If your acne is more severe, than you may have to follow my 12-step program, since acne is an expression of your whole body system and is a reflection of what is going on inside your mind, cell structure and internal organs.
Acne is an excessive toxic condition within your body, which the internal elimination organs are unable to eliminate. So your toxins are moved into your blood and excreted through your skin. It is an automatic survival mechanism your body initiates in an effort to protect the insides of your body ? cells, liquid, blood, organs, and tissues.
There are 12 areas that you need to look at,
* Keep your face clean

* Relive your constipation and the tree day liquid fast
* Making changes to your diet
* Get plenty of sun, air, and water
* Vitamins you need to be taking
* Minerals you should be taking
* Special supplements to take
* Herbal mixture to use or drink
* Special detoxifying drinks or supplements to take
* Brushing your skin
* Change your attitude
Step 1: Keeping your face clean
If you use face cosmetics, you need to stop. Some cosmetics irritate the skin and can cause acne by plugging up your pores on your face. The cosmetics chemicals that can cause you the most skin and pore irritation and inflammation are:
Look at the label of the cosmetics you use. You will find that many cosmetics, soaps, and sunscreens contain these chemicals.
Find a water base make up, not an oil base. Find one that does not irritate your face and use it sparingly
When you wash your face don't use any commercial soaps since they are filled with chemicals that will irritate and worsen your acne condition. And don't excessive wash your face as this will dry your skin of the natural protective oil. Also, don't keep touching your face since you spread or add bacteria to it.
To wash your face use only,
* Castile hand or liquid soap
* Pure glycerin hand soap
You can pat your face with a clean hot face towel to bring circulation to your face and to help open and move the toxic material, in the pimple, to the surface. Do not scrub hard to burst a pimple but just scrub lightly to burst a pimple when it is ready to open.
Use the hot towel application only 2-3 times per week.
When a pimple is open do not continue to rub or scrub it. In fact do not pick or scratch an open pimple since this could create other sores or leave scars that are difficult to remove. Just washing your face with clean soap will keep your face free of toxic matter.
Keep in mind,
Whatever you put on your skin will move into your skin and into your bloodstream.
Most commercial creams, lotions, and soaps are filled with all kinds of chemicals that are toxic to your body. By using them you are making your liver work harder.
During the day or at night avoid resting your cheeks or chin on your hand(s) or arm(s). This can irritate your face and cause acne to breakout. When you sleep, try to sleep on your back and not with your face or side of the face into your pillow.
There you have it. Step 1, shows you how to keep your face clean to avoid getting acne or to help relieve acne.

Save Money On Acne Cleansers
My first education on how to buy acne skin care products came from Johnson & Johnson and Noxema. They had their models wash their clear complexions with the perfect acne cleanser and then, once the suds vanished, the models were dancing around so happy not having to worry about zits.Alas, benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid and most other acne washes do not wash away zits.One trap to fall into with cleansers is over cleansing, which can aggravate acne. The next trap, which is common, is to expect too much from one product.For example, benzoyl peroxide works by destroying excess acne provoking bacteria. Salicylic acid exfoliates the skin and clears the pores, which reduces the chances for waste buildup i...(related: Acne)
