Acne Treatment Products For Everyone

Aug 17, 2007
Our face is our facade and unless you're a large breasted lady, it's usually the first thing another human being focus on when approached. It's little wonder then why acne is such a major concern for teenagers and adults alike. Acne can have a devastating affect on self esteem and particularly in the case of teenagers who are still growing and developing into young adults. And here we all are in the 21st century still trying to find that perfect acne treatment.

My nickname at school was Crater Face. I had so many zits it was a job to work out what I looked liked under them all. Even I glanced in the mirror (occasionally), and wondered what I would look like with a face without spots and puss filled bumps. Heck, I looked a mess and the acne treatment back in the early 1970's was nowhere near as advanced as it is today.

Even so, acne is still a huge problem the world over, and each case is unique which means there is yet to be any one acne treatment that serves all sufferers. The good news is there is definitely an acne treatment product out there that will hide if not heal all or most of your problematic skin given time.

I can't sympathize with acne sufferers enough. Although I'm spot-free at the ripe old age of 48 years, I still get the occasional outbreak of adult acne, and I find it just as upsetting today as I did as an adolescent. The difference between past and present is that I've learnt a bit about my particular skin condition. What this simply means is that I now know how to treat it as a result. Additionally, the over-the-shelf acne treatment products are far more fast acting than they ever were, and the pharmacists are more familiar with the problem too, which makes them more of an authority when seeking that much needed advice.

Here's a tip from an old hand; don't pick, don't poke, don't press, shove, push, tease or squeeze any of your spots. Yeah, ok, so you've heard it all before and I bet you're thinking it's just impossible sometimes not to. But the bottom line is that your face will heal quicker and have less chance of scaring if you leave it alone.

I was a real pickaholic but if I'm honest, my face always looked worse after a good squeeze session and NEVER better. Also, by trying to force blind spots to the surface will often result in pushing them deeper under the skin and they could live there and keep reoccurring for years to come, so leave the retched things alone. You'll be glad you did.

Whether you're just seeing your first ever signs of acne (and yes, this can happens with adults too!), or you've already got a face full of blackheads, whiteheads, and blemishes, you can eradicate the problem at best or vastly reduce it at worse. Don't suffer in silence. Either visit your GP, local drug store, or hop online and read up about or join a community of fellow sufferers all of who will be only to happy top freely pass on hints and tips regarding acne treatments.
