I know of a lot of people, including myself that continue to have to deal with acne even in their twenties, thirties and older. Everyone with acne, zits or pimples is looking for pimple remedies to help clear up their skin. In this article I'll be outlining the top 3 tips I know of to help clear up skin. These are things that I actually do on a daily basis to prevent new breakouts from forming.

Benzoyl Peroxide Acne Treatment

Benzoyl peroxide can be very effective against acne. Salicylic acid is another great acne fighter but usually people will respond to one over the other and my skin seems to like a benzoyl peroxide acne treatment. What I do is cleanse my skin completely, use a toner and then apply the benzoyl peroxide gel. I find the gel to go a lot further than the cream. You don't have to use very much.

This is an important step for those who have acne prone skin and also if your skin is oily. Dirt and oil can get trapped in the pores and then cause breakouts. One of the greatest pimple remedies is exfoliating the skin regularly. Those with oily skin types will probably benefit by exfoliating the skin approximately every other day. What I generally do is hop in the shower after my cardio workouts, which I do about every other day, and then when I'm almost done I'll put an exfoliating scrub on my face. The time in the shower and the heat from the water will have opened up my pores allowing them to be scrubbed clean.


Moisturizing is important for all skin types - even oily skin. If you do have oily skin, you might find a gel type moisturizer to make your skin less oily. Moisturize after every time you cleanse your face.

These are the pimple remedies that I have found to help keep my skin at its clearest. My skin type is acne prone and combination/oily. I also use Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser and a clarifying lotion and gel moisturizer from Clinique.

Some people also swear by attacking acne by dabbing a bit of toothpaste on pimples. I've heard this only works if you buy a toothpaste that is white and pasty like. I usually purchase toothpaste in gel forms and have heard they don't work the same so I haven't personally tried the toothpaste trick.
