Tips For Trying New Acne Treatments

Aug 17, 2007
No two skin types are alike and, therefore, each may react to acne products in a different way. When choosing acne treatments for your skin problem, always take the time to read the packaging, instructions for use, and do a little detective work on the active ingredients. By following a few simple tips, you can help to ensure that your acne treatments are your skin's ticket to clarity.

Before purchasing or using new acne products, be sure to read the outside packaging for any warning and/or cautionary notices regarding the product's use. Most acne products will recommend avoiding contact with the eyes, which is extremely important. It is essential that you follow the manufacturer's instructions on the frequency and instructions for product use. If you are curious about potential side effects, you can either read the outside packaging, or consult with a physician if you are purchasing acne products according to a medical recommendation. While some acne treatments may be available by prescription only, others may be recommended by a physician or dermatologist and still be available as over-the-counter purchases.

When you are using new acne treatments for the first time, always be sure to apply the product to a small test area first and make sure that there is no skin irritation. Once you have concluded that the product is comfortable, continue applying as directed. This important step should also be performed before each use of acne treatments. The reason is because a product may not irritate your skin one day, but may cause discomfort the next. If an extreme reaction or itching should occur with the use of any lotion or skin product, remove it immediately using soap and water.

It can often be difficult to know which acne products are the best choice for your individual skin type and problem. With celebrity endorsements, impressive before and after result photos and testimonials to make every product sound great, it can be a daunting task to search through a sea of acne products. One of the best ways to learn what works and what doesn't is through reliable product reviews from a trusted source. Considering the fact that some acne products can be very expensive, it's important to have an opportunity to explore product results and reviews from another's point of view. Just how important are reviews in any industry? Think of movie reviews, online auction feedback and other information that helps you to make a decision about using a particular product or service. Although skin types vary from one person to another, acne treatments that have proven effective for others may just do the same for you.

If you believe that you have a problem with acne that requires medical attention, consult a physician or dermatologist for a professional evaluation and recommended treatment program.
