How can you get rid of acne without buying anything?
I've had acne for four years and I've tried proactiv, but it didn't help. any suggestions?

go to a dermatologist and they will recommend something that is good for your skin type

Proacive didnt help me either. What I did was wash my face with soap and water really well, and then squeeze as many zits as i could. I know your not supposed to, but thats just s scam so you think you have to bu products. After I squeeze them, I rub vigourously with rubbing alcohol. If yout dont have this, oyu can use regular booze, or cologne-both high in alcohol. If your using booze, dont use beer or something flavoured. Us plain vodka, which has a high alcohol content. After this, your pores will close.

So, youve squeezed out all the puss and bacteria, and youve closed the pore. Now, it will stop swelling, and not be able to fil with pus again. You can also just use plain alcohol in the moring to get rid of bacteria.

It's just a stage that everyone goes through. We all had it before, and some still get it every once in a while. For me, it was always sweets that set it off, or greasy foods. So I tried to stay away from those. It'll pass eventually.

Um, wash your face a lot and use rubbing alcohol. That may make your face irritated and dry, but it's cheap.

Toothpaste applied at night and keeping your face clean...including makeup since you dont want to buy anything.

I would also suggest seeing a dermatologist.

my uncle told me to do this...but the medicine worked so i never tried it but he said if u soak a cloth in hot water then put it over ur acne it opens up your pores and when the magic water gets in it makes ur acne go away. he said it worked when he was a kid.

Im still struggling with it as well. I have tried tanning before even though its bad for your skin it helped with my acne, or laying out in the sun,Im using mary kay time wise.Proactive didnt work for me either. I would drink alot of water to

cleanse. moisturize. repeat.

Use sulfur soap. Its dermatologist recommended, sold over-the-counter at any major grocery store, and inexpensive.

I'm not sure about the alcohol because it dries out your face, but I use to use toothpaste. It doesn't dry the skin around your pimple, but just the pimple itself.

I had acne too well, I've lessen them by washing off the excess oil on m y face twice a day with an Antibacterial soap and not those scented ones which irritates the skin. Try Dial soap. worked for me.

well Neutrogena face scrubs work great i use them 2 times a day and within a month my face was totally cleared up but make sure you never miss a day because your face get used to using the product and when you miss a day you get more pimples i love this product and it's not expensive

No BUTTER for you !!!
Lots of Hygiene, and when I say a lot I mean A LOT!!

If I were to recommend something that has to be bought:
First: a special soap such as ACNEAID
Second: I totally recommend ROACCUTANE (I used it for 6 months and HAVE NEVER HAD more than 1 or 2 pimples every 6 months, its magical), ask you dermatologist.

I've heard urine works, but thats just nasty

your diet plays a key role. It's very hard, and requires a lot of self control, but your skin will look great, your body will be in awsome shape, and the compluments will come pouring in. No oily foods like pizza, or french fries. Nothing deep fried, like chiken fingers and stuff like cheese burgers are donts. This is the only way, the list of things to avoid will exceed what to eat, but trust me- it is so worth it, just wait until those first "whoah you look great" compliments, double takes in the hall way, and jelous glares. Eat whole food- only wheat of rye bread, eat berries, no nuts (oils), salds, greens, PLEANTY of vegetables, and research which vegetables and fruits are the best for your complexion and acne, you'll be surprised on how your diet change will work a 100x more effectivley then any clean&clear prodcut from the drug store, or even high end "solutions" from expensive stores and spas. It's tough work, but you'll look and feel awsome!

Don't use rubbing alcohol , it will make acne worse. Also don't was your face too much. you wouldn't want to dry it out. Use
oxygen soap or lye soap, the mild kind. it's affordable and not hard to find. i found it at my local dollar store. you can look at a drug store or wall-marts. way not they seem to have every thing. though proactive doesn't always work on every one. it depends on your skin type. like sensitivity.but try my suggestions. they may work.but the thing that i don't get about lye soap is they it leave your skin feeling dray and tight at first
but oily latter on. the reason way i suggest this treatment, well along time ago the reason folks didn't have problems with acne is because they used this soap.and its good for a lot of other things. it say so on the pack, box, wrapper, or what ever it come in. i promise this will work. plus it also depends on your diet. try it and email me the results.

DONT USE RUBBING ALCOHOL! that will dry your skin out alot. as long as you have soap your good.... but if u dont u might as well but nutrogena clean n clear- i use it it works anywhere. eathromyicin works REALLY GOOD too but you need a prescription for that. Proactiv is pretty effective too. :)

toothpaste gets rid of pimples for me

I'm sorry, but if you don't want to buy anything you're out of luck. Some people are saying toothpaste, don't use it. Trust me. It messes up your skin forever.

The tricky part about acne is that the problem can
actually become worse if you overmedicate. That's
because acne medication can overdry the skin, causing
a boost in your skin's Sebum (oil) production. This
results in...you guessed it - more acne.

So what's the long term solution? Find gentler
solutions or even natural acne cures that won't
shock your body into more breakouts.

Here's what I recommend...

Glycerin based facewash:
Glycerin is gentler and will balance the
pH levels in your skin.

Antibacterial Soap:
For body acne, try using an Antibacterial soap
to slowly dry out the skin. If your skin gets too dry,
switch to a moisterizing soap like Dove to
counterbalance the effect.

Don't Overwash:
Wash your face only 2 times a day max and gently
pat dry with a towel.

Use a Gentle face moisterizer if the Glycerin based
face wash drys you out too much. I like using
Aveeno moisterizers personally.

Change Your Diet:
Eat almonds, fiber, drink lots of water and avoid
excess sugar intake. Food really does make a difference.
This is because the food you put into your body has a
direct effect on your Sebum (oil) production. By eating
the right foods, you'll minimize oily skin, thereby
preventing breakouts.

Egg Whites:
If acne medication isn't working or causing new breakouts,
try applying egg whites to the pimples at night before bed.
This natural remedy works by gently drying out the clogged
pores and clearing up the pimple.

Oatmeal Masks:
One of my favorite natural skin conditioners is wearing an
"oatmeal mask". The oatmeal with smooth your skin while
simultaneously absorb toxins and oils from your pores.
Try this for a few days straight. Wear the oatmeal mask
for 10 minutes, then wash off. You'll have a nice
glowing complexion right after.

Lemon Juice:
Lemon juice also dries up pimples and kills any bacteria
in the infection.The citric acid also balances your skin's
pH levels to prevent future breakouts.

Yes, despite your initial beliefs, honey is FANTASTIC for
skin care. Actually, you may notice on many moisterizers
that honey is an ingredient. Much like the lemon solution
above, honey balances the skins pH levels. Test out this
sticky remedy by dabbing pimples with honey and leaving it
on for 5-10 minutes. You can apply full honey masks to your
face but I prefer the oatmeal masks instead.
They're less messy.

Best of Luck!

I know you have probably heard it a million times, but wash your face. try at least twice a day. once in the morning and once before bed. try an exfoliating face wash at least once a week to Loosen dead skin cells that could be blocking your pores. I tried proactiv and it didn't really work for me either. I did go to the dermatologist and he prescribed me some stuff that worked quite well. If you have insurance, it should cover it. I only had to pay my copay. He prescribed me Zaclir, Differin and clindagel.

Exposure to sunlight. It works on the back (haven't tried it elsewhere). Just let the affected areas get a few hours of constant sunlight a day and that should work.

My boyfriend says to get Pure Benzoyl Peroxide. It's cheap. It's what kills the stuff and gets rid of acne. It's in a lot of acne
treatments, including ProActive. Good Luck. [:

hot towel

Wash your face more? Without anything is difficult.

Well, if you're not willing to buy anything you don't have any options. Even water and a towel to wash your face costs money.

Hot water & white vinegar in turns. Clear as crystal!

aloe Vera can help heal it quickly and it can help moisturize the skin. All you have to do is dab it on and let it do its thing! use it as a spot treatment or as a face mask.. you can leave it on all night (or day) !! i wouldnt use toothpast, because it may dry up the pimple, but it leaves a nasty red spot where your pimple use to be.. (chemical burns)


um... you shouldn't use any spot creams on your face (it is your face right) they work temporarily but the moment you stop using them your spots will come back. I used to have spots on ma face, but they're gone now.
OK, so lets get started:
1)every night and every morning, wash your face with HOT water (this will open up your pores). Then wash your face with any facial wash, but make sure you wash it ALL out. Then wash your face with hot water again. Then as soon as you've done this wash your face with COLD water.
2) make sure you never dry your face, let it dry naturally.
3)only in the day, put as little as possible lotion on your face (ideally an oil Free one usually is the best, but i use Johnson's baby lotion-its Gentle on skin)
4)try not to touch your face, unless you have to, like when your washing it.

if you stick to these your spots should start clearing up in the next few days, and in about 2 Weeks it will be a huge noticeable difference :-)
