Getting your acne under control is the most important thing for anyone that suffers from acne. Since it is the most common skin disorder and there is no known cure, it is important to use the correct treatment to get it under control. Knowing what each treatment does can help you obtain this acne control you want.
If you are one of the unfortunate people that suffer from severe acne you will need to speak with your doctor about a prescription strength acne medication that can help you get your acne controlled. The most commonly prescribed acne medication is a topical retinoid cream. The topical retinoid cream control the acne by rapidly exfoliating the skin and therefore, getting rid of the dead skin cell. It also helps decrease the amount of sebum that is produced. Most retinoid creams also contain benzoyl peroxide. The benxoyl peroxide is important in controlling the acne because it kills the bacteria and reduces inflammation.
Benzoyl peroxide can also control mild acne on its own. It is found in many different over-the-counter acne products and is mild enough for anyone to use. Not only does it kill the acne-causing bacteria and
reduces inflammation, but it also helps prevent acne from forming by keeping the pores unclogged. Another type of treatment that can help control mild acne is alcohol and acetone. They work together to help treat the acne. The alcohol kills the bacteria and the acetone dries up the sebum. Alcohol and acetone can also help control moderate acne. They can cause skin dryness so should not be used if you have severely sensitive skin.
Salicylic acid and sulfur are both great treatments that can help control moderate acne. They work by shedding the dead skin cells and drying up any excess sebum. Without the dead skin cell or sebum, the pores will not become clogged. These treatments come with some side effects that include burning, rash, itchiness and redness.
To get your acne under control you should use one or more of these acne products. Be sure to use the correct acne products that are targeted to your individual symptoms. When you use the correct products you will be on your way to an acne free life.
