We don’t have personal experience with the product, but consumer reviews suggest it works well to reduce redness and swelling. Based on the ingredients list it takes a different approach than most treatments, so it may be worth trying if other over the counter products have failed.
hi Mia, I have been having bad acne lately and use a diluted tea tree oil and when they have gone I use rosehip oil for scarring. Do you know what oils best to use with the Rosehip to reduce the scarring quicker? Thanks :)!
Thanks so much for all the suggestions-I can’t wait to try them out! Unfortunately, one of my worst habits is picking at my acne and this leads to very prominent red scabs that take quite a bit of concealer to mask when I go out in public (at home I try to keep my face clear of makeup of course). But I was wondering if anyone knew how to treat either the vibrance of the scabs, or the scabs themselves. Any tips?
To mildly exfoliate, consider combining local or Manuka honey, which is highly antibacterial, with a small amount of coffee grounds. Follow it up with one of the other options for how to get rid of pimples I list below. (12)
The toothpaste worked well for me. It got rid of my pimples overnight. All the remedies are for certain skin types, so if you have oily skin (like i do) try the toothpaste. Also DONT USE GARLIC!! i put it on my skin and thought it would be fine. The next day it was red, then went brown, then starting blistering up! the garlic burnt my face! now i have a massive scar on my face! never use it!

Bananas are full of all sorts of goodness-even the part we don’t eat. Their peels contain something called lutein, an extremely powerful antioxidant that reduces swelling and inflammation, and encourages healthy cell growth. So…rubbing a banana peel on your face can reduce the redness, obviousness, and discomfort of acne. It’s (debatably) a better use than using it to trip your friend.
Topical treatments on their own may not be enough to give you clear skin, especially in those with complicated, inflammatory cystic acne. There are several acne medication options approved for use by the FDA, but which one is best for you is a question for your dermatologist and/or general practitioner. Baldwin says if you have insurance and you have acne, a prescription may be the best step because “it makes no sense to try to handle the condition yourself or to use over the counter products that are always less effective than prescriptions meds.” Here are a few of the acne medications you’ll want to ask about:
Claire, you are so smart! We are into natural cures A LOT in our household. TeaTree oil works the best for my acne. Who ever was having problems with cinnamon, I think you either screwed up with your ratios or you are allergic to cinnamon. You are greatly appreciated for your help!
Yoga is another form of exercise that you can do in the comforts of your home to help you deal with acne. Poses like the Rabbit’s Pose, Child’s Pose, Triangle Pose, and others help you relax and balance your body’s systems.
If you’re looking for suggestions on how to get rid of acne overnight, using toothpaste for acne spot treatment has probably come up. But does it work? Toothpaste contains ingredients like baking soda, alcohol, hydrogen peroxide and menthol that can dry out acne.
