I’m going to try the honey remedy. After I try that for the half an hour thing I’m going to take my shower and before bed use the ice and toothpaste trick (classic).Hopefully after trying this for three weeks it will solve all my problems. If the toothpaste trick does not work I will switch to the ice and lemon remedy before bed. I can’t wait to try this because I’ve had enough acne problems in my life.

Keep in mind that even if some products market themselves toward severe acne breakouts, all the kits we looked at are definitely designed for mild to moderate acne. Not sure where you fit on that scale? You’re not alone! When you’re in the middle of a breakout, all acne seems severe, so it can be difficult to self-diagnose your symptoms. We talked to dermatologists and cosmetic chemists to better understand the differences between various types of acne, and have compiled an acne guide below.
Isotretinoin is a standard prescription that you can get from your doctor. You may have heard of the brand names Absorica®, Accutane®, Amnesteem®, Claravis®, Myorisan®, Sotret® and Zenatane™.
