Why Is Acne Ruining Your Life
People who suffer from acne should, at the very least, learn what skin care products are available that will help keep acne under control. I'm sure you understand how that a ton of acne skin care products are available so it is not difficult to find skin care products, it is hard to figure out what is actually going to work for you. Also everyone is unique, so what works for you will not work for another person. Don't get discouraged, you will find a product that works for you, it just may take some time to find the right thing.
Retin-a is a acne skin care product that is applied to your skin and to treat acne, acne scarring and stretch marks. There are other topically applied acne products out there such as essential oils. Essential oils have become very popular and can even be found in some grocery stores and large drug stores. You will definitely be able to find them in a natural foods store. Try specific essential oils such as tea tree oil, Rosewood oil, clove oil and Bergamot oil.
One prescription product that has benefited a lot of people is Accutane, but you must have a prescription from your doctor to buy this product. Accutane is only prescribed to people who have bad acne because this is a very strong medication that you swallow and it does have side effects. Never take any medication without looking into the side effects. Sometimes it seems as if the side effects are worse than the problem!
An extremely popular, non-prescription acne skin care product is ProActiv. ProActiv main fighting power is it's prescription strength Benzoyl peroxide. This is a system with three parts to it; a renewing cleanser, revitalizing toner and repairing lotion.
If you do not have severe acne and are just starting your search for acne skin care, you should try the most natural products like the essential oils first, if those do not work then you can move on to more aggressive treatment and go from there. If you have severe acne then you should definitely be seeking the help of a professional. Specifically a dermatologist. They really are there to help you and you should not put off getting help from them. For example, my nephew had a severe case of acne. When they took him to the dermatologist that doctor told them that his face was totally infected. He ended up taking an antibiotic and everything cleared up beautifully. Now, he looks great! So you see there may be other things going on other than acne that you will not know unless you go to a doctor. The sooner you get your acne under control the happier and confident you will feel.
