  • I also suffer acne on my face before...Like an ugly shadow, it would follow me around for the next ten years.. after I saw this ebook, following the simple steps within, my skin has been much clearer! Not only that but I have also felt healthier with more energy. If I hadn't found "Natural Cure For Stopping Acne In 3 Days" book I wouldn't have been able to clear my acne! so try this ebook and follow the step, you won't regret it...;)

  • ACNE (PIMPLES) Acne is a common problem faced by almost all teen-agers and youth. What is acne and why do we get them. Acne is actually caused because of hormone imbalance. Your skin breaks out because of a hormone called testosterone. Both men and women have testosterone in their systems. In fact, did you know that in order to make testosterone, boys bodies have to make female hormones first? If you have acne, you haven't got abnormal levels of testosterone. You've got skin that reacts abnormally to this hormone. You start producing testosterone around the time you start sprouting body hair. Testosterone tells glands in your skin, called sebaceous glands, to produce oily stuff called sebum. To add to the problem the inside of the tubes that hold each hair become gummy and get partially blocked - giving you blackheads. Put together if sebum blocks the tubes --- you have big acne. So go to your pharmacist or doctor to get your acne treated. Here are a few tips that will help you know how to treat acne at home. 1. If you have red angry looking acne, don't touch it. If you squeeze now, all you'll do is force the contents deeper into the skin that will make matters worst. And all you'll end up with is redder, angrier acne than you had before. Don't do it. 2. If you have a yellow custard top? Go for it. These beauties CAN be squeezed but there's an art to it. Here's how. Wash your hands thoroughly to avoid trouble and infection. Put a tissue over your finger. Why? Because you want the contents of the spot on the tissue, not splattered all over the mirror. Using the side of your thumb and the end of your finger, very gently start to squeeze. Don't whatever you do, use your nails as this will damage your skin. Stop when you're applying a lot of pressure and nothing is happening and you see clear fluid, rather than yellow grotty stuff and the spot begins to bleed. When you've finished dab it with antiseptic. Once the custard bit is out, the spot will heal more quickly than an unsqueezed yellow top would, providing that you now leave it well alone. Now wash your hands again. 3. Whiteheads and blackheads. If acne is left untreated they may cause this problem. Here the rule is if they're black, squeeze but if they're small, white raised lumps leave them alone. All that stuff about clean hands, tissues and stopping if nothing is happening or you see blood, apply here too. Tips for acne treatment 1. DON'T TRY TO WASH IT AWAYAcne isn't caused by dirt. In fact people with oily skin have cleaner skin than average because they wash it more often. But it's a fact that washing too much can make acne worse because it makes the skin dry and sore. So, wash no more than twice a day, using mild soap and water. If you have patches of dry skin, don't worry about putting moisturizer on. It won't make your acne worse. If you're still concerned, use an oil free moisturizer. 2. DON'T NUKE 'EMThere are lots of over the counter creams, gels, lotions and potions. Most contain a powerful bleaching agent called benzoyl peroxide. You'll find the strength written on the label. You might be tempted to go straight for the highest sort, working on the 'let's nuke 'em principle. The likely result is that you'll irritate your skin like mad. It may also go all dry and scaly on you. But if you still are willing to bleach then use the mild one. 3. MAKE A DATE - THE TWO MONTH RULEIf you have been using over the counter remedies for two months and there is no real improvement in your spots, this is the moment to go and make an appointment with your doc. 4. YOUR DOCTOR - THE TWO MONTH RULEThe thing you are most likely to be given by the doctor is a prescription for antibiotics. These will either be topical (which means something you put on your skin) or tablets you have to take every day. Whatever treatment your doctor or pharmacist recommends, follow the instructions carefully and keep using for at least two months. There should be a noticeable improvement by this time. If not, go back to discuss other possible treatments Antibiotics are perfectly safe to take. You should take them for at least two months and then go back to your doc. If they seem to be working, he will probably tell you to keep taking them and give you some more. If they aren't doing their stuff, don't despair - he has loads of other spot busters in his black bag. 5. YOU ARE NOT AN ALIEN - BUT JUST BE PATIENTHundreds of thousands of teenagers seek help for acne. You are not alone. You are not an alien. And if people really care about you, they don't even notice your acne, however bad you think they are. But you will need to be patient. Most treatments take time to work. At least two months. And some treatments, like antibiotics will work well but may have to be taken for months, or even years. 6. THE MONTHLY CURSE... OR EXAMSAcne does tend to get worse just before a period. It's because there is a surge in hormone levels at this time. But boys don't get away lightly either. Being hot and sweaty (particularly after sports like football) makes acne worse. And for everyone, stress - particularly at exam times - is a cue for a mega breakout. This is normal - and of course, even more reason for feeling stressed. Go chill. They'll get better - promise. 7. WATCH WHAT YOU PUT ON YOUR SKIN AND HAIRSome beauty products are big no-nos. These include pomades and defrizzing agents for hair that tend to cause an outcrop of blackheads along the hairline and some of the heavier cosmetics. And be wary of suntan oils. Not all will make you break out, but some may. Try a friend's first before you buy. By the way, the sun might dry up acne and a tan might hide them, but your skin is still vulnerable in the sun and needs protection. 8. CARRY ON KISSINGYou can't catch acne during kissing - go for it! 9. CARRY ON EATING CHOCOLATEIt's a myth that eating chocolate and fried foods causes acne. However, eating a good diet improves your general well-being and this is reflected in your skin. Common Questions asked about acne problem Does wearing make up cause acne?It is not necessary that wearing make up causes acne. Acne is caused because of hormonal imbalance mostly during puberty. But you have to take special care while you apply make up and thereafter if you have acne. Make sure you wash any make up tools, including sponges and brushes as often as possible as these become a breeding ground for bugs which can cause your spots to pop up. Stop wearing make up if you have too many spots and you can resume after you have treated them. Don't forget to clean the make up after you come home and and make sure you cleanse your face properly each night. Do skin toner and moisturizer cure acne?One thing that you need to know is acne is not caused by dirt, so no amount of cleaning and toning is going to get rid of them. So for treating acne you must consult your doctor and eat lots of healthy food and drink lots of water. That is the natural way to keep you face spot free. Is it ok to do facial?It can be a real treat to have the facial done, as they can be very relaxing and make you feel properly pampered. However, you should be aware that they should not be used to help 'treat' spots, as this can be quite dangerous if the beauty therapist is not trained. Sometimes a beauty therapist will also squeeze out any spots and blackheads that if it's not done properly, may cause a bigger problem than before. What is the best way to cover up spots?Foundation is okay to use and may give you more confidence if you've got a hot date, but remember to look for oil-free one. Whatever you use to put on your skin, wash your hands or sponge before applying foundation.Healthy clear appearing nails | Natural Sleep Aid | Fast Weight Reduction

  • You might have hormone imbalance. Washing your face too much can also cause acne, especially if have dry and oily skin. If wash it too much it out your skin which trys too compensate by secreting oils, causeing acne. Try using a mild soap like dove once a day before going to bed. Try this for at three or four weeks and see if it help. Going to a dermatologist is not a bad idea. Also the hormones in milk can cause some pretty major acne. Some farmers give their cows artificial hormones to make the cows produce more milk. You might try going off milk for a little while or going on hormone free milk, some organic stores carry it. If you there is a Braums in your area their whole milk is hormone free. Has a general rule, the lower fat the milk is more artificial hormones are in it. Hopefully these suggestions will be helpful. :)

  • 1)You can even try different types of facials depending on your skin type. They cause a pimple to shrink.2) You must know that the different creams that are advertised are not of much use. These medications don't provide a long-term cure.3) It looks bizarre, but toothpaste is another proven method to treat pimple from popping. You apply it just before going to bed, then wake up in the morning to find your pimple considerably smaller and more dried up than it was the earlier night.4) Use the oatmeal absorber. You can apply the oatmeal pastes for 15 minutes, then wash your face, dry it and put on the oatmeal mixture. Leave on that way until it dries off and then rub off with fingertips and apply a moisturizer.5) Wear oil-free makeup whenever possible. These types have less of a tendency to cause the pore buildup that results in blemishes.

  • HiI Am 18 Years Old.i Am Suffering With Huge Acne Problem.when The Hair On My Face Starts Growing Back After Shaving,my Skin Becomes Dry With Many Pimples.i Use All Gillete Products.if I Dont Shave,then Also There Are Many Pimples.is There Any Home Made Solution For My Problem?When I break out I take zinc and it goes away. I used 50mg. I have since learned you are not supposed to take more than 30mg w/o taking some copper as well, so maybe just try 25 or 30 mg as needed. They will start to go away immediately, which of course takes a fews days due to inflammation. Other nutritionists recommend Vitamin A. I don't know about that -- I am deficient in A and do not have acne. Vitamin A deficiency causes keratosis pilaris, look it up on Wiki. there are some possible reasons zinc works: (1) skin contains zinc and when insufficent zinc is consumed skin is made with larger pores to stretch out the available zinc, so at a time of growing more zinc is needed. Possibly larger pores are harder to keep bacteria out of. (2) Zinc is an anyi-bacterial (3) zinc is an aromatase inhibitor so it helps you keep your testosterone from aromatizing into estrogen...and it might also prevent it turning into DHT (although I usually think its 5-alpha-reductase inhibitors that do that). Anyway, zinc does have some connection to testosterone...

  • HiI Am 18 Years Old.i Am Suffering With Huge Acne Problem.when The Hair On My Face Starts Growing Back After Shaving,my Skin Becomes Dry With Many Pimples.i Use All Gillete Products.if I Dont Shave,then Also There Are Many Pimples.is There Any Home Made Solution For My Problem? hello there Billu007...here are a few home made solutions for you to try:* You will need to mix one part vinegar, one part apple cider or any other natural vinegar, and around 8 to 10 parts water to get the kind of safe mixture you will need to cleanse your face with. You can use a piece of cotton or a cotton ball dipped in this solution to wipe off excess oils on your skin as well as remove deep seated dirt from your skin.* Another one of the more commonly used acne skin care recipes that you can create in the comfort of your own home is an egg-white mask. This simple mask consists of nothing but a couple of stiffly beaten egg-whites. All you need to do is beat a couple of egg-whites until they are nice and fluffy and smear them on your face. You will have to let this mask sit for a few minutes or until it dries out, and then wash it off with clean, warm water. Then, pat dry with a clean towel. * Other acne skin care recipes that use egg-whites sometimes use dry oatmeal in the mixture to help draw out the excess oils in the skin. You can use this egg-white and oatmeal combination on your skin, but you must be careful not to use it more than once or twice a week since this may easily dry your skin out as well. HTH :D

  • Honey has lots of curing as well as cleansing properties. Open pores in face by applying warm water or mild steam and then apply honey. Wait for few minutes before washing it first using warm water. Cold water can then be splashed on face to close open pores. Wash your face at least twice a day (first time in morning and second before moving to bed). Wash more often in summers to prevent oils from getting accumulated and keep face clean. Remember to splash warm water before applying soap as that opens the pores in skin allowing deep penetration of skin by soap. People with oily skin must use water-based soap. Don't use body soaps on face as that may clog pores causing acne pimples. Soap must be rinsed off using cold water so that pores are closed.Baking Soda and Acne remove blackheads naturally tomatoes for acne
