I'm 23 years old and just started getting zits. I almost never had them even when I was younger and in high school. What the heck? Anybody know the best thing for this?

A natural way to take care of them is to rub an onion on them.  Dries it right up.  I used them when I was a teenager.  There might be something going on the in the inside that is causing the change.  Have you made any changes in your diet?

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 (like Just Tomatoes or 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'm 45 and I break out.

My friend always tells me that my face think it's a teenager. Haha.

Tea tree oil and witch hazel work great!

i use proactive. i'm 26 that and when i'm running low and haven't gotten my stock in i'll wash my face with burts bees products or organic face wash. I don't use proactive nearly as much as i used to bc after i started using homemade masks my face felt so much more refreshed and the pimples reduced. I put honey on my face for 10 minutes then rinse real well with luke warm water. I also mix that with some oatmeal and sometimes i'll use a banana and plain fat free yogurt on my face for 5-10 minutes. I do this once or twice a week and it has dramatically changed my face!

From Trader Joes but I've also gotten it at the farmers market. There's a gal that makes hand made soaps and she sells it.  Some small pharmacies carry it too.

REALLY!  Trader Joe's.  I could literally walk to our Trader Joe's.  I've never thought to look there.
