Is it possable for boys to get rid of acne or blackheads?

I am 15 and live in a "boys need to be manly" house. I never learned how to actually clean myself. Is there a special soap I need to use? Is it even possable to get rid of pimples and stuff? If it is possable would hand soap work?

I do not have large blackheads but I do get bad pimples once in a while. I have a lot of small blackheads on my cheeks, nose, and forehead.

I know pimples will eventually go away or I can pop them. Is there a better way to get rid of them or not get them as much? Do blackheads go away on their own? Can I pop blackheads?

    1/ Never, ever touch your face.

    2/ Use 3 facwcacecloths to wash your face, one to soap on, one to soap off with very hot water, one to rinse off with ice coldca water, in that order, once a day.

    3/ If you are under 18 take 5,000 IU of vitamin A once a day with a full meal

    4/ If you are over 18 take 5,000 IU of vitamin A twice a day with a full meal.

    Do not get pregnant while taking vitamin A. Do not take any more, like Accutane, it will stop you growing.

    5/ Never, ever. pick, squeeze or pop your spot. Read number 1 again.

    6/ Do this for 90 days.

    7/ Invest in a brand new pillow and 2 new or more pillow cases to ‘double bag’ your pillow. HOT wash every couple of days.


    A bit of advice given to me as a teenager, a bit of science as I am studying allergic reactions and vitamin A is a part of that. A bit of research: I sat in a lecture at the back and watched the acne prone pick at their faces, those with the worse acne touched their faces 32 times in an hour, the clearest complexions didn't touch their faces even once. I have circumstantial evidence that acne is the result of dermatophyte transfer from hands to face...where it does not get washed off and is well fed by hormones, sweat a

    nd oil...just a hypothesis... But it would explain why vitamin A is so effective as vitamin causes skin to remove dermatophytes.

    I never have had acne, a few pimples on my left chin where I am most likely to rest my hand.

    The secret is never to touch the spots

    The People’s Pharmacy reports that Milk of Magnesia applied topically, at night is useful. This is 10% Magnesium Hydroxide in water. Epsom salts, which are Magnesium sulphate added to a hot bath are also reported to clear up back acne.

    An increase in IODINE (Seafood, milk, Lugols) is often beneficial.

    The very latest treatment is super gross, but works: August 2014, T. Borody: Faecal transfer from someone with perfect skin (and I’d guess, same gender.)

    Hand soap will dry your skin. Use generic neutragina, clearisil from wal mart. Get a acne cream, either of above brands willdo. It can be found in make up section by 'face cleanser or wash'.

    They may have 'acne cleansing kits' that contain a pre-wash, wash and cream.

    Keep your hair washed.

    Cut back on sugar, drink more water.
