Questions About Pimples Answered

Joseph asks…How do I get rid of pimples from my chest and back?

I seriously hate it, having pimples and unknown scars on my back and a few on my chest, I hate to see them everytime I look at myself in the mirror! How can I get rid of them? What do you use?

Admin answers:  Scrub your back/chest gently with niacinamide pads. Niacinamide face cleansing pads are an effective and simple way to keep acne away. Just place a pad on the pimple and watch it fade away. Lavender Oil helps prevent skin drying. Niacinamide also helps diminish skin-hyperpigmentation (acne scars). Niacinamide pads are also known as Vitamin B3 pads or Nicotinamide pads. Works on body acne too.

Give them a try and you will be pleasantly surprised.

Lizzie asks…What are some ways to get rid of scars from pimples?

I pick my pimples sometimes and I want to know want can I do for my face to get rid of the scars?

Admin answers:

Mix some lemon juice and rose water in a small bowl and apply it on your pimples, ONLY YOUR PIMPLES, overnight. It will burn a little. When you wake up in the morning, your pimples will reduce.

Photo therapy or blue-light therapy is an increasingly common form of treating facial or body acne. It uses light that interact with peripheries in skin bacteria to reduce bacteria production and rectify acne. Many dermatologists use this form of treatment in a clinic setting, but it can be costly and time consuming. Health Canada recently approved a new product that has the same therapeutic effect, but it can be administered by the individual.

William asks…Why I’m having pimples and what’s the fastest, easiest and cheapest way to remove it?

I’m getting rid of this pimples, I’m 16 yrs. old, I’d never experience having pimples yet, until one day I wake up having one pimple then a couple of days past, it increases the amount, and I don’t want this thing anymore on my face, it’s a destructive of beauty, please help me! Thanks!

Admin answers:  Boil a pot of water, turn off the heat and put your face over it (so that the steam rises onto your face…don’t burn yourself though:)). This opens up your pores so that any “dirt” have easy access to come out. Then wash your face with a good exfoliating facial cleanser…I like the St. Ives Apricot Scrub Blemish control…it’s got salicylic acid which is good for pimples. Wash your face with hot to warm water. Then, now that all your pores are open, including your pimple, dab NON FLUORIDE mint toothpaste onto the pimple (this draws out impurities…it feels really nice though:)).Then dab cold water all over your face to close the newly clean pores…don’t wipe off the toothpaste.:) Hope this helps! I’m 17…and I get the occasionally pimple…this always works within 2 days. DO NOT “pop” it until the top of it is white and hard…you might get a scar.

Paul asks…How to prevent and get rid of pimples?

I am 17. I never had any pimples until now i am starting to break out. I have no idea why. Maybe it’s because I’m drinking coffee now? Can anybody help me prevent these?

Admin answers:

Pimples are totally normal and nothing to worry about. They won’t stick around forever!

Don’t pick or scratch at them. Only pop the ones that are ready. (Red with white tips)

  1. Choose a face wash.

If you are dealing with blackheads, get a blackhead exfoliating scrub.  Neutrogena, Clean & Clear, and Cetaphil can all be found at your local drugstore.

  1. Wash your face 2 times daily.
  2. If this doesn’t help, consult a dermatologist.

Mary asks…What’s the best way of getting rid of pimples and freckles?

I’ve got a couple of pimples and freckles and I don’t know how to get rid of them.

Admin answers:  Freckles are there for life, which is ok, they are attractive. For pimples you are not supposed to pop them. If you hold a damp warm cloth over them it will help them tone down. Also, if you are using those oxy pads, they will actually GIVE you pimples; because they are really cleaning your face so all those impurities will become pimples, then eventually will start going away and stay away until you use them for a long period of time over the course of a couple weeks

Maria asks…What do I do to get rid of the pimples on my face?

I’m 16. And I’ve got some pimples on my face, which tends to keep coming and going. Is there a way to control them or to eradicate them completely from my face?

Admin answers:  I can’t remember how fast I got rid of my acne with this routine…but I do know it has kept it away for a long time!!!!! I don’t have acne anymore!!!!! Hope it helps!!!!!

My skincare routine:

Cleanser: Basis….this is just a bar of soap that matches your pH level of your skin….so it won’t dry out your face (if you don’t use moisturizer though it will) This cleanser seems simple and it is not meant to fight acne…but in a sense it does…it really cleans your face well without drying out your face…i didn’t believe my mom when she recommended it…but man does it work wonders.

Toner: Neutrogena Pore Refining Toner…really any toner you prefer is ok…but this is the one I use. Start from the top of your face and go towards the temples…also with cheeks…go towards the temples…then on chin go in circular motions only (not making it up…this is what you are supposed to do whenever applying anything to your face) This will take off the dead skin and make your pores smaller (helps with the dirt getting in) It also leaves face really smooth and nice looking!!!!

Moisturizer: Sheer Cover Oil Free Moisturizer…again any moisturizer will be good…just as long as it is oil free, made for the face, and does not have any acne fighting agents in it. Dot it all over face then apply just like I said with the toner. Moisturizing can really help fighting the acne. Did you know that dry skin is actually a cause for acne and pimples? The dry skin will actually clog your pores and therefore cause a breakout. Don’t listen to people saying you just need to dry your face out…it’s a lie.

Facial scrub: Oatmeal and Sugar…seriously…this is the BEST scrub I have ever had….just take oatmeal and grind it into a powder and the add Sugar( more Sugar if you want more of a scrub…less if you just want something soothing) then add a little water and make like a paste( not too thick and not too thin) Rub on your face for like 3 minutes then rinse with warm water…put moisturizer on right afterward and your face will feel so refreshed and soft! Do it about once a week. Don’t rub too hard or you will damage face. The oatmeal is for soothing for face of redness and dry skin. The sugar is for exfoliation.

Steam your face for about 5 to 10 minutes a week. Moisturize right after you steam. This will open your pores and get all the dirt and grime out. It also helps with dryness. Don’t steam and use the scrub on the same day. It is best to use it on separate days. Don’t ask me why…just figured it out.

I suffer a little more from dry skin…but yet it can get oily at times…but with this routine has been great….and now I don’t have a single blemish or patch of dry skin!!!!! It is amazing! Do this routine (excluding the scrub and steam) twice a day. Your skin will clear up…but in about a week or two your face will break out and that is a good sigh. This is because all of the dirt is getting out of your skin. Just keep with it and it will pay off in the long run…i have great skin right now (used to have horrible skin…i could have seriously been on one of those acne commercials it was so bad)…but now i have stuck with this routine and my skin is now soft and smooth!


  • Vitamin E (taking it and also rubbing on face) is really good for your skin
  • Olive oil is also good rubbing on face…warmed…rinsed with warm water
  • Taking fish oil is also good
  • Try not to touch your face….it pushes the dirt into your face
