Need ways to get rid of acne home remedies especially?

Why not real Rx?: Even in today's insane health-care system, you can get something that works. I start with topical clindamycin, plus benzoyl peroxide if there aren't a lot of blackheads or a retinoic acid derivative if there are. A woman is often cleared by the oral contraceptive pill. If it's harder to manage, i add a systemic antibiotic appropriate for the person. Dermatologists have the big guns. Good luck. ...Read more

What are some home remedies to remove acne scars?

Not a good idea.: Several options are available, but none can be done at home. The most effective treatment, in my opinion, is laser abrasion, which smoothes out the edges of the scars to make them less visible.

Benzoyl peroxide for starters; then get with your physician for a topical antibiotic and/or a retinoic acid derivative, or something systemic if you need it. You have a right to effective rx. Cheers. ...Read more

Are there any home remedies known to help clear up acne?

No magic potions!: There are no proven home remedies for acne, but eating a healthy diet, being happy, and living a low-stress lifestyle may help. Washing the face 2-3 times a day is fine, but over-scrubbing and irritating the skin makes acne worse. Over-the-counter Benzoyl Peroxide Gel can help. A doctor can prescribe medicines and look for other medical problems if acne is a lot, or if obesity is also present. ...Read more
