Simple ways of acquiring a clear & blemish free skin

It is not necessary to go to expensive beauty parlours or buy expensive creams and lotions to acquire a blemish free & clear complexion. A few homemade remedies are provided below which will serve the purpose equally well. Hope this will benefit the readers.

1. Always wash your face with mild soap so that the pores breathe fresh air. For a clear and attractive skin mix besan, turmeric (haldi), lemon and milk together. Make a paste. Apply it on the face. Let it dry. Wash with clean water. Wipe your face with a soft towel and pat it dry.

2. Rub a rind of lemon over your face if you have an oily skin and this will lessen grease and whiten your complexion.

3. To give velvet smoothness to your skin, just throw in a little starch to the water of our bath.

4. To avoid blemishes, drink first thing every morning a glass of carrot juice.

5. An effective treatment to clear complexions is the mixture of besan with cucumber juice rubbed over the face, neck & arms.

6. Tomatoes cut in half and rubbed over the face are useful for toning up & whitening the skin.

7. An occasional face pack of ice is a good tonic for the complexion.

8. Mixing equal quantities of lime & cucumber juice and applying to the face is also beneficial. It acts as astringent & bleaches the skin.

9. A simple recipe for blemish free skin is as follows:
50 gms channa dal (besan)
10 gms. Fenugreek (Methi) seeds
2 tbsp of turmeric powder
Powder the above and store it in a container. Use a little of this powder mixed with milk cream and wash the face daily with this instead of soap.

10. Chop banana skin and prepare a pulp with milk or curd. Apply on face.

11. Apply a mixture of 2 teaspoons of buttermilk & a few drops of almond oil & rose water on face & neck for nearly half an hour. Then wash it off.

12. A mixture of rice flour and milk applied on the face acts as a good facial.

13. A mixture of masuri dal (red lentils) and curds applied on the face for about 20 minutes imparts freshness to the face. Also check this Homemade Masoor Dal Face Scrub.

  2. Thanks Tipdiva, Channa dal is chickpea flour, also called besan in 'Hindi'. I've specified the wikipedia link and methi is fenugreek.

    A soft, smooth and supple skin can take your confidence to that height you were dreaming for. A natural glow on your skin comes with proper care of your skin. Skin products available in the market take away the natural oil from your skin and make it dull and dry.

    A moisturizing will protect your skin from moisture loss, helping to keep it soft, smooth and supple. It will also protect your skin from the penetration of grime, chemicals and bacteria. We all need moisturizers, even those of us with the most oily skin, but obviously it's important to choose the correct one for your skin type.

    Apply moisturizer to your skin while it is still slightly damp from balancing. This enhances the moisturizing effect. Spread it gently, first on to your neck then up on to your face being careful not to drag the skin - particularly around the delicate eye area.

    Make sure you use moisturizer with vegetable oil base. Mineral oil is not compatible with skin so baby lotion and petroleum jelly products are therefore best avoided

    Foundation can be spot-applied to the areas where you need to even out your skin tone. Remember to set your face with loose powder after application.

  30. Anonymous4:32 PM

    If you really want that airbrushed look, use a foundation brush. Using your finger doesn't give you even coverage and can leave you with blotchy spots. Using a sponge will give you better coverage, but the sponge absorbs half the make-up; that's money down the toilet. With a brush you're getting even coverage and you can easily clean the brush with your face cleaner, so you don't carry anything from day to day. Shop around and find what works best.
    And always work with a clean palette!
    That means wash your face and apply a toner to remove any residue that your face wash may leave behind. Apply a moisturizer. Then apply your foundation.

    Cleaning and caring for the inside is just as important as the outside, maybe even more. If your body is filled with healthy nutrients, it has nicer tools to use when it makes your new skin cells. Eat more fruits and vegetables that are darker and more colorful; they have more vitamins in them. Vitamin A maintains and repairs skin tissues. Vitamins C and E act as antioxidants and protect the skin from the sun's ultraviolet rays and pollution.

  35. Panchami3:10 PM

    Care for your skin by indulging in moisturizing and nourishing routines. Cleanse the skin with cold creams followed by alcohol free skin fresheners. Moisturize the skin while it is damp to get the best results. Make your own effective moisturizer by blending together three- fourth cup rose water, quarter teaspoon each of honey and glycerin and a teaspoon of vinegar. Use this mixture regularly after cleansing. Make a face mask with mashed banana and vegetable oil. Apply this paste and rinse after a while. This will help nourish the skin and relieve dryness. Some other aspects that will help keep skin moist and supple are avoiding going out in the sun without protection, using Luke- warm and not hot water for bathing and using alcohol free skin products and buying oil or cream based skin care products.

    There is no magical way to get flawless skin, even the people you see in movies and ads have been airbrushed many times for perfection. The best thing you can do for healthy skin is eating a good diet, lots of fruits and veggies, and drinking lots of water. Put moisturizer (kind of like lotion for your face) on your acne. Don't go to tanning salons - you may look ok now, but later that tan will give you sun spots, wrinkles, cancer, and gross marks on your face. You can ask your doctor or go to a skin specialist (called a dermatologist) for a special medication that won't dry out your face, maybe something stronger than what you have been using. Wash your face 1-2 times a day, don't use too much face makeup, and when you do look for products with "non-cogmengenic" labels which won't clog your pores. Resist touching or picking whatever acne you have, and make it a habit to not touch your face at all. Not only will it help with clearing up your skin, but it will help with not spreading diseases and sicknesses.

    The best way to take care of your skin is by using a cleanser every morning and night. This will keep your face clean and make you feel fresh. Then every other day or a couple times a week use an exfoliator or scrub. This will unclog your pores and remove dead.dry skin. Follow up with a moisturizer.

    If you have acne, lots of blemishes, or oily skin try neautrogena products they work very well and are not too expensive. If you have few pimples that keep popping up use neutrogena on-the-spot acne treatment. This gets rid of that blemish fast. Biore Blemish fighting ice cleanser has gotten some great reviews, although i haven't tried this myself(link below).

    For more sensitive skin i recommend aveeno. Aveeno has the gentlest products and they work excellently. Aveeno clear complextion foaming cleanser is great and so is aveeno positively radiant cleanser. I love the cleansing pads that aveeno has. One side of the pad exfoliates and the other cleanses. I find that you don't need to use a whole pad so cut it up into 4ths.

    Aveeno skin brightening daily scrub. is an excellent gentle scrub that you can use every day. This evens out your skin tone and gets rid of small bumps,etc. If you have more acne or blackheads use Neutrogena Pink Grapefruit Oil-Free Acne Wash Foaming Scrub. This gets rid of blemishes and cleans out blackheads. Olay dual action cleanser and pore scrub was very good for minimizing blackheads, it doesn't smell very goos though.

    For a moisturizer. Nivea soft is really nice. It's great for cold weather and very dry skin on your cheeks.

    Grind oatmeal, add lime or lemon juice, honey and almond oil. Make a past and apply it to your face. Leave it for 15 to 20 min. Your skin will look shinner, smoother and the dark spots will get lighter. I have been doing this for the past week and I could see results.

    In my view as I found in my search that, if you always control your diet, you can get a glowing and fair skin. If you do not have a dark skin heredity. Always use natural or recommended products on your skin

    tanning dries out your skin! bad idea! and UVA and UVB rays make you look old.
    this seems silly, but it totally works. Get a cucumber and "juice" it by crushing it in your hands. add a few drops of lemon juice and apply to your face. it naturally lightens the skin.
    exfoliate regularly and always wash your face. if you tend to have dry skin, wash only at night, and for oily skin both day and night.
    and drink lots of water!

    eat healthy foods, drink lots of water. use a good pimple cream, i recommend proactive or rapid clear, change your pillow case every fortnight or less, don't touch your face..and if your popping a pimple use a sterilized pin and drain the infection out, if you pop it by squeezing it pushes infection deeper

    Rice powder and corn flour- It is absolutely necessary to exfoliate with a gentle scrub about 3-4 times per week to balance the skin’s moisture. Rice powder is an excellent natural exfoliating agent. It gives the over-stressed oily skin a new vitality and a healthy radiance.
    Make a paste with 1 tablespoon rice powder, 1 tablespoon corn flour and a few drops of lemon juice. Add water if necessary. Apply all over the face and gently massage in upward and outward direction in a circular motion. The rice powder removes the dead cells that accumulate in the upper layer of the skin thus cleaning up the pores. The sharp, citrus smell of the lemon refreshes and stimulates the nerves while the chemicals in the juice has a bleaching property that treats dark spots left by the various outbreaks of the oily skin.

    This pulp rubbed gently on the face and the skin polishes the area, clearing it of all impurities that cause pimples, black heads and spots.
    This gentle polishing, once every two to three days, reduces the formation of pimples/acne and cleans the skin thoroughly making it glow.

    Tips for healthy wrinkle free skin.
    Nature has provided us with many natural foods which are good for various ailments of the body. I have selected the following foods which are extremely useful for a youthful well maintained skin. The skin should stay wrinkle free , without blemishes or acne , taut and full of vigor. To maintain and encourage your skin to stay youthful , the following foods are useful.
    1. They are normal everyday foods and you will be surprised how much they can benefit your skin.
    Oranges contain vitamin C which is most essential to protect your skin from harmful ultraviolet rays . This Vitamin helps in preventing wrinkles by producing collagen in the skin.
    eat one whole fruit ( not just juice) everyday, regularly for beneficial effects.
    Sunflower seeds contain essential fatty acids which help skin secrete natural oils that lubricate it and prevent water loss. This helps keep skin soft and supple, improve hair texture and reduce blackhead formation .
    Take three teaspoons twice a week or use sunflower oil to cook your food in.Papayas are a low calorie fruit filled with the goodness of carotenoids releasing vitamin A. They have an anti oxidant effect and help in maintaining younger looking skin. One bowl ( apx. 200- 250 grams ) of fruit a day is enough.
    Whole Grains are a source of Vitamins of the B group. They help in replacing dead cells in the skin and in fighting skin infections. Niacin in whole grain helps skin cells to absorb nutrients and release energy. I
    n order to increase intake, simply replace your normal white breads with whole grain bread , biscuits and pasta with whole grain products.
    Green Tea is loaded with flavonoids and antioxidants. They prevent skin from UV rays and free radical chemicals in the atmosphere, prevent wrinkle formation and remove blemishes from the skin. Take Green tea without milk boiled in hot water twice a day to enjoy the beneficial effects.
    Pulses are a rich source of proteins that help skin glow. They contain biotin which also helps in controlling hair loss.
    Simply cook well in boiling water to release nutrients and enjoy a protein rich meal.
    Aloe Vera is considered a miracle plant with multifarious positive effects on the human body. The juice of this plant is very beneficial for patchy irritated skin, helps prevent acne and skin pigmentation. Simply take 30-40 ml of juice daily for better skin.
    However do not extract juice from raw pulp but take the juice available at chemists in pre-packaged form. Raw pulp if ingested without processing can contain some harmful ingredients which can cause stomach upsets and more. Go ahead and incorporate the above foods in your diet and experience smooth, wrinkle free skin.
    You may note that simply taking minerals and vitamins in pills will not help the skin. It is the hidden nutrients in the fruits that are a must haveWrinkles

    Just washing your face is not enough. You're ********* your face of natural oils and that causes your skin to produce more. Evil, I know. After washing your face, soak a cotton ball in toner (L'Oreal has a good, cheap one) and use over your entire face. After that dries, use an oil free moisturizer all over. In the morning, use an astringent instead of a cleanser. You'll have results in a couple days. I swear it.

    Exfoliate your face twice a week to get rid of dead skin and roughness on your face :]
    use a different toner maybe it's making you break out. I recommend this toner. It's all-natural and super cheap :]. It works really well. It could clear those zits really fast.

    You get a small container and fill it about a third way with apple cider vinegar. Then fill the rest with green tea. You can use water instead of green tea, but green tea is the best. It will work way faster and way better than water. I use this as my toner and whenever I break out, the toner gets rid of it fast.

    using plain honey works. Just put some raw honey, or unpasteurized honey and leave it on your face for at least 10 minutes, then rinse of & pat dry. I think the aloe will help. I've used it before and it helped a little

    Possibly the most effective way of rejuvenating your skin is through a doctor/dermatologist administered chemical peel. They use the bleaching product such as hydroquinone but with greater strength thus providing better results more quickly than would be the case with a whitening cream.

    For a scrub: use sugar and honey.
    Mix together but before you apply it to your face open your pores by putting a cloth under more hot than cold water and put it on your face. Then rub it on your face for about 3 min going in circles.
    Then mix together honey,1 egg yolk, olive oil or vitamin E drops (about 2 drops) stir together, rub on your face and leave for about 15 min and wash off and pat dry. This will help it with the dry look and will give a nice glow.

  130. Ichcha10:03 AM

    Change your diet. Seafood, cheese, potatoes, fried items, excess salt, sugar and food that contains high doses of iodine are believed to precipitate acne. Excess iodine is excreted through oil glands. When that happens, it clogs the pores and brings on an acne flare-up.

    Unsuitable make-up is another perpetrator of clogged pores. The pigments used in foundations, rouges and moisturisers are more often than not oil - or cream-based, and using them on acne-prone skin is invitation for disaster. The skin is a crucial organ for the body to expel metabolic wastes. Every time we sweat, our bodies excrete salts, water and other metabolic by-products. The skin needs to breathe just like the rest of us, and it is important to keep it free from make-up for at least eight to 10 hours a day (particularly when you sleep) so that the waste matter can be excreted, and the skin gets the opportunity to regenerate itself.

    Makeup is a great way to enhance natural features. A well-groomed face is free of blemishes, whether because of a proper skincare regimen or because of a proper concealer application. Makeup can hide skin or age-related problems easily. Products such as blush add a glow to the face. A useful makeup finishing tip is to apply face powder all over as it sets the makeup and rids the skin of shine and oils, creating a beautiful matte look.

    . Always remove your make up, before you go to bed. 2. Cleanse your face with a good cleanser or you can cleanse with milk which is a good cleanser. Dip a piece of cotton in cold milk and wipe off the dirt from the face. 3. Steam your face twice or thrice which will open up the pores and help you clean better. 4. After cleansing, use a mild moisturizer with aloe Vera gel which will give your face a young look.
    5. Before going out of the house, always use a sunscreen lotion so as to avoid sun burns or tans.1. Lime juice is very helpful and is a good astringent and an excellent bleach. 2. Any cosmetics will not give you any immediate results. You have to wait for a fortnight atleast to get good results. Within this period itself, if you come to see any blemishes or burns or irritation, you can discontinue its application immediately. 3. Instead of mixing lime juice with yogurt, you can apply just the lime juice on your face as that alone is a good bleaching agent. Though you may feel a little irritation in the beginning, it is good to use it separately for more good results. 4. Once it becomes dry, you can splash your face with cold water and apply a good moisturizer to retain the moisture.

  151. Kavita12:10 PM

    If you stay out the sun a bit more, it should fade after time, but what you can do as a natural remedy is to use lemon juice (natural is best).
    Because lemons are so acidic, it's important to dilute it with water to about a 1/2 lemon, 1/2 water, or even 2 part water and 1 part lemon.
    I would start out with 2 part water and 1 part lemon because you want to get your skin used to it first, or it might become really irritated.

    I would start to use this every second or third day and after you wash your face in the morning, just splash a bit of this on, you could use a cotton wool ball, but I find that If you use it as kind of a rinse, it prevents your skin getting blotchy and uneven.
    If your skin stings when you put this on, water it down some more, or stop using it altogether.
    I'm not sure how long exactly this will take to see a huge difference, but I have used this before but my skin was already sort of light, it just lightened it a little more. Lemons do have bleaching/lightening properties in them, but the change could be gradual, just be patient with it.
    This is just from personal experience, just putting it out there, I have no idea if it will work for you.
    Something else you could do is use an exfoliant 2 to 3 times a week to remove dead skin cells and make way for the newer skin cells.

    o Those 8 glasses of water a day your mom always told you to drink are essential to maintain your skin's elasticity and suppleness.
    o And don't count coffee or any of the caffeinated soda as part of the 8 glasses because caffeine is dehydrating.
    o You need to give some thought and consideration to the type of make-up you use. And be sure to clean your tools regularly. Things such as cosmetic brushes get dirty and can bacteria and germs and may cause skin irritations and breaking out.

    o Keep environmental pollutants from being absorbed into the skin with a good moisturizer that also acts as a skin barrier, as they may cause marks and wrinkles.
    o Get serious about stress reduction, as this may lead to conditions like acne, dark circles, marks, pigmentation, and etc. Set aside quiet time to meditate and be sure to get enough sleep.

The massaging friction hastens a clear, new skin to emerge - see clearly noticeable results within a day or two and even better ones overtime depending on how vigorously you´ve been able to make it. Initially, skin has to adjust & if soreness, or reactions happen -stop & resume when you can. Find the pace that works for you - it's different for every person.
    Try it, you will be happy that you did. You will not need to use ANY other products or treatments ever again.and as it's a natural will not need any other one. Avoid OTC products - many contain countless harsh chemical ingredients that harm skin and are cause of unhealthy skin and many skin disorders and skin aging. As are many soaps, face cleaners. Also washing too frequently and too thoroughly harms skin.

    Try a cucumber or egg white facial. These will clean your face, ease up freckles (if you have any), help prevent wrinkles, and also give your skin a whiter glowing look. If these don't work for you, there are also lotions and soaps you can by at a Macy's that are designed to make skin paler and whiter with each use.

    It's always best to go natural. Many skin products/cosmetics have been found to be skin harming(some have even caused acne) skin aging, and even health harming. You can verify with a Google search. Here's my secret to a flawless, healthy and glowing skin. Massaging with essential oils naturally benefit skin in countless ways. They feed skin essential beneficial nutrients. Oils are perfect, safe moisturizers - you will never need to use any moisturizing products. If you massage face thoroughly you will see the results even in one day. Don't be afraid of massage. If done right it is only beneficial as many users on Answers will testify.(see my B.A.'s) There is no pulling or stressing of skin as you have to tighten face muscles to tighten or flex skin in the part being massaged and in doing so it exercises and conditions many of face (and some neck) muscles whilst skin is being firmed, smoothed and conditioned by massage. Skin will tighten, start to glow and look and feel smoother. This is the best treatment to revitalize and even rejuvenate entire face. Focusing massage on any blemishes or spots will quickly heal and clear skin and prevent others from appearing. Also focusing on any fine lines and wrinkles,(again being careful to flex skin) will get them to diminish and prevent others from appearing. See clearly noticeable results in about week. Treatment has given me a healthy, vibrant, totally flawless skin for many years. Also see happy users comments in my B.A. Try it - you will be happy that you did.

    Almonds have a high content of vitamin E, so they nourish you from inside. Almond powder can also be used in face packs to nourish dry, dull skin. Soak 3-4 almonds in water overnight. In the morning after peeling its skin, grind it to a smooth paste with milk and apply for 15-20 minutes for a glowing skin.More natural tips to have a glowing skin refer

    Special diet can lead to a great skin texture. Look what you must eat to have a young, glowing skin. Fatty fish (salmon, mackerel, sardines, tuna). Seafood, which contain large amounts of omega-3 essential fatty acids and omega-6 with anti-inflammatory effect. Fresh vegetables without starch, an excellent source of fiber and very low in fat, containing vitamins C and E, antioxidant and containing minerals such as calcium, iron, potassium and magnesium. Fat dairy products, especially yogurt with bifidus natural, which provides 40% of daily needs, helping bowel movements and thus the elimination of toxins from the body. Fruit and oil seed and oils extracted from them (olives, nuts, almonds, avocados, sunflower, pumpkin) containing minerals, vitamins (B and E ), but with a high caloric content, are rich in fat.

  179. A balanced diet, a healthy sleep, regular physical exercise, stress free lifestyle, strict hygiene, strict discipline in lifestyle will help in increasing the clearness of your skin.

  180. Baking soda and lemon juice helped me open my pores.
    Or you could try crushed strawberries and lemon juice.
    Using basic tape on your lips and skin can remove white heads/ black heads.

  181. you can use a grapefruit face mask. it really works. it makes your skin feel minty when your putting it on. this means your pores are clearing up and breathing, so thats proof that it works. it takes 10 minutes for it to congeal to peel off though, so if you do not have that much time like me, and exfoliating face wash works. my friend gets the clear kind with green beads in it. i cant think of the name right now, but it also gives you that fresh minty feeling that clears out your pores.

  182. To help keep my skin clear, smooth and soft, I like to exfoliate regularly. Since I live in a small town without much choice for skin care regimens from expensive stores and such, I found my own recipe. All you need is some white granulated sugar, as well as some brown sugar (about 2-3 tablespoons each). After cleansing your face, apply the brown sugar and scrub for 1 minute. Rinse, and then scrub with the white sugar for an equal amount of time. Since the brown sugar has larger granules than the white sugar, it scrubs deep, then the white sugar polishes your skin and reveals your fresh, plump skin cells beneath and helps keep your skin free of toxins lying on the surface. This remedy also works for an all-over body treatment… results guaranteed!

    Drink 8 cups of water a day at least! Don't have your hair in your face because your hair contains oil. Make sure your sheets are clean and sleeping on your back is the best way to sleep because your face won't touch the sheets! Shower after you did something and you sweated or wash your face with soap and warm water. Putting warm towels on your face helps open the pores and then you wash with cold water. And lastly you have to be healthy on the inside to look great on the outside so yes, don't eat sugar! Eat healthy foods, like vegatables and fruits!
    This will keep your skin looking great!!!

    Avoid any kind of peel (ie chemical peel). Your skin won't have time to heal up and you'll end up with flaky skin for your wedding!
    Personally, I think the Burt's Bees products work practical miracles! You need to keep your face REALLY moisturized, so I'd reccommend getting two; a moisturizer specifically for the day (under your makeup) and one that's okay to sleep in. Moisturizer underneath your makeup helps create a barrier between your skin and makeup. Burt's Bees have products for both of these situations. You need a good cleanser to remove makeup. The cleanser is only on your face for a short period of time, so almost any cleanser will do. Personally I use the citrus cleanser from Burt's Bees. You'll also need a scrub to slough off the dead skin on your face. Of course, I reccommend a scrub from Burt's Bees as well. The Burt's Bees line is paraben free, chemical free and not tested on animals. It's a GREAT natural product! (And no, I don't work for them, I just love their stuff) They have body washes and soap bars, too.
    You can use a toner after washing your face to make sure all of the dirt and makeup is gone, but these can be pretty harsh and dry your skin out. I personally only use them once in a blue moon (if I've fallen asleep with makeup on a couple nights in a row or something like that).
    Drink LOTS of water. Water will help flush the harmful stuff out of your system.
    Don't exercise with makeup on.
    Omega 3s are supposed to be great for your skin, too. You can take a fish oil supplement pill (the cheap ones taste very gross!), eat some fish, or drink some cod liver oil. From what I hear, the citrus flavored one doesn't taste bad, but I'm too chicken to try.
    Coffee and alcohol are bad for your skin, so I would avoid them for now if I were you.

    1.Eat healthy avoid too much greasy foods and junk food chocolate etc...
    2. Have a diet rich in -whole grains -Fruits -Veggies -Lean Protein -Good Fats (avocados, olive oil, nuts etc)
    3. Drink lots of water 8-10 glasses a day is what I strive for.
    4. get into a cleansing regime
    this is what I do:
    Morning and night -
    1. Splash my face with warm water to open up my pores
    2. Cleanse with Neutragenia Stress Cream wash
    3. Pat dry with a small towel don't rub!
    4. Pat do not Rub Neutragenia Toner with a Cotton round all over my face and let dry
    5. once toner is dry I apply just to the infected areas Neutragina Rapid Clear Acne Defense Lotion and let dry.
    6. Once step 5 is dry I Apply Loreal Active Daily Moisture Lotion lightly under my eyes for dark circles with my ring finger (has less callus) and in areas I feel need the moisturizer Do not put it on the infected areas
    This has been working great for me and I have extremely sensitive skin I'm always breaking out unless I take extremely good care of my face with this routine. Also if you wear make up always always wash it off before bed! Huge mistake for all women get that crap off it clogs your pores and you wake up looking worse than you would wearing it!
    Don't rub!
    Don't Pop pimples
    Don't Pick

    You should do it everyday.The Four Steps to Sensational Skin;
    Step 1: Cleanse
    Washing your face twice a day, with a gentle cleansing formula and warm water, banishes dirt, makeup, build-up and oil. But all cleansers are not created equal. The best formula is one that is suited specifically to your skin, designed to gently remove debris, without stripping away vital moisture. After cleansing, your face should feel fresh, not tight!
    Step 2: Tone
    Immediately after cleansing, tone your skin to help restore healthy balance. A soothing toning formula will remove any remaining traces of dirt, makeup or cleanser, hydrate, and return your skin to its natural pH level. Depending on your skin type, toners should be free of oil or alcohol. Look for natural ingredients like coneflower, chamomile or bitter orange peel that will treat your complexion gently and naturally.
    Step 3: Treat
    Now it's time to zero in on your skin's special needs. In this repair phase, you'll address fine lines, sun damage, discolouration, blemishes or uneven skin tone. Brighten, soothe, smooth, refine.

    Step 4: Moisturise/Protect

    Your body requires water to thrive, and your skin is no exception. Complete your twice-daily routine with an infusion of refreshing moisture. The right formula will plump up thirsty cells, making skin glow with radiance. It will also form an invisible barrier, preventing vital moisture from escaping and keeping damaging environmental stressors from penetrating. Day and night

  190. wash your face two times a day
    i would recommend the neutrogina graprefruit scrub for every other day
    for every day, any cleanser from walmart basically that's a clean and clear, neutrogina, or clearasil brand is good.
    use products with benzyl peroxide and salicylic acid.
    for spot treatments, benzyl peroxide is best. i like the clean and clear persa gel and also i like the clearasil overnight spot treatment
    stay consistent and this should work.
    if none of this works, and your acne is the same or worse, epiduo is AMAZING. it clears 100% of acne after a couple weeks! i love it soooooooo much it's my savior. BUT i didn't recommend it at first because it's a prescription product so you have to go to the dermatologist and get a prescription. also, it costs around $200 dollars WITHOUT insurance ( i know, really expensive) but only $60 with it and it lasts for like a year so think it's worth it but idk about you

    Use mild cleansers like milk or yogurt. When rinsing off the cleanser, use warm water. Milk and yogurt are natural remedies that have lactic acid---and this acid can gently deep-clean the skin. Be sure to wash the face a few times a day though, especially if it is very oily.
    To dry out the blemishes;

    I exfoliate lightly with a washcloth and a natural salicylic acid wash every day. Then I put witch hazel on a cotton ball and gently wipe it on after my skin is dry. Then I rub on some aloe vera gel, NOT the green stuff, the real stuff. After that, I use a benxoyl peroxide spot treatment on the bad spots. Just a little though, cause it can be drying. I then moisturize with either a shea butter body butter if my skin is really dry, or just a natural moisturizer if my skin is fine.
    My skin is pretty darn clear this way. :)

  197. Anonymous9:47 AM

    try aveeno products they are just strong enough to clear your skin but not dry it out. its called clear complexion i buy the cleansing pads or the cleansing creme and use it twice a day followed by the clear complexion moisturizer, you have to moisturize since washing strips your skin of essential oils. give it some time, be patient and be consistent and you will see results if you want to see pics of my real life testimony i can send u some just ask cuz im kinda uncomfortable posting them here. good luck and i PROMISE with time this works just follow thru.

    For me, lotions and stuff like proactive didnt work. Then i started taking a really low does pill because i got my period too often and it also ended up clearing my skin, but when i stopped taking that pill and started breaking out again, i started eating yogurt everyday and it made my skin really nice. its actually proven that yogurt is good for ur skin.
    sun is also really good for ur skin, like when ur face gets a little color its very good for mkaing your face nice and pimples free
