What are some home remedies to get rid of...

I was just wondering if anyone knew of some home remedies to get rid of acne? Since I have been on the IUD Mirena, my face has broken out really bad. One day my face will be okay and then the next I have like 3 huge pimples!! I dont plan on getting off of it until my time is up, but I was just wondering if there was something I could do without paying a fortune to visit a dermatologist.

  • Here is how my teen handles her acne: wash your face twice a day with a very mild soap (like unscented baby soap) and a soft wash cloth; follow with a light, oil free moisturizer (she uses Lush). Once a day, before you wash your face, put on a honey mask (just honey, a great anti-bacterial). Every three days add a pinch of baking soda to the honey to exfoliate. Check back with me in two weeks and tell me how this worked.

  • I would have breakouts a lot. I went and had a face peel. It was the radience (sp?) peel. That really helped! It was $150.00. The woman told me that sometimes our skin needs a "reboot" and the peel takes off all the old skin that cannot be removed thru exfoliating alone and then the peel will stimulate healthy skin growth.

  • Also make sure you are drinking lots of water. I also love the Clarisonic face brush. You can use it with any face cleanser you already use.

  • Drink plenty water and Rubbing lemon peel on the skin helps in reducing whiteheads and blackheads.
