There are so many acne skin care products on the market now competing with each other that we don’t even know which to choose. Some people have to try several brands before they find what’s right for them. Some of these products could vary in prices and a lot of times they are expensive because they are name brand. Other times some skin care products are costly because of the ingredients in the solution. These products come in a few different forms like ointments, medicated pads, and liquid for like a tonic.
There are over the counter ointments and prescription ointments in a creamy form that you would apply to the affected area. If you buy it off the shelf you don’t have to worry too much because it wouldn’t be too strong but if a dermatologist gives you a prescription then you should use as directed by the doctor. Those with sensitive skin should be very careful because some acne skin care products might have side effects and may cause skin irritation.
Medicated pads could also help people with acne problems. You see them at supermarket and you can even get them from a drugstore. These pads are very easy to use. They are wet and sealed tightly to preserve wetness. Medicated pads look like wet paper towels except they are round and cotton-like. All you have to do is wipe over your face with one especially the area with the most acne. You will notice all the dirt on the pad and feel the freshness right away. Just be careful to seal the package or container after usage otherwise the rest of the medicated pads will dry up and become useless.
What I like to use the most for my face is a liquid tonic. A tonic is kind of like rubbing alcohol, you will need a cotton ball to help you rub it over your face. This works like an astringent, it kills bacteria on your face and prevents further skin blemishes. After you are done you will notice your skin a little tighter and shinier. There are many different brands and colors you can choose from. I like to choose the strongest solution because my skin isn’t sensitive at all but you might need to test a small section of your skin before you try anything. For many people a strong solution will cause some irritation.
If you have pimples, zits, blackheads and acne you can try an ointment, medicated pads or a skin tonic. These acne skin care products have chemicals that work to fight blemished and help you get acne free skin. Some people are blessed with clear skin and some just have to work a little hard to get it.
