How Can I Get Rid Of My Acne Quickly?

Cartoon girl with acne

If your acne is worse than a single zit once in a while, try using products that are a little stronger. A great brand that doesn’t require a prescription is Proactiv – as long as you use it every day as instructed, you’ll start seeing a difference in your acne (hopefully just in time for prom!). The face washes are great and work for a lot of skin types, plus it’s not going to cost you a ton of money.

But if your pimples are out of control, you should probably take a trip to the dermatologist. Your doctor can check out your skin type and prescribe some products that are super strong. It can be expensive, so maybe make this your last option.

And keep this in mind: you’re always going to notice the zits on your face, no matter where they are, but that doesn’t mean everyone else is. Stress only makes acne worse, so don’t worry about it too much. One or two pimples aren’t going to ruin your appearance!

take care,

    I’ve used St. Ives Naturally Clear scrub and it works wonders! Then afterwards I use that St. Ives Fresh Skin that gives me a nice soft clear look. Then in the end I use an Aveno facaial mosterizer. MAGIC!

    Sea Salt: helps heal acne faster and is really good for the skin.Take the sea salt pour it into a pot of water, let it boil, rest your face over it, this will help open up the pores and gets the toxins out, do this 1 or 2 times a week. After steaming wash your face with a cetaphil soap which is a antibacterial or jason tea tree soap or pears soap which is hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic. After follow up with a toner and lotion. Apply lots of good quality moisturizer such as 99% Aloe Vera gel while avoiding harsh and un-natural products. If you want more information, go on to

    Good luck!

    What I used to do before I got on Birth Control was use those Stridex pads and wipe my face down with them and on the pimples that were there or about to form I would put a dab of Clearasil acne cream. I would apply those before bed and would RARELY get pimples. If I didn’t have any pimples I would just wipe down with the Stridex pads. Worked for me! :]
