Fighting Back Against Teenage Acne
Being a teenager is tough enough without having your life complicated by that curse of curses -- acne. It can put a dent in your confidence at a critical time in your life if you don't do something about it. If you happen to be unfortunate enough to be experiencing this problem, either in the shape of severe breakouts or less severe but ongoing pimples and blemishes, the use of a blemish acne cream may help you.
There are a bewildering array of acne creams and treatments on the market today, making it all too easy to become confused as to what product to choose and how to approach the task of getting rid of your spots. Add to that the fact that some people can find it an embarrassing subject to ask for advice about, and it's no wonder that some would rather stick their heads in the sand and hope it will all just go away!
Skin care and dermatology clinics have been popping up all over the place in the last few years, so you are likely to find one near you that will be able to recommend an acne cream suitable for you. If you would rather not approach someone for advice, and that's a perfectly understandable way to feel, you could try one of the solutions below. You can get them in most pharmacies, or they are readily available online if you prefer.
SkinCeuticals' range of acne products includes a Blemish Control Gel that helps to exfoliate dead skin cells, while at the same time unclogging blocked pores to reduce the chances of a spot forming in the first place. It is strong enough to ensure that blemishes disappear quickly, yet mild enough to prevent skin discoloration or irritation. Like many acne treatments, Blemish Control Gel contains salicylic acid, which is a commonly used and proven acne treatment.
Another fast-acting treatment is Correct & Perfect Spot Treatment by MD Skincare, which is great for tackling bumpy acne. Once spots become raised like this there is some amount of infection or inflammation present. This treatment works by drawing the blockage and collected matter out of the pore and by drying it up to flatten the skin again. It also deals with the bacteria that contribute to acne. Ideally though, you should continue to use a general blemish cream, like the SkinCeuticals gel or MD Skincare's own All-Over Blemish Solution to prevent your spots reaching the point of becoming infected.
Another thing that is worth trying, especially during the teenage years, is to make adjustments to your diet to allow for the hormonal changes going on in your body. Everything that you eat affects your body in one way or another, and that includes the health and general appearance of your skin. By ensuring that you eat plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables, and drink several glasses of fresh water a day, you should very quickly begin to see positive results in the clarity of your skin.
