If this helps i get really sweaty from skateboarding all day.|||many teens have oily skin and by washing your face every morning and every night you can avoid acne blemishes. try using PROACTIVE.even a man my age gets a few pimples from time to time. however mine come from shaving too close and the razor pulls at the whiskers and infects the hair follicles.when you start getting a few hairs on your face,wash your face before shaving thus softening the 55 now and i didnt start shaving until i joined the army in i have to shave everyday or sometimes twice a day.dont use a deordorant soap to wash your face with. use a soap that will remove oil from deep down in your skin.|||ok--your kidney is not doing a good job of breaking down the fats that are in the body; result, is acne.--Take medicine that will help your kidney to function properly.

What are some tricks for getting rid of pimples?

Okay, so I have this huge, red pimple on my nose and it won%26#039;t go away. Anything that I can do at home to get rid of it fast?|||Do not touch or pop the pimple. It will only make the pimple more obvious and risk infection and scarring. D: Instead, take up the following routine, twice a day, until it disappears.

Wash your hands thoroughly before you begin to touch your face.

Wash your face gently but thoroughly with a mild, medicated soap and warm water.

The water shouldn%26#039;t feel hot, and lukewarm is a little too cool.

Do not use a washcloth, as the scrubbing action could pick up and distribute bacteria to other parts of your face. It is best to use your hands.

Wash for about 30 seconds.

Pat your skin dry with a towel.

Apply a benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid topical cream on the pimple. If the spot is under the surface of the skin and hurts to the touch, use benzoyl peroxide. Salicylic Acid should work well for all other acne spots.

After topical treatment is dry, apply a basic face moisturizer (preferably allergy-tested, fragrance free, and oil free). Without moisturizing, the skin around the pimple can dry and irritate your skin, possibly making the pimple more inflamed and noticeable. Some contain a mild sunscreen, which is often recommended with some acne washes and medications.

Cover the pimple with medicated concealer (optional).

Learn how to prevent acne in the first place, so that you stop that next monster pimple before it even starts.

Hope that helped. gd luck. (:|||Get something that%26#039;s really dirty like a used surgical scalpal and make a small incinsion right on the pimple. Once you have done this, dig it out with the end of a dirty toenail clipper. Once you have all the puss and goo out make sure you put neosporin on it so that it does not get infected. Cover with small circular bandaide. This is where you can get creative, purple would be my choice.|||Unfortunately there is no quick cure to pimples. I use Salicylic acid to get rid of mine, and it works really well. Toothpaste and etcetera work for some people, but are actually more harmful and irritating in the long run.

What is the best natural way to lose pimples?

I am breaking out and my mom said it was because of age. And i was wondering what is the best way to loose the pimples without putting anything on my face?|||I had some acne when I was younger.

If it is not to bad cleaning your face will help.

Take a wash cloth and soak it with hot water, not so hot that it burns but close.

Lay it on your face DO NOT RUB.

When your face feels real hot and you can%26#039;t take it anymore, pull the cloth off your face.

Do this twice a day once after you shower in the morning, and once before bedtime.

The heat pulls the oil out of your pores and the cloth soaks it up, should use a new cloth as much as possible.

If you get a pimple don%26#039;t pop it as that spreads the oil, thats also why you don%26#039;t want to scrub or rub the face.

Also try to avoid foundation\makeup as much as possible as it will clog pores. if you must use a concealer on individual pimples.

Good Luck they can be hard to deal with.|||cut out all sugar for 14 days and exercise.once you go 14 days without sugar you can have a little bit but not to much if your skin is still clear you can have more until you break out then you know that%26#039;s your bodies threshold for sugar.if u limit it as much as you can your skin will be awesome.just try it it really and truly works. good luck|||well with out putting anything on your face you could..... eat healthier foods, not salty.

Also when done with soap and rinsing off face make sure it is rinsed off real good about 5 times with water. Any soap residue will cause breakouts if left on face too! Use a toner too helps afterward just a quick swipe over face while pores are still open from hot steam.|||Why don%26#039;t you want to put something on? Good luck. When I started having pimples, nothing worked: clearasil, clean %26amp; clear, proactiv, drinking plenty of water, washing my face, eating fruit, even facials.

Don%26#039;t worry. Things will be alright soon.

I understand your problem. The acne can be easily controlled and cured by following simple lifestyle modifications.

I suffered from acne for several years and I developed 10 easy steps to get rid of acne. I also cured my acne completely.

Why don鈥檛 you see my website? I hope it will definitely change the way you loom at your acne problem. I will be very happy if your acne is cured by any method.|||First of all, wash your face at least twice a day. When you wash your face you should use warm water first, then you can wash your face with a normal soap. Then rinse your face with COLD water. warm water will open your pores, so you can wash them well. cold water will close your pores so dirt will not get in them. your pores will not be all the way clothes, but this will help. Also, try not to stress about small things. I think stress increases pimples. I hope I helped. Oh yeah, that thing about eating chocolate will give you pimples, that%26#039;s so untrue!

How can i get rid of these tiny pimples on my arms and shoulders?

I have these small pimples on my arms that have been there for about a year. you can barely see them, but when you feel my arm you can feel the tiny bumps. what could get rid of them, and what are they? also, i have this red pimple on my face that has been there for a long time, what can i do to get rid of it, should i use oxy or whatever?|||Re: the persistent red pimple. I suggest you see your doctor or a dermatologist because you may need a topical antibiotic to get rid of it.

As for the tiny pimples on your arms and shoulders, it may be a case of keratosis pilaris (build up of skin cells around tiny hair follicles). Use a lotion w/ lactic acid to exfoliate and get rid of them, such as Lac-Hydrin.

Here are a few helpful articles with more information:鈥?/a>鈥?/a>|||u should go see a doctor...they will give u this cream or wat so ever and u should put it on,,,,i heard tht oxy makes it worse but u cany try tht also|||they actually aren%26#039;t pimples, it%26#039;s called keratosis pilaris. a lotion with lactic acid should help. as for the mark on your face, if it%26#039;s not going away, you should see a derm to rule out skin cancer.|||You may use 3 MHz ultrasound for deep cleansing. Then apply some non oily cream. Now this area should be treated with IR or Red Light to give proper effect.|||Try going to They have endless amount of skin products.

I have asked two doctors and one shrugged the other said it%26#039;s in my genes-|||See a dermatologist, who knows exactly what they are by your description.

Depending what the problem is, you can try a body exfoliating scrub to get rid of dead surface skin cells and clean out pores. But pimples don%26#039;t normally show up on arms, so I%26#039;m suspecting it is not acne but something else.|||Get an acne cleansing bar, like Acne-Aid or Pan-Oxyl bar, and scrub your arms and shoulders. Or see a dermatologist.

Use an acne face wash on your face, and don%26#039;t use soap on your face because it can clog your pores.|||I%26#039;m not sure about your face because I get the same problem. But for your arms try using a pumice stone when showering on your arms and use a super moisturizer after like shea butter. It works for feet, elbows, knees and anywhere you want smooth skin.

Hope you find something that works.|||I have heard that alcohol can do the job also and proactive. I know proactive works because I use it and it%26#039;s my best friend.|||are they really pimples?

Oh they were horrible! I didn%26#039;t know if it was a rash or what. I tried everything! 2.5% hydrocortisone cream, prescription acne cream, loofahs, face scrubs, body scrubs, back brush... I even changed laundry detergent thinking it was an allergy. Nothing worked. About a month ago I was at the mall and was accosted by one of the kiosk men. He had me try this stuff called %26quot;Obey Your Body%26quot; Body Scrub on my hands. It%26#039;s basically an exfoliant made with dead sea minerals and natural waxes and oils. It%26#039;s absolutely amazing!!! I was so impressed I ended up begging for a deal cause it%26#039;s $40 a jar (I bought multiple jars). It%26#039;s the best thing I%26#039;ve ever used on my skin. I used it all over my body before my shower the next day, and the bumps on my thighs are GONE!!! They%26#039;ve been gone since, and I haven%26#039;t used it again. My entire body is smoother than I can ever remember. I sent a jar to my friend Kelli in Iraq and she loves it too. They have a website according to the jar. Google %26quot;obey your body%26quot; and you%26#039;ll find it. I don%26#039;t want to put it in here in case it%26#039;s considered spam, but I truly love this product. I have recommended it to everyone I know.|||For the little pimples, you need sunlight and lots of lotion. Those little bumps are dry skin. Use a loofah or exfoliator every other day in the shower and moisturize your skin right after your shower, while your skin is still warm and relaxed from the water. Make sure you drink enough water (not juice, not soda - water). You might be able to get the red spot to go away by placing a warm tea bag (I use green, not sure if it matters) on it a couple times a day. If it%26#039;s a real pimple, the warmth and dampness of the tea bag will help draw out whatever%26#039;s in it so it can heal. Otherwise, check with your Dr to be sure it%26#039;s not a cyst or a permanent mark.|||Get out in the sun.....this always helps me.|||It could be just dry skin, but if you use a moisturizer and loofa and still have them I would go to the doc to see what it is.

As for the mark on your face if it has been there for a long time you might want to go to a doctor for it, most acne will clear up or change if left untreated, not just make a red mark.
