    Homemade Black Head Remedies

     My son is at the age of needing help with acne and pore cleansing. The price of commercial products is staggering! Some of my own solutions are not working so well for him. I need some new ideas to try for getting rid of black heads.

    My friend always used witch hazel for her girls. I never tried it but maybe someone else has experience with it. Babs

    That is one I have never tried. I have heard that tip before though.

    The other thing that worked for my boys...they would get pimples on their forehead. They would be less if they shampooed more often to keep the hair from gettiing oily. Babs

    Forgive me, I don't know whether you have medical insurance?  If you do, seek professional help!  Wouldn't all medications be covered?  Then............if the problems continue for years, and you have medical documentation, as proof, should scarring occur and needs "cosmetic" attention, you'll have the paperwork to prove that it is "medical"!  Thus, any corrective procedures will be/should be covered.

    Camphphenque is great on acne.  It will dry them up.

    Oil of Olay makes a facial wash cloth so I'm sure there is an equal store brand WalMart product.  I have has to use this before because of my psoriasis.  My solution now is baby wash that I use with baby washcloths. Gentle for the face. 

    Also don't let them forget the back of their necks or lower back where jeans/pant waistbands rub.  My brother always had problems there and now my husband does in the summer months.

    Re: Homemade Black Head Remedies

    My sister just brought me a book called vinegar & oil from the library and I quickly scanned through it and saw that blackheads was mentioned.  So, I searched online and found a few sites.

    eHow.com says daubing on some cider vinegar at night will help.  Here's the link:  eHow article

    Re: Homemade Black Head Remedies

    I had horrible acne on my cheeks when I pregnant and the dr told me to add in a mid-day cleaning.  That helped a lot.  I got those simple wipes and kept the container at work and would just grab one and wipe my face down after lunch.  It did help.  Sometimes when you're in the throws of acne you just need to do extra.  I had bangs as a young teen and getting my hair off my head helped a lot.  I know proactiv is supposed to be really good, but at $20/month can be costly.  This may be something you go 50/50 on to see if it will even help.  Now that I don't have as many problems with acne, I use a generic daily facial scrub that exfoliates and then a WM generic lotion that is similar to Oil of Olay but doesn't smell like my grandma (no offense to anyone who uses that b/c I actually like it; I just don't want to be reminded of my grandma all throughout the day) and the lotion has SPF15 in it which is an added bonus.
