Jul 15, 2008
Acne has become one of the few diseases that creates a collective form of unity around the world. It does not give any care whether what country you are from, what racial preferences you have, it only strikes and affects most of the world's population. So for those people who think that they are the only ones who suffer from this form of skin disease, you're all dead wrong. More often than not, you have the same problems as most people from other parts of the world. There has been an annual form of spending millions of dollars just for finding the most efficient and most effective cure for Acne.

Even today, people are still unfortunate because there is no prescription or drug over-the-counter that has created an effective Acne cure. Overall, you can only tend to see options that can provide treatment, control or reduce the damage of Acne. Due to the infamous status of Acne, there have been some conventional medicines that are present in today's market and each and every one of these would like you to trust and believe in their product's miraculous effects. But despite these promising statements, majority of these medications shows some side effects that may even tend to worsen a person's case of Acne.

However, to justify the thought, some people use the infamous over-the-counter treatment for Acne. One of them is Benzoyl Peroxide.

However, despite this product's awesome capability, it still have some faults of its own because it has the capability to cause irritation and rashes. Every consumer must be keen on starting off with lower concentrations of Benzoyl Peroxide and then move up as time goes by to higher concentrations. Some examples of medications that have Benzoyl Peroxide present in them are the following: Clear By Design Gel 2.5%, ProActiv Renewing Cleanser, Fostex 5 Cream, and Neutrogena On-the-Spot Acne Treatment. There is another product that is not as infamous and as commonly used unlike Benzoyl Peroxide, this product is called Glycolic Acid. Despite being less known than Benzoyl Peroxide, Glycolic Acid is believed to be efficacious in providing cleansing of dead skins and making the production of new skin cells stimulated. Glycolic Acid is usually found in some anti aging and acne medications. Another nice over-the-counter treatment for Acne is Salicylic Acid. The dead cells are believed to be cleansed by Salicylic Acid which also turns out to make the skin more softer.

Another option for treatment of Acne is the home treatment method. It is the most used treatment in majority of households around the world. This has been the simplest and less complicated form of Acne treatment method. Improvisation throughout the years formulated this method. Its concept is to always keep the areas that are spot-prone to be very clean. Twice a day washing of the areas that are affected using cleansers is the only method of treating it at home. It's very simple and less costly.
