Acne can really lower a person's self confidence and leave them feeling hopeless and helpless, but with so many different products out on the market you are sure to find one that will cure your acne.
Step # 1 – Unclog your pores with a product that helps to remove all the oil and dirt off your skin. Any product that contains salicylic acid is great. Be sure to use sun screen while using any product that contains salicylic acid. Your skin is more susceptible to burning while using a product with salicylic acid.
Step # 2 – Kill the bacteria that is causing the acne to form by using a special gel that contains benzoyl peroxide. Make sure to apply once in the morning and once at night for best results. Benzoyl peroxide can dry out or irritate your skin. So if you have sensitive skin you may want to try something less abrasion like products containing triclosan or cholorhexidine. Make sure you keep your skin very hydrated with an oil free moisturizer.
Step # 3 – Be consistent with using acne products. It is also important to have a balanced diet and exercise regularly this can help control acne. Be patient it usually takes anywhere from three to eight weeks to see any kind of improvement. If you still have not seen any improvement after 9 weeks I recommend contacting a dermatologist. They are highly qualified in treating acne and other skin problems. If you follow these simple instructions you can nip acne in the bud.
