What you need to know about Acne

Did you know acne can be made worse by:

  • Washing your skin too hard
  • Pollution or high humidity
  • Pressure from hats, helmet, and tight clothing
  • For women, hormonal changes, including menses, and perimenopause
  • Oily skin products, such as lotion or cosmetics
  • Stress and physical illness.

 

What are some over the counter medications that might help to treat mild to moderate acne?

  • Benzoyl peroxide: destroys bacteria found in pores.
  • Resorcinol: reduces blackheads and whiteheads.
  • Salicylic acid: increases the shedding of dead skin cells that can clog pores causing blackheads and whiteheads.
  • Sulfur: helps reduce blackheads and whiteheads.

 

Remember acne treatment takes time.

A new treatment may take 8 to 12 weeks before you see an improvement.
