Acne is a bothersome problem. It can effect the young and old. It effects both genders. It is not isolated to the face. Sometimes it can seem that there is no solution and no end to the problem. However, it can be effectively treated. There are many skin care products available. It is possible to find the solution for you and your individual case. The costs can vary and the treatment time can be reasonable. It is possible to find a solution that fits your budget.There are a few different types of treatments. Acne skin care products can be broken down to three main categories

Preventive acne skin care products

The most popular general treatments are acne-prevention . Cleansers and make-up removers attempt to prevent the onset of acne. They are sometimes described as part of the daily acne routine. They attempt to limit the production of sebum/oil and prevent clogging of the skin pores. Oil trapped in the skin can lead to bacteria and an acne outbreak. Another common form is the exfoliation products like skin peels. They remove dead skin to prevent the growth of bacteria

Over-the-counter, specialised acne skin care products

More specialized products are available without a prescription. Vanishing creams extract the extra oil from the skin. Benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid are the typical main ingredients. Both kill bacteria (and hence acne). It is always wise to start with a lower concentration of benzoyl peroxide (e.g. 5%). This will lower possible allergic reactions.Another popular acne skin care product is a Alpha-hydroxy-acid based moisturizer . Use trial and error to find an effective product that works for you. If acne persists you should contact a dermatologist.

Prescription acne skin care products.

A Dermatotligist can prescribe a treatment for acne. It can take many forms including topical ointments or oral antibiotics. Dermatologist may suggest surgical procedure to remove the contents of pustules. many individuals attempt to do this and it can result in permament skin damage. Another effective treatment is hormone based. These have been effective in may cases.

It is important to keep exploring your personal solutions. It may be a simple solution or a combination of the above is the best fit for your case. But, there is a light at the end of the tunnel and a treatment is out there for you. Consult a doctor and explore your possibilities.
