    Default home acne remedies ????

    I use Proactiv and it generally works for me except a few lovely pimples seem to pop up during a particular time of the month --

    I was reading a few web sites that suggest lemon juice as a spot treatment and also a mixture of asprin and water ---

    just wondering if anyone had any ideas out there about this topic ---

    thanks :)

    My younger brother is a pharmacist and he did tell me about a home remedie that you can use for acne. I forgot what it was though. But, it doesnt involve lemons, asperin, and water.

    As for myself, Ive been using Murad (You can find some in Sephora) for years. The stuff works great FOR ME. My face is smoother than a baby's butt.





    VVV Oh Yea, I agree with Maevey about the drinking lots of water. That definately helps.

    I drink a ton of water, make sure I wash my face every night without fail and use Lush toners. The Fresh of breath air at night and the Tea tree one in the morning.

    I find that drinking water helps too. I also found that if I have too much pizza (one or two slices is fine, but no more than a couple times a month), I break out more.

    My Grandma says toothpaste worked wonders for her with acne, but I have never tried it.

    I got a clairisonic brush from sephora and its amazing!! as long as I use it everyday it keeps by skin smooth. There kinda on the expensive side but they are worth it! I used to use topical treatments for acne but they dried out my skin and stained my sheets. with the brush you dont use any chemicals, no more stained sheets

    I finally bit the bullet and splurged for a dematologist. He gave me Retin-A cream and Benzaclin. This combo cleared up my skin in less than 2 weeks and I've been clear ever since!!

    Also, if you make a mixture of asprin mushed in water to make a paste it is really good as a mask/scrub. Asprin is salicylic acid. Cheapest remedy out there.
