  • Hi ValerieN, I have acne problem too even I'm 31 now. May be due to stress. I spent so much money on various products and nowadays I try to manage it by taking organic evening primose oil to stabilize my hormone and my acne seems to be under control. May be you should try it. And like what a2zlifestyle said - eat healthy food, I'm taking less meat and more fruits now

      Acne can be such a drag specially as a teenager. I remember back in high school when my skin had an acne outbreak. I almost wanted to drop out of school because I didn't want people to see me. I was really hard back then because there were limited treatments unlike now that
      there are a lot of alternative acne treatment . You can choose a more holistic approach ei: exercise and diet, organic treatment, commercial or cosmetic.

        I'm so sorry about how this makes you feel Valerie, my daughter had the same issues when she was your age and I did a lot of research to find ways to help. It's good to know that even though acne isn't curable, it IS treatable and preventable! It's caused by clogged pores and exfoliation is really important to prevent breakouts. The dead skin cells we all get combine with the oil in our skin (sometimes made more oily by hormones, so teens and women in their 30's and 40's are vulnerable) to clog the pores, then the skin cells combine with bacteria and inflammation begins causing everything from a few blackheads to more painful cysts. So be sure to exfoliate every day!

        • yuck I'm sorry acne is not fun! I still get break outs but I've found that exfoliating with baking soda helps me and makes my skin feel nice and soft.

            • You could get some home treatments very easily. If you want to follow my advice, clean your face with lemon juice twice a day. You'll feel your skin starting to sting a little, because it tightens up and eliminates bacteria. After that, dissolve some aspirin in water and apply it onto your pimples. Start with small areas, not the whole face. You should get results in about a week or less.

              • Hi ValerieN: Sorry to read about your acne problems! Have you considered trying a probiotic in addition to your acne treatments? Taking one may help decrease the inflammation associated with acne and treat any GI issues you may be feeling.

                    • Acne is a medical skin problem that usually begins in the early teenage years and can last until the 30s and even 40s. Acne hits people at a time when they most want to look their best. Some acne treatments can be bought over the counter but it is a good idea to talk to a specialist before you buy a product to find out which treatment might be the most useful to you.

                      • In my opinion firstly consult with dermatologist and take a treatment. also you can use some home remedy like tomatoes, cucumber, honey, and cinnamon. I have tried and also in the consult of my dermatologist because I want permanent treatment of my skin.

                        • Hey there!
                          I'm 22 and still deal with acne at times..it's totally normal. I had tried everything...dermatologists, various cleansers, creams, home remedies, facials, etc.
                          I found that it really is true..people that are worth having in your life focus on the inner you and not the outside..your skin will clear up some day, don't worry. I also found that I love all natural products and an all natural supplement. I like the cleansers made be "Desert Essence" and a supplement called Burdock Root...found at Whole Foods (and some "all natural" sections of certain grocery stores, sometimes.) Trust me, it will be ok once you find a routine that is good for you. Stay hydrated and do not touch your face throughout the day, reduce your stress, eat healthy when you can, and wash your face after working out. I had various stages of acne in my teens like blackheads/white/cystic at times. I truly recommend organic products.

                          • Hi ValerieN, I suggest you use the Aloe Gel made from the Aloe Ferox plant. It really works and you can find it on ebay.
