10 Best Ways to Get Rid of Acne Fast ...

I hate waking up in the morning and seeing a new pimple in the mirror. The best way to get rid of acne is to not get it in the first place, but once you have it, here are the best ways I’ve found to get rid of it, fast!

Wash with Warm Water

You don’t need harsh chemical washes to keep your skin clear, or to clear up your acne really fast. The best thing to use is warm water on a clean washcloth.


Avoid Caffeine

Caffeine will irritate your skin, and also flush much-needed water out of our system before it does its work!


Drink Plenty of Water

Healthy skin is hydrated skin. Drink your recommended 64 ounces of water each day to quickly clear up acne, and prevent it from coming back!


Use a Moisturizer with Salicylic Acid

There are several moisturizers on the market that contain salicylic acid (otherwise known as aspirin). This chemical will clear up the acne you have now, and keep it from coming back! My favorite moisturizer with salicylic acid is Clean and Clear Dual-Action Moisturizer. Try it!


Don’t over-dry

Harsh chemicals, like benzoyl peroxide, may over-dry your skin, making it irritated and actually MORE prone to acne! So just wash with warm water and apply an oil-free moisturizer to help cure, and soothe, your skin.


Don’t Stress

Stress is exactly what causes me to break out. When I feel stressed, I do yoga. If I let the stress get to me, then I get the worst break-outs EVER.


Don’t Cover It up!

You may be tempted to use concealer to hide your acne, but that’s not going to get rid of it! Your skin needs to breathe to heal, so stay away from the foundation and concealer until it heals.


Keep Your Hair Pulled Back

The oils from our hair may also irritate our skin, and make it easier for acne to happen. While your skin is healing, keep your hair pulled back off your face.


Keep Hands off Your Face

The dirt and oils from our hands are another way acne can start or take longer to heal. Another no-no — squeezing pimples. This just causes the oil from the ruptured acne to spread, making new blemishes. Ick!


Use an on-the Spot Treatment

There are some great new on-the-spot treatments for acne that work wonderfully! My favorite is Neutrogena On-the-Spot Acne Treatment. You apply it directly onto the individual acne spots themselves, delivering a blast of healing there only. I love using this before bed, because by the time you wake up, the acne is gone!

Once you’ve gotten rid of the little break-out, keep it from coming back! If it does come back, then pull up this list again to get rid of it again, fast! What are your secrets for getting rid of acne? How do you make it heal up fast? Please let me know! Thanks!

hello. hey, the tips are awesome, and i will try to practice it every time i've got acne problem. does anything will affect my face if i mixed up all different products at one time? i'm using Oxy Facial Wash now, and if i want to try the Clean and Clear moisturizer and Neutrogena acne treatment at the same time, is that will be okay to my face?

Sue, I say the same things as you. I guess they have to come out and at one point they will stop. If the skin is very oily you could try visiting a dermatologist like Sheila said. The more oily the skin is the more achne comes out. Try washing your face more often. See to it that your hair is washed more regulary or don't let it hang loose around your face. I know how you feel, this terrible acne gets down everyone. Have you ever tried taking some pills for your face of course by a doctor's prescription?

I always rely on hydrating myself. Besides, drinking water is good for other bodily conditions, too. :)

i hate acne and been fighting it since past 2 years .i hate it the way it makes me ugly.Nuthing works for me.

hi im in my early teens and i have acne on my face, little bit on my chest, and back. it really sucks because i cant wear anything that shows my back, anything that really shows my chest, and i have to wear a lot of coverup powder makeup on my chest and face so no one can see lol. right now i am using step 1 out of i think 3 pure zone:) it really works and i recommend it for all ages! my skin is becoming clear and soft. my back is clearing and so is my chest and face:) i really hope i helped some people out:) lol byee:)

Try toothpaste

Proactiv is AWESOME, you have to be diligent with it, and use a good moisturizer as a follow up!
