There is a wide variety of acne treatments now available. You can find everything from prescription mediation to face washes. The market provides a solution for every individual. There is no reason why anyone has to go through life with blemishes, scars or low self-esteem due to acne. Treatment can be undertaken by the individual or in conjunction with a dermatologist. Your individual program depends on the severity and response to your personal acne treatments.
There is an assortment of over the counter products designed to clear up your face, including bar soap and special face washes. Finding the product that works best for your skin and lifestyle is the key to treating acne. There is not a single product that will work for everyone. Your search may involve trial and error, but it is important that you give the products enough time to work. Whether you use over-the-counter or prescription treatments, you should allow a minimum of a few weeks to evaluate the product. Excessive use of any acne product can cause redness, dryness of the face and can actually lead to more acne. Therefore, it is imperative you follow the directions precisely to avoid harmful side effects and to receive the full benefits of the products.
Washing your face a few times a day with a mild soap can usually clear up a lot of acne by ridding the face of excess oils. However, over washing your face could lead to excess drying and the production of more pore-clogging oil, which in turn could cause more acne. If you have a case of acne that requires more treatment than face washing alone, there are many prescription medications and topical creams that can clear up mild to very severe acne.
Whatever you choose as your acne treatment, keep in mind that it takes time for results. Overusing a product will typically aggravate your acne. Frequently switching acne products will irritate the skin, so it is best to stick with one, as long as it effective. If the acne persists and does not improve after trying scrubs and face washes, consult a dermatologist for more aggressive treatment.
