Acne treatment- creams 

This is the last part of the mini series of posts we have done on acne and it’s treatment. 
I still hope this last part will be useful to you 

All the same,  the basic underlying knowledge you need to take away is that it’s always a good idea to see a cosmetolgoist or dermatologist before you start trying stuff on your skin.

Having an assessment of your skin is always a good idea and by this I mean,  evaluation  of the problems your skin has.

Acne treatments are practically divided into two – 

  1. Creams or potions that kill bacteria
  2. Creams that unclog the pores 

Most products today are a combination of both.

Creams that kill bacteria usually include 

Benzoyl peroxide, sulphur,neomycin those are the most commonly used agents

Creams that unclog pores would consist of a variety of items like salicylic acid,  Glycolic acid, lactic acid, lipohydroxy salicylic acid and retinol which also helps to rebuild cells 

Whenever you are shopping for a cream for acne treatment it should contain one or two of the above listed agents

Examples of creams you should be looking out for – 

  1. Mary kay acne gel
  2. Oxy10
