Coconut water good for acne?

Coconut water good for acne?

Get real Rx: "pop" remedies are adjuncts-only. If topical benzoyl peroxide has not cleared you in two weeks, get with your personal physician for prescription-strength treatment.

Is hydrogen peroxide a good treatment for facial acne?

Is hydrogen peroxide a good treatment for facial acne?

No: Get something that actually works -- a cheap rx. I start folks on topical clindamycin, with a retinoic acid derivative if there are lots of blackheads, benzoyl peroxide if not. The cost should be almost nothing. More extensive disease is usually manageable by oral antibiotics, and dermatologists have the big guns. This is the 21st century and nobody needs unwanted acne. ...Read more

How good is dermabrasion for acne scars?

Often very good: Mechanical dermabrasion (not microdermabrasion) can provide a "plane" removal of the acne scar edges, smoothing and flattening of the scar depressions. Better on scars that are crater-like (pox scar example) than deep "pit" type scars (called ice pick types). May require more than a single treatment, as there are limits to depth. New skin from oil & sweat glands and hair follicle to resurface. ...Read more

What face wash is good for acne?

What face wash is good for acne?

Face wash for acne: Ideally you want a wash that has chemical exfoliants in the form of Alpha hydroxy acids or beta hydroxy acid. Mechanical exfoliates, like the gritty washes (apricot scrubs etc) cause irritation and can compound inflammation. Look for salicylic acid based washes or glycolic acid for a gentle exfoliation. These work by dissolving the goo that holds the dead cells on the surface of the skin. ...Read more

Very good: Benzac has been around a long time and contains benzoyl peroxide (bpo). Whether it is any better than other over-the-counter bpo creams is unlikely except that brand name benzac ac does have ingredients to help absorption and minimize irritation, which may allow more consistent use and thus better results.
