Getting rid of acne is extremely difficult. There are three major types of acne whiteheads, blackheads and cystic acne. Blackhead removal can be easily accomplished by extracting acne from the pore. Exfoliating will make this process easier because it brings blackheads to the surface of the skin and loosens the pore. Whiteheads are easily managed by keeping the skin clean and removing the puss. Cystic nodules are very difficult to get rid of because they are deep in the skin and cannot be reached by topical medications. In addition they do not have a head making extractions impossible. Cystic nodules must be reached internally or by cortisone shots.
The fact that the power of vitamins for treating acne is not more well known is very sad to me. Because I know that many people are needlessly suffering from embarrassing acne when they could be using vitamins for their acne and resolving their problems.

1. Play it cool but take action
Acne can profoundly impact self-esteem at any age, especially during the vulnerable teenage years. If your teen tells you that his acne doesn’t bother him, be aware that he may be simply putting on a brave face. I’ve seen this countless times with young acne sufferers in my office.

Blackheads. Those ugly little black dots on your nose that acne products just don’t seem to get rid of. And for worse sufferers, they spread from your nose to your chin and elsewhere. These can be tougher to get rid of than acne too, making them quite the nuisance. You can’t pop them either. You could try squeezing them, but that won’t fully get rid of them AND it could leave ugly scars or marks and damage your skin. At the very least it’ll increase redness.
So what is to be done about these blackheads? First off, stop worrying so much. While blackheads are definitely some nasty blemishes, they’re not very visible unless people are all up in your face. Secondly, use the only working method to get rid of them- the natural and holistic method that I’ll detail later.
