Pimple is everyone's problem. I, too, get to have pimples every now and then triggered by allergies from food or from dirt and dusts and make up. Proactiv used to work for me but after the first use (2 months' use)...when I purchased again, twas not as effective anymore. I have also tried Panoxil but it only makes my skin dry and although it shrinks the lump, it leaves dark spots. Now, I have tried another treatment called SOS. It's helping a lot and it even repairs the old scars. Just, it doesn't help when pimples are caused by allergies. There's this product I overheard to be a very good acne fighting treatment, Obagi. Am not sure if it's really good but it's scary to just try since from the readings I've had, it's very strong so a dermatologist's assistance may be necessary. Especially that my skin is very sensitive. Another product I've heard to be popular among Hollywood celebrities is Mario Badescu. From the reviews, it truly eliminates zit overnight. But, when I checked the price, it's some 50-60USD per small bottle. I mean, of course, it's worth it and I'd really try it but I need to make sure I purchase the authentic one. Nowadays, there are lotsa fakes being sold everywhere. Now is your turn to share what treatment worked for you so far. It can be home remedy that really works. Maybe I can try it too.

Oh speaking of that problem, yeah i wasn't lucky enough to not experience having a pimple. But what I can say about the best product I have used was formulated by my Dermatologist back home. I swear, it really made my skin pimple free. But the worst part was when my stock got over and I am in no way going to get it because I am now in a foreign country, that's how my nightmare starts. It has been many months i struggled and trying different things or solution to end up my problem. Till I had tried Clearasil Rapid Action Pimple cream that made me stop my worries. Although i also use tea tree facial wash to keep my skin free from oil and dust. I only wash twice daily so that the natural oil of our skin will be there. It is also good if you would try some facial mask like Tulsi, it is also a good cleaner for our skin.

Hi there actually i am glad that i dont have acne or pimples. Sometimes i do had a pimple but its only one or two it never a problem to me. So i can't tell you product that will helps your problem. Maybe you just wash your face more often and sleep early. Because if you sleep late always theres a tendency to increase more your pimples. Avoid eating oily foods because this also result to have pimples. Hope this helps you, thanks for open up this discussion =) Goodluck to you.

I think drinking adequate water and proper sleeping can help in getting rid of pimples as there is certain precaution we should take but most important think what i experienced we should have good sleep during night and drinking at least 8 glass of water a day
