I am 18 & black african & was wondering what gets rid of dark acne marks on your face naturally? I've tried honey and cinnamon so far.
Postinflammatory hyp: The first and most important thing is that you rid yourself of the acne which is causing these spots. This can be done in many ways and your dermatologist will help you. If the acne is stopped, and the spots are left alone and not picked-at, they usually do go away with enough time. Above all, it is most important to get the advice of your dermatologist. ...Read more

Toothpaste: I don't know who starts this hoax, but toothpaste can badly damage your skin. As you have experienced, OTC's, off label applications (like using toothpaste on forehead instead of teeth), and Internet "solutions" are at best worthless, at worst harmful. For best treatment please see a skin specialist, a Dermatologist. They treat problems like yours all day every day. See a Pro. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

Does the cinnamon mask for acne really work? I was thinking about trying this mask. I wanna know if any of you people tried this. Does it really clear up acne?
Get a real Rx: There are dozens of weird, obviously made-up fantasy acne treatments. I suspect some of them are simply cruel pranks. If you want to try this, do it as an adjunct to evidence-based treatment. Benzoyl peroxide is your first-line therapy; if this isn't sufficient, get with your personal physician. All acne can be managed. Best wishes. ...Read more
Of course not: This is a cruel internet prank. I'm sorry your acne was neglected and you ended up with scars. Don't continue this. All acne can be managed until it remits on its own. If topical benzoyl peroxide has not cleared you in two weeks, get with your personal physician who can add something that will. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Forgive my frankness: Whoever told you that "natural is better" did you a profound disservice. Painting your face with honey isn't suitable for a grown man when all acne can be managed by today's scientific rx. If topical benzoyl peroxide hasn't cleared you in two weeks, get with your physician; a trial of topical Clindamycin / retinoic acid or a move straight to oral tetracycine or even stronger will work. ...Read more
Can turmeric face mask mix with lemon juice and honey can treat ice pick scars, box scar, and acne?
No: I am VERY sorry you ended up scars, and even more sorry if this was because you or your family are focused on "natural healing" or (forgive my frankness) phony internet remedies. Acne is easily manageable by scientific medicine. Your scars can be treated by fillers, laser treatment, and/or microsurgery. Best wishes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
You can try: Or vinegar or tea-tree oil or anything else. If you're responsible for a young person's physical and emotional health, you have a duty to provide something that works for a serious disease that's likely to disfigure the kid. It's not lifestyle or hygiene related. If benzoyl peroxide fails, get junior to a scientific physician. ...Read more
No: The one link that has shown some consistency in studies is that for some people, dairy products exacerbate acne. Giving this up would be a hardship for me. I was surprised to find that chocolate has been exonerated. Most important is that you know that all acne is manageable with today's methods. If topical benzoyl peroxide for two weeks has not cleared you, get with your personal physician. ...Read more
Adjunct only: I'm really sorry that your acne isn't being managed scientifically. The best over-the-counter remedy is benzoyl peroxide. If this fails, you need to be under a physician's care. If someone is telling you that acne is your fault or that "natural remedies are the best", you have my sympathy. Phone your physician and make an appointment on your own. ...Read more
Go for real Rx: Use "pop" claims like sleeping with your face smeared with honey only as an adjunct. If topical benzoyl peroxide has not cleared you in two weeks, get with your personal physician. If you are a parent trying to manage your teenager's acne by "pop" remedies rather than getting him/her evidence-based prescription-strength medicine for this serious illness, you're making a bad mistake. ...Read more
I deal with acne for 3 months already and I couldn't get rid of it, i started to use honey and i noticed an improvement,can you use it every day?
Get serious Rx: The Azelaic Acid that you've been using for your acne is one of several topical agents that are worth trying. The others are benzoyl peroxide (probably your best), salicylic acid, and (if you can get it) retinoic acid derivatives. However, you didn't get a good response in two weeks, and that means it's time to see your personal physician, especially since you're a female. Honey's not the answer. ...Read more
See a dermatologist: Every person is different and it is best to see a dermatologist so that they can figure out what kind of acne you have and give you proper medication to get rid of it. A product containing benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid often clears the skin. This does not mean that the acne will clear overnight. ...Read more
