    1/ Never, ever touch your face.

    2/ Use 3 facecloths to wash your face, one to soap on, one to soap off with very hot water, one to rinse off with ice cold water, in that order, once a day.

    3/ If you are under 18 take 5,000 IU of vitamin A once a day with a full meal

    4/ If you are over 18 take 5,000 IU of vitamin A twice a day with a full meal.

    Do not get pregnant while taking vitamin A. Do not take any more, like Accutane, it will stop you growing.

    5/ Never, ever. pick, squeeze or pop your spot. Read number 1 again.

    6/ Do this for 90 days.

    7/ Invest in a brand new pillow and 2 new or more pillow cases to �double bag' your pillow. HOT wash every couple of days.


    A bit of advice given to me as a teenager, a bit of science as I am studying allergic reactions and vitamin A is a part of that. A bit of research: I sat in a lecture at the back and watched the acne prone pick at their faces, those with the worse acne touched their faces 32 times in an hour, the clearest complexions didn't touch their faces even once. I have circumstantial evidence that acne is the result of dermatophyte transfer from hands to face...where it does not get washed off and is well fed by hormones, sweat a

    nd oil...just a hypothesis... But it would explain why vitamin A is so effective as vitamin causes skin to remove dermatophytes.

    The secret is never to touch the spots

    Tips on how to treat acne and achieve perfect clear skin in as little as 7 days?

  • Noxzema is really, really old; meaning it's been around forever. If it really worked, more ppl would use it and no one would have acne.

    Go to a dermatologist. Change your diet. That's the only way to clear up your face.

  • Ive tried noxzema many times and it hasnt worked for me. Everyone's skin is different though....and yea, whatever acne product you use on your face, you should also use on your chest and back. it will clear that up too.

  • Hi,

    I am a dermatologist by profession and within a careeer of 10 years I have seen lots of acne problems. According to me Red and white pimples are the worst and painful. Acneprone skin is very sensitive, even if you touch it once the redness will increase with itching. According to me there is no magical way to heal your pimples over night as this is the puffed part of your skin due to the bacteria.

    In simple words try to improve your diet and have lots of water that helps in healingg process. Un-necessary oily food should be avoided to get a healthy spotless skin.

  • I would suggest you try using Jojoba Oil as it is almost identical organically-speaking to sebum, which is the natural oil produced by your skin. As well as being a great natural moisturizer it can also help with acne, Jojoba Oil ᴘᴇɴᴇтʀᴀтes into the skin without clogging pores and is suitable for all skin types it contains vitamin E and antioxidants which are great for fighting aging signs and moisturizing the skin.

    Studies on jojoba oil show that it has the ability to prevent skin from becoming too oily. This is due to the fact that putting jojoba oil on our skin can trick our cells into thinking they have produced enough oil. Remove any surface dirt from your skin, then put just a few drops of jojoba oil into your hand and rub it into your skin when you start to work jojoba oil into the skin, the oil ᴘᴇɴᴇтʀᴀтes into the pores. As jojoba closely resembles

    your skin's own oil, moisturizing with jojoba oil sends the message to your pores to stop overproducing the sebum that causing the oily skin.

  • Might sound weird and something crazy to do. But, toothpaste really works. Don't have to go out and buy a expensive brand use the one you have at your house. How long you leave it on is truly up to you. Some leave it on for a few minutes. Some leave it on till it starts to split. And don't leave it on overnight. I'm not a wild sleeper I sleep on my back so I leave it on overnight since I don't go to bed till like 1 in the morning and have to wake up at 5.

  • first i wash my face, then alcohol for some reason, wait til it dries then us noxzema. it takes about 3 days 20 heay depending on how big it is.

    Source(s): i got it too
