I have been using calamine from a very long time.My skin is so used to calamine lotion now,i never skip applying calamine on my face daily.So far i have tried two brands of calamine and i love the second one.First one which i used and i am sure every girl must have is Lacto Calamine which is quite nice and is a must have for oily skinned beauties!! But the Calamine lotion or Calak lotion has proved to be my HG Calamine lotion.Calak lotion was introduced to me by a friend and i can't thank her enough for this.It not only helps to clear acne/pimples from my skin in just 2 days but also fades away acne spots quite effectively though it takes time to fade spots but hey all i care is that it does fade spots and that makes me a happy soul!! :))))
I also apply it under my makeup and it hydrate and moisturise my oily skin quite well and i don't feel the need to apply moisturiser.Before going to bed i use calak lotion on my acne/ spots and leave it overnight to see the magic of Calamine,zits are reduced in size and there's no redness.I find calak lotion more effective and my skin responds beautifully to Calak lotion.I never had any allergic reaction,skin irritation or side effect by using calak lotion.

I love Calak lotion and can't do without it, bottles of calak lotion are stocked in my cupboard.It is an important part of my daily skin regime and i would continue using it for years and years to come.

  5. How is it effective at treating blackheads? How would you use the calamine lotion?? As a mask or overnight (I have loads of blackheads on forehead and chin.)
    Also how do you use it under your make-up??? Is it not pink?

    1. Hi Veroniquexo calamine contains zinc oxide which is great for treating acne and blackheads too,what it does is it dries out your blackheads further making them easier to be popped out using blackhead remover tool or just by scrubbing your face.Just apply calamine lotion as patches on affected areas overnight,it would take some time to show effect.Mix some calamine lotion with your moisturizer and apply it under your makeup,this will not make your complexion pink.

  6. Hi,

    I use lacto calamine lotion and found it very useful for acne marks. But it makes my skin dry. My skin is normal type. Please guide me, what can I do? I don't want to stop using this.

    Also please tell me, is it sufficient to apply calamine alone, without sunscreen lotion, as it itself has sunsreen ability?

    1. Hi Resmi you can try lacto calamine hydration meant for dry skin,if still your skin feels dry then apply some moisturizer before applying calamine let it dry for 5 mins and then apply calamine,also if you have scars on your face it is important and essential to apply a sunscreen as sun may worsen them gradually.So do apply sunscreen regularly before stepping out in sun.

  8. Hi i have been using calamine lotion for two months now. In the first month i notived a huge difference and alot of friends commented on how clear my skin looked. But this month the scars and pimples seem to be reappearing.

    1. Hi Anonymous I guess the reason is something internal,Because calamine only heals the external wounds but if you say that your pimples are appearing again than may be the problem lies within and its time to visit a dermatologist.

      Hope that helps!!

    1. Yes calamine is a very soothing lotion when it comes to eczema and rashes, however your baby is too young to use calamine, so not sure if it is meant for babies also.You may consult a doctor.

  10. calamine is the first thing I use for anything on my skin. Use as soon as you feel a pimple comming on. Also got rid of an "brown spot/age spot" on my forhead.And it costs next to nothing.

  11. This was rally fantastic, I never knew calamine lotion did all this. I tried it out of curiosity one night on my pimples (because I know it dries out bug bites so I figured i'd give it a try). aynwho, I was wondering if any type / brand of calamine will work just a effective as the lacto or calak brand? Also, I have very oily, yet dry skin, I breakout easy and I have large pores, and any time I use a moisturizer I break out....would this help me? and can it be mixed with any moisturizer for any time use?

    1. Yes you can try any brand of calamine it would offer same benefits.For oily and acne prone skin; calamine lotions are the best savior.You can try the aloe hydration variant of Lacto calamine or as a matter of fact any calamine lotion which contains some hydration ingredients.

      The hydration calamine variants are good for people with oily yet dry skin, and yes you can mix calamine with your favorite moisturizer and you are good to go,make sure the ratio of calamine and moisturizer is 2:1.

  17. great for acne . it dries and pops the zit on its own not wise to pop zits because the poison of the white head popped can reproduce back on to the skin. Great for oily skin to dry with out peeling your skin and medicated calamine lotion great for combination skin to re condition your skin. Apply with two ply toilet tree or cotton balls thicker the better let it dry and repeat if you do not like the white film wash with Luke warm water. twice daily for dry oil free skin once a day for dry and combination skin. Do not pop white heads it damages skin cells as well as pushes the infected oils back into the skin cells you can clog up your skin cells and pores and it will cause a filled zit called a boil. you will need the Dr to remove it surgery from your skin it can infect your skin cells and cause bruising and damaging skin marks and boils that can not be cut off called skin tags it can spread like poison ivy. But with poison ivy can be treated but with boils it can not be and it can scar your skin permanently. Boils and skin tags on face and under the eye are caused by popping zits the oils and infection is pushed back into the skin and the skin reforms the zit into a boil the huge pus marks would need to be treated by a Dr not with calamine lotion but using calamime lotion before it gets bad can work for your skin.
