If you have arrived at this page and have an acne condition, then this information I have specifically written for you. Not so long ago when I was a teenager, this condition affected me (although acne still very commonly affects adults even up into their 30’s). I am totally aware of not only the physical and visible side effects, but also, and more importantly, the mental and emotional problems that it can cause, including a damaged self esteem.
But, possibly just like you, I did nothing about it, stuck my head in the sand and just hoped that it would go away soon. News flash. You are most likely stuck with this problem for at least another few years. Maybe even 10 more years. Unless you do something about it!
Don’t waste these valuable and happy years of your life putting up with acne! Don’t be like me for years and tell yourself “it will go away in the next 2 weeks, maybe a month”. It won’t. All you need to do is step slightly out of your comfort zone and consider your options. You need to take action, or Mother Nature will. Trust me, why wait to fix this problem, when you may as well do it now, before you waste anymore time!
Now, if your acne condition is only slight, simple do-it-yourself remedies from home may improve the problem. In fact I’ll share some with you that worked for me. The two things that I commonly did before I took the slightly more drastic measure to permanently get rid of my acne was using toothpaste and a product called “Ungvita”. Applying toothpaste the affected area just before you go to bed (without rinsing it off) actually does help in the initial stage of the pimple’s healing process while it is still infected. In some cases, it actually halved the time that the pimple was infected (down from about 4-6 days to as low as 2 days), but still those results were wishy-washy.
Ungvita, found in your local chemist or drug store is a great product used specifically for all types of skin damage. Now at first, during the initial stage while the pimple is infected, it will be useless since your body is still fighting the infection and not yet in the healing process (this is where the toothpaste comes in). Once the pimple has settled somewhat (no signs of puss or any other disgusting fluids), start applying a thin layer of Ungvita to the affected area. First of all, it will reduce the redness and the sharp visual eye-sore. Second, the acne will start to heal very rapidly, sometimes twice as fast as usual, sometimes maybe only 25% faster.
Between these two methods, I reduced my acne healing time from about 3 weeks down to about 8-10 days, sometimes even faster, depending on the type of pimple.
But please note!!!! These methods do not stop the problem; they only speed up the healing process!!!!!!
Everything that I write here is all 100% from my personal experience. If you have been suffering with acne for months, or even years, these do-it-yourself from home remedies over all do not STOP the problem. You need the determination or maybe even the courage to pull your head out of the sand and DO something about it. Remember, the physical, mental, emotional, social and self esteem problems are not worth it and you do not have to deal with it if you don’t want to. Unfortunately, that means in some cases spending lots of money on products, creams, drugs, etc. That’s what I did. I spent lots of money on expensive creams and medication. And you know what, it worked!! Never again has acne tried to ruin my life. But… you may not need to do this. Especially if your acne condition is not overly severe.
The BEST way to tackle the problem with acne is to try new and slightly more intense methods each time if the previous one fails, of course, spending the least amount of money possible. So don’t jump straight into an expensive doctor’s prescription drug program. Chances are, you do not have acne that bad, plus they almost always have very negative side effects on your overall health. For example, Roacatin, usually a prescription drug which is very harsh and will most likely even do some damage to your body’s organs.
