What i do may be hard to find for some.. but worth it.

I have oily skin, acne and acne scars. Most of the acne and scars are gone because of this.

1. Wash skin with papaya soap. (you can get it online, or at any Filipino store)
2. Use an astrigent/toner. I use papaya based astrigent. (once again, at a Filipino store) This works as an exfoliant. (cotton ball ofcourse)
3. Murad's Acne Treatment Gel. It's great because it has 2% Salycilic Acid. (Murad.com i think)
4. Use Ultraquin Gel to get rid of the scars and hasten the healing process! (it's Canadian, google ultraquin)

It really worked for me...! The people who reccomended Ultraquin swear by it and it combined with what i do rocks!

[if you can't find the papaya products, soap and toner work fine... papaya just has whitening and acne benefits though.]

Mmm... papaya products. Sounds yummy Cheesy
But seriously. I'm so sick of blackheads. All of a sudden, my nose just decided to become Blackhead City, and nothing seems to do much of anything, and I'm too chicken (and cheap) to try pore strips. So basically I'm stuck with a nasty nose. Gah Sad

Use a good-quality, preferably organic, coconut oil as a moisturizer.  Apply to damp skin.  It only takes a very little bit, is cheaper than almost all commercial moisturizers, absorbs well, feels "light" on the skin and keeps your skin soft and smooth all day.  It also seems to improve my skin quality, reducing lines and breakouts, but YMMV.

I've recently tried jojoba oil as a cleanser.  I think it works great.  Usually I use it only at night though and day time I use a regular cleanser.  It has helped get rid of some peoples and has made it clearer and it's cheap in the long run because all you really need is like 3 drops and it works as a cleanser/moisturizer all in one and once it absorbs it doesn't feel greasy at all.  I put jojoba on first NOT water or that will just repel it and then I rinse with warm water.

I also use an apple cider vinegar mixture as well on my face and it fades marks.  Also occasionally an aspirin mask.

 ???Waxing? It sounds rather painful, but it most likely works.

When it comes to bleaching facial hair, i would recommend getting a professional - i would get seriously freaked out if i tried a home-made bleach on my face for fear of disfigurement and/or lifelong humiliation...
