Acne Control Tips

Acne skin treatment products help control outbreaks

When it comes to looking your best for a special occasion, there are few things more devastating than glancing in the mirror and finding a zit. Your short-term solution is likely to use a concealer to hide the blemish, and then to use a spot acne treatment to hurry the healing process. A common home remedy includes creating a paste from baking soda, or even a crushed aspirin, and dabbing the problem area. The paste dries the blemish and reduces the redness. The best acne treatment, however, is a commitment to a cleansing routine that will keep your skin clean and clear for the long term.

Treatments for adult acne

Recent studies report that adult acne is on the rise. No surprise, really, when you consider that stress is among the leading causes of acne. Our busy lifestyles, coupled with hormonal swings that occur well into adulthood, compound the problem. Experts say that the number of adults seeking products that treat the condition is on the rise – with more people ages 20 to 40 reportedly dealing with post-adolescent acne.

Most products claim that regular use will reduce oily skin that, when not controlled, may provide a breeding ground for bacteria. Neutrogena Oil Free Acne Wash, for example, cleanses skin of excess oils which helps reduce clogged pores that often result in blemishes. And Clinique Acne Solutions offers a line of cleansing and concealing products designed to clarify and cover.

Controlling teen acne

The treatment for teen acne is much the same as for adults, with special emphasis on finding the best spot acne treatment for those unexpected outbreaks. While the condition itself requires attention, the emotional aspect of teen acne must also be dealt with – and for many teenagers, that often means finding a quick fix.

Murad Acne Spot Treatment utilizes both sulfur and zinc oxide to heal and soothe facial acne. And the Dermalogica acne product line is dual purpose, promising both treatment and a concealer that makes it a perfect solution for daytime use.

The bottom line for any individual struggling with acne is to keep the skin clean and as oil-free as possible, and to carefully choose the right product for their skin type.
