I have my school ID picture in exactly one week and I have so much acne (pimples on my cheeks, blackheads and whiteheads around my nose)! I would put makeup on but I feel like if I put makeup on I'm just going to make it worse. How can clear up my face?

A week is pretty quick! See if you can get in with a good derm in your area. Alternatively, you can start with a benzoyl peroxide over the counter wash.

I hope your pics are gorgeous!

Use home remedies it will take time to give result but it won't harm you. Since it is a home made ingredient at least it will moisturize your face.

Hi johnkeller,

Treatment for severe acne scars depends on the types of scars that you have. Have you spoken with your doctor or a dermatologist about what might be the best approach for you? He/She will be best able to suggest a treatment that will most benefit you. Here are some options that may be available to you-- your doctor may also suggest other types of therapies.

Best wishes,
Atti
