start a morning and night routine

srub your face with apricot scrub 3 or 4 times a week ( you can use St.ives apricot scrub for black head & blemishes)

apply NEUTROGENA CLEAR SKIN FORMULA morning and night. use a sun block after applying it in the morning.

try to steam your face once a week for 15 mins,then apply fresh tomatoe juice on your face leave for 20 to 30 mins before washing off.

Stop touching your face( makes it worse) and wash and moisturize day and night. Do not exfoliate now too as it may bruise your acne and cause spots on your face after healing.

I use Vichy Normaderm products for my face only. They actually have a makeup line for acne prone skin too.

Be mindful of all the things that touch your face: hands, cell phone (When's the last time you cleaned it), hair, hair products, harsh soaps, chemicals from creams and lotions, etc

Excessive sunlight and sweat can sometimes irritate bumps and cause further spreading

Also drink plenty of water to flush your system-2.5 liters per day (start with small goals if it seems like a lot)

Face scrubs really shouldn't be used everyday, maybe once or twice per week. Everyday regular face wash and light oil-free SPF moisturizer should do the trick. You must keep your face moisturized or you body will do it for you an produce excessive oil. Try to cut down on make-up which clogs pores. Use an astringent at night for a cleaner face.

Try raw black soap, not the dudu osun type, but the real raw stuff. Wash your face with it in the morning and night. You should exfoliate at least twice a week also with a face scrub. If you have oily skin, moisturize with a water-based moisturizer, not an oil-based one. If you have dry skin, you can try an oil-based one. Just use the right one based on your skin type. Also wash you pillow cases and set aside a separate towel just for your face. Drink lots of water too! And cut out jun food from your diet! Best of luck!

Do you normally have pimples or did they pop out all of a sudden? if they are not normally occuring then I think your body is looking for a way to detoxify.

you can try the following:

1.stop drinking cokes fanta and sprite and all soft drinks and supermarket fruit juices
2. stop eating groundnut and extremely oil foods and fried stuff.
3. Quit mr Bigs and such like burgers.
4. Go on a one week 6, 12 or 18 hrs fasting (depending on the one you can do) and during the period drink lots and lots of water
5. take walks daily or if you can jog for 15 minutes every morning.
6. Take fruits (very important)

Try the above listed for a week and see the improvements.

Hi Mummy3

I am an internationally trained esthetician, with special focus on the Nigerian Skin. I suggest you be very careful on using just about anything on your face right now, because if your situation is what i think it is, your skin's natural barrier is quite compromised now, and applying any foreign substance that does not suit your skin type could worsen issues.

You see, acne (or pimples, as it is commonly known) is caused by an endless list of factors, but four major factors stand out;

1. Bacteria - Which is responsible for the inflammation
2. Hyper-Keratinization (in lay terms, excessive shedding of dead cells
3. Excess oil - Which clogs the pores + the dead cells to form a nice anaerobic environment for the bacteria to thrive
4. Hormones - Which stimulates the over production of the sebaceous glands responsible for sebum (oil) production. This is also largely related to stress levels, as an overstressed individual may begin to produce more hormones responsible for the sebaceous production.

Most treatment programs and topical products, either attack one or all of these mechanisms to prevent the onslaught of acne on the individual.

Another point worthy of note is that there are also different grades of acne, and subsequently each grade require specific treatment. For more information on the different grades and types of acne, you can visit my blog page.

Skin type and age is also very important in the treatment of acne as Most acne products, are developed for juvenile acne and contain high concentrations of benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid, azelaic acid and other agents that can be excessively drying and potentially irritating to adult skin. Adult skin may not tolerate persistent use of these acne treatment agents and skin sensitivity may become problematic. Also, Adult onset acne (acne that begins in the adult years) usually involves normal or combination skin or even dry and/or sensitive skin, rather than the oily skin that is typical of juvenile acne.


As such to help you further, I would love to ask you a few questions.

1. You say, you suddenly had them 2 months ago. Do you think something could have triggered them? How can you rate your current stress levels? High, Moderately high or low?
2. What kind of Pimples are they? Are they the kind that are whitish on the surface or, just raised and painful? Are they deep seated under the surface of your skin and cause you serious pain? (Better still you can send a picture to my mail box -opeyemi.omezie@gmail.com)
3. What type of skin do you think you have? Oily, Combination or dry?
4. What is your age bracket?
5. What is your current skin regimen?

Please note that this long list of questions would make me understand to an extent, the current situation of your skin, and what to prescribe to you.

Please reply as soon as you can.

Stay Blessed!

i dont like cosmetic products.

Be careful when u use natural things like yoghurt, custard, lemon et al. .cos they av no dose and can lead to what is known as 'housewife's eczema'

I recommend a dermatologic product which is clindamycin. It however has different trade names. The name in Nigeria am not sure of. It could be clindacin or dalacin. Any pharmacist should understand the word, clindamycin. So, u can check on a pharmacist.

You can also use ben oxide. donno its trade name either. U should use both together if u can afford to.

Use a cleanser before application of the above. 'clean and clear' is good and so is eskinol.

Oily and sensitive skin are prone to having pimples if proper care is not taken. I had stopped washing my face with sponge (be it soft or medium sponge), i use my bare palm ever since; so i was advised and it worked. Avoid excessive oil intake (could be from fried foods, groundnut, etc.) Try using more of an exfoliating bath soaps (e.g. Dove Exfoliating Bar Soap, Rhome Transparent Soap, etc) rather than antiseptics. Drink a lot of water daily to detoxify your body system - you don't have to be thirsty first and ensure a clean face (esp from dust, naira notes, and other less noticed dirty items). Good luck!

funny as it may sound, try Cod liver oil and vitamin B complex supplements, after a few weeks you will be surprised
