How Can I Get Rid Of Acne, Without Drying Out My Skin?

  • Sharebar

I am a twelve year old girl. I get acne mostly on my forehead (mainly between my eyebrows), near my nose and on my chin. My nose is really oily too, i dont know why! I have used nutregena oil-free acne wash, nutregena rapid clear, and clearasil daily face wash, but all of them either did nothing, or made my acne worse, or dried out my skin! Right now all i am doing is washing my face with plain soap daily. It helps somewhat. My mom wotn let me use any zit cream or anything, only face washes, because she says the other stuff will dry out my skin. What is some things i can do to get rid of my oily skin and acne without drying out my skin?. Nothign too expensive, i cant afford proactive or any of that stuff. preferably natural.

    Applying lavander essential oil works wonders. I didn’t really believe it until someone reccomded I try it instead of the standard on the shelf stuff.
    Besides that, I have found the following things matter and tend to effect acne.
    1) Eating sugar (and artifical ones). If you eat no sugar your predispotion to acne drops a lot. Mine completely vanished when I did.
    2) Eating greasy fried food (aka fast food). I noticed I was able to feel outbreaks coming on as I ate the stuff. I think sugar matters more though.
    3) Getting rid of hair covering the face (so beards, sideburns, or long curly hair that gets to your cheaks). I don’t know why this one matters but it does.
    4) Washing the face with water from a shower. The more you wash it the better it gets. However, chlorine which is in all tap water irritates it as well, so if you get the chance to get a chlorine shower filter that goes a long way to fixing your skin (and hair).
    There are some other anecdotal things I am not sure of in anyway about acne, but I’d leave it as; if you are generally healthy then you will not get acne, so most of the time its best to just think of acne as an indictator for your body. Then again its a pretty awful one to deal with, and I went through a lot of grief before I figured out what I just told you.

    Hey, if your acne problem is serious, go see a dermatologist. It’ll prevent any serious scarring and all. By the way, don’t worry about it. We all have acne sometime during our life, I would know. :]

    Try this simple remedy. Wash your face twice a day in warm salty water. This should leave your face oil free without aggravating the acne like soap. The secret of keeping the skin clear is to keep it oil-free and clean. Check out for more useful info.

    this might sound weird but wet a rag and put salt on it make sure the water is hot put it on there for 15 minutes
