Skin Blemishes

Skin Blemishes-Acne

Acne is not purely for teenager. An adult acne is a chronic condition.
Although there is a saying that it is beauty inside that matters, the
unsightly blemishes and scars contribute to the insecurities of ladies
about their physical appearance.

While there are several anti-acne product lines in the market, the
most effective way of fighting this skin blemish is thru regular program
of preventive maintenance to loosen oil plugs and acne causing
bacteria that clog the skin pores.

With a soft wash loth and a mild soap such as Dove oe Neutrogena,
keep the pores as clean as possible.

Some find cleanser that contains salicylic acid helps loosen plugs
of debris. An antibacterial lotion that contains benzoyl peroxide
prevents new blemishes to form .

Accutane was found to be very effective for acne but its use
is restriced because it can cause birth defects aside from decreased
night vision and pink eye.
