There are countless products on the market today that offer acne treatment. However, not all of them are effective or of good quality, so they will only make you spend your money without getting results. Below, we explain a little more about how to treat acne and what products to use.
1. See a Dermatologist
It is not recommended that you self-medicate or use home remedies as they can make it worse. It is best to see a dermatologist in order to find the best treatment for your type of acne.
2. It Cannot Be Cured, It Can Be Controlled
Even with the best treatment, it is normal that some pimples continue to appear. Do not panic, follow the treatment very carefully, and do not pinch the pimples, as this can cause blemishes or scars that are difficult to remove.
3. Protect Yourself from the Sun
Some of the acne treatments make your skin more sensitive to UV radiation, so we recommend that you avoid exposure to the sun from 10 am to 4 pm, which is when it is most intense. If you are going out, wear sunglasses and a hat or cap, and sunscreen suitable for your skin.
4. Be Careful with the Use of Creams and Make-Up
Acne is largely caused by excess oil on the skin, so adding oily products such as creams or makeup will make it worse. Only use the right products for your skin type and follow your daily cleansing routine.
