I am 17+ and I am recently getting lots of acnes on my face, it makes me looks ugly and I am getting very annoyed too. I am also having back acne. It all started happening about six months ago. I know many of us are suffering from acne and I don't think one has never been so lucky not to have a single pimple on their body. I don't want to take any alopethic medicines, rather I believe more on home remedies. If any of you people know good tips to treat pimples then share with it here with everybody. I and all the peoples reading this post will surely be greatfull to You for this.

Well the most effective for me is water. I drink lots and lots of them. I tried different products from facial wash to soaps, but drinking water is still the best for me. My friend told me to apply toothpaste, leave it for 30mins then wash it. She told me acne's dries with toothpaste, well she applies it everyday, until the acne is gone.

Triy some Proactive that is suppose to be really good. Tooth-paste is good for big pimples too. Dab some on the pimple.

I am forty years old and haven't needed to combat acne in a long time. I feel bad for your situation. As a teenager it is hard to deal with and at your age it can be a struggle to deal with your peers. You probably feel that all eyes are on you. But don't feel alone. I am sure that a lot of kids your age are going through the same thing. Acne happens at a time in your life when you need the most acceptance of all. I might be a bit older than you but believe me I sure do remember being a teen. Sometimes you just have to let that go away by itself. Whatever you do, don't try to irritate them any more than you might have. Pimples are just a fact of life. Maybe a nice facial cleanser that is good for your pores. Best of luck!

Thanks for your comment. Pimples really do irritate and I can't control myself from squeezing them. I know its not a healthy activity but still, I can't control myself.

some people have suggested toothpaste and while that may work,i have to warn you that you could ne left with a big red scar as it can burn the skin, im not saying it will happen but its possible as it happened to me. Someone has suggested water and that will help massively,i used to suffer with major spots and proper acne, if its spots then water will help. If its proper acne then youll need to go to the doctor. I know you said home remedies but Freederm is fantastic,if you can get it where you are.
