Re: my acne is bad and cant find a homemade solution uhhh !!!!

One of the best things I've used lately is Calamine Lotion, used for treating poison ivy. (not caladryl thats the creamer stuff, but may be ok also) The calamine is more watery. It has zinc oxide, which I have seen in some over the counter acne stuff. I use it on spots at night time. I have sometimes put a thin coat all over face and go to bed. It seems to suck up oil and dry up zits really well. I also use an olive oil based bar soap. Doesn't have all the chemicals that some of the liquid type cleansers have.
