If you have a special event or hot date coming up, there is no doubt that you will want to know how to clear acne fast. One trick that will help decrease the size of a pimple on your face is to apply a hot towel to the affected area and press against skin for thirty to sixty seconds. This helps bring down the swelling and opens up the pores. Another great way to clear acne fast is to go to your dermatologist and get a prescription for an oral antibiotic.

About 10 years ago, I picked up some online advice from a fellow acne sufferer, about how he had whipped his problem: a low carbohydrate, low sugar diet. His reasoning was that excessive amounts of carbs and sugar provided the fuel for bacteria-causing acne, and that starving the bacteria would alleviate his acne. And it did. After trying the diet myself for two weeks, I saw noticeable improvements, and great enough that I was encouraged further to stay on the diet. I've now been acne-free ever since; it was almost like a light bulb being turned off. I say acne-free, but a handful of times I would backslide as far as my diet (always during family events when eating everything put in front of you was compulsatory), and my acnee would return 2 to 3 days later. That convinced me that my diet change wasn't just a coincidence. Try it. You have nothing to lose. Except acne.
