Problematic Skin Acne

Mar 29, 2008
Those who have never suffered with acne (Zits) cannot possibly understand the stress it causes; however, medical science continues to look at new remedies. The number of people afflicted around the world is huge so science research is making advances; as a result there are a variety of new products available to help prevent and treat skin conditions. There are a broad range of acne skin care product categories available:

Internet or Drugstores: Preventative medication

Those available at a drugstore or over-the-counter

Prescription: Controlled medication prescribed by a doctor

The preventative products are formulated to treat the skin in an effort to prevent acne from arising like skin cleansers and makeup removers. This is a market where many people use this type of product every day to condition their skin. They use these products to protect their skin from the environment even if they do not have the acne condition and to prevent problematic outbreaks in the future

There are acne skin care products that are more specialized in there approach and are formulated to reduce and limit the amount of oil in the pores of our skin. Excess oil needs to be stopped from clogging the pores as this oil make it easier for bacteria to grow, exacerbating the condition.

Exfoliation skin peels have proved quite effective as a skin care treatment and at controlling the problem. There are now more and more of these types of products available over the counter. This type of peel helps reduce the chance of oil clogging up the pores as well as removing other skin impurities; this can reduce the bacterium growth on your skin.

There are specialized acne skin care products available over-the-counter, they do not require the need of a prescription. Products that contain the chemical benzoyl peroxide and the naturally occurring salicylic acid are used in vanishing creams. They work by removing the excess oil from the skin and halt the growth of acne.

You should start with a product that has lower concentration of benzoyl peroxide (e.g. 5%) and see how your skin responds. Alpha-hydroxy-acid based moisturizers are also popular as a skin care regime. It might just be a case of trial and error, if nothing seems to work speak to your dermatologist for any advice or try a different acne skin care product.

Products that your dermatologist or doctor will recommend will only be available on prescription, they may include a course of antibiotics or topical ointments. Under certain circumstances, having the infected material removed from the pores under a local anesthetic may be suggested by your dermatologist. This is something you should never attempt yourself.
