3 Acne Fighting Skincare Products

Acne isn’t just a plague that hits preteens and teens— in fact, many adults in their twenties and thirties also suffer from some sort of acne as well. If you have acne and just can’t seem to get rid of it, ensure that you are giving your skin the best care it needs with the following over-the-counter skincare products.

  1. Toner

acne treatment rochester A toner is a must-have when it comes to acne. By removing excess oil on your face after you wash it both morning and night, toners act as a sort of oil stabilizer on your face— causing you to omit oil that is breaking you out without having any sort of drying after math. When shopping for an over-the-counter toner for acne, look at an acne line because those toners will be specifically targeted to customers like you.

  1. Face Wash

If you’re the type of person who can use the same bar of soap for your hair, body, and face, but are breaking out— your soap could actually be the culprit. Body soap isn’t designed to treat the sensitive skin on your face and could in fact clog your pores and cause you to breakout instead— that’s why you need an acne face wash. Typically equipped with acne fighting ingredients like salicylic acid, acne face washes are designed to rid your skin or oil and dirt that may be causing breakouts while simultaneously targeting any current facial blemishes that you may have.

  1. Spot Treatment

In addition to using a gentle facial moisturizer everyday, try to combat your acne with a spot treatment gel or cream. Filled with acne fighting ingredients like benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid, spot treatments are designed for patients to apply directly to a blemish. Once applied directly to the blemish, the spot treatment should start to dry it up and leave you with clearer looking skin.

As you can see, it’s important to find skincare products that are used to specifically treat and target your acne. If you suffer from acne and would like to learn more about how to treat it, contact The Plastic Surgery Group of Rochester today!
