I recently made a post on this, check it out.But you can use a lemon juice and baking soda paste as a scrub. That will help clear up the skin and diminish scars. But don’t scrub too hard!

Back Acne

 Acne breakouts on back, chest, shoulders and upper arms are usually much more difficult to treat than acne on your face.

Like facial acne, the problem of Back Acne is also caused by overactive oil glands leading to clogged skin pores due accumulation of excess oil and dead skin cells.

Such body acne can become worse due to friction and pressure on skin because of wearing tight fitting clothes, athletic pads, backpacks etc.

Moreover, sweating and skin irritation due to vigorous rubbing can aggravate them. Plus, they can become red and filled with pus in case the lesions get infected.

Symptoms may also include itching and pain in case of acne cysts. Thus, it is imperative to follow proper skin care regime to avoid acne from worsening.

When severely inflamed, they tend to leave behind acne scars on back too. Although this problem is prevalent in both the genders, it is more common in males as compared to females.


 When dealing with Back Acne, avoid wearing tight fitting clothes. Plus, opt for clothes prepared from light, breathable fabrics such as cotton.

As far as possible, keep your back clean and dry. In case you need to apply a moisturizer, use a light, water-based moisturizer.

Besides, carefully using loofah, brush or any scrub to exfoliate the skin on your back regularly (without rubbing vigorously) is a highly beneficial tip on how to get rid of Back Acne.

Applying aloe vera juice is useful in healing Back Acne.

Using benzoyl peroxide (2.5-5%) or salicyclic acid is a popular and affordable way to get rid of Back Acne. Benzoyl peroxide helps reduce Back Acne with deep, closed comedones by fighting off bacteria. As benzoyl peroxide cream or gel tends to cause dryness, use a moisturizer with alpha hydroxyl acid afterwards. Salicyclic acid is more suitable for sensitive skin type and helps to break down skin cells faster to replace them with younger cells

Anonymous asked: How do I get rid of black heads In my nose QUICKLY! I've tried the cinnamon remedy, the toothpaste remedy and the egg white one too, and more! I tried out so many black head masks/ products, I tried pro active and other acne products, I tried that black goop and bioré strips, AND NOTHING IS WORKING! I recently started changing my pillow case every night so it's cleaner! What do I do?? I also tried squeezing them out it sorta worked but I don't want to make it worst ! So what can I do?

Blackheads are stubborn little buggers. What I suggest is steaming your face before trying any remedies to remove them, and then try pore strips, or try scrubbing them with a toothbrush and a paste of bicarb, and lemon juice.

Anonymous asked: Can you help me? I just went outside for 2 hours in a bikini and laid in the sun (its 80 degrees here). A few minutes in, my pelvic area felt really hot and uncomfortable. It eventually went away. Now I'm inside, my legs and stomach are red but don't hurt, but the skin that hurt before is blotchy red and white (but it doesn't hurt). Is something wrong with me? For reference, I am a very pale, freckled person with Irish skin that burns really easy (red skin turns to light tan in a few days).

Applying some aloe should help soothe any redness. Try taking aloe gel and freezing it, and then rubbing on the red skin

For those of you looking for a fantastic moisturizer, I highly recommend Physiogel AI cream… I have made a post on this cream before, but I felt the need to reiterate just how amazing this stuff is. It helps protect skin from free radicals,regenerates skin’s protective barrier, helps relieve redness in dry, sensitive skin and is also non-comedogenic.
This is the best moisturizer I have ever used… so far ;)
Get it here on amazon: http://amzn.to/1o7CGJC

CRaZy for Coconut oil!

Coconut oil is AMAZING!

1.It can be used on the skin as a basic lotion ,because Coconut oil is a great skin softener and helps you do away with dry and hard skin conditions. For example:

Rub into elbows daily to help alleviate dry, flaky elbows, or use it on hardened and cracked feet. The cracks in your feet will not vanish, but your feet will become softer within days if you apply coconut oil to the affected area.

2.Use it as a gentle, all natural eye-makeup remover
3.To lighten age spots when rubbed directly on the skin
4.To minimize and help prevent any stretch marks
5.As an intensive nighttime facial moisturizer ( not ideal if you are very     prone to acne)

6.Rubbed on lips as a fast acting, natural lip moisturizer. Perfect for chapped lips!

7.As a naturally antibacterial skin cream

8.As an exfoliant, including coconut oil as an agent with other exfoliating or grainy materials like salts and sugars can vastly improve the effects. You will successfully scrape off excess dead skin and clean out whatever substances have blocked the pores without leaving the skin feeling irritated. The natural soothing nature of the oil combines with the grainy, exfoliating material perfectly, and leaves your skin with an even color, closed pores, and a soft texture.

These are just a few of the amazing benefits of Coconut oil!

Anonymous asked: is it possible to get a pimple in your mouth? like on your gums? because I have a white bump in my mouth and I don't know what it is but it hurts and I don't want to tell my mom because I hate the dermatologist and she would make me go.

I think it would be best to go see a doctor :)

Anonymous asked: hi do you know how to get rid of ashy knees? I have a darker skin tone so I think that makes it worse but I have tried naturally lightening, lightening creams, all different types of lotion and nothing works! any suggestions?

I found this at http://diybeautytutorials.blogspot.com/2011/08/diy-8-ways-to-get-rid-of-black.html…. I hope it helps =)¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†

Knees and Elbows become dark because of dead skin cells. To get rid of these dead skin cells, you need ingredients that exfoliate and/or bleach dark skin Naturally.
After trying out these recipes, It is very important to¬†MOISTURISE.¬†Any moisturiser will work but I recommend¬†cocoa butter or rub some olive oil on knees/elbows for better results. If you don’t moisturise them then they will become darker.

1) You Need:
Baking Soda
Milk

Directions:
Mix enough milk to make baking soda a little damp. Apply the paste on knees or elbows and scrub it in circular motions. Repeat this until you notice, your knees have became lighter and when you are happy with it. I used to skip a day before doing it again.

2) You Need:
1 tsp Turmeric
1 tsp Sugar
1 tsp Olive Oil

If you don’t have turmeric, you may use baking soda.¬†Mix them well together and Apply + Rub in Circular motions.

3) You Need:
Lemon
Gram Flour

Add enough lemon juice to make gram flour damp. Lemon is a Natural bleach and will reduce the darkness. Apply + Rub in Circular motions.

4) You Need: (I tried this one and it worked for me pretty well)
Olive Oil

Just rub the olive oil on knees. This oil has natural bleaching properties and will also make your skin glow. It is the cheapest way.

5) You Need:
Anything that exfoliates your body (loofah, exfoliating brush etc…)

Scrub your knees with loofah or whatever you have, when you are having a shower and scrub with them in circular motions.

6) You Need:
Really amazing moisturiser or cocoa butter or Shea butter

Dark knees/elbows are also caused by dry skin, so you need A LOT of moisturisers if you notice your knees/elbows are flaky.  {P.S Shea butter is the BEST moisturiser I have ever tried.}

7) You Need:
Sunscreen Lotion

Knees/elbows are most exposed in sun during summer. No doubt they will become dark if exposed without sunscreen lotion applied. You can use sunscreen lotion as a moisturiser and to lighten dark knees/elbows after shower. 


8) You Need:
Aloe Vera Gel

Aloe Vera gel reduces dark scars/sun damage caused by over-exposure of knees/elbows. You can buy pure aloe Vera gel from any drug stores/pharmacies/health stores.

One of the tricks I used:
Take two strips of cloth that are wide enough to cover your knees/elbows and some olive oil. Apply olive oil on knees/elbows and massage it for 2 mins. Tie 2 strips of cloths around knees to keep the moisture in and leave them over night. In the morning, scrub your knees/elbows with loofah and wash off the oil in the shower. Moisturise your knees/elbows after shower and Repeat until you see results.

Anonymous asked: Was wondering if you have (or know anyone who has) used the Yes To or the Simple skin care brand? Maybe you could review them? :)

I haven’t tried the Yes To brand, but I have tried Simple, and I love it. I’ve been very busy at university and with work at the moment, so i’ve been neglecting my page a bit. As soon as I have a free moment I will do a review =)
