New Acne Treatment

The psychological harm acne or Zits causes it’s many sufferers should not be underestimated; but things are gradually improving for sufferers. Medical investigation and research is ongoing and making interesting discoveries; in fact many new remedies are proving very effective. Despite the number of acne skin care products currently available on the market, they are broadly categorized into three distinctly separate groups:

* Those that help prevent the condition

* Those available at a drugstore or over-the-counter

* Specialized, on-prescription acne products

General or preventative acne products form a large section of the skin care market; this sector deals with skin creams, lotions and cleansers that can help stop the problem. In the real sense, these products are just those that should be part of your daily routine; often used by those who want to prevent future skin problems from occurring. Other acne skin care products, like skin cleansers for instance, are more specific about their job; they ensure the facial pores (and other areas) remain free of oil. When the pores become clogged with this oil, bacteria which can cause the problem begin to grow.

General skin care treatments also include special exfoliation products like skin peels; there is now a variety of this type of product available over the counter. The peels clean the skin by removing all surface pollution and dead skin cells which can block the pores. The growth of the skin care market has allowed even more specialized acne skin care products to be available without the need to visit the doctor. Treatments that are effective contain the ingredients benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid; these ingredients are used to remove the additional oil in the pores of the skin.

Although benzoyl peroxide works well, reactions can happen so it is suggested that any skin care product containing this should not have more than 5.5 percent of the active ingredient; if a reaction occurs, a cleaner or cream containing alpha hydroxy acid should be safe. Because we all have different types of skin, more than one type of acne skin care product may need to be tried; however, if nothing you try seems to work, you should contact a dermatologist. Only doctors or skin care specialists can prescribe some medications, including the use of antibiotics and certain ointments.

In some case your doctor may suggest the pustules are drained of harmful contents under local anesthetic; never try to squeeze your zits however, as it can lead to permanent damage of your skin. Hormone treatment might be suggested as hormone changes can cause skin problems; this type of skin care treatment has been very effective in many cases. The end result is dealing with this skin complaint is not the problem it once was, there are now a huge range of products specifically formulated for the task.
