Acne Skin Care Products: Do They Work?

By: Mike Walden..

Nowadays, one is spoilt for choice as far as acne skin care products go. But before deciding on which one to use, it would be wise for you to take into account the fact that each individual is uniquely different as regards his skin type, the manner in which he has been attacked by the acne syndrome, the level of the ailment and the kind of allergic reactions and sensitivity he manifests in respect of specific ingredients in the product. No wonder then that a product which suits one person perfectly may be partially or even wholly unsuitable for another.

The next thing you must realize is that although the acne manifests itself externally, the basic reason for its appearance is wholly internal and this is also something for you to keep in mind while choosing acne skin care products. Because if you want to prevent acne or try to control it, you must combat it by fixing the internal conditions that cause your acne.

The range of acne skin care products from astringents, toners, cleansers to masks and moisturizers only help in treating the acne superficially. Therefore, knowing more about your skin type and understanding the nature of the acne will help you in selecting the product most suited for your skin. To get rid of the acne permanently, the root cause of the problem should be identified at the same time so that it can be treated simultaneously.

As far as skin care products go, it should always be your endeavor to use products which are made only of natural ingredients, and to ensure that you strictly follow the instructions for its use. Before deciding on the product however, you must make sure that it will not produce any allergic reactions. Finally, do not squeeze or press your pimples in an effort to get rid of them. This method doesn?t work.

There is a simple acne skin care routine which, if followed regularly, will keep the acne under control. The first step is to steam the face and then use a cleanser that suits your skin type. Try not to change the cleanser or to even use it too frequently. Next gently scrub the skin to exfoliate the dead cells from the top layer of the skin. Now use an antibacterial or antifungal lotion like tea tree oil to remove the spots. Apply a face pack to restore the acid-alkaline balance. Finally use a little natural moisturizer with oil control properties.

Buy the acne skin care products in consultation with your dermatologist and follow the directions on the skin care products carefully and soon you will be rid of the acne problem.
