Lightbulb Remedies

Anyone have any tips to improve your acne/skin? Just some general easy tips that you use to improve the complexion of your face.

1. Take an ice cube and rub it all over your face before putting on makeup, it works wonderfully for red swollen pimples.

2. And I stay away from beef liver, clams, crabs and other shellfish. These are all iodine-rich foods which has been associated with acne.

3. I drink at least 12 glasses(minimum) of water a day. It really has improved my whole body actually.

OK, now add your own home remedies/tips!!!

* Wash your face at least twice a day.
* don't pour on the medication, putting too much of a topical treatment on one pimple will burn your skin and make it worse.
* take an advil when you feel a big pimple coming on.
* always wash your hands before you touch your face, and if you can avoid it, don't touch your face at all!

Egg white or yolk (depending on your skin type) works wonders for your skin.

* Yes, I've read Erin's thread, the people posted were just abusing this remedy so they deserved having those breakouts.
