Crazy things you've done to get rid of your acne

Recommended Posts

craziest thing i prob did was put a big ice pack on my problem area (my whole face) for a while hoping cryotherapy would work as a preventative measure.. i guess i took the 'ice on a zit' theory a little too far.

I've once used the "search" option and found that there's already a huge thread on this topic.

Sorry... just had the urge to act like a "vet".

I once slept overnight with Queen Helene's mint julep mask on my face. Needless to say, it didn't work! :naughty:

thats not crazy- i have a friend who does this religiously and her skin is gorgeous. also, a lot of people use it to spot treat and leave it on overnight.

Aye, it works nicely for me as well.

I went on the all raw diet for 3 months. This include a lot of Raw meat and I would mix raw honey with it. I ate raw chicken, raw eggs and raw bacon. I read that this is best for your body and would clear you up. yeah I don't do that anymore, just crazy.

Went through some unregulated channels and did some things that are probably best left unsaid.

[edit: on second thought, it's probably not good to give some people ideas. Very risky thing to do.]

Got laser treatment hoping to fade my scars/discolorations. Such a waste of money. And my dermatologist later told me it's not recommended - especially for people w/ active acnes. Yea, thanks for that cosmetic clinic for not mentioning it to me cause they just want to make money.

I tried sandpaper on my nose. I was around 15 I think. Had tried every product and nothing worked. I hoped it would peel and reveal clear skin underneath but no.

Fuck lasers tbh. I hate that they push it so hard.

My crazy thing that actually works is potato slices. I peel one and stick the peels all over my face. Look ridiculous but it improves my hyperpigmentation and improved active acne when I had it. Better than any product I've used. Edited by Kay24
