How to Treat Acne/Pimples

Although acne may be incredibly embarrassing, rest assured it is the most common skin condition in the Unites States (American Academy of Dermatology.)

Let’s start by defining what acne is: Acne is the occurrence of inflamed or infected pores in the skin; a condition characterized by the following symptoms: blackheads, whiteheads, papules, pustules (known as pimples), cysts, and nodules.

How to treat Acne:

  • Wash your face, twice daily (or after sweating) with a cleanser and warm water. Massage the cleanser over your face using your fingers to make small circles.
  • Moisturize face in the morning and before bed.
  • Apply CUROXEN to the affected areas.
  • It can take up to 4-8 weeks for acne to clear. Continue to treat the skin after acne clears to prevent future breakouts.
  • DO NOT pop pimples. This can often make the pimple much worse and even cause scarring. If you touch your pimples, make sure your hands are very well cleaned.
  • If acne is persistent and does not respond after 4-8 weeks to the above treatment plan, see a dermatologist.


CUROXEN kills 5X more bacteria than leading products on the market without causing an allergic reaction. Since acne can be caused by bacteria, CUROXEN clears the skin of bacteria and can eliminate acne. CUROXEN contains oxygenated olive oil, so it will not dry out the skin or cause redness like many other products. Facial skin is sensitive, so great care is needed to avoid drying it out.

“In my esthetics practice I specialize in herbal and toxin free facials and most of my clients struggle with acne. So, I was eager to give Curoxen a go! I myself had a blemish near my nose and a hormonal breakout on my cheek (I’m 7 months pregnant). After I cleansed my skin, I applied a small amount of Curoxen to each blemish and went to bed. The next morning each blemish was almost completely gone! Redness was gone! I have since used on 3 clients with acne and one with a cold sore and they text me the next day that their blemishes have healed tremendously with just a small scab (which is the final act in healing process). I’m so pleased and look forward to using Curoxen in my facial studio from now on!”

Tips to prevent an acne breakout:

  • Avoid touching your face. Your fingers contain germs and bacteria that you do not want to end up on your face.
  • Acidic foods can have adverse effects. If you eat a lot of oranges, pineapple, or tomatoes, try not eating acidic foods for a bit and see if you see a change.
  • Do not use a washcloth or sponge to wash your face, because it can irritate the skin.
  • Regularly clean make up brushes.
  • Clean items that regularly touch your face, such as glasses or your phone. You can use a wipe to quickly clean your phones cover and screen.
  • Only eat hormone free eggs, milk, and meat. The added hormones in these items today can aggravate hormonal acne.
  • Throw out old or expired make up or face care products.
  • If your hair is prone to getting oily be sure to clean hair daily, to prevent the oils from getting on your face.
  • Clean pillows and towels often. Try using scent-free detergents. Many skin types get aggravated by fragrances.
  • If you wear makeup try using a mineral powder that won’t clog your pores.
  • Diet can have a significant effect on overall skin health. Try limiting your intake of sugars, saturated fats, vegetable oils, or processed foods.
