This is a remedy for pimples I read from a "glamour" magazine at least 40 years ago [am 57 now]. The article contained conversations with the top models at that time and their remedies for clear skin. Two methods of clearing up pimples have stuck with me all these years, and I would like to pass them along to you. They are positively. absolutely foolproof, or 40 years later I still would not be using them and passing along this tip to my friends. Two simple ingredients that I am sure you already have in your cupboards - corn starch or toothpaste [whichever one you prefer...personally I strictly have used the corn starch].

Wash face well and dry before bedtime. Dot the pimple with alcohol followed by a heavy dot of dry corn starch on the pimple. If you find some has flaked off before bed, add another heavy dot. If you are at home and don't intend to leave the house, keep dotting the pimple the corn starch. But, I guarantee your problem will have disapeared overnight, if not entirely, at least it will be hardly noticeable. The same method is used with toothpaste, but I rarely used that technique, so don't hold me accountable for the results. Good Luck with this cheap homemade remedy that 40 years later has still proven effective and foolproof for me! LuannD

I myself have used a facial scrub all of my life and I am 68 years old and never had a problem with blackheads, whiteheads or any other kind of breakout. It seems to scrape off the old skin and it has always kept my face clear and now I don't seem to have wrinkles so that has been a life saver to me. I use apricot scrub mixed with a small amount of water and do a round motion on your face. Just be easy with it and good luck with school! Nikki

You have to buy a comedone extractor at the drugstore. It's near make-up. You use the extractor to remove them then go over the area after with isopropyl alcohol.

You'll be red for a while, then exfoliate your skin with a scrub once every 3 days to prevent their return. They are just pimples. : )

Can someone please tell me what "Duac" is? It's listed on Thriftyfun as a cure for whiteheads. Here's what the person on Thriftyfun wrote-

Whitehead Remedy?
"Just get Duac once daily cream. It's working wonders for me. I had loads of little ones on my cheeks, chin, and forehead and most of my spots have gone. I have only been using it for a week and I am pleased with my results so far. (11/02/2007)

The person who posted this didn't leave a name, so I can't email them.

Does anyone know the answer?
Thanks so much!

It's best to see a dermatologist and ask them if they are indeed whiteheads and what to do to clean them up and keep them from reoccurring.
