Help please? What is the best product for acne and acne scars or what is the best natural remedy?

Acne products: I recommend dhc oil cleanser (amazing product for all skin types) and queen esther firming serum and awaken younger cream. These latter are excellent moisturizers with hydrolonic acid that doesn't irritate, but work thoroughly. Proper use of salicylic acid (white heads), benzoyl peroxide (blackheads), topical and/or oral antibiotics (pustular), and retinoids (retin-a or tretinoin) for control. ...Read more

All acne is manageable today; it's not a hygiene or lifestyle problem. We can help. ...Read more

What is the difference between a home remedy acne remover and a branded acne remover. Which is safest? Which is most effective

No difference: You're 13 and young to be here, but I'm glad you're taking a proactive approach to your health. "Home remedies" are worthless internet junk like lemons, honey and pepper. Get some topical benzoyl peroxide and use as tolerated for two weeks. If you are not clear, pick up the phone and make an appointment with your personal physician. You owe it to yourself to do this. Best wishes. ...Read more

None of them: None of the over-the-counter acne treatments does much good. I start with topical Clindamycin with or without a retinoic acid-based compound. If I do not get a good result in two weeks, i add a systemic antibiotic appropriate to the person. Dermatologists are allowed to use the big guns. Nobody nowadays needs to have bad acne -- life's hard enough without it. Good luck. ...Read more
