Avoid and eliminate pimples, blackheads, and irritation.

If you use make-up, this method may not work. This tip requires diligent cooperation and an open mind.
I recommend the use of only WATER. When you wash your face, do not use anything at all but water. During your shower, massage your face for more than 3 minutes AS IF you were using soap. If you feel tempted to pop pimples during your shower, do so. But once you stop massaging your face and you walk out of that shower, no more popping!
After you shower, it takes about 3 to 5 minutes before your face dries up. Do not let this happen. Use a drop of VITAMIN E OIL for each cheek, your forehead, your chin, and none for your nose! The rationale behind this is when your face dries up, you have receptors on your skin which detect dryness. When your skin detects dryness, it will make its own oil. This is the oil moisture we do not like. It contributes to acne.
I must add that when you walk out of the shower, don't touch anything with your right hand. Use your left hand for opening doorknobs, wrapping towels, turning off the light switch, etc. We need the right hand as clean as possible to apply the vitamin E oil.
Before you sleep, you will see plenty of aggravated pimples. This is only because of your shower. Heat is a natural inflammatory and will redden irritated areas, which in this case, are your pimples.
You must combine this method with at least eight hours of sleep if your schedule allows. Combine 1/2 glass of water to 1/2 glass of cranberry juice; drink lots of it during meals. Lastly, no oily foods.
As a highly stressed nursing student, I am a 20 year-old male at the prime of my acne years. This is the only method of acne treatment that works for myself. If this does not work you, I don't know what will. Good luck!!!
