One of the most stressing and upsetting part of teenage years is the appearance of pimples and worse, having acne breakouts that do not disappear and continue through adulthood. Acne is reddish and irritating build-ups on the surface of the skin that could be painful or itchy. Most people try to pinch them in order to get rid of the puss and the pimple but most are not aware that this practice is not a good idea at all. Not only will you push the bacteria and dirt harder inside but you will also spread it on the surrounding pores. When the bacteria are pushed deeper it will leave a reddish scar and a bigger hole as the capillaries in that area had been destroyed.
Usually it is the irritation and frustration that leads people to pinch and prick their pimples. Another reason is because they could not find the best acne treatment product for them. Imagine experiencing an Exposed skin care scam or buying a fake Olay product. Instead of being able to treat the skin condition that has been stressing you, it can even aggravate the situation. Fake products can either be diluted by other substances to produce more for less quality or could be made with stronger chemicals to make sure they would deliver faster acne busting effects but could be harmful for the skin. Strong chemicals could cause dry skin, irritation, skin peeling, and burnt skin. So how do you know if you are getting the real good stuff for your acne and other skin problems?
Always check the supplier. It is safe if you are relying on well-known and huge skin care manufacturers and you are directly buying products from their stores and branches. However, if you get them from affiliates or form other general stores, make sure they have a good reputation and that they are listed and legal affiliates and distributors of the said product. Big pharmaceutical companies who produce beauty products always have very strict standards for their branches and affiliates.
Check the ingredients of the product. In choosing which acne treatment product will work for you, you would need to consider several things. These considerations include your skin type, the degree of your acne breakouts, and the cause of the acne. Sensitive skin is very difficult to deal with as it always requires gentle skin care products. To avoid irritating this skin type, it is always best to target the main cause of the acne such as oily skin due to hormones or due to genes. This way you would not need to apply different other products into your face for a long time. Ingredients like benzoyl peroxide should not exceed 0.6% in a treatment solution. More natural products are also preferred by many people including those with allergies.
Presence of guarantees. It is always great to get a product with guarantee but an exaggerated offer of guarantee is not a good sign. Most online products offer the 60 day Full Money Back Guarantee which means if the product performs less than what is expected in that period, the customer could return it and get what he or she paid for back.
Realistic claims. Have you ever heard of overnight treatments? Well some products to have an overnight solution but it is always highly advised to only be used during emergencies and is not a complete solution for acne. Real treatment, especially if we are talking of treating the main cause of acne requires more than just a week. If you will use natural treatment and lifestyle changes, it could take longer. Do not go for products that offer unrealistic claims because the people behind those products are only in for your money.
