How Do I Deal With My Acne?
Acne can be caused in teenagers just from the hormonal aspect of being a teen and genetics (that stinks!)
Many products on the market just don't work. If they work, what I am going to tell you is probably some of the ingredients in acne products.
To clean your face:
You can use oatmeal and add water. Rub this on your face and let it sit for 15 minutes. Oatmeal is a natural astringent that dries the skin.
Rinse off with water. Get a spray bottle or dab your face with white vinegar or apple cider vinegar.
Then if you want to, you can dab some hydrogen peroxide afterwards. By scratching pimples you can cause an infection so the hydrogen peroxide helps.
And stop touching your hair and face during the day. Do this treatment at least 2 x a day.
Here are other treatments you can try.
After you wash your face with a soap like Aveeno, use a cotton ball to clean oil from the skin with this cooling astringent.
Using Neosporin - Dad a little Neosporin on pimples and blemishes. The antibiotic helps clear up acne.
Phillips' Milk of Magnesia. Using this as a facial mask helps dry up the excess oils from your face, and dabbing it on pimples to reduce redness and to speed up healing.
Using ReaLemon. Rub the ReaLemon lemon juice over blackheads before going to bed. In the morning, wash of the juice with cool water. Repeat this for several nights and you should see a big improvement in the skin. Also dab ReaLemon on any blemish a few times during the day when you have a chance.
When you break out in pimples, mix 1 tsp of Corn Starch with 1 tsp of ReaLemon lemon juice to make a paste. Apply to the affected areas and then let dry. This treatment eliminates the redness and helps pimples dry up faster.
Remember, always consult your doctor before using any of the above treatments.
