Finding the right acne treatments can be challenging. Most of us have
different types of skin and the right treatment usually depends on the
type of skin you have. One wrong acne treatment can result in an even
worse condition that can bother you for years.When choosing the method of getting rid of acne, consider the ingredients of the product. Or
better yet, prevent acne from occurring by keeping your skin cleansed,
toned and moisturised.
When treating acne the most common ingredients used by doctors are
Benzoyl peroxide, such as Brevoxyl or Triaz. Salicylic acid, such as
Propa pH or Stridex, and topical and oral antibiotics, such as
clindamycin, doxycycline, erythromycin, and tetracycline.
Cleaning your skin does wonder in keeping your face acne free. You can
wash your face twice a day with a pH balanced cleanser and essential
oils. Keeping your face exfoliated regularly can also help, as well as
using clay masks containing sulphur. After cleansing, it is recommended
to use both a toner and moisturiser.
In some cases, acne can go on for years. Most of the time acne is mild.
But untreated acne can last 4-5 years before settling. Acne can leave
scars due to an inflamed lesion.
