Acne No More

Acne can be a real problem. There's nothing more embarrassing than knowing that you have a blemish on your face. Immediately, you feel less confident and less self-assured.

If you are an acne sufferer then you are no doubt aware of the dozens of acne treatments out there competing for your business. Acne is serious and because it may take months for an acne treatment to make an impact (or let you down), it is super critical that you pick the right product that has the best chance of working for you.

How then to decide which products to try?

Avoid harsh chemicals, like benzyl peroxide that can irritate your skin, not to mention leave marks on your clothing and pillow!
Pick a product that works 24/7 - acne does not take a break, so your treatment system shouldn't either.
Pick a product that is developed by an accredited dermatologist, preferably someone with extensive experience treating acne.
Pick a product that allows you to try it free first so that you can be sure it works for your skin before you pay for it.

Great tips. It's also important how you wash your face: scrubs, wipes, loofahs and towels aren't good - instead, wash your face with clean fingertips (don't forget the nail brush to clean accumulated dirt and bacteria from under your fingernails!). Human skin is a natural bacteria antagonist (bacteria grows less well on our hands than on sterilised cotton, for instance), and unlike the things listed above, our fingertips don't cause micro-tears that age the skin and invite bacteria to enter.
