Acne Skin Care Guide

There will probably be a time in the not too distant future where the condition of acne (Zits) will be completely curable, but for the time being, medical advancements continue to improve its treatment. Skin care treatments are plentiful and research into the condition is continuing.

The products used would depend on the severity of the problem and whether it is a condition that can be treated without a prescription from the doctor.

General or preventative products form part of a large skin care market, they deal with
skin creams, lotions and cleansers that can help to stop acne. We should all use products like this to maintain our skin and prevent future problems from occurring.

Many of these cleansers act in almost exactly the same way as acne skin care products which have been formulated to limit the amount of oil or sebum forming in the pores. When the pores become clogged with this oil, bacteria which can cause the problem begin to grow.

Exfoliation skin peels have proved quite effective as a skin care treatment and at controlling the problem. This type of peel helps reduce the chance of oil clogging up the pores as well as removing other skin impurities, this can reduce the bacterium growth on your skin.

There is a huge market for these types of acne skin care products as they don't require a consultation with a dermatologist. These ingredients are used to remove the additional oil in the skins pores.

You should start with a product that has lower concentration of benzoyl peroxide (e.g.5%) and see how your skin responds. If this is proving difficult, your dermatologist should be able to help.

Products that your dermatologist or doctor will recommend will only be available on prescription, they may include a course of antibiotics or topical ointments. Never try to squeeze your zits as it can lead to permanent damage of your skin.

Your doctor may even suggest a course of hormone therapy as a skin care treatment. This means that a sufferer does not have to put up with this condition anymore.
