How to Treat your Acne Effectively

Aug 21, 2008
If you have heard most myths, then you have probably heard that chocolate causes acne, not your genetics. The exact opposite is true, and 1 in 2 teenagers is diagnosed with mild to severe acne. Certain products have a better advantage at clearing up acne, and some ingredients do not work at all.

Your face is a delicate living organ, and its important to take care of it while you are young. If you have acne now, chances are you will be stuck with scarring later. There are several options for removal of acne, and most are an easy and quick way to fix the problem. Salicylic acid, antibiotics, green tea, tea tree oil, and hydrogen peroxide are all used for treatment of acne. What you choose is entirely up to you!

Salicylic acid is used in most products today, it has a better reputation of being gentle and fast acting. The chemical removes dead skin build up, which is the main cause of acne pimples. Salicylic acid is also deep acting, allowing it to penetrate more than what is seen on the surface.

If you want to clean up mild acne, and brighten your skin tone, then Green Tea infused products are for you. Green tea has hydration benefits, whether it is consumed in liquid form, or put into a skin cream. When combined with other active ingredients, you end up with a very potent treatment. Green tea is also packed with antioxidants and other things that will help your skin greatly in the long run. Try a green tea moisturizer, or cleanser.

As a last result for those with harsh acne and cystic acne, Hydrogen Peroxide creams can be obtained. They are offered in most dermatologists offices, and over the counter. Hydrogen Peroxide is a harsh chemical however, and you will need to use a moisturizer when using this treatment. Those with sensitive skin may not be able to withstand the usage of hydrogen peroxide on their delicate faces. It can cause an irritation that is itchy, and turns your face lobster colored. A less harsh option would be tea tree oil, or products infused with it. While it does have drying properties, it will clear up light to mild acne rather quickly. Models and celebrities swear by its fast acting ability.

Closing Comments

In the end, if you have acne, its best to get it fixed as soon as possible. As you age your skin loses its ability to heal quickly. All of these chemicals and treatments are fast acting, and should leave your face in its healthiest state yet. Remember to always moisturize your face after using a harsh product such as hydrogen peroxide. Most of all, enjoy your new healthy skin!
