Is adult acne your biggest worry? Well, if it’s at it’s infancy stage or beginning to get moderate, you don’t really have to worry too much. But of course, when it’s getting at an advanced stage, you do have to worry about it. Because it usually involves a hefty amount of investment to cure it! Yes! It’s very expensive! So the best cure for adult acne would be prevention itself!
You can actually practise it in your own home! It’s the most reliable and safe treatment! It definitely will prevent your acne from becoming worse and you don’t really have to spend a lot! You really have to take this advice seriously as it will save you from the terrors of curing your acne, let alone finding the right medication for it!
Please take note that these guidelines are for mild acne problems only. If your acne has become very serious and especially when the spreading isn’t stopping, you really need to approach a dermatologist as soon as possible!
Ok. First I’ll introduce to you a medical drug called Benzoyl Peroxide. It can be found over the counter in gels, cleansers, face wash, bar soap, topical creams and lotions, as well as in stronger prescription creams. It is basically a cheap treatment, and is available in both name brands and generic products. All benzoyl peroxide products work in same manner. Benzoyl peroxide is often the initial treatment choice for those suffering from moderate to mild acne. However, you should not over use this drug, as it will leave you with a very dry and red skin.
Make sure you rinse your face thoroughly before you apply the solution. Most of the time, you have to apply it gently on your face in rounded movements of your hand. Oh yes, make sure that your hands are clean before you apply anything on your face. Please take note that you’ve got to be very patient with the results. It will naturally take a few weeks to see the effects of home treatment. So, don’t get disappointed and act rashly by over doing it. You may end up hurting your skin and may lead to new skin problems! Let nature take it’s course and you’ll be acne-free!
Now, for the next home treatment I’ll introduce to you is Salicylic Acid. No, don’t worry. It’s not harmful at all like a typical acid. It’s actually a natural plant extract from the plant called Salix Alba also known as White Willow. Usually they could be found in facial washes or facial pads. Salicylic acid is known for its ability to ease aches and pains and reduce fevers. Salicylic acid is a key ingredient in many skin-care products for the treatment of acne, psoriasis, calluses, corns, keratosis pilaris, and warts. They are especially helpful in getting your pores unclogged and prevent the growth of pimples and adult acne. Again, precautions need to be taken in using them as too much always isn’t good! So use them well!
