How Can I Get Rid Of Acne?

How Can I Get Rid Of Acne? I use various treatment for my Acne, but it keeps coming back, is this curable?

Candy Landdyn  -  Oct. 27

Acne is not curable, but it is controllable. The common denominators in acne are oily skin, bacteria, inflammation and hormonal imbalance, either puberty or changing hormones of adults. Treatments can be categorized as:
1. Habits
2. Topical treatment
3. Antibiotics
4. Prescription medications
5. Over-the-counter treatments

Use a Toner containing salicylic acid, anti-inflammatories and mild enzymes such as papaya. This will help remove bacteria and oil residue after cleansing.

The next product in the system to be used is a treatment cream with benzyl peroxide, 3.5% in the morning and 10% in the evening (used for severe cases). Other ingredients are various nutrients, anti-inflammatories and anti-oxidants.

Finally, the last step is a daily moisturizer, which is fragrance and oil free. Our moisturizer contains vitamins, anti-oxidants and other ingredients helpful for healthy skin.

Your physician or skin care specialist will help you with other suggestions. Be patient on trying different procedure your physician advice you until you found the right treatment for your acne. Best of health.
