutrogena, pangea organics or something with benzoyl peroxide. Following low sodium diet might help too, since acne-causing bacteria like salt. You can try to prevent spreading bacteria onto your face by not touching your face, washing your phone, etc. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Meds: Many patients do well with over the counter benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid preparations. Some patients require topical or oral antibiotics or retinoids as well. If the over the counter meds alone don't control your acne after a month of daily use, see a doctor for additional treatment options. It is important to be persistent, and some patients "get worse before they get better". ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Evidence-based Rx: Benzoyl peroxide, the antibiotics, and the vitamin a analogues that actually work are all derived from nature's bounty. Especially if you're responsible for a young person's physical and emotional health, please don't waste time on "home remedies." if you're the patient and you want to experiment, try vinegar or tea tree oil. They may help some. ...Read more
You can't: Please forgive my frankness. Smearing your face with "magic" honey or squeezing lemon juice on your pimples are unworthy of an adult in the 21st century. The stuff that works best -- antibiotics and vitamin a analogues -- are gifts from mother nature. Don't deprive you or someone who trust you of effective treatment because of a "natural is better" superstition. ...Read more
Forget "natural": Forgive me... All acne's manageable, but despite testimonials about a disease that comes and goes, "natural" remedies don't work, and some are ludicrous (sleeping with your face soaked in honey...) your personal physician can clear you up using scientific medicine. This is the 21st century and it's your right -- your taxes fund the research that's made us the healthiest people who've ever lived. ...Read more
It's all natural: This is the 21st century and you have a right to the benefits of science. Benzoyl peroxide or its analogues is naturally produced by some of mother nature's living creatures, and both the topical Clindamycin with which i like to start treating acne and the tetracyclines and Erythromycin i've used systemically are made by living things as well. ...Read more
Scientific Rx: Please forgive my frankness. Acne is a serious, chronic, potentially mutilating disease with the likelihood of a grave impact on the patient. It would be a terrible mistake for a misguided preference for herbs, vitamin-store pills and home remedies to get in the way of effective treatment to a teen in need. In fact, our vitamin a and antibiotic-based rx's that work are mother nature's gifts. ...Read more
No easy fix: You need to manage your acne to prevent new lesions. If you have hesitated to get your acne treated effectively because of a preference for "natural" remedies, the retinoic acid derivatives and antibiotics that are mainstays of management are Mother Nature's gifts. The red spots are healing and cannot be altered. Don't try too hard to bleach the brown spots or it may make a mess. Best wishes. ...Read more
