Neosporin for acne and zits
Submitted by napoleon
I've found that appyling neosporing to zits really helps clean them up quick. Just add a dab to wherever necessary. I suppose you could use as much as you'd like as you need/like.
I've never had any inflammatory reactions or anything from it. Usually I'll just squeeze a little in my hand and add 2x as much of mousterizer in my hand too, mix them together and apply to my face during the night.
Works good for me. Adding a little peroxide to the mixture makes it even better.
Another tip I find works for some people is to stop washing your face period. This honestly works for me. I usually dont take showers on the weekends and so I never washed my face and I noticed that my face would always clear up on the weekends but would start up as soon as monday came around up. Any type of soap/cleaner makes me break out like crazy. I don't even the water from the shower head touch my face anymore. I just cup a bit of warm water with my hands and splash it on my face. In order to get rid of dead skin I use one of those spongy bath scrubs on my face every friday night before I go to bed. I use really hot water on my face and scrub it really hard to completely clean it up. Comes out really smooth feeling. Afterwards I apply the mousterizer and neosporin mix immediately to keep it from drying out. This method may help or may not. I've heard that not too many people's faces will clear up from not washing, but it was not an authoritative source. Also, I don't have large breakouts or anything, so I'm not sure how good any of this would help those kinda cases.
