Treating Acne At Home

If you struggle with acne, you are probably constantly trying to find a cure. You try product after product, but none of them seem to make a difference.
You wash your face morning, noon, and night, and never fail to exfoliate or apply a deep-pore cleansing mask. You follow every acne-reducing tip you can find, which means that you have completely eliminated things like French fries and chocolate from your diet–yet, your acne remains. In fact, it may even appear to get worse. Your frustration is easy to understand. Acne sufferers often perpetuate their problem without realizing it. Myths about the true causes of acne have resulted in a long list of treatments that serve no purpose, and may even cause harm.
 

Treating Acne

 

Many people believe that acne is the result of dirty skin or poor hygiene. Not true. In fact, scrubbing and over cleansing the skin can actually cause acne to worsen because it irritates and dries the skin. If you are currently trying to scrub your acne away, stop it! There are multiple things that cause acne, but acne caused by bacteria and hormones is the most common form. Acne-causing bacteria live naturally on the skin’s surface.

The presence of bacteria is not a result of dirty skin. This bacterium is an irritant and converts the oil produced by your skin into substances that irritate the skin even further. Hormones that cause acne trigger oil glands to overproduce. The excess oil plugs the pores, resulting in acne. The best way to treat acne at home may not be what you expect.

The number one rule to observe when treating acne at home is to minimize irritation. Wash your face in the morning and in the evening with a mild cleanser and warm water. Find a cleanser that is specifically designed for acne, like B. Kamin’s Hydrating Acne Wash. Next, apply a topical acne lotion.

There are thousands of products on the market that claim to produce clear skin; however, the most effective acne lotions, like B. Kamin’s Medicated Acne Gel, contain one of two key ingredients, benzoyl peroxide and/or salicylic acid. These ingredients function differently but achieve similar results–they accelerate the loss of dead skin cells to reduce pore blockage. You can spot treat acne with benzoyl peroxide.

Living with acne can be frustrating and stressful; however, you can take a proactive role in reducing the toll acne takes on your skin by educating yourself about home care. Talk to your dermatologist or skincare professional about products that are known to be effective and determine the best home remedy for you to use so you can move confidently toward an effective regimen.
