Steaming your face is quite good, unblocks your pores. Once you've done that and washed your face with cold water, apply some antiseptic cream from Boots (comes in a blue tube).

it's expensive, but my sister told me about this:

http://www.boots.com/en/Zeno-Acne-Cl...-Device_53385/

you zap your spot a few times, not quite sure how it works, but she had a spot and it was made significantly less noticable after only 24 hours

(sounds like an advert =/ )

edit: http://www.myzenoeurope.com/zeno.php some more info

Seriously, forget all the treatments you can get at Tesco - go straight to your doctors.

I am currently on doxycycliene tablets, which stops me getting 99% of spots, as well as isotrex gel. The gel is for the remaining 1%, which makes them go down in 2-4 days as opposed to a week.
Prior to that, I was on oxytetracycliene and some sort of topical cream, but I became immune to those and they stopped working.
Depending how bad your spots are, you might be put on Accutane or Roaccutane, which is powerful stuff with a lot of side effects, but it clears up your skin rapidly.

It's different for different people.

Lot's of water helps me, also toothpaste overnight.

That's the best way without getting creams, etc.

^^ This. Going to the doctors is by far the best choice; the medication works reeeaally well plus its all free.

I recommend bio oil. You can buy it from Boots. If you eat healthily, and apply the oil at night, you will notice your spots begin to disappear and it also clears up scars that spots leave. BUT, it takes time to work so be patient.

Isn't the Isotrex and Roaccutane the same thing, or is one a gel and one a tablet?

mate just take roaccutane, only thing that does what is says on the tin (ok box).- honestly all the other stuff sucks and is a waste of time/effort/money

Steam room lol- perhaps temporary improvement yes, but i'm sure people would have cottoned onto this lol. Take roaccutane you can feel it's a powerfull/wonderfull drug when you start taking it; you feel pretty terrible for first week or two.

it depends how bad you have it, and a number of other factors.

for some people, simply eating less chocolate will clear it up 100%. for others, roaccutane is the ONLY thing that effects it in any way.


and o yeah, if its anything beyond occasional, and small amounts of acne, go straight to the doc. no point in wasting time/money on anything you can easily buy.


and finally, isolated examples people tell you are practically worthless too. hence, unless this thread gets 50+ responses, you can't gain any single useful treatment advice from it.

I've been using Oxy. It seems to be doing the job.

I use Benzoyl peroxide 2.5%. I use the brand panoxy gel. Works wonders for me, cleared me up completely very fast and I was really bad. Only problem is it dries your skin out a bit at first, but that soon went.
