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 –
- Creams or potions that kill bacteria
- 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
