  1. A Brief Overview Of Baby Acne

    Small babies may develop acne because of the lingering maternal hormones after delivery, which may cause stimulation to the baby's sebaceous glands. Your baby receives these hormones from the placenta, after the delivery. Don't worry if your baby has pimples. About 20% of the newborn babies are affected by baby acne, also known as acne-neonatorum. Let’ know the various aspects of this peculiar type of acne. First things first, the treatment for infantile acne is not the same as that of acne treatment for any other age group. Infantile acne is gender-biased. Male babies are more affected than their female counterparts. Normally babies have the acne attack at the age of 3 weeks. Some babies have it from the time of delivery. Generally, the types of acne you find in infants are papules and pustules. Papules are red bumps and pustules are whiteheads. They have a collection of pus. Some babies also have acne on the scalp. Acne in babies does not require treatment as such. The lesions will take care of themselves within a period of four months. But do take the normal care of the baby as you would take care of its other body parts. Use mild baby soap and gently clean the face once in a day with water. Do not try harsher methods by using oil and other lotions which you think are good. They may at times, worsen the condition. Know for certain that infantile acne will disappear when it has to. In your anxiety to photograph the baby, don't stuff his/her cheeks with cosmetics and if at all you need to have the touch-ups, do it in an imaginative way. If you or your family doctor feel that the baby has severe acne, treat it with benzoyl peroxide, keratolytic agents or topical creams like retinoids. The ways of acne are indeed mysterious. If you have a family history of acne, that doesn't mean that your baby will have acne. And just because the baby has acne, it doesn't mean that it will suffer from the attack of acne, when it grows up. Acne has its own working style and attacking strategy. Infantile acne, which normally appears after the age of three months in a baby, quietly disappears after the age of 12 months. No special efforts of treatment are required. In some babies, the condition may last up to three years. It is due to the genetic makeup of your baby. You have something to contribute to it, as the hereditary part. You have nothing to do with the infantile acne, relating to the treatment part. Just observe its arrival and departure. Well, arrival with anxiety and departure with pleasure!
  2. I need an advice

    Use honey mixed with lemon juice while washing your face. Discontinue all the face washes and stick to Cetaphil cleansing lotion. Apply pure Neem on your face as a pack. Change your beddings regularly(pillow cover). Also, apply aloe vera gel every night before sleeping as a base and tea tree oil on the effected areas. Avoid exfoliation while the pimples are still active. Rest, if the irritation still continues, consult a dermatologist. Also intake of healthy foods like flax seeds, garlic in the morning.
  3. Bad Dermatologist Experience

    I think you should see a qualified dermatologist but I suggest using a moisturizer first, then a tiny application of Epiduo. The best way to use Epiduo is to start slowly, say once every second day, then increase accordingly. Some patients, especially with sensitive skin cannot tolerate this medication and will need to go with a milder Vitamin A combination.
  4. Acne Scars Treatment

    Hey there, try dermal roller... It can be very effective in treating acne scars but it is super important to get one that is clinically proven and safe. Every person is different so there is no magic timeline of when your scars will completely disappear. As with any skincare regimen you need to be consistent. How to use Cleanse your face or any area that needs treatment with warm water. Use a steam towel or a facial steamer which will open the pores and then apply normal skin toner to the skin. Use the dermaroller 2 times per week/10-15 minutes. When using the dermaroller, use a crisscross motion from top to bottom, from left to right and diagonally. Maximum of ten thousand pores could be easily created in 10 minutes. The absorption rate of 3000% of functional cosmetics is expected throughout the pores. After using the dermaroller apply vitamin e serum to help keep your skin moisturized. Apply it several times to calm your skin and to avoid skin irritation.
  5. It may be the peroxide and your skin is sensitive to it, or your applying too much. You can try using it just to spot treat, or if skin gets irritated bad use some cortisone with it.
  6. Acne when going vegetarian

    When I switched to a vegetarian diet I didn’t see much change in my skin. I still had breakouts and redness. It wasn’t until I started eating a strictly plant-based diet for a month that I saw results. Before I went vegan my skin was oily and blotchy. I would get new acne almost every day. Since going vegan I rarely get acne but when I do it’s minor and hardly noticeable. My skin has natural oils to keep it moistened but it’s very different from my previous unhealthy oily skin. You can still have unhealthy skin on a vegan diet depending on what you consume. You should know that along with eating a plant-based diet I don’t drink soda, eat packaged foods that have unhealthy ingredients (hydrogenated vegetable oil, etc.), and I rarely eat refined sugars (white sugar, brown sugar, corn syrup, powdered sugar). I also don’t wear makeup more than two or three times a month. No matter what your diet is it’s important to pay attention to what you’re putting in your body. Once you start to cut back on the things that cause damage to your body inside and out, you will begin to see real results in the overall health of your skin.
  7. Shaving Acne (Razor Bumps)

    The problem is caused by modern multi-blade razors. When you shave with razor that has many blades the first blades actually lift the hair out of the skin, and the following blades then cut the hair from below the skin line. That’s how you can get that really smoothly shaven feel. The easiest solution is to ditch the multi-blade razor and switch to either an electric shaver. It usually doesn't shave as close to the skin as blades do. So they don’t cut the hair below the skin line. With an electric razor be careful not to press the head too hard on the skin. Gently slide the shaving head over the skin to avoid irritation.
  8. Fruits healed my cystic hormonal acne

    Love this! It’s true. Many orange vegetables and fruits provide high concentrations of the A vitamin, beta-carotene, which supports a healthy immune system and skin. Vitamin A has similar effects on the skin as retinol medications, which are commonly used to treat acne, with fewer side effects. Vitamin A helps clear breakouts by drying excess oil and reducing inflammation. Vegetables and fruits that are rich sources of vitamin A include pumpkins, carrots, sweet potatoes, papayas, cantaloupes, apricots, peaches, nectarines and mangoes.
  9. Acne is ruining my life

    Like most acne medications, Retin-A takes time to work. You probably won't see any change for several weeks, and it might take a few months before you really notice a big difference in our skin. Just keep at it and try to be patient! After your skin has cleared up, you will have to continue to use your Retin-A treatment, although less frequently, to keep breakouts from returning. This is true for nearly all acne treatments, not just Retin-A. If you've used Retin-A consistently for several weeks and still aren't seeing improvement, your dermatologist might add another medication to your treatment routine or give you a new one to try. It's disappointing if you don't get the results you want from an acne treatment, but try not to get too discouraged. You're one step closer to finding the combination of treatments that work for you. Your dermatologist is a great resource, so if you have any questions about your Retin-A medication or acne treatment in general, don't be afraid to ask.
  10. Diet and Acne

    I recommend in order to see a decrease in acne, you should attempt to eat healthy food and drink a lot of water for about a month and you will see that your acne will decrease significantly.
  11. WTF IS WRONG WITH MY SKIN?

    Try to use a tea tree oil toner or facewash. If using tea tree oil directly, always dilute it with water and use a cotton to apply it on the acne spots. I am giving you some tips to stop acne: Wash your face twice a day, in morning and evening. After washing your face, it is important to apply a good moisturizer. Avoid touching your face with dirty hands. Never pop your pimples. Use treatments and face masks once a week. Avoid overloading your skin with makeup and products. Protect your skin from the sun. Drink at least 3ltr of water in a day. Drink less soda and carbonated beverages Go to bed early (10pm) and wake up early (6am). Even if you can't fall asleep, it's good to relax so your liver can rest and be ready for work the next day 20-30 minutes of light exercise every day, especially outdoors Practice relaxation techniques to worry less Practice better hygiene
  12. Very oily acne prone skin help!

    The most important of all the skin care tips to deal with oily skin is to keep the skin clean. Wash your face at least twice a day with a gentle face wash that is meant for oily skin. If you observe oiliness even after washing twice, you can use a wet tissue on your skin or use a natural cleanser like bessan (gram flour) to cleanse your skin. This will keep your skin clean and shine free and also prevent the formation of pimples. Another of the effective skin care tips for oily skin is the use of an egg whites pack. It effectively dries skin up the oil on the skin to reduce blemishes and tighten pores. Stiffly whisk together egg whites and apply it to your face in circular motions. Let it rest for ten minutes and then cleanse with water. A mixture of lemon juice and egg whites can alternatively be used in a similar fashion. The lemon juice helps clear out excess oil, while egg whites tighten the skin pores and smoothen out skin surface.
  13. Thank you so much for being so brave and sharing your success story with us
  14. Silicone Oil

    Silicone is not bad for the skin. The molecules in Dimethicone are too large to penetrate into the skin layers and only sit on top of the skin. By having this silicone layer on top of the skin, the skin moisture is prevented from escaping, thus helping keep the skin moisturized. On the other side of the fence are the detractors who say that silicones are in fact bad for the skin. Because the silicone sits in a layer on top of the skin keeping in moisture, it also keeps in any sebum, dirt, and bacteria that may already be on the skin. Once the skin is irritated, it will breakout. So, it is common to hear people say that silicones in products break them out.
  15. Acne is a common skin disorder that usually appears on the face, neck, chest, shoulders, back, and even buttocks of many people. But outside of this fact, acne may also appear on the butt, leading to the concept of butt acne or “butt-ne”. Butt acne, just like the facial acne, affects almost every individual. Of its total victims, many have found it depressing and embarrassing. It can be a sign of more severe acne especially when the lesions are large and painful. However, butt acne doesn’t have to control your life. Besides, some treatments for this problem are out there on the market. All you need to do now is to know your butt acne condition and understand what the treatments are for. Butt acne is basically caused by the same factors as acne found on the face, neck, back and chest. It may be a result of an excessive production of oils in the sebaceous glands, which are then attached to the hair follicle and produce sebum, which is actually an oily substance that will form a blemish if blocked on the follicle. According to certain studies, butt acne may also occur if the naturally occurring bacteria found on the skin multiply at an abnormal rate and clog the follicle. Butt acne may also be the result of severe irritation caused by the dead skin cells that are shedding too fast. Knowing that butt is caused by the same factors as to that of acne found on the face, neck, chest and back, the methods for treating butt acne is therefore similar to that of the others. One of the best steps to take first before opting for a certain butt acne treatment is to look closely at any form of the irritant which may be causing the butt acne to appear. The clothing you are using may be an aggravator of butt acne. So, you better change laundry detergents or some other cleansing products for it may help to reduce and eliminate the condition. If you have tried some of the typical treatments but none of them work, it is the very necessary that you consult with your doctor so to identify the possible causes of the butt acne you have. Note that if the lesions are really too big and painful, an accurate and proper diagnosis must then be taken to eliminate it. It is also worth noting that butt acne can be reduced or removed with an amount of cleaning. Most of the acne patients today usually practice certain daily cleaning regimen knowing that it may aid to remove the dead skin cells and dirt particles that may trigger the formation and development of butt acne. Finally, avoid picking or squeezing the lesions since it may only cause infection and scarring, worsening the condition.
  16. Please help I don’t know what to do!!

    A pink or reddish painless discoloration of treated areas is to be expected, usually lasting several hours. Avoid sun exposure and apply post-treatment medi-skincare products. Specific instructions will be provided at the time of treatment.
  17. Pimple turned dark..!

    Don't scratch it. You might aggravate the skin and new pimples can arise from it. Scratching will only lead to further irritation of the acne. You might be spreading the bacteria from your hand to other parts of the face or any other part of the body and the acne might spread. Yes, you can try bp
  18. Who Should Use Acne Medication?

    Anyone can have acne and it is a painful and embarrassing problem for most people.

As with most things, acne has a beginning, middle and end. It is a skin condition and the best time for acne medication is at the beginning stages. In the early stages of acne, the pores will enlarge and create thick oils. They will fill up with black and white matter and this will result in a black head. This is the part that will cause the acne and needs to be taking care of at once. The dead skin needs to be exfoliated and removed. There are many different kinds of creams and gels to use as a form of acne medication that you can find in the stores. You may find that these treatments work, or you may have to take it one step further and get a dermatologist to assist you with your skin.

It may take some work, but with enough information and some research, you will find the right acne medication that will help you get your skin looking clear and pure and give you the self-confidence that you deserve.
  19. Benzoyl Peroxide Side effects

    Benzoyl peroxide can be used as a spot treatment if you get very occasional acne but works even better preventatively if you apply it to the whole face daily (if you can tolerate it), or 2-3 times per week to the full face. Because it is drying (as are many acne treatments), make sure to use a mild cleanser, and to moisturize your face
  20. Pimples are caused by hormones and lifestyle issues, stress and diet. It is a temporary problem which can be easily solved by having a healthier lifestyle. On top of that, you can have a skincare routine. use exfoliants regularly for less blocked pores use antibacterial stuff to avoid infection Don't over cleanse and disturb your skins natural balance Please take care of your skin and be patient. Your skin will glow soon.
  21. Acne

    Antibiotics, especially in long-term use, are damaging your immune system, making it harder for your body to fight the acne causing bacteria and the inflammation. Have you heard about blue light therapy? It's proven to be very effective for killing acne-causing bacteria and is natural and side-effect free. Blue light therapy targets the sebaceous glands, and not the surrounding tissues, killing the bacteria that cause acne. Many patients see significant improvement in their acne after two to four weekly treatment sessions of blue light therapy. I would combine this of course with healthy nutrition and cleaning using the "oil cleansing method".
  22. Does this look like fungal acne???

    I would say that is comedonal acne. Here are the steps for steaming a clean face and getting the best results: Cleansing Exfoliating Steaming Applying a Mask/ using (Gly/Sal Pads)/Extractions Moisturizing 1. Cleansing : Cleansing your skin first is important so that you don't clog pores. Start with a fresh clean face. After steaming it will be more easy for you to remove comedones such as blackhead and whiteheads and small pimples ready to be extracted. When you steam your face you open up your pores and if you don't cleanse first, makeup, sweat, dirt, debris and etc. 2.Exfoliate: Gently exfoliate the skin with a gentle a scrub in small circular motions. Make sure to focus on areas around the nose and forehead. 3. Steam: After cleansing... then by steaming the skin this will cause the skin to soften and for pores will be opened. Afterwards, while pores are open applying masks and serums will be better absorbed into the skin, penetrating deeper and removing toxins. 4. Mask: After steaming applying a mask or any other topical solution will penetrate the skin deeper allowing the effects of the mask to more effectively promote healthier skin. 5. Moisturize: Moisturizing with the right type of moisturizer as your last step will hydrate your skin. And always remember to apply a broad spectrum SPF 30 and above to protect from UV harmful damage. And to promote and maintain healthy youthful skin.
  23. I would say that is cystic acne. Not SEVERE. but borderline, I guess. This can respond to the OTC treatments ( Benzoyl peroxide ) and a good skin care regime. Benzoyl peroxide is a treatment available to people with acne of any severity. It is available directly from pharmacies over the counter in a number of formulations that may be applied to the skin. Benzoyl peroxide products, which include cleansing liquids and bars, lotions, creams, and gels, are used once or twice a day. If it doesn't respond to that I'd suggest seeing a dermatologist to get some antibiotics or other specific treatments for the acne.
  24. Is CBD oil worth trying?

    Yes, due to the combined lipostatic, antiproliferative and antiinflammatory effects, CBD has potential as a promising therapeutic agent for the treatment of acne. If you suffer from breakouts, and you can get your hands on CBD oil, I encourage you to give it a try
  25. natural toothpaste

    When choosing a toothpaste, consider your specific needs. Has your dentist recommended whitening, cavity prevention, sensitivity reduction, dry mouth relief or another specific goal for your smile? Choose a toothpaste based on the recommendations of your dentist.
