Stuff that gets rid of acne?
I’m 14 and lately my acne has gotten kinda bad. It’s mainly my forehead though. But it bothers me! I miss having clear skin so much! Is there any scrubs, washes, masks, ANYTHING that you used that worked if you ever had this problem? I need ideas!!!

Retinol-A is great for this. Accutane is a prescription drug that also works extremely well BUT it can't be given to females of child-bearing capability because of it's extreme effects with respect to fetal development.

NATURAL ACNE PROTOCOL
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.)

The best advice is to see a dermatologist.

Give up junk foods. Eat more veggies. Give up sodas, especially. Drink plenty of water.

For normal acne: Use soap and water. This is not a joke or sarcasm. Ordinary bath soap is naturally antibiotic and kills bacteria on the skin as it removes dirt and oil.
Wash your face when you get up in the morning, before bed at night and perhaps once during the day. You don't need to scrub with a harsh washcloth. Just use water and soap, gently rubbing it in with your fingertips. Rinse THOROUGHLY.
Keep your face clean of oil and makeup.
There are many companies that will be glad to sell you expensive creams and ointments and they may help some, even though they can clog your pores. (The instructions on those products always begin with “Wash face thoroughly.” Then they credit their product for acne clearing up.)
There is nothing, absolutely N~O~T~H~I~N~G that works as well as soap and water, two or three times a day.
Having said that, you should know that sometimes acne could have certain medical causes. If it persists, talk to your doctor. This is no small matter. Acne can leave permanent scars.
