Re: Tips? Ideas?
Nov 19, 2005
I think some of those tips are good. The hot compress on your face to open the pores is a good idea (I mean, that's what they do in facials after all!) - but remember to use a cold compress after you wash your face to close the pores back up. I personally do the hot/cold compress thing and find that it does help me. My derm said to make sure it's not too hot - don't want to scald your face and make it overly dry.

I'm not sure that picking at the spots in the shower is a very good idea though. Doing that will risk bacteria and other gunk getting into the areas - which could make them worse.

While the tips you've got will probably help, I don't think it will actually "cure" acne ... maybe just help control it a bit better. If it's working for you, I'd keep doing it to keep things under control, but also see a dermatologist to find out what's causing it and to help you cure it. :)
